CR as a mindful practice, which you are sharing with your animals regularly, usually at the quieter times. This reduction of anxiety can have some pretty profound results. It deepens your connection and acts as a rehabilitation tool. By reducing your animals thinking levels right down to what we call that zero level, a dream-like state occurs which is very healing physically and emotionally. There is a high possibility that this practice alone can resolve a lot of behavioral problems purely because the individual becomes way more relaxed in their lives and more able to cope with life's traumas, but if these traumas are very strong and reactive, we are going to need the next step to help them.
At the time of 'reaction to a fear', it's very hard to get your animals attention, let alone help them understand that there is nothing to be afraid of. At the time of reaction, the individual's mind is very high and their attention is engulfed in the problem. They are taking their own fear responsibility and they have very little ability to listen. (People are very similar to animals in this respect.) This creates that negative repetition of behavior.
If the person does manage to get the animal's attention by raising their voice and physically correcting the behavior, it means that the person has increased their thinking levels to match the animal. Now they are both reacting to the situation and the animal and the person both learn to be more reactive at this time. This is not an effective way to make changes. Instead it's an effective way to be more anxious. Wouldn't it be amazing if you and your animals at these high reaction times could just take a chill pill? One that makes you feel peaceful quickly. No more reaction and what a different view you would both have! No more anxiety dictating and controlling the behavior. Instead the wisdom and self-learning that is linked to having a peaceful mind. This is exactly what realisation learning delivers. The only thing you need for that is your consciousness. The ability to reduce high thinking levels at the point of reaction so that your animal and you experience the same situation with a more relaxed outlook.
You cannot make or force an animal or a person to be confident but we can create an environment where they learn confidence themselves. The fastest change happens when the individual realizes their own learning. So the fastest change happens by slowing down.
Perception is based on how we feel. Fear of the known and unknown will create high thinking levels (7 and above represent overthinking). Fear is in that category and it manifests as a perceived problem. How we feel reflects the perception or belief of the situation that we're in.
Reacting to fear creates more fear in your life. Animals and people are very similar. By having a tool that reduces thinking levels in these high thinking areas acts as a huge turning point. Change the feelings to change the perception. When we reduce thinking levels, the individual sees the same situation from a calmer, more measured perspective. When this process happens they are engaged in realisation learning, which basically means from this different perspective they can create new beliefs. They start to self-learn and this is a fast way of learning new behaviors. The focus is on reducing high thinking levels to stimulate self-learning, rather than having to have all of these different tools for different types of behavior.
Animas are picking up on thoughts and feelings of their humans. If they are so sensitive that they can feel your thoughts when you are miles away from home, what happens when we're feeling emotional around them. That must literally be like a loud speaker to them. It's very hard to understand how much of the human's emotions our pets are actually picking up on. This is why TT is all about healing rather than correction.
Reaction is the feeling reflecting. The animal reacts, we start to react because we're close to the animal, the animal sees us reacting and they react and off it goes into a spiral and often this can turn into a real panic and yes, anyone who is shrieking at their animals, they are definitely reacting.
3 ways animals and humans react: 1/ an animal reacts to the humans issue; 2/ the human actually reacts to the animals issue (dog is from a rescue, had a hard past); 3/ animal and human share similar experiences (not together), that have created the same feeling, so they're both wearing a particular emotion. Then it's very easy for both of them to react to each other.
We're going to have to move away from the idea that animals need correcting and that we need to take the role of the pack leader because it's not true. There is a much better approach that benefits all of us.
Domestic animals are so close to us as family members and the idea of being dominant with them is just totally ridiculous and outdated, especially if they're reflecting our emotions. From our understanding, the peaceful member of the herd or pack is the true leader, not the assertive one. Even the wildlife presenters are questioning the 'leader-theory': there is no documentation or evidence that says that in a wolf pack, the dominant one is the leader. This is human thinking and understanding and it's a long way from animal truth.
PM is like a truth filter and your old memories they're emotions and they're like drama, just l
