Thank for opening my eyes and my heart to this gentle way of connecting non-verbally with animals. It was incredible to see how my cat and dog responded almost immediately to my calm state of being without any intention on my part to connect. I started the calming technique, and was deeply focused on one spot and on listening and feeling touch as guided in your video when I noticed that both my cat and my dog had climbed onto the sofa next to me and were fully stretched out and fast asleep next to each other. They haven't relaxed like this before - my cat, Garfield does not trust dogs as all. He tolerates them. And my dog, Minx, is a very timid rescue and very rarely stretches out to sleep, and definitely not next to a cat. I am hoping that this is only the start of a wonderful new way of connecting. Thank you so much!
