Sometimes Animals Know

2 posts in this topic

We've had a lot of upheavals and heavy changes in the last few months, some of them hard on the heart. I've been going through some more searching and changes with my kin-ness, discovering some new (or old) things and bringing them to the front. My phantom limbs have become more frequent and stronger, to the point where I have to watch myself sometimes because I feel like I'm about to close the door on a tail. Now, I've been trying to give a little more attention to the other two pups now that we've lost one because, well, there's more love to go around. One of the girls usually loves to get attention, especially from me, but about a week ago she started getting standoffish around me. The night it really occurred to me that her behavior had changed she got up for attention, went over to my mom and put her body between us like she was blocking me from mom even though I was across the room (this dog isn't the jealous type), and my mom jokingly said the dog was protecting her from me. I realized that was very likely to be the situation. She wasn't being aggressive, and still isn't, but she has still been acting a little oddly around me like she's a little nervous or uncertain. All I wanted to say to my mom was that Ella (the dog) was, in fact, probably doing just that and that she knows. I just laughed and didn't say anything but since she's continued to be a little weird around me I decided to test the waters a bit. I've noticed she is the most off when I'm really feeling my kin-self, especially when my phantom limbs are present. Our other dog, Freya, is too dopey on her seizure meds to notice or care. So I've come to the conclusion: the dog definitely knows. This is the first time I've really had the experience of an animal reacting to my spiritual presence (fairly certain my cats just don't gaf).

Does anyone else have any animal reactions they'd like to share?

I wish I could contribute to this thread a bit better...but: Luna and I found eacother in 1998, before my awakening began and other than acting concerned through the really rough patches of my awakening - there were days when I felt so bad that I was bedridden, then Luna never seemed much affected by me being Otherkin...or in other words, she didn't give a toss :lol: As long as mommy provided her with food, water, little "chats", ice cream (she used to love ice cream so much) and cuddles then apparently all was well :smile:
