Is there a reason why I love my pet so much?

There's a simple (and incredible) reason why you love your pet


When you look at your beloved animal, do you ever wonder, "Why do I love my pet so much?"


Through our experiences of unconditional love, our pets are helping human consciousness evolve through their soul's "mission."


Through unconditional love, an animal can really help us become happier, emotionally healthier people.


Your furry friends come into your life to show you unconditional love and teach you lessons you aren't able to see for yourself.


Your pet brings you more joy than anything else in your life, which is why you love them so much.


Animals make you feel unconditional love


Despite the fact that it may seem odd to think that animals are capable of giving and receiving unconditional love, they can. It probably comes more easily to them than to some humans to give and receive unconditional love.


Understanding the difference between an animal soul and a human soul can help explain how animals do this.


When left to their own devices, meaning without human interference, animals love and accept themselves in a way most humans cannot.


Birds don't question their abilities to scavenge for food; they simply find it.


There is no reason for a deer to have low self-esteem just because he isn't the leader.


The bee doesn't avoid gathering nectar because he thinks the other bees will collect nectar better, and he couldn't match them.


There is a beautiful balance in the natural world where animals simply accept themselves as they are without judgment.


Despite this, animals still strive to achieve more in their lives.


Horse herds, lion prides, and other groups are competitive. A lion that fails to overthrow his king does not slink away thinking, "I'm not good enough."


It has no bearing on the lion's internal dialogue about his worth. Animals understand their intrinsic value in a way that nothing could ever contradict it.


Humans base their belief in themselves on external experiences like success and failure, the number of friends and followers they have, and even what others tell them.


Because we have not yet mastered unconditional love, we often value ourselves based on what we can accomplish.


Fortunately, our animal friends come into our lives to help us by fulfilling their animal soul missions.


The mission of the animal soul


We love our pets because of their animal soul mission.


A mastery of unconditional love is what all beings strive for and crave. As you grow at the soul level, you will come closer to mastering this.


When you have an a-ha moment or realize something about your past, you accept more of the vibration of unconditional love into your life.


When you live a fun, exciting, fulfilling life, you're inspiring others to do the same, so it's contagious to feel (and benefit from) unconditional love.


What role does your beloved pet play in this?


Animals understand that unconditional love is the ultimate goal and are willing to model it for us, so we can move towards it.


It is because of their mission that we love our animals so much: to help us align fully with unconditional love.


Let's examine how they carry out their mission in our lives and how to recognize and honor them.

The mission of animals


Have you had a dog that wouldn't stay off the sofa?


A cat you couldn't pet?


A rabbit who felt like your best friend, closer to you than anyone else?


Animals have learned that humans cannot make lasting changes in their lives without emotion.


There is no person who wakes up every morning thinking, "Hey, things are fine in my life right now, so I'll become a better person."


If we pay attention, our animals are nudging us toward what we need to see or realize by appealing to our emotions.


Here's how it works.


There might be a reason why your dog barks at everyone who walks by your house, and no matter what you tell him, he won't stop.


When you feel frustrated enough, you try a new tactic because you can't figure out what to do.


You may think the barking is the problem, but it isn't.


In a spiritual sense, animals figure out what we need to experience or learn to get closer to unconditional love and create situations through their behaviors for us to do so.


When the dog barks at everyone walking by, it might be teaching you to set boundaries with the people in your life.


A cat that refuses to be hugged may be a reflection of how you behave in relationships.


Due to the fact that you have yet to experience unconditional love, your best friend, the bunny, might be showing you how it feels.


Our pets' mission in life is to help us realize these things about ourselves so that we can grow, evolve, and become more open to unconditional love.


Yes, it's fascinating stuff, and now you're probably wondering what your pet's mission is.


What your pet's mission is with you


After understanding the answer to "why do I love my pet so much?" you may wonder how your pet is helping YOU align with that unconditional love.


You know how much you love your pet, so it must be happening somehow.


The first step is to think about your pet. What experience do you have with them that brings up huge emotions? The emotions can be positive (I've never loved anyone so much!) or negative (You keep peeing in the house all the time).


Pick the experience with the strongest emotional charge for you, not the most obvious or acceptable.


Write it down and reflect on it.


Have you found the one that really affects your mood?


This is the area where your pet has chosen to help you grow and evolve! It's not an accident; it's intentional.


Get curious about what's happening for you as you have these emotionally charged experiences with this pet over the next few days.


Do you wish you could be as clear in your needs as your horse? Do you find it frustrating that your dog puts SO many boundaries in place?


These realizations are the breadcrumbs your pet is leaving for you to figure out how they teach you unconditional love!


Why do I love my pet so much?


After reading this blog post, you know just how much you love your pet!


As they express their love through their behavior, they teach you what you need to know about yourself, so you can experience more love and joy.


Having animals in our lives is a gift, not only because they show us unconditional love, but also because they teach us how to become better people.
