Hello Friends! These are some uncharted times and uneasy waters. We are forced in maintaining social distancing as a way of keeping ourselves and each other safe from COVID-19.
These forced lifestyle changes can hamper our lifestyles. Many of us are accustomed to meeting up and sharing ourselves interpersonally. We meet at bars for brunch, the movies and for some of us, our work life is a great social hour too.
What about our dogs! These social venues also allow our pups to be with us. Being in Germany, that is TOTALLY the case. These forced closures of public spaces distance ourselves from one another and our dogs lose out too. The loss of a routine and our own stress translates to our own pups. They are so in tune with us and it only shows when things get upended in our own world. I know this first hand. Jack Bear is totally out of sorts realizing I’m home way more than usual! His rest and relaxation is tested 🙂
In the past year, I’ve been instilling a Reiki practice. Reiki, is essentially the flow of energy through one to another and out to the world again. We are all made of energy and for us who ever struggled with anxiety, for sure knows when energy is stored, can create unsettledness and agitation within ourselves.
Let’s keep the energy flowing. I’m still apprenticing with the practice of Reiki. I would love to share the gift of it with you and your dogs. If you would like exploring this energy work, reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will chat a bit over email and set up a time to virtually meet! Challenges lay ahead, but the community we build through human connection over the internet or in person only builds the same-LOVE.
