We had such a powerful Creating Resilient Relationships Workshop yesterday!
Participants shared how they wanted to find ways to better connect with their dogs.
They also wanted to change perceptions and “how things were done.”
Yes! “How things are done” isn’t how those in the group wanted to express their love, compassion and kindness to their dogs. Changing the pattens of thinking because participants gained understanding that the way we feel influences the way we think and what we think makes us feel a certain way.
We all know that dog training industry is full of outdated beliefs!
Those old patterns of thought and beliefs keep people, like you, from living authentically in their own lives.
They also learned they have the power within themselves to make different choices even if it feels scary.
Even if no one else is doing it, because their eyes were opened to nothing will change if they don’t make the first step into “doing what they feel is right.”
Growth requires all of us to take action even when we feel fear.
Fear only holds you back and keeps you doing the same thing over and over again.
Taking action strengthens your self confidence and the action you take, informs you of where you take your next step.
Through repeated action, are you able to envision where you want to go on your journey.
Participants shared how this workshop helped them gain insights into how they can become more self aware of themselves and in turn, how this connection back to their own sensations in their body helped them to see the importance of meeting their dogs’ emotional needs.
The connections we made and the active participation within the group also gave space for participants to feel in community with other likeminded folks.
In the sea of making choices outside of what societal standards and norms tell us to do or instruct us to act, our lively group had a space to explore their own experiences and what worked for them in their journey in gaining a deeper knowing of themselves.
Amazing people and amazing awarenesses coming through for each of them in their own unique way.
