You’re searching for someone or something to tell you how to help your dog feel less anxious and overwhelmed by the world around him
You scour books and FB groups to find out how you can help your dog connect and bond with you.
All the other dogs you’ve lived with before NEVER had these issues.
They were easy and running into road blocks with your other dogs’ behavior was never a thing.
Now, your new dog is unlike any other dog you’ve lived with or experienced before in your life.
You don’t know what to do and you too are feeling overwhelmed and anxious about this new experience.
You ask yourself, what do I do?
Often we look outside of ourselves for the answers.
In a Discovery Call, a conversation about an analogy of diamond came up. From her perspective, she shared with me how she sees the creation of solutions, creating curriculum, and the product of the work she does with her clients is like “spitting out a diamond”.
I reflected back to her with a different perspective. I asked her, “instead of seeing what you produce and the outcome of your actions as the diamond, what if you see yourself and those around you as the diamond?”
Let that sink in!
When you feel into and start taking action from a place that you and your dog are the diamond, you shift.
Each diamond is unique just as each of you and your dogs all have unique personalities, interests and dislikes.
Recognizing and honoring the uniqueness within yourself and your dog, you allow yourself to shift in perspective and open yourself to have more compassion for yourself and feel more empathetic to your dog.
These shifts allow you to see yourself and your dog in a new way.
When you ask yourself, what is truly showing up in this moment of chaos and overwhelm, you peel back the layers and recognize the sparkle within the connection you have within yourself and your dog.
Finding the answers of how you’re feeling aren’t in the books and groups you’re in.
Looking within yourself and leaning into what’s showing up for yourself and asking yourself where you want to go and what you want your relationship to feel like with your dog, you release the expectations of what I “should” be doing and you choose to surrender into what truly matters.
What matters is believing you and your dog are the diamond.
I invite you to ask yourself, how can I amplify our sparkle?
