Today I’m featuring a guest blog on the really interesting topic of canine flow. Having worked with numerous dogs myself over a 12 year period, it is obvious that some dogs find it much easier than others to relax and let go of the feeling of responsibility. The below article is written by Becky Shuttleworth, who is a teacher of Amichien Bonding (the same methodology as me), as well as offering this complimentary technique, canine flow.
Traditionally dog behaviour and training have focused mostly on a dog’s mental and physical energies. Influencing those energies to flow and be balanced through commands, games, diet and appropriate exercise or activities.
In Canine Flow we believe there is room for a third energy to be considered as well, the dog’s emotional energy. The dog’s ability to live life by sensing what is around them and acting upon that feedback in order to always feel safe.
An emotion is felt; feelings and emotions are one and the same. With the rise in stress levels across the globe, a lack of contact with the earth, the increase in wifi, mobile phones, noise pollution, and other unnatural frequencies our dogs are finding reading or sensing their world increasingly difficult. They are becoming more and more sensitive and more reactive to their feelings. Feelings are becoming the root of all actions of behaviour as the dog tries to sense and determine the energies of those around them.
By influencing the energy of those feelings we can transform a dog’s behaviour, increase their ability to learn and release any stuck emotional energies, bringing them into balance and allowing for emotional flow once again.
You can have a calmer, happier dog by increasing the time they spend at Peace and by learning great ways to allow them to ground and express their emotions, in dog-like ways.
Dogs have the biggest heart per body mass of any animal. They really do ‘know’ how you feel and what is going on around them, reading the frequencies with their huge hearts, their inner ear magnetite and their VNO organ – constantly.
We work using energy techniques, hypnotherapy, mindfulness and I also add in Reiki to calm and relax the dog and discuss other ways they can release their emotions with their guardians.
We also look at what is going on within the dogs home or wider environment to cause the emotional distress or blockages in the first place and discuss ways to help this.
