I find it quite entertaining how animals seem to take on their owner’s looks and characteristics including their body language.
Ever walk down the street and see a really tall lanky person and their dog is a great dane? I always get a giggle from this. The big musclier guy seems to have a staffy type dog. Big broad chest, muscular shoulders with lean legs – I am referring to the dog!!!
It’s only natural that if you’re an active person, your pet will be active with you. If you tend to watch what you eat, then you will be more conscious of what your pet eats, hence body shape similarity. We observe our pets and how they interact with us, their body language and we might even start mimicking them. However, have you ever considered that our animals observe us? Perhaps that they mimic our actions?
An easy example is a bird, we can teach it words by repeating them over and over till they mimic us but what happens when there isn’t that vocal copycat option available? I tend to talk to myself out loud at home (I’m so use it as I talk to my animals out loud too), I’ll be walking up and down the hallway reminding myself to do this and that (my partner Jules will give me the side long glance if I do it when he’s home).Well about 1 year after I rescued my kitty kat from a shelter, I was at home in the bedroom when I heard my cat meowing up and down the hallway. I asked him what’s wrong and he said ‘nothing mummy’ I couldn’t figure out what he was doing. Then it dawned on me – that’s what I do!!! I laughed out loud and I can tell you he wasn’t impressed.
So back to why pets tend to end up looking like their owner? It has to do with energy. The more you connect and be around the same people/animals, the more we exchange energy freely. If you think about it this way, you become in sync with each other. For example, when you meet a new person and you have the same likes and same sense of humour, it’s easy to get along with them and adopt each other’s mannerisms. You might even start thinking about the same things at the same time – energy connection. It’s no different with our animals. We love them, we talk to them and include them as part of the family, of course there is going to be an energy exchange.
When I do sessions with animals especially about injuries or discussing pain level in the body, what I’ve found interesting is when the animal is able to tell me where the pain is and level, the owner will have a similar condition. I’ve had a cat tell me they’re getting headaches (yes that’s right, animals get head – aches too), when their owner responded by saying ‘that’s funny, my eyes have been hurting, I think I might need glasses’. You see our pets are natural healers, they link into us through energy and by doing so, they feel what we’re feeling. If there is stress in the household, they will try to absorb it to assist us in our day or just to understand what we’re feeling. This is why it’s so important to be aware of the energy that we bring into our homes.
Exchanging energy also takes on a physical aspect, that’s how people start to look like their pets and vice versa. You can always tell who the animal is linking in with the most at home as that’s who they will resemble the most, act like the most and sometimes sound like the most. Energy exchange!!!
I can see a definite mixture with my guys, a bit of me and then some of the answers and body language I get back are my partner’s – don’t worry I don’t hold it against them ha ha!
Observe it with your pets at home.
Who do they act like the most?
