Animals as Therapy

We share our space with incredible beings! Unfettered by preconceived notions of propriety, professionalism, judgement, and the "self", animals have so much for us to learn and gain from their presence. 
Many of us clutter our minds with thoughts of what is and what was and what will be, as we move through our days completely ignoring the world around us. We think we are connected because we have put everything in its place, identified it and given it a name and the title of what we think it is. We decide what it is to be healthy, to treat the earth, to live right, or to be in the "right way". We manifest healing for everything around us, as we decide what is right for everything according to our own view and opinion. We decide there has to be a specific role and continuity according to our rules. And we miss out on living.
As we get lost in our thoughts and take offence to all that does not agree with us, we miss the gentle breeze or the thrill of play, we pay no attention to the miracle that is our body and its partner that is our mind, we do not see the beauty that we are surrounded by, the insects and the grass, the whiskers of our pet as they brush against us. 
When we emerge from our thoughts and become openly aware, we begin to live as an animal. In the moment. Our senses open up and we reconnect with our own inner being. We feel, see, smell, hear, touch, and sense the world around us in vibrant present life. 
By having animals around us and connecting to their love of life, we begin to see the benefits of a good scratch, working towards our favorite treat, and simply being close to another without wanting or needing anything but the connection. Animals teach us that we can react to the world around us and let that reaction go the second it is no longer necessary. They teach us not to dwell in the past lest we miss out on something wonderful in the now. They teach is that the future has no bearing, as we cannot gain anything from it now. They teach us not to take ourselves so seriously and to be humble as we never know what is coming next.
But most of all, they teach us that we can be forgiven when we screw up. Would that we could all learn this lesson.

The Way of the Wise Heart


Living in your Wise Heart

Awareness and Compassion are the root of living in the wise heart. When we are in this place in our being, we are able to see the magnificence and beauty in a single flower regardless of the surroundings. The very presence of being in the moment allows us to open up beyond our logical mind, into our greater being and we can experience our existence fully. Compassion allows us to let go of judgement and honor the other as ourselves. Compassion for ourselves allows us to find deep gratitude in our life and being. In life there is pain and sadness, but with a Wise Heart we can find deep joy and peace as we move into acceptance and Love.

This Fall, Aarastyn Holistic Awareness will be offering Wise Heart training through practice that allows us to... step by step... Open our Wise Hearts.
