This fifty-sixth episode is an excellent way to sustain your own personal heart-practices. We also hope it will be a supportive tool for you to offer to your clients, patients and colleagues.
Some of our deepest heart connections are with our pets. Whether it’s a dog, cat, bird, hamster, or another animal, the love and care we exchange with our pets is supportive and healing for us and them. This undeniable energetic heart exchange with pets is the focus of this episode.
In this episode, Dr. Allen Schoen, a pioneer of holistic veterinary medicine and recognized as one of the most influential veterinarians worldwide for introducing an integrative approach to veterinary medicine, and our host, Deborah Rozman, explore this amazing energetic heart connection between people and pets. The therapeutic benefits associated with human-pet bonding aren’t new. In fact, research has shown this powerful bond can help decrease stress, regulate breathing, lower blood pressure, and release oxytocin – a hormone associated with love.
Dr. Schoen’s research exploring the heart-to-heart connection of the human-pet bond suggests that without the healing power of the love of animals that uplifts people’s lives, the world would be an even more stressed-out place. Animal lovers will enjoy hearing about the heart-rhythm synchronization that happens when people send love to their pets. Deborah explains these findings that come out of the HeartMath Institute.
Dr. Schoen also talks about Transpecies Field Theory: An energetic field created by the thoughts and emotions of humans and animals interacting with each other. This episode will leave you with a deeper appreciation and understanding of how we benefit energetically from the love we share with pets and how this can contribute to a healthier, happier, more conscious, and harmonious world.
The episode closes with a heart meditation on how our collective heart energy can help increase understanding and cooperation between humans and our animal friends.
