I am amazed how often when working with animals, the issue comes up, they do not like their name..
They have no concept of the alphabet. For them it is the energy in the name. How we string letters together to form a name creates an energy that the name vibrates to. When a name is not working for an animal it means the name is not a vibrational match for that animal.
Think about your own name and how it feels to you. I know people who have changed their name as the name they were given did not feel right to them. It is really important how our name feels to us.
It is the same for animals. If the name is not a vibrational match then there is discord. Animals feel the discord just the way we do, only on their level. It is not a thought process for them.
When I am asked to help name or rename an animal I get quiet and I ask for four, what I call, embodiment words.that are a reflection of who the animal is. Example: Dog female Beauty, Feminine, Wise, Loyal. This dogs name wants to reflect these qualities. A name like Fluffy is not a reflection here. A name like Bella is.
With the animals pushing me today I said ok I will write about names and explain how very important it is to them. Often I have people tell me their animal came to them already named and they are having a hard time with the name. I tell them they are feeling it from their animal and it is ok to create a new name that has a better feel.
I see it as a wonderful opportunity to think outside the box of what I know. Sit with your animal and see what comes up. Sometimes it takes awhile. That is ok. It is also a chance to share something that is important
Don’t listen to what any one else says. Trust yourself and your animal. Make it fun.
