During my walk I came across two women walking two dogs: a Schnauzer (male) and a Jack Russell (female). I told the women how much I love Schnauzers. One woman said the dogs were an old married couple and they were always bickering.
The Schnauzer was a lot more friendly than the Jack Russell, then again I was fussing over him. When I went to stroke the JR she seemed nervous and moved away. It was only after I made my hand into a fist and let her sniff before she was happy for me to stroke her head.
People are rather like dogs, they need to feel loved and safe before they'll open up and trust you. I know I am too. The only reason why I feel comfortable enough speaking to "strangers" is because I know the Universe is a loving and safe place. I know that everyone is made of Love. I know that Love is everywhere. Otherwise I would feel as nervous as that Jack Russell.
I have also been reprogramming my body with the same thought and reminding my body that there is no need to clam up and get all defensive. You are loved and safe. Just express who you are in your own unique way.
I am loved and safe.
We are all loved and safe.
