Kin Essence – Forgiving yourself and others opens you to love and freedom
Dogs are the domesticated descendants of wolves. As pets and companions, dogs have long been associated with loyalty, empathy, fun and happiness. As a wild animal, dogs are agile hunters with the ability to run long distances without tiring, tapping into their inner determination to override their physical exhaustion and continue forwards. Wild dogs work with their pack to coordinate hunts, defend their territory and care for their young. They also make time in their lives for play.
Dogs have heightened senses, sensitive hearing, a keen eye for movement and the ability to respond quickly. They are eternally trusting, faithful and forgiving beings to those they share their life with. Their ability to embody unconditional love makes them the ideal teachers of the practice of forgiveness. No matter their circumstances, a dog has the ability to choose to live more in the present and take any opportunity to give and receive love and companionship.
Dogs are well-known for their ability to give love and affection freely, often without expectation. They are incredibly intuitive, with heightened senses that allow them to connect with our soul essence, choosing to be guided by the energy and intention behind words and actions, rather than by their literal meaning.
