Animal Blessing Day 2012

I want to share this beautiful practice with you and your furry friend.

Animals love to hear you say thank you. Whisper in their ears, tell them their best qualities, ask a blessing for them for all they do in your life. 

Blessing your animal doesn’t have to be connected with any religion, even though there are many organized celebrations this week. Just take a moment, open your heart, and be with your animal.  Include the animals with you in body and the ones in spirit.  Let them know how much you love them with a special blessing.

you can use the one below  

“I give deep thanks for (each animal’s name). I take this time to remember that we live and work and love among the animals. I’m inspired to be their friend, to listen to their wisdom and their humor, love them, to protect them from harm, and to thank them for each moment they share with me. Especially today, I ask blessings on (each animal’s name) who is the companion of my life. I pledge to care for them tenderly and faithfully, and to remember that we are not alone on the earth. I translate my outpouring of love and gratitude for (each animal’s name) into love and gratitude for all species.”
