'Man's best friend' is frequently used to describe dogs, for a good reason! They deserve their high rank as one of the most cherished animals on the planet. What is the spiritual meaning of dogs?
What is the Dog Totem, Symbolism and Spiritual Meaning?
A dogs devotion
Dogs have been linked people since the birth of civilization. Symbolically - the canine represents devotion and unwavering love. Dogs have a special place many of our hearts, because of how closely they relate to humans and their highly sociable natures.
The dog represents loyalty, honesty, camaraderie, and being a dependable guardian and faithful companion. Dogs serve as a reminder to us to live life to the fullest.
The spiritual significance of dogs varies, but dogs can teach us about love, loyalty, and forgiveness. They remind us to look at those around us and see where are loyalty lies.
The unconditional love embodied by dogs serves as a potent reminder to let go of our prejudices and judgements and treat others with kindness and compassion.
To dream of or see a dog
Dogs can also act as spiritual messengers. If you are dreaming of dogs, or constantly seeing dogs ( that aren't your own), there may be a message for you. They serve as a reminder to let go of worries and anxiety and to be in the present.
Dogs are calming. They have been used in therapy to assist patients in coping with medical conditions. They can be taught to recognize potential seizures in people, serve as guide dogs, or reduce anxiety and stress in people.
For those grieving, their capacity to comfort and be a companion is well documented.. Their unwavering support and presence can give us protection and comfort, making us feel less isolated and more connected and loved.
My own dogs, Ruby and Betty are very aware of when spiritual energy is around me. They love being in my office when I am channelling a reading or healing for others.
When I am writing a funeral ( I am also a funeral celebrant), they seem to come near me and touch my foot when I am writing a moving part of the ceremony or describing their nearest and dearest. If they come to the funeral of their deceased owner, they always know their loved one is in the casket and are often sad.
The bond between human and dog is strong, and especially over the last few years with covid lockdowns, they have been more of a focus.
I would love to hear about your experiences with dogs' at your home, or the meanings for you with dogs in dreams or visions.
Love, Jade x
