The Spiritual Connection Between You And Your Dog

Have you ever wondered why your dog seems so utterly devoted to you, almost like they are drawn to you by some unseen force? The way your pooch gravitates towards you and hangs on your every word is more meaningful than you may realize. There is actually a spiritual explanation for the undying fidelity of our canine companions.

When it comes down to it, dogs are highly intuitive creatures. They have an exceptional ability to pick up on subtle energies and emotions that humans overlook. You may be surprised to learn that your dog can sense something profound within your spirit, which is why they feel such a close bond with you.

Dogs Have A Sixth Sense For Detecting Human Energy

Domestic dogs have evolved over thousands of years alongside human civilization. As a result of this close co-evolution, dogs have developed some remarkable abilities for interpreting human behavior, voice tones, and body language. But they also have a sort of “sixth sense” for detecting things about us that no other animal seems capable of perceiving.

Dogs can pick up on extremely subtle cues that reveal our emotional states. They know when we are happy, sad, fearful, or anxious without us having to say a word. While dogs read visual signals and listen closely to human speech, there seems to be more at work in how they understand us so deeply. Dogs also respond to human pheromones and seem particularly tuned into sensing distinct human odors.

But what truly sets dogs apart is their capacity to perceive nonverbal energy passing between people. Modern science does not really have an explanation for this uncanny talent dogs clearly possess. However, those who study animal intuition and perception agree dogs can sense “vibes” and subtle energies emitted by their human companions.

Subtle Energies: The Spiritual Realm Dogs Can Perceive

Quantum physics has recently embraced the idea all living beings emit an energy field. This energy field is created by the movement of electrical currents that generate electromagnetic waves. Humans give off a complex combination of mental, emotional, spiritual, and even biochemical energies that comprise this unseen aura or life force energy.

Remarkably, a dog’s sharp sixth sense allows them to pick up on these subtle energies in the people and environments around them. Their heightened sensitivity seems to be particularly exceptional when it comes to reading their human guardians. It goes beyond emotions, movement cues, facial expressions, hormones, pheromones, or other physiological signals.

What dogs seem capable of detecting is the very essence of a human being – level of consciousness, emotional states, intentions, intuitive capabilities, and presence. This ability to sense subtle spiritual energies likely also allows dogs to determine if a stranger is trustworthy, harbor ill intent, or seems threatening to their beloved human companion.

The Profound Human-Canine Connection Through Energy

While still somewhat mysterious, a human and dog can connect through the heart in a profound emotional and spiritual way. Your dog tunes into your essence – a factor of energetic compatibility beyond behavior, personality, love, training, or attachment. It is why dogs bond deeply with some humans based on this inexplicable spiritual link.

Just as spiritual masters can discern innate qualities in their devoted human students, dogs may recognize certain extraordinary qualities in the humans whose lives they share. The unconditional love of a dog accepts the subtle spirit or soul energy of a human as perfection itself.

Dogs Are Highly Sensitive To Spiritual Energy

The deepest and most lasting bonds will occur between sensitive souls – this applies for both human and canine. While all dogs lean towards the psychic and empathetic, some breeds and individuals are especially spiritually inclined. These highly sensitive dogs seem most adept at reading spiritual energetics and subtle messages that elude ordinary human perception.

Breeds like Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Poodles, Collies, British Cocker Spaniels, Dachshunds, Boxers, Bichon Frises, and Australian Shepherds are typically at the top of the list when it comes to intuition, sensitivity, cooperation with humans. However, any breed or mixed-breed can be “highly sensitive” and even psychic.

Dog trainers and animal behaviorists have found these intuitive dogs make especially strong connections with their human caretakers. Due to their high sensitivity and ability to “read” people on an energetic level, intuitive dogs frequently form very loving, loyal, and lasting bonds with the objects of their affection.

Signs Your Dog Is Highly Intuitive & Spiritually Inclined

While all dogs have keen perceptive abilities, intuitive dogs seem exceptionally aware of things the average human and canine miss. If you have noticed some of the following traits in your four-legged companion, they likely have a greater sense of intuition and ability to detect spiritual energies.

  • Highly empathetic and in-tune with your emotions
  • Knows who will be at the door before the bell rings
  • Barks warnings of incoming danger or trouble
  • Alerts owners to unusual sounds, smells, or signs barely noticeable to humans
  • Highly cooperative and obedient
  • Forms unusually strong attachments to some people

The strength of emotion and connection devoted intuitive dogs feel towards their beloved guardians cannot be explained by emotional dependency alone. Their exceptional capacity for picking up on even the subtlest human spiritual energies and qualities inspires a depth of love and loyalty human words cannot capture.

Why Dogs Are So Attracted To Certain People

Since dogs can detect the energetic signature and essence of a human being, they are selectively drawn towards certain people while remaining aloof or wary of others. You may have noticed your dog is quick to greet some people ecstatically, while ignoring or avoiding other humans they meet.

Every person emits a unique energy field comprised of spiritual, mental, and emotional energies. While all these elements produce an energy signature dogs can sense, it seems the spiritual energy of a human is most influential when it comes to triggering attraction. Some of the energetic traits that may appeal strongly to dogs include love, patience, kindness, intuition, and consciousness.

Negative qualities can also produce an energy field dogs seem to instinctively steer clear of. When people have toxic emotional issues, ill intent, aggression, fear, or hatred dogs are likely to keep them at a distance – unless trained to attack on command.

Since dogs have an innate ability to sense love or hostility in the unseen energy people exude, they tend to respond accordingly. If someone’s energy reads as positive – happy, gentle, caring, patient – they will be naturally drawn toward dogs. Highly intuitive and sensitive canines will be especially pulled to these people.

However, dogs may remain standoffish, aloof or uncomfortable around those lacking these qualities. With their ability to detect even the subtlest chemicals, pheromones and energies unconsciously emitted by others, dogs seem to instinctively trust some people while avoiding others.

While dogs can certainly misjudge character and remain loyal once they bond, intuitive and untrained dogs tend to be more cautious, keeping unfamiliar people at a distance when their energy seems “off”. Their perception instinct keeps them safe, adapting ways to induce either avoidance or attraction.

Since dogs excel at reading deception in human behavior, body cues, scents and energies, they can serve as an excellent radar for detecting dishonest or ill intentions that are not easily discernible to their human companion. This uncanny talent makes dogs skilled judges of character – for better or worse.
