Dogs and Energy

Cesar and His Pack

Cesar and His Pack

I was looking for something to watch on Netflix the other day and I found a certain person I used to love watching on Animal Planet, his name is Cesar Milan. For years Cesar studied the way wolves act and how the pack handled certain situations, with all of this knowledge he developed a way to train dogs. I implemented his techniques with my older dog and it worked great, my younger dog will take more patience and more of an energy shift to get him to follow.

I was watching his new show called Cesar 911 and it brought back all the techniques that I had forgotten over the years and it really surprised me that  I understand his way of doing things so much better now that I see life as energy instead of just physical bodies.

The reason his techniques work is because Cesar deals with energy, more importantly the human energy that is being sent out and received by the dog. He has proven to me over and over that how the human feels, whether they are anxious, nervous, fearful, whatever the emotion a person has is picked up by the dog and it reacts accordingly. If you feel fearful the dog will try to take over and protect you, if you are chaotic and worry all the time the dog will not see you as a fit “leader” and will begin to run the home. Success and failure as a leader has to do with the energy flow between all involved.

wolf packThe more you watch the shows the more you will begin to understand that Cesar is not training the dogs he is training humans to be more calm and confident and this energy shift will tell the dog that you are worthy to be leader.

What needs to be understood here is that energy flow and hierarchy is how nature works. Followers and leaders are just positions, it does not mean that one group is less and the other more, unfortunately humans are the only beings that see a difference and add emotion to them, because of what we see and experience from other humans we think that the followers are being picked on or they are somehow less special than the leader. In nature it is understood that without leaders there would be no followers but without followers there would be no leader so they work together harmoniously. Animals focus on survival not on who is more liked by others or who’s fur is prettier.

In my house my husband and I co-run our “pack”, we discuss situations with each other but ultimately my husband has the final say. This doesn’t mean that I am less in any way, feeling the woman is less is just human emotion and misunderstandings of how things work. It’s hard to see positions correctly when you associate “greater” and “lesser” to them because in reality, greater and lesser are figments of our imagination, they are taught to us by society but they don’t really exist. This greater and lesser concept can seep into all areas of your life and unfortunately this is how many wars are started and how many people die.

A true leader is not picked by his looks or how much money he has, a true leader is picked by the calm confident energy they radiate. Think about the people you admire in life, what qualities do they possess that you like about them? Do they express love, compassion, or a concern for others? Are they confident in who they are and what they are doing? Are they calm or is their energy chaotic, reacting to each situation?



About Mimic Nature

Hello everyone! I’m so glad to see you! I’m Jana, I’m an eccentric wife and mother; I work 2 jobs and homeschool my kids. With all this going on in my life, I want to focus my attention on the things that make me happy, and the one thing that has made me happy ever since I was a little kid is nature. As my life progressed and changed through my teen years and my early married life, I lost my connection to it. Life took over and here I am living disconnected from nature because of work, bills, and every day events that keep me away. So the next chapter of my life will be dedicated, at least in some small part, to reconnecting to nature; I still have a mortgage, work, and a family to take care of, but now, I will be more aware of nature and my place within it. Each day, I will find some small way to not harm nature. Not long ago I was introduced to something called permaculture and I fell in love with it. Basically, it’s building a small ecosystem in your own backyard that is based off of what nature would do naturally. In turn your backyard helps you, and you help your backyard…with minimal work!! At first it may take more work, but over time, your backyard will become self-sustaining and you won’t have to work as hard…other than harvesting. I love the life lessons that I learn from nature, so what I promise to do is share a lesson that I’ve learned from nature each week, share what I’m learning about permaculture, and share my own personal progress in changing my homestead into a permaculture Garden of Eden. And since it’s hard to make any changes in life, I want to have some free giveaways once in awhile…all nature themed of course, to help all of us remember our ‘green’ family. Read a few articles, see if you like what is there, if you do, go ahead and subscribe. If you don’t like what you see, that’s ok, I’m honored that you took the time to get to know me a little and see my vision for my blog and my life.

  1. Jana,
    Excellent thought provoking post.
    God has given all creatures guidance in the useful expenditure of their energy. The instincts that guide animals are, in humans, the common sense use of reason and will. Man is given more and therefore is expected to be responsible; not only for himself but also for the other species that share the world God has made for all.
    Dogs do, however, have an advantage. They are not challenged with the knowlege of their mortality.
