As animals have a lower intellectual capacity than humans, they function primarily through instinct and intuition. This is why they are more psychically attuned to their environments than us.
As humans, with much greater intellectual ability, most of us have become more involved with the left side or analytical hemisphere of the brain, rather than the right side, or intuitive hemisphere.
There are many reports of animals acting strangely when they are psychically disturbed by something in their environment. I had an interesting experience earlier this year when one of my cats wet himself sitting in my lap. I was really concerned that there was a medical problem with my cat. I thought that he was seriously ill.
As the traveler who has lost his way, throws his reins on his horse’s neck, and trusts to the instinct of the animal to find his road, so must we do with the divine animal who carries us through this world ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
It transpired that I was the one who was seriously ill, because I was rushed to the emergency room the next morning. I learned that my cat had reacted because he sensed that something was seriously wrong with me. Fortunately, I am feeling much better now.
B.V. Raman, a Hindu Astrologer, writes about animals’ attunement to the environment: “Two hours before the quake (Peking, July 28, 1976) tigers at the Tienstin Zoo began acting strangely. There was panic among the chickens. Pigs refused to enter their holes and horses and sheep ran about in a frenzy.”
I have learned that the behavior of my animals should be observed. Like all conscious entities, they provide useful feedback and insight, if we pay attention.
