Relationship Reflection Guide
This is the Animal Soul Connection spin on a vision board! You'll create an Animal Connection Board so that you can understand your relationship with your animal on a deeper level. By getting your thoughts and feelings out of your head and onto paper, you will gain clarity and a new way of looking at your relationship with your beloved animal.
You can use a poster board or a piece of paper, or get as creative as you’d like!
Begin by drawing a line down the center of your board.
On the left side is how you feel about your animal and on the right side what you think your animal feels about you.
List positive aspects and less than positive aspects of your relationship from your perspective and the perspective of your animal and how they feel.
For example: (be sure to choose your own too)
what you love
favorite things about each other
what you like to do together
anything you feel is important
Please do this with each animal in your family if you have more than one.
Be as creative as you'd like using pictures, or draw pictures, anything that helps you explore your relationship. If you want to keep it as simple as possible, you can simply write the words on each side.
By recognizing our relationship with our animal as a deep connection, more than simply a surface 'pet and caretaker' role, we can honor our bond in a new way. Seeing what we love about our animal helps us appreciate them even more. Admitting we may have some frustrations with the relationship helps us learn how we might be able to improve the bond.
I’d love to hear how you approached this exercise. What did you find out about each other? Did you come up with some surprises?
Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I’ll follow up with you to see if you have any thoughts or questions too.
Thank you for taking the time to explore your relationship with your animal family!
