Gaze into your dogs eyes. As you gaze, a few changes will begin to occur.
Because as you gaze into your dogs eyes, a chemical in your body is released called Oxytocin. Oxytocin is often called "the cuddle hormone" because it's released during loving experiences like holding your baby, kissing your partner, or hugging a loved one.
So gazing into your dogs eyes translates into a loving experience! The wonder of Oxytocin though is that it creates all of these feel good things to happen in your body which opens the door for other positive feelings to emerge like hope, leaving less room for any negative feelings like despair.
Yet there is another wonderful thing about gazing into your dogs eyes. As he gazes back its done without judgement, conditions, or expectations, unlike people. His gaze only shines pure and utter love back.
So give it a try.
You've now created a vibrational space that has put you in the flourishing zone. Now when you go to do something, you'll be able to accomplish it with greater ease. You'll also feel more loving yourself toward everyone. It's the absolute best love potion around!
