It’s For the Dogs!

By Mark Andrew Beach

This law states that everything is energy and that energy is in a constant state of vibration. Furthermore, it teaches that the vibration of energy is the medium for transferring signals. Signals, or various forms of communication can include sound and light waves. Technology has harnessed these signals in the form of radio waves, television waves, microwaves, cell phone waves, satellite, and more. The energy signals we subconsciously send out from our minds vibrate and are picked up on by others and are responded to accordingly. Lastly, the law of vibration teaches that the kinds of circumstances that come our way are based on these mental energy vibrations, or “vibes” as my tragically hip son likes to say.

Scientists teach us that everything is made up of energy and that this energy is constantly vibrating at varying rates of speed. Whether a substance is a solid, a liquid, a gas or ether, all are made up of molecules that are in a continual state of movement, or vibration. The faster the molecular movement or vibration, the more fluid a substance is. Let’s consider a personal example; one perhaps you have experienced yourself:

I love to run. I enjoy nothing more than getting up early on a clear cool morning, put on some running clothes and a pair of good running shoes and taking off over the open road. Road running has its hazards however. I sometimes get frustrated at the commuting traffic competing for road space, big rig trucks that blow by and don’t even seem to know I am there. But the biggest road hazard for me is dogs.

I seem to attract dogs of all shapes and sizes when I go out for a run. At home, I plan my running routes around which dogs live where and what time they come out to do their “business” in the morning. I am generally not afraid of dogs, but I have been bitten enough to know that even the most “harmless” of dogs can do unexpected things, even if they are not considered vicious.

Anyway, as I embarked on a run one day, I was thinking about the law of vibration and how the Ho’oponopono prayer work together. For those of you who know this Hawaiian prayer, you probably understand what I am referring to here. For those of you who have not heard of this prayer and how it came to be, then I will blog about it another day. If you can’t wait until then, you can Google it and you will find all sorts of cool stuff out about it.

In short, this is the Ho’oponopono Prayer:

I love you;
I am sorry;
Please forgive me;
I Thank you.

That’s it. It’s that simple. However, when I recite it meekly and in total sincerity, I can feel a big shift in my energy and in the vibrations I feel I am transmitting out from myself, to others.

Anyway, I am out running one morning and meditating on the power of this prayer and the vibratory state it puts me in, when I am shocked out of my reverie by some very loud barking. Not just one dog was running toward me, but three good sized dogs were running across the yard as fast as they could, barking loudly all the way.

They seemed to be yelling, “How dare you interrupt our morning constitutional? Run away you man, before we jump over this fence and eat you for our breakfast!” Whew, that was when I noticed there was a fence and that I was in no real danger after all, even though the dogs were leaning up over this fence barking themselves hoarse.

As I started to relax, I started to laugh at myself for being so startled by these dogs and I started to laugh at the dogs as well because they were really just out to greet me with the morning. That was when I remembered the Ho’oponopono Prayer and how I felt as I recited it. I asked myself, “Since the prayer is transmitting energy, I wonder how it would work on these dogs?” So I repeated the prayer three times, once for each dog and I focused on each dog one at a time as I said the prayer. And you what? I’ll be hanged if each dog didn’t settle down and stop barking as I directed the prayer to it. By the time I said the prayer three times, all three dogs were just standing there dumbly panting and wagging their tails. They even stopped following me and jumping up on their fence (It was a really long fence line).

I was amazed. As I passed by these dogs each day, I would repeat the prayers as soon as they saw me and they quickly stopped barking each time, until we reached the point where they would only bark once each day as I passed by as if to just acknowledge my presence. I started using this technique on all the dogs I came across, every time I saw them, even when they did not see me. This process has been 100% successful with every dog I have encountered since.

Of course, this prayer is practical for everyone in every situation, but this dog example is significant because it involves no other verbal communication to complicate the principle or convolute the process. I could not have sat down with the dogs and worked out a diplomatic solution. I could not have reasoned with them. All I had was energy and the energy could not lie.
