Have a little extra time on your hands? The animals at the shelter near you would LOVE for you to come and visit them. If you're a dog lover, take one on a nice walk or run. Love cats....go and talk to them, tell them how handsome or beautiful they are. :) If you're afraid to 'take on' their energy, or that you'll want to adopt them all, before you go, do a quick protection exercise. Ask that your aura be surrounded by a trellis of roses, to protect you from any negative energy. Ganesh and/or Archangel Michel are great help in protection, so you can call on them to protect you from taking on any emotion.
So go spend some time with some adorable fuzzy friends! They love visitors, and the dogs always need to run, run, run!! Don't feel bad for not taking one home, if it's not right for you, they'll love the visit.
