How the Fibonacci Sequence relates to dog training
November 23rd is dedicated Fibonacci dayCategory: Dog Behaviour | 12 Dec 2019
Not because the mathematician who published the sequence in 1202 died, was born
or even published the data then - but, simply, because is USA format the date 11/23 is the beginning of this unique, arguably most interesting, number sequence humanity has even discovered.
The sequence goes 1,1,2,3,5,8, 13, 21, 34 and onwards – each
time the preceding two numbers are added together to create the next. Making it
a sequence of direct expansion, in fact it has been described as the Self 1
becoming aware of its-Self, another 1 and thus creating the 2 the duality and
the subsequent expansion and growth of conscious awareness.
It is the ratios of the Fibonacci sequence we also call the Golden mean or the
This is expressed as the ever-expanding spiral, the maths of
the growth of life.
Seen most obviously in snail shells, beach shells, pine cones, pineapples and
the centre of sunflowers. How-ever the ratio or golden mean is found in every
part of life itself.
Each of our body parts can be attributed to the dimensions of the sequence, the
rations of our individual arms to hands, our spine and even our DNA helix.
Plants unfurling, even plant growth from a seed has been shown to move in the Fibonacci
spiral*. Weather of course, and patterning through nature. Even our heart beat measurements,
known as Coherence, have been shown to measure at the golden ratio when we feel
the emotion of Love**. Not grief, not gratitude -although that comes close, but
Could Love truly be that which ‘makes the world go round’?
The undercurrent expressed in form all around us, and within us.
We use the Fibonacci within Canine Flow. Initially I discovered that to include
the spiral in our energy techniques appeared to create deeper, quicker change
for the dogs and owners.
Subsequently I learned of the value and importance of all Geometry in terms of
our spiritual growth, and how light, guided by sound vibrations becomes the lifeforms
and even life situations, we see in our reality.
To make changes in our dogs behaviours, we are challenged to understand them
from the soul, spirit and life force flow point of view. This Life-Force-Flow
is essentially our emotions, our oppawtunity to be in coherent Love as often as
possible. Transforming behaviours and creating our own reality using, or from,
that measurable divine force.
We say we are connected to our dogs, the sequence and ratio teachings provide further
meaning behind that feeling. We find continually that to include this life
force flow aspect of our dogs into our way of seeing and influencing their behaviour
makes more lasting changes. It also explains so much more of their choices of behaviours, way beyond the mind.
The ancients knew of the geometry linked in with the golden ration and the Fibonacci
sequence, so far all of the ancient megalithic structures found have
mathematical measurements that coincide with the geometry, this surely cannot
be pure coincidence.
Either communication between continents was easier than we presume of those
eras, or they all use the same measurements based on what they discovered by
studying the cosmos, the stars and astrology. Which does, by the way, also
adhere to and expand to this same identical ratios and numerical sequence.
Interestingly I discovered that whilst the number sequence was published in
1202 it has actually been mentioned as far back as 450BC, in ancient Sanskrit
teachings. They too knew of its importance in terms of the life force flow of
our nature, that of our Kundalini rising. An energy they describe as our divine
Finally I felt compelled to look up what the name Fibonacci meant as a name. I was
amazed to discover that it is in fact ‘son of’ Bonacci, which in Latin means
Bonus, or ‘Good’. I couldn’t help making the leap in my mind to Son of God.
Fascinating that the more known discoverer and publisher of such information in
the modern-day world, should have this name.
Perhaps the only genuine coincidence for the Fibonacci? Or not...
