It's not about keeping up appearances. Let go of your ego so that you can see the truth for what it is.-Shih Tzu
You are being reminded that it is always better to act than to react. Take the time to delve deeply within yourself and find the right action for you. Recognize that “what goes around comes around” and that it is not up to you to play judge and jury. However – make sure that you stand up for yourself, are clear with your boundaries and that you focus on your own priorities. Tread carefully where drama is involved and make sure that you bear no grudges. Know that when you place judgement on others you are most likely also placing that same judgement on yourself and that more often than not you are reflecting each others issues.
Alternatively Shih Tzu may be letting you know that we are all noble and spiritual creatures in this universe no matter where we come from, what we have done in the past or what we are doing now. Recognize that the greatest force within us is our heart – and when we engage our passion with love and understanding we are on the right path. Shih Tzu will help you recognize your own noble and regal attitudes and whether or not they are serving you well.
You are caring, compassionate and courageous. You love to be active in your life and enjoy the refinements and finer things that life has to offer. You enjoy working with other but only in a leadership type of role. You are protective and conscious of your public image and can often be someone else entirely when you are at home with close family. You have a lot of pride in your accomplishments and occasionally hold a grudge or two toward those who have crossed you. You do have a stubborn streak and often once you get an idea into your head you follow through with the tenacity of a pit bull. This is something that has to be carefully self monitored to balance the right mix of stubbornness with determination.
To dream of a Shih Tzu can herald the arrival of an authoritative individual in your life. This government official, policeman or a new boss will take an active role in your life for a period of time before going on to their next project. Care should be taken to listen carefully and share information in an open and honest manner in order to keep this a positive experience. Alternatively if there are several of these little dogs it foretells abundant happiness is now coming your way. If the dog is angry or barking at you it is reminding you that you should be gentle with yourself and that you are judging yourself harshly.
