Blessing of the Day: My Cat
I’ve always loved animals; as a kid growing up my brother and I had lots of cats that we adored. But it wasn’t until I adopted my current cat Jammie **correction – SHE adopted ME** that I realized just how special a furry companion can be. From the first day I took her home, she has proven to be a very special Being indeed. That very first day, I had the cat carrier on my lap in the car and I opened the top to look at her and – this is going to sound VERY weird and cheesy for non animal people – but we locked eyes and something just clicked. It was like we were instantly bonded in that moment and forever. I have never been able to actually explain in words because it’s a feeling beyond words, unexplainable, you just have to feel it for yourself.
Through all the years we’ve been together she has been my constant companion through four moves, one ex-boyfriend and his Precious furry canine companion (whom he also had a special bond with, she’s now passed on) and many new adventures. Jammie is the most self-aware cat I’ve ever encountered, more than the other two cats who have also agreed to live their lives with me right now. I feel like she’s my counterpart because she walks alone too, apart from the other cats, and her consciousness is far ahead of theirs too. She has helped me grow and expand my capacity to generate Love. And my Love for her is helping her grow too. Like St. Francis of Assisi.
As other pet parents will attest, sometimes you forget they’re animals because they act so much like humans – they eat human food (Jammie eats corn on the cob, avocado, coconut oil and other human foods) they talk back – sometimes you even have conversations (oh is that just our crazy?), they listen (when they want), they comfort you, but unlike humans, they Love you no matter what. They are Beings of pure Love. The unconditional Love and Adoration you receive from an animal is a treasure beyond words. Sometimes I Love Jammie so much my heart is bursting wide open. Ask me a year ago if I would be devastated if she passed on and left me and I would say YES! my life would be so affected. But now as I progress on my Ascension path and learn the art of detachment, I turn my attention upwards and believe that as I’ve filled my heart with Love and Adoration for My I AM Presence and the Beings from Above that I will be ok when she moves up in her evolution. She said she’ll give me two more years and I’ll take it! But as I live in the Present here and now, when she’s out of sight she’ll be out of mind and that’s how it should be. I love her with all my heart now and when she’s gone I won’t look back.
