Cats can teach us so much about life.
When my mum was terminally ill, Pumpkin came into our lives. She had already been named by the rescue centre, although my children called her Homey. For us, owning a cat was a life-changing decision and we’ve never looked back.
She was a rescue cat that picked us out when we went to the cattery. She instantly attached herself to my daughter. She looked neglected, had a skin condition and had been found wandering the streets.
She came into our lives and changed us forever. Just by watching her I have become even more spiritually aware. We have all learned so much from her simple needs of love, warmth, food and shelter.
Cats are known for being spiritual. I love to observe my cat to see how she interacts with her world. They have a uniquely powerful aura which takes away negativity and they carry a big energy field. Cats can help us see our world differently, their needs are simple and uncomplicated. They can teach us the values of living a simple and stress-free life, as long as we’re receptive and open to their aura and energy.
These values lend themselves to a more spiritual, harmonious and peaceful life. Spirituality isn’t a religion. It relates to or affects the human spirit or soul, as opposed to physical or material things.
Spirituality is a path towards self-actualisation, allowing those who practice to continue to focus on their internal values and so that they become better people.
Dedicated to my cat Pumpkin, also known as ‘Homey’.
