Cats are not just cats and that’s something a lot of people I believe have come to understand. Sure, dogs are great but cats offer us something special that we should work to understand more properly.
You see, cats are aware of our auras and are able to sense our energies as they shift. If we’re feeling down and out, our cats will know. These furry felines are able to sense negative energies on a scale that most people do not quite fathom. On an energetic level our cats operate much higher in frequency than we do and as a result, work to help us along our paths in this world and protect us.
Cats have been known to sense and correct negative energy wherever they find it. This is why most people feel a sense of peace and inner tranquil when a cat is happy around them. Ask any cat owner and they will confirm this. This inner happiness is not the same as seeing a dog happily welcoming back from work; it is something deeper.
This is because cats sense negative energy and have the ability to correct it. In her book, ‘Buckley’s Story – Lessons from a Feline Master Teacher’, Ingrid King, a Veterinary Hospital Manager turned author talks at length about the role of cats in healing. She is at present, the top contributing writer to Dr. Marty’s Becker’s (a leading writer on Pet Behavior) Pet Connection Magazine and Blog.
She tells vivid stories about the times when her cat intuitively came in during Reiki sessions to complement the energies required for the healing of pets and humans.
Initially, Ingrid thought it was a coincidence, but then she realized that whenever she felt her energies were not enough for the healing her cat would come in and curl around the ‘client’ with just the right amount of energy.
In humans, the cat senses when the aura and energies are negative, and by entering into it can correct it thereby provide healing therapy before any illness comes through. Most people agree that after they adopted a cat or cats, the energy in their house felt more peaceful, and they balanced.
For years and years, cats have been thought to have powers that we as humans are unable to come to terms with. Even ancient people revered these creatures and treated them as gods or goddesses in some cases. As a matter of fact, Ancient Egyptians held cats to such high esteem that if you injured one you would be severely punished.
Have you ever noticed your cat picking up on something you were unable to see? This seems to happen a lot more often than most would like to admit and there has to be a reason behind it. I recently even came across a blog post noting that cats could be considered as natural Reiki healers and this got me thinking more deeply about the things noted above.
So I starting looking into it more after I earned my Master Level Reiki Certificate and was told that Cats actually are Natural Reiki Healers by my Instructor. He told me the Secret is in the Purrrrr.
The Secret Is in the Purr ~ A cat’s purr vibrations range between 20 and 140 hertz (Hz). It seems that those old-time vets were on to something because frequencies between 25 and 50 Hz are the best for promoting bone strength (second-best frequencies range from 100 to 200 Hz). There is an old vet saying if you put a Purring cat in a room with a box of broken bones, the bones would start to heal themselves!! The purr can also help to decrease symptoms of dyspnea (shortness of breath because of bronchitis, emphysema, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD), lower blood pressure, help cure infection and swelling and heal muscles, tendons, and ligament injuries. Not to mention, simply stroking a cat with a good purr on soothes the soul — and the nerves.
When I started practicing Reiki Session in my Studio in my home. I never let my pets in that part of the house. But while practicing my cat Smokey would constantly be Meowing at the glass door to the other room to come it. I had a client finally tell me, “It’s ok, I love cats, please let her come in “. So in came Miss Smokey and within 10 minutes she was on the massage table, and she actually went directly to the area I was about to work on. I kept trying to shoooe her off the table but my client actually said it was very soothing. That is when I started thinking about all the above and actually saw with my own eyes that Cats are Natural Healers!
This person saw first hand some abilities our feline friends can offer and that is truly magnificent in every sense of the word. Have you ever been feeling sad and unable to get your cat away from you? Chances are this is because your cat is on a spiritual level working to heal you within. While there will be people who consider the whole concept to be ‘rubbish’ but I don’t think it’s anything of the sort. For more on this topic check out the video below.
