Psychic Cat Furby - photo by Joyce Sammons
Settle in friends. This is going to be an interesting article. You're all going to LOVE this one. Especially when I stop researching and start in with personal opinion.
Several months ago I did an article about cats predicting different things. Here's the link: Can cats predict disaster disease or death
This story will be similar, yet totally different in many ways. There is a lot of scientific evidence on how pets pick up on subtle atmospheric changes to predict the weather. But how about predicting the unusual. Or how we communicate telepathically with our furry friends.
I'm addressing both dog and cat lovers in this article because both seem equally capable. Psychic pets are more common than many will admit to.
During the London Blitz is an excellent example. Cats especially could sense the bombing well in advance and go underground. How did they know? This was before anything physical such as noise or panic. They KNEW!
Pets know not only when their person will arrive home, but also if they are in distress. To prove to yourself the arriving home test, simply use a stopwatch or a clock. Most cats will anticipate their humans arrival and make it easy to test this theory. I had a dog several years ago who would lay by the door exactly 20 minutes before I arrived home. And my arrival time was different day to day. Yet he KNEW. One of my cats knows when I wake up. He sleeps in another room, but a minute after I come awake, he's on my pillow.
Caroline Connor (website: Inner Self), Radionic consultant, has a unique perspective on cats. Radionics is a highly controversial field that claims to detect and modulate life force using electronic devices. She believes if a stray comes to you then you are in need of a cat. Accept it and take it in. Her belief is that cats remove negative energy from our bodies as we sleep. The negative energy leaves the body of the cat when they sleep. That is the reason so much time is spent catnapping. Hmm, interesting concept. A little off the topic at hand, but I like to present different theories. Even when I don't agree with them.
Here's one scientific study: Pet Psychic. Some claim the communication is done thru electromagnetic energy. Riki and therapeutic healing work in much the same way. Which brings me to the works of Edgar Cayce (1877-1945). Over the years I've read a lot of his work on the paranormal and reincarnation. Not my cup of tea. He was still a fascinating man for his time. I agree with some of the case studies he did involving the human body. The Association for Research and Enlightenment was founded by him in 1931 and is famous for studies on everything from dream research to reincarnation. One of his studies found that those with psychic powers could also use same powers to talk to animals. I totally agree with his findings.
Many sources believe all of the above can be taught in the same method as any other life skill. There are courses out there that teach riki, therapeutic healing, psychic awareness, etc. You all get my meaning. I would like feedback on whether these can be learned or if it's an inborn ability. Or just someone out to make money or defraud.
One theory that I would advise further study in is ley lines. Churches, standing stones, cemeteries, leaders homes and many others have been built along ley lines. Many believe ley lines control and enhance psychic energy. I remember studying these back in the late 1970's. I would more readily believe this if you remove all of the mysticism and stick to the basic theory of electromagnetic energy. I still love researching the standing stones in many countries.
Yet science still insists there is little to prove the existence of a psychic connection between animals and humans. I believe one reason is that scientists basically try to have proof for everything. In other words, if science can't back it up then it doesn't exist.
In other words-NO PSYCHIC PETS!
Guess what everyone? I'm tired of the research. Let science believe what they want and let everyone else take the information I've written so far and continue down their own path as to enlightenment in how and if pets and people have a psychic connection.
I'm going to describe what I know from real life experience.
This may be my last story if the men in white coats come after me! I believe my theories are the most accepted and the most common. I don't believe many will disagree with me.
I have a form of psychic energy called empathy. It's a blessing, a curse and many other descriptions in between. It is a God given gift that I've had since I was 10. I became aware of it one night when I was 10 and my dad took my dog at 8 p.m. to be euthanized.
Rusty was a full blooded Collie and was suffering from cancer to the extent I begged daddy to please shoot my dog. I felt what my dog felt. Daddy called the vet and the vet agreed to meet him at the office in 15 minutes. I still remember that night with unusual clarity. At 10:15 p.m., I heard Rusty bark. I ran to the door looking for Rusty to come running up to me. In my 10 year old mind I had hopes the vet had "cured" him.
No one was there.
Daddy arrived home in tears 15 minutes later. Rusty was in the back of his car dead. Mama knew I'd heard the dog bark because I'd been so excited afterward. I asked daddy what time Rusty died. Daddy told me the vet ran late and Rusty was euthanized at 10:15 p.m.
I believe many are born with the gift I have. Children are especially able to communicate with animals. Until parents fear this is a "dark" gift instead of a gift from God and they are forced to suppress it. Face it. If you confess this talent to the wrong people, you'll either end up in an institution or earn the title "crazy cat lady/man."
My ability is far reaching. I don't have to be close to an animal or person to sense distress. I can feel it 100 miles away. I can also run my hands over a body and know if there is pain or cancer. It's the toughest part of my life I've had to deal with. I've done this with people and with animals. So why can't animals have this same ability? Don't they sense when we need them and come to us? Haven't a few even made the news for detecting different diseases?
I've been clueless about many of my four legged friends. Most commonly with the ferals who didn't want anyone to get close-physically or mentally. Yet I've had cats who made their thoughts very clear simply by starring at me. I currently have a dog who communicates by telepathy. His nickname is Dummydog, but he's just the opposite. I can give him a certain look and he's by my side as protection. He's big and being by my side is all that's needed to protect me. Not that I need protecting. Maybe when the men in white coats come to take me to my new "home."
Go to your search engine and type in PSYCHIC PETS. There are dozens of sites and stories. We can't all be wrong. I read story after story researching this project. The proof is there-from subtle hints to lifesaving and everything in between. WE CAN"T ALL BE WRONG! Most of us have psychic pets. It's just not a safe topic to discuss around non-believers.
My grandmother had a lot of Cherokee and Creek Indian in her heritage. She was a healer who always spoke of Jesus as a friend. You'd think she lived in a room down the hall. Church leaders would visit her to listen to her praise God. She could talk fire out of a burn. I witnessed that one at 5 years old. I was naïve in thinking all grandmother's had that gift. I believe I got a lot of my ability from her. I can't heal burns. I can sense illness, hate, love, fear, anger and many more. Sometimes it overloads my brain. If anyone else on grandma's line in my family has any of these "gifts", they're not admitting to it. I also have a healthy dose from my dad's line.
Perhaps I'm part cat. I've been accused of moving like a cat. Whether that has anything to do with psychic pets is unknown.
Caroline Connor and her Radionics research remind me a lot of this gift. I use it to help me accept some changes and reject others. That even sounds like the philosophy of a cat. Doesn't everyone agree with me on that? There is a lot of acceptance responsibility involved in all of this.
Mostly in being unscientific and believing in things I can't prove. It gets easier as I get older. It would be nice to call up all of these traits on command and make a living at it. Life doesn't work that way.
So I write about cats. Feral cats, psychic cats, needy cats, helpless cats. Then everyone shares similar experiences we all believe in. Lets all get together and tell our own psychic pet stories. I know you have them.
I'm thankful for my pets and I'm thankful for my stories.
I'm thankful I have people waiting to read them.
