"The windows of the soul lay open without
Within and without is narrow and wide.
From outside and inside the colours emerge
The shutters remain half open and close to let in light"
The Feliscatus which is commonly known as cat is a domesticated animal that have not evolved much over the years. Having said that, the cats are one of the oldest known animals on earth. Does that mean their soul has also remained the same? And they have been consciously privy to the goings on, evolution and the mutations on earth? The answers to the question is an obvious “yes”. Cats in fact have had a revered and pious status in the old civilisations, namely the Egyptian. The earliest feline ancestors go back to as early as 4400 BC. The Egyptian mythology is full of colourful stories about cats, that the relationship and impact they shared in the contemporary society and household. The Egyptians used to consider cats a form of goddess and they were as a result often dressed in gold ornaments and offered food in gold plates. In the modern world, many psychics have a pet cat, and they use the energy from their pets in various readings, and to maintain their own intrinsic energy levels.
As you know with old age comes, wisdom and Wisdom in turn gives birth to empathy. Thus, I would not be wrong to say cats are great empaths!
Sure, if you are a cat person you already know that they can be pretty amazing animals but they are so much more than that. They are more in tune with the spiritual world than we are and because of that are far more empathetic to our needs and the needs of the spirits around us.
“Your soul is a reflection of my own,
Although mine is age-old”
Cats can pick up the energy of their surroundings. In fact keeping a cat is very auspicious in a household. In ancient Egypt every household had a cat. In the Indian mythology the cat is a cohort of the Goddess Shashti. Even today in various African cultures the cats are a part of tribal ceremonies and rituals. The feline wisdom is looked upon as a blessing. Evil spirits are said to stay away from the cats. Especially legends have it in household where there are small children and babies, cats should always be kept. Like in the old world, there was an old patriarch or matriarch who was the head of the family, and in times of troubles they guided and gave solutions. Similarly, the energy given off by cats can ward off the evil eye, and dissolve the existing problems.
“Your hand in mine is an assurance that I have time,
To take pleasures and leisure,
Say Hi and Bye”
