Your Ancient Symbol Card for February 21 is The Cat

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Cat

The Cat represents the need for stealth and the freedom to act without restrictions. Acting stealthily in no way implies the need for underhanded behavior. Instead the suggestion here is to move quietly towards your goals and reach out for them when they are within range. It also denotes a need to free yourself from restrictions imposed by others.

As a daily card, The Cat suggests that the opportunity to attain your goals is very strong at the moment. However, you need to keep your intentions to yourself and shed whatever limitations have been put on you by others.

January 28 – Daily Feast

Speak to me of serenity, of treasures yet to be found, of peace that flows like a river. Tell me of tranquil places that no hand has marred, no storm has scarred. Give me visions of standing in sunlight or the feeling of spring mist against my cheek as I live and move and breathe. Show me paths that wind through the wild lilies and beds of buttercups. Sing me songs like the mingled voices of wrens and meadowlarks, the lowing of gentle cows, the soft mother-call of a mare to her colt. Lead me past a glass-smooth pond where frogs croak of coming-out parties, their graduation from frisky tadpoles to squat green frogs. Find me a place in the sunlight to sit and think and listen to the sweet inner voice that says so quietly, “Peace, be still.”

Daily Feng Shui News for Jan. 22 – ‘Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day’

It’s ‘Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day’ and if one of those kitty questions asks why their ears itch so much, then your pet might have ear mites. Take a flashlight and look inside the cat’s ears. If you see something that resembles coffee grounds, then your pet has ear mites. Puncture two vitamin E capsules and squeeze out the oil from one each into the cat’s ears. Gently rub the oil in and carefully clean out both the oil and the mites with a cotton swab. Repeat this process for three days in a row and the mites should disappear. The oil not only suffocates the mites, but will help Kitty heal from all that itching. Next question.

January 21 – Daily Feast

In the darkest day in winter color is everywhere. They are colors we do not expect to see, so we do not see them. They float on early morning clouds that lie aloft in the southern sky and hover in the crevices of hills at midday. In the evening, the western horizon is purple – all shades of purple, which the Cherokee calls gi ge s di. The last rays of sunlight color the scuddling clouds with purple, rose, and lilac. The Indian loves color and is tuned in to its joy. If we are caught in moods that are drab, our eyes have little chance of seeing color. A drab view can be changed. Even now a, as go in ge (jay) and a brilliant, gi ga ge (cardinal) can stir us with their blues and reds if we have the heart to see them.

Your Animal Spirit for August 19th is the Raccoon

Your Animal Spirit for Today
    August 19, 2013 

Raccoon

This masked bandit can make you laugh with his antics, or make you angry when you realize he’s made off with your food! Raccoon is incredibly curious—to the point that he’ll walk into a potentially dangerous situation just to see what’s up. Like Raccoon, are there situations you’re barging into before you have all the information? Might want to re-think this one.

Do Dogs See The Supernatural?

Do Dogs See The Supernatural?

Whether folklore or fact, many of us would like to believe that our dogs can  detect unexplained or invisible presences, guided by a canine sixth sense. It’s  exciting, and comforting, to think a favorite dog is sensitive to a departed  relative or friend.

But hard evidence of dogs’ extrasensory perception is elusive and anecdotal.  The 2009 book “Tails of the Afterlife,” by Peggy Schmidt, chronicles multiple  instances of unexplainable actions by dogs who apparently interact with  something, or someone, unseen. For instance, she writes about a woman named Del  Johnsen who left seven dogs and six cats when she passed away. Numerous  witnesses believe she still visits her pets daily, and report seeing the animals  suddenly gather in one spot, cats arching their backs and purring, dogs flopping  over for a belly rub, wriggling in enjoyment, all of them sitting at attention  and staring into the air before resuming their own activities. And Schmidt says  her own Jack Russell terrier Pixie has repeatedly reacted to ghosts present in  local buildings rumored to be haunted.

But your pet’s so-called sixth sense may simply be the result of his keen  hearing, exceptional nose, and a dog’s eye view on the world that allows him to  sense small movements that escape our attention. A dog’s senses are keener, and  different, than ours: His eyes detect more delicate movements; his sense of  smell is 1,000 to 10,000 times more sensitive than a human’s. He can hear much  higher frequencies, and at four times the distance of a human with normal  hearing.

Wild and domestic animals, including dogs, seemed to sense the impending  Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, displaying their distress with behavior changes  and vocal warnings, and either ran for cover or refused to go outside. Some  experts believe they could sense vibrational changes on land from impending the  earthquakes before humans could.

Dogs’ heightened sense of smell is credited with their ability to detect some  cancers in humans. Service dogs who aid seizure-prone people are alert to subtle shifts in body smells and dilated pupils, signs that enable the dogs  to warn their owners of a looming attack.

As for a sixth sense connecting to the supernatural or  paranormal, pet psychologist Marti Miller believes that both dogs and their  owners possess one. “But humans judge or deny what they are feeling,” says  Miller, who is based in Austin, Texas. “Dogs don’t judge what is going on in the  environment. While our own minds start to analyze what is happening, dogs don’t  do that. They feel the barometric pressure change, and may react by shaking,  panting, salivating and feeling anxious, or they may not react at all.”

Miller says dogs’ varying reactions to a shift in the atmosphere or  unrecognized sound or movement can stem from early traumas, such as being caught  in a rainstorm, hurricane or tornado, or from “a cellular memory that they have  brought with them to this lifetime.” For dogs, “sensing the supernatural is  natural because they don’t judge it. People could see auras or spirits, but they  either don’t believe they exist, or think that if they do exist, we could not  see them.” Animal Planet’s own series “The Haunted” includes episodes with  instances of family dogs reacting to the apparent presence of spirits, reactions  that have no easy explanation for the out-of-the-ordinary behavior.

Scientific studies on dogs’ senses offer debatable evidence of dogs’ psychic  and sensory perceptions. In his 1999 book, “Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are  Coming Home and Other Unexplained Powers of Animals: An Investigation,”  biologist and author Rupert Sheldrake presents a five-year exploration into  canine behaviors. His work is based on the experiences of thousands of dogs and  owners whose arrival home at unexpected times did not surprise their pets, who  reacted with anticipation. Sheldrake concludes that “there is a strong  connection between humans and animals that lies beyond present-day scientific  understanding.”

When watching your own dog during activities in your household, or when you  take him visiting, you may see him fasten his attention on something you can’t  see or hear. You may shrug it off as anxiety or reaction to an unfamiliar smell.  Or just maybe, you suspect your own pooch is communing with the unseen.

Because dogs can’t talk to offer their own explanations, there’s no way to  know what exactly is going on. “The simple answer is, we don’t know that dogs  see ghosts or spirits,” Miller said. But she adds, “If you observe a dog  standing in the corner, barking at nothing visible, then there’s a pretty good  chance that he’s barking at an entity, spirit, or energy that doesn’t belong  there.”

A distant noise, an unseen spirit or fresh cut of meat? You decide.

I had some people stop and of course, they seen me in here. So they knocked on the door and I had to see what they wanted. A neighbor of theirs told them that I had some kittens in. And it was time for us to start looking for them a home. The kitten was for their daughter, she looked to be about twelve. She was excited to be here so I took them back to look at the kittens. They picked out the one they wanted. I told them I would hold her for them. I also asked them if they minded coming back tomorrow(to fill out paperwork, about 3 months from now we will be checking on the kitten). I even went so far as telling the little girl I would give her a tour of all the wildlife we had. Gee! What’s Wrong With Me? I’m getting soft!

Now to get back to work before someone else shows up, lol! Sorry About That!

Good Friday Blessings To All!

 

Good Friday Blessings to everyone! I have been here for a week. It feels like a lifetime, lol! A very memorable lifetime. I enjoyed the experiences and I love spending time with my dear friend, Lady A.  This past week will be one that lives in my memory for a very long time, very long. All the animals I have seen. Some of the things I have seen Lady A do with them. I was holding my breathing knowing they were going to rip her to shreds at any minute. I have to admit Lady A is full of surprises. She mentioned she had a new cat Razzy. I told her to bring Razzy by I would love to see her. I just adore little kittens and cats.

This morning at 8:00 the door opened, it was Lady A. I asked her where Razzy was, she had promised to bring her. She told me to wait a minute, she had to get her off the back of the four-wheeler. Since I thought Razzy was a little cat, I figured she had to get her out of a carrier. About three minutes later, here comes Lady A and oh shit, that isn’t a housecat. That’s a damn bobcat. I asked her if she was totally crazy. Annie told me to get down off the desk and calm down. That Razzy was tame. Lady had adopted Razzy took her to the vet, had her fixed, declawed, the works. She had since been working on Razzy’s people skills. Annie told me to stay perfectly still or else the bobcat would pounce. Lady A told Annie to quit scaring me and then told me to get down off the desk. I sit down in the chair and Lady brought Razzy over to me. I was scared at first but then I touched her coat with my fingertip. How soft? What a pretty coat. She laid her head on my knee. Then Lady A being the witch she is, picked up Razzy and put her in my lap.  I stayed calm and petted the pretty kitty. Then kitty wanted down. She went back over to Lady A. Lady took the harness off and told Razzy to get in her spot. Her spot is on top of the filing cabinets, by the way.

Lady A took a shot of Razzy for me to put on the site. You can see how I am tortured around here, lmao, now!

Razzy 8 months old

 

We all went out back and turned Razzy loose (the back is fenced in). She ran and played. When she got tired. We snapped this pic real quick. Isn’t she beautiful.

Looking back on my past week here, there have been times when I wondered what the hell am I doing here? Then there were others that I wouldn’t trade the world for them. All in all, I think I have found home. Good friends, love, fellowship, nature, gorgeous scenery and the animals. Oh, the gorgeous animals. I am learning to love even baby skunks, lol!

I hate to tell you but you are stuck with me, lol!

 

HELLO FAMILY!
