CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “7 Mysterious Ways Our Souls Communicate With Us”

Our souls are our gratitude. Our souls know what occurs in our hearts and understand what we truly seek in our lives. We can hide a lot of things from others, or even from ourselves, but we can’t hide such things from our souls.

Our souls try to establish communication with us and guide us. But, our souls speak through different means, and we have to be aware of those ways, in order to listen to our souls.

Here are the seven mysterious ways in which our souls communicate with us:

Synchronized events

In fact, there will be times when we are going to come across a few incidents which can appear random; but, when we connect the dots, we are going to see that these incidents are pointing to something different. These random events are going to add to only one event which we can realize later. Our souls will show us the bigger picture.

Repetition of letters or numbers

Numbers and letters are tools which we can use to communicate to communicate with each other. Our words are going to reveal everything we really want to say to other people. Our souls will use numbers, letters, and even words to communicate with us. Our souls often do this repeatedly. The repetition of these elements in our lives could indicate some kind of communication so that we have to open our eyes if we notice them constantly.

Gut feeling

Many people act on the basis of their instincts. Sometimes, we think about a specific thing, and we feel that our gut says something else. Our souls are connected with our true nature. Our souls understand our necessities, and know what bothers us or please us. Therefore, our souls speak out when we doubt something. We may think that it is a gut feeling, instinct, or vibe, but often, it will be our souls that are trying to communicate with us.

Visions

There will be times when our dreams are going to be the thing that is going to reveal what our souls want to say. Instead, our visions will be. This may appear in the form of a thought, premonition, or just a glimpse which we can easily ignore. We have to remember that visions and dreams are different things, as visions may happen during meditation, thinking, or when we are agitated. We need to be careful and pay attention to our visions.

The feeling of something odd or strange being present

Oftentimes, we are going to come face to face with the feeling of something wrong or odd being present, or we will feel like something is missing in our lives. We can’t even figure out such things instantly. But, this feeling was created by our souls in order to direct us towards something that we need in our lives. Our souls are going to speak out when they feel that they have to. We have to pay more attention so that we will always find the needed direction in our lives.

Anxiousness

Anxiousness is not always going to be fully psychological. It is not always going to appear as a result of stress and tension. There will be times when our anxiety is going to appear because of our souls warning us against something which was planning to do. They are going to warn us through negative feelings present inside us, and we are going to cancel our plans, in order to act better.

Animals

Our souls may speak to us through birds or some other animals, even though it is a true mystery of how they do that. For example, it may happen that we continuously see crows, which is going to make us feel strange about a particular situation. This may actually mean that our souls are trying to tell us that there will be impending problems on our ways; however, we can ignore the sign, only at our own risk.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Owning A Cat — Proven To Be Good For Your Health”

The cat is a furry, cute, fun, as well as an independent animal to watch. Also, there are some benefits proven by science which say that owning a cat will be good for the person’s overall health and well-being.

These are some of the benefits you can gain if you are a cat owner:

Lowered risks of heart diseases.

The risks of heart diseases will be lowered as there will also be lower stress levels. Some studies proved that being a cat owner will lower your risk of different heart disease problems, which include stroke.

According to one such study, a person that owns a cat has 30% fewer chances to die from stroke or heart attack than those that don’t own. Even though there is still the question if that is because of the cat or because often calmer individuals are the ones that love to own a cat.

Purring has a therapeutic healing ability on the human muscles or bones.

Despite the fact that purring is considered as one of the best and most comforting sounds in the whole world, it was also connected with some therapeutic ability of healing on the human muscles and bones for a long time.

According to some studies, the frequencies in 18 and 35HZ range actually have some positive effects on the joint mobility at a time after some injury. The purr of a cat also creates some positive vibrations at frequencies of 20 to 140HZ, hence placing the noise within the area of healing.

People will have a better sleep in the presence of a cat.

According to a few studies, people will have quite improved sleep in the presence of a cat, instead of another human companion. And not just that, but they prefer that. Such findings have been confirmed by the Mayo Clinic Center for Sleep Medicine.

According to it, about 41% of the people claimed that they had a better sleep as a result of the pet they own, and just 20% of them said that it often leads to some disturbances.

When a man owns a cat, a woman will feel more attracted to him.

According to certain researches which were conducted by Dr. June McNicholas, who is also a lead pet researcher, when a man owns a cat, a woman will feel more attracted to him.

A huge 90% of those women that are single perceived men owning cats or some other pets nicer, as well as more caring, instead of the ones that don’t own any.

Triggering the release of some calming chemicals.

When a person has a cat in his or her presence, it is going to activate the releasing of some calming or relaxing chemicals in their body, which will lower anxiety and stress levels. So, petting is considered to have to relax and also calming effects.

A lesser likelihood of allergies in children below one year.

The National Institutes of Health has released one study in 2002 which has discovered that those kids that are under the age of one, and who were also exposed to cats, have a lesser likelihood of developing different types of allergies.

This exposure to pet early in their life will protect them against not just allergies to pets, but a lot of other kinds of frequent allergies like the ones to mites, dust, grass or ragweed.

Watching cat videos will make you happy.

The simple act of watching cat videos will make you feel more satisfied and happier. One study which included more than 7,000 participants, conducted by the Indiana University Bloomington, has discovered that simply watching videos of cats is going to boost the energy, as well as positive feelings and emotions of viewers, while also decreasing the negative ones.

When a person owns a cat, it is excellent for the entire environment.

If you own a cat, it means that it is quite better for your environment. One study from 2008 has discovered that all the resources which are needed to feed one dog during his lifetime will create similar eco-footprint just like those of a Land Cruiser.

On the other hand, cats eat less, so they have such the approximate carbon footprint of a smaller hatchback.

Helping people to cope with some loss.

When a person owns a cat, it is going to help him or her cope better with some loss, as well as recover for a short time from it. They are like some type of social support at hard times.

A person can simply talk to eat more easily than with someone else, and tell his or her cat everything as it will never respond or even judge him as humans do.

Those that own cats are smart individuals.

Most often, those that own cats are smart individuals. In fact, it is not actually the cat which makes them smarter, but it is because those people work for longer periods of time, and as cats do not require a lot of attention as dogs do, they are an excellent choice for busy people.

Fulfilling the need of a companion.

Cats will simply fulfill the person’s need of companionship, as one Austrian research from 2003 discovered. According to it, owning a pet, often cats, in your home is actually an emotional equivalent to an emotional partner.

Cats save lives.

Cats are also well-known for saving lives. So, having an animal which can actually save your life in a certain situation may come in handy.

ANDY WHITELEY: “10 Life Lessons You Can Learn From Your Cat”

As we grow to adulthood, we humans learn to override many of our natural tendencies. We “socialize” our children, and teach them to “behave” and resist many of their natural impulses. By the time we’re adults most of us are so disconnected from nature, and from our own nature, that we accept “adult” roles and responsibilities that pay the bills but stifle us, rub us the wrong way and even cause harm to each other and our environment.

Somewhere along the line, we lose touch with the simple wisdom of our natural instincts.

Needless to say, there are many spiritual lessons we can learn from observing nature. Just under the surface, our animal instincts are still there, just waiting to be tapped into, and reactivated, and honored — and what better role models than the animals we love and share our lives and homes with?

Here are 10 life lessons you can learn from your cat:

 

1. Keep a curious spirit and approach uncertainty with a positive attitude.

2. Physical touch is natural, and vital for our well-being.

3. Get plenty of rest, and spend time soaking up the sun.

4. Show gratitude. All it takes is a purr, or a squinty smile.

5. Stretch regularly. It’s good for body and soul.

6. Live in the moment. There is only now.

7. Play. Play. Play. Play. Play!

8. A happy life is a simple life. All we really need is love, a full belly, and a quiet place to rest.

9. Let the inner wisdom of instinct and intuition guide you. If it doesn’t feel good, walk away.

10. Be fearless. Live like you’re on your ninth life.

HIGHER PERSPECTIVES: “The Secret Powers Of Cats”

Cats may be famous on the internet for being funny and adorable, but there may be a deeper reason why we feel an inordinate fondness for felines.

What if cats serve not only as objects of our affection, but also as protectors of our home?

Guard dogs may be effective at keeping away unwanted intruders, but cats fulfill a far more important purpose of protecting the home from a different kind of uninvited houseguest.

Cats and Negative Energy

Recall a time when you noticed your cat staring tensely towards a seemingly empty space or spending a suspicious amount of time around one particular spot in the house.

It’s likely that your cat is sensitive to a concentrated amount of negative energy and is attempting to protect you and your home from possible infiltration by evil spirits and ghosts.

This is because cats bear a uniquely powerful aura, also known as astral force, that works to repel negative energy.

It is possible that this negative energy remains left over from some traumatic experience in the past before you came to live in the home, or the entity could come from outside the home and try to force its way in.

The cat serves as a valuable line of defense for you and your loved ones by attempting to trap the evil spirit in its powerful energy field and lead it out of the house.

Be sure not to disturb your cat if you notice that it is purposefully wandering around your house.

Cats are skilled at discerning the intentions of astral entities and could be following some source of negative energy in the attempt to ambush it and remove it from your immediate environment if it senses a threatening aura.

Russians used to allow a cat to enter a house first before they moved in due to its extraordinarily strong aura.

In that way, the cat could take immediate action in warding away any excess negative energy left behind from previous inhabitants while also providing powerful positive energy if the house was new or had merely neutral energy.

Ways to Remove Heavy Negative Energy

There are ways that you can assist your cat in removing evil spirits and ghosts from your home.

In the case that your cat takes interest in a certain spot in the house, you can read a prayer and perform a cleansing ritual of your choice.

Alternatively, you can burn some White Sage at the spot to eliminate any unwanted energy, as the smoke will attach itself to heavy negative energy and convert it back into light energy.

You can also simply rub fresh White Sage leaves between your thumbs and forefingers, as this can also be effective way to release the plant’s cleansing energy.

You can notice later if your cat continues to return to that spot with any regularity or if the cleansing ritual succeeded in burning away the negative energy.

Protection from Curses and Evil Eyes

Cats also work to protect you and the house from any curses or evil eyes.

Like talismans and necklaces worn in many cultures around the world to protect the wearer from evil eyes, you must be holding your cat for it to be effective in shielding you from the malevolent thoughts of others.

The correct way to hold your cat to enjoy the full power of its force field is to use your left hand to gently stroke its neck while simultaneously using your right hand to stroke across its tail.

This enables you to keep in full contact with the cat and harness the maximum amount of available protective energy.

Cats can also fulfill an important function for their masters through their healing powers.

If you are suffering from serious emotional stress, simply lying down and stroking your cat can go a long way in releasing you from the burden of the stress.

Protection from Geopathogenic Zones

Cats can provide energy protection if you happen to have the misfortune of living in a Geopathogenic Zone.

Geopathogenic Zones are so named because they are locations that adversely affect the health of a person living in them for extended periods of time.

In such locations, there is a dense and steady flow of negative energy for cats to combat.

The Specialties of Cats of Different Colors

All cats provide the protective healing energies described above, although there is some variation between the benefits they may bestow upon their owners.

Read the following description of the specialties of each type of cat and, if in the need of a particular kind of benefit or healing energy, choose the one most suitable for your situation.

Black Cats

They provide the most comprehensive magical protection against occult powers and curses. These cats are most adept at nullifying powerful negative energy that may be dwelling inside a home.

Calico Cats

They combine the benefits of black, white and red cats and provides your home with significant protection from harm. These three-colored cats are often associated with good luck and prosperity.

Blue-Gray Cats

They exert calming influences of emotional stability and bring joy and love to the lives of their owners. The tranquil energy embodied in such cats is often associated with happiness and good luck.

Colorpoint Siamese Cats

They are the most playful breed of cat and help bring fame and success to their owners, as well benefit them with a longer life.

Two-Tone Cats

They carry with them energy that enhances wisdom and common sense.

Tortoiseshell Cats

They specialize in their healing powers and benefit from clairvoyance. This color pattern usually only appears in female cats, giving them a pure energy.

Golden Cats

They are often associated with ancient wisdom due to their status as objects to be revered in temples. They also embody solar energy and grace.

Tabby Cats

They lighten the mood of an environment and provide a buzz of humor and entertainment.

No matter which type of cat you choose, you can be sure to enjoy the benefits from its powerful aura and sensitivity to the presence of evil spirits.

THE POWERFUL MIND: “8-Year-Old Girl Feeds Crows For 4 Years — And Now Receives Gifts From Them”

Ascension Avatar note: “This article brings a smile… I too fed crows and seagulls as a young boy in the schoolyard… giving them most of my lunch… even collecting ‘donations’… 🙂

.  .  .

 

Many people leave out birdseed for feathered-friends in the neighborhood, although few get anything in return besides a lovely view of the birds, and a patio polluted with seeds.

Eight-year-old Gabi Mann from Seattle, Washington started feeding the crows in her family’s garden, and now this lucky little girl gets gifts from the crows.

Gabi keeps her gifts in specially labeled bags tucked safely inside a bead storage box.

After all, these are her most treasured possessions.

Her labels are detailed, for instance one containing a broken light bulb reads: “Black table by feeder. 2:30 p.m. 09 Nov 2014.”

Gabi has received all kinds of gifts from the crows, including Lego pieces, beads, buttons, paper clips and pieces of foam.

Her favorite gift of all is a pearl colored heart, she said, “It’s showing me how much they love me.”

Gabi started feeding the neighborhood crows by accident, as she was prone to dropping food.

She’d climb out of the car and a chicken nugget would fall off of her lap, prompting every crow on the block to circle in for a snack.

Gabi noticed and started rewarding the bird’s quick and hungry behavior, feeding them food scraps on her way to and from the bus stop with her brother.

It didn’t take long for the crows to learn who Gabi was and wait for her to get off the school bus each day.

The crows were consuming most of Gabi and her brother’s packed lunches, but Lisa, Gabi’s mother, didn’t mind one bit.

She said, “I like that they love the animals and are willing to share.”

It was a slow transformation, but soon the whole family became more interested in the crows.

By 2013, Gabi and her mother made offering food to the crows a daily habit.

The pair now spends each morning filling the backyard birdbath with new water and spreading out plenty of peanuts and dog food.

As they set up, the crows gather around and call out to them.

It was this routine that started the gift giving.

The crows consume all of the peanuts left out in the feeders and sporadically leave behind a treasured trinket in return, such as an earring, polished rock, or hinge.

Basically anything shiny and small enough to fit inside of a crow’s mouth has been found in the feeders.

Some of the gifts are truly incredible, like a piece of metal with the word “best” stamped on it.

Gabi finds it funny to think one of the crows is wearing the matching half that says “friend.”

Want your own gift-giving crow friends? John Marzluff, professor of wildlife science at the University of Washington advises, “If you want to form a bond with a crow, be consistent in rewarding them.”

Marzluff has conducted numerous studies on crows, and he has found humans and crows can form very meaningful relationships, although gifts are never guaranteed. Marzluff has never personally received a gift from a crow, but he has seen crows give items to others.

They are not always shiny trinkets though; sometimes gifts from crows can be a bit gory.

Marzluff said, “Some people, their presents are dead baby birds that the crow brings in.”

Gabi has received some disgusting gifts, one time her mother had to throw away a rotting crab claw left behind.

Gabi’s third favorite gift from the crows is a screw, although she prefers not to touch it she considers it a favorite because, “You don’t see a crow carrying around a screw that much. Unless it’s trying to build its house.”

Lisa’s favorite treasure gifted by the crows was her camera lens cap.

She had lost it in an alley near her home while capturing photos of a bald eagle.

Before she had a chance to go out and look for it, she found it sitting on the edge of the birdbath.

Lisa just had to know if it was really the birds that brought the cap back.

She logged onto her home computer and checked on the bird cam. Sure enough, “You can see it bringing it into the yard. Walks it to the birdbath and actually spends time rinsing this lens cap.”
