You know they say that only the sky is the limit when you use your imagination. We are creative beings and we express our creativity while dreaming or while creating something with our hands (or paws!) while awake. Creativity is closely tied together with the passions. I have ignored my own passions lately, due to some health issues and I am not happy about it. (About forgetting what is really important. Passions!)
I have thought that I have to do something about it.
Then my cat threw a challenge at my face in a recent animal communication session.
Mr. Zorro actually challenged me to write down his stories.
Say what? Oh, yes.
He shared with the animal communicator that ‘he is just one curious kitty. He likes to roll and play and look and observe (he loves to play with Christmas balls and watch as they slowly roll & swirl around) He said that sometimes, when he looks at things or out of the window he loves to make narratives and stories about what is going on — especially when the other animals do not engage in conversation (it is known that he loves to chat with wild animals) when he asks what is happening out there… Zorro says he has these wonderful stories in his head and if I ever indulge in such activities with him, I could write them out and express my creativity in that way.’
Well… It actually feels like it is one damn too big
challenge dream for me. Maybe I can begin by drawing?! I have some colored pencils waiting for me and my fingers are itching to get to work. I have kept my creativity at bay. It needs to get out and play. If it plays with Mr. Zorro, fine! I am sure he would enjoy that, too.
I have known that animals dream and day dream and tell stories. These are things they mention in animal communication books frequently. I just never realized my own cat has similar activities. Have you ever wondered what animals day dream or dream about? Animal communicator Eileen Leskovec has actually taken the time to ask them. Animals do day dream and they dream at night. — However, some animals do not dream at all… The answers may vary as you can see from animal communicator Sandra Mendelson’s blog.
Like always, there is never just one absolute truth out there in the Animal Kingdom. You are likely to come across another blog post by another person about this subject that is completely different. Things have the tendency to change, to evolve or to just keep us on our toes — just for the heck of it… You can’t measure life (of the animals) on this planet with just One Perfect Answer (that suits Your belief system and makes you feel happy and safe and all goo inside). This is what keeps us questioning, living, dreaming… and living in this moment.
This moment is the place where you can enjoy your pet the most. Meditate, dream or play together… Create the things that you both love. You can do all these things with your pet while s/he is on this earth plane with you. The dreams are important but life is here and now. I also need to remember that.
Dreaming is one way to send your will & intention out there, to the all-mighty Universe, just before you take action (action is always required after the dream is created). Will and intention are something Mr. Zorro says I do not give enough credit to. So maybe these will be my lessons this year, huh? I wonder what else my precious cat boy has in store for me this year. He has been the keeper of my dreams for three amazing years and he has always something new up his sleeve when he gets to speak up. I have such a wonderful tuxedo cat in my home that I am living a dream already.
We both have our challenges but as long as we are together, it does not matter.
