Talking to all these felines has me thinking back to when I was younger and communicated with animals in a more subconscious way. I think back to one cat in particular. I was 10 years old when my dad secretly got us a kitten while my mom was gone on vacation. We named her Klara, and she was the love of my life. At first, Klara was crazy like most kittens (she would literally climb our walls), but she developed pretty quickly into a terribly affectionate and connected companion.
I moved out from home eventually, and Klara had to stay with my mom because my new apartment didn't allow cats. I went back home to visit one time when Klara had been missing for 2 weeks. I immediately went out and called for her: not just verbally but I called out to her soul. She came back home that very day.
The connection we had was always a subconscious one. I would think about her, and she would come running. I didn't think of it as communication between us, necessarily, but just a very close intuitive connection. She understood me and I understood her. I didn't question it, nor did I feel the need to label it. It was a gift to me.
I think this is how many of us feel about our connection with our companion animals. We understand them on an unspoken level, and they understand us. I didn't begin to communicate with animals in a conscious way until I began developing my mediumship and psychic abilities. I had always wanted to move in the direction of animal communication, but mediumship got me first. At one point in my mediumship development, I had the opportunity to attend a practice circle with the focus being animal communication. I hadn't taken any classes first, but when I tried it out, it felt so effortless and smooth, like I was always meant to do this.
Now I have two gorgeous cat companions, named Humphrey and Gilly, that I couldn't do without. They love to support me in my work, and will lay next to me any time I do phone readings from home.
I am forever grateful to Klara for opening me up to do this work.
