Last week I got to do a lot of animal communication sessions, most of them with cats. On Saturday alone I talked to 7 cats total. I am definitely a cat person, so I am not complaining at all. I have always had cats, and currently enjoy living with two cat companions that I love to pieces.
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.
Klara would put me to bed every night, and during the day she joined me on all my adventures at home. We had a large area of tall grass that reached me to the waist, where Klara and I would play Marco Polo. I would hide in the grass and meow for Klara to find me. Once she did, she'd run to go hide and meow until I found her. She was my closest companion growing up, especially in my teens when I was going through difficult times. Klara also helped me develop my photography, as she was my number one model for many years.
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.
Klara died a few years ago. It was one of the hardest losses for me, despite knowing that she's still connected to me from the other side. Most of the time when I connect with her, I just feel her presence, but around a year ago she did send me a little sign. I had been thinking about her quite a bit for a few days and also mentioning her to some friends. Then all of a sudden someone or something had managed to hack into my instagram account, changing my name to Olga. Olga happened to be Klara's name before we got her. I know enough now that there are no coincidences when it comes to signs from spirit.
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.
One of my favorite parts about doing animal communication readings is that it demonstrates just how vast we and animals are as beings. Animals have intricate inner lives and unique roles in the world. There is so much more to us all than what meets the eye, and probably more than we can even imagine.
I am forever grateful to Klara for opening me up to do this work.
I hope you all have a lovely Winter Solstice and holidays.
