More Than A Beautiful Voice

Every time you go to the sanctuary, a variety of voices can be heard as each cat proudly declares their own unique voice. Whether it is Cameron roaring or Arizona hissing, each have their individual signature traits and idiosyncrasies. No two voices are alike. How often do we neglect to hear these resonances under which their verbal expressions are floated over?

For instance, when you hear Arizona hiss, it can fill you with laughter and good feelings or if you hear Cameron roar, pride will swell within your heart and when you hear Bengali or Buffy chuffing, it is as though a long lost friend's welcome is warming your entire body. Shadow's meowing can function as a mantra that is repeated over and over or Amazing Grace's growls and howls can make you feel as though you are an irritation that just won't go away.

The cats know that their voices have the power to heal, love, comfort and transform others. Every time they use their voices, they send their energetic imprint out into the universe and to the people around them. They are communicating what they feel, desire and what they mean. They are making us aware that our voices have an impact, and we can consciously choose what we are expressing, remembering what we are communicating goes beyond what our spoken words are saying. Take responsibility for the power your voice has to impact the people and world around you. Do as the animals do...let your voice be a sound that creates harmony and compassion in this world.
