WHO AM I?

I am as dark as night. You can see my eyes at night as they pierce the blackness. You won't see me on the tour path as my home is on a road less traveled. I was declawed so I wouldn't be able to destroy or hurt anything or anyone. But, I am a big cat and wild at heart. Removing my claws made me very angry. I always wanted to be a mother. I don't have any kittens, only a mate that is hard to find at night. Take a big guess Who I Am.

WHAT IF?

The cats ask, "WHAT IF........You were aware and remembered I am what I am because you are what you are, are we WHO we think we are?"

Only The Best Peaches

When was the last time you received something and didn't feel as though you deserved it? Peaches knew something better existed for her, but when she finally received a new home, it didn't take much time for her to adjust to her bigger surroundings. She didn't give it a second thought. She jumped right in there to check out her new home, and the other servals she would soon get to know. Peaches didn't question her worth in receiving this gift, she just felt gratitude.

Do you want to know the best way to avoid rejection and feelings of unworthiness? Peaches has a juicy tip for you. Stretch out in your favorite chair and close your eyes. Ask Peaches to come close and help you as you let out a deep sigh. Think of something you really want. Visualize yourself receiving it. See as many details as you can. Feel yourself receiving it. Act as though you already have it. Are there any feelings of not deserving it coming to the surface? If so, Peaches reminds you that the universe is providing it to you because you helped to create it.

By allowing yourself to accept this gift, you will feel the tenderness in your heart that will naturally shift from unworthiness to a deep feeling of gratitude. Holding the gift in your heart says "yes" to the universe and gives thanks. Send Peaches a heart hug full of thanks as you see yourself in a new way as she has helped you shift from questioning any unworthiness to a heart full of gratitude.

WHO AM I?

I don't come from Georgia, but I am very sweet. In my younger days, I only knew the feel of concrete under my paws and had a small run. I didn't know what to do with all this new space when I came to the sanctuary. Now, I chase the lizards and butterflies. I like to lay on top of my den which is surrounded by palmetto bushes. I am always waiting for a hose to come close to my Cat-A-Tat. You can always count on a hiss when you say hello. I will melt your heart when you know how grateful I am to be here. No more juicy details until you guess Who I Am.

WHAT IF?

The cats ask, "WHAT IF........You were aware and remembered the Golden Rule-Treat others as you want to be treated. Are you treating us as you want to be treated?

Embraceable You

What do you do when a part of you has been taken away to help heal the pain? Shatia, a loving Canadian Lynx, started to hug trees. She couldn't climb the way a cat was created to climb with her claws because she had had the extremely painful experience of being declawed; however, she improvised by using hugs to climb to the top of a branch. Everyone needs a hug and is a great way to reconnect with your heart.

Cats are notorious for using positions to help them be in the right place at the right time. Shatia whispers to come close and lay on your back with your arms relaxed at your sides. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Visualize someone who has hurt you that you have not been able to release. See them standing in front of you as you reach out with your left arm and wrap it over their right shoulder. Wrap your right arm around their left side of their waist. Give them a hug and feel them hugging back. As they do the same with you, Shatia has just shown you how easy it is to give a heart hug as your hearts are physically in alignment with each other, connecting with a tangible energy flow that will continue after the hug is released.

A hug can communicate several feelings whether it be love, compassion, reassurance, friendship or just a friendly greeting. It is something we crave throughout our lives and can heal hearts. Send Shatia a heart hug for showing you how easy it is to position yourself to create a connection that can help you climb to the top of anything you are doing and help change the world.

WHO AM I?

I can hug a tree better than a bear when climbing. I have to listen to my heart because it is not always strong. I am still very curious about things even though I like to sleep in my favorite spot most of the day. You have to look close to see me, but once you find me, I will acknowledge you with a lift of my head. Some people don't think I am very good looking, and my hair can easily become matted, but I make up for it with how sweet I am. Did you catch a glimpse of Who I Am?

Feelings in Translation

It's not unusual when you see an ocelot for the first time to misunderstand them. Even though they can be real stinkers because their natural home is in the Rainforest, they never mistake what they are feeling. Amazing Grace is very vocal and it would be easy for you to confuse how she is feeling because of all the different noises she utters. Grace has some insights that will help you translate what you are feeling.

Stretch out and relax as you get comfortable. Visualize Grace curling up beside you, and ask her to guide you as you begin to look more deeply at your feelings. Grace is asking you if feeling butterflies in your stomach or feeling your heart beating fast is a sign of fear or could they be translated as excitement and curiosity as a new opportunity comes your way. Sometimes we have not been taught how to welcome an opportunity, so we indulge our anxiety instead of awakening our courage.

Framing events or situations a little differently can drastically shift our mental state from one of fear and resistance to one of openness and excitement. Grace encourages you to be vocal about this new way of seeing things by saying out loud, "I am excited about...." or "I am looking forward to ...". As you verbalize your feelings, you will feel your energy shift from fear, which often paralyzes you, to excitement, which empowers you. Next time you see an ocelot, do as they do, be vocal about how you feel and claim your power as you move into action when the opportunity presents itself. Thank Grace for a new way of translating how you feel into a positive way of BEING.

WHO AM I?

Come see me, come talk with me, come and get to know me. I will make you feel like you have really connected with a cat. I know I am very vocal, but that is part of my charm. You may think I am a real stinker and I am. I wear my feelings on my sleeves as I can be very emotional. I tend to be high strung and get frustrated easily. Enrichment is so important for me. Follow your nose and you will know Who I Am.
