In the midst of a riveting conversation about fairies from Ireland with Mary Murphy (singer songwriter) we heard a knock at the door, or was it a cry?
Mary was explaining that if you ever go to fairyland you are not allowed to leave. There it was again a sound of something at the front door.
Could Mary and I be hearing the spirit of Stu knocking at the front door or were the fairies playing tricks with us?
Mary had heard the story of Stu (our departed furry friend) and his ability to knock at the front door, so we both braved opening the door ever so gently as to not scare away the ghost of Stu. Much to our delight, there was no ghost, just a little grey kitten vertically hanging on the screen door, meowing. The little gaffer came down and made his way in the house and proceeded to make himself at home.
Now let me take you back one day where in the midst of my daily regime of yoga, prayer, journal writing and meditation I had reread a journal entry from February 2014. The entry had brought tears to my eyes as I read a gratitude entry of Stu who had spent the morning doing yoga with me. Here is a snippet of the entry:
“I had a wonderful leisurely morning with my cat Stu. Did you know cats lay in areas of your home to take away negative energy, and then go outside to cleanse themselves. Well must be loaded with negative and unbalanced energy today! As I practice my yoga routine Stu laid on my heart first, then moved down to my root chakra, then to my hand chakras, then proceeded to pat my head. Imagine a complete chakra balancing treatment. He’s now outside basking in the sun. I am grateful of “Old great cat warrior for the loving treatment!”
I miss my friend Stu and in the moment asked the “universe” that if I was meant to have another cat, that I would want a male, and very affectionate, and loving cat. I asked for it to be delivered to me in a way that I would know it was meant to be.
Do you think a kitten that knocked at the door, found hanging on your screen door a good indication of a special delivery?
In spite of “asking” for a special delivery of a cat I still questioned its validity. Why do we do this? Why do some of us have a hard time “receiving”? Is it because somewhere in our lifetime of experiences that we were made to feel undeserving?
Appropriately today I received an email message from the Universe. It stated:
I can assure you, Carole, that the time will come when you, too, will ask, "In what fields did I sow seeds to deserve so very, very much."
“You were born deserving!” Wow! How many of us can honestly say that we feel deserving? When we can accept that this statement is true, we then can easily “receive”.
Know that you are “deserving”, that you are worthy of receiving. I gratefully receive my new furry friend Oso. A very loving, affectionate kitten that has opened our hearts and filled it with love.
Yes “receiving” is life giving, and we are all deserving!
