One of My Greatest Teachers: Issue 2

I started my quest to have my own kitty companion with a heartfelt prayer to the angels and the universe.  I recall standing in line at the grocery store when the feeling of desiring my kitty hit me so strong, I had to hold back my tears.  I believe I was feeling the spirit of my kitty reassuring me that “they” were on their way.  Several months later a friend called to tell me she had found a cat for me.  It was a feral barn cat.  She kept this beautiful grey-blue kitten in a shed for me to visit with.  I felt peaceful and calm in her presence.  I named her Serena.

My friend was gracious enough to take care of her first vet visit.  I met my friend in the vet’s parking lot excited with anticipation to bring Serena home.  She got into my car with Serena in her arms with tears in her eyes.  She said, “I am so sorry to do this to you.  Serena is pregnant and too far along to abort the kittens.  How are you going to find homes for them?”.  I responded, “If the universe gave me a pregnant cat, then the universe already has homes for them”.

I was given the biggest blessing.  It was better than I could have imagined.

I found homes for all the kittens before they were even born.  Serena gave birth to five healthy kittens, whom I had the pleasure of midwifing.  Each one was born in my arms.  Among them was Emmanuel.

The way Emmanuel came into my life has given me a lifelong lesson in manifesting with spirit.  It has been to open my heart more to trust and have faith in my  hearts desires, which comes from my authentic self.

One of My Greatest Teachers

I believe everyone has experienced someone that has influenced, inspired or directed our lives in some positive way.

I am excited to share a personal and heartfelt story with you.

My greatest inspiration and teacher is my cat, Emmanuel. Even though he passed away in September 2013, he is still teaching me about myself through others.

His teaching approach is simple. Keep your heart open no matter what is happening. Be kind and loving to yourself and receive all of the support that is around you, whether you feel it or not.

Through a series of blog posts, I will share what I learned from Emmanuel’s life journey and how it has helped shape my life.
