Manifesting Missing Kitty
Before I left town last week, a law of attraction savvy friend asked if I’d send good intentions for her missing cat.
That one always gets me. Well, pretty much anything to do with our companion animals. Sick cats, missing dogs, unwanted bunnies. Years of animal rescue have contributed to my (old) vibration of sadness and hopelessness when it comes to our furry friends. I’ve worked purposely to leave that vibe behind, but it’s always there waiting for me when the opportunity arises to activate it again.
I told my friend I would send good thoughts for her and cat. Then I thought about how hard it must be for her to lose her cat. That’s a scary time, not knowing what’s happened; retracing the events wondering if you’re responsible.
That’s pretty much what I vibrated: sympathy, compassion, lost cat.
Not “reunion with cat.”
Can you feel the difference?
I wasn’t aware of it at the time.
But I became so, when I came home from my week in the Bahamas and discovered my cat was missing. Big surprise, huh? (not)
Yeah, that’s how this works. We get what we vibrate.
So – as my cat sitter tells me he hasn’t seen Elsa in five days, and he’s worried some evil fate befell her, I feel my worry vibe grow.
I’ll spare you (cat owners) the details of my anxiety so you don’t go there vibrationally, but this is a good story of how LOA works when we remember to work it. Here’s how it played out:
Early evening she still hasn’t shown up, so I step out on the porch to call her. I bring tuna with me, but she’s a no show. I optimistically try to imagine all the fun she might be up to. Maybe she’s on a big adventure. Maybe someone found her and they’re lavishing her with love.
But I don’t really believe she’s on a fun adventure. My thoughts easily slip to, “What was she doing outside?? How did she get out here? How well does she know this neighborhood?” I know she wouldn’t go far. If she were here, she could hear me. Is she trapped? Hurt? Confiscated by animal control? Will AVID have her information properly recorded, so the shelter could contact me?
I continue this routine throughout the rest of the night, as my thoughts wander back to missing kitty. I pace the yard, calling her name over and over. I feel guilty for not being a better cat guardian, and worry she might think I left her. I knew I shouldn’t have left town.
Okay, that’s enough looking. You’re doing no good with those thoughts. Go to bed!
I try imagining she’ll appear in her own sweet time. That’s a nice thought, but it quickly digresses to, “Will I see her dead body in the street tomorrow morning? And what is she eating? Is she finding water?”
Go to sleep, Jeannette! This isn’t helping!
Before I go to bed I remember to run a quick errand. Driving home, I finally get to a good vibe. I recognize I’ve been carrying worry, and I know that can only keep her lost. I imagine my friend’s lost cat, and what she should do to let her cat come home.
She should FEEL her home now.
Oh, HELLO! That’s how that works. I remember now! Sheesh, Jeannette!! Feel Elsa home now.
Feel the relief of seeing her safe and sound on the back porch, waiting patiently to come back in the house. See how nonchalantly she flips her tail on the porch, as if nothing out of the ordinary has transpired at all. It’s not a big deal at all to find her safe and sound, because you knew all along she was just fine.
She just didn’t like your cat sitter. No big deal. She laid low. She’s ready for some tuna now. She’s safe and sound. Relief. There she is, safe and sound.
Yes, I can feel that vibe now. I’ve got it. I’ve got a good grasp of it. It feels good.
I’m home free now.
Having gotten solidly to “relaxing” about it, I finish up the night routine and head to bed. Once there, I hear a dog scratching on the door. Probably Koda wanting out. I get up, open the door to let him out, and see an empty tuna can that I may as well run out to the recycling bin. On my way to the trash in the dark, guess who I spy lounging on top of the old scratch post?
That’s right. Sweet, nonchalant Elsa. Flipping her tail to let me know I’m disturbing her peaceful night’s rest.
Hello, Sweetie. A couple pets confirm she’s a-okay. Ready for her nightly sleep. Must have been a big day.
She lets me bring her in without protest. Too bad you missed out on tuna, young lady.
And before I drift off to sleep, I remember to thank Universe for bringing my cat home safely. Gratitude. Relief. Relaxing.
Wow, what a nice vibe combo.
It’s hard for Universe to match us up with a reunion while we vibrate worry. I know it’s even harder to vibrate relief while someone’s missing. But – we know how this works. That’s how we let it in. Vibrate it first, then it happens.
Someone remind me that next time Elsa goes on a big adventure. : )
