Shandy’s song – Love never ends

a Pass-Along Card !

 

You know I love you, I always will,
My mind’s made up by the
Way that I feel
There’s no beginning,
There will be no end

This Song is dedicated to all Cats and Cat carers  from –

Cats Remembered Forever

&  of course to  ALL cats and their carers everywhere!

Our beautiful boy Shandy   passed away  on 24 February 2016 at 2.34 pm.

Those who know me well, understand that I believe in a “bigger world” than what there seems.  I believe all Life forms are spiritual beings or sparks of consciousness from the “Divine” or the Source, incarnated into physical forms.

I believe that our Shandy cat was a special Be-ing sent to us, to keep us together and to teach us responsibility and how to Love.  One month has passed now since he departed us, and his messages are still coming in strong.  First of all, let me say that I once experienced a cat that had crossed over, returning in Spirit form, to let us know she was okay and in spirit form.   That was a long time ago, when I began looking into our spiritual essence and connections.  I am positive that Shandy cat will also visit me in Spirit, if I call upon him!

Easter reminder – look after your Pets

At this time of love and renewal, let us remember our connection & dependence upon our animal companions and the “Animal Kingdom”.   NO Bunnies for Easter unless you love rabbits  AND  are completely prepared to look after them.  NO CUTE KITTENS or PUPPIES either, ever, unless also you know you will be committed to look after them.  All Animals are Souls in animal form, including  US human beings!   We are the species Homo sapiens, a member of the animal kingdom.

Thank you to the non-human animals for your care and love of us, and for your service ( some of it not done willingly or to the animal’s liking or preference ).  I only wish Homo sapiens could be more like non-human Animals –  intuitive, intelligent, loyal, willing to take on others burdens, able to cheer others with a simple action, knowing what they want, getting what they want, and loving ….. right until the end.

Look,  Don’t  touch,  or  BUY  or  TAKE,  unless you can  LOOK AFTER US FOREVER

BE   RESPONSIBLE  –    NEUTER   YOUR  PET  –   DON’T  DUMP ANIMALS

Smart machine feeds Strays – highlights abandoned Turkey pets

vending-machine-feeds-stray-animals-in-exchange-for-recycled-bottles-1

To raise awareness, a Turkish company, Pudgeon, has designed an innovative vending machine that not only helps feed these stray animals but takes care of recycling, too. When you feed the machine a plastic bottle, it disperses food and water for stray cats and dogs.

Hopefully this concept will get the outside world as well as the authorities in Turkey doing something to humanely decrease the plethora of stray animals roaming Turkey streets.

Maureen Moss says that  “A beautiful portrayal of Virgo’s Divine maternal quality can be seen in the Praying Mantis, whose form actually resembles the shape outlined by the stars of the constellation Virgo.”

Wow, I am quadruple Virgo – the Sun, Uranus, Venus & Pluto in Virgo, with Scorpio rising!

A week ago on Saturday 30 May, Praying Mantis had my back – literally.

If the Praying Mantis comes into your life, the wisdom of this animal totem can be” be calm & peaceful“.

You need to calm yourself down, take it easy, and just blend in with your circumstances.

Kingdom Animalia
Phylum Chordata
Class Mammalia
Order Carnivora
Family Felidae
Genus Puma

The symbolism of the Cougar is ease, grace, strength and focus.

The Cougar is the largest cat in North America.   Cougars are solitary and nocturnal, and are excellent hunters.  Cougar teaches decisiveness, and imparts resolve to those who come across the “Cougar” or have her (him) as their Totem Animal or as an animal ally.   The Cougar has a high sense of awareness and intuition, and can sense what is happening around her/him for miles, and thus can make the right decisions to both fend off danger and carry out other actions.

The Cougar spirit animal represents the Fury of the female spirit.  As a Mother, the female Cougar will fight violently to protect her cubs and feed them.   She will do whatever is necessary to provide for her cubs and ensure that they are always safe.

The “Life of Pi” Book Review

Life of Pi Illustrated Edition Cover 3

If you read this book, it will quite likely not leave you un-changed.  I have a beautiful slip-cased copy of the book, illustrated by Tomislav Torianic.  It is signed by both the author and the illustrator and is copy number 1173 of a limited run of 3,000 such books.  Published in 2007, it consists of 449 pages.

Here is my very own personal review of the novel written by Yann Martel, “The Life of Pi.”  Please do not read, unless you really do want to know what I thought about the book upon reading it.

Please be warned that there are “spoilers” at the end of this review.

If you are squeamish and want to avoid gory details and even another gruesome twist right at the end of the story, which wasn’t in the movie, then DO NOT read the book.

First, let me say that I eagerly rushed out to watch the movie, directed by Ang Lee, and while I can’t say I really enjoyed watching the movie, because as anyone who knows something about the movie (and the book) it was about survival at sea; I found the movie evocative and amazing.  Now, onto the book.  I really wanted to read it to see if there was an elaboration of Pi or the author’s connection to God in the book.

Orang-utan Beanie Toy

Wild populations of the orangutan, found only in Aceh Province in southern Sumatra, Indonesia, have declined by 80 percent in the past 75 years. Only about 6,600 orangutans were left in Sumatra, according to the   “Rarest of the Rare”  2010 report.   It really breaks my heart to think that these amazing and wonderful animals could become extinct.

Click on the “Read More” link below to see more photos of the Beanie toy.   The time is to ACT NOW, not to stick your head in the sand and ignore matters like this, or to leave them to others to help.   Show your appreciation for Life on Earth by signing the Petitions – it only takes a minute of your time.  Thank you!

Spirit Guides & Finding your Power Animal or Totem Animal

From my understanding, we all have access to the divine realm of spiritual guidance or spirit guides, to assist us on our Journeys through life.  I believe that there is more to us than our physical, visible bodies.

We are made up of matter, as are non-living materials.  At our smallest unit, commonly agreed upon, we are made up of atoms.  But atoms themselves are made up of electrons, protons and neutrons, which themselves are composed of space and light.
