Day #75 (General and Sacred Space)
Cats have been revered for centuries and can be dated back to Egyptian hieroglyphics and their role in ancient Egypt and their spirituality.
Though according to Feng Shui cats hold a different energy which is not so highly regarded.
Traditional Feng Shui doesn’t recommend having cats as pets as they create Yin energy.
Within a home or business it is healthier and more active when yang is created. Bringing cats into your home can quieten the energy as they sleep for so many hours a day.
Though in Pagan or Wiccan culture cats are commonly called the female healer’s ‘familiar’, meaning the cat has the ability of accessing both worlds.
The seen and the unseen. And having them within your space can help you to also access both worlds.
Cats also love geopathic stress and will regularly sleep in spots around the house or space that have a stressed energy.
They tend to also take on the negative energy to help clear it, they will reflect the humans challenges and assist in clearing this e.g. I am currently having issues with my stomach and at the same time our cat Sama (pictured) is displaying this energy by vomiting regularly. Poor little thing.
Though this sort of attraction to negative energy that cats have, seem to be seen in Chinese culture as a negative trait. That the cat attracts the negative Qi and darker energies of the unseen world or entities.
From my personal experience I don’t resonate with the belief that cats attract any darker energy and mainly feel that they have the ability to see what is already there, only showing the humans what is beyond our own sight sometimes.
I’m a cat lover – not a cat hater.
Practical tip though, please keep them inside at night to protect our native animals, and have them wear bells to alarm our bird friends.
