Note: This story is from a section within the post, “So Tired of This World?” but can be read on its own. It’s also part of the post series, “Stories of a Black Stray Cat Named Shadow.” Image on right is our pet Shadow. I title this pic, “Sleeping Black Beauty.”
I feel better now after freely and fulling expressing my true feelings.
Thank you Beloved I (God) AM (Goddess) Presence/Christ Buddha consciousness within.
In addition, the more bullets (solutions) I added below while typing this post (as I recalled them), the better I felt.
I trust this stems from having unconditionally embraced this very low energy aspect of self today, I think for the first time.
Before, I may have tried too hard at times to force myself to raise my vibrational frequency, when it just wasn’t happening.
When certain others in my outer reality were habitually negative, I sometimes tried too hard to help them, rather than let them simply be on their soul journey, learning their life lessons at their own pace.
We simply weren’t ready to move on to the so-called next level at that moment (aka expand our consciousness).
Recently, I had a vivid dream that I was in a very deep, dimly lit, dried up well with my pet, black cat (who used to be a stray, semi-feral cat).
I held her in my arms in order to carry her up a ladder; however, she resisted by meowing and twisting her body in an aggressive manner. So I let her down, and proceeded to climb the ladder myself.
When I reached the top, I heard her speak to me something to the effect that she wasn’t ready to go to the next level. That’s all I recall from that dream.
Side Note: Though I’ve recorded and shared many dreams within my dream journals and/or blog, this is the first dream where I actually recalled what an animal said to me, which I find intriguing. In another dream I had several years back, I approached what appeared to be two, friendly, talking, grown tigers standing upright (and holding weapons) and seemingly guarding some entrance in the middle of a wooded area (in post, “Dream Messages from My Multidimensional Self“)
Although I did some searching for various dream interpretations of key words within this dream (which I may share in another post if I feel like it), I strongly sensed that I needed to embrace the aspects of self that could use more patience, deep understanding, empathy, pure compassion, and unconditional acceptance/love—mirrored by my cat symbolizing overall unhealed/unbalanced female energy within, and the color black symbolizing the unknown.
The upcoming post, “The Three Cats Seemingly Representing Twin Soul Merging with Spirit” is an interconnected puzzle piece to this story.
