What a gift it is when a soul companion comes along in animal form! They love us unconditionally and teach us so much as we do our best to care for them. Such was my relationship with Loki, a male Maine Coon I found as a hungry baby kitten, bottle-fed and loved until he transitioned last week at 16 -1/2 years old. When it was time for me to host our biweekly Harmonic Convergence 333 Facebook Live, my topic was obvious.
As I awakened and became more spiritual and holistic, I learned to care for my animal companion the same way. I used flower essences to sooth him during storms and when he became stressed. Veterinary medicines fell short of bringing comfort to his arthritic joints, so I replaced them with pure CBD oil which helped immensely! He enjoyed Reiki and energy work from me and others in my holistic community (on his terms, of course!) as well as cold-laser therapy from his Auntie Rosemary. I also found relief for his urinary tract in the form of the highly acclaimed Urinary Gold for Cats (also available for dogs).
I learned to communicate with Loki telepathically. I easily understood his ‘yes’ and ‘no’ responses to asking permission to give him energy work, change his food, or use medications, and confirmed by dowsing when it came to number of drops of CBD oil he needed at each mealtime and similar. Ultimately this connection allowed me to follow his wishes even when it came time for him to transition and confirming he was ready and whether he wanted my help with that. I am grateful to have given him much more of a voice than I have ever been able to give previous pets.
