He is a rather quiet, yet powerful presence - a kind overseer.
I have been spending more time with him lately, as I feel that Reiki is so helpful for cats with kidney problems. And of course, I feel a great deal of love for this dear pirate cat (that’s how he feels to me, a weathered pirate with a sense of humor). He is a very loving cat, and readily will come onto your lap.
Cody often rests on top of a table, where I will sit with him for Reiki, or if he's in the mood to come in my lap, we do that. Sometimes my hands are directly on him, sometimes not, whatever feels right. Often my hands are slightly off him as the energy feels too powerful to have direct connection.
It feels such an honor to connect and work with any animal, but it is a special type of honor to connect with a cat who has had many years of existence, and you feel in the energy connection with them something about all that experience. It is not possible to put it into words, but it feels like tapping into a quiet wisdom that exists inside of the cat. I feel the years of that experience somehow traveling into me, not in specific thoughts but somehow energetically. The energy passes back and forth between us.
I treasure these moments, and am grateful, too, for all the love and care that Cody and all the other animals receive from those at BARC. It is a special place!! xo
