“…OUR PRECONCEIVED IDEAS OF OUR CATS HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED”
During a recent visit to Australia, my sister-in-law Kristine booked a session with Faye so that she could better understand the two foster cats she was taking care of at the time. After the session, she shared what transpired from the communication – I was beyond impressed.
The information Faye provided Kristine with, made it possible to deal with the two cats in a different way and both eventually got over the trauma they had experienced prior to being fostered. Being able to communicate with the two cats through Faye greatly enhanced the relationship between cats and humans in the house and consequently, both cats were adopted.
When I returned home to Java, Indonesia, I told my wife about the experience and we decided to contact Faye to see how our 3 adopted cats and 2 street cats were doing, and whether there were things we were not aware of that could make a difference in the quality of their lives.
Well, once again, Faye did not disappoint. Her insights and the information she relayed that our cats wanted to share with us allowed us to experience a paradigm shift where our preconceived ideas of each cat were challenged – for example, the one we felt was the strongest was in fact the most insecure! This fact is now so obvious, yet we were unable to see it before.
The session allowed us to understand their needs much better and shift our expectations, interactions and care to a different level. Since the session, our indoor cats seem much happier, much more relaxed, which creates wonderful energies in the house.
As for our two outdoor friends, they are the same – the session just allowed us to better understand where they are coming from – eliciting more compassion in us for the struggle they experienced.
The session with Faye made us realize that our entire relationships with animals are purely based on assumptions we make about them. The session allowed for some of these assumptions to be challenged and we now see how important a once or twice a year session is needed in order to REALLY touch base with our feline friends.
But more than anything, a session has the power to shift a human / animal relationship to a whole new, different level: that of seeing our animal friends in a very different light, one that shows them to be creatures of their own right, ones who have their own thoughts and feelings to navigate their lives. And we think that, more than anything, the perceived difference in the way our cats are with us since speaking with Faye comes from our own recognizing of their individuality.
