Pick a Color – A Reincarnation Adventure

Last Saturday afternoon, I walked into a UPS Store, cat carrier in hand.  It was filled with goodies – a tiny litter box, foam cushions, a tee shirt smelling of Nedda, Violet, and Sakhara, flower essences for a calm journey, plastic dishes for cat food and water, and a catnip gifts for momma, poppa, aunts, siblings and cousins.  The people in the store looked at me a bit oddly until I explained that I was not planning to ship a live animal by UPS.

So Star’s travel chariot is on it’s way to Star, who will get to try it out on the last weekend of this month.  Am I excited.  Definitely!

At the same time, I find that I’m also grieving Echo’s passing again – some lingering sadness and loss.  I’ve spent a bit of time thinking about other losses – other goodbyes I’ve said in the last few years.  It’s a very healing process, although definitely unexpected.

On Sunday evening, Mary from Reprise Siamese called.  I asked her if we knew what color Star will turn out to be, and she laughed.  “It’s really impossible to tell.  This little girl keeps changing colors.  I don’t dare tell you a color because it can be different tomorrow.”

That really surprised me, but Mary explained that it can happen that a Siamese cat will not settle on a color for quite some time.  “We once had a kitten we were certain was going to be Blue Point (dark grey legs, ears, mask, and body hair tips).  That one finally decided to be Chocolate Point (light brown in all the aforementioned locations).  So Star’s color will be a surprise.”

Somehow this doesn’t surprise me.  One of the Nature Spirits I’ve worked with in the past is Spirit of Horse, who appears as a stallion and looks iridescent to me.  I once asked about that, and he showed me that he is constantly changing colors, but so rapidly that in my mind’s eye he appears iridescent.

Echo, herself, was flea-bitten grey, which means she had mostly white hairs on her body with tiny brown freckles.  In the summer she got darker – had more brown hairs.  In the fall, when she grew her winter coat, she had more white hairs and got lighter.

I’ve had conversations with many, many animals over the years.  Some prefer to incarnate into specific species and some prefer specific breeds within certain species.  Some even prefer specific colors because the frequencies of different colors have different energies.  That makes sense, since color is energy, just like everything else.

So Star is experimenting with different color schemes.  It makes me smile. . . and I guess I’ll have to take lots of photos when she arrives so we can all watch her change colors.

Maybe I should have a contest so we can each guess what color she’ll end up?

While Waiting – A Reincarnation Adventure

In the last 2 weeks since I’ve posted about Echo’s reincarnation into a kitten named Star, I’ve become very excited about her impending arrival.   I’ve focused as much as I can on getting ready without trying to rush things forward.

When we ask the universe to step in and arrange things and then get of the way, the universe arranges everything to perfection.  This may be difficult for us humans to believe, but I have found it to be so, over and over again.

I asked the universe to make travel arrangements for Star so I wouldn’t have to drive a 20 hour round trip to Reprise Siamese Cattery in Virgina to pick her up.  For a while it seemed that I’d have to drive half-way there and back, 10- hours round trip.  Then the universe really showed off.  Turns out that some good friends are traveling from South Carolina to upstate New York the weekend of September 29.  Perfect timing.  When I asked if their travel plans went anywhere near the cattery and whether they would be willing to bring Star to New York, everything began to shift into perfect alignment.  So Star will be coming most of the way with dear, loving, capable friends and I’ll be able to meet her in New York, driving only 3 hours or so each way.

I asked the universe if there was someone who could do the driving with me to New York, and I immediately remembered someone with whom I’d driven a long trip once before who is a safe and competent driver, a delightful person to spend time with, and a light worker as well.  Turns out she’s available and excited about doing the trip with me.  Perfection again!

Star’s Chariot

I asked the universe to help me find a way to get a litter box that will fit into a large cat carrier, and it showed me a website where people had designed a litter box for one of their cats who travels with them frequently.  The instructions were all on the site, so Star now has a cozy carrier with litter box built in and plenty of space to cuddle up and rest on the trip.

Apparently, Violet is in charge of inspecting the travel arrangements:

Violet puts her scent of approval on the chariot.

During the last 2 weeks, Echo has shown up about 3 times in her spirit body to say “Hi.”   She’s always in horse form, but her energy seems finer – thinner – lighter.  She says this is because she is focused on being in the kitten body and on figuring it all out.  It’s sweet of her to check in with me.  I always love it when she stops by, if only for a few moments.

One day I walked into my bedroom and discovered Sakhara sitting on the bed facing Violet, who sitting on the floor.  They were looking at each other intently, clearly having a conversation.

“A family conference?” I inquired.

“Not exactly,” was the reply.  “You’re not invited.”  (This gives me a laugh.  Like I need an invitation???  My cats know me well and say exactly what they mean.  My feelings weren’t hurt, but my curiosity was burning.)

I asked why I wasn’t invited to this clearly important conversation.  Neither cat would tell me.  So I asked one of my animal communication professional mentees to see if she could coax a bit of information out of either cat.

Turns out Violet and Sakhara were discussing what to teach Star about being a cat.  Sakhara, who is very grounded and understands the importance of grounding, felt that Star was having trouble grounding and that this was the most important thing she needed to learn at the time.  Violet, on the other hand, felt that it’s more important as a cat to be able to run, leap, and fly around, and she wanted Star’s training to focus on that aspect of feline life.

I was just as happy not to be involved in these discussions.   Since I completely trust both my feline companions to do the task of teaching Star what she needs to learn, I was happy to have my curiosity satisfied and to mind my own business thereafter.

Since then, Sakhara as been good enough to share that Star is coming along very well.  She requests that I continue being patient.  I’m doing the best I can.  It’s difficult – but I have lots of other things to do, like figure out where to put more litter boxes, with feline approval of course. 😉

Patience Is Essential – A Reincarnation Adventure

August 23, 2012 by

I spoke with the people at Reprise Siamese last night.  The mysteries of Echo’s return still abound.

For one thing, old bloodline Siamese kittens mature slowly, so that even at 4 weeks of age, the sexes and colors of these kittens are still uncertain.  There is definitely 1 female, but there might be 2 more.  The color of the female is still uncertain, too.

It’s hard to imagine that I’ll be bringing home a kitten in just 4 more weeks, and it may not be until the very last week that we know which one is coming.

So – patience is the name of the game.  Still the questions abound.

  • If the female isn’t Seal Point, and she might not be, then did Echo get the color wrong, or did I?
  • OR – is Echo actually in a male body, and we don’t know that yet?
  • How do we for sure go about identifying this kitten?

In my past experiences with clients and with Violet’s arrival, I have always said that the most important thing is sensing the energy – the consciousness of the spirit.  That’s the only way to know for certain.

Of course, I plan to have a conversation with the kitten before we all get in the car.  That will be how I personally am sure.  And because the folks at Reprise Siamese are so psychically aware, they will be observing and looking for signs, both subtle and mundane.

So what I am absolutely certain of is that

  • this will all fall into place perfectly, and
  • I must be patient.

As for photos, the folks at Reprise are having technical issues with their computer and are focused on cat and kitten care, which is absolutely Number One Priority for them, which is exactly as it should be.  So those of you who are hungry for pictures will just have to join me in learning patience.


The Name – A Reincarnation Adventure

August 14, 2012 by

Yesterday I spoke with Echo in her spirit body for the first time since the litter of kittens were born at Reprise Siamese Cattery in Virginia.  Echo came in looking as she always has – a magnificent Arabian.

“Hello, darling,  I’m so happy to be with you.  I wasn’t sure I would meet you in your equine form, now that you’re in a kitten body.” I told her.

“Well, most of me doesn’t fit into such a tiny body,” Echo quipped, laughing about how she didn’t exactly fit into a horse body either.  The soul is quite a bit larger than any physical form on the planet, even whales and giant prehistoric animals.

“Have you settled on a name yet,” I asked her.  “Everyone is asking and I’m very curious, too.”

“You’ve been getting it all along.  You just didn’t trust yourself,”  she replied.

What I got at first was Star, then Starlight.  The registration name will include the cattery name.*

“Yes,” Echo confirmed.  “You can call me Starlight or Star.  Either one is fine.”

“How are you enjoying being a kitten?”

“Better, now that my eyes are open and I can actually see.  It’s a lot of work figuring out how the body works and learning how to manage it.”  And speaking of that, Echo disappeared back into the higher realms.


* Regarding registering pedigreed animals:  You usually have to submit at least 3 names because duplicates are not allowed.  So Star’s registered name will include “Reprise” + Starlight + some other possibilities.   This process isn’t put in place until after she comes home.

“Echo. I come.” A Reincarnation Adventure.

"Echo. I come."

Sunday Morning – July 15, 2012 – as I prepare to take a walk, the spirit of Echo, who had been my Arabian horse companion for 22 years and who has been in spirit since 1998, popped in to say she’d like to chat.  We often chat on walks, but Echo had not requested a conversation this way ever in the last 14 years.

So I headed out the door to walk through my quiet, wooded neighborhood, delighted, as always, to speak with Echo.

Usually, on walks, Echo shows up after I’ve already left the house.  She gallops past me in her spirit body, looking much like she did when she was a young and fit Arabian mare.  She’ll often gallop far into the distance, mane and tail flying, and then turn and trot back, settling down beside me for an affectionate visit.  Echo used to wiggle her nose against my neck, much as a horse would groom another horse friend, and when she does that in her spirit form, I can feel it.

This visit was different.  Echo walked beside me as I went down the driveway, around the bend, and onto the next street.  I’m was bursting with curiosity because – well – this was definitely different!

“I’m coming back,” Echo announced.

“OK.  You do remember that I can’t have a horse right now, so if you plan to be a horse, you’ll be with someone else,” I reminder her.

“I’m coming as a cat.” Echo said, as if she were saying, “Nice day today.”

“I’m coming through the same cattery that Violet came through.  I’ll be a female and Seal Point.”

[For those of you who’d like to read about Violet’s arrival at Reprise Siamese,  you can read the whole story in Violet Returns.]

“Echo, have you ever been a feline before?”

“No.  I think it will be interesting and fun.”

“You realize,” I continued, “that cats are predators.  They eat meat.  Their bodies are very small – much smaller than the one you had last time as a horse.”

“Yes, I’ve considered all that,” Echo replied.  “It’s time for me to be with you again and since you can’t or won’t have a horse, then I’m coming in a form that you CAN have.  Remember that I always wanted to be in the house with you or at least on the same property.  This will make that possible.  Besides, it’s a great adventure.  And you need me, especially as we move into the shift and the New Earth.”

“Well.”  I responded.  “We need a family conference.”

Violet and Sakhara in meditation.

With everyone telepathically connected, I shared Echo’s announcement with Violet and Sakhara.

Sakhara –  “Hmm.  Well … this could be interesting.”  [Curious and considering the possibility of another cat.]

Violet  – [Silence . . . colored by a sense of reluctance and unhappiness.]

I turned to Echo and said, “I’m not sure this is going to work out for a whole variety of reasons.”

Echo responded:  “I’m coming.  It’s decided.”  And she left.

* * * * *

For the next week to 10 days, I was on an emotional roller coaster.  I couldn’t imagine Echo as a cat, Siamese or otherwise.  I could somehow think of all the reasons why this wouldn’t work, and I couldn’t get excited about it.

I felt overwhelmed and exhausted.  Part of this was a detox I was experiencing from allergy elimination treatments for mold.  Part of it was that 3-D habit of finding the negative in everything.  Part of it was that human reluctance to accept change.  Part of it was . . . well, there were lots of parts.  Thank God for good friends and flower essences!!


Meanwhile, Sakhara, who had had a litter of kittens before coming to live with me and who had helped raise Violet from a kitten, was growing to like the idea.  She sensed Echo’s incredibly high and gentle energy, and decided Echo would make a good addition to the family.  She even decided it might be fun to have another kitten to help raise.

Both my feline friends work very hard to support me and my/our service to humanity.  They each work differently, and they also work together.  Sakhara has strong Earth Mother energy and is very grounded most of the time.  She once showed someone a picture of herself with a tether tied around her middle and me attached to this line floating high above her like a helium balloon.   Clearly she helps keep me grounded.  Sakhara also helps with clients and teaches in my Animal Communication classes.


Violet is also a powerful healer who works with Violet Ray frequencies.  After a number of very difficult lifetimes as cats, she came into this life to be immersed in Love while in physical.  Over the last 13 years, Violet has been working on past life issues with me while simultaneously teaching in my classes and holding/grounding higher frequencies on the planet.  Violet meditates daily and encourages me to do the same.  She has a wry sense of humor and can make me laugh uproariously.

Violet is not big into sharing, either me or her home.  So I was very concerned that she accept Echo’s coming.   She has a strong need to be in control of her life (mirror, mirror), and I’ve seen her  make herself very sick and even die when she felt she couldn’t be in control or have her way.

* * * * *

So I called one of my human friends, and told her what was going on.  She sensed that Echo was coming very quickly and I had no time to mess around.  She urged me to check in with the people at Reprise Siamese.  So I called them on Friday of that week.  I had a delightful conversation with Adele, one of the staff whom I had met when Violet came through 13 years ago.

Reprise Siamese is a very loving place where each cat and kitten are handled and loved so deeply that it reverberates throughout the house.  Adele is psychic and is open to hearing things like, “My horse is coming back as a cat and tells me she plans to come through your cattery.”

Adele was excited by my news.  She told me that one of their young “queens” was due to have kittens the following week.  I was stunned.  The “great coincidence center in the sky” was lining everything up.  The felines at this cattery tend to have 5-7 kittens, even in a first litter.  And the new mother-to-be was Seal Point, which is a very dominant color genetically.  Adele and I talked for nearly an hour and when I got off the phone, I was certain that Echo was very likely to be in the litter that was due to arrive.

* * * * *

The following weekend, I left a phone message at Reprise Siamese asking whether the litter had been born.  On Tuesday or Wednesday of the following week, Adele called me.  Sure enough, that Friday, July 27, there were 6 new babies at Reprise – and at first glance, it appeared that 3 are female.

But the most interesting part of this saga is that Adele had received a message from Echo either the Friday of the birthing or the very next day.  As she described it, she heard the name “Echo” and then felt a sensation that she interpreted as, “I come.”

This aligned with some things I had experienced on the Saturday after the birth.

First, I heard, “Am I blind?”  “Newborn kittens eyes are closed for the first few weeks.” I responded.   Foals (newborn horses) are born with their eyes open and have to stand almost immediately and be able run soon after.  This is one of the differences between predator and prey babies.

Then, I sensed, “I have fingers” – definitely not a hoof, here, as Echo noticed the differences in her new paws.

When I tried to speak with Echo, she didn’t respond.  Sometimes I don’t sense her presence at all, and other times I can feel her focused in on learning to be inside and to manage a kitten body.

Later in the same day I was shown a picture of all the cats – a blue point (Violet), a cameo colored British Short Hair (Sakhara), and a seal point (Echo) all curled up together in a triangle of support and harmony.

Stay tuned for the rest of this reincarnation adventure.
