A BON VIVANT BOTH SECRETIVE AND SENSUAL
A land animal with a deep sense of curiosity and adventure, the spirit cat has a sensuous nature and highly independent spirit. A wanderlust and sensitivity to its surroundings leads it to seek out beauty and novelty far and wide.
According to ancient beliefs, due to their x-ray vision, acute hearing, and high intelligence, felines have been used as protectors throughout history. In ancient Egypt, they were not only responsible for guarding the temple gates and fending off evil, but were also treated like royalty and given special privileges. Their innate ability to see extremely well in the dark and feel at home in it carries the metaphysical meaning of being able to traverse fears with ease. The spirit cat teaches us that the physical and spiritual worlds are not separate. The spirit cat acts as a fearless animal guide that lends courage and confidence, guiding you into a world of self-discovery and transformation. Unlike humans, it is said that a cat's energy field rotates in a counter-clockwise direction, allowing it to absorb and neutralize negative energy – just by petting a cat, your energy field might perhaps feel realigned and your inner balance restored.
The spirit cat appears in your life and connects with you as a reminder to stay curious and enjoy the magic of life, but also break out of your insular world to see things through the eyes of others so that your independence and secrecy does not lead to isolation. Those who identify with this animal guide value autonomy and in their work can find fulfillment through travel and design.
Traits of the cat are Secretive, Curious, Sensual, Independent, and Adventurous.
