The Role of Cats in Magick
Posted by Monique Hargrove on 11/29/2015 to Occult Weekly
As we learn to love and respect the nature that surrounds and sustains us, we learn more about the energetic link that connects all creatures on Earth. Our ancestors acquired vast knowledge from animals, and related to them on a more personal level: animals and insects were not considered lower on the evolutionary scale, but had much to teach us humans relating to survival and sustenance of the land. We now explore a variety of distinct species, their significance within the earth's energetic link, and the implications of finding yourself in the presence of these beautiful creatures, the cat.
Meditation and Magick
With all of the hodgepodge, pandemonium, and even topsy-turviness in the world today our daily thoughts can be easily cluttered. No doubt it is a difficult task to keep track of the happenings at work and home in addition to both the domestic news broadcasts and the news abroad. Upon waking in the morning, one might be thinking about the paperwork that needs to be submitted at the end of the day. However, at the end of the day, this paperwork might constitute a mere side note to the bigger news of a natural disaster or the winner of the Bulgarian version of Big Brother: Season Five. When we try to focus on one thing, it is common that our pattern of thought drifts to another topic - a tangent that is not necessarily desirable to accomplish a goal at hand.
Objects of Power
Many of the great mythological odysseys encompass the search for a great object of power. Some of these objects were said to have been created through Magickal means, while others are composed of Magickal formation that have existed since the dawn of time. These objects of power went beyond the ordinary, and allowed the individual who possessed that object great invaluable powers, whether it fell into the hands of a mortal, a demigod, or an immortal herself. While many of these objects have been discarded as purely mythological, others have been given thorough examination, with some individuals still believing in their existence.
