- MIDNIGHT: A LOVE STORY
- In a world that seems to hold so much Darkness. There is always light, there is always hope. Love always finds a way. Love is the most enduring of all emotions. It is always right there, below the surface, buried deep, sometimes as we gently unearth its light, we see the beauty in its flaws. The unfolding of the enduring spirit, that resides in the hearts of all living beings. When we open our hearts to love in all of its forms, in all of its creation, in all of its materialization in every embodiment, in every gesture of peace and kindness. It is then that all mankind and the creatures of the earth will become one in this beautiful dance of life. Love flows like a fountain with no end, always keep your heart open to its truest, purest, and unexpected sources. This is a story about love, it is the embodiment of love, in every sense of the word and all that resides in the very recesses of its very manifestations here in our world, in our hearts, and minds. Love is the light that lives, it burns so bright, it glows from the inside out, despite any darkness. The year of 2020 has been a borage of every kind of human emotion. It has been a test to the human psyche, the human mind, and our enduring spirit, that prevails, even in the midst of uncertainty, fear, and the unknown. This is a story about a Black Cat that seemingly appeared from out of nowhere, totally lost, afraid, and neglected. A Black Cat that clearly had been given the short end of life's stick. Yet, when our eyes met, I knew he would be mine. A month before Midnight had miraculously appeared from behind some bushes at my farm, I had been thinking, I really need a black cat! It had been years since I had one. I am talking, for many years. I was probably 8 years old, the last time I had a black cat. I am a grown woman now, my children are grown as well, so that will give you an idea of just how long it has been. I will add that this entire process, with the appearance of Midnight in my life, has reconnected me to my youth in more ways than I can list. The most beautiful thought that occurred to me, in the building of our relationship is; Midnight made me feel like I was 8 yrs. Old again. He ignited that pure, innocent love, of a child's heart, that wanted so badly to let him know, that life is not as cruel as it had been handed to him, up until this point of our meeting. His appearance ignited within me, the flame of pure, innocent intention, of unconditional love. My heart, my soul, my entire being, was calling out to his battered little heart and soul. I think I needed a friend more than he did. I think I needed to feel hope, I needed to feel triumph over tragedy, I needed to experience unconditional love and healing. It has since come to me, that Midnight was the only thing that could have ever restored my hope, my innocence, my enduring spirit to give love, and receive love, in its purest of forms. Animals have that gift, no human being can ever seem to
- measure up. We are so flawed in our form of love for each other. I often ponder, what would my life be without all of the beautiful animals I have had the pleasure of having in my life, up until this point? There are seemingly, countless, that have helped me understand and experience that bond between animal and human, that magical bond of unconditional love. To the observer, there seems to be no dialogue at all between the two beings. I can assure you, the language of the heart, is speaking volumes at any given moment. Communication happens without words, even between human beings. We are energy, embodied. We give it off, we receive it in all interactions and with all beings. Our vibration, our energy signature even impacts our own spaces where we live and dwell. When we vibrate at the highest frequencies of love, I think love is brought to us, right when we need it most. We just have to be open to every manifestation of this love, in our physical reality! Midnight, though he was skittish, malnourished and full of fear, anxiety and trauma, somehow felt my vibration of love, that I had been sending out, manifesting it back to me. I had been telling some friends prior to Midnight's appearance that I really wanted a black cat! Then shortly after my verbal expression of my desire for a black cat in my life. I had a dream of a beautiful black cat. For me, this is not unusual because what I am manifesting in my life will appear to me in the dream state. I then told a friend I had a dream about a beautiful black cat and once again I said that I really needed a black cat in my life and I would really like to get one but, since I already had three cats at the farm, I just could not justify getting another one. I mean, at this time I already had four horses, two French Bulldogs, three cats, and a gaggle of chickens! How could I justify getting another cat? My husband would be like, oh no, here she goes again! I did not want to even tell him, I wanted a black cat! Though he has been super enabling, as far as supporting my enduring love for saving every stray I can find. I just could not tell him my new hearts desire was a Black Cat! Not too long after I had the dream of the beautiful black cat, this same cat appeared to me psychically! I had a clairvoyant vision of him. His eyes were the most mesmerizing golden eyes I had ever seen! I was like, okay Universe, you are playing with me! It was not a week later, after his clairvoyant vision that Midnight appeared in my yard! He was hiding behind some bushes and peered out at me after my sweet little temptress, Mittens walked out from the very spot he had appeared! There is no doubt she brought him home! He followed her, I mean, everyone is looking for love, and sometimes in all the wrong places! But, not this time! My heart literally leaped with joy!! I could hardly believe it, there was my Black Cat! When our eyes Met, it was love at first sight! It was the kind of eye locking moment that you realize, there is work up ahead, there is a lot of healing that is going to have to take place but, the love is there, behind the eyes of fear, the light struck me, like a flash. There was never any doubt that I would be able to tame him down, and show him that love, hope and a family was his. He just had to work with me. I had plenty of time. I mean what else do you have to do during a pandemic? It took me nearly a month to be able to reach out and pat Midnight. I would feed him special canned chicken. It is amazing what canned chicken can do to win the heart of a starving, petrified cat. The first time I gently touched him, he bolted. It was progress, yet my heart hurt, because I know how badly he had been treated. Gradually, as the days progressed, Midnight would come out of the brush where he slept, at the sound of my voice, calling him by name. I
- could see the delight in his eyes, that someone cared enough to call him by name, and he happily obliged by being very vocal back and he would eventually, slowly approach me. I would sit on the end of my open horse trailer, and feed him there every day. I kept a routine. I gradually moved the food dish closer to me every time I would feed him. He would position himself so his tail would touch my leg as he ate his food. I could tell, he just loved that little bit of human contact. We then got to a place where I could pat him, and eventually, he would just come up to me, brush against my legs, and welcome me to his yard! It just made my heart happy. Every time he brushed against my legs, I could feel the love, and clearing energy, he was returning the favor of my kindness ten fold, and if there was ever a time I needed clearing, it was right now, in this train wreck I call 2020! We gradually moved from outside spaces of contact to the interior of the barn, again, this took time for Midnight to feel safe in a closed space, even though I had the barn door wide open. I would sit in my chair, and my next goal was to have him sit in my lap. This too eventually happened. When it did, once again my adult heart was replaced with the pure love and innocence of a child’s heart! His body was so warm as he sat in my lap, it was then that I figured out, Midnight was a natural healer. I know the energy signature of a healer, as I am one myself. The first time he jumped in my lap, I could feel the warmth of his unconditional love, my entire body was filled with the heat from his healing energy and love! It was so warm, it felt like I was having a hot flash! Then when he finally decided he had been in my lap long enough, when he jumped off, the bottom half of my body went weak. You know that feeling, of your very first kiss, your first true love, when your knees get weak? That is the love Midnight gifted me with! Once again, I was like a young girl again! What an amazing spirit, what an amazing gift Midnight has been! My next goal is to make him my office cat. We have been working on getting him comfortable inside of the house. His trust in me, allows him to overcome his fear of being trapped inside. It is such a good feeling to know that he now looks to me, a kind human, for safety. I look forward to so many more milestones with Midnight, and I know, he will go down as one of the most enduring love stories of my entire life. We truly have a bond that transcends space and time. There is no doubt in my mind, Midnight and I have been together through many lifetimes. He is without a doubt, a familiar. To me his appearance in my life, at this perfect moment in time for me, is proof of how the Universe is always working on our behalf. We just have to have the heart and mind of a child. We can never stop believing in miracles. We can never stop believing that we deserve them! Keep dreaming, keep manifesting all of your hearts desires! If you want a Black CAT! Go and adopt one! Black cats have had a stigma attached to them. Trust me, the love you will receive from a black cat, is Magical, and Mystical in all ways that are good for the soul! I don’t know about you but, I personally enjoy the Mystical and Magical things that life has to offer us! I am open to it all, even in the form of a Wayward, and once lost Soul, that I call Midnight. Midnight You Have Found Your Place In This Crazy Year 2020 Peace to all, human and animals alike.
- A True Story, Written By: Melissa Kennedy An Animal Communicator, Intuitive Healer, Spiritual Advisor As a side note: To all of the people out there that are open to all things unexplained, and not yet embraced by the masses - Midnight has been with me in this lifetime, he was that cat I spoke of, from my earlier years (In that incarnation with me, he was tragically hit by a car, it was my first devastating loss, I will never forget it). My Brother and I both stayed home from School the next day. We had lost our first family member. Midnight has also appeared to me clairvoyantly, wearing the cutest little golden crown. He is truly an ascended, higher being. (AS are most cats, or dare I say all cats)! We also shared a life in Egypt. He was actually a cat being, like you see in the Egyptian hieroglyphics. Half man, half cat. He has shown me images of what we looked like together in that lifetime. So amazing, he has also shown me some pyramids with ancient writing on them, rising up from the earth. The pyramid is covered in moss, and as it rises above the surface of the earth, the moss disappears and the pyramid becomes dark black in color with purple and green ancient writing. I can’t wait to see what else Midnight has to share with me. He is truly a deep and soulful being!
**As you can see, my dream came to full fruition**! Midnight is a much Loved house cat, and my healing support cat! He heals me, while I heal others! xo Rev M
