I met the cat Braydon in the summer of 2017. His wonderful owner had found me through the last article written in this magazine about reiki and animals. She shared with me she is not really a magazine reader but felt compelled to pick this one up. It lay on her table for a while before she decided to read the article. That's how I entered Braydon's life and he entered mine.
Braydon is a majestic, beautiful, soulful cat. Orange and white with intense green eyes. A soul that was meant to cross my path for an amazing exchange.
I started working with Braydon doing reiki, animal communication, and other intuitive healing methods to support him. He was very ill and his owner felt he was entering the last phase of his earthly life. I would see him approximately every 2-3 weeks for his treatments. It was clear my role would be to bring him serenity in all ways, to make him as comfortable as possible physically, and to be the telephone line between he and his owner. Answering questions they both had and communicating his needs to her to make him as happy as possible during this journey. He knew. And it was clear to me the honour with which I had been bestowed.
This is Braydon and I during one of our healing/communication session
In February 2018, the time came. It was scheduled and would be happening peacefully in his home. I arrived first and took some time with him to explain what was about to unfold and offer energy healing. The way I communicate with animals is telepathically, it is the most efficient way I have found to receive and give clear messages. He had some fears that needed to be addressed. What will happen to me? I explained and showed him where he would go, what and who he would find there. His fear dissipated right away. Then another fearful thought came, but what about my partner? my person (speaking of his loving owner)? What would happen to her? I reassured him that I would take care of her. He made me promise. I had to reassure him more than once about this matter.
This selfless concern astonishes me every time I encounter it. What is most important to them is the well-being of their owner, their friend. It brings a wave of pure love to me as I write this line. Their unconditional love is a gift I have yet to find in other earthly beings.
But he was not done being nothing less than incredible. I would be humbled and graced by his wisdom one more time. When his moment came, I stood aside sending energy healing to him and everyone in the room. As a medium, I know that "death" as we call it is merely a transition for the soul from one vibration to another. There is a reason animals can see departed loved ones; their energy vibrates at a higher frequency. This is what I explain to my clients to assist them in their understanding and to bring them comfort. I have this immense privilege of being able to tap in these kind of frequencies so I can be of service to others. And I thought I understood death, transition, and frequency vibration really well. But I was about to realize there was more to learn.
Braydon started communicating with me before all was done, but then he continued communicating during his transition and continued after he had left his physical body. There was no separation during this whole time. Nothing changed, no stopping, no discontinuation. Putting this into words is difficult, it is a true "soul experience" as I refer to them. I had just had the privilege of experiencing the truth of the soul at the moment of passing. Our loved ones truly are right there with us. I never doubted it, but this was to experience it in an unusual way.
This day changed me. See this was my very first time being asked by an owner and animal to be of assistance for the entire process, from the very beginning in 2017 to the moment of grace in February of 2018. Since then, Brayden has come back to me, announcing he would be acting as one of my guides - helping me in assisting human beings and animals during their transitional time, as well as supporting the family.
I write this to hopefully bring you a different perspective as well as to lend comfort as it relates to our journey as a soul, no matter in which body you reside here on earth.
I will forever be grateful to this gorgeous Prince with the green piercing eyes. I am honoured to have him as a teacher and honoured to share some of those teachings with all of you.
