Animals are healers
Did you know that there is healing power in a cat’s purr?
I have always maintained that animals are highly intelligent, emotional, reasoning, spiritual beings – and they are natural healers.
They are adapted to our sense of well-being, both physically and mentally. When we take the time to learn how they communicate, they have the capacity to help us heal…
… and to tell us when they are in pain.
Why do cats purr?
Most people associate a cat’s purr with happiness. And it’s one of those times you want to hear your sweet kitty purr… when she’s content and curled up in your lap. Makes you feel happy too, doesn’t it?
However, pet owners should be aware that cats will also purr when they feel anxious, and when they are sick and in pain.
It can be misleading… and can lead to long term suffering for your poor cat if you don’t pay attention to the signal they are sending you.
Because it’s true that a purr is soothing… when they’re not feeling well, they try to soothe and comfort themselves.
But this soothing purr goes deeper than a comforting sound—there’s more science to it than you might think.
They don’t purr to soothe themselves the way we would listen to soothing music…
… because scientists have discovered that all cats around the world purr at a specific healing rate.
The healing frequency of a cat’s purr
Research has shown that all domestic cats – and most feral cats – purr at exactly the same frequency. Their spins vary between 20 Hertz and 150 Hertz.
Amazingly, these frequencies align with and correspond to optimal conditions our bodies need to heal damaged tissue and bone.
In fact, the medical community took note and created similar frequency emitting devices that help heal broken bones and other types of problems.
That’s because our cells actually change shape and repair themselves faster when exposed to these frequencies.
We’ve all seen cats do acrobatic leaps, park around the room… it’s hard to believe they don’t crack their joints or pull a muscle that twists into a pretzel that does that.
When you understand the medical reason why cats purr, it turns out that they might just be hurting themselves… and their purring gives off a frequency that helps heal that torn muscle or sore hip.
In fact, some researchers have concluded that this is one of the reasons vets are required to perform fewer major surgeries on cats compared to dogs… cats have a trick up their sleeve, a healing superpower.
Because animals are natural healers, it’s time to consider that when your cat curls up and purrs on your legs, chest, or one of your arms, they’re trying to share their healing superpowers with you.
Animals want to share their healing powers.
My late husband always loved to cuddle with our one cat, TuffyTiger, a sweet-natured, big-hearted gray tabby.
It was the strangest thing… every time he laid down to rest, she would be on top of him, in a certain spot, stretched out across his chest, purring on top.
She would snuggle into him and always end up sitting over his right side… over his liver.
This went on for years. He always felt rested after resting with TuffyTiger lying on him, purring her heart out.
After 18 years together we separated. Not long after, he began to suffer from pain in the chest and stomach area, and unfortunately later discovered that he had inoperable “bile duct” cancer. In fact, his body was full of cancer.
For all these years, our cat, TuffyTiger, had shared her healing power with him through the power of the purr, stopping the pain, improving his health and well-being.
And when he no longer had access to her daily soothing services, the cancer grew at an alarming rate. He died a few months later.
Pay attention when a cat is working on your body
I’ve learned to pay attention when an animal takes an interest in me, and especially in a certain area of my body… what are they trying to communicate?
So many times the animals I meet tell me that their human seriously underestimates their intelligence and intuition.
Whether you are learning to talk to your pets, asking a pet communicator like me to have a conversation with your pet, or just trying to stay tuned in to the messages they are trying to give you, there is so much to learn.
Animals are spiritual creatures – a window into your soul and a reflection of your condition.
Listening and paying attention to the cat’s purr will open a door to knowledge, understanding and healing.
