Practical Cats

Jeane: This dream felt light and amusing, but I don’t remember all of it.

In this dream there is a project that needs to be completed. A group of us are in a theater, looking at images on a large screen. It feels like we’re working on a very big project.

We are talking to the people in charge; a female co-worker and I are two of the people involved. She and I are commenting to the managers that we can get a lot of work done. We feel we can get more done than our male co-workers. My friend does pop into the conversation to say “You have to remember that we are old cats.

I say, “That’s right, she gets up early in the morning so she has that covered, and I stay up late at night so I have got that covered. But you do have to remember that we are old cats.”

John: If you think about the energetic of a cat, a cat feels its world acutely. If it doesn’t feel comfortable with the energy of a room or a person, it can disappear or seem aloof. It’s not like a dog that comes up and loves to be petted by almost anyone. A cat has its own mannerisms; it listens to its own dialogue.

This dream, in terms of the “old cat” energy, is showing you a dialogue that you are supposed to be able to listen to, in yourself, on an ongoing basis. It incorporates an energetic that’s like the one we see in a cat, where they get things done, or do whatever it is they need to do, with maximum efficiency.

It’s like they use the fewest possible movements to get somewhere. That is the efficiency of working with a vibration, as opposed to trying to make something happen from brute effort, i.e., in the face of resistance.

So your dream is playing with you – one part of you is getting up really early, and one part of you is staying up really late. The combination of the two creates an efficiency that allows you to get more done than someone who is younger. The imagery also shows the feminine aspect being more efficient than the masculine in this kind of effort – the big project.

There is a sense of humor in this imagery, but the hint is that you can catch up with this vibration inside, and it will enable you get even more done – to flow more efficiently with the world.

I wouldn’t necessarily have associated this with the energetic nature of a cat, yet a cat does have this disposition where it carefully screens its environment – they’re very good at reading a situation. Once they read and understand a situation, they are able to use the least effort to navigate what needs to be done next.

So that is a connection that you have and that can serve you well if you listen to it. The idea is for you to see and recognize that mechanism inside. It’s not a question of age, it’s more about being connected into the flow of things.
