To know her was to love her, and so many people did. It’s the end of an era.
R.I.P. Magic Heart
After 20 plus years of service my dear, sweet kitty Magic Heart has gone to kitty heaven, where she is a big time kitty goddess angel.
This is a cat who had more than 9 lives. She had flower essences nearly every day of her long life.
For many years she hung out during the day in the Star Essence office where the office angels would let her have the run of the place, and usually have a special cup on one of their desks with water and essences in it just for for Magic Heart. I also had a glass for her on my counter.
You could often find MH in someones lap. Here she is with Harry - my dear friend that also made his transition to the realms of the angels recently. I know he loved her as well. In spite of how vocal she was, and even when she (accidentally) scratched him.
My dear friend and personal chiropractor Dr. Margarita said “Oh sweet healing cat, most vocal one, MAGIC HEART… so good you were with your family… she was an amazing little being. I loved how she helped me during sessions." She would often jump on the table when Dr. Margarita was working at the office.
My friend Julie helped me bring her, and my other kitty (Inca) across the country from Santa Barbara to Hot Springs, Arkansas. We drove straight through, on account of the cats. They hadn’t met each other (Inca lived on the ChaskaNorte land and Magic Heart lived in town).
They each thought they were only cats, so it made for an interesting ride that Julie deemed one of her top “burn your underwear” trips. We felt if we stopped at a motel and let Inca out, we would never get her back - so we opted not to stop.
Here is a photo of Magic Heart and Inca. Inca waiting patiently for Magic Heart to move away from her (Inca’s) food.
Right around November 11th (11:11), Magic Heart didn’t eat for about 3 days (and she had become a 3 can a day girl). My friend Kayse and I even did last rites for her out on Lake Ouachita - then she rallied. I feel she felt my fear of finding her deceased. I never wanted her to be in pain (and I don’t think she was) and I never wanted to have to make the decision to put her down. I’m sure she knew that, and chose to leave while I was absent. While she was in the care of sweet neighbors who took care of everything, and I was with my human family.
Dear Magic Heart made a peaceful transition while I was gone for Thanksgiving, and my kind friend and neighbor Stephanie was taking care of her. We had spoken about the possibility of her passing, even though she seemed to be doing well, so Stephanie was somewhat prepared.
While I feel a deep sadness, I also feel relief, as I knew she was nearing the end of this assignment. I know she is doing big time good and fun things in kitty heaven.
So many of you who visited the office on Yanonali or took classes there, met her. I feel her presence still very strongly. Every time I walk in the door and she isn’t here to greet me. The things about her I took for granted. And she was, indeed, on of the most talkative kitties ever. VERY opinionated and high profile.
As I sit here writing, Magic Heart has become very present. She has been around a lot recently. Every time I come home and open the door - she seems to be there. Often in the kitchen I find myself almost stepping over her. Now, she is talking to me about enjoying all of the essences I used with her. Most recently I was using Happy Pet, because it has Balance and Stability and Faith and Courage in it. It was my previous cat (Lilac) who wanted that formula, and I so created the Happy Pet constellation. It’s like a pet rescue remedy, and covers a lot of bases. I sprayed the Happy Pet Spray all over and around Magic Heart's bed, especially in the final weeks, and it kept that frequency sweet. At her end times, she spent a lot of time there. I put the Happy Pet drops in her water, and on my hands sometimes when I was holding her and petting her.
All of the animal formulas that I made after Happy Pet came from necessity, for Magic Heart. They are the only “medications” of any kind she had after I got her (except for an occasional over the counter flea treatment). My granddaughters gave her to me for Christmas, and she did have her baby kitty shots.
Magic Heart is letting me know she is going help me expand our essences for animals. They even helped her when she had a stroke (yes, she had so many lives). What we have so far for animals in addition to our Happy Pet, is our Kidney Formula which were both birthed to help Magic Heart. When she was sick and I checked on the internet, she had classic symptoms. When I was looking at the medications offered, the ones that resonated most were the homeopathic ones. Then Magic Heart would tell me to make her up a flower and gemstone remedy, so I did, and they worked.
Magic Heart had a long, loving life. I miss her.
Another dear friend and neighbor, Veronica, gave me this poem:
Thanks for giving me the good life of being your little cat.
For all the years of a purrrrrrrfect life, and so much more than that.
A new life now, we’ll live, both you and I, and never will we part,
because my Love will remain
The Magic in your Heart
