Pets as companions and supporters in making your dream come true


Hope’s message

As you move forward with your dream – making it come true in your life – you can often find support in unexpected places. Loving support can come from your own animal companions, like this message from Hope, a kitten we rescued when she was small. In one of the first Sacred Spirit Journeys I did for her, she told me her name and her core message; excerpt below.

“You can call me Hope, for I bring blessings of peace and the promise of a bright future for you all. Never lose hope – keep hope in your heart, nurture your dreams and return daily to the peace necessary to move forward with grace and ease. Don’t keep sabotaging your dream out of fear, but bring hope with you wherever you go. With hope comes peace. As you embrace me and integrate me in your home, the hope and peace will spread and become part of everything you do and are.” ~my cat, Hope

In a later Sacred Spirit Journey I asked Hope about the significance of her name and message.

Listen to Hope’s new message:

If you have animal companion animal, take some time to connect with them. What are their special qualities, and what does your heart tell you when you ask the question: how are they supporting and encouraging you to connect with and move forward with your dream?

  1. What a beautiful post Marianne! I absolutely love cats and am currently housesitting and have the pleasure of looking after the home owners pets, all of which have been cats so far. It is such a joy for me to spend time with them and they’re all highlighting aspects of myself πŸ™‚ The main message seems to be about enjoying the moment. They sure know how to enjoy being cuddled and call me on being fully present in the moment with them, no multi tasking πŸ™‚
    joyful blessings, Tina

  2. Love this post Marianne! I love pets. Unfortunately where I live I can’t have a pet. I haven’t had a pet since 2008, when my loving cat of 12 years died. I miss having one, they’re so full of unconditional love and joy πŸ™‚

  3. it’s been nearly 12 months since we helped our 16 year old Border Collie, Edgar, cross rainbow bridge. I miss him so very much. His constant presence. His infinite love. His playfullness. His love for frisbee and our grandkids. I named Edgar after a king of Scotland…and a king he truly was.


  4. When my cat, Charlie, died, I thought I’d never get over it. I’d had other cats, but Charlie was very special to me. About a year later, with one little female cat still left at home, my daughter brought over a little female that she found going through her recycling bin trying to lick out cat food cans. I didn’t think I could handle another broken heart so I said no, but that night she came to me in a dream and told me, “My name is Charlotte and you already know me.” I knew Charlie had found a way back to my heart. She is now 8 years old and I also adopted another little girl named Laura. The love I receive from them every day has helped me to grow as a person and as a writer. I can’t imagine life without them.

  5. Love this post Marianne and it reminds me to savor these wonderful moments with our pets especially with my dog Cammi who’s winding down her life. She has supported me in reaching my dreams in so many ways. Blessings

  6. Marianne, Interestingly, I just had an article published about my pet Simba in I love Cats magazine about our healing journey together. Animals have a lot to teach us if we learn to open up and listen.

    I love my furry babies. I feel like my cat is there to bring calm and peace to my sometimes frantic mind. He always joins me for yoga and meditation and even does some yoga poses to.

  8. Each dog seems to have his or her own project. My old chocolate lab was really “into” my feeble attempts at fiction. Thanks for posting.

  9. Such a beautiful post to our beloved animals. My dog has been my constant companion from 6 months into becoming chronically ill & stuck at home. She is a Godsend and makes me smile every day. Thank you for sharing!

  10. I love this blog post! I have a basset hound (Emma), and she’s been part of my entrepreneurial journey since the beginning. In fact, she was the inspiration behind the name of my first business, Hound Dog Social Media. Like your kitty, she brings me Hope and Peace. She keeps me grounded. And she’s the best naptime companion. =)

  11. Lovely post. πŸ™‚ I never thought I would or could be connected so close with an animal, but after we bought Norma, I so get it!
