Three cats, one lap. How’s that going to work?
I told the them there was enough Reiki, and enough love, to go around.
At first I didn’t think they believed me. It is, admittedly, a line we hear when “enough” seems like not nearly enough. But they worked out the logistics for themselves. The tabby stayed put, the black cat sat on my shins, and the calico decided it was more fun to stay on the counter and swat. We all settled in for the session, just as it was.
Then there was the horse who gently nudged his chicken friend when he decided he’d shared enough of his grain. She took it in stride and moved on. No biting, no squawking.
All living beings compete for resources. We see our animals get jealous. Yet when we build even a little more trust in ourselves and one another, “enough” can look very different.
