Cat and mouse true story.
This morning started out as usual. Yerba Mate Tea, checking e mails and then off for a walk with a friend through the gardens. It was a beautiful sunny fresh morning. We chatted, walked, looked at the flowers and laughed. I came home with nothing but the thoughts of a lovely breakfast, soft boiled eggs, delicious. Everything changed when I went to open my kitchen door.
I saw my cats entranced by something behind the door I’d opened.
Sneaking a peek I saw this tiny gorgeous little mouse behind the door, petrified for it’s life. As well it might be! Cute as they are (see pic) they’re lethal when they want to be. I kept the door jammed open but inaccessible to the cats (mouse hidden in corner behind door) and let what seemed like a tidal wave of thoughts move through my head in seconds.
All these thoughts rushed through my head at once. Literally at the speed of light, a jumble of different scenarios of what to do. First off came the ‘oh it’s just nature, don’t interfere’. Then came the mother instinct to the dear sweet mouse, shouldn’t I try and rescue it? As soon as I thought that, panic set it.
How on earth was I going to catch a mouse and keep it away from my cats at the same time. My head spun back to I can’t and it’s just nature, leave it alone. Thankfully the mouse’s cute face had stuck in my head and ashamed to say it, so had the idea of the ensuing mess that could happen. Entrails would be left all over my lovely carpet, gruesome I thought. Knowing my cats it occurred to me that they would torture the poor thing for hours and certainly this wasn’t ‘nature’ as they are a rather well fed pampered pair. They definitely didn’t need to eat this mouse.
I still had this thought of ‘I can’t’. Truth is I could if I had to, but so much easier and more fun with help! Finally I got the idea to get my friend who happens to be a neighbour and ask her to help. Oh there was a light bulb moment. Why is it we think we have to do things all alone? I just knew she’d be great, she’s an animal lover and has rescued other animals and birds in distress. She came in, somehow managed to bring with her a plant pot (handy that) and some card from the hallway to place under it. I got the cats right out and locked them in a room. She talked sweetly to the mouse and got it and took it to a safer place outside and into the lovely gardens.
So what do you do when you think something’s just natural? Is it just natural to hold onto beliefs of a lifetime because they have become part of you, or would you like to change them? I know only you can do it, and you can’t do it alone. Sometimes we just need a little helping hand with tricky beliefs and thoughts, just like I needed a hand with the mouse. At Theta Healing Academy we specialise in helping you change subconscious beliefs that have been holding you back from living the life you love. Check out our sessions page if you’d like some help.
