Colouring with Cats #23 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays!


Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

We hope mew've had a fabulously chilled weekend, ours has been fab, the new lawn is done and the suns been shining all its warmz on us.  So let's get mew feeling all nicely relaxed fur the next few days, but if mew're a little tense or stressed we can assist mew in getting your Zen Harmonies happening and that fuzzy feeling of zen-ness back.

 Let's begin with our little breathing exercise, we're sure mew know what to do but if mew've furgotten: purrlease take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Now, we don't know about mew but we love a bit of earthing, what is earthing we hear mew ask?  We know some of mew will have already heard of it, but fur those that don't know; earthing is going barefoot on grass and this helps our bodies in all kinds of ways. Our pawesome planet is full of natural energy as are all living things, so when we walk barefoot on grass or sand etc... [not man made things like roads or pavements] our bodies connect with the subtle energies within the earth and help restore vitality and ground our energies.

Do mew effur touch something and get a static shock?  The P.A. can touch light switches or certain things and there'll be a huge crack of sound and sometimes even a blue flash, so she goes outside barefoot on the lawn and grounds her energy, then it doesn't happen again fur a while.  

It also helps to remove excess positive electrons that build up in the body, which in the modern wurld is completely unavoidable due to a constant barrage of EMF's, wearing rubber soled shoes, never walking barefoot and being out of touch with the natural wurld.

So this week, if it's sunny where mew are, just go and stand on some grass fur a few minutes and see how mew feel, we can guarantee that mew'll feel so much better, go dump all the stress build up into the earth and breath deeply.

The P.A. even has an earthing mat fur during the winter months when she can't go barefoot outdoors, so if mew live in an apartment, or where it's difficult to get your cute tootsies on some lawn, get yourselves an earthing mat and enjoy the same benefits from your favourite snooze spot.  Me and The Hoard can often be found sitting on the earthing mat when it's out.

The P.A. has also noticed that Fudge has a lot of static as when she picks him up as they often share a little jolt of electricity, so she's putting him and his ginormous floof tail on it too when there's no outside time. 

Mew can see Smoochie below really getting his earthing happening, he loves it! MOL 



So this week get yourselves grounded and those zen harmonies happening.

  1. My human is such an indoors person that would probably use an earthing mat all year round! And we live in a part of the world that has gorgeous weather 90% of the time!

  6. I like a good earthing too, but my mum complains that my whites have gone beige. She is always barefoot at home, but still builds up a lot of static when she goes out. Every time she used to take things off shelves in Sainsbury's she would get a shock and make a big cracking noise. They must have done something different in the last few years because it doesn't happen very often now.

    1. Hey Flynn, mew can't beat it can mew buddy, and if your whites go beige, it'll all come out at bath-time so no stress! Oh wow, your mum is the same as the P.A. then for getting shocks, Marks & Spencers used to be the wurst when they had carpet in their stores, that was like a gazillion years ago when the P.A. was a munchkin.
