“In the early evening of October 2, 2010 I sat beneath a large evergreen tree. I heard my Guide’s voice telling me to go outside. There were no words to describe the atmosphere. It was like I was moving in slow motion.The light was so beautiful. I knew that something was about to happen. One of the greatest chapters of my life was about to begin. As I sat very still I heard “Look. Here he comes.” I turned my head to the left and saw a tiny shape walking towards me. A cat was looking directly into my eyes and he never moved his gaze from mine. Without stopping he circled me three times and sat in my lap. I knew I had been chosen.
The tale of Midnight is miraculous and amazing.
I never expected such a miracle. Perhaps that is one of the reasons the effect of Midnight’s presence in my life is so profound.
In early September 2010 I was deep into my meditation as I sat staring at the beautiful pine tree across the street from my house. My Indian Guide appeared and said “The next stage in your spiritual development is coming. You are going to receive the gift of an animal.” I was startled at first. I cannot say why exactly. I had this idea in my mind that I would always be traveling throughout my life. Many of the things that I thought would happen did not occur and my life is blessed because of God’s choices for me. The feeling of wonderment and excitement stayed with me for several days. One morning I said to my Guides “Please give me a strong sign of the animal that is my destiny.”For some reason I was sure it would be a dog.
The following week when I was sitting at the table in my brother’s house, his cat Lola walked in the front door and stared at me. She sat in the doorway for awhile as if studying me. Then she jumped on my lap, stared into my eyes and pressed her head into my heart. She stayed that way with her sweet little head pressed hard into my heart for about 20 minutes. I felt so blessed. These were new experiences for me.
During this period of time a movie called “Catwoman” was running on television for several weeks. I rarely watch television, however one night this film caught my attention. Halle Berry plays Patience. She is a shy, quiet, good-hearted, and talented artist. People take advantage of her but she never sticks up for herself. After she is murdered she is brought back to life through a supernatural encounter with cats.
I was fascinated by the story and love to watch as the woman becomes more cat like: strong, intelligent, calm, confident. Her dearest companion is a cat named Midnight. He even helps her escape when she is locked in a cell.
After my time with Lola I sent a message to my Guides and Angels. I was overcome with a vision of my cat. Of course this was all planned in heaven long before this moment in time, however I was so inspired this is what I said in my prayers:”I have a few requests regarding my cat. I would like him to be a male so that I can experience more male energy around me. I would like the greenest eyes ever because green is my favorite color. I would also like him to have some black fur because I want to call him Midnight. And this next part is so important: I would like for him to find me.I know I should not go to a shelter or a pet store. I want a cat that has been looking for me. He will know me. I know I am asking for so much but I also know that if anyone can do it My ArcAngels and Spirit Guides can make all things possible. Thank you so much. I love you. I am very excited to share my life with my soul cat.”
I felt happy when I said this prayer. I will never forget that I also felt like a child perhaps 3 or 4 years old as I asked my friends to grant my prayers.
Several weeks after this prayer I went to my brother’s house for a birthday party.

Midnight and I have never spent a night apart.
A last note. When I arrived home that night I heard my Voices telling me to turn the television on.The screen lit up and there was Halle Berry. She was sitting high on top of a building looking at the city lights below. She turned to the cat next to her and said: “Midnight, Your my best friend.”
I love you Midnight.
