The maneki-neko (招き猫, lit. ’beckoning cat’) is a common Japanese figurine which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. In modern times, they are usually made of ceramic or plastic. The figurine depicts a cat, traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail, with a paw raised in a Japanese beckoning gesture. The figurines are often displayed in shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors, dry cleaners, laundromats, bars, casinos, hotels, nightclubs, and other businesses, generally near the entrance. Some maneki-neko are equipped with a mechanical paw which slowly moves back and forth.

Maneki-neko come in different colors and styles and vary in degrees of detail. Common colors are white, black, red, and gold. In addition to statues, maneki-neko can be found in the form of keychains, piggy banks, air fresheners, pots, and numerous other media. Maneki-neko are sometimes referred to simply as “lucky cats”.

Cat

Are you independent, or are you dependent on others due to emotional attachments? Do you consider yourself to be flexible? Do you take the time to observe situations before taking action?

Cat totem is an ally for you when you need to be more flexible in various life situations and find balance between your dependent and independent behavior. For over 5,000 years, cats have been domesticated companions to humans in many civilizations. Cat is quite coordinated and has considerable elasticity. When Cat shows up in your life, you are being called to stop and observe yourself in order to determine how you can become more flexible.

Just as a cat stalks its prey, “stalk” your own emotions, actions, and reactions in order to uncover the source of repetitive patterns in your relationships, career, or any aspect of your life with gentleness and ease. The resulting realizations most often provide you with self-understanding and self-confidence. Cats are naturally intuitive. There are many people, including reputable researchers, who believe that cats have psychic abilities. Having Cat as a totem and a companion in life improves your intuition through resonance.

Cats can be nurturing and comforting as well as independent. Although they appear emotionally detached, they are loving companions. Cat’s purr is a healing vibration. Most often, a cat’s purr indicates contentment, although they may purr when they are nervous or sick. It has been said that when a cat purrs while on their human companion’s lap, the sound and vibration contribute to the reduction in the time it takes to heal from broken bones, muscular challenges, and even infections.

Affirmation

It is easy for me to comfort myself and feel nurtured. I am calm. I am detached from drama. I am tranquil. My intuition is strong. It is easy for me to feel, sense, or know how others feel. I can tell the difference between my feelings and the feelings of others. I am flexible. I observe myself and all that is going on around me.

Message from Cat

Be alert, and observe your surroundings using all your senses. Take time to stretch and maintain your physical flexibility. Relax and curl up with your loved ones. Let yourself lie down and take a nap when you feel the need to rest. Use your voice to comfort yourself and others through song or humming. The sound and breath of your hum will slow your breathing and soothe you.
