In Feng Shui as in a lot of shamanic traditions and cultures, it is important to create a sacred space. You can create a sacred space, for example, by making an altar to honor your ancestors or a specific altar in your meditation room or area.
But what about creating a sacred space for our pet(s)?
Cats in particular are extremely sensitive to the energies given off by different objects and the energies generated by different configurations of objects. They respond very well to the creation of beautiful, harmonious settings placed at their level. Placing small container plants close to the floor along with mirrors and sacred objects makes them very happy. They respond immediately to this kind of decorating in their behalf and therefore spend far less time of top of furniture. You can create an altar for your cat decorated with fresh flowers (non poisonous), shells, rocks and a small statue or image of St Francis, patron of animals.
You can also place pictures of your pet or previous pets in the health and family areas: it honors them and brings health and harmony in your family. In Feng Shui, the family area of a room is located in the middle of the left side from the entrance door. The health area is located in the middle of the room. If you have a piece of furniture there such as a coffee table, you can place your pictures on it.
