Last week I mentioned something about psi-traveling in this blog post.
The ability of a cat to find its way home is called “psi-traveling.” Experts think cats either use the angle of the sunlight to find their way or that cats have magnetized cells in their brains that act as compasses.
Some of you were really interested in it, so I decided to go a bit deeper into that subject and see what I could find about psi-traveling.
When I googled for psi-traveling I found a few websites that talked about psi-trailing instead. It’s the same theory, but another different.
I’m sure most of you have heard stories about cats (and dogs) who have traveled millions of miles to make their way back home through harsh terrain. Expert think this is because of psi-trailing. Not all people believe that pets have a (psychic) ability to find their homes back. But documented stories prove otherwise. Even I can be skeptic at times, but it’s impossible for an animal to smell ‘home’ from that distance.
When such great distances are involved, it seems implausible that even with extraordinary senses of smell and hearing, pets can track down their owners in places they’ve never been. That begs the question of whether pets have a sixth sense or some kind of psychic connection to their owners. – Petcentric.com
This could mean that there is only a psychic connection between people, but also between people and their pets.
The man who came up with the term ‘psi trailing’ was Duke University Professor Dr. Joseph Rhine. He described how some pets are able to find their owner when they are left. This ‘sense’ helps a pet find his owner over a long distance, through places and territory he has never been or seen.
Psi trailing is a strong emotional connection between the pet and it’s owner, place or another pet. You may call it love or a bong, but it’s all about the relationship you have with your pet, to make him able to navigate back to you. Sadly, no one knows it’s a psychic connection, and it’s still not fully understood.
Because of a special rhythm some pets share with us or another animal, when separated by distance, the pet feels an imbalance. As they get closer to the person, pet or home, the imbalance begins to stabilize. – Linda Cole
Earth’s Magnetic Fields
Animals have an internal compass that is sensitive to the earth’s magnetic fields. A pet that is lost for a short distance can usually find his way back home, but his chances of finding home become smaller as the distance grows (more than 7.5 miles). Something called the ‘homing instinct‘ is an ability to detect direction using something other than the normal five senses a cat uses. If a pet is fitted with magnets, he loses his ability to find his way back. (wikipedia Earth’s Magnetic Field)
According to scientist Konrad Lorenz the wild side of the cats allow them to keep their talents, to see the world like their ancestors and wild family members do.
Cats see the surface covered with an energy net made by geomagnetic fields coming from the ground. Zoologists believe that frogs, lizards, dolphins and cats are capable or finding their way with the help of that net.
Scientists have made great progress recently to unveil the mystery of the cat world. The visual memory of cats is excellent but they use it only to find a way home at short distances, in the area where they live. – Impactlab.com
The homing instinct is the ability to find direction that is beyond our human five senses. There are two types of homing instinct:
- The ability of an animal, after being moved, stolen, or lost outside their established territory, to return to their home base.
- The ability of an animal to follow their owner, when their owner has moved away and left the animal behind, called “psi trailing.”
But how do cats feel the pattern of the Earth’s electromagnetic and magnetic fields?
Researchers have discovered tiny magnetic particles of metal on the ‘wrists’ of cats’ fore and back paws. These particles can only be seen through a scanning electronic microscope, but that’s not all: researchers from the Natural History Museum in Stockholm also discovered magnetic ‘bracelets’ on legs of cats and other animals that are able to find a way back home very easy. Microscopic magnets form bracelets in bones.
Rhine created four stipulations that had to be met to decide if psi trailing was used by a pet.
- Reliable witnesses.
- A way to make a positive identification (tattoo, tags, specific behavior or vocal sound, a limp, special markings, deformities, scars).
- Consistent and credible details.
- Other witnesses who could give additional evidence.
Of the documented cases Rhine studied, 54 were found to be credible. When it’s certain the other five senses could not have been used by the pet to find his way home, psi trailing may explain a pet’s incredible journey. – Linda Cole
Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist believes pets can connect telepathically with us, and that’s how they know when their owner is coming back home and wait at the door. Sheldrake thinks that morphic fields exists in all mammals. When the psychical link is broken by a long distance, it breaks the rhythms the pet feels and that may be what leads him back home.
A Harsh World
Sadly, not all pets with a strong bond with their owner or home survive long trips. It’s a difficult and harsh world for a lost pet. And the odds of finding his owner and home back thousands of miles away is small. Tho, some pets do find their way back home. The thing is to never lose hope.
