There’s A Mouse In My House and He’s Challenging My Mental Wellbeing

It’s Day eight of sharing space with the newest, albeit uninvited, member of my household—a mouse. Despite my attempts with a humane rat trap (thrice outsmarted, I might add), my little guest continues to elude capture and has encouraged me to contribute to Takealot’s annual turnover by purchasing a humane mouse-trap.

This tiny creature had a vision of a full belly, a warm bed and a safe playground to explore and wow, did he manifest and actualised this in abundance, and more!

In my attempts to catch him, I made sure to feed him only luxury pellets, kept his water topped up and covered the trap with a towel so he was cosy for the night. Yes, I did that and still, Mouse 3 : Petra 0

 (I’m hoping he’s a ‘he’, so he doesn’t have babies tucked away somewhere!)

Mousie’s journey, in my home, is a perfect metaphor for how we can align our vision with our environment and achieve the outcomes we desire, even if they seem as daunting as transforming a simple abode into a mansion of opportunity.

OKAY, WAIT! A rat just ran across the screen in ‘I’ll See You In My Dreams’ movie!

And then again in ‘Mother’s Day’ trailer…or at least Jennifer Anniston’s character called it a rat.

Then there was this sighting as I was about to leave the Randburg SPCA after collecting the humane rat trap.

(I definitely have to do a follow-up post about the spiritual symbolism of a Rat and how it’s related to everything)

And then a day or two later, while playing a ‘Spirit Animal’ game on TikTok, the Universe reminded me to pay attention.

This is crazy, right?

Signs are every where! If you’re willing to look and listen and be still, you’ll have the space to reflect and choose how you want to respond.

Curious about the Spiritual Symbolism of a Mouse – and this little Manifestor in particular, is? I’ll share some manifestation lessons from Mousie – original, I know.

Here goes…

Mice often represent attention to detail and the ability to navigate through challenging situations with skill and agility. They also indicate a need to be cautious or vigilant in one’s surroundings. Mice are keenly aware of their environments and are masters at detecting and avoiding danger, embodying fearlessness and courage in the face of adversity.

Can I just say, WOW! And ‘thank you Universe’ because this is exactly the guidance I require in what I’m dealing with currently.

This insight couldn’t be more timely as Mental Health Awareness Month reminds us of the importance of having agility to navigate challenges in our lives.

Join the Manifestation Journey

If a mouse can manifest a feast, and a home that will honour his life, by being clear and deliberate in his intentions, imagine what you can achieve with the right guidance and support.

I invite you to join me at the upcoming Vision & Manifestation Workshop on 8 and 15 May, 2024. Let’s embrace the mouse’s determination, focus on our goals, and manifest the life we desire.

If it’s something you want to explore – or ‘need to’ because you know that something needs to change – then I’d be honoured to guide you through your own journey of vision and manifestation.

I receive messages, of transformative shifts and major life breakthroughs, every week and it makes my heart and being dance with joy! Just today I received another message from a past workshop participant about how surprised she is that so much of what she got clear on, is manifesting.

But you’ve got to be clear, confident, intentional and focused to ‘achieve and receive’ that. That’s what my VISION and MANIFESTATION WORKSHOPS are designed to do.

To take inspired action towards prioritizing your mental wellbeing, reach out to me to book a one-to-one life-alignment coaching session or secure your seat for the 8th.

Wish Mousie and me luck!

Happy #WellBeingWednesday
