Feline Dreamers is a business based on the thoughts and inspirations of Starcat and BlackLion. We’re creating a framework for exploring personal spirituality. We offer writings, guided meditations, and artwork focused on living a creative, joyful, and meaningful life. You can visit our Shoppe, Inspiration, and Listen pages to check out what’s available. For a deeper experience, our kits and coaching services are intended to help you connect with your true spiritual nature and release old blockages. We also do speaking engagements and workshops at conferences and play music, drums and spin fire in a New England-based performance troupe.
We came up with the name Feline Dreamers because we connect strongly with feline energy. To us, cats embody independence, freedom, joy, playfulness, and wisdom. Our dreams, the playground of the mind, provide us with space to be creative and interact more freely with our inner beings. We are also dreamers in the sense of wishing to affect the world in magnificent ways.
We look to the positive and wish to share our passion for life with everyone who is interested. We see the Divine in everything. Faeries, known by many names, are present in all cultures and traditions. We wish to help unite the human and fae realms in order to inspire creativity, connection with nature, and union with the unseen worlds.
Here at Feline Dreamers, we see spirituality as unique to each individual. We feel that each person chooses what they believe. We offer our help to those who seek to discover more about their personal journey. Our writings and teachings are a distillation of our own life experiences, intuitions, explorations, and study. We draw from many sources to create our unique philosophy and approach. Anyone can use the tools we offer, regardless of their religious or spiritual practices.
May our offerings and wares help light the way for you as you walk your path!
Nikki Starcat Shields is a writer, licensed priestess, practical mystic, and fae scholar of the mysteries. She loves to share ways she strives to live her personal spirituality, rooted in reverence and joy, even in the midst of a full, busy modern life. Starcat has been an avid reader since birth, which helped her navigate life despite her highly sensitive Virgo nature. Never having been part of any organized religion, Starcat grew up immersed in the world of Mother Nature and the life of the imagination. She has been an actively practicing Pagan for more than 20 years, studying Buddhism and Eastern philosophy, yoga, Earth-based religions, Tarot, quantum metaphysics, and Reiki healing.
Starcat’s passions include creativity, daily spiritual practice, books, expanding her self-love, unschooling, dancing, drumming, and dreaming. She is a hippie-geek hybrid who loves The Grateful Dead and playing Dungeons & Dragons. She believes in creative freedom for all beings, loves diversity, and is always learning. She is Pagan, feminist, vegetarian, and polyamorous, but doesn’t proselytize.
As you can probably tell from her name, Starcat adores cats of all stripes. She loves to swim and is one-quarter mermaid. She is constantly changing. Most of her writings are focused on personal spirituality, but she has recently begun dipping her toes into the waters of fiction writing. Starcat walks her spiritual path in Maine and other faerie-approved lands. She can also be found blogging at Starcat’s Corner.
