In the Norse pantheon, Asgard is the home of the gods, and it is the place where one could find Odin, the supreme deity of them all. Connected to his Germanic ancestor Woden or Wodan, Odin is the god of kings and the mentor of young heroes, to whom he often gave magical gifts.

Daily Good: Humanizing Aid with Dignity

A small but increasingly influential British NGO called Refugee Support aims to deliver what it calls “aid with dignity” by adding a sense of normality and respect to its food distribution efforts. Refugee Support co-founders Paul Hutchings and John Sloan met in 2015 in Calais’ notorious Jungle camp. They were both drawn to help alleviate the suffering of the thousands of migrants and refugees living in deplorable conditions while the French and British governments watched with indifference.”The idea of aid with dignity came from our experiences in Calais,” says Hutchings.

Inner Journey:

BE WILLING TO REPEAT

“Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.”
— Christina Baldwin

Sometimes we repeat the Inner Journey messages in the series. Please guard against saying, “I’ve seen this one — I don’t need to read it again.”

The truth is: we are always changing. Who you are now is different from who you were when you read the message the first time. The circumstances of your life have changed as well. As a result, you may be open to new perspectives this time around.

Our ego is prone to think it knows it all, but life always offers us fresh and new experiences.

“It all depends on how we look at things and not on how they are in themselves.”
— C.G. Jung

Intuitive Understanding: Cat’s Angel Message for October 13, 2019

Intuitive Understanding: Cat’s Angel Message for October 13, 2019

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages.  These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days. – Lao Tzu


1013:  Today’s number corresponds to our intuition. This fits in neatly with this month’s theme. As we learn to open ourselves to receive divine guidance and messages it’s only fair to point out that sometimes we are given information that we don’t understand. Sometimes this is information that we need now, while other times it’s meant to be stored away for future reference. So why would this happen? Well… this is the Universe’s way of giving you a heads up and helping you to prepare for the next step. Today we are being visited by the Ascended Masters. They are ready to help you clarify the information that you have received and aren’t sure of. If you are experiencing confusion over a received message ask them to help clarify the meaning and make room for new information by turning over any worries or concerns that you have that pertain to current issues.


Archangel Sandalphon makes sure that our prayers get to the angel or master best able to handle our requests. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!).

The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to stop fighting the things that we have no control over, which blocks our problem solving and creative flow. Things flow easier when we are not struggling against the “what if’s and maybes.

The Egyptian goddess Maat helps us to think clearly when we are confused or filled with indecision. She helps us to see the truth behind all situations, other people and in ourselves while promoting integrity and order. Maat also protects us against deceit and manipulation. She says, “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.” 


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Agate is perfect for grounding and balancing our energies. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to get the most from our life experiences.

Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making.

Golden Ray Calcite to boost your creative thinking and to eliminate patterns of self defeating thinking. This helps to promote new and innovative ways to solve problems and move things forward.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

October’s Full “Hunter’s” Moon 10-13-19

 

Oct Full Moon sm

October’s Full Hunter’s Moon

Date: October 13, 2019

Time: 2:07 pm PST/ 3:07 pm MST/ 5:07 pm  EDT
The Old Farmer’s Almanac calls October’s moon the Hunter’s Moon, where pagan almanacs call it the Blood Moon, both are correct. The reference of the Hunter’s Moon is very similar to the Harvest Moon as work or in this case hunting could be done into the evening hours due to the brightness of the moon itself. However, the name Blood Moon has nothing to do with hunting. Like Septembers Harvest Moon the debris in the earth’s atmosphere (like dust, smoke, etc.) cause the rising moon to appear reddish, thus the name Blood Moon. Other names for this moon are the Shedding Moon, Falling Leaf Moon, Hunter’s Moon, White Moon (china), Harvest Moon (Cherokee & Celtic), Blackberry Moon (Choctaw), Moon When Quilling & Beading Is Done (Dakota).

From the beginning of October until Samhain the veil between our world and the spirit world becomes thinner. The Blood Moon is the perfect time to begin decorating your altar for the upcoming Sabbat or creating an Ancestor Altar. Use autumn flowers and seed pods, Indian corn, pumpkins and gourds, pictures of departed loved ones, acorns and nuts, bones or apples and pomegranates to help set the tone. Divination is also at it’s best from now until Samhain as is contacting departed loved ones. Dreams are another thing to pay close attention to at this time. The information may become clearer and stronger than it does at other times of the year. This is also a time of spiritual growth. It is time to finish harvesting and take stock of our labors from the past year. Discard what no longer serves you to make room for the new ideas and thought forms that will begin germinating in the coming dark season.

To help bring the magic of this full moon into your day try wearing dark colors, blue, purple or black and ornamenting yourself with sacred stones like amethyst, obsidian or even tourmaline. The Hunter’s Moon is a powerful and magical time so use it wisely and enjoy the benefits.

Full Moon Blessings!

Cat

Sharing The Goodness Of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for October 12, 2019

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages.  These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


Be open to the goodness of life – even in the midst of apparent adversity. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


1012:  Over the past few days we have talked about being creative and creative thinking. The Creator (Spirit, Sacred Source) embodies the ultimate essence of creativity. Just look around and you will see that the hand of the Creator has touched everything, people, places, and nature. Everywhere you look there is inspiration. Today’s lesson in creativity involves peace and is a request to all of our “Peaceful Warriors” out there. The world is a troubled place right now and while we would all like to wave our magic wands and make it perfect we know that it’s not going happen. What we can do however is to continue to work on promoting peace closer to home on a smaller scale. The old adage “It starts one person at a time” is true. The angels are asking us to promote peace today and challenging us to promote it creatively…..become someone’s inspiration today! You never know whose life you will touch when you allow your Peaceful Warrior to lead the way.


Archangel Chamuel helps us in regards to relationships. This includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature. He helps us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution as we navigate the path of the “peaceful warrior”.

The Ascended Master El Morya supports all who give of themselves to help lift others. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen.

The Celtic goddess Aeracura shows us the way to expand and share our loving energy. She tells us, ” Playfulness and a carefree spirit are the heart of true abundance. By sharing of yourselves it creates an energy that spreads and grows.” 


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

White Topaz to help increase our connection to the Divine. This gemstone brings feelings of happiness and spiritual awareness.

Sugilite is a stone of spiritual love and awareness and promotes Divine interaction and communication. Sugilite also encourages positive thinking and teaches us to live our truth and to trust our intuition. This stone also brings purple ray energy to earth. It embodies spiritual love and wisdom and assists in opening the chakras.

Satin Spar Selenite makes it a great meditation stone. It opens the crown chakra to help us receive universal guidance as it calms the emotions and promotes inner peace.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

ThoughtCo:  Celebrating the Sacred Masculine

While many Pagan paths identify themselves as “goddess traditions,” there are just as many which honor the sacred masculine alongside the divine feminine. Rather than being goddess-centric, a tradition honoring the sacred masculine will put the god on an equal playing field with the goddess rather than identifying him as simply the divine consort.

Daily Good: The Understory: Life Beneath the Forest Floor

“The first time I heard anyone speak of the “wood wide web,” more than a decade ago now, I was trying not to cry. A beloved friend was dying too young and too quickly. I had gone to see him for what I took to be the last time. He was tired by pain and drugs. We sat together, talked. My friend was a woodsman. Trees grew through his life and thought. His grandfather’s surname was Wood, he lived in a timber-framed house that he had built himself, and he had planted thousands of trees by hand over the years. “I have sap in my veins,” he wrote once.” Excerpted from his recently published book, Underland: A Deep Time Journey, “The Understory” is an examination of the life beneath the forest floor. Encountering the depth and complexity of communication that happens underground, Robert Macfarlane returns to the entangled mutualism at the root of language. { read more }

Inner Journey: 

WHAT’S ON YOUR HOT LIST?

“The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want.”
— Ben Stein

A Hot List is basically a to-do list with one key difference: it only includes topics or tasks that really matter to you, those that genuinely affect your quality of life. You know — the ones you never get around to! The ones that will make your life your own!

Keep a prioritized Hot List handy to remind you to claim 5 to 15 minutes to focus on and write about what counts in your life. Even 5 minutes is better than nothing. Start small and the momentum will build.

“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage — pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically — to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.”
— Stephen Covey

Persistence

“When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the time and the place the tide will turn.”

-Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1847

I remember hearing an interview that Jay Leno did once. He was asked what he attributed his success to, and he didn’t even have to think about the answer for a second. “I didn’t go away!” he said. He explained that there were many comedians who he felt were as good, or better than he was, and they all worked the same clubs, the same circuits, so they got to be friendly. But he said the difference between him and these other guys was that he never gave up. Many of the other guys got worn out, or burnt out, or just plain tired and quit. But Jay loved what he was doing so much that he couldn’t quit. He kept going after his dream, even through some pretty bleak times. And now look at him! He could quit anytime he wanted to, because he has so much success that he doesn’t need the money. But he keeps going, because he loves it. And that makes all the difference.

-Lissa Coffey

Everybody falls victim to a misjudgment or a faulty calculation sometimes, so don’t let that be a reason to grind to a halt and stop working on what matters to you. Sometimes deception is involved, but that does not free you from the obligation to try and set things right. It’s all about being responsible, and that’s what you want to be, anyway.

The Creative Life: Cat’s Angel Message for October 11, 2019

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages.  These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong. – Joseph Chilton Pearce


1011:  Every day we help create our own reality through our thoughts and beliefs. By focusing on the good things we ultimately draw more of the same towards us. (Just like a negative focus draws negative things.) Remember, negative thoughts are normal (we all have them) and they should never be dismissed out of hand. The key here is to acknowledge and examine them, look for the “WHY” you feel that way, and release it to Spirit. Today we are being asked to engage our creative side, do something fun or that brings you joy and to avoid addictive behaviors and toxic situations or people. Surround yourself positive vibes and allow the attitude of gratitude to fill your entire being!


Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. She reminds us that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns.

The Hindu goddess White Tara helps us to focus on and embrace Divine love, she says,  “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem solving process. It enables us to release things that are no longer relevant to our current path and dispels any guilt we may have when we leave things behind. It helps us to make the necessary changes and brings harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails

Smoky Quartz helps to neutralize negative energy as it helps us to work through the fear of failure which can show up during times of change. It also promotes clear insight and focus which helps us to leave behind the things that no longer serve us and make room for the blessings headed your way.

Turquoise helps us with creative problem solving and promotes both balance and intuition. It is aligned with the Throat Chakra and teaches us to speak up for ourselves and to speak our truth, which can be a valuable asset when working with gratitude and our ability to create. Turquoise helps to purify our energy and clears away negative energy. it aids our problem solving skills and protects us against self sabotaging thoughts and actions.
