A Little Goes a Long Way: Cat’s Angel Message for August 9, 2020

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Everyone can use a positive boost now and then. If you can’t do anything else then offer encouragement. A little of that can go a long way! ~Cat


89:  Every day we receive support from Spirit, the angels, and from people in our lives. Today the Universe is telling us that it’s a good time to acknowledge those who love us and who are always there to listen or lend a hand when we need it. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone told someone else “Good job!” “Way to go!” or “Thank you for doing your best!”?  Simple things like these inspire growth, create connections, and make lives better. Share some of your optimistic energy today with others for a win-win situation. It’s important to remember though that not everyone is there to support you and it is up to you to gently cut cords with those who take pleasure in knocking you down. When we allow ourselves to receive this negative energy from others we are harmed, mentally, emotionally, and energetically. A good support system lifts you up and by surrounding yourself with loving and supportive people it draws more of the same back to you and helps you to support others in turn.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Michael is the go-to guy for protection. His clear, powerful energy acts as a shield that helps to buffer energies directed at us. He offers protection from those who would do us harm or cause pain, even those who think they “have our best interests at heart or simply can’t stay out of our business”. Simply ask him to block these lower energies.

 

The Ascended Master Serapis Bey brings us the necessary spiritual insight we need when dealing with negative people, feelings, or situations. By surrounding yourself with loving energy you can find the peace you need to deal with off-color moments. He teaches us that loving self-care allows us the choice of removing ourselves from negative people and situations.

 

The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, who embodies compassion and mercy says, “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self-love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart, and spirit. Be gentle on yourself. Joy comes from embracing the simple things which frees up the energy needed to assist the creation process and help others along the way.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Chalcedony brings mind, body, spirit, and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger, or self-doubt. It also promotes good feelings towards self and others.

 

Dioptase helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action.

 

Deep blue Lapis Lazuli helps to open the Third Eye Chakra (mind’s eye) and stimulates our personal power. It also harmonizes our energies on all levels as this balance and strengthens our knowledge of self. It also helps us to confront the truth of a situation and promotes acceptance of the lesson involved. It promotes clarity and helps us express our opinions in a positive manner and teaches us the value of being an active listener.

 


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

A Strong Foundation: Cat’s Angel Message for August 8, 2020

A Strong Foundation: Cat’s Angel Message for August 8, 2020

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


The small things add up! ~Cat


88: By living in and embracing the “Attitude of Gratitude” we effectively draw prosperity and abundance into our lives. Even if we can only find that “One Good Thing” in a situation we can use it to create a foundation that can be built upon. The key lies in acknowledging all of our blessings and expressing our feelings of gratitude to what we have and what is offered. Small things add up as they help us to draw more positives into our lives.  Remember that you must do the work to make things happen,  however by sitting back and waiting you’ll miss out.  Today the angels are sending us a big high five. Their message is “Embrace your gratitude and you will find that avenues will open and the gifts the universe will be sent your way!”


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of what we have outgrown as well as our limiting self-beliefs and fears all of which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want .

 

The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

 

The Hindu goddess Kali is a dark mother and goddess of death. Each time we let go of something that no longer serves us we are in truth embracing a “little death” and fear often accompanies the letting go process. One of Kali’s greatest lessons is through our worst fears lies the freedom we gain in conquering them. She says: “Dreams must be created with focus and intent. I will help you to embrace the courage and motivation that you need to see things through to a successful conclusion.”


Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 

While Garnet is best known as a stone of protection it can benefit the use of our natural talents as well. It helps us to overcome any resistance we may have in using our gifts and promotes self-confidence. Garnet removes what no longer serves and mental self-sabotage. It promotes balance and clears and re-energizes the chakras.

 

Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” it is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion by staying true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others. It helps us to live in the moment making it easier to snag the blessings given to us. It is also a soothing stone that calms emotions during times of change.

 

Orbicular or Ocean Jasper helps to increase our sense of responsibility and promotes patience. It provides the strength we need to calmly deal with life’s challenges and soothes the emotional stress that can happen when we become impatient for results.

NATURAL VIBRATIONS

“I sing the body electric.”
— Walt Whitman

The water that makes up so much of our bodies is like oceann water. The salt crystals in this water vibrate at ever-changing frequencies. Our hearts are the emotional centers of our bodies, and they put out frequencies that are 10 times the power of the frequencies of our brains.

When we are happy, we vibrate at a higher frequency than when we are angry or sad. Our emotions change the chemical composition of the water in our systems. That’s why happy tears taste different than tears of sadness.

Experiencing physical, emotional and mental stillness harmonizes the vibrational output of the body, heart and mind and we become stronger.

“The message we give our bodies — one of irritation or acceptance — is the message to which our bodies will answer.”
— Deb Shapiro

Get Ready! Cat’s Angel Message for August 7, 2020

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


It’s time to tune up your personal guidance system. Get ready to receive! ~Cat


87:  We all come equipped with a personal guidance system called intuition and every day we are faced with choices that we must make for our personal evolution.  When faced with these choices that will have an impact on your life ask yourself “Is this best for me right now?”  Your inner guidance system will always be the voice of reason and will not steer you wrong. The key to intuition is learning to recognize it as opposed to the voice of the Inner Child who can often get us into trouble. Today the angels are asking us to fire up our intuition and embrace the strength and courage to make the best possible choices for our current situations. They are also telling us that it’s time for a balance check in regards to giving and receiving. Make any necessary adjustments to avoid tipping the scales.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears as he guides us through issues of self-doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own.

 

The Ascended Master Jesus helps us with all areas of faith and teaches us that true miracles often come in small packages. He also provides a clear and direct line of communication to the Divine as well as teaching us how to open up to receive divine information.

 

The Greek goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills. She teaches us how to trust in ourselves and honor our own wisdom. By following our inner guidance system we are setting ourselves on the path of authenticity and personal truth. Allow yourself to be a “huntress” like Artemis and track down your inner power. She tells us, “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Azurite increases our ability to receive spiritual guidance and helps us to see through illusions so that we can see our path clearly. It helps to develop our intuitive skills as it expands the mind to promote clear thinking, understanding, and new perspectives.

 

Cavansite. This stone helps to guide us through major life changes as well as helping us learn from past experiences so that we don’t make the same mistakes/choices again. It also helps us to retain information that applies to spiritual growth. Cavansite helps to promote new ideas and can be used in conjunction with the Third Eye or brow chakra.

 
Moonstone, the stone of new beginnings. This beautiful, watery stone helps to navigate the cycles of change and calms our emotions. Gently encouraging creative thinking and creative problem solving as it brings our intuitive skills forward, promoting control and confidence so these skills become more familiar and easier to access. It also provides emotional healing by helping to stabilize the emotions and draw out old emotional patterns.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Thought For The Day: August 7, 2020 “A Dream”

Happy Friday,

We all have dreams. Some we share with others and some we keep to ourselves. The ones we keep to ourselves are often the ones that are the most difficult to obtain. In order to make them come true, we must be willing to take risks, to make changes, and above all create the personal evolution that makes us the person we want to be.

Daily Good: Kindness Is Everywhere

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.

– Amelia Earhart –

Kindness Is Everywhere

“Let me tell you about Don. He’s a retired DC firefighter, about to turn 89, living alone in his Maryland apartment. Father of six, grandfather to a tribe, he’s an Irishman, and darn proud of it. Around the start of the pandemic, he dropped me a line out of the blue, a reader offering his take on my novel ‘Beneath the Same Stars’. Since then, we’ve struck up a fairly regular email correspondence. We share stories about family escapades, our bad knees, the loved ones we’ve lost and are losing, the dear ones who take care of us and bring us joy. We banter about politics and public health and books and the best way to cook broccoli.” So begins this brief yet potent exploration by Phyllis Cole-Dai on the power of kindness. { read more }

How have you experienced kindness from another recently? How have you offered it to another?

Inner Journey:

THE PUSH & PULL OF RELATIONSHIPS

“It’s surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you’re not comfortable within yourself, you can’t be comfortable with others.”
— Sydney J. Harris

Relationships are such a challenge because life pulls us in opposite directions at the same time.

Our personality feels the need to be unique and special and so our focus lies on how we are different from others. Differences hold the potential to create conflict.

At the same time, our souls live through connection with others. We are challenged to rise above our personal preferences to discover how we and the other are the same.

Our overall need lies in balancing these two tendencies.

“The purpose of relationships is not happiness, but transformation.”
— Andrew Schneider

Interdependence
“All that is due to us will be paid, although not perhaps by those to whom we have lent.”

-Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, 1893
I guess you could say that what comes around, goes around, and why not in a good way? Think of it as some kind of karmic bank account that keeps track of our good deeds. We don’t have to keep score, the universe takes note! So we don’t have to think about it, we just have to take action, help out, do our best to make the world a better place for all of us. It all works out.

Don’t Let It Bother You: Cat’s Angel Message for August 6, 2020

Don’t Let It Bother You: Cat’s Angel Message for August 6, 2020

 

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Having gratitude for all things paves the way for the amazing and miraculous. ~Cat


 

86:  The “Attitude of Gratitude” carries over into today. If material concerns are bugging you then take a few minutes and give those worries to the angels. Do this as often as you need to (sometimes these things just keep knocking at the door) to bring you a little peace of mind. Fear and worry can block your energy so letting go of them or letting things just be can help clear the mind and help us balance. Remember to embrace gratitude on all levels and don’t cut yourself short by focusing on a single area. Free-flowing energy assists our manifestation process by attracting good things to us like a magnet. So focus on a positive outcome because good things are headed your way!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Sandalphon hears all requests and makes sure that they get to the Angel or Ascended Master who is best able to handle them. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!). Sandalphon also provides us with an emotional boost of courage. This is important as it helps us to make bold decisions that will help us on our path.

 

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 Hindu Goddess Kali is a dark mother and goddess of death. Each time we let go of something that no longer serves us we are in truth embracing a “little death” and fear often accompanies the letting go process. One of Kali’s greatest lessons is through our worst fears lies the freedom we gain in conquering them. She says: “Dreams must be created with focus and intent. I will help you to embrace the courage and motivation that you need to see things through to a successful conclusion.”


Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication, and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.
( Calcite can also be used to promote the balance of your chakras. When our chakras are in balance it’s easier to live the attitude of gratitude.)

 

Sodalite is a stone for the mind, it promotes clear and calm thinking. and activates intuition as it draws down information to the physical level. It dispels confusion and releases outdated thought patterns while creating space for new ideas. It also helps us to look for and find the truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself by boosting our confidence and self-esteem

 

Zincite helps to remove energy blocks which gets our life force flowing, which aids our manifestation process. It also restores our energy when it becomes depleted by giving away too much of ourselves to others.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Thought For The Day: August 6, 2020 “It’s a Feeling”

Happy Thursday,

Many people are under the misconception that home is a place. The truth is that we will live in many places during our lifetime and not all will feel like home. The feeling of “home” can be a place, a building,  or a person. It is the feeling of safety, love, peace, or comfort. The feelings fill our hearts and make us feel whole. Home is where the heart is!

MBG: The Not-So-Obvious Sign You May Be Facing Mental Burnout, From A Reiki Master

Burnout can be tricky: Not only can it manifest in a multitude of ways, both physical and mental, but it can be difficult to identify burnout before it becomes severe. It can be rather frustrating; after all, the key to managing burnout is to prevent the onset in the first place—aka, to combat the stress before it becomes debilitating.

Patheos-Pagan: The Greatest Offering To A Deity
For those who work with deities; in my opinion and experience food, libations, candles, and incense smoke are not the most powerful offerings you can give to a deity. The most powerful offerings you can make to a deity are acts that change the world for the better in their name.

Interdependence
“There’s a thread that binds all of us together, pull on one end of the thread, the strain is felt all down the line.”

-Rosamond Marshall, 1943

 
We have an inherent obligation to help out. When someone is in pain, that hurt affects more than just that one person. By reaching out, by showing compassion, by doing whatever we can to ease the burden, we make it better for all of us. Love lifts, love heals, love lightens. Whether it’s right here at home, or across the world, there are so many opportunities to make a difference.

-Lissa Coffey

Seeing It All: Cat’s Angel Message for August 5, 2020

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Don’t miss out on all life offers by navigating it with tunnel vision. Afterall you would go on vacation and just sit in your hotel room, would you? ~Cat


 

85:  The “attitude of gratitude” is important when working to increase our flow of abundance. By abundance I mean on all levels, not just financial gain. However, we must also be open to both giving and receiving. By tipping the scales in either direction “we lose out and miss out”. The balance between giving and receiving combined with the attitude of gratitude creates energy. It flows out gathering things along the way and sends good things back to us, including prosperity and abundance (on all levels). Today the angels are asking us to take some time to acknowledge the good things that happen (Remember, there is always at least one good thing) The keywords for today are creative thinking and perspective. Being grateful opens a whole new realm of possibilities to explore!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self-beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want. He says ” Expand your mind and you will manifest prosperity and abundance on all levels.”

 

The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

 

The Hindu Goddess White Tara embodies the beauty of Divine love and shows us the path to strengthening or restoring our faith. 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.” Tara’s name means “star”, and like a star, she helps to guide us along our path and through life.


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop.

 

Carnelian is used for motivation and increased creativity. It teaches us to trust in ourselves and helps us find creative solutions to current issues as it boosts self-esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices which enhance our ability to draw new forms of prosperity and abundance.

 

Tree Agate (Dendritic) to strengthen your connection to the plant kingdom and help you to enjoy each moment. It is also known as the stone of plentitude and promotes abundance while showing us the “wealth” we already have.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat
