ThoughtCo: Divination with Stones

Lithomancy is the practice of performing divination by reading stones. In some cultures, the casting of stones was believed to be fairly common–a bit like checking one’s daily horoscope in the morning paper. However, because our ancient ancestors didn’t leave us a lot of information about how to read the stones, many of the specific aspects of the practice have been lost forever.

Today’s Magickal Creature: Dragons

As one of the most popular mythological creatures in modern day, the dragon is no mystery. It does, however, have a lengthy history that many people are unaware of. When most people envision a dragon, they think of a large reptile-like creature with enormous wings that breathes fire and attacks castles. However, like all creatures of ancient lore, the dragon had more humble beginnings.

Patheos-Pagan: Run Rabbit Run – An Augury For One

Augury – the practice of reading signs and omens in natural phenomena1 – is at best an inexact science. Our modern attempts to practice it are hampered by our disconnection from nature. People regularly ask me “I saw a crow – could the Morrigan be calling me?”

WHAT IF… ?

“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”
— Eden Phillpotts

What if you were to pretend that you were healthy, wealthy and wise? What if you were to decide to be happy, no matter what else was happening?

Take the power of ‘what if…’ seriously, and you will grasp the power to create a world of your own design. Everything, EVERYTHING begins in the imagination. Put it to work constructively for you.

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.”
— William James

“Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Paradoxes

“God hides things by putting them near us.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Isn’t this so true? It’s one of those “forest for the trees” examples. There is joy and love and beauty all around us, and right inside of us… and yet where do we look? Many of the great spiritual teachers answer every question they are asked with the same statement: “Look within.” They might say it in hundreds of different ways, but the meaning is the same. It’s so simple, and yet so complex- what a paradox!

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Strength

Anger could raise its ugly little head today, but you have things under control. Don’t engage, if possible, and tactfully deflect the worst of whatever misunderstanding caused the outbreak. If it’s repressed anger, there may never be any loud or angry words. You can smooth any ruffled feathers simply by standing up and not being intimidated or rushed into any action or opinion. Be at your best today.

Take Time: Cat’s Angel Message for August 21, 2019

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!


Take time to play! Ask for what you want. Laugh. Live loudly. Be avid. Learn a new thing. Be Yourself! – Mary Anne Radmacher


821:  What do you want from your life? That is the question that the Universe is asking us today. The truth is that we are the Captain of our own ship and the Universe and our helpers are there to help us navigate and to assist in the journey. Remember that you are a powerful creator and it’s within your power to create the life you want. Focus on the things that are important and truly matter. It’s ok to let something go or just let it be.  If you look at your life and your path and feel like you are missing something take a step back. Maybe it’s time to sail out of your comfort zone and take action. Surround yourself with good vibes and invite new people and opportunities. ” Expect success and focus on what truly matters to you.


Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews and changes. He can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently as well as the areas that need attention and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain a clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement. 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 set aside things we have no control over and to help navigate the winds of change, the Yoruban Goddess Oya tells us ” My child, change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Galena helps us to stay grounded and centered. It helps to open the mind as it dissolves self-limiting thoughts from our past that can get in our way during the manifestation process.
  • Yellow Jasper helps provide clarity on mental and emotional levels. It also starts us in a positive direction while helping us to find realistic and workable solutions that keep us moving toward our goals.
  • Larimar which helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Aug. 21, 2019 “Sparkle On”

Happy Wednesday,

Let me tell you a secret! You are beautiful. Yes… I’m talking to you! It’s not the physical appearance that makes one beautiful. True beauty is within and by allowing ourselves to “be ourselves” we show our beauty and light to the world. Don’t aspire to be what someone else wants you to be. Aspire to be yourself!

Today’s Deity: Greek Goddess Bia

Bia was a Titan goddess in Greek mythology, daughter of the Titans Pallas and Styx, and had three siblings; Nike, Kratos, and Zelus. Bia was the personification of force. During the Titanomachy, the war between the Titans and the Olympians out of which the latter emerged victorious, Bia and her siblings sided with Zeus, along with Styx. To honour them, Zeus made the four siblings his constant companions.

Patheos-Pagan: The Forgetting of Our Magick

Yesterday, I attended a council meeting of our local Goddess temple. I know, how lucky am I to live in a place that has a Goddess temple?! Towards the end of the meeting, we discussed the state of the world at large and how helpless we can feel at times. One person remembered a hopeless time in their lives when all was bleak and then she remembered who she was and what she could do.

Inner Journey:

NEED HELP?

“Asking for help doesn’t mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty and intelligence.”
— Anne Wilson Schaef

The path of healing begins with awareness that things can be different. We must be willing to open to the potential, the possibility for change.

We also need to acknowledge that we are not in this experience alone, without support. The divine power of love is here for us if we are willing to open to receive it. Sincerely ask for help and loving support will manifest in both mundane and magical ways.

“The healthy, the strong individual, is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he has an abscess on his knee or in his soul.”
— Rona Barrett

Paradoxes

“All cases are unique, and very similar to others.”

-T.S. Eliot (1888-1965)

I find this to be true every day of my life. We’re each living our individual lives, going about our business, and our families- and when we take time to connect with each other, we find out that so often we’re going through the same things! We can relate to each other, because in a way we’re living out the same scenarios. It helps to share our experiences, rather than to feel that we’re in it alone.

Things Can Happen: Cat’s Angel Message for August 20, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Things Can Happen: Cat’s Angel Message for August 20, 2019

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!


Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind. David G. Allen 


820: Today the angels are delivering a message from the Divine Source (Goddess/God, Creator, Spirit). “The universe holds a bountiful supply for everyone and all you need is within your grasp. Have faith in yourself and in me. My angels are here to help you, so do not be afraid to make requests of them.” Remember that “divine right timing”  also comes into play here. When we make a request things are set into motion and sometimes we see quick results and sometimes we must wait. When our requests seem to be on hold it is because we are not quite ready for this specific request to be fulfilled. The Universe waits until all the pieces are in place before sending things our way. Behind the scenes, things are happening and the wheels are turning bringing you closer to your desired outcome.


Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears and 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 El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. 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 Hindu God Ganesh can help to remove obstacles from our path. He promotes the wisdom needed to navigate what life hands us so that abundance can find us. Ganesh teaches us that our barriers are quite often self-imposed. He tells us “Never be afraid to move forward or to let go of what no longer serves you or brings you joy. While doing this may seem difficult or even impossible your effort will produce beneficial cleansing and healing.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Amber which bestows a positive mental state and helps us find balance, patience, and aids in decision making. Use Amber to enhance your earth connection and to promote grounding. It is also a great healing stone (it’s actually tree resin) that helps to remove energetic impurities from the body.
  • 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.
  •  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.

ThoughtCo: Magical Banishing Spells

In many traditions of Paganism, banishing is done to get rid of negative or unwanted energy, or even people who may be causing problems in our lives. While some traditions frown upon banishing as manipulative magic, on the theory that it impacts the free will of another, if your tradition has no prohibitions against such things, then there’s no reason you can’t do a banishing spell.

Imagine if you could see the world through the eyes of a butterfly. What would you notice? In this beautifully woven piece, Sara Dykman explores the life cycle of the monarch through recounting her 10,201-mile bicycle journey from Mexico to Canada and back, intimately acquainting herself with newly hatched caterpillars and milkweed-nibbling monarchs. “Though people would gasp each time I told them what I was doing, it was the monarchs who deserved applause. I was merely a cyclist, with maps and grocery stores and a staggering amount of hospitality shown to me, giving scale to the magnitude of the monarchs’ greatness.” Read on to learn more about this nature enthusiast’s close encounters and the intricate beauty of the monarch’s migration

LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”
— Aldous Huxley

What was your peak experience of this past week? What was your most challenging experience?

Stepping back to review your week can offer many insights. Normally we can’t see the forest for the trees. Now back away and see the whole forest. Review your week. Now write a short summary — whatever comes to mind for you. If action is required, plan how you will accomplish it in the next week.

“Ask the experienced rather than the learned.”
— Arabic proverb

“Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.”
— Franklin P. Jones
