Today’s Message: Things Are Looking Up

127:  Today a window will open which gives us a boost in the manifestation department. The key to this window is in believe in yourself and in your abilities. As always the Universe and its helpers are here to assist you. Their message for today is:  “Do not be afraid of being challenged. These challenges may test your faith but will make you stronger and help you on your path. “ Take time to re-affirm your goals and needs and infuse them with positive intent. Remember to also pay attention to any repetitive thoughts/ideas that you have as well as any divine guidance that you receive. Keep in mind that even though the results may not be visible to you yet the wheels are turning and things are happening. As we continue to make space and replace negatives with positives we find ourselves on an energetic upswing.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Uriel can help us to overcome obstacles by showing us where the solutions are that will lead to our success. He provides us with the additional information that we need to make the most informed decisions we can. No problem is too great or too small for him to assist with. Uriel also helps us to gain spiritual understanding and creative insight. Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed or simply express gratitude for the blessings taking place in your life.

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 Egyptian goddess Bastet (Bast) is not only associated with cats both large and small she is also a goddess of protection and of things that bring pleasure to the senses. In her role as protector she tells us “Never be afraid to stand up for yourself or move in the direction you know is right. Remember the importance of setting boundaries. This helps you to take control of your life”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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.

 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 the emotions during times of change.

Tangerine Quartz which helps to increase our receptivity to Divine inspiration while it stimulates the mind and enhances overall creativity. It fills us with hope and joy as it restores our feelings of self worth.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Spirituality & Health: Fall and Winter: The Seasons of Divine Feminine Energy
by Julie Peters

Learn how to embrace Divine Feminine energy this autumn and winter as the days grow long and cold.
When the weather turns colder and darker in the Northern Hemisphere, we enter moon season. This is a time when many of us find ourselves experiencing a moon that rises earlier in the evening and stays up later in the mornings as more darkness descends on our day. It’s also a season of darkness, death, and spirit work. All these aspects are in alignment with Divine Feminine energy.

Inner Journey:

LOVE LIFE AND YOURSELF

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
— Lao Tzu

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.

We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

“It matters not Who you love, Where you love, Why you love, When you love, Or how you love, It matters only that you love.”
— John Lennon

“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”
— Frank Scully

Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.

Faith is the key that unlocks all doors. ~Cat

Today’s Message: Finding Your Vision

126: Our powers of faith and optimism not only help us emotionally and spiritually they can also help to increase our flow of abundance and prosperity. Today the Universe is gently reminding us to balance our thoughts and concerns about our material supply with faith and good vibes. Maintaining this balance is important so it’s a good time for a self-check. If you are tipping the scales in either direction make the necessary mental adjustments to ensure that the energy flow remains in your favor. (The key is in remembering that it’s NEED and not WANT that generates divine assistance.) If you find yourself lagging take some time to ground and center. Then reaffirm your goals and intentions, ask for divine help if needed and above all pay attention to the signs and messages that you receive. You are a Creator so find your vision and make things happen!

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 is our go-to guy when we feel “wobbly’. He teaches us that the key to happy living requires moderation and balance in all things. This includes the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find that inner peace is ours!

 The Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills so that we get the information we need without the unnecessary backwash. 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.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Agate. This humble stone is the perfect one 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 make the most of our life experiences.

Iron Pyrite has a warm, positive energy. It teaches us to have confidence in our skills and abilities so that we are able to realize our true potential by stimulating new ideas and knowledge of our own self worth. Pyrite also helps to balance instinct with innate intuition and overall creativity.

Pink Kunzite is a feel good stone that helps us to go with the flow. It brings feelings of peace as it connects us to universal love as it removes obstacles from our path and promotes communication on all levels.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Inner Journey:

PROCRASTINATION

“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.”
— Don Marquis

Most of us struggle with procrastination — the ‘I’ll do it later’ syndrome. If this is one of your key time wasters, take time to become more aware of your behaviour.

Identify what you are procrastinating.
Identify why you have not done these things. Seek out your deepest reason.
Is there a fear underlying your reason? There is for most people.
We typically procrastinate because of unclear goals, lack of information and/or skills, fear of moving into new territory, fear of failure or success, feeling overwhelmed, lack of time due to over-commitments, poor timing, and general disorganization.

“Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started.”
— David Allen

And, just for fun: “The best labor saving device is doing it tomorrow.”
— Source Unknown

Today’s Message: Allow Transformation

125: Initiating positive change in our lives enhances our ability to create something better for ourselves.. Remember that these changes are necessary if we are to grow to our full potential. Today the Universe is telling us that the time has come to acknowledge the changes that we have already initiated and to make any adjustments that will help ease the way. The number 5 relates to transformation on all levels and it’s important to continue to let go of what no longer serves to make room. Our spiritual helpers are here and are sending us messages and clues that relate to our path. Embrace your faith in yourself and the Universe and allow your transformation to happen!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 Archangel Uriel teaches us how to access our creative database. He reminds us that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to use a non-conventional approach. He  gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations.

The Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and  consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back he can teach you how to let it go or let it be so you can continue moving forward.

The Welsh Goddess Cerridwen uses her cauldron “Amen” to help provide us with knowledge, wisdom, personal rebirth and inspiration. remember that change brings us the transformation that we need. She reminds us “The opportunity for your own transformation lies before you. It provides you the chance to spread your wings and grow. Look into my sacred cauldron and see the vision of your path unfolding before you.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Tiger Iron. This stone , which is a combination of Jasper, Hematite and Tiger’s Eye, helps to promote change by opening space within and providing the energy to accomplish what’s needed by generating new and creative ways and ideas to make the changes easier

Black Tourmaline helps to clear away negative energy and offers protection. It also helps to stimulate both creativity and practicality. Both of which will help us to achieve our goals.

 Unakite. This green and pink stone helps us to see blocks that we have erected within ourselves and then provides valuable insights on removing them so that we can move forward. It helps us to appreciate and gain clarity from the present moment and works with both base and heart chakras.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

_____________________________

Today’s Message: Asking For What You Need

124:  Yesterday the Universe reminded us of the importance of making room. Remember, the key is to clear away what you no longer need in order to make room for new growth and blessings. (ventures, projects, relationships, opportunities etc.) Keep this month’s theme in mind and pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas as they will show you the way to success. It will also clarify the areas that need your immediate attention. Have faith in yourself and listen to your inner guidance as well. You know what’s best for you and only you can set those wheels in motion. Today the Universe is sending us a gentle reminder. If we need new ideas, a boost of courage or help to find our way, we just need to ask!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive life choices. He understands that it’s hard for us to let go of people and situations even though they are holding us back or causing us unintended stress, drama or harm. Jeremiel can help ease these transitions and reminds us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future.

 The Ascended Master, Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence.

Aine the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility  shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. She tells us  “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Desert Rose (Selenite). These beautiful stone “flowers” help to increase our understanding of our own personal value in the universal plan. It dissolves outdated self-imposed programming and helps us to replace it with new ideas and self perspective.

Moonstone, the stone of new beginnings, reminds us that all things are a part of the cycle of change  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.

Okenite helps clear away obstacles and teaches us the important lesson that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when we allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start

Clear the clutter and the cobwebs and make room for new blessings! ~Cat

_____________________________

Today’s Message: Let’s Make Some Room

123:  Today the Universe is sending us a very clear message regarding personal manifestation.. “In order to receive new blessings (opportunities, relationships, enlightenment etc.) you need to make room. You do this by simplifying your life and letting go of the things and people who are leeching away at your energy, time or resources. If something no longer brings you joy or is  not for your highest good it’s time to cut the cords.” The letting go process is necessary for our overall growth as well as helping to pave the way for the good things that the Universe is sending our direction. While this process can be difficult it’s definitely worthwhile. Once you start this process you will see and feel a major shift in your energy and you will feel more empowered.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

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 Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says:  ” Personal boundaries are important to your well being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self assurance to do what is in your best interest.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self-defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential. It helps to dissolve problems and insecurities that can arise when we are faced with new opportunities..

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 that will bring harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.

 Soft colored Lepidolite helps us by filtering away distractions and obsessive thinking so that we can focus on more important things. It soothes and heals stress and reminds us to just breathe.

Spirituality & Health: How to Strengthen Your Intuition Through the Lunar Cycle
by Mara Branscombe

Use these simple but powerful methods to attune yourself to the moon’s phases to develop stronger intuition.
Whether we are aware of it or not, we are all deeply connected to the moon’s 29.5-day cycle.

The human body is composed of approximately 60 percent water. Like the moon’s pull on the ocean tides, the moon similarly provides us with an ebb and flow of energy that can be observed if we take the time to notice it.

Inner Journey:

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 thefrequencies 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

Daily Tarot: The Devil
Some days you just want to be self-indulgent, and today is one of those days. Put those feelings on the back burner while at work or out in public. After the serious part of the day is over, the danger actually increases for you. Don’t overindulge and make yourself sick or regretful. Sometimes too much of a good thing is too much, and you want to start tomorrow feeling good.

Using Our Power: Cat’s Angel Message for December 2, 2022

Using Our Power: Cat’s Angel Message for December 2, 2022

 December’s Theme: It’s time to replace the old and outdated and welcome in new opportunities and blessings. This is the season to receive the good things the Unoverse has in store!

____________________________

Help yourself by embracing your innate power as a creator! You’ve totally got this! ~Cat

Today’s Message: Using Our Power

122: In your role as a creator, you are the determining factor in making things happen for yourself. Thoughts and our faith are part of our “Sacred Tools” and when combined together with our creative power our manifestation ability greatly increases. Today the Universe is reminding us to honor our power as a creator and to have faith in our own divine wisdom and magic. Remember to pay attention to the messages that you receive as this information helps us to create and draw new life choices and opportunities. Allow yourself to be open and confident and acknowledge your unlimited potential. Believe in your heart that the Universe is helping you by supporting the efforts you are making.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process.In turn this  shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes  blessings easier to receive.

 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 Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to find the answer to the question  “How shall I live my life?” She tells us that every moment gives us opportunities for growth. ” When you are filled with indecision you move away from yourself and your power as a creator. Indecision silences you ability to hear your own inner wisdom. If you need my help just ask and I will shower you with energy that will tip the scales in the direction of what you desire.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Sunny golden Citrine helps increase our self esteem and is a powerful healer of old outdated patterns, which allows us to manifest new things. This stone also attracts abundance, but keep in mind that abundance comes in many forms not just financial, so stay open to them all.

Mookite, a form of Jasper that comes in many creamy color combinations, promotes decision making and versatility. These things are important when we are faced with new experiences and find ourselves faced with the need to take action. It encourages us to be flexible during times of change and helps us to embrace new experiences with an open sense of adventure.

Smoky Quartz helps to neutralize negative energy and teaches us how to work through the fear of failure which can show up during times of change and transformation. 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.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

December Quotes

“In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan,

Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter,

Spirituality & Health: Lunar Medicine for the Masculine
An Excerpt from The Flowering Wand
by Sophie Strand

Explore how men can align themselves with lunar cycles to experience more connection with nature and the divine.


Masculinity is lunar. Gender is lunar. Sexuality is lunar. Landscape is lunar. Bodies, liquid in a flesh silhouette, are tides of lunacy, constantly shifting their internal shorelines. To be lunar means to change—to be full and ripe one night, and tired and reclusive another.

December Birthstone
The December birthstone is Blue Topaz.

December Birthstone : Blue Topaz

Birthstone Color: Blue
december birthstoneAs cool and inviting as a blue lake on a blistering summer day, December’s birthstone is derived from the Sanskrit word “tapas,” meaning fire. This is because Blue Topaz was considered by ancient civilizations to have cooling properties. Not only was it believed to cool boiling water when thrown into the pot, but to calm hot tempers as well! This gemstone was credited with many other healing powers, among them the ability to cure insanity, asthma, weak vision and insomnia. The Blue Topaz was even thought to have magical properties in its ability to make its wearer invisible in a threatening situation.

December Birth Flower: Narcissus
NOVEMBER 17, 2018 | BY FTD FRESH

The narcissus is the December birth flower and symbolizes good wishes, faithfulness and respect. The narcissus can often be confused with the daffodil, the birth flower for March, which is a type of narcissus. Although most narcissus flowers are spring flowers, there are several species that bloom in the winter, such as the paperwhite narcissus — making it appropriate as the birth flower for December.

Inner Journey:

TRYING TOO HARD?

“Thinking about interior peace destroys interior peace. The patient who constantly feels his pulse is not getting any better.”
— Hubert van Zeller

Are you trying too hard to be good, to be perfect, to be spiritual?

‘Trying too hard’ is an expression of fear. If you can replace the fear with faith that everything always serves our highest good, your confidence and peace of mind will serve your aspirations.

“So many people work so hard, to achieve, attain, accumulate and cherish their fortunes. How many of us blissfully fill our days and nights being the Divine expression we are? This is the meaning of life. It is to be.As a result, all of your creations are a natural outflow from the Divine within your being. This is the joy of life.”
— Barbara Rose

A Note from the Universe

To touch someone with kindness, is to change someone forever.

Heavy, huh? That’s nothing.

Because for everyone you touch, you also reach everyone they will ever know. And everyone they will ever know. And everyone they will ever know. And so, for the rest of all time, your kindness will be felt, in waves that will spread, long after you move on.

Muchas gracias,

The Universe

You might be set up to be the smart one and solve a problem or two for someone else. While it might be your idea of fun to perform and be clever, try to keep things simple, especially if this is a work-related issue. It will cost you little or no effort and win you a lot of admiration, and maybe some monetary reward later.
