Spirit Library: Forging or Forcing

Blessed Being, you have reached a culmination point, a midpoint. The two seem so opposite, and yet they are similar. A cycle within a cycle.

Here you teeter on the point, a moment of rest as equilibrium is reached. How high have you traveled? What do you see from your broad vista?

Daily Good: Mary Oliver: Poet of Awe

Mary Oliver was in a class by herself. Distinguished with a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award, she was viewed with suspicion by literary critics for her status as a kind of rock star poet. For those of us who read her like a daily liturgy, her name is synonymous with other such essential words: mystery, wild, awe, terror, devotion, gratitude, grace. All of them come alive in her simple poems, that seem to rise from the crossroad of nature and spirituality, brimming with good questions. Fabiana Fondevila begins her process of saying goodbye in this essay full of beautiful snippets from the poet who helped so many of us find our way home to devotion and prayer through wonder and awe.

Elephant Journal: I’m Tired of Always Having to be Strong.

I’m tired, but even that is too casual, too shallow of a description for the weariness that lies in my bones.
I’m exhausted from being strong, from acting like I have it all together, and from being everything to everyone.

MNN: Young hosta shoots are edible. Who knew?

Add hostas to the list of plants you may have your yard that serve double duty as both edible and ornamental. The entire plant can be eaten — from the young shoots that emerge from the ground in early spring to the flowers that bloom in mid-late summer — but it’s most common to eat the shoots. The shoots can be sliced up and eaten raw in salads, or they can be cooked and prepared in a number of ways.

EarthSky News: Is Sirius the most luminous star?

Tonight – March 24, 2019 – look outside, and you can’t miss Sirius, the brightest star in the nighttime sky. Is Sirius the most luminous star? No. To astronomers, the word luminous refers to a star’s intrinsic brightness. 

Sirius, in the constellation Canis Major (the Greater Dog), looks extraordinarily bright in Earth’s sky. It’s our sky’s brightest star. But its brightness stems primarily from the fact that it’s only 8.6 light-years away.

Patheos-Pagan: Exploring Daily Practice

A few years ago I started going to the gym on a regular basis. I would listen to music on my headphones (earbuds, whatever) and walk on the treadmill while my daughter was in karate class. I’ve never been an athletic person and running only happens if I’m being chased, but there was an unexpected side effect from my little workout routine.

Inner Journey: 

DO YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF?

“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
— Orison Swett Marden

What do you believe about yourself?

If you are experiencing a lack of something in your life, chances are that you hold a belief in your subconscious that says you aren’t worthy of having that quality. Write in your journal the answer to these questions for yourself:
• Where are you not good enough, not worthy enough?
• How willing are you to receive?

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
— e. e. cummings

Transformation

“The sacred call is transformative. It is an invitation to our souls, a mysterious voice reverberating within, a tug on our hearts that can neither be ignored nor denied. It contains, by definition, the purest message and promise of essential freedom. It touches us at the center of our awareness. When such a call occurs and we hear it – really hear it – our shift to higher consciousness is assured.”

-David A. Cooper, 1994

In this passage, David Cooper writes about the shofar, the ram’s horn sounded in synagogue services during the Ten Days of Penitence. But there are a lot of different ways that ‘the sacred call’ may be expressed. The fact that we are pursuing our spiritual growth, that we are allowing ourselves to be more of who we really are, shows that we have heard that call! We know that life has meaning, and we are transforming our own lives to reflect that.

We Change: Cat’s Angel Message for March 25, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


Goes the song, “we change, we change.” But the music is still mine. – Mary Anne Radmacher


325:  Change is an important part of life. It can happen gradually or drop in out of the blue. To promote our own growth we need to be willing to embrace  those changes no matter how or when they happen. By fighting these changes we find ourselves stuck emotionally, mentally and spiritually. However, when we allow change to happen it invites new things and people into our lives. This bring new growth and opportunities that will help us as we create our path. If the proverbial winds of change are blowing through your life the Angels and Ascended Masters are sending you this message: ” These changes are for the best even though some may be difficult to accept or seem scary. We are here to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe and cared for during this time. We are surrounding you with protective, peaceful energy and are helping to take away any pain, fear or negativity that you may be experiencing.”


Change comes in many forms and we have some powerful helpers on our side. Archangel Azrael not only helps comfort the dying and help them to cross over, he also helps the grieving to cope with the changes and feelings that losing a loved one creates. Archangel Jeremiel helps us in all areas of life changes, while Archangel Michael surrounds us with protection. The Celtic Goddess Cordelia also assists with life changes and helps us to see, feel and find joy in the new process and The Ascended Master El Morya helps to stop negative thought patterns and the energy they generate. He teaches us how to stay centered and focused on our commitment to create a better life for ourselves.


Sacred Stones that help with change are Smokey Quartz which helps keep our perspective grounded while it removes fear of change and promotes awareness of your dreams and goals. Iolite gently eases the pain that change can bring and helps us to live in the moment and Crocoite helps ease the bigger shifts of change like death or divorce by soothing the emotions and helping us to cope.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: March 25, 2019 “Just Look”

Happy Monday,

Spring brings new beginnings and new growth, which is evident in both nature and within ourselves. Today allow yourself to feel the rhythm of  your own new growth. Look within and dig deep. Remove the old, the obsolete, and the things you have outgrown. Beneath these things lie the growth of new attitudes, habits and blessings not yet imagined. What new things will YOU find today?

The Metamorphoses of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for March 24, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

 

The Metamorphoses of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for March 24, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


The more a man can forget, the greater the number of metamorphoses which his life can undergo, the more he can remember, the more divine his life becomes. – Soren Kierkegaard


324:  The more we work with the angels and the ascended masters the stronger our connection becomes. These divine helpers send us messages every day and it’s our job to be open to receiving them. Our own intuition works the same way, the more we listen to it the greater our faith and  self confidence becomes. Today we are being asked to be open to communication on all levels. Remember that these divine messages come in many forms (numbers, signs, items, verbal clues or even a strong intuitive pull).  If you’re not sure of a message ask for clarification. Never be afraid of the message or an answer, and even if it’s not what you wanted to hear at the current time. If you receive a message that doesn’t seem to fit with your current situation set it aside as it will be useful to you later on. Taking time to meditate can help as well. This promotes a stronger connection between you and the divine. This also helps us to pinpoint the things that truly matter to us as we navigate our path.


Archangel Jeremiel teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. 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 let it go and continue forward. And the Hindu goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following. The humble 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 the most of our life experiences. And Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst”. This is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion. It helps you stay true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others.

Dream, Learn, Do, Become: Cat’s Angel Message for March 23, 2019

Dream, Learn, Do, Become: Cat’s Angel Message for March 23, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. – John Quincy Adams


323:  Contrary to popular belief we do not necessarily need to be a “cheerleader” to inspire others. The dictionary describes inspire as ” to fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative”. While we sometimes need to open the door and let our inner cheerleader out more often than not the quiet approach is just as effective. Quietly inspiring others is an art form of great value. Doing things (even small things) that bring joy or peace to others, leading by positive example or even simply offering assistance are all good ways to inspire others. They in turn will do the same or similar for someone else. By simply being cheerful, helpful and positive we share our light with others. Today the ascended masters want to thank us for doing our part and quietly inspiring those around us!


Archangel Zadkiel teaches us that true compassion and healing lies in our ability to to forgive ourselves and others. This is especially helpful when we endeavor to lead by example. It is through forgiveness that we gain insight of what assistance will be beneficial to self and others. 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 the Egyptian goddess Isis teaches us the importance of taking one step at a time, this lesson is a good one to pass on to others. She says, “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inward journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!


Our Sacred Stones for today include: Peridot which helps to sharpen the mind and enhance self confidence. It can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward and  Turquoise promotes creative expression which allows to see the beauty in everything while strengthening our communication process and tempering our words with wisdom.

Elephant Journal: Seven Simple Tips to Clear Out Bad Energy.

When I was moving into my new house a few years ago, I was working closely with a spiritual teacher at the time.
We used to talk frequently about energy and how to keep it at a high frequency.

As an empath, I feel other people’s energy deeply. So keeping my own energy vibrating highly is incredibly important to me.

EarthSky News: Westward shift of Orion and all the stars

We always get this question at this time of year:
Orion seems to have moved and turned considerably in the last two weeks. Will Orion disappear before summer?
The answer is yes, it’ll soon disappear into the sun’s glare. And – although you might notice it more easily with this particularly bright and noticeable constellation – the fact is that, like Orion, all the stars and constellations shift westward as the seasons pass.

Patheos-Pagan: Messages from Spirits of the Land

A few weeks ago I noticed something sparkling from the back yard. When I went to investigate I discovered a blue marble sitting in the very center of my back patio. I assumed it was a message from the Fae, but I’m also a healthy skeptic, so I waited. The next day, I found a hazelnut shell in the exact same place. The next day a whole peanut. The next day half of a walnut shell. These were clearly all messages from the Spirits of the Land

Inner Journey:

REFLECTIONS ON EFFORT

The anxious student asked the Zen master how long to enlightenment. The Zen Master answered a long time, at least 10 years. The student said, “Well I will work twice as hard.” The Zen master said, “Then it will take 20 years.” “No!” said the committed student, “I will work three times as hard.” “Well then,” said the Zen master, “it will take 30 years.”

Do you need to work at being spiritual? No. You already are spiritual. Do you need to work at being human? No. That’s just who you are.

The spiritual path doesn’t require us to get anything. It’s a process of opening to new dimensions of who we already are. It’s a process of awakening to our own truth. It’s a process of allowing ourselves to be authentic.

“It is not by your actions that you will be saved, but by your being.”
— Meister Eckhart

“People ask what must they become to be loving. The answer is ‘nothing.’ It is a process of letting go of what you thought you had become and allowing your true nature to float to the surface naturally.”
— Stephen Levine

Compassion

“The dew of compassion is a tear.”

-George Gordon Noel Byron (1788-1824)

Compassion carries with it emotion. We feel it in our hearts. Compassion spurs us to action. It shows us the best of who we are, it allows us to move past our own issues and focus on the contribution we can make to our fellow human beings.

Whatever You Do: Cat’s Angel Message for March 22, 2019

Whatever You Do: Cat’s Angel Message for March 22, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


322: Learning to believe in yourself and trusting in your own intuition can be easy for some and difficult for others. However, both are essential as we navigate our path.  Too often we allow ourselves to be lead by what others think or say. By allowing this to happen we are not being our authentic selves and we are giving our power away to someone else. While it’s good to have people around us who care and want to help us the truth is that you are the only one who knows what’s best for you personally. Today the ascended masters are reminding us to stand strong in our beliefs, both in ourselves and in the divine source. Allow yourself to be open to receiving information from the world around you, and know in your heart that you are capable of guiding yourself in the right direction.


Archangel Raziel helps us to access and fine tune both our psychic and intuitive abilities so that we are better able to receive divine guidance. The Ascended Master Saint Germain teaches us that by staying optimistic we are able to draw good things to us and are able to better understand the guidance that we receive from the resources available. And the Egyptian goddess Hathor says, “Beautiful soul, you need no ones approval but your own Now look within and embrace your divine spark.  Indecision can be your enemy, whose goal is keep you distracted and from hearing the voice of your heart Remember that each moment gives you the opportunity to learn and grow. It is what you were made for!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include Pietersite which helps us to  access our intuition and create a link to a loving level of guidance. It helps to strengthen the will and increases our focus of where we really want life to take us.  Stilbite which assists in our manifestation of intuitive thought while helping us to put those thoughts into action and Rhodonite which helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
