A Bountiful Moment:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Daily Thought

Create a life filled with memories that amaze yourself. You have the ability to create days filled with awesome wonder of “How did I do that?”. It�s just a matter of dreaming bigger than you are right now and knowing that you can do anything you set your mind to.

Daily Practice

Dream big today. Don�t let the thoughts of �if only� get in the way of what you think you are capable of achieving. Set your sights on the big picture to keep you moving in the direction that creates memories showing you the reality of how great you are.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: How I Found Paganism; From a Kitchen Witch

The question posed was how did you find paganism?
Well I guess to be honest it found me�and it was witchcraft in particular.

Being born on Samhain,  yep honestly my date of birth is 31st October, I grew up with a little bit of a witchy vibe.

Family and friends would actually buy me little witch things for my birthday as a bit of a Halloween joke. Although as I grew up Halloween in the UK wasn’t what it is now, there was no trick or treating or even decorating and pumpkins where I lived

Inner Journey

REMOVE THE FILTERS

“You got to look at things with the eye in your heart, not with the eye in your head.”
— Lame Deer, Medicine Man of the Oglala people

Whenever we’re thinking, our experience is being filtered through our minds. For example, when I say to myself, “What a beautiful sunset!” I am not fully experiencing the sunset because I am involved with the words in my mind.

Explore letting go of the thoughts, the words, and connecting directly with your experiences. Tune in to the silence and the sensations in your body. Be aware of the spaciousness this brings because this is truly living in the present moment.

Being present doesn’t mean that we have to abandon thinking entirely. That’s not feasible, of course. But we can experiment with what it’s like to stop thinking once in a while!

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius

A Note from the Universe

Tell me what advice would you give a child who came to you asking what their favorite color should be?

To follow their heart? That no color is right or wrong? That if they wanted to, they could always change their mind later, any number of times? That their happiness with their choice is all that matters? Not to give it too much importance? That they don’t have to decide at all? That you approve no matter what they choose?

Now, what if they protested because they had heard from friends that there was a special color assigned to them at birth; their soul-color. They felt that a numerology reading might shed some light on their confusion. They wanted confirmation of their choices through a zodiac chart, tea leaves, and a Ouija board. And they asked if hiring a coach, therapist, or guru would be a good idea.

Yep, this is what I hear every day, just not so much for colors…

Sorry to lay this on you. I’m just fishing around for some new answers to the bazillion questions I get each week about careers, loves, and destinies – which to me, from here, are kind of like… crayons.

Ewhhhh, nice magenta!

“I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.” -Woodrow Wilson

We don’t need to know everything. Isn’t that great? What a burden it would be to carry around all that information constantly. And yet everything we could ever need, or want, to know is available to us at any time. All we have to do is ask! We are here to help each other, we are our own greatest resource.

Full Storm Moon: March 1, 2018 

MarchFullMoon_zpsa0b74136[2]

Full Storm Moon: March 1, 2018 

4:51 pm PST/ 5:51 pm MST / 7:51 pm EST

If March comes in like a lion, it will go out
like a lamb.
If March comes in like a lamb, it will go out
like a lion.

-old weather saying


Our first Full Moon of March (yes we have 2 this month) will be the Storm Moon (medieval england). It was most likely named that probably due to the fact that March is known to have some major storms caused by earth changes brought about as spring approaches. The weather saying above is an old one and you have probably heard someone use at one time or another. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac ” Some skywatchers believe that there’s a heavenly connection. The constellation Leo, the lion, is rising in the east at the beginning of March, hence the “comes in like a lion,” while Aries, the ram, sets in the west at the end of March, and so “will go out like a lamb.” Other names for this moon are Fish Moon (colonial america), Sleepy Moon (china), Windy Moon (cherokee), Big Famine Moon (choctaw), When Eyes Are Sore From Bright Snow Moon (dakota), Moon of Winds (celtic), Palolo Worm Moon (new guinnea), Full Sap Moon ( for tapping the maple trees), Full Crow Moon (the northern indian tribes said that the cawing of the crows meant winter was ending), and the old settlers called it the Lenten Moon and considered it the last full moon of winter. The Storm Moon of March is the herald of Ostara, Spring and new beginnings. Winters snow will soon give way to spring rain. The first of the seasons new growth is already showing, the days are longer and the Sun is climbing higher in the sky. So too are we experiencing new beginnings and growth. The time has come to clean and prune away the old debris that keeps us from moving forward. This much needed inner spring cleaning provides us with a new outlook and helps us to bloom, even during difficult times. Magical workings, meditations and healing should focus on personal growth and rebirth during this moon. To enhance your energy try  wearing the colors of spring, greens, yellows or lavender and adorn yourself with aquamarine, bloodstone, quartz crystal or jade. Use the scents of honeysuckle and apple blossom to create springs essence of hope and vibrancy to your altar, home or workspace. Bright Blessings! Cat

Starting the Process: Cat’s Angel Message for February 28, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process. – Jim Rohn


228: As we close out the month of February we are reminded that it’s more than okay to allow yourself to receive the gifts and blessings that the Universe has to offer. Sometimes we get so caught up in giving to others that when it becomes our turn to receive we kind of freak out. ” Oh no, that okay!” or “I don’t deserve that!”  By turning away good things that are offered we lose our  balance and our energy becomes depleted.  However, when we allow ourselves to receive with grace and gratitude doors open up to an amazing flow of abundance and growth.  Allow yourself to receive today and allow this energy to come full circle.


Archangel Haniel shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude and Archangel Michael helps us to overcome feelings of unworthiness and replaces them with the confidence to accept good things and say thank you.. The Ascended Master Buddha promotes balance in all areas of life while teaching us that moderation is the key between giving and receiving.

Oue Sacred Stones for today are Fuchsite which teaches us about our true self worth and how to embrace it and Garnet which helps us to balance our energy, as it cleans and  re energizes our Chakras.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: February 28, 2018 “Strengthening Relationships”

Happy Wednesday ,

There is a lot to said about the way our ancestors lived. They obviously didn’t have the technology we enjoy today but they were closer to each other than we are now. The sense of community was strong and helping each other was normal and natural. Maybe  we no longer know what community really is. It seems to me that we only come together when tragedy strikes or something upsetting happens. Most never reach out to help unless there is something in it for them, people say “I have your back” and then throw you under the bus. Nice huh? Things are only as complicated as we make them, so why not make the choice to do good and help where we can and strengthen the ties of community.

Where Are You Going? : Cat’s Angel Message for February 27, 2018

Where Are You Going? : Cat’s Angel Message for February 27, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

 

Where are you going? Where does your path lead? You can never know the future, yet wandering aimlessly is unlikely to be the source of a fulfilling life. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


227:  Today the Universe is asking us to focus on our Life Path. Your Life Path is the most important number in your numerology chart. It is derived from your birth date and it reveals your direction and the lessons you need to learn in this lifetime. Each person’s life path is unique. While we may travel together at times there always comes a point when we branch off to blaze a new trail.  Our thoughts and focus guides us and helps us to navigate our chosen path. By setting our intentions to the highest level and expecting the best to happen good things come our way. The truth is that you are the only one who really knows whether the path you currently walk is the right one. As you follow your path be sure that you occasionally do a self review.


Ask yourself:

  • Am I where I want to be?
  • Does this resonate and bring me joy?
  •  Is there anything I need to change?

If it feels good and like where you are headed keep moving forward. But if something feels off don’t be afraid to make the necessary adjustments. Your path should always bring you joy. Interested in finding your Life Path number visit Life Path Numbers by Michael McClain: http://www.astrology-numerology.com/num-lifepath.html


Archangel Jeremiel guides us through releasing fear of the future. He is also the angel to call on life reviews and changes. He helps us to clearly see the life changes that we have missed and how learn from past mistakes and move on. The Egyptian Goddess Maat shows us the truth and motivations behind all situations. This helps us on our path by allowing us to navigate freely.


Our Sacred Stone  for today is the Life Path Crystal (a long, thin, clear Quartz Crystal with on or more completely smooth sides.) This crystal helps us to access our path and our direction and it promotes going with our natural flow and following our our bliss.


Bright blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Thought For The Day: February 27, 2018 “Communication”

Happy Tuesday ,

We communicate with people everyday in both verbal and non verbal ways and it’s important in our relationships with others and with ourselves. The thing I notice is that most people are too caught up in themselves and their own drama to communicate in a positive manner with others. Listening is part of good communication it shows that you value the person who is speaking. Remember that words have value even if you don’t agree with them.
