Cat’s Morning Bits for February 20, 2018
Good Morning! Grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and start things off with “Today’s Inspirations”. I hope that you find something here that will make you feel good or help you on your path today.
Snow in the country—snow in the town,
Silently, silently sinking down;
Everywhere, everywhere fast-falling snow,
Dazzling the eyes with its crystalline glow!
Jennie E. Haight, Canadian poet
Mind Body Green: How Being In The Forest Actually Boosts Immunity
Our entire body is constantly communicating and acting in tandem with our surroundings. But how can something as simple as spending time outside possibly make us healthier? Let’s dive into the science.
Beliefnet: 7 Tips for Finding Your Passion
While I don’t feel like I’m remotely qualified to tell others how to live their lives by a long shot, I am the most qualified person to speak on my own life and share the things that I’ve found…
Spirituality & Health: Creative Moon: Writing Prompts for the Moon Cycles
I think of creativity as a flow an energy that lives in my body. When there’s resistance when thereï¿½s something I’m trying not to deal with or when I’m exhausted, the flow slows to a dribble. That usually means I need to take a time out to rest and process. Creation and generation are nourished by times of quiet and rest.
A Bountiful Moment:
Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.”
Malcolm S. Forbes
Work from a position of personal power. Do not look to something that is not in your grasp to get you to the next step of your journey. You have everything you need right in front of you. But if you continue to search for things that are not currently in your reach you will become defeated before you start. Maintain the fact that you are good enough just as you are and everything else will fall into place.
Keep your focus on your strengths today. Take a personal inventory. What comes easy to you? What makes you smile? Or what do you continue to do despite the challenge? Do not deflect this action by telling yourself you do not know what you are good at, or worse, that you are not good at anything. Accept your best self by applying your strengths to the situations you encounter. Bring your best self to your daily tasks so everyone and everything around you including yourself will benefit.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: The Benign Aspects of Saturn in the Dead of Winter
The Cold Ruler of the Winter
This time of year is ruled by images of death and rebirth, transformation and regeneration, the Holly King and Lord of the Wild Hunt are the dark aspects of the Witch’s God that are sovereign during the dark half of the year. Winter is connected to the end of the life cycle and thus is populated by images of crone goddesses and old father time bearing the sickle of Saturn; Underworld deities are at the height of their power as the verdant life force of the Earth has withdrawn itself into her dark depths
GETTING DOWN TO ESSENTIALS
“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”
— Lin Yutang
Do you feel a desire to simplify your life?
If you say ‘yes,’ then set an intention to reduce the demands, stimuli, interruptions and busyness in your life. We each have the power to do this – we simply have to begin to say ‘no’ to those activities that don’t directly serve what we want for our lives.
Everyone of this planet deserves to have some free time to think, relax and have fun. If you long for this, begin now to clear your plate and allow a new level of experience to happen in your life. Take charge. Eliminate time wasters. Make some decisions about what matters to you.
“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
— Hans Hofmann
A Note from the Universe
Oh, that’s easyt! You should have asked ages ago!
Let’s put it this way: To perform like a star, to steal the show, and to party with the “Gods”… take the stage, do the dance, and invite yourself.
Be the spark,

Business: Are you doing work you love?
“To business that we love we rise betime,
And go to it with delight.”
-Shakespeare, “Antony and Cleopatra”
It’s the best feeling to do work that we love. It doesn’t feel like “work” at all! Time flies. We feel fulfilled, and satisfied. When we love what we do, and we are helping people at the same time, that’s when we know we are in our dharma, or purpose in life.
The Five Most Powerful Crystals For Healing
Most Powerful Crystals: Healing and energy crystals are a key part of spiritual life. They hold within them powerful energies that can help us in a variety of circumstances and situations. We should not mine any more crystals out of Mother Earth, only use what is already out. Mother needs them more than us. Some crystals specialise in certain situations
