What We Think, We Become: Cat’s Angel Message for April 22, 2018 

 April Theme:  We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


What we think, we become. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world. – The Buddha


 422:  Everyday we are made aware of bad things happening around us thanks to newspapers, social media and television. After being bombarded with this ongoing negativity it can be difficult to see the good in humanity. But the truth is that the GOOD is there and we just need to look more closely to find it. More and more of our fellow human beings are sharing positive stories and their light with the world. This is also true in our own lives.  Even though we sometimes get so caught up in the bad that we forget to see the good. Today the angels are urging us to trust in the Universe and in ourselves. They are asking us to have hope and to acknowledge the divine spirit that resides that resides within us. When we can embrace our own divine spirit we are able to see the divine in others, this enables us to find the good in humanity and promote hope and faith to those around us.

Archangel Chamuel is one of the seven core archangels and is considered one of the Powers who oversee the protection of the world. Call upon Chamuel if you are fearful of current world events and he will surround you with comfort and protection. The Chinese Ascended Master Kuan Ti also help to prevent hostile situations and warfare. Ask him to intervene and help bring about peaceful solutions and Ascended Master Buddha brings us inner peace and joy.


Our Sacred Stones for today are: Chrysoprase which helps to tune in to positive events and brings us hope. Blue Quartz helps us to understand our spiritual nature, it also inspires hope as it calms the mind. Hematite helps those in need of grounding and protection and Rose Quartz can be used to promote love of self and others.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Hope and Trust: Cat’s Angel Message for April 21, 2018 

 April Theme:  We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


 Confidence is that feeling by which the mind embarks in great and honorable courses with a sure hope and trust in itself. – Marcus Tullius Cicero


421:  Life’s path offers us many things. Some bring happiness and joy while others cause us pain and self doubt. Today, our angels are encouraging us to step up and be our own cheerleader. While it’s nice to have someone else pat us on the back and say “Good Job!” our self confidence benefits more from the Divine voice inside. That voice offers us nudges of encouragement as well as guidance. Listen to that voice and allow yourself to receive the mental hugs it has to offer. Remember to use your I AM and I CAN thinking to boost courage and confidence. Remember, you are a creator and you are worthy of accomplishing great things!


The Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us to think clearly when we are confused or filled with indecision. She helps us to see the truth behind all situations, other people and in ourselves while promoting integrity and order. Maat also protects us against deceit and manipulation. Archangel Uriel is there to assist us when we have problems that need  solving, especially those involving life lessons and the Ascended Master Saint Germain gives us the courage and direction we need to navigate life’s ups and downs.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Carnelian which increases our self esteem and teaches us to walk in our own power. Tourmalinated Quartz can relieve depression and fear, and aids in problem solving and Golden Ray Calcite  boosts our creativity and mental energy as it transforms self limiting beliefs into a positive self image.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: The One Practice That Taught Me To Shed Labels And Embrace Freedom

From the time we are young children, we place labels on ourselves to make sense of the world. We are either skinny or big-boned; cool or unpopular; a musician or an athlete.

And while these labels at times can be helpful to create some form of an identity, they are often extremely limiting. They place us into boxes�or out of them�and continue to follow us well into adulthood.

Patheos-Pagan: Lough Gur in a Driving Rain

Today you can buy an airline, rail, or bus ticket for travel at any time of the year. Winter snowstorms, Spring tornados, or Fall hurricanes may disrupt your plans, but the odds are good you’re going to make it just fine. It wasn’t always so.

The weather impacted our trip to Ireland and Wales, but most of it fell under the category of minor annoyances. Cold? Add another layer. Rain? Wool hats and hooded jackets work wonders. Rough seas have the ferries running late? Nap on the ship and catch up on sleep when you get home.

Inner Journey: There’s Hope!

“No matter how painful our early experiences were, our Essence cannot be harmed. Our Essence is waiting for the opportunity to reveal itself. In a very true sense, we are waiting for the opportunity to become ourselves. Our spirit is yearning to break free, to express itself …

“And yet, ironically, we always fear and resist opening to that which is most real in us. When we trust in the process and give ourselves over to it, however, our true nature comes forth. The result is real integrity, love, authenticity, creativity, understanding, guidance, joy, power, and serenity-all of the qualities we are forever demanding that personality supply.”
— Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

A Note from the Universe

You know what they’re going to do, don’t you?

And you do know what they’re going to say?

Yeah, once you consistently spend some time visualizing every day, doing the “all you can with what you’ve got” dance, and pushing yourself to live the life of your dreams to any degree that you now can, so that the floodgates fly open and you have your dream home, your dream work, and your dream friends.

They’re gonna give you that long, cold glance out of the corner of their eyes and say in a long, drawn-out voice, just loud enough for you to hear, “Must… be… nice…”

Just warning you,

The Universe

Perception

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” ~ -Buddha

Our perception tends to be that growth is hard, that it is a struggle, that it is work. But the truth is that we are only making it hard on ourselves. We cling to the past, try to control our futures. Are we willing to get out of our own way and just let it be? It could be so simple! Look at the flower. Learn from the flower. We can bloom just as easily.

Beliefnet: 5 First Ladies and Their Powerful Legacies

First Ladies are rarely as well-known as their presidential husbands. The history books often relegate them to a mere footnote, and many people mention the names of America�s First Ladies only as the answer to a trivia question. A number of people can name most of the presidents of the United States, but the women who were their supporters, advisers and confidants are often forgotten. These women helped their husbands handle the stressful years spent running the nation but are rarely recognized for their contributions, although quite a few First Ladies have put their positions of power to good use.

Undiscovered Yet Familiar Territory:  Cat’s Angel Message for April 20, 2018

Undiscovered Yet Familiar Territory:  Cat’s Angel Message for April 20, 2018 

 April Theme:  We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


 The only way to find that territory is trying to keep your mind constantly open. That’s the only way that you’re ever going to see the sort of signs of where to go. – Tom Jenkinson


420: Yesterday we talked about helping/healing ourselves and others, and today we delve a little deeper.  The biggest stumbling blocks are lack of confidence and faith in ourselves. These things can keep us from making the effort because we are afraid to fail. Today the Universe is reminding us that what we perceive as failure is actually progress. Each attempt or step (even baby steps) helps to keep us moving forward and teaches us something new. Our actions are inspiring to ourselves as well as others. Because we are showing that while we’re a work in progress we continue to persevere to make ourselves the best person we can be. If you try something and it doesn’t work out, look for the one thing that did (there is always at least one) and use that as building block and try again. by doing this we gain self confidence and courage. Step into your power and keep moving upward!


 Archangel Chamuel helps to build healthy relationships and Archangel Jophiel guides us through ugly situations and helps us find a new perspective on them. Archangel Michael provides direction and courage while boosting our self esteem. The Ascended Master  Vywamus gives us the encouragement we need to keep trying and helps to inspire us with new ways of doing things and Nike, the Greek goddess of victory and success help us to embrace the good things we have accomplished.


Today’s Sacred Stones are: Turquoise which helps promote creative problem solving, dispels negative energy and helps to restore our balance, and Smoky Quartz to help neutralize the fear of failure while it helps us stay grounded. it also teaches us how to let go of what no longer serves us.

Thought For The Day: April 20, 2018 “Spread love, Not hate”

Happy Friday,

We all know people whose life mission involves spreading hate and discontent where ever they go. They always have something nasty to say or drama to create. People like that feed off and fueled off of what they create.

However when we make a point of spreading love and lifting people up everyone comes away better off. I’m happy, you’re happy, they’re happy………. easy peasy!

How well are you taking care of yourself? Do you take time for yourself, or are there so many distractions in your life that you are last on the list of your busy schedule?
If we are not taking time for ourselves, it’s difficult for us to be giving love to someone else because we run out of energy. If there is nothing left for us, there sure isn’t going to be anything left for anyone else!

Spirituality & Health: 5 Ways to Sit Less to Save Your Brain

You’ve heard that sitting is the new smoking: bad for our hearts, lungs, and a leading cause of obesity. A new study from UCLA suggests that too much sitting is also bad for our brains, and that sedentary behavior is linked to changes in parts of the brain that are critical for memory. Sorry, what was I saying? I work from a computer all day, and as much as I want to move more, it’s really challenging. But if sitting is going to literally thin my brain, I’m incentivized! Here are five ways to sit less, so you can think ….

Inner Journey: Attachment

“The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of divine union. For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for until the cord be broken, the bird cannot fly.”
— Saint John of the Cross

“Attachment to spiritual things is… just as much an attachment as inordinate love of anything else.”
— Thomas Merton

A Note from the Universe

Nice job helping raise the sun this morning! The colors over Fiji were especially impressive. The warming of the Adriatic was right on time. A few Egyptians up early enough even wondered if Ra wasn’t back at the helm.

The hungry child in Mongolia said to say, “Hi!” The sad monk in Tibet, “Thanks for the laugh!” The realtor in Minnesota asked, “Are you sure about the farmer’s market?” The dancer in Rome, “Don’t tell a soul…” And the sage in Djibouti says, “You have exactly what it takes to have financial security for myself and family!”

Tell me, any recollection of all your other-worldly to-ings and fro-ings, yet? Or are we still pretending you’re just mortal?

If you only knew…

Perception

“Change your thoughts, and in the twinkling of an eye, all your conditions change. Your world is a world of crystallized ideas, crystallized words. Sooner or later, you reap the fruits of your words and thoughts.”

-Florence Scovel Shinn

Our perceptions are all in our mind. So it makes sense that if we change our mind, we change our perceptions. And when we change our perceptions, we change our reality! We can experience more of the Truth of this wonderful world, the beauty, the peace, the prosperity, the abundance, the clarity. Choose to see it. Choose to live it!

Beliefnet: 7 Steps to Reconnect With Yourself

Sometimes due to circumstances, a big life change, the dissolving of a long-term relationship, a health issue, or other reasons we realize we have lost touch with our true self. During these times we often experience feeling frustrated, scared for the future, anxious, unfulfilled and stuck. We feel lost because at some point we became disconnected from who we really are. This often occurs as adults try to fit themselves into societal norms, relationship expectations or are just trying to survive to such a degree that there is not the capacity to focus on anything else. To protect ourselves we may tuck away our true nature and shut the door so we can just get through what we need to get through.

You Can Heal: Cat’s Angel Message for April 19, 2018

You Can Heal: Cat’s Angel Message for April 19, 2018 

 April Theme:  We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


Like a Manatee, I am Peaceful, Respectful, Gentle, Kind, and Self-Healing. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


 419: Within each of us is the ability to heal ourselves and others. Yes! You are qualifies on both accounts.  The thing to remember about self healing is that it begins with you. You must have the motivation and willingness to start the process and to keep it going. Each of us is a work in progress and we are all at different levels. So don’t become discouraged if you go through a temporary setback or feel that you aren’t exactly where you thing you should be. Baby steps work best giving us the option to make changes as we go. If you are working with others quite often all that is needed is a being willing to listen or providing a shoulder to cry on. You don’t need to solve their problems for them, so being a good listener and offering encouragement can work miracles. Don’t be stingy about helping others or yourself and the benefits will return tenfold!


Saint Padre Pio assists those who require healing as well the healers themselves. This enthusiastic Ascended Master helps to promote faith and an optimistic outlook. Saint John of God also helps during the healing process and specializes in helping those suffering from depression and anxiety. Archangel Zadkiel provides emotional healing and Archangel Azrael helps those who are grieving and Archangel Raphael oversees all forms of healing, and the Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin helps us to heal by showing us the power of self care and compassion. Kindness and compassion are essential to  the healing process because  when we are able to show it to ourselves we find it easier to share it with others.


Our Sacred Stones for today are: Moonstone which can assist emotional healing by helping to stabilize the emotions and draw out old emotional patterns. Sometimes as a healer you need a little help after working with others, and gentle Prehnite promotes unconditional love and helps you to clear your energy when you need it most. It is also linked to Archangel Raphael which gives it an extra boost.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
