It’s OK To Ask: Cat’s Angel Message for June 30, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Refusing to ask for help when you need it is refusing someone the chance to be helpful. – Ric Ocasek


630: In the last month we have worked on achieving balance where material things are concerned. We have accomplished this by staying focused on our goals and by having faith in ourselves and that things will work out to our best advantage. As June comes to a close the Universe sends this  gentle reminder, ” Help is always available and you need only to ask.” Remember that help can arrive in many forms. It comes not only from the Universe but from people, animals, blessings or events that show up in our lives. It’s important to pay attention and be present so that you can reap the rewards that come your way. The lessons of June will help you in the new month.


Sometimes asking for help is hard because our ego tells us that we have to do things by ourselves. You can ask Archangel Raphael to help remove any/all blocks that are associated with asking for or accepting help. Both Archangel Michael and the Ascended Master Saint Germain can help by pointing us in the right direction, especially when we feel at loose ends and unsure of our nest move and the Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us to stay balanced and sheds light when we are confused, she says “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Sodalite. This stone promotes integration of logic and intuition as it draws down information to the physical level. Sodalite dispels confusion and releases outdated thought patterns while creating space for new ideas. It also helps us to look for and find truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MNN: What you need to know about palm oil

You may not cook with it, but it’s in a lot of products you probably eat. And that’s not good for the planet.

In the 20 years between 1995 and 2015, global production of palm oil increased from 15.2 million tons to 62.6 million tons, according to the European Palm Oil Alliance. There’s more palm oil produced today than any other vegetable oil in the world, and the majority of it comes from Indonesia (53 percent) and Malaysia (32 percent).

Patheos-Pagan: Tragedy at the border: Helping through the practical and the Magickal

Like so many, I’ve felt anger, sad, horror, terror, powerlessness over the separation of families at the border. I’ve wanted to smash my computer with a brick. I’ve struggled to concentrate on work. The sounds of weeping babies stays in my ears. I want it to stay. I don’t want to forget. I don’t want to normalize.

Inner Journey:  

TUNE INTO THE INNER CRITIC

“A critic is a legless man who teaches running.”
— Channing Pollock

Are you aware of your inner critic? We all have this voice that tells us we are bad, stupid, clumsy, cowardly…. Although its intent is to help us succeed, the harsh self talk of our critic just serves to drain our energy and lower our morale and immune system.

To defuse the inner critic, we need to recognize when the critic is speaking. We need to know that this voice does not necessarily speak for who we really are. This is an old pattern that may no longer be serving us. We want to open to the possibility that the words are not likely true. We can ask ourselves, “Are these words helpful?”

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt

“Abilities wither under faultfinding, blossom with encouragement.”
— Donald A. Laird

“Never react emotionally to criticism. Analyze yourself to determine whether it is justified. If it is, correct yourself. Otherwise, go on about your business.”
— Norman Vincent Peale

A Note from the Universe

I’m often asked, you know, being the Universe and all, “What’s the purpose of life?” But truthfully, no matter who or what you are that’s a pretty daunting question. So daunting, I’m invariably compelled to reply with a few questions of my own:

“Do you mean besides having fun? Besides learning that the world has always spun in the palm of your hand? Besides bicycles, long walks, and hot chocolate? Besides holding hands, giving hugs, and drying tears? Besides having a dream and making it come true? Besides February, Fridays, and Polar Bears? Besides witnessing miracles that only you are privy to? Besides sunrises, sunsets, and every rare and fleeting moment in between?”

Daunting is an understatement.

Happy EVERYTHING!

Thoughts

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” -Marcus Antonius (A.D. 86-161)

How often do we think about the QUALITY of our thoughts? We obviously have an abundant quantity of thoughts – but how many of those are thoughts of absolute quality? Which thoughts are like little gemstones that we want to treasure and save, to bring out again and again to wear with pleasure? Maybe it’s time to do some mental housekeeping. All those old, dusty, dinghy, non-productive thoughts that just end up making us feel bad – throw them out! They are no longer useful to us! Now, replace those old thoughts with new, efficient, beautifully clear thoughts. And watch how our outside lives begin to reflect the shiny new thinking that is going on inside.

Collaborate and Improvise: Cat’s Angel Message for June 29, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


In the long history of humankind (and animal-kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed. – Charles Darwin


629: Our divine collaboration with the Universe has taught us that we are empowered creators in our own right. While we receive assistance and guidance from other people, the Universe and through opportunities, in reality WE are the creating force that ultimately makes things happen. The combination of faith and confidence boosts our manifestation power and is the driving force that helps us to create a new reality. Today we are being asked us to embrace and acknowledge our divine partnership as well as our own power to create for ourselves. Remember, if you can dream it, you can do it!


Since this is more of a day of “gratitude” we are not working with any specific Angels or Ascended Masters today. Choose your favorite or simply offer thanks to the Creator Spirit.


Choose an angelic communication stone like Angelite, Celestite, Moldavite or try Kunzite to create a balanced partnership and open your heart center more fully to Divine love or Moonstone to connect with the Goddess.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: 17 Spiritual Principles To Help You Overcome Impostor Syndrome

I met my spiritual teacher in Nepal on my 27th birthday. In the midst of a 30-day meditation retreat, I was one of five attendees granted the honor of meeting this lama. As I sat in his waiting chamber, my excitement was buried under overwhelming sensations of fear and self-doubt. All I could think about was how he would see me as a fraud. How I wasn’t worthy of his attention. How he would sense my brokenness and send me off.

Elephant Journal: The Connection between Yin & Yang, the Moon & Menopause.

I am 51 years old and I have finally made it through the most physical aspects of “The Change” as my Mom used to call it.
My skin is healthy again, no more night sweats, the hot flashes have finally ended, and I no longer have my period. Even the huge emotional surges have mellowed with time. Life feels more manageable and my body feels more under my control now.

MNN: Heat wave sparks ‘fairy wind’ in Ireland

A heatwave sweeping through Ireland this week has not only pushed average temperatures well into the 80s, but also increased sightings of “fairy wind” across the country.

This weather phenomenon, more commonly known as a dust devil, occurs during dry conditions when warmer surface air rises quickly to form an updraft.

EarthSky News: What are the full moon names?

Some almanacs like to give each month a special full moon name. Other almanacs like to reference full moons relative to seasonal markers, as defined by equinoxes and solstices. Is one way better than the other? No. Both have their roots in folklore. Of course, both the monthly names and the seasonal names necessarily favor either the Northern or Southern Hemisphere

Patheos-Pagan: Ritual of Life-Passages

History is amoral: events occurred. But memory is moral: what we consciously remember is what our conscience remembers- Anne Michaels
Rituals of life stages, often called rites of transition or rites of passage are the ones that mark significant changes in people’s lives. They are very frequently seen as the “ideal” ritual, and as the pattern that other rituals should follow.

Inner Journey: 

EXPERIENCE STILLNESS

“My greatest wealth is the deep stillness in which I strive and grow and win what the world cannot take from me with fire or sword.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

If our minds are always busy, they don’t get time to do basic maintenance – to sort, tidy up and take out the trash. If we don’t periodically clear out space in our minds, there’s no room for new ideas to take root.

Where do you find stillness each day and each week? Plan for quiet time, relaxation and stillness daily, even if it’s only for 5 or 10 minutes.

“For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe.”
— Larry Eisenberg

A Note from the Universe

If you knew how much you have in common with every single person now living in time and space, in terms of your deepest hopes and dreams, fears and worries, you’d wonder how I manage to tell you all apart.

And from this day forward you’d likely think of every single one of them as “dearest,” just as I do.

Thoughts

“When you rule your mind you rule your world. When you choose your thoughts you choose results.” -Imelda Shanklin

Our minds are so constantly busy that we often forget that we actually have a choice in the matter. We can choose our thoughts! And by choosing our thoughts, we are choosing our experiences and creating our futures. And we need to remember that our reactions are thoughts, also. Instead of letting our emotions ride on auto-pilot, we can choose to take a breath and take inventory rather than giving in to an impulsive reaction. In this way, our thoughts can lead us in a much more productive direction, one that creates solutions rather than problems.

Beliefnet: 7 Tips for Living a More Mindful Life

Losing the Illusion: Cat’s Angel Message for June 28, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth. – Ludwig Boerne


628:  As we prepare to enter the last days of June we are given a gentle reminder about keeping faith in ourselves and in Spirit.  Today is also the Full Moon (12:53 am EST) . This makes it a great time to give your intentions a boost with  this powerful lunar energy. Strengthen your belief that miracles happen and that problems are illusions that we can work around. Use your powers of perspective today and see things in a positive light even if things don’t quite work out as planned. Remember divine timing and if things don’t our way we can still find that ONE good thing and add it to our “puzzle”. It’s a starting point or a piece of the foundation you are building, either way use it to keep you moving forward and upward!


Archangel Uriel can help us to solve problems that pop up by finding the additional information we need to make the best decision possible. The Ascended Master Vywamus who teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward and the Hawaiian Goddess Pele helps us to create  the energy needed to make our goals happen. She says “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Green Calcite. This gentle stone works on the mental level and assists us in letting go of beliefs and patterns that no longer serve us but that we continue to hang onto out of habit and encourages divine flow into your life with ease and harmony.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: June 28, 2018 “Own it”

Happy Thursday,

We are each responsible for our own lives. This means making the best decisions that we can. If we allow ourselves to lead by others (remember the Sheeple People?” then we have no room to complain when things don’t work out or go our way. Take responsibility. Don’t blame others. If you screw up… own it. If you do something amazing… own it!
