“Exchange is creation.”

-Muriel Rukeyser


The creative process is fascinating. Everyone goes about it in his own way, but in almost every case, creation does not happen alone. People give us ideas, inspiration, encouragement and support. There’s an exchange of energy that makes things happen, or allows things to happen. We’re better for it, and our projects are better for it.

Changing The Phrase: Cat’s Angel Message for June 17, 2021

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.

____________________________

Ground yourself. Feel the sun on your face and let the breath of Mother Earth clear your spirit. ~Cat

Today’s Message: Changing The Phrase

617: We hear a lot about positive affirmations and how using them can transform our lives and our thinking patterns. Now before you start rolling your eyes and thinking “Geez Cat, I don’t have time for affirmations….” here’s something to think about. Every time you alter a thought pattern from negative to positive you’ve created a personal affirmation. It’s as simple as changing “That’s never going to happen for me.” to “What I can I do to make this happen? or This will happen for me”. As I said yesterday, negative thinking blocks our powers of manifestation (and our flow of energy). This upsets our balance (see June’s Theme) and hits us with temporary setbacks. Today the angels are asking us to watch our thought patterns and change negatives into positives. Perform a balance check and ground and center if needed. Your reality is how you perceive it so be confident and move forward in your own power.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Uriel teaches us how to access our creative database. he reminds us that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to use a non-conventional approach. He gives us the essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem-solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations.

The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara teaches us that we have an unlimited supply of personal power and helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns. This gives us the skills we need to strengthen our personal boundaries so that we can be and stay strong in situations where we need to be.

The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, who embodies compassion and mercy says, “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self-love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart, and spirit. Be gentle on yourself. Joy comes from embracing the simple things which will free the energy needed to assist the creation process and help others along the way.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Agate. This humble stone is the perfect one 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 make the most of our life experiences

Amazonite. This stone is sometimes called the stone of hope. It helps us to speak our truth with confidence and instills us with hope itself. It calms and soothes frayed nerves during times of stress and helps us to feel and embrace universal love. It works with both heart and throat chakras.

While Garnet is best known as a stone of protection it can benefit the use of our natural talents as well. It helps us to overcome any resistance we may have in using our gifts and promotes self-confidence. Garnet removes what no longer serves and mental self-sabotage. It promotes balance and clears and re-energizes the chakras.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Thought For The Day: June 17, 2021 ” Slaying Dragons”

Happy Thursday,

We all have things that we fear, like new things or change for example. The truth is that once you face one of your fears you find that the others are easier to deal with. Each time you face something that scares you you become stronger, more resilient and you acquire a change of perspective. Face a fear today, even if it’s just that first step. The next step will be easier. let’s slay some dragons today!

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.

____________________________

Finding that one good thing helps to make the negative things more bearable. ~Cat

_____________________________

Today’s Message: Granting Full Access

616: Today’s message relates to how we create our own reality and how our thoughts play an important role in our personal evolution and manifestation process. When we look for the best and expect good things to happen, they do. While it may not be exactly what we asked for, we benefit from them nonetheless. This is also a reminder about turning your fears and worries over to the Universe and its helpers. Letting the “negative nasty’s” go is imperative to your overall well being. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy and the longer we hold on to these “negatives” the harder it is to find and generate good things. The angels are asking us to keep our thoughts, actions and energy levels optimistic so that we have full access to manifesting capabilities.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want. He says ” Expand your mind and you will manifest prosperity and abundance on all levels.”

The Ascended Master Melchizedek, helps us to manifest while shielding us against the negative nasty’s and overcoming unpleasant situations. He helps us to heal through color, so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant.

The Mayan goddess Ixchel helps to get our creative juices flowing by breaking through the barriers we have erected that are blocking our progress. Call on her if you are starting something new. ” Clear your mind and allow the creative source to fill you. New things are waiting for you to embrace them!”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Chrysocolla. This powerful blue-green stone helps us during periods of change and challenging times. It brings smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity and calm. It helps us to be more self aware and promotes self confidence that inspires both creativity and motivation.

Tiger’s Eye (Gold) helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions.

Zoisite takes negative energies and turns them into something positive. It helps us to manifest ourselves rather than what others impose on us and infuses creativity into our thinking.

POWER

“There are two kinds of men who never amount to much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.”
— Cyrus H. Curtis

How do you relate to people in authority? Depending on your character and upbringing, you may react defensively or meekly to those you perceive to hold more power than you do.

Hierarchical power dissolves in the presence of authentic power. Your true personal power has nothing to do with status. It is determined by how attuned you are to all aspects of yourself and to the needs of others.

In any exchange with a person ‘in power,’ focus your attention on meeting your mutual needs and the relationship will be both equitable and fruitful.

“Compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power.”

Negative energy is like quicksand. The more energy you give it the harder it is to free yourself. ~Cat

Today’s Message: Releasing the Negatives

615: Rising above negative thoughts/feelings and indulging in a little self care are on the universal agenda today. There are times when getting clear of these things feels like a monumental task. This can be especially true when there are negative things going on around us. When we experience negativity in any form it makes an impression. We get angry, freaky or we absorb it causing a harmful dis-ease that festers inside. Sounds pretty gnarly right? I mean who really wants to go on someone else’s negative roller coaster ride, or your own for that matter. This trap is easy to get caught in and we’ve all been there. The angels advice is pretty clear on this. “The best thing that you can do for yourself is to acknowledge the situation and surround it with healing energy. Then send it to us to deal with. Surround yourself with positive people and energy. Make your own self care one of your top priorities. Remember, you cannot be healthy for others if you are not healthy for yourself!”

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

This is a good time to ask Archangel Michael for assistance. When we are bombarded with the energy of others (negative or not) it creates psychic lines and hooks that attach to our energy field and effectively drain our energy. One of my spiritual mentors taught me this simple exercise: “Archangel Michael please cut away all psychic hooks, lines, and cords that have been attached to me by others. Please return these things to the people who sent them, not to do do them harm, simply to return what is theirs.” When I do this I always feel a tingly sensation on my neck/back etc followed by a sense of relief.

The Ascended Master Mother Mary provides us with all forms of healing. She surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love as she imparts feelings of peace and safety as she gently heals the dark, hidden places within while showing us the path that leads to compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. She helps to fill our hearts with peace and love and helps everyone regardless of path or religion.

The Egyptian goddess Bastet (Bast) is not only associated with cats both large and small she is also a goddess of protection and of things that bring pleasure to the senses. She asks you today “What are you passionate about and how are you using that energy? be like a cat today and use your energy wisely. By expending too much you are not honoring your commitment to your own self care.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:
