Transformation Time: Cat’s Angel Message for December 5, 2021

December’s Theme: It’s time to replace the old and outdated and welcome in new opportunities and blessings. This is the season to receive the good things the Universe has in store!

Today’s Message: Transformation Time!

125: Initiating positive change in our lives enhances our ability to create something better for ourselves.. Remember that these changes are necessary if we are to grow to our full potential. Today the Universe is telling us that the time has come to acknowledge the changes that we have already initiated and to make any adjustments that will help ease the way. The number 5 relates to transformation on all levels and it’s important to continue to let go of what no longer serves to make room. Our spiritual helpers are here and are sending us messages and clues that relate to our path. Embrace your faith in yourself and the Universe and allow your transformation to happen!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back he can teach you how to let it go or let it be so you can continue moving forward.

The Welsh Goddess Cerridwen uses her cauldron “Amen” to help provide us with knowledge, wisdom, personal rebirth, and inspiration. remember that change brings us the transformation that we need. She reminds us “The opportunity for your own transformation lies before you. It provides you the chance to spread your wings and grow. Look into my sacred cauldron and see the vision of your path unfolding before you

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Tiger Iron. This stone, which is a combination of Jasper, Hematite, and Tiger’s Eye, helps to promote change by opening space within and providing the energy to accomplish what’s needed by generating new and creative ways and ideas to make the changes easier

Black Tourmaline helps to clear away negative energy and offers protection. It also helps to stimulate both creativity and practicality. Both of which will help us to achieve our goals.

 Unakite. This green and pink stone helps us to see blocks that we have erected within ourselves and then provides valuable insights on removing them so that we can move forward. It helps us to appreciate and gain clarity from the present moment and works with both base and heart chakras

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Setting Things In Motion: Cat’s Angel Message for December 4, 2021

December’s Theme: It’s time to replace the old and outdated and welcome in new opportunities and blessings. This is the season to receive the good things the Universe has in store!

Today’s Message: Setting Things In Motion

124:  Yesterday the Universe reminded us of the importance of making room. Remember, the key is to clear away what you no longer need in order to make room for new growth and blessings. (ventures, projects, relationships, opportunities etc.) Keep this month’s theme in mind and pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas as they will show you the way to success. It will also clarify the areas that need your immediate attention. Have faith in yourself and listen to your inner guidance as well. You know what’s best for you and only you can set those wheels in motion. Today the Universe is sending us a gentle reminder. If we need new ideas, a boost of courage or help to find our way, we just need to ask!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive life choices. He understands that it’s hard for us to let go of people and situations even though they are holding us back or causing us unintended stress, drama or harm. Jeremiel can help ease these transitions and reminds us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future.

 The Ascended Master, Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence.

The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Desert Rose (Selenite). These beautiful stone “flowers” help to increase our understanding of our own personal value in the universal plan. It dissolves outdated self-imposed programming and helps us to replace it with new ideas and self perspective

Moonstone, the stone of new beginnings, reminds us that all things are a part of the cycle of change  This beautiful, watery stone helps to navigate the cycles of change and calms our emotions. Gently encouraging creative thinking and creative problem solving as it brings our intuitive skills forward, promoting control and confidence so these skills become more familiar and easier to access. It also provides emotional healing by helping to stabilize the emotions and draw out old emotional patterns

Okenite helps clear away obstacles and teaches us the important lesson that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when we allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

December brings to a close one of the most energetically intense and unpredictable years I think we have ever experienced. However, before the year is up, we can expect our awakening, healing and growth to rapidly accelerate with not only the Solar Eclipse this weekend, but also the 12:12 gateway, the Solstice and Christmas. As a result, we will have many opportunities this month to realign and refine our awareness with our soul’s consciousness

Inner Journey: WHAT IS SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS?

“You are a holistic being with both nondualistic energy and the energy of the physical plane as a part of your being at your disposal.”
— Wayne Dyer

Andrew Schneider helps us understand our human experience of being soul. He says, “Soul consciousness arises when we stand facing in opposite directions at the same time – toward eternity and toward time, toward infinity and toward space, toward unity and toward complexity. We stand in that dualism without being dualistic, for in consciousness we can accommodate the opposites. We do this by identifying with both. This identification results in the experience of being an individual while at the same time being the whole, and finding no contradiction in this experience.”

“Give your difference, welcome my difference, unify all difference in the larger whole — such is the law of growth. The unifying of difference is the eternal process of life — the creative synthesis, the highest act of creation.”
— M. P. Follett

A Note from the Universe

Would it make any difference if you knew that we understand, deeply, the battles you’ve waged? To know that we’ve approved of the choices you’ve made? That you have your own fan club here? That on the weekends we watch movie clips of your life? That every single morning we celebrate your birthday? That what you’ve learned, you’ve taught us all?

Would it make any difference if you knew that sometimes when no one’s watching, we each, in our own way, pretend to be you?

Well, whether or not it makes a difference… YOU have.

Daily Wisdom
December 3, 2021

Empowerment
“When one paints an ideal, one does not need to limit one’s imagination.”

-Ellen Key


In the film world, we see that anything is possible. Why? Because there are writers and actors and directors working together to create a reality for the big screen. Many of these production companies have names that emphasize that it is an illusion that we are watching, like “Dreamworks” or “Imagine Films.” In the “real” world, anything is possible, but we don’t always believe it. We limit ourselves to what we have already experienced, or what we can see, or feel. But the truth is that we are creating our reality everyday, just the same way that filmmakers are making movies. We’re writing our script, and acting it out. If we want to change something, we can change it. We have that power.

Today’s Message: Making Room

123:  Today the Universe is sending us a very clear message regarding personal manifestation. “In order to receive new blessings (opportunities, relationships, enlightenment, etc.) you need to make room. You do this by simplifying your life and letting go of the things and people who are leeching away at your energy, time, or, resources. If something no longer brings you joy or is  not for your highest good it’s time to cut the cords.” The letting go process is necessary for our overall growth as well as helping to pave the way for the good things that the Universe is sending our direction. While this process can be difficult it’s definitely worthwhile. Once you start this process you will see and feel a major shift in your energy and you will feel more empowered.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting ourselves from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says:  ” Personal boundaries are important to your well-being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self-assurance to do what is in your best interest.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self-defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential. It helps to dissolve problems and insecurities that can arise when we are faced with new opportunities.

Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem solving process. It enables us to release things that are no longer relevant to our current path and dispels any guilt we may have when we leave things behind. It helps us to make the necessary changes that will bring harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.

  Soft colored Lepidolite helps us by filtering away distractions and obsessive thinking so that we can focus on more important things. It soothes and heals stress and reminds us to just breathe.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Inner Journey: SECURITY

“Let us never confuse stability with stagnation.”
— Mary Jean LeTendre

“Many people think that by hoarding money they are gaining safety for themselves. If money is your ONLY hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a person can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. Without these qualities, money is practically useless.”
— Henry Ford

“One has to abandon altogether the search for security, and reach out to the risk of living with both arms. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing.”
— Morris L. West

“One thing we can do is make the choice to view the world in a healthy way. We can choose to see the world as safe with only moments of danger rather than seeing the world as dangerous with only moments of safety.”
— Deepak Chopra

“The only peace, the only security, is in fulfillment.”

Desire moves us to action. The bigger the desire, the swifter the action. When we really want something, we get creative, and pull out all the stops. We engage our intelligence, we find the means to fulfill our desire. We become empowered.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Indecision is not necessarily a bad thing, but taken to extremes it can make you pessimistic and defeatist. Take the time you need to make the choices you need but don’t get bogged down and grind to a halt. Take yourself in hand and refuse to feel helpless in the face of a challenging (or tempting) situation. Refuse to be rushed by anyone, too.

December’s Theme: It’s time to replace the old and outdated and welcome in new opportunities and blessings. This is the season to receive the good things the Universe has in store!

Be the Creator that you were meant to be. You have the power to make things happen! ~Cat

Today’s Message: Setting Things In Motion

122: You are a creator and as a creator, you are the determining factor in making things happen for yourself. Our thoughts and our faith are part of our “Sacred Tools” and when combined together with our creative power our manifestation ability greatly increases. Today the Universe is reminding us to honor our power as a creator and to have faith in our own divine wisdom and magic. Remember to pay attention to the messages that you receive as this information helps us to create and draw new life choices and opportunities. Allow yourself to be open and confident and acknowledge your unlimited potential. Believe in your heart that the Universe is helping you by supporting the efforts you are making. Things happen in their own time and by simply setting things in motion

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process. In turn, this shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes blessings easier to receive.  

 The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision-making needed to make things happen.

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:

  Sunny golden Citrine helps increase our self-esteem and is a powerful healer of old outdated patterns, which allows us to manifest new things. This stone also attracts abundance, but keep in mind that abundance comes in many forms not just financial, so stay open to them all.

Mookite, a form of Jasper that comes in many creamy color combinations, promotes decision-making and versatility. These things are important when we are faced with new experiences and find ourselves faced with the need to take action. It encourages us to be flexible during times of change and helps us to embrace new experiences with an open sense of adventure.

Smoky Quartz helps to neutralize negative energy and teaches us how to work through the fear of failure which can show up during times of change and transformation. It also promotes clear insight and focus which helps us to leave behind the things that no longer serve us and make room for the blessings headed your way.

December Birthstone : Blue Topaz
Birthstone Color: Blue

As cool and inviting as a blue lake on a blistering summer day, December’s birthstone is derived from the Sanskrit word “tapas,” meaning fire. This is because Blue Topaz was considered by ancient civilizations to have cooling properties.

December Birth Flower: Narcissus

The narcissus is the December birth flower and symbolizes good wishes, faithfulness and respect. The narcissus can often be confused with the daffodil, the birth flower for March, which is a type of narcissus. Although most narcissus flowers are spring flowers, there are several species that bloom in the winter, such as the paperwhite narcissus — making it appropriate as the birth flower for December.

The deep purging and releasing of old energy is uncomfortable but will ultimately serve to create space for the new energies that come in with the Solar Eclipse

Inner Journey: STAR CONNECTIONS

“The interchangeability of matter and spirit means the starlit magic of the outermost life of our universe becomes the soul-light magic of the innermost life of our self. The energy of the stars becomes us. We become the energy of the stars. Stardust and spirit unite and we begin: One with the universe. Whole and holy.”
— Dennis J. Kucinich

Ponder the spectre of yourself as one human being in the over six billion people on Earth. See Earth as one tiny planet in a galaxy of billions of stars, and that galaxy as just one of billions of galaxies in our expanding universe. We are so minute as to be nonexistent. And yet, we have the power to visualize, to imagine the entirety of the cosmos.

In your journal, write about the paradox of being both microscopic and immense.

“I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if our spirituality were to come from looking not just into infinity but very closely at the world around us — and appreciating its depth and divinity.”
— Thomas Moore

“I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”
— Harry Emerson Fosdick

A Note from the Universe

You are exactly as you now are – with your every mannerism, challenge, and trait; skill, talent, and strength – because before this life began, at the height of your glory, with full awareness of your divinity, reach, and magnificence, you knew best the stage that would maximize this adventure. Bad hair and all.

Trust yourself, Cat. You chose wisely, and though you may not see it yet, you’ve already mustered the courage you had to muster, faced the fears you had to face, braved the storms, fought the battles, and exceeded every expectation you ever had for being the kind of person you hoped you’d be.

Tickles me pink,

It’s possible that a trust has been violated or a relationship may be hurt by a broken promise, or you sense that this might happen soon. Until you know for sure who and what might be involved, take no action, although the discreet question asked of a trustworthy person might be all right, though still risky. Make no accusations but respect your own self-interest.

Ready, Set, CREATE!: Cat’s Angel Message for December 1, 2021

December’s Theme: It’s time to replace the old and outdated and welcome in new opportunities and blessings. This is the season to receive the good things the Universe has in store!

____________________________

Don’t be stingy with your ability to give and receive. What you send out come back so allow things to come full circle. ~Cat

Today’s Message: Ready, Set, CREATE!

121: Welcome to December, are you ready to create some good things? The ultimate goal is to embrace the new blessings that will help us create the life we want while nurturing our inner peace and adventurous spirit. Do your best to stay focused on what you want to accomplish and not on your fears. Remember that it is in your best interest to embrace both hope and optimism. Don’t hesitate to release your worries and concerns to your angels to help keep your energy flowing. If you can’t let it go then just let it be. Learning to set aside what you can’t control will help you in the long run. The work we do this month will set the tone for the new year. Allow intuition to be your guide and grab the blessings that come your way to help set things in motion

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears as he guides us through issues of self-doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress and confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by showing us how to work through obstacles that pop up as he teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self-confidence.

The Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back he can teach you how to let it go or let it be so you can continue moving forward.

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting ourselves from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says:  ” Personal boundaries are important to your well-being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self-assurance to do what is in your best interest.”

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.

Eulite (Hypersthene) helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships which are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.

Howlite helps us to formulate and achieve our ambitions and goals and helps us to communicate these things calmly and reasonably and helps us to embrace patience. Howlite also creates a link to the universal realms and prepares the mind to receive guidance.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

NO NEED FOR COMPARISON

“Nothing is good or bad but by comparison.”
— Thomas Fuller

We are each unique, so comparing ourselves to others serves no purpose. Even comparing myself to how I was a while back is not usually helpful. Typically, comparison just brings the ego a false sense of either superiority or inferiority.

If we let go of comparison and choose instead to completely accept where we are, we can enjoy both peace and growth.

“Do not judge and you will never be mistaken.”

Empowerment
“’How does one become a butterfly?’ she asked pensively. ‘You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.’”

-Trina Paulus


Empowerment means going beyond our comfort zone. It’s reaching within to find what it takes to move us beyond where we are to where we want to be. We have that power, but whether it lies dormant or it is put into action is completely up to us

Daily Tarot: The Tower

If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.

Today’s Message: Peaceful Vibes

1130: On this final day of November the Universe is bringing us the following message. “You and your loved ones deserve the things that bring you peace and we are here to help make them happen.”

Sometimes it’s difficult to just admit that we need help to let alone accept it. However, the truth is that we cannot do everything by ourselves. Today we are being reminded that it’s okay to ask for help. Sometimes all we need is someone to listen and sometimes we need a little more. Remember that help comes in many forms so when asking the Universe for assistance always keep an open mind. Our spiritual helpers are always available and ready to assist you in anything that brings peace to you and your loved ones.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Sandalphon hears all requests and makes sure that they get to the Angel or Ascended Master who is best able to handle them. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!). Sandalphon also provides us with an emotional boost of courage. This is important as it helps us to make bold decisions that will help us on our path.

The Ascended Master El Morya supports all who give of themselves in service of others and he shows us how to stay committed to our own growth so that we can heal and teach those in need.  He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision-making needed to make things happen.

The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

The humble Agate is the perfect stone 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.

Dalmation Stone. This light-hearted stone is a combination of quartz, microline, and black tourmaline. It instills feelings of safety as it helps us to reconnect with our playful side which is important to our emotional health and it transforms outdated thinking during times when we feel stuck and enables our forward progress by encouraging a fresh perspective

 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.
