Thought.Co : Celebrating Imbolc With Kids

Imbolc is a festival of fire and light – it’s one of the cross quarter days – and falls on February 2 in the northern hemisphere (it’ll be on August 1 if you’re one of our readers below the equator). This the time when winter is beginning to wind down, but it’s still cold and snowy; spring is looming around the corner, but isn’t quite here yet

Elephant Journal: The Powerful Impact Yin & Softness can have on our Fiery Lives.

Serenity is an acquired taste, my therapist told me on a crisp Autumn day last year.
Back then, as the brilliant leaves fell and the trees turned bare, I had no idea what she meant. Maybe I didn’t yet care.

Now, I believe her.
Serenity is not a taste I even wanted until recently. I couldn’t fathom it, really

Inner Journey:

COMMUNICATING WITHOUT WORDS

“The gesture is the thing truly expressive of the individual – as we think so will we act.”
— Martha Graham

Every movement and non-movement we make is a form of communication.

How do you communicate fear, withdrawal, avoidance, shutting down, disagreeing, and an uncaring attitude?

If you aren’t sure, others can probably tell you. Begin to pay attention to what your eyes and arms and facial expressions communicate. Our body language speaks louder than our words.

“An avoidance of true communication is tantamount to a relinquishment of my self-being; if I withdraw from it I am betraying not only the other but myself.”
— Karl Jaspers

Today’s Recipe: Cleansing Veggie Date Juice

I especially like making this juice after the holidays as I tend to indulge a bit more. Just a bit! This drink is very low in calories yet very filling. It’s full of vitamins, potassium, and antioxidants. Keep the “meat” of the veggies after juicing them to make cakes and spaghetti sauces. In order to keep the drink tasting fun and almost caramel-like, I like to blitz in some dates. Nothing bad in this juice

Checks & Balances: Cat’s Angel Message for January 18, 2019

 

daily Angel Message sms

Checks & Balances: Cat’s Angel Message for January 18, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Weariness comes, on some days, from lack of service to self. – Mary Anne Radmacher


118: Today is a day of checks and balances.  We are being asked to perform a Self-Check of our balance between giving and receiving. This is an important part of our self care routine because tipping the scales in either direction can cause us (and others) harm. By giving away too much of ourselves stress levels skyrocket and we become drained and tired. If we receive or take too much from others, not only do we drain them but our energy changes from positive and loving to needy and greedy. The Universe is asking us to perform this necessary balance check and if you are tipping the scales in either direction take time to ground and center then make the adjustments to free up and even out your energy flow. This will help to open the doors to new things that you might miss out on otherwise. Remember, staying balanced means that you have more energy to create your dreams and goals.


Archangel Michael provides us with direction and the courage that we need to keep ourselves on the right track. The Ascended Master Buddha teaches valuable lessons about balance and moderation. He understands that there IS such a thing as “too much of a good thing” and it is through moderation that we achieve balance. The Egyptian goddess Maat teaches us that our point of balance is thin and feather light. It is best achieved through truth and self honesty.  She reminds us to “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 Garnet. This deep red stone helps us to let go of old, outdated and harmful ideas, and patterns. This is important to achieving overall balance as we sometimes do things just because we can and have been allowed to get away with it. Garnet also promotes balance by helping to clear and re-energize the chakras.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Jan. 18, 2019 ” Change”

Happy Friday,

Change happens, that’s the truth. Another truth about change is that it’s often scary. Because of this we tend to fight against change even when we know that it’s for the best. However, our thought for today puts change in a different light. Face it with courage, dance in the puddles and embrace the blessings it brings.

Some of us are teachers, some are healers, others builders, others artists, some just along for the ride and experience. Some of us are calm and quiet and some of us are loud and passionate.

Elephant Journal: 4 Ways to Uncover your Golden Shadow during Eclipse Season

Eclipses represent a dance of light and dark—similar to our personal psyches and souls.

Daily Good: The Deepest Silence

“Ever abiding within and without, overlaid with the mutable patchwork garment we know as this visible universe, silence forms the woof and warp of all things seen and unseen. Yet at any instant it is immanent and accessible. To the mystic, silence is the ground, the core of reality. All else relates to and emanates from it. The deeper elements in all religions point to this silence. It is God, it is Buddha; it is Allah. But, to paraphrase Lao Tzu, to name it is to elude its essence. It can only be experienced. The fifteenth century Muslim born saint Kabir wittily observed, “I laugh when I hear the fish in the water is thirsty.” This paradox, which asserts that we are forever surrounded by silence yet all the while occluded to its existence, forms the key dilemma in spirituality.”

Inner Journey:

TRUST YOURSELF

“I never know what the next lesson is going to be, because we’re not supposed to know; we’re supposed to trust ourselves to discover it.”
— Melody Beattie

How deeply do you trust your own guidance?

Always trust that you know what’s best for you. To move forward in your life, gather information from the ‘experts,’ consider how their advice relates to your situation and then act only on what feels right for you. What does your whole being (mind, body and soul) say ‘Yes!’ to?

You are the only expert for your own life.

“I trust so much in the power of the heart and the soul; I know that the answer to what we need to do next is in our own hearts. All we have to do is listen, then take that one step further and trust what we hear. We will be taught what we need to learn.”
— Melody Beattie

“Ultimately, we must learn to trust ourselves. When we do this intimately and intelligently, the world opens full of meaning before us. We find that we ourselves are the doorway to a fathomless understanding of the source of life itself. We need only to learn to walk through it.”
— James Thornton

A Note from the Universe

Sometimes when you’re ready for a change and you kind of know it but won’t admit it, when it comes, not only are you surprised, but it hurts.

Yeah, I know that doesn’t help much, unless you remember the “ready” part. Because there is simply no change that might ever transpire in time and space that happens before you’re fully able to use it for your own growth and glory.

Love watching you create,

“A player’s effectiveness is directly related to his ability to be right there, doing that thing, in the moment… He can’t be worrying about the past or the future or the crowd or some other extraneous event. He must be able to respond in the here and now.”

-John Brodie

John Brodie is the famous former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. How do I know this? My brother and my father were BIG fans when we were living in the Bay Area. Athletes know how important it is to be fully present in the moment when competing. There are too many factors that have to fall into place to succeed – and the only way to get them to do that is to be there: mentally, physically and spiritually.

Sail Away: Cat’s Angel Message for January 17, 2019

Sail Away: Cat’s Angel Message for January 17, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – widely misattributed to Mark Twain


117:  We are the masters of our destiny’s  and the creator of our own reality. While this may sound cliche…. it’s also the truth. All the work we’ve done and  the changes we have made and are making are starting to pay off and the Universe is encouraging us to stick to our path. Stay on course and make a conscious decision to move forward and stay focused on the things that are important to you. If you are not quite where you want to be then take time to readjust your course. The key is to listen to your inner guidance and let go of your worries and fears as you continue to push onward. Our angels understand that we sometimes get discouraged when results don’t happen right away. So they are reminding us to have faith in ourselves and in the loving energy of the Divine. The wheels are turning behind the scenes and things are falling into place. Today’s keywords are: Focus-Forward-Patience.


Archangel Raziel gently guides us through the manifestation process so that we are more adept at creating what we  need and what we  want. Remember that NEED and WANT are two separate things and by concentrating on need first all else will fall into place. The Ascended Master Babaji helps us to create a strong, clear line to the angels and the Divine Source. He teaches through breath-work which calms the body and mind and and brings clarity and focus. And the Greek goddess Artemis helps us to set new goals to replace the ones that aren’t paying off , fell by the wayside or just didn’t work out. Ask her for guidance and to aid your intuitive skills. She says “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Pietersite (The Tempest Stone). Use this stone to help access our intuition and create a link to a loving level of guidance. It helps to strengthen the will and increases our focus of where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Jan 17, 2019 “Your Sanity Is Worth It”

Happy Thursday,

Where is your mind today? Are you doing your best to be positive and upbeat even though there are  problems that you are currently dealing with, OR are you letting your worries and fears consume you?  While we all have worries and fears it’s how we handle them that matters. Yes they should be dealt with but we should not let them rules our lives. Do what you can, when you can and set aside the things that you have no control over. Your sanity is worth that.

Inner Journey:

WHY MEDITATE?

“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
— Buddha

Meditation is considered an essential practice for those who seek self-knowledge and self-mastery. Why? Basically, meditation brings awareness of how our minds work. Over time, we become watchers, able to detach from the thoughts and emotions that play out in our minds.

With this detachment, we gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions. We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas.

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius
