See The Open Door: Cat’s Angel Message for January 12, 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.


When one door closes, another opens. But often we look so long, so regretfully, upon the closed door, that we fail to see the one that is opened for us. – Helen Keller


112:  Winter is a time of introspection. By looking within we gain knowledge and insights of who we are, who we want to be and where we want to go. This helps to clear the pathways and makes it possible for the letting go of old habits. This is the first step to initiating personal growth. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy when it comes to these old habits. While they may “feel” comfortable the truth is that we hold onto these things because we are afraid of change or fear of failure.  Remember, we can’t grow if we refuse to accept the changes that are offered. As you explore your own inner workings remember to pay attention to any recurring thoughts and ideas. The key lies in the way we perceive the information provided. This information paves our way into the future we desire, and planting positive thought seeds along our path will be beneficial in the coming months.


Archangel Jeremiel shows us the way to making the life changes we need to move forward. He teaches us that change should not be feared and is a normal part of life and our overall growth. The Ascended Master Mother Mary helps fill our hearts with love. She teaches us that compassion and forgiveness are essential to healing ourselves and the letting go process. The Greek goddess Hecate teaches us about the importance of change. She helps us to release the past and the old things that keep us from moving on and how to accept change and transition. She tells us ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must face your fears and release the past. Change and circumstance are inviting you to choose a path. It is your choice so make the one that is best for you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Agate and Angelite. The humble Agate  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 the most of our life experiences. Or,  try Angelite  which infuses us with a calming energy that eases fear of the future, it also helps us to connect to the Universe and it’s helpers and Fluorite helps to promote spiritual growth.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Daily Good: Waiting to Unfold

Mirka Knaster, fiber and mixed media artist, asks us “How many times have artists thought, while working on a project, ‘Will I ever get this completed?’ How often do we face seemingly unsurmountable obstacles on the path to turning our vision into reality? And when will we reach the level of proficiency and excellence we aspire to?” These questions are familiar to any creative person who has a vision and wants to bring it to life. And what we often lack is patience, a slower tempo, more attentive listening to the nature of the unfolding creation.

EarthSky News: Moon sweeps past Mars January 11 to 13

On January 11, 12 and 13, 2019, use the waxing crescent moon to find the red planet Mars. You’ll find both Mars and the moon in the evening sky, with the moon in a waxing crescent phase and Mars much fainter than it was six months ago, when it outshone all the stars, brighter than since 2003. Now, Mars is still shining as brightly as a 1st-magnitude star. It’ll be that bright “star” close to the moon on these evening

Inner Journey:

HOW ARE YOU SABOTAGING YOURSELF?

“If you play it safe in life you’ve decided that you don’t want to grow any more.”
— Shirley Hufstedler

How are you sabotaging your potential for change?

We unconsciously use defence mechanisms to shield us from situations we perceive to be scary or painful. A part of you may want to grow and change, but another part may be resisting because change always moves you into new territory in your thinking and emotions.

If you find you are getting anxious, fearful, angry, frustrated, dismissive or unmotivated, then defence mechanisms are at work. Watch for them and know them to be signs of fear that wants to hold you back. Then courageously move through them.

“I have never been contained except I made the prison.”
— Mary Evans

Wisdom

“Wisdom cannot be pass’d from one having it to another not having it.

Wisdom is of the soul, is not susceptible of proof, is its own proof.”

-Walt Whitman (1819-1892)
This is another example of the more that you give, the more that you have. One of the best ways to learn is by teaching! Wisdom is not something that can necessarily be measured, but it can be felt, and it can be shared.

In Your Thoughts: Cat’s Angel Message for January 11, 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.


You are today where your thoughts have brought. – James Allen


111: We are receiving a reminder today about watching our thoughts. The number 111 is all about manifestation and prosperity so keep this month’s theme in mind because choosing your thoughts with care and direction will be the key to a  successful evolution. 111 is also a repeating number and strongly resonates with new beginnings, individuality, success, growth, and positive decision making. Don’t waste your energy on negative or fearful thinking lest you inadvertently manifest those instead. Make sure that your thoughts match your dreams and goals and keep things on the positive side of the path. If you do find yourself tilting toward worry or fear acknowledge these feelings and then turn them over to the angels to transform into something better. Today’s keywords are Thoughts-Direction-Transformation.


Archangel Jeremiel teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. The Ascended Master Solomon teaches us how to do things more efficiently as he guides us through difficult situations. Focus and efficiency help us in our quest for personal evolution. And the Hindu goddess Lakshmi helps us to make decisions that are best suited for planning for the future. She says: ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things! 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.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Dioptase which helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

With a five-hour journey ahead of her, she couldnt work because it made her travel sick. Feeling a hankering to do something creative, she picked up the tiny cross-stitch kit. As she took her seat and began to work, she immediately noticed something….”

Elephant Journal: How we can use our Emotional Guiding System to set Goals & Intentions.

Two years ago, on New Year’s Day, I was overwhelmed at the thought of setting goals.
It’s not that I didn’t know how, I simply wasn’t in the right head space. Letting the pendulum swing the other way, I toyed with the idea of not having goals for the upcoming year. That didn’t work either—it made me anxious. Clearly, I had to find a middle-of-the-road option.

That’s basically how the idea of choosing a theme rather than setting a goal came to me.

When it comes to the world’s greatest animal migrations, the movement of millions of wildebeest over vast swaths of savannah probably comes to mind. Or perhaps it’s the thousands of miles flown every year by Arctic terns as they move from pole to pole. Or maybe an image of a breeching humpback surfaces in your imagination, as the whales swim from feeding grounds to calving grounds along coastlines.

Patheos-Pagan: The Toxicity of Crystals and Ways to Practice Real Stone Spirit Magick

The use of crystals for healing, abundance and other energetic practices continues to grow in mainstream popularity. There’s so much toxicity in this shallow approach to working with stones, from the deplorable ways they are mined to the dangers of blind faith in their healing power. Stone spirit magick works, but we need to know how to harness the power of these treasures, so I’ve added a few tips because ranting without offering solutions is also toxic.

Inner Journey:

GO FOR PASSION!

“There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.”
— Frederico Fellini
How do you ration your passion?

In what situations have you experienced your life to the fullest? Do you live your passion as fully as you can? How do you limit your experience of passion?

Passion emerges when your essence expresses itself. How do you stop yourself from fully expressing who you are?

“Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark.”
— Henri Frederic Amiel

“We could hardly wait to get up in the morning.”
— Wilbur Wright

Wisdom

“It is easier to be wise for others than for oneself.”

-La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)
This is so true! Don’t we all give better advice than we take from ourselves? Because we can look at someone else’s problems objectively, and we are so caught up in our own emotions that it’s hard to step back and look at our own problems with the same wisdom. But it is possible! As we learn and grow and spend more time in silence, we make better decisions, we become more wise.

Doing Your Best: Cat’s Angel Message for January 10, 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.


Simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret. – don Miguel Ruiz


110:  Today’s number packs some strong energy that relates to your life and your  spiritual path. Self communication will be important today so pay attention to the information and guidance that comes your way.  You are in charge of creating your reality so stay focused on what’s important and best for you as this  will help open the doors that you need to move forward. Remember that guidance comes in many forms.  Some of which will be unexpected or simply come out of the blue. The key will be in taking the information that you receive from your “sources” and sifting through it. Pick out what is best for YOU and discard the rest. This will help you create a workable game plan that meshes nicely with what you want to accomplish. Our keywords for today Listen-Receive-Create.


Archangel Jophiel teaches us that by surrounding ourselves with beauty it helps us to slow down and take our time. This helps us to make the most of the guidance and information we receive. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to set aside things we have no control over.And, the Egyptian goddess  Hathor helps us to overcome indecision and grants us the ability to hear and trust the voices of the Divine and that of our own heart.  She tells us ” Indecision can be your enemy, whose goal is keep you distracted and from hearing the voice of your heart Remember that each moment gives you the opportunity to learn and grow. It is what you were made for!”


Our Sacred Stone for the day is Azurite. This stone can used to guide the development of intuition as it expands the mind to promote clear thinking, understanding and new perspectives.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Jan. 10, 2019 “The Sense of Identity”

Happy Thursday,

We all have a past. Things we have done, people we have known, places we have been. Good or bad our past is what shapes us into the person we are. While we can’t change the past we CAN learn from it and grow into the person we want to become.
