Spirit Library: Keep Afloat (a message from Kate Spreckley)

In our world dualistic thinking has governed our experience of life. As such our lives have been divided into opposites of light / dark, joy / sorrow, love / fear. We have had to know each side in order to explore and reestablish balance.

Daily Good: It Couldn’t Be Clearer

One planet, one experiment.

E.O. Wllson –

It Couldn’t Be Clearer

“Interrelatedness is one of Brian Swimme’s powers of the universe that I have been contemplating. I could have accompanied this particular exploration with any picture I have. Every flower, every leaf, every tree trunk, every mushroom is only here because of a web of relationships. With air, water, fungi, microbes, insects. With their fellow plants, the soil their roots penetrate, the beings growing on those roots, the slowly dissolving stone forming the soil. And they know they have these relationships. They smell each other, reach out to each other, signal each other, warn of danger. Trees nurture and protect their offspring. They send messages along savvy fungal networks. A seed won’t open its case unless it senses that its necessary cohorts for growth are in place. It will wait decades, even centuries, for that to happen.” { read more }

Inner Journey: TIME TO BLOSSOM

“The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations.”
— Julia Cameron

Many of us unconsciously believe that we’re unworthy or defective. We adopted this belief very early in our lives when the people we looked up to disapproved of our demands, wishes and behaviours. We concluded that we had to learn to be good.

Unfortunately, ‘being good’ usually meant giving up our own differences or uniqueness. We learned that we might get the love we wanted if we acted and felt like others wanted us to.

If we seek true joy and connection with life, we now need to remove these artificial masks and express our deep authentic nature.

“For all those years you’ve protected the seed. It’s time to become the beautiful flower.”
— Stephen C. Paul

A Note from the Universe

Looking for the gift in a situation, typically means there’s a belief that the situation’s outcome could have been better.

And thinking that an outcome could have been better, only happens when there’s a belief that one’s joy could have been greater had there been a different outcome.

And thinking that one’s joy hinges on the outcome of any time-space occurrence, almost always means that some cool cat somewhere, has ever so briefly forgotten not to interpret events with their physical senses alone, that all the elements (then and now) are lining up in their favor, and that their own happy feet needn’t have missed a beat.

Daily Wisdom
April 12, 2021

Power
“Power consists to a large extent in deciding what stories will be told.”

-Carolyn Heilbrun (1988)


This is where the power of the press comes in. Not just what stories will be told, but how they will be told. Words carry weight. The same holds true in other areas of life. What are our leaders telling us, and what are they leaving out? We exercise our power by becoming more informed, and by voting.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

During Dreamtime: Cat’s Angel Message for April 12, 2021

During Dreamtime: Cat’s Angel Message for April 12, 2021

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.

____________________________

Look to your dreams. Answers that you seek flow easily in the dreamtime. ~Cat

_____________________________

412: Dreams can be a powerful tool for solving problems. If you remember your dreams make note of them or write them down ( or at least what you do remember) then look for answers in the symbolism and the feelings they evoke. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Who was there with me?

*Where was I in this dream?

*What was I /we doing?

  • What stood out? (feelings, colors, animals, places people, etc)

Examine the information and see how it pertains to what you are going through. The dreams that we remember vividly always correspond to people and situations that are impacting our life and there are always lessons to learn and personal knowledge in them. You can ask the angels or archangels to assist you in your dreams. They are more than happy to help clear away negative or pessimistic thoughts and feelings. You have the power to help and heal yourself so use it to your best advantage!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews and changes. He can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently as well as the areas that need attention and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He 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. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement.

The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be an opportunity to heal. He encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. If something is holding you back let it go and continue forward.

The Inuit Goddess Sedna helps us develop our intuition through the Dreamtime, you can connect with her in or around water. (bath or shower works) “Look to your dreams to guide you. They will show you things you missed while your mind was busy and active”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Smoky Quartz can help you to interpret and find the meaning of your dreams.

Celestite helps you remember your dreams.

Ulexite brings an understanding of and clarity to the dreams we remember.

Lapis Lazuli helps to enhance the work we do in the Dreamtime. it also protects us and promotes contact with our spirit guides.

Kyanite helps us to remember our dreams and promotes healing in the Dreamtime

Thought For The Day: April 12, 2021 ” Nourishment”

Happy Monday,

Starting the week with a reminder about holding on to things that we have outgrown or no longer make us feel good. What are you holding onto that you could let go of? What are the things that are using up your energy, your time or even your money? Challenge yourself to let go of ONE THING that isn’t bringing you joy or peace. Just one thing. Make room today for something that will nourish your soul!

Ground- Center- Clear: Cat’s Angel Message for April 11, 2021

Ground- Center- Clear.: Cat’s Angel Message for April 11, 2021

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.

____________________________

Let negativity bounce off of you. find creative ways to keep your energy intact. ~Cat

_____________________________

411: Today is one of those days when you may feel a little overly sensitive to people and outside energies. The angels are telling us to avoid unpleasant people and situations if you can manage it. Otherwise “bubble up” and surround yourself with protective energy and let the “nasties” bounce off. Another way to keep your sanity today would be to engage in something creative. Immersing yourself in a creative project is a sure way to promote peaceful feelings. It also creates a block against negative energy. Remember, the angels are just a thought away so if you need help just ask them! Your key words today are Ground- Center- Clear.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Michael is the go-to guy for protection. His clear, powerful energy acts as a shield that helps to buffer energies directed at us. He offers protection from those who would do us harm or cause pain, even those who think they “have our best interests at heart or simply can’t stay out of our business”. Simply ask him to block these lower energies.

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 Babylonian goddess Ishtar helps us to navigate times of darkness and change. She shows us how to access our courage. She reminds us ” Times of struggle and darkness can be intimidating. and keep you rooted in fear. Remember to stay clear on what is truly important. This focus will shine like a beacon and hold the darkness at bay.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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 and brings harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.

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.

Pyrite has a warm, positive energy. It teaches us to have confidence in our skills and abilities so that we are able to realize our true potential by stimulating new ideas and knowledge of our own self worth. Pyrite also helps to balance instinct with innate intuition and overall creativity.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Open The Windows: Cat’s Angel Message for April 10, 2021

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.

____________________________

Fear not the shadows for they hold the things that we have set aside. Treasure chests filled with hopes and dreams! ~Cat

_____________________________

410: Today the Universe has opened a small window that will greatly enhance our manifestation process. Pay careful attention to the thoughts and ideas that keep popping up. The key is to create a clear vision of what you want and to hold onto those optimistic vibes. We all want to manifest good things in our lives and this window will allow us to add more stepping stones to our creations. The Universe and our helpers have heard our requests and the wheels are turning. They are letting you know that the work you are doing is paying off and that you are headed in the right direction. Keep doing your part and continue to add your energy to theirs to keep things moving. If you are guided to take action, do so and know that the Universe has your back and good things are on the horizon!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Zadkiel helps to heal our hearts and minds so that accepting support in all forms is easier. He also promotes compassion for ourselves and others while helping us to find things that we have lost, forgotten about or set aside. Ego is not a friend of truth as it forcibly tells us that we don’t need help and can do everything by ourselves. He boosts our faith and fills our hearts with peace and calm.

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 Norse goddess Freya celebrates fertility, spring and new growth. She is also a goddess of fate and extends to us an invitation to use your personal magick to create. She says “Feel the pulse of earth beneath your feet and feel the sun upon your face. Draw upon them to enhance your power as you help the tides of fate to weave your destiny.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Black Banded Agate which helps us start new things, embrace new beginnings and projects. It promotes the creativity needed to make things happen. The patterns in this stone invite inspiration and creative flow!

Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making.

Use Carnelian for motivation and increased creativity. It teaches us to trust in ourselves and helps us find creative solutions to current issues as it boosts self esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices which enhance our ability to draw new forms of prosperity and abundance.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Inner Journey: HOW DO YOU SHOW YOU CARE?

“Love is not only something you feel. It is something you do.”
— David Wilkerson

In her book, ‘No Less Than Greatness,’ Mary Manin Morrissey speaks of a research study that explored how family members communicate with each other. Apparently, the most frequently spoken words between husbands, wives, sisters and brothers were “What’s on?” and “Move.”

She goes on to say, “We all desire great relationships but often settle for just getting by. Many of us have stopped questioning the fact that we may know fictitious TV families more intimately than we do our own.”

The most powerful force in our lives is our ability to love. Indeed, it’s the most basic essence of who we are. How do you experience and express your love for the people in your life?

“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other…. The whole purpose of life is to live by love.”
— Thomas Merton

A Note from the Universe

What if there was only you, and the rest of the world was “make believe,” imagination? If even the people in your life were drawn there, or faded away, based upon your thoughts.

Would it then be easier for you to grasp the true meaning of limitless? Would you then believe that you alone make your reality?

Cat, the rest of the world is “make believe,” imagination. And all the people in your life are there or fade away based upon your thoughts.

Wow… that was easy.

Tallyho limitless,

Tying Up Loose Ends: Cat’s Angel Message for April 9, 2021

Tying Up Loose Ends: Cat’s Angel Message for April 9, 2021

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.

____________________________

Today is a great day to create something amazing! ~Cat

_____________________________

49: Today the Universe is telling us that this is a good day to work on any incomplete projects or things that you’ve been putting off. By making time to tie up these loose ends we are clearing the way for new growth. The same goes for things that you may have tried and didn’t quite work out. If it’s something that has meaning to you it’s a good time to reexamine it and find what DID work and move on from there. Remember that this month is all about “Challenging Yourself” and embracing your power as a creator. Your spiritual support system is taking care of you. If you need help with creative solutions, focus or direction just ask. Grounding and centering before getting started will help the messages that you receive to come through more clearly. Making the most of today will benefit you in the near future.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Gabriel helps us to access our inner wisdom and shows us how it can guide and inspire us. Gabriel also teaches us the importance of communication on all levels. This helps us to overcome our fears so that we can complete the things we start and achieve positive results during times of transformation and change.

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 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:

Ametrine. This stone, a combination of amethyst and citrine, helps to release blocks like negative emotional programming. It also encourages growth while helping us to explore all possibilities and find the creative solutions that are needed to make the most of the information we are given.

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.

Howlite helps us to formulate our plans to and achieve our ambitions and goals. It helps us to communicate these things in a calm and reasonable manner and tempers this with patience. Howlite also creates a link to the universal realms and prepares the mind to receive guidance.

Daily Good: What is Time and Does it Always Move Forward?

If the universe is movement, it will not be in one direction only. We think of our lives as linear but it is the spin of the earth that allows us to observe time.

  • Jeanette Winterson –

What is Time and Does it Always Move Forward?

“While we take for granted that time has a given direction, physicists don’t: most natural laws are time reversible which means they would work just as well if time was defined as running backwards. So why does time always move forward? And will it always do so?” { read more }

EarthSky News: Star-hop to the Coma star cluster

Long ago, the Coma star cluster represented the Lion’s tufted tail. It is a beautiful cluster, well worth taking the time to pick out in the night sky. You can see Leo from the suburbs, but you’ll need a dark sky to find the cluster. In mid-evening now, as seen from mid-northern latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, the constellation of the Lion will be high in the southern sky. You’ll see the Lion at nightfall, too, though more in the south-southeastern portion of the sky.

Inner Journey: PROBLEMS OR SOLUTIONS?

“If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bringeverything into the realm of possibility.”
— Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Stop and be aware! Have you been thinking about what you want or what you don’t want?

It’s so easy to lock our minds onto problems rather than opening to receive solutions. But what we think is what we get. This is so important! If we continually focus on problems and negatives, that’s where we’ll stay.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”
— Helen Keller

A Note from the Universe

Would there be any point in giving you the gift of imagination, the freedom to think as you choose, and dreams that set your soul on fire if even a single one of them couldn’t come true?

I think not.

I love you too, too much.

Tallyho,

The Universe

Fate
“Fate keeps on happening.”

-Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1925)


Life keeps on happening. I am hearing that song from Journey in my head right now: “Wheel in the sky keeps on turning, don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow.” I guess that’s what keeps life interesting for us. We can’t control everything that happens in the world, because everyone has free will. So, yes, some things are uncertain – and that is really wonderful! We can have happy surprises at any time.

Daily Tarot: The Tower

The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause

Thought For The Day: April 8, 2021 “Be Chill”

Happy Thursday,

Learning to go with the flow is a good thing. It teaches us that we don’t have to control everything and what things we can and can’t control. Most things will work themselves out if we just let them unfold naturally Don’t make life harder than it needs to be. Just be chill!
