Thought For The Day: March 27, 2020 “Creativity”

Happy Friday,

Friday is always a good day to start thinking about a creative project. We all have a creative side …… yes even YOU! Draw something, paint something, fix something, or write something. You can create a masterpiece even if no one sees it but you. Our creativity is kind of like meditation. It focuses the mind, promotes relaxation and boosts those happy endorphins. So have some fun today and let your creative side come out and play.

Inner Journey:

IN CONFUSION

“It is while trying to get everything straight in my head that I get confused.”
— Mary Virginia Micka

When I get confused, when my mind is wrestling with what to do, I have learned to abandon my thought processes completely. The best solution, I’ve discovered, lies in asking my heart for direction. This requires that I stop my mental chatter, either by sitting in silence or by doing something completely different. In quiet, still space, I often know what’s needed, with a clarity I never get from the labouring of my mind.

And I now know, without doubt, that when I’m confused is never the time to act. I must wait for clarity.

“I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.”
— Daniel Boone

Greatness
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

-Mark Twain (1835-1910)
People who are “great” feel no jealousy or competition with others. They understand that there are no limits, that there is no lack. A little encouragement and support go a long way toward helping someone pursue, and eventually achieve, his ambitions. It feels good to hear someone say: “if I can do it, you can do it!

Calm In Chaos: Cat’s Angel Message for March 26, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Calm In Chaos: Cat’s Angel Message for March 26, 2020

March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.


CALM IN CHAOS In the midst of the flurry – clarity. In the midst of the storm – calm. In the midst of divided interests – certainty. In the many roads – a certain choice. – Mary Anne Radmacher


326: One of the jobs that our angels perform is to ensure that our needs are being met. While sometimes it may not feel like it, in all reality it is. In today’s society, people tend to want more than they need to live. If you look around you can probably find a surplus of THINGS that you could do without. (I know I can) When the angels tell us that they are making sure our needs are met they are speaking of the necessities.  They are here to assist, not to provide excess. If we aspire to have more then we need we must do our part to make it happen. Working with angels, ascended masters, etc. is a partnership! Today we are reminded that our needs truly are being met. Take a moment to offer gratitude for life and for what you have!


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 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 Hindu Goddess White Tara embodies the beauty of Divine love and shows us the path to strengthening or restoring our faith. She says: “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Nebula Stone. This energetically unique stone resembles the night sky. It allows you to see the value of the things around you and helps you to appreciate what you have while promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.

Black Obsidian. This stone not only protects it also helps to bring negative energy to the surface where it can be dispelled and provides support during times of change. It takes the “things” that we’ve hidden and composts them into positive soil to support out new growth.

Pyrite has 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

Greatness
“Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.”

-Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
It all starts with us – right where we are. We have the capacity for greatness, we have the ability to achieve and accomplish whatever it is that we set out to do. But do we know this? Do we believe it? Do we act as if this is true? Or do we hesitate, procrastinate, or hedge our bets? We must be confident and forge ahead if we are going to get anywhere. And how far we go is simply a matter of how fast we move and how long we keep going!

Shedding The Old: Cat’s Angel Message for March 25, 2020

Shedding The Old: Cat’s Angel Message for March 25, 2020

March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.


We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. – Joseph Campbell


325: Change is an important part of life. It can happen gradually or drop in out of the blue. To promote our own growth we need to be willing to embrace change no matter how or when it happens. By fighting these changes we find ourselves stuck emotionally, mentally and spiritually. However, when we allow change to happen it invites new things and people into our lives. This brings new growth and opportunities that will help us as we create our path. If the proverbial winds of change are blowing through your life the Angels and Ascended Masters are sending you this message: ” These changes are for the best even though some may be difficult to accept or seem scary.. We are here to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe and cared for during this time. We are surrounding you with protective, peaceful energy and are helping to take away any pain, fear or negativity that you may be experiencing.”


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Azrael not only helps comfort the dying and help them to cross over, but he also helps the grieving to cope with the changes and feelings that losing a loved one creates.

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.

Ascended Master Solomon helps us to take what we are given and make the most of it. He 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 help create the necessary stepping stones we need to move ahead.

The Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake, they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”


Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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.
 Crocoite helps ease the bigger shifts of change like death or divorce by soothing the emotions and helping us to cope.

Eulite (Hypersthene) which 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 that are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Thought For The Day: March 25, 2020 “Solitude”

Happy Wednesday,

Solitude is something we all crave. This alone time gives us the opportunity to do things for ourselves that we have put off. What are you doing with your time of solitude? Is there a book you want to read? A personal project that you want to do? Time with your pets? A new recipe? Maybe you just want to take a nap or long leisurely soak in the tub. The possibilities are endless and totally worth it. So how will you surprise and delight yourself today?
