Thought For The Day: Aug. 5, 2020 “It’s Worth It”

Happy Wednesday,

We are seeing a lot about “empowerment” lately. The first step to empowerment lies in our ability to take responsibility for our words, and actions. If you are in the wrong, have done wrong or messed something up grab your courage and take the responsibility. Then work hard to make amends and make things right. Walking the path of empowerment is never easy but it IS worth it.

The Celtic Tree Month of Hazel Begins August 5

noisettes-dans-l-arbre-hazelnut-1617248

The Celtic Tree Month of Hazel or Coll, August 5th – September 1st.

_________________________________________

HAZEL LORE

Long ago, hazel trees were prized by the Romans who used the limber twigs to hold up grapevines. These vines were sacred to the Roman god Bacchus and goats who were found feeding on them were sacrificed to Bacchus and roasted on hazel spits. The Romans were also responsible for giving Scotland it’s the Latin name of Caledonia. Hazel trees were plentiful in Scotland and the Romans called it Cal-Dun or Hill of Hazel. Since the medieval times hazel has been held sacred, particularly in Ireland where it is part of a Celtic triad – Apple for beauty; Hazel for wisdom; Oak for strength. These trees were in fact so sacred that cutting one unnecessarily carried the penalty of death. Hazel was often used in funeral pyres and it was also found in the coffins of people of note like chiefs and rulers.

In Irish legend, 9 hazel trees grew around the sacred well of Connla. The trees produce flowers and fruit (nuts0, the nuts fell into the well and were eaten by the salmon, the legend says that the salmon will have the exact number of spots as the number of nuts it has eaten. The salmon became the carrier of all knowledge.


PLANT INFORMATION

This tree is found all over the world ( Europe, North Africa, Asia, Britain, and the US). It can be found growing in damp places, hedgerows, and oak woods. It resembles a large shrub more than a tree although it grows to heights of 12-20 feet. Hazel trees have heart-shaped leaves and produce yellowish catkins (male) along with reddish flowers (female) which can be seen between April and May. There are approximately 15 species of Hazel and they all produce nuts, called hazelnuts, filberts or cobnuts depending on where you live. The nuts are ripe by September and can be eaten right off the tree, The uneaten nuts fall off the tree and will actually germinate if left. The wood from this tree is tough and limber. It is used to make walking sticks, fishing poles, baskets, and hampers. It’s excellent firewood and the charcoal is used for making gunpowder and crayons.

____________________________________
HAZEL IN MAGICK

Hazel is used for divination and dowsing rods are often made from it. This was actually documented by Roman author, and philosopher, Pliny the Elder. The art of dowsing is called rhabdomancy and traditionally a divining rod was cut at night and from the eastern side of the tree. Before the 17th century, these dowsing rods were used not only to find water but treasure, thieves, and murders. An interesting fact is that this form of dowsing is still practiced in the Celtic nation of Cornwall. Cornish legend says that the dowsing rod is guided to water or ore loads by piskies who guard the hazel trees. The nuts can also be used for divination. It is said that if you eat hazelnuts prior to divinatory workings you will gain increased knowledge. You can also use the wood, leaves, and nuts in dark moon rituals.
The nuts were talismans carried for various reasons. People carried them to prevent toothaches. And they were said to help cure snakebites. Along this line St. Patrick used a hazel rod to drive all the snakes from Ireland. In Scandanavia this tree was sacred to the Thunder God, Thor, and was used to protect a person again being struck by lightning.

In Scotland, on Halloween, 2 hazelnuts are given the names of lovers and put into the embers of the fire. If they burn quietly and stay together, the lovers will remain together. But if they crack and move apart they are ill-matched. Hazelnuts are also considered good luck and said to increase fertility. New brides were often given strings of hazelnut as gifts.

Ancient sailors also wore crowns of woven hazel twigs called wishing caps. These caps offered protection against bad storms at sea. The ancient druids believed that if you wore such a crown you could become invisible.

This wood is also good for crafting wands and record of them can be found in ancient Egyptian and Chaldean records. According to Greek myth, Apollo gave a hazel wand to Mercury. With it, Mercury was able to instill good virtues into mankind.

_______________________________________

HAZEL PEOPLE
If you are a hazel person you should pay attention to your own natural rhythm. It is easy for you to be impatient and you should sit back and let thing s happen naturally. You will be much happier. Hazel people are also understanding, moody, honest, and tolerant partners and have excellent ideas of right and wrong.

Choosing Hazel or Hazelnut as a magickal name represents someone who is wise and experienced.

The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.

– Blaise Pascal –

The Earth Treasure Vase Healing Project

“In 1990, I had the opportunity to meet a 106-year-old Buddhist Lama living in a cave in a remote part of Nepal. As I was walking up the highest mountains in the world, I realized that I had a chance to actually ask a question of the old wise man in the cave. As I was walking, I contemplated what I should ask him that would be of benefit, not just for me, but for all of us because most people dont have the opportunity to ask a question of a 106-year-old Lama in a cave. I thought about it really deeply and what came to me was, what can we do to bring healing and protection to the Earth?” Cynthia Jurs, Founder of the Gaia Mandala Global Healing Community, shares more in this interview. { read more }

Inner Journey:

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR EMOTIONS

“Emotions are the next frontier to be understood and conquered. To manage our emotions is not to drug them or suppress them, but to understand them so that we can intelligently direct our emotional energies and intentions…. It’s time for human beings to grow up emotionally, to mature into emotionally managed and responsible citizens. No magic pill will do it.”
— Doc Childre

Many of us believe that we need to keep a tight lid on our emotions. We fear that if we ever allow these emotions to be expressed, they will do serious damage.

But if we summon up the courage to truly feel our emotions, we discover that they don’t last. The monster in the closet turns out to be a pussycat. In fact, if we are willing to experience our emotions completely, without resistance of any kind, they burn themselves out in only a few minutes.

The only thing that keeps emotions alive within you over long periods is your unwillingness to acknowledge them.

“By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it.”
— Joseph Collins

Interdependence
“Whatever we do to any other thing in the great web of life, we do to ourselves, for we are one.”

-Brooke Medicine Eagle, 1991
The great web of life – this amazing connection that binds us together. These days when we hear “web” we think of the worldwide web. And this is a great analogy for how we can really move beyond space and time to experience our connection with one another. I had a service question recently, and ended up speaking with a technician in India! We had a great conversation. He solved my problem and I showed him my whatsyourdosha.com website. Although Ayurveda is somewhat new to us here in the west, it’s a part of everyday life in India, and he was pleased that we are finally “getting” it!

Inner Journey: 

TRANSFORMATION

“The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
— William Faulkner

Longing for a miracle that will transform your life? Miracles happen, and if we don’t want that magic to disappear on us, we need to learn from each epiphany — to integrate it, apply it, and build on it so we can permanently shift to a new level of being.

The real key to fulfillment lies in ONGOING transformation: building our awareness of daily opportunities to change our perceptions and raise our consciousness. Life is about dissolving the old and creating anew. The more we open to accepting and learning from every life experience, the more our lives transform.

“Enlightenment must come little by little — otherwise it would overwhelm.”
— Idries Shah

Interdependence
“One life stamps and influences another, which in turn stamps and influences another, on and on, until the soul of human experience breathes on in generations we’ll never even meet.”

-Mary Kay Blakely, 1989

 
Yes, we are independent, as people and as a nation, and at the same time we are interdependent. We rely on each other. We support and sustain one another. Each person, independently, makes contributions that have far-reaching effects. It’s the pebble in the pond example, where the ripples are felt for a long time after the stone has landed

A Little Nudge: Cat’s Angel Message for August 3, 2020

 

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


There is no shame in asking for help. Sometimes all we need is a little nudge in the right direction. ~Cat


83:  Assistance comes in various forms especially where prosperity and abundance are concerned. The Ascended Masters (AM’s) are requesting that we open our connection with them and allow them to help us today. As they walk the path with us simply ask for guidance and the ability to see valuable assistance in whatever form it takes. The AM’s can also help us to focus on the divine spark that lives within each of us. This helps to create a positive energy flow which is an important factor when dealing with our ability to create and manifest. The other tool we have at our disposal is creative thought which enables us to visualize new possibilities and put them to use. Stay focused open and take joy in walking the lighter side today!


Today’s Spiritual Helpers include:

 

Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self-beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want. He says ” Expand your mind and you will manifest prosperity and abundance on all levels.

 

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!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

 

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication, and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.

 

Blue-Green Chrysocolla helps make smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity by inviting the energy of universal love into our personal experiences. It brings our inner strength and self-awareness forward which keeps our energy balanced and our creative side active which allows us to handle change more effectively.

 

Larimar which helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

SS August Moon

August’s Full Corn Moon

Aug 3, 2020 at  8:58 am PST/ 9:58 am MST/ 11;58 am EST (Note: The moon will appear full on BOTH Sunday and Monday night!)

The energy of the August moon is going to cause a bit of a shakeup due to Uranus squaring up with the Sun. This can make us feel a bit wobbly. This energy will help us in a gentle fashion to let go of things that are no longer in our best interest it will provide clarity and help us to find the answers we need. This overall energy will continue to build toward the “Lions Gate” on August 8th which will be a time of supercharged energy.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac calls this moon the Sturgeon Moon because the Native people of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain knew this was the best time to catch these big fish. I have also seen it called the Barley Moon or Corn Moon as this moon is also associated with grain and the rebirth we celebrated at Lughnasadh.

Other names for this moon are Dog’s Day Moon (Colonial American), Harvest Moon (China), Fruit Moon (Cherokee), Women’s Moon (Choctaw), Moon When All Things Ripen (Dakotah), Dispute Moon (Celtic), Lightning Moon (Pagan).

Carry the harvest theme over into your magickal workings for the day. What can you sacrifice (harvest) today that will help to sustain you in the future? Spiritual and physical health are also good areas to work on at this time.

Let’s Get Creative: Cat’s Angel Message for August 2, 2020

 

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


By using your power as a creator you can clear the pathways to your success. ~Cat


82:  One of this month’s keywords is “Creative”. Most people don’t connect creative energy with prosperity and abundance. The creative thinking person combines the Attitude of Gratitude with new ways to solve the issue of lack. We can always call upon the Angels for assistance although we must remember that they will supply us with only what we need. We are being reminded today that our creative energy is enhanced through faith in ourselves, in our abilities, and in the Universe. If we desire more then we must do our part to get the manifestation process rolling. However, by working together with the Universe the wheels continue to turn and things move in our favor. Take an active roll in creating your life by staying open to receiving new ideas, and then let your creativity run wild!


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 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 Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to find the answer to the question “How shall I live my life?” She tells us that every moment gives us opportunities for growth. ” Indecision can be your enemy, whose goal is to 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!”


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.

 

 Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop. This stone is also associated with Archangel Jophiel.

 

Carnelian is used 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
