Inner Journey:

TWO VIEWS

… no matter what our difficulties may be, we recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream flowing below all surface troubles and that we are of one substance with that stream. The soul knows no difficulties.”
— James Thornton

Masters teach that we can experience two completely different states of reality at the same time — from the personality and from the soul.

Author Pema Chödron talks about being hungry, cold and tired but at that same time deeply content. Ram Dass speaks of how the emotional heart can be breaking while we recognize that all is unfolding perfectly.

Allowing our soul to be present with the discomforts of the personality shifts our experience of the discomforts.

“True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing in our lives.”
— Martia Nelson

Humor
“Mirth is like a flash of lightning, that breaks through a gloom of clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity.”

-Joseph Addison (1672-1719) British Essayist


Truly spiritual people are light-hearted and filled with joy! They love a good laugh and are the first to share a smile. These are the kinds of people who brighten our day just by showing up. How much we can learn from this! We’re all connected, so it makes sense that if one person is “up” it helps all of us to rise up. Let’s be the person who shines through the clouds today.

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

It could be hard to sit still today and every little distraction may look more like an invitation to take a break or start the next thing. Get a lot done anyway by concentrating on short tasks and short conversations. A checklist helps keep things smooth and organized. Afterward, maybe take a nice long walk, stretch those legs, and shake the day’s dust off your shoulders.

Today’s Message: Taking A Day Off

627:  Good Job! We have been doing a lot of work and getting things done on our own behalf and this means that we are headed in the right direction.  The Universe is offering us a vacation day and telling us to take a break and recharge our spiritual and emotional batteries. Ground, center, and clear to get the chill session started. Give yourself a BIG hug and use today to the best advantage.  We are in the final days of this month and the rest of the week will involve tying up loose ends.  The Angels are telling us “You deserve this small break so use the day to be good to yourself!” 

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 Paramahansa Yogananda teaches us that during times of stress or loss of focus peace can be found through meditation. Remember that meditation can be as simple as taking several deep breaths and centering yourself. Use this as your personal reset button.

The Roman Goddess Venus teaches us to truly appreciate ourselves. She says “You must put loving self-care first. By doing so you become confidently empowered and fully connected to your own divine nature.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Azurite-Malachite, this powerful combination stone helps us to create new energy through focusing on the acceptance of our own power which can also help to reduce our stress levels.

Rose Quartz. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves as it instills inner peace.  It also helps to promote the softer, move loving view that we need to embrace gratitude as it clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. It opens our hearts and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.

Satin Spar Selenite makes it a great meditation stone. It opens the crown chakra to help us receive universal guidance as it calms the emotions and promotes inner peace.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Patiently Waiting: Cat’s Angel Message for June 26, 2022

Patiently Waiting: Cat’s Angel Message for June 26, 2022

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self, etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.

____________________________

Look for guidance and inspiration in small things. it is through this that faith and patience can be found. ~Cat

_____________________________

Today’s Message: Patiently Waiting

626: Today’s message revolves around “divine timing”. Essentially divine timing is like a puzzle and only when all the pieces are in place will things happen. Good things come to those who wait and patience and faith will be your best friends. This is a good time to perform a balance check as it will help those missing puzzle pieces arrive on your doorstep. Remember not to let worries and concerns overwhelm you. Turn these things over to your Spirit Helpers and stay open to the guidance you receive. By embracing patience and setting aside the things you have no control over you will build a stronger foundation for the finished product.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy are an essential part of self-care and creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go of stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. The power of laughter clears and resets or energy field by releasing tension and emotions that have been held in check. This is an important lesson on our path, if it makes your heart sing then it’s the right direction.

The Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate the abundance in its many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to be grateful for.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 Aquamarine balances emotions that can become frayed during the changes that new cycles create. It helps us to move forward and navigate the ebb and flow of life. This stone also shields the aura, aligns the chakras, and promotes communication from the higher realms.

Bloodstone gives us the ability to adapt to the changes that are taking place more easily. It strengthens our intuition and promotes good decision-making. 

Orbicular or Ocean Jasper helps to increase our sense of responsibility and promotes patience. It provides the strength we need to calmly deal with life’s challenges and soothes the emotional stress that can happen when we become impatient for results.

Experiences = Growth: Cat’s Angel Message for June 25, 2022

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self, etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.

____________________________

Look for the clues and lessons in every experience and use them to give you strength. ~Cat

_____________________________

Today’s Message: Experiences = Growth

625: Many of us are currently experiencing heightened sensitivity to what’s going on around us and within us, thanks to the pandemic and current world events. This can cause stress or anxiety in areas and in ways we have not experienced before. Today, the Universe is letting us know that this increased sensitivity will help you in both your personal evolution and the personal changes that you are experiencing. Our first reaction is usually to block things and if you need to do that’s fine for the short term. However, the benefit will come through the experiences themselves and the angels are asking us to go with the flow and allow them to unfold. Understanding and growth will come from unlocking the place where loving-kindness dwells and opening your heart to these experiences will help you to make healthy changes that will benefit you in the long run. Have faith in yourself and in the Universe and remember that you are safe and cared for.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears as he guides us through issues of self-doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress and confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by showing us how to work through obstacles that pop up as he teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self-confidence.

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 Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! 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.”.

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Blue Lace Agate helps us to create and maintain balance during times of stress. It helps us to find our voice when indecision is a factor, allowing us to freely express thoughts and feelings in a peaceful manner.

Malachite. Which helps to support friendships and promotes empathy towards others. It also strengthens our ability to absorb and process information so that we can show our feelings in a positive way. Malachite helps those making aggressive personal or life changes. It brings a sense of adventure to our transformation as it shows us what is blocking our spiritual growth and the best way to move forward.

White Topaz to help increase our connection to the Divine. This gemstone brings feelings of happiness and spiritual awareness.

Inner Journey:

FIND PEACE INSIDE

“All spiritual disciplines are done with a view to still the mind. The perfectly still mind is universal spirit.”
— Swami Ramdas

Getting into the habit of meditating, praying and/or resting daily helps us pull back from our preoccupation with the material world. In silence and solitude, we have an opportunity to pay attention to what’s happening inside rather than outside.

When we do this consistently, we learn to relax and to quiet and detach from our mental chatter and our turbulent emotions. As we begin to witness ourselves in personality, we also begin to experience our soul.

“Meditation may require a lifetime to master, but it will have been a lifetime well spent.” If you want to judge your progress, ask yourself these questions: Am I more loving? Is my judgment sounder? Do I have more energy?Can my mind remain calm under provocation? Am I free from the conditioning of anger, fear, and greed? Spiritual awareness reveals itself as eloquently in character development and selfless action as in mystical states.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“Faith makes the discords of the present the harmonies of the future.”

Just as we have faith that the sun is behind the clouds on a rainy day, we can have faith that whatever problems seems to be presenting themselves at the moment will be resolved. And they will. When we don’t know what to do – we can always have faith.

Hold Your Blessings Close: Cat’s Angel Message for June 24, 2022

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self, etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.

____________________________

True wealth is not found in the accumulation of material things.It is found within your heart. ~Cat

_____________________________

Today’s Message: Hold Your Blessings Close

624: Every day we are blessed with wonderful things that I like to call “Tiny Miracles”. It doesn’t have to be grand or over the top to be a miracle and often it’s the small, everyday ones that mean the most. It’s part of our human nature to want more, however in reality we have what we need. Our vision of true “wealth” lies in our perception of self. If we feel sorry for ourselves our energy takes a nosedive. However, if we hold onto our optimism and look for that “One Good Thing” then the tiny miracles are brought into crystal clear focus. Today, the Universe is reminding us that everyday life is our greatest blessing. Hold these tiny miracles close to your heart so that you draw upon them when the need arises.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel helps to work through ugly or stressful situations and promotes a new positive light on them. Archangel Jophiel helps us to bounce back from negative situations by showing us all the good things in other areas of our lives. Remember that goodness and beauty surround us all the time, so stay open to receiving these blessings.


 The Ascended Master Babaji teaches us that by detaching ourselves from the lure of material things we are able to draw strength from life’s simple pleasures. He also helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. Letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important.

 The Hindu Goddess Kali shows us how to get out of our own way so that we can appreciate life’s true blessings. She tells us “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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.

Chalcedony brings the mind, body, spirit, and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger, or self-doubt. It also promotes good feelings towards self and others.

Rose Quartz brings us inner peace and harmony which is essential to increasing our faith and promoting self-love which is key to positive self-expression and empowerment.  It helps to promote the softer, more loving view that we need to embrace gratitude.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Inner Journey: TUNE INTO THE INNER CRITIC

“A critic is a legless man who teaches running.”
— Channing Pollock

Are you aware of your inner critic? We all have this voice that tells us we are bad, stupid, clumsy, cowardly…. Although its intent is to help us succeed, the harsh self talk of our critic just serves to drain our energy and lower our morale and immune system.

To defuse the inner critic, we need to recognize when the critic is speaking. We need to know that this voice does not necessarily speak for who we really are. This is an old pattern that may no longer be serving us. We want to open to the possibility that the words are not likely true. We can ask ourselves, “Are these words helpful?”

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt

“Abilities wither under faultfinding, blossom with encouragement.”

A Note from the Universe

Ohhhh, to be alive in time and space!

If only those now living could recall what such a prospect once meant to them before their life began. And what it still means to multitudes in the unseen now awaiting their own initiations who, try as they may, can’t even imagine the simple ecstasy of breathing.

To them, you already “have it all” –

Faith
“Faith is the centerpiece of a connected life. It allows us to live by the grace of invisible strands. It is a belief in a wisdom superior to our own. Faith becomes a teacher in the absence of fact.”

-Terry Tempest Williams, Refuge (1991)


“Connected” and aware of our connection, is how we all want to live. Faith is all the evidence we need of that connection. When we turn to faith, we feel it. It is calming, comforting and all-knowing. We can’t always see it with our eyes, but we can feel it with our hearts.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Empress

Everything you touch or talk about today is going to get bigger, so be careful with your words and actions. While today will be easygoing and agreeable, a few days from now something you set in motion today may come back in a bigger form. Watch out for exaggeration, even about good things. Go light on the flattery, and even sincere compliments, since it all may become grander than you intend.

Today’s Message: Checking In With Yourself

623:  Today the angels are asking us an important question: “How do you feel today? Are you peacefully centered or do you feel “wobbly”? Either way, it’s best to take some time to ground, center, and clear. This is an important part of a daily self-care routine. It calms the mind and emotions. It reduces stress and loosens the hold of anxiety. When we are at peace this energy encompasses everything we do and can be felt by those around us. It opens the pathways that allow loving and peaceful vibes to reach our core and helps us to send them out in return. Just breathe and allow peace to fill your entire being.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Embrace the healing energy of Archangel Raphael. This enhances your personal healing abilities so that you are better equipped to help yourself and others when needed. He teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal ourselves and our lives and therefore regain our self-confidence and faith. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude.

  The Ascended Master Buddha is our go-to guy when we feel “wobbly’. He teaches us that the key to happy living requires moderation and balance in all things. This includes the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find that inner peace is ours.

 The Egyptian goddess Bastet (Bast) is not only associated with cats both large and small she is also a goddess of protection and of things that bring pleasure to the senses. She asks you today “What are you passionate about and how are you using that energy? be like a cat today and use your energy wisely. By expending too much you are not honoring your commitment to your own self-care.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 Crazy Lace Agate gently boosts our self-confidence and concentration while reestablishing our overall feelings of wholeness and well-being. It’s an excellent grounding stone that helps to bring balance between our negative and positive emotions.

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.

Ulexite (TV stone). This clear stone helps to burn away mental fog and promotes clarity of vision and thinking. It can be used during meditation and to promote relaxation.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

June Quotes

“After her came jolly June, arrayed
All in green leaves, as he a player were;
Yet in his time he wrought as well as played,
That by his plough-irons mote right well appear.
Upon a crab he rode, that did him bear,
With crooked crawling steps, an uncouth pace,
And backward rode, as bargemen wont to fare,
Bending their force contrary to their face;
Like that ungracious crew which feigns demurest grace.”

Edmund Spenser

Inner Journey:

CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY TODAY

“It is always your next move.”
— Napoleon Hill

The great benefit of heightened awareness is that we have more choice in how we live our lives. At any moment, we can purposefully choose a new experience for ourselves. We can choose to pay attention, breathe more deeply, laugh, rest, play, appreciate, do something different – the possibilities are endless.

Whenever you remember, TAKE YOURSELF OFF AUTO-PILOT and really examine your situation. Take charge and make a choice that will enrich your experience. At the end of the day, reflect on what happened and how you felt when you chose a new line of thought, feeling or action.

“We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us — how we can take it, what we do with it — and that is what really counts in the end.”
— Joseph Fort Newton

“When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.”
— Tin Cup (the movie)

And remember: “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”
— Neil Peart

Faith
“Any anxious thought as to the means to be employed in the accomplishment of our purposes is quite unnecessary. If the end is already secured, then if follows that all the steps leading to it are secured also.”

-Thomas Troward


Faith is knowing. It’s not believing or guessing or hoping, it is KNOWING. It is complete trust in the Divine. There is an organizing power in the Universe. That power is also within each one of us! When we set our goals, the Universe – through us – orchestrates the avenues by which we reach those goals. We don’t need to question, or fret, we just need to have faith and know that it is already done

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps

Today’s Message: Faith, Focus, Reset

622: Our message, as well as our inner peace and our spiritual nature, revolves around both focus and faith. And today the Universe is asking us to stay focused on the now and avoid distractions. When we get busy or overwhelmed our focus turns inward and is lost. Sometimes this is necessary, however, it also tends to pull us away from the things going on around us that require our undivided attention. This is where our faith comes into play. Give your inner worrywart a hug and remind them that things will work out and you both will be fine. Paying attention and remembering to just breathe today will keep you focused on what’s really important so that you don’t miss out!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

 The Ascended Master Paramahansa Yogananda teaches us that during times of stress or loss of focus peace can be found through meditation. Remember that meditation can be as simple as taking several deep breaths and centering yourself. Use this as your personal reset button.

 The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protect ourselves from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says:  ” Personal boundaries are important to your well-being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self-assurance to do what is in your best interest.”

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.

Amber helps us to attain our goals with a clear focus and bestows a positive mental state and helps us find balance, patience, and aids in decision making.

Dalmation Stone. This light-hearted stone is a combination of quartz, microline, and black tourmaline. It instills feelings of safety as it helps us to reconnect with our playful side which is important to our emotional health and itt transforms outdated thinking during times when we feel stuck and enables our forward progress by encouraging a fresh perspective This stone also promotes grounding and enhances our connection to Mother Earth.It reminds us that we are a part of her as well as being spiritual beings on a very human journey
