Gratitude Is A Mindset: Cat’s Angel Message for April 18, 2022

Gratitude is like a hug that fills you with loving energy. ~Cat


Today’s Message: Gratitude Is A Mindset

418: Being grateful for what we have may sound like a common or boring theme for the day. The truth is that this mindset should be embraced every day. There are times when we backslide into negative patterns and we concentrate or worry about the things that we don’t have or can’t have. These patterns place limits on our ability to manifest the good/necessary things in life. However, when we meet each day with the attitude of gratitude and look for life’s tiny miracles things flow and fall into place. Allow your gratitude to shine through today and let good things unfold and happen!

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 Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”. By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow which can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

The Greek Goddess Iris teaches us that miracles of beauty can happen in an instant. She says “Open your eyes, both physical and spiritual, then open your heart and allow the divine light to fill you. This will help you see the blessings and the beauty that are right before your eyes. Take nothing for granted.”

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.

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.

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.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

The Bright Side: Cat’s Angel Message for August 17, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!

I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow. – Abraham Lincoln

817:  Our power of positive thought comes into play today. it helps to propel us forward and aids our overall creation and manifestation process. The angels are telling us to pay attention to our thoughts today because they will be the key to unlock new doors along our path. Be ready to make the most of what will be offered, hesitation may cause you to miss out. Remember, whether the offerings are a new crop of tiny miracles or the whole enchilada it is our positive and creative mind that will help us to achieve our goals!

The angel Barakiel promotes a change of attitudes. He shows us the way to receive with a grateful heart so that we are open to the blessings that come to us. The Ascended Master Saint Germain surrounds us with loving protection. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things and the bright energy of the  Celtic Goddess Brigid burns away what what stands in our way of embracing our divine potential. She says “Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way.”

Our Sacred Stones for today are: Rose Quartz helps to give our emotions a lift by cleansing and clearing them of negative impurities. Sky blue Larimar promotes peace, love and tranquility as it helps you to connect with the divine realms and Lepidolite helps us to focus on the important things and filter out any distractions that come knocking.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Mind Body Green: How Being Present In Your Grief Can Help You Move Beyond It

The fabric of humanity is made of many threads of emotional experience. One of those is grief. None of us are exempt from the grips of grief, and at some point on the journey of life, we’ll be faced with the death of a dear friend, parent, pet, spouse, or child. And actually, it’s this shared sense of grief that exists as the common denominator between human hearts. Grief penetrates the depths of our hearts, sinking into the recesses of our inner life. The path of mindfulness offers us a powerful way to turn toward our darkness to reignite our light for living.

Patheos-Pagan: Building a Home Shrine

I spent the weekend building a home shrine. All this time and I’ve never really had one, at least not intentionally. There are plenty of sacred spaces in the house, don’t get me wrong. I have special tabletops and shelves that tend to accumulate meaningful objects, and I have a working altar in my bedroom. Our coven’s altar is erected fresh every time we have circle. I also maintain an altar to Freya, so it’s not that I’m necessarily lacking in sacred space.

Inner Journey: Imagine Your ideal Future

“Your imagination is your preview to life’s coming attractions.”
— Albert Einstein

If you were to create an ideal future for yourself, what would it be like?

All things that now exist in form were once simply ideas in consciousness. We each hold the power to manifest different circumstances for our lives. If we wish to manifest a new reality for ourselves, we need to consistently focus our imagination on the ideals we seek to realize.

Remember to explore your ideal in terms of qualities, not people or things. What qualities do you most want in life? Freedom? Respect? Playfulness? Abundance? Whatever qualities you seek, imagine experiencing them now and be open to new ways to discover those qualities appearing in your life.

“Change is created by those whose imaginations are bigger than their circumstances”
— Unknown source

MNN: Why ‘lazy’ lawn mowers are heroes for bees

There’s no shame in an unmowed lawn. Not only can wild yards and gardens look better than commonly believed, but cutting back on cutting grass can save significant time, energy and money. According to a new study, it could even help save bees.

Led by ecologist Susannah Lerman at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the U.S. Forest Service, the study examined how homeowners can boost bee habitat with their lawn-care habits. Mowing every other week seems to be the sweet spot.
