Today’s Message: Letting Ourselves Receive

68: Generating a positive flow of abundance is relatively simple once we have a basic understanding of how it works. To create and keep this flow moving it’s important to balance our giving and receiving activities. We must first give of ourselves through time, money, energy, love, etc. By sending good things out it helps to create new opportunities and experiences as it circles back to us. In order to receive these blessings, we must allow ourselves to receive them. Too often people refuse or fight this process. Grateful and gracious receiving is an important part of the flow circle and is only achieved by balancing giving and receiving. Today we are being asked to open our heart and spirit and allow ourselves to receive. Remember, what we send out comes back and will provide positive energy that will grow with each cycle.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of what we have outgrown as well as our limiting self-beliefs and fears all of which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want.

The 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 Celtic Goddess Aeracura shows us the way to expand and share our loving energy. She tells us, ” Playfulness and a carefree spirit are the heart of true abundance. By sharing of yourselves it creates an energy that spreads and grows.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Yellow Jasper helps to provide clarity on both mental and emotional levels. It starts us off in a positive direction while helping us to find realistic and workable solutions that help us to attain our goals.

Pink Kunzite is a feel good stone that helps us to go with the flow. It brings feelings of peace as it connects us to universal love as it removes obstacles from our path and promotes communication on all levels.

Larimar helps to remove self-imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self-sabotaging behavior by bringing out the best in us. It helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also 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.

Today’s Message: Essential Balance Check

64: This month we turn our focus to maintaining our balance. Today the universe is asking us to check our balance in the material realm. There are certain material items that we need to live, food, clothing, shelter, and other basic necessities. Today we are being reassured us that all of our needs are being met and will continue to be met in the future. However, the angels cannot do it all for us so we must do our part by adding our own energy and focus. This will help to open new doors that will increase our flow of abundance. Express your gratitude to the Angels, the Divine, and the Universe and welcome the blessings that are waiting for you!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel gently guides us through the manifestation process so that we are more adept at creating what we need and what we want. Remember that NEED and WANT are two separate things and by concentrating on need first all else will fall into place.

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 Roman Goddess Vesta who oversees hearth and home. She helps us to clear space (both in our physical home and our inner home) to make room for new things and teaches us the value of letting go of what we no longer need. ” If something does not make your heart sing put it where it belongs or set it free. This will clear your inner and outer sacred space. Then open the doors and invite the new blessings inside.”

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.

Celestite which promotes spiritual development and teaches us to reach for personal enlightenment and helps us to find peace within. It also helps us to embrace new experiences while blending instinct and intellect to create balance and harmony while providing strength and calm.

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

58: Today the Universe asking us to re-evaluate our current, overall situation.

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

____________________________

. As we walk the path of gratitude pay attention to the blessings that grow along the way. ~Cat

_____________________________

428: Abundance comes in many forms (material gain, money, friends, love, and necessities) to name just a few. However, we quite often find ourselves concentrating on only a single form of abundance. The key to true abundance lies in being open to it and inviting ALL forms into your life. While we all need specific help at times staying open will always serve us best. The Angels are telling us ” Do not place limits and conditions on our requests. These things keep us from supplying you with the steady flow of abundance that we are capable of providing.” By staying open and allowing ourselves to receive we find that we are richer on all levels which makes us more complete. Reap the benefits of your request by simply asking for blessings of abundance on all levels!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of what we have outgrown as well as our limiting self beliefs and fears all of which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want.

The 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 Hindu Goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit so that new information can be sent to you. “

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Citrine. This happy and sunny crystal draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action. We can also use Citrine to help us sift through information and analyze situations so that we can move forward with positive intent.

Sunstone brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. It brings out our natural optimism, self-confidence and promotes our natural flow of abundance and is linked to all benevolent deities and brings good fortune and luck.

Daily Good: Slowing Down

To slow down is to be taken into the soul of things.

  • Terry Tempest Williams –

Slowing Down

This meditative film brings us on a journey of slowing down so that we can understand the rhythms and the circles of life, in order to more fully connect with the big circle, “the slow breathing of the earth.” It reminds us to slow the pace of our lives, even for a few minutes at a time, so that we are able to feed the person inside. The wise narrators charge us to be aware of the phases of the moon and of what season it is, so that we can be present and in the moment as we create our lives. { read more }

A Note from the Universe

Of course you sometimes feel alone, confused, and frightened!

You come from an ancient spiritual family of the finest imaginable lineage, loved and respected by all.

They threw the happiest parties, knew the happiest souls, and lived in mansions of solid gold. They were so adored and respected throughout the cosmos that whatever they wanted, they received twelve times over.

You, however… Well, it’s like when it came time for your education and the furthering of your divine awareness, you just had to go far, far away. To the most remote little school ever heard of, deep within the jungles of time and space, called Earth.

Created quite the stir, you did. Until, of course, you began sending home postcards from the sleep state. Now, as you might have guessed, they toast your name every single night in total awe of your courage.

Me too.

Fate
“Every human being is the artificer of his own fate – Events, circumstances, etc., have their origin in ourselves. They spring from seeds which we have sown.”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)


We are more powerful, and more creative, than we realize. And our power doesn’t come from outside of us – it’s not from our position at work, or our wealth, or our supply of weapons. Those are just symbols, and they come and go. Our real power comes from within, from our faith, our determination, the inner strength that we have developed from our experiences. When we summon up this power we can achieve anything

Inner Journey: DON’T THINK AWAY YOUR FEELINGS

“When emotions are managed by the heart, they heighten your awareness of the world around you and add sparkle to life. The result is new intelligence and a new view of life.”
— Doc Childre and Howard Martin

How do you intellectualize your emotions?

Many of us live so much in our heads that we intellectualize our emotions. We analyze, rationalize and explain them away so quickly that we don’t actually experience them.

Learn to honour your emotions at all times by being willing to feel them. Of course, you may need to exercise some judgment over how and when you express them.

“Learning to be aware of feelings, how they arise and how to use them creatively so they guide us to happiness, is an essential lifetime skill.”
— Joan Borysenko

Sleep
“Sleep is when all the unsorted stuff comes flying out as from a dustbin upset in a high wind.”

-William Golding


Ah! The dreams that we dream! Some outrageous fantasies – some bizarre, seemingly unrelated scenarios pieced together to resemble an unfinished puzzle by Salvador Dali. Just as the body needs rest to repair itself, the mind needs rest, too, and it works things out in our dreams. It doesn’t have to make sense – somehow it registers and we figure out just what needs to be done. These little glimpses into our psyche can lead to great wisdom… or it could just be an evening’s entertainment!

Daily Tarot: The Hermit

It might be a busy day, but try to make some time for yourself. Any time you spend meditating or settling your mind will be time well spent. It doesn’t have to be spent sitting around and being idle all day. Staring pensively into that cup of tea for a few moments can be equally beneficial. Calm your mind, and your heart, and make it an at-peace day.

Think Big, Dream Big: Cat’s Angel Message for December 29, 2020

Think Big, Dream Big: Cat’s Angel Message for December 29, 2020

 December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.

Clearing away the old makes room for the new! ~Cat

_____________________________

1229: As we enter the final days of December and get ready to say goodbye to the old year we are being given this gentle reminder. By working with the Universe and it’s helpers we learn that we are powerful creators in our own right. While we regularly receive assistance and guidance from people, our spiritual helpers and through opportunities presented to us, in reality WE are the creating force that ultimately makes things happen. It’s a combination of faith and self confidence that boosts our manifestation power and helps us create a new reality and opens the doors to new forms of abundance. Today we are being asked to embrace and acknowledge our divine partnership as well as our power to create for ourselves. Think BIG, Dream BIG and keep CREATING!

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 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 Hindu Goddess Kali is a dark mother and goddess of death. Each time we let go of something that no longer serves us we are in truth embracing a “little death” and fear often accompanies the letting go process. One of Kali’s greatest lessons is through our worst fears lies the freedom we gain in conquering them. She says: “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:

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. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making.

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.

Okenite helps clear away obstacles and teaches us the important lesson that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when we allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Abundance is everywhere! Stay open and let it flow into your life. ~ Cat

_____________________________

1228: Abundance is something that people ask for quite often (particularly this year). It comes in many forms like love, friendship, spiritual, material gain and of course money. Abundance also comes from sources both expected and unexpected and there are several things to remember about generating abundance:

*In order for it grow we must acknowledge what we have with appreciation.


*We must do our part to make it happen. The Angels will help but they won’t do it for us.


*We must be open to both giving and receiving.


*Don’t fixate on on area or one thing. These kind of demands actually limit how the Universe can help you. While it may happen eventually you will be missing out on a lot more than you realize.


Today the Universe is asking us to think about HOW we ask for blessings of abundance. Instead of making stipulations try asking for “Abundance on all levels”. This allows us to receive more blessings instead of just one. By staying open to all the possibilities it stimulates a steady flow of good things which makes us richer on all levels. Remember………….. don’t sell yourself short or shut yourself off!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Ariel helps us to embrace our own divine magick which strengthens our manifestation process. Since she works with the earth and environment (nature angels and sprite too) she can help those unfamiliar with the Sacred Feminine work connect with her.

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:

Citrine. This happy and sunny crystal draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action. We can also use Citrine to help us sift through information and analyze situations so that we can move forward with positive intent. Citrine also helps us go with the flow and encourages us to explore all options so that we can make the best decisions for our journey.

Larimar helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also 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.

Sunstone brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. It brings out our natural optimism, self confidence and promotes our natural flow of abundance as it soothes our fear of change and the accompanying stress that change can bring. Sunstone has a strong connection to light and helps to harness the re-energizing power of the sun during meditation and everyday life. It is linked to all benevolent deities and brings good fortune and luck.

Patience and Faith: Cat’s Angel Message for October 29, 2020

 Patience and Faith: Cat’s Angel Message for October 29, 2020

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, and insights. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.

Good things really do come to those who wait. Be patient and let things fall into place. ~Cat

1029: Universal abundance comes in many forms and from many different sources. Sometimes we can see them happening right away while other times we wonder if our requests have even been heard. Our keywords for today are “Patience” and “Faith”. If you feel that you have lost something or something is missing remember that the Universe supplies us with everything we need to live richer and more fulfilling lives. Know that behind the scenes the cosmic wheels are turning and things are falling into place. So be patient and have faith that things ARE materializing. Stay strong and focused, if you are unsure just ask for assistance. Let go of doubt and open yourself to living in the now. New adventures are on the horizon and you need to be ready when they arrive!

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 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 Greek goddess Nike, Lady of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things that we have accomplished. By acknowledging them we can increase our faith in ourselves as a creator. She says: “Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Tree Agate (Dendritic) to strengthen your connection to the plant kingdom and help you to enjoy each moment. It is also known as the stone of plentitude and promotes abundance while showing us the “wealth” we already have.

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.

Copper is a conductor that moves energy and helps us communicate with the higher realms. It can also increase self esteem and self awareness which are essential to embracing our divine spark and our powers of manifestation.
