Daily Good: Pearl Fryer’s Unusual Legacy

Just a mile from Interstate 20 near the heart of South Carolina there is a living topiary art sculpture garden created by Pearl Fryar. The topiary that resides here along with Fryer and his family is extraordinary and still challenges the minds of horticulture experts who claim that these plants aren’t supposed to be able to look like they do.

The mission of the Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden, Inc. is to “support and preserve the artistic and horticultural legacy of Pearl Fryar, to encourage public appreciation of the garden, and to provide opportunities for artistic and educational enrichment and enjoyment.”

Elephant Journal: A Gentle Reminder for the Sensitive Souls who feel lost in Today’s World.

We can be wise and unsure.
We can be messy and hopeful.

We can be kind and angry, aware and unsure, depleted and determined.
With tattered edges and the bare, aching soles of our well-traveled feet, we can walk through fire on hot, shattered glass.

MNN: Birth of sun bear cub is a first for the U.K.

Two sun bears once snatched by poachers in Cambodia just had their first cub at the Chester Zoo. It’s the first sun bear born in the United Kingdom.

The cub’s parents — mother Milli and father Toni — were taken from the wild when they were young by illegal wildlife traders who killed their mothers and kept them as pets.

Well, why just imagine it? Its not a major project to plant your own thyme lawn, and once it’s done you’ll never tire of the pleasure it will give you during the summer months.

Music

“Music has charms to soothe a savage breast,
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.” -William Congreve (1670-1729)

No, that’s not a typo. We’ve all heard it as “savage beast” but it really was said “savage breast.” And I think it is more effective that way. A savage breast says to me, “an angry heart,” and I can see that as being hard and cold. There is a lot of power there, but Congreve uses the word “charms” instead. Interesting… the power of music comes not from sheer strength but from its charms, from its subtle, gentle effect on our soul.”

It’s About Personal Truth: Cat’s Angel Message for July 1, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 

It’s About Personal Truth: Cat’s Angel Message for July 1, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


About most subjects, there is not “The Truth;” there is merely one’s personal truth. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


71:  The month of July is dedicated to all forms of life path work. As we navigate life we find that everyone has an opinion about how, when, where and why we should do things. The truth is that the only opinion that matters is our own and we are the only ones who really knows what’s in our hearts. However, well meaning people (and sometimes not so well meaning) will try to push us off our path simply because they don’t agree with or understand what we need.  During this new cycle the Universe will be helping us by providing direction and guidance that will help us on our journey. You will know that you are headed in the right direction when it makes your spirit sing and your heart soar!

Archangel Michael can help in all aspects of your life’s path and purpose. He understands that while following our path is exciting it can also be a little scary when we head off in new directions. He wants us to know that he is always here to provide protection and help us find our courage. As we navigate our path it’s normal for us to have doubt and fears, the Ascended Master El Morya shields us from our own negative thinking. He also helps us to stay centered and grounded in our faith which in turn helps us to make better decisions, and the Hawaiian Goddess Pele teaches us how to keep things in perspective, she says  “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stone for the day is Amethyst. This crystal  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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Don’t Block the Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for June 25, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Don’t Block the Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for June 25, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Pain is a difficult companion. There’s no getting around that. But, if pain is to be a companion, searching and discovering your own best ways to travel with that pain will lead you to the joy that you long to have. They are your paths, your ways and while my experience and the experiences of others may inspire you, ultimately it will be the choices you discover and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy in the midst of your challenges. – Mary Anne Radmacher


625: Many of us are currently experiencing  heightened intuition and sensitivity to what’s going on  around us and within us. 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 manifestation and in the personal changes that you are experiencing. Our first reaction is usually  to block things and if you need to do that that’s fine. However the benefit will come the actual experiences that occur. By unlocking the place where loving kindness dwells and opening your heart 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 care for.


Archangel Michael is the go-to guy for protection. His clear, powerful energy acts as a shield that helps to buffer energies directed at us. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction. The Ascended Master Saint Germain often works with Michael. 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 Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills so that we get the information we need without the unnecessary backwash. She tells us “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Amethyst.  This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies, which it transmutes into something more positive while dispelling anxiety and fear It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making. It is also connected to Archangel Michael which allows us to feel his energy and the energy of divine love.

Using Your Pilot Light: Cat’s Angel Message for June 15, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Using Your Pilot Light: Cat’s Angel Message for June 15, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Some struggle is healthy. If you can embrace it rather than be angry, you can use it as your pilot light. – Damon Wayans 


615:  Rising above negative thoughts/feeling and  indulging in self care are on the universal agenda today. There are times when rising above feels like a monumental task. This can be  especially true when there are negative things going on around us. When we experience negativity in any form it makes an impression. We get angry, freaky or we absorb it causing a harmful dis-ease that festers inside. Sounds pretty gnarly right? I mean who really wants to go on someone else’s negative roller coaster ride, or your own for that matter. This trap is easy to get caught in and we’ve all been there. The angels advice is pretty clear on this. “The best thing that you can do for yourself is to acknowledge the situation and surround it with healing energy. Then send it to us to deal with. Surround yourself with positive people and energy. Make your own self care one of your top priorities. Remember, you cannot be healthy for others if you are not healthy for yourself!”


Our helpers for today are the Archangels Michael and Zadkiel. They work together to replace  any and all negative energies that we come into contact with. You can call on Michael for protection when you feel overwhelmed with the “energies” of others, he will keep you safe both physically and emotionally. Gaining his assistance is a s easy as “Archangel Michael please help me now!” Zadkiel is the healing half of this duo. He helps us get rid of the emotional residue from negative encounters and encourages us down the path to self care.


Our Sacred Stones for today include Amethyst which is the stone of Archangel Michael. It is a powerful protective stone that works to stop energy attacks. Smoky Quartz dissolves negative emotions. Sunstone teaches us to nurture ourselves as it clears all the chakras and brings both light and energy.

Releasing The Emotional Charge: Cat’s Angel Message for May 14, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Releasing The Emotional Charge: Cat’s Angel Message for May 14, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


Learn to become still. And to take your attention away from what you don’t want, and all the emotional charge around it, and place your attention on what you wish to experience. – Michael Beckwith


514: Grounding, clearing and centering is important to our emotional, mental and spiritual health. There are no rules on how often it should be done. But sometimes we need to perform this more often due to stress, major upheavals or changes. Since we are currently working with changes the Angels are telling us that now might be a good time. This 3 step process helps to keep us balanced and promotes peace and harmony within ourselves and with the Universe. Now that the weather is warmer I suggest “earthing”. Going barefoot in the garden or grass is a wonderful way get grounded and to connect with the energy of Mother Earth. Allow yourself to “root” into the earth and just release, feel the sun on your face and let healing begin!


Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble with grounding yourself. He gently helps us in putting aside our worries and cares. Archangel Michael can remove all psychic hooks, lines and cords that have been attached to your energy field. By simply asking him to do this is frees up your energy and promotes balance and sense of great peace and the Celtic Goddess Nemetona who teaches us that nature is the best place to recharge, she says ” I am the spirit of the sacred grove. I invite you to worship in my temple and feel the heartbeat of nature. This communion can heal a weary and battered soul and replenish your spirit with hope and divine peace.”


Our Sacred Stones are Moss Agate which enhances and strengthens our connection to the earth and Amethyst which is associated with Michael. Amethyst is a powerful protective stone and it gets you connected with Archangel Michael. It will also calm and quiet internal chatter and “monkey mind”, which in turn enables us to relax and allow the grounding and balancing to take place.

Welcome To The Adventure: Cat’s Angel Message for May 5, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Welcome To The Adventure: Cat’s Angel Message for May 5, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


Life is a grand adventure – enjoy the ride. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


55:  When Change shows at our house in his beat up truck and tells us to get in you better buckle up because we’re going for a ride baby! To clear the way and make things easier start by letting go of anything that is no longer working for you or that you have outgrown. (People, activities, thoughts, old resentments etc.) Give these things over to the angels, then visualize packing up all the old things into a bag and tossing it off a bridge. I kid you not this visualization is truly empowering! The clearing away process creates the necessary space for better things. Remember, you deserve good things and life is too short to hang on to things that no longer bring you peace and joy!


Our helper’s today include the Greek God Apollo who helps us heal all emotional wounds and shows us how to replace unforgiveness with compassionate understanding. Archangel Jeremiel oversees life changes and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve spiritual growth to assist in letting go and the Hindu God Ganesh removes all obstacles from our path so that we can move forward.


Our Sacred Stones are Amethyst which promotes clear decision making and realistic goals while helping us move forward and create new beginnings. Selenite heals negativity and fear while cleansing your entire being, it also promotes Divine communication and Labradorite which is a companion crystal to change. It gives strength and helps us to persevere.

The Perfect Day: Cat’s Angel Message for May 4, 2018

The Perfect Day: Cat’s Angel Message for May 4, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


Every day is the perfect day to ask yourself questions about your life goals, and how you plan to address those goals. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


54:  Today the universe is reassuring us that the changes we are experiencing are for the best. Even though things in our lives  may not be perfect change draws new blessings and people who make it interesting and help us to grow. These periods of growth are an important part of life and the truth is that we are all striving to be the best person that we can be. Remember, the key is to go with the flow  and try not to fight or resist the changes taking place. Just  do your best to allow them to happen and work with them, making the best choices that you can. The Angels and the Divine are here to help and support us during them important personal transitions.


Archangel Michael is the go to angel. he surrounds us with protection all the time including during periods of change. He provides direction when we need it and the motivation and commitment to see things through as well as helping us to clear space for new things.


The Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She teaches us that must be fully embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Changes inspire and encourage us to transcend our self imposed limitations and the Ascended Master Solomon helps us to take what we are given and make the most of it, creating the necessary stepping stones we need to move ahead.


Our Sacred Stones for today include Amethyst (the crystal of Michael)  which  has a powerful protective energy. It guards against all forms of psychic attack and takes that energy and transmutes it into positive vibrations and it provides focus and calms the mind so that we can proceed with positive momentum. Labradorite is associated with Oya. It is a good companion crystal that provides the strength and perseverance needed to navigate the winds of change.
