Anubis was the jackal-headed Egyptian god of death and embalming, and is said to be the son of Osiris by Nepthys, although in some legends his father is Set. It is the job of Anubis to weigh the souls of the dead, and determine whether they were worthy of admittance to the underworld. As part of his duties, he is the patron of lost souls and orphans.

Individuologist: Chakra Stones and Crystals for Deep Healing

Perhaps, you are already familiar with the 7 chakra points, right? As pipelines of cosmic energy, these chakra points serve as gateways for us to be empowered. However, from time to time, these chakra points encounter problems. For instance, an imbalanced diet or even sleeping pattern can distort the natural flow of energy. Similarly, problems in the office or in relationships can also contribute to the loss of proper flow.

MNN: Black-throated finch wins 2019 Australian bird of the year

The black-throated finch has been voted “bird of the year” in Australia for 2019, helping draw attention to the species’ decline as human activities increasingly threaten its habitat.

Inner Journey: 

APPRECIATION

“You can never get to peace and inner security without first acknowledging all of the good things in your life. If you’re forever wanting and longing for more without first appreciating things the way they are, you’llstay in discord.”
— Doc Childre and Howard Martin

Develop an attitude of gratitude. We discover a sense of wholeness as we appreciate both the small and big things in our lives. And it really helps to remember to appreciate ourselves. Appreciation is more than just acceptance — it’s respect and admiration. Let go of criticism and self-abuse.

“Generally, appreciation means some blend of thankfulness, admiration, approval, and gratitude. In the financial world, something that ‘appreciates’ grows in value. With the power tool of appreciation, you get the benefit of both perspectives: as you learn to be consistently thankful and approving, your life will grow in value.”
— Doc Childre and Howard Martin

Conversation

“Must we always talk for victory, and never once for truth, for comfort, and joy?”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Conversation is a way for us to connect with people. And yet, how often do we feel like we need to impress someone, or demonstrate somehow that we have important opinions? If we could just drop that, and think more about connecting through Truth, about sharing ourselves rather than our “stuff” – then some meaningful conversation can take place. And we can experience that comfort and joy that leads to real friendship.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess

Let intuition be your guide today and you won’t go too far wrong. If something doesn’t need to be done or delivered instantly, take your time and let events, situations, and people claim the time and attention they seem to want. Things want to sort themselves out for you, in the best ways. Don’t introduce complications. Be decisive when necessary but otherwise step up, too, and be pleasantly surprised.

Thought For The Day: Jan. 24, 2019 “Dark and Light”

Happy Thursday,

Life isn’t always sunshine, flowers and unicorns. It contains swamps, quicksand and dark forests as well. To know ourselves better we must be willing to face these dark places with courage. The darkness teaches us many valuable lessons and helps us to appreciate the good things that we have and that lie ahead.

MBG: Nobody Can Teach You Self-Awareness. Here’s How To Teach Yourself

I was raised in a communal environment—a tight community of women who bonded together to raise their children collectively. One of our regular practices was what the moms called Circle, and it centered around dream analysis. One person would explain a dream she’d had, and the rest of us would explore what that dream meant to us.

Daily Good: Odes to Ordinary Things

Inspired by the gift of a book of “Odes to Common Things” by Pablo Neruda, the editors at A Network for Grateful Living, extended an invitation to submit odes to “ordinary things.” The response was happy and immediate. Their inbox steadily filled with poems celebrating weeds, streetlights, shoes and crickets. There were love letters to a blender bottle, an acorn, slippers, an iPad — even to the veins on the top of someone’s feet! What follows is a selection of the poems they received. Poems that will delight your heart, and open your eyes to the myriad wonders that surround us all, waiting to be seen and celebrated. { read more }

Be The Change

Look around you and let your eyes come to rest on the very first thing you see. Take a moment to really “see” this thing in front of you. Write a small three-line poem of gratitude for the existence of this extraordinarily ordinary piece of the universe. Then share your poem with someone today

MNN: How to make rose water

You only need two ingredients to make rose water: rose petals and water. Yet, a four-ounce bottle of rose water can cost $10 or more. Making your own rose water is easy to do, and if you grow your own roses (or have a friend who can give you some roses) it’s free to make. (And even if you do buy some roses, it will still be less expensive.)

EarthSky News: Fight climate change with more swamps

“Drain the swamp” has long meant getting rid of something distasteful. Actually, the world needs more swamps – and bogs, fens, marshes and other types of wetlands.

These are some of the most diverse and productive ecosystems on Earth. They also are underrated but irreplaceable tools for slowing the pace of climate change and protecting our communities from storms and flooding.

Patheos-Pagan: Everything Is Important But Everything Can’t Be First

Long time readers know I like to rant against the Evil Sorcerers of Madison Avenue – the advertising executives who do their best to convince you your life is worthless unless you buy what they’re selling. They use every magical technique short of demon invocation, and I’m not completely sure they don’t use that too.

Relationships

“Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others.”

-Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility (1811)

There are some people we just “click” with. Maybe it’s love at first sight, maybe it’s some kind of karmic recognition. But when this happens, it is usually a sign to pay attention – that this is an important relationship. We are here for each other. There is so much for us to accomplish together here in this space and time, and we are brought together to do just that

-Lissa Coffey

Make It Original: Cat’s Angel Message for June 11, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 

Make It Original: Cat’s Angel Message for June 11, 2018 

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


If you copy then it is not self-expression. – Michael Schenker


611: Today we continue to acknowledge and embrace the positives in our lives. Remember that your thoughts help to create your reality so take the necessary steps to make it something amazing. Look to your creative side and make some upgrades to your surroundings. Declutter, paint the kitchen or maybe revamp your personal space. Whatever you choose to do make sure that it’s a reflection of your inner sparkle and light. Allow your creative side to partner with your intuition. If your intuition leads you out of your comfort zone today is a great day to take that step towards expression and empowerment. Surround your workings today with gratitude and appreciation and extend them to those you love as it creates more love to keep the energy flowing!


Touch base with Archangel Jophiel again today. Let her be your tour guide into the realms of beauty. The Hindu God Krishna brings us both joy and happiness. He helps us to see how blessed we truly are as he awakens out spirits to the good things life has to offer and the Greek Goddess Iris teaches us that miracles of beauty can happen in a 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.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the gentle energy of  Seraphinite that helps to clear the heart chakra and  opens us to love on all levels, Green Amethyst encourages us to look inward and embrace self discovery and Rose Quartz to promote self love which is key to positive self expression and empowerment.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Bountiful Gifts: Cat’s Angel Message for December 28 , 2017 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

  Bountiful Gifts: Cat’s Angel Message for December 28 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your lif

I am open to receiving the generous gifts of Spirit.
I hold no expectations or demands on the form, the timing,
or the color of the wrapping on the bountiful gifts of Spirit
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

1228: Abundance is something that people ask for quite often. It comes in many forms like love, friendship, spiritual, material gain and money. It also comes from sources both expected and unexpected. 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.
  • 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!

The Hindu god Ganesh helps to remove all obstacles from our path to receiving abundance. He also shows us the importance of getting out of our own way to promote positive flow. Green Tara helps us with emergency aid. There times when we really need this kind of help with supplying the basic necessities. Archangel Raziel helps us during the manifestation process and the Ascended Master Buddha teaches us how to achieve the balance that is necessary to keep things flowing smoothly. Our Sacred Stone for today is Sunstone. This stone  provides a link to benevolent gods of luck and good fortune. It helps to increase  feelings of self worth and overall confidence while encouraging optimism.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
