Obstacles: Cat’s Angel Message for January 13, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them… they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight. – Orison Swett Marden


113: Our message today is about obstacles in the form of blessings in disguise. These pesky things can pop anywhere and at any time. The Universe is reminding us that the key to dealing with them lies in our ability to adapt to the changes they bring.  Remember that every obstacle brings a lesson or a series of lessons with it. Some are life lessons and some are karmic lessons. Either way change is always an important component which can bring  new opportunities and personal growth if we are willing to work with it and not fight against it. Shine the light of perspective on the situation and look for that  “one good thing”  to help you get started. Going with the flow and learning to adapt will be your greatest asset now. Our spiritual helpers are here to guide and assist us so ask for help if you need it.


Archangel Michael helps us to find the courage and direction that we need to work through any obstacles that pop up.  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 Kuthumi  encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to set aside things we have no control over. This helps us to adapt to circumstances successfully.  And the Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change so that w ecan navigate the obstacles in our way. She says ” My child change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.” 


Our Sacred Stone for today is Okenite which can be used to help clear away obstacles and teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start and helps replace bad habits with good ones. Okenite also helps us understand and work through karmic lessons so that they are resolved.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Stairway Of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for January 8, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Life is a series of steps. Things are done gradually. Once in a while there is a giant step, but most of the time we are taking small, seemingly insignificant steps on the stairway of life. – Ralph Ransom


18:  A new year means new beginnings, new hopes and new dreams. But new things can sit in the wings if you haven’t done the  necessary work needed to take the next steps. Taking ALL the steps even the baby ones are important in our quest for personal evolution. Creating, generating new blessings is the goal.  Today the Universe is telling us that it’s our time to shine that it’s time to get moving….. NOW. Finish up old business to make room for new opportunities. Allow your inner wisdom to guide you. Remember that you already know what you need to let go of so find your strength and courage to do the work to make it happen. Free yourself and your energy to become the amazing creator that you are meant to be!


Archangel Michael helps us find the courage and motivation that we need to tie up loose ends and finish things. And as always he surrounds us with his divine protection.  The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps us to diffuse any unpleasant situations that arise during times of personal change. He works with color  so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant. The Greek goddess Persephone teaches us how to liberate ourselves from the things that are holding us back so that we can forge ahead on a new path. This lady has both an iron will and compassion. She tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark places we often find treasures we had forgotten. These treasure can form the foundations that you need.”


Our Sacred Stone is Sugilite which is sometimes called Archangel Michael’s stone. This is a stone of spiritual love and awareness and promotes Divine interaction and communication. Sugilite also encourages positive thinking and teaches us to live our truth and to trust our intuition.

Using Your power: Cat’s Angel Message for January 3, 2019

Using Your power: Cat’s Angel Message for January 3, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Your word is the power that you have to create – don Miguel Ruiz


13: We are powerful creators  and as such we have the ability to create our reality and the life we truly want. Through our beliefs, actions and thoughts our power begins to manifest. As we step up and allow ourselves to initiate control of our destiny we learn and grow. This brings new experiences as we gain understanding of our own inner wisdom. This creation process isn’t easy and sometimes isn’t for sissies. However, by having faith in ourselves (and in the Universe) we are able to handle these tough decisions and situations by going with the flow rather than fighting against them. Today the Universe is telling us that some turbulence may be headed our way. Remember that when these things happen new blessings are sure to follow. Try to go with the flow and trust in your inner guidance system. By doing so you will be able to create a more (and better) choices which allows you to take action at the right time.


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 guides us through rough times and sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction.  The Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us on our life path and provides direction when needed. His “big brother” energy 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. Nike, the Greek goddess of victory and success help us to embrace our accomplishments. She tells us “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!”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Chrysocolla. This powerful blue-green stone helps us during periods of change and challenging times. It brings smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity and calm. It helps us to be more self aware and promotes self confidence that inspires both creativity and motivation.

Make Every Day The Best: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Make Every Day The Best: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31, 2018 

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


Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


1231:  As the old year comes to a close we are receiving a message and a big hug from our Angels and the Ascended Masters.

“You are amazing beings and you have grown in ways you can’t even begin to imagine over the past year. Enter into this new cycle by shifting your thoughts to a new level of love and peace. This will be essential to your continued growth in the new year. Stay focused and confident and above all continue to have faith in yourself. By living your truth and claiming your authentic self you are fully capable of creating the life you desire for both you and your loved ones. Creation begins with you and spreads to those around you and continues outward like ripples in a pond. Don’t be afraid to enter the new year with a new outlook on life. We are here and ready to help you all you need do is ask.”


Archangel Michael is there to offer support as we navigate our path. He helps by pointing us in the right direction and provides a boost of self confidence. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to focus on our goals. He teaches us how to avoid distractions and that sometimes it is pure stubbornness that propels us forward. The Hawaiian goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and our sense of purpose. As a goddess of empowerment she teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. She reminds you that  “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 Stones for today include Amethyst, which is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies, which it transmutes into something more positive. It dispels anxiety and fear as 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. And Lava Stone which is associated with Pele. This stone is a powerful symbol of our own energy. It is a stone of rebirth and helps us to burn away unneeded layers so we can initiate new growth.

Peace & Joy: Cat’s Angel Message for December 25, 2018 

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


Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts, cause your mind to dwell on peace and joy. – Ernest Holmes


1225:  Today the Universe is asking us to perform a self check (it’s been awhile since we’ve done one!). Usually we are checking our balance or our current life path position, but today is a little different. Today’s check involves hidden negatives. We tend to hide things that we don’t like about ourselves, our job our situation or, negative thoughts about ourselves and others. The message is simple ” Hanging on to the negative things in your life offers no benefit to you or your loved ones. The time has come to unearth these things and heal them.” Start looking for the small hurtful places. The Winter Solstice with it’s message of new beginnings and light is a great time to activate the self healing process. While this kind of work is never easy it will help us not only on our path, it will also usher in beneficial new blessings. We are never alone, the Goddess, Angels and the Ascended Masters are all here to help!


Archangel Michael surrounds with his loving protection at all times especially during times of self healing. The Ascended Master Mother Mary helps fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves. And,  the Celtic Sun God Lugh helps us to heal from painful and negative situations. He is the embodiment of the sun itself and his energy helps to burn things away.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Black Obsidian. This stone not only protects it also helps to bring negative energy to the surface where it can be dispelled and provides support during times of change. It takes the “things” that we’ve hidden and composts them into positive soil to support out new growth.

Goes the song, “we change, we change.” But the music is still mine. – Mary Anne Radmacher


1224:  We receive guidance from our angels everyday but it is up to us to listen and use that guidance to our benefit. This guidance will be valuable today as we continue working with faith. Our faith is also creating positive change in our lives and the angels want you to know that you are making good progress. However, if you have been dragging your feet and fighting the necessary changes (due to fear and lack of confidence) the angels want you know that there is still time to make things happen. Asking the angels for assistance offers a double benefit, it allows the angels to help you and allows you reap fruits of your labor. Listen to the guidance that you receive as well as your intuition and welcome the change that brings new things to your life!


Continue working with the Ascended Master Jesus to boost faith. You can also call upon Archangel Michael to promote needed direction, courage and self esteem. Archangel Sandalphon delivers our prayers and requests to the Angels and Ascended Masters who can best assist us and Archangel Zadkiel fills us with compassion and shows us the path to forgiveness.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Pietersite (The Tempest Stone). Use this stone to help access our intuition and create a link to a loving level of guidance. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm.

Spiritual Unite: Red Chakra Meaning And Its Significance

Red is the colour of the Root chakra or Muladhara. This is the first of the seven primary chakras, and it deals with our base needs and wants.
The Root chakra is often overlooked for the more metaphysical, high-minded chakras that deal with consciousness, oneness, love and other “noble” ideals.

MBG:  5 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About Using Ayurveda To Heal Digestion & More

Ayurveda is gaining prominence in the mainstream, as yoga becomes increasingly popular, and fashionable eateries serve turmeric lattes (aka Golden Milk) and bliss balls (aka Ladoos). That said, many people in the West are still confused about this ancient philosophy and how to integrate it into their everyday. Since releasing my ayurveda-based cookbook East by West, I’ve found that people often have a lot of misunderstandings about what ayurveda actually is. Here are the top five myths, busted:

Daily Good: Native Women Reclaim Land Plot by Plot

In the San Francisco Bay Area, demand for land seems endless. Property values are sky-high, rents are backbreaking, and people just keep coming. Over 2 million more are expected to settle here by 2040. Today’s land rush is nothing new. For more than 200 years, there has been a run on Bay Area real estate a relentless wave of colonization, then suburbanization and now gentrification that left the Ohlone, the Bay Area’s first people, landless. Corrina Gould, a Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone leader and her partner in crime Johnella LaRose, who is Shoshone-Bannock and Carrizo; founded the Sogorea Te Land Trust in 2012 to reclaim Ohlone land in the Bay Area.

Elephant Journal: This Winter Solstice, we become New Again

Instead, I regularly attended or hosted summer solstice parties.

New study dispels the green thumb myth that intimate attention is good for plant growth.

There are a lot of New Agey gardening tips that abound. Some gurus recommend playing music for your houseplants, or having conversations with them, or even giving them gentle massages or an intimate touch now and then. Most of these practices are probably more for the benefit of the gardener than the garden, but generally innocuous enough.

Patheos-Pagan: Ded Moroz: The Cruel & Kind Grandfather Frost

Ded Moroz is a Russian character in a similar vein as Santa Claus, Father Christmas, and St. Nicholas. His name translates to”Old Man Frost” or “Grandfather Frost”. Ded Moroz has a very similar appearance to Santa, except he tends to be depicted as wearing blue with snowflake embroidery, having a wizard’s staff, and unlike his counterparts has a female companion. His female companion is his granddaughter Snegurochka, the Snow Maiden.

Inner Journey:

BIG MIND, LITTLE MIND

“It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated.”
— Sri Ramakrishna

Zen distinguishes big mind from small mind. Big mind identifies with its process, is impersonal and participates universally. Big mind is unlimited possibilities, deeper understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, insight, connectedness, attention.

Small mind is self centred and focuses only on itself. It is compulsive, limited, reactive and mechanical. Small mind feeds on itself — fear reacts to fear, judgment reacts to judgment, anger sparks more anger.

Always seek higher perspectives and you will in time find freedom.

“If a pickpocket meets a Holy Man, he will see only his pockets.”
— Hari Dass

“Minds are like parachutes; they work best when open.”
— Lord Thomas Dewar

Daily Wisdom
December 19, 2018

Experience

“If it be knowledge or wisdom one is seeking, then one had better go direct to the source. And the source is not the scholar or philosopher, not the master, saint, or teacher, but life itself- direct experience of life.”

-Henry Miller (1891-1980)

There are all different ways of learning and growing. There are amazing works by brilliant people available to us at any time. And we can gain so much from the words of our fellow man. But where did they get these insights? At some point, the knowledge has to be experienced to be understood. And when it is understood, then it can be expressed. We all know what lessons we have learned from our experiences. And this is a big part of why we’re here – to experience life, to learn and to grow.

-Lissa Coffey

Beliefnet: 5 Ways Archangel Michael has Your Back

All of the archangels are helpful entities, but Archangel Michael appears to be the archangel who shows up most regularly in our lives. While each archangel has access to enormous power and grace, archangels can at times have a subtle presence, or be working on your behalf behind the scenes without your knowledge, but Archangel Michael seems to have a more immediate, pronounced presence. Archangel Michael is an especially “hands on” archangel.
