MBG: What ‘Synchronicity’ Really Means & How To Recognize One When It Happens

Carl Jung defined synchronicity as “a meaningful coincidence,” as opposed to something coincidental that happens and has no greater significance. In the examples below, I’ll share some recent synchronicities from my own life that occurred over the span of one week and how I discerned that these coincidences held greater meaning for me

MNN: What are the different types of lightning?
From ball lightning and blue jets to elves and sprites, thunderstorms have a lot of tricks up their sleeves.

Although we tend to think of lightning as a bolt that crashes to the earth from the sky, lightning can strike the ground or hit inside clouds or the air. According to the U.S. National Severe Storm Laboratory, there are five to 10 times as many lightning flashes inside clouds as there are cloud-to-ground strikes. Here’s a look at the different kinds of lightning that could occur during a thunderstorm.

EarthSky News: Bright star Vega on May evenings

Vega is a lovely star to come to know. When I was first learning the night sky, more than 40 years ago, I spent hours, days, weeks, months poring over charts and books. So I sometimes came to know the names and whereabouts of certain stars before seeing them in the night sky. One soft May evening, I happened to glance toward the northeast. I was thrilled at the sight of Vega – gleaming, sapphire-blue – and surprisingly bright for being so low in the sky.

Today’s Deity: Taranis: The Thunderer
by Bill Blank
The name Taranis derives from the Celtic (or Indo-European) root ‘taran’ meaning thunderer or thunder. A bronze figurine was found in Le Chatelet, France and is dated to the 1st to 2nd century BCE. It shows a wise, patriarchal being holding a lightning bolt and a solar wheel. As one who grew up in the Western traditions, this figure is almost instantly recognizable as Jupiter, only the solar wheel giving away the fact that this is a Celtic and not a Roman figure…

The Wild Hunt: Speak from the Heart

Last Saturday, I did something that I’ve never done before: I led a ritual without a script.

In my family’s tradition of Wicca, the responsibility of holding a sabbat carries with it the expectation that one will write a new and original ritual. That’s not to say that every ritual is completely idiosyncratic – they’re still obviously all Wiccan rituals, and they share a ritual grammar that would be instantly recognizable to anyone generally familiar with Wicca

Patheos-Pagan: Nerthus: Prosperity, Parties, and Death

The Goddess Nerthus is my patron deity. I have honored Her and done Her work for years. Recently though I had someone contact me for more information about Her, and realized I had very little to point them to. I’ve written a few rituals, but I haven’t described much of my personal work with Her. It’s time to change that

Body

“If anything is sacred, the human body is sacred.”

-Walt Whitman (1819-1892)

The body really is such a miracle. It’s just beyond comprehension how all of our organs can work so effortlessly on our behalf to keep us up and running. We don’t have to think about breathing, or pumping blood – it just happens! Life is so precious. The body is its keeper. It’s up to us to nourish and nurture this sacred vessel so that we may wisely use our time on earth learning and growing. The more time that we’re here, the more time that we have to expand our awareness. Our bodies allow us to do that.

-Lissa Coffey

She Dwells Within: Cat’s Angel Message for May 13, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. 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!


She was deeply passionate about the sacred feminine. – Dan Brown


513:  Today the Sacred Feminine Spirit (which includes ascended masters, bodhisattvas and goddesses) is asking each of us (regardless of gender) to embrace our own sacred feminine energy. This energy helps us to embrace the compassion and love that we store inside and  allows it to flow outward. This also helps us on an emotional level by encouraging us to nurture and tend to the new growth that we have uncovered during our “weed pulling” activities. With things changing for the better it’s more important than ever to spread good vibes and plant new thought seeds where you can. Take the initiative and help create the things you want. Use your natural talents and creativity to transform your life for the better.


Work with some of the feminine archetypes and goddesses today.  The Ascended Master Saint Therese helps to soothe troubled emotions while leading us down the path of personal peace. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. The Hindu goddess and bodhisattva White Tara provides a gentle energy which helps us to approach things with a focus on divine love and prayer. She says, “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.” And Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rose Quartz. This gentle stone soothes emotions and helps us find unconditional love for ourselves and for others. It strengthens our ability to provide empathy and helps us to find loving relationships. Rose Quartz pushes away negative energy and helps us to release buried emotions and emotional conditioning that no longer serves us. What a great day for an emotional bubblebath!


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Finding the Answer: Cat’s Angel Message for April 22, 2019

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


We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself. – Lloyd Alexander


422:  Everyday we are made aware of the bad things happening around us thanks to newspapers, social media and television. After being bombarded with this ongoing negativity it can be difficult to see the good in humanity. But the truth is that the GOOD is there and  sometimes we just need to look more closely to find it. This is also true in our own lives because we sometimes get so caught up in the bad that we forget to see the good.  More and more of our fellow human beings are sharing positive stories and their light with the world.  Today the angels are urging us to trust in the Universe and in ourselves. They are asking us to have hope and to acknowledge the divine spirit that resides that resides within us. When we can embrace our own divine spirit we are able to see the divine in others, this enables us to find the good in humanity and promote hope and faith to those around us.


Archangel Chamuel is one of the seven core archangels and is considered one of the Powers who oversee the protection of the world. Call upon Chamuel if you are fearful of current world events and he will surround you with comfort and protection. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. And the Greek goddess Athena helps us to be a force for change and justice. She  tells us ” You are a warrior in your own right. Every day you choose the battles that will fight so make the wisest choices you can, each choice will help lead you to victory.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following,  Chrysoprase which helps to tune in to positive events and brings us hope. Blue Quartz helps us to understand our spiritual nature, it also brings hope as it calms the mind and Inspirational Apatite helps us to be of service by encouraging us to be more open and at ease in social situations as it promotes a humanitarian attitude.

Small Things: Cat’s Angel Message for March 29, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Small Things: Cat’s Angel Message for March 29, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. – Mother Teresa


329:  Today’s number revolves around our “life mission”. Your life mission is essentially an area where you feel compelled to serve. While some do big things in a big way, most of us do small things in small ways. Both  make a difference to the people around us. The truth is that it’s not about how much you do but what you do that matters. Simply by helping one person you are making a difference, and by helping others we help ourselves in the process. This creates a chain reaction as people pass it on. Life missions vary just like paths do, so never let someone else tell you your mission (or path is wrong). You know what you need to do. If it feels right, brings you joy and helps you grow then you are headed in the right direction.


Archangel Chamuel offers clear guidance as we go about our life missions. He teaches us that when we move forward with heart felt gratitude we are able to see things more clearly and have a better understanding of what we need and what others really need as well. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. And the Chinese goddess Kuan Yin embodies, compassion and mercy. She says,  “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart and spirit.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Fuchsite which teaches us how to believe in our self worth and how to be of service without getting caught up in the power struggles of others and Charoite teaches us how to accept others as they are by keeping things in perspective. It helps to provide motivation and reduces worry.

Little Things, Big Difference: Cat’s Angel Message for March 19, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


It’s the little things you do that can make a big difference. What are you attempting to accomplish? What little thing can you do today that will make you more effective? You are probably only one step away from greatness. – Bob Proctor


319:  Today the Ascended Masters are asking us to be of service to others. This can be as simple as lending a helping hand to a friend, family member, neighbor or even stranger. You can pay someone a compliment, give a hug or even a smile. Sometimes the best service we can provide is by simply setting a good example. Everyday we inspire others even though we may not be aware of doing so. Through patience , compassion and positive focus we can help ourselves and others lead healthier and more peaceful lives. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most and make the biggest impact!


Archangel Michael teaches us that through compassion and commitment to our beliefs we can lead effectively through example. If you work with children Archangel Metatron can show you the best way to be a positive influence. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. 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 you 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 are Apatite and Fuchsite. Inspirational Apatite helps us to be of service by encouraging us to be more open and at ease in social situations as it promotes a humanitarian attitude. Fuchsite helps us to understand our personal interactions with others, particularly in the areas basic life concerns. It teaches self worth and how to do what is necessary to get others moving in the right direction without doing everything for them.

The Key To Growth: Cat’s Angel Message for March 1, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness. – Lao Tzu


31:  Today the Ascended Masters are asking us to start this new cycle by raising our level of consciousness to one of love and peace. While this may sound like a throwback to the 1960’s hippie era, its energy is powerful and one that we should freely embrace. The world needs fewer instigators and more peacemakers. The concept of unity and community should top the list of priorities and by allowing peace to enter our lives we can set an example for others and ourselves too. It’s important to note that the Ascended Masters are not saying that we shouldn’t stand up for ourselves or for what’s right. If a stand need to be made do so. You can still be firm in your stance while promoting peace.


Archangel Raguel helps us when we are faced with standing our ground. He can show us the path to resolving disputes and arguments in a peaceful manner. he also acts as a  motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves. Ask for help and he can help you realize your full potential. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. And the Egyptian goddess Hathor  says “Beautiful soul, you need no ones approval but your own Now look within and embrace your divine spark.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include Moldavite  which helps us to connect and communicate with the Ascended Masters and  Malachite which helps to support friendships and promotes empathy towards others. It also strengthens our ability to absorb and process information so that we can show our feelings in a positive way.

Loving Gratitude: Cat’s Angel Message for February 21, 2019
