Spirituality & Health: Yes, Grownups Need a Bedtime

Getting the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night can be challenging enough. Kids come pussyfooting in and wake us up at 2 a.m. Or we stay up too late binge-watching TV, or we burn the midnight oil on a work project. As if getting enough sleep isn’t already a high bar to reach, researchers tell us to also keep an eye on irregular sleep patterns. For this week’s Healthy Habit, let’s look at three reasons adults need regular bedtimes

MBG: Scottish doctors prescribe bird-watching, walking and other ‘nature prescriptions’

Mother Nature offers amazing benefits. A stroll in the fresh air can clear your head, relax your body and just make you feel better. Now doctors in Scotland are encouraging some patients to get outdoors for some natural medicine.

Doctors in Shetland, an archipelago of Scotland, are going to start prescribing bird-watching, taking rambling walks and picking up driftwood from the beach to help with health and well-being.

Daily Good: Myron Eshowky: A Deeper Listening

“When I was 6 years old, I began to go for an hour every day, before school had started, to work with a speech therapist who taught me to put my hand on her throat, and my throat, and then focus on matching her vibration as she would make a sound, because I had to learn how to talk. One of the things I noted right away was that when we matched vibration, I became really connected with her. It was a feeling of connection in my heart, a feeling of love that I would feel for her in those moments.” Myron Eshowsky is a shamanic healer, mediator, consultant and author who was born with congenital severe hearing loss that he learnt to adapt into a skill for deep listening.

Elephant Journal: A Samhain Practice to fill you as the Nights Grow Long.

My spiritual journey began consciously at age 23, when I attended a Women’s Conference at the Unitarian Church called “Women in Religion—A Walk in Many Worlds.”
It was hosted by the late Margot Adler, NPR Reporter and granddaughter of famed psychiatrist, Alfred Adler.
That weekend, she introduced us to Earth-based, goddess-centered spirituality.

Inner Journey:

DEFINE ‘RICH’

“It ain’t so much trouble to get rich as it is to tell when we have got rich.”
— Josh Billings

How do you define ‘rich’?

If you want greater wealth, what does that mean for you? A large annual income? If so, how large? A beautiful home? Health? Security? Happiness? To be in service?

Get really specific about what would bring you a rich life. There are no right and wrong answers here. Don’t judge your desires. Just dig deep to discover what it is that you really want. If you want things, explore what qualities of life those things representto you.

“No one can tell whether they are richer or poor by turning to their ledger. It is the heart that makes a person rich. One is rich according to what one is, not according to what one has.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free. If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.”
— Edmund Burke

Prayer

“Tomorrow I plan to work, work, from early until late. In fact I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.”

-Martin Luther

Martin Luther knew that with so much work to do that he needed help. And he knew where to go for help and guidance. The more clear our thoughts, the more direction we allow ourselves to receive, then the faster and easier we will get there, and the more we will accomplish with the least amount of effort.

Helping Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for October 5, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Helping Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for October 5, 2018 

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


We’ve observed that people who stall in their personal growth work often have counterproductive soft addictions that stand in their way of growth and having the life they say they want. It can be a simple thing, such as watching TV instead of finishing a project. – Judith Wright


105:   Change usually happens when we aren’t paying attention and this can be a little scary. However, change is generally a good thing designed to help us grow. Over the last several months we have worked on initiating changes in our lives and when we do our best to hold it in a positive light, things flow smoothly. Be assertive and follow your inner guidance. Today the angels are asking us to stay in the present and acknowledge the changes we have initiated or want to make happen. Asking for assistance from the Divine and from the angels works to our benefit as does asking for the grace and courage to make these changes a reality. Remember to implement your creative thinking to find new ways and ideas that will help you to make things happen.


Archangel Uriel helps us to let go of the past and invite changes and transformation into our lives. He helps us to find harmony in the things going on around us. Letting go is essential for change and transformation to take place. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to set aside things we have no control over. And, the Irish goddess Dana tells us,   “While you wait for these blessings to arrive fill your heart with feelings of abundance. Engage yourself in things that make you feel abundant!” ….. ” Your energy is linked to the energy of the Divine. Acknowledge and strengthen this connection as it allows you to handcraft your dreams.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Smoky Quartz. This is an excellent protective stone that also grounds, centers and provides assistance in the letting go process.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

 It Happens: Cat’s Angel Message for September 16, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 It Happens: Cat’s Angel Message for September 16, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. – Marilyn Monroe


916:  Today’s message is a gentle reminder from Spirit that no matter what we do or where our path leads us that we will be just fine. Our number for today lets us know that the Universe is helping us by lighting our path particularly in areas where we need a little balance. The solutions we need to resolve or make things happen lie within and our “helpers” reveal them to us in a calm and loving way. Don’t allow worry to cloud your judgement or halt your progress. Turn these things over to the Universe and do you best to let them go. Ask for what you need right now, whether it’s protection, guidance, illumination or simply peace of mind. Stay focused on the best possible outcome and above all have faith in yourself and temper your thoughts with compassion.


The Chinese goddess Kuan Yin answers all who call upon her. She fills our being with compassion and kindness for others and for ourselves. This love gives us the strength to do what we need to do and clears our vision. The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find balance in our lives, thoughts and within while promoting joy and inner peace, and Archangel Uriel mentors us in making the best possible decisions by using all the information at our disposal.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Picasso Marble. The washy earth tones of this stone helps to calm feelings of stress and anxiety as it settles the mind and keeps us grounded.

A Light In The Dark: Cat’s Angel Message for September 14, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

A Light In The Dark: Cat’s Angel Message for September 14, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. – Chinese proverb often quoted by Eleanor Roosevelt


914:  Like any good friend the Universe and it’s helpers are always here to help us, kind of like Jake from State Farm. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist) We can ask any question and make any request. This starts the ball rolling and when do our part by adding our energy to that of our divine friends things begin to happen. Today we are being asked to maintain a positive focus on our goals, particularly the ones  we are working to manifest currently. Remember to have patience as sometimes things don’t move as quickly as we would like. Divine Right Timing always plays a part and when we are ready on all levels things will naturally fall into place.


Archangel Jeremiel  guides  us in learning from our prior experiences so that we are better equipped in the choices that we make. The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns and the Babylonian goddess Ishtar provides light so that we can see our way clearly. She helps to drive away fear and negative thoughts. “Stay focused on what you want.  This focus will shine like a beacon and hold the darkness at bay.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Azurite. This stone increases our ability to receive spiritual guidance and helps us to see through illusions so that we can see our path clearly.

You Are Ready and Worthy: Cat’s Angel Message for August 27, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Good things come in small packages. – old proverb


827: Today we continue our quest to release any fearful and negative thinking that may be keeping us from embracing prosperity and abundance. Ground, clear and center as this will help the release process. Take a deep breath and affirm “Prosperity and abundance flows into my life with ease. I am worthy of and ready to receive all the good things the Universe has in store for me.” Call on the Universe for assistance and take the guidance that is offered. Remember that prosperity and abundance can come from anywhere and the key is to keep yourself open to new information. Most importantly take the necessary steps and corresponding actions if you feel compelled to do so!


The Angel Gadiel helps us to release negative thoughts forms and  Archangel Michael  helps us to find the  courage to move past fear and gets us started in the right direction.  The Hindu deities, Ganesh removes the obstacles in your path and Green Tara asks us to “Come and sit beside me. Breathe and calm your mind and heart. In the center of your being lives the fire of your own creation, feel it and bring it forward. Allow it to bring with it your confidence and courage, do not fear, I am here with you.”


Our Sacred Stone today is Labradorite. This stone (which reminds me of the heart of the universe) helps to bring your inner vision as it relates to your goals crystal clear.

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Drive into your future looking at the open road ahead rather than into the rear-view mirror of your past. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


819:  The Universe provides us with everything that we need to make our lives happy and successful. It is our job to pay attention and take advantage of what is offered to us. Remember that you have access to higher assistance as well as your own inner guidance system (use your gifts!). It also helps when we do our best to keep things in a positive perspective and embrace the attitude of gratitude. By doing this we can  manifest and create a better life for ourselves and our loved ones. Today the angels are reminding us to stay focused on our goals. This focus is essential because it broadens our outlook and helps to propel us forward into the life we want. Remember, we are all worthy of good things and by working together with the Universe we create a win-win situation!


Archangel Sandalphon delivers our prayers and requests to Spirit as well as the angels and ascended masters who are best suited to help us. His energy is gentle and very subtle and he speaks to us most often through music. The Ascended Master Buddha reminds us that balance and moderation helps to provide the focus we need to access our gratitude and  the Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to feel more comfortable accessing and listening to our inner guidance system. 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 Stones for today are Blue Quartz which promotes happiness and feelings of well being as it enhances our self reliance and Chrysanthemum Stone which helps us to find our balance in an ever changing world.

Creating the Future: Cat’s Angel Message for August 3, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Every thought we think is creating our future. – Louise L. Hay


83: Assistance comes in various forms especially where prosperity and abundance are concerned. The Ascended Masters (AM’s) are requesting that we open our connection with them and allow them to help us today. As they walk the path with us simply ask for guidance and the ability to see valuable assistance in whatever form it takes. The AM’s can also help us to focus on the divine spark that lives within each of us. This helps to create a positive energy flow which is an important factor when dealing with our ability to create and manifest. The other tool we have at our disposal is creative thought which enables us to visualize new possibilities and put them to use. Stay focused open and take joy in walking the lighter side today!


Archangel Raziel can help us with the manifestation process by teaching us how to access and  utilize our own divine magick. Call on your favorite Ascended Master today or try connecting with El Morya. El Morya offers us protection from negative energy that comes from others and the kind we generate for ourselves. This helps us to stay grounded in our faith and promotes making positive choices.


Our Sacred Stone is Fire Agate. This stone allows you to embrace feelings of safety and trust as you navigate your path. It keeps us grounded and offers support when times get hard.
