Faith and Gratitude: Cat’s Angel Message for September 22, 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!


The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest. – William Blake


922:  Today is the Autumn Equinox, Mabon or Harvest Home to those of us who follow the pagan traditions. Gratitude is our key word and it goes hand in hand with this seasonal celebration and works hand in hand with faith, the stronger our faith the more we manifest and the more we have to be grateful for. This is a good time to perform a self check and think about the gifts and miracles that have blessed your life so far this year. By looking back we can see how far we have come from spring and the thought seeds that we planted at that time. Make sure to nurture the “new growth” and to harvest what’s ready now. Embrace your blessings with a grateful heart and affirm that you have faith that they will continue to be abundant in your life.


Today we honor the goddess aspects of the Sacred Feminine. They are the Earth Mothers and Harvest goddesses that are associated with this harvest festival (Demeter, Persephone, Pomona) The Ascended Master Krishna can also be honored today as we ask him to help us see life’s blessings more clearly.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Larimar. This stone helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

MBG: A Ritual For Boosting Your Self-Esteem As Soon As You Get Out Of Bed

Most of us start the day by looking in the mirror and judging (negatively) our appearance. This literally means our first interaction with anything or anyone is negative. Rather than starting our days by undermining ourselves, we should spend our first moments affirming our worth. In this short video, Kathryn Budig guides us through an easy trick for getting inspired and energized in the first five minutes of your morning.

Daily Good: Awakening Through Writing

Albert Flynn DeSilver’s latest book is out, Writing as a Path to Awakening: A Year to Becoming an Excellent Writer and Living an Awakened Life. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon interviews the author, poet, and leader of writing workshops about the difference between writing as a creative endeavor and writing as a gateway to spiritual inquiry. They also discuss how to explore difficult subjects such as failure and death, and how such deep inquiries can help open us to the present moment.

Patheos-Pagan: Review: Protection Spells By Arin Murphy-Hiscock

A large part of this book is concentrated on spells for children and young folk. There are spells here for general fears, anti-bullying, and also nightmares, things that can plague folks of any age, but are particularly troubling for youth. There are also simple ways to both ground and center yourself which can be helpful for anyone. A large part of protection magic is designed to provide comfort and security and that is what this book provides.

Inner Journey: THE FIRST STEP TO FORGIVENESS

“To get to forgiveness, we first have to work through the painful experiences that require it.”
— Christiane Northrup

To forgive, we do not have to say that whatever happened was okay. In fact, before we can forgive, we need to allow ourselves to really feel the pain of the experience. If we don’t fully acknowledge our hurts, we will continue to carry them subconsciouslyand they will drain our energy.

To forgive, we need to decide that we won’t allow the memories of the event to poison us any longer. We’re ready to heal this wound from the past and open to a fresh new beginning.

The blessing is that when we’re really ready to experience our pain and we open to it, it usually fades away. By honouring our pain, we release it.

“We must let ourselves feel all the painful destruction we want to forgive rather than swallow it in denial. If we do not face it, we cannot choose to forgive it.”
— Kenneth McNoll

Actually everyone here is very, very fond of you.

Anyway, this friend said to tell you that just because most people are looking for what they think they don’t have, doesn’t mean they don’t have it.

She also said you still look fab in black.

Today’s Recipe: Grain-Free Cheesy Jalapeno Bread

I made these bread for a friend who is on a strict keto diet that’s to help with a certain ailment. The flour that you’d usually find in this bread has been replaced with Parmesan cheese, and you’d almost never know it. For only having 4 ingredients, this bread is chewy, moist, and crazy delicious! You can up the heat factor by adding more jalapeno, but I kept it on a medium-heat level here.

Solitude

“The secret of solitude is that there is no solitude.”

-Joseph Cook, Conscience (1880)

So the secret is out! When we understand that we can never be “alone” because God is always with us, then we will never be lonely. We will cherish our solitude, and consider it time alone with God.

Daily Good: Betty Peck’s Magic Mirror

Imagine a magic mirror that you look into to discover how truly wonderful you are. That is the kind of mirror that Betty Peck, a kindergarten teacher with more than 50 years experience, had in all of her classrooms. Whenever one of her students felt worried or unsure, Betty would gently guide the student to look into the magic mirror and say, “How could you forget how wonderful you are?!” In this short film created by a former student of Betty’s, this wise woman, now well into her 90’s, encourages us to have just such a magic mirror in every kindergarten, every household and every garden. In that way we can all say, “Thank you for every magic moment that makes it possible for me to stand here and to feel how truly wonderful I am.” { read more }

EarthSky News: See Venus at its brightest

On and around September 20 and 21, 2018, look for the brightest planet, Venus, now looming low in the evening twilight, dazzlingly bright. It’s now Venus’ time of greatest brilliancy, a time when the planet takes on an odd appearance; many will report it as a UFO in the days ahead. It’s a precursor to Venus’ disappearance from our evening skies in the coming weeks.

Patheos-Pagan: Mind Over Spirit: Be. QUIET.

Inner Journey: 

ON SELF-HONESTY

“No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne

“You cannot fake a relationship and feel right with yourself or anyone else. Changing yourself to fit what you think other people want doesn’t work. Pretending to be someone other than yourself only broadens the distancebetween the person you are and the one with whom you’re trying to establish closeness.”
— Mary Manin Morrissey

“Just as surely as distress must follow self-deceit, healing must follow self-honesty.”
— Vernon Howard

“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”

Solitude

“We’re all of us sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life!”

-Tennessee Williams, Orpheus Descending

There comes a time when we realize that there’s no escaping it, we have to live with ourselves! How do we treat ourselves? Are we kind and loving, do we show appreciation and forgiveness? Too often we’re our own worst critics! We’re hard on ourselves when we really need a break once in awhile. Let’s work on being the kind of person whom we want to be with – and spend some time being ourselves, by ourselves.

Spiritual Unite: These Are the Symptoms of Lightbody Activation

Merkaba or light body is a state of complete awareness. When endless amounts of light and love enter your spiritual being, they fuel the awakening of Merkaba. You currently reside in a three-dimensional plane. Once your light body awakens, your mind gets access to the 4th and 5th-dimensional planes, which introduces you to a new world of endless possibilities

Elephant Journal: Why Mindfulness is Worth it, Even when it Feels Totally Unsatisfying.

Several days ago, my mom seemed bent on picking a fight with me.
As she stood in my doorway, I looked at her and realized that I was simultaneously experiencing multiple thoughts and emotions. I was perplexed about how my picking up three cigarettes off of the stairs could have elicited her reaction. I was thinking about all of the mean things I wanted to say to her in response. And, I was feeling the physical heat of irritation rising inside of me.

These two worlds – the moon and Mars – rank as the brightest and third-brightest celestial luminaries to light up the nighttime sky, respectively. So you should have little or no trouble spotting this august couple before nightfall, or at evening dusk.

Patheos-Pagan: Apple Head Dolls and the Autumn Equinox

One of the bittersweet aspects of being a Virgo is that every experience carries light and darkness for me. Even at the height of something joyous—perhaps a marriage or a birth, for instance—I’m keenly aware of death waiting in the wings. I don’t walk around feeling morose all the time, and I do enjoy the heck out of my life on most days. It’s just that every high has its equal and opposite low, and that is what I feel even more intensely than usual at this time of transition from summer to autumn.

Inner Journey: 

THREE LEVELS OF PROSPERITY

“Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.”
— Woody Allen

To become more prosperous, we need to change on at least two levels. First, we must ensure our financial affairs are in order. We need an income that at least covers our expenses. And we need a foundation of habits, tools and skills so we achieve some financial stability in our day-to-day experience.

Second, we must become aware of the beliefs we hold around money and prosperity. If we unconsciously believe we are lacking in some way, then no matter what we do, we will unconsciously sabotage our own efforts to improve our finances.

And third, it’s helpful to understand the spiritual principles that govern our level of abundance. Once we know those principles, we can work effectively within them to attract abundance to us.

“If you’re prosperous in soul, you’ll be prosperous in whole.”
— Mark Victor Hansen

Patience

“Patience is not passive: on the contrary it is active; it is concentrated strength.”

-Edward George Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873) English novelist

Look at people who are patient. Along with patience comes a kind of calm, a deep faith, a beautiful presence. Compared with people who are impatient – who seem stressed out, angry, and hurried. Who has more strength? The patient person can do anything because that person recognizes his or her connection with the Universe. Patience can move mountains!

A Plentiful Harvest: Cat’s Angel Message for September 22, 2017

Autumn Angel

A Plentiful Harvest: Cat’s Angel Message for September 22, 2017  

September’s Theme:  Life Purpose.  Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t. Many of us fall into the second category and that’s OK!  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you. Life Purpose can be very simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better.  Sometimes the small things are the best!

The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.  ~William Blake

922: Today is the Autumn Equinox, Mabon or Harvest Home to those of us who follow the pagan traditions. Gratitude is our key word and it goes hand in hand with this seasonal celebration. . Gratitude works hand in hand with faith, the stronger our faith the more we manifest and the more we have to be grateful for. This is a good time to perform a self check and think about the gifts and miracles that have blessed your life so far this year. By looking back we can see how far we have come from spring and the thought seeds that we planted at that time. Make sure to nurture the “new growth” and to harvest what’s ready now. Embrace your blessings with a grateful heart and affirm that you have faith that they will continue to be abundant in your life.

Today we honor the goddess aspects of the Sacred Feminine. They are the Earth Mothers and Harvest goddesses that are associated with this harvest festival (Demeter, Persephone, Pomona)  The Ascended Master Krishna can also be honored today as we ask him to help us see life’s blessings more clearly. Our Sacred Stone for today is Larimar. This stone helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Happy Friday and Autumn Blessings!

Autumn is the season of balance leading into the introspection of Winter. Take some time today to relax and reflect. We have all grown since Spring in ways that are visible and in others not yet realized. Acknowledge your accomplishments  and reap the benefits of your personal harvest. Embrace gratitude for life, lessons, family, and all the good things that have come your way.

For all my fellow pagans, Happy Mabon and Harvest Home Blessings!
