Daily Good: A Message About Messages

The complex meanings of a serious story or novel can be understood only by participation in the language of the story itself. To translate them into a message or reduce them to a sermon distorts, betrays, and destroys them. This is because a work of art is understood not by the mind only, but by the emotions and by the body itself. { read more }

Inner Journey:

WHAT’S OFF BALANCE?

“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler

Spirit requires a balance of female and male energy, yin and yang, receptiveness and expression. Are you sensitive to intuition and inner guidance? Are you able to act on the guidance you receive? Seek to find a balance in being and doing in all areas of your life.

“The balanced energy is the birthing energy. I used to say that the birthing energy was all feminine — it’s not. You have to push and you have to be. It’s such a potent example of the dance of the feminine and masculine together, the dance that is the creative energy of life!”
— Joyce Irvine

Art

“Life has been your art. You have set yourself to music. Your days are your sonnets.”

-Oscar Wilde (1854- 1900)

Every day, our creativity guides us. We are each an artist, and life is our canvas. Life is our instrument, our marble slab, our blank page. All the choices before us are the colors, the notes, the words. We are creating our life as we create a work of art. Let’s make it beautiful!

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Death

There’s a sense of security in what is old, and with something new coming into your life it’s natural to be a bit afraid. Give this new situation a chance and give yourself time to get comfortable with the new conditions. It could be as simple as getting your hair cut or changing your glasses frames, but it could be much bigger than that.

It’s About Balance: Cat’s Angel Message for September 7, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


Manage the remarkable balance between acting from your heart and close to your gifts with completing the obligations that your labor and tasks require of you. Leverage opportunity AND seize joy. – Mary Anne Radmacher


97:  Yesterday we talked about sending loving, positive vibes out into the world and to the people around us. Today the angels are sending a gentle reminder that we need to remain open to receiving as well as giving ….  in other words balance. If we only give we deplete ourselves and by only taking we deplete others. Neither of these are healthy options. However, by balancing the two we find that our energy flows freely and not only benefits us but others as well. It creates a powerful, ever expanding circle of energy that spreads like ripples in a pond. Perform a self check today and make sure your energies are balanced and make any necessary adjustments that are needed. Now…. take a deep breath and shine!


Archangel Sandalphon makes sure that our prayers get to the angel or master best able to handle our requests. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!). The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well. And, the Egyptian Goddess Maat tells us “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  •  Fire Agate 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.
  • Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making.
  • Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

A Funny Thing: Cat’s Angel Message for August 7, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

A Funny Thing: Cat’s Angel Message for August 7, 2019

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month.  You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


It’s a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it. – W. Somerset Maugham


87:  Human beings come  equipped with a personal guidance system. It’s  called intuition and every day we are faced with choices and it is up to us to determine whether they are good for us or not. When faced with these choices that will have an impact on our lives ask yourself “Is this best for me right now?”  Your inner guidance system will not steer you wrong and will always be the voice of reason. The key to intuition is learning to recognize it as opposed to the voice of the Inner Child who can sometimes get us into trouble. Today the angels are asking us to fire up our intuition and embrace the strength and courage to make the best possible choices for our current situations. They are also telling us that it’s time for a balance check in regards to giving and receiving. Make any necessary adjustments to avoid tipping the scales.


Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process.In turn this shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes blessings easier to receive.The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy are an essential part of self care and creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. The power of laughter clears and resets or energy field by releasing tension and emotions that have been help in check. This is an important lesson on our path, if it makes your heart sing then it’s the right direction, and The Greek goddess Artemis can also help by teaching us to listen to and rely on our intuition and how to use that information to your best advantage. “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 include:

  • Moonstone, the stone of new beginnings. This beautiful, watery stone helps to navigate the cycles of change and calms our emotions. Gently encouraging creative thinking and creative problem solving as it brings our  intuitive skills forward,  promoting control and confidence so these skills become more familiar and easier to access.  It also provides emotional healing by helping to stabilize the emotions and draw out old emotional patterns.
  • Mahogany Obsidian gently keeps us grounded and protects as it helps to eliminate energy blocks, and helps promote growth on all levels.
  • Jade aids in problem solving and shows us the path to reaching our goals and actualizing our dreams. It promotes emotional balance and self confidence as it gently dissipates negativity and brings peace on all levels. Jade which attracts both prosperity and good luck. It soothes the mind and escorts negative thoughts to the door. Jade helps us to understand that we are spiritual beings on the very human journey we call life and it stimulates knowledge and ideas.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Results of Self Care: Cat’s Angel Message for July 23, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Caring for your inner child has a powerful and surprisingly quick result: Do it and the child heals. – Martha Beck


723: Today is a self care day and the Universe is encouraging us to perform a balance check.

  • Are you taking enough time for yourself or are you giving it all away? 
  • Are you achieving balance between work and your personal life? 
  • Are you giving and receiving energy equally? Or tipping the scales?

Taking the time to to see where we are mentally, emotionally, physically, and energetically is important. The Ascended Masters are stepping in to assist today. They have a more intimate knowledge of the problems and feelings we face everyday. They are reminding us that when we are out of balance it drains our energy making us tired, emotional, anxious, depressed, cranky or even just plain angry.  Even if you have no pressing issues today their presence and loving energy can enliven and uplift you. Today is also a good time to ground-clear and center. This helps to not only free up our energy but opens us to the supportive energies sent by the universe.


Archangel Jophiel reminds us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. She reminds us that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp. The Ascended Master Buddha is called the Enlightened or Awakened One. During his life he lived as both prince and ascetic. When he achieved true enlightenment he came to realize that the key to happy living required moderation and balance in all things. This includes the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well. The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy are an essential part of self care and creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. The power of laughter clears and resets or energy field by releasing tension and emotions that have been help in check. This is an important lesson on our path, if it makes your heart sing then it’s the right direction.


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Celestite promotes spiritual development and teaches us to reach for personal enlightenment and helps us to find peace within. It also helps us to embrace new experiences while blending instinct and intellect to create balance and harmony while providing strength and calm.
  • Use Agate for grounding and balancing your energies. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to the most of our life experiences.
  • Rose Quartz is a true stone of unconditional love and self care. It soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. It works with the heart chakra to gently wash away negative feeling that we harbor against ourselves and lifts the emotions to promote joy and peace. It opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Spiritual Health : Cat’s Angel Message for July 6, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


If you’re not balanced, your mind’s not balanced… my fuse went. – Frank Bruno


76:  Maintaining balance is one of the essential keys to navigating our path. Today we are being asked to perform a balance check today in two areas: giving / receiving and spiritual / material. There are times when we get so preoccupied in either (or both) areas and we become distracted. The balance between giving and receiving requires that we allow ourselves to receive and at the same time acknowledge the the blessings that come to us. The balance between spiritual and material is equally important. By acknowledging the richness of our own spiritual nature material “things” lose their importance. They become nice to have but they no longer rule our lives. Achieving and maintaining balance in these areas leads to good spiritual health. Remember, that if our scales are tipped one way or the other it zaps our energy levels and our ability to focus. But when things are balanced we find that our journey and the flow of life is easier, allowing  us to be grounded and more at peace.


Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal our selves and our lives and therefore regain our self confidence and faith. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by  promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude. The Ascended Master Buddha is called the Enlightened or Awakened One. During his life he lived as both prince and ascetic. When he achieved true enlightenment he came to realize that the key to happy living required moderation and balance in all things. This includes the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find that inner peace is ours. And the Egyptian Goddess Maat offers protection against be manipulated into giving away too much of ourselves. She also helps to achieve balance, she tells us “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:

  •  Rose Quartz, this ultimate self care stone opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point.
  • Larimar which helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.
  • Celestite gently provides strength and inner peace while instilling a sense of calm. It helps us  to embrace new experiences while blending instinct and intellect to create balance and harmony.

Bright blessings for a magickal day! Cat

The Meaning: Cat’s Angel Message for June 7, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

The Meaning: Cat’s Angel Message for June 7, 2019

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance our in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning. – Joseph Campbell


67:  Our message today indicates positive progress. We have been doing a lot of work with personal growth and change and the Universe is applauding our efforts. We have reached a balance check point today and the angels are asking us to make time for an internal review. Take a look and see how well balanced you are on your path and how this relates to material issues. If things are balanced out….. HIGH FIVE! However, if you are tipping the scale then it’s time to ground and center and make the adjustments needed to even things out. Actually, grounding and centering is a good plan either way. It clears the mind, promotes peace and sharpens your overall vision. Use meditation, walk barefoot in the grass or just sit and breathe. Remember that whatever works for you is the right way.


Archangel Chamuel helps us to recover things we have lost. while he usually works with lost items he can also help when we feel out of balance by showing us the reason behind it.  The Ascended Master Buddha is called the Enlightened or Awakened One. During his life he lived as both prince and ascetic. When he achieved true enlightenment he came to realize that the key to happy living required moderation and balance in all things. He teaches us true peace is found through embracing these things, and the Egyptian goddess Maat teaches us that the point of balance is thin and feather light. It is achieved through truth and self honesty. She tells us ” Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rhodonite. This gentle stone helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations.

Just Remember… :Cat’s Angel Message for March 18, 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.


“To remember who you are you need to forget who they told you to be.” – Unknown


318:  Balance is the key to creating the flow of abundance so today the Universe is asking us to perform a balance check. Both giving and receiving are important, however they must be done in equal measure. Doing too much of one or the other depletes our energy and blocks positive flow. This balance is essential because by helping others we ultimately help ourselves.When we are balanced we find that we are centered and  filled with joy and inner peace. So take time today for a little self assessment. If you are tipping the scales one way or the other take the necessary steps to even things out. The universe and it’s helpers are always working to help us manifest what we need. Use your intuition to  access the divine messages that are sent your way. Have faith in the skills you have and be courageous and add something new to the mix. Use the personal power you were given and if something feels right… go for it!


When we are feeling off kilter Archangel Raguel can help us to create order out of chaos. He helps us to resolve disputes and arguments which can arise when we stand firm in our power.  The Ascended Master Buddha teaches us that the key to happy living lies in the “Middle Way” aka moderation in all things as this is the path to balancing ourselves and the Egyptian goddess Maat provides us with the clarity to see the truth in both people and situations.She reminds us to “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Garnet which helps to revitalize and balance our energy, clears and re energizes our Chakras. For those who tend to be stingy with giving this stone can open the heart Chakra to correct the imbalance. We can also use Zincite to promotes healthy relationships and to remove energy blocks while infusing us with clarity.
