Effortless Transformation: Cat’s Angel Message for October 16, 2019

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


Everything has it’s own time and place. Transformation becomes effortless when we go with the flow. – Shelli Thompson


1016:  As we embrace transformation and personal growth it’s easy to allow worry and fear to seep into the edges of our consciousness. Do your best to keep your balance and don’t allow personal or material worries to tip the scales. Our number today reminds us that we are cared for and all of our needs are being met. It’s okay to unload your concerns and fears into angelic arms as you allow yourself the freedom to explore new territory. The key lies in remembering that by facing our problems or obstacles we can find the courage we need to overcome them. If you need help just ask and pay attention to the guidance that you receive to help you make the necessary choices. These choices when handled with grace and gratitude will create a positive impact on our personal evolution.


Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self beliefs and fears which holds us back from achieving and creating the life we want. He says ” Expand your mind and you will manifest prosperity and abundance on all levels.”

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.

The Egyptian goddess Maat helps to protect us against the manipulation of others and helps to clarify confusing situations. She tells us, “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is the truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also the truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Smoky Quartz helps to neutralize negative energy as it helps us to work through the fear of failure which can show up during times of change. It also promotes clear insight and focus which helps us to leave behind the things that no longer serve us and make room for the blessings headed your way.

Green Quartz helps attract abundance in all forms and increases our powers of perception so that we can see the “Tiny Miracles” more clearly.

Lepidolite helps us to focus on the important things. It filters out distractions and obsessive thinking as it soothes and heals stress, reminding us to just breathe.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

ThoughtCo: Ten Ways to Celebrate Mabon

Mabon is the time of the autumn equinox, and the harvest is winding down. The fields are nearly bare, because the crops have been stored for the coming winter. Mabon is a time when we take a few moments to honor the changing seasons, and celebrate the second harvest. On or around September 21 (or June 21 in the Southern Hemisphere),

Daily Good: A Three Year Road Trip Documenting Kindness

Do you see the world as a place of hope and optimism? Understandably, many people don’t as the barrage of bad news hits the news feed every day. Mary Latham is not one of those people though. Instead of withdrawing from the world after the loss of her mother, in 2016 she began a journey to find and create kindness as she traveled across the US. Over the past years, she says she’s found nothing but goodness and kindness in the people who offered her hospitality. Read on to discover the truth in what Mary’s mother told her: “Mary, there are always going to be tragedies in the world, but there will always be more good you just have to look for it.” { read more } https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2019/06/24/this-woman-has-been-three-year-road-trip-documenting-acts-kindness/?noredirect=on

Elephant Journal: How to use Mala Beads as our Spiritual Armor.

What is a mala?
As a jewelry designer who makes mala beads, I get asked this question a lot. And the answer is surprisingly involved.
In a nutshell, a mala is a set (or string) of beads that is traditionally used for prayer or meditation. But I believe it offers so much more that. I like to refer to malas as spiritual armor, because they help protect, heal, and guide us on our journey through life.

Patheos-Pagan: Autumn Equinox: Balance Meets Preparation

I love September. For us in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer changes to Autumn this month. The Autumn Equinox, or “Mabon” as named by Aiden Kelly, is the second harvest of three. This is when we “gather in” what we’ve sown over the Spring and Summer. Doing so reminds us to be thankful for the fruits of our labors both in a literal and metaphorical sense.

Inner Journey:

NOTHING NEEDS TO BE FIXED

“If you are ready to accept all which you find in yourself, you will be able to move through everything with deep sensitivity, awareness, love and understanding.”
— Gerd Ziegler

As we understand it, the spiritual journey is not about becoming perfect. It’s about acceptance, releasing judgment, and embracing everything in wholeness.

This is a great challenge for our personality. We’ve grown up comparing ourselves to others, always judging how we’re better and worse than those around us. And many of us are very good at finding fault with ourselves.

If we release judgment, then nothing needs to be fixed — including you. Explore inviting your soul to help you accept all that is and experience a whole new way of living.

“Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.”
— Julia Cameron

Destiny

“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”

-William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925)

This is one of the big spiritual discussions of all time – how much of our life is predetermined by destiny versus how much control or how much say we have in what happens to us in this life. No matter what happens outside of us, we still have the choice in how we respond to it. That choice is what allows us to create our own future.

Then, as the moon continues going eastward in its orbit around Earth, it’ll sweep up toward the star Antares – the Heart of the Scorpion in Scorpius and a red supergiant star – and the very bright planet Jupiter.

Inner Journey:

BALANCE MATERIAL AND SPIRITUAL

“What is [the role of money] in the search for meaning? Is our relationship to it one of the chief factors that keeps us in our prison, or could it also be a tool for breaking out, for awakening to a life filled with intensity of purpose?”
— Jacob Needleman

Our personality has a need for security. As a human in a material world, we need money to survive. If we don’t have enough for basics, our lives cannot function. At the same time, with too much emphasis on the material, we lose the spiritual awareness that brings meaning and fulfillment. The key lies in the balance.

What draws most of your attention, time and energy: spiritual growth or money? Reflect on (or better yet, journal on) the balance or lack of balance of these two in your life.

“Money is not required to buy one necessity of the soul.”
— Henry David Thoreau

“View money and things not as something you create to fill a lack, but as tools to help you more fully express yourself and realize your potential.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

Teachers

“When the National Science Foundation asked the “breakthrough” scientists what they felt was the most favorable factor in their education, the answer was almost uniformly, “Intimate association with a great, inspiring teacher.””

-R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983)

I think we all need some sort of a mentor, or a role model, or an inspiring teacher in our lives. We may have one, or we may be fortunate enough to have several. Great teachers can give us more than we can get from books or history lessons. When we form a personal connection with a teacher, we also learn from that teacher’s life experiences. It is meaningful to us because we understand that the teacher is invested in our learning, he or she cares. That inspires us.

Inner Journey: 

IT’S A MATTER OF BALANCE.

“My soul is the bridge between spirit and body and, as such, is a uniter of opposites. …Without soul at center, I would either transcend into spirit or become mired in matter.”
— Marion Woodman

Ram Dass talks of how his first spiritual goal was to be rid of his physical existence. He came to understand, though, that our spirituality lies in bringing higher consciousness to our world of form. When we can do so, we can delight in all aspects of creation.

Soul exists in the balance of spirit and matter. For a soulful life, we pay attention to both, seeing spiritual qualities in material forms. As our awareness grows, we begin to use consciousness to influence and create form. It’s through form that our spiritexpresses.

“Walk in balance with one foot in your spiritual understanding and one foot in your physical world of accomplishment.”
— Lynn V. Andrews

Independence

“What is independence? Freedom from all laws or bonds except those of one’s own being, control’d by the universal ones.”
-Walt Whitman (1819-1892)

It shows great spiritual maturity to be independent, to know that universal laws prevail. There’s a self-referral that goes on with true independence. We answer to ourselves. We don’t need the written out, voted and agreed on laws to guide our behavior- we know the right thing to do, and we do it. It doesn’t need to be written in a book, it’s written in our hearts.

Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.

No Expectations: Cat’s Angel Message for July 8, 2019

No Expectations: Cat’s Angel Message for July 8, 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!


Be clear that expectations are demands. Demanding that life turn out the way we prefer is a sure path to disappointment and suffering. Happiness lies in having no expectations, and accepting life as it comes. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


78:  Over the last few months we have been working to perfect our balance. This is essential to our overall growth and has a direct effect as we create our path through life an dour own spirituality. Balance  helps us to focus and see clearly the things that truly matter and put things like material gain into perspective. Today the Universe is reminding us that balance starts with gratitude and it’s a good time to do a little path maintenance. If you’ve been slacking and letting weeds grow on your path then  it’s time to get started. It’s easier and less “stress-full” to clear as we go instead of putting it off and becoming overwhelmed. Our lives and paths are works in progress and they both require effort and elbow grease to make things happen. Use the old grade school lesson of Stop-Look- Listen to help you navigate “success-fully”.

*STOP and perform a self assessment: Are you where you need/want to be?

*LOOK forward not back.

*LISTEN to your inner guidance system.


Archangel Michael gives us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. He provides direction when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction as he shows us how 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 Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process . Letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important. Greek goddess Persephone tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark or weedy places you often find treasures that you had forgotten. These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”


 

Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Gentle  Seraphinite helps to clears the heart chakra  opens us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life, and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path.
  • 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.
  •  Green Calcite helps us to heal on a mental level by promoting balance and communication.. It assists with the letting go and weed pulling process and invites divine flow into our lives by dissolving rigid beliefs and outdated programming.

Bright blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Every time you alter a thought pattern from negative to positive you’ve created a personal affirmation. It’s as simple as changing “That’s never going to happen for me.” to “What I can I do to make this happen? or This will happen for me”. As I said yesterday, negative thinking blocks our powers of manifestation (and our flow of energy). This upsets our balance (see June’s Theme) and hits us with temporary setbacks. Today the angels are asking us to watch our thought patterns and change negatives into positives. Perform a balance check and ground and center if needed. Your reality is how you perceive it so be confident and move forward in your own power.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations. The Hindu goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us “ You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”, and the Hindu god Ganesh works closely with Lakshmi. He is the remover of the obstacles that crop up and the ones we create for ourselves, while promoting peace and harmony.


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following: Sodalite is a stone for the mind and encourages clear and calm thinking. It helps us to be objective and helps us to release old mental conditioning and outdated thought patterns as it boosts our self confidence and esteem. Chrysanthemum Stone, which used in conjunction with Ganesh, can help to remove obstacles from our path. Since obstacles tend to pop up during periods of change, this stone promotes the harmony and the balance we need to help our forward progress and Agate is the perfect stone for grounding and balancing our 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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Today’s Deity: Ptah 

To understand who Ptah was, we need to go all the way back to the beginning of Ancient Egyptian times, even before 3000 BC, because Ptah was the creator of the physical universe. You may think of him as an artisan, the demiurge and crafter of all things. Wonder how he did all of this creating? Well, known to be quite willful, he just had to think about it. That’s right – first he conceived the ideas, then felt them in his heart. Once he spoke the words, life and things were created.

Daily Good: The Seasons of the Soul

In The Season of the Soul: The Poetic Guidance and Spiritual Wisdom of Hermann Hesse, Ludwig Max Fischer, Ph.D., makes Hesse’s vivid, evocative poems on love, imagination, nature, the divine and the passage of time available in English. Through his commentaries, Fischer helps readers understand Hesse’s poetry and wisdom within the context of his life. Although Hesse, author of the novels Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, and The Glass Bead Game, was popular with the counter-culture of the 1960’s, many readers are unaware of his poetry. Hesse, no stranger to the dark side of life, grew stronger from his struggles. Through his poetry, readers can draw on his words to discover a more meaningful life. In this commentary followed by Hesse’s poems, Fischer describes Hesse and his relationship with Nature.

Behind the shadow of me that doing chores and taking care of family
There is another me that wants to show my soul, my fears, insecurities and vanity
I am into deep conversations about life, love, and loss
I dip and roll and race and dive and hurt and cower and hope

EarthSky News: We go between the sun and Jupiter June 10

On June 10, 2019, our planet Earth flies between the sun and the outer planet Jupiter. Our faster motion places Jupiter – largest world in our solar system, and an exceedingly bright planet in our sky – opposite the sun about once each year. In other words, Jupiter is now rising in the east as the sun is setting below the western horizon. Astronomers call this event an opposition of Jupiter.

Inner Journey:

THEN AND NOW

“Time is not a line, but a series of now points.”
— Taisen Deshimaru

We understand time as a continuum. Our memories link the moments of the past and our imaginations draw on the patterns of our memories to project the future.

If we leave the movies of the mind behind, time can only be experienced now — moment by precious moment. Open in awareness to what is happening right now. Appreciate all that is. Immerse yourself in the joy and wonder of every now and life will be a gift.

“The responsibility for both present and future is in our own hands. If we live right today, then tomorrow has to be right.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Daily Tarot: The Moon

Things may be going fine but you’ll still be able to find something to be disappointed about. Rather than looking on the glum side of things, take a walk in the sunshine or at least get some fresh air and make an effort to be more objective. Full-blown optimism may be beyond you today, but you can balance your mood by noticing and maybe making a list of all those things that are going right.

Today’s Recipe: Tangy Skillet Pork Loin Chops

Here’s a pretty simple way to make pork loin chops with a beautiful tangy pan sauce. Even though these cuts are rather lean, you can get them to be very tender and juicy using this method. These chops pair very well with roast veggies, mashed potatoes, and rice pilafs. Leftover, they’re great fillings for sandwiches.

Words

“The more perfect the understanding between men, the less need of words.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Have you ever noticed how, with a really good friend, the silences are completely comfortable? It’s as if you don’t need words to communicate. There’s an unspoken communication that allows space to just be. Sometimes words aren’t enough to express how we feel. If you’ve ever said “I love you more than words can say” you know how that feels! You can write songs and poems and letters, and somehow it just can’t quite sum up that feeling you get when looking into that person’s eyes, completely silent.

-Lissa Coffey
