Spiritual Unite: Waking Up At 4am: The Chinese Medicine Clock

A common problem we hear a lot about is waking up at 4 am every morning. There are numerous ways we can get to the root of this problem, and the first is the Chinese Medicine Clock.
Waking up at 4 am every morning wreaks havoc on your life and leaves you tired, irritable and can affect your work and personal life.

Daily Good: Say Grace

” I am deeply delighted to live on a planet that is so big and varied that I can confidently say that right this very minute somewhere in the world a crossword puzzle is being completed, a fortune cookie is being snapped open and a song just brought someone to tears. I love knowing that while I am fast asleep in California, a crowd is gathered around the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum, a marriage proposal is taking place and a leaf-cutter ant somewhere in Costa Rica is carrying a leaf piece back to its nest.” In this brief, beautiful piece artist Lea Redmond conjures up a sense of the world of marvels we wake up in each day.

Elephant Journal: The Miracle that happens when we Show Up Naked

Bare naked: a soul investigation.
Scary thought, isn’t it? To show up in the world with no armor on.

That armor can be anything: power suits, high heels, hair gel, breast implants, a Mercedes, lipstick, social media, money, kids, strong bodies, sexy struts, fake smiles, politics, religion, dogma…anything.
Consider this: Just you. Just me. Nothing and no one else. Naked as the day we were born.

MNN: You need more eustress in your life
Stress isn’t all bad, really.

No one likes stress. It can feel like a weight dragging you down. Whether it’s lots of little things at work or just one big thing at home, stress can lead to health problems like high blood pressure or a hard time focusing.

EarthSky News: Sky Bear comes to Earth in November 

Tonight … a constellation you might or might not see, depending on your latitude. In the Northern Hemisphere, the Big Dipper is probably the sky’s best known asterism. In other words, it’s a recognizable pattern of stars – not an official constellation. The Big Dipper is part of the constellation Ursa Major, otherwise known as the Great Bear.

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 spirit expresses.

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

Today’s Recipe: Walnut Potato Bread

By Jean Genie

I received a book last Christmas called “Whole Grain Vegan Baking” and have recently have had a lot of fun making the recipes in it. The jist of these recipes is they replace the egg and dairy with potatoes, squash, and other vegetables. Also oils and vegan yogurt.

Self-Knowledge

“A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us.”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Sometimes one single event is all it takes to totally wake us up to the Truth that is here all the time. But for most of us, it is a process that gradually unfolds, giving us clues, hints, and glimpses of Reality in small doses so that we can assimilate them into our lives. We become familiar with who we are, we get to know ourselves day by day, as we come to understand and accept that we are much more than the roles we play.

Opening the Way: Cat’s Angel Message for August 5, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

Opening the Way: Cat’s Angel Message for August 5, 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!


Giving opens the way for receiving. – Florence Scovel Shinn


85:  The “attitude of gratitude” is important when working to increase our flow of abundance. By abundance I mean on all levels not just financial gain. However, we must also be open to both giving and receiving. By tipping the scales in either direction “we lose out and miss out”. Balance between giving and receiving combined with the attitude of gratitude creates energy. It flows out gathering things along the way and sends good things back to us, including prosperity and abundance (on all levels). Today the angels are asking us to take some time to acknowledge the good things that happen (Remember, there is always at least one good thing) The key words for today are creative thinking and perspective. Being grateful opens a whole new realm of possibilities to explore!


The angel Barakiel, whose name means “God’s blessing” is in charge of changing people’s attitudes. He shows us the way to receive with a grateful heart and how to open our hearts to more of everything that is good.  The Ascended Master Buddha teaches us that the key to happy living requires both moderation and balance in all things. The attitude of gratitude is a part of happy living,  and without it we fail to see the things life has to offer. If you are struggling with finding your gratitude today the Greek Goddess Artemis can help. She tells us  “All the skills and knowledge you need for happy living dwells within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


You can use your angel stones, Angelite or Celestite, to connect with Barakiel or try Dioptase to promote abundance and to help you stay in the moment which allows you to see the good things that surround you.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

 Invisible and Untouchable: Cat’s Angel Message for July 30, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 Invisible and Untouchable: Cat’s Angel Message for July 30, 2018 

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


Ninety-nine percent of who you are is invisible and untouchable. – R. Buckminster Fuller


730:  Our message today invites us to indulge in a little self care. In order to hear and receive both divine guidance, as well as our own, we must take care of ourselves. This involves keeping our energy field clear so that we can be (and stay) focused and centered. Everyday our energy field absorbs bits and pieces of what goes on around us and these things can knock us out of balance. This balance is important when it comes to receiving guidance and messages. Take some time today to ground, center and clear. Clean up your path, pick a few weeds, plant something new and even blow a few dandelions. Don’t forget to harvest some good things along the way….. you’ve earned it!


Call on Archangel Raguel today to give you a boost of energy and to help bring order to your thoughts or Archangel Michael to help clear our energy field. The Ascended Master El Morya helps us with the ground-center-clear process by shielding us from negative energy and the British Goddess Sulis teaches us about the healing and spiritually cleansing power of water. She tells us,  “Look to the elemental power of water for healing and comfort. Water has the power to cleanse away heavy and harmful energies from your body, your spirit and energy field as well.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rose Quartz. Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Balancing Material Issues: Cat’s Angel Message for June 1, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Balancing Material Issues: Cat’s Angel Message for June 1, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


The few men who possess the wealth of the material things of the earth at the present time are not truly happy. – Joseph Franklin Rutherford


61:  Our thoughts are powerful things. They can  bring us anything from great joy, peace or inspiration to anxiety and despair, along with everything in between. Material issues can often be the culprit. Sometimes it feels impossible to be super-positive all the time as some New Age “gurus” say you should be. Negative thoughts happen (it’s part of our human nature) and when they do what’s most important is how you handle them. (Balance) If you hold on to them they breed more negativity and that’s not good for our mental wellbeing. The key is in acknowledging these thoughts and looking for the underlying cause of them (be honest with yourself!). There is always a positive solution and the universe is here to help. By doing our best to turn  negative’s over to our spiritual helpers we can gain valuable insight and new ideas. Essentially it frees up our “thought space”!  Acknowledge, let go and focus on  creative and positive solutions.


 Archangel Raziel can assist us in the manifestation process. Remember that the angels and masters will only help with what we need. So if you want more than that be willing to go the extra mile. The Ascended Master Solomon brings wisdom and understanding so that we can do things more efficiently. This helps us to make the most of what offered to us and  Hindu Goddess Lakshmi helps us to manifest and clear the way for  all forms of abundance including home supplies and food. She says ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things! 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.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Larimar. This stone 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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Spiritual Unite: Peacock Feathers Bad Luck | Myth Debunked

Peacock feathers bad luck or superstition? In spirituality, the Peacock holds a sacred place. It is regarded as a symbol of protection, spirituality, intuition and transformation. Not only does it protect us from external dangers, but it also safeguards us from within. Our emotions, subconscious and consciousness.

MBG: Believe It Or Not, I’m Grateful For My Anxiety. Here’s Why

As a young psychologist, I was taught to tell my anxious clients they’d suffer from panic attacks their whole lives. Yet as someone who suffered from high-functioning anxiety, I can tell you that you can learn to master your mind. Yes, there will be moments when you tumble down an existential rabbit hole, but you can learn to find your way back out again and enjoy the good times without the ever-present fear of anxiety’s return.

Patheos-Pagan: Life Lessons from Artemis: Aim for the Heart

She was revered as compassionate to those in crisis and revealed herself to those needing her help. From the stories of Atalanta and Iphigenia, we learn that Artemis was a goddess who set things right. In all these ways, she aimed for the heart through merciful arrows or letting others speak their truth and live on.

A Note from the Universe

So many claim to believe.

So here’s what I’m going to start asking them: If you really believed you were guided, wouldn’t you begin listening?

And if you really believed you were powerful, wouldn’t every true desire be followed by action?

And if you really believed your life was about to be transformed, wouldn’t the celebration have already begun?

That ought to stir up their coffee, huh?

Let’s rock-and-roll,

Today’s Recipe: Vegan French Toast with Strawberry Compote

This is an egg and dairy free French toast that has a crispy outside and custardy middle. Flax and nut milk are used in place of eggs and milk. Use any type of bread you like (I used sourdough here). You can add a bit of cinnamon in the mix if you like, but I wanted the homemade strawberry compote to shine.

The present

“Stay present. You’ll always have time to worry later on if you want to.” -Dan Millman

Do we worry because we want to? If everything is a choice, and it is, then why would we choose to worry? When we stay present, we can’t be worried, because this moment is all there is. One moment at a time, we allow ourselves to see the perfection of the Universe, in all its glory! The present moment is where we are, it’s where we find out who we really are.

-Lissa Coffey

Releasing The Emotional Charge: Cat’s Angel Message for May 14, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Releasing The Emotional Charge: Cat’s Angel Message for May 14, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. 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.


Learn to become still. And to take your attention away from what you don’t want, and all the emotional charge around it, and place your attention on what you wish to experience. – Michael Beckwith


514: Grounding, clearing and centering is important to our emotional, mental and spiritual health. There are no rules on how often it should be done. But sometimes we need to perform this more often due to stress, major upheavals or changes. Since we are currently working with changes the Angels are telling us that now might be a good time. This 3 step process helps to keep us balanced and promotes peace and harmony within ourselves and with the Universe. Now that the weather is warmer I suggest “earthing”. Going barefoot in the garden or grass is a wonderful way get grounded and to connect with the energy of Mother Earth. Allow yourself to “root” into the earth and just release, feel the sun on your face and let healing begin!


Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble with grounding yourself. He gently helps us in putting aside our worries and cares. Archangel Michael can remove all psychic hooks, lines and cords that have been attached to your energy field. By simply asking him to do this is frees up your energy and promotes balance and sense of great peace and the Celtic Goddess Nemetona who teaches us that nature is the best place to recharge, she says ” I am the spirit of the sacred grove. I invite you to worship in my temple and feel the heartbeat of nature. This communion can heal a weary and battered soul and replenish your spirit with hope and divine peace.”


Our Sacred Stones are Moss Agate which enhances and strengthens our connection to the earth and Amethyst which is associated with Michael. Amethyst is a powerful protective stone and it gets you connected with Archangel Michael. It will also calm and quiet internal chatter and “monkey mind”, which in turn enables us to relax and allow the grounding and balancing to take place.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
