A Call for Revolution: Rebels for Peace
BY HIS HOLINESS THE 14TH DALAI LAMA
At eighty-two, I am ready to say my goodbyes. According to my age, I am a man of the twentieth century, but my yearning for peace, so deeply rooted in me, makes me feel that I belong more to the future of the world, and to the younger generation. In that sense, you and I are the same age, the age of renewal.

The end of my life and the first part of yours are at a crossroads. The point where our paths join is like that brief moment when night and dawn meet in the sky. It is no longer night, but it is not yet daybreak. A new day is being born. It is as though one page is turning on the horizon to the next one. It is up to you, my young friends, to write the next chapter of our history. I hope it will be the most beautiful and joyful chapter in the entire memory of humankind.

MBG: How To Give Your Home A Feng Shui Makeover — In One Day

After years as a feng shui consultant, I’ve seen firsthand how interior design can transform people’s lives in positive and uplifting ways. The month of January is actually considered the best time to prepare for a feng shui makeover since it falls right before the Chinese New Year and during a time when many of us are dedicated to self-improvement of some kind.

Daily Good: Thinking About New Year’s Resolutions?

“In past years, youve probably targeted minor vices — eat fewer snacks, exercise more, whatever your particular self-admonitions may be. But it is too easy to get lost in the particulars — and in the negatives. This time around, try something a little different.”

Herbal Muse: How to Make Spiced Preserved Lemons

You may have come across a recipe at some point that called for preserved lemons but didn’t have a clue as to what they were. Preserved lemons, also known in various parts of the world as country lemons, lemon pickles and leems, are widely used in Middle Eastern, Indian and Moroccan cuisines. In Morocco, in particular, they are called Hamad m’rakhad, L’hamb Mssayr and most affectionately as Lim mraqqed, which means “lemons put to sleep.” Preserved in a brine of lemon juice, salt and spices, the lemony flavor of the fruit is wildly enhanced while its tartness on the tongue is tamed.

Patheos-Pagan: A Three-Part Spell for Self-Love and Esteem

LONELINESS

“When humans find themselves surrounded by nothing but objects, the response is always one of loneliness.”
— Brian Swimme

Soul lives through relationship and it is in soul that we find meaning. We can have meaningful relationships with people, animals and other beings, projects, ideas and ideals.

How much time do you devote to building relationships with things?

“Loneliness is caused by an alienation from life. It is a loneliness from your real self.”
— Maxwell Maltz

“No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence.”
— George Eliot

Authenticity

“The highest courage is to dare to appear to be what one is.”

-John Lancaster Spalding

The key word here is “appear.” So many times it’s just easier to put on a mask, to play a role, to go along with what is expected of us. But the courage is in being authentic, in being true to ourselves and our convictions. Being true to ourselves is one thing – but showing the world who we are is another. Do we dare risk judgement? When we are authentic we answer to ourselves, we know that to appear to be anything other, anything less than “what one is” is heart-breaking.

-Lissa Coffey

Courage and  Perspective: Cat’s Angel Message for January 2, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

 

Courage and  Perspective: Cat’s Angel Message for January 2, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


I am the owner of my choices. I am the source for the perspectives I choose to hold… regardless of how aware I am of why or how I come to possess that particular perspective. It takes courage to look into the mirror of our souls, absent excuses. I will look into that mirror little bits at a time. SEE and ACT. SEE what I can bear to see and ACT upon what I am able. This is the heart of a gentle invitation to personal responsibility. – Mary Anne Radmacher


12: Blessings await those you are willing to go the extra mile to  make things happen. Personal growth and evolution is a big deal this year as we look for new ways to express our authenticity. Faith and courage are our keywords for today so if you need a boost dig deep within or ask the Universe for help.

The first week of the new year is a great time to set your intentions for what you want to accomplish. These intention are like seeds. Plant them early and begin the nurturing process that which will begin to “sprout” at Imbolc (Feb. 2). Remember to keep your intentions realistic. Reaching for the stars is great just be sure to take all the steps including the baby steps  as this will make it easier to accomplish your goals.  Baby steps are important in the overall process of creation as they insure that everything is in place and that you are ready for the next step. Today our Angels are letting us know that the wheels are turning and things are happening behind the scenes. Ask for assistance or direction when you need it and above all stay optimistic and focused on the best possible outcome.


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. Making them easier to see and grasp. The Ascended Master Jesus embodies faith, he also provides a clear and direct line of communication to the Divine and he helps all who ask. And the Yoruban Goddess Oya  teaches us that change is necessary to our personal evolution. These are designed to  inspire and encourage us to transcend our self imposed limitations. She tells us ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include Mahogany Obsidian. This gentle stone  keeps us grounded and protects as it helps to eliminate energy blocks, and helps promote growth on all levels. Our next stone is Carnelian. It is a creative stone that keeps us in the present and brings motivation and creative thinking which can help us in setting and prioritizing our goals. And finally we have our trusty Rose Quartz to help us see and appreciate the beauty around and within us.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

World renowned photographer, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, released “Home” on World Environment Day, June 5, 2009. Shot in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days, “Home” is almost entirely composed of aerial footage showing how everything on earth is interconnected. Though the visually stunning images inspire a sense of awe, wonder, and appreciation for our home planet, this film was produced to awaken a collective conscience and responsibility. “Home” poses the prospect that unless we take responsible action to protect the earth’s resources, we risk losing the only home we may ever have

Patheos-Pagan: Saying No to New Year Resolutions 

I hate New Year Resolutions. Hate. It’s an active waste of energy, this hate, but whenever I hear folx talking about their resolutions for 2019, my ass begins to twitch. It’s a real problem. A personal problem, naturally, but real enough for me.

Inner Journey: 

SPIRITUAL PATHWAYS

“In any way that men love me in that same way they find my love: for many are the paths of men, but they all in the end come to me.”
— Song of God, Bhagavad Gita

Spirit – the life force – exists in everything. It follows, then, that ANY path, any encounter is spiritual if we have the awareness to see it as such. Going deeper, going higher, emptying, connecting, believing or disbelieving, bouncing off the bottom, experiencing the heights, in pain, in ecstasy ….

Too often, we search afar for our own purpose when it is in our lives all the time, waiting for us to express it more openly. Bring greater awareness to each encounter and situation in life. Tune in to what you are inspired to do, who you are inspired to be. Your answers are waiting for you to pay attention – every moment!

“…focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”
— Greg Anderson

Authenticity

“To be nobody-but-yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”

-e.e. cummings
When you think about all the advertisements and magazines and commercials that encourage us to buy and be made-over and to do this and that to improve ourselves, it’s a wonder there’s any individuality left at all! We tend to want this actor’s hairstyle and that model’s figure – or that politician’s power and this athlete’s paycheck. All of these “things” are held up to us as the ideal. And yet, we know, deep inside, that what is REAL is so much more than that. Though we’re inundated by the mega-media machine, we must keep reminding ourselves that what we have to hold onto is who we are, and that is invaluable.

A New Year Filled With growth: Cat’s Angel Message for January 1, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

A New Year Filled With growth: Cat’s Angel Message for January 1, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we’re capable of. – Phil McGraw


11:  Welcome to the new year! Let’s first take a look at the number for 2019 (2+0+1+9=11/ 1+1= 3) which is 3. The new year will focus on our communication and social skills. It will teach us to our lives with joy and optimism as well as in using our creative abilities to help us manifest our goals and dreams. To aid your progress be sure to live authentically. In other words be yourself and be true to yourself. And remember to  pay attention to Divine guidance and your own intuition.

Today the Universe is reminding us that we are not alone and help is always available to us. Have faith in yourself and know that your prayers have been heard and the wheels are in motion. Divine right timing will also be important so don’t skip any steps as even the smallest ones need to be taken to complete the process. 2019 will be a year of personal growth and evolution so embrace your divine spark to bring clarity, inner peace and  greater self love.


Archangel Uriel gives us the 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 and our overall evolution. The Ascended Master Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha, brings us peace and teaches us about the healing power of laughter. Being able to find the humor in our lives reduces our stress levels and brings peace and clarity. 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 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 Stone for today is Pietersite (The Tempest Stone). Use this stone to help access our intuition and create a link to a loving level of guidance. It helps to strengthen the will and increases our focus of where we really want life to take us.  We can also use white feathers. While this is obviously not a stone it IS a symbol the Goddess Maat. Carry one as charm or a reminder of truth and integrity.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

This season of turning, things going to ground with the promise of new life to come, has many stories from many cultures. It can be easy to get caught up in the fear of unfamiliar stories making the ones we use to give us hope in the cold and dark of winter. Another frame might serve us better. In this essay by Bayo Akomolafe provides the hopeful frame of many voices harmonizing in a joyous chorus. All the voices, all the stories are necessary and critical. And no single story can carry the tune.

Elephant Journal: The Winter Solstice is not just One Night—it’s a Phase

The winter solstice is the longest night of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere).
It is a turning point in the cycle of the year. In the silent, stillness of the deepest night—light is born.

The birth of light is a symbol of the potential within you, within each of us: to find purpose, meaning, direction, and joy in life—particularly when things seem dark. Every life has its winter solstice times, when there’s more darkness than light.
Darkness is not a mistake.

MNN: Why paper books and the independent bookstore aren’t dead

I love books, and to an irrational degree.
In books, I find psychological and emotional refuge, education and deep wisdom that I just don’t find elsewhere. My passion is connected to the words and the form they come in — printed pages bound together. So I’m not afraid to admit that when I read an article about how print book sales had risen (modestly) and e-book sales had declined (a bit) and that the number of independent bookstores had increased over the past year, I shed tears of joy.

Happy New Year! Here’s a cool coincidence that you’ll enjoy. The first several mornings of the 2019 will feature a waning crescent moon sweeping past three planets in the early morning sky. Look east, the direction of sunrise. You can’t miss Jupiter and Venus because they are so bright! Mercury is also bright enough to be visible to the eye, but it rises only shortly before sunrise now and so is seen only against a background of bright twilight. Use binoculars to catch Mercury is you need to

Inner Journey:

DID YOU FIND JOY?

“The future, higher evolution will belong to those who live in joy, who share joy, and who spread joy.”
— Torkom Saraydarian

Joy, as the energy of love, is the highest vibration on this planet. Everything in the universe is energy; it can be measured and reduced to vibrational frequencies. It’s a universal law that as we think and feel we vibrate, and as we vibrate we attract. When we are in the high joy vibration, we attract what is for our greater good.

The Ancient Egyptians saw Joy as a sacred responsibility. They believed that upon their death, the God Osiris would ask them two questions: “Did you bring Joy?” and “Did you find Joy?” Those who answered ‘yes’ could continue their journey into the afterlife.

For at least the next week or two, ask yourself these two questions each and every day:
• Did I bring joy?
• Did I find joy?

“Man loves because he is Love. He seeks Joy, for he is Joy. He thirsts for God for he is composed of God and he cannot exist without Him.”
— Sathya Sai Baba

Today’s Recipe: Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Waffles

I got this idea for a bacon and cheese stuffed waffle after I saw my brother use leftover Christmas ham and cheese inside of a waffle… and it was awesome! I used a simple pancake mix and just added water to make the batter. I used cheese that melts nicely; smoked gruyere and mozzarella. These waffles are fabulous on their own or with a dipping sauce of equal parts mustard and mayonnaise. Enjoy!

“Somehow we learn who we really are and then live with that decision.”

-Eleanor Roosevelt

Who are you? Or maybe the question is, “who have you decided to be?” We all have roles to play, but our true self is so much greater than any of them. We can identify with the role, or we can choose to see ourselves as the role-player. Our roles come and go and change and grow – and our true self proceeds along through all of it. We can play any role we want to play, do anything we want to do. When we know who we really are, all of this comes easily to us, and we can keep it in perspective

Being Alive Is The Meaning: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

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

1231: As the old year comes to a close we are receiving a message and a  big hug from our Angels and the Ascended Masters.

“You are amazing beings and you have grown in ways you can’t even begin to imagine over the past year.  Enter into this new cycle by shifting your thoughts to a new level of love and peace. This will be essential to your continued growth in the new year.   Stay focused and confident and above all continue to have faith in yourself. By living your truth and claiming your authentic self you are fully capable of creating the life you desire for both you and your loved ones. Creation begins with you and spreads to those around you and continues outward like ripples in a pond. Don’t be afraid to enter the new year with a new outlook on life. We are here and ready to help you all you need do is ask.”

The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to focus on our goals. He teaches us how to avoid distractions and that sometimes it is pure stubbornness that propels us forward. The Hindu goddess Kali teaches us that decisive action in the face of change keeps us headed in the right direction and Archangel  Michael is there to offer support as we navigate our path. Our Sacred Stones for today are:
 Rose Quartz to promote healing, and inner peace.
Amethyst is a stone of protection. It enhances spiritual awareness and calms or stimulates the mind depending on what we need at that time.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
