Today’s Message: Hold Your Blessings Close

624: Every day we are blessed with wonderful things that I like to call “Tiny Miracles”. It doesn’t have to be grand or over the top to be a miracle and often it’s the small, everyday ones that mean the most. It’s part of our human nature to want more, however in reality we have what we need. Our vision of true “wealth” lies in our perception of self. If we feel sorry for ourselves our energy takes a nosedive. However, if we hold onto our optimism and look for that “One Good Thing” then the tiny miracles are brought into crystal clear focus. Today, the Universe is reminding us that everyday life is our greatest blessing. Hold these tiny miracles close to your heart so that you draw upon them when the need arises.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel helps to work through ugly or stressful situations and promotes a new positive light on them. Archangel Jophiel helps us to bounce back from negative situations by showing us all the good things in other areas of our lives. Remember that goodness and beauty surround us all the time, so stay open to receiving these blessings.


 The Ascended Master Babaji teaches us that by detaching ourselves from the lure of material things we are able to draw strength from life’s simple pleasures. He also 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.

 The Hindu Goddess Kali shows us how to get out of our own way so that we can appreciate life’s true blessings. She tells us “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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.

Chalcedony brings the mind, body, spirit, and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger, or self-doubt. It also promotes good feelings towards self and others.

Rose Quartz brings us inner peace and harmony which is essential to increasing our faith and promoting self-love which is key to positive self-expression and empowerment.  It helps to promote the softer, more loving view that we need to embrace gratitude.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Today’s Message: Focus On Your “Haves”

610: Starting today and carrying over into tomorrow we move into the realms of good vibes and positive expectations. This includes affirmations, gratitude, and focusing on the blessings in your life. Today is a reminder that we are all wealthy in many ways and on many levels. By acknowledging our blessings and embracing grace and gratitude we are opening the doors to creating our own infinite supply. The key is to focus on what you HAVE and not on what you DON’T. Remember that true wealth is not about how many “cool new things” you have, I know people with this mentality and they are some of the most miserable people ever. Make a list today of all the good things and blessings in your life and you will see that you really are wealthier than you realized!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells 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. This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

The Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance and wealth in its many forms as well as how to attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to be grateful for.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 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.

Eulite (Hypersthene) helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships which are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.

 Nebula Stone. This energetically unique stone resembles the night sky. It allows you to see the value of the things around you and helps you to appreciate what you have while promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.

Today’s Message: Opening The Door For New Blessings

528: Embracing our faith is a powerful thing. It increases our feelings of security, and our power as a creator as well as opening the doors to abundance. One of the keys to manifesting abundance lies in remembering that it comes in many forms and can be completely unexpected or come from sources never considered. These blessings of abundance have an uncanny way of showing up in the areas we need them whether we are currently aware of them or not. So when a blessing shows up somewhere unexpected shake hands with it and invite it in for tea. This allows new doors and pathways to open up and effectively turns on the porch light so that new forms of abundance can find you.

The Greek Goddess Athena embodies change and transformation through experience and learning. She tells us ” You are a warrior in your own right. Every day you must consciously choose the battles that you will fight so make the wisest choices you can, each choice will help lead you to discover new pieces to the puzzle and assist in your victory.

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Black Banded Agate helps us start new things, and embrace new beginnings and projects. It promotes the creativity needed to make things happen.

This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession with 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.

Sugilite also encourages positive thinking and teaches us to live our truth and to trust our intuition. This stone also brings purple ray energy to earth. It embodies spiritual love and wisdom and assists in opening the chakras. This stone can also help you find the answers to “Why am I here and What is my purpose?”

Today’s Message: Life Is More Than the Material

26: Today’s world tends to revolve around material things. People are obsessed with having the best, the latest, the most expensive, and the most “things”. By allowing this material obsession to rule our lives it takes up valuable resources, time, and energy. Today the angels are gently reminding us that happiness and success are not created by “the things you have”. They are created by what you have within.

“Step away from the material today and look for your inner peace and balance. These are the things you must have in order to achieve true happiness and success.”

Take time to look at your life and be grateful for what you have and for the tiny miracles that surround us. By doing this it allows us to see and receive blessings and opportunities that might otherwise miss out on.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

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 Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

Aine the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Universe and in ourselves. She tells us  “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 Tree Agate (Dendritic) to strengthen your connection to the plant kingdom and help you to enjoy each moment. It is also known as the stone of plentitude and promotes abundance while showing us the “wealth” we already have.

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the ideas and habits that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth. ( Calcite can also be used to promote the balance of your chakras. When our chakras are in balance it’s easier to live the attitude of gratitude.)

  Sunny golden Citrine helps increase our self-esteem and is a powerful healer of old outdated patterns, which allows us to manifest new things. This stone also attracts abundance, but keep in mind that abundance comes in many forms not just financial, so stay open to them all.

Today’s Message: Sharing our Gifts

104: Today the Universe is reminding us that we are always surrounded by divine love. This powerful energy is shared freely and we are being asked to do the same. Empathy and compassion, for self, and for others, are gifts that we can share everyday. While we may not understand or agree with a particular situation or event we can express empathy for what others (or even yourself) are going through. If you are feeling out of sorts today take a moment to clear and center and ask the Source to fill your being with love, peace, and gratitude. Remember, when you love yourself it’s easier to share that love with others. Love and compassion are superpowers that transform all that they touch. Who will you reach out to today?

As a cosmic goddess she reminds us of our divine place in the Universe and while we may feel small and insignificant the truth is far different. She says” Rejoice in your own power. It is love and patience that allow you to shape the world and make you a creator in your own right. You do not need to have born a child to be a mother this essence live within all. Embrace it and send it to those around you.”

Mabon Activities: This is such a beautiful season to go outside! Take some nature walks and collect pinecones, acorns, colored leaves and interesting seeds and pods for decorating your home and altar. Other activities include making gourd rattles, harvesting from your garden, share your gardens abundance with others, fill your bird feeders with treats for your avian friends. Most of all, count your blessings. Have everyone in your family make a list of all the things they are thankful for and then read them aloud. I will also include my favorite activity…”feeding the trees”. We share a drink of apple cider or wine with our trees. This honors not only the tree spirit but The Greenman as well.

Mabon (pronounced May-bon, May-bone, May-bun, May-bawn) is celebrated at the time of the Autumn Equinox on or around September 21. This festival marks the completion of the harvest begun at Lughnasadh. It is named after the celtic god Mabon. Other names for this Lesser Sabbat include Harvest Home, Festival of Dionysus, The Feast of Avalon, Mea’n Fo’mhair (druid), Winter Finding (norse), Equinozio di Autunnio (strega).

On this day, day and night are again equal and time holds it’s breath as the Dying God gets ready to leave his physical body and begin the great journey to the Summerland. He sees this as the last great adventure of renewal and rebirth. The Goddess who is drowsing in the waning warmth of summer feels her love getting ready to depart as well as the new life growing in her womb.

The threefold theme for this Sabbat is Balance- Gratitude- Reflection. This is also a time of balance not only within nature but within ourselves and our lives. On the great wheel Mabon is balanced by Ostara. It is traditional to clean the unnecessary clutter from your home and life as well as blessing the thresholds of your house. Look back on everything you have done in the past year and with your life. Congratulate yourself on your accomplishments and make note of the areas you need to improve upon. Give thanks to the Lady and Lord, yourself and to everyone who has helped to get where your on this day! This is a wonderful time to do spells of balancing in preparation of the time of relfection that will be coming up at Samahain.

A Mabon Thought…. by Cat

On this day I am Thankful.

I am thankful for being able to rise and greet the day when there are those who cannot……..

I am thankful for my health and the health of my family, when so many others are sick……

I am thankful for having a home when so many are homeless……….

I am thankful for my family, friends, and pets when so many spend their lives alone………

I am thankful for having a loving spouse when many live with =buse……….

I am thankful for the food on my table when others are starving………

I am thankful for my job when so many are out of work……….

I am thankful for just being here and being able to participate in the adventure called life………

On this day I remember how important it is to give thanks everyday even when it seems like I have nothing to be thankful for

On this day I give thanks for all that I have no matter how small it seems.

On this day I acknowledge how blessed I really am and I give thanks to the people and events in my life that have helped me to be the person I am today……….

I am thankful………………….

Today’s Message: Everyday Blessings

624: Every day we are blessed with wonderful things that I like to call “Tiny Miracles”. It doesn’t have to be grand or over the top to be a miracle and often it’s the small, everyday ones that mean the most. It’s part of our human nature to want more, however in reality we have what we need. Our vision of true “wealth” lies in our perception of self. If we feel sorry for ourselves our energy takes a nosedive. However, if we hold onto our optimism and look for that “One Good Thing” then the tiny miracles are brought into crystal clear focus. Today, the Universe is reminding us that everyday life is our greatest blessing. Hold these tiny miracles close to your heart so that you draw upon them when the need arises.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Uriel can help us to overcome obstacles by showing us where the solutions are that will lead to our success. He provides us with additional information that we need to make the most informed decisions we can. No problem is too great or too small for him to assist with. Uriel also helps us to gain spiritual understanding and creative insight. Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed, or simply express gratitude for the blessings taking place in your life.

The Ascended Master Babaji teaches us that by detaching ourselves from the lure of material things we are able to draw strength from life’s simple pleasures. He also 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.

The Hindu Goddess Kali who shows us how to get out of our own way so that we can appreciate life’s true blessings. She tells us “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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.

Citrine. This happy and sunny crystal draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action. We can also use Citrine to help us sift through information and analyze situations so that we can move forward with positive intent. Citrine also helps us go with the flow and encourages us to explore all options so that we can make the best decisions for our journey.

Nebula Stone. This energetically unique stone resembles the night sky. It allows you to see the value of the things around you and helps you to appreciate what you have while promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat
