Use Your Power:  Cat’s Angel Message for August 11, 2020

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!


You have the power to create, use it to your best advantage. ~Cat


811:  Creative thinking plays an important role in our overall manifestation process. By learning to embrace our creativity we can lessen the effects of worry and fear. Now add positive thought and gratitude to the equation and we find that all problems are easier to solve ( including financial ones) and new doors and paths open up all around us. As far as daily numbers go, today’s includes the master number 11 which is asking us to step out of our comfort zone as we create the reality we want for ourselves. The Universe is reminding you that your life is your choice. Set your standards, create as you go, and don’t allow others to define who you are and will be. In other words, create boundaries!  Be sure to pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas, as they are the stepping stones that will help you to create your next level. Use them to guide you today as they can offer solutions to current issues. It’s a great day to practice your creative problem-solving skills, so be bold and stay open to new ideas!


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 Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to stop fighting the things that we have no control over, which blocks our problem solving and creative flow. Things flow easier when we are not struggling against the “what if’s and maybes.

 

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says: ” Personal boundaries are important to your well being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self-assurance to do what is in your best interest.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

 

Agate. This humble stone is the perfect one 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 make the most of our life experiences.

 

Azurite increases our ability to receive spiritual guidance and helps us to see through illusions so that we can see our path clearly. It helps to develop our intuitive skills as it expands the mind to promote clear thinking, understanding, and new perspectives.

 

Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem-solving process. It enables us to release things that are no longer relevant to our current path and dispels any guilt we may have when we leave things behind. It helps us to make the necessary changes and brings harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Boundaries: Cat’s Angel Message for July 7, 2020

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


Creating healthy boundaries will ensure your personal evolution. ~Cat


77:  We know from past readings that our path is unique. We also know that we are the only ones who know the scope of our dreams and what we need to be and feel fulfilled. Today, the angels are giving us a little advice. “Stand your ground where your path is concerned.” There will always be people, including loved ones, who will try to push you in a different direction. This can happen for various reasons like fear, greed, or simply because they think they know what’s best for you. If you know with every fiber of your being that your path doesn’t go that direction bless the situation with love and keep moving forward. The key is to honor their concern for you, by sifting through the information, consider what has merit and file away or discard the rest.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Jeremiel oversees life changes and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain a clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes.

 

The Ascended Master Serapis Bey brings us the necessary spiritual insight we need when dealing with negative people, feelings, or situations. By surrounding yourself with loving energy you can find the peace you need to deal with off-color moments.

 

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says: ” Personal boundaries are important to your well being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self-assurance to do what is in your best interest.”


Our Sacred Stones for the day include:

Howlite helps us to formulate and achieve our ambitions and goals and helps us to communicate these things calmly and reasonably and helps us to find our patience. Howlite also creates a link to the universal realms and prepares the mind to receive guidance.

 
Red Jasper helps us see problems before they get out of hand while promoting new ideas and creative problem-solving. It strengthens personal boundaries and keeps us grounded.

 
Lava Stone. This simple stone is a powerful symbol of our own energy  It is a stone of rebirth and helps us to burn away unneeded layers so we can initiate new growth.

Trust Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for March 22, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Trust Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for March 22, 2020

March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.


As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


322:  Learning to believe in yourself and trusting in your own intuition can be easy for some and difficult for others. However, both are essential as we navigate our path. Too often we allow ourselves to be lead by what others think or say. By letting this happen we are not being our authentic selves and we are giving our power away to someone else. While it’s good to have people around us who care and want to help us the truth is that you are the only one who knows what’s best for you personally. Today the angels are reminding us to stand strong in our beliefs, both in ourselves and in the divine source. Allow yourself to be open to receiving information from the world around you, and know in your heart that you are capable of guiding yourself in the right direction.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raguel helps us to find our power and brings clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He also aids in the letting go process which is essential to moving forward. Raguel reminds us that sometimes people can get “freaky” when they see you moving off in a new direction and helps to smooth the way by resolving conflicts and disharmony with those around us as we work with our creative magic.

The Ascended Master Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. while his “big brother” energy surrounds us with loving protection. He can also help us when dealing with those well-meaning people who try to push us away from our path.

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says: ” Personal boundaries are important to your well being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self-assurance to do what is in your best interest.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Pietersite (Tempest stone) helps us to work through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens our intuitive connection and creates a link to a loving level of guidance. It also helps us see the truth and strengthen our will while increasing our focus of where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm.

Sodalite is a stone for the mind, it promotes clear and calm thinking. and activates intuition as it draws down information to the physical level. It dispels confusion and releases outdated thought patterns while creating space for new ideas. It also helps us to look for and find the truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself by boosting our confidence and self-esteem

Rhodonite 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. Its calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations.

Inner Journey:

THE EYES OF THE SOUL
Today, we want to share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:
“My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well- being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.”

Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.

“As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the noticer.”
— Wayne Dyer

Ability

“The workman is known by his work.”

-La Fontaine (1621-1695)

This applies in every area of our lives. The artist is known by his (or her) art. Whether the art is music or baking, whether the work is teaching or construction or stock trading – our work is a representation, an expression of ourselves. It’s one way that the world recognizes us. It is one way that we contribute to the world. So we must always strive to work to the best of our ability, to do the best that we can do. In doing so we honor ourselves and our abilities.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Devil

Your instincts may be heightened and a bit off today, and this could lead you to make some wrong decisions or assumptions. Then, you run the risk of pouncing on these assumptions and acting out of a bad impulse. Keep your emotions under control and back away from impulsive actions of any kind. Today they are traps that lead to embarrassment at best, and harm at worst.

Balance and Boundaries: Cat’s Angel Message for December 18, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Balance and Boundaries: Cat’s Angel Message for December 18, 2019

December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.


Today, I Respect And Enforce The Boundaries I Have Set. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


1218: This time of year can make it difficult to maintain the balance between giving and receiving. The key is in our ability to not overextend yourself in either direction. By acknowledging our boundaries we help to create and maintain our balance. Staying open and positive about both areas as well and we find it easier to embody the attitude of gratitude and acknowledge the gifts and blessings that flow in and out of our lives. Remember that the Universe is meeting our needs and that we are safe and cared for. What you send out will come back and your spiritual nature will benefit you today by boosting our levels of faith and trust.


Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness.

The Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter, this gives us a clear perspective and keeps our energy flowing. He tells us that laughter is sacred and when the heart is alive with joy we are connected to the Infinite and filled with Nirvana-essence. Center your mind with the intent of enjoying yourself and you will find yourself centered in the moment. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process!

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative energy of others. She says: ” Personal boundaries are important to your well being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self assurance to do what is in your best interest.”


 

Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Blue Lace Agate helps us to create and maintain balance during times of stress. It helps us to find our voice when indecision is a factor, allowing us to freely express thoughts and feelings in a peaceful manner.

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) which 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 that are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

ThoughtCo: Sun Worship

At Litha, the summer solstice, the sun is at its highest point in the sky. Many ancient cultures marked this date as significant, and the concept of sun worship is one nearly as old as mankind itself. In societies that were primarily agricultural, and depended on the sun for life and sustenance, it is no surprise that the sun became deified. While many people today might take the day to grill out, go to the beach, or work on their tans, for our ancestors the summer solstice was a time of great spiritual import.

Patheos-Pagan: Opening Up Your Personal Magic Circle: The Power of Vulnerability

Connecting to spirits, summoning the powers of correspondences, and petitioning deities for their help all require being open to these forces. Vulnerability is necessary when we open up that personal magic circle of ours to others, whether they are embodied or energetic. Like all types of energy, the essence of being vulnerable is neither good nor bad. It’s how we work with our anxieties about openness that determine whether it’s empowering or weakening

Inner Journey:

Give yourself free time

“What is it that makes all of us end each day with the sense that we have not lived our time, but have been lived, used by what we do?”
— Jacob Needleman

How can you free up more time for yourself?

All of the great masters counsel that we need time daily for solitude. And if our journey in life is to become more aware of who we are, then surely we need some free time each day to explore our inner landscapes and uncover our passions.

What activities can you cut out of your life to give you more growing room?

“Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long, stretch of gray cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, thatwon’t happen. We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live.”
— Anna Quindlen

Meditation

“When one devotes oneself to meditation, mental burdens, unnecessary worries, and wandering thoughts drop off one by one; life seems to run smoothly and pleasantly.”

-Nyogen Senzaki

Through the process of meditation, of going into the silence, to that “higher place”- we get a different perspective of the world. We see the “big picture” and our place in it. We understand our connection to God, and to each other. Life runs more smoothly because we allow it to, that’s the way it is meant to be!

Daily Good: The Happiness Multiplier Effect

Happiness is something we all strive for, yet can be difficult to define. Dictionary.com defines happiness as “good fortune, pleasure, contentment, or joy.” And in fact many people associate having more money with being happier. However, studies released in 2008 and 2010 show that there is a threshold for which money can bring happiness. Beyond being pulled out of poverty to a comfortable income, the effect of money on happiness is negligible. In fact the one thing that was found to consistently produce, increase, and spread happiness, was to give to others. To find out more about how sharing the wealth means sharing the happiness, check out this infographic from YES! Magazine. { read more }

Tetraktys:  Mother Nature and Spirituality – A Few Thoughts on the Concept of “Mother Nature”

Since the 60s, our views on nature and the natural world have considerably changed. If, in the 19th century, nature was seen as the receptacle of human activities, the importance of the natural world was put to light in the latter half of the 20th century. As our scientific views of nature changed, so did our spiritual views, and thus the concept of “Mother Nature”.

MNN: How to invite amphibians to your garden

You can help save amphibians in your neighborhood by creating an appealing backyard oasis for them.

Some 10 years after they began collecting large rocks to give a natural look to an artificial stream that cascades into a pond in front of their home, Constance and Michael Johns have almost finished their long-planned project.

EarthSky News: Moon, Saturn, Mars August 20 to 22

As darkness falls these next several evenings – August 20 to 22, 2018 – watch for the waxing gibbous moon to move by the planet Saturn and toward the red planet Mars. The moon travels about 1/2 degree (its own angular diameter) eastward per hour relative to the backdrop stars and planets of the zodiac. Keep in mind that the moon appears larger on the sky chart than it does in the real sky.

Patheos-Pagan: Boundaries Are Your Personal Magic Circle: Ways to Know and Strengthen Them

We can get so easily sucked dry by energy vampires or give up too much of our personal power when our boundaries aren’t firm. These energetic barriers between us and everyone else are our own personal magic circle. Understanding them and the consequences for when they are violated are important skills to develop as a witch.

Inner Journey: 

WORK WITH TENSION

“You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.”
— James G. Bilkey

We need tension in our lives. It’s the force of personal evolution — it sparks creativity and higher consciousness. If we’re not comfortable with a situation, we try to improve it, right?

Tension arises through our experience of opposites. These opposites fight each other as each one struggles for dominance. Tension is transformed when two opposite dimensions of reality are brought together inbalance and in wholeness.

Know that tension is an integral part of growth. Instead of avoiding or resisting tension when it arises, identify the opposing forces at play. Make space for each of them to be there together and the tensionwill transform.

We encounter tensions between positives and negatives, mind and body, self and environment, self and others, and personality and soul – the dualities in our lives.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

Patience

“Patience is necessary, and one cannot reap immediately where one has sown.”

-Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)

It is easy to understand that patience is important, and even necessary – but why is being patient such a hard thing to do?! It seems so contradictory to what we have learned about taking action… and yet, it is equally as essential. There is a time when we must sit back and do nothing, when we must allow nature to take its course and not impose our human conditions and expectations upon it. Being patient involves having faith, that inner knowingness that all is as it is because it is.

-Lissa Coffey

We all need to shield ourselves before we go out the door. Just as we put on clothes to protect our body and carry an umbrella in the rain, we must put on our psychic shield to protect our energy. Creating your psychic protection shield should be done every day. In the morning, make time to create your shield. White light works best, but there are a variety of visualizations you can use to enhance your psychic shield. Try some of these this week and see how much stronger you feel.
