Reason and Evaluation: Cat’s Angel Message for April 1, 2020

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves, the way we think and the way we do things. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation. – Vannevar Bush


41:  April starts with a reminder about watching our thoughts. This goes hand in hand with yesterday’s message about “the whirlpool of worry”.  Do your best to stay focused on what you want to accomplish and on the things that are within your control, and hold love and faith in your heart. This combination will help to draw peace and calm into your life. Even when things don’t quite go your way look for one positive thing that came of it, there will always be at least one. Now take that “one thing” and add it to the foundation you are using to build your hopes and dreams on. This step by step process ensures that you will make things happen. Remember, negativity happens (it’s normal!) be sure to acknowledge the source (don’t ignore it). Learning where it comes from helps us to open and grow and allows us more freedom to be the creator we are meant to be.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears as he guides us through issues of self doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress and confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed.

The Ascended Master Buddha is called the Enlightened or Awakened One. During his life, he lived as both prince and ascetic. When he achieved true enlightenment he came to realize that the key to happy living required moderation and balance in all things. This includes 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 Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, who embodies compassion and mercy says, “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self-love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart, and spirit. Be gentle on yourself. Joy comes from embracing the simple things which will free the energy needed to assist the creation process and help others along the way.”


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.

Amazonite. This stone is sometimes called the stone of hope. It helps us to speak our truth with confidence and instills us with hope itself. It calms and soothes frayed nerves during times of stress and helps us to feel and embrace universal love.

Bloodstone gives us the ability to adapt to the changes that are taking place more easily. It strengthens our intuition and promotes good decision making.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Below the surface of our incoherent, competitive, and sometimes chaotic universe, coherence-building “holotropic” developments (meaning, a “moving towards wholeness”) are taking place. In other words, our society is a holistic whole, even if you might think we’re a bit individualistic and incongruent.

Daily Dream Meaning: Dolphin

Dolphins are intelligent and friendly animals, and have often been known to rescue drowning people at sea. Therefore, they have long been symbols of compassion, helpfulness, empathy, and caring.
1. If you’re beset with troubles, dreaming of a dolphin could mean that help from someone who cares is on the way.
2. Playing with a dolphin implies that happier, more carefree times are on the way.

Daily Good: Guarding the Tongue: The Importance of Right Speech

“A few years ago, I went through an estrangement with a close friend because of the words I used to refer to her partner’s behavior. Although he did not hear what she and I said in our phone conversation, by “chance” he saw my e-mail that followed it. I meant no harm. I thought I was being supportive of my friend. But it was careless speech on my part, and it has cost me dearly. The painful repercussions of my experience awoke me to a simple fact. While I had been careful in watching the movement of breath in meditation, I had not been as attentive in watching the words coming out of my mouth. I’d neglected an essential aspect of spiritual practice–“guarding the tongue.”” More in this thoughtful essay.{ read more }

Be The Change

Experiment with right speech in your conversations with others this week. What situations are you most challenged in? What do you notice coming up in yourself when you “guard the tongue”?

Inner Journey:

CREATE HAPPINESS RIGHT NOW

“It is our basic right to be a happy person, happy family, and eventually a happy world. That should be our goal.”
— Dalai Lama

Little adjustments to our attitude and approach each day can create a major difference in our appreciation of life. On the surface, nothing changes. At the same time, absolutely everything does.

Use your awareness or your imagination to bring happiness to this moment. Find something to appreciate. Do this as often as you remember to do so, and your world will transform.

” … we can no longer afford to throw away even one ‘unimportant’ day by not noticing the wonder of it all. We have to be willing to discover and then appreciate the authentic moments of happiness available to all of us every day.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

A Note from the Universe

Have you noticed it, too? How fears are a lot like highway billboards?

The faster you’re moving, the quicker they approach, the larger they get, and the more they block your view of what’s real and alive. To the point that they tower above you, larger than life itself, giving you pause and more reason than ever to turn around and retreat to safety.

Yet if you muster the courage to stay the course, in just a blink they’re behind you, put into proper perspective. And then as quickly as they appeared, they completely vanish.

If you want to stay the course, then please, just stay the course.

Reason
“Neither believe nor reject anything because any other persons or description of persons have rejected or believed it. Your own reason is the only oracle given you by heaven.”

-Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)
That still, small, voice of reason sometimes speaks volumes. We don’t have to be swayed by incentives or seduced by sales – we know what is reasonable – we know what is True. When we can get past that “noise” and listen to reason, the reason that exists within each one of us, we know what is right for us.

-Lissa Coffey

The Wheel of Fortune shows that your love life is constantly rotating and changing. As the carnival barker proclaims: “Round and round and round it goes; where it will stop, nobody knows!” Part of the excitement is the uncertainty. Luck is on your side, but you have to have faith that everything that’s happening right now is for the best.

Thought For The Day: March 18, 2020 ” The Calm Place”

Happy Wednesday,

The world seems to be in utter chaos right now. Remember that you can only do what you can do. Don’t struggle with things you can’t control but work with what you can. Ground and center as often as you need to and take time to just breathe and find your calm-place. That calm place is where we can do the most and be the most effective. We’re all in this together and together we will make it through.

Thought For The Day: March 9, 2020 ” Chill Out”

Happy Monday,

Facing challenges is a part of life and when we face them we have a choice of how we deal with them. We can ignore them, freak out over them or meet them head-on and say “let’s do this!”  When we meet them head-on we find that our mind is calm and we are focused on making things happen. This ultimately helps us to take things as they come and go with the flow which opens the doors to new opportunities.

Calm In Chaos: Cat’s Angel Message for December 13 , 2017 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Calm In Chaos: Cat’s Angel Message for December 13 , 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.

CALM IN CHAOS

In the midst of the flurry – clarity. In the midst of the storm – calm. In the midst of divided interests – certainty. In the many roads – a certain choice.

Mary Anne Radmacher

1213:  As we move closer to the holidays we often find ourselves fighting with stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety are  created through negative thoughtforms and emotions, both ours and those of others. They bog down our energy which halts our forward momentum. For those who are struggling with this the Universe and our Spiritual helpers are here to help us. They are asking us to turn our emotional stresses,  fears and worries over to them.  When we engage in this powerful letting go process we feel better and we gain clarity. Invite your creative mind to come forward. This effectively promotes communication, improves our overall mood and opens us to new ideas as it stabilizes you energy. Ask for divine help when needed and don’t forget to ground, clear and center. Above all know that you are loved and cared for and let inner peace be your friend.

Archangel Jophiel gently helps us to see through eyes of beauty. She also guides us through ugly situations and shows the way to make them better and how to see things in a new positive light. Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha, teaches us the importance of laughter and it’s healing power, and the Chinese goddess Kuan Yin surrounds us with loving energy and opens our ability to provide self care. Our Sacred Stone for today is Rose Quartz. I know we use this one alot, however this soft stone is a wonderful healer for overwrought emotion, stress and anxiety. It soothes mind, body and spirit like a fuzzy blanket or bubble bath.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Cat
