Joy Enough: Cat’s Angel Message for August 28, 2019

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!


Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough. – Emily Dickinson


828:  The Pagan theme for the month of August is the first harvest. This started on the first with the festival of Lughnasadh and it applies to today’s number as well. It’s time to harvest some of the seed thoughts we planted a few months back to generate new areas of personal growth. If you have been tending and nurturing these “seeds” you will find that some are ready to harvest. However, some may not be quite ready and will require more time and care. Don’t worry we will have the month of September to apply finishing touches. Today the angels are reminding us to have faith in ourselves and in the abundance of the Universe. When we gratefully acknowledge our “Tiny Miracles” and do our part the Universe steps in and helps us out. Give yourself a BIG hug for all the wonderful things that you have accomplished so far this year!


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 Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy are an essential part of self-care and creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go of stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. The power of laughter clears and resets or energy field by releasing tension and emotions that have been held in check. This is an important lesson on our path, if it makes your heart sing then it’s the right direction.  And the Celtic Sun god Lugh, the patron of the first harvest, shares the fiery energy that inspires new growth and sheds light in our places of darkness. Lugh helps us to find creative solutions to problems and fills us with a sense of divine magick and protection.


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Nebula Stone helps you see clearly the value in everything around you as well as promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.

Celestite which promotes spiritual development and teaches us to reach for personal enlightenment and helps us to find peace within. It also helps us to embrace new experiences while blending instinct and intellect to create balance and harmony while providing strength and calm.

Moss Agate gently stone promotes new beginnings and helps to release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It also helps us to connect to nature and the earth which helps us to plant and harvest and is essential for the ground-clear-center process.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

ThoughtCo: All About Lammas (Lughnasadh) 

These are the dog days of summer, the gardens are full of goodies, the fields are full of grain, and the harvest is approaching. Take a moment to relax in the heat, and reflect on the upcoming abundance of the fall months. At Lammas, sometimes called Lughnasadh, it’s time to begin reaping what we have sown throughout the past few months, and recognize that the bright summer days will soon come to an end.

Today’s Deity: Lugh, Master of Skills

Similar to the Roman god Mercury, Lugh was known as a god of both skill and the distribution of talent. There are countless inscriptions and statues dedicated to Lugh, and Julius Caesar himself commented on this god’s importance to the Celtic people. Although he was not a war god in the same sense as the Roman Mars, Lugh was considered a warrior because to the Celts, skill on the battlefield was a highly valued ability. In Ireland, which was never invaded by Roman troops, Lugh is called sam ildanach, meaning he was skilled in many arts simultaneously.

Daily Good: Befriending Ourselves: An Invitation to Love

Is self-improvement sometimes a disguised version of self-aggression? If the focus is always on how I might be “better” in the future, it can be hard to extend toward myself a hand of friendship and compassion. I miss out on the present miracle of who I am NOW. Maybe moving from a perspective of improvement toward one of healing actually begins with loving my current messiness. { read more } http://www.dailygood.org/story/2350/befriending-ourselves-an-invitation-to-love-kristi-nelson/

Inner Journey:

REAWAKEN YOUR CURIOSITY

“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”
— Sigmund Freud

Why is this so?

Young children possess what Zen calls ‘beginner’s mind.’ They are awed and fascinated with the wonder of the world, open to discovering and experiencing new things. Anything is possible. Life is a great adventure.

For almost all of us, the systems that ‘educate’ us to be adults stifle our natural joy and curiosity. We lose touch with our innate appreciation of life. We forget how to dream.

The blessing is that with attention, patience and love, we can reawaken our sense of wonder. We can again dance with life.

“The mind WILL be free, or it will be dead.”
— Grace Llewellyn

These chicken kabobs are delicious and really easy to put together. You can make these on your grill outside, inside your oven, or on a griddle. All result in a wonderfully aromatic and tender meal. I like to serve it with a lemon tahini sauce and thick Persian flatbread. I’ve added my lemon tahini sauce recipe here with the kabobs.

Intuition

“You must train your intuition – you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.”
-Ingrid Bergman

Jewel sings a song called “Intuition.” It’s gotten me thinking about intuition, instinct, hunches… it’s all the same thing. The lyrics in the song say: “Follow your heart, your intuition, it will lead you in the right direction.” Great advice- but like much great advice, do we always take it? I think we try to second guess ourselves too much. When Ingrid Bergman says we must train our intuition, I think she really means that we must train ourselves to listen to that voice, and hear what it has to say.

Daily Tarot: Justice

Take everything and everyone a little bit more seriously today, without getting grim about it. People may bring you requests or problems that they think are shaking up their world, and you should offer at least a token respect for their worries and needs. None of this puts any pressure on you, unless you get emotionally involved. Remember, you have neither the power nor responsibility to fix it all.

Inner Journey:

USE YOUR BREATH TO RELAX YOUR BODY

“Breath is the link between the inner and outer worlds.”
— Alice Christensen

We live in very demanding times, and our health depends on our being able to relieve our bodies and minds from constant stress. Breathing with awareness can focus and concentrate our attention inside. This slows down our pace and eases the pressure, anxiety, anticipation and excitement that are common stress reactions.

At any time, you can consciously experience your breathing to help you concentrate your mind and relax your body. Compare how you feel after your session with how you felt before. Write about your experience in your journal.

“Controlled deep breathing helps the body to transform the air we breathe into energy. The stream of energized air produced by properly executed and controlled deep breathing produces a current of inner energy which radiates throughout the entire body and can be channeled to the body areas that need it the most, on demand.”
— Nancy Zi

Originality

“True originality consists not in a new manner but in a new vision.”

-Edith Wharton, The Writing of Fiction, 1925

Each of us has eyes through which we see the world, and no two visions are exactly alike. But because we are conditioned to go along with the crowd, our vision gets blurred, and starts to look like everyone else’s. When we close our eyes, tap into our Source, and let Nature’s creativity and intelligence flow through us, we can restore our vision and our originality. We allow our inner artist to shine through!

Peace & Joy: Cat’s Angel Message for December 25, 2018

 

daily Angel Message sms

Peace & Joy: Cat’s Angel Message for December 25, 2018 

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


Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts, cause your mind to dwell on peace and joy. – Ernest Holmes


1225:  Today the Universe is asking us to perform a self check (it’s been awhile since we’ve done one!). Usually we are checking our balance or our current life path position, but today is a little different. Today’s check involves hidden negatives. We tend to hide things that we don’t like about ourselves, our job our situation or, negative thoughts about ourselves and others. The message is simple ” Hanging on to the negative things in your life offers no benefit to you or your loved ones. The time has come to unearth these things and heal them.” Start looking for the small hurtful places. The Winter Solstice with it’s message of new beginnings and light is a great time to activate the self healing process. While this kind of work is never easy it will help us not only on our path, it will also usher in beneficial new blessings. We are never alone, the Goddess, Angels and the Ascended Masters are all here to help!


Archangel Michael surrounds with his loving protection at all times especially during times of self healing. The Ascended Master Mother Mary helps fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves. And,  the Celtic Sun God Lugh helps us to heal from painful and negative situations. He is the embodiment of the sun itself and his energy helps to burn things away.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Black Obsidian. This stone not only protects it also helps to bring negative energy to the surface where it can be dispelled and provides support during times of change. It takes the “things” that we’ve hidden and composts them into positive soil to support out new growth.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Harvesting  Abundance: Cat’s Angel Message for August 28, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on 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!


The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest. – William Blake


828:  The Pagan theme for the month of August is the first harvest. This started on the first with the festival of Lughnasadh and it applies to today’s number as well. It’s time to harvest some of the seed thoughts we planted a few months back to generate new areas of personal growth.

When we gratefully acknowledge our “Tiny Miracles” and do our part the Universe steps in and helps us out. Give yourself a BIG hug for all the wonderful things that you have accomplished so far this year!


The Angel Gamaliel shows us the blessings and abundance that are ready to be harvested and helps us to make room for more. The Ascended Master Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha, shows that joy opens our hearts and minds so that we can clearly see life’s bounty and  the Celtic Sun god Lugh, the patron of the first harvest, shares the fiery energy that inspires new growth and sheds light in areas of darkness. Lugh helps us to find creative solutions to problems and fills us with a sense of divine magick and protection.


Try using Nebula Stone to help you see clearly the value in everything around you as well as promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.

 Clear Communication: Cat’s Angel Message for April 7, 2018 

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


 When you keep getting the wrong answers, try asking better questions. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie

47:  Yesterday we talked about our angelic support system and how it assists us. We are carrying that message over into today. The angels are reminding us that they can help us even more if we ask for specific help instead of asking in general terms. For example if you need extra money to pay your rent and you request “Angels please bring me money”, you might find $5.00 on the ground. However if you phrase your request “Angels, I need enough money to pay my rent and buy food, please help me now”, this open up all kinds of avenues for getting the help you need. Remember that help comes in many forms so allow yourself to be receptive on all levels and that you are worthy of receiving blessings in all forms. Our angels are with us all the time and since their mission is to help us never be afraid to ask for help!

Today we will be working with  two Archangels. Raziel helps us manifest the things we need and Sandalphon who delivers our prayers and requests to the Divine  We can also call upon the Hindu God Ganesh who promotes abundance and helps to remove the obstacles in our way and the Celtic Sun God Lugh who helps us to solve problems and find creative solutions.


In conjunction with today’s helpers add Angelite to strengthen your communication with the angels. Citrine is sometimes called the money stone and placing one in your wallet promotes prosperity and abundance. If positive flow is what you need both Amethyst and Garnet can help in that area.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
