ThoughtCo: Brighid, the Hearth Goddess of Ireland

In Irish mythological cycles, Brighid (or Brighit), whose name is derived from the Celtic brig or “exalted one”, is the daughter of the Dagda, and therefore one of the Tuatha de Dannan. Her two sisters were also called Brighid, and were associated with healing and crafts. The three Brighids were typically treated as three aspects of a single deity, making her a classic Celtic triple goddess.

Daily Good: Giving Directions

Like most of us, you’ve probably been asked for directions at least once in your life. While men are notorious for failing to admit when they’re lost and women less so, little research has been done on how directions are imparted and the characterization of the individual giving them. “Giving directions is a form of storytelling,” says Akiko Busch. “When people advise you to take the longest, most complicated route, it is their way of prolonging the pleasure of the journey.” In this Travel and Leisure article, Busch elaborates on how this simple act is often far more intimate than we realize, relying not only on our memory, but on our internal map of the places we hold most dear. { read more }

Be The Change

The next time you ask for directions, pay attention to the route you’re given. What does it tell you about the giver?

Elephant Journal: The Undeniable Significance of Fall.

For most of my life, I have identified as a summer child.
Warm summer days, cloudless and perfect, were what I craved.

Of course, I still appreciate this. There is an air of ease and simple joy that arises during this time. School is out. Plants and animals come out to play. All around, life moves at a sweet, untethered pace like a melting popsicle, which can be either fast or slow, or both.

MNN: This plant may have made Vikings go berserk before battle

More than a thousand years ago, Viking armies knew a thing or two about instilling dread in those who would stand in their way.

Many of their victims lived in monasteries in the British Isles, a favorite source of slaves and plunder for raiding parties.

EarthSky News: Meet Fomalhaut, the loneliest star

Tonight, look for the loneliest star. Which one is that? Many people would say the answer is Fomalhaut, a bright star in the constellation Piscis Austrinus the Southern Fish. Fomalhaut is a bright star – visible from all but far-northern latitudes – located in a region of the sky that contains only very faint stars. So it appears solitary in the night sky

Patheos-Pagan: The Witch Reborn in Autumn: Spiritual Death and the Dance of Bones

Do you hear their call? The night wandering spirits of the Witch Mother’s horde beckon me this time of year, as does she, calling me to dance with them. The spirits of the land join with the fallen leaves, celebrating the season of letting go. As the leaves release the tree, so do I cast off what binds. Finding freedom in shedding a form that no longer serves us. The Dance of Bones, where all is reduced to the soul and the entrapments of the material world removed is nigh.

Inner Journey:

WHY? WHY? WHY?

“As long as one keeps searching, the answers come.”
— Joan Baez

Asking ourselves ‘why?’ helps us delve deeply into our main motives — why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, ‘Why am I…?’ Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else….”
— Archibald Alexander

A Note from the Universe

The Learning Game:

When there is ease and simplicity in your life, it’s because earlier you learned a lot.

When there is resistance and obstacles in your life, it’s because there’s even more to learn.

And learning even more, is pretty much the main reason you’re there.

Classy dismissed,

The Universe

Conscience

“Let me consider this as a resolution by which I pledge myself to act in all variety of circumstances and to which I must recur often in times of carelessness and temptation – to measure my conduct by the rule of conscience.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Just as conscience is a compass, it is also a measurement devise, according to Emerson. We really know how well we are doing, we don’t need anyone’s judgment or opinion of our behavior – we have our own conscience to mark our progress. There is nothing as freeing as a clear conscience.

-Lissa Coffey

A New Day: Cat’s Angel Message for September 10, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. – Eleanor Roosevelt


910: In many of my daily messages I talk about keeping our thoughts elevated to a positive level, and today is one of those days. Sometimes this can be difficult. Especially when something negative happens and our thoughts and mood take a nosedive into the basement. The key is to do your best to let it go and allow yourself to move on. Today we are receiving assistance from Spirit (Divine, Goddess, God, etc) in keeping our thoughts elevated particularly in areas that pertain to “Why am I here?”. Allow yourself to absorb new ideas that come out of the blue. These will provide needed and valuable insights that will help us along our path. Remember, information comes in many forms and that positive energy helps us to draw what we need to us like a magnet!


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 (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 Celtic goddess Brigid helps all who call to her by providing the direction and courage needed to prosper and grow. She says: “Gather the seeds that you have collected and choose the ones that represent your path. Tell me of your dreams and desires as you plant your seeds within your heart and mind and allow fire and light to fill you. “Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way as you nurture the seeds in your care”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Smoky Quartz helps to neutralize negative energy as it helps us to work through the fear of failure which can show up during times of change. It also promotes clear insight and focus which helps us to leave behind the things that no longer serve us and make room for the blessings headed your way.

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. It also helps to promote the feeling of brotherhood. It also helps to clear and activate the heart chakra which is essential to embracing gratitude while promoting a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity.

Rose Quartz today to bring inner peace and harmony. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. It helps to promote the softer, move loving view that we need to embrace gratitude, it soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. It works with the heart chakra to gently wash away negative feelings that we harbor against ourselves and lifts the emotions to promote joy and peace. It opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Joy of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for June 5, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

The Joy of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for June 5, 2019

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance our in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


The joy of life consists in the exercise of one’s energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal. – Aleister Crowley


65:  Remember the changes that we worked on last month? Well, the Angels are reminding us to give those “seeds of change” a little love and nourishment today. These seeds are very much like the physical seeds you plant in your outdoor garden. You have to care for them if they are to grow and produce results. Start looking for the signs that your “seeds have taken root” as you may start seeing good things beginning to take effect. Maybe a new job, a move or an opportunity that you won’t want to pass up. Don’t forget to give some attention to the seeds that are already producing and make sure they aren’t withering from neglect. Changes can be a little scary at first. However if we view them as an adventure we will find new growth popping all over!


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 clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And, the Celtic goddess Brigid helps all who call to her by providing the direction and courage needed to prosper and grow. She says: “Gather the seeds that you have collected and choose the ones that represent your path. Tell me of your dreams and desires as you plant your seeds within your heart and mind and allow fire and light to fill you. Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way as you nurture the seeds in your care”


The Sacred Stones for today include the following: Larimar which helps to ease our obsession for 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.  Chrysoprase which promotes hope and openness to new situations through personal insight. We can also use Cerussite to keep us grounded, and stimulate new growth while teaching us to be flexible and how to adapt to the changes we have made.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Hope and Confidence: Cat’s Angel Message for May 12, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope or confidence. – Helen Keller


512:  The work associated with change can be challenging to say the least. However, these changes that are taking place are for the best and the best FOR us. Today the universe is asking us to embrace the changes currently taking place. Transformations do take time but the benefits will definitely worth it as they help us to align with both life purpose and soul mission. The key is to meet change with openness and  optimism. This helps us to become more self reliant and confident as it  builds both trust and faith.This is the groundwork on which all new things start and the basis for personal fulfillment and happiness. Ask for help or guidance if you need it and remember that help comes in all forms and can arrive from any direction. Give yourself a BIG hug today, you deserve it!


Archangel Michael helps us to find the courage and direction that we need to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence. The Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us to find a cheerful and optimistic attitude and approach to working with the changes that life hands us.. And the Celtic goddess Brigid helps us to walk the path of the  loving warrior who holds on to their beliefs and meets challenges with an open and creative mind. Brigid tells us “Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:  Rose Quartz which when used with positive affirmative thinking will enhance that energy and help you remember your  the intentions you set. 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 and  Sunstone which brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. and  it brings out our natural optimism and self confidence as it soothes our fear of change and the accompanying stress it can bring.

Be Honest With Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for March 30, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

 

Be Honest With Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for March 30, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


We take refuge in pride, because we are afraid to tell the truth to ourselves. – Kakuzo Okakura


330:  Have you ever noticed that sometimes it’s hard to admit that we need help? It happens…..you know it does! While being self sufficient is a good thing there are times when we just can’t do it alone. The refusal to ask for or accept help is born out of pride and ego.While these things are good in small doses we have to know when to put them on the shelf when they get in the way. Sometimes all we need is someone to listen and sometimes we need a little more. Remember, there is absolutely no shame in asking for help. You can start with the Angels and the Ascended Masters, they are always available (I always ask Archangel Michael, he’s my go-to guy!) and ready to assist you in anything that brings peace to you and your loved ones.


Archangel Sandalphon delivers our prayers to the Divine and to the specific angels or ascended masters best suited for our current needs. 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 set aside things we have no control over. This helps us to get a clearer vision of what we really need. And the Celtic goddess Brigid activates our inspiration and creative thought process which brings clarity and focus. She reminds us that “Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way.”


Our Sacred Stones include the following:  Aqua Aura which helps us to work through depression, sadness, loss or grief. Sodalite which assists in calming fears and promoting self esteem and Angelite to help us to communicate with the angelic realms.

The Blessings of Spring: Cat’s Angel Message for March 20, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

The Blessings of Spring: Cat’s Angel Message for March 20, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” – Robin Williams 


320:  Today is Ostara, The Vernal Equinox and the first day of Spring! The Universe are reminding us about faith. Sometimes our faith is like the Winter season where things seem barren, empty or even hopeless. We see no results to our prayers or requests. Then all of a sudden we see new beginnings and new growth, just like what happens in the Spring time. Embrace this new season and see things with a fresh, new perspective. Believe with all your being that even though the results you want are not yet visible the Universe is working behind the scenes, wheels are turning and things are falling into place.


Today we honor the goddesses of Spring like Brigid (the maiden), Freya, Olwen, Blodewedd, Eostre, Persephone/Kore, or Cordielia. Spend some time outside today and look for the new growth that symbolizes rebirth and hope. The Welsh goddess Cordelia is a deity of nature and  Spring is her season.  She  reminds us that every season has it’s own unique beauty and healing energy. Embrace joy today to help you to escape stress and let go. “Healing can be found in nature. Allow the beauty that surrounds you to renew your spirit and fill your soul with pure joy.”


To honor this new season try using one of the following Sacred Stones and to promote Spring’s essence within.  Tree Agate (Dendritic) to strengthen your connection to the plant kingdom and help you to enjoy each moment. Green Aventurine promotes healing and infuses us with harmony as it balances yin/yang energy. Chrysoprase fills us with the sense of being a part of the divine plan and brings hope and personal insight. Moonstone helps us to see the new beginnings as they happen and Sunstone helps us to connect to the light and promotes a  joyous spirit.

The Fire and Light Of Imbolc: Cat’s Angel Message for February 2, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

 

The Fire and Light Of Imbolc: Cat’s Angel Message for February 2, 2019 

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

22:  Today is Imbolc also called Candlemas or the Festival of Light. The Universe is asking us to embrace the faith we have in ourselves and in the new beginnings this faith brings. Imbolc is a time of renewal and our number for today is one power and purpose. Just like the first signs of spring we push towards the light in an effort to grow. As we reach towards the light our faith empowers us to find fulfillment in achieving our dreams and goals. Don’t force to make things happen. This is another lesson that we can learn from nature. Grow with purpose yet allow things to unfold. By doing so we achieve an overall sense of balance which restores us to harmony. Take time today to reaffirm your faith and where you are on your path as you move into this new cycle. Open your mind and heart and guide your thought seeds toward the light.


The celebration of Imbolc honors the Celtic goddess Brigid. This Triple Goddess of flame and light helps us to purify ourselves and our thoughts. She also promotes inspiration, creativity and the fertility needed to help our thought seeds grow and flourish. She tells us “Today we begin a journey towards the light. Gather the seeds that you have collected and choose the ones that represent your path. Tell me of your dreams and desires as you plant your seeds within your heart and mind and allow fire and light to fill you. Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way as you nurture the seeds in your care”


The Sacred Stones associated with Imbolc include the following. Amethyst helps us to move forward. It is also a stone of change and helps us cope with the changes that new beginnings create. Bloodstone helps to get our creativity flowing and infuses our being with courage and vitality. Garnet stimulates our awareness of the now and helps us open the doors to our own unique creative energy and Turquoise provides mental clarity while promoting the peace and harmony necessary to simply allow things to unfold.
