Adrift in the liberating, late light

they make their way to my front porch
and flutter near the glassed-in bulb,
translucent as a thought suddenly
wondered aloud, illumining the air
that’s thick with honeysuckle and dusk.

Daily Good: Wild Mumbai

“Every night for the past eleven years, Rajesh Sanap and Zeeshan Mirza have spent the post-dinner hours combing the woods behind their homes. Like restive sprites, the young men skirt ponds, bash through spiky hedgerows, upturn rocks, shake up leaf litter, and thread through dirt trails hairy with undergrowth. In the course of their nocturnal walkabouts, they’ve found about a dozen arachnids, including two that are entirely new to science: a rangy, amber-hued scorpion and a compact, ashen tarantula with lean limbs covered in white fur.

On August 14 and 15, 2019, everyone around the world (except far-northern Arctic latitudes) will see a full-looking moon lighting up the nighttime from dusk until dawn.

Patheos-Pagan: 3 ways to make Sun Water

So often we make and use Moon Water, but have you ever considered making water infused with the energy of the sun? Sun water is fun to make, easy to use and can connect you with the energy of the sun. Within my own practice, the acknowledgment of the Sun plays an important part. For the Celts the Sun was sacred, it was worshiped in many forms.

Inner Journey:

GIVE TO YOURSELF FIRST

“First say to yourself what you would be, and then do what you have to do.”
— Epictetus

Do you want more in your life? More love? More happiness? More money? More satisfaction? Then explore how you can BE more.

In the Delfin Knowledge System, Leslie Fieger advises, “You can have more when you are willing to give more. You must begin this process by giving more to yourself. Give yourself more time; give yourself more attention; give yourself more love; give yourself more of what you want. Then decide how to offer the more that you are (and have) to the world and you will receive even more back in return.”

“Let the waters settle you will see stars and moon mirrored in your Being.”
— Rumi

Today’s Magickal Creature: Mermaids and other Marine Monsters

With most of our blue planet covered by water, it’s little wonder that, centuries ago, the oceans were believed to hide mysterious creatures including sea serpents and mermaids. Merfolk (mermaids and mermen) are, of course, the marine version of half-human, half-animal legends that have captured human imagination for ages. One source, the “Arabian Nights,” described mermaids as having “moon faces and hair like a woman’s but their hands and feet were in their bellies and they had tails like fishes.”

Ideas

“You talk of our having an idea; we do not have an idea. The idea has us, and martyrs us, and scourges us, and drives us into the arena to fight and die for it, whether we want to or not.”
-Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)

When we get a really good idea, we can tell that it is a really good idea because it won’t let go of us. We think about it, dream about it, and pursue it until we can make it a reality. It’s like the Universe is tapping on our shoulders, saying: “This is it, come on, let’s go!” How could we resist?

-Lissa Coffey

Whatever you have planned or prepared for today, it probably won’t happen according to the script. Be flexible and expect the unexpected. It may not be anything big, so don’t completely abandon your agenda unless you must. It could just be a day of endless interruptions.

To Shrink or Expand: Cat’s Angel Message for April 5, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

To Shrink or Expand: Cat’s Angel Message for April 5, 2019 

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


Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. – Anais Nin


45:  In previous messages we’ve talked about how change is necessary for our overall growth. Unwillingness to embrace change not only only keeps us from growing, it keeps us from moving forward and fulfilling our dreams and goals. Our energy becomes blocked and all the wonderful things that Universe is trying to send us doesn’t arrive.  How we view change lies in our perception of it. There are two choices, fear change or see change as a new adventure. Today is a reminder to embrace the changes that life is offering. The Universe is asking us to have faith in ourselves, our helpers and our human support system.  Ask for help, courage and strength and they will be there for you. The changes that you make will be a good thing and will benefit all areas of your life.  Be bold and embrace these changes head on!


Archangel Jeremiel 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 Maitreya who shows us that the path to change ins’t so scary when faced with laughter and joy.  And the Greek goddess Nike says, Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include: Zincite which helps us manifest our full potential as we embrace life’s changes. Bloodstone brings the ability to adapt to change more easily and Chrysocolla which allows us to accept change with calmness and serenity making for smoother transitions.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Your Creation: Cat’s Angel Message for February 5, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

Your Creation: Cat’s Angel Message for February 5, 2019 

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


The dream you are living is your creation. It is your perception of reality that you can change at any time. – don Miguel Ruiz


25:  Change is an ongoing part of life and without it life would be pretty boring. The way we see these change is based on our perception. If we see these changes in a negative light it can create difficulties for us. But if we look for something positive in them then we grow in unimagined ways. If you are experiencing changes right now or changes are on your horizon the angels want you to know that things are going according to your divine plan and that these changes truly are for the best. They will bring you a much needed overhaul and a fresh outlook. So have faith in yourself and remember that the Universe is on your side and that you are safe and protected. Embrace these changes and flourish in this new cycle! Our keywords for today are “Change- Flow- Growth”


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations.  The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps to diffuse unpleasant situations that change sometimes creates. He teaches us that peace and healing can be found through color, so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant. And the Hawaiian goddess Pele reminds us that “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following,  Okenite which can be used to help clear away obstacles and teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start and helps replace bad habits with good ones. And,   Tourmaline which promotes courage when we are faced with new challenges.

Thought For The Day: July, 11, 2018 “Now Boarding!”

Happy Wednesday,

Is it a good day or a bad day? Well, I guess it depends on what you’re looking for. If we’re having a bad day we sometimes go out of our way to find more bad things (regardless of how small) to keep the “pity train” rolling. Take a deep breath and look for the “One Good Thing”  even if it has nothing to do with the current situation. This simple exercise clears the mind, and opens the windows on the pity train, giving us the breath of fresh air needed to change the landscape of perception.

Taking Responsibility: Cat’s Angel Message for June 17, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Taking Responsibility: Cat’s Angel Message for June 17, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


If you take the responsibility for your life, you can start changing it. – Osho


617:  We hear a lot about positive affirmations and how using them can transform our lives and our thinking patterns. Now before you start rolling your eyes and thinking “Geez Cat, I don’t have time for affirmations….” here’s something to think about. Every time you alter a thought pattern from negative to positive you’ve created a personal affirmation. It’s as simple as changing “That’s never going to happen for me.” to “What I can I do to make this happen? or This will happen for me”. As I said yesterday, negative thinking blocks our powers of manifestation (and our flow of energy). This upsets our balance (see June’s Theme) and hits us with temporary setbacks. Today the angels are asking us to watch our thought patterns and change negatives into positives. Perform a balance check and ground and center if needed. Your reality is how you perceive it so be confident and move forward in your own power.


Archangel Uriel helps us to gain better spiritual understanding on a more personal level. He aids us with problem solving and making well informed decisions which impact our process of manifestation. The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”, and the Hindu God Ganesh works closely with Lakshmi. He is the remover of the obstacles that crop up and the ones we create for ourselves, while promoting peace and harmony.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Charoite. This stone can be used to reduce stress and worry as it helps us to overcome fear, and it helps to ground our spiritual self into everyday reality and provides perspective.

Thought For The Day: May 29, 2018 “As We Get Older”

Happy Tuesday,

Are you the same person you were 10 years ago? 5 years….. 1 year? I know that I’m not and I’m pretty sure that you aren’t either! As we get older our perspectives change and the trivial things lose their importance and we are able to embrace the person we are  and the person we are striving to be. Pretty cool huh?

A Joyful Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

A Joyful Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. 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.


The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one. – M. Scott Peck


522: This month is about change and most of our work has been on the personal levels (mental and emotional). Today’s number however, will focus on changes to our spiritual outlook.  Positive choices, life lessons,courage, faith, insight and Universal love are all key for today. It sounds like a lot but these things are what help shape our own unique brand of spirituality. When change arrives it brings many things including a change of perspective which flows into our being on all levels including the spiritual.

The Universe is reminding us not to ignore our spirituality. Embrace it by staying strong in faith and by remaining optimistic, as it is these things that help build a strong spiritual base from which all good things grow.


Archangel Jeremiel oversees life changes. He guides us through making the best possible choices during times of change and Archangel Uriel can help with life lessons by ensuring that we learn from the past and continue to move forward with confidence. The Ascended Master Padre Pio teaches us that we can heal by embracing our spirituality and guides us through periods of spiritual growth and the Greek Goddess Nike teaches us how to acknowledge our accomplishments, which opens the doors to new ways of doing and seeing things.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Cavansite. This stone helps to guide us through major life changes as well as helping us learn from past experiences so that we don’t make the same mistakes/choices again. It also helps us to retain information that applies to spiritual  growth.
