Today’s Message: Welcome , Welcome!

816: Our thoughts play an important role in our ability to manifest the things we need, both within ourselves and in our lives. By embracing an optimistic and hopeful attitude we are effectively setting out the “Welcome” mat to help draw all the things that will enrich our well being. But first, we have to move away from those pesky negative thought patterns. Today, the Universe is suggesting that we take some time to sweep off the step and shake out our “Welcome ” mat to release any lingering negativity that is hanging around or lurking in corners. Take a deep breath, give yourself a big hug and affirm that you are worthy of receiving prosperity and abundance, and then allow yourself to welcome them with an open heart!

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 Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

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 then choose the ones that best 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”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

The Agate humble 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 get the most of our life experiences.

Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it helps dispel fixed ideas and thoughts and brings the rational thinking forward so that new information is easily accepted. It is a protective stone that draws away negative energy and stress. It cleans and re-energizes the aura and promotes overall harmony and order.

Sunstone brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. It brings out our natural optimism, self-confidence and promotes our natural flow of abundance as it soothes our fear of change and the accompanying stress that change can bring. Sunstone has a strong connection to light and helps to harness the re-energizing power of the sun during meditation and everyday life. It is linked to all benevolent deities and brings good fortune and luck.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

OMTimes: Escape from Self-Sabotaging Habits

How well are you taking care of yourself? Do you take time for yourself, or are there so many distractions in your life that you are last on the list of your busy schedule?
If we are not taking time for ourselves, it’s difficult for us to be giving love to someone else because we run out of energy. If there is nothing left for us, there sure isn’t going to be anything left for anyone else!

Spirituality & Health: 5 Ways to Sit Less to Save Your Brain

You’ve heard that sitting is the new smoking: bad for our hearts, lungs, and a leading cause of obesity. A new study from UCLA suggests that too much sitting is also bad for our brains, and that sedentary behavior is linked to changes in parts of the brain that are critical for memory. Sorry, what was I saying? I work from a computer all day, and as much as I want to move more, it’s really challenging. But if sitting is going to literally thin my brain, I’m incentivized! Here are five ways to sit less, so you can think ….

Inner Journey: Attachment

“The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of divine union. For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for until the cord be broken, the bird cannot fly.”
— Saint John of the Cross

“Attachment to spiritual things is… just as much an attachment as inordinate love of anything else.”
— Thomas Merton

“The tighter you squeeze, the less you have.”
— Zen Saying

A Note from the Universe

Nice job helping raise the sun this morning! The colors over Fiji were especially impressive. The warming of the Adriatic was right on time. A few Egyptians up early enough even wondered if Ra wasn’t back at the helm.

The hungry child in Mongolia said to say, “Hi!” The sad monk in Tibet, “Thanks for the laugh!” The realtor in Minnesota asked, “Are you sure about the farmer’s market?” The dancer in Rome, “Don’t tell a soul…” And the sage in Djibouti says, “You have exactly what it takes to have financial security for myself and family!”

Tell me, any recollection of all your other-worldly to-ings and fro-ings, yet? Or are we still pretending you’re just mortal?

If you only knew…

Perception

“Change your thoughts, and in the twinkling of an eye, all your conditions change. Your world is a world of crystallized ideas, crystallized words. Sooner or later, you reap the fruits of your words and thoughts.”

-Florence Scovel Shinn

Our perceptions are all in our mind. So it makes sense that if we change our mind, we change our perceptions. And when we change our perceptions, we change our reality! We can experience more of the Truth of this wonderful world, the beauty, the peace, the prosperity, the abundance, the clarity. Choose to see it. Choose to live it!

-Lissa Coffey

Beliefnet: 7 Steps to Reconnect With Yourself

Sometimes due to circumstances, a big life change, the dissolving of a long-term relationship, a health issue, or other reasons we realize we have lost touch with our true self. During these times we often experience feeling frustrated, scared for the future, anxious, unfulfilled and stuck. We feel lost because at some point we became disconnected from who we really are. This often occurs as adults try to fit themselves into societal norms, relationship expectations or are just trying to survive to such a degree that there is not the capacity to focus on anything else. To protect ourselves we may tuck away our true nature and shut the door so we can just get through what we need to get through.
