Change Is A Good Thing : Cat’s Angel Message for April 6, 2021

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

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!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive life choices. He understands that it’s hard for us to let go of people and situations even though they are holding us back or causing us unintended stress, drama or harm. Jeremiel can help ease these transitions and reminds us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future.

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 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.

The Greek goddess Nike, Lady of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things that we have accomplished. By acknowledging them we can increase our faith in ourselves as a creator. She 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!”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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.

Blue-Green Chrysocolla helps make smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity by inviting the energy of universal love into our personal experiences. It brings our inner strength and self awareness forward which keeps our energy balanced and our creative side active which allows us to handle change more effectively.

Zincite helps to remove energy blocks which gets our life force flowing, which aids our manifestation process. It also restores our energy when it becomes depleted by giving away too much of ourselves to others.

Thought For The Day: March 22, 2021 “Nothing To Fear”

Happy Monday,

Change is a thing of perspective. How we see it determines our reaction to it. If we see change as an adventure we find that we are more open to receiving the blessings that the universe sends our way. While we may not be able to use these blessings to the fullest extent right now, we WILL find a place for them as our adventure propels us forward. Don’t be afraid, go with the flow and adventure on!

227 Today the Universe is asking us to focus on our life path. Each person’s life path is unique. While we may travel together at times there always comes a point when we branch off to blaze a new trail. Move forward with faith and confidence as you navigate your chosen paths and side trails. Ask for divine guidance and trust in your intuition and follow these breadcrumbs as you create your life. By staying optimistic and expecting the best we help good things find us on our journey. If the path you are on doesn’t feel right make the necessary adjustments to get back on track. Be sure that you occasionally perform a self-review.


Ask yourself:

Am I where I want to be?
Does this resonate and bring me joy?
Is there anything I need to change?

She tells us: ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must face your fears and release the past. Change and circumstance are inviting you to choose a path. It is your choice so make the one that is best for you.”

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.

25: Change is an ongoing part of life and without it things would be pretty boring. The way we see these changes is based on our perception. If we see them 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.

105: Change sometimes happens when we aren’t paying attention and this can be a little scary. However, change is a good thing and when it happens it means we are ready for new growth. Over the last several months we have worked on initiating change in our lives and by doing our best and holding it change in a positive light things progress more smoothly. Be assertive, stay focused, and follow your inner guidance. Today the angels are asking us to stay in the present and acknowledge the changes we have initiated, want to make happen or that are happening now. Asking for assistance from the Divine and from the angels works to our benefit as does asking for the grace and courage to make these changes a reality. Remember to implement your creative thinking to find new ways and ideas that will help you to make things happen.

Thought For The Day: August 21, 2020 “It’s Just Natural”

Happy Friday,

Change is a natural part of life. If everything stayed the same forever and ever wouldn’t that BE boring? We would always be the same, never growing or evolving, never experiencing the adventures that life offers. Let go of something that you are holding on to today, just loosen your grip. By doing this you are inviting some new things to slip in. It revitalizes the spirit and rekindles our sense of adventure. What are you ready to let go of?

Letting It Be:  Cat’s Angel Message for August 15, 2020

 

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!


Sometimes the best way to embrace change is to let things unfold naturally.

~Cat


815: The angels are reminding us that back in May we laid the groundwork for initiating change in our lives and that we should start seeing results very soon if we are not seeing them already. These changes will be the catalyst that starts a new flow of abundance. During this time it’s important to remember that you and your loved ones are safe and cared for, so don’t stress! The key is to stay positive and let things happen naturally. When an opportunity presents itself don’t be afraid to grab it now. While waiting until it cycles back around is an option it’s possible that it will no longer be what you need as your personal variables will have changed. Use the opportunities as stepping stones to create a path to bigger and better things!

Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews and changes. He can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently as well as the areas that need attention and helps us to let go of what we no longer need.

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 stop fighting the things that we have no control over, which blocks our problem solving and creative flow.

The Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake, they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that change must be embraced, not ignored, or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” it is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion by staying true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others. It helps us to live in the moment making it easier to snag the blessings given to us. It is also a soothing stone that calms emotions during times of change.

 

Hematite helps us stay grounded and promotes feelings of safety. Hematite also brings mental clarity through focus and concentration which is essential to the letting go process which accompanies change.

 

Okenite can be used to help clear away obstacles and teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when allowing 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.

Inner Journey:

WHY MEDITATE?

“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
— Buddha

Meditation is considered an essential practice for those who seek self-knowledge and self-mastery. Why? Basically, meditation brings awareness of how our minds work. Over time, we become watchers, able to detach from the thoughts and emotions that play out in our minds.

With this detachment, we gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions. We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas.

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius

If you knew of a spectacular mountain that was very, very tall, yet climbable. And if it was well established that from its peak, you could literally see all the love that bathes the world, dance with the angels, and party with the gods. Would you curse or celebrate each step you took as you ascended it?

Right-o!

Life is that mountain and each day a step.

Problems/Solutions
“Clinging to the past is the problem. Embracing change is the answer.”

-Gloria Steinem
Sometimes it might look like change is the problem. But really it’s that we’re making change a problem for ourselves because we are resisting it! Change can be a great solution and can open up all kinds of wonderful opportunities for us. There’s a time when we need to step outside of the boundaries we have created and just go for it!
