Thought For The Day: April 16, 2019 “The Rewards of Change”

Happy Tuesday,

Change is a part of life and how we see it is a matter of perspective. Some  see change as a scary thing and focus solely on what they “will lose or have to give up”.  The thing to remember is that change brings it’s own rewards. With every “loss” there is something new that we gain.  When faced with change do yourself a favor and look at the whole picture and balance your “losses” with “gains”. Change is an adventure…… embrace it!

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

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!

Thought For The Day: March 28, 2019 “Adapt”

Happy Thursday,

Why is change so scary? Each of us will have a different answer to that question. We all want to be the best person that can be and find joy and happiness. However when change comes knocking we often run and hide or fight against it even though we know that it’s necessary and will benefit us in the long run. Our challenge  lies in our ability to adapt. If change comes knocking today with an offer to make a positive improvement grab your courage and embrace the willingness to adapt to something new and better.

We Change: Cat’s Angel Message for March 25, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

We Change: Cat’s Angel Message for March 25, 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.


Goes the song, “we change, we change.” But the music is still mine. – Mary Anne Radmacher


325:  Change is an important part of life. It can happen gradually or drop in out of the blue. To promote our own growth we need to be willing to embrace  those changes no matter how or when they happen. By fighting these changes we find ourselves stuck emotionally, mentally and spiritually. However, when we allow change to happen it invites new things and people into our lives. This bring new growth and opportunities that will help us as we create our path. If the proverbial winds of change are blowing through your life the Angels and Ascended Masters are sending you this message: ” These changes are for the best even though some may be difficult to accept or seem scary. We are here to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe and cared for during this time. We are surrounding you with protective, peaceful energy and are helping to take away any pain, fear or negativity that you may be experiencing.”


Change comes in many forms and we have some powerful helpers on our side. Archangel Azrael not only helps comfort the dying and help them to cross over, he also helps the grieving to cope with the changes and feelings that losing a loved one creates. Archangel Jeremiel helps us in all areas of life changes, while Archangel Michael surrounds us with protection. The Celtic Goddess Cordelia also assists with life changes and helps us to see, feel and find joy in the new process and The Ascended Master El Morya helps to stop negative thought patterns and the energy they generate. He teaches us how to stay centered and focused on our commitment to create a better life for ourselves.


Sacred Stones that help with change are Smokey Quartz which helps keep our perspective grounded while it removes fear of change and promotes awareness of your dreams and goals. Iolite gently eases the pain that change can bring and helps us to live in the moment and Crocoite helps ease the bigger shifts of change like death or divorce by soothing the emotions and helping us to cope.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Outgrowing Your Shoes: Cat’s Angel Message for March 5, 2019

Outgrowing Your Shoes: Cat’s Angel Message for March 5, 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.


Let your dreams outgrow the shoes of your expectations. – Ryunosuke Satoro


35: Change is on your horizon and the ascended masters are reminding us that they are here to help. Like all changes the ones headed your way will benefit you in the long run. So take the initiative and let go of some things that no longer serve you or that you have outgrown. This makes room for the new blessings and opportunities you have been searching for. Not only will this energize you it will also serve to increase your spiritual awareness and power. Stay open and be sure to allow your intuitive and creative skills to guide you as well. Add a little self care into the mix and it will  help you ground, center and get back on track.


Archangel Jophiel reminds 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. She reminds us that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp. 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. And the Yoruban goddess Oya says  ” My child 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 the following. Tangerine Quartz which helps to increase our receptivity to Divine inspiration while it stimulates the mind and enhances overall creativity. It fills us with hope and joy as it restores our feelings of self worth and Lava Stone which is a powerful symbol of our own energy. It is a stone of rebirth and helps us to burn away unneeded layers so we can initiate new growth.

Don’t Stop On The Track: Cat’s Angel Message for February 15, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

Don’t Stop On The Track: Cat’s Angel Message for February 15, 2019 

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


Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. – Will Rogers


215: Today the Universe is letting us know that change is on the horizon and these changes will make us stronger and make our lives better. Change is a normal part of life and we all go through it. Some of these changes we initiate, some are surprises and some happen so gradually that we hardly know they are happening. Regardless of how these changes happen keep in mind that the nature and direction of our thoughts will play an important role.  If we are stuck in a negative holding pattern the process can be scary and stressful. However, by surrounding ourselves with optimistic and confident energy it’s easier to meet change head on.  This allows things to happen naturally and makes the process easier so that we can embrace change with an attitude of adventure and excitement. Remember to check your progress and path often. If it feels right…. it is. But if you have doubts or it makes you uncomfortable be bold and make the necessary adjustments to keep you on track.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information we need when we need it. This assists us during the process of change 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 us to gently diffuse unpleasant situations that change sometimes causes. And the Greek goddess Hecate offers her assistance today, reminding us  that ” 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.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Tiger Iron. This stone , which is a combination of Jasper, Hematite and Tiger’s Eye, helps to promote change by opening space within and providing the energy to accomplish what’s needed by generating new and creative ways and ideas to make the changes easier.

Daily Good: The New and Ancient Story of Interbeing

“Why does the sun shine? A random result of coalescing gases igniting nuclear fusion? Or is it in order to give its light and warmth to Life? Why does the rain fall? Is it the senseless product of blind chemical processes of evaporation and condensation? Or is it to water life? Why do you seek to pour forth your song? Is it to show off your genetic fitness to attract a mate, or is it to contribute to a more beautiful world? We may fear those first answers but it is the second that carries the ring of truth.” Charles Eisenstein shares more in this piece

MNN: The weird and beautiful life hiding in Antarctica’s frigid depths

Researchers are quickly scrambling to catalog these unique species before climate change impacts their icy habitats.

In July 2017, an iceberg with a volume of water twice that of Lake Erie and encompassing some 2,300 square miles broke free of the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica. As it drifted away, the giant 620-foot thick berg uncovered a stretch of ocean last exposed to sunlight as long as 120,000 years ago

EarthSky News: Watch for a young moon after sunset

These next several evenings – February 6, 7 and 8, 2019 – present a grand time to go young moon hunting. At new moon on February 4, 2019, the moon was lost in the sun’s glare all day long, so it was invisible in our sky at that time. But now that the moon has moved a touch east of the setting sun, as seen from Earth, the moon is out for a brief while in the western sky after sundown.

Patheos-Pagan: What is Pagan Cooking?

I seem to have a bit of a reputation for cake…and I must admit I do love baking. I find it quite therapeutic. Recently I was asked to write a book proposal for ‘pagan cooking’ and of course I was excited about the prospect but then it got me to thinking, what exactly is ‘pagan cooking’?

Inner Journey:

ACCEPT CHANGE

“We cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning; for what in the morning was true will in evening become a lie.”
— C.G. Jung

Life continually evolves. We’re always moving into new experiences, new possibilities. This constant change unsettles the personality, which finds security in stability. But with life always in flux, that security is an illusion. We experience pain by trying to hold on to things that are not solid.

Life becomes joyful when we can open to the constant flow and ride freely with it. This requires us to let go of the need to control. We need to learn to trust.

“Can it then be that what we call the ‘self’ is fluid and elastic? It evolves, strikes a different balance with every new breath.”
— Wayne Muller

“We’re never the same; notice how you’re called to write something entirely different about a topic you responded to weeks or months ago.”
— Patrice Vecchione

Beloved masters, as the higher frequencies of Light and Creator wisdom permeate the Earth and humanity, a radical shift in consciousness is taking place. More and more precious Souls are questioning their basic beliefs and examining their life patterns, the many structures they have built, both physical and mental, which make up their personal reality
