Inner Journey:

QUESTION YOUR INTENTION

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else ….”
— Archibald Alexander
Why are you doing what you are doing?
Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Are you doing what you are doing for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons, or in honest service? Maybe you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose. This is a great way to become more conscious.
Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.
“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Vegetarianism

“It is nearly 50 years since I was assured by a conclave of doctors that if I did not eat meat, I should die of starvation.”

-George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

This discussion came about by the suggestion of one of our subscribers, and I think there is a lot to say about it. Now before all our meat-eating readers take offense, rest assured that I am not trying to convert anyone! I believe that diet is a choice. I have made the choice to be vegan – that’s the vegetarian without eggs or dairy. It can be challenging at times, particularly when dining at restaurants that do not provide such an enlightened menu – but I have found the benefits, both in terms of health and spiritual growth, to far outweigh the inconveniences.

daily Angel Message sms

A Storm of Thoughts: Cat’s Angel Message for February 17, 2019 

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


Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts or happenings. It consist mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever flowing through one’s head. – Mark Twain


217:  Do you remember the old TV commercial that said “A mind is a terrible thing to waste?” Well there’s a lot of truth in that statement on many levels. By using this amazingly powerful gift we are capable of doing and manifesting great things. The key is to focus on:

  • Things that bring you joy
  • Things we want to improve in our lives and for the lives of our loved ones.
  • Staying true to ourselves and believing that we are worthy.

Today the angels are letting you know that your positive thoughts and intentions have been heard and that you are headed in the right direction. You have so many good reasons to be optimistic about your future. As you grab your courage and embrace your power this helps the angels to help you in more ways than you can imagine. Good things are headed your way so stay focused on what you want to achieve. It’s a win-win situation!

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 are Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions and Zincite removes energy blocks gets our life force flowing, which aids the manifestation process.

Sow, Wait, Harvest: Cat’s Angel Message for February 1, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.
I inherited that calm from my father,
who was a farmer.
You sow, you wait for good or bad weather,
you harvest, but working is something you always need to do.
– Miguel Indurain

 

21:  This month is all about stepping up and believing in yourself. Embrace the “I CAN” and “I AM” consciousness to jump start the new month. Stay focused on what you want to create for yourself and explore new avenues for growth. Your challenge lies in the letting go of outdated beliefs. Tomorrow is Imbolc which symbolizes new beginnings which makes this a great time to start planting Thought Seeds. Sow your inner garden now, and tend to the seeds you planted last month.be clear about  what you want to accomplish. No need to be too grandiose in your plans as sometimes starting small is better and provides more options. If you need direction ask the Universe and the angels for additional guidance.

 

 Archangel Michael points us in the right direction and helps us find our courage and the  motivation we need  to commit to our path. The Celtic goddess Brigid, who is honored at Imbolc fills us with inspiration and creative energy. She reminds us that with these gifts we can navigate any situation. Our Sacred Stones for the day are:

 

Carnelian which helps us in tending our seed thoughts and helps us to access our creative thought process.

 Embracing the Energy of Mother Earth: Cat’s Angel Message for January 30, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

Embracing the Energy of Mother Earth: Cat’s Angel Message for January 30, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

The earth is the mother of all people. Chief Joseph

130:  Today we are surrounded with divine feminine energy. Yes, goddess energy! She is asking us to pay attention to our intuition (which we talked about yesterday). It is through our intuition that we see our own divine nature and the critical role we play in our own destiny. The goddess also reminds us to pay attention to the moon cycles which affect how you feel and add power to your manifestation process. Tomorrow will be the second Full Moon of the month. This doesn’t happen often but when it does it adds extra Oomph! to workings. So get your ducks in a row and set things in motion to make the most of this powerful gateway. Remember to be crystal clear about what you want or want to make happen as it will add some extra ‘fertilizer” to your thought seeds. The Goddess is always here, she is the earth below our feet, the sky above us and found in every living creature. Like the angels, she is always there to surround her children with loving knowledge.

Archangel Ariel helps us to embrace our own divine magick which strengthens our manifestation process. Since she works with the earth and environment (nature angels and sprite too) she can help those unfamiliar with goddess work connect with her. There are numerous goddess, however the earth mother Gaia is probably the easiest to get to know. She is literally everywhere and accessible to all. Our Sacred Stones for the day are:

Pale blue Larimar provides a direct connection to the Divine Feminine .

Moss Agate is sometimes called the gardeners stone and is a good one to help connect to Gaia.

Moonstone is a highly spiritual stone that helps us to connect to the moon energy and promotes new beginnings.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Looking Within: Cat’s Angel Message for January 25, 2018

Looking Within: Cat’s Angel Message for January 25, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

Your visions will become clear only
when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes.
– Carl Jung

125: Changes are an ongoing part of life, some we initiate for ourselves while others hit us out of the blue.  Our focus today is on changes that we initiate.  When we make requests of the angels and the Universe it’s remember to keep your intentions clear. Be specific as this helps the Universe direct the right opportunity your way and provides a powerful focus point for you as well. Today, the angels are telling you that your prayers have been heard. Their message is ” Change = Growth” and the things that are happening for you now will be good for you and those around you. Turn your fear and worry over to us to deal with so that your focus remains uninterrupted.” Keep in mind that the answers and opportunities you seek can come from both expected and unexpected sources so don’t cut yourself short by looking in only one direction!

Keep working with Archangel Michael today.  He gives us courage and direction during times of change as well as offering protection. The Greek sun god Apollo assists us by easing stress during times of change and shows us the path  to creating a happy ending that benefits our situation, wear the colors of gold and yellow today to connect with his sunny energy, and the Ascended Master Buddha helps us find balance and maintain it so that we can find our peaceful center.

Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Citrine to help balance our energy and which takes negative energy and cleanses it , turning it into something more positive.

Golden Calcite promotes an optimistic mindset as it clears away self limiting beliefs,

Tiger’s Eye helps to express our intentions clearly by showing us the difference between wishful thinking and what we really NEED.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
