The Best Portion of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for February 9, 2019 

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


That best portion of a man’s life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. – William Wordsworth


29:  In some respects we all share a very similar life purpose in that we all have something that we can share with others in need. These Humanitarian acts can be complex or as simple as a smile or hug, kind or encouraging words or just being a good listener. Today the Universe is reminding us that we are all qualified to do these small and simple things. Make time today to be there for someone else. Embrace self confidence and listen to your heart as it guides you on this path of service. If it resonates with your spirit you are on the right path. In helping others we often find that we are helping ourselves as well and small acts of compassion and kindness can make a big difference.


Archangel Zadkiel blesses us with mercy and compassion towards others and ourselves as he helps us to bring our divine light front and center. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. And the Greek goddess Artemis reminds us to use our intuitive skills to help others. She says “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are  Kunzite and Rhodonite. Kunzite is a  high vibration stone  that can help to create a balanced partnership with the Universe as it opens your heart to receiving Divine love. And gentle Rhodonite helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought. Co: Recipes for the Imbolc Sabbat

Imbolc is a great time of fire and feasting. It’s the celebration of the goddess Brighid, guardian of the hearth and homefires, as well as the season of the Lupercalia, and of the spring lambing season. For this sabbat, celebrate with foods that honor the hearth and home —breads, grains, and vegetables stored from fall, such as onions and potatoes—as well as dairy items.

Daily Good: On Compassion, Equanimity and Impermanence

“Compassion is practiced in two ways: subtly and overtly. You can subtly serve any person with whom you interact by allowing their pain to resonate deeply within you, and experiencing it completely so that it does not turn into suffering within you. This is the healthy alternative to both callous indifference and enervating enmeshment.” Author and mindfulness teacher Shinzen Young shares more in this collection of thought-provoking reflections

EarthSky News: Orion the Hunter is easy to spot

Tonight – or any winter evening – look for the constellation Orion the Hunter. It’s probably the easiest to pick out of all the constellations in the Northern Hemisphere winter sky (Southern Hemisphere summer sky). It’s identifiable by Orion’s Belt, three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row at the mid-section of the Hunter. See these stars? They are easy to spot on the sky’s dome.

Patheos-Pagan: Love is in the Air or is it?

“Love is in the air, everywhere I look around, Love is in the air, every sight and every sound…” As February draws near, this delightful song (Love is in the air by John Paul Young) seems to play over and over in my head. It’s an upbeat melody that lifts spirits and invites sing-a-longs.

Inner Journey:

THE KEY TO CREATIVITY

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge islimited. Imagination encircles the world.”
— Albert Einstein

Do you know the key to creativity?

It rhymes with weed. It produces the oak tree. We often eat it or grind it up for flour. It can mean cause or origination. You guessed it. It is SEED.

Our minds love to associate one thing to another. But as we get stuck in very fixed patterns of thinking, we think of fewer and fewer connections. We are ruled by habits, associations and automatic responses. So we must stimulate our thinking with lots of different seeds to chart new paths in our brains.

“Just as our eyes need light in order to see, our minds need ideas in order to conceive.”
— Napoleon Hill

“Anyone can look for fashion in a boutique or history in amuseum. The creative explorer looks for history in a hardwarestore and fashion in an airport.”
— Robert Wieder

Commitment
“If you don’t make a total commitment to whatever you’re doing, then you start looking to bail out the first time the boat starts leaking. It’s tough enough getting that boat to shore with everybody rowing, let alone when a guy stand up and starts putting his life jacket on.”

-Lou Holtz
Lou Holtz is the well-known football coach, and he’s talking about teamwork, and the importance of commitment to the team. The analogy he uses is great because it’s so visual – and you can see how one person’s lack of commitment affects those around him.

I was thinking about the commitment our ancestors made when coming to this country. Can you imagine the courage it took to leave home for somewhere, something unknown – the possibility of something better? Once they set out in that “boat” there was no turning back. If we could only have that courage, that commitment, in our own lives to just “go for it!” Yes, there are risks – that comes with the territory, but like another saying goes: “no risks, no rewards!”

Daily Good: Failure Is Afraid of You

When confronted with the possibility of failure, we become afraid. We are so afraid of failure that we combat it by metaphorically beating it, sweeping it away, or hiding it in a deep hole. What might happen if we lit a candle and looked at our fear in the light of wisdom, compassion and even joy? Discover how fear of failure can be transformed in this short essay from the blog DailyBeloved.

Elephant Journal: Halloween: This Time of Year gives us the Chance to learn Life’s Greatest Lesson. {Book Excerpt}

This time of Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, longer nights, colder weather, and winter’s looming arrival is a good time to contemplate death.
Death has much to teach us.

One of the most significant tests we ever face is death. And, because of his gravity, his apparent finality, he jolts our soul.
For we often don’t get things done till the deadline. We might delay fully living if we did not hear the tick, tick, tick of time.

EarthSky News: Tonight, find the Andromeda galaxy 

Tonight, now that the moon is in a waning gibbous phase and gone from the sky in early evening, find the Andromeda galaxy, the great spiral galaxy next door to our Milky Way. It’s the most distant thing you can see with your eye alone. It’s best seen in the evening at this time of year, assuming you’re in the Northern Hemisphere.

Patheos-Pagan: Samhain is What You Make of It

There always seems to be so much more Witchcraft and Paganism than usual at Samhain. Some of that is because there’s often just more to do. For many of us there are just more rituals to partake in, and there’s something about Autumn and Halloween that just feels like Witchcraft. You might blame the thinning of the veil for this, or maybe it’s the chillier weather, or shorter days.

Inner Journey: 

GO FOR PASSION!

“There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.”
— Frederico Fellini
How do you ration your passion?

In what situations have you experienced your life to the fullest? Do you live your passion as fully as you can? How do you limit your experience of passion?

Passion emerges when your essence expresses itself. How do you stop yourself from fully expressing who you are?

“Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark.”
— Henri Frederic Amiel

“We could hardly wait to get up in the morning.”
— Wilbur Wright

Self-Knowledge

“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.”

-Henry David Thoreau

As a spiritual community, we talk a lot about “who we really are” and becoming “more of our Self.” But wanting it and actually achieving it are two different things. The first step is understanding what it is we’re really after. And it’s not fish! Self-knowledge is something intangible, and invaluable.

-Lissa Coffey

Becoming The Change: Cat’s Angel Message for September 13, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

Becoming The Change: Cat’s Angel Message for September 13, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


We must become the change we wish to see in the world. – Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi


913:  Today’s number corresponds to the Sacred Feminine, the goddess and intuition. Just like the Angels and the Ascended Masters the Sacred Feminine/ Goddess can also helps us with our life’s journey. Her energy is is warm and comforting and can be easily felt simply being outdoors. The Sacred Feminine/Goddess is assisting us today by sharing her loving energy. I know it doesn’t seem like it with all of the turmoil we are currently experiencing but to me her message is clear:

” I am saddened by the disregard and hate that humans have for each other and the world. I implore you to embrace each other as family always, and not just during times of hardship. I share my deep love for you in hopes that you will in turn share it with others and continue to do so.”

It’s through the Sacred Feminine/Goddess that we learn a more loving and nurturing way of doing things. It starts by loving ourselves and by embracing that love we are able to share it with others. This creates a healing and compassionate flow of energy which helps to create Unity and Community which  is necessary for personal growth and the growth of mankind. Be confident in your ability to make a difference and let your light shine!


The Sacred Feminine/Goddess is the female aspect of Spirit and like Spirit she is called by many names. Today we can work with Mother Mary who helps to fill our hearts with peace and love She is warm and compassionate and helps everyone regardless of path or religion. The Chinese goddess Kuan Yin, Lady of Mercy, will also help all who ask. She teaches us how to embrace the gifts of giving and sharing as well as loving compassion for self and others. We can also call upon the Hindu Universal Goddess Devi. Devi helps those who want to help others and teaches us how to build better relationships with those around us.


Our Sacred Stones for the day are Rose Quartz to bring healing peace, and Blue Lace Agate which supports feelings of peace and nurturing energy. The energy of these stones is both calm and gentle which is perfect for sending out healing vibes!


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Clearing the Garden: Cat’s Angel Message for May 13, 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 weeds keep multiplying in our garden, which is our mind ruled by fear. Rip them out and call them by name. – Sylvia Browne


513: Today the Sacred Feminine Spirit  is asking each of us (regardless of gender) to embrace our sacred feminine energy.  This energy  helps us to embrace the compassion love that we store inside and to allows it to flow outward. This also helps us on an emotional level by encouraging us to nurture and tend to the new growth that we have uncovered during our “weed pulling” activities. With things changing for the better it more important than ever to spread positive energy and plant new thought seeds where you can. Take the initiative and help create the things you want. Use your natural talents and creativity to transform your life for the better.


Work with the feminine archetypes and goddesses today. Abundantia helps us to attract good fortune and abundance. Aine helps us learn how to increase our faith and find enjoyment in life.  Brigid offers protection and ignites our creative fire. Kali promotes courage, focus and helps us to meet the goals we have set. Maat provides clarification of issues that have caused us confusion and Saint Therese helps to soothe troubled emotions while leading us down the path of personal peace.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rose Quartz,  and it’s always a great crystal to have on hand. This gentle stone soothes emotions and helps us find unconditional love for ourselves and for others. It strengthens our ability to provide empathy and helps us to find loving relationships. Rose Quartz pushes away negative energy and helps us to release buried emotions and emotional conditioning that no longer serves us. What a great day for an emotional bubble bath!


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Happy Tuesday,

One of the most beautiful and comforting things we can do someone is a hug.A simple heartfelt hug is often more healing to an unhappy heart than the spoken word. This amazing “free therapy”  doesn’t require an appointment or insurance. All it requires is a little time and compassion.

Being of Service: Cat’s Angel Message for March 19, 2018 

 March Theme:  This month guidance is coming from the Ascended Masters. Find what defines you and use it to inspire others. Free your creative side and share your ideas and gifts.


 

 I don’t know any other way to lead but by example. – Don Shula

 319:  Today the Ascended Masters are asking us to be of service to others. This can be as simple as lending a helping hand to a friend, family member, neighbor or even stranger. You can pay someone a compliment, give a hug or even a smile.  Sometimes the best  service we can provide is by simply setting a good example.  Everyday we inspire others even though we may not be aware of doing so. Through patience , compassion and positive focus we can help ourselves and others lead healthier and more peaceful lives.  Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most and make the biggest impact!

Archangel Michael teaches us that through compassion and commitment to our beliefs we can lead effectively through example. If you work with children Archangel Metatron can show you the best way to be a positive influence. The Ascended Master Mother Mary can also help when working with children by providing a more maternal energy to work with.

Our Sacred Stones for today are Apatite and Fuchsite.  Inspirational Apatite helps us to be of service. It helps us to be more open and at ease in social situations as it promotes a humanitarian attitude. Fuchsite helps us to understand our personal interactions with others particularly basic life concerns. It teaches self worth  and how to do what is necessary to get others moving in the right direction without doing everything for them.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
