Change is that crazy friend who loves adventure so get on board and go for a ride! ~Cat

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.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

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. He 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. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement.

The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen.

The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”,

Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Agate. This humble stone 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 make the most of our life experiences which assist the process of change.

Chrysanthemum Stone can help to remove obstacles from our path. Since obstacles tend to pop up during periods of change, this stone promotes the harmony and the balance we need to help our forward progress

Galena helps us to stay grounded and centered. It helps to open the mind as it dissolves self-limiting thoughts from our past that can get in our way during the manifestation process.

Take The First Step: Cat’s Angel Message for April 27, 2020

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


Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase. – Martin Luther King, Jr.


427: These daily readings focus quite often on faith. Remember that faith isn’t inherent to just one religion or path. It encompasses them all and that it includes spirituality. While we can have faith in many things one of the most important is having faith in ourselves. The universe and its helpers are here to assist us but we must also be willing to do our part. This is where faith in yourself comes in. The more confidence and faith you have in yourself the better equipped you are to create the life you want. Faith also helps us to grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Today the angels are asking us to armor ourselves in faith and courage. If you need their support or assistance just ask. Then open yourself to receiving the guidance that is shared and take action accordingly.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

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. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain a clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement.

The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara teaches us that we have an unlimited supply of personal power and helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns. This gives us the skills we need to strengthen our personal boundaries so that we can be and stay strong in situations where we need to be.

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!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Moss Agate. This gentle stone promotes new beginnings and can help release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways. Often referred to as the gardener’s stone Moss Agate helps us connect to nature, the earth, and our own inner garden as well. Carry it with you or wear it during times of new growth.

Tiger’s Eye (Gold) helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. 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

Golden (Imperial) Topaz helps to strengthen our confidence, faith and optimistic outlook as it reminds us of our own divine origins. It can also be used to re-energize the body and spirit which assists us in overcoming our self-imposed limitations.

The Challenge of Change: Cat’s Angel Message for April 25, 2020

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


One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. – Carl Jung


425:  As we head towards the end of the month we are being asked to review our April theme: “We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.” Changes require courage and our spiritual helpers are gently reminding us that we are never alone and that they are here to help with any changes that you are going through. You have grown enough to do what is necessary to make your life better, so use your Sacred Tools (faith, intuition) to make the changes that you need to continue your growth. Their message today is “Never be afraid of change. Embrace it and it will embrace you. Don’t fight these changes that are taking place as they are what you need to continue your growth cycle.”


Today’s Spiritual 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 (Laughing Buddha) helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter, this gives us a clear perspective and keeps our energy flowing. He tells us that laughter is sacred and when the heart is alive with joy we are connected to the Infinite and filled with Nirvana-essence. Center your mind with the intent of enjoying yourself and you will find yourself centered in the moment. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process!

The Greek goddess Hecate teaches us about the importance of change. She helps us to release the past and the old things that keep us from moving on and how to accept change and transition. She tells us: ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must release the past and the old things that keep us from moving on and how to accept change and transition.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.
( Calcite can also be used to promote the balance of your chakras. When our chakras are in balance it’s easier to live the attitude of gratitude.)

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.

Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change as it helps to sharpen the mind and enhance our self confidence. Peridot can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts that are hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.

Write your Sad times in Sand, Write your Good times in Stone. – George Bernard Shaw


421: Life’s path offers us many things and takes us in many directions. Some of them bring us happiness and joy while others cause us pain and self-doubt. Today, our angels are encouraging us to step up and be our own cheerleaders. While it’s nice to have someone else pat us on the back and say “Good Job!” our self-confidence benefits more from the divine voice inside. That voice offers us nudges of encouragement as well as guidance. Listen to that voice and allow yourself to receive the mental hugs it has to offer. Remember to use your I AM and I CAN self speak to boost your courage and confidence. Remember, you are a creator and you are worthy of accomplishing great things!

If we set the stage for courage, our awareness of what happens to us becomes our greatest ally. “The more you interrupt the old fear-based habits and replace fear-based responses with responses to boost courage, the more you create a ‘courage habit.’ By living your life with courage, you’ll be more likely to make the changes that will lead to greater fulfillment — whether that’s embarking on a new relationship or job, or helping to save the world.” In this article from Greater Good, five tips for changes in your life that will make you aware of how you experience fear, and { read more }

Inner Journey:

A NEW LOOK AT PROBLEMS

“The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.”
— Theodore Rubin

Our lives really begin to change when we learn to shift our perspective on ‘problems.’

From a spiritual perspective, problems offer our best path to growth. Like it or not, pain gets our attention. Discomfort also challenges the ego’s perception that it is in complete control of life. This opens the door for soul’s guidance.

If we want to be rid of the problem, we need to shift from denial and resistance to accept that this situation is present. We need to be willing to truly feel our experience to allow the energy of emotions to move through.

Finally, we need to explore what belief is giving rise to our distress. When we realize the belief is faulty, our shift in perspective resolves the problem. The solution always lies within us.

“No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
— Source Unknown

A Note from the Universe

I don’t quite know if it’s the way your mind works, or your emotional sensitivity. I don’t know if it’s the way you laugh, or the way you cry. Could be your tenacity and courage. Or maybe it’s your wit and spontaneity. Truth is there’s never been anyone like you, so it’s hard to tell. But whatever it is, to me, from here, right now, you sure improve the view.

You are so-o-o-o beautiful.

Gratefully,

The Universe

“The future… is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.”

-C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)
C.S. Lewis had a very practical way of looking at the future. In this description, the future could be seen as the great equalizer. The truth is that the future belongs to each of us, and it is up to us how we approach it. The possibilities are endless!

Your instincts may be heightened and a bit off today, and this could lead you to make some wrong decisions or assumptions. Then, you run the risk of pouncing on these assumptions and acting out of a bad impulse. Keep your emotions under control and back away from impulsive actions of any kind. Today they are traps that lead to embarrassment at best, and harm at worst.

Inner Journey: 

BIG MIND, LITTLE MIND

“It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated.”
— Sri Ramakrishna
Zen distinguishes big mind from small mind. Big mind identifies with its process, is impersonal and participates universally. Big mind is unlimited possibilities, deeper understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, insight, connectedness, attention.
Small mind is self centred and focuses only on itself. It is compulsive, limited, reactive and mechanical. Small mind feeds on itself — fear reacts to fear, judgment reacts to judgment, anger sparks more anger.
Always seek higher perspectives and you will in time find freedom.
“If a pickpocket meets a Holy Man, he will see only his pockets.”
— Hari Dass
“Minds are like parachutes; they work best when open.”
— Lord Thomas Dewar

Courage

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

-Anais Nin (1903-1977)

The amount of courage that we have depends on the way that we see ourselves. Remember the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz? He went to see the Wizard because he did not like being cowardly – he wanted the Wizard to give him courage. And yet, just by setting out on the journey, taking that step forward into the unfamiliar, took a great deal of courage! And all along the way, the lion was put into situations where he could demonstrate his courage – and he did, without even realizing it! It takes until the end of the story for the lion to see that his courage was with him all the time. And with that discovery, his life expanded.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Good: Serious Fun

“Leon was a renegade even as a little kid, and bless him, lived a successful life doing it his own way. He came of draft age exactly as America was entering the war in Vietnam, told us he had no intention of getting drafted and then made good on his promise by baking bread for members of the Draft Board the morning he had to appear. There, he ceremoniously cut his loaf into generous slices and handed each member of the Board a well-buttered slice, telling them that his reasons for wanting Conscientious Objector status was baked into his bread! “I could try and say it in words,” he told them, “but tasting my bread will say it much better than I could.” Carolyn North shares more in this moving tribute to her brother. { read more }

Patheos-Pagan: The Spiritual Benefits Of Being A Hermit

Every winter, I turn into a modern-day hermit. It’s a practice I’ve come to accept about myself, even though it goes against the social norms and peer pressure to always be doing something. I’ve learned to make the most of these times, and I feel there are so many spiritual benefits to being a hermit.

Inner Journey:

MAKING LIFE OUR OWN

“Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.”
— Stephen Vincent Benet

What’s needed for a new relationship with time and life?

Intention — Get really clear about what you want.

Desire — How much do you want something new for yourself? Know your motivation. Desire brings the energy for change.

Belief and/or willingness to trust you can have what you want. If belief is lacking, can you believe in the possibility that you can find a new way of living?

Perseverance, discipline — It takes time and effort to change attitudes and habits. We can’t expect a new life overnight.

Acceptance, both of what’s happening now and of who we are. Until we honestly and openly accept our present situation, we cannot change it.

A willingness to try something new.

“It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our hours, our minutes. … It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless you know there is a clock ticking. So many of us changed our lives when we heard a biological clock and decided to have kids. But that sound is a murmur compared to the tolling of mortality.”
— Anna Quindlen

A Note from the Universe 

You wouldn’t believe the stuff people think they want.

Just the other day someone was asking for a llama.

Nothing wrong with llamas, I have a few myself, but the llama he wants is supposed to help him with his business; schlepping stuff over mountains, they’re good for that.

Now, why do you suppose he didn’t just ask for a pickup truck?

Trust me, he could’ve asked for a pickup truck and he’d have been a lot happier.

So… I’m off to the bazaar. In the meantime, should you need anything, please be sure to ask for what you really want.

Tallyho,

The Universe

Today’s Recipe: Roasted Radishes Will Become Your New Favorite Vegetable With This Flavorful Recipe

Russians love radishes, from garden-variety red to pungent black, enjoying them not only fresh but also salted, marinated, or turned into savory preserves. I like simply to roast them. If you’ve never had cooked radishes before, you’ll be delighted. Though they retain some crunch, their flavor mellows, and the muted red of their skin is alluring.

Courage

“Fearlessness is the first requisite of spirituality.”

-Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

The Course in Miracles says that basically everything can be divided up into two choices, fear or love. And ultimately, it is all just love because fear is really just the absence of love. So, if fearlessness is courage, then courage is love. Courage is strength. It’s the ability to call upon the strength and love that it inherent within each one of us, to bring it forth, to let it shine.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Relax, take a deep breath, and don’t let any feelings of anxiety derail your plans for the day. A certain level of nervousness may be in the air today but it doesn’t have to be contagious and you don’t have to catch it. If a touch of anxiety serves to give you a greater sense of caution, that can be a good thing.

Natural Living ideas: How To Grow Luffa & Turn Them Into Sponges

Luffa (sometimes spelt loofah or loofa), otherwise known as a ridge gourd, is a popular fruit to grow in the garden, but often not for food, but for making sponges.

Much of the marketing of luffas, shows the sponge in a seaside setting, surrounded by pretty shells and the like, leading many to believe they’re some kind of “Sponge Bob,” or the remains of an ocean creature, but they’re actually the fibrous flesh of the mature luffa gourd.

Daily Good: Meaning and the Song of the Soul

“Meaning is what calls from the depths of the soul.
It is the song that sings us into life. Whether we have a meaningful life depends upon whether we can hear this song, this primal music of the sacred. The sacred is not something primarily religious or even spiritual. It is not a quality we need to learn or to develop. It belongs to the primary nature of all that is. When our ancestors knew that everything they could see was sacred, this was not something taught but instinctively known. It was as natural as sunlight, as necessary as breathing. It is a fundamental recognition of the wonder, beauty and divine nature of the world. And from this sense of the sacred, real meaning is born, the meaning that makes our hearts sing with the deepest purpose of being alive.” Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee shares more in this beautiful passage. { read more }

EarthSky News:  Moon and Gemini February 6 and 7

At present, the waxing gibbous moon is bright enough to erase many stars from the blackboard of night. But you’ll likely still see the two bright Gemini “twins” – the stars Castor and Pollux – in the moon’s glare. Another bright star is nearby; it’s Procyon, brightest star in the constellation Canis Minor the Lesser Dog, also known as the Little Dog Star.

Patheos-Pagan: Impossible Shapes: Devotion

This is a post that originally appeared on the 3 Pagans and a Cat website on June 20th, 2018. It was an attempt to put devotion, faith, and the experience of the divine into language. It was an attempt at expressing the numinous. I am no more able to describe the experience it attempts to convey now than I was then. Some things just are. You’ll know them when you feel them.

Inner Journey:

LIVE LIFE FULLY

“Time is life. It is irreversible and irreplaceable. To waste your time is to waste your life, but to master your time is to master your life and make the most of it.”
— Alan Lakein

Refuse to feel USED by life! Make full use of it instead.

To do this, we initially need to take control of the time of our lives. Time management is life management, from the inside out. It’s an INSIDE job. You already have everything you need. You have the power to create a life of meaning, fulfillment and joy.

Your challenge is to find what works for you! Review the literature but make your own decisions. To do this, you’ll need to:

Get to know yourself — your desires and passions, rhythms, styles, challenges, needs and habits.

Be aware that you always have choice. Claim your independence and power to choose what is right for your life, moment by moment.

“Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.”
— M. Scott Peck

Courage

“Courage: to bear unflinchingly what heaven sends.”

-Euripides (485?-406 B.C.)

Courage is such a big word when we think about all that it means and all that it represents. There’s the courage it takes to fight for what we believe in. There’s the courage that we find when we need the strength to face adversity. We think of courage as being associated with heroes – and yet we all have the capacity to be courageous. We can all be heroes.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Tower

The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause.
