Today’s Message: I’m Possible -Everything Is Possible

812: Today we continue on the theme of creative problem solving. We are all capable of creating new things and thinking outside the box. However, there are times when activating and using our problem solving skills seems impossible. Remember that impossible really says ” I’m- Possible” Don’t be afraid to let yourself go, or of making mistakes, or of what others may think. Be courageous and give yourself permission to use the abilities that you have. This requires trust and faith and by allowing our creative mind to blossom it invites new ideas to take root and multiply. While it’s true that these ideas may generate artistic endeavors it can also generate a completely different approach to solving issues that we are working on. This in turn gives us more options and flexibility so that we have more to work with. The angels are reminding us to stay positive, focused and open to trying out new ideas!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raguel sets us on the path to personal empowerment. He helps us to find our strength and promotes clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He empowers the underdog and also acts as a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves and can help you to reach your full potential.

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. Things flow easier when we are not struggling against the “what if’s and maybes.

The Hawaiian fire goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. 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!”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making.

Carnelian is used for motivation and increased creativity. It teaches us to trust in ourselves and helps us find creative solutions to current issues as it boosts self esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices which enhance our ability to draw new forms of prosperity and abundance.

Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential.

Daily Good: Nature and the Serious Work of Joy

To use the world well, to be able to stop wasting it and our time in it, we need to relearn our being in it.

  • Ursula Le Guin –

Nature and the Serious Work of Joy

“‘Our origins are of the earth. And so there is in us a deeply seated response to the natural universe, which is part of our humanity,” Rachel Carson wrote in reflecting on our spiritual bond with nature shortly before she awakened the modern environmental conscience. The rewards and redemptions of that elemental yet endangered response is what British naturalist and environmental writer Michael McCarthy, a modern-day Carson, explores in The Moth Snowstorm: Nature and Joy (public library) — part memoir and part manifesto, a work of philosophy rooted in environmental science and buoyed by a soaring poetic imagination.” Maria Popova shares more about McCarthy’s book and its timely messages here. { read more }

Be The Change

Walk into nature in any of its forms today, and as you look and listen and receive the impression, also notice within yourself its effect on you. Is there some simple way you can return to nature its great gift to us, by planting or weeding or caring for an animal?

Inner Journey: WE EXPERIENCE WHAT WE BELIEVE

“You are free to believe what you choose and what you do attests to what you believe.”
— A Course of Miracles

You most likely believe that your experiences have taught you what is real and what is true – at least for you. However, what you may not know is that your beliefs – conscious and unconscious – have determined what you would experience.

Experiences do not determine what you believe. What you first of all believe is what you will experience. It follows, then, that if you wish to experience life in new ways, you need to examine your belief systems.

Change your consciousness and you’ll change your life.

“Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can.”

“Philosophy is not a theory but an activity.”

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

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.

____________________________

Change happens whether we want it to or not. By learning to go with the flow we gain more benefit than when we fight against the tide. ~Cat

_____________________________

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: Jan. 29, 2021 “Having The Courage”

Happy Friday,

We don’t always have the right words when speaking to others or do the right things at the right time. This is when an apology is needed and the choice is ours whether to make one or not. Always find the courage to make an apology. Always be humble enough to admit saying or doing something that hurt someone else. A heartfelt apology is both an artform and a gift.

New Directions: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31, 2020

New Directions: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31, 2020

 December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.

____________________________

Choose your priorities carefully for this new cycle.If the old no longer suits you choose a new direction. ~ Cat

_____________________________

1231: As the old year comes to a close we are receiving an important message from our Spirit Helpers: “You are amazing beings and you have grown in so many ways over the past year. This old cycle has been difficult and you have overcome many obstacles with grace and courage. As you enter into this new year shift your thoughts to a higher level of love and peace. This will be essential to your continued growth and your power as a creator. . Stay focused and confident and above all continue to have faith in yourself. By living your truth and claiming your authentic self you are fully capable of creating the life you desire for both you and your loved ones. Creation begins with you and spreads to those around you and continues outward like ripples in a pond. Enter the new year with a new outlook on life. We are here and ready to help you all you need do is ask.”

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears as he guides us through issues of self doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress and confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by showing us how to work through obstacles that pop up as he teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence.

The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps keep our energy balanced and flowing. This is essential for using our gifts and understanding the information we receive. He can also help to diffuse unpleasant situations that can arise as we go through change and transformation. Since he helps us heal through color, pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant.

The Hindu Goddess Kali is a dark mother and goddess of death. Each time we let go of something that no longer serves us we are in truth embracing a “little death” and fear often accompanies the letting go process. One of Kali’s greatest lessons is through our worst fears lies the freedom we gain in conquering them. She says: “Dreams must be created with focus and intent. I will help you to embrace the courage and motivation that you need to see things through to a successful conclusion.”

Today’s Sacred Stones 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.

Dioptase helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action.

Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it helps dispel fixed ideas and thoughts and brings the rational thinking forward so that new information is easily accepted. It is a protective stone that draws away negative energy and stress. It cleans and re-energizes the aura and promotes overall harmony and order.

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.

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.

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.

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

Today, our angels are encouraging us to step up and be our own cheerleaders.

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!

Daily Good: How to Lead a More Courageous Life

When confronted with fear, the brain will seek relief in the form of old coping habits if left to its own devices. However, there are things we can do to help it change course. 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 }

EarthSky News: Watch for Lyrid meteors this week

It’s Lyrid meteor time again! The Lyrids aren’t the richest shower of the year. In a dark sky, you might see about 10 to 15 meteors per hour at the shower’s peak. But the Lyrids are always welcome, a break from the “meteor drought” that always comes in the early part of every year. In 2020, the skinny and almost-new moon won’t hinder the view. Bring on the Lyrids!

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

Future
“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!

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Devil

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.
