Today’s Message: Stand Your Ground

77: We know from past readings that our path is unique. We also know that we are the only ones who know the scope of our dreams and what we need to be fulfilled. Today, the angels are giving us a little advice. “Stand your ground where your path is concerned.” There will always be people, including loved ones, who will try to push you in a different direction. This can happen for various reasons like fear, greed, or simply because they think they know what’s best for you. If you know with every fiber of your being that your path doesn’t go that direction bless the situation with love and keep moving forward. The key is to honor their concern for you, by sifting through the information, consider what has merit and file away or discard the rest.

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 Serapis Bey brings us the necessary spiritual insight we need when dealing with negative people, feelings or situations. By surrounding yourself with loving energy you can find the peace you need to deal with off color moments.

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says: ” Personal boundaries are important to your well being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self assurance to do what is in your best interest.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Black Banded Agate which helps us start new things, embrace new beginnings and projects. It promotes the creativity needed to make things happen. The patterns in this stone invite inspiration and creative flow!

Azurite increases our ability to receive spiritual guidance and helps us to see through illusions and clears the mind so that we can see our path clearly. It helps to develop our intuitive skills as it expands the mind to promote clear thinking, understanding and new perspectives.

Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships which are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Spiritual Unite: Cat Animal Totem – What Does It Mean?

If you look at the cat animal totem as a guide, you can learn a lot about yourself by studying the symbolism of cats and their totemic powers. We couldn’t possibly cover every piece of feline symbolism in this article or even a thousand articles! People have spent their whole lives interpreting their animal totems without the well ever …

MBG: How To Say No & Still Maintain Your Relationships

As a society, we’ve finally started to embrace not going out on Saturday nights and forgoing dinner dates for Netflix and chill. Instead of feeling compelled to agree to every social gathering offered to us, people are feeling more empowered than ever to set their boundaries, stay in, and focus on themselves and what their minds, bodies, and souls really need. Saying no can be hard—but we know it’s an absolutely vital part of self-care

Elephant Journal: How I Stopped trying to Change my Body.

I recently found out that 91 percent of women are dissatisfied with their bodies.
91 percent.
That means that just about every woman you know wishes her body was different.

While body positivity is slowly taking hold, diet culture is still going strong.
For most of us, going from body negative to body positive doesn’t happen in one fell swoop. So how do we bridge the gap?

MNN: Why protecting this small slice of greenspace in Tennessee is a big deal

Sequatchie Cave State Natural Area, Tennessee — A royal snail is about the size of a match head. You could be standing in a few inches of water with lots of royal snails at your feet, look down, and not even see them.

“If it looks like a caterpillar turd but it starts moving, that’s a royal snail,” cracks David Withers, a zoologist with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

EarthSky News: Moon lights up Gemini in early October

These next few days – October 2 and 3, 2018 – get up before daybreak to see the moon shining in front of the constellation Gemini the Twins. It’ll be fairly easy to see Gemini’s two brightest stars, Castor and Pollux, near the moon, but it’ll be quite a challenge to make out Cancer – the faintest constellation of the zodiac – to the east of Gemini. The moon will meet up with the constellation Cancer the Crab on October 4.

Patheos-Pagan: How to be ‘witchy’ enough

During this week, I had a moment when I was drenched in gratitude for no other reason that being a witch. It was one of those rare instances when consciousness altered, and my heart was brimming with thankfulness for the path I’ve chosen to take in this life. It didn’t happen in ritual or at a sacred site but in the kitchen. I think I was slicing green beans at the time.

Inner Journey: 

THE POWER OF ACCEPTANCE

“It is permissible to take life’s blessings with both hands provided thou dost know thyself prepared in the opposite event to take them just as gladly. This applies to food and friends and kindred, to anything God gives and takes away… As long as God is satisfied do thou rest content. If he is pleased to want something else of thee, still rest content.”
— Meister Eckhart

Our life begins to change in magical ways when we open to the experience of life AS IT IS. With acceptance, we stop fighting what is happening. And this creates space, an opening for new relationships to unfold.

Explore unconditionally saying yes to the facts of life. Accept your past and where you are now. Unconditional acceptance is unconditional love and this is healing.

“Sometimes what seems like surrender isn’t surrender at all. It’s about what’s going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain of not being true to it is far, far greater.”
— Nicholas Evans

Today’s Recipe: Guacamole Deviled Eggs

This is hands down my favourite twist on deviled eggs. Instead of adding mayonnaise and vinegar, I add avocados and lime juice. Every bite is just so creamy and dreamy. Not to mention I love the green colour! If you’d like to make yours spicy, add half a minced seeded jalapeno.

Nature

“Nature is an endless combination and repetition of a very few laws. She hums the old well-known air through innumerable variations.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Interesting that Emerson calls Nature “she.” Maybe because we think of Mother Nature. The idea, though, is that nature is something we can count on. As unpredictable as nature can be, we do know that the sun will rise, the seasons will change, that rivers will flow to the sea. There are these laws in effect that go beyond our powers of human manipulation. Nature is much bigger than we are, and yet, at the same time, it is an essential part of who we are. The same laws that govern nature affect us as well.

-Lissa Coffey
