Spiritual Unite: The Dragon Keeper – A Symbolic Story About The Kundalini Rising Inside All Of Us 

A symbolic fictional story about the kundalini Rising inside all of us.
Once upon a time, in a far away land, a dragon was formed. This dragon was a creative aspect of you because, energetically, you are a serpent of life. You are the womb of all creation. You were born from the egg. You are destined to be the fire breather, as the raging beast that you are.

Flowers

“Beautiful, tender flowers grow upon the lava lips of Mono craters, pines ascend their ashy slopes, and it is just where the glaciers have crushed heaviest that the greatest quantity of beautiful life appears.”

-John Muir (1838-1914)

Life has a way of showing up. Grass makes its way through cracks in a sidewalk. Daffodils poke through previously frozen ground to find the sun. We might think of flowers as delicate and fragile, but they are strong, and full of life!

-Lissa Coffey

Believe It: Cat’s Angel Message for January 16, 2020

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


Those who believe they can do something and those who believe they can’t are both right. – Henry Ford


116: Our thoughts and actions shape and create our reality and the Universe is reminding us that we have the power within us to manifest anything and everything that we need.  Faith- Perspective- Focus are today’s keywords. Have faith in what you want to create (dreams and goals). Use your powers of perception and look for that “one good thing” and use it to create that first step. Stay focused on what you want and on your desired outcome and give them nudges and tweaks to keep things moving in the right direction and by keeping your expectations high you generate a mindset that embodies gratitude as it creates a positive flow of blessings.  The biggest key to the creation process lies in finding and maintaining a balance between our material and spiritual sides. Learning to appreciate and be grateful for what we have allows us to clearly see new blessings when they arrive. You are worthy of receiving the blessings the universe has to offer, add your magick to that and watch paths and doors open up!


The Archangel Raguel helps us to find our power and brings clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He also aids in the letting go process which is essential to moving forward. Raguel reminds us that sometimes people can get “freaky” when they see you moving off in a new direction and helps to smooth the way by resolving conflicts and disharmony with those around us as we work with our creative magic.

The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

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.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

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.

Okenite can be used to help clear away obstacles and teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when allowing ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start and helps replace bad habits with good ones.

Turquoise. This stone helps us with creative problem solving and promotes both balance and intuition. It is aligned with the Throat Chakra and teaches us to speak up for ourselves and speak our truth. Which can be a valuable asset when working with gratitude and our ability to create for ourselves.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Pay Attention: Cat’s Angel Message for January 12, 2020

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


Your eyes must not determine what you see. pay attention. – Mary Anne Radmacher


112: Winter is a time of introspection and by looking within we gain valuable knowledge and insights into who we are, who we want to be and where we want to go.  This is the first step to initiating personal growth as it helps to clear the pathways and makes it possible for letting go of old habits and beliefs.  Sometimes we are our own worst enemy when it comes to these old habits. While they may “feel” comfortable the truth is that we hold onto these things because we are afraid of change or have a fear of failure. The Universe is reminding us that we can’t grow if we refuse to accept the changes that are offered and needed. As you explore your own inner workings remember to pay attention to any recurring thoughts and ideas. The key lies in the way we perceive the information provided. This information paves our way into the future we desire, and planting positive thought seeds along our path will be beneficial in the coming months.


Archangel Uriel helps us to let go of the past and invite essential new growth into our lives. He helps us to find harmony in the things going on around us and reminds us that letting go is essential for change and transformation to take place.

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, creative flow and our power as a creator. Things flow easier when we are not struggling against the “what if’s and maybes.

The Welsh Goddess Cerridwen uses her cauldron “Amen” to help provide us with knowledge, wisdom, personal rebirth and inspiration. remember that change brings us the transformation that we need. She reminds us “The opportunity for your own transformation lies before you. It provides you the chance to spread your wings and grow. Look into my sacred cauldron and see the vision of your path unfolding before you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Mookite, a form of Jasper that comes in many creamy color combinations, promotes decision making and versatility. These things are important when we are faced with new experiences and find ourselves faced with the need to take action. It encourages us to be flexible during times of change and helps us to embrace new experiences with an open sense of adventure.

The humble Agate 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.

Lepidolite helps us to focus on the important things. It filters out distractions and obsessive thinking as it soothes and heals stress, reminding us to just breathe.

Following The Blueprints: Cat’s Angel Message for November 3, 2019

November’s Theme:  Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. – Napoleon Hill


113:  Today the Universe is giving us a little boost in the upbeat energy department. After yesterday’s peek into the future the Universe is reminding us that we have the power to make those visions a reality. You have the ability to do whatever makes your spirit sing and makes you feel whole. Embrace new challenges and opportunities without worrying about success, remember that enjoyment is part of the adventure). Your divine helpers are here to assist you and help things fall into place. It doesn’t matter whether others understand you or not so do your best to stay above the energies of those who want to rain on your parade. Walking away is in your overall best interest and will help nurture the thought seeds of yesterday!


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations.

The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be a healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way, we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward.

The Greek Goddess Persephone teaches us how to liberate ourselves from the things that are holding us back so that we can forge ahead on a new path. This lady has both an iron will and compassion. She tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark places we often find treasures we had forgotten. These treasures can form the foundations that you need.”


Our Sacred Stones for today includes:

Blue Quartz (Clear Quartz with blue inclusions). This stone cleanses the energy of our outer environment as it supports peaceful interactions with those around us. Blue Quartz also promotes clarity and eases any fear we may experience as we continue to explore.

Moss Agate promotes new beginnings and helps to release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It also helps us to connect to nature and the earth which is essential for the ground-clear-center process that we are working on today.

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.

Focused Effort: Cat’s Angel Message for September 22, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


Ask today as you consider the many choices in your view – what is the highest and best use of your talents, skills and abilities? When you answer that, seize the opportunity to sharpen those qualities even more sharply by applying your focused effort. – Mary Anne Radmacher


922: Creating the life we want is within our grasp today as a window of power open before us. The angels are reminding you that you have the strength and the skills necessary to fulfill your purpose. Here you have a choice, will you use the skills that you have or hide them away. Let your inner guidance take the lead but don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Believing in yourself raises your energy vibration and acts as a magnet to blessings and new opportunities. Follow your inner vision and let your light shine!


    • Archangel Raguel promotes feelings of empowerment and clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts.

  • 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 of 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.

 

 

  • Greek goddess Persephone tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark or weedy places you often find treasures that you had forgotten. These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”

Something Marvelous: Cat’s Angel Message for September 5, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. – Anais Nin


95:  This month is all about discovering and working with our Life Purpose. Even if we don’t know what our “purpose “is the clues that provide those answers are there. Many of the clues we need can be found in the changes that either just show up or that we initiate for ourselves. These changes happen through the clearing process of letting go of outdated thoughts, feelings, people and things. Letting go tells the Universe that we are ready to move forward and continue our growth cycle. Remember that without change we don’t grow and it is through growth that our Life Purpose comes into focus. Today the angels are telling us that the time has come to embrace the changes that we have been working on or putting off. It is it time to step up and start creating the life you want and acknowledging what really fills your spirit to the fullest!


Archangel Jeremiel is reminding us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you to see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be a healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way, we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And, the Yoruban Goddess Oya helps us navigate the winds of change. ” My child change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem solving process. It enables us to release things that are no longer relevant to our current path and dispels any guilt we may have when we leave things behind. It helps us to make the necessary changes and brings harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.

Black Obsidian not only protects it also helps to bring negative energy to the surface where it can be dispelled and provides support during times of change. It takes the “things” that we’ve hidden and composts them into positive soil to support out new growth.

Sunstone brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. It brings out our natural optimism, self confidence and promotes our natural flow of abundance as it soothes our fear of change and the accompanying stress that change can bring.

Finding A Way: Cat’s Angel Message for August 24, 2019

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month.  You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


We will either find a way or make one. – Hannibal


824:  Yesterday we talked about using our natural talents to help us create the life we want. However, to make things happen we must also have faith in ourselves and in the Universe. Our angels are reminding us that faith relies upon courage and when it wavers so can our faith. Since our thoughts and actions create our reality it’s fair to say that our courage and conviction stem from them as well. We can help even more by allowing ourselves to be guided through personal truth and values. Rely on your inner guidance and your ability to think outside the box. Gather your gifts around you like an armored cloak and move through your day with confidence and create the life you deserve!


Call on Archangel Raguel today to give you a boost of energy and to help bring 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, Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence. And the Hindu Goddess, White Tara asks us to “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Hematite has a strong connection to the earth element and helps us stay grounded and promotes feelings of safety and courage. Hematite also brings mental clarity through focus and concentration which is essential to the letting go process which accompanies change.
  • Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” 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.
