Spirituality & Health: Fall in Love with Being Single
BY KATHRYN DRURY WAGNER

The feast of St. Valentine is February 14th, a day when all things heart-shaped and chocolate-covered are celebrated. Valentine’s Day can rub some people the wrong way, especially if they are single in a culture that is bent on making everyone part of a “happy couple.” Being single, however, has many perks. Let’s look at some of the reasons to embrace being single, if you happen to be.

MBG: Happy Lunar New Year! Here’s What The Year Of The Pig Symbolizes

Come on out of the doghouse—there’s a party in the pen! As we celebrate the Chinese (Lunar) New Year this February 5, 2019, the Year of the Earth Pig begins, kicking off the night before with the Lunar New Year’s Eve on February 4. After two intense years, this convivial cycle gives us a chance to “rest and digest.” The pregnant pause of 2019 might even help us make some sense of all the global mudslinging that’s been going around. Serenity now?

Daily Good: On Defining Spirit

“What then is the spiritual? I find it difficult to define directly. It’s much easier to say what it isn’t that what it is. For example — the spiritual is often confused with the moral, but it’s not the moral. Morality is concerned with issues of right and wrong. Although often attributed to the “godhead”, it actually has a social basis and reflects a social tradition or consensus. What is considered moral varies from culture to culture and from time to time within the same culture.

MNN: JOMO is my new favorite thing
If you’re at all introverted, it could be yours, too.

If you’re over FOMO (fear of missing out) — or you were never into it in the first place, you’ll be happy to hear that JOMO is now a thing. That’s the joy of missing out.

For all of us who enjoy not just a night in, but a week of evenings spent reading, watching movies, working on our own little projects, or hiking, biking and otherwise loving the great outdoors, we know all about JOMO

EarthSky News: See the Double Cluster in Perseus 

Tonight, find the gorgeous Double Cluster in the constellation Perseus. It’s a wonderful sight to see, assuming your sky is dark. To see it at this time of year, face North to Northwest as darkness falls. The Double Cluster consists of two open star clusters, known as “H” and “Chi” Persei (also called NGC 884 and 869).

Patheos-Pagan: Anglo-Saxon Based Holiday Calendar 2019

It’s a bit late this year, but here is my Anglo-Saxon calendar of holidays for 2019. The standard disclaimer applies: this calendar is based on my interpretation of the Venerable Bede’s description of the Anglo-Saxon calendar in his work De Temporum Ratione.

Inner Journey:

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

“The burden is equal to the horse’s strength.”
— The Talmud

What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?

If you make a list of the two and study them, you may discover they match.

Life needs us to bring our strengths to the world. To encourage us to do so, we have weaknesses that give rise to problems that require us to call on our strengths to solve them. Ingenious, don’t you think?

“Our weaknesses are divine gifts that when embraced will enable us to make our purposeful contribution to the whole, which is why we incarnated in the first place.”
— Andrew Schneider

“We acquire the strength we have overcome.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today’s Recipe: Saffron Rice Cake with Chicken 

This Persian dish is basically a savoury “cake” made from rice, yogurt, eggs, saffron and chicken. How it all binds together creates this most comforting pillowy texture unlike any other. Because it’s cooked in a pot with oil, it has this amazing crispy outer shell. You slice right into it just like a cake, and enjoy the crisp exterior and the soft interior.

Using Your power: Cat’s Angel Message for January 3, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

 

Using Your power: Cat’s Angel Message for January 3, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Your word is the power that you have to create – don Miguel Ruiz


13: We are powerful creators  and as such we have the ability to create our reality and the life we truly want. Through our beliefs, actions and thoughts our power begins to manifest. As we step up and allow ourselves to initiate control of our destiny we learn and grow. This brings new experiences as we gain understanding of our own inner wisdom. This creation process isn’t easy and sometimes isn’t for sissies. However, by having faith in ourselves (and in the Universe) we are able to handle these tough decisions and situations by going with the flow rather than fighting against them. Today the Universe is telling us that some turbulence may be headed our way. Remember that when these things happen new blessings are sure to follow. Try to go with the flow and trust in your inner guidance system. By doing so you will be able to create a more (and better) choices which allows you to take action at the right time.


Archangel Michael is the go-to guy for protection. His clear, powerful energy acts as a shield that helps to buffer energies directed at us. He guides us through rough times and sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction.  The Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us on our life path and provides direction when needed. His “big brother” energy surrounds us with loving protection. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. Nike, the Greek goddess of victory and success help us to embrace our accomplishments. She tells us “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 Stone for today is Chrysocolla. This powerful blue-green stone helps us during periods of change and challenging times. It brings smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity and calm. It helps us to be more self aware and promotes self confidence that inspires both creativity and motivation.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Make Every Day The Best: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Make Every Day The Best: Cat’s Angel Message for December 31, 2018 

December’s Theme: Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life. Taking action will aid in manifestation.


Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


1231:  As the old year comes to a close we are receiving a message and a big hug from our Angels and the Ascended Masters.

“You are amazing beings and you have grown in ways you can’t even begin to imagine over the past year. Enter into this new cycle by shifting your thoughts to a new level of love and peace. This will be essential to your continued growth in the new year. 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. Don’t be afraid to enter the new year with a new outlook on life. We are here and ready to help you all you need do is ask.”


Archangel Michael is there to offer support as we navigate our path. He helps by pointing us in the right direction and provides a boost of self confidence. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to focus on our goals. He teaches us how to avoid distractions and that sometimes it is pure stubbornness that propels us forward. The Hawaiian goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and our sense of purpose. As a goddess of empowerment she teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. She reminds you that  “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!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include Amethyst, which is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies, which it transmutes into something more positive. It dispels anxiety and fear as it helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making. It is also connected to Archangel Michael which allows us to feel his energy and the energy of divine love. And Lava Stone which is associated with Pele. This stone is a powerful symbol of our own energy. It is a stone of rebirth and helps us to burn away unneeded layers so we can initiate new growth.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Happy Tuesday,

Are you happy? This is something we should be asking ourselves and working to correct if the answer is no. It’s up to each of us to create our own happiness and to make the most today- now- this moment. Stop waiting and start creating!

Your Thoughts: Cat’s Angel Message for December 8, 2018 

December’s Theme: Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life. Taking action will aid in manifestation.


Every thought we think is creating our future. – Louise L. Hay


128:  Good news! Yesterday’s manifestation window is still open to us. The Universe is reminding us that we are powerful creators with ability to make a difference in our lives. Making the most of this opportunity will help set the tone for the remainder of the month so watching your thoughts is imperative. Your positive thinking directly reflects on your flow of abundance in all areas so stay focused on what you need and what you want to manifest. Faith and self confidence are your best friends today so round them up and let them help you create the vision you have for your future.


Let’s keep working with Archangel Sandalphon to help to deliver and answer our prayers and requests. Archangel Raziel to help us in the overall manifestation process and The Ascended Master Serapis Bey provides us with spiritual insight into the best way to help ourselves.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Black Tourmaline. While this stone clears away negative energy and offers protection it also helps to stimulate both creativity and practicality. Both of which will help us to achieve our goals.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

In Harmony: Cat’s Angel Message for November 9, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

In Harmony: Cat’s Angel Message for November 9, 2018 

November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts.  Remember that POSITIVE opens and draws and NEGATIVE closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence. – Norman Vincent Peale


119:  Our power of positive thought may be tested today. The key lies in our ability to set negativity in it’s place and move forward. So do your best to keep it at a distance and walk away from negative situations and people. This goes hand in hand with the changes we’ve been working on recently. During times of change it seems that we are more susceptible to getting caught in negative webs, so take the necessary precautions to avoid these traps. We are also reminded to look for success in everything that you do and look for at least one positive thing in every situation. There is always something that you can use to continue building the life you want. If you feel the need to move in a certain direction, or take specific action grab your confidence by the hand and move forward!


Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive adjustments to our path. The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps to rid people of negative entities and energies. His job is to banish the darkness in the minds of mankind and the Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative energy of others.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Black Tourmaline which offers protection from curses and ill wishing along with all forms of negative energy and Amber which helps the manifestation process and shows us the way to attain our goals.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Nov. 8, 2018 “Decorate Your Soul”

Happy Thursday!

Happiness is often misunderstood. The truth is that we can’t rely on others to make us happy because it’s not their job. It’s our job to create it for ourselves.
