Spiritual Unite: Signs That Show You Have A Cosmic Connection With Someone

A cosmic connection that defies the laws of the physical word is irrefutable. We feel it in our bones. It has the ability to cripple our insides or to make us whole. The universe conspires in bringing us closer to our destiny because of this cosmic connection. It is beyond the comprehension of those who have never experienced it.

EarthSky News: Orion and Sirius the Dog Star

Tonight – August 29, 2018 – look for a first hint of the changing season in the predawn sky: Orion the Hunter and Sirius the Dog Star. The very noticeable constellation Orion the Hunter rises before dawn at this time of year, recognizable for the short straight line of three stars that make up Orion’s Belt. And the sky’s brightest star Sirius – sometimes called the Dog Star because it’s part of the constellation Canis Major the Greater Dog – follows Orion into the sky as the predawn darkness gives way to dawn.

Patheos-Pagan: A Guide to Forgiveness (By a Witch Who Sucks at Forgiving):

Lately on the Facebook feeds, a video about forgiveness which, although it’s from a Christian pastor, has been making waves in Pagan circles. The bolt-cutter image is wonderful. I’ve been working with this image in my meditations. Sometimes it works better than others. I have a long way to go.

Inner Journey: 

ON FREEDOM

“Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.”
— Stephen Covey

A Greek myth can help us understand the freedom that comes with power of choice.

In the Underworld, Sisyphus was condemned to roll a large stone up a hill from which it always rolled down again. Realistically, he was trapped in an endless cycle of rolling the stone. When he perceived himself to be imprisoned by the curse, he was a victim.

At one point, however, he turned the tables — he changed his mind and decided to CHOOSE to roll the stone up the hill. In doing so, he empowered himself and defused the curse.

“Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.”
— Jean-Paul Sartre

“One cannot make a slave of a free person, for a free person is free even in a prison.”
— Plato

Reality

“All our interior world is reality – and that perhaps more so than our apparent world.” -Marc Chagall
Love, joy, bliss, peace – we experience all this in our interior world, yet we cannot draw a picture or take a photo of exactly what it looks like. Our interior world is so vast, so filled with amazing gifts. Yet where do we place our attention? We’re busy trying to make our apparent world, our exterior world, look good. When we look within, we find the abundance that we so desperately seek. It is there all the time!

Discover Your World: Cat’s Angel Message for June 19, 2018

Discover Your World: Cat’s Angel Message for June 19, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it. – The Buddha


619:  When we are stressed or worried about material matters we tend to place our lives on hold or even go full frontal freaky. While being aware is good, allowing these things to rule your life is not. The truth is that this approach only magnifies the stress and worry you are feeling and we can become overwhelmed by it. The other unfortunate side effect is that it blocks our power of manifestation. Today the angels are reminding us to continue the work we have been doing on upgrading our thought patterns. They are asking us to get moving and enjoy life. Take a walk or go for a hike, build something, make something or just embrace your creative side. There are always options that cost us very little or nothing but a little time. We are in charge of creating our own reality so take some time and acknowledge your blessings and you will realize just how “wealthy” you really are!


The Ascended Master Maitreya or the Laughing Buddha, helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter. 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. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process!


Our Sacred Stone for today is Green Tourmaline. This stone (aka Verdelite) promotes joy of life, creativity, prosperity and abundance. It is also a healing stone that transforms negative energy into positive.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Nurturing Your Good Qualities: Cat’s Angel Message for June 16, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Never do anything that taints your mind. Wrong actions cause negative or evil mental vibrations that are reflected in your whole appearance and personality. Engage in those actions and thoughts that nurture the good qualities you want to have. – Paramahansa Yogananda


616: Today’s message relates to how we create our own reality and how positive thought plays an important role in our creation and manifestation processes. When we look for and expect good things to happen, they do. While it may not be exactly what we asked for, we benefit from them nonetheless. This is also a reminder about turning  your fears and worries over to Spirit and the Divine Sources.  It doesn’t matter what religion you are or whether you’re an angel person, pagan, wiccan or just spiritual. Letting the “negative nasty’s” go is imperative to your overall well being. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy and the longer we hold on to these “nasty’s” the less good we are able to manifest for ourselves. The angels are asking us to keep our thoughts, actions and energy levels positive so that we have full access to manifesting capabilities.


Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process.  The Ascended Master Melchizedek, helps us to manifest while shielding us against the negative nasty’s and overcoming unpleasant situations, and the Goddess Sulis who tells us “Look to the elemental power of water for healing and comfort. Water has the power to cleanse away heavy and harmful energies from  your body, your spirit and energy field as well.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Zoisite and it’s cousin Tanzanite. Zoisite takes negative energies and turns them into something positive. It helps us to manifest ourselves rather than what others impose on us and infuses creativity into our thinking. Tanzanite helps to link with the angelic realms, spirit guides and the ascended masters.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Make It Original: Cat’s Angel Message for June 11, 2018 

June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


If you copy then it is not self-expression. – Michael Schenker


611: Today we continue to acknowledge and embrace the positives in our lives. Remember that your thoughts help to create your reality so take the necessary steps to make it something amazing. Look to your creative side and make some upgrades to your surroundings. Declutter, paint the kitchen or maybe revamp your personal space. Whatever you choose to do make sure that it’s a reflection of your inner sparkle and light. Allow your creative side to partner with your intuition. If your intuition leads you out of your comfort zone today is a great day to take that step towards expression and empowerment. Surround your workings today with gratitude and appreciation and extend them to those you love as it creates more love to keep the energy flowing!


Touch base with Archangel Jophiel again today. Let her be your tour guide into the realms of beauty. The Hindu God Krishna brings us both joy and happiness. He helps us to see how blessed we truly are as he awakens out spirits to the good things life has to offer and the Greek Goddess Iris teaches us that miracles of beauty can happen in a instant. She says “Open your eyes, both physical and spiritual, then open your heart and allow the divine light to fill you. This will help you see the blessings and the beauty that are right before your eyes. Take nothing for granted.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the gentle energy of  Seraphinite that helps to clear the heart chakra and  opens us to love on all levels, Green Amethyst encourages us to look inward and embrace self discovery and Rose Quartz to promote self love which is key to positive self expression and empowerment.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Elephant Journal: The Poetry of Retreat

Hello May! How are we almost halfway through the year already?
This is the speed of life. Even for those of us who are consciously choosing to live a slower and more mindful lifestyle, time sure does fly more and more quickly the older we get.
This is why I participate in retreats—they serve as a blessing and an opportunity for deep transformation. Getting away from the scenery and stresses of our everyday lives enables us to dive more deeply into spiritual practice and timeless life lessons; and it makes coming home all the more sweet.

EarthSky News: Find the Omega Centauri star cluster

Tonight – or any night in the coming weeks – let the sparkling blue-white star Spica act as your guide to the Omega Centauri globular star cluster. You can see this cluster with the unaided eye, if your sky is dark enough. Omega Centauri looks like a fairly faint (and possibly fuzzy) star. It’s a beautiful and very special star cluster. In any year, Spica can help you find it.

Inner Journey:

BRING SOUL INTO THE WORLD

“We live in a culture that is greatly biased against the imagination, because our culture is very materialistic, objective and literal. Our culture lacks soul, and doesn’t know it, although it experiences the consequences. When you don’t know what’s missing, then of course you don’t know what to bring in, even though you feel something is missing.

“We live in a world that needs more soul, more meaning. We, as conscious beings, have, as our primary responsibility, at this time in human history, the task of bringing soul into the world, or releasing soul into the world. We do this, first of all, in ourselves and in our own personal world; then we do it in our groups – including family; then we do it in our society through our work, relationships and presence there.”
— Andrew Schneider

I think you’re amazing. I think your approach to life is dead-on. And I can’t think of anything you’ve ever done that I wouldn’t have done had I been in your shoes.

Still, beloved, I think we could have a little chat about visualizing more. Seeing the end result in all its glorious detail, bypassing the cursed hows, and feeling the emotions you expect to feel.

Hey, it’s my life too.

Tallyho,

Dreams

The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.” Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)

We can look at our dreams, and learn from them. And what we learn is more about ourselves! This is just another way that God speaks to us – it is just another opportunity for us to grow. And it’s all open to interpretation, just like life. What do we see, what do we feel, what do we experience? It is different for each of us – and isn’t that great?

Your Creative Vision: Cat’s Angel Message for May 10, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Your Creative Vision: Cat’s Angel Message for May 10, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown. – Denis Waitley


510: Our message today is all about being true to ourselves and trusting in our own wisdom. Sometimes this means that we must step out of our comfort zones to create  the life we want. This creation process is more apparent  during periods of growth and change so it’s important to pay attention to the messages and guidance that we receive. Remember that this information comes from many sources (the people around us, nature, dreams, intuition or from the universe.) and the signs are visible to those who pay attention. If you feel strongly directed to act then follow your heart and move forward. Likewise if it doesn’t feel right or makes you uncomfortable make a quick assessment and take another path.  If you are unsure of what to do, or the best way to proceed ask for help.  Divine guidance combined with your intuition will never steer you wrong.


The Greek Goddess Artemis teaches us about the power of our own inner wisdom. As goddess of the hunt she knows that focusing on our goals and tracking them to fulfilment = success. She tells us “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.” Archangel Sandalphon helps us by delivering prayers and requests for assistance to the helpers that are best suited for that issue. So if you are not sure who to ask then he’s a good choice and the Ascended Master Solomon teaches us how to prioritize our goals which makes achieving them easier.


 

Our Sacred Stones for today include Blue Kyanite which is associated with Artemis and and can stimulate intuition as well as help you to connect to your spirit guides. Sunny golden Citrine can also help with intuition and opening the crown chakra. It is also said to act as a warning system which is helpful for decision making. Angelite and Celestite can be used to open the lines of communication with your angels.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
