Daily Good: How to Break the Loop of Our Destructive Patterns

When we’re afraid, we often find ourselves caught up in habitual ways of responding that fail to bring us the relief we seek. “To keep repeating a baleful pattern without recognizing that we are caught in its loop is one of life’s greatest tragedies; to recognize it but feel helpless in breaking it is one of our greatest trials; to transcend the fear of uncertainty, which undergirds all such patterns of belief and behavior, is a supreme triumph.” In a beautiful response to Vincent Van Gogh’s 1884 letter to his brother on fear and risk-taking, novelist Nicole Krauss sheds light on how rather than being governed by our fears, we can recognize the opportunity to step outside of them and ultimately overcome them

Coffey Talk: Numerology of Number 4

As we continue our series on Vedic Numerology, today we take a look at the number 4.

Those born on day 4, 13, 22, or 31 in any month are ruled by the number 4, and by Rahu. Rahu is one of the two nodes of the moon, the other being Ketu. Rahu is the north node of the moon, it is active and works primarily on mental energy. Rahu can bring confusion and dissatisfaction. It can also great talent in the arts, painting, writing and editing. It can cause 4 people to be suspicious or secretive, and this can cause problems in their family life. They often have the ability to see the unseen. They make good spies and detectives.

Rahu has been described by astrologers as smoky. It has no shape on its own and is always changing, and when present it obscures the shape of what is nearby. Rahu gives 4 people intelligence, courage, and patience.

4 people are prone to lots of changes in their lives. They get used to this, and take it in stride. However, this tends to make them uncertain, so they often seek the advice of others. 4 people root for the underdog. This is probably because they often face opposition and can relate. They are flexible, easily adjusting themselves in social situations. They can be stubborn and unconventional, but they are also efficient and organized. They like to make a difference; they advocate for social and environmental reform, and they often go into politics. They are not afraid of facing opposition and can often be selfish. They need to take care not to isolate themselves or they could get depressed.

Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays are generally good days for 4 people. Blue, grey and khaki are favorable colors.

There is a saying that when 4’s appear, angels are near. 4 is all about safety, security and stability. When you see 4’s repeated it’s basically the universe saying to you “don’t worry, I’ve got you.”

Glen Campbell and Jack Nicholson were both born on April 22 – a 4 day in a 4 month!

MNN: Ancient Egyptian tomb turns out to be crawling with mummified cats

It’s no secret that ancient Egyptians had an abiding fondness for cats. Many gods were depicted with unmistakably feline features. And strict laws forbade anyone from harming a cat.
But there seems to have been a bit of a legal loophole for turning cats into mummies.

EarthSky News: Moon, Mars pair up November 14-16

These next several evenings – November 14, 15 and 16 – highlight the moon and Mars coming quite close together on the sky’s dome. Look first for the moon, and you can’t miss the red planet Mars, which shines more brilliantly than a 1st-magnitude star all month long. For us in North America, the moon will swing closest to Mars for the month on the evening of November 15

Patheos-Pagan: You Are Your Own Spiritual Authority

Witch, Pagan, Neo-Pagan, Wiccan, and so on. These are all labels, titles, words to allow us to fit ourselves into little boxes. They are also words that create an us vs. them mentality. “I am not a Wiccan.” “You shouldn’t capitalize neopagan.” And my ever favorite and constant argument, “Well, actually, that tradition you practice in is only XX years old.” We spend a lot of time telling other people what does or doesn’t make their practice legit. We waste a lot of energy ‘othering’ those whose practices aren’t in perfect alignment with our own.

Personally I’m rather tired of it.

Inner Journey:

QUESTION YOUR INTENTION

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else ….”
— Archibald Alexander

Why are you doing what you are doing?

Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Are you doing what you are doing for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons, or in honest service? Maybe you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose. This is a great way to become more conscious.

Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Note from the Universe

Do you know what tickles me?

Besides you.

For every single time-space manifestation, from catching a cold to the accumulation of massive personal wealth, a shifting of props and persons must be choreographed from here with mind-boggling precision. Taking into account not only all of your other thoughts, beliefs, and expectations as they change from moment to moment, but those of everyone else on the planet, so that not one of you, not one, is ever denied getting exactly what you think about.

And to answer the often unasked question, “Yes, you can still have it all, no matter what others in your life might think, say, or do.”

Talk about multi-tasking –

Today’s Recipe: Spicy Asian Watermelon Salad

Packed with nuts, avocados, tomatoes and watermelon, this dish is loaded with great textures. It’s also full of vitamins and healthy fats. I didn’t use an oil in the dressing because of the balance you get from the cashews and avocado. This savoury and spicy twist on a melon salad makes a great side for any meal. Give it a try!

Daily Wisdom
November 14, 2018

Laughter

“Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I’ve had my share. But whatever happens to you, you have to keep a slightly comic attitude. In the final analysis, you have got not to forget to laugh.”

-Katharine Hepburn

Most of comedy is built on tragedy – the slip on the banana peel, the pie in the face, the big misunderstanding. And we laugh because we can relate – we’ve been there. In movies there can only be so much drama before we’re offered up some “comic relief.” Writers know that audiences need a break in their emotions or they just go numb. Yes, life is tragic, and life can also be hysterically funny. Have you ever had one of those things happen where you say: “We’re going to look back on this and laugh one day?” We all have. And you know what? That day does come when we laugh – and it feels good.

-Lissa Coffey

Hard Times: Cat’s Angel Message for October 9, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


 People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles. – Emily Dickinson


109:   We all go through hard or difficult times. These experiences help us with our personal  growth and benefit us in many unexpected ways. Today, expect to gain some insights regarding your life purpose. Make these insights your priority because the decisions and choices that you make will play a profound role in your personal evolution. Your intuitive skills will also come into play so keep the lines of communication open as you go about your business. You can also expect to receive guidance from the Universe as well. Remember that Divine guidance comes in many forms so a few creative nudges are possible. Stay focused on the the things you want to make happen and use the information that you receive to move forward or to tweek your “design plan”. The Universe is here to support you so request what you need and release any lingering doubts or fears. Let Spirit fill you with divine energy and get ready to start a new adventure!


Archangel Raguel wants us to experience the best life possible and can promote healthy relationships that uplift and carry us forward. You can ask him to help you smooth over arguments or uneasy relationships. Saint Padre Pio has an optimistic and uplifting energy that he loves to share with those who ask. He assists in both faith and areas requiring spiritual growth. And the Irish goddess Brigid helps us to access our creative mind. This promotes creative thinking and problem solving which is helpful when we hit rough patches.


Our Sacred Stone for the day is Aventurine. This stone helps us in learning to accept the gifts and blessings that are given to us. It also strengthens our leadership abilities and promotes decisive thinking.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Forward and Back: Cat’s Angel Message for October 7, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


The further forward we go, the further back we have to explore in order to go forward again. – Stephen Gardiner 


107:  Today we are being reminded  to listen to our own intuition in conjunction with divine guidance. It’s time to explore our own potential by staying focused on the present. By acknowledging our gifts the paths to manifestation open up before us. These paths branch out in many different directions and when we open our connection to the Divine we find the guidance we need  to navigate the twists and turns. When you receive sudden thoughts, ideas or inspirations,  be sure to take the time to examine them in a positive light as they contain the information we need to make things happen. Don’t be afraid to embrace something new and always look for creative solutions that will open new doors. You truly are able to and worthy of creating your ultimate future!


Archangel Michael helps us to find our courage and our direction..The Greek goddesses Artemis and Hecate are both associated with intuition. Hecate helps to open the pathways of inspiration. She also teaches us to see what can be and what should be, her message is ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must face your fears and release the past. Change and circumstance are inviting you to choose a path. It is your choice so make the one that is best for you.”  Artemis teaches us how to embrace our natural intuitive abilities and how to st our sights on our goals to achieve maximum manifestation. “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.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are: Amethyst which helps to open and enhance our intuitive abilities, Star Sapphire helps to center our thoughts so that our intuition flows freely and Moss Agate which helps highly intuitive folks channel their energy in a practical manner.

Getting Creative: Cat’s Angel Message for October 2, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


The uncreative mind can spot wrong answers, but it takes a very creative mind to spot wrong questions. – Antony Jay


102:  We all know that problems and issues can pop up out of nowhere and effectively blindside us.  If you are currently experiencing this, whether it’s something new, something old or a reoccurring issue, help is on the way. The Sacred Source (Goddess, God) along with the Angels and Ascended Masters will always offer assistance. Be clear in your request and believe that all will be well and that a solution will present itself. Stay open to receiving the guidance and messages that will come to you and be willing to try unconventional or creative solutions. Your ability for creative thinking will play an important roll this month so don’t be afraid to think outside the box!


Facing problems can often leave us confused as to what to do next. Archangel Michael  helps to give us the confidence that we need to commit to the course of action that we know is best. The Ascended Master Solomon help you navigate difficult situation and shows you that nothing is impossible and the Egyptian goddess Maat shows the truth behind confusing issues along with the necessary steps to find a solution. She tells us to  “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are:  Satin Spar Selenite makes it a great meditation stone. It opens the crown chakra to help us receive universal guidance as it calms the emotions and promotes inner peace. And, Lepidolite helps us to focus on the important things and filter out any distractions that come knocking.

Solving Things Creatively: Cat’s Angel Message for August 12, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Solving Things Creatively: Cat’s Angel Message for August 12, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be. – Joy Page


812:  Today we continue on the theme of creative problem solving. We are all capable of creating new and better ways of making things happen. However some seem to have difficulty in activating their problem solving skills. This could be because they’re  afraid to let themselves go, of making mistakes or of what others may think. Be courageous and give yourself permission to use the abilities that you have. By allowing our creative mind to blossom it invites new ideas to come, visit and invite friends. 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!


Archangel Uriel teaches us  how to access our creative database. he reminds us that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to use a non-conventional approach. 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 stop fighting the things that we have no control over.(This blocks our problem solving and creative flow) and the Hawaiian Goddess  Pele tells us 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 burn away old and outdated ways of doing things!”


Keep working with Chiastolite (Cross Stone, Andalusite) to help balance problem solving with with creativity and practicality or simple Lava Stone which acts as a visual reminder of our inner fire.

Paint In Bold Colors: Cat’s Angel Message for August 11, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Today is your day to paint life in bold colors; set today’s rhythm with your heart-drum; walk today’s march with courage; create today as your celebration of life. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


811: Creative thinking plays an important role in our overall manifestation process. By learning to embrace your creativity we can negate the effect of worry and fear.  When combined with positive thought and gratitude we find that all problems are easier to solve( including financial ones) and new doors and paths open up all around us. As far as daily numbers go, today’s includes the master number 11 which is asking us to step out of our comfort zone as we create the reality we want for ourselves. Be sure to pay attention repetitive thoughts and ideas. Use them to guide you today as they can offer solutions to current issues. It’s a great day to practice your creative problem solving skills, so be bold and stay open to new ideas!


Archangel Jophiel helps us to release worry  so that our creative thought process can step forward and take center stage. She teaches us that by slowing down and taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily. If you have obstacles in your path ask the Hindu God Ganesh to help you move them. Ganesh brings good fortune and abundance and can assist with creative problem solving. And the Irish Mother Goddess Dana tells us “While you wait for these blessings to arrive fill your heart with feelings of abundance. Engage yourself in things that make you feel abundant!” ….. ” Your energy is linked to the energy of the Divine. Acknowledge and strengthen this connection as it allows you to handcraft your dreams.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem solving process and Sandstone which clears the mind of distractions and enhances overall creativity.

Creating the Future: Cat’s Angel Message for August 3, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


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


83: Assistance comes in various forms especially where prosperity and abundance are concerned. The Ascended Masters (AM’s) are requesting that we open our connection with them and allow them to help us today. As they walk the path with us simply ask for guidance and the ability to see valuable assistance in whatever form it takes. The AM’s can also help us to focus on the divine spark that lives within each of us. This helps to create a positive energy flow which is an important factor when dealing with our ability to create and manifest. The other tool we have at our disposal is creative thought which enables us to visualize new possibilities and put them to use. Stay focused open and take joy in walking the lighter side today!


Archangel Raziel can help us with the manifestation process by teaching us how to access and  utilize our own divine magick. Call on your favorite Ascended Master today or try connecting with El Morya. El Morya offers us protection from negative energy that comes from others and the kind we generate for ourselves. This helps us to stay grounded in our faith and promotes making positive choices.


Our Sacred Stone is Fire Agate. This stone allows you to embrace feelings of safety and trust as you navigate your path. It keeps us grounded and offers support when times get hard.
