September’s Theme: “What Do I Want?” This is a question that we often ask ourselves. So as we head into Autumn and the time of introspection ask yourself that very question.

912: As we continue to work on our path, our Purpose, our Mission we are being urged to embrace fresh starts and look for new beginnings. Our lives change direction all the time so remember that when one door closes another will open. The Universe is also asking us to “Continue to make faith a part of your everyday spiritual routine. ” This is important as we enter Autumn, the season of contemplation and introspection. Start getting your game plan together as you turn your focus to new choices that will have an impact on your path and your life. Stay focused and surround yourself with positive energy as this will help activate the manifestation process and draw good things your way.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears as he guides us through issues of self doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress and confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by showing us how to work through obstacles that pop up as he teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence.

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 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.

The Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to find the answer to the question “How shall I live my life?” She tells us that every moment gives us opportunities for growth. “ When you are filled with indecision you move away from yourself and your power as a creator. Indecision silences you ability to hear your own inner wisdom. If you need my help just ask and I will shower you with energy that will tip the scales in the direction of what you desire.”

Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Amazonite. This stone is sometimes called the stone of hope. It helps us to speak our truth with confidence and instills us with hope itself. It calms and soothes frayed nerves during times of stress and helps us to feel and embrace universal love. It works with both heart and throat chakras.

Green Calcite helps us to heal on a mental level by promoting balance and communication.. It assists with the letting go and weed pulling process and invites divine flow into our lives by dissolving rigid beliefs and outdated programming.

Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it helps dispel fixed ideas and thoughts and brings the rational thinking forward so that new information is easily accepted. It is a protective stone that draws away negative energy and stress. It cleans and re-energizes the aura and promotes overall harmony and order.

Tough Questions: Cat’s Angel Message for September 5, 2020

September’s Theme: “What Do I Want?” This is a question that we often ask ourselves. So as we head into Autumn and the time of introspection ask yourself that very question.

Make friends with patience and pay attention to the smallest details.

__________________________

95: “What do I want” and “What is my purpose” are tough questions that we ask ourselves. Even if we don’t know what our “purpose “is the clues that provide that answer 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. Many of 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!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us to recover things we have lost. while he usually works with lost items he can also help when we feel out of balance by showing us the reason behind it. He also assists us as we navigate our path by helping us to find the direction and guidance that needed to move forward on this journey of self discovery. If you feel like you have wandered off your path and are having trouble finding your way back he can help you get your bearings.

The Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back he can teach you how to let it go or let it be so you can continue moving forward.

The Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that 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:

Agate. This humble stone 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.

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.

Tiger’s Eye (Gold) helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions. It is a stone of luck and prosperity and works with the energies of both earth and sun, it also helps with grounding while drawing spiritual energies to earth.

Crowds:

1. Dreaming of actually being part of an orderly and purposeful crowd implies aspirations in tune with those around you and support and assistance in making all your dreams a reality.
2. If you’re not actually involved with the crowd, however, you may feel as if you’re “on the outside looking in” with regard to what’s going on in your immediate circle.
3. An angry, out-of-control mob implies turbulent emotions. You need to slow down, take a look at your feelings, and do what you can to make sense of them.

Inner Journey:

LOOK INSIDE FOR DIRECTION

“If you see your path laid out in front of you — Step one, Step two, Step three — you only know one thing… it is not your path. Your path is created in the moment of action. If you can see it laid out in front of you, you can be sure it is someone else’s path. That is why you see it so clearly.”
— Joseph Campbell

What? No one to follow? Now that’s a scary thought!

And yet, that’s what life asks each of us to do – to chart our own path. We are each unique. We’re told our uniqueness is our gift to the world. And so why would we even want to follow in someone else’s footsteps?

Can we trust ourselves to carve our own trail?

“To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling.”
— Jean Shinoda Bolen

A Note from the Universe

If you just start dancing, I can assure you, by the powers vested in me (more than you could ever imagine), the music will be added. As will the partners, the giant disco ball, and whatever else you like.

But I must warn you, “start” is not to be confused with “start and then stop to see if anything happens.” Nope, that’s “I’m scared, tired, and not sure what I really want.”

I mean “start” as in “never stop, never look back, because even if I make a ‘mistake,’ at least I still get to dance.”

Do your thing and I’ll do mine.

Reason
“Let Reason, not impulse, be your guide.”

-Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)
I like this because Gibran used a capital “R” for reason – and I think that’s significant. We have a head, and we have a heart. We are at our best when we can use the two of them together. Reason with a little “r” might just be thinking, using our heads. But Reason with a big “R” connects the heart. Our heart can be impulsive, and our head can be impulsive – but Reason allows us that time for consideration, that time for thoughtfulness. It brings us balance, and peace of mind.

The complex meanings of a serious story or novel can be understood only by participation in the language of the story itself.

Inner Journey:

WHAT’S OFF BALANCE?

“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler

Spirit requires a balance of female and male energy, yin and yang, receptiveness and expression. Are you sensitive to intuition and inner guidance? Are you able to act on the guidance you receive? Seek to find a balance in being and doing in all areas of your life.

“The balanced energy is the birthing energy. I used to say that the birthing energy was all feminine — it’s not. You have to push and you have to be. It’s such a potent example of the dance of the feminine and masculine together, the dance that is the creative energy of life!”
— Joyce Irvine

Art

“Life has been your art. You have set yourself to music. Your days are your sonnets.”

-Oscar Wilde (1854- 1900)

Every day, our creativity guides us. We are each an artist, and life is our canvas. Life is our instrument, our marble slab, our blank page. All the choices before us are the colors, the notes, the words. We are creating our life as we create a work of art. Let’s make it beautiful!

Daily Tarot: Death

There’s a sense of security in what is old, and with something new coming into your life it’s natural to be a bit afraid. Give this new situation a chance and give yourself time to get comfortable with the new conditions. It could be as simple as getting your hair cut or changing your glasses frames, but it could be much bigger than that.

Tonight, while the moon is a few days shy of meeting up with the king planet Jupiter, let’s see if we can make out the dark areas on tonight’s waxing gibbous moon. These smooth, low-lying lunar plains are called maria, the plural for the word mare, the Latin word for sea. You should be able to see the darkened portions on the moon with the eye alone. The dark maria on the moon’s near side – the solidified remnants of ancient lunar seas of molten magma – make the near side of the moon reflect less light than the far side, which has fewer maria

Inner Journey:

REVIEW AND RECOMMIT

“Few people have any next, they live from hand to mouth without a plan, and are always at the end of their line.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Just think: When we are driving, we know where we want to go and we plot out our route. When we plan and prepare a meal, we follow a recipe and monitor the food as it cooks.

How much attention do we give to planning the direction of our lives?

Taking the time to review our quality of life gives us a chance to re-evaluate what we are doing and where we want to go. It lets us fine-tune our direction, to ensure we are on track for what we most want.

Stop and think about your last 6 months. What did you learn? What would you like to do differently? Where do you want to recommit?

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.”
— A. A. Milne

“Always have a plan, and believe in it. Nothing happens by accident.”
— Chuck Knox

Uncertainty

“Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don’t let them scare you unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.”
-R.I. Fitzhenry

We live in a world of uncertainty. No matter how hard we plan or schedule or try to control things, the truth is that anything can happen, at any time! We can embrace that, and take what comes- or we can live in a state of apprehension. But we can’t change the “unknowingness” – that’s just a part of life, so we might as well enjoy it!

It’s Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 1, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it. – Sai Baba


71: As we navigate the paths that make up our life we find that everyone has an opinion about how, when, where and why we should do things. The truth is that the only opinion that matters is our own and we are the only ones who really knows what’s in our hearts. However, well meaning people (and sometimes not so well meaning) will try to push us off our path simply because they don’t agree with or understand what we need. So take the opinions of others with a grain of salt. During this new cycle the Universe will be helping us by providing direction and guidance that will help us on our journey. You will know that you are headed in the right direction when it makes your spirit sing and your heart soar!


Archangel Michael can help in all aspects of your life’s path and purpose. He understands that while following our path is exciting it can also be a little scary when we head off in new directions. He wants us to know that he is always here to provide protection and help us find our courage. The Ascended Master Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. while his “big brother” energy surrounds us with loving protection. He can also help us when dealing with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path.  And the Hawaiian Goddess Pele teaches us how to keep things in perspective, she says “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 helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. 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.
  • Dioptase which helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action
  • Fire Agate 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. This stone is also beneficial in returning the harmful and negative energy sent by others. it returns that energy in a way that the person who sent it understands the harm they have caused.

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance our in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


I’ve learned to relax more. Everybody feels pressure in what they do, maybe mine is just a little different because there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish what I want to. – Tom Cruise


627:  Today the Universe is offering us a vacation day. We have been getting things done and are headed in the right direction. Take a break today and make time to recharge your spiritual and emotional batteries. Do something nice for yourself, create some down time and just chill and remember to give yourself a BIG hug. You deserve it! Use this vacation day wisely as we are in the final days of this month and the rest of the week will involve tying up loose ends.


Archangel Jophiel encourages us to slow down and take time to relax. She also helps to promote beautiful thoughts to replace the ones that are bugging us  or causing us stress. The Ascended Master Maitreya helps us to find joy and laughter. He teaches us that self care starts with our ability to let ourselves go and relax and the Roman Goddess Venus teaches us to truly appreciate ourselves. She says “You must put loving self care first.By doing so you become confidently empowered and fully connected to your own divine nature.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is  Rose Quartz. This is the essential self care crystal. Rose Quartz opens the heart chakra and filters away repressed emotion and things that keep us from being happy with ourselves. The soft pink hue of this Sacred Stone is soothing and tranquil and acts like a bubble bath for the heart and emotions.

Information: Cat’s Angel Message for November 10, 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.


I find motivation and inspiration and hope in information. – Mary Anne Radmacher


1110:  Today the Universe is asking us to use our intuition to receive a little divine guidance. This will provide  some much needed direction so remember to keep all receptors open. Messages can come from anywhere and at any time, such as thoughts or ideas, visual clues or even physical objects. If the message you receive doesn’t seem to make sense to you right now, file it away for future reference as you will need it at a later time. However, if you are strongly guided to take action, do so. Keep in mind that while opportunities may come back around it best to grab them when they first show up or you could miss out on something important that you need right now. It’s important to note that we should never try and force guidance to happen. Just relax and let things flow. Information comes more easily when the mind is calm.


Archangel Michael helps us to commit to our path while giving us the courage we need to keep moving. He provides direction as well as protection. The Celtic Goddess Brigid and the Egyptian Goddess Maat can help us to understand the information we receive by providing clarity and truth. And the Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) helps us to see things in a lighter and more joyous perspective.


Our Sacred Stone is Sugilite which is sometimes called Archangel Michael’s  stone. This is a stone of spiritual love and awareness and  promotes Divine interaction and communication. Sugilite also encourages positive thinking and teaches us to live our truth and to trust our intuition.

An Abundance of Opportunities: Cat’s Angel Message for March 8, 2018 

 March Theme:  This month guidance is coming from the Ascended Masters. Find what defines you and use it to inspire others. Free your creative side and share your ideas and gifts.


A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. – Winston Churchill

 38: Today we are entering a window of abundance. The Ascended Masters are urging us to be bold and grab opportunities when they present themselves.  The key is to use what you are offered to create the necessary stepping stones that will form the path to your goals and dreams. Even if it’s not exactly what you were hoping for  keep in mind that each opportunity opens a new door or window that allows us access to bigger and better things. Keep a clear vision of your ultimate end goal, not the “how to’s”, this allows you receive in a broader spectrum. Visualize, embrace and be ready to move forward!

This allows us to make the choices that will keep us moving in the right direction. The Hindu God Ganesh helps us to see the prosperity and opportunities that come our way as he removes the obstacles that keep us from achieving our goals and The Ascended Master El Morya guides us through making decisions that affect our path. The strengthening of our faith is another gift that he freely shares with us.


Use Orange Calcite help dissolve problems and insecurities that can arise when we are faced with new opportunities. This stone energizes on all levels and  helps us to embrace our full potential.

Life Is Defined By it’s Risks: Cat’s Angel Message for February 15, 2018

Life Is Defined By it’s Risks: Cat’s Angel Message for February 15, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

 Life is defined more by its contrasts than its samenesses; Life is defined more by its risks than the many securities. – Mary Anne Radmacher

  215:   Today The Universe is telling us that something in our lives is about to change for the better. Change is a normal part of life and we all go through periods of change Some we initiate, some are surprises and some happen so gradually that we hardly know they are happening.  During times of change the nature and direction of our thoughts plays an important role. If we are stuck in a negative holding pattern the process can be scary and stressful. However, by filling and surrounding ourselves with positive and confident energy we are able to set aside our worries and concerns. This allows things to happen naturally and makes the process easier so that we can embrace change with an attitude of adventure and excitement.


Archangel Jeremiel teaches us how to release worry and fear so that we are able to navigate the changes that life sends our way.  Ascended Master Melchizedek helps us to gently diffuse unpleasant situations that sometimes causes and the Yoruban Goddess Oya teaches us that change must be fully embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Changes inspire and encourage us to transcend our self imposed limitations.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Tiger Iron. This stone , which is a combination of Jasper, Hematite and Tiger’s Eye, helps to promote change by opening space within and providing the energy to accomplish what’s needed by generating new and creative ways and ideas to make the changes easier.
