Daily Good: Unexpected Art in Unexpected Places

What happens when we look more closely, whether with the naked eye or equipment? Incredible details come into focus, bringing with them the possibility of beauty and interest we might never have conceived of. Imagine what would occur if you suddenly zoomed in on all those things you have lying around your house and studio or rusting outside. What new art might be inspired by such “stuff”? Mikra Knaster shares more in this piece

I am not strong because I have an iron will and Protestant work ethic.
I am not strong because I can slap a game face on and pull myself up by my bootstraps.
I am not strong because “I wish a mother f*cker would.”
I am strong because one day, I decided to love myself exactly as I am.

MNN: The red-cockaded woodpecker is making a comeback

Endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers were once common across the Southeast U.S. The mostly black-and-white birds made their homes in pine forests, drilling holes in the trees to search for insects. But with increased logging, much of their habitat was lost. As the trees diminished, so did the woodpeckers.

EarthSky News: Moon’s near side is its dark side

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

Patheos-Pagan: Sea Charm for Protection

Last month I was out of town much of the month. Part of my travel was to San Francisco for a lovely well needed vacation. The second part was to attend my 2nd year at Pantheacon. It was a fantastic time, and I will be blogging about some of the things I learned very soon. However this blog is all about a Sea Charm for protection.

Today’s Deity: Kali

Kali comes from the Sanskrit root word Kal which means time. There is nothing that escapes the all-consuming march of time. In Tibetan Buddhism Her counterpart is male with the name Kala. Mother Kali is the most misunderstood of the Hindu goddesses. The Encyclopedia Britannica is grossly mistaken in the following quote, “Major Hindu goddess whose iconography, cult, and mythology commonly associate her with death, sexuality, violence, and, paradoxically in some of her later historical appearances, motherly love

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

Today’s Recipe: Creamy Garlic Sauce

This is a delicious and easy-to-make garlic sauce. It’s based on a Lebanese garlic sauce I get at one of my favourite shops, but this comes out to being about 1/5th the price (and has no chemicals)! I like using this alongside my meat dishes, as a roast veggie dip, or swiped on breads and crackers.

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!

-Lissa Coffey

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.

Bright blessings for a magickal day! Cat

daily Angel Message sms

 

Just Relax: Cat’s Angel Message for June 27, 2019

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.

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

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

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.

Attitude Determines Progress: Cat’s Angel Message for February 3, 2018

Attitude Determines Progress: Cat’s Angel Message for February 3, 2018  

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

A cheerful frame of mind, reinforced by relaxation…
is the medicine that puts all ghosts of fear on the run.
– George Matthew Adams

23: Our ability to create the things we want in life comes down to one thing …. Attitude. Your belief in and the way you present yourself to the world is a manifestation of your power. If  we meet life with a confident , cheerful and optimistic mindset we have increased our chances, 10 fold,  of meeting our goals and dreams. Alternately, a pessimistic attitude effectively stops our progress. Today the Universe is reminding us that help is always available in the forms of direction, protection and guidance and the angels and ascended masters are continuously surrounding us with these things. Remember to embrace confidence as you work toward your objectives. If you need help just ask. Their insights and knowledge are valuable assets when combined with our own faith and courage. believe that you are capable of manifesting and creating great things and great things WILL happen!

Archangel Raziel helps us with the manifestation process by guiding our steps in the right direction. The Ascended Master Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha, teaches us about the power of joy and laughter. Both are healing and both help us to maintain cheerful optimism and the Irish goddess Aine helps us to find enjoyment in life while boosting our faith. Our Sacred Stone for today is Agate.  This humble stone helps by raising our consciousness and awareness of our life. It promotes spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to get the most from our life experiences.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
