March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.

Thought For The Day: January 24, 2020 “Downtime”

Happy Friday,

Our thought today reminds us of the importance of taking a little downtime. We all need to do this once in a while. It’s easy to push this need aside when faced with the busyness that is a part of our everyday lives. Feeling drained, tired or angry are some of the signs that a break is needed. Never apologize about taking time for yourself and when you need it…. do it!

daily Angel Message sms

Calm and Happy: Cat’s Angel Message for October 27, 2019

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


Learn to be calm and you will always be happy. – Paramahansa Yogananda


1027: Today the Universe is giving us a vacation day from the inner work that we have been doing. It’s is a great time to show yourself a little love and recharge those spiritual batteries. Ground, clear and center, meditate, take yourself to lunch or a movie, buy yourself a present or just kick back with a good book or even take a nature walk. On days like this our connection with the Divine tends to be relaxed and open. They provide the needed mental reset necessary for the next steps along your path. Gently meditate on messages that you receive today or have received recently.  Pay attention to things that excite or move you to take action as this will prepare you for some pretty nifty stuff headed our way in November!


Archangel Jophiel teaches us to slow down and appreciate the beauty around us. By taking the time to simply breathe and absorb “beauty” it can help open our communication lines by lowering the barriers we have put up.

The Ascended Master Yogananda teaches us how to open the channels of divine communication and promotes feelings of divine love. He can offer assistance in all things including your spiritual path.

The Hindu Goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit so that new information can be sent to you. “


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Ulexite (TV stone). This clear stone helps to burn away mental fog and promotes clarity of vision and thinking. It can be used during meditation and to promote relaxation.

White Topaz to help increase our connection to the Divine. This gemstone brings feelings of happiness and spiritual awareness.

Treehugger: 2019 Equinox: 12 facts about the first day of fall

Well hello, fall! Even though it happens year after year, the arrival of autumn is always a little surprising. Almost as if on a switch, one day late in the summer you feel it – a subtle crispness in the air. And before you know it, it’s pumpkin-spice-everything everywhere.

ThoughtCo: Celebrating Mabon With Kids

Mabon falls around September 21 in the northern hemisphere, and around March 21 below the equator. This is the autumn equinox, it’s a time to celebrate the season of the second harvest. It’s a time of balance, of equal hours of light and dark, and a reminder that the cold weather isn’t far away at all.

Magic and Spells for Mabon: Wiccan Spell for Balance

The Wiccan Sabbats are often reserved specifically for celebration rather than magical workings. However, there are times when we have needs, and the Sabbats are particularly powerful times to cast spells.
One big goal in Wicca is to learn to achieve balance in our lives, and sometimes finding a healthy balance can be difficult. Be it internal or external reasons, it’s so easy for problems to push us off balance, and it can be hard to get back again.

EarthSky News: Year’s fastest sunsets around equinoxes

Tonight – at sunset – here’s a natural phenomenon you might never have imagined. That is, the sun actually sets faster around the time of an equinox. The fastest sunsets (and sunrises) occur at or near the equinoxes. And the slowest sunsets (and sunrises) occur at or near the solstices. This is true whether you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere.

Inner Journey:

USE DOWN TIMES TO GOOD ADVANTAGE

“The affairs of the world will go on forever. Do not delay the practice of meditation.”
— Milarepa

In our busy schedules, we can often complain that we don’t have time to meditate. But if we are sincere in our desire to go inside, we can create our own moments of stillness in the midst of our activity.

Stopped at a traffic light? Do some deep breathing. Waiting in line at the bank or grocery store? Repeat an uplifting word such as ‘love’ or ‘peace.’ Riding the bus to and from work? Value these times as an opportunity to close your eyes and go within or to say a little prayer.

“Wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity, carry your stillness within you. Then the chaotic movement around you will never overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity, the field of pure potentiality.”
— Deepak Chopra

Daily Wisdom

Conscience

“I should love to satisfy all, if I possibly can; but in trying to satisfy all, I may be able to satisfy none. I have, therefore, arrived at the conclusion that the best course is to satisfy one’s own conscience and leave the world to form its own judgment, favorable or otherwise.”

-Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

Remember Jiminy Cricket singing “and always let your conscience be your guide.” And I can still hear his little cricket voice from the Disney cartoon, I must have heard that dozens of times when I was a kid. I think the simple explanation I was given at that time was that your conscience would always tell you the right thing to do. If you listened to your conscience, you wouldn’t give in to temptation and do something you would regret later. I may not have understood that completely when I was a child, but I get it now. Sometimes it takes some life experience for us to really learn the lesson. Gandhi is saying here that you can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself by doing what your conscience tells you is the best thing to do. Then basically let the chips fall where they may.

-Lissa Coffey

Slow Down and Chill: Cat’s Angel Message for August 30, 2019

Slow Down and Chill: Cat’s Angel Message for August 30, 2019

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month.  You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Life is as easy or as hard as you think it is. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


830: Today is a good time for a little meditation and self-care and the Universe is asking you to hold a little light and simply be at ease. Enjoy nature sounds or soothing music and fill your mind with your favorite energizing, soothing or healing color. These are different for everyone, personally, I like watery blue-green or sunny yellow-orange, so whatever color speaks to you today just enjoy it! Personal quiet time plays an essential role in your emotional and spiritual well being. Too often we forget or put off doing something just for ourselves so a bubble bath for the soul is always a good thing to indulge in!


Archangel Raphael promotes and supports healing on all levels. He helps to open our spiritual eyes which is essential when we meditate or during quiet time. He teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal our selves and our lives and therefore regain our self-confidence and faith. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude. The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps us heal through color, so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant. 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 Stones for today include:

  •  Rose Quartz today to bring inner peace and harmony. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. It helps to promote the softer, move loving view that we need to embrace gratitude, it soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. It works with the heart chakra to gently wash away negative feelings that we harbor against ourselves and lifts the emotions to promote joy and peace. It opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.
  •  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.
  • White Topaz to help increase our connection to the Divine. This gemstone brings feelings of happiness and spiritual awareness.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Love, Trust and Possibilities: Cat’s Angel Message for August 13, 2019

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month.  You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible. – Cherie-Carter Scotts


813:  It’s a good day to relax and just be. The Ascended Masters (AM’s) are traveling with us today and their message is simple, ” The Universe supports you in all that you do and all your needs are being met. Trust in the guidance that you receive and allow the blessings to unfold.” Gentle reminders like this are quite often what we need to initiate a little down time. Remember that your ground, clear and center work is a good starting point for relaxation, then do whatever makes you feel chill or brings you peace. There are no right or wrong answers so allow yourself time to reset. Remember that the things that you give attention to through your focus,  your words, your thoughts and your actions are what you will manifest. It’s all about positives and negatives, so choose the best and  and let the rest…. rest.


Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process.In turn this shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes blessings easier to receive. The Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter, this gives us a clear perspective and keeps our energy flowing. 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. Center your mind with the intent of enjoying yourself and you will find yourself centered in the moment. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process! And the Welsh goddess Cordelia is a deity of nature and technically Spring is her season. However, she has shown up today to remind us that every season has it’s own unique beauty and healing energy. Embrace joy today to help you to escape stress and let go. “Healing can be found in nature. Allow the beauty that surrounds you to renew your spirit and fill your soul with pure joy.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Chalcedony that brings mind, body, spirit and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger or self doubt. It also promotes good feeling towards self and others.
  • 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 with joy and the best in every action.
  • Softly colored Lepidolite helps us by filtering away distractions and obsessive thinking. It soothes and heals stress and reminds us to just breathe.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
