Dream It, Begin It: Cat’s Angel Message for February 4, 2020

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


Whatever you can do, or dream you can, Begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it, Begin it now.

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


24: “If you can dream it you can create it”. If life has you down then it’s time to make some changes. We are being reminded today that our power is at it’s greatest level when we meet life with an adventurous attitude. To do this we must have faith in ourselves and believe with every fiber of our being that our dreams are within reach if we just keep trying. Sometimes things happen quickly and other times we wait. However, behind the scenes wheels are turning, things are happening and pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. For those who aren’t quite ready to take the complete plunge, take baby steps and one thing at a time. Don’t waste time over-analyzing,  find one thing that you can start building from and meet your adventure. Our spiritual helpers are with us all the time offering guidance and protection and their loving energy surrounds you and supports you in every way.


Today’s Spiritual Guides include:

Archangel Chamuel assists in all areas of our path. He can help you find the direction and guidance that you will need 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 Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence.

The Greek Goddess Athena embodies change and transformation through experience and learning. She tells us ” You are a warrior in your own right. Every day you choose the battles that will fight so make the wisest choices you can, each choice will help lead you to victory.”


Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Pyrite has warm, positive energy. It teaches us to have confidence in our skills and abilities so that we are able to realize our true potential by stimulating new ideas and knowledge of our own self worth. Pyrite also helps to balance instinct with innate intuition and overall creativity.

Jade can provide aid in problem-solving and shows us the path to reaching our goals and actualizing our dreams. It also promotes emotional balance and self-confidence as it gently dissipates negativity and brings peace on all levels. Jade which attracts both prosperity and good luck. Jade helps us to understand that we are spiritual beings on this very human journey we call life. It stimulates knowledge and ideas.

Sunstone brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. It brings out our natural optimism, self-confidence and promotes our natural flow of abundance as it soothes our fear of change and the accompanying stress that change can bring.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Spiritual Unite: The Dragon Keeper – A Symbolic Story About The Kundalini Rising Inside All Of Us 

A symbolic fictional story about the kundalini Rising inside all of us.
Once upon a time, in a far away land, a dragon was formed. This dragon was a creative aspect of you because, energetically, you are a serpent of life. You are the womb of all creation. You were born from the egg. You are destined to be the fire breather, as the raging beast that you are.

Flowers

“Beautiful, tender flowers grow upon the lava lips of Mono craters, pines ascend their ashy slopes, and it is just where the glaciers have crushed heaviest that the greatest quantity of beautiful life appears.”

-John Muir (1838-1914)

Life has a way of showing up. Grass makes its way through cracks in a sidewalk. Daffodils poke through previously frozen ground to find the sun. We might think of flowers as delicate and fragile, but they are strong, and full of life!

EarthSky News: Annular solar eclipse on December 26

2019’s only annular eclipse – the third and final solar eclipse of this year – falls on December 26. It’s visible along a narrow path in the world’s Eastern Hemisphere. Like a total solar eclipse, an annular solar eclipse happens when the new moon moves directly in front of the sun. During a total solar eclipse, the new moon completely covers over the solar disk. During an annular eclipse, the lunar disk is too small to totally cover over the sun, so an annulus – or thin ring of the sun’s surface – surrounds the new moon silhouette.

Patheos-Pagan: Let It Go: Multidimensional Magick

Recently, I appeared on Desperate House Witches to promote Psychic Witch, and it was probably the funniest interview that I’ve ever done. Raina and Dorian were truly hilarious interviewers. One of the things that Dorian brought up was that her magick seems to work when she doesn’t focus on it or dwell on it or overthink it. She mentioned that it’s only when she “lets it go” that the magick manifests. That’s something I’d like to elaborate on a bit more in this post.

Inner Journey:

IT’S A MATTER OF BALANCE.

“My soul is the bridge between spirit and body and, as such, is a uniter of opposites. …Without soul at center, I would either transcend into spirit or become mired in matter.”
— Marion Woodman
Ram Dass talks of how his first spiritual goal was to be rid of his physical existence. He came to understand, though, that our spirituality lies in bringing higher consciousness to our world of form. When we can do so, we can delight in all aspects of creation.
Soul exists in the balance of spirit and matter. For a soulful life, we pay attention to both, seeing spiritual qualities in material forms. As our awareness grows, we begin to use consciousness to influence and create form. It’s through form that our spirit expresses.
“Walk in balance with one foot in your spiritual understanding and one foot in your physical world of accomplishment.”
— Lynn V. Andrews

A Note from the Universe

If it’s not yet obvious to you, the real reason for this, and all seasons, is you. A more perfect child of the Universe has never lived. Until now, only celebrations cloaked in myth and mystery could hint at your divine heritage and sacred destiny. You are life’s prayer of becoming and its answer. The first light at the dawn of eternity, drawn from the ether, so that I might know my own depth, discover new heights, and revel in seas of blessed emotion.

A pioneer into illusion, an adventurer into the unknown, and a lifter of veils. Courageous, heroic, and exalted by legions in the unseen.

To give beyond reason, to care beyond hope, to love without limit; to reach, stretch, and dream, in spite of your fears. These are the hallmarks of divinity – traits of the immortal – your badges of honor. May you wear them with a pride as great as what we feel for you.

Your light has illuminated darkened paths, your gaze has lifted broken spirits, and already your life has changed the course of history.

This is the time of year we celebrate you.

Bowing before Greatness,

The Universe

Lithomancy is the practice of performing divination by reading stones.

However, because our ancient ancestors didn’t leave us a lot of information about how to read the stones, many of the specific aspects of the practice have been lost forever.

As one of the most popular mythological creatures in modern day, the dragon is no mystery. It does, however, have a lengthy history that many people are unaware of.

However, like all creatures of ancient lore, the dragon had more humble beginnings.

“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”

Take the power of ‘what if…’ seriously, and you will grasp the power to create a world of your own design. Everything, EVERYTHING begins in the imagination. Put it to work constructively for you.

Paradoxes

“God hides things by putting them near us.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Isn’t this so true? It’s one of those “forest for the trees” examples. There is joy and love and beauty all around us, and right inside of us… and yet where do we look? Many of the great spiritual teachers answer every question they are asked with the same statement: “Look within.” They might say it in hundreds of different ways, but the meaning is the same. It’s so simple, and yet so complex- what a paradox!

Anger could raise its ugly little head today, but you have things under control. Don’t engage, if possible, and tactfully deflect the worst of whatever misunderstanding caused the outbreak.

Be at your best today.

Inner Journey: 

TRUST IN ABUNDANCE

“Once, when we were discussing a world peace project with my teacher, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, somebody asked him, ‘Where is all the money going to come from?’ And he replied without hesitation, ‘From wherever it is at the moment.'”
— Deepak Chopra

How can you open to greater trust that you’ll always have what you need?

Fear, doubt, anxiety and disbelief all serve to repel abundance from us. Faith, love and gratitude for the gifts of our lives keep energy and abundance flowing. The more we trust in our well being, the more it will be realized.

“Manifestation is an act of trust. It is the soul pouring itself out into its world, like a fisherman casting a net to gather in the fish he seeks; with each cast properly made, we will bring what we need to us, but first we must hurl ourselves into the depths without knowing just what lies beneath us.”
— David Spangler

A Note from the Universe

Usually, the best way to find the yellow brick road of your life is to start out on the dusty, dirt one.

And then let yourself become so preoccupied in making the best of it, having fun, and challenging yourself that you actually stop paying attention to the path.

Until, one day, not so long from now, with a new best friend, wearing cool clothes, feeling awesome, a teeny tiny bit taller, fresh from a WOW vacation, looking for the path you just left, you’ll notice that it’s 24 carats… baby.

And you’ll wonder for a long, long time, sipping on some exotic fruit drink, when the transformation actually took place…

Tripping,

The Universe

Sharing is not limited to material things. We can share our memories, experiences, and knowledge for example. The beauty in this is that we aren’t giving those things away – we couldn’t if we tried! But they are so valuable, and they become even more valuable, when we share them other people. The most simple advice can be such a treasure. The fact that we are open and willing to share what we have learned can make this journey more beneficial for all of us.

Never fear though, your bounty need not go to waste! Here’s everything you need to know about harvesting and using homegrown mint.

ThoughtCo: Myrrh 

If you do any work at all with aromatherapy, chances are good you’ve encountered the scent of myrrh at some point. Much like frankincense, myrrh is not an herb but a resin, and appears with some relevance in a number of religious and spiritual contexts.

MBG: How To Make Your Midday Walk A More Mindful Experience, From A ‘Walking Professor’

To honor her new book, Afoot and Lighthearted: A Journal for Mindful Walking, I chatted with Whitehouse about why strolls can be so valuable in an academic setting and beyond. The conversation meandered like a good long walk tends to. Along the way, she shared why bringing a journal on a hike is a good idea, how to move without a destination in mind in a results-driven world, and how to make any walk a more mindful and meaningful experience. It left me wanting to drop everyone, leave my phone behind, and seek out the nearest trail.

MNN: Why do some people remember their dreams more than others?

When you wake up in the morning, what’s the last thing you remember? Is it your head hitting the pillow the night before or something odd or interesting that happened to you in a dream?

Starlight Witch: You Don’t Have To Wait For The New Moon

Many people work with the cycles of the moon, growing their magic on the waxing moon and banishing on the waning moon. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can banish on the waxing crescent. You can even manifest on the third quarter moon. The moon’s energy will work with you if it can. However, if it’s not in alignment with your goals, it certainly will not oppose you.

Today’s Deity: Baba Yaga

In Russian folklore, Baba Yaga or Baba Jaga (UK: /ˌbɑːbə ˈjɑːɡə/; Russian: Баба Яга [ˈbabə jɪˈɡa]) is a supernatural being (or one of a trio of sisters of the same name) who appears as a deformed and/or ferocious-looking woman. In Russian fairytales Baba Yaga flies around in a mortar, wields a pestle, and dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs. Baba Yaga may help or hinder those that encounter or seek her out and may play a maternal role and has associations with forest wildlife. According to Vladimir Propp’s folktale morphology, Baba Yaga commonly appears as either a donor, villain, or may be altogether ambiguous.
Andreas Johns identifies Baba Yaga as “one of the most memorable and distinctive figures in eastern European folklore,” and observes that she is “enigmatic” and often exhibits “striking ambiguity.” Johns summarizes Baba Yaga as “a many-faceted figure, capable of inspiring researchers to see her as a Cloud, Moon, Death, Winter, Snake, Bird, Pelican or Earth Goddess, totemic matriarchal ancestress, female initiator, phallic mother, or archetypal image”

Inner Journey:

CREATE CONSCIOUSLY

“No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes.”
— Napoleon Hill

The law of karma is the law of cause and effect. It works unavoidably when there is no consciousness — when we are not present in the moment. When there is no consciousness, the past creates the future.

The law of Love supersedes the law of karma. It intervenes in the process by focusing in the present. In fact, one could say that Love is being fully present. When anything is initiated in Love in the present, the future of that reality will be purposeful, meaningful, loving and powerful.

“He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and will find the flaw when he may have forgotten its cause.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“In my beginning is my end.”
— T.S. Eliot

Okay, this is called lemonade but limes are used instead? That’s because true Brazilian lemons taste like limes. And, yes, creamy sweet milk makes this drink taste awesome! Any leftover sweetened condensed milk can be kept in a closed glass or plastic container in the refrigerator for about two weeks

Present

“Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

This is such a powerful concept that entire books have been written on this very topic – Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now” is just one example. Now is the only time there is, and when we live in this very moment, all of our potential can be realized.

-Lissa Coffey

Dreams: Cat’s Angel Message for April 12, 2019

Dreams: Cat’s Angel Message for April 12, 2019 

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.

 


Dreams are the touchstones of our character. – Henry David Thoreau


412:  Dreams can be a powerful tool for solving problems. If you remember your dreams make note of them or write them down ( or at least what you remember)  you can then look for answers in the symbolism. Ask yourself the following questions: * Who was there with me? *Where was I in this dream? *What was I /we doing? * What stood out? (feelings, colors, animals, places people etc)
Examine the information and see how it pertains to what you are going through. The dreams that we remember vividly always correspond to people, and situations that are impacting our life and there are always lessons to learn and personal knowledge in them. You can ask the angels or archangels to assist you in your dreams. They are more than happy to help clear away negative or pessimistic thoughts and feelings. You have the power to help and heal yourself so use it to your best advantage!


Draw upon the energy and knowledge of Archangel Jeremiel who works with visions, life reviews/changes and dream interpretations. The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps us heal  through color, so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant. And the Inuit Goddess Sedna helps us develop our intuition through the dreamtime, you can connect with her in or around water. (bath or shower works) “Look to your dreams to guide you.They will show you things you missed while your mind was busy and active”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:  The gentle energy of Seraphinite clears the heart chakra and helps to open us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life, and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path. Celestite to help you remember your dreams and Smoky Quartz to help find the meaning of them.


  Bright blessings for a magickal day!
