It’s Ok To Ask: Cat’s Angel Message for March 30, 2021

It’s Ok To Ask: Cat’s Angel Message for March 30, 2021

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.

____________________________

By asking for what you need new avenues open up before you. ~Cat

_____________________________

330: Have you ever noticed that sometimes it’s hard to admit that we need help? It happens…..you know it does! While being self sufficient is a good thing there are times when we just can’t do it alone. The refusal to ask for or accept help is born out of pride and ego. While these things are good in small doses we have to know when to put them on the shelf when they get in the way. Sometimes all we need is someone to listen and sometimes we need a little more. Remember, there is absolutely no shame in asking for help. You can start with the Angels and the Ascended Masters, they are always available (I always ask Archangel Michael, he’s my go-to guy!) and ready to assist you in anything that brings peace to you and your loved ones.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Sandalphon hears all requests and makes sure that they get to the Angel or Ascended Master who is best able to handle them. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!). Sandalphon also provides us with an emotional boost of courage. This is important as it helps us to make bold decisions that will help us on our path.

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 to stop fighting the things that we have no control over, which blocks our problem solving and creative flow. Things flow easier when we are not struggling against the “what if’s and maybes.

The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Amethyst is a powerful protector that helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the decision-making process by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement.

Apophyllite promotes a strong connection between the physical body and the information that is transmitted from the spiritual realms. It also helps to bring Universal love into the decision-making process so that mind and spirit are connected.

Azurite increases our ability to receive spiritual guidance and helps us to see through illusions so that we can see our path clearly. It helps to develop our intuitive skills as it expands the mind to promote clear thinking, understanding and new perspectives.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Inner Journey: RESPONSIBILITY BRINGS POWER

“To be tested is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist.”
— Gail Sheehy

What holds you back from being all that you are?

In your journal, list at least 5 things that hold you back.

Now review your answers. Have you blamed people or factors outside of yourself?

It’s important to understand that ALL obstructions are rooted in our internal blocks. Even the problems that appear to be outside of us are only reflecting back to us problems we have inside. Once we address our inner issues, the outer problems disappear.

Be personally accountable for everything in your life and watch your perspectives shift. We claim our power when we accept responsibility for our lives.

“Conscious evolution begins as we take responsibility for clearing our own obstructions.”
— Dan Millman

Daily Wisdom
March 8, 2021

Women and Men
“I object to anything that divides the two sexes. My main point is this: human development has now reached a point at which sexual difference has become a thing of altogether minor importance. We make too much of it; we are men and women in the second place, human beings in the first.”

-Olive Shreiner (1884)


The “battle of the sexes” was an issue back in the 1800’s and we’re still talking about it today. Clearly, there is a difference between men and women. But maybe we’ve come to the point where we can understand that our similarities far outweigh our differences. Rather than look at what divides us, let’s look at what binds us. We aren’t Martians and Venusians, we’re here together on the same planet.

Invitations to Stillness: Japanese Gardens

“Every element in the Japanese garden from the shape of the pruned pine trees to the careful placement of stepping stones has intention and is specifically designed to cultivate nuanced awareness. The contrast between what is placed and what is left blank, brings to life a pictorial space that leaves room for our imagination. Symbolism and metaphor in the garden also offer powerful tools to help humans reconcile their own lives and relationships to both society and the larger forces of nature. The American garden scholar Kendall Brown argues that ‘The opportunity for direct engagement with nature is what makes all gardens compelling but, as Japanese gardens function so effectively as philosophical and physical microcosms, their power is even stronger.'” More in this lovely essay. { read more }

Inner Journey: IS YOUR EGO INVOLVED?

“There is no room for God in him who is full of himself.”
— Hasidic Saying

On the spiritual path, we must be diligent to discriminate whether we are acting from ego or from soul. If ego is in charge, what we do is self- referencing. At the deepest levels, we are motivated by our own self-interest. We’re looking out for ourselves more than for others.

Although soul works through individuals, its focus is on the needs of others and on service to humanity.

“Do not feed your ego and your problems, with your attention. … Slowly, surely, the ego will lose weight, until one fine day it will be nothing but a thin ghost of its former self. You will be able to see right through it, to the divine presence that shines in each of us.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“Why aren’t you happy? It’s because ninety-nine percent of everything you do, and think, and say, is for yourself — and there isn’t one.”
— Wu Wei Wu

Self-Determination
“We make ourselves up as we go.”

-Kate Green, 1983


Determination of the self sounds to me like defining ourselves. Life is a canvas, and we are the artist. Life is a song, and we write the lyrics. Life is a computer, and we are the programmer! There are dozens of analogies, but the outcome is the same. We create our lives. We determine our own destiny. Life is a journey, and we’re in the driver’s seat! So where do you want to go?

They confessed trying many other approaches before reaching out to him, but with no success. The master agreed to come and asked for a small hut with a garden that he could tend. For three days, he tended the garden, performing no special rituals or asking anything further from the villagers…” So begins an intriguing Taoist parable, that is used here as a springboard into an exploration of synchronicity, and the idea of ‘being the change we wish to see in the world’. { read more }

Inner Journey: EGO’S TRICKS

“One of the great dangers of transformational work is that the ego attempts to sidestep deep psychological work by leaping into the transcendent too soon. This is because the ego always fancies itself much more ‘advanced’ than it actually is.”
— Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

The Tibetan teacher, Chogyam Trungpa, warned of the trap of spiritual materialism. He says we must be ever diligent to spot the ego’s use of the spiritual journey to further its own ends.

We may think it’s spiritual to yearn for divine connection. And yet, if the longing is to fill an emptiness inside, just how does this differ from the one who yearns for money or possessions to fill the inner void? Do we look to our spiritual practices as proof of our evolved consciousness or as protection against fears?

Any time we use spiritual disciplines to maintain our identity and security, we are not yet on the path of genuine spiritual development.

“Enlightenment is ego’s ultimate disappointment.”
— Chögyam Trungpa

A Note from the Universe

It’s me, the Universe, and I’ve heard a little rumor.

Seems someone on Earth is asking for their own thriving business and a steady income!!!! Phew, wouldn’t that be nice! Know anyone?

I thought so. Well, guess what?

I have one, and it’s ready for delivery!

Would you do me a little favor?

Would you tell them that in order to get it from here to there, all they have to do is close their eyes, count to three, click their heels, give thanks that it’s already in their life, and begin moving toward it?

No, no. Some of that’s “make believe,” but so is their thriving business and a steady income, until they stop asking, and start giving thanks and moving toward it.

Tallyho,

The Universe

Goals
“The final goal of human effort is man’s self-transformation.”

-Lewis Mumford (1895-1990)


What I love about this quote is that it says “self-transformation,” not just “transformation.” Transformation is change, growth. We can’t change anyone but ourselves. We can’t grow for anyone but ourselves. When we realize, as a whole, how important it is for us to transform individually, and we each take responsibility for this, then great change will occur globally.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

There may be moment or two when you feel responsible for everything in the world and like it’s your duty to take care of everyone. Relax, let this wash over you, and let it go. It’s not a burden so much as a demonstration of how connected you are to the people and things in your own life, and how much you care. That’s a good thing.

1226: The Universe and it’s helpers assist us in many ways. For example, they help to ensure that our basic material needs are being met. While sometimes it may feel like this isn’t the case, in all reality it is. In today’s society people tend to want more than what they really need to live. It’s an ego thing. If you look around you can probably find a surplus of THINGS that you could do without. (I know I can) When the Universe tells us that our needs are being met it refers to basic necessities like money to pay our bills, food, shelter, clothing etc. They are here to assist, not to provide excess. If we aspire to have more then we need to do our part to make it happen. Working with angels, ascended masters etc. is a partnership. Today we are reminded that our needs are being met for ourselves and our loved ones. Take a moment to offer gratitude for life and for what you have!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want. He says ” Expand your mind and you will manifest prosperity and abundance on all levels.”

The Ascended Master Solomon helps us to take what we are given and make the most of it. He teaches us how to do things more efficiently as he guides us through difficult situations. Focus and efficiency help us in our quest for personal evolution and help create the necessary stepping stones we need to move ahead.

The Babylonian goddess Ishtar helps us to navigate times of darkens and change. She shows us how to access our courage. She reminds us ” Times of struggle and darkness can be intimidating. and keep you rooted in fear. Remember to stay clear on what is truly important. This focus will shine like a beacon and hold the darkness at bay.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop.

Use Carnelian for motivation and increased creativity. It teaches us to trust in ourselves and helps us find creative solutions to current issues as it boosts self esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices which enhance our ability to draw new forms of prosperity and abundance.

Iron Pyrite has a 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.

Thought For The Day: Oct. 16, 2020 “Be Somebody”

Happy Friday & New Moon Blessings,

We often hear the phrase ” lifting others up”. Basically it means to offer encouragement to another. It’s not difficult to say ” Good Job!”. You don’t need to know someone or like them to offer an encouraging word to a person who is struggling or trying to do their best. It baffles me when people pick and choose who is “deemed worthy” of encouragement. Ego can be a nasty thing. They need to remember that they too have received “a lift” from someone at some point when they were struggling. Today is a good day to “Be That Somebody!”

Daily Dream Meaning: Paris

The “City of Lights.” If you, in fact, live in Paris, the location of the dream has little meaning, but if you don’t, it’s quite significant.
1. Paris has for two millennia been considered a major center of culture and enlightenment for the entire Western world. To dream of being in Paris, strolling through the Louvre or the Musée d’Orsay or attending the Opéra, therefore, indicates a time of learning, cultural appreciation. Visiting the great Cathedrals such as Nôtre Dame or Sacre Coeur implies spiritual progress.
2. Paris is also considered one of the happiest cities in the world. Dreaming of visiting the clubs or artistes of Montmartre or the Latin Quarter indicates an increased social life and happy times ahead.

Inner Journey:

LOVE YOUR SHADOWS

“There is that part of ourselves that feels ugly, deformed, unacceptable. That part, above all, we must learn to cherish, embrace, and call by name.”
— Macrina Wiederkehr

Each of us has characteristics we define as good and those we define as ‘bad.’ The parts of ourselves that we continually reject want to be acknowledged and loved. Until we honour these aspects, they will continue to assert themselves. They will do whatever they can to get our attention.

What aspects of yourself do you reject?

Take a few moments to open to the parts of yourself that you do not love. See each one honestly for what it is. Explore the wounds and the motives that gave rise to its condition. Love a wounded part of yourself and it will heal.

“…self-contempt never inspires lasting change.”
— Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter

“The first step toward change is acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That’s all you have to do. Change is not something you do, it’s something you allow.”
— Will Garcia

A Note from the Universe

What happens when someone worries?

Basically, they think of 100 reasons why something might go wrong. And all of those thoughts then struggle to become things, sometimes overriding their more constructive thoughts.

That’s the power of worry.

Now, let’s say you want something fantastic to manifest in your life.

Hypothetically, let’s say you want a beautiful vacation home. (I know you.)

Have you closed your eyes yet and imagined 100 reasons why it might come to you easily, fast, and harmoniously?

I think you should.

Today works,

Value
“Labor is the true standard of value.”

-Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

 
How much do we want something? How much is it worth to us? How hard are we willing to work for it? The more thought and effort we put into something, the more the universe picks up on our desire and intention and works with us to turn our dreams into reality. Sitting around and wishing is one thing, but going out and making things happen is something else altogether!

The Ankh

Element: Water and Air

The ankh, also known as the Key of Life, is probably one of the most easily recognizable and best known ancient Egyptian symbols. It represents eternal life and in many ancient carvings Egyptian deities and Pharaoh’s are shown holding it.

While the origins of the Ankh are unclear, archeologists say that in the ancient language the word means quite literally “Life”. One theory as to the symbol itself says that the loop on top represents the womb (feminine) while the cross at the bottom represents the penis (male) and when the two are put together life is formed from it. It is also said to symbolize the elements of both water and air. In pagan tradition’s these elements are considered life-giving.

When the Ankh is used as an amulet it is believed to give the wearer good health and longevity and protection against evil and negative energy.

3. If the eyeglasses are not worn, but lying alone somewhere, then the dreamer needs to view something through different eyes.

Daily Good: Seeking Solitude in Nature: A Meditation Teacher’s Story

“By the time we’re 60, we will have been alive for almost 22,000 days on this planet, rarely, if ever, stopping to watch just one. By immersion into nature in solitude, we allow the natural human to become entrained to the nature of the planet we are part of. I had been camping in solitude in nature — on a hill over the ocean on the coast of California — as I have done twice a year for the past 20+ years. I jokingly call it my “People Fast”, which I have always assumed I needed since, as a meditation teacher and an actress, what I do in the world involves intense and intimate interactions with people, and I figured that we always need an opportunity to “clear out” and refresh or reground ourselves. But there is more to it than that — at least for me.” Meditation teacher Stephanie Nash shares more. { read more }

Inner Journey:

DON’T REJECT THE EGO

“Nourishing the soul is the process of drinking at the life stream, coming back to one’s true self, embracing the whole of one’s experience – good, bad, or ugly; painful or exalted; dull or boring.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn

Spiritual teachings sometimes counsel a need to let go of the ego. In our view, though, ego and personality are essential players in our theatre of life. Personality is the vehicle for Spirit to evolve through form. Soul sparks the potential that exists within the personality.

We don’t want the ego to disappear – we want it to open to divine guidance so the two may work together in alignment.

And so the path of personality aims to build a healthy, skilful ego. Ironically, only a strong, mature ego can take responsibility for carrying the consciousness of soul.

“How do we nurture the soul? By revering our own life. By treating it as supremely important. By reaching for the best within ourselves. By learning to love it all, not only the joys and the victories, but also the pain and the struggles.”
— Nathaniel Branden

SEEK UNION OVER SEPARATION

“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.”
— Paul Ferrini

Our ego focuses on how we are different from the rest of the world. We connect with soul when we experience how we are the same.

Any time you separate yourself from other people or from situations, you know your personality is in control. At such times, shift your perspective to build connection and you will move into soul.

“As a holistic being you shatter the illusion of your separateness and reveal your connection to everything. This empowers you in a way that the ego-driven self could never contemplate.”
— Wayne Dyer

Evolution

“A vital force is active in every individual and leads it towards its own evolution.”

-Maria Montessori (1870-1952)

If our purpose is to learn and to grow, then evolution is inevitable. We are drawn towards that which challenges us, which strengthens us, which supports us in our endeavors – all of life is evolution. We can’t turn it off. We can accelerate the process, by putting ourselves out there and experiencing what life has to offer and by making things happen for ourselves. And we can embrace the process, and enjoy the process, because we know that it just gets more wonderful and exciting and fulfilling as we go along.

It Lies Within” Cat’s Angel Message for January 29, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

It Lies Within” Cat’s Angel Message for January 29, 2020

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


Listen to the compass of your heart. All you need lies within you. – Mary Anne Radmacher


129:  If you are feeling lost or stuck today then Universe is reminding us of the importance of trusting in ourselves and the guidance that we receive from within. Our intuition is a powerful ally. However, we sometimes have the tendency to ignore it in favor of outside influences as well as our own ego getting in the way. Remember that the Universe is always creating something new to take the place of what we have lost. Set ego aside and embrace trust in yourselves and in your own abilities. By learning to trust that inner voice we gain self-confidence, inner peace and the firm foundation we need to step into our own power. As confidence is gained so does the power of our inner wisdom. Use your natural talents and gifts to help create a new self-reliant you. One who has the confidence to sift through the external noise around them and choose the direction best suited for their personal growth.


Our Spiritual Guides for today include: Archangel Zadkiel helps to heal our hearts and minds so that accepting support in all forms is easier. He also promotes compassion for ourselves and others while helping us to find things that we have lost, forgotten about or set aside. Ego is not a friend of truth as it forcibly tells us that we don’t need help and can do everything by ourselves.

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 of 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 Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills so that we get the information we need without the unnecessary backwash. She teaches us how to trust in ourselves and honor our own wisdom. By following our inner guidance system we are setting ourselves on the path of authenticity and personal truth. Allow yourself to be a “huntress” like Artemis and track down your inner power. She tells us, “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 include

Black Banded Agate which helps us start new things, embrace new beginnings and projects. It promotes the creativity needed to make things happen.

Pietersite (Tempest Stone) helps us to work through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens our intuitive connection and creates a link to a loving level of guidance. It also helps us see the truth and strengthen our will while increasing our focus on where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm.
Kyanite is a spiritual stone that helps us to connect to our guides by opening the paths of communication. It also allows us to speak from the heart and to speak our truth as it cuts through the things that are keeping us from moving forward.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
