Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Inner Journey

WE PROJECT OUR STRENGTHS

“Any situation that you find yourself in, is an outward reflection of your inner state of beingness.”
— El Morya

We have discussed that OUR WORLD MIRRORS WHO WE ARE BACK TO US. When we get upset by something outside of us, our reaction shows us that we have an inner wound to be healed.

Just as we can be unconscious of our wounds, we can also be unconscious of our strengths. If you are really drawn to the positive qualities in another person, you are being invited to own those same qualities in yourself.

“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if welook honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.”
— Shakti Gawain

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

Poetry
“Poetry is music written for the human voice.”

-Mrs. Flowers, quoted by Maya Angelou


Just as songs are meant to be sung, poetry is meant to be recited. I love that there are poetry readings going on where we can gather and sit and listen to poetry. And isn’t it so romantic when your sweetheart reads a love poem to you? The words carry us away to a place beyond the mundane, where music plays, and flowers bloom, and all is right with the world.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Fool

You may have the best of intentions today but it won’t be easy to stick to any of them. There’s a lot of randomness in the air and you won’t have very much control over anything. Don’t let this lull you into becoming thoughtless or not caring about what you’re doing. Do what you can and save some energy for tomorrow when things might be smoother.

Daily Good:  The Mindfulness Skill That is Crucial for Stress

Mindfulness is known to have many advantages, including reducing stress, increasing awareness, improving physical health, and more. However, when it comes to lowering stress levels, without also practicing acceptance, we might not see the results we hope for. “Mindfulness practices that specifically emphasize acceptance teach us a nonjudgmental attitude toward our experiences — meaning, learning not to label our thoughts, feelings, or experiences as good or bad, and trying not to change or resist them in any way.” By learning to accept our difficult experiences, we can allow them to run their course and naturally dissipate, this is not the same thing as being passive.

Inner Journey: 

CONNECT WITH THE LIFE FORCE

“The spirit down here in man and the spirit up there in the sun, in reality are only one spirit, and there is no other one.”
— The Upanishads

We regard our lives as made up of an infinite number of separate bits and pieces. That is how our senses perceive our universe.

But science has now affirmed what the sages always knew. The life force is the foundation of all, unseen and untouched though it may be. It flows through everyone and everything. It is impossible to exist separate and apart from the source of all creation.

“Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish; every sweet word will fade, But do not be disheartened, The source they come from is eternal, growing, Branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you And this whole world is springing up from it.”
— Jelaluddin Rumi

Travel

“To me travel is a triple delight: anticipation, performance, and recollection.”

-Ilka Chase, 1961

Travel is something that sticks with us. We look forward to, and plan the trip, learning about where we’re going and how to get there. And then just being there – soaking up all there is in unfamiliar surroundings, exploring new territory. It excites our senses! And most importantly, there are the memories we bring home with us, which we can revisit at any time.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Emperor

Kindness will take you very far today. It’s not a show of weakness or inferiority to engage in that random act of kindness. Think of it as acting out of generosity of spirit. The bigger your heart today, the more respect and cooperation will come your way. Make sure your kindness is genuine and from a genuine place. Then you’re virtually unassailable.

Clearing The Way: Cat’s Angel Message for December 4, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

Making Room: Cat’s Angel Message for December 3, 2018

 

Clearing The Way: Cat’s Angel Message for December 4, 2018 

December’s Theme: Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life. Taking action will aid in manifestation.


Before moving on, you have to clear away your cherished beliefs. – Dick Raymond


124:  Yesterday we began the process of making room. Remember, the key is to clear away what you no longer need in order to make room for new growth and blessings. (ventures, projects, relationships, opportunities etc.) Keep this month’s theme in mind and pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas as they will show you the way to success. It will also clarify the areas that need your immediate attention. Have faith in yourself and listen to your inner guidance as well. You know what’s best for you and only you can set those wheels in motion. Today the Universe is sending us a gentle reminder. If we need new ideas, a boost of courage or help finding our way, we just need to ask!


Archangel Michael helps us to find courage and points us in the right direction, while keeping us safe and protected. The Egyptian god Horus teaches us the value of standing our ground when we start clearing the way for new things. he also blesses us with clear insight so that the decisions we make are the best possible ones and the Ascended Master Solomon shows us how to be more efficient so that we make the most of our time.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Angelite and Moldavite which will assist with direct communication with Angels and Ascended Master’s and Aquamarine which promotes courage and quiets the mind to allow guidance to come to us.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Just Do Your Best: Cat’s Angel Message for September 17, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Just Do Your Best: Cat’s Angel Message for September 17, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


Simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret. – don Miguel Ruiz


917: Today is about affirmations. While I’m not a fan of the whole affirmation thing, I AM a fan of “self lifting” phrases like “I CAN” and “I AM”. These phrases are some of the best words of encouragement you can gift to yourself. They ignite our courage, and determination which is essential to making forward progress in our lives. They can also help us in regards to our life purpose. Remember, your life purpose revolves around things you love or feel strongly about. The spark you create with self lifting thinking helps to promote a successful attitude and helps us to move forward on our path. You are capable of manifesting great and wonderful things and it’s a good time to embrace your power and see where it leads you!


The Egyptian god Horus can help open our minds eye and heals the fear we may have about trusting in ourselves and our own wisdom. The Ascended Masters Jesus and Moses are both adept at helping us to access Divine Guidance and Archangel Michael helps us to see our own worth and provides courage and confidence.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Lapis Lazuli. This deep blue stone helps to open the Third Eye Chakra (mind’s eye) and stimulates our personal power. It also harmonizes our energies on all levels as this balance and strengthens our knowledge of self.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Finding Yourself Along the Way: Cat’s Angel Message for July 7, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Finding Yourself Along the Way: Cat’s Angel Message for July 7, 2018 

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


Find your balance and stand with it. Find your song and sing it out. Find your cadence and let it appear like a dance. Find the questions that only you know how to ask and The answers that you are content to not know. – Mary Anne Radmacher


77:  We know from past readings that our path is unique. We also know that  we are the only ones who know the scope of our dreams and what we need to be fulfilled. Today, the angels are giving us a little advice. “Stand your ground where your path is concerned.” There will always be people, including loved ones, who will try to push you in a different direction. This can happen for various reasons like fear, greed, or simply because they think they know what’s best for you. If you know with every fiber of your being that your path doesn’t go that direction bless the situation with love and keep moving forward. The key is to honor their concern for you, by sifting through the information, consider what has merit and file away or discard the rest.


Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make the life changes we need to walk our path with confidence and Archangel Raguel also helps us in resolving arguments while promoting harmony between you and other party’s involved.The Egyptian god Horus helps us to see people in any given situation through the eyes of love. He teaches us to stand our ground and promotes the  courage and strength needed to walk our own path.


Our Sacred Stone for the day is Howlite. This stone helps us to formulate a plan to achieve our ambitions and goals while communicating these things in a  calm and reasonable manner.

Harnessing the Solstice Energy: Cat’s Angel Message for June 21, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Harnessing the Solstice Energy: Cat’s Angel Message for June 21, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. Gary Zukov


621: Today is the Summer Solstice (aka Litha or Midsummer) which makes today the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. This Solstice packs some pretty powerful energy and by  tapping into this power source we can boost our own powers of manifestation. The key is to believe in yourself as well as the creator. The stronger our belief is the more we are able to clearly see the blessings and miracles around us. Even the small everyday ones become clearer, which are more important by far. The ancient Romans honored the goddess Fortuna on this day and this is a good time to acknowledge the blessings you have as well as the ones that are coming.


Today try working with the deities associated with the sun and the Summer Solstice like Sulis Minerva, Apollo, Horus, Athena, Kali and Isis. The ancient Romans also honored the goddess Fortuna on this day and it’s a great time to acknowledge your blessings as well as your power as a creator.


Sacred Stones for the Summer Solstice include:

Amber to enhance your earth connection and to promote grounding. It is also a great healing stone (it’s actually tree resin) that helps to remove energetic impurities from the body.

Jade helps us to understand that you are spiritual being on the very human journey we call life. it stimulates knowledge and ideas.

Sunstone has a strong connection  to light and helps to harness the re energizing power of the sun during meditation and everyday life. It is linked to all benevolent deities and brings good fortune and luck.

Tiger’s Eye works with the energies of both earth and sun, it also helps with grounding while drawing spiritual energies to earth.

The Rhythm of Living: Cat’s Angel Message for May 2, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

The Rhythm of Living: Cat’s Angel Message for May 2, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change – this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress. – Bruce Barton


52:  Change is constant. It happens everywhere, to everyone, everyday. Sometimes it’s a gradual process that sneaks up on us and at other times is quite abrupt and can be a real wake up call. Either way change is a necessary thing that helps us to evolve and grow. The thing to remember is that change is part of the letting go process. By learning to let go of people, things and situations that no longer bring us joy we make room something better. ( new people, personal insights and new opportunities) Today the universe is asking us to release our fears and embrace change as an adventure. Don’t force or struggle, it’s time to go with the flow and let the “universal tide”  carry you forward!


Our helpers for today include the Egyptian God Horus, who helps us to see situations past and present more clearly and to see the truth, which helps us to see the changes we need to make and the Egyptian Goddess Maat who provides truth and clarification when we are confronted with confusing situations and or the motives of others.  Her wisdom shows us the path to the changes we need to create to move forward. Archangel Michael helps us to move forward and stop procrastinating when we know what we need to do but keep putting it off. Gain additional help with these Sacred Stones.


Our Sacred Stones today are: Crocoite helps to ease the way when big shifts take place in our lives. Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change and  Malachite which is for more aggressive changes. It brings a sense of adventure and transformation as it shows us what is blocking our spiritual growth.
