916: Today’s message is a gentle reminder from Spirit that no matter what we do or where our path leads us that we will be just fine. Our number for today lets us know that the Universe is helping us by lighting our path with a special focus on the areas where we need a little balance. The solutions we need to resolve or make things happen lie within and our “helpers” reveal them to us in a calm and loving way. Don’t allow worry to cloud your judgement or halt your progress. Turn these things over to the Universe and do you best to let them go or put aside that which is out of your control.

97: Yesterday we talked about sending loving, positive vibes out into the world and to the people around us. Today the angels are sending a gentle reminder that we need to remain open to receiving as well as giving …. in other words balance. By only giving we deplete ourselves and by only taking we deplete others. Neither of these are healthy options. However, by balancing the two we find that our energy flows freely and not only benefits us but others as well. It creates a powerful, ever expanding circle of energy that spreads like ripples in a pond. Perform a self check today and make sure your energies are balanced and make any necessary adjustments that are needed. Now…. take a deep breath and shine!

This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow.

Voices and Choices: Cat’s Angel Message for July 23, 2020

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Time and energy are important. You have a voice and you have a choice of how to spend both. ~Cat


723:  Today is a self-care day and the Universe is encouraging us to perform a balance check.

  • Are you taking enough time for yourself or are you giving it all away?
  • Are you achieving a balance between work and your personal life?
  • Are you giving and receiving energy equally? Or tipping the scales?

Taking the time to see where we are mentally, emotionally, physically, and energetically is important. The Ascended Masters are stepping in to give us a hand.  They are reminding us that when we are out of balance it drains our energy which in turn will make us tired, emotional, anxious, depressed, cranky, or even just plain angry. Even if you have no pressing issues today and you feel good remember that their presence and loving energy can refresh and uplift you. Today is also a good time to ground-clear and center. This helps to not only free up our energy but opens us to the supportive energies sent by the universe.

Ground Deep: Cat’s Angel Message for June 15, 2020

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance 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.


Visualize green fields and blue skies. Take a breath. Feel the earth beneath your feet. Take a breath. Ground deep into the earth. Just breathe…. ~Cat


615:  Rising above negative thoughts/feelings and indulging in self-care is on the universal agenda today. There are times when rising above feels like a monumental task. This can be especially true when there are negative things going on around us. When we experience negativity in any form it makes an impression. We get angry, freaky or we absorb it causing a harmful dis-ease that festers inside. Sounds pretty gnarly right? I mean who really wants to go on someone else’s negative roller coaster ride or your own for that matter. This trap is easy to get caught in and we’ve all been there. The angel’s advice is pretty clear on this. “The best thing that you can do for yourself is to acknowledge the situation and surround it with healing energy. Then send it to us to deal with. Surround yourself with positive people and energy. Make your own self-care one of your top priorities. Remember, you cannot be healthy for others if you are not healthy for yourself!”


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

This is a good time to ask Archangel Michael for assistance. When we are bombarded with the energy of others (negative or not) it creates psychic lines and hooks that attach to our energy field and effectively drain our energy. One of my spiritual mentors taught me this simple exercise: “Archangel Michael please cut away all psychic hooks, lines, and cords that have been attached to me by others. Please return these things to the people who sent them, not to do do them harm, simply to return what is theirs.” When I do this I always feel a tingly sensation on my neck/back etc followed by a sense of relief.

 

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.

She asks you today “What are you passionate about and how are you using that energy? be like a cat today and use your energy wisely.

526: Today starts with the question, “What is your heart’s true desire?” The answer to this lies within each of us and it is up to us to find the answer. The angels are asking us to look within and be honest with ourselves about what we truly want. Take a little time today for some soul searching and ask yourself:

*What do I REALLY want from (life, myself, others)?

*Am I REALLY happy, or am I just going through the motions?

*What can I DO to change my situation for the better?

It’s important to be honest with ourselves because too often we spend our time and energy living someone else’s desire. Living your heart’s desire does not make you selfish, uncaring, or a bad person. It does, however, create inner peace, confidence, and a happier and spiritually healthier YOU!

Inner Journey:

THE PAST IN THE PRESENT

“If you accept a limiting belief, then it will become a truth for you.”
— Louise Hay

Pick one aspect of your life, e.g. your health, your competence, your prosperity or relationships, and think back to when you were a child. What messages about this subject did you hear from adults at that time that are still playing on your subconscious tape recorder? Messages like: “Men can’t be trusted.” “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” “You’re not smart enough to succeed in business.”

How is your world reflecting your beliefs back to you, today?

“There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.”
— Seth

Past

“Let the past as nothing be.”

-Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)

There is a wonderful saying that “The past is history, the future is a mystery, but this moment is a gift, and that is why it is called the present.” I don’t know who said that, but I smile every time I hear it. We can’t change the past – it’s water under the bridge, water over the dam, and whatever other old saying you want to apply to it! It doesn’t do us any good to dwell on our past misfortunes or mistakes, or beat ourselves up for our shortcomings. And it doesn’t serve us to live in an idyllic past, wishing for days gone by. We can’t go back. But we can go forward. We can learn from the past and make better choices for ourselves in the present, which will create a more promising future.

Save those creative, foot-loose and fancy-free activities for another day and focus on the nuts and bolts. If you’ve been putting off doing something necessary but not fun, knock it out now and then feel accomplished when finished. You can earn a lot of regard and admiration for this. You won’t be allowed to keep too low a profile, so just step up and do what’s important for today. You should encounter no resistance.

Challenges are called challenges for a reason.
When you’re facing a tough time, it can feel impossible not to get discouraged. Challenges push you in different ways to grow into a better version of yourself, even if that means breaking down before you can get back up.

Daily Good: Creating Welcoming Space

“Hospitality means creating welcoming space for the other. Henri J. Nouwen notes that the Dutch word for hospitality, gastvrijheid, means ‘the freedom of the guest.’ It entails creating not just physical room but emotional spaciousness where the stranger can enter and be himself or herself, where the stranger can become ally instead of threat, friend instead of enemy.” In a time when it is more crucial than ever for humanity to revisit its relationship to strangers, this passage from Sr. Marilyn Lacey shines like a beacon.

MNN: 11 things you didn’t know about opossums
There’s a lot to admire about these quirky critters.

Pity the poor opossum. The oft-maligned marsupial definitely suffers from an image problem — it is frequently perceived more as a giant, dirty, scavenging rat rather than a cute creature of the wild. But whether you love them or hate them, North America’s only marsupial has a set of unique characteristics that might transform aversion into affection.

Wise Woman Herbal: The Rhythms of Life
by Ann Marie Fryer Wiboltt

Today I went for a walk in my garden, which is nestled among the fields and woods with late summer flowers. It was humid and hot. The leaves of the near by maple trees had begun to turn yellow and orange, one by one spiraling to the ground. I felt the warmth of the air touching my skin and the wet, flexible soil below my feet. With my awareness I began to sense life itself. I sensed inwardly how the earth breathes and changes. I entered into the blue of the sky; let it permeate my whole being and felt the reverence that embraces the earth. I was filled with joy and reverence of just being.

EarthSky News: Moon to sweep by Jupiter July 12 to 14

On the evenings of July 12, 13 and 14, 2019, watch for the bright waxing gibbous moon to swing by the giant planet Jupiter. Fortunately, the king planet is so bright that this world can easily withstand the lunar glare. After all, Jupiter is the 4th-brightest light in the heavens, after the sun, moon and planet Venus. Venus is a morning object, virtually lost in the sun’s glare now, so there’s no way to mistake Venus for Jupiter in the July evening sky.

Inner Journey:

A FOCUS ON YOU OR ME?

“Our deepest need is for the joy that comes with loving and being loved, with knowing we are of genuine use to others.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Are you more self-conscious or other-conscious?

Watch your motives for the day. Are they generally about you (your own desires and needs) or are they about others and their needs? There are no right and wrong answers here.

We must guard, though, that we aren’t using service to others as a means to get our own ego needs met. If we are, we would be wise to meet our own needs first so our interactions with others are not primarily self- serving.

“We are able to be of service to those who suffer only to the extent that we have been able to transform fear in our own lives.”
— Robert Sardello

Uncertainty

“The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers.”
-Erich Fromm

I think this is kind of like “necessity is the mother of invention.” What makes us learn and grow and propels us forward is uncertainty. If everything were certain we would get lazy pretty quick- Instead we are constantly challenged to find solutions and better our conditions.
