Today’s Message: Making Great Things Happen

114: Today the Universe is extending an invitation to work together and create the foundations that will support our goals and dreams. The keyword for today is “Baby Steps” which are necessary for any endeavor. They require us to use both caution and wisdom as we create the life we want so don’t be a slacker and cut corners. Take ALL the steps. The new year provides us with opportunities for change and growth and projects started now will bring blessings and benefits to enrich our lives. Start the day with a “can-do” optimistic attitude to jump-start long-term success. Your angels are always here to assist you so be a visionary today and see yourself and others in the best light and find the very best in every situation…. let’s make some great things happen!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Gabriel helps us to access our inner wisdom and shows us how it can guide and inspire us. Gabriel also teaches us the importance of communication on all levels. This helps us to overcome our fears so that we can complete the things we start and achieve positive results during times of transformation and change. 

The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps keep our energy balanced and flowing. This is essential for using our gifts and understanding the information we receive. He can also help to diffuse unpleasant situations that can arise as we go through change and transformation. Since he helps us heal through color, pay attention to the colors that draw us or feel relevant  

 The Egyptian goddess Isis reminds us that growth requires patience and that change and growth are an ongoing part of life. “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inner journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 Azurite increases our ability to receive spiritual guidance and helps us to see through illusions and clears the mind 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.

Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self-defeating thinking. It also helps to balance our emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential. It helps to dissolve problems and insecurities that can arise when we are faced with new opportunities.

 Eulite (Hypersthene) helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships which are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Today’s Message: No Shortcuts

18: A new year means new beginnings filled with new hopes and dreams. But new things can sit in the wings if you haven’t completed the necessary work needed to move forward. Today we are being reminded to take ALL the steps and avoid shortcuts. Creating, generating new blessings is the goal. The Universe is telling us that it’s our time to shine and that it’s time to get moving….. NOW. Finish up old business to make room for new opportunities. Allow your inner wisdom to guide you. Remember that you already know what you need to let go of so find your strength and courage to do the work to make it happen. Free yourself and your energy to become the amazing creator that you are meant to be!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raguel sets us on the path to personal empowerment. He helps us to find our strength and promotes clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to our thoughts. He empowers the underdog and also acts as a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves and can help us to reach our full potential.

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 Egyptian goddess Isis reminds us that growth requires patience and that change and growth are an ongoing part of life. “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inner journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Black Banded Agate helps us start new things, embrace new beginnings and projects. It promotes the creativity needed to make things happen. The patterns in this stone invite inspiration and creative flow!

Citrine. This happy and sunny crystal draws abundance and brings our self-confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action. We can also use Citrine to help us sift through information and analyze situations so that we can move forward with positive intent. Citrine also helps us go with the flow and encourages us to explore all options so that we can make the best decisions for our journey.

Desert Rose (Selenite). These beautiful stone “flowers” help to increase our understanding of our own personal value in the universal plan. It dissolves outdated self-imposed programming and helps us to replace it with new ideas and self-perspective.

Inner Journey:

GETTING DOWN TO ESSENTIALS

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”
— Lin Yutang

Do you feel a desire to simplify your life?

If you say ‘yes,’ then set an intention to reduce the demands, stimuli, interruptions and busyness in your life. We each have the power to do this – we simply have to begin to say ‘no’ to those activities that don’t directly serve what we want for our lives.

Everyone of this planet deserves to have some free time to think, relax and have fun. If you long for this, begin now to clear your plate and allow a new level of experience to happen in your life. Take charge. Eliminate time wasters. Make some decisions about what matters to you.

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”
— Hans Hofmann

Creation
“Musical comedies aren’t written, they are re-written.”

-Stephen Sondheim


Many creative endeavors take sweat. It’s a lot of work to get them to the point where we really feel that they are as good as they can be, the best that we can make them. The joy is in the process of creating. And when we feel we have reached completion, and created something that we can be proud of, the feeling is amazing.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

If you’re hesitant to do something or to make a decision, that’s OK. What urgently needs to be done will be done, so don’t worry about it. There may simply be too many options and too many conflicting requests coming up all at the same time. Sometimes hesitation can be a sign of prudence and a refreshing change from impulsiveness.

Let Information Come To You: Cat’s Angel Message for October 1, 2021

Let Information Come To You: Cat’s Angel Message for October 1, 2021

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

____________________________

Communication opens the doors to new experiences which assist us on our path. ~Cat

_____________________________

Today’s Message: Let Information Come To You

101: As we start the new month take some time to clear and center yourself as we will be focusing on the receiving of divine inspiration and information. Divine guidance comes from many sources ( Goddess/Sacred Feminine, God, Angels or Ascended Masters.), and comes in many forms that you see, hear, feel or even touch. Our creative energy will also play a big part in what we do this month. The Universe is not only powerful but creative as well so be ready for new and inspiring thoughts and ideas to help you along your path. Remember, don’t try and force things to happen because the best creative things happen naturally. Hold peaceful thoughts for yourself and others and allow creative solutions and ideas to help you today!

 As you clear and center connect to your image of the Divine Source. Extend gratitude for what you have and the good things coming your way. Ask for what you need today. (peace, healing, energy, protection, etc.) Commit yourself to being open to receiving and allow yourself to see the world with fresh eyes.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Uriel teaches us how to access our creative database. He reminds us that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to use a non-conventional approach. He gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations.

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

The Egyptian goddess Isis reminds us that growth requires patience and that change and growth are an ongoing part of life. “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inner journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Azurite-Malachite. This combination of deep blue and green works with the Third Eye and Heart Chakras, which are essential to receiving divine guidance. It also promotes our individuality and the ability to be flexible in our thinking.

Beryl teaches us how to fulfill our true potential. It helps us to see both sides of a situation, opportunity or problem and promotes strategic planning so that we can use it to our best advantage.

Yellow Jasper helps to provide clarity on both mental and emotional levels. It starts us off in a positive direction while helping us to find realistic and workable solutions that help us to attain our goals

Today’s Message: Incoming Messages

720: Navigating our path requires generous amounts of courage, confidence, and a few pinches of faith. We must also have an open heart and an open mind to receive the messages and guidance that is given to us. The key is to remember that messengers and messages come in all forms. (nature, music, animals, children, physical objects, etc.) We can see them, dream them, hear them, and even feel them. Today the Universe is telling us that important information is on the way and that we need to stay open and in the present. Don’t allow fear to overrule your judgment because you are always safe and cared for. Keep to your path and absorb the information as you travel. You just never know what may produce a valuable AHA! moment.

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 Melchizedek helps keep our energy balanced and flowing. This is essential for using our gifts and understanding the information we receive. He sends us information through color so pay attention to the ones that draw you or feel relevant.

The Egyptian goddess Isis reminds us that growth requires patience and that change and growth are an ongoing part of life. “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inner journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Amazonite. This stone is sometimes called the stone of hope. It helps us to speak our truth with confidence and instills us with hope itself. It calms and soothes frayed nerves during times of stress and helps us to feel and embrace universal love. It works with both heart and throat chakras.

Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it helps dispel fixed ideas and thoughts and brings the rational thinking forward so that new information is easily accepted. It is a protective stone that draws away negative energy and stress. It cleans and re-energizes the aura and promotes overall harmony and order.

Sodalite is a stone for the mind, it promotes clear and calm thinking. and activates intuition as it draws down information to the physical level. It dispels confusion and releases outdated thought patterns while creating space for new ideas. It also helps us to look for and find truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself by boosting our confidence and self esteem.

Inner Journey:

REVIEW AND RECOMMIT

“Few people have any next, they live from hand to mouth without a plan, and are always at the end of their line.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Just think: When we are driving, we know where we want to go and we plot out our route. When we plan and prepare a meal, we follow a recipe and monitor the food as it cooks.

How much attention do we give to planning the direction of our lives?

Taking the time to review our quality of life gives us a chance to re-evaluate what we are doing and where we want to go. It lets us fine-tune our direction, to ensure we are on track for what we most want.

Stop and think about your last 6 months. What did you learn? What would you like to do differently? Where do you want to recommit?

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.”
— A. A. Milne

“Always have a plan, and believe in it. Nothing happens by accident.”
— Chuck Knox

Excellence
“When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.”

-Helen Keller (1914)


Excellence is difficult to measure. In the Olympics there is a judging system of points and scores to compare the athlete’s performances. But when it comes to our day to day lives, excellence for each one of us is doing the best that we can do. We know when we’re slacking off. We know when we can do better. We’re the only ones who can make that judgment accurately. And when we do strive for excellence, when we put ourselves out there and really give it our all, we know it, we can feel it.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: Justice

A past wrong against you might be set right today. It’s important that you give others a fair chance and don’t automatically discount what they have to say or offer. You don’t need to satisfy everyone but you do need to make the effort to let them have their say and their moment to contribute. Be confident and don’t feel threatened by anything.

Inner Peace: Cat’s Angel Message for April 16, 2021

Inner Peace: Cat’s Angel Message for April 16, 2021

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

____________________________

Embrace what brings you inner peace. They are found in the tiny miracles that make up our lives. ~Cat

_____________________________

416: Today the angels are encouraging you to embrace feelings of hopeful optimism. Affirm that you are safe and let the Universe and your helpers clear away any anxiety and fear that you may be feeling now. Replace these things with a renewed focus centered around the things that you can control and the things that bring peace into your personal environment. This is the time to pay attention and acknowledge all the gifts and blessings that you receive and currently have, even the “Tiny Miracles” count. The effort that you apply today will generate long term benefits for you and those you love. Meet today with a grateful heart!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

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 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 Egyptian goddess Isis reminds us that growth requires patience and that change and growth are an ongoing part of life. “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inner journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Larimar helps to remove self-imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self-sabotaging behavior by bringing out the best in us. It helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

Tiger’s Eye (Gold) helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions. It is a stone of luck and prosperity and works with the energies of both earth and sun, it also helps with grounding while drawing spiritual energies to earth.

Zincite helps to remove energy blocks which gets our life force flowing, which aids our manifestation process. It also restores our energy when it becomes depleted by giving away too much of ourselves to others.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Daily Good: 9 Rules for the Woke Birdwatcher

In overlooking, denying, evading this complexity–which is nothing more than the disquieting complexity of ourselves–we are diminished and we perish; only within this web of ambiguity, paradox, this hunger, danger, darkness, can we find at once ourselves and the power that will free us from ourselves.

  • James Baldwin –

9 Rules for the Woke Birdwatcher

“1.Lower your binoculars. See bird and person in the full context of their being, feathers or skin. We all share the same air, same water, same earth, and same fate in the end. Don’t just list and be done.” Author J. Drew Lanham shares eight other rules/invitations in this short and powerful piece. { read more }

Inner Journey: WHAT IS YOUR BODY TELLING YOU?

“There are times when we may fool ourselves. There are times when we can fool others. But we can never fool our body. It is the most sensitive barometer of our inner world.”
— Sherrill Sellman

“Instead of frittering away your vibrancy with worry or distraction, realize your mind and body are inextricably united. What calms and tones up one, soothes and improves the other.”
— Marsha Sinetar

“When you are saying that you are happy and you are not, there will be a disturbance in your breathing. Your breathing cannot be natural. It is impossible.”
— Osho

“Your body is the ground and metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence. It is your Bible, your encyclopedia, your life story. Everything that happens to you is stored and reflected in your body. In the marriage of flesh and spirit divorce is impossible.”
— Gabrielle Roth

“If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?”

A Note from the Universe

Changing one’s life is easy, and there are lots of ways to go about it, though all exact some sort of price:

Pinpointing invisible, limiting, self-sabotaging beliefs — Extremely demanding on brain cells and much easier to do if you have a friend who channels the dead, but either way, it’ll keep you busy for the rest of your life.

Discovering what occurrences in the past have misprogrammed you — A therapist can help, though expensive if you don’t have insurance, but you can both pretend you’re a complex person and that if it wasn’t for your childhood, you’d have the perfect life.

Distinguishing between those who really love you and those who just wish to use you — Super tricky, and may destroy perfectly good relationships, but with a good a lawyer you can laugh all the way to the bank while accepting little or no responsibility for your own happiness.

These are just a few of the most popular and widely written-about methods. Of course, you could also just begin imagining and moving toward the life of your dreams, treating everyone with kindness, and assuming all is well — profoundly and radically effective for both short and long-term gains, but totally lacking in drama, requires solo efforts, and is much too easy for most people to take seriously.

Oh well,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom

Self-Determination


“We are not born all at once, but by bits. The body first, and the spirit later; and the birth and growth of the spirit, in those who are attentive to their own inner life, are slow and exceedingly painful. Our mothers are racked with the pains of our physical birth; we ourselves suffer the longer pains of our spiritual growth.”

-Mary Antin, 1912


The birth analogy is used often in describing spiritual awakening. I read recently a zen saying that explained that we are actually born twice. Once as an egg out of our mothers. And then again as we break out of our shells we birth ourselves into awakening. Think of what it takes for a bird to break out of its shell. It’s hard work, but the bird has to do it all by itself in order to be strong enough to survive in the world. Sometimes our spiritual growth is hard work, and painful. But when we break through we can spread our wings and fly

Daily Tarot: Death

There’s a sense of security in what is old, and with something new coming into your life it’s natural to be a bit afraid. Give this new situation a chance and give yourself time to get comfortable with the new conditions. It could be as simple as getting your hair cut or changing your glasses frames, but it could be much bigger than that
