Elephant Journal: This is Self-Love. This is Self-Care. This is being your own Best Friend.

So often in my life I have heard people say, “We all need to love ourselves,” or “You don’t love yourself enough.”
My first reaction to this used to be, “What the bleep are they talking about?”
A couple of times I even sat down and tried it. I sat in a quiet place and thought, “Okay, love yourself.” Nothing happened. I concluded that loving yourself was some kind of woo-woo nonsense.

Beginnings & Endings

“‘Begin at the beginning.’ the King said, gravely, ‘and go till you come to the end; then stop.'”

-Lewis Carroll (1832 – 1898) Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, 1865

Just where is this “beginning?” It’s an arbitrary thing. There is no real beginning, and there is no real end. Remember when it was New Year’s 2000 and the big argument was whether the New Millennium started on January 1, 2000 or January 1, 2001? And there was this huge concern about Y2K? It all seems so silly now. Each day is another day. We can choose when our beginnings are. We can begin right here, right now, right where we are. Or we can wait until tomorrow! It’s our choice, not the calendar’s o

New Paths: Cat’s Angel Message for January 19, 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.


We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. – Walt Disney


119: Our lives are made up of endings and beginnings. At the start of the new year (and a new decade!) we are offered the chance at both. End what doesn’t work or feel right and replace these things by beginning something new. There is an old saying that goes “When one door closes another one opens.” and the Universe is asking us to take that phrase and our “January Theme” to heart today. By holding optimistic light for ourselves and meeting the day with a sense of adventure we can navigate these revolving cycles with ease. Each new cycle brings opportunities and blessings that help us to lead better and more fulfilling lives. Allow new doors to open and don’t let small setbacks or obstacles to stop your momentum.  Start with baby steps and acknowledge the tiny miracles with a grateful heart and don’t forget to shed goodwill on those around you. These things will make everyday a victory!


Our Spiritual Guides today include: The Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

The Ascended Master Vywamus helps all Lightworkers. He teaches us that change can be an opportunity to heal. He encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. If something is holding you back let it go and continue forward.

The Greek goddess Nike, Lady of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things that we have accomplished. By acknowledging them we can increase our faith in ourselves as a creator. She says: “Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

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 the truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself by boosting our confidence and self-esteem

Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change as it helps to sharpen the mind and enhance our self-confidence. Peridot can also teach us how to look back at the past and find the gifts that are hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.

Moonstone, the stone of new beginnings. This beautiful, watery stone helps to navigate the cycles of change and calms our emotions. Gently encouraging creative thinking and creative problem solving as it brings our intuitive skills forward, promoting control and confidence so these skills become more familiar and easier to access. It also provides emotional healing by helping to stabilize the emotions and draw out old emotional patterns.

Thought For The Day: Oct. 9, 2019 “Beginnings & Endings”

Happy Wednesday,

In order to acquire new blessings, we must often let something go. We can always tell when something is coming to an end.  However, we tend to hang on rather than let go. There can be many reasons for this but the main one is usually fear. Fear of being hurt, or hurting someone else.The fear that we are not good enough or strong enough to get through it on our own. But you are! New Beginnings are the children of Endings and Change. Welcome them and welcome the bittersweet feelings that herald the arrival of something amazing!

The Sacred Gift: Cat’s Angel Message for January 29, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. – Albert Einstein


129: If you are feeling lost or stuck today then Universe is reminding us of the importance of trusting in ourselves  and the 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 creating something new and positive to to take the place of what we have lost. set ego aside and embrace trust in ourselves and in our 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.


Archangel Zadkiel teaches us that true compassion and healing lies in our ability to to forgive ourselves and others. This is essential when dealing with the ego and the endings of cycles, relationships and situations. The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara teaches us how to put our ego in the back seat so that the inner wisdom we receive comes through clearly. And the Greek goddess Artemis can assist us in learning to access and trust our intuition. She is particularly helpful to women who seek to seek to embrace their feminine power. She reminds us  that “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 Pietersite (The Tempest Stone). Use this stone to help access our intuition and create a link to a loving level of guidance. It helps to strengthen the will and increases our focus of where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm and Magnetite which promotes trust in ourselves and in our own inner wisdom.

Celebrate endings – for they precede new beginnings. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


119: When we enter into a new year we experience both endings and beginnings. Our lives are made up of  these cycles as well. There is an old saying the “When one door closes another one opens.” The Universe is asking us to take that to heart today. By maintaining an optimistic outlook and our sense of adventure  we can navigate these revolving cycles with ease.

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.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Sodalite. This stone unifies intuition and logic as it brings information from our higher self to the physical level. It teaches us how to remain true to yourself and stand up for the things you believe in.
