Spirit Library: Freedom

Blessed Being, your Freedom is a resonance that is attained and contained within. The paradox of containment and Freedom is the connection of the opposites that occurs within you. In the physical realm of limitation, you are provided a structure of experience and discovery that uncovers a hidden truth that resides within you

The White Goddess: Ostara – Spring Equinox

Ostara: Spring Equinox (Ostara) – March 21st/22nd
Incense: Jasmine, Rose
Decorations: Yellow Disk or Wheel, Coloured Egg’s, Hare Decorations, Spring Flowers
Colours: Yellow
This marks the Spring Equinox. This is the Pagan “Easter” – or rather, this is the day that Christians borrowed to be their Easter. It is traditionally the day of equilibrium, neither harsh winter or the merciless summer, and is a time of childish wonder. Painted eggs, baskets of flowers and the like are generally used to decorate the house.

EarthSky News: Moon, Castor, Pollux, Procyon March 15 and 16

As darkness falls on March 15 and 16, 2019, let the waxing gibbous moon show you three bright stars. Look for the constellation Gemini’s two brightest stars, Castor and Pollux, to the north of the moon. They’re sometimes called the Gemini twins, even though they don’t look alike. Then look to the south of the moon for the bright star Procyon, also known as the Little Dog Star because it’s the brightest light in the constellation Canis Minor the Lesser Dog

Patheos-Pagan: The Seeds of Ostara – Divination and Manifestation

The Vernal Equinox, Ostara in the Pagan calendar, is just around the corner and this year is packing quite an astrological wallop. On Wednesday, March 20th, day and night will be equal lengths. As the sun shifts into the fiery sign of Aries, a full moon will also shine and enter the astrological sign of Libra shortly before the moon reaches peak brightness

Inner Journey: 

WHAT HEALS?

“Paradoxically, a group of humans becomes healing and converting only after its members have learned to stop trying to heal and convert. Community is a safe place precisely because no one is attempting to heal or convert you, to fix you, to change you. Instead, the members accept you as you are. You are free to be you. And being so free, you are free to discard defenses, masks, disguises; free to seek your own psychological and spiritual health; free to become your whole and holy self.”
— Scott Peck

A Note from the Universe 

OK go ahead and think of the one “thing” that still bugs you. You know, that one issue, challenge, or person who… arghhh, if only the load of it would lighten.

Come on, now. This won’t work if you don’t think of something.

Then repeat after me: “This is better than winning the lottery! What a gift! Because as I use it to understand why it affects me as it does, even though I remain literally cloaked in miracles, powerful beyond measure, and utterly free in this very moment to think and feel and manifest without limit, such new insights, perhaps more than any others I’ve gleaned from my entire life, will make me happier, healthier, and wealthier than I even knew I could hope to be. All because of this gift! Hallelujah! Lucky me! I’ll miss it when it’s gone… sort of.”
You really will –

Energy
“Energy is the power that drives every human being. It is not lost by exertion but maintained by it, for it is a faculty of the psyche.”

-Germaine Greer (1973)

Sometimes when we’re feeling down or tired, the best thing to pick us up is a brisk walk! A little exertion of energy gets the juices flowing – then we can think more clearly and make better decisions for ourselves. We need to strive for a balance between quiet and activity. Too much of either one gets us out of kilter.

-Lissa Coffey

Beliefnet: Colors That Will Cheer You Up

Alternative therapy can offer a breakthrough for people struggling depression. There is art therapy, animal therapy and storytelling therapy. There is an arm of therapy that is used to help people with depression that is often not talked about or perhaps never heard of–it’s called color psychology. Color psychology is the study of different hues and its impact on human behavior. Over the years, people are paying closer attention to how color can influence their mood.

Elephant Journal: The Power of Female Friendships: how we can Support Instead of Tear each other Down

Eight of us go down to the beach, blankets and yoga mats in hand.
We cross under street lamps and a bridge occupied by a dozen tabby cats.
Arriving to a foggy pier, we lay out our mats in a circle. We adorn the center with tea lights, sage, a tarot deck, and crystals. Fifty feet away from our circle, a green light illuminates the area. The largest full moon of the year is somewhere in these clouds, but for now we only have this blinking green light at the end of the pier.

EarthSky News: Moon passes Mars, Pleaides, Aldebaran March 10-12

On March 10, 11 and 12, 2019, watch for the waxing crescent moon sweeping to the south of the red planet Mars, and then on to encounter a red star, Aldebaran, and the famous Pleiades star cluster.
On the evening of March 10, as seen from around the world, the moon will be shining beneath Mars in the west after sunset. One day later – March 11 – the moon will have moved in its orbit; notice it’s closer to Mars. Then the moon moves on in orbit around Earth. By March 12, it is near the Pleiades and Aldebaran, both of which are important sky signposts in the constellation Taurus the Bull.

Inner Journey:

KNOW YOURSELF

“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.”
— Abraham H. Maslow

STOP AND PAY ATTENTION! Set an intention to be more aware. Become a watcher, of yourself and what’s around you. Develop the witness, the part of you that can step back from life and impartially observe how you react and think and feel. We learn so much about who we are!

“Knowing others is wisdom; knowing the self is enlightenment.”
— Tao Te Ching

“The true profession of man is to find his way to himself.”
— Hermann Hesse

Energy

“Energy is Eternal Delight.”

-William Blake (1757-1827)
Think about the energy of the sun. It provides light and heat and even solar power. It is there for us all day; we can count on it. And through the great organizational power of the universe, night falls. Day and night. Activity and silence. There is a lesson for us here. Delight in the differences. Energy gained through silence can be joyful, fruitful, and enriching.

Seeds of Solutions: Cat’s Angel Message for January 22, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

Seeds of Solutions: Cat’s Angel Message for January 22, 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.


Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don’t have any problems, you don’t get any seeds. – Norman Vincent Peale


122:  Within each of us lives the power of manifestation. To successfully bring our dreams and goals to life Spirit has given us the sacred tools of thought, faith and action. By using these gifts correctly and sending out positive intentions we activate our power as a creator. The goal is to plant your thought seeds (intentions) and nurture them to maturity through faith and action. Today our angels are asking us to acknowledge and honor the gifts that we’ve been given. If they are a little dusty clean them off and set them to work. Stay focused on your goals and stay present as this will help you to experience new perspectives and pathways. Remember to assist others as doors open for you because it keeps the energy flowing and creates even more opportunity.


Try working with Archangel Uriel today to resolve any problems that may come up. Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps us to take hold of our power and bring it forward and into focus while the fiery energy of the Hawaiian goddess Pele shows us the way to personal empowerment. Pele also teaches us how to set realistic goals and how to make them happen. “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Larimar, which helps to remove self imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self sabotaging behavior and brings out the best in us. This calm stone also promotes clarity and teaches us the going with the flow is okay and  Chrysocolla draws off negative energy as it helps to cleanse and energize the chakras. It enhances our personal power, promotes good communication and inner strength.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

 daily Angel Message sms

Use What You Have: Cat’s Angel Message for August 23, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade? – Benjamin Franklin


823: Today we are being asked to review our natural talents. These skills can become lost in the shuffle when dealing with life. However, by  putting them to use it jump starts our energy flow. Which in turn creates opportunities and synchronicities that help us to create and manifest long term benefits. Using our natural talents also strengthens our connection to our personal truth and the values that are important to us. They also boost our creative thinking and problem solving skills and intuitive abilities. Be sure to pay attention and explore new directions. Natural talents also make us feel good about ourselves and can bring happiness into our everyday lives through gratitude and mindfulness. If you need help or guidance from the Universe just ask and above all ,remember to believe in yourself!


Archangel Chamuel helps us to find things that are lost or hidden. He can help you to put your skills and talents to their best uses. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And the Greek Goddess Artemis 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 Stone for today is Garnet. While this stone is best known as one of protection it can benefit the use of our natural talents as well. It helps us to overcome any resistance we may have in using our gifts and promotes self confidence. Garnet removes what no longer serves and mental self sabotage. It promotes balance and clears and re-energizes the chakras.
