Tough Questions: Cat’s Angel Message for September 5, 2020

September’s Theme: “What Do I Want?” This is a question that we often ask ourselves. So as we head into Autumn and the time of introspection ask yourself that very question.

95: “What do I want” and “What is my purpose” are tough questions that we ask ourselves. Even if we don’t know what our “purpose “is the clues that provide that answer are there. Many of the clues we need can be found in the changes that either just show up or that we initiate for ourselves. Many of these changes happen through the clearing process of letting go of outdated thoughts, feelings, people and things. Letting go tells the Universe that we are ready to move forward and continue our growth cycle. Remember that without change we don’t grow and it is through growth that our Life Purpose comes into focus. Today the angels are telling us that the time has come to embrace the changes that we have been working on or putting off. It is it time to step up and start creating the life you want and acknowledging what really fills your spirit to the fullest!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us to recover things we have lost. while he usually works with lost items he can also help when we feel out of balance by showing us the reason behind it. He also assists us as we navigate our path by helping us to find the direction and guidance that needed to move forward on this journey of self discovery. If you feel like you have wandered off your path and are having trouble finding your way back he can help you get your bearings.

The Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back he can teach you how to let it go or let it be so you can continue moving forward.

The Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”

Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Agate. This humble stone is the perfect one for grounding and balancing our energies. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to make the most of our life experiences.

Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem solving process. It enables us to release things that are no longer relevant to our current path and dispels any guilt we may have when we leave things behind. It helps us to make the necessary changes and brings harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.

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.

5 Ways to Chill Out

I thought it was hot the other day at my home in midcity Los Angeles, with a reading of 105 degrees. Ha, chimed in my friends, who not far from me noted 114 and 113 degrees respectively. In Van Nuys, it officially hit 117. No matter where you live, though, climate change is creating hotter temperatures than ever and the need to cool down in summer is becoming urgent. Let’s look at five completely natural ways to keep your cool.

MBG: ‘Finding Your Purpose’ Could Be Taking Away From Your Happiness. Here’s What To Do About It

Many books have been written on the topic of purpose, and people talk about “finding your purpose” all the time. But what is purpose, and how does one find it? While the discussions may vary a bit, most contain a common theme: that finding and fulfilling your purpose is the most important thing you can do with your life, and life isn’t meaningful unless you do.

Daily Good: Counter Mapping

The use of maps on our phones and on paper, show border lines and roads that don’t tell the deeper story of the land we live and travel on. Deep within the land are stories of ourselves and our ancestors that can enrich life as we rarely know it. Jim Enote is one such man who knows the soul stories that the land can hold. Jim is a traditional Zuni farmer and director of the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center in New Mexico, USA. He is working with Zuni artists to create maps that bring an indigenous voice and perspective back to the land, countering Western notions of place and geography and challenging the arbitrary borders imposed on the Zuni world

MNN: Marine robot hunts starfish to save coral reefs

Can a killer robot destroy crown-of-thorns starfish that are plaguing the Great Barrier Reef?

Why target these poor, innocent starfish? Well, the truth is that they aren’t so innocent. When crown-of-thorns starfish population densities are under control, these beautiful creatures play a balanced role in the ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef. But when………..

Patheos-Pagan: What is Witchcraft Now?

The question ‘what is witchcraft’ was raised recently and in the context of ‘what is witchcraft modern NOW‘?
When I first started my journey into all things witchy (about a gazillion years ago) there weren’t many study/learning options available to me. I like a structure to learning and the only thing around when I started was Wicca, which suited me at the time.

Inner Journey: 

MAKE TIME TO PLAY

“If we fail to nourish our souls, they wither, and without soul, life ceases to have meaning…. The creative process shrivels in the absence of continual dialogue with the soul. And creativity is what makes life worth living.”
— Marion Woodman

Stress, fear, negativity, too much to do and doing things for others at the expense of our own needs — these all stifle our innate creativity. Relaxation, fun, meditation, and going after our dreams all get the creative juices flowing. Soul is always creative, always fresh and new.

How can you create more space in your life to allow the soul’s energy out to play?

“I learned… that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic, striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.”
— Brenda Ueland

“I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of quiet life stimulates the creative mind.”
— Albert Einstein

A Note from the Universe

When people see, for the first time, how everyone else on the planet is just another version of themselves – the same spark of God except for the pressures and desires unique to each life – some laugh, some cry, and some laugh until they cry.

May you live your life so that when this day dawns for you, you’re among those who laugh.

Enthusiasm

“Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.”

-Dale Carnegie

Remember that formula! When we’re really excited about something, if we want to make something happen, all we need to do is to share our enthusiasm, use common sense, and don’t give up! It’s that simple. Success begins with enthusiasm.

-Lissa Coffey
