Just Remember… :Cat’s Angel Message for March 18, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


“To remember who you are you need to forget who they told you to be.” – Unknown


318:  Balance is the key to creating the flow of abundance so today the Universe is asking us to perform a balance check. Both giving and receiving are important, however they must be done in equal measure. Doing too much of one or the other depletes our energy and blocks positive flow. This balance is essential because by helping others we ultimately help ourselves.When we are balanced we find that we are centered and  filled with joy and inner peace. So take time today for a little self assessment. If you are tipping the scales one way or the other take the necessary steps to even things out. The universe and it’s helpers are always working to help us manifest what we need. Use your intuition to  access the divine messages that are sent your way. Have faith in the skills you have and be courageous and add something new to the mix. Use the personal power you were given and if something feels right… go for it!


When we are feeling off kilter Archangel Raguel can help us to create order out of chaos. He helps us to resolve disputes and arguments which can arise when we stand firm in our power.  The Ascended Master Buddha teaches us that the key to happy living lies in the “Middle Way” aka moderation in all things as this is the path to balancing ourselves and the Egyptian goddess Maat provides us with the clarity to see the truth in both people and situations.She reminds us to “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Garnet which helps to revitalize and balance our energy, clears and re energizes our Chakras. For those who tend to be stingy with giving this stone can open the heart Chakra to correct the imbalance. We can also use Zincite to promotes healthy relationships and to remove energy blocks while infusing us with clarity.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Jan. 8, 2019 “No Regrets”

Happy Tuesday,

We all have regrets. Things we should have done, chances we should have taken. However we can’t build our lives around regrets.  Take what life offers you and run with it. Life is an adventure that we shouldn’t miss out on.

Information: Cat’s Angel Message for November 10, 2018 

November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts.  Remember that POSITIVE opens and draws and NEGATIVE closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


I find motivation and inspiration and hope in information. – Mary Anne Radmacher


1110:  Today the Universe is asking us to use our intuition to receive a little divine guidance. This will provide  some much needed direction so remember to keep all receptors open. Messages can come from anywhere and at any time, such as thoughts or ideas, visual clues or even physical objects. If the message you receive doesn’t seem to make sense to you right now, file it away for future reference as you will need it at a later time. However, if you are strongly guided to take action, do so. Keep in mind that while opportunities may come back around it best to grab them when they first show up or you could miss out on something important that you need right now. It’s important to note that we should never try and force guidance to happen. Just relax and let things flow. Information comes more easily when the mind is calm.


Archangel Michael helps us to commit to our path while giving us the courage we need to keep moving. He provides direction as well as protection. The Celtic Goddess Brigid and the Egyptian Goddess Maat can help us to understand the information we receive by providing clarity and truth. And the Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) helps us to see things in a lighter and more joyous perspective.


Our Sacred Stone is Sugilite which is sometimes called Archangel Michael’s  stone. This is a stone of spiritual love and awareness and  promotes Divine interaction and communication. Sugilite also encourages positive thinking and teaches us to live our truth and to trust our intuition.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Oct. 17, 2018 “Life’s Paths”

Happy Wednesday,

Life is meant to be a grand adventure. If we look at life like an off road experience we can see the paths and trails that surround us. Some are paved and smooth, others are bumpy. They go uphill and  downhill and some are just plain scary. Remember that life is meant to be experienced and that exploration is highly encouraged.

Thought For The Day: Sept. 4, 2018 “The Meaning”

Happy Tuesday,

The true meaning of life is a mystery. We all  go through times when we wonder why we’re here and what the point really is. If you are feeling bored or stuck take a few minutes and  look at our thought for today. Does one of these “paths” speak  to you? Remember that if something helps you find meaning (even if it’s not on our list), or brings you joy then you are on the right path.

MBG: Is The Universe Giving You The Green Light? Here’s How To Identify The Signs

Ever wondered if the universe was giving you the green light? Maybe it is.

Say you’re trying to decide if you should ask your boss for a raise or more flexible hours. And then, when you’re on your lunch break, you come across an article about how it’s important to be assertive and ask for what you deserve. In big and small ways, the universe will actively encourage us to go after something if it’s in our highest good.

Hope is often viewed as the anticipation of circumstances being better in the future, but in this article environmentalist and social activist Kate Davies suggests that intrinsic hope is based in the here and now.

EarthSky News: Moon’s dark side faces Earth

Tonight – July 23, 2018 – see if you can make out the dark areas on tonight’s waxing gibbous moon. These smooth, low-lying lunar plains are called maria, the plural for the word mare), the Latin word for sea. You should be able to see the darkened portions on the moon with the eye alone. The dark maria on the moon’s near side – the solidified remnants of ancient lunar seas of molten magma – make the near side of the moon reflect less light than the far side, which has fewer maria.

Patheos-Pagan: Words from a Witch – Magickal Poetry

Witches love songs, spells and chants that rhyme or have a poetry flare. Sometimes the words come easily as if we are being told what to say or write. Other times, emotions fuel the fire. Over the years, I have collected a little book of some poems that have spilled out from my heart and soul. I shall share those with you now.

Inner Journey:

EXPLORE YOUR FEARS

“Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, our fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if we explore them.”
— Marilyn Ferguson

In our world of duality, fear and love sit at opposite ends of the continuum. Fear belongs only to the personality because it believes in separation and impermanence. The soul never knows fear because it understands the unity of all.

When fear arises, we can invite our soul to sit with our frightened personality. What soul energies are waiting to be acknowledged? When we bring higher energies into the presence of lower energies, the lower energies are transformed.

“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.”
— Jiddu Krishnamurti

A Note from the Universe 

The difference between how you sometimes see yourself, and how I see you, could be summed up like this:

You wonder, at times, what it is you might do that you’d be wildly successful at.

And I wonder, at times, how you seem to miss that you already are.

Inspiration

“Stung by the splendour of a sudden thought.” -Robert Browning (1812-1889)

Robert Browning describes inspiration so poetically. And isn’t that exactly what it feels like? Inspiration seems to come out of nowhere – but we really know exactly where it comes from – Spirit. In fact, the word itself means “in spirit.” So when we are tuned in with that divine energy, we are open to receiving that “splendour” at any time. And it is beautiful.

-Lissa Coffey

Thoughtco: Lammas History: Welcoming the Harvest

At Lammas, also called Lughnasadh, the hot days of August are upon us, much of the earth is dry and parched, but we still know that the bright reds and yellows of the harvest season are just around the corner. Apples are beginning to ripen in the trees, our summer vegetables have been picked, corn is tall and green, waiting for us to come gather the bounty of the crop fields. Now is the time to begin reaping what we have sown, and gathering up the first harvests of grain, wheat, oats, and more.

From a young age, the current mode of education encourages us to develop our intellects and to find success by getting a prestigious job, making large sums of money and acquiring things.

The unfortunate outcome is seen all around us in a culture rife with attitudes and technology that dehumanizes our most basic sense of goodness.

Elephant Journal: A Ritual for those Impossible Mornings. 

Every morning was a surprise.
In another life, not so long ago, the journey from my sheets to the coffee pot seemed impossible.
Morning was a foggy mystery full of unwelcome clues from the night before and too much wine. Sunlight was an aggressive force against the slicing pain between my eyes. Every day felt like a continuation of confusion from all the nights before. I did not feel real. I could not seem to step into myself and start my day effectively. Something needed to change.

Inner Journey: 

FEEL YOUR EMOTIONS

“The key is to not resist or rebel against emotions or to try to get around them by devising all sorts of tricks; but to accept them directly, as they are.”
— Takahisa Kora

Emotions are energy in motion. They bring us information if we are willing to experience them. Unfortunately, many of us are afraid of the energy of emotions and so we automatically resist them. And when we refuse to experience our emotions, we block them up. They become trapped and that entrapment drains our energy and brings continuing discomfort.

Don’t let emotions push you into action or reaction. Just STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Allow them to be and to speak to you. Oncem they are acknowledged, their energy is released.

“Instead of resisting any emotion, the best way to dispel it is to enter it fully, embrace it and see through your resistance.”
— Deepak Chopra

“We have to become more conscious of our feeling-world. By learning to identify the ‘emotional baggage’ and manage our feeling-world reactions, we can view life based on current information instead of being held captive by our past.”
— Doc Childre

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.”
— Audre Lorde

A Note from the Universe 

Go for it, not once, but again and again and again. Whatever it takes. Because in the end, with arms held high in the winner’s circle, beaming with joy, as light as a feather, crying your eyes out, you’ll see how fantastically disproportionate the rewards are for the effort expended, the risks taken, and the price paid – no matter how many false starts you endured. And you’ll be astounded by how quickly you made it, even though, when the going got tough and your spirits ebbed, you thought you’d never, ever, ever, “see the day.”

Tallyho,

Enthusiasm

“The measure of an enthusiasm must be taken between interesting events. It is between bites that the lukewarm angler loses heart.”

-Edwin Way Teale

Can’t you just picture this scenario? A fisherman who LOVES to fish doesn’t just love those moments when he actually lands one – he loves the whole process. Similarly, an actor with an enthusiasm for his craft is just as happy doing a part in a community theatre play as he would be starring in a feature film. What makes for an “interesting event?” What compels us to hang in there? It’s the whole process that generates enthusiasm when we truly love to do what we do.

-Lissa Coffey
