Thought For The Day: August 3, 2020 “Welcome It In!”

Happy Monday,

Happiness is a state of mind that often feels elusive. So what does it take to experience true happiness? A little FAITH, the ability to live in GRATITUDE, and to embrace our GIFTS. It can be found when we BELIEVE  in ourselves and when we share the unique ENERGY that is ours. You’ve totally got this and deserve true happiness. Welcome it in!

Thought For The Day: June 10, 2020 ” Fingerprints”

Happy Wednesday,

Every day we make a difference in the life of another. Sometimes it’s a conscious effort and other times we may be completely unaware of it. There are so many ways to make a difference, some are large and grand, while others are small and mundane. We often go through periods of wondering if anything we do really matters. The truth is that that it does. Big or small, a touch, a smile, being of service or assistance, or just being a listener matter. Today, think about those who have touched in your life in some way. These memories are dear, hold them close, and know that others are doing the same.

Think in New Directions: Cat’s Angel Message for June 4, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Think in New Directions: Cat’s Angel Message for June 4, 2020

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self, etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Most of us are prisoners of habit, and don’t even notice that we do the same things, think the same things, want the same things each day – mostly without conscious thought. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


64:  This month we turn our focus to the material realm. There are certain material items that we need to live, food, clothing, shelter, and other basic necessities. Today we are being reassured us that all of our needs are being met and will continue to be met in the future. However, the angels cannot do it all for us so we must do our part by adding our own energy and focus. This will help to open new doors that will increase our flow of abundance. Express your gratitude to the Angels, the Divine, and the Universe and welcome the blessings that are waiting for you!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Raziel gently guides us through the manifestation process so that we are more adept at creating what we need and what we want. Remember that NEED and WANT are two separate things and by concentrating on need first all else will fall into place.

 

The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

 

The Hindu Goddess White Tara embodies the beauty of Divine love and shows us the path to strengthening or restoring our faith. She says: “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Moss Agate. This gentle stone promotes new beginnings and can help release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways. Often referred to as the gardener’s stone Moss Agate helps us connect to nature, the earth, and our own inner garden as well. Carry it with you or wear it during times of new growth.

 

Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making.

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. It teaches us to go with the flow and encourages us to explore all options so that we can make the best decisions for our journey.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

The Goodness of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for May 16, 2020

May Theme: This month brings changes and growth into your life.  Be willing to embrace them and allow things to happen naturally as this will help us focus on bigger and better things!


Be open to the goodness of life – even in the midst of apparent adversity. -Jonathan Lockwood Huie


516:  Our thoughts help to create our reality, and it’s true. You see, by acknowledging and focusing on the good things in our lives the happier and more peaceful we are. Now, this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t want something better because we all deserve abundant blessings. Living in gratitude helps to make room for these blessings. Gratitude opens the door, shakes hands with the blessings on the doorstep, and invites them in to take a load off and stay awhile. Today the Universe is gently reminding us that our needs are being met and that today is a great time to offer thanks for what you have and for the blessings that are headed your way!


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 Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

 

The Roman goddess Vesta who oversees hearth and home. She helps us to clear space (both in our physical home and our inner home) to make room for new things and teaches us the value of letting go of what we no longer need. ” If something does not make your heart sing put it where it belongs or set it free. This will clear your inner and outer sacred space. Then open the doors and invite the new blessings inside.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Tree Agate (Dendritic) to strengthen your connection to the plant kingdom and help you to enjoy each moment. It is also known as the stone of plentitude and promotes abundance while showing us the “wealth” we already have.

Sunstone brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. It brings out our natural optimism, self-confidence, and promotes our natural flow of abundance as it soothes our fear of change and the accompanying stress that change can bring. Sunstone has a strong connection to light and helps to harness the re-energizing power of the sun during meditation and everyday life. It is linked to all benevolent deities and brings good fortune and luck.

Tiger Iron. This stone, which is a combination of Jasper, Hematite, and Tiger’s Eye, helps to promote change by opening space within and providing the energy to accomplish what’s needed by generating new and creative ways and ideas to make the changes easier.

Being Happy and Grateful: Cat’s Angel Message for April 18, 2020

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


The way to happiness is what I call Zero-Based Gratitude. Each day be happy and grateful for what you have, independent of yesterday and of other people. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


418:  Being grateful for what we have may sound like a common or boring theme for the day. The truth is that this mindset should be embraced every day. There are times when we backslide into negative patterns and we concentrate or worry about the things that we don’t have or can’t have. These patterns place limits on our ability to manifest the good/necessary things in life. However, when we meet each day with the attitude of gratitude and look for life’s tiny miracles things flow and fall into place. Allow your gratitude to shine through today and let good things unfold and happen!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Ascended Master Mother Mary provides us with all forms of healing. She surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love as she imparts feelings of peace and safety as she gently heals the dark, hidden places within while showing us the path that leads to compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others.

The Greek Goddess Iris teaches us that miracles of beauty can happen in an instant. She says “Open your eyes, both physical and spiritual, then open your heart and allow the divine light to fill you. This will help you see the blessings and the beauty that are right before your eyes. Take nothing for granted.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Crazy Lace Agate gently boosts our self confidence and concentration while reestablishing our overall feelings of wholeness and well-being. It’s an excellent grounding stone that helps to bring balance between our negative and positive emotions.

Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop. This stone is also associated with Archangel Jophiel.

Celestite which promotes spiritual development and teaches us to reach for personal enlightenment and helps us to find peace within. It also helps us to embrace new experiences while blending instinct and intellect to create balance and harmony while providing strength and calm.

328: Prosperity and abundance come in many forms and is more than just money. Too often people focus on money or material things instead of seeing the whole picture.

“In the midst of times of uncertainty it serves us to reflect on how gratefulness might help to calm us, reduce fears and expectations, open us to greater clarity and love, and fuel action grounded in our deep intentions. Gratitude is not a panacea. It may not cure or solve our anxiety or concerns but it can foster ease, connection, kindness, and well-being — all valuable qualities which would be good to “go viral” these days. Gratitude cannot save us from sickness or suffering, but it can change how we experience sickness, and it may change our relationship to suffering.” The Gratefulness Team shares more { read more }

Inner Journey:

LIMITED PERSPECTIVES

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
— Friedrich Nietzsche

We never have enough information to enable us to fully understand the truth of the reality around us. And there is never only one correct perspective about anything.

Knowing this helps me let go of my tendency to label things as good or bad. I suffer least when I can accept reality just as it is. And I benefit most when I open my heart and mind in appreciation.

“If you are pained by external things, it is not they that disturb you, but your own judgment of them. And it is in your power to wipe out that judgment now.”
— Marcus Aurelius

Reason
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord.”

-Isaiah (8th cent B.C.) Isaiah 1:18
Reason is calm, rational, and thoughtful. Reason could be called common sense. We are blessed with a thinking mind, which sometimes spins itself into wild imagination. When we bring reason into the equation, it lets us clear our minds, to see the big picture, to hear other opinions, to make sense of the chaotic.

-Lissa Coffey

Material Things: Cat’s Angel Message for March 6, 2020

Material Things: Cat’s Angel Message for March 6, 2020

March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.


Living in fear of anything is a terrible waste of what could be a great life. If you live in fear of losing your job, either you fear the embarrassment of being jobless, or you fear the loss of material goods – house, car, and such. If you live in fear of losing your stuff and money, it is clear that they own you. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


36: Our focus today involves letting go of material worries and concerns. When we fixate on these things we are causing ourselves unnecessary stress. Even though there may be nothing we can do at that moment we often allow ourselves to get worked up. This is not so good for our physical, emotional or spiritual well being. The Angels are letting us know that they are here to help and that they are supporting you and your loved ones. Don’t focus on what you feel you are lacking, instead place your focus on what you have. Embrace gratitude and the tiny miracles you experience today. Show yourself a little love and hang out in a happy place!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily

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.

Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop. This stone is also associated with Archangel Jophiel.

Charoite. This multi-hued mineral is a stone of transformation. It helps to open our hearts to the concept of unconditional love and brings those energies forward. Charoite enhances our perception and helps to ground our spiritual nature into everyday reality. This stone can be used to reduce stress and worry as it helps us to overcome fear,

Eulite (Hypersthene) which 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 that are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.
