Often we’re told to remember to be grateful for blessings or good fortune. But Buddhism teaches us to be grateful, period. Gratitude is to be cultivated as a habit or attitude of mind not dependent on conditions.In the quote below, we see that the Buddha taught that gratitude is necessary for integrity. What does that mean?

Elephant Journal: Gratitude is the Surrender our Hearts are Yearning For.

Gratitude—everyone’s talking about it, amirite?!
And there’s good reason.
Gratitude is the tool we can all use to flip the switch on where our focus lies.

Lack is a huge mindset in our culture, and in the collective consciousness. We have created this idea that we don’t quite have enough, and striving for more seems to be the religion of the day.

Patheos Pagan: Honoring the Land and History by Ritualizing Thanksgiving: a Possible Methodology

Thanksgiving is a holiday fraught with complications.
When I was a kid, I was indoctrinated with happy Pilgrims and Indians sharing corn and pie, just like most of the rest of the USA. Mostly I dreaded having to dress up, looked forward to seeing my cousins when they came, and generally liked parades and food.

MNN: ‘Alice’s Restaurant’: It’s a Thanksgiving music tradition

Thanksgiving is full of traditions. With a few exceptions, the food on my Thanksgiving table looks almost exactly like the food that was on my parent’s Thanksgiving table year after year. It’s tradition. When my son was 3 years old, he made paper pilgrims and Native Americans in the shape of paper drumsticks at school. I proudly taped them onto the china cabinet. The next year, he found them and taped them back up. Voila — tradition.

Inner Journey:

VALUING THE MOMENT

“… the only time you ever have in which to learn anything or see anything or feel anything, or express any feeling or emotion, or respond to an event, or grow, or heal, is this moment, because this is the only moment any of us ever gets. You’re only here now; you’re only alive in this moment.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn

Many people regularly squander their time. They live under the assumption that they’ll live forever. As a result, they don’t value the present as a precious opportunity that will never come again.

Others continually race against time, trying to cram too many activities into each hour, and suffering stress in the process.

In our view, we are more effective and most happy when we balance being and doing. We continually ask ourselves what’s most important to get done. And we’re learning to BE — fully present — when we do. We also regularly give ourselves permission to relax.

Make today really matter. It’s all you’ll ever have.

“Very few of us know how much we can put into life if we use it properly, wisely, and economically. Let us economize our time — lifetimes ebb away before we wake up, and that is why we do not realize the value of the immortal time God has given us.”
— Paramahansa Yogananda

Past

“What’s past is prologue.”

-Shakespeare (1574 – 1616) Antonio in The Tempest

I always love to find quotes by Shakespeare, because he says things so poetically. Here are four simple words, which strung together say so much! Prologue is background, it’s the leading-up to what is happening NOW. While it is important to have that background, we need to understand that each act, each new scene of our lives, begins in this moment. The show goes on!

With Divine Love: Cat’s Angel Message for November 26, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

With Divine Love: Cat’s Angel Message for November 26, 2019

November’s Theme:  Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


Divine love will meet all human needs – Mary Baker Eddy


1126: The Universe and its helpers assist us in many ways. One of which is to ensure that our needs are being met. While sometimes we may have our doubts, it’s not the case, but in all reality it is. Are you confused? Let me explain. In today’s society, people tend to want more than what they really need to live. If you look around you can probably find a surplus of THINGS that you could do without. (I know I can) When the angels tell us that they are making sure our needs are met they are speaking of necessities, money to pay our bills, food, shelter, clothing, etc. If we aspire to have more then we need to do our part to make it happen. Working with the  Universe is a partnership and today we are reminded that our needs are truly being met both for ourselves and our loved ones. Remember if you need help, ask and get that request out into the universe. Take a moment to offer gratitude for life and for what you have!


Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want.

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 Green Tara invites us:  “Come and sit beside me. Breathe and calm your mind and heart. In the center of your being lives the fire of your own creation, feel it and bring it forward. Allow it to bring with it your confidence and courage, do not fear, I am here with you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Nebula Stone to help you see clearly the value in everything around you as well as promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.

Larimar helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

Tiger Iron is a combination of Jasper, Hematite and Tiger’s Eye, which 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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

A Sense of Community:  Cat’s Angel Message for November 23, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

A Sense of Community:  Cat’s Angel Message for November 23, 2019

November’s Theme:  Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


The holiday season promotes a heightened sense of community. It draws our chins up and helps us look above and over the limiting fence of our own events, activities and preoccupations. The opportunity for a heroic gesture can tap you quietly on the shoulder in the midst of a holiday bustle. If you are attentive, you will notice the gentle touch and will be able to respond. Remember… There are no small acts of kindness. Every compassionate act makes large the world. – Mary Anne Radmacher


1123:  As we officially enter the “holiday season” anxiety and stress are a common ailment for many. During this time the Universe is reminding us to focus on peace, love, and togetherness. The key is in asking for divine assistance. If we don’t ask then our divine support team can’t help us. While they may want to, they do need our permission. Once we ask for help strengthen that assistance by keeping your faith strong and doing your best to weed out negative thought seeds before they take root. Approach the season with gratitude and compassion. The old saying about “count your blessings” is particularly true during this time. Share with others if you can or simply send peaceful, loving energy out to those around you.


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.

The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy are an essential part of self care and creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go of stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. The power of laughter clears and resets or energy field by releasing tension and emotions that have been held in check. This is an important lesson on our path, if it makes your heart sing then it’s the right direction.

The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, who embodies compassion and mercy says, “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart, and spirit. Be gentle on yourself. Joy comes from embracing the simple things which frees the energy needed to assist the creation process.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Angelite helps us to connect to the angelic realms by enhancing our lines of communication. It is also a good stone for healers as it strengthens attunement and perception.

Inspirational Apatite helps us to be of service by encouraging us to be more open and at ease in social situations as it promotes a humanitarian attitude.

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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Unlike other celestial fireworks from recurring showers like the Perseids or Leonids, the Taurids aren’t so famous for their frequency as they are for the extremely bright fireballs.

Inner Journey:

WHAT ARE YOU FEELING?

“We know too much and feel too little. At least, we feel too little of those creative emotions from which a good life springs.”
— Bertrand Russell

Many of the qualities that bring fulfilment in life are feelings, like love, joy, freedom and gratitude.

In our overly rational world, we tend to think about how we feel, which, of course, is not feeling at all — it’s thinking.

Honour your feelings and be willing to experience them. They give us valuable feedback about what is and what is not working in our lives. They are the signposts to meaningful inner work.

“With just a little education and practice on how to manage your emotions, you can move into a new experience of life so rewarding that you will be motivated to keep on managing your emotional nature in order to sustainit. The payoff is delicious in terms of improved quality of life.”
— Doc Childre

High Counsel: Cat’s Angel Message for October 30, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

High Counsel: Cat’s Angel Message for October 30, 2019

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages.  These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


It was high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, “Always do what you are afraid to do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


1030:  It’s good to have friends in high places, natural places, and even earth, air, fire and water places. No matter what we need, whether its help, healing, peace, etc., all we need to do is ask. As we get ready to close out the month of October we are being reminded of divine guidance and messages. Sometimes we shut our receptors down out of fear, anger or stress. The messages keep coming but they just pile up in the inbox and remain unopened. During these times it’s more important than ever to keep yourself open. Take some time today to ground-center-clear. Open your connection to the Universe. Ask for what you need or simply give thanks for the blessings you have received in this cycle. This will help you to get a step up in November. Remember, your requests are always heard and inner peace is yours for the taking.


Archangel Sandalphon makes sure that our prayers get to the angel or master best able to handle our requests. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!).

The Ascended Master Yogananda teaches us how to open the channels of divine communication and promotes feelings of divine love. He can offer assistance in all things including your spiritual path.

The Inuit Goddess Sedna helps us develop our intuition through the Dreamtime, you can connect with her in or around water. (bath or shower works) “Look to your dreams to guide you. They will show you things you missed while your mind was busy and active”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

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.

Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it draws away negative energy and bring the rational mind forward.

Kyanite is a spiritual stone that helps us to connect to our guides by opening the paths of communication. It also allows us to speak from the heart and to speak our truth as it cuts through the things that are keeping us from moving forward.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

In this usage, noon means midway between sunrise and sunset, and midnight means midway between sunset and sunrise

Inner Journey:

FORGIVENESS BRINGS JOY

“The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Do you feel worthy of having joy? Do you feel you deserve it?

The first step to activating our inner joy is to eliminate the blocks to it. We can start by truly forgiving ourselves and all others. Forgiveness calls for a shift in our perception. It is easier to forgive ourselves and others when we really understand that each of us has always done the very best we knew to do at that time.

“If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole.”
— Joan Borysenko
