Two Ways To Live: Cat’s Angel Message for December 26, 2018 

December’s Theme: Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life. Taking action will aid in manifestation.


There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. – Albert Einstein


1226:  The Universe and it’s helpers assist us in many ways. For example, they help to ensure that our basic material needs are being met. While sometimes it may feel like this isn’t the case, in all reality it is. In today’s society people tend to want more than what they really need to live. It’s an ego thing. If you look around you can probably find a surplus of THINGS that you could do without. (I know I can) When the Universe tells us that our needs are being met it refers to basic necessities like money to pay our bills, food, shelter, clothing etc. They are here to assist, not to provide excess. If we aspire to have more then we need to do our part to make it happen. Working with angels, ascended masters etc. is a partnership. Today we are reminded that our needs are being met for ourselves and our loved ones. Take a moment to offer gratitude for life and for what you have!


Archangel Raguel promotes harmony and cooperation within groups and families, ensuring they work together for a common cause. The Ascended Master Babaji assists us in detaching ourselves from material things and showing us how to simplify our lives. And, the Hindu goddess Lakshmi assists us in manifesting the necessities that we need. She is a goddess of prosperity and abundance and can boost your energy so that you are better able to help yourself. ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Jade which attracts both prosperity and good luck as it soothes the mind and escorts negative thoughts to the door. And  Nebula Stone. This energetically unique stone, that resembles the night sky. It allows you to see the value of the things around you and helps you to appreciate what you have.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Happy Wednesday,

When “real life” happens (and it always does) remember to look for the lessons and learn from them. While it can be hard to accept some lessons with gratitude, keep in mind that they will make us better for having experienced them.

MBG: Get Ready, Because The Last Week Of 2018 Will Be A Roller Coaster

On Monday, Neptune squares Mercury, and it’ll speak to our soft, emotional sides.
This Monday, December 24, head-in-the-clouds Neptune muffles logical Mercury’s input levels as the two lock into a dynamic square. This compassionate combo could turn events into pure poetry. Raise a touching toast, even if you scrawl it impromptu-style on the back of a cocktail napkin.

Daily Good: Dealing with the Darkness of What Humans Do to Humans

The darkest capacities of humans to hurt fellow humans and destroy the natural world offer us the challenge of shifting our consciousness to discover what humanity can achieve through awareness, to create something alive and dynamic instead. Two organizations, Rising Women Rising World and FemmeQ have identified five of the outstanding qualities of feminine intelligence –available to men as to women — that could enable us to achieve tangible long-lasting results through awareness.

Elephant Journal: Crazy Coincidence or Wink from the Cosmos? Finding Meaning in Synchronicities.

Last week, I taught a class to a group of seventh and eighth graders using the metaphor of a tree to talk about life and all the different elements important we must have in order to grow.
For example, how a tree’s roots represent our foundation and what we need to help us stay grounded, and its fruit—our dreams and the gifts we came here to share.

MNN: This 100-year-old Mexican Christmas tradition involves carving giant radishes

The city of Oaxaca, Mexico, has a creative way to bring attention to the harvest, particularly the cherished radish crop. Dating back to 1897, market vendors would carve the vegetables into various figures to make their radishes look more appealing. The mayor created a festival around the carvings — La Noche de Rábanos, or Night of the Radishes.

EarthSky News: Moon and Gemini on December 23 and 24

On December 23 and 24, 2018, the waning gibbous moon – just past the solstice full moon – passes to the south of the two brightest stars of the constellation Gemini. These two stars are noticeable for being bright and close together. In sky lore, they represent the starry eyes of twin brothers. One star is Castor, and the other is Pollux. On these nights, the moon is also passing to the north of Procyon, the Little Dog Star

Inner Journey:

WHERE’S YOUR ATTENTION?

“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.”
— Greg Anderson

What do you usually focus on: problems or solutions?

When our mind dwells on a problem, we stay stuck. Woe is me! But when we can shift to ask how we might achieve a solution to our problem, our subconscious mind, thinking and creativity move into gear. New possibilities open up.

Get in the habit of asking for solutions!

“Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?”
— Eric Allenbaugh

Today’s Recipe: Pretzel Rolo Turtles (Gluten Free)

Several years ago, our daughter made these for me, gluten free, and brought them when she came for Christmas. They were delicious and I have been wanting to try to make them ever since but never seemed to get around to doing it until today. I try not to eat a lot of sweets but when it’s Christmas, I go wild. Oh, gosh! These are so good and so quick and easy to make

“Yes, there is a Nirvanah: it is in leading your sheep to a green pasture, and in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem.”

-Kahlil Gibran

Our blessings are right in front of us, every day. The little things that make us happy, those are the things that make life worthwhile. It’s easy to see the big blessings, they get our attention – but the sweet, simple, small events that make us smile, for those we must be grateful, too.

Daily Good: Say Grace

” I am deeply delighted to live on a planet that is so big and varied that I can confidently say that right this very minute somewhere in the world a crossword puzzle is being completed, a fortune cookie is being snapped open and a song just brought someone to tears. I love knowing that while I am fast asleep in California, a crowd is gathered around the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum, a marriage proposal is taking place and a leaf-cutter ant somewhere in Costa Rica is carrying a leaf piece back to its nest.” In this brief, beautiful piece artist Lea Redmond conjures up a sense of the world of marvels we wake up in each day.

Elephant Journal: The Miracle that happens when we Show Up Naked

Bare naked: a soul investigation.
Scary thought, isn’t it? To show up in the world with no armor on.

That armor can be anything: power suits, high heels, hair gel, breast implants, a Mercedes, lipstick, social media, money, kids, strong bodies, sexy struts, fake smiles, politics, religion, dogma…anything.
Consider this: Just you. Just me. Nothing and no one else. Naked as the day we were born.

EarthSky News: Sky Bear comes to Earth in November 

Tonight … a constellation you might or might not see, depending on your latitude. In the Northern Hemisphere, the Big Dipper is probably the sky’s best known asterism. In other words, it’s a recognizable pattern of stars – not an official constellation. The Big Dipper is part of the constellation Ursa Major, otherwise known as the Great Bear.

Inner Journey: 

IT’S A MATTER OF BALANCE.

“My soul is the bridge between spirit and body and, as such, is a uniter of opposites. …Without soul at center, I would either transcend into spirit or become mired in matter.”
— Marion Woodman

Ram Dass talks of how his first spiritual goal was to be rid of his physical existence. He came to understand, though, that our spirituality lies in bringing higher consciousness to our world of form. When we can do so, we can delight in all aspects of creation.

Soul exists in the balance of spirit and matter. For a soulful life, we pay attention to both, seeing spiritual qualities in material forms. As our awareness grows, we begin to use consciousness to influence and create form. It’s through form that our spirit expresses.

“Walk in balance with one foot in your spiritual understanding and one foot in your physical world of accomplishment.”
— Lynn V. Andrews

Self-Knowledge

“A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us.”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Sometimes one single event is all it takes to totally wake us up to the Truth that is here all the time. But for most of us, it is a process that gradually unfolds, giving us clues, hints, and glimpses of Reality in small doses so that we can assimilate them into our lives. We become familiar with who we are, we get to know ourselves day by day, as we come to understand and accept that we are much more than the roles we play.

-Lissa Coffey

A Leap In The Dark: Cat’s Angel Message for October 24, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

A Leap In The Dark: Cat’s Angel Message for October 24, 2018 

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


We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success. – Henry David Thoreau


1024:  Everyday, whether we realize it or not, we are surrounded with love and protection from the Sacred Source. Our divine helpers are also near and ready to help. Over the last few days we have been working on our personal evolution which requires faith and courage. Both are important. Through faith we draw upon  our inner courage. And that courage comes from embracing and acknowledging your own divine power (our spark). If things feel a bit off kilter today, take a moment to ground and center, then remind yourself that you are worthy of creating and receiving great things. Chase your dreams and follow your heart!


As you clear and center connect to your image of the Sacred Source.  Extend gratitude for what you have and the good things coming your way. Ask for what you need today. (peace, healing, energy, protection, etc.) Commit yourself to being open to receive and allow yourself to see the world with fresh eyes.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Azurite-Malachite. This combination of deep blue and green works with the Third Eye and Heart Chakras, which are essential to receiving divine guidance. It also promotes our individuality and the ability to be flexible in our thinking.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Internal Peace & Love: Cat’s Angel Message for October 4, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

Internal Peace: Cat’s Angel Message for October 4, 2018

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


 One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others. – Lao Tzu


104: Today the Sacred Source (Goddess, God) is reminding us that we are always surrounded by their divine love. They share their powerful energy freely and simply ask that we do the same. Empathy and compassion, for self, for others, are gifts that we can share everyday. While we may not understand or agree with a particular situation or event we can express empathy for what others (or even yourself) are going through. If you are feeling out of sorts today take a moment to clear and center and ask the Source to fill your being with love, peace and gratitude. Remember, when you love yourself it’s easier to share love with others. Love and compassion are superpowers that transform all that they touch. Who will you touch today?


The Chinese goddess and Bodhisattva Kuan Yin teaches us to show kindness and love toward yourself and others as well as tolerance and understanding. She is also a Sacred Feminine spirit much like Mother Mary, and answers every prayer sent to her.  The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to find our peace which is an essential component of love and compassion and Archangel Zadkiel  promotes the healing of our hearts so that empathy and compassion can come forward.


Our Sacred Stones for today are  Rose Quartz today to  help send loving energy to yourself and to others and  Chalcedony which brings mind, body, spirit and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger or self doubt. It also promotes good feeling towards self and others.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Sept. 25, 2018 “Everything”

Happy Tuesday,

Gratitude. We talk about it a lot and how important it is. Our ability to be grateful even for the smallest or mundane things plays an important role in how we see our lives. Small things help us to see the bigger picture through the art of appreciation. The more we appreciate what we have the less we need to feel complete.
