Today’s Message: A Delicate Balance

1218: This time of year can make it difficult to maintain the balance between giving and receiving. The key is in your ability to not overextend yourself in either direction. By acknowledging our boundaries we help to create and maintain this necessary balance. By staying open and positive about both areas as well we will find it easier to embody the attitude of gratitude and acknowledge the gifts and blessings that flow in and out of our lives. Remember that the Universe is meeting our needs and that we are safe and cared for. What you send out will come back and your spiritual nature will benefit you today by boosting our levels of faith and trust

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal ourselves and our lives and regain our self-confidence and faith. This opens our spiritual eyes so that we may see what we have and how blessed we truly are as it teaches us how to make room for new things through the clearing out process. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude.

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 Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting ourselves from the negative or controlling energy of others. She says:  “ Personal boundaries are important to your well-being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self-assurance to do what is in your best interest.”

Today’s Sacred Stones 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.

Chalcedony that brings mind, body, spirit and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger or self doubt. It also promotes good feeling towards self and others

 Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” it is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion by staying true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others. It helps us to live in the moment making it easier to snag the blessings given to us. It is also a soothing stone that calms emotions during times of change.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Today’s Message: Meeting Our Needs

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!

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 Irish Goddess Dana helps us to generate abundance through gratitude. She says,  “While you wait for these blessings to arrive fill your heart with feelings of abundance. Engage yourself in things that make you feel abundant!” ….. ” Your energy is linked to the energy of the Divine. Acknowledge and strengthen this connection as it allows you to handcraft your dreams.”

Today’s Sacred Stones 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.

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

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.

Inner Journey:

GO FOR DEPTH

“Mastery does not come from dabbling. We have to be prepared to pay the price. We need to have the sustained enthusiasm that motivates us to give our best.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Our world now offers us a smorgasbord of opportunities. In the personal growth field alone, there is a myriad of books and products, all promising relief from what ails us. It’s easy to flip quickly from one program to another when something new captures our imagination.

If I long for change in my life, however, I need to do more than skim the surface. I need to make time and take time to both learn new approaches and then — most importantly — to apply what I’ve learned. If I jump around to new techniques too rapidly, I won’t benefit from any of them.

“Genius is only the power of making continuous efforts.”
–Elbert Hubbard

Appreciation
“Much misconstruction and bitterness are spared to him who thinks naturally upon what he owes to others, rather than on what he ought to expect from them.”

-Elizabeth De Meulan Guizot


Our expectations can get us into trouble, they can keep us from fully participating. Instead of holding back, and asking “what’s in it for me?” we can choose to jump in and say: “how can I help?” Instantly, our perspective shifts, and our mood along with it.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Tower

The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause.

 November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching and directing our thoughts. Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear. Pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas as they will keep you moving forward on your path.

_____________________________

Today’s Message: The Time For Balance

118: We are entering the season of gratitude and the keyword for today is balance. In order for things to fall into place and move forward, we must find a balance between giving and receiving. Today we are being asked to perform a self check-up. Are you balanced or are you “wobbly” and tipping the scales in either direction? By maintaining this balance we are allowing the Divine flow of abundance and prosperity to go out and then return to us. This also helps us during periods of change and personal transformation. Our ability to stay balanced brings us untold blessings, opportunities and other goodies that we need to prosper. Stay centered and focused as you allow things to come full circle.

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 Buddha is our go-to guy when we feel “wobbly’. He teaches us that the key to happy living requires moderation and balance in all things. This includes the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find that inner peace is ours! 

The Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to find the answer to the question  “How shall I live my life?” She tells us that every moment gives us opportunities for growth. ” When you are filled with indecision you move away from yourself and your power as a creator. Indecision silences your ability to hear your own inner wisdom. If you need my help just ask and I will shower you with energy that will tip the scales in the direction of what you desire.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

. Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth. ( Calcite can also be used to promote the balance of your chakras. When our chakras are in balance it’s easier to live the attitude of gratitude.)  

  Rhodonite. This gentle stone helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and  clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. Its calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations. It also helps to promote the feeling of brotherhood. It also helps to clear and activate the heart chakra which is essential to embracing gratitude while promoting a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity.  

 Zincite helps to remove energy blocks and gets our life force flowing, which aids our manifestation process. It also restores our energy when it becomes depleted by giving away too much of ourselves to others

Today’s Message: Creative Solutions

116: Your power of positive thinking can help you create a revolving flow of what you need. However, the Universe is letting us know that our focus should be on more important things. The key is in learning to appreciate what you have and embracing the attitude of gratitude. It is through the acknowledgment of our blessings that new paths open up and new opportunities present themselves. This is part of the change process that we have been working with. Think big, dream big as some of the changes we are or will be experiencing will involve the material realm. Stay focused on the best possible outcome and if negativity comes knocking turn it over to the Universe to be dealt with accordingly. Remember that you are the creator of your own personal transformation and your destiny as well so find creative solutions and paths to take you to the next level.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Gabriel helps us to access our inner wisdom and shows us how it can guide and inspire us. Gabriel also teaches us the importance of communication on all levels. This helps us to overcome our fears so that we can complete the things we start and achieve positive results during times of transformation and change.

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 Hindu Goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! 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.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Aquamarine balance’s emotions that can become frayed during the change that new cycles create. It helps us to move forward and navigate the ebb and flow of life.

Beryl teaches us how to fulfill our true potential. It helps us to see both sides of a situation, opportunity or problem and promotes strategic planning so that we can use it to our best advantage.

Golden Ray Calcite to boost your creative thinking and to eliminate patterns of self-defeating thinking. This helps to promote new and innovative ways to solve problems and move things forward.

Today’s Message: Help The Universe To Help You

1026: The Universe and its helpers assist us in many ways. For example, they help to ensure that our needs are being met. While sometimes it may not feel that way, in all reality it is. In today’s’ society people tend to want more than what they need to live, it’s an ego trip and if you look around you can probably find a surplus of THINGS that you could do without. When the Universe tells us that they are making sure that our needs are being met they are speaking of necessities, money to pay our bills, food, shelter, clothing, etc. However, they are here to assist not to provide excess. Working with the Universe is a partnership so if we aspire to have more then we need then we must to do our part to help make it happen. 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!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Uriel teaches us how to access our creative database. He reminds us that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to use a non-conventional approach. He  gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations.

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.

The Hawaiian fire goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Ametrine. This stone, a combination of amethyst and citrine, helps to release blocks like negative emotional programming. It also encourages growth while helping us to explore all possibilities and find the creative solutions that are needed to make the most of the information we are given.    

Lava Stone. This simple stone is a powerful symbol of our own energy and is connected to Pele. It is a stone of rebirth and helps us to burn away unneeded layers so we can initiate new growth.

Pietersite (Tempest stone) helps us to work through through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens our  intuitive connection and creates a link to a loving level of guidance. It also helps us see the truth and strengthen our will while increasing our focus of where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm.

Inner Journey:

WHAT’S OFF BALANCE?

“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler

Spirit requires a balance of female and male energy, yin and yang, receptiveness and expression. Are you sensitive to intuition and inner guidance? Are you able to act on the guidance you receive? Seek to find a balance in being and doing in all areas of your life.

“The balanced energy is the birthing energy. I used to say that the birthing energy was all feminine — it’s not. You have to push and you have to be. It’s such a potent example of the dance of the feminine and masculine together, the dance that is the creative energy of life!”
— Joyce Irvine

“I have learned, in whatever state I am, to be content. I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound; in any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and want.”

-Paul (C.E. 1st cent.)
When all around us is in flux, constantly moving and changing, can we keep our awareness on that still, calm, quiet within? That’s where we find our peace. That’s where we will find our contentment.

Everybody falls victim to a misjudgment or a faulty calculation sometimes, so don’t let that be a reason to grind to a halt and stop working on what matters to you. Sometimes deception is involved, but that does not free you from the obligation to try and set things right. It’s all about being responsible, and that’s what you want to be, anyway

Today’s Message: Sharing The Inner Wealth

108: Abundance is something everyone desires and it tends to make people feel secure. It comes in many forms and we will receive it in many different ways during our lifetime. When we keep our thoughts focused on positive things and live with the attitude of gratitude we invite those things into our lives. If you think about it, we are all pretty wealthy. Today the Universe asking us to share our “wealth” with others. This can be done through leading by example and help others to see things differently and in a positive light. Your powers of creative thinking will help you today and maybe even create a few “Tiny Miracles”. Let your divine light shine and don’t be afraid to share it!

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 give and 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 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 and help others along the way.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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

Most of all, count your blessings. Have everyone in your family make a list of all the things they are thankful for and then read them aloud. I will also include my favorite activity…”feeding the trees”. We share a drink of apple cider or wine with our trees. This honors not only the tree spirit but The Greenman as well.

Mabon (pronounced May-bon, May-bone, May-bun, May-bawn) is celebrated at the time of the Autumn Equinox on or around September 21. This festival marks the completion of the harvest begun at Lughnasadh. It is named after the celtic god Mabon. Other names for this Lesser Sabbat include Harvest Home, Festival of Dionysus, The Feast of Avalon, Mea’n Fo’mhair (druid), Winter Finding (norse), Equinozio di Autunnio (strega).

On this day, day and night are again equal and time holds it’s breath as the Dying God gets ready to leave his physical body and begin the great journey to the Summerland. He sees this as the last great adventure of renewal and rebirth. The Goddess who is drowsing in the waning warmth of summer feels her love getting ready to depart as well as the new life growing in her womb.

The threefold theme for this Sabbat is Balance- Gratitude- Reflection. This is also a time of balance not only within nature but within ourselves and our lives. On the great wheel Mabon is balanced by Ostara. It is traditional to clean the unnecessary clutter from your home and life as well as blessing the thresholds of your house. Look back on everything you have done in the past year and with your life. Congratulate yourself on your accomplishments and make note of the areas you need to improve upon. Give thanks to the Lady and Lord, yourself and to everyone who has helped to get where your on this day! This is a wonderful time to do spells of balancing in preparation of the time of relfection that will be coming up at Samahain.

A Mabon Thought…. by Cat

On this day I am Thankful.

I am thankful for being able to rise and greet the day when there are those who cannot……..

I am thankful for my health and the health of my family, when so many others are sick……

I am thankful for having a home when so many are homeless……….

I am thankful for my family, friends, and pets when so many spend their lives alone………

I am thankful for having a loving spouse when many live with =buse……….

I am thankful for the food on my table when others are starving………

I am thankful for my job when so many are out of work……….

I am thankful for just being here and being able to participate in the adventure called life………

On this day I remember how important it is to give thanks everyday even when it seems like I have nothing to be thankful for

On this day I give thanks for all that I have no matter how small it seems.

On this day I acknowledge how blessed I really am and I give thanks to the people and events in my life that have helped me to be the person I am today……….

I am thankful………………….

This will clear your inner and outer sacred space. Then open the doors and invite the new blessings inside.”
