Daily Good: How Cultural Differences Shape Gratitude

“Most of what we know about it [gratitude] comes from studying Americans–and, specifically, the mainly white American college students from the campuses where researchers work. That creates a cultural bias in the science, and that’s why more and more researchers are exploring what gratitude looks and feels like in a range of cultures.” This article shares more.

Elephant Journal: The Real Reasons why Feng Shui starts with Decluttering.
In the Western world, Feng Shui is widely misunderstood as a manifestation tool.
This is unsurprising given that it’s so often peddled as just that. And people have mixed results—for some it works like a charm and others have frustratingly poor outcomes.

EarthSky News: Peak Perseid mornings: August 11, 12, 13

When is the peak of the Perseid meteor shower in 2019? The most meteors are most likely to fall in the predawn hours on August 13, yet under the light of a bright waxing gibbous moon. The mornings of August 11 and 12 are surely worth trying, too, especially as there will be more moon-free viewing time on these mornings

Today’s Deity: Dagda – A Powerful Leader Of The Tuatha De Danann In Celtic Mythology

The Dagda was an ancient god of the earth, originally an agricultural god. When Christianity became dominant in Ireland, the Dagda became a comical figure, a brute giant with a huge gut. This was poor treatment of this respected god of many talents, called the “Good God” or “Shining” in old Celtic myths

Patheos Pagan: The Mystic Pagan

I was always interested in spirituality, not religion, but direct connection with the source, whatever it might be. I didn’t care what it was called. I fell in love with meditation, exercise, and philosophy at a very young age, and thrived in the exploration of these things in college where I decided that I needed to develop myself in order to experience life and my spirituality more fully.

Inner Journey:

TRYING TOO HARD?

“Thinking about interior peace destroys interior peace. The patient who constantly feels his pulse is not getting any better.”
— Hubert van Zeller

Are you trying too hard to be good, to be perfect, to be spiritual?

‘Trying too hard’ is an expression of fear. If you can replace the fear with faith that everything always serves our highest good, your confidence and peace of mind will serve your aspirations.

“So many people work so hard, to achieve, attain, accumulate and cherish their fortunes. How many of us blissfully fill our days and nights being the Divine expression we are? This is the meaning of life. It is to be. As a result, all of your creations are a natural outflow from the Divine within your being. This is the joy of life.”
— Barbara Rose

Ideas

“Ideas come from God.”

-Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Ideas are so ethereal- we wonder where they come from, how we “get” them. There is one school of thought that says that there are no new ideas- that every idea ever conceived is floating around in the universe and it is up to us to tap into that intelligence, and kind of “download” it into our consciousness. It makes sense that ideas come from God. But then we have to wonder if God “gives” us these ideas, or if we go out there and “find” them from our own creative pursuits.

-Lissa Coffey

Thought For The Day: August 12, 2019 ” Good and Bad”

Happy Monday,

Life is not a black and white concept.  It is a combination of things both good and bad. Bad things happen to give us perspective and to help us see the mistakes that we have made. They help us to make better choices and teach us to appreciate all the good things in our lives.

Thankful Receiving: Cat’s Angel Message for July 28, 2019

Thankful Receiving: Cat’s Angel Message for July 28, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest. – William Blake


728: In the past we’ve talked about abundance and how it comes in many forms.  As you harvest the bounty of Mother Nature remember the importance of  acknowledging what you  have and the importance of harvesting our inner abundance as well. This generates a positive energy flow which draws new blessings to us. Our message today is a reminder that the flow of divine abundance always surrounds us. As we approach the first of the Pagan harvest festivals, Lammas/ Lughnasadh, it’s a great time to take stock of what you have and you may even find some things ready to harvest. The old adage of “counting your blessings” really comes into play over the next few days. It’s time to harvest from our inner fields and gardens and embrace the richness and tiny miracles that fill our lives.


Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews and changes. He can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently as well as the areas that need attention and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement.  The Hindu God  and Ascended Master Krishna brings us both joy and happiness. He helps us to see how blessed we truly are as he awakens out spirits to the good things life has to offer,  and the Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in it’s many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to grateful for.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Tiger’s Eye helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions. It is a stone of luck and prosperity and works with the energies of both earth and sun, it also helps with grounding while drawing spiritual energies to earth.
  • Happy and sunny Citrine 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.
  • Topaz which helps to attract abundance and overall good fortune.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Way To Happiness: Cat’s Angel Message for July 11, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


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


711:  Today we continue our acknowledgement of gratitude and of our personal journey thus far. Through the power of positive thought we are able to manifest some pretty amazing things. Sometimes the results are visible and sometimes they’re not. However, by by getting the proverbial ball rolling and our continued efforts to move forward we know that it’s simply a matter of time before we see tangible proof of the results. The Angels are letting us know how proud they are of what we have accomplished so far. The key is to gratefully acknowledge the tiny miracles when they arrive because over time they will complete the manifestation process.


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 Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward and Nike, the Greek goddess of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things we have accomplished. She tells us ” Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”


Our Sacred Stones for today Include:

  • Happy and sunny Citrine 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 and it 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.
  • Galena which helps us to stay grounded and centered. It helps to open the mind as it dissolves self-limiting thoughts from our past.
  • Kunzite can help to create a balanced partnership with the Universe as it opens your heart to receiving Divine love.

Bright blessings for a magickal day! Cat

No Expectations: Cat’s Angel Message for July 8, 2019

No Expectations: Cat’s Angel Message for July 8, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Be clear that expectations are demands. Demanding that life turn out the way we prefer is a sure path to disappointment and suffering. Happiness lies in having no expectations, and accepting life as it comes. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


78:  Over the last few months we have been working to perfect our balance. This is essential to our overall growth and has a direct effect as we create our path through life an dour own spirituality. Balance  helps us to focus and see clearly the things that truly matter and put things like material gain into perspective. Today the Universe is reminding us that balance starts with gratitude and it’s a good time to do a little path maintenance. If you’ve been slacking and letting weeds grow on your path then  it’s time to get started. It’s easier and less “stress-full” to clear as we go instead of putting it off and becoming overwhelmed. Our lives and paths are works in progress and they both require effort and elbow grease to make things happen. Use the old grade school lesson of Stop-Look- Listen to help you navigate “success-fully”.

*STOP and perform a self assessment: Are you where you need/want to be?

*LOOK forward not back.

*LISTEN to your inner guidance system.


Archangel Michael gives us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. He provides direction when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction as he shows us how to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence. The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process . Letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important. Greek goddess Persephone tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark or weedy places you often find treasures that you had forgotten. These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”


 

Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Gentle  Seraphinite helps to clears the heart chakra  opens us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life, and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path.
  • 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.
  •  Green Calcite helps us to heal on a mental level by promoting balance and communication.. It assists with the letting go and weed pulling process and invites divine flow into our lives by dissolving rigid beliefs and outdated programming.

Bright blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Accept The Challenge: Cat’s Angel Message for June 19, 2019

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance our 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.


Be curious; be adventurous; live life full-out. Accept the challenge, and reach for the brass ring. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


619:  When we are stressed or worried about material matters we tend to place our lives on hold or even go full frontal freaky. While being aware is good, allowing these things to rule your life is not. The truth is that this approach only magnifies the stress and worry you are feeling and we can become overwhelmed by it. The other unfortunate side effect is that it blocks our power of manifestation. Today the angels are reminding us to continue the work we have been doing on upgrading our thought patterns. They are asking us to get moving and enjoy life. Take a walk or go for a hike, build something, make something or just embrace your creative side. There are always options that cost us very little or nothing but a little time. We are in charge of creating our own reality so take some time and acknowledge your blessings and you will realize just how “wealthy” you really are!


Archangel Uriel is said to be one of the wisest angels. He brings intellectual information, solutions to problems great or small, and creative insight. He also helps us to gain spiritual understanding. Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed or simply express gratitude for the blessing in your life. The Ascended Master Maitreya, or the Laughing Buddha, helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter. he tells us that laughter is sacred and when the heart is alive with joy we are connected to the Infinite and filled with Nirvana-essence. Center your mind with the intent of enjoying yourself and you will find yourself centered in the moment. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process! And, the Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in it’s many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to grateful for.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:  Green Tourmaline (aka Verdelite) promotes joy of life, creativity, prosperity and abundance. it is also a healing stone that transforms negative energy into positive. Soft colored Lepidolite helps us by filtering away distractions and obsessive thinking. It soothes and heals stress and reminds us to just breathe, and sunny golden Citrine draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action by aiding in decision making and creative problem solving.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
