Spirit Library: Questioning Everything (a message from Kate Spreckley)

Humanity is collectively moving from an unconscious state of awareness and into a conscious awakening. This is a dramatic process where our human consciousness shifts and we become acutely aware of the difference between our soul reality and our outer physical reality.

“I can change. I can live out my imagination instead of my memory. I can tie myself to my limitless potential instead of my limiting past.”
— Stephen Covey

I was eating lunch with a friend who shared that she disliked one of the vegetables on my plate and hadn’t eaten any since childhood. I suggested that sometimes our tastes change and maybe she could give it another try. She did, and to her surprise, sheenjoyed it. Her world became a little richer as she opened to new possibilities.

Is there something in your life you might be willing to give another try?

“Change. It has the power to uplift, to heal, to stimulate, surprise, open new doors, bring fresh experience and create excitement in life. Certainly it is worth the risk.”
— Leo Buscaglia

Daily Wisdom
January 14, 2021

“Speech is a mirror of the soul; as a man speaks, so is he.”

-Publius Syrus (85-43 B.D.)

I think this is really quite interesting. The words we speak come from within us. We think them, we articulate them. They come up with our breath, through our throats and over our tongues. They have an impact on us. It is important to speak truthfully, kindly, and with clarity. Are the words we use “nutritious” – or are they “toxic?” What are we feeding ourselves?

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Devil

There may be very little that you can change or have much effect on today. It may not exactly feel like the day has been fated to be a certain way, but you may have that suspicion at times. You can fit in with whatever happens and get some satisfaction and success anyway. Someone who usually argues against you may turn around and agree with you about something important.

Harnessing the Solstice Energy: Cat’s Angel Message for June 21, 2018

Harnessing the Solstice Energy: Cat’s Angel Message for June 21, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.

At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. Gary Zukov

621: Today is the Summer Solstice (aka Litha or Midsummer) which makes today the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. This Solstice packs some pretty powerful energy and by  tapping into this power source we can boost our own powers of manifestation. The key is to believe in yourself as well as the creator. The stronger our belief is the more we are able to clearly see the blessings and miracles around us. Even the small everyday ones become clearer, which are more important by far. The ancient Romans honored the goddess Fortuna on this day and this is a good time to acknowledge the blessings you have as well as the ones that are coming.

Today try working with the deities associated with the sun and the Summer Solstice like Sulis Minerva, Apollo, Horus, Athena, Kali and Isis. The ancient Romans also honored the goddess Fortuna on this day and it’s a great time to acknowledge your blessings as well as your power as a creator.

Sacred Stones for the Summer Solstice include:

Amber to enhance your earth connection and to promote grounding. It is also a great healing stone (it’s actually tree resin) that helps to remove energetic impurities from the body.

Jade helps us to understand that you are spiritual being on the very human journey we call life. it stimulates knowledge and ideas.

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’s Eye works with the energies of both earth and sun, it also helps with grounding while drawing spiritual energies to earth.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Welcome To The Adventure: Cat’s Angel Message for May 5, 2018

Welcome To The Adventure: Cat’s Angel Message for May 5, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.

Life is a grand adventure – enjoy the ride. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie

55:  When Change shows at our house in his beat up truck and tells us to get in you better buckle up because we’re going for a ride baby! To clear the way and make things easier start by letting go of anything that is no longer working for you or that you have outgrown. (People, activities, thoughts, old resentments etc.) Give these things over to the angels, then visualize packing up all the old things into a bag and tossing it off a bridge. I kid you not this visualization is truly empowering! The clearing away process creates the necessary space for better things. Remember, you deserve good things and life is too short to hang on to things that no longer bring you peace and joy!

Our helper’s today include the Greek God Apollo who helps us heal all emotional wounds and shows us how to replace unforgiveness with compassionate understanding. Archangel Jeremiel oversees life changes and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve spiritual growth to assist in letting go and the Hindu God Ganesh removes all obstacles from our path so that we can move forward.

Our Sacred Stones are Amethyst which promotes clear decision making and realistic goals while helping us move forward and create new beginnings. Selenite heals negativity and fear while cleansing your entire being, it also promotes Divine communication and Labradorite which is a companion crystal to change. It gives strength and helps us to persevere.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Looking Within: Cat’s Angel Message for January 25, 2018

Looking Within: Cat’s Angel Message for January 25, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

Your visions will become clear only
when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes.
– Carl Jung

125: Changes are an ongoing part of life, some we initiate for ourselves while others hit us out of the blue.  Our focus today is on changes that we initiate.  When we make requests of the angels and the Universe it’s remember to keep your intentions clear. Be specific as this helps the Universe direct the right opportunity your way and provides a powerful focus point for you as well. Today, the angels are telling you that your prayers have been heard. Their message is ” Change = Growth” and the things that are happening for you now will be good for you and those around you. Turn your fear and worry over to us to deal with so that your focus remains uninterrupted.” Keep in mind that the answers and opportunities you seek can come from both expected and unexpected sources so don’t cut yourself short by looking in only one direction!

Keep working with Archangel Michael today.  He gives us courage and direction during times of change as well as offering protection. The Greek sun god Apollo assists us by easing stress during times of change and shows us the path  to creating a happy ending that benefits our situation, wear the colors of gold and yellow today to connect with his sunny energy, and the Ascended Master Buddha helps us find balance and maintain it so that we can find our peaceful center.

Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Citrine to help balance our energy and which takes negative energy and cleanses it , turning it into something more positive.

Golden Calcite promotes an optimistic mindset as it clears away self limiting beliefs,

Tiger’s Eye helps to express our intentions clearly by showing us the difference between wishful thinking and what we really NEED.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
