Spirit Library: Total Transformation of Self (a message from Kate Spreckley)

This is a big week energetically and the best thing we can do is surrender into the incoming energies. These energies are pretty firey at the moment and may bring some instability emotionally, mentally and physically. On an internal level we are moving through a period of deep healing and a clearing of old karmic cycles.

At best, I’m the lucky recipient of unfruitful advice, and at worst, I become the victim of dismissive, even contemptuous lectures.

Inner Journey: OPENING THE HEART

“Everything is made of light; everything is alive. The Great Mystery of life has little to do with intelligence. The universe is not an intellectual process. The intellect is helpful; but our hearts are the wiser partof ourselves.”
— Mellen-Thomas Benedict

Heart is a word that refers to many different levels of our being. Essentially, it is the love aspect of soul, capable of making direct, intuitive contact. Soul love is not emotional; it is highly impersonal and intelligent, capable of grasping the essenceof someone or something without any projection on our part.

Appreciation significantly turns on the heart. Appreciation is not an emotion that arises spontaneously, but a soul quality we can choose. The more often we choose to be appreciative, the easier this choice becomes and the more frequently our heart opensto give and receive love.

“If you open your heart, love opens your mind.”
— Charles John Quarto

Trust
“Trust one who has gone through it.”

-Virgil (70-19 B.C.)


Experience speaks loudly. When we seek advice, don’t we trust someone who has had experience with a subject more than one who merely has an opinion? Experience educates a person in such a way that when that person shares the experience, they can help us to learn, too

Inner Journey: A NEW LOOK AT PROBLEMS

“The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.”
— Theodore Rubin

Our lives really begin to change when we learn to shift our perspective on ‘problems.’

From a spiritual perspective, problems offer our best path to growth. Like it or not, pain gets our attention. Discomfort also challenges the ego’s perception that it is in complete control of life. This opens the door for soul’s guidance.

If we want to be rid of the problem, we need to shift from denial and resistance to accept that this situation is present. We need to be willing to truly feel our experience to allow the energy of emotions to move through.

Finally, we need to explore what belief is giving rise to our distress. When we realize the belief is faulty, our shift in perspective resolves the problem. The solution always lies within us.

“No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
— Source Unknown

Failure
“Apparent failure may hold in its rough shell the germs of a success that will blossom in time, and bear fruit throughout eternity.”

-Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, 1875


We’re learning and growing every day. We’re building on our experiences. When things happen differently than we had planned, or expected, or wanted them to, we might see it as a failure. But it’s not! There is a reason for everything, and sometimes what is an “apparent failure” is actually the beginning of something really beautiful.

Daily Good: Embracing Groundlessness

To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.

Pema Chodron –

Embracing Groundlessness

“It’s a fundamental fact of human life that we want our lives to be under control — we develop plans, goals, routines, systems, tools, schedules, structure to our lives. But while developing some structure is a very helpful thing for most of us … the truth is, there’s so much that we don’t control. Life is chaotic, out of control, shaky. It’s what Pema Chodron calls “groundlessness” — the feeling of no solid ground under our feet.” Leo Babauta shares more in this post. { read more }

Be The Change

What is your relationship to groundlessness? How might you take a fledging step towards embracing it more fully today? Check out this excerpt from Pema Chodron for more inspiration: “To Be Continually Thrown Out of the Nest.”

Inner Journey: RAISING YOUR SIGHTS

“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
— Albert Einstein

To grow in consciousness, we expand our perspectives on life. So how do we do that? The more we work with the universal — the concept of unity and wholeness, the more everything makes sense. Parts have meaning when they are understood to be parts of a bigger picture.

Consciousness is all about relationships — especially how the lower relates to the higher and how the darkness can exist within the light. Hold and experience contradictions like anger with love. Let opposites coexist in you without choosing one over the other.

“Higher consciousness, enLIGHTenment, comes from meaningful experiences and lessons passed with the understanding that there truly is only one law – the Law of Love. When one leads a life expressing this belief, the mind and heart begin to open to new realities, and other dimensional truths become known.”
— Dr. Norma Milanovich & Dr. Shirley McCune

Poetry
“Poetry is above all a concentration of the power of language, which is the power of our ultimate relationship to everything in the universe.”

-Adrienne Rich


Poetry is just one way to express our connection with the universe. Music does it with sound, art does it with color and texture, and poetry does it with language. While the description is elusive to us in prose, poetry allows us to go beyond mere description, to abandon the confines of “structure” and convey our feelings untethered.

Coffey Talk: Abracadabra!

Abracadabra is an ancient word used by magicians when they are ready to make something magical happen. It’s often accompanied by a swirl of the magic wand and followed by the wave of a scarf to reveal the magic trick. The origin of this word “abracadabra” is thought to be from the Aramaic language. Abra means “to create” and “cadabra” means “as I say.” So the parts put together translates to “I create as I say.”
Back in the Roman times doctors treated malaria sufferers with an amulet inscribed with the word “abracadabra” written in the form of a triangle. This was said to diminish the hold that the disease had over the patient. Over the years this magical word has had various uses, as it can be found on amulets in various cultures. Today the word is commonly used as an incantation by stage magicians.
In the “Harry Potter” series the expression “Avada Kedavra” is used as a spell known as the “Killing Curse.” Author J.K. Rowling said of the Curse’s etymology: “It is an ancient spell in Aramaic, and it is the original abracadabra, which means “let the thing be destroyed.” Originally, it was used to cure illness…”
Magic is all around us, whether we use the words or not. But sometimes using these “magic words” helps to remind us of the power we have, and how we can harness it. Think about how you can create as you say. Set your intention, put in the effort, and watch magic happen!

WHAT DEPLETES YOUR SOUL?

“Certain activities, attitudes, foods, and persons support the cultivation of an unconscious life. They draw us away from our center. They throw us off- balance. They deplete the soul.”

Some activities we think are restful are, in fact, draining. Set an intention to really become aware of how you feel after you’ve engaged in different activities. Solitude and awareness help us make better choices for ourselves.

Conversation

“Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.”

-Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

Conversation. Communication between people. Conversation is often called an art, because it can take talent, and skill. We know when we’ve had a good conversation – we feel like there was an exchange of energy and ideas. We feel heard, and understood. We feel like we’ve learned something, or that we’ve spent our time well. It’s more than just “small talk,” it’s something substantial – a meal rather than a snack!

Daily Tarot: The Magician

You might be set up to be the smart one and solve a problem or two for someone else. While it might be your idea of fun to perform and be clever, try to keep things simple, especially if this is a work-related issue. It will cost you little or no effort and win you a lot of admiration, and maybe some monetary reward later.

You Deserve It: Cat’s Angel Message for February 14, 2019 

February’s Theme: Trusting in the “unseen” and believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.


You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection. – The Buddha


214: Today’s message is about love, it is Valentine’s day after all!. While it’s important to show love for those around you it’s equally important to show some for yourself. Today the angels are asking us to turn any fears or worries over to them and make room for some self love. By acknowledging yourself as an awesome and amazing person (and you really are!) you are affirming that you are worthy of receiving the love and positive energies around you and being sent to you. As I said earlier this week we are quite often our own worst critics so today is your chance to jump on your own bandwagon. Be your own valentine today and do something nice for yourself and don’t forget to give yourself a BIG hug and embrace the beautiful and divine spirit that is YOU!


Archangel Jophiel teaches us the importance of slowing down so that we can enjoy the beauty that surrounds us as well as the beauty that can be found inside. The Ascended Master Maitreya brings us healing through the power of joy and laughter. Laughter releases tension, releases happy endorphins in the brain and helps us feel better about ourselves. And the Greek goddess Aphrodite teaches us to truly appreciate ourselves. She says “You must put loving self care first.By doing so you become confidently empowered and fully connected to your own divine nature.”


Our Sacred Stones for today includes the following: Rose Quartz is a true stone of unconditional love. It soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. Chalcedony helps bring mind, body, spirit and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger or self doubt. It also promotes good feeling towards self and others or try Morganite (aka Pink Beryl) to bring awareness to emotional needs or feelings that remain unfulfilled . It helps us to express them so that we can begin the healing process.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
