Inner Journey: A NEW LOOK AT OLD ATTITUDES

“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

Speech
“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 coffeytalk.com

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.

Inner Journey: STAR CONNECTIONS

“The interchangeability of matter and spirit means the starlit magic of the outermost life of our universe becomes the soul-light magic of the innermost life of our self. The energy of the stars becomes us. We becomethe energy of the stars. Stardust and spirit unite and we begin: One with the universe. Whole and holy.”
— Dennis J. Kucinich

Ponder the spectre of yourself as one human being in the over six billion people on Earth. See Earth as one tiny planet in a galaxy of billions of stars, and that galaxy as just one of billions of galaxies in our expanding universe. We are so minute as tobe nonexistent. And yet, we have the power to visualize, to imagine the entirety of the cosmos.

In your journal, write about the paradox of being both microscopic and immense.

“I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if our spirituality were to come from looking not just into infinity but very closely at the world around us — and appreciating its depth and divinity.”
— Thomas Moore

“I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”

Goals
“An ignorance of means may minister
To greatness, but an ignorance of aims
Makes it impossible to be great at all.”

-Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1851


A lot of times we hear stories about entrepreneurs who say they didn’t know just how they were going to make their business work, they just knew they were going to do it. They had a goal, and worked toward that goal diligently. When we keep our “eye on the prize” it’s easier to let obstacles fall by the wayside. We become creative in our quest.

Daily Tarot: The Emperor

Kindness will take you very far today. It’s not a show of weakness or inferiority to engage in that random act of kindness. Think of it as acting out of generosity of spirit. The bigger your heart today, the more respect and cooperation will come your way. Make sure your kindness is genuine and from a genuine place. Then you’re virtually unassailable.

1224: Every day we receive guidance from the Universe and today is a lesson in how well we pay attention and how we put that information to use. Our faith is a key component when working with divine guidance. This will come in handy today as we continue to create positive change in our lives. The Universe is letting you know that you are making good progress. However, if you have been dragging your feet and fighting the necessary changes (due to fear and lack of confidence) then the Universe wants you to know that there is still time to make things happen.

924: As we work on our personal, spiritual and life goals we will find that faith in ourselves is one of our biggest assets. The other important asset is our support system. Our friends, family and Divine sources play a major role in our success. Today the Universe is sending a gentle reminder that your support system is here and that you are surrounded with both supportive and healing energies. This will be important for the changes headed your way or that you are experiencing now. The key here is to allow these things to happen naturally, so don’t force things to happen or struggle to stop them. These changes will benefit you and help to shape your goals and dreams. Just go with the flow and have faith in yourself and in the Universal powers and get ready to reap the rewards.

However, there are times when we get busy and ignore the information sent our way. Today, the Angels are asking us to pay attention. Spirit speaks to us through repetitive thoughts and ideas. They come through music, from the people around us and from visual clues. Be aware of your surroundings and your reactions to them and listen for your inner voice. The information that you receive will help you to improve something in your life so stay open and focused on the present. Don’t allow yourself to tune out or turn off as you may miss something important.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Uriel can help us to overcome obstacles by showing us where the solutions are that will lead to our success. He provides us with additional information that we need to make the most informed decisions we can. No problem is too great or too small for him to assist with.

Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed, or simply express gratitude for the blessings taking place in your life.

 

The Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter, this gives us a clear perspective and keeps our energy flowing. 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!

 

The Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills so that we get the information we need without the unnecessary backwash. She teaches us how to trust in ourselves and honor our own wisdom. By following our inner guidance system we are setting ourselves on the path of authenticity and personal truth. Allow yourself to be a “huntress” like Artemis and track down your inner power. She tells us, “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Trusting Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for May 10, 2020

May Theme: This month brings changes and growth into your life.  Be willing to embrace them and allow things to happen naturally as this will help us focus on bigger and better things!


A man who doesn’t trust himself can never really trust anyone else. – Cardinal De Retz


510: In order to embrace our personal evolution and create the life we want we must be true to ourselves and trust in our own inner wisdom. Often this means that we must step out of our comfort zones to make things happen. The creation process is more apparent during periods of growth and change so it’s important to pay attention to the messages and guidance that we receive. Remember that this information comes from many sources (the people around us, nature, dreams, intuition, or from the universe.) and the signs are visible to those who pay attention. If you feel strongly directed to act then follow your heart and move forward. Likewise, if it doesn’t feel right or makes you uncomfortable step back and examine your reaction and feelings before making a decision. If you are unsure of what to do, or the best way to proceed ask for help. Divine guidance combined with your intuition will never steer you wrong.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Michael teaches us that through compassion and commitment to our beliefs we can lead effectively through example.

She tells us “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making. Amethyst crystal is used by Tibetan monks to honor Buddha. If you’re feeling crafty make yourself a set of prayer beads to honor him and use for meditation (these are great for Archangel Michael as well).

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.

Black Obsidian. This stone not only protects it also helps to bring negative energy to the surface where it can be dispelled and provides support during times of change. It takes the “things” that we’ve hidden and composts them into positive soil to support out new growth.

Spend time every day listening to what your muse is trying to tell you. – Saint Bartholomew
