Burnout can be tricky: Not only can it manifest in a multitude of ways, both physical and mental, but it can be difficult to identify burnout before it becomes severe. It can be rather frustrating; after all, the key to managing burnout is to prevent the onset in the first place—aka, to combat the stress before it becomes debilitating.

Interdependence
“There’s a thread that binds all of us together, pull on one end of the thread, the strain is felt all down the line.”

-Rosamond Marshall, 1943

 
We have an inherent obligation to help out. When someone is in pain, that hurt affects more than just that one person. By reaching out, by showing compassion, by doing whatever we can to ease the burden, we make it better for all of us. Love lifts, love heals, love lightens. Whether it’s right here at home, or across the world, there are so many opportunities to make a difference.

Thought For The Day: June 9, 2020 “Things We Have Outgrown”

Happy Tuesday,

Today’s thought is about growth. Problems are like clothing, they fit for a while and then we outgrow them. If you look back to 6 months ago, last year, or even 5 years ago you will see that your priorities have changed and the things that were problems then are no longer an issue. You have moved past them, outgrown them and they may even seem silly now. Maturity teaches us that things will most often work themselves out or turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

Happy Tuesday,

Life is both a challenge and an adventure. Yesterday we talked about belief and how it changes us for the better. Today we are being asked to take up the challenge and continue to plant the seeds that will help us grow and move forward. Remember that things will get better and when they do you will also be a better version of yourself. One who is ready to step into a new future.

1. A sense of inability to act in a given situation, usually with regard to love. If the paralysis was total, then the dream may fear taking a certain action. It could be whether or not to declare his love, propose marriage, or break up. If the paralysis was only partial, sexual inhibitions could be the problem.
2. The dreamer may feel inhibited or blocked from moving ahead with plans for major changes in her life due to circumstances beyond her control.

Inner Journey:

SPEAK KINDLY TO YOURSELF

“What is this self inside us, this silent observer, Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us, And urge us on to futile activity, And in the end, judge us still more severely, For the errors into which his own reproaches drove us?”
— T. S. Eliot

How do you talk to yourself? Would you talk that way to anyone else?

Our thoughts create our reality. How do you typically think about yourself? Do you berate yourself for being stupid, sloppy, forgetful or insensitive? Do you watch yourself with interest, respect and compassion? Stay alert to your self-talk and let go of judgments that don’t serve you.

“Self-acceptance is my refusal to be in an adversarial relationship to myself.”
— Nathaniel Branden

Animals

“Some animals, like some men, leave a trail of glory behind them. They give their spirit to the place where they have lived, and remain forever a part of the rocks and streams and the wind and sky.”

-Marguerite Henry, 1953

My favorite movie in 2003 was “Seabiscuit.” The horse was as much a character in that movie as the people that his human co-stars portrayed. You could feel Seabiscuit’s love and determination shine. He faced hard times, and overcame tragedy, and contributed so much to the people who came into his life. It’s an amazing story, and one that shows the important lessons we can learn from animals.

The Capacity To Receive: Cat’s Angel Message for February 28, 2020

The Capacity To Receive: Cat’s Angel Message for February 28, 2020

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


Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it. – Rabindranath Tagore


228:  As the month winds down we are being reminded that it’s more than okay to allow yourself to receive the gifts and blessings that the Universe has to offer. Sometimes we get so caught up in giving to others that when it becomes our turn to receive we kind of freak out and think or say something like ” Oh no, that’s okay!” or “I don’t deserve that!” By turning away good things that are offered we can slip out of balance and find our energy bottled up. But when we allow ourselves to receive with grace and gratitude doors open up to an amazing flow of abundance and growth. Allow yourself to receive today and allow this energy to come full circle.


Today’s Spiritual 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 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 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.”


Our Sacred Stones for today 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 brings mind, body, spirit, and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger or self-doubt. It also promotes good feelings towards self and others.

Unakite. This green and pink stone helps us to see blocks that we have erected within ourselves and then provides valuable insights on removing them so that we can move forward. It helps us to appreciate the present moment and works with both base and heart chakras.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Inner Journey:

GROWING OURSELVES

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

We are all on a life-long journey. It is a search for who we are and why we are here. It is a journey that expands our consciousness.

There is an urge within each of us to move forward in life. It is an urge to become more whole, to find more meaning, and eventually to help others. It is human nature to strive for a sense of well-being.

We all go through the same growth cycles, though our experiences may appear entirely different. By understanding the process of personal and spiritual growth, we can work more effectively with the process, instead of fighting and resisting it.

“We can learn to be the catalysts for our own change.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

Winter

“The cold was our pride, the snow was our beauty. It fell and fell, lacing day and night together in a milky haze, making everything quieter as it fell, so that winter seemed to partake of religion in a way no other season did, hushed, solemn.”

Patricia Hampl, 1981

Snow seems to make everything seem to clean, so pure, so peaceful. Utah is one area where they get a lot of snow in the winter. The kids love it because they can go skiing and snowboarding. But every time I go to visit it amazes me just how different the landscape is from season to season. It’s really a different world in the winter. You have to move more slowly, to be safe. You have to take more time getting places. The snow makes you stop to think, you can’t help it.

Change = Growth: Cat’s Angel Message for January 25, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Change = Growth: Cat’s Angel Message for January 25, 2020

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


Be Your Own Personal Greatest Hero. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


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 the changes that we create with the intention of making things better for ourselves. When we make requests of the angels and the Universe remember to keep your intentions clear. Be super 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!


Our Spiritual Guides for today 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. Uriel also helps us to gain spiritual understanding and creative insight. 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 El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen.

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!”


Our Sacred Stones for today 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.

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.

Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships that are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Jan. 9, 2020 “Be A Tree”

Happy Thursday,

We can learn a lot from nature, and trees are a great example. Trees are adaptable and flexible. Their roots hold the tree strong during times of stress or hardship. During a storm, a tree may lose a branch, one that may have been weakened and is no longer needed and they shed leaves, discarding what they have outgrown and no longer beneficial. The tree accepts these changes as part of life and continues to grow.  See yourself as a tree. Your roots holding you steady, learn to weather storms with flexibility and learn to shed that which no longer serves you. Embrace growth and thrive. Reach for the sky, the stars and for the mightiest you!

MBG: Sex, Psychics & Kundalini Kriyas: 8 Ways To Stay Inspired During Colder Seasons

If you’re anything like me, you might tend to get very uninspired in the wintertime. I crave blankets, sleeping in, warmth, and Harry Potter movies as the days start to get shorter. Around this time of year, I also hear a lot from my clients that they’re lacking inspiration too. People who love their work or relationships or travel seem to simply lose the gusto for it.

Daily Good: Between Worlds

What is it like to be a living member of a dying community? Climate change is making this an increasingly common reality. Isle de Jean Charles, a slip of land off the coast of Louisiana is one such place. This island is home to a hundred or so people, members, mostly, of a Native American tribe called the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw–the BCC for short. For eight generations, the people of Isle de Jean Charles thrived, eating the bounty of the land and the sea: shrimp, crawfish, fish, and oysters, as well as plants they wild-harvested and grew in gardens. The tribe was so self-sufficient that when the oil and gas companies began prospecting nearby, they were surprised to discover people. But global warming is causing their land to disappear from under their feet. Anya Groner visited this magical place and shares her journey into the mystery of trying to stay grounded as a people while facing the inevitable loss of a homeland. { read more }

MNN: When honeybees get stuck in water, they create their own waves and ‘surf’ to safety

Bees need water just like the rest of us. A honeybee might fly several miles to find a good water source, both for drinking and to help regulate the temperature of her hive. Sometimes, though, a thirsty honeybee gets more than she bargained for, and instead of water ending up in the bee, the bee ends up in the water.

This Sacred Earth
I have told the story many time of the Indian lady who ran a hardware stall at a local indoor market near us. She said her life seemed to revolve around that stall. It took up so much of her time, so much in fact that she rarely had time to visit her temple for worship.

Inner Journey:

LOVE YOUR SHADOWS

Each of us has characteristics we define as ‘good’ and those we define as ‘bad.’ The parts of ourselves that we continually reject want to be acknowledged and loved. Until we honour these aspects, they will continue to assert themselves. They will do whatever they can to get our attention.

What aspects of yourself do you reject?

Take a few moments to open to the parts of yourself that you do not love. See each one honestly for what it is. Explore the wounds and the motives that gave rise to its condition. Love a wounded part of yourself and it will heal.

“Strangely enough we strengthen love in ourselves when we raise into consciousness the shadow side of our lives. Conversely, when we keep negative feelings out of sight, they smother the love that seems to lie deeper and closer to the real self. This is probably why there is so much pain in not loving. The life that is not able to express the love which is so integral to it grows deformed.”
— Elizabeth O’Connor

A Note from the Universe

Many come close yet few dare, so boldly, to live without judgment, to give without expecting, and to love for no reason.

We call it a spiritual trifecta.

Past

“Your whole past was but a birth and a becoming.”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944)

We know that the nature of life is to grow. And so here we are. And we couldn’t have gotten here without everything that has happened in the past. It is the same way for society as it is for individuals. Whatever has happened throughout history has had an impact on how we have grown and changed as a nation, and as a planet. We’re all connected. And the more that we grow as individuals, the greater the impact will be on our communities and our countries.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Sun

Little or nothing will slow you down or be daunting to you today. You have so much inner strength, and physical strength, too, that people will have trouble keeping up with you. Do something special today, or perhaps excel at something significant and challenging that will be easily within your grasp. You may find out later that you were dazzling and that you inspired several people to more energetically pursue their passions.
