Patheos-Pagan: The Witch and the Wild Rose

The Wild Rose’s botanical name is “species rose”, which in essence is a species that develops naturally with no help from man. A true flower of the wild, which is one of the many reasons I adore these magickal hedges. Originating mostly from Europe as well as the Orient, roses have been cultivated for over 5000 years.

Inner Journey: 

LIFE COMES WITH PROBLEMS

“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
— Fr. Alfred D’Souza

Life always brings problems. We really can’t live without them.

And so it helps to shift our perspective. We can stop trying to avoid the problems. We can stop feeling victimized by what’s happening. Instead, we can consciously work with the challenge of the moment to learn more about ourselves and the world. When we make this shift in attitude, we discover ourselves to be strong and powerful.

“Every lesson is a widening and deepening of consciousness. It is a stretching of the mind beyond its conceptual limits and a stretching of the heart beyond its emotional boundaries. It is a bringing of unconscious material into consciousness, a healing of past wounds, and a discovery of new faith and trust.”
— Paul Ferrini

Awareness
“It’s exhilarating to be alive in a time of awakening consciousness; it can also be confusing, disorienting, and painful.”

-Adrienne Rich

Our spiritual pursuits open up our awareness to everything – and sometimes that can be difficult when emotions come to the surface, and stress bubbles up and away. When we know that this is all temporary, and a part of the process, we can observe its happening without allowing it to get us caught up in the drama of it all. We can focus on the big picture – we can see what is truly important, truly real. It is exhilarating, and liberating!

-Lissa Coffey

A Plentiful Harvest: Cat’s Angel Message for September 22, 2017

Autumn Angel

A Plentiful Harvest: Cat’s Angel Message for September 22, 2017  

September’s Theme:  Life Purpose.  Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t. Many of us fall into the second category and that’s OK!  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you. Life Purpose can be very simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better.  Sometimes the small things are the best!

The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.  ~William Blake

922: Today is the Autumn Equinox, Mabon or Harvest Home to those of us who follow the pagan traditions. Gratitude is our key word and it goes hand in hand with this seasonal celebration. . Gratitude works hand in hand with faith, the stronger our faith the more we manifest and the more we have to be grateful for. This is a good time to perform a self check and think about the gifts and miracles that have blessed your life so far this year. By looking back we can see how far we have come from spring and the thought seeds that we planted at that time. Make sure to nurture the “new growth” and to harvest what’s ready now. Embrace your blessings with a grateful heart and affirm that you have faith that they will continue to be abundant in your life.

Today we honor the goddess aspects of the Sacred Feminine. They are the Earth Mothers and Harvest goddesses that are associated with this harvest festival (Demeter, Persephone, Pomona)  The Ascended Master Krishna can also be honored today as we ask him to help us see life’s blessings more clearly. Our Sacred Stone for today is Larimar. This stone helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Seeds Are The  Solution: Cat’s Angel Message for August 28, 2017

The Seeds Are The  Solution: Cat’s Angel Message for August 28, 2017  

August Theme: Prosperity- Abundance- Creative Problem Solving 

Every problem has in it the seeds of it’s own solution. If you don’t have any problems, you don’t get any seeds.  ~Norman Vincent Peale

828: The Pagan theme for the month of August is the first harvest. This started on the first with the festival of Lughnasadh and it applies to today’s number as well. It’s time to start harvesting the seed thoughts we planted a few months back. These thoughts planted to generate new areas of personal growth. if you have been tending and nurturing these “seeds” you will find that some are ready to harvest. However, some may not be quite ready and will require more time and care. Don’t worry we will have the month of September to apply finishing touches. Today the angels are reminding us to have faith in ourselves and in the abundance of the Universe. When we gratefully acknowledge our “Tiny Miracles” and do our part the Universe steps in and helps us out. Give yourself a BIG hug for all the wonderful things that you have accomplished so far this year!

Call on the Celtic Sun god Lugh, the patron of the first harvest,  to assist you. His fiery energy inspires new growth and sheds light in areas of darkness. Lugh helps us to find creative solutions to problems and fills us with a sense of divine magick and protection. Try using Nebula Stone to help you see clearly the value in everything around you as well as promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.

Blessings for a magickal day!

The Flow of Abundance: Cat’s Angel Message for July 28, 2017 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Flow of Abundance: Cat’s Angel Message for July 28, 2017 

July’s Theme: Life Path – Divine Guidance – Action

In our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the  abundance of the universe circulating in our lives. ~ Deepak Chopra

728: In the past we’ve talked about abundance and how it comes in many forms. The key is acknowledging what we have because that opens new avenues. 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 of life!

Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews. If you ask him he can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently. Use Green Calcite to help divine flow in your life.

Blessings for a magickal day!
