Thought For The Day: May 29, 2019 ” Be a Listener”

Happy Wednesday,

Being a good listener is important and sometimes we just need a gentle reminder. A good listener doesn’t interrupt or change the topic to themselves. A good listener shares their complete attention and focus. Remember, by really listening we gain valuable insight into others and ourselves and can provide a healing experience for all involved.

Appropriate Rituals: Cat’s Angel Message for May 14, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. 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!


Don’t think you can attain total awareness and whole enlightenment without proper discipline and practice. This is egomania. Appropriate rituals channel your emotions and life energy toward the light. Without the discipline to practice them, you will tumble constantly backward into darkness. – Lao Tzu


514:  The practice of  grounding, clearing and centering is important to our emotional, mental and spiritual health. There are no rules on how often it should be done. But sometimes we need to perform this more often due to stress, major upheavals or changes. As we are currently working with changes we are being reminded that now might be a good time to engage in this self care ritual. This 3 step process helps to keep us balanced and promotes peace and harmony within ourselves and with the Universe. Now that the weather is warmer I suggest “earthing”. Going barefoot in the garden or grass is a wonderful way get grounded and to connect with the energy of Mother Earth. Allow yourself to “root” into the earth and just release, feel the sun on your face and let healing begin!


Archangel Michael can remove all psychic hooks, lines and cords that have been attached to your energy field. By simply asking him to do this is frees up your energy and promotes balance and sense of great peace. The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy create the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. laughter can also help us to clear our energy. And the Celtic goddess Nemetona teaches us that nature is the best place to recharge, she says ” I am the spirit of the sacred grove. I invite you to worship in my temple and feel the heartbeat of nature. This communion can heal a weary and battered soul and replenish your spirit with hope and divine peace.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:  Amethyst which is associated with Archangel Michael. It calms and quiets internal chatter and “monkey mind”, which in turn enables us to relax and allow the grounding and balancing to take place and Hematite which has a strong connection to the earth element and helps us stay grounded and promotes feelings of safety. Hematite also brings mental clarity through focus and concentration which is essential letting go process which accompanies change.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Healing and Help: Cat’s Angel Message for April 19, 2019

 

daily Angel Message sms

Healing and Help: Cat’s Angel Message for April 19, 2019

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


Every loving thought is true. Everything else is an appeal for healing and help, regardless of the form it takes. – A Course In Miracles


419: Within each of us is the ability to heal ourselves and others. Yes! You are qualifies on both accounts. The thing to remember about self healing is that it begins with you, and you must have the motivation and willingness to start the process and to keep it going. The Universe is reminding us that we are works in progress and are all at different levels. So don’t become discouraged if you go through a temporary setback or feel that you aren’t exactly where you think you should be. Baby steps work best and give us the option to make changes as we go. If you are working with others keep in mind that you don’t need to solve their problems for them, and that being a good listener and offering encouragement can work miracles. Don’t be stingy about helping others or yourself and the benefits will return ten fold!


Archangel Zadkiel provides emotional healing and  teaches us that true compassion and healing lies in our ability to to forgive ourselves and others. The Ascended Master Saint John of God  helps during the healing process and specializes in helping those suffering from depression and anxiety. And the Chinese goddess Kuan Yin  reminds us, “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart and spirit. Your faith is essential to many things one of which is self care. By taking care of your needs the doors to self empowerment will open for you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include, Moonstone which can assist emotional healing by helping to stabilize the emotions and draw out old emotional patterns. Sometimes as a healer you need a little help after working with others. Lapis Lazuli which helps us to confront the truth of a situation and promotes acceptance of the lesson involved. It promotes clarity and help us express our opinions in a positive manner and teaches us the value of being an active listener, and gentle Prehnite promotes unconditional love and helps you to clear your energy when you need it most.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: Monthly Horoscope: This March Will Be Supercharged With Badass Feminine Energy

March on, people! Pisces season isn’t quite as freewheeling and flowy this year. In fact, the tides are turning—and yes, we are also talking about the 660-mile iceberg that’s breaking off the Antarctic shelf…as well as the fact that it’s Women’s History Month during one of the fiercest female-powered eras in decades. With the north node in Cancer, the divine feminine sign, for the first time in 18 years, we’re all feeling a little “notorious RBG” right now!

Daily Good: Reconnecting to the Soil, to Heal Ourselves and the Planet

“For thousands of years Black people have had a sacred relationship with soil that far surpasses our 246 years of enslavement and 75 years of sharecropping in the United States. For many, this period of land-based terror has devastated that connection. We have confused the subjugation our ancestors experienced on land with the land herself, naming her the oppressor and running toward paved streets without looking back. We do not stoop, sweat, harvest, or even get dirty because we imagine that would revert us to bondage.” More in this thought-provoking piece.

Part of the work of healing our relationship with soil is unearthing and relearning the lessons of soil reverence from the past

EarthSky News: Use Big Dipper to locate Hunting Dogs

Tonight, or any March evening, look for the Big Dipper in the northeast sky. This star pattern – one of the most noticeable from Northern Hemisphere locations – is part of the constellation Ursa Major, the Greater Bear. And, if you can find the Big Dipper, you can also find two Hunting Dogs seen by the ancient stargazers to be nipping at the Bear’s heels. The Hunting Dogs are a separate constellation: tiny Canes Venatici.

Patheos-Pagan: Good Judgment? or Nonjudgmental? Let’s Unpack This… 

The progressive folks I know often say they are “nonjudgmental” in an attempt to illustrate how accepting of diversity we are, and that we have compassion for our fellow man, no matter what. Witches call that unconditional Divine Love. Yet, we also regularly extol the virtues of showing “good judgment” in our lives, as a means of navigating our way through a successful life

WHAT IS YOUR DESTINY?

“The significant business of your life is alive and well, awaiting discovery, within your very soul. You and I were born to come into ourselves as complete and distinctive persons. Accepting this, we build a valuablelife.”
— Marsha Sinetar

What is the significant business of your life? What is your purpose? Andrew Schneider says that purpose “is more than just having a direction. It is about one’s place in the universe. It is the journey of finding that place and being there and living fullywhatever that place is. It is your own unique place that nobody else has, had, or will have.”

How would you describe your place in the universe?

“We become powerful in the face of our fears when we have a sense that we make a difference in this world. Affirmations of purpose communicate the truth that we are all meaningful participants in this Universe and thatwe are worthy of giving and receiving love. Some affirmations of purpose are:

– I know that I count and I act as though I do.
– I spread warmth and love everywhere I go.
– I am a healing force in the Universe.”
— Susan Jeffers

“The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”
— Joseph Addison

This is my mother’s apple cake recipe that I’ve made my own. I now make it for her to treat her like royalty (it resembles a crown)! The added applesauce not only enhances the apple flavour, but also makes it very moist. The almond flour gives it some weight and character. This is one of my favourite cakes. Thanks, Queen Mum! 😉

Giving

A man there was, though some did count him mad,
The more he cast away, the more he had.”

-John Bunyan (1628-1688)

So many people have said the same thing: when you give, you receive. Whatever it is that you want in your life, give that. Somehow, it comes back to you, in a bigger and better way. Somehow, what you are looking for finds you. You have to put it out there; it has to circulate. Rather than hold on to something, set it free. Let it live, let it breathe, let it grow. Giving is good for everyone.

Daily Good: The Universe as an Infinite Storm of Beauty

Taking a walk in a quiet woods, gazing up into the night sky, or even walking in a crowd in a large city somewhere in the world, we may find ourselves having transcendent moments along with John Muir. These moments awaken us to our place within the universe at the same time that they disorient us as we realize how small we are. In this piece, writer Maria Popova helps us to see through John Muir’s eyes that our smallness is what connects us so universally to everything else that is. In being humbled, no longer do we get lost in the illusion that humans dominate creation. With Muir as our guide, we can realize that we are joined to everything else in creation.

Fortunately, there are several few herbal allies that are effective at reducing congestion and cough we can turn to.

Inner Journey:

FEELING TRAPPED? SLOW DOWN!

“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.”
— Natalie Goldberg

Feeling trapped in some way? Give yourself space. Space to do nothing but breathe. To intentionally relax those tight muscles. To just for a few precious minutes, let it all go.

The world will keep turning if you tune out for a short while. And your world will begin to recover its balance.

“It’s important to be heroic, ambitious, productive, efficient, creative, and progressive, but these qualities don’t necessarily nurture soul. The soul has different concerns, of equal value: downtime for reflection, conversation, and reverie; beauty that is captivating and pleasuring; relatedness to the environs and to people; and any animal’s rhythm of rest and activity.”
— Thomas Moore

What Lies Within: Cat’s Angel Message for January 9, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

What Lies Within: Cat’s Angel Message for January 9, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


19:  Today our message focuses on two things, self help and service.  The Universe is reminding us that our angels and helpers are here to help us create a better life for ourselves and for others. These two things are often connected because as we help ourselves we are also helping those closest to us. Remember that being of service does not always mean  offering our time, and energy to the community or to the world. While this path is the right one for some it’s not true for everyone, although it can be very fulfilling. The truth is that before we can help others was must first be willing to help ourselves. Through our own actions we find ourselves leading by example. This shows others that positive changes can be made. It provides inspiration to those who need it and  everyday whether we are aware of it or not, we make a difference in someone’s life in a positive way. Today the angels are asking us to share your optimistic glow while projecting good vibes to those around you.


Archangel Zadkiel teaches us that true compassion and healing lies in our ability to to forgive ourselves and others. This is one of the best self healing practices and gifts that we can give ourselves.  Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. And the Roman Goddess Venus 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 Stone for today is Desert Rose (Selenite). These beautiful stone “flowers” help to increase our understanding of our own personal value in the universal plan. It dissolves self imposed programming and help us replace it with something more positive which inspires loving well being.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
