Daily Good: Unexpected Art in Unexpected Places

What happens when we look more closely, whether with the naked eye or equipment? Incredible details come into focus, bringing with them the possibility of beauty and interest we might never have conceived of. Imagine what would occur if you suddenly zoomed in on all those things you have lying around your house and studio or rusting outside. What new art might be inspired by such “stuff”? Mikra Knaster shares more in this piece

I am not strong because I have an iron will and Protestant work ethic.
I am not strong because I can slap a game face on and pull myself up by my bootstraps.
I am not strong because “I wish a mother f*cker would.”
I am strong because one day, I decided to love myself exactly as I am.

MNN: The red-cockaded woodpecker is making a comeback

Endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers were once common across the Southeast U.S. The mostly black-and-white birds made their homes in pine forests, drilling holes in the trees to search for insects. But with increased logging, much of their habitat was lost. As the trees diminished, so did the woodpeckers.

EarthSky News: Moon’s near side is its dark side

Tonight, while the moon is a few days shy of meeting up with the king planet Jupiter, let’s see if we can make out the dark areas on tonight’s waxing gibbous moon. These smooth, low-lying lunar plains are called maria, the plural for the word mare, the Latin word for sea. You should be able to see the darkened portions on the moon with the eye alone. The dark maria on the moon’s near side – the solidified remnants of ancient lunar seas of molten magma – make the near side of the moon reflect less light than the far side, which has fewer maria

Patheos-Pagan: Sea Charm for Protection

Last month I was out of town much of the month. Part of my travel was to San Francisco for a lovely well needed vacation. The second part was to attend my 2nd year at Pantheacon. It was a fantastic time, and I will be blogging about some of the things I learned very soon. However this blog is all about a Sea Charm for protection.

Today’s Deity: Kali

Kali comes from the Sanskrit root word Kal which means time. There is nothing that escapes the all-consuming march of time. In Tibetan Buddhism Her counterpart is male with the name Kala. Mother Kali is the most misunderstood of the Hindu goddesses. The Encyclopedia Britannica is grossly mistaken in the following quote, “Major Hindu goddess whose iconography, cult, and mythology commonly associate her with death, sexuality, violence, and, paradoxically in some of her later historical appearances, motherly love

Inner Journey:

REVIEW AND RECOMMIT

“Few people have any next, they live from hand to mouth without a plan, and are always at the end of their line.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Just think: When we are driving, we know where we want to go and we plot out our route. When we plan and prepare a meal, we follow a recipe and monitor the food as it cooks.

How much attention do we give to planning the direction of our lives?

Taking the time to review our quality of life gives us a chance to re-evaluate what we are doing and where we want to go. It lets us fine-tune our direction, to ensure we are on track for what we most want.

Stop and think about your last 6 months. What did you learn? What would you like to do differently? Where do you want to recommit?

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.”
— A. A. Milne

“Always have a plan, and believe in it. Nothing happens by accident.”
— Chuck Knox

Today’s Recipe: Creamy Garlic Sauce

This is a delicious and easy-to-make garlic sauce. It’s based on a Lebanese garlic sauce I get at one of my favourite shops, but this comes out to being about 1/5th the price (and has no chemicals)! I like using this alongside my meat dishes, as a roast veggie dip, or swiped on breads and crackers.

Uncertainty

“Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don’t let them scare you unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.”
-R.I. Fitzhenry

We live in a world of uncertainty. No matter how hard we plan or schedule or try to control things, the truth is that anything can happen, at any time! We can embrace that, and take what comes- or we can live in a state of apprehension. But we can’t change the “unknowingness” – that’s just a part of life, so we might as well enjoy it!

-Lissa Coffey

One’s True Being: Cat’s Angel Message for June 24, 2019

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance our in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Loving, hating, having expectations: all these are attachments. Attachment prevents the growth of one’s true being. – Lao Tzu


624: Everyday we are blessed with wonderful things that I like to call “Tiny Miracles“. It doesn’t have to be grand or over the top to be a miracle and often it’s the small, everyday ones that mean the most. The universe is always working behind the scenes to help us out. It’s part of human nature to want more, however in reality we have what we need. Our vision of true “wealth” lies in our perception of self. If we feel sorry for ourselves our energy takes a nosedive . However, if we hold onto our optimism and look for that “One Good Thing” then the tiny miracles are brought into crystal clear focus. Today, the Universe is reminding us that everyday life and it’s many blessings. Hold these tiny miracles close to your heart so that you draw upon them when the need arises.


Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of our limiting self beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want.  The Ascended Master Babaji teaches us that by detaching ourselves from the lure of material things we are able to draw strength from life’s simple pleasures. He also helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process . Letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important. And the Hindu Goddess Kali who shows us how to get out of our own way so that we can appreciate life’s true blessings. She tells us “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following: Sky blue Larimar which helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow. 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, and  Turquoise helps us with creative problem solving and promotes both balance and intuition. It is aligned with the Throat Chakra and teaches us to speak up for ourselves and speak our truth. Which can be a valuable asset when working with gratitude and our ability to create. Turquoise helps to purify our energy and clears away negative energy. it aids our problem solving skills and protects us against self self sabotaging thoughts and actions.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Balance happens when I invite it to happen with my intentional actions and my guided perspective. – Mary Anne Radmacher


69:  Our message and number today are reflections of this month’s theme. Balance is the key focus and it’s now time to test your skills. The goal is to create a balance between the material and the spiritual. While it’s important to spend time and energy in both areas, do your best to keep from going overboard or you’ll tip the scales.  Maintaining balance is essential to our overall well being. When we are out of balance life can be an uphill struggle so pay attention and make adjustments as needed. The angels are also reminding us that our needs are being met and maintaining balance makes this job easier for them. Release your worries and direct your focus where it needs to be today.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. He also helps us gain spiritual insight and teaches us that loving care is essential to navigating change. And the Hindu goddess Kali oversees the ending of cycles and transformations. Kali is a powerful lady and her energy is like a powerful storm that clears away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings, and the courage and motivation we need to see things through. She says:  “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following: Gentle Rhodonite helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations. Seraphinite clears the heart chakra and helps to open us to love on all levels.

It’s Our Choice: Cat’s Angel Message for May 25, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

It’s Our Choice: Cat’s Angel Message for May 25, 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!


Much in life can be seen as ugly or beautiful – it’s our choice. Why would we choose to see any part of life as ugly? – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


525:  Change is part of life. It doesn’t matter whether it happens naturally or if we initiate it ourselves there is always a feeling of uncertainty that accompanies it. One of this month’s themes is “Embracing New Adventures”. By having faith in ourselves and in the divine sources we are able to meet change with feelings of excitement. We all want to be the best that we can be and in order to do that we must be willing to move forward. Remember, changes are necessary for our overall growth (personal, mental, emotional, spiritual) and without it we are stuck in the same place. Today the angels are reminding us that during periods of change both we and our loved ones are safe and cared for. When we need help and support they are just a thought away. Opening yourself to an adventure creates positive energy that draws good things our way. Welcome them!


 Archangel Chamuel helps us to see what’s truly important to us, he also helps us to build strong foundations for our relationship with ourselves (and others) and smooths the road of our personal journey. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward.  And, the Hindu goddess Kali oversees the ending of cycles and transformations. Kali is a powerful lady and her energy is like a powerful storm that clears away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings, and the courage and motivation we need to see things through. She tells us “Dreams must be created with focus and intent. I will help you to embrace the courage and motivation that you need to see things through to a successful conclusion.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Red Tiger’s Eye which stimulates our sense of adventure by increasing our motivation, and Smoky Quartz which gently siphons away negative emotions and our fear of failure.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. – C. S. Lewis


58:  Today the Universe asking us to re-evaluate our current, overall situation. We have been focusing on letting go of what no longer serves us which also includes  all the things that are money and time related. You may be wondering “WHY” this is important. It’s important because today we are getting a green light from the universe in regards to projects and ventures that we have been considering or putting off. The angels are telling us ” Now is a great time to get started on what makes your spirit sing! We are here to help you achieve your goals!” Ask for guidance or direction and stay open to the messages that you receive. Remember to stay focused on making room for new forms of abundance and allow yourself to be excited for what lies ahead!


Archangel Raziel helps us to manifest prosperity and abundance in all forms. he also teaches us how to let go of outdated beliefs that are holding us back from realizing our full potential. The Ascended Master Solomon helps us to take what we are given and make the most of it. He teaches us how to do things more efficiently as he guides us through difficult situations. Focus and efficiency help us in our quest for personal evolution and help create the necessary stepping stones we need to move ahead.  And The Hindu goddess Kali helps to clear away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings.

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. – Carl Jung 


327:  Spring is the season of new beginnings, new growth and change, all of which are integral parts of our path. So how do you know if you are on the right path and headed in the right direction? First of all remember that everyone’s path is unique and you are truly the only one who knows what’s best for you. Walking your path involves courage, trust in Spirit, ourselves and our own inner magick. We are being reminded that our intuition is a valuable gift. We are all able to discern right from wrong, what feels right and what doesn’t and what brings us joy. Now add to that your intuitive gifts and you’ll find your path and new paths opening up before you . If you are unsure of your next “step” take some time to think about or meditate on where you want to be then move forward making the necessary adjustments as you go. Allow yourself to move forward with confidence, set you intentions high and know that the the Universe is there to help you.


The combination of Archangel Michael and Ascended Master Saint Germain provides direction, courage and motivation as we travel along our path. Both also offer protection, Michael on all levels and Germain on the psychic. Between these two they definitely have you covered. The Hindu Goddess Kali oversees the ending of cycles and personal transformation. Kali’s energy is like a powerful storm that clears away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings, and the courage and motivation we need to see things through. She says, “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”


Our Sacred Stones for today: Turquoise brings mental and spiritual clarity which is essential to staying on track with our path. Moonstone helps to combat repeated cycles and patterns that keep us from moving forward so that we can embrace change and new beginnings. Garnet brings courage and the awareness of change and how to go with the flow and Hessonite Garnet brings courage where new challenges arise.

daily Angel Message sms

Dreams and Goals: Cat’s Angel Message for March 11, 2019

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture… Do not build up obstacles in your imagination. – Norman Vincent Peale


311:  We all have dreams and goals. Many of these dreams or goals we put on hold for various reasons. Money, time, fear, other people, or we are simply not ready to move forward. Today the Universe is asking us to dust off what we have put aside and bring those things back into the light. Remember, things don’t have to be perfect in order to go for what you want and get the ball rolling. The important part is taking that first baby step. Take time to focus each day on what you want to achieve. Use powerful statements, I AM, I CAN, I WILL to give yourself a boost of positive power. The Ascended Masters tell us ” Don’t be afraid to share your dreams and goals with others. It is through sharing them that will help give you energy and opportunity.”


Archangel Raguel helps with personal empowerment and soothes the inner turmoil we can feel when deciding whether or not to “go for it” and take that first step. The Ascended Master El Morya assists us in making decisions that will enhance our lives and help us to achieve our goals by giving our faith a boost. And the Hindu goddess Kali surrounds us with the energy of transformation which helps us to let go of the old and bring in the new. She helps us find our tenacity, courage and determination so that we can make things happen. She says “Dreams must be created with focus and intent. I will help you to embrace the courage and motivation that you need to see things through to a successful conclusion.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Iolite. Also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” it is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion. It helps you stay true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others.
