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

Daily Tarot: The Star

You can make today memorable purely by the strength of your unfailing hope for all things to work out for the best. No matter how muddled the events of the day, how confused or how many mixed messages people give you, especially at work, your innate hopeful spirit will cut through most of the mist and give you good results. Look forward to many satisfying encounters, however little or much gets done.

Elephant Journal: Remember This when you feel Fat, Unlovable & Not Good Enough.

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

Falling Into Place: Cat’s Angel Message for April 21, 2019

 

daily Angel Message sms

Falling Into Place: Cat’s Angel Message for April 21, 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.


When I’m trusting and being myself… everything in my life reflects this by falling into place easily, often miraculously. – Shakti Gawain


421:  Life’s path offers us many things and takes us in many directions. Some of them bring us happiness and joy while others cause us pain and self doubt. Today, our angels are encouraging us to step up and be our own cheerleader. While it’s nice to have someone else pat us on the back and say “Good Job!” our self confidence benefits more from the Divine voice inside. That voice offers us nudges of encouragement as well as guidance. Listen to that voice and allow yourself to receive the mental hugs it has to offer. Remember to use your I AM and I CAN thinking to boost courage and confidence. Remember, you are a creator worthy of accomplishing great things!


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 Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He helps us when dealing with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path. And, The Egyptian goddess Maat helps us to think clearly when we are confused or filled with indecision. She helps us to see the truth behind all situations, other people and in ourselves while promoting integrity and order. Maat also protects us against deceit and manipulation. She says, “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Carnelian which increases our self esteem and teaches us to walk in our own power. Labradorite to relieve fear and insecurity caused by old hurts and disappointments. It also strengthens our faith as it removes the projections of others that are holding us back and  Golden Ray Calcite boosts our creativity and mental energy as it transforms our self limiting beliefs into a positive self image.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Taking the Risk: Cat’s Angel Message for November 5, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Taking the Risk: Cat’s Angel Message for November 5, 2018 

November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts.  Remember that POSITIVE opens and draws and NEGATIVE closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


Could you risk believing that everything will unfold just fine if you completely let go of all concern about everything else, and simply are here, now – if only for a moment? – Dmitri Bilgere


115:  Initiating change in our lives is an ongoing endeavor and it’s important to support our goals and thought seeds with positive intentions. Today’s number, 5 , relates to changes and transformations making this an excellent day to initiate something new or tend what we’re currently working on. Take time each day to affirm what you want and where you want to be, remember that “I Am ” and “I Will” are powerful motivators that will help to boost your energy levels. Remember that change should not be feared but seen as a new adventure. One that will enrich your life in ways that will benefit your growth (personal, spiritual, emotional). Today the Universe is reminding us not to force these changes, simply get them started then  allow them to grow and unfold naturally as it makes for a much smoother transition.


Archangel Jeremiel gently helps us to let of the worry and fear that can accompany change and thoughts of what the future holds. The Ascended Master Saint Germain  surrounds us with loving protection. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. And the Egyptian goddess Isis reminds us to  “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inward journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!


Our Sacred Stones for today are Iolite which helps to ease the change process and Cerussite promotes understanding of the changes we initiate while keeping us grounded.

Just Do Your Best: Cat’s Angel Message for September 17, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Just Do Your Best: Cat’s Angel Message for September 17, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


Simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret. – don Miguel Ruiz


917: Today is about affirmations. While I’m not a fan of the whole affirmation thing, I AM a fan of “self lifting” phrases like “I CAN” and “I AM”. These phrases are some of the best words of encouragement you can gift to yourself. They ignite our courage, and determination which is essential to making forward progress in our lives. They can also help us in regards to our life purpose. Remember, your life purpose revolves around things you love or feel strongly about. The spark you create with self lifting thinking helps to promote a successful attitude and helps us to move forward on our path. You are capable of manifesting great and wonderful things and it’s a good time to embrace your power and see where it leads you!


The Egyptian god Horus can help open our minds eye and heals the fear we may have about trusting in ourselves and our own wisdom. The Ascended Masters Jesus and Moses are both adept at helping us to access Divine Guidance and Archangel Michael helps us to see our own worth and provides courage and confidence.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Lapis Lazuli. This deep blue stone helps to open the Third Eye Chakra (mind’s eye) and stimulates our personal power. It also harmonizes our energies on all levels as this balance and strengthens our knowledge of self.

Grounded and Focused: Cat’s Angel Message for July 21, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Grounded and Focused: Cat’s Angel Message for July 21, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


The simple things in life ground me and keep me focused so I’m able to do a good job with what is in front of me. – Kevin Eubanks


721:  Our Life Path is filled with a broad spectrum of things that are designed to help us on our way. These things range from happiness and love to great sorrow and self doubt. Along the way we meet people that encourage us and offer support. It’s nice to have someone else pat us on the back and say “Good job!”,  however we also benefit from the divine voice inside us that offers encouragement. Today, the Angels are asking us to step up and be our own cheerleader. Listen to that inner voice and allow yourself to receive the mental hugs and kudos that it offers. Use the “I AM and I CAN” thinking to promote your self confidence and courage. Remember that you ARE a creator and are worthy of great things and that your success and well being are yours to to nurture to full growth!


Archangel Michael guides us along our path by helping us to find the courage to keep moving in a positive direction. Ascended Master Buddha reminds us that through balance and moderation we are able to see our next steps more clearly and  the Egyptian Goddess  Isis teaches us how to reclaim who we are as she fills us with graceful energy and strength. Her message today is  “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inward journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of your grand celebration of your life!”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Carnelian. This orange- red stone is used for motivation and increased creativity. It also helps boost  self esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices.
