MBG: These Caffeine Alternatives Will Give You A Natural Energy Boost

We all have our morning routines. Part autopilot, part ritual, what we do each morning helps us get ready for what the day brings. For some, it all starts with a staggering zombie walk to make coffee (I include myself in this category). But for others who are seeking an alternative to caffeine to jump-start the morning, there are many natural energy-boosting options.

Daily Good: What Does a Compassionate Workplace Look Like?

Compassion in the workplace may sound foreign, but studies have shown that cultivating compassion at the office can have remarkable outcomes for product design, employee and customer engagement, and accountability. Compassion is at the root of delivering quality service, says Monica Worline, because “Service quality hinges on relationships, and relationships deepen when we listen and hear what’s going on in someone else’s life.

Elephant Journal: Every Day is a Prayer.

I don’t much believe in praying on our knees, hands clasped.
Still, I pray all day.
I grew up with the religious view of prayer, which felt like a pleading request for a temperamental God to step in and deliver what I asked for. It felt a bit like unworthiness waiting to be transmuted.

Patheos-Pagan: Wiccan Rede: Harm none, spell won’t be done

Many moons ago, through a strange twist of fate, Phyllis Curott’s Witch Crafting landed on my door mat. I wasn’t particularly excited about reading it but through lack of other reading fodder at the time, I began to read. By the end of the book, I realised ‘witch’ was something that had been missing in my life. Without anyone to turn to on my new path, I began to read but this time with an insatiable appetite. It wasn’t long before I came across the Wiccan Rede:
“An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will”

Inner Journey:

FIND PEACE INSIDE

“All spiritual disciplines are done with a view to still the mind. The perfectly still mind is universal spirit.”
— Swami Ramdas

Getting into the habit of meditating, praying and/or resting daily helps us pull back from our preoccupation with the material world. In silence and solitude, we have an opportunity to pay attention to what’s happening inside rather than outside.

When we do this consistently, we learn to relax and to quiet and detach from our mental chatter and our turbulent emotions. As we begin to witness ourselves in personality, we also begin to experience our soul.

“Meditation may require a lifetime to master, but it will have been a lifetime well spent.” If you want to judge your progress, ask yourself these questions: Am I more loving? Is my judgment sounder? Do I have more energy?Can my mind remain calm under provocation? Am I free from the conditioning of anger, fear, and greed? Spiritual awareness reveals itself as eloquently in character development and selfless action as in mystical states.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Thought For The Day: August 15, 2018 ” The High Price of Admission”

Happy Wednesday,

We all people who seem to thrive on drama. They are always instigating it or helping it along and leaving hate and discontent in their wake. We all have a choice when it comes to these people. We can either buy into it or walk away. Your personal inner peace is worth far more than the expensive price of another’s performance.

 Slow Down: Cat’s Angel Message for August 13, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 Slow Down: Cat’s Angel Message for August 13, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Take time today to appreciate beauty – natural beauty, art, people. Slow down, breathe deeply, smile. It’s a beautiful world. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


813:  It’s a good day to relax and just be. The Ascended Masters (AM’s) are traveling with us today and their message is simple, ” The Universe supports you in all that you do and all your needs are being met. Trust in the guidance that you receive and allow the blessings to unfold.” Gentle reminders like this are quite often what we need to initiate a little down time. Remember that your ground, clear and center work is a good starting point for relaxation, then do whatever makes you feel chill or brings you peace. There are no right or wrong answers so allow yourself time to reset.


Work with your favorite Ascended Master today by simply asking  for what you need. (peace, comfort, healing, direction etc) or try working with Maitreya. He helps us to find our joy and our ability to laugh which is essential to our mental well being as it releases anxiety and worry. The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin is also considered an Ascended Master. She helps us surround ourselves with loving compassion and teaches us the importance of self care.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Rose Quartz and Satin Spar Selenite. Rose Quartz is the essential stone for self care. It opens the heart and soothes the spirit. The fine vibration of Satin Spar Selenite makes it a great meditation stone. It opens the crown chakra to help us receive universal guidance as it calms the emotions and promotes inner peace.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

People’s Wobble: Cat’s Angel Message for June 23, 2018

People’s Wobble: Cat’s Angel Message for June 23, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


I’ve been immersed in it too long. My spirit is wobbly and my mind is confused. The hurt has become too great. – Ernie Pyle


623: How do you feel today? Are you peacefully centered or do you feel “wobbly” ? Either way make sure to take some time to ground, center and clear. This is an important part of a daily self care routine. It calms the mind and the emotions. It reduces stress and loosens the hold of anxiety.  When we are at peace this energy encompasses everything we do and can be felt by those around us. It opens the pathways that allow loving and peaceful vibes to reach our core and helps us to emit them in return. Just breathe  and allow peace to fill your entire being.


Archangel Haniel helps us tap into our own healing abilities. She teaches us to rely on ourselves instead of others in matters relating to our overall well being. The Ascended Master Buddha is our go-to guy for issues of balance. He teaches us that inner peace is found through balance and moderation and the Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin fills us with self compassion and understanding. She tells 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.”


Our Sacred Stone is Rose Quartz. This is another regular “go-to”. It’s energy is loving and soft. This crystal is essential when we are in need of self care.  It provides an emotional bubble bath that soothes the spirit.

It Starts With You: Cat’s Angel Message for June 2, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


The world is perfect. It’s a mess. It has always been a mess. We are not going to change it. Our job is to straighten out our own lives. – Joseph Campbell


62: The world is filled with many things both the  beautiful and the ugly. Sometimes it feels like we see more of the ugliness because that’s what the media and social media want us to see. Today the Angels are imploring us to keep our faith in the world and it’s people. There are millions of good people out there all trying their best to make the world a better place a little bit at a time. This attitude starts at home with you. Take a moment and offer gratitude for the blessings in your life and a prayer for the people in your world and the world as a whole. Surround them with love and ask that they be encouraged to see the beauty within themselves and in others.


Archangel Jophiel helps us to embrace the beauty around us. This in turn  attracts more beauty into our lives.  her message is “Beautiful thoughts help create beautiful outcomes.”  For peace, both inner and for the world, the  Ascended Masters Buddha and  Maitreya can help and  if you want to send healing out into the your world or the world as a whole Mother Mary, Jesus, Saint Francis and Saint Padre Pio are your go to Masters.


Our Sacred Stones are Yellow Jade which encourages the interconnectedness of all beings. Rose Quartz and Spirit Quartz both promote a loving home energy, harmony and peace. Prehnite helps to make your home a healing sanctuary. Kunzite helps us to connect to Spirit and universal love as it promotes peace.

Patience Requires Strength: Cat’s Angel Message for May 7, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Patience Requires Strength: Cat’s Angel Message for May 7, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. 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.


My biggest weakness is patience, wanting to see things happen too quickly or get changes in place right away. Not having the patience to let things develop. – Paul Gleason


57: Humans are  impatient creatures. If we don’t see immediate results we can become frustrated and upset. The angels are reminding us today to have faith in yourself and in the Universe. Wheels have been set in motion and while the results may not be visible or tangible just yet we must have patience and allow things to unfold naturally. Keep in mind that things are always happening behind the scenes so continue to do your part by letting go of the what no longer serves you. This creates the room we will need for the bigger and better things that are headed our way.


 Archangel Sandalphon will make sure that your requests are sent to the angel or master who can best help you.  The Ascended Master Buddha brings us peace and teaches us about balance and moderation in all things and the Irish Goddess Dana reminds us that we are worthy of and deserve good things. She tells us “While you wait for these blessings to arrive fill your heart with feelings of abundance. Engage yourself in things that make you feel abundant!” Today’s Sacred Stones are Rhodochrocite which promotes a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude balanced with creativity, Angelite helps us to connect to the angelic realms and is a stone of peace and brotherhood and Pyrite which helps to relieve frustration while boosting self confidence.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: April 26, 2018 “Are You Upset?”

Happy Thursday,

 

We all have the choice whether to engage in drama or to walk away from it. To some people every little upset is a big deal. They don’t forgive, forget or let go. Holding on to every “upset’ uses up time and energy that could be spent on better things. Word of advice? Don’t be one of these people. You have better things to do and besides….. your inner peace will thank you for it!
