Messages From The Stars: Cat’s Angel Message for October 1, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


We have the capacity to receive messages from the stars and the songs of the night winds. – Ruth St. Denis


101:  As we start the new month take some time to clear and center yourself as we will be focusing on the receiving of divine inspiration and information. Divine guidance comes from many sources,( ie Goddess, Sacred Feminine,God, Angels or Ascended Masters.)  The Divine Source is not only powerful but creative as well so be ready for new and inspiring thoughts and ideas to help you along your path. Remember, don’t try and force things to happen because the best creative things happen naturally. Hold peaceful thoughts for yourself and others and allow creative solutions and ideas to help you today!


As you clear and center connect to your image of the Divine Source. Extend gratitude for what you have and the good things coming your way. Ask for what you need today. (peace, healing, energy, protection, etc.) Commit yourself to being open to receive and allow yourself to see the world with fresh eyes.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Azurite-Malachite. This combination of deep blue and green works with the Third Eye and Heart Chakras, which are essential to receiving divine guidance. It also promotes our individuality and the ability to be flexible in our thinking.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Sept. 20, 2018 ” Live and Dream”

Happy Thursday,

Today’s quote doesn’t imply that we should be irresponsible or neglect our responsibilities. It means that we should embrace our lives and the blessings we have. It tells us to never stop dreaming, scheming , loving, sharing or just plain living this grand adventure called life.

Close Your Eyes and Leap: Cat’s Angel Message for August 24, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Close Your Eyes and Leap: Cat’s Angel Message for August 24, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on 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!


The jump is so frightening between where I am, and where I want to be. Because of all I may become, I will close my eyes and leap. – Mary Anne Radmacher


824: Yesterday we talked about using our natural talents to help us create what we want. However,  to make things happen we must also have faith in ourselves and in the Universe. Our angels are reminding us that faith relies upon courage. When our courage wavers so can our faith. Since our thoughts and actions create our reality it’s fair to say that our courage and conviction stem from them as well. We can help ourselves even more by allowing ourselves to be guided through personal truth and values. rely on your inner guidance and your ability to think outside the box. Gather your gifts around you like an armored cloak and move through your day confidence and create the life you deserve!


Archangel Michael helps us by inspiring courage and providing energy and direction. He shows us that we are worthy of good things and that we are divinely protected on our path. The Ascended Master, Saint Padre Pio has an optimistic energy that he loves to share with those who ask. He assists in both faith and areas requiring spiritual growth. And the Hindu Goddess, White Tara asks us to “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are  Hematite which  promotes grounding, strength and courage, and Amethyst. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies, which it transmutes into something more positive while dispelling anxiety and fear It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making. It is also connected to Archangel Michael which allows us to feel his energy and the energy of divine love.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Be Patient: Cat’s Angel Message for August 20, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on 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!


The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper. – Eden Phillpotts


820: Today the angels are delivering a message from the Divine Source (Goddess/God, Creator, Spirit). “The universe holds a bountiful supply for everyone. All you need is within your grasp. Have faith in yourself and in me. My angels are here to help you, so never be afraid to make requests of them.” Remember that “divine right timing” comes into play here. When we make a request things are set into motion. Sometimes we see quick results and sometimes we must wait. This happens because we are not quite ready for a specific request to be fulfilled and the Universe waits until all is in place before sending it our way. Behind the scenes things are happening and the wheels are turning bringing you closer to your desired outcome.


Archangel Michael encourages us to stay true to our commitments and beliefs, while helping us to clear the way for the arrival of new blessings. The Ascended Master Saint Germain works with Archangel Michael. He also provides courage and direction as well as teaching us the importance of freeing our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. And the Hindu God Ganesh can help to remove obstacles from our path. He promotes the wisdom needed to navigate what life hands us so that abundance can find us.


Try using Ocean Jasper to promote patience and to calm the emotional stress that can happen when we become impatient for results and Fire Agate which allows you to embrace feelings of safety and trust as you navigate your path. It keeps us grounded and offers support when times get hard.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: Tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse Will Make History. Here’s What Makes It So Special

This Friday, July 27, a rare lunar event could set off a summer 2017 solar eclipse-level frenzy (who could forget those glasses?) across the globe. While it won’t be visible to the naked eye in the U.S., the upcoming total lunar eclipse will cast most of the rest of the world in a red-tinted shadow.

Daily Good:

Thousand Mile Walk Home

After being sidelined by injury, professor Michael P. Branch vowed his year would be filled with 1000 miles walked. As he logged his miles, the emphasis became one of practice, like a monk’s meditations, and opened his eyes in a profound way: “[The miles] were all walked here, in the high desert, on public lands, within a ten-mile radius of my home. If my bioregionalist experiment of walking more than a thousand local miles each year has involved weed whackers and beer and skipping as well as pronghorn and golden eagles and the wordless beauty of moonlight gleaming on unbroken snowfields, that may be just as well. It is incremental work, but I have had a glimpse of how these walks might someday add up to a journey, in the same way that a life is comprised only of individual days, which are themselves nothing more than a series of moments in which we choose to take a small step, or do not.”

Patheos-Pagan: Traditional Witchcraft… The Beginnings of a Wood Witch

My path into traditional witchcraft wasn’t a straight shot by any means. It was an indication of my true direction, a slightly more crooked path. I started out young, thirteen, already wearing black, and by fifteen doing piercings. Traipsing to the library after school, right to the occult section, reading every book they had, I was simply driven!

Inner Journey: 

BIG MIND, LITTLE MIND

“It is the mind that makes one wise or ignorant, bound or emancipated.”
— Sri Ramakrishna

Zen distinguishes big mind from small mind. Big mind identifies with its process, is impersonal and participates universally. Big mind is unlimited possibilities, deeper understanding, forgiveness, acceptance, insight, connectedness, attention.

Small mind is self centred and focuses only on itself. It is compulsive, limited, reactive and mechanical. Small mind feeds on itself — fear reacts to fear, judgment reacts to judgment, anger sparks more anger.

Always seek higher perspectives and you will in time find freedom.

“If a pickpocket meets a Holy Man, he will see only his pockets.”
— Hari Dass

“Minds are like parachutes; they work best when open.”
— Lord Thomas Dewar

Inspiration

“My affirmations or utterances come to me ready-made – not forethought – so that I occasionally awake in the night simply to let fall ripe a statement which I had never consciously considered before, and as surprising and novel and agreeable to me as anything can be. As if we only thought by sympathy with the universal mind, which thought while we were asleep. There is such a necessity [to] make a definite statement that our minds at length do it without our consciousness.”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

We are in spirit, and therefore inspired, all the time, even in our sleep. All we need to do is recognize this, and use what is available to us.

Spiritual Unite: When You Have Spiritual Connection With Cats

We don’t often have to think about how cats come into our home and lives; they are just there. What we don’t think about, is that cats match with spiritual people. Most often cat owners are people with enhanced spiritual gifts. Cats connect with spiritual people, but why are they such a good match?

MBG: Overwhelmed By World News? There’s A Spiritual Practice For That

At their root, most spiritual practices are meant to help you keep your heart open and your mind calm—no matter what life brings. But Western culture oftentimes takes this one step further and equates the use of spiritual practice with feeling “good.” Meditating will make you happier. You’re only anxious because you’re not trusting a source larger than yourself. Visualizing a positive outcome will ensure your success. You’ll just feel better if you lean into your true nature.

Those ideas have their merits in some situations, but in times of real human emergency, leaning on spiritual ideals or beliefs in this way can have the opposite effect:

Every day, I think about writing—yet I haven’t felt quite ready to call myself a writer.

Patheos-Pagan: Discernment – The Most Powerful Tool

I wrote an article about keeping silent with magickal workings and I’ve received some interesting responses. I still maintain that keeping silent about spellcraft is important, however, Witchcraft is not a ‘one size fits all’ system. What works for me may not work for you and vice versa. What I love about magick is the Law of Paradox; two things in opposition to each other can both be true. This concept is why discernment is the most powerful tool a witch possesses.

Inner Journey: 

BEING GENUINE

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

When we don’t know who we are — or if we are afraid to be who we are — we betray ourselves. We pretend to be who we think we are. Our self image is made up of our experiences, desires and other people’s ideas and expectations of us.

Maintaining this false self is a betrayal of ourselves. In all deep spiritual journeys, there is the experience of betrayal. Betrayal always tells us to adjust our life to be more authentic. What we identify with is all important.

There are large betrayals (e.g., your partner leaving you) and small betrayals (e.g., disappointments). They are all experiences of being wounded for the purpose of breaking down the defenses of the personality. When we allow the wounding and accept the betrayals as divine gifts, we greatly benefit.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
— Dr. Seuss (via Elena)

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

“Don’t loaf and invite inspiration.

-Jack London (1876-1916)

Inspiration can come to us… but more often it is something we go out and find. And we can find it just about anywhere! Spirit is everywhere, in everything. We may have to change our scenery once in awhile to wake us up to that fact. But look around – we are living amongst the richest treasures of spirit all the time – choose to be inspired.

Spirituality & Health: 5 Ways To Get Outside

According to outdoor supplier REI, the average American spends 95 percent of their life inside. Most of us work, study, eat and enjoy leisure activities like watching movies, all in the climate-controlled indoors. Yet study after study has shown that being out in nature has positive effects on our health, from reducing depression to lowering blood pressure and bad cholesterol. So why the disconnect? Let’s look at ways to get outside that can inspire even the most “indoor cats” among us to venture out.

Patheos-Pagan: INTUITION AND SYMBOL

Because it’s counterintuitive, the prevalent view of the symbol is to regard it as belonging in the category that we call ‘intuition’.

Insofar as we can argue that the intuitive faculty is a visual faculty, I can see why the symbol, steeped in visual imagery, should be thought of as having to do with the creative part of the brain, the part that dreams in images and weird translations.

Inner Journey: 

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 valuable life.”
— 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 fully whatever 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 that we 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

Inspiration

“I am one who, when Love inspires, attend, and according as he speaks within me, so I express myself.”

-Dante (1265-1321)

Writers and artists often speak lovingly of their “muse.” Love is a muse that all of us share. What could be more inspiring? When we are “in love” we are “in spirit,” we feel our connection with God. Yet that connection is omnipresent. So when we feel that connection, we can have that same feeling of being “in love” and use it to inspire our selves!

Beliefnet: Five Compliments Guaranteed to Make Someone’s Day
Make someone’s day today.

I was standing in line at a grocery store behind a young man and his little boy. The boy was playing nearby and accidentally knocked over a large sign. Frightened, he burst into tears, and his father ran to his side and gently comforted him. I was touched by how sweetly he treated his son. After he left the store, I regretted the fact that I didn’t take the time to compliment him.
