Spiritual Unite: When You Are Connected To Someone’s Soul

Most of our relationships are ephemeral; rarely do they last. In times like these, a soul-to-soul connection doesn’t even exist between family members. We can share our darkest and deepest secrets with another human being, but still feel emotionally detached. And yet, one day, out-of-the-blue, we meet someone.

MNN: Photographer captures real-life purple rain

When photographer Joshua Moore set up his tripod along the Blue Ridge Parkway about 25 miles south of Asheville, North Carolina, one Sunday in May, he was planning to shoot a sunset. Instead, he got something more breathtaking: a captivating image of purple rain.

Tonight – May 21, 2018 – the half-lit first quarter moon passes 1.5o (3 moon-diameters) north of Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion. Although our sky chart at the top of this post is specifically designed for mid-northern latitudes in North America, nearly everyone worldwide can use the moon to find the star Regulus tonight. Just look for the moon in the evening sky. The nearby bright star will be Regulus.

Inner Journey:  WORK WITH TENSION

“You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.”
— James G. Bilkey

We need tension in our lives. It’s the force of personal evolution — it sparks creativity and higher consciousness. If we’re not comfortable with a situation, we try to improve it, right?

Tension arises through our experience of opposites. These opposites fight each other as each one struggles for dominance. Tension is transformed when two opposite dimensions of reality are brought together in balance and in wholeness.

Know that tension is an integral part of growth. Instead of avoiding or resisting tension when it arises, identify the opposing forces at play. Make space for each of them to be there together and the tension will transform.

We encounter tensions between positives and negatives, mind and body, self and environment, self and others, and personality and soul – the dualities in our lives.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

A Note from the Universe

There isn’t a moment in any day, when someone, somewhere, isn’t better off because of something you’ve done.

And no matter what you do, or don’t do, with the rest of your life, you cannot now comprehend the amounts of love, joy, and personal assistance that are already being pressed out to you in gratitude.

Must be nice,

Today’s Recipe: Honey Turnip Cough Syrup

My parents have been using this all-natural method to make their own cough syrup since I can remember. Turnips and honey have awesome natural antibiotic qualities to them. When they meld together, they make a fantastic medicine. This is just as effective as store-bought syrups for cough and congestion, yet it has no side effects. You can keep refilling the turnip with honey to make more of the medicine.

Freedom

“Freedom is not won on the battlefields. The chance for freedom is won there. The final battle is won or lost in our hearts and minds.”–Helen Gahagan Douglas (1945)

It is essential for our souls to feel free. We need freedom of expression, freedom of choice, to learn and grow. And yet, so many of our brothers and sisters all over the world live without that freedom. We are all one, and we feel their pain. Amidst the politics and controversy, what can we do? We can hold them in our hearts and in our minds, lift them up and know the Highest Truth for all of us. We can express gratitude for the freedom that we experience every day.

Bringing Things To Light: Cat’s Angel Message for May 21, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Bringing Things To Light: Cat’s Angel Message for May 21, 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.


Time will bring to light whatever is hidden; it will cover up and conceal what is now shining in splendor. – Horace


521:  We have all seen the New-Agey sentiment about  expecting the best from others and from life. While this is true to some extent the truth is that sometimes the best doesn’t always happen. Today we are being reminded  that when we are faced with a negative turn of events or encounter that all is not lost. If you look closely you can always find at least “one good thing” or lesson that came of it. It could be an idea to try something new or to take a new approach. It could be a new solution to to an old problem or even the realization that it’s just time to move on to better things. Remember that there is always something that you can take away from any experience, good or bad, that will help you along your path of personal growth. Look for it because these things can be game changing.


The Archangel Jophiel helps us work through unpleasant situations and shows us the positive things that actually came from them , the Ascended Master Solomon who helps us to form new and creative ideas for solving issues that have given us trouble and the Greek Goddess Persephone who tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark places we often find treasures we had forgotten. These treasures can form the foundations that you need.”


Our Sacred Stones include Chrysanthemum Stone which promotes balance during periods of change, Larimar helps us to go with the flow teaches us to meet all challenges with poise and composure and Hematite which helps us to sort out problems while it promotes grounding and clear thought.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: May 15, 2018 “Every Great Success”

Happy Tuesday,

Today’s thought is pretty straight forward. My advice is “don’t give up because you CAN do this. You are capable of making great things happen. Remember there is no failure just temporary setbacks. If something doesn’t work step back and try looking at it from a different angle. There is always another way to Git-R-Done.

Thought For The Day: May 3, 2018 “Encouraging Yourself”

Happy Thursday,

 

Learning to celebrate yourself can be considered “self care”. it’s more than okay to give yourself a pat on the back, a big hug, or to compliment yourself on a job well done. Don’t rely on others to encourage you because they are usually caught up in their own “stuff”. If something good happened today take the time to do the happy dance and give yourself a big high five!

What We Think, We Become: Cat’s Angel Message for April 22, 2018

What We Think, We Become: Cat’s Angel Message for April 22, 2018 

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


What we think, we become. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world. – The Buddha


 422:  Everyday we are made aware of bad things happening around us thanks to newspapers, social media and television. After being bombarded with this ongoing negativity it can be difficult to see the good in humanity. But the truth is that the GOOD is there and we just need to look more closely to find it. More and more of our fellow human beings are sharing positive stories and their light with the world. This is also true in our own lives.  Even though we sometimes get so caught up in the bad that we forget to see the good. Today the angels are urging us to trust in the Universe and in ourselves. They are asking us to have hope and to acknowledge the divine spirit that resides that resides within us. When we can embrace our own divine spirit we are able to see the divine in others, this enables us to find the good in humanity and promote hope and faith to those around us.

Archangel Chamuel is one of the seven core archangels and is considered one of the Powers who oversee the protection of the world. Call upon Chamuel if you are fearful of current world events and he will surround you with comfort and protection. The Chinese Ascended Master Kuan Ti also help to prevent hostile situations and warfare. Ask him to intervene and help bring about peaceful solutions and Ascended Master Buddha brings us inner peace and joy.


Our Sacred Stones for today are: Chrysoprase which helps to tune in to positive events and brings us hope. Blue Quartz helps us to understand our spiritual nature, it also inspires hope as it calms the mind. Hematite helps those in need of grounding and protection and Rose Quartz can be used to promote love of self and others.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: April 19, 2018 “An Uplifting Experience”

Happy Thursday,

We all need to be lifted up once in a while. Paying someone a compliment is not quite a thing of the past……….. not quite. We might notice that someone looks really nice today, or is doing a great job. Maybe someone is working hard to be a better person, lose weight or taking up the slack. But how often do we really say something to acknowledge these things? Usually we just keep those things to ourselves. How about we start a new trend of handing our heartfelt compliments? Try giving one out today it’s a win-win situation!

Thought For The Day: April 13, 2018 “Are You Successful?”

Happy  Friday,

Being successful doesn’t always mean having a lot of money, expensive things or an amazing career. Sure………….. that stuff is nice but it isn’t necessary. True success can be measured by how we treat others. Everyday we have opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others. Single parents, stay at home moms, caregivers, people who volunteer or people who just enjoy helping others are just a few examples of regular people who make a difference to someone everyday. It doesn’t require money, just time, the attitude of gratitude and a compassionate heart!
