Spirit Library: The Power of Inspiration 

Dear Ones,

Inspiration comes to you as bidden, preparing the field, setting the scene, creating intentions ~ all of these activities are setting into motion the power of Inspiration. Most people do not realize how much they need inspiration in their lives, for without it, life can seem very dull.

Daily Good: Recording the Healing Sounds of Nature

“Through repeated, in-depth exposure to nature’s melodies, I soon developed a deep appreciation of their healing qualities and came to regard myself as a sound healer of sorts, with a focus on the voices of nature. I likened myself to an herbalist who goes into the forests and fields in search of medicinal herbs but I head into the wilds in search of immersive and atmospheric soundscapes that are transportive, relaxing, and that have a tonic effect on one’s body and mind.” Lang Elliott shares more from his decades of experience recording nature’s healing sounds.

Elephant Journal: New Moon in Aquarius: it’s Time to Declutter our Emotional & Spiritual Lives

t’s time to “spring-clean” our emotional and spiritual clutter this month.
It’s still winter in the northern hemisphere but nonetheless, this is a great month for some “spring-cleaning.”

If you’ve been considering “tidying up with Marie Kondo,” break out the eco-friendly shopping bags and start sorting through your stuff.

MNN: The Inuit have a simple way of teaching their children how to control anger

It’s no surprise that, as a society, we often focus on ways to manage anger. We know it’s bad for us, and that rage-aholics aren’t long for this Earth. We also know it’s bad for the people who have to deal with that anger.
So we focus on ways to quell a seemingly ever-simmering ire that only wants to watch the world burn

Patheos-Pagan: Confronting Stereotypes and Prejudice Against Paganism

A question came in this month’s Conversations Under the Oaks that was more timely than anyone knew.
How do you educate someone when they try to ban all forms of Norse Paganism because they think every Norse Pagan has to be a Nazi or a white supremacist? As cute as the meme of “Odin didn’t die for the Nazis to steal his runes” is, it’s not going sway anyone who only sees Nordic runes or hears Odin or Thor when someone shoots up a Jewish school or shows up in rallies like Charlottesville

Inner Journey:

Slow down

“The soul requires duration of time — rich, thick, deep, velvety time — and it thrives on rhythm. Soul can’t be hurried or harried …. We may go through many events in the day and experience nothing because the soul has not had the opportunity to feel them from many different points of view.”
— Robert Sardello

Soul cannot exist when our connections in life remain superficial. An experience of soul requires that we take time to be fully present to the details of our lives.

Explore what happens when you take the time to STOP and PAY ATTENTION. When we choose to slow down and really experience the qualities of our lives, we get a whole new perspective on what living is all about.

“We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.”
— H. G. Wells

“The well of Providence is deep. It’s the buckets we bring to it that are small.”
— Mary Webb

A Note from the Universe 

In the time that it takes you to read this short Note, you could have planted a new image in your mind (anything you like, ideally with an emotional charge); I could have reacted (realigning planets, people, and the sort), and the floodgates would’ve begun trembling violently as we’d have been drawn infinitely closer to manifesting the vision you’d chosen.

Fortunately, there’s still time.

Transformation

“You don’t go through a deep personal transformation without some kind of a dark night of the soul.”

-Sam Keen

Heavy, dark experiences change us. They shake us to our core and cause us to re-evaluate our lives and our values. So, it is understandable that a transformation can come out of that. And sometimes it works the other way around. Sometimes a transformation occurs – maybe we’ve been working on it for a long time but then suddenly there’s a shift – and we need some time and space to assimilate it into our consciousness. We need to see how we can fit our new selves back into our old lives. It can feel like a dark night of the soul – but it’s only temporary. The light shines through.

Horoscope is an account of the exact position of all the planets and stars at the time of one’s birth. It attributes towards forecasting future predictions and also the characteristics of an individual. Based on this date, time and location sphere, everyone is assigned a specific zodiac sign which represents a particular set of traits and features. It is also referred to as the life sign.

Daily Good: A Call to Caring

“At the heart of caring is an ‘and’ not an ‘or’. Deep within us lies a potential that transcends our artificial limitations. Can we embrace the possibility that we are fully capable of caring globally, in every direction — that the compass of our caring could open 360 degrees?” In his new book ‘Caring’ Tibetan lama Tarthang Thulku dives deep into an exploration of caring the potent antidote it offers to the ills of our time. The following excerpt, authored by his daughter shares thoughts on how to create a more caring world

Elephant Journal: How to Stop Spewing your Past all Over your Present.

An old lover of mine recently posted on social media:
“You’re going to date a few cowards before you meet someone brave enough to love you.”
My initial response: What a fucker.
My sarcastic response: Jeez, thanks.
My annoyed response: But wait…I thought you didn’t believe in love?
My snarky response: Shit…she must be brave to love you.
My snarkier response: Mirror mirror.

EarthSky News: Watch for Taurid fireballs!

Various sources give wildly different dates for the peak date of the long-lasting South Taurid meteor shower (active from late September to late November). November 4, 2018 is one of those predicted dates. Thus both November 4 and November 5, 2018 are good nights to watch for meteors, possibly featuring a higher-than-average rate of South Taurid meteors.

Patheos-Pagan: Pan-Celtic Hoofbeats: Finding Your Patron Deity

I notice a lot of new Pagans asking how to find a patron deity. They often sound worried about not having one yet, or not sure how this miracle is supposed to take place.
Newbies, this is a crone speaking. You are fine as you are. Take your time. You will never have it all figured out, anyway! Run like hell from anybody who says they have!

Inner Journey: 

INSPIRED TO CHANGE?

Are you getting the most benefit from these short Inner Journeys? Here are some ways to progressively stimulate more and more growth and change from these messages:
•Read them quickly for momentary inspiration and move on to the next email.
•Print them and keep them visible so you are conscious of the message during the day.
•Take just 30 seconds and write in your journal as little as one word or a few sentences about how you connect with each message.
•Take just 3 to 5 minutes to relax, reflect and contemplate on the messages that touch you. And then write a short note in your journal.
•When a message really hits home, make the effort to explore the program that delves into that topic more deeply.

At a minimum, if a message strikes any nerve at all, take a few seconds to become aware of what nerve was struck and what it means to you.

This process builds awareness, and awareness brings change and growth – automatically!

“Everyone stumbles over the truth from time to time, but most people pick themselves up and hurry off as though nothing ever happened.”
— Sir Winston Churchill

Beauty

“Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.” -Kahlil Gibran

When does life unveil her holy face? When we remove the veil of illusion before our eyes. We see things so obscured by the pressures and demands of our lives. Never mind the forest for the trees – we don’t see the blessings for the bills! But every once in awhile, it catches us by surprise. We are moved by beauty. It is a gentle reminder of God’s presence. Maybe it’s a dandelion growing through a crack in the sidewalk – a sign that life is meant to be lived despite any obstacles. Maybe it is a neighbor’s smile, or a beneficial “coincidence.” In any case, our lives are beautiful, we are beautiful, even if we need to be reminded of it every once in awhile.

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

daily Angel Message sms

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!
