 Helping Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for November 13, 2020

 November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts. Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear. Pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas as they will keep you moving forward on your path.

1113: Today we are receiving a little extra help from the Ascended Masters. The world seems to be in utter chaos right now and these energies are weighing heavily on a great many people. The Ascended Masters have the following message for us: ” Do not allow your fears to color your judgment or emotions. During these stressful times remember that there is always hope. We are on your side and are here to help you.” Today is a good day to use your positive and creative thinking to help lift and inspire others as well as yourself. This is one of the easiest and best ways to make a difference in the world around you and within you. The number 13 also corresponds to intuition so pay attention to the messages that you receive and remember to trust in yourself as well.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raguel helps us to find our power and brings clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He also aids in the letting go process which is essential to moving forward. Raguel reminds us that sometimes people can get “freaky” when they see you moving off in a new direction and helps to smooth the way by resolving conflicts and disharmony with those around us as we work with our creative magic.

The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara teaches us that we have an unlimited supply of personal power and helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns. This gives us the skills we need to strengthen our personal boundaries so that we can be and stay strong in situations where we need to be.

The Ascended Master Serapis Bey brings us the necessary spiritual insight we need when dealing with negative people, feelings or situations. By surrounding yourself with loving energy you can find the peace you need to deal with off color moments. He teaches us that loving self care allows us the choice of removing ourselves from negative people and situations.

The Gnostic goddess Sige teaches us the importance of being still of mind. Information and guidance come more easily when we surrender to the silence. She says” Allow your mind to be stilland let your inner wisdom guide you. The answers that you seek are before you if you have the courage to remove the veils and shed light in the shadows.

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Fire Agate. This stone 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. This stone is also beneficial in returning the harmful and negative energy sent by others.

Rose Quartz. This soft pink crystal is the ultimate nurturer of compassion and loving energy. It soothes the heart, mind, and spirit. It helps us to bring out the best part of ourselves so that we can help and heal not only ourselves but others as well.

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.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Files of Information: Cat’s Angel Message for October 13, 2020

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

_______________________

Absorb the information that comes to you and file each piece in it’s proper place. ~Cat

________________________

1013: Today’s number corresponds to the Sacred Feminine, the Goddess and our intuition. This fits in neatly with this month’s theme. As we learn to open ourselves to receive divine guidance and messages it’s only fair to point out that sometimes we are given information that we don’t understand. Sometimes this is information that we need now, while other times it’s meant to be stored away for future reference. So why would this happen? Well… this is the Universe’s way of giving you a heads up and helping you to prepare for the next step. Today we are being visited by the Ascended Masters. They are ready to help you clarify the information that you have received and aren’t sure of. If you are experiencing confusion over a received message ask them to help clarify the meaning and make room for new information by turning over any worries or concerns that you have that pertain to current issues.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Sandalphon hears all requests and makes sure that they get to the Angel or Ascended Master who is best able to handle them. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!). Sandalphon also provides us with an emotional boost of courage. This is important as it helps us to make bold decisions that will help us on our path.

The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to stop fighting the things that we have no control over, which blocks our problem solving and creative flow. Things flow easier when we are not struggling against the “what if’s and maybes.”

The Gnostic goddess Sige teaches us the importance of being still of mind. Information and guidance come more easily when we surrender to the silence. She says” Allow your mind to be stilland let your inner wisdom guide you. The answers that you seek are before you if you have the courage to remove the veils and shed light in the shadows.

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Amethyst is a powerful protector that helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the decision making process by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. It calms and quiets internal chatter and “monkey mind”, which in turn enables us to relax and allow grounding and balancing to take place which help us to focus.

Pyrite has a warm, positive energy. It teaches us to have confidence in our skills and abilities so that we are able to realize our true potential by stimulating new ideas and knowledge of our own self worth. Pyrite also helps to balance instinct with innate intuition and overall creativity.

Turquoise helps us with creative problem solving and promotes both balance and intuition. It is aligned with the Throat Chakra and teaches us to speak up for ourselves and to speak our truth, which can be a valuable asset when working with gratitude and our ability to create. Turquoise helps to purify our energy and clears away negative energy. it aids our problem solving skills and protects us against self sabotaging thoughts and actions. This stone is associated with Archangel Sandalphon.

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

_______________________________

The information we receive falls into 3 categories.

What we can use.

What can be set aside for later.

What is not relevant and can discarded.

________________________________

1010: Today’s number certainly sums up this month’s theme so do your best to stay focused and centered, as this will help to keep the lines of communication open and flowing. We are being asked to work on areas involving our spiritual journey and personal development. Remember that we are creating our reality and the key is to stay optimistic about the messages and information that you receive. Messages will come in many forms, both divinely generated and through our own intuitive skills, so always be on the lookout for creative ideas and insights. The Universe is here to help you and the guidance that it offers will bring growth on all levels and each tidbit of information adds another piece to the puzzle.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Uriel helps us to let go of the past and invite essential new growth into our lives. He helps us to find harmony in the things going on around us and reminds us that letting go is essential for change and transformation to take place. Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed or simply express gratitude for the blessings taking place in your life.

The Ascended Master, Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence.

The Hawaiian fire goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”

Daily Good: Embracing Groundlessness

To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.

Pema Chodron –

Embracing Groundlessness

“It’s a fundamental fact of human life that we want our lives to be under control — we develop plans, goals, routines, systems, tools, schedules, structure to our lives. But while developing some structure is a very helpful thing for most of us … the truth is, there’s so much that we don’t control. Life is chaotic, out of control, shaky. It’s what Pema Chodron calls “groundlessness” — the feeling of no solid ground under our feet.” Leo Babauta shares more in this post. { read more }

Be The Change

What is your relationship to groundlessness? How might you take a fledging step towards embracing it more fully today? Check out this excerpt from Pema Chodron for more inspiration: “To Be Continually Thrown Out of the Nest.”

Inner Journey: RAISING YOUR SIGHTS

“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
— Albert Einstein

To grow in consciousness, we expand our perspectives on life. So how do we do that? The more we work with the universal — the concept of unity and wholeness, the more everything makes sense. Parts have meaning when they are understood to be parts of a bigger picture.

Consciousness is all about relationships — especially how the lower relates to the higher and how the darkness can exist within the light. Hold and experience contradictions like anger with love. Let opposites coexist in you without choosing one over the other.

“Higher consciousness, enLIGHTenment, comes from meaningful experiences and lessons passed with the understanding that there truly is only one law – the Law of Love. When one leads a life expressing this belief, the mind and heart begin to open to new realities, and other dimensional truths become known.”
— Dr. Norma Milanovich & Dr. Shirley McCune

Poetry
“Poetry is above all a concentration of the power of language, which is the power of our ultimate relationship to everything in the universe.”

-Adrienne Rich


Poetry is just one way to express our connection with the universe. Music does it with sound, art does it with color and texture, and poetry does it with language. While the description is elusive to us in prose, poetry allows us to go beyond mere description, to abandon the confines of “structure” and convey our feelings untethered.

Every day is a new day –
a day for new beginnings, new dreams, new action –

This is important today because material issues and opportunities are moving to the front line. Today the Universe is asking us to keep an optimistic outlook and when opportunities present themselves … grab them! The key will be to take what’s being offered even if it’s not the whole enchilada. Small steps in the right direction will help create exactly what we want. Keep October’s Theme in mind and pay attention to the clues and information (divine guidance /intuition) that you receive, as they will help you move in the right direction. Divine assistance is there for the asking so free up your energy by turning your fears and concerns over to your angels. The question is “What will you create today?”

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Zadkiel helps to heal our hearts and minds so that accepting support in all forms is easier. He also promotes compassion for ourselves and others while helping us to find things that we have lost, forgotten about or set aside. Ego is not a friend of truth as it forcibly tells us that we don’t need help and can do everything by ourselves. He boosts our faith and fills our hearts with peace and calm. He also helps us to remember information that will help us on this grand adventure.

The Ascended Master Yogananda teaches us how to open the channels of divine communication and promotes feelings of divine love and teaches us about peace and how to share it. He can offer assistance in all things including your spiritual path.

The Hindu Goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit so that new information can be sent to you. “

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month. You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Fear not the shadows for they hold the things that we have set aside. Treasure chests filled with hopes and dreams!

~Cat


825:  We’ve been working with faith, confidence, and intuition and today we are being asked to add self-honesty to the mix and put them to work on a different level. There are times when we need to step back and look at where we are and what surrounds us and today is one of those times. To move forward we need to make choices and decisions that speak to our personal truth. It’s time to gently let go of the things that are draining your time and energy (people, situations, and things we have outgrown) in favor of more positive pursuits. Having faith in yourself helps us to move forward, and having the confidence to use your intuition as a guide helps us to find and embrace new and better things. Stay focused and keep your mind open as this will help you see the hidden “gems” along our path!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us to recover things we have lost. while he usually works with lost items he can also help when we feel out of balance by showing us the reason behind it. He also assists us as we navigate our path by helping us to find the direction and guidance that needed to move forward on this journey of self-discovery. If you feel like you have wandered off your path and are having trouble finding your way back he can help you get your bearings

The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps keep our energy balanced and flowing. This is essential for using our gifts and understanding the information we receive. He can also help to diffuse unpleasant situations that can arise as we go through change and transformation. Since he helps us heal through color, pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant

The Greek goddess Persephone teaches us how to balance between light and dark and the importance of searching the shadows for what is lost or forgotten. Persephone tells us  “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath or has been hidden. By shedding light in dark or weedy places you often find treasures that you had forgotten or set aside. These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Amethyst is a powerful protector that helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the decision-making process by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement.  It calms and quiets internal chatter and “monkey mind”, which in turn enables us to relax and allow grounding and balancing to take place which helps us to focus.

Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem-solving process. It enables us to release things that are no longer relevant to our current path and dispels any guilt we may have when we leave things behind. It helps us to make the necessary changes and brings harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.

Gentle Seraphinite helps to clear the heart chakra opens us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path.

Inner Journey:

EXPLORE YOUR FEARS

“Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, our fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if we explore them.”
— Marilyn Ferguson

In our world of duality, fear and love sit at opposite ends of the continuum. Fear belongs only to the personality because it believes in separation and impermanence. The soul never knows fear because it understands the unity of all.

When fear arises, we can invite our soul to sit with our frightened personality. What soul energies are waiting to be acknowledged? When we bring higher energies into the presence of lower energies, the lower energies are transformed.

“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.”
— Jiddu Krishnamurti

A Note from the Universe 
Next time you feel really hurt, really angry, or really, really upset, and you’re sure that even I have been violated, shaken, and humbled, quick, check and see if the sky is any less blue, the sun any less radiant, the birds have stopped singing, or the flowers have lost their scent.

I’ll wager you’ll find that life has gone on much as before. Too consumed by the powers of now and the inevitabilities of love, understanding, and eternal life to have even missed a beat.

Problems/Solutions
“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.“

-Albert Einstein

 
Although we generally like to look at things in the best possible light, we can’t deny that we live in a world where problems present themselves to us on a regular basis. Whether the problems are big or small, stretching ourselves to find a solution helps us in our process of growth. Evading a problem, or trying to pretend that it doesn’t exist, only causes the problem to amplify so that it can get our attention!

Act with boldness, but not too much, and make this an easy and productive day. If something challenging or unexpected arises at work or with family, be receptive and stand your ground. Don’t push back until you know what it is you’re up against. Then if needed, give as well as you get. You can do this tactfully.

716: It is through our partnership with the Universe that we learn to trust in ourselves and in our own intuition. These things help to navigate our path and strengthen our powers of manifestation. Today we are being reminded that we are capable of making good things happen for ourselves as well as directing our own personal journey. It simply requires some effort on our part to help make things happen. Today the Angels are asking us to surround ourselves with love. Don’t struggle or try to force things to happen too quickly. Our ability to go with the flow helps us to let go of our fears and limiting beliefs. Which in turn allows abundance to freely enter your life. Simply know in your heart that you are manifesting what you need even if you can’t see it quite yet. Good things are happening so keep your chin up!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of what we have outgrown as well as our limiting self-beliefs and fears all of which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want.

 

The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps keep our energy balanced and flowing. This is essential for using our gifts and understanding the information we receive. He can also help to diffuse unpleasant situations that can arise as we go through change and transformation. Since he helps us heal through color, pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant    

 

Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

 

Green Amethyst encourages spiritual growth and can strengthen our connection to the divine and to nature as it helps us to look inward and embrace the adventure of self-discovery.
Golden Ray Calcite to boost your creative thinking and to eliminate patterns of self-defeating thinking. This helps to promote new and innovative ways to solve problems and move things forward.

712: Every day we receive messages from both internal and external sources. These messages can range from mundane to life-changing and can be heard, felt, or seen. However, there are times when we get busy and ignore the information sent our way. Today, the Angels are asking us to pay attention. Spirit speaks to us through repetitive thoughts and ideas. They come through music, from the people around us and from visual clues. Be aware of your surroundings and your reactions to them and listen for your inner voice.

Don’t allow yourself to tune out or turn off as you may miss something important.
