ThoughtCo: What Does It Mean When You Dream About Snakes?

We’ve all had weird and unusual dreams before, and it’s believed that elements of our dreams are keys to our subconscious. Most dream experts agree that the meanings of animals in dreams vary based on what the animal is doing and how you feel about it. Let’s take a look what dreams about snakes can mean in your life.

Today’s Deity: Laughing Buddha – Meaning behind the Happy Statues

Tonight at work I was determined to learn something new in the realm of positivity. While tumbling all over Tumblr, I saw Happy Buddha and decided to google him. I’ve always had a thing for the happy chubby statues but I didn’t know much about them – or that there was so much to know.

My googling adventure started simple with a visit to wikipedia to learn the difference between him and the founder of buddhism – Gautama Buddha- and why he was so dang cheerful. My mind was blown by the hidden meanings within each statue. Before I knew it I was learning the exact position in the house your little figurine should be placed. Haphazardly collecting Buddhas could devastate the Feng Shui of your home.

MBG: Leo Season Is Here & Things Are About To Get Downright Theatrical

Every 30 days or so, the Sun visits a new zodiac sign. During this “season” everyone feels the energy of this prevailing astrological sign, no matter what your Sun sign horoscope may be. Expressive Leo is the second of the zodiac’s three fire signs and it’s of the “fixed” quality.

Daily Good: The Teachings of Grass

How do we relate to the land that sustains us–as a source of belonging or as a source of belongings? As the planet teeters on the brink of environmental collapse, botanist, teacher, and author Robin Wall Kimmerer urges us to consider our broken relationship to the Earth and the hard choices that lie before us by examining the history of her Potawatomi ancestors. Through cultivating the sense of respect and gratitude for nature inherent in indigenous teachings, Kimmerer invites us to reclaim that wisdom and renew our earthly relationships to restore honor in the way we live.

EarthSky News: Ophiuchus, 13th constellation of zodiac

Tonight, look for the faint constellation Ophiuchus the Serpent Bearer. From the Northern Hemisphere, look southward at nightfall. From the Southern Hemisphere, look more overhead around mid-evening. From all parts of Earth, Ophiuchus crosses the sky westward as Earth spins under the sky, and as evening deepens into late night. Ophiuchus is sometimes called the 13th or forgotten constellation of the zodiac.

Inner Journey:

USE DOWN TIMES TO GOOD ADVANTAGE

“The affairs of the world will go on forever. Do not delay the practice of meditation.”
— Milarepa

In our busy schedules, we can often complain that we don’t have time to meditate. But if we are sincere in our desire to go inside, we can create our own moments of stillness in the midst of our activity.

Stopped at a traffic light? Do some deep breathing. Waiting in line at the bank or grocery store? Repeat an uplifting word such as ‘love’ or ‘peace.’ Riding the bus to and from work? Value these times as an opportunity to close your eyes and go within orto say a little prayer.

“Wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity, carry your stillness within you. Then the chaotic movement around you will never overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity, the field of pure potentiality.”
— Deepak Chopra

Daily Tarot: The Lovers 

The world may seem to be working overtime to baffle or confuse you, but you don’t have to take the bait. If you’re offered something that seems too perfectly tailored to your tastes or desires, it’s OK to be graciously skeptical. You can appear cautious rather than distrustful. Keep things simple today and minimize getting upset by torn or unsettled feelings.

Natural Living Ideas: Homemade Sleep Lotion To Induce A Restful Slumber

Sleep can be hard to come by for some of us. With about 9 million Americans popping pills for better sleep at night, insomnia has become a major issue. And that’s not including the millions of Americans who have difficulty sleeping and aren’t taking sleeping pills. This sleepy time lotion though uses a relaxing blend of essential oils and magnesium to calm the mind and promote restful sleep.

Life Is Too Short For Stress: Cat’s Angel Message for April 6, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

Life Is too Short For Stress: Cat’s Angel Message for April 6, 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.


 Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change. Life’s too short to be anything… but happy. – Anonymous

46:  Today’s world can be a stressful place. One filled with changes and energies that impact us as well as our loved ones. Today we are reminded of the April Theme of challenges and change. When we feel overwhelmed by what life throws our way, big or small,  take a moment to just breathe and then ask our Angels for help. Our Spiritual Helpers want what best for us and can help us with the things that bring peace to ourselves and to our loved ones. Part of the challenge is our willingness to help ourselves. Our helpers can’t do it all for us so we need to do our part to assist the angels by getting our stress levels down, yoga, meditation, dance and letting go of things that no longer serve our highest good . Letting go of stress allows us to reclaim our power and infuse our lives with new energy!

Archangel Zadkiel teaches us to hold compassion for ourselves and for others. This can help to reduce our stress levels, the Greek Goddess Iris, Lady of Rainbows, helps us to find the calm in the storm. She is the bringer of hope and she gently surrounds us with an all will be well energy,  and Laughing Buddha (Maitreya) helps us to keep our sense of humor during difficult times. He teaches us that being able to laugh reduces stress and creates positive flow.

Our Sacred Stones for today include Moss Agate which can help to replenish and refresh your soul and to release fear and deep seated stress and Chrysoprase to relieves stress as it promotes hope and draws our attention to more positive events.

Creative Origins: Cat’s Angel Message for September 27, 2017  

 

Autumn Angel

Creative Origins: Cat’s Angel Message for September 27, 2017  

September’s Theme:  Life Purpose.  Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t. Many of us fall into the second category and that’s OK!  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you. Life Purpose can be very simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better.  Sometimes the small things are the best!

All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.

– Carl Jung

 

927: We will continue talking about our support system today. While having a great support system can help give us the confidence to move forward with our goals and dreams, the truth is that your own self confidence will help you farmore.  By believing in yourself and in your dreams you are consciously creating  a flow of positive energy. This energy  surrounds you and  flows outward, opening the paths  doorways to new things. Today we are being asked  to embrace our confidence and let it shine. Stay focused in the now so that you don’t miss out on the beauty of the day and the new opportunities that it offers!

The Celtic goddess Brigit helps us to find the courage and confidence  needed to work at our highest level to achieve our goals. She opens our creative pathways so that the flow of new ideas come easily.Archangel Michael helps you commit to what you believe in and helps to promotes confidence and self esteem. The Ascended Master Maitreya, or the Laughing Buddha, teaches us to see with world and life with laughter and joy. This enhances our positive outlook and helps to see new ways and ideas. Our Sacred Stone for today is Amethyst. This crystal helps us to move forward, cope with change and promotes overall success.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Making the World a Bigger Place: Cat’s Angel Message for September 9, 2017

Making the World a Bigger Place: Cat’s Angel Message for September 9, 2017  

September’s Theme:  Life Purpose.  Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t. Many of us fall into the second category and that’s OK!  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you. Life Missions can be very simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better.  Sometimes the small things are the best!

A single generosity enlarges the world.  ~ Mary Anne Radmacher

99: The angels are once again calling out to all Lightworker’s and Peace Warriors as you are needed during this time. Remember that even small things matter and whatever contribution that you make helps create better things for all. Send love and light out to the whole world , small groups or simply start with an individual. Each of us is a Lightworker to some degree and it is part of everyone’s Life Purpose/Mission. We are all capable of spreading healing and peaceful energy to those who need it. When we all  work together on this common cause healing and miracles can and do happen. Never be afraid to embrace your inner healer and share that energy with those around you!

Archangel Raphael assists and supports all healers, and Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) whose name means “the loving one” helps to promote both global and personal peace.  Use Orange Calcite helps us to embrace and be confident in our own abilities

Living with Zest: Cat’s Angel Message for June 19, 2017 

June Theme: Balance – Focus – Faith 

If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind. ~ Norman Vincent Peale

619: When we are stressed or worried about material matters we tend to place our lives on hold or even go full frontal freaky. While being aware is good allowing these things to rule your life is not. The truth is that this approach only magnifies the stress and worry you are feeling and we can become overwhelmed by it. The other unfortunate side effect is that it blocks our power of manifestation. Today the angels are reminding us to continue the work we have been doing on upgrading our thought patterns. They are asking us to get moving and enjoy life. Take a walk or go for a hike, build something, make something or just embrace your creative side. There are always options that cost us very little or nothing but a little time. We are in charge of creating our own reality so take some time and acknowledge your blessings and you will realize just how “wealthy” you really are!

Maitreya or the Laughing Buddha helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter. he tells us that laughter is sacred and when the heart is alive with joy we are connected to the Infinite and filled with Nirvana-essence. Center your mind with the intent of enjoying yourself and you will find yourself centered in the moment. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process! Our Sacred Stone for today is  Green Tourmaline. This stone (aka Verdelite) promotes  joy of life, creativity, prosperity and abundance. it is also a healing stone that transforms negative energy into positive.

 Blessings for a magickal day!
