MBG: This Spiritual Philosophy Could Transform Your Relationships

You can’t have unity without diversity. The trick is to find the unity in diversity. Hear me out: Many spiritual philosophies say that while we are all different, our collective evolution—as people, as a society—unifies us. While no two people are the same, two people can still be one. As evidenced by mindbodygreen’s mantra, You. We. All., our true power comes through when we understand and respect one another, when we connect through our common purpose as people on this planet.

Spirituality & Healing: 6 Ways to Deal with Nighttime Anxiety

Wake up! It’s 2:40 a.m., prime time for feeling panicky and dyspeptic. Let’s ruminate! Let’s go over everything on the to-do list! Let’s feel overwhelmed, maybe with a little side sauce of guilt. What’s that, brain? You want to go deeper, ponder the very point of our lives? Sure… Until 4:55, when we finally doze back off. Ugh. My internist told me that insomnia like this is sometimes caused by our brains being “too full,” which certainly resonated with me. So, what to do with a too-full brain at 3 a.m.?

Elephant Journal: 4 Ways to “Let it Go” even when we’re Still really Stinking Mad

When confiding in a trusted friend or family member about something that is bothering me, I am often told to just “let it go.”
“Yes, great, I would love that,” I think to myself. “But how exactly do I do that?”
We usually know when we need to let go, but what if we aren’t quite ready or we are really stinking mad and need to sit with those feelings for a minute? Sometimes someone suggesting we just “let it go” seems a little harsh and can anger us even more.

EarthSky News: Young moon beneath Venus May 16

Tonight – May 16, 2018 – seek for the the young moon beneath the dazzling planet Venus at evening dusk. Since this whisker-thin and pale lunar crescent will be sitting low in the sky, it’ll be to your advantage to find an unobstructed horizon in the direction of sunset. If you miss the moon after sunset today (May 16), try your luck after sunset tomorrow

Patheos-Pagan: Salt City Pagan: I’m Not Ready to Label Myself, Are You?

Let’s have a quick chat about why I am not ready to embrace labels as part of my path quite yet but that one day I hope to have something that I can identify with. As many people already know I have SOME labels that I freely embrace and they feel quite comfortable. Things like: gay, kitchen-witch, son, brother, uncle (guncle if you please), and all of the mundane work labels that come with my job. What I am not comfortable embracing is the title of Druid or Wiccan as of yet.

Inner Journey: Befriend yourself

“Self-contempt never inspires lasting change.”
— Jane R. Hirschmann & Carol H. Munter

The journey to know ourselves ideally brings us to self-understanding and acceptance. It is NOT a quest for self-improvement.

When we open to love and accept ourselves, no matter what, we allow our innate love, power and wisdom to emerge naturally.

“Who you really are is enough.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer

A Note from the Universe

The easiest way to avoid letdowns and disappointments,  is…

No, it’s not lowering your standards. That’s quitting.

No, it’s not releasing expectations. That’s an old wives’ tale.

And no, it’s not relinquishing all mortal desires. That’s an ancient religion.

It’s never tricking yourself into thinking that your happiness is dependent upon the things and events of time and space, or what other people think, say, and do.

So go ahead, aim high, expect a miracle, and want it all…

Dreams

All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.” -Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1845)

What is real? It has been said that the first three states of consciousness (sleeping, dreaming and waking) are just an illusion. That “reality” comes with higher states of consciousness, when we can see God in all things, and when we can see the Oneness of all creation. When we “wake up” to reality, we will see the beauty of life all around us at all times.

Beliefnet:5 Ways Archangel Michael has Your Back

All of the archangels are helpful entities, but Archangel Michael appears to be the archangel who shows up most regularly in our lives. While each archangel has access to enormous power and grace, archangels can at times have a subtle presence, or be working on your behalf behind the scenes without your knowledge, but Archangel Michael seems to have a more immediate, pronounced presence. Archangel Michael is an especially “hands on” archangel.

Thought For The Day: April 24, 2018 “What Really Matters”

Happy Tuesday,

Life really is short and older you get the more you realize it. It’s easy to get caught up in things like drama, feuds or worry. Pretty soon we have wasted copious amounts of time on things that really don’t matter and have missed out on what does. Remember that some battles are worth fighting but most are not. Choose wisely and make the most of NOW.

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.

Steering Clear Of The Swamp: Cat’s Angel Message for February 16, 2018

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

Steering Clear Of The Swamp: Cat’s Angel Message for February 16, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

 

Life only appears complicated when one is worrying.
Relax, and life becomes simple again.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

216: We all struggle with material concerns and although we do our best to maintain a positive outlook there are times when we find ourselves stuck in the “Swamp of  Worry &  Fear”. This little side trip happens to everyone, it’s normal. The key is in having faith in yourself to  make things happen even when the cards seem stacked against you. The Universe and its helpers are reminding us that when the swamp beckons to take a moment and find your center. Let go of fear and worry and focus on what’s good in your life, Embracing gratitude allows us to gain clarity and focus. This helps us to start building a bridge through the Swamp and while we may get out feet muddy our gratitude keeps us from becoming stuck.

Archangel Chamuel helps us to find what is lost (including ourselves) and promotes the  focus and clarity we need to navigate safely. The Hindu Goddess Green Tara helps us with immediate assistance when we are in desperate need and the Ascended Master Buddha helps us to stay balanced in this ever shifting world.

Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Apophyllite to help us overcome anxiety, worry and fear. It calms  and helps us to release negative thought patterns.

Sunstone helps us to find our optimism and enthusiasm as it teaches us to nurture ourselves instead of beating ourselves up. It brings good fortune and luck

Simplify, Simplify: Cat’s Angel Message for January 23, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Simplify, Simplify: Cat’s Angel Message for January 23, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

As you simplify your life,
the laws of the universe will be simpler;
solitude will not be solitude,
poverty will not be poverty,
nor weakness weakness.
– Henry David Thoreau

123: We humans are busy creatures. We spend our days scurrying about like ants on a mission and expend  great amounts of energy, time and money. Some of the “expenditures” are worthwhile and others are not. It’s easy to wear ourselves out. Humans also tend to hang onto things like people, things and activities simply out of habit. Today our angels are asking us to look at where our time, energy and money go and to root out the things we no longer need, have outgrown or keep hanging onto just because. Simplify your life is the key phrase for today. Be proactive about making room in your life and check the expiration dates. If something doesn’t fulfill you, bring you joy, or it steals your energy it’s time to let it go. Remember that through simplifying and clearing you are making room for new adventures, friends, and blessings!

Archangel Michael helps us to see that it’s alright to let things go and gives the courage we need to make it happen. Ascended Master Babaji can assist us in the process of simplifying our lives by showing us how to detach from material things and Buddha helps us to balance what’s important to us by teaching us about the perils of excess. Our Sacred Stone for today is Prehnite. This stone is used in Feng Shui and helps in the decluttering process. It helps us to see what needs to go and helps us to let go.c

Directing Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for January 17, 2018  

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Directing Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for January 17, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

Until you make the unconscious conscious,
it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
– Carl Jung

117: Today we have entered the New Moon phase which begins a new cycle so it’s a great time to ditch what didn’t work for you last month and make  some new plans. Along these lines the Universe is encouraging us to stick to our path. All the work we’ve done, the changes we have made and are making are starting to pay off. Make a conscious decision to move forward and  stay focused on the things you want to accomplish. The key is to let go of your worries and fears as you continue to push onward. Our angels understand that we sometimes get discouraged when results don’t happen right away. So they are reminding us to have faith in ourselves and in the loving energy of the Divine. The wheels are turning behind the scenes and things are falling into place.

The Ascended Master Babaji helps us to create a strong, clear line to the angels and the Divine Source. Archangel Raziel gently guides us through the manifestation process so that we are more adept at creating what need and want and the Greek goddess Artemis helps us to pursue our goals with focus. She is a Lady of the New Moon  and can help us set new goals to replace the ones that aren’t paying off , fell by the wayside or just didn’t work out. Ask her for guidance and to aid your intuitive skills. Our Sacred Stone for today is Tourmalinated Quartz. This stone which combines the properties of both Quartz and Tourmaline is an excellent grounding stone and helps to transform negative energy and thoughts into positive ones.

The Flow Of Change: Cat’s Angel Message for January 15, 2018  

KODAK Digital Still Camera

The Flow Of Change: Cat’s Angel Message for January 15, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

We are strange beings, we seem
to go free, but we go in chains –
chains of training, custom, convention,
association, environment –
in a word, Circumstance –
and against these bonds
the strongest of us struggle in vain.
– Mark Twain

115: The new year just like any new cycle brings change. The key to embracing change lies in how we deal with it.The truth is that change is necessary for our overall growth although to often we see change as a scary monster to be avoided. When dealing with change we can either fight or accept. Struggling with change  keeps us from growing (emotionally, mentally, spiritually) and creates unneeded stress and can keep us from achieving our desired dreams and goals. Holding grudges or unforgiving thoughts about yourself or others also keeps us from moving forward and our angels are asking us to let these things go. However, if we embrace change and allow it to unfold naturally we emerge stronger and more confident. Today the universe is asking us to make friends with change and to elevate our thinking. Stay focused on what’s important in your life and continue working toward a positive outcome. Accept that these changes are happening for your overall good and that it’s time to open the doors to new adventures.

We will be working with two archangels today. Jeremiel helps us to see the changes we need to make and move forward and Zadkiel helps us to forgive by letting go so that we can move on. The Greek goddess Hecate teaches us about the importance of change. She helps us to release the past and the old things that keep us from moving on and how to accept change and transition. Our Sacred Stones for today are Tiger’s Eye which strengthens our resolve to make things happen and softens any stubbornness where change is concerned and Iolite to help ease the process of change and reduce stress.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
