Inner Journey: THE KEY TO CREATIVITY

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge islimited. Imagination encircles the world.”
— Albert Einstein

Do you know the key to creativity?

It rhymes with weed. It produces the oak tree. We often eat it or grind it up for flour. It can mean cause or origination. You guessed it. It is SEED.

Our minds love to associate one thing to another. But as we get stuck in very fixed patterns of thinking, we think of fewer and fewer connections. We are ruled by habits, associations and automatic responses. So we must stimulate our thinking with lots of different seeds to chart new paths in our brains.

“Just as our eyes need light in order to see, our minds need ideas in order to conceive.”
— Napoleon Hill

“Anyone can look for fashion in a boutique or history in amuseum. The creative explorer looks for history in a hardwarestore and fashion in an airport.”
— Robert Wieder

A Note from the Universe

Just remember most people are so beguiled by your charm and inspired by your choices, they simply forget to say, “Thank you,” “please,” and “I LOVE YOU LIKE CRAZY!” as often as they feel the urge.

Let’s not be one of those people.

“Thank you, please, I LOVE YOU like CRAZY!”

Clutch,

Sleep


“Of all the soft, delicious functions of nature this is the chiefest; what a happiness it is to man, when the anxieties and passions of the day are over.”

-Laurence Sterne (1713-1768)


Sometimes it just feels like a big relief to finally crawl into bed at night. Knowing that the day is done, that we’ve done all we can do with the time that we had, we can sleep peacefully. Tomorrow is another day. The sun comes up in the morning and we begin again. But while we sleep, we can be still. It is a simple pleasure to close our eyes and tie the day up with a sigh.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Thought For The Day: Dec. 30, 2020 “Sorting Them Out”

Happy Wednesday,

There comes a time when we must sort out the people in our lives. Sometimes we outgrow them. Sometimes we drift apart or sometimes they cause so much drama that it’s just not worth it. Surround yourself with people who lift you up and make you feel good about life and about yourself and who appreciate you doing the same for them. The new year is a good time to sort through your “subscriptions” and cancel the ones that are no longer in your best interest to hang on to.

Seeing the Whole Picture: Cat’s Angel Message for December 5, 2020

 December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.

125: Creating positive change in our lives enhances our ability to create something better for ourselves.. Remember that these changes are necessary if we are to grow to our full potential. Today the Universe is telling us that the time has come to acknowledge the changes that we have already initiated and to make any adjustments that will help ease the way. The number 5 relates to transformation on all levels and it’s important to continue to let go of what no longer serves to make room. Our spiritual helpers are here and are sending us messages and clues that relate to our path. Embrace your faith in yourself and the Universe and allow your transformation to happen!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive life choices. He understands that it’s hard for us to let go of people and situations even though they are holding us back or causing us unintended stress, drama or harm. Jeremiel can help ease these transitions and reminds us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future.

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 Welsh Goddess Cerridwen uses her cauldron “Amen” to help provide us with knowledge, wisdom, personal rebirth and inspiration. remember that change brings us the transformation that we need. She reminds us “The opportunity for your own transformation lies before you. It provides you the chance to spread your wings and grow. Look into my sacred cauldron and see the vision of your path unfolding before you.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Tiger Iron. This stone , which is a combination of Jasper, Hematite and Tiger’s Eye, helps to promote change by opening space within and providing the energy to accomplish what’s needed by generating new and creative ways and ideas to make the changes easier

Black Tourmaline helps to clear away negative energy and offers protection. It also helps to stimulate both creativity and practicality. Both of which will help us to achieve our goals.

Unakite. This green and pink stone helps us to see blocks that we have erected within ourselves and then provides valuable insights on removing them so that we can move forward. It helps us to appreciate and gain clarity from the present moment and works with both base and heart chakras.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Taking Our Energy Back Cat’s Angel Message for December 3, 2020

 December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.

Let go of your self limitations and feel the buoyant energy that fills your spirit! ~Cat

123: We are spending the day with the Ascended Masters. The message that we are receiving from them is pretty clear cut. “In order to receive new blessings (opportunities, relationships, enlightenment etc.) you need to make room. You do this by simplifying your life and letting go of the things and people who are leeching away at your energy, time or resources. If something no longer brings you joy or is not for your highest good it’s time to cut the cords.” The letting go process is necessary for our overall growth as well as helping to pave the way for the good things that the Universe is sending our direction. While this process can be difficult it’s definitely worthwhile. Once you start this process you will see and feel a major shift in your energy and you will feel more empowered.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

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 Ascended Master Solomon helps us to take what we are given and make the most of it. He teaches us how to do things more efficiently as he guides us through difficult situations. Focus and efficiency help us in our quest for personal evolution and help create the necessary stepping stones we need to move ahead.

The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, who embodies compassion and mercy says, “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart, and spirit. Be gentle on yourself. Joy comes from embracing the simple things which frees the energy needed to assist the creation process and help others along the way.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self-defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential. It helps to dissolve problems and insecurities that can arise when we are faced with new opportunities.

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.

Soft colored Lepidolite helps us by filtering away distractions and obsessive thinking so that we can focus on more important things. It soothes and heals stress and reminds us to just breathe.

Thought For The Day: Nov. 12, 2020 “Do You Want Peace?”

Happy Thursday,

We all want inner peace and a peaceful life. Today’s quote reminds us that if we truly desire peace that we are responsible for acquiring it for ourselves. if we allow drama and discord to rule our lives we will never have the peace we desire and there comes a time that we must decide what is truly important to us. By eliminating the things that make us upset or angry we find that we have created room for peace to exist. Let go and you will find better things waiting for you.

As the world dramatically changes we able to recognize that our habitual way of being no longer works. As a result, we are urged to find new, more authentic ways of living and being. Currently our focus is being driven inward, which can be challenging as we feel the need to manifest immediate changes in our lives. This inward journey will bring us new insights and the clarity we need to move forward.

Inner Journey: FREE TO CHOOSE

“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
— Sigmund Freud

In his book Nobody’s Victim, Christopher J. McCullough explains, “In order to live your freedom, you must first accept reality. ‘These are the choices, and given those choices, which do I choose?’ Whether the option you select is pleasant or painful does not alter the fact that, given reality, this is your preference.

“To live your freedom, it is helpful to stop and ask yourself, ‘Why am I doing this?’ and then notice whether, given the options, you are choosing what you really want, or whether you want to choose something else…. Sometimes the exercise of freedom involves naming your poison — all choices may lead to outcomes that are in some way painful. But the real pain is that of feeling powerless — denying your freedom.”

“Freedom is man’s capacity to take a hand in his own development. It is our capacity to mold ourselves.”
— Dr. Rollo May

A Note from the Universe

However safe you might think you are right now, you are even safer.

However much you might think you are loved and guided right now, you are loved and guided even more.

And however likely you feel your future happiness is to blossom, let me assure you, it is, in fact, inevitable. Eternally.

It’s simply that from within the jungles of time and space none of what I just shared is obvious, even as I hold you in the palm of my hand, because you’ve accepted what is unquestionably the single most daunting challenge I’ve ever imagined: to forget that we are one.

Good on you,

The Universe

Courtesy
“If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them.”

-Francis Bacon (1561-1626)


A citizen of the world. Yes! We are all in this together – no boundaries, no territories. We owe it to each other to show courtesy. In this way we are recognizing our heart connection. And our courtesy needs to extend to our friends and family, as well as strangers. Sometimes we take for granted that our family sits at the table with us and we don’t think about our behavior. But it is so important to be kind and gracious both outside our homes and inside our homes.

Daily Tarot: The Wheel of Fortune

It could be hard to sit still today and every little distraction may look more like an invitation to take a break or start the next thing. Get a lot done anyway by concentrating on short tasks and short conversations. A checklist helps keep things smooth and organized. Afterward, maybe take a nice long walk, stretch those legs, and shake the day’s dust off your shoulders.

Actively Listening: Cat’s Angel Message for October 20, 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.

______________________________

Letting go can be tough if we fail to pay attention to what’s going on. But when we actively listen weeding out what no longer serves us is made easier. ~Cat

______________________________

1020: Every day we face issues and problems that demand our attention. Sometimes it’s pretty easy to resolve them, while other times they keep popping up and slapping us upside the head. The truth is that in order to deal with recurring problems we must let go of what no longer works for us. The key is to replace the old and obsolete with a fresh outlook. Step back to get a new perspective and be willing to try new ways of doing things. While this may offer a challenge it will help us out in the long run. Keep your faith and step into your power as a creator. Partner with the Universe and be at peace with yourself. Remember, you don’t need to carry burdens alone, our divine support system is always here to lend help and support.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raguel sets us on the path to personal empowerment. He helps us to find our strength and promotes clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He empowers the underdog and also acts as a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves and can help you to reach your full potential.

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 Babylonian goddess Ishtar helps us to navigate times of darkness and change. She shows us how to access our courage. She reminds us ” Times of struggle and darkness can be intimidating. and keep you rooted in fear. Remember to stay clear on what is truly important. This focus will shine like a beacon and hold the darkness at bay.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Carnelian is used for motivation and increased creativity. It teaches us to trust in ourselves and helps us find creative solutions to current issues as it boosts self esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices which enhance our ability to draw new forms of prosperity and abundance.

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.

Deep blue Lapis Lazuli helps to open the Third Eye Chakra (mind’s eye) and stimulates our personal power. It also harmonizes our energies on all levels as this balance and strengthens our knowledge of self. It also helps us to confront the truth of a situation and promotes acceptance of the lesson involved. It promotes clarity and helps us express our opinions in a positive manner and teaches us the value of being an active listener which can be important in the letting go process.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

916: Today’s message is a gentle reminder from Spirit that no matter what we do or where our path leads us that we will be just fine. Our number for today lets us know that the Universe is helping us by lighting our path with a special focus on the areas where we need a little balance. The solutions we need to resolve or make things happen lie within and our “helpers” reveal them to us in a calm and loving way. Don’t allow worry to cloud your judgement or halt your progress. Turn these things over to the Universe and do you best to let them go or put aside that which is out of your control. Ask for what you need right now, whether it’s protection, guidance, illumination or simply peace of mind. Stay focused on the best possible outcome and above all have faith in yourself and temper your thoughts and actions with compassion.

___________________________

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process.In turn this shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes blessings easier to receive.

The Ascended Master Buddha is our go-to guy when we feel “wobbly’. He teaches us that the key to happy living requires moderation and balance in all things. This includes the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find that inner peace is ours!

The Egyptian goddess Bastet (Bast) is not only associated with cats both large and small she is also a goddess of protection and of things that bring pleasure to the senses.

910: In many of my daily messages I talk about keeping our thoughts elevated to a positive, optimistic level, and today is one of those days. Sometimes this can be difficult, especially when something bad happens and our thoughts and mood take a nosedive into the basement. The key is to do your best to move past it even if you can’t let go altogether. Focus on other things and the event will lose it’s power.Today we are receiving assistance from Spirit (Divine, Goddess, God, etc) in keeping our thoughts elevated particularly in areas that pertain to “Why am I here?”. Allow yourself to absorb new ideas that come out of the blue. These will provide needed and valuable insights that will help us along our path. Remember, information comes in many forms and that positive energy helps us to draw what we need to us like a magnet!

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!

These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”
