Elephant Journal: A Morning Letting Go Ritual.

Every morning, I wake up.
And then I just let go.
I let go of the day before. Finally. It takes my slumber to do so.
And I let go of tomorrow too. Preemptively.
I look at what’s directly in front, that moment, those minutes.

Daily Tarot: The Hermit

Right and wrong are important, yes, but today equally or more important could be doing what helps the most or alleviates the most pain or difficulty for someone or something. It could be as simple as feeding a stray cat, but it could be much more complicated, especially if it involves someone you care deeply for. Try to see things clearly and don’t overreact about anything.

Patheos-Pagan: Between Beltane and Litha: Now What?

I sadly say good-bye to Beltane every year, put my flower crowns away for a little while, and look towards Litha. Beltane can be such a joyous time, that the days between that celebration and Litha can feel like a bit of a slump. Not to mention, looking at June 1st with a sense of bewilderment: where has half the year gone?

Inner Journey:

APPLY WHAT YOU KNOW

“Knowledge of any kind … brings about a change in awareness from where it is possible to create new realities.”
— Deepak Chopra

As we evolve, we handle knowledge in different ways. We tend to move through these stages:
•We are unaware.
•We become aware of facts, data, information.
•We comprehend meaning from the facts.
•We can personally apply the information in our lives.
•We have wisdom – enlightened, we can lovingly apply our knowledge to world affairs.
•We live in truth.

How have you personally experienced a shifting of applying knowledge from one level to the next?

“More important than finding the teacher is finding and following the truth of the teaching….”
— Sogyal Rinpoche

“There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.”
— Arnold Bennett

Daily Wisdom
May 30, 2019

Self-Realization
“Spiritual living is a fulfillment from moment to moment, in which the outer person is in a state of living rapport with the inner being and becomes an extension thereof.”

-N. Sri Ram (1889 – ?) Thoughts for Aspirants, 1972

A lot of times we tend to separate our “outer life” from our “inner life.” Maybe we’re working at a job we hate just for the money, while our heart aches for something more. Or we can’t seem to find that certain relationship we’re longing. We can come up with all kinds of justifications for these things. But there’s always a solution. To fully integrate ourselves, we’ve got to make our outer life an extension, or an expression, of our inner life. We’ve got to develop that rapport spiritually within so that we understand how much power we have to create anything in our lives.

Pulling Weeds: Cat’s Angel Message for May 9, 2019

Pulling Weeds: Cat’s Angel Message for May 9, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


The weeds keep multiplying in our garden, which is our mind ruled by fear. Rip them out and call them by name. – Sylvia Browne


59: The personal work that we have been doing recently is helping to make our lives more stable. Through changes and the letting go process we are finding our balance and are gaining a clearer view of our life path. I like to visualize this path as being surrounded by vegetation. There are plants in various stages of growth, flowers, trees and of course…. weeds. The weeds represent things that we need to let go of. A we pull these weeds we are clearing the way for new growth. We may even find some of the thought seeds we had planted and forgotten about or bare spots where we can plant new things. The angels are simply asking us to do some personal gardening today. Set a goal of weed-plant-nurture to get your personal garden into shape!


Archangel Chamuel helps us to get back on track. He is showing us how to build the strong foundations we need to be successful in all areas of life. These foundations are created in part through the letting go process and through the positive changes that we embrace, and the Ascended Master Saint Germain helps find creative solutions during times when we feel unsure of our direction stuck in place. He guides us through the essential space clearing so that we can start the building and growth process. And the Greek goddess Persephone teaches us how to liberate ourselves from the things that are holding us back so that we can forge ahead on a new path. This lady has both an iron will and compassion. She tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark places we often find treasures we had forgotten. These treasure can form the foundations that you need.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Rhodonite which helps us to shed old-outdated and harmful thinking and patterns. It helps us to find our confidence and clears away confusion as it helps balance our energy and Unakite which promotes rebirth and gently assists us in finding and releasing old things that are blocking our progress.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Dream a New Dream: Cat’s Angel Message for May 8, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. – C. S. Lewis


58:  Today the Universe asking us to re-evaluate our current, overall situation. We have been focusing on letting go of what no longer serves us which also includes  all the things that are money and time related. You may be wondering “WHY” this is important. It’s important because today we are getting a green light from the universe in regards to projects and ventures that we have been considering or putting off. The angels are telling us ” Now is a great time to get started on what makes your spirit sing! We are here to help you achieve your goals!” Ask for guidance or direction and stay open to the messages that you receive. Remember to stay focused on making room for new forms of abundance and allow yourself to be excited for what lies ahead!


Archangel Raziel helps us to manifest prosperity and abundance in all forms. he also teaches us how to let go of outdated beliefs that are holding us back from realizing our full potential. 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.  And The Hindu goddess Kali helps to clear away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings. She says “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this. Remember that dreams must be created with focus and intent. I will help you to embrace the courage and motivation that you need to see things through to a successful conclusion.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following: Yellow Jasper helps to provide clarity on both mental and emotional levels. It starts us off in a positive direction while helping us to find realistic and workable solutions that help us to attain our goals and  Green Calcite which helps to create harmony and allows rigid beliefs and outdated programming and dissolve. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw good things into our lives.

The Pace of Change: Cat’s Angel Message for May 7, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


A lot of people get impatient with the pace of change. – James Levine


57:  We humans are an impatient lot. If we don’t see immediate results we can become frustrated and upset. The angels are reminding us today to have faith, and patience in yourself and in the Universe. The wheels have been set in motion and while the results may not be visible or tangible yet we must keep our cool  and allow things to unfold naturally. Keep in mind that things are always happening behind the scenes so continue to do your part by letting go of the what no longer serves you, works for you or brings you joy. This creates the room we will need for the  bigger and better things headed our way. Ask the Universe for help and allow your inner wisdom to act as a guide, and above all be true to yourself.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations. The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. And the Irish goddess Dana says “While you wait for these blessings to arrive fill your heart with feelings of abundance. Engage yourself in things that make you feel abundant!” ….. ” Your energy is linked to the energy of the Divine. Acknowledge and strengthen this connection as it allows you to handcraft your dreams.”


Today’s Sacred Stones include the following: Gentle Rhodonite helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations. 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, and Sugilite is a stone of spiritual love and awareness and promotes Divine interaction and communication. Sugilite also encourages positive thinking and teaches us to live our truth and to trust our intuition.

Discovery and Adventure: Cat’s Angel Message for May 5, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


Choose what lies in the shadows to be a matter for discovery and adventure, rather than fear. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


55:  When Change shows up at your house in his beat up truck and tells us to get in you better buckle up because we’re going for a ride baby! To clear the way and make and room  start by letting go of a few things that are  no longer working for you or that you have outgrown. (People, activities, thoughts, old resentments etc.) Start small and work up from there. This makes it easier to tackle the  larger things later if we keep in mind that things are connected and by picking apart the big things it makes them easier to let go of. Now give these things over to the angels, then visualize packing up all the old things into a bag and tossing it off a bridge. I kid you not this visualization is truly empowering! The clearing away process creates the necessary space for better things. Remember, you deserve good things and life is too short to hang on to things that no longer bring you peace and joy!


Archangel Jeremiel oversees life changes and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes.  The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and  spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process . Letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important. And the Roman goddess Vesta, who oversees hearth and home. She helps us to clear space (both in our physical home and our inner home) to make room for new things and teaches us the value of letting go of what we no longer need. ” If something does not make your heart sing put it where it belongs or set it free. This will clear your inner and outer sacred space. Then open the doors and invite the new blessings inside.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following: Use Agate to ground and balance your energy. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to the most of our life experiences. Labradorite which is a companion crystal to change. It gives strength and helps us to persevere, and Peridot which brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change. It helps to sharpen the mind and enhances our self confidence and it can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts that are hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights. – Pauline R. Kezer


53:  Change is a constant part of life whether we like it or not. Too often we find ourselves fighting against it. However, when we embrace it and allow it to unfold instead of struggling with it, the transition goes more smoothly. Today the Ascended Masters are stepping in to help us clear the way for the changes that we are experiencing. Ask them to assist you in letting go of any old and rigid thinking that could be holding you back as it will ease our fears and our stress levels. Choose your battles wisely and remember that change will happen one way or the other. The key lies in HOW we deal with it. Work with what you can but don’t struggle with what you can’t. Remember that change is an adventure that keeps life interesting!


The Ascended Master  Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. He also helps us gain spiritual insight and teaches us that loving care is essential to navigating change. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And 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. She tells us: ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must face your fears and release the past. Change and circumstance are inviting you to choose a path. It is your choice so make the one that is best for you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following: Cerussite promotes grounding and teaches us how to understand the changes we are experiencing. Iolite is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion. It helps you stay true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others and Rose Quartz which  soothes the emotions and brings the necessary  peace of mind, self healing and self love we need when dealing with change.

Natural Flow: Cat’s Angel Message for May 2, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. – Lao Tzu


52:  Change is constant. It happens everywhere, to everyone, everyday. Sometimes it’s a gradual process that sneaks up on us and at other times is quite abrupt and can be a real wake up call. Either way change is a necessary thing that helps us to evolve and grow. The thing to remember is that change is part of the letting go process. By learning to let go of people, things and situations that no longer bring us joy we make room something better. ( new people, personal insights and new opportunities) Today the universe is asking us to release our fears and embrace change as an adventure. Don’t force or struggle, it’s time to go with the flow and let the ‘universal tide” carry you forward!


Archangel Jeremiel teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. The Ascended Master Solomon teaches us how to do things more efficiently as he guides us through difficult situations. Focus and efficiency help us during the letting go and helps us in our quest for personal evolution.  And the Egyptian goddess Maat who provides truth and clarification when we are confronted with confusing situations and /or  the motives of others. Her wisdom shows us the path to the changes we need to create to move forward.  Maat also protects us against deceit and manipulation. She says, “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stone color  for today is green. These stones correspond with the heart chakra and help to balance both the heart and emotions and strengthen the connection to self. Green crystals also help to rejuvenate our energy and promote growth and new beginnings.


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:  Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change. It helps to sharpen the mind and enhances our self confidence. Peridot can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts that are  hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.  The powerful energy of  blue-green Chrysocolla helps us during periods of change and challenging times. It brings smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity and calm. It helps us to be more self aware and promotes self confidence that inspires both creativity and motivation. Or try Malachite for more aggressive changes. It brings a sense of adventure and transformation as it shows us what is blocking our spiritual growth.
