Thought For The Day: April 19, 2019 “Emotions”

Happy Friday,

Allowing yourself to show emotion is healthy. Holding our emotions rigidly in check can increase depression, anger, stress and anxiety. It’s important to let people know how you feel, just as it’s important  to let them express how they feel. This communication process is necessary to build strong relationships both with others and yourself.

Dance Lightly With Life: Cat’s Angel Message for April 17, 2019 

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


Dance Lightly With Life: Today is your day to dance lightly with life, sing wild songs of adventure, soar your spirit, unfurl your joy. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


417:  Over the last few days we’ve been working on letting go and clearing the way for new growth.  This raises our energy level and  increases our positive vibes.  We have so many reasons to be positive, and the angels want us to know that we are doing a great job. Take some time for yourself today and engage in whatever makes your spirit sing. Days like this are good for us emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Read, hike, exercise, create, dance or make use of some alone time. The possibilities are endless! Whatever you choose to do will help to promote positive flow and allow you to ground, center and balance. Start your day with a big self hug and above all be kind to yourself!


Archangel Haniel 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. To assist in loving self care call on  Ascended Master Maitreya (aka Laughing Buddha) who promotes laughter, joy and peace, his joyful spirit helps us to release anxiety and worry. The Celtic goddess Nematona teaches us that healing can be found through nature as she  helps us replenish our energy. She says, ” I am the spirit of the sacred grove. I invite you to worship in my temple and feel the heartbeat of nature. This communion can heal a weary and battered soul and replenish your spirit with hope and divine peace.”


To enhance this peaceful vibration use Rose Quartz to promote self love and care. Turquoise promotes creative expression which allows to see the beauty in everything while strengthening our communication process and tempering our words with wisdom. Or if you need to relax, using Blue Calcite will help as it gently soothes the nerves and anxiety or Orange Calcite which helps to balance the emotions as it energizes and cleanses.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Accept the Challenge:  Cat’s Angel Message for April 14, 2019

Accept the Challenge:  Cat’s Angel Message for April 14, 2019

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


Presumption should never make us neglect that which appears easy to us, nor despair make us lose courage at the sight of difficulties. – Benjamin Banneker


414:  Our Spa Day from yesterday carries over into today. The Universe is asking us to release our worries and fears to make room inside for inner peace. Our spiritual helpers will be assisting us with exchanging the negative and stressful with peaceful and positive. It’s time to release what no longer serves your highest good or brings you joy. We often hold on to things out of fear. Fear of failure, new experiences, or of ourselves or sometimes there is even a kind of comfort in old, outdated situations. After all things stay the same if we don’t try. This releasing is imperative as it not only creates a better life, it makes us healthier in mind, body and spirit. We all deserve and are worthy of receiving good things. While this process is never easy, remember that you are a work in progress and that your personal evolution is important.  The key here is to trust in yourself and the Universe. You know what you need so allow yourself the ultimate freedom by cutting the cords that are holding you down. Accept the challenge!


Continue working with Archangel Michael. He will protect you through the changes and the letting go process. Michael blesses us with the knowledge of our own worth and provides direction and the courage we need to move forward. 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 Hindu goddess White Tara says, “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following; Lava Stone which is a powerful symbol of our own energy. It is a stone of rebirth and helps us to burn away unneeded layers so we can initiate new growth. Galena which helps us to stay grounded and centered. It helps to open the mind as it dissolves self-limiting thoughts from our past, and 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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

As a goddess of war, Athena often shows up in Greek legend to assist various heroes — Heracles, Odysseus and Jason all got a helping hand from Athena. In classical myth, Athena never took any lovers, and was often revered as Athena the Virgin, or Athena Parthenos. This is where the Parthenon temple got its name.

What if you could sit atop a cloud and watch the rain fall? In this activity, you can see what is actually happening in the sky before a rain storm. Clouds are formed when moisture is collected in the air. When you see a cloud, you’re looking at water vapor that has attached itself to condensation nuclei, dust and small particles in the sky

My deepest intuition has always been to hold on.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve held on too tightly to every attachment, and I’ve done everything in my power not to let go. To never say goodbye. To be steadfast in my devotion to anything and everything. White-knuckled, fists clenched, clawing for a stronghold that will allow me to resist change

The scent of this simple, natural “ugly” soap is invigorating and fresh. It’s especially nice to use during the warm weather months. This recipe makes several hand-rolled soap balls, depending on how big (or small) you want them to be. You can also make 2 round or square cakes of soap instead, if you wish.

EarthSky News: Moon in Winter Circle April 10 and 11

For the next few evenings – April 10 and 11, 2019 – look for the moon and Winter Circle (or Winter Hexagon) stars. It’s difficult to convey the humongous size of the Winter Circle that fills our western sky at dusk and nightfall. It even dwarfs the constellation Orion the Mighty Hunter, which makes up the southwest portion of this a great big lasso of 1st-magnitude stars.

WHAT ARE YOU PROCRASTINATING?

“The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.”
— Dawson Trotman

Procrastination seriously drains our energy and our morale. What remains undone nags at us. What are you avoiding?

Make a list of items and then review each one. Does it really need to be done? After you’ve reviewed your list, prioritize it and start one task today.

Please do not procrastinate taking one minute to write down your answer to this question. Capture it on paper and this will help build awareness, commitment and discipline.

“How soon not now, becomes never.”
— Martin Luther

“Talk does not cook rice.”
— Chinese proverb

“Do you know what happens when you give a procrastinator a good idea? Nothing!”
— Donald Gardner

It’s The Response: Cat’s Angel Message for April 6, 2019

It’s The Response: Cat’s Angel Message for April 6, 2019 

April Theme: We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


Our lives are defined not by the challenges we encounter, but by how we respond to those challenges. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


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 Ascended Master Maitreya (the Laughing Buddha) 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. And  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.  She says, ” While there is beauty and clarity found in turbulence remember not to let these storms become a destructive flood. Look for the light and use it to ascend to a higher level of thought.”


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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Seek With Eyes Open: Cat’s Angel Message for March 17, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. – Jawaharlal Nehru


317:  The focus of the last several days has been on releasing and letting go of what no longer serves you. Remember that your past experiences contain valuable lessons that once learned and let go make you a  better person. Fill these open spaces with positive choices and decisions that embody your truth and values. The Ascended Masters are also giving you a big high five today for making a conscious effort to create the room for new beginnings.Their message today is that you are on the right path and that your powers of manifestation are operating on a higher level. Be courageous and take advantage of this gateway and welcome the new opportunities and blessings that are headed your way. They key to benefiting from them lies in paying attention and having the courage to move forward when they are offered to us.


Archangel Raziel helps us manifest prosperity and abundance as well as growth on all levels. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate through the distractions that interrupt our focus in regard to our goals and priorities and Celtic Earth Mother Aeracura helps by clearing your heart and mind of cares and worries and fills them instead with knowledge of the abundant gifts that you currently hold and will receive. She teaches us to receive with gratitude and love,  she tells us ” Playfulness and a carefree spirit are the heart of true abundance. By sharing of yourselves it creates an energy that spreads and grows.” 


Our Sacred Stones for today are Jade which helps to restore emotional balance while keeping us grounded and it provides aid in problem solving and shows us the path to reaching our goals and actualizing our dreams.  Tiger’s Eye is a “feel better” stone that provides clarity of mind and increased intuition while promoting luck and prosperity. It also helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions, and sunny golden Citrine draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action by aiding in decision making and  creative problem solving.

You Are the Window: Cat’s Angel Message for March 16, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world. – George Bernard Shaw


316:  Just like cleaning out our emotional and spiritual selves to make room we do the same when we clear things from our physical world. Both of these clearing activities help us to make room for new abundance and growth. Think of it as “Multi-Level Spring Cleaning”. Today the Ascended Masters are asking us to continue the “Let It Go” process by making room in our physical realm. Take things that you no longer need/want or that are no longer relevant to who you are now, and re-gift, sell or donate. Add to this a few positive thoughts regarding your material supply and know that you are being taken care of.


Archangel Uriel promotes our spiritual understanding. He helps us to get to know ourselves better so that we can embrace the letting go process more fully. 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 Solomon helps us to let go in a more efficient manner which makes the process is less stressful overall. And the Roman goddess Vesta who oversees hearth and home 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 Stone for today is Okenite which can be used to help clear away obstacles and teaches us that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start and  Prehnite, which is used in Feng Shui, to help us let go of the physical things we no longer need.
