The Herbal Muse: Saffron May Be as Effective as Ritalin in Treating ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects approximately 3%–7% of school age children and about 4% of the adult population. The standard therapy consists of stimulant drugs such as methylphenidate (Ritalin) which produce a “dopaminergic effect,” meaning they act on neurons to promote an increased release of dopamine.

Elephant Journal: 6 Key Ways for Empaths to Unplug & Recharge their Batteries.

Alone. Finally.

Pioneer Thinking: Spring Foraging

Spring is a time for rebirth. A call to leave the darkness of winter behind and head outside for sunshine and longer days. The shift from winter to spring happens quickly, providing the baseline truth in the phrase “spring has sprung”. You may be shoveling the driveway one day and then see a skunk cabbage pushing up through the snow the next. The plant world is undergoing the transformation from winter storage and dormancy to spring growth and expansion. This makes spring a wonderful time to get outside and forage.

EarthSky News: Moon and Winter Circle March 13-15 

These next several evenings – March 13, 14 and 15, 2019, the waxing moon is moving inside the Winter Circle, sometimes called the Winter Hexagon. It’s a large circular (hexagonal) star asterism – not one of the 88 official constellations, but just a noticeable pattern of stars – consisting of six 1st-magnitude stars in six separate constellations:

Inner Journey: 

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART

“To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling. Logic can tell you superficially where a path might lead to, but it cannot judge whether your heart will be in it.”
— Jean Shinoda Bolen

“When you have compassion and surrender to your own heart, you are surrendering to the hidden power in your heart, God. You are surrendering to love, because God is Love, the cohesive force of the universe that connects us all. Surrender is not just a religious concept; it’s a power tool for listening to the voice of your spirit and following its directions. When you surrender your head to your heart, you allow your heart to give you a wider, higher intelligence perspective. Remember the phrase, ‘The real teacher is within you.’ Very simply, that teacher is to be found in the common sense of your own heart.”
— Sara Paddison

“Surrender is faith that the power of love can accomplish anything… even when you can not foresee the outcome.”
— Deepak Chopra

Energy

“The greater the tension, the greater is the potential. Great energy springs from a correspondingly great tension of opposites.”

-Carl G. Jung (1875-1961)

It’s all about balance. If we are in that “go go go” mode all the time then we burn ourselves out. We need time for silence, we need time to recharge our batteries. Then we can come at life from a new, fresh perspective.

-Lissa Coffey

Beliefnet: Creating Your Psychic Protection Shield

We all need to shield ourselves before we go out the door. Just as we put on clothes to protect our body and carry an umbrella in the rain, we must put on our psychic shield to protect our energy. Creating your psychic protection shield should be done every day. In the morning, make time to create your shield. White light works best, but there are a variety of visualizations you can use to enhance your psychic shield. Try some of these this week and see how much stronger you feel.

Creating Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for February 27, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

Creating Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for February 27, 2019 

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


Life isn’t about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself.
– George Bernard Shaw


227:  Today the Universe is asking us to focus on our Life Path. Your Life Path is the most important number in your numerology chart. It is derived from your birth date and it reveals your direction and the lessons you need to learn in this lifetime. Each person’s life path is unique. While we may travel together at times there always comes a point when we branch off to blaze a new trail. Our thoughts and focus guides us and helps us to navigate our chosen path. By setting our intentions to the highest level and expecting the best to happen good things come our way. The truth is that you are the only one who really knows whether the path you currently walk is the right one.


As you follow your path be sure that you occasionally do a self review. Ask yourself:

•Am I where I want to be?

•Does this resonate and bring me joy?

•Is there anything I need to change?

• If it feels good and like where you are headed keep moving forward.But if something feels off don’t be afraid to make the necessary adjustments. Your path should always bring you joy.


Interested in finding your Life Path number? Visit life Path Numbers by Michael McClain: http://www.astrology-numerology.com/num-lifepath.html


Archangel Jeremiel guides us through releasing fear of the future. He is also the angel to call on life reviews and changes. He helps us to clearly see the life changes that we have missed and how learn from past mistakes and move on. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. And the Egyptian goddess Maat shows us the truth and motivations behind all situations. This helps us on our path by allowing us to navigate freely. 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 for today is the Life Path Crystal (a long, thin, clear Quartz Crystal with on or more completely smooth sides.) This crystal helps us to access our path and our direction and it promotes going with our natural flow and following our our bliss.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Bright Feelings: Cat’s Angel Message for January 27, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

Bright Feelings: Cat’s Angel Message for January 27, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


I am suffocated and lost when I have not the bright feeling of progression. – Margaret Fuller


127:  Everyone’s “Life Path” is unique and once we set our course we tend to follow where it leads us. Often we’re alone, sometimes taking side paths as we grow and change and sometime merging with the paths of others. There are even time when we leave our path altogether and wander. Wandering can be a good thing as we forge ahead and create  new paths.  However, sometimes we wander off the path and become lost and have trouble finding our way back. Today our spiritual helpers are reminding us that if we are feeling lost or feel that we have wandered off our path and are without direction, that we simply need to ask for help. Call upon your goddess, the angels or the Universe and allow them to guide you back onto the path. Remember that our paths do change so look for signs both visual and intuitive to help you. Change help us to grow so believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to strike off in a new direction or side path if it calls to your heart. Take time today to acknowledge your personal growth and plant or tend to your thought seeds. Above all, give yourself a BIG hug. You are doing fine and any assistance you need is only a request away!


Archangels Chamuel and Michael are here to help today. Chamuel helps us to recover what is lost. If you feel like you have lost your way he can help and Michael provides guidance and direction as he restores our belief in ourselves. The Celtic goddess Brigid is the female equivalent of Archangel Michael. She also offers guidance and direction as she helps you back onto your path or helps you find a new, more fulfilling one. She says “Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way.”


Our Sacred Stones for the day include Amethyst which can be used for both Brigid and Archangel Michael. This is a protective crystal that helps us to cope with both change and new beginnings. Carnelian is also associated with the goddess Brigid. Brigid helps to stoke the fires of inspiration and creative thought. Both of which are necessary as we navigate out path and Snowflake Obsidian which reduces feelings of fear and helps us with focus and clarity.

Take Every Step: Cat’s Angel Message for September 2, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Take Every Step: Cat’s Angel Message for September 2, 2018 

September’s Theme: This month will involve working on our Life Mission/ Purpose. Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t.  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you.  It can be simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better. Sometime’s the small things are the best!


Standing in the inspiring vision of my future, I boldly take every step – large and small – with courage and intent. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


92: This month we will be working in areas that relate to our Life Path. Just like when you start any other “project” working with your Life Path requires faith in yourself to make things happen. Even if you aren’t exactly sure what your Mission is (not knowing is OK), be assured that if something compels you to take action and feels right that you are on the right path. For example you may feel moved to help someone who really needs it, do volunteer work, helping out a disabled or elderly neighbor or something along these lines. Get the picture? Be open to what your inner guidance tells you and you will always be headed in the right direction.


Archangel Chamuel assists in all areas of our path. He can help you find the direction and guidance that you will need to move forward on this journey of self discovery. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life which can get in our way. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to set aside things we have no control over and The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi is letting you know that,  ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is the  Life Path Crystal ( along thin, clear quartz w/ one or more absolutely smooth sides). This can help to access our life purpose.They help you to go with the flow and follow what your soul wants not what your ego wants.

A Matter of Paying Attention: Cat’s Angel Message for July 27, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

A Matter of Paying Attention: Cat’s Angel Message for July 27, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle. – Paulo Coelho


727:  In the past month we have been working on opening and strengthening the communication centers that allow us to receive guidance. Today the Angels are letting us know that we are on the right path and giving us a big thumbs up. They are also reminding us that by honoring our personal truth  combined with a willingness to really “listen” to our inner wisdom and the guidance we receive that we see our path in more detail. An optimistic and adventurous attitude doesn’t hurt either and will make our path easier to navigate. The Universe is on our side and wants us to succeed so if you need help or clarification….. ASK!


We will keep working with Archangel Michael today. If you ask for his assistance Michael can not only clear our energy field but can help quiet the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. The Ascended Master Saint Germain works with Archangel Michael. He provides courage and direction as well as helping us to deal with  well meaning people who try to push us away from our path 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 you will find treasures long forgotten. These treasures can form the foundations that you need.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Amethyst. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies, which it transmutes into something more positive while dispelling anxiety and fear It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making. It is also connected to Archangel Michael which allows us to feel his energy and the energy of divine love.

Challenges and  Distractions: Cat’s Angel Message for July 24, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Challenges and  Distractions: Cat’s Angel Message for July 24, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there. – Kofi Annan


724: Sometimes things happen that make it difficult to stay on our chosen path. Every day brings us new challenges and distractions (OOOoo look! Shiny!!) These distractions often come in the form of well meaning people who “just want to help”. (We all know a few of these right?) Just remember that it’s YOUR path. Be honest with yourself because  you are the only one who knows what’s best for you. If the advice you are given doesn’t mesh or is an attempt to push in a direction you’d rather not go, remind yourself that the choice is yours to make. There are also times when we question ourselves and the guidance we receive. This can happen during moments of self doubt or fear. If this happens today (or any day) take a moment to center and focus. Then ask yourself “Is this really what I want?” or “What is best for me?” Listen to the guidance that you receive and above all trust in yourself!


Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears and guides us through issues of self doubt. He helps us to find our courage and our direction. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress, confusion or when we are about head off in the wrong direction.  The Ascended Master Saint Germain works with Archangel Michael. He also provides courage and direction as well as helping us deal with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path and the Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us find our truth by being honest with ourselves about what we want and where we want go. 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 Stones for today are  Pietersite (Tempest stone) to aid in working through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens the connection to our intuition and helps us see the truth and  Orange Calcite today to help balance the emotions and dispel fear and anxiety. It invites us to embrace our full potential and promotes problem solving.

 A Fulfilling Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 22, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 A Fulfilling Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 22, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Where are you going? Where does your path lead? You can never know the future, yet wandering aimlessly is unlikely to be the source of a fulfilling life. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


722:  Your path is like a road trip. It consists of many sights and attractions, some good and some bad. We encounter bumps, potholes and roadblocks mixed in with some truly breathtaking and inspiring scenery. We even find side paths that lead us on a merry chase all the while teaching us valuable lessons along the way. However, in order to grow we need to keep moving forward. This requires focus on our desired destination, even if we’re not quite sure how to get there. The key is to stay strong and believe in yourself. Today the Angels are reminding us that life is full of unlimited possibilities and we have unlimited potential. You are an amazing being who is worthy of the best the Universe has to offer!


Archangel Chamuel can help you find your way if you have wandered off on a side path and feel lost or unsure if this is the place you want to be. Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of the things that have held us back and the Egyptian Goddess Maat is an excellent adviser during times when we are confused or unsure of situations or choices that are presented to us. She tells us “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking and  Rhodonite  to help balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence.
