Spirit Library: The Moon ~ Your Creative Companion in Life

Want to be more creative, productive and feeling in the Flow of Life?

The Moon offers us natural gifts of consciousness that can be very helpful if we pay attention and use the Moon energy to plan our activities every month. All over the world, the Moon changes the tides of the oceans. Since the average adult body is made up of more than 60% water, it’s important to remember that we are also affected by the amazing energetic activity of the Moon. It is helpful to understand that the Moon is changing the tides on our inner level at the same time as it changes the outer world.

ThoughtCo: Recipes for the Beltane Sabbat

Beltane is a time to celebrate the fertility of the earth, and the return of spring blossoms and blooms. It’s a season of fire and passion, and when many of us honor the wild and lusty god of the forests. Beltane is a time for planting and sowing of seeds; again, the fertility theme appears. The buds and flowers of early May bring to mind the endless cycle of birth, growth, death, and rebirth that we see in the earth. Try one of these seven seasonally-appropriate recipes for your Beltane celebrations!

Pioneer Thinking: Dandelion Remedies

You can use dandelions as an herbal plant and a medicinal plant; it’s no longer just a weed. You can use the dandelion roots to make tinctures or teas. The dandelion flower can be used to make dandelion wine and the leaves can be chopped and added to salads, soups or stews.

Elephant Journal: The 6 Best Spiritual Teachings of Wayne Dyer to help us Get Over Ourselves.

It was six months after I separated from my ex-husband that I met Wayne Dyer for the first time.
He spoke at a World Summit in Pasadena, California and I was absolutely transfixed from the moment he stepped on stage.
Wayne was powerful beyond measure, as anyone familiar with his work knows. He had a candid, no nonsense way about him and infused some of the most profound teachings I heard that day with a heaping dose of humor.

EarthSky News: Moon, Mars, Pleiades on April 7 to 9 

Generally, any moon that’s less than one day old (or 24 hours past new moon) is hard to spot with the eye alone, or, sometimes, even with binoculars. For the most of the world, however, the moon was over a day old after sunset on Saturday evening (April 6, 2019).

Patheos-Pagan: Weekend Witchery: It Ain’t All Spells & Rituals

My life centers around magic. A good deal of which isn’t what you might call high magic. It ain’t all spells and rituals. The magic I do these days tends toward the everyday pursuits of hearth, health, and happiness. This weekend was a prime example of how magic shows up for me and how I work it.

Inner Journey:

WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT?

“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.”
— Sir John Lubbock

Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Why are you doing what you are doing?

Is it for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons? Is it for honest service with integrity? Maybe you’ll discover you don’t know. Perhaps you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose.

This is a great way to become more conscious. Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you will receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

Purpose

“The human soul, the world, the universe are laboring on to their magnificent consummation. We are not fashioned… marvelously for nought.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

There is a divine organization, an intelligence to all of creation – and here we are, a part of it all. It makes sense that we are here for a purpose. Life has meaning, and each life is meaningful.

Spirituality & Health: The Power of the Smile
BY RUTH WILSON

“I wonder, ‘Is it OK to be happy in a world filled with greed, environmental destruction, and other forms of violence?’ I then recall Mary Oliver’s words: ‘Happiness, if done right, is a kind of holiness.’ Yes, it’s OK to smile — even necessary to do so.

The Best Portion of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for February 9, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

The Best Portion of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for February 9, 2019 

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


That best portion of a man’s life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. – William Wordsworth


29:  In some respects we all share a very similar life purpose in that we all have something that we can share with others in need. These Humanitarian acts can be complex or as simple as a smile or hug, kind or encouraging words or just being a good listener. Today the Universe is reminding us that we are all qualified to do these small and simple things. Make time today to be there for someone else. Embrace self confidence and listen to your heart as it guides you on this path of service. If it resonates with your spirit you are on the right path. In helping others we often find that we are helping ourselves as well and small acts of compassion and kindness can make a big difference.


Archangel Zadkiel blesses us with mercy and compassion towards others and ourselves as he helps us to bring our divine light front and center. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. And the Greek goddess Artemis reminds us to use our intuitive skills to help others. She says “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are  Kunzite and Rhodonite. Kunzite is a  high vibration stone  that can help to create a balanced partnership with the Universe as it opens your heart to receiving Divine love. And 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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Stepping Up: Cat’s Angel Message for September 6, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Stepping Up: Cat’s Angel Message for September 6, 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!


Everyone is going to have to step up to the plate. – Warren Rudman


96: This month we are working on and with our Life Purpose. So how do you know what your purpose is? Well, that can sometimes be a little tricky. Some people intuitively know. while others are left scratching their heads. For those who already know the angels are letting you know that your help is urgently needed to create a more peaceful world during this crazy time. For those who aren’t sure what they can do to help the angels are saying to start small, do what you can for one person at a time. It’s time to lead by example and by sharing your unique light with those around you. Be a peacemaker, a leader, or a role model. Remember that all your needs are being supplied and manifested along the way!


Archangel Uriel: Earth changes Archangel Raphael: All aspects of healing, healers Archangel Michael: All aspects of your Life Mission Archangel Chamuel: Finding your Life Purpose Archangel Ariel: Environmentalism Use your angel stones, Angelite, Celestite, Apophyllite to connect with  the Archangels.

Dancing Through Life: Cat’s Angel Message for September 5, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Dancing Through Life: Cat’s Angel Message for September 5, 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!


Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time. – don Miguel Ruiz


95:  This month is all about discovering and working with our Life Purpose. Even if we don’t know what our “purpose “is the clues that provide that answer are there. many of the clues we need can be found in the changes that either just show up or that we initiate for ourselves. Many of these changes happen through the clearing process of letting go of outdated thoughts, feelings, people and things. Letting go tells the Universe that we are ready to move forward and continue our growth cycle. Remember that without change we don’t grow and it is through growth that our Life Purpose comes into focus. Today the angels are telling us that the time has come to embrace the changes that we have been working on or putting off. It is it time to step up and start creating the life you want and acknowledging what really fills your spirit to the fullest!


Archangel Jeremiel is reminding us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you to see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future. 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 Yoruban Goddess Oya helps us navigate the winds of change. ” My child change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.” 


Use Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone, Andalusite) to help you find harmony and balance while bringing your purpose more clearly into focus.

 The World Needs You: Cat’s Angel Message for September 1, 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!


Love one another and help others to rise to the higher levels, simply by pouring out love. Love is infectious and the greatest healing energy. – Sai Baba


91: Today the Universe are calling on all Lightworkers. Our world is in need of healing right now so take some time today and send loving, healing energy out to those in need. Even if Lightworking isn’t your calling you can still help by sending  out peaceful, loving  vibes to those around you or to those who need it. We all have the power to make a difference by promoting a positive view to those around us. The Universe is telling us that it’s a great day to lead by example and don’t be afraid to let yourself shine.


 Archangel Chamuel can help you find your life purpose as well as helping to promote peace on all levels. He reminds us that peace starts with us as individuals and as it grows it should be shared. The Ascended Master Vywamus helps all Lightworkers.  He teaches us that change can be an opportunity to heal. And the Celtic Goddess Brigid teaches us that peace encompasses many things, 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 and help others as well.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Golden Beryl (Heliodor). This warm, sunny stone  helps us to find clarity and illumination as it eliminates confusion of purpose.

A Happier Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 9, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

A Happier Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 9, 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!


The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. – Helen Keller


79:  Our message today involves the giving of sacred service through our life purpose. For some this means offering themselves and their skills to the community or to the world. Yet for others sacred service revolves around their partner, children, family or extended family. Every day, whether we are aware of it or not we have the ability to make a difference or influence someone’s life in a positive way . The Angels are letting us know that we are on the right path and that even if we’re not exactly sure of what our life purpose is. The important thing is that we are making a difference in our world!


Archangel Chamuel shows us the important parts of our lives and helps us to create the  foundations we need to build strong relationships (friends, love career etc). He also helps to shed light on our life purpose.  The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps to free us from the distractions that can keep us from embracing our path with confidence and the Celtic Goddess Brigid helps us find our direction as she ignites our inner creative fire. 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 Stone for the day is Sugilite. This stone brings purple ray energy to earth. It embodies spiritual love and wisdom and assists in opening the chakras. This stone can also help you find the answers to “Why am I here and What is my purpose?”

A Bountiful Moment

The answers to your questions, dreams, desires are around you everywhere you just need to be aware.

Daily Thought: It is easy to feel like you don’t have the answers or become overwhelmed at a situation that is new. But the answer to what is creating the anxiety is there right in front of you. All you have to do is sit still for a moment and listen. Quieting your mind and being open to the answers that surround you is the challenge not the situation you are facing.

Daily Practice: When you are faced with a challenge today look at it clearly by quieting your mind and looking past what is creating the fear. Take a deep breathe in and slowly release it two to three times. Now relook at the situation and act on the solution that enters your mind. Move through the situation by acting not thinking.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Paganism as an Orientation

Back at the end of February I came across this excellent piece by Heron Michelle titled Witchery as an Orientation and Sacred Mission. It’s her story of how being a witch isn’t a choice for her – it’s part of who and what she is. The essay is worth your time to read in its entirety – here’s a key quote:

Witchery isn’t a choice for me. There is a being-ness to witchery, the aptitude for deeply, broadly sensing a far greater “normal” than others … Those with an orientation of witchery, naturally glide past the veil of illusion as our second-nature. This tends to become isolating, as muggle-society pushes us to the fringes, and calls us “crazy.”

Inner Journey: Open to Awareness

“Mindfulness means moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness. It is cultivated by refining our capacity to pay attention, intentionally, in the present moment, and then sustaining that attention over time as best we can. In the process, we become more in touch with our life as it is unfolding.”
— Myla & Jon Kabat-Zinn

Why do we want to become more aware?

If we remain unaware, we:
•repeat the past,
•remain stuck in relationships,
•live superficial, literal and one dimensional lives,
•lack experiences of love and beauty, and
•have limited connection to others and the universe.

With awareness, we are fully involved with life. Awareness is sensing deeply and sensitively for what really is. To do this, we need to approach the present as totally new. When we can be open and attentive in each moment, we begin to free ourselves from the conditioning of the past and the suffering that it so often brings.

“If moment by moment you can keep your mind clear then nothing will confuse you.”
— Sheng Yen

Wake up! Remember what excites you! Think of these things, those friends, and the adventures that can be yours! Focus. Care. Fantasize. Imagine. It’s all so near. Speak as if you’re ready. Paste new pictures in your scrapbook, on your vision board, and around your home and office. Physically prepare for the changes that you wish to experience in your life. You’ve done this before. You know it works. You’re due for an encore. It’s time to amaze. That’s why you’re there.

And it’s why I’m here
