Take Time: Cat’s Angel Message for August 21, 2019

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month.  You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Take time to play! Ask for what you want. Laugh. Live loudly. Be avid. Learn a new thing. Be Yourself! – Mary Anne Radmacher


821:  What do you want from your life? That is the question that the Universe is asking us today. The truth is that we are the Captain of our own ship and the Universe and our helpers are there to help us navigate and to assist in the journey. Remember that you are a powerful creator and it’s within your power to create the life you want. Focus on the things that are important and truly matter. It’s ok to let something go or just let it be.  If you look at your life and your path and feel like you are missing something take a step back. Maybe it’s time to sail out of your comfort zone and take action. Surround yourself with good vibes and invite new people and opportunities. ” Expect success and focus on what truly matters to you.


Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews and changes. He can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently as well as the areas that need attention and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain a clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement. 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 set aside things we have no control over and to help navigate the winds of change, the Yoruban Goddess Oya tells us ” 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.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Galena helps us to stay grounded and centered. It helps to open the mind as it dissolves self-limiting thoughts from our past that can get in our way during the manifestation process.
  • Yellow Jasper helps provide clarity on mental and emotional levels. It also starts us in a positive direction while helping us to find realistic and workable solutions that keep us moving toward our goals.
  • Larimar which helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Opinions Are Ok…. But.. :Cat’s Angel Message for July 2, 2019

Opinions Are Ok…. But.. : Cat’s Angel Message for July 2, 2019

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


Having a personal opinion is great. Believing that one’s personal opinion is absolute truth leads to most of the world’s troubles. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


72:  Following our  path requires us to have positive focus, perseverance. We must also trust in ourselves and in the Universe because this helps us to make the best possible decisions for our personal evolution. As we travel we receive an abundance of information. Often it comes in bits and pieces while at other times we find ourselves buried in it.  Some of this information is good and some……. well…… not so much. Part of our job is to sift through this information and pick out that which will best serve us and to throw away that which does not. Remember, everyone will have an opinion. Our message from the angels today is “In your heart you’ll know what’s best and what direction you need to take.”

If you find yourself blocked perform a self check and ask yourself:

*Is this where I want to be?

*What is keeping me from moving forward? (people, places, things)

*What positive steps do I need to take to continue my journey?

Act on your own intuition and divine guidance and if you need help…. ask!


Archangel Jeremiel provides us with insight into our lives and the changes we need to make to move forward. If you ask him for help he will tell you to look to your dreams for answers. He can also help you to release any fears that you may have about the future. 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 Hindu God Ganesh removes any and all obstacles that lie in our way. He teaches us that our barriers are quite often self imposed. He tells us “Never be afraid to move forward or to let go of what no longer serves you or brings you joy.” While doing this may seem difficult or even impossible you effort will produce beneficial cleansing and healing.”


Our Sacred Stones for the today include the following:

  • Green Calcite helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. 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.
  • Hematite has a strong connection to the earth element and helps us stay grounded and promotes feelings of safety. Hematite also brings mental clarity through focus and concentration which is essential letting go process which accompanies change.
  • Iolite (Also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst)  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.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

It’s Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 1, 2019

It’s Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 1, 2019

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


Life is a song – sing it. Life is a game – play it. Life is a challenge – meet it. Life is a dream – realize it. Life is a sacrifice – offer it. Life is love – enjoy it. – Sai Baba


71: As we navigate the paths that make up our life we find that everyone has an opinion about how, when, where and why we should do things. The truth is that the only opinion that matters is our own and we are the only ones who really knows what’s in our hearts. However, well meaning people (and sometimes not so well meaning) will try to push us off our path simply because they don’t agree with or understand what we need. So take the opinions of others with a grain of salt. During this new cycle the Universe will be helping us by providing direction and guidance that will help us on our journey. You will know that you are headed in the right direction when it makes your spirit sing and your heart soar!


Archangel Michael can help in all aspects of your life’s path and purpose. He understands that while following our path is exciting it can also be a little scary when we head off in new directions. He wants us to know that he is always here to provide protection and help us find our courage. The Ascended Master Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. while his “big brother” energy surrounds us with loving protection. He can also help us when dealing with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path.  And the Hawaiian Goddess Pele teaches us how to keep things in perspective, she says “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies 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.
  • Dioptase which helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action
  • Fire Agate allows you to embrace feelings of safety and trust as you navigate your path. It keeps us grounded and offers support when times get hard. This stone is also beneficial in returning the harmful and negative energy sent by others. it returns that energy in a way that the person who sent it understands the harm they have caused.

Bright blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Ask Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for May 26, 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!


Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. – Albert Einstein


526:  Let’s start today with a question, “What is your heart’s true desire?” The answer to this question lies within each of us and it is up to us to find the answer. Today, the angels are asking us to look within and be honest with ourselves about what we truly want. Take a little time today for some soul searching and ask yourself:

*What do I REALLY want from (life, myself, others)?

*Am I REALLY happy, or am I just going through the motions?

*What can I DO to change my situation for the better?

It’s important to be honest with ourselves because we too often spend our time and energy living someone else’s desire. Living your heart’s desire does not make you selfish, uncaring or a bad person. It does however create inner peace, confidence and a happier and spiritually healthier YOU!


Archangel Michael helps us to find the courage and direction that we need to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence. He can help you to get  back on track and move forward on your personal journey. The Ascended Master El Morya helps us increase our faith and keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen as we navigate life’s path. The Hindu goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit. “


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following. Sodalite is a stone for the mind and encourages clear and calm thinking. It helps us to be objective and helps us to release old mental conditioning and outdated thought patterns as it boosts our self confidence and esteem. Rhodocrocite promotes a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity and Metamorphosis Quartz helps to bring about change and personal transformation.

ThoughtCo: Disposal of Ritual Offerings

A common question that comes up is the matter of how to dispose of offerings made during a ritual once the ritual has concluded. Disposal methods may vary, depending on a few things. For instance, does your particular magical tradition require you to dispose of offerings in a certain way? Also, what is the offering?

Coffey Talk: Free As A Bird

One of my very favorite books of all time is “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach. This book was first published in 1970, and it has held up to the test of time, it is a true classic. If you’ve never experienced this beautiful story, it is a must-have for your home library. If you’ve read it before, read it again.

I can’t even count how many times I’ve read it, and gotten something more out of it each time. I have such an affinity for seagulls because of this wonderful little book! Jonathan is an example for each of us, to follow our dreams, to strive to do better, to be true to ourselves. The book includes amazing photography by Russell Munson.

While working on a talk about this book I discovered that Richard Bach recently found his original last chapter, which was never published! He has now added it to the “Complete Edition” version of the book.

As a thinking, feeling human, I’ve made a discovery.
Yes, self-care is important.

However, the self-care it seems we really need isn’t just regular exercise, drinking smoothies, and getting massages.
What I’m talking about is emotional self-care because basically, life is hard.

MNN: Synchronized fireflies gather for a ‘rave’ in the Great Smoky Mountains

Every June, Elkmont Ghost Town — an abandoned resort ghost town in Great Smoky Mountains National Park — lights up with the world’s largest gathering of Photinus carolinus, a species of firefly that is famous for its synchronous flashing behavior.
Inspired by these twinkling insects, photographer Harun Mehmedinovic uses his surreal time-lapse techniques to carefully document the insects’ “odd forest rave party” in a short film.

Patheos-Pagan: The Magical Spice Rack: How To Work With The Correspondences In Your Cupboards

I plunder my cupboards for my magical works so much that my “magical spice rack” has become a cliche. It’s a cliche for a good reason, though. My spice rack and tea cabinet always have the perfect ingredients for my spellwork. Do you need a pinch of heat in your magic? Sprinkle in some cayenne pepper. Need some more comforting aspects in your spell? Grab a lavender tea bag, and rip that baby open.

A Note from the Universe

Of course the most deceptive of all illusions is very likely space.

You know, that thing between “here” and “there” that would have you see yourself alone, instead of as the bridge between them.

That medium between you and the rest of the world that disguises your role in creating it.

You know, that veil through which the physical senses must explore your chiseled secrets.

See? Aliens are the least of your worries…

Effort

“You can’t always get what you want.
But if you try sometimes,
You just might find
You get what you need.”

-Mick Jagger and Keith Richards song, 1969

It usually takes something to motivate us to make that effort. It’s like we begin with the end in mind – that’s our goal, what we are working towards. But along the way, things might change. We certainly change and grow from the experience – and maybe that’s just what we really need. We can find some of the most amazing spiritual messages in our own music. Are we listening?

-Lissa Coffey

Different Roads: Cat’s Angel Message for April 24, 2019

Different Roads: Cat’s Angel Message for April 24, 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.


People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost. – H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


424:  Today the Universe is asking us to stop and consider what is important to us. Our lives and personal well being are a work in progress, and everyday we are faced with choices and options that help us on our path. Too often we put a temporary band-aid on something and hope it holds or we find ourselves wasting time on things (people, activities, energy) that keep us from moving forward. The key to our personal evolution lies in focusing on the things that serve us best. Making choices that resonate with our inner core and bring us a sense of fulfillment and joy keep us true to ourselves and on the right  path. Connect with your spiritual helpers today and ask for help or just talk with them. By strengthening your connections it becomes easier to manifest your desires and goals into reality.


Archangel Michael helps us to find the courage and direction that we need to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence. The Ascended Master Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He helps us when dealing with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path. And, the Hawaiian goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. She  says, “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include: Labradorite to relieve fear and insecurity caused by old hurts and disappointments. It also strengthens our faith as it removes the projections of others that are holding us back. Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions and 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. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
