ThoughtCo: Jar Spells in Folk Magic

In many traditions of folk magic, particularly in North America, a spell is sealed inside a jar, bottle or another container. This serves a number of purposes – the first being that it keeps the magic concentrated, and prevents it from escaping before the spell has been completed. The other nice feature of a jar or bottle spell is its portability – you can take it anywhere you like, whether it’s buried under a doorstep, tucked into a hollow tree, placed gently upon your mantle, or dropped into a port-a-john

We’re smack in the middle of summer, and that means time at the beach, days in the sun, and unfortunately, for many of us, being eaten alive by mosquitoes. Next to humidity and sunburns, bug bites are definitely on the list of summer’s downsides

Elephant Journal: 25 Days of Gratitude for a Life Well-Lived.

I meditate early morning outside on my back lawn overlooking a lagoon that feeds into the Caribbean Sea.
It is serene. The waves come and go like the hundreds of thoughts that are running through my mind. I hear the birds having their first conversations and experience the new shades of amber appearing on the horizon. A soft cool breeze blows playfully through my hair.

MNN: 10 cats that act like dogs (but still have kitty traits)

There are dog people, cat people and people who want a little bit of both. Perhaps they don’t adore the standoffish-ness that many felines are known for, yet they crave the independence of a kitty.

EarthSky News: See Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown

Tonight, look for the constellation Corona Borealis, also known as the Northern Crown. You’ll need a pretty dark sky to see it, but, if you have one, the constellation is easy to pick out because it makes the shape of the letter C. Hopefully, tonight’s waxing crescent moon won’t be too intrusive, but remember that the last week of July 2019 will offer deliciously dark skies.

Patheos-Pagan: Erupting With Truth Under The New Moon

A while ago, I ran an experiment to look at the energetic blocks people carry in their chakras. By experiment I don’t mean in a measurable, white lab coat way. No, not at all. More like this: sitting at home with a pendulum and remotely connecting with 80+ strangers (well, people who like me on Facebook so loosely acquainted) who had volunteered to be energetically spied upon by me.

Inner Journey:

DAILY FORGIVENESS

“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind.”
— Isabelle Holland

We cannot avoid daily resentment and thoughts of guilt. They are a part of human nature. What we can do is release their grip on us. We can forgive others and ourselves daily.

Forgiveness requires nothing in return. There are no conditions. It gets rid of old baggage and clears up unfinished business. It leads us to a life of authenticity, lightness and directness. Forgiveness is the highest form of letting go of resentment and ego.

True forgiveness is more than an apology, understanding and acceptance. There is an element of recreating and re-imagining. There is a need to envision ourselves as more loving, interdependent, courageous and compassionate. Forgiveness requires honouring the sacred journey of learning about life – our life and others’.

“Whatever we have done, we can always make amends for it without ever looking back in guilt or sorrow.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Rainbows and Butterflies: Cat’s Angel Message for March 28, 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.


Rainbows and butterflies are themselves beautiful and highly symbolic, but they are also representative of all the small miracles of our life – the little things that are so easy to overlook, yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment to notice and to pay attention. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


328:  Prosperity and abundance comes in many forms and is more than just money. Too often people focus on money or material things instead of seeing the whole picture. The truth is that people who focus on everyday “tiny miracles” and live in gratitude are happier and more at peace and it is up to us  to recognize and acknowledge the true forms of prosperity and abundance when they arrive.  Today the Ascended Masters are reminding us that we live in the flow of Divine abundance. It surrounds everything we do and it’s important to to be aware of our prosperity on all levels. The old adage of “counting your blessings” is key for today. Acknowledge your personal prosperity and abundance and embrace the richness of your life!


Angels of Abundance include Archangel Raziel who helps to manifest prosperity and abundance, Barakiel who brings good fortune and helps us to open our hearts to receive. Gamaliel who brings gifts, blessings and abundance and Pathiel who helps to open the gates of positive manifestation. The Ascended Master Buddha who teaches us that the key to happy living resides in balancing all areas of life and that peace brought through moderation. And the Roman goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in it’s many forms as well as attract them. She tells us, ” Your faith in the bounty of the universe serves you well. Cast aside your worry and embrace the richness of your life because you have so much to grateful for.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following,  Larimar to help free you from addiction to the material world, Rose Quartz to help you see life through the eyes of love which helps us to appreciate what we have and the simple pleasures and Tree Agate (Dendritic), known as the stone of plentitude, both promotes abundance while showing us the “wealth” we already have.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Working Together: Cat’s Angel Message for March 26, 2019

Working Together: Cat’s Angel Message for March 26, 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.


Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. – Henry Ford


326:  One of the jobs that our angels perform is to insure that our needs are being met. While sometimes it may not feel like it, in all reality it is. In today’s society people tend to want more than they need to live. If you look around you can probably find a surplus of THINGS that you could do without. (I know I can) When the angels tell us that they are making sure sure our needs are met they are speaking of the necessities. Money to pay our bills, food, shelter, clothing etc. They are here to assist, not to provide excess. If we aspire to have more then we need we must to do our part to make it happen. Working with angels, ascended masters etc. is a partnership! Today we are reminded that our needs truly are being met. Take a moment to offer gratitude for life and for what you have!


Archangel Uriel can help us in any area of life. One of his powers lies in helping us to solve problems that crop up unexpectedly. He shows us the best way to work through them so that we free up our energy and invite progress. The Hindu deities Ganesh and Green Tara can also help. Ganesh helps us to avoid and remove any obstacles that fall into our path. He teaches us that such things are usually self imposed and that the core of these issues lies in our fear of moving forward. Green Tara who is sometimes called the “speedy ” goddess helps us when we need emergency aid, whether it’s spiritual or physical assistance, or money issues she hears and answers all requests. She says, “Come and sit beside me. Breathe and calm your mind and heart. In the center of your being lives the fire of your own creation, feel it and bring it forward. Allow it to bring with it your confidence and courage, do not fear, I am here with you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are: Nebula Stone which allows you to see the value of the things around you and promotes the appreciation of what you have. Labradorite which allows magic to happen, reduces stress and anxiety while letting you see all the possible solutions and Chrysoprase helps us to patterns and cycles that are holding us back and how to break them.

Forging Ahead: Cat’s Angel Message for November 22, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Forging Ahead: Cat’s Angel Message for November 22, 2018 

November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts.  Remember that POSITIVE opens and draws and NEGATIVE closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success. – John D. Rockefeller


1122:  The the secret to manifestation resides in faith. When we have faith in the Universe, our angels, and above all in ourselves we become the creator that we were meant to be. Our belief that good things flow into our lives allows doors to open and opportunities to emerge. The key lies in acknowledging the “tiny miracles” that take place (these are important), by staying centered in gratitude and by believing that you are worthy of the best. If worry creeps in simply take a moment to center yourself and turn your concerns over to the angels. Remember that new experiences and new paths are everywhere and that it is up you to embrace them.   Affirm that you are open to and ready to receive all the wonderful things that the Universe has in store for you!


The angel Pathiel works along side the Archangel Raziel . Together they can help us to open the gates of positive manifestation. They open our eyes and hearts so that we can see the good things we have and the ones headed our way. The Ascended Master Jesus embodies faith, he also provides a clear and direct line of communication to the Divine and he helps all who ask. And, the Celtic goddess Brigid helps to light our way by shedding light on things that have been hidden from us and teaches us new and creative ways of making things happen for ourselves She reminds us “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 is Mookite. This form of Jasper helps us to see things in a new perspective and keeps us move forward. It encourages us to be flexible in our thinking so that new experiences are easily accepted.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Enthusiasm Creates Energy: Cat’s Angel Message for July 11, 2018

Enthusiasm Creates Energy: Cat’s Angel Message for July 11, 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!


Enthusiasm is the energy and force that builds literal momentum of the human soul and mind. – Bryant H. McGill


711:  Today we continue our acknowledgement of gratitude and of our personal  journey thus far. Through the power of positive thought we are able to manifest some pretty amazing things. Sometimes the results are visible and sometimes they’re not. However, by by getting the proverbial ball rolling and our continued efforts to move forward we know that it’s simply a matter of time before we see tangible proof of the results. The Angels are letting us know how proud they are of what we have accomplished so far. The key is to gratefully acknowledge the tiny miracles when they arrive because over time they will complete the manifestation process.


 Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process. 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 Nike, the Greek goddess of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things we have accomplished. She tells us “Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”


The Sacred Stone for today is Chrysocolla which brings the energy of universal love into our personal experiences. This blue and green stone brings our inner strength and self awareness forward which keeps our energy balanced and our creative side working at top level.

 The Subject Of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for June 24, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

 The Subject Of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for June 24, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


What’s the subject of life – to get rich? All of those fellows out there getting rich could be dancing around the real subject of life. – Paul A. Volcker


624: Everyday we are blessed with wonderful things aka “tiny miracles”. It doesn’t have to be grand or over the top to be a miracle and often it’s the small, everyday ones that mean the most. The universe is always working behind the scenes to help us out. It’s part of  human nature to want more, however in reality we have what we need. Our vision of true “wealth” lies in our perception of self.  If we feel sorry for ourselves our energy takes a nosedive . However, if we hold onto our optimism and look for our “One Good Thing” then the tiny miracles are brought into crystal clear focus. Today, the Universe is reminding us that everyday life and it’s many blessings. Hold these tiny miracles close to your heart so that you draw upon them when the need arises.


Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. The Ascended Master Babaji teaches us that by detaching ourselves from the lure of material things we are able to draw strength from life’s simple pleasures and the Hindu Goddess Kali who shows us how to get out of our own way so that we can appreciate life’s true blessings. She tells us “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.”


Find strength today by using Turquoise, it helps to relieve us of our own self sabotage and the urge to play the martyr when we feel things aren’t going our way and Larimar which activates our creative thinking and helps us to go with the flow.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
