1022: Today we will continue to work on our positive thought process. Success lies in staying true to yourself and to your goals as it is this powerful belief that helps you manifest miracles and opportunities. Only you know what is best for you and your own personal evolution. Your faith, both in yourself and in the Universe will also play a huge role. Remember to try and let go of any doubts, worries or fears that pop up. This is not always easy but if done a step at a time it becomes more manageable. If you feel at loose ends make the time to ground, clear, center and just breathe. The Universe is always here to support you and your efforts, and by allowing them to assist you your manifestation increases tenfold!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Gabriel helps us to access our inner wisdom and shows us how it can guide and inspire us and teaches us the importance of communication on all levels. This helps us to overcome our fears so that we can complete the things we start and achieve positive results during times of transformation and change.

The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter helps to release worry and anxiety. It clears our minds and energy centers and allows the good to get through.

The Roman Goddess Abundantia teaches us to appreciate abundance in its 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.”

Today’s Sacred Stones 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.

Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change as it helps to sharpen the mind and enhance our self confidence. Peridot can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts that are hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.

Calm and soothing Tangerine Quartz helps to balance the emotions and enhances our connection to divine inspiration. It fills us with hope and joy as it restores our feelings of self worth.

The only starlike object to outshine Jupiter in the evening sky right now is the red planet Mars, but Mars sits low in the eastern sky at evening dusk and nightfall.

Inner Journey: THE POWER OF ACCEPTANCE

“It is permissible to take life’s blessings with both hands provided thou dost know thyself prepared in the opposite event to take them just as gladly. This applies to food and friends and kindred, to anything God givesand takes away… As long as God is satisfied do thou rest content. If he is pleased to want something else of thee, still rest content.”
— Meister Eckhart

Our life begins to change in magical ways when we open to the experience of life AS IT IS. With acceptance, we stop fighting what is happening. And this creates space, an opening for new relationships to unfold.

Explore unconditionally saying yes to the facts of life. Accept your past and where you are now. Unconditional acceptance is unconditional love and this is healing.

“Sometimes what seems like surrender isn’t surrender at all. It’s about what’s going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain ofnot being true to it is far, far greater.”
— Nicholas Evans

Daily Wisdom

Films
“In my films I always wanted to make people see deeply. I don’t want to show things, but to give people the desire to see.”

-Agnes Varda, in John Robert Columbo, “Popcorn in Paradise” 1979


I quote Gandhi quite a bit in WisdomNews. We can learn a lot from what this very wise man had to say. And we can also learn from how he lived his life. Fortunately, there is a beautiful movie, called “Gandhi,” which gives us some insight into his character. It’s amazing that in basically 3 hours we can see the kinds of things that Gandhi experienced. It gives us insight into our own nature, and our own potential for growth.

These skills can become lost in the shuffle as we navigate the path of life.  However, by putting them to use it jump-starts our energy flow. Which in turn creates opportunities and synchronicities that help us to create and manifest long term benefits. Using our natural talents strengthens our connection to our personal truth and the values that are important to us. They also boost our creative thinking and problem-solving skills and intuitive abilities. Be sure to pay attention and explore new directions. Natural talents also make us feel good about ourselves and can bring happiness into our everyday lives through gratitude and mindfulness. If you need help or guidance from the Universe just ask and above all, remember to believe in yourself!

Inner Journey:

You are complete

“Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.”
— Wayne Dyer

Close your eyes and imagine that everything you are is enough. You don’t need to be better or different — you’re great just as you are. Can you experience the peace and contentment that owning that perspective brings?

Moving into such total acceptance does not mean that we stop growing. When we can accept who we are now, we open the doors to our own inspiration to do and be even more!

“Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.”
— Julia Cameron

Of what you understand, and of what you don’t, made manifest.

Look to the beauty for truth. And to what hurts, for its beauty.

Promises
“An honest man’s word is as good as his bond.”

-Cervantes (1547-1616)

 
When we make a promise, it is important that we keep it. When we do, then we are being true to the person we made the promise to, and also true to ourselves. Our words carry weight. And our actions have consequences. It we want to be trusted, we must be trustworthy

Energy To Replenish: Cat’s Angel Message for June 20, 2020

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self, etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


The energy rises to fill your being with the things that you need to shine! ~Cat


621: Today is the Summer Solstice (aka Litha or MidSummer) which makes today the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. This Solstice packs some pretty powerful energy and by tapping into this power source we can boost our own powers of manifestation. The key is to believe in yourself as well as the creator. The stronger our belief is the more we are able to clearly see the blessings and miracles around us. Even the small everyday ones become clearer, which are more important by far. The ancient Romans honored the goddess Fortuna on this day and this is a good time to acknowledge the blessings you have as well as the ones that are coming and the angels are asking us to honor the earth and all living creatures today by sending out peaceful and healing energy.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include deities associated with the Summer Solstice like Sulis Minerva, Apollo, Horus, Athena, Kali, and Isis.

 

The Greek Goddess Athena embodies change and transformation through experience and learning. She tells us ” You are a warrior in your own right. Every day you choose the battles that will fight so make the wisest choices you can, each choice will help lead you to victory.”

 

The Hindu Goddess Kali is a dark mother and goddess of death. Each time we let go of something that no longer serves us we are in truth embracing a “little death” and fear often accompanies the letting go process. One of Kali’s greatest lessons is through our worst fears lies the freedom we gain in conquering them. She says: “Dreams must be created with focus and intent. I will help you to embrace the courage and motivation that you need to see things through to a successful conclusion.”

 

The Egyptian goddess Isis reminds us that growth requires patience and that change and growth are an ongoing part of life. “Be grateful for the baby steps that move you along your path, for they are milestones on your inner journey. Celebrate these steps and appreciate every kindness shown as they are all part of a grand celebration!”

 

Archangel Jophiel teaches us to slow down and appreciate the beauty around us. By taking the time to simply breathe and absorb “beauty” it can help open our communication lines by lowering the barriers we have put up.

 

The Ascended Master Mother Mary provides us with all forms of healing. She surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love as she imparts feelings of peace and safety as she gently heals the dark, hidden places within while showing us the path that leads to compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others.


Sacred Stones for the Summer Solstice include:

Amber to enhance your earth connection and to promote grounding. It is also a great healing stone (it’s actually tree resin) that helps to remove energetic impurities from the body.

Jade helps us to understand that you are a spiritual being on the very human journey we call life. it stimulates knowledge and ideas.

Sunstone has a strong connection to light and helps to harness the re-energizing power of the sun during meditation and everyday life. It is linked to all benevolent deities and brings good fortune and luck.

Tiger’s Eye works with the energies of both earth and sun, it also helps with grounding while drawing spiritual energies to earth.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

The Necessary Pieces: Cat’s Angel Message for June 12, 2020

The Necessary Pieces: Cat’s Angel Message for June 12, 2020

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self, etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Handcrafting our dreams should not be rushed. Set things in motion and then let them unfold. Having all the necessary pieces will ensure your success. ~Cat


612: Our prayers and request often resemble a puzzle which can’t be completed until all the pieces are in place. This is called Divine timing. Human beings are an impatient bunch and have been conditioned to expect everything to happen immediately.  However, forcing something to happen too quickly usually means that we are gifted a few bites and miss out on enjoying the “whole enchilada” due to our own impatience.  Today we are being reminded that our dreams do not truly manifest until the Universe knows that we are ready to handle them. We can help divine timing by staying focused on our goals, having faith in the Universe and ourselves, and by grabbing the opportunities that do present themselves to build a firm foundation to support our dreams. By building a strong foundation we ensure our success. Remember that patience is the key to all forms of manifestation and a positive attitude helps to open the doors and pathways you need to move forward!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Sandalphon hears all requests and makes sure that they get to the Angel or Ascended Master who is best able to handle them. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!). Sandalphon also provides us with an emotional boost of courage. This is important as it helps us to make bold decisions that will help us on our path.

 

The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen.

 

The Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to find the answer to the question “How shall I live my life?” She tells us that every moment gives us opportunities for growth. ” When you are filled with indecision you move away from yourself and your power as a creator. Indecision silences your ability to hear your own inner wisdom. If you need my help just ask and I will shower you with energy that will tip the scales in the direction of what you desire.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Amber to help us to attain our goals with a clear focus and bestows a positive mental state and helps us find balance, patience, and aids in decision making.

 

Sunstone brings personal empowerment and fights procrastination. It brings out our natural optimism, self-confidence, and promotes our natural flow of abundance as it soothes our fear of change and the accompanying stress that change can bring.

 

Tiger’s Eye (Gold) helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. 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.
