The Metamorphoses of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for March 24, 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.


The more a man can forget, the greater the number of metamorphoses which his life can undergo, the more he can remember, the more divine his life becomes. – Soren Kierkegaard


324:  The more we work with the angels and the ascended masters the stronger our connection becomes. These divine helpers send us messages every day and it’s our job to be open to receiving them. Our own intuition works the same way, the more we listen to it the greater our faith and  self confidence becomes. Today we are being asked to be open to communication on all levels. Remember that these divine messages come in many forms (numbers, signs, items, verbal clues or even a strong intuitive pull).  If you’re not sure of a message ask for clarification. Never be afraid of the message or an answer, and even if it’s not what you wanted to hear at the current time. If you receive a message that doesn’t seem to fit with your current situation set it aside as it will be useful to you later on. Taking time to meditate can help as well. This promotes a stronger connection between you and the divine. This also helps us to pinpoint the things that truly matter to us as we navigate our path.


Archangel Jeremiel teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back let it go and continue forward. And 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. The humble Agate is  perfect  for grounding and balancing our energies. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to the most of our life experiences. And Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst”. This 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!

Spirit Library: If you ever feel like you don’t make a difference

Kindness is highly contagious. It’s more contagious, in fact, than the cold.

The contagiousness of kindness is powered by what’s known as ‘elevation’, a description coined by social psychologist, Jonathan Haidt. It’s a sense of warmth, satisfaction, expansion, even gratitude. It’s the feeling we feel when we do something kind, but also when we receive kindness or even witness it

Rosemary contains a number of active compounds that are responsible for the
pharmacological actions of the herb, including hesperidin (a powerful antioxidant), carnosol (antioxidant, anti-carcinogen and anti-inflammatory) and other phenolic diterpenoids with potent antimicrobial properties. Thyme, which contains another phenol called thymol, was once the standard antiseptic in first-aid kits carried on the battlefields of World War I. This spray is prepared in minutes and will be at-the-ready in your natural first aid kit when needed for minor scrapes, bug bites and rashes. Learn how to make this…

MNN: Meditation or vacation: Which one is better?

Research shows that meditation has a positive effect on your mental health, helping to improve mood and lower stress levels. But a 2016 study has found that the practice may also have quantifiable physical health benefits, too. In fact, when compared with the de-stressing health benefits of a relaxing vacation, meditation’s effects may be even stronger and longer-lasting

Inner Journey:

DISCOVER THE TREASURES INSIDE

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”
— Denis Waitley

Peace, joy, health and well-being can only be found inside us. They exist within us now, waiting to be discovered. Yet we tend to look to the outside world to satisfy our needs and longings.

Our outer life reflects back to us the way we think, feel and behave. The outer world is all effects. Go to the source inside for all of life’s treasures.

How are you searching for peace and contentment outside of yourself?

“The great Western disease is, ‘I’ll be happy when… When I get the money. When I get a BMW. When I get this job.’ Well, the reality is, you never get to when. The only way to find happiness is to understand that happiness is not out there. It’s in here. And happiness is not next week. It’s now.”
— Marshall Goldsm

Character

“The world may take your reputation from you, but it cannot take your character.”
-Emma Dunham Kelley, Megda, 1891

“A man’s character is the reality of himself. His reputation is the opinion others have formed of him. Character is in him; reputation is from other people – that is the substance, this is the shadow.”

-H.W. Beecher (1813-1887)

“If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of itself.”
-D.L. Moody (1837-1899)

I just had to include all three of these quotes together. These were taken from three different sources! I don’t know if these people knew each other, or were commenting on their statements – but it sure sounds like it. That’s the way spirit works sometimes – all these events happening in different times and places that somehow mesh together seamlessly. Notice the contrast that each draws between character and reputation. Where do we place the most value?

There are things we can work on, and things we really have no control over. When we work on ourselves, the rest seems to fall into place. It’s the “reap what you sow” factor taken to another level. It’s the “ripple effect” that we can’t always see because we’re right in the middle of it.

Everywhere I Go: Cat’s Angel Message for March 7, 2019

Everywhere I Go: Cat’s Angel Message for March 7, 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.


Everywhere I go, I still have time to meditate. People think meditating is sitting there, nobody bothering you, but you can even talk and still meditate. – Jet Li


37: Take some time today to engage in meditation. Like our quote for the day from Jet Li meditation doesn’t necessarily means sitting still. Go for a walk or simply gather impressions from what’s going on around you. Make note of details, feelings, thoughts and ideas that come to you, don’t force things to come to you just let them flow naturally. You can even ask questions or gain peaceful reassurance from the Divine Sources, the Angel or Ascended Masters. Meditation is also a form of self care, which is important to our overall well-being. It helps us to regain our balance and allows us to ground and center. The Ascended Masters are just reminding us today to embrace awareness of your world and yourself and feel the budding of new growth!


Archangel Jophiel reminds us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. She reminds us that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp.  The Ascended Master Babaji encourages us to follow our spiritual paths. He can show you the path to letting go of material things and how to simplify your life. You can connect with him through breathwork and yoga. And the Hindu goddess Green Tara 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 include the following. Seraphinite when used with meditation promotes spiritual enlightenment and self healing. Meditating with Danburite helps us access our inner guidance system and Satin Spar Selenite makes it a great meditation stone. It opens the crown chakra to help us receive universal guidance as it calms the emotions and promotes inner peace.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

CBD for Anxiety
BY KATHRYN DRURY WAGNER
Anxiety disorders, a group of mental-health issues, affects about 18 percent of the adult American population, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. The organization reports that these disorders, which can include general anxiety, panic disorder, society anxiety and others, are actually highly treatable, but that few people seek treatment. One of the promising new ways to treat anxiety is CBD, so let’s take a look.

Inner Journey:

WHY MEDITATE?

“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”
— Buddha

Meditation is considered an essential practice for those who seek self-knowledge and self-mastery. Why? Basically, meditation brings awareness of how our minds work. Over time, we become watchers, able to detach from the thoughts and emotions that play out in our minds.

With this detachment, we gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions. We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas.

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius

Moments

“I always say to myself, what is the most important thing we can think about at this extraordinary moment.”

-Francois de La Rochefoucauld
There are no ordinary moments – each moment is new and unique, so each moment is extraordinary. We can fill that moment with extraordinary thoughts, extraordinary deeds, extraordinary attention. We can choose to think of peace, to recognize beauty, to experience joy. This moment is ours, and we can choose what to do with it.

Tetraktys: Communing With Nature – A Guide For Modern Pagans

Modern paganism often comes with an appreciation of nature. Indeed, if you identify as being part of any Neopagan religion, there is a good chance that it’s one in which the core tenets have everything to do with nature and that you consider nature as divine in one way or another. If that’s the case, then communing with nature should be part of your spiritual practices, as you would be essentially communing with the divine itself in the process. This article will give you a few tips and a few of my thoughts about it

THE PAST IN THE PRESENT

“If you accept a limiting belief, then it will become a truth for you.”

Pick one aspect of your life, e.g. your health, your competence, your prosperity or relationships, and think back to when you were a child. What messages about this subject did you hear from adults at that time that are still playing on your subconscioustape recorder? Messages like: “Men can’t be trusted.” “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” “You’re not smart enough to succeed in business.”

How is your world reflecting your beliefs back to you, today?

“There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.”

Service

“In the time we have it is surely our duty to do all the good we can to all the people we can in all the ways we can.”

-William Barclay
I believe that it is our duty to serve. I also believe that it is our nature to serve. We are here for each other, we are here to help each other. Many times, I think it is easier for us to help someone else than to ask for help for ourselves. But when we need help, we absolutely should reach out for it. When we need help, we are providing another person with the opportunity to serve, and this is truly a blessing.

Metaphorically seeds have been used to describe abstract ideas and influences that grow in our minds and souls. The seeds of desire are planted to inspire love and lust while seeds of doubt cause us to question our own motives and self worth. Seeds as ideas and inspiration are planted by teachers and mentors cultivating them in their students to grow into their full potential.

Inner Journey: 

CALM THE MIND

“All man’s miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.”
— Blaise Pascal

Meditation calms our minds and makes it easier for us to pay attention to the reality around and within us. Meditation breaks through the masks that have built up as our identity. It helps us see through our defences and connect with unacknowledged and unloved aspects of ourselves. It opens us to higher mind and the voice of intuition.

We can consciously choose meditation as a way to become more aware of who we truly are. If we don’t take the initiative to open to our authentic selves, we can be certain that deep challenge and pain from life experience will push us to awaken.

“Meditation helps me feel the shape, the texture of my inner life. Here, in the quiet, I can begin to taste what Buddhists would call my true nature, what Jews call the still, small voice, what Christians call the holy spirit.”
— Wayne Muller

“In a world filled with noise, we need to quiet ourselves to hear God’s voice.”
— Paul Borthwick

Self-Knowledge

“It is not only the most difficult thing to know oneself, but the most inconvenient, too.”

-Josh Billings

I guess from one point of view, life would be easier if we just had to get up and go to work everyday – we could pretty much be on auto-pilot and navigate through life without much effort. But what a waste of time and energy that would be. And how boring, too! Sure, spiritual growth takes effort – we need to make time to meditate, read, serve and take care of ourselves and the planet. But isn’t that the best part about this life? Once you get started on “the path” and see all the wonders that a spiritual life offers, you want to keep going. Sure, self-knowledge is difficult, messy, challenging, and inconvenient – but it is also the most magnificent and amazing gift that life has to offer.

Coloring Meditation: Cat’s Angel Message for August 30, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


 Being wakeful in each and every moment of your life is meditation. The simplest definition of meditation is: when seeing, just see; when hearing, just hear. – Josh Baran


830:  Today is a good time for a little meditation and the Universe is asking  you to  hold a little light and simply be at ease. Enjoy nature sounds or soothing music and fill your mind with your favorite energizing, soothing or healing color. These are different for everyone, mine are watery blue-green or sunny yellow-orange, so whatever color speaks to you today just enjoy it!  Personal quiet time plays an essential role in you emotional and spiritual well being. Too often we forget or put off doing something just for ourselves so a bubble bath for the soul is always a good thing to indulge in!


Archangel Raphael promotes and supports healing on all levels. He helps to open our spiritual eyes which is essential when we meditate or during quiet time. The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps us heal through color, so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant. And  the Roman Goddess Venus teaches us to truly appreciate ourselves. She says “You must put loving self care first. By doing so you become confidently empowered and fully connected to your own divine nature.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Rose Quartz today to bring inner peace and harmony. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. and Satin Spar Selenite makes it a great meditation stone. It opens the crown chakra to help us receive universal guidance as it calms the emotions and promotes inner peace.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
