Thought For The Day: Sept. 29, 2020 ” It’s A Gift”

Happy Tuesday,

If someone grants you forgiveness don’t squander it. Use this gift to make amends, make it right and do things differently. If you grant forgiveness to yourself (and you should always do that) use it as a new beginning. Make changes and do things differently. Remember that you are worthy of good things and that you can do good things for others. Just do your best and give your all.

Inner Journey: DID YOU FIND JOY?

“The future, higher evolution will belong to those who live in joy, who share joy, and who spread joy.”
— Torkom Saraydarian

Joy, as the energy of love, is the highest vibration on this planet. Everything in the universe is energy; it can be measured and reduced to vibrational frequencies. It’s a universal law that as we think and feel we vibrate, and as we vibrate we attract.When we are in the high joy vibration, we attract what is for our greater good.

The Ancient Egyptians saw Joy as a sacred responsibility. They believed that upon their death, the God Osiris would ask them two questions: “Did you bring Joy?” and “Did you find Joy?” Those who answered ‘yes’ could continue their journey into the afterlife.

For at least the next week or two, ask yourself these two questions each and every day:
•Did I bring joy?
•Did I find joy?

“Man loves because he is Love. He seeks Joy, for he is Joy. He thirsts for God for he is composed of God and he cannot exist without Him.”
— Sathya Sai Baba

Gentleness
“Tenderness is greater proof of love than the most passionate of vows.”

-Marlene Dietrich, 1962


What we do carries more weight than what we say. If we mean what we say, how do we show it? When we’re talking about love – it means being gentle, and tender, and loyal and available. Think of how we respond to a sleeping baby – we cuddle and whisper and walk softly. It’s in our nature to show love by being gentle.

-Lissa Coffey

It’s Our Job: Cat’s Angel Message for March 27, 2020

March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.


The world is perfect. It’s a mess. It has always been a mess. We are not going to change it. Our job is to straighten out our own lives. – Joseph Campbell


327: Spring is the season of new beginnings, new growth, and change, all of which is are integral parts of our path. So how do you know if you are on the right path and headed in the right direction? First of all, remember that everyone’s path is unique and you are truly the only one who knows what’s best for you. Walking your path involves courage, trust in Spirit, ourselves and our own inner magick. We are being reminded that our intuition is a valuable gift. We are all able to discern right from wrong, what feels right and what doesn’t and what brings us joy. Now add to that your intuitive gifts and you’ll find your path and new paths opening up before you. If you are unsure of your next “step” take some time to think about or meditate on where you want to be and then move forward making the necessary adjustments as you go. Allow yourself to move forward with confidence, set your intentions high and know that the Universe is there to help you.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Feeling The Light: Cat’s Angel Message for March 21, 2020

March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.


Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark. – Rabindranath Tagore


321: We are taking a look at faith today. Faith is important right now and we will need to embrace it during these unsettling times. While it’s important to have faith in the Divine Source it’s just as important to have faith in yourself. This can also be seen as an extension of yesterday’s theme of hope and new beginnings. By having faith in ourselves we are effectively acknowledging our readiness to embrace new beginnings and the hope we have for better things to come. We can also gain valuable insight on a personal level as we gain a better understanding of our strengths and weaknesses. The key is to maintain a balance of faith between yourself and the Divine. Remember that you are a powerful creator and that the Universe is on your side!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

The Ascended Master El Morya supports all who give of themselves in service of others and he shows us how to stay committed to our own growth so that we can heal and teach those in need. 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 Hindu Goddess White Tara embodies the beauty of Divine love and shows us the path to strengthening or restoring our faith. She says: “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Labradorite, called “The Bringer of Light” It is both protective and mystical. Turn the stone in your hands and see the flashes of color and light. They create a connection and helps to raise the consciousness to the energies of the Universe. Labradorite is also used 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.

 Pyrolusite helps to increase our faith by promoting confidence and determination.

Rose Quartz brings us inner peace and harmony which is essential to increasing our faith. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. It helps to promote the softer, move loving view that we need to embrace gratitude, it soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion.
