Thought For The Day: April 10, 2019 ” Banishing the Shadows”

Happy Wednesday,

We all have the power to create amazing personal change in our lives. The sad truth is that too often we spend our time and energy looking back. We focus on the bad things that have happened or old hurts and disappointments. However, if we face forward into the light, the sun, we can find a new beginning filled with hope and we can recognize the blessings that fill our lives.

MBG: This Is How To Use The Aries New Moon To Be Your Most Confident Self

The other night I was in a car with two of my best friends, on the way to a silent art walk in LA, and I said out loud, “I am nervous to go to this workshop because of how beautiful and successful I currently feel. What if people don’t like me because of that?” I had never said those words out loud, and it felt terrifying.

MNN: Time-lapse captures bizarre beauty of Norway’s floating islands

If you were to pass by them, Norway’s floating islands wouldn’t warrant a second look. By all appearances, with a surface covered in green and sprinkled with trees, they betray little of their true nature from afar. It’s only when you attempt to step on one or, as shown in the video above, view them over time, that you notice something odd.

EarthSky News: Leo loses his tail. We gain a constellation

Tonight’s chart shows the sky in April high to the south around mid-evening. To the upper left of the constellation Leo the Lion are dozens of very faint stars. They make up the constellation Coma Berenices, otherwise known as Berenice’s Hair. You need a dark sky to appreciate the constellation Coma Berenices. If you have one … it’s very beautiful

Inner Journey:

USE YOUR BREATH TO RELAX YOUR BODY

“Breath is the link between the inner and outer worlds.”
— Alice Christensen

We live in very demanding times, and our health depends on our being able to relieve our bodies and minds from constant stress. Breathing with awareness can focus and concentrate our attention inside. This slows down our pace and eases the pressure, anxiety, anticipation and excitement that are common stress reactions.

At any time, you can consciously experience your breathing to help you concentrate your mind and relax your body. Compare how you feel after your session with how you felt before. Write about your experience in your journal.

“Controlled deep breathing helps the body to transform the air we breathe into energy. The stream of energized air produced by properly executed and controlled deep breathing produces a current of inner energy which radiates throughout the entire body and can be channeled to the body areas that need it the most, on demand.”
— Nancy Zi

Everyone. Absolutely everyone.

They’re all scurrying around so. All planning and scheming and dreaming. Defending, proving, and justifying. Laughing, crying, and feeling. All behaving, more or less, as you expect them to…

Ah yea-a-ah, they do that a lot…

Originality

“True originality consists not in a new manner but in a new vision.”

-Edith Wharton, The Writing of Fiction, 1925

Each of us has eyes through which we see the world, and no two visions are exactly alike. But because we are conditioned to go along with the crowd, our vision gets blurred, and starts to look like everyone else’s. When we close our eyes, tap into our Source, and let Nature’s creativity and intelligence flow through us, we can restore our vision and our originality. We allow our inner artist to shine through!

Directing Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for March 27, 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.


Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. – Carl Jung 


327:  Spring is the season of new beginnings, new growth and change, all of which 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 then move forward making the necessary adjustments as you go. Allow yourself to move forward with confidence, set you intentions high and know that the the Universe is there to help you.


The combination of Archangel Michael and Ascended Master Saint Germain provides direction, courage and motivation as we travel along our path. Both also offer protection, Michael on all levels and Germain on the psychic. Between these two they definitely have you covered. The Hindu Goddess Kali oversees the ending of cycles and personal transformation. Kali’s energy is like a powerful storm that clears away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings, and the courage and motivation we need to see things through. She says, “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.”


Our Sacred Stones for today: Turquoise brings mental and spiritual clarity which is essential to staying on track with our path. Moonstone helps to combat repeated cycles and patterns that keep us from moving forward so that we can embrace change and new beginnings. Garnet brings courage and the awareness of change and how to go with the flow and Hessonite Garnet brings courage where new challenges arise.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Stand Tall: Cat’s Angel Message for March 21, 2019

Stand Tall: Cat’s Angel Message for March 21, 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.


Stand Tall, Stand Proud. Know that you are unique and magnificent. You do not need the approval of others. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


321:  The Ascended Masters are sending us a gentle reminder today about faith. 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 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 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!


Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey’s that we can heal our selves and our lives and regain  self confidence and faith. Ascended Masters like Jesus, Moses, El Morya can help with all areas of faith.  And, the Egyptian goddess Isis teaches us that through our own divine magick we find joy and increased self esteem. She says Always remember that you are a powerful creator in your own right. When you cloak yourself with dedication and determination you can move the heavens and the earth and create miracles.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Labradorite which helps 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. Sacred Stones that increase faith include Pyrolusite which promotes confidence and determination, Peridot helps to sharpen the mind and enhance self confidence. It can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Blessings of Spring: Cat’s Angel Message for March 20, 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.


Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” – Robin Williams 


320:  Today is Ostara, The Vernal Equinox and the first day of Spring! The Universe are reminding us about faith. Sometimes our faith is like the Winter season where things seem barren, empty or even hopeless. We see no results to our prayers or requests. Then all of a sudden we see new beginnings and new growth, just like what happens in the Spring time. Embrace this new season and see things with a fresh, new perspective. Believe with all your being that even though the results you want are not yet visible the Universe is working behind the scenes, wheels are turning and things are falling into place.


Today we honor the goddesses of Spring like Brigid (the maiden), Freya, Olwen, Blodewedd, Eostre, Persephone/Kore, or Cordielia. Spend some time outside today and look for the new growth that symbolizes rebirth and hope. The Welsh goddess Cordelia is a deity of nature and  Spring is her season.  She  reminds us that every season has it’s own unique beauty and healing energy. Embrace joy today to help you to escape stress and let go. “Healing can be found in nature. Allow the beauty that surrounds you to renew your spirit and fill your soul with pure joy.”


To honor this new season try using one of the following Sacred Stones and to promote Spring’s essence within.  Tree Agate (Dendritic) to strengthen your connection to the plant kingdom and help you to enjoy each moment. Green Aventurine promotes healing and infuses us with harmony as it balances yin/yang energy. Chrysoprase fills us with the sense of being a part of the divine plan and brings hope and personal insight. Moonstone helps us to see the new beginnings as they happen and Sunstone helps us to connect to the light and promotes a  joyous spirit.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
