Spiritual Unite: Itchy Left Foot Meaning – Are You Restless?

If you have an itchy left foot, the meaning of it could be more than just a bit of eczema, at least according to cultural beliefs and superstitions.

ThoughtCo: Brighid, the Hearth Goddess of Ireland

In Irish mythological cycles, Brighid (or Brighit), whose name is derived from the Celtic brig or “exalted one”, is the daughter of the Dagda, and therefore one of the Tuatha de Dannan. Her two sisters were also called Brighid, and were associated with healing and crafts. The three Brighids were typically treated as three aspects of a single deity, making her a classic Celtic triple goddess.

Daily Good: Giving Directions

Like most of us, you’ve probably been asked for directions at least once in your life. While men are notorious for failing to admit when they’re lost and women less so, little research has been done on how directions are imparted and the characterization of the individual giving them. “Giving directions is a form of storytelling,” says Akiko Busch. “When people advise you to take the longest, most complicated route, it is their way of prolonging the pleasure of the journey.” In this Travel and Leisure article, Busch elaborates on how this simple act is often far more intimate than we realize, relying not only on our memory, but on our internal map of the places we hold most dear. { read more }

Be The Change

The next time you ask for directions, pay attention to the route you’re given. What does it tell you about the giver?

Elephant Journal: The Undeniable Significance of Fall.

For most of my life, I have identified as a summer child.
Warm summer days, cloudless and perfect, were what I craved.

Of course, I still appreciate this. There is an air of ease and simple joy that arises during this time. School is out. Plants and animals come out to play. All around, life moves at a sweet, untethered pace like a melting popsicle, which can be either fast or slow, or both.

MNN: This plant may have made Vikings go berserk before battle

More than a thousand years ago, Viking armies knew a thing or two about instilling dread in those who would stand in their way.

Many of their victims lived in monasteries in the British Isles, a favorite source of slaves and plunder for raiding parties.

EarthSky News: Meet Fomalhaut, the loneliest star

Tonight, look for the loneliest star. Which one is that? Many people would say the answer is Fomalhaut, a bright star in the constellation Piscis Austrinus the Southern Fish. Fomalhaut is a bright star – visible from all but far-northern latitudes – located in a region of the sky that contains only very faint stars. So it appears solitary in the night sky

Patheos-Pagan: The Witch Reborn in Autumn: Spiritual Death and the Dance of Bones

Do you hear their call? The night wandering spirits of the Witch Mother’s horde beckon me this time of year, as does she, calling me to dance with them. The spirits of the land join with the fallen leaves, celebrating the season of letting go. As the leaves release the tree, so do I cast off what binds. Finding freedom in shedding a form that no longer serves us. The Dance of Bones, where all is reduced to the soul and the entrapments of the material world removed is nigh.

Inner Journey:

WHY? WHY? WHY?

“As long as one keeps searching, the answers come.”
— Joan Baez

Asking ourselves ‘why?’ helps us delve deeply into our main motives — why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, ‘Why am I…?’ Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else….”
— Archibald Alexander

A Note from the Universe

The Learning Game:

When there is ease and simplicity in your life, it’s because earlier you learned a lot.

When there is resistance and obstacles in your life, it’s because there’s even more to learn.

And learning even more, is pretty much the main reason you’re there.

Classy dismissed,

The Universe

Conscience

“Let me consider this as a resolution by which I pledge myself to act in all variety of circumstances and to which I must recur often in times of carelessness and temptation – to measure my conduct by the rule of conscience.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Just as conscience is a compass, it is also a measurement devise, according to Emerson. We really know how well we are doing, we don’t need anyone’s judgment or opinion of our behavior – we have our own conscience to mark our progress. There is nothing as freeing as a clear conscience.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Justice

You may be dealing with people who feel inferior or weaker than you, so take care to not run over anyone. Equally, they do not have to serve as an excuse for you to go slower or do less than you know is necessary. Be firm but not too firm, determined but not too determined. Get a lot of good work done.

Getting Lost Is Getting Found: Cat’s Angel Message for January 27, 2018

Getting Lost Is Getting Found: Cat’s Angel Message for January 27, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

The more you let yourself be distracted from where you are going, the more you are the person that you are. It’s not so much like getting lost as it is like getting found.

William Stafford

127: Everyone’s  “Life Path” is unique and once we set our course we tend to follow where it leads us. Often we’re alone, sometimes taking side paths as we grow and change and sometime merging with the paths of others. There are even time when we leave our path altogether and wander. The wandering can be a good thing as we forge ahead and create a new path, although sometimes we get a little lost and have trouble finding our way back. Today our spiritual helpers are reminding us that if we are feeling lost for feel that we have lost our path and are wandering without direction that we simply need to ask for help. Call upon your goddess, the angels or the Universe and allow them to guide you back onto the path. Remember that our path do change. These changes help us to grow so believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to strike off in a new direction or side path if it calls to your heart. Take time today to acknowledge your personal growth and plant or tend to your thought seeds. Above all, give yourself a BIG hug. You are doing fine and any assistance you need  is only a request away!

Archangels Chamuel and Michael are here to help today. Chamuel helps us to recover what is lost. If you feel like you have lost your way he can help and Michael provides guidance and direction as he restores our belief in ourselves. The Celtic goddess Brigid is the female equivalent of Archangel Michael. She also offers guidance and direction as she helps you back onto your path or helps you find a new, more fulfilling one. Our sacred Stones for the day are:

Amethyst can be used for both Brigid and Archangel Michael. This is a protective crystal that helps us to cope with both change and new beginnings.

Carnelian is also associated with the goddess Brigid. Brigid helps to stoke the fires of inspiration and creative thought. Both of which are necessary as we navigate out path.

Snowflake Obsidian reduces feelings of fear and helps us with focus and clarity.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Looking Within: Cat’s Angel Message for January 25, 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

Your visions will become clear only
when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes.
– Carl Jung

125: Changes are an ongoing part of life, some we initiate for ourselves while others hit us out of the blue.  Our focus today is on changes that we initiate.  When we make requests of the angels and the Universe it’s remember to keep your intentions clear. Be specific as this helps the Universe direct the right opportunity your way and provides a powerful focus point for you as well. Today, the angels are telling you that your prayers have been heard. Their message is ” Change = Growth” and the things that are happening for you now will be good for you and those around you. Turn your fear and worry over to us to deal with so that your focus remains uninterrupted.” Keep in mind that the answers and opportunities you seek can come from both expected and unexpected sources so don’t cut yourself short by looking in only one direction!

Keep working with Archangel Michael today.  He gives us courage and direction during times of change as well as offering protection. The Greek sun god Apollo assists us by easing stress during times of change and shows us the path  to creating a happy ending that benefits our situation, wear the colors of gold and yellow today to connect with his sunny energy, and the Ascended Master Buddha helps us find balance and maintain it so that we can find our peaceful center.

Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Citrine to help balance our energy and which takes negative energy and cleanses it , turning it into something more positive.

Golden Calcite promotes an optimistic mindset as it clears away self limiting beliefs,

Tiger’s Eye helps to express our intentions clearly by showing us the difference between wishful thinking and what we really NEED.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Just Let It Happen: Cat’s Angel Message for December 4, 2017 

Cat's Angel 1 sm

Just Let It Happen: Cat’s Angel Message for December 4, 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

Taking action will aid in manifestation. Well-being is making its way to you at all times. If you will relax and find a way to allow it, it will be your experience.

– Abraham (Esther Hicks)

 

124: Yesterday we began the making room process. Remember, the key is to clear away what is no longer needed to make room for new things. (ventures, projects, relationships, opportunities etc.) Keep this month’s theme in mind and pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas as they will show you the way to success and the areas that need your immediate attention. Have faith in yourself and listen to your inner guidance as well, you know what’s best for you and only you can set those wheels in motion.  Today the Universe is sending us a gentle reminder. If we need new ideas, a boost of courage or help finding our way, we just need to ask!

Archangel Michael helps us to find courage and points us in the right direction, while keeping us safe and protected. The Egyptian god Horus teaches us the value of standing our ground when we start clearing the way for new things. he also blesses us with clear insight so that the decisions we make are the best possible ones and the Ascended Master Solomon shows us how to be more efficient so that we make the most of our time. Our Sacred Stones for today are Angelite and Moldavite which will assist with direct communication with Angels and Ascended Master’s and Aquamarine which  promotes courage and quiets the mind to allow guidance to come to us.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Sailing Out To Sea: Cat’s Angel Message for December 1, 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.  Taking action will aid in manifestation.

A ship in port is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for. Sail out to sea and do new things.

Grace Hopper

121:  Are you ready to create some good things this month? Well then welcome to December! Our mission this month focuses on creating opportunities. The goal is to improve upon and create the life that you want for yourselves and loved ones.  Do your best to stay focused on what you want to accomplish and not on your fears. Release worries and concerns to your angels to keep your energy flowing. The work we do this month will set the tone for the new year. Allow intuition to be your guide and grab the blessings that come your way to help set things in motion.

Remember that sometimes people get “freaky” when they see you moving off in a new direction to smooth the way you can call on Archangel Raguel to help resolve conflicts and disharmony with those around you. He also aids in the letting go process which is essential to moving forward. Egyptian goddess Maat help to promote clarity in confusing situations, while helping us to see the truth and providing protection against manipulation and the Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us to persevere in our personal quests and provides us with courage and direction. He can also help us to comfortably interact with the people who can help us achieve our goals. Our Sacred Stones for today are:  Lapis Lazuli to receive Maat’s wisdom while bringing forward your natural gifts and skills, and Ametrine which helps to release  blocks like negative emotional programing, as well as  promoting personal growth on all levels while encouraging us to explore all possibilities and finding creative solutions.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
