Thought For The Day: Sept. 12, 2019 ” Fresh Perspective”

Happy

Today’s quote can sound a little scary. What it tells us is that in order for things to work out we must often examine how we see and think about things. Like everything else, our thoughts can become outdated and outgrown. So in order to grow, we must be willing to adopt new ways of doing, seeing, being and thinking. An open mind and a fresh perspective can help us to create the life we want.

A New Day: Cat’s Angel Message for September 10, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. – Eleanor Roosevelt


910: In many of my daily messages I talk about keeping our thoughts elevated to a positive level, and today is one of those days. Sometimes this can be difficult. Especially when something negative happens and our thoughts and mood take a nosedive into the basement. The key is to do your best to let it go and allow yourself to move on. Today we are receiving assistance from Spirit (Divine, Goddess, God, etc) in keeping our thoughts elevated particularly in areas that pertain to “Why am I here?”. Allow yourself to absorb new ideas that come out of the blue. These will provide needed and valuable insights that will help us along our path. Remember, information comes in many forms and that positive energy helps us to draw what we need to us like a magnet!


Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process. In turn, this shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes blessings easier to receive. The Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter, this gives us a clear perspective and keeps our energy flowing. He tells us that laughter is sacred and when the heart is alive with joy we are connected to the Infinite and filled with Nirvana-essence. Center your mind with the intent of enjoying yourself and you will find yourself centered in the moment. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process! The Celtic goddess Brigid helps all who call to her by providing the direction and courage needed to prosper and grow. She says: “Gather the seeds that you have collected and choose the ones that represent your path. Tell me of your dreams and desires as you plant your seeds within your heart and mind and allow fire and light to fill you. “Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way as you nurture the seeds in your care”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Smoky Quartz helps to neutralize negative energy as it helps us to work through the fear of failure which can show up during times of change. It also promotes clear insight and focus which helps us to leave behind the things that no longer serve us and make room for the blessings headed your way.

Rhodonite helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. Its calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations. It also helps to promote the feeling of brotherhood. It also helps to clear and activate the heart chakra which is essential to embracing gratitude while promoting a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity.

Rose Quartz today to bring inner peace and harmony. 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. It works with the heart chakra to gently wash away negative feelings that we harbor against ourselves and lifts the emotions to promote joy and peace. It opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

ThoughtCo: Mabon History: The Second Harvest 

Two days a year, the Northern and Southern hemispheres receive the same amount of sunlight. Not only that, each receives the same amount of light as they do dark—this is because the earth is tilted at a right angle to the sun, and the sun is directly over the equator. In Latin, the word equinox translates to “equal night.”

Daily Good: Bronnie Ware: Living Without Regrets

“Bronnie Ware is an author and speaker whose bestselling book, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, is based on her time as a palliative care worker. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Bronnie outlines these five major life regrets with Tami Simon and discusses the experiences in end-of-life care that inspired them. Bronnie explains how most regrets arise from a lack of courage and why people are willing to share so openly during their last days. Tami and Bronnie speak on the healing power of sharing our most vulnerable selves, even if it’s in a letter that we never send. Finally, they talk about maintaining trust in the flow of life and why happiness is ultimately a choice.”

EarthSky News: Perseids about to peak!

When is the peak of the Perseid meteor shower in 2019? The most meteors are most likely to fall in the predawn hours on August 13, yet under the light of a bright waxing gibbous moon. The mornings of August 11 and 12 are surely worth trying, too, especially as there will be more moon-free viewing time on these mornings

Inner Journey:

WHAT ARE YOU LACKING?

“Money cannot fill an empty soul.”
— Julia Cameron & Mark Bryan

Where in your life are you experiencing lack?

Are you experiencing a lack of self esteem? Of humour? Of energy? Of love? Of money and abundance? Whatever you believe you are missing, it is there to be claimed.

The first step starts with shifting your perspective. See the glass as half full rather than half empty. Focus on accepting and appreciating what you DO have, and more will be attracted to you.

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

Ideas

“Every new idea has something of the pain and peril of childbirth about it.”

-Samuel Butler (1835-1902)

It seems like ideas are a dime a dozen, there are so many of them out there. But the real value comes from the execution of those ideas! Ah! How many times have we seen some invention or some new contraption and said: “I thought of that!” Yes, and someone else did, too- and the difference is that someone took that idea and ran with it, and made it a reality. It’s easy and fun to sit around and brainstorm. The “pain and peril” comes from the work that is involved in developing the idea into something that is viable, something that is tangible.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.

Different Levels: Cat’s Angel Message for August 12, 2019

Different Levels: Cat’s Angel Message for August 12, 2019

August Theme: Positive focus and creative solutions help to draw both prosperity and abundance this month.  You are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them. – Albert Einstein


812: Today we continue on the theme of creative problem solving. We are all capable of creating new things and thinking outside the box. However, some seem to have difficulty in activating and using their problem solving skills. This could be because they’re afraid to let themselves go, making mistakes or of what others may think. Be courageous and give yourself permission to use the abilities that you have. This requires trust and faith and by allowing our creative mind to blossom it invites new ideas to take root and multiply.  While it’s true that these ideas may generate artistic endeavors it can also generate a completely different approach to solving issues that we are working on. This in turn gives us more options and flexibility so that we have more to work with. The angels are reminding us to stay positive, focused and open to trying out new ideas!


Archangel Uriel teaches us how to access our creative database. he reminds us that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to use a non-conventional approach. He gives us the essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations. The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and stop fighting the things that we have no control over, which blocks our problem solving and creative flow. And the Hawaiian Goddess Pele tells us that “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you burn away old and outdated ways of doing things!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Amethyst helps us to make decisions by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making.
  • Carnelian is used for motivation and increased creativity. It teaches us to trust in ourselves and helps us find creative solutions to current issues as it boosts self-esteem and invites us to embrace our personal power while promoting positive life choices which enhance our ability to draw new forms of prosperity and abundance.
  • Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self-defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

When I Wake Up: Cat’s Angel Message for March 2, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

When I Wake Up: Cat’s Angel Message for March 2, 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.


I’m always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning… Every day I find something creative to do with my life. – Miles Davis


32:  The energy of the Ascended Masters surrounds us this month. Since many of them walked the earth in human form they have a better understanding of the things we face. They know that it is mankind’s enthusiasm and creative energy that produces amazing things. The month of March is also a time of fertility and new growth and these things are produced through our creative side. When allow ourselves the freedom to access our creative mind and energy we find that we are able to open the doors to change and adapt to the gifts it brings. We also find that it helps us to share more of ourselves with others. Embrace new ideas, creative solutions and even those valuable AH-HA moments. Creativity inspires everything that it touches, and creates hope from darkness.


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 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 Egyptian goddess Isis tells us “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 Moonstone, the stone of new beginnings. This beautiful, watery stone helps to navigate the cycles of change and calms our emotions as it gently promotes creative thinking and creative problem solving.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Large or Small: Cat’s Angel Message for December 9, 2018

Large or Small: Cat’s Angel Message for December 9, 2018 

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.


It’s the little things you do that can make a big difference. What are you attempting to accomplish? What little thing can you do today that will make you more effective? You are probably only one step away from greatness. – Bob Proctor


129:  Today’s number revolves around our “life mission” ( an area where you feel compelled to serve). While some people do big things in a big way most of us do small things in small ways. No matter which category you fall into both make a difference to the people around us. It’s really not how much you do but what you do that matters. Simply by helping just one person you are making a difference, it creates a chain reaction as people pass it on. Life missions vary just like paths do so never let someone else tell you your mission (or path is wrong). You know what you need to do, if it feels right go for it! If you need Divine clarification ask for it and be open to receiving an answer.


Archangel Michael helps us in all areas of our Life Purpose/Mission by providing direction, motivation and guidance. The Ascended Master Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha, helps us to find and share laughter and joy with those around us. And  the Celtic goddess Brigid teaches us how to express ourselves in a positive manner and how to bring our ideas to the world and give them life.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Angelite and Celestite which help us with angelic communication. You can also use a Life Path crystal (a long, thin, clear quartz crystal with one or more smooth sides) to access your Path.Mission, it teaches us to follow our soul not our ego.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Clearing The Way: Cat’s Angel Message for December 4, 2018 

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.


Before moving on, you have to clear away your cherished beliefs. – Dick Raymond


124:  Yesterday we began the process of making room. Remember, the key is to clear away what you no longer need in order to make room for new growth and blessings. (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. It will also clarify 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.
