Inner Journey: THE GIFT OF JOY

“Joy is prayer – Joy is strength – Joy is love – Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.”
— Mother Teresa

Some people unconsciously believe it’s not okay to feel more joyful than the people around them. Out of a mistaken sense of caring, they squelch their joy and tune in to the sadness of the one they are with.

In truth, joy is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people around us. Those who are unhappy need our joy, not our sadness.

“Never miss a joy in this world of trouble … that’s my theory! … Happiness, like mercy, is twice blest: it blesses those most intimately associated with it and it blesses all those who see it, hear it, touch it or breathe the same atmosphere.”
— Kate Douglas Wiggin

Self
“We never remark any passion or principle in others, of which, in some degree or other, we may not find a parallel in ourselves.”

-David Hume (1711-1776)


The more we get to know our self, the more we understand that we are so much the same as everyone else. Sometimes it’s like we’re all living the same life. We have so much in common. There are times when we recognize each other as brothers and sisters, and there are other times when we just say: “That’s me!” And that’s the truth. We’re all connected.

A Note from the Universe

So I was thinking… I know you know that there’s the “you” that you know you are — adventurous, good-looking, and fun to be around.

And I know you know that there’s another part of “you” in the unseen who you’ve kind of temporarily forgotten — who completes you, loves you, and knows what’s really going on.

Well, how’d you like it if I removed the veils? Just for a second? Gave you a glimpse of who that special, divine, otherworldly essence is, so that you might at last begin to comprehend how extraordinary, sublime, and divine you really are?

Okay?

It’s me!

Yours truly,
The entire, flippin’ Universe

Self-Awareness
“Nature never repeats herself, and the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another.”

-Elizabeth Cady Stanton


Our individuality is our strength. We don’t need to imitate. We don’t need to be anything other than who we are. We are blessed with unique gifts that can’t be duplicated. The more we get to know ourselves, the more we become self-aware, the more that we will find opportunities to use these gifts to make the world a better place.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Fool

You may have the best of intentions today but it won’t be easy to stick to any of them. There’s a lot of randomness in the air and you won’t have very much control over anything. Don’t let this lull you into becoming thoughtless or not caring about what you’re doing. Do what you can and save some energy for tomorrow when things might be smoother.

Messages From The Stars: Cat’s Angel Message for October 1, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


We have the capacity to receive messages from the stars and the songs of the night winds. – Ruth St. Denis


101:  As we start the new month take some time to clear and center yourself as we will be focusing on the receiving of divine inspiration and information. Divine guidance comes from many sources,( ie Goddess, Sacred Feminine,God, Angels or Ascended Masters.)  The Divine Source is not only powerful but creative as well so be ready for new and inspiring thoughts and ideas to help you along your path. Remember, don’t try and force things to happen because the best creative things happen naturally. Hold peaceful thoughts for yourself and others and allow creative solutions and ideas to help you today!


As you clear and center connect to your image of the Divine Source. Extend gratitude for what you have and the good things coming your way. Ask for what you need today. (peace, healing, energy, protection, etc.) Commit yourself to being open to receive and allow yourself to see the world with fresh eyes.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Azurite-Malachite. This combination of deep blue and green works with the Third Eye and Heart Chakras, which are essential to receiving divine guidance. It also promotes our individuality and the ability to be flexible in our thinking.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
