Spiritual Unite: Blue Chakra Meaning And Its Significance

Blue auric energy represents the fifth primary energy centre of the subtle body  the Throat chakra. The Throat chakra is responsible for communication, self-expression and truth. Spotting a lot of blue in your aura usually means that you have a strong Throat chakra, though muddy blues can indicate a blockage and a completely blue aura could mean an overactive

MBG: The Biggest Mistake We Make When Trying To Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness can sometimes feel like a miracle cure, a panacea that can tackle both mental and physical ailments alike. A mindful outlook or practice can lower stress, ease negative emotions, lessen physical pain, and make sex more pleasurable. Indeed, the upsides to mindfulness seem endless.

Daily Good: The Restorative Power of Trees

More than half of the world’s population lives in an urban setting. People in cities run a 20 and 40 percent higher risk of both anxiety and mood disorders than people in rural areas. And we’re spending more and more time away from nature. Researchers estimate that if every city dweller spent just 30 minutes per week in nature, depression cases could be reduced by 7 percent. Globally, that’s a whopping 21 million people. The answer lies in incorporating green space into urban planning, weaving nature into the fabric of everyday city life

When it comes to winter snow or spring rains. people often turn to farmers for predictions. Both the Old Farmer’s Almanac and the Farmers’ Almanac have been predicting weather for at least 200 years. The almanacs use somewhat different methods of weather prognostication and have divided the climate regions of the country in different ways, and they each have their followings.

Patheos-Pagan: A Deep Dive into Animism

The very term animism was used by early anthropologists to conjure a more “primitive” world before the eyes of their readers. But there is another part to the conversation.

To be an animist means to understand that the worlds of both the spirit and the physical exist. The two can be experienced, side-by-side. This attitude is not a matter of religion, or belief. It becomes, in time, a matter of phenomenology, and eventually simple practicality.

Inner Journey: 

HEAL DUALITIES

“Beware of the fury of the patient man.”
— John Dryden

Our minds perceive and give relative value – positive and negative – to the different sides of a duality. We usually shun the negative.

It’s important to know that you cannot eliminate the negative by focusing exclusively on the positive. Energetically, both opposites must remain in balance. Increase one and its opposite will also increase. Try to be only positive and the negative within you will raise its ugly head.

We work with dualities by remembering that each is part of the whole. We must acknowledge and accept all aspects of life, because they all exist within us. And so, if we seek to be honest, we do so by acknowledging our potential to be dishonest. We can also bring in love and compassion when we catch ourselves acting out the negative.

Power arises out of integrating the positive and negatives within us. From the tension that exists between the two, we develop awareness and become more conscious and compassionate.

“Any fool can run towards the light. It takes a master with courage to turn and face the darkness and shine his own light there.”
— Leslie Fieger – author of the Delfin Knowledge System

A Note from the Universe

It’s like you’re a fabulously complicated jigsaw puzzle piece,  with stunning colors, wildly serrated edges, oceans of emotion, mountains of possibilities, worlds of talent, and complex energies, but for as long as you see yourself as just human, you’ll never quite know where you fit in.

Just say “No” –

Today’s Recipe: Anzac Biscuits

This is a biscuit that was named after the Anzacs and is very popular in Australia. A crispy, nutty taste though no nuts. I presume the taste comes from the oats and golden syrup. It’s worth a try.

Prayer

“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.”

-Kahlil Gibran

There is no “right way” to pray. There is no “right time” to pray. Prayer is an ongoing dialogue, a soul connection with spirit, a fusion of physics and metaphysics. Prayer is our expression of gratitude, despair, longing, appreciation. It is one means of communication and communion with All That Is. Sometimes we’re praying and we don’t even realize it. Our actions reflect our thoughts; our thoughts are prayers. What are we thinking? What are we doing about it?

-Lissa Coffey

Directing Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for January 17, 2018

Directing Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for January 17, 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.

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

117: Today we have entered the New Moon phase which begins a new cycle so it’s a great time to ditch what didn’t work for you last month and make  some new plans. Along these lines the Universe is encouraging us to stick to our path. All the work we’ve done, the changes we have made and are making are starting to pay off. Make a conscious decision to move forward and  stay focused on the things you want to accomplish. The key is to let go of your worries and fears as you continue to push onward. Our angels understand that we sometimes get discouraged when results don’t happen right away. So they are reminding us to have faith in ourselves and in the loving energy of the Divine. The wheels are turning behind the scenes and things are falling into place.

The Ascended Master Babaji helps us to create a strong, clear line to the angels and the Divine Source. Archangel Raziel gently guides us through the manifestation process so that we are more adept at creating what need and want and the Greek goddess Artemis helps us to pursue our goals with focus. She is a Lady of the New Moon  and can help us set new goals to replace the ones that aren’t paying off , fell by the wayside or just didn’t work out. Ask her for guidance and to aid your intuitive skills. Our Sacred Stone for today is Tourmalinated Quartz. This stone which combines the properties of both Quartz and Tourmaline is an excellent grounding stone and helps to transform negative energy and thoughts into positive ones.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

New Dimensions: Cat’s Angel Message for August 18, 2017 

August Theme: Prosperity- Abundance- Creative Problem Solving 

A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to it’s old  dimensions. ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

818: As we head toward the new moon and solar eclipse (both of which happen on Monday) there will be a interesting shift of energy. This powerful combination ca help push us toward long term success in our quest for prosperity and abundance. Our positive and creative mind set is generating new opportunities that will be enhanced by the working of the universe. Do not allow yourself to backslide into outdated or negative patterns if you want to keep the doors open and the roadways clear. The angels want you to know that you and your loved one are safe and cared for during these important cycles.

Archangel Haniel helps us by showing us how to harness the energies of the moon, she also helps us learn to embrace both our spiritual gifts and the joy within. If you are finding yourself at a crossroad and wondering what to do next Hecate (Lady of the waning and dark moon) can offer guidance to point you in the right direction. Our  sacred stone for today is Aquamarine. This stone can balance the emotions that can become frayed during new cycles, it helps us move forward.

Blessings for a magickal day!

Thought for the Day: July 21, 2017 “Just Let It Go”

Well we have finally made it to Friday and the weekend. It’s time to let go of the upsets and annoyances, ground, center and clear. With the new moon coming up on Sunday (5:46 am EST) it’s the perfect time for a little self care before the new cycle starts. Do what you need to do to get yourself back into balance and harmony. Remember… you are a wonderful, amazing being who is worthy of all the blessings the universe has to offer!

Thought for the Day: June 24, 2017

Happy Friday and TGIF!

Tonight is also the new moon (10:31 pm EST), which will be in Cancer. This new moon will invite our inner toddler out to play. On the upside this means we can see with childlike wonder, however Cancer is an emotional sign so be aware that your emotions may be a “bit volatile”. (Remember, inner toddler)  So keep in mind that you could be showing people the “unfiltered” you. Our thought for the day is Advice from the Moon….

Thought for the Day: May 25, 2017 (New Moon)

Happy Thursday and New Moon Blessings!

I don’t know about you but the this last New Moon cycle has been a bit odd. Normally this moon phase is a time for new beginnings, careers, relationships and drawing new prosperity and abundance. Not this time, maybe it was the retrograde planets or it could just be me…………….. who knows…….. Anyway, today we start a new cycle with a clean slate. It’s also the time to fill out those New Moon Abundance Checks to help start the new cycle off with positive intent. Below is the information for today’s New Moon.

New Moon occurs at 3:44 p.m. EST, this cycle starts the day of the New Moon and will last for the next 3 1/2 days.

This month’s New Moon is in Gemini. Gemini is ruled by Mercury which means that is a good time for spells and workings that involve communication.  If you are wanting to learn something new this is a good time, and promotes courage for people who tend to be shy. Keep in mind Mercury tends to move quickly and Gemini can cause things to get a bit “wonky’ so make sure your intentions are clear and concise.

I’m SO ready for this new cycle ….. how about you?
