Today’s Message: Our Personal Journey

93: The Universe is encouraging us to open doors by trying something new today. Maybe a new project, or trying something you’ve never done before. Trying new things will draw new blessings (abundance, relationships, opportunities) into our lives and can even help us in our quests for personal evolution and self exploration. Remember to continue making room for new things by throwing out outdated thoughts, feelings, habits or things that no longer bring you joy ( remember that holding on to things out of habit holds us back). This makes some much needed room for the new blessings headed our way and gives them the room to grow and flourish. These things will help us in our quest to see the big picture and help us to embrace our personal and spiritual journey!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel can assist us in both embracing our unique divine magic and in the overall manifestation process. He tells us that growth and freedom can be found when we let go of what we have outgrown as well as our limiting self beliefs and fears all of which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want.

The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

Epona is the Celtic goddess of horses, fertility (cornucopia) and dreams(keys). She has ridden into our message today to remind us of the importance of sowing fertile ground to nurture our body, mind and spirit. The keys to this can often be found in our dreams. She says ” As you ride into your evolution remember that you are the key to unlocking the doors that will lead you on your journey. Clues can be found in your dreams and daydreams so don’t gallop past the way markers.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Moss Agate. This gentle stone promotes new beginnings and can help release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways. Often referred to as the gardener’s stone Moss Agate helps us connect to nature, the earth, and our own inner garden as well. Carry it with you or wear it during times of new growth.

**Copper is a conductor that moves energy and helps us communicate with the higher realms. It can also increase self esteem and self awareness which are essential to embracing our divine spark and our powers of manifestation.

Sodalite is a stone for the mind, it promotes clear and calm thinking. and activates intuition as it draws down information to the physical level. It dispels confusion and releases outdated thought patterns while creating space for new ideas. It also helps us to look for and find the truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself by boosting our confidence and self esteem.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Your Spiritual Outlook: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2021

Your Spiritual Outlook: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2021

May’s Theme: This month brings changes to your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!

____________________________

Hope, optimism and faith can be found when we use our spirituality as a guide. ~Cat

Today’s Message: Your Spiritual Outlook

522: Most of our work so far this month has been focused on personal change (mental and emotional). Today’s number however, will focus on changes to our spiritual outlook. Positive choices, life lessons, courage, faith, insight and Universal love are all key for today. It sounds like a lot but these things are what help shape our own unique brand of spirituality. When change arrives it brings many things including a change of perspective which flows into our being on all levels including the spiritual.

The Universe is reminding us not to ignore our spirituality. Embrace it by staying strong in faith and by remaining optimistic, as it is these things that help build a strong spiritual base from which all good things grow.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

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 as it enhances and brings forward our spiritual nature.

The Ascended Master Padre Pio teaches us that we can heal by embracing our spirituality and he guides us through periods of spiritual growth as well.

The Hindu Goddess White Tara embodies the beauty of Divine love and shows us the path to strengthening or restoring our faith. She says: “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.” Tara’s name means “star”, and like a star she helps to guide us along our path and through life.

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Cavansite. This stone helps to guide us through major life changes as well as helping us learn from past experiences so that we don’t make the same mistakes/choices again. It also helps us to retain information that applies to spiritual growth. Cavansite helps to promote new ideas and can be used in conjunction with the Third Eye or brow chakra.

Golden (Imperial) Topaz helps to strengthen our confidence, faith and optimistic outlook as it reminds us of our own divine origins. It can also be used to re-energize the body and spirit which assists us in overcoming our self-imposed limitations.

Ulexite (TV stone). This clear stone helps to burn away mental fog and promotes clarity of vision and thinking. It can be used during meditation and to promote relaxation

Happy Friday,

The past year has been trying to say the least. With all of the separation and isolation it’s easy to become bored. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The key is to welcome our innate sense of curiosity. Start something new, learn something new, do something new. Look for things that ignite that spark and invite you to know more!

Happy Friday,

Music is everywhere and everything has it’s own rhythm, it’s own beat. From the music we listen to, to the sounds of nature or the sounds of the city.Sometimes its a combination of sound. Music can heal, calm, and inspire and everyone has their favorites. Most of all music makes us feel. Today I challenge you to try a new genre of music and see where it takes you, how it activates what lies within. Let your spirit soar!

You Have Courage: Cat’s Angel Message for May 23, 2020

May Theme: This month brings changes and growth into your life.  Be willing to embrace them and allow things to happen naturally as this will help us focus on bigger and better things!


Asking for what you need isn’t a sign of weakness. It shows you have courage. ~Cat


523: We have divine assistance on our side in the form of the Universe and its helpers. While this assistance is always important it is more so when we are going through problems or changes. Many are experiencing major life changes and the angels are offering this message of encouragement. ” We are here to help you, please don’t be afraid of what is taking place in your life. It is through times of change that your purpose and mission are revealed. These changes also bring you great blessings that open new doors and help you create the life you want!” Today’s message is all about embracing change with an attitude of excitement and expectation. Continue to work in your inner garden to make room for new growth. Above all remember to have faith in yourself and the universe. let yourself explore as you embrace your confidence and find new ways of being and doing.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel helps us in creating and maintaining strong and loving relationships. While this includes the one we have with ourselves and our own spiritual nature, it helps our relationships with others as well. Ask him to help you create an atmosphere of peace, love, and togetherness. His goal is to help us to build a strong foundation from which we can create our personal evolution.

 

The Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us to persevere in our personal quests and provides us with courage and direction. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things and shows us the way to comfortably interact with people who can help us achieve our goals.

 

The Greek goddess Nike, Lady of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things that we have accomplished. By acknowledging them we can increase our faith in ourselves as a creator. She says: “Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest too long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Agate. This humble stone is the perfect one for grounding and balancing our energies. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to make the most of our life experiences.

Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” it is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion by staying true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others. It helps us to live in the moment making it easier to snag the blessings given to us. It is also a soothing stone that calms emotions during times of change.
Yellow Jasper helps to provide clarity on both mental and emotional levels. It starts us off in a positive direction while helping us to find realistic and workable solutions that help us to attain our goals.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Inner Journey:

Open to the new

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
— Alvin Toffler

How willing are you to learn something new? How open are you to new perspectives?

When we are open, we are willing to move to places we’ve never been before. We are willing to continually review our belief systems so we can test out new ideas.

Be open to seeing things:
– from another’s point of view,
– from a higher and more inclusive perspective
– with a beginner’s attitude of wonder.
“I am always in quest of being open to what the universe will bring me.”
— Jill Bolte Taylor

A Note from the Universe

When you think a new thought, entertain a new dream, or mentally choose a new goal, your thoughts “leave” you and go out — in every direction — to the farthest corners of the planet. They carry a life force all their own, like ripples created when a pebble is tossed into a pond.

You can’t change this,  but you can totally use the heck out of it.

Think good thoughts,

Thinking
“Few people think more than two or three times a year; I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week.”

-George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

 
Shaw was a prolific writer, and so funny! He shows us how to laugh at ourselves. It is truly amazing what we can do when we put our minds to it. Whether it is writing plays like Shaw, or theory like Einstein, or music like Mozart – there are examples of brilliant ways to use our minds to create, and to change the world.

A Note from the Universe

When it comes to “having it all,”  many fine, young souls take issue with the word “have.” They’re concerned about the concept of ownership. Their soul is taunted with guilt for the pleasure it derives from material things. And they quiver at the thought of others having less than they have.

Of course, such righteous and selfless thoughts are a significant contributor to the creation of lack in a world of endless abundance, but they’ll learn.

Inner Journey: 

REMOVE THE FILTERS

“You got to look at things with the eye in your heart, not with the eye in your head.”
— Lame Deer, Medicine Man of the Oglala people

Whenever we’re thinking, our experience is being filtered through our minds. For example, when I say to myself, “What a beautiful sunset!” I am not fully experiencing the sunset because I am involved with the words in my mind.

Explore letting go of the thoughts, the words, and connecting directly with your experiences. Tune in to the silence and the sensations in your body. Be aware of the spaciousness this brings because this is truly living in the present moment.

Being present doesn’t mean that we have to abandon thinking entirely. That’s not feasible, of course. But we can experiment with what it’s like to stop thinking once in a while!

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius

Heart

“Nobody has ever measured, even the poets, how much a heart can hold.”

-Zelda Fitzgerald, 1945

The heart is associated with love. How much love can we hold in our hearts? What is our capacity for love? It is immeasurable! There’s not a limit on how many people we can love, or how much we can love, or how deeply we can love. Love can’t be quantified.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess

From the moment your eyes open, you’ll know that you’re not the one in charge today. That’s fine, too. Intuition is sharp and will not lead you astray, no matter what oddness the world tosses at you. Any challenges or problems will prove to be small ones. Keep a low profile, speak calmly and softly (when appropriate), and glide through a very lucky day
