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

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

Embracing Change: Cat’s Angel Message for October 25, 2019

Embracing Change: Cat’s Angel Message for October 25, 2019

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


He who rejects change is the architect of decay. – Harold Wilson


1025: Changes happen all the time, some we initiate and some simply happen and take us by surprise. Does this sound familiar? Today the Universe wants us to know that the life changes we are experiencing are for the best and that it is time for us to grow. Change is often seen as a scary thing, however, it is all in how we perceive it. If we embrace the changes and see them in a positive light it becomes an adventure. In fact, life itself is an adventure and we are explorers entering new and wondrous worlds filled with new opportunities and challenges. By accepting the challenge you are forging a path into new territory where your dreams become reality!


Archangel Zadkiel reminds us that change requires compassion, understanding and quite often the forgiveness of ourselves and others. This is essential to the letting go and letting it be processes as it allows our hearts and minds to make room and just breathe and helps us to embrace compassion which makes room for new growth.

The Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. He also helps us gain spiritual insight and teaches us that loving care is essential to navigating change.

The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi teaches us that good things happen when we embrace the world with a grateful and appreciative heart. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things but first you must get out of your own way! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Rhyolite brings emotional balance and emotional release when needed. It aids our forward progress by keeping us anchored in the present while keeping the past where it belongs. This is great meditation stone and is also effective in bringing the changes needed to reach our full potential.

Hessonite Garnet encourages us to meet new challenges as it helps to promote the courage we need to move forward.

The humble Agate is perfect 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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Are You Willing: Cat’s Angel Message for September 3, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Are You Willing: Cat’s Angel Message for September 3, 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.


Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. – Brian Tracy


93:  The Universe is encouraging us to open doors by trying something new today. Maybe a new project, or try something you’ve never done before. Trying new things will draw new blessings (abundance, relationships, opportunities) into our lives and can even help us with our this month’s path work involving self exploration. Remember to continue letting go of outdated thoughts, feelings habits or things that no longer bring you joy. This makes some much needed room for the new blessings headed our way and gives them room to grow and flourish. This will help us in our quest to see the big picture and help us to embrace our personal and spiritual journey!


Archangel Raziel helps us to manifest what we need and sends new ideas our way. He 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 our limiting self beliefs and fears which hold us back from achieving and creating the life we want. The Ascended Master Maitreya teaches us that laughter and joy are an essential part of self care and creates the positive energy we need to propel us forward. It helps us to let go of stress and worry, which allows the light of faith and hope to shine through. The power of laughter clears and resets or energy field by releasing tension and emotions that have been held in check. This is an important lesson on our path, if it makes your heart sing then it’s the right direction. And the Roman goddess Vesta who oversees hearth and home. She helps us to clear space (both in our physical home and our inner home) to make room for new things and teaches us the value of letting go of what we no longer need. ” If something does not make your heart sing put it where it belongs or set it free. This will clear your inner and outer sacred space. Then open the doors and invite the new blessings inside.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

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.

Turquoise helps us with creative problem solving and promotes both balance and intuition. It is aligned with the Throat Chakra and teaches us to speak up for ourselves and to speak our truth, which can be a valuable asset when working with gratitude and our ability to create. Turquoise helps to purify our energy and clears away negative energy. it aids our problem solving skills and protects us against self sabotaging thoughts and actions

Ruby, which promotes energy and balance. This gemstone is also a stone of abundance, however, it tempers this with clarity and focus while eliminating self destructive patterns that can get in the way of our goals motivation.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Better Things: Cat’s Angel Message for August 25, 2019

Better Things: Cat’s Angel Message for August 25, 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!


Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. – Marilyn Monroe


825:  We’ve been working with faith, confidence, and intuition and today we are being asked to add self-honesty to the mix and put them to work on a different level. There are times when we need to step back and look at where we are and what surrounds us and today is one of those times. To move forward we need to make choices and decisions that speak to our personal truth. It’s time to gently let go of the things that are draining your time and energy (people, situations, and things we have outgrown) in favor of more positive pursuits. Having faith in yourself helps us to move forward, and having the confidence to use your intuition as a guide helps us to find and embrace new and better things. Stay focused and keep your mind open as this will help you see the hidden “gems” along our path!


Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive life choices. He understands that it’s hard for us to let go of people and situations even though they are holding us back or causing us unintended stress, drama or harm. Jeremiel can help ease these transitions. The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps us through the manifestation process as he protects us against psychic attack and helps us to diffuse unpleasant situations. He also helps us to heal through color, so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant. And the Hawaiian Goddess Pele reminds 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 forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • 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. 
  • Gentle Seraphinite helps to clear the heart chakra opens us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path.
  • 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.

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!

Thought For The Day: July 17, 2019 “Something New”

Happy Wednesday,

Our quote for today invites us to examine our perspective of change. Change is sometimes viewed as scary and even if something in our lives isn’t great we tend to hang on to it, usually out of fear of the unknown or simply because it feels easier. Remember that everything changes and by letting these changes happen and  embracing them we are opening the door, cleaning off the “WELCOME” mat and inviting miraculous new blessings into our lives.
