Change = Growth: Cat’s Angel Message for January 5, 2020

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness. – Lao Tzu


15:  The New Year is filled with possibilities and potential and brings us the opportunity to make changes. For example, when we make New Year’s resolutions we are attempting to initiate personal changes. We often see change as a scary thing however more often than not these changes are good things and are worthwhile if we can stick with it. Remember that  Change = Growth, so try seeing these changes as seeds to be planted and nurtured. By perceiving change in this way we find that we have more control and are more prepared when our ‘seeds of change” grow to maturity. Today the Universe is telling us that something in our life is about to change and new things are headed our way. These changes will be for the better so don’t let fear hold you back. Remember, the seeds of change that you plant along your path will help pave the way for success. Ask for Divine help if you need it and listen to your inner wisdom. You know what you need to do and this is about creating the life you want.


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 and reminds us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future.

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 Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake, they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Amber helps us to attain our goals with a clear focus and bestows a positive mental state and helps us find balance, patience, and aids in decision making.

Cerussite to keep us grounded, and stimulate new growth while teaching us to be flexible and how to adapt to the changes we have made.

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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

WHAT MESSAGE DID YOU MOST NEED TO HEAR?

“One word frees us from the weight and pain of life; that word is love.”
— Sophocles
In exploring the enneagram, Riso and Hudson have identified ‘lost messages’ that we needed to hear as children but didn’t. The absence of these words may be at the heart of our most basic fear. And unconsciously we may still be seeking to hear these words from others.
Review the following messages and note if any one touches you more strongly than the others:
1. “You are good.”
2. “You are wanted.”
3. “You are loved for yourself.”
4. “You are seen for who you are.”
5. “Your needs are not a problem.”
6. “You are safe.”
7. “You will be taken care of.”
8. “You will not be betrayed.”
9. “Your presence matters.”

“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
— Dinah Mulock

Angels

“I am a little world made cunningly

Of elements and an angelic sprite.”

-John Donne (1572-1631)

This “angelic sprite” is the element that animates us – it’s that certain something that gives us our personality, our quirks, our loving spirits. We are not just a bundle of cells, of hydrogen and oxygen and glucose and whatever – we have the capacity to learn and grow and help and heal and contribute. We are made this way by design, so we need to recognize these gifts and use them!

Cheers to the New Year: Cat’s Angel Message for January 1, 2020

 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. – Oprah Winfrey


11: Happy New Year! The new year offers us the chance to grow on personal and spiritual levels. While taking care of yourself is important we are being reminded that encouraging and cultivating our strengths is equally important. Maintaining your balance will be the key to unlocking the potential that will turn your dreams into reality. The Universe knows there is much we want to do with our lives and is reminding us to stand strong and follow the guidance that we receive. Remember that attitude is everything and what you send out will come back so take the January Theme to heart and take action when you need to. This will help feed the roots of the new growth we are striving for. Get ready for the new blessings that this new cycle has in store!


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 Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

The Egyptian Goddess Maat teaches us that the point of balance is thin and feather light. It is achieved through truth and self honesty. She reminds us to “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Pietersite (Tempest stone) helps us to work through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens our intuitive connection and creates a link to a loving level of guidance. It also helps us see the truth and strengthen our will while increasing our focus of where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm

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.
Unakite. This green and pink stone helps us to see blocks that we have erected within ourselves and then provides valuable insights on removing them so that we can move forward.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Inner Journey:

COMMITMENTS TO SERVE

“Our deepest need is for the joy that comes with …knowing we are of genuine use to others.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Holding an intention to be in service shapes our overall attitude towards life in many ways. For example, it brings a greater sensitivity and awareness of others, a commitment to harmlessness, a willingness to put others’ needs before our own and a desire to be in harmony with all.

An attitude of service also involves a willingness to be served when we truly need support.

“… there is no such thing as just existing. Everything is in service to everything else. Existence is giving and receiving. A stone gives and receives no less than a saint.”
— Jacob Needleman

Traveling Light: Cat’s Angel Message for January 15, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears. – Cesare Pavese


115:  The new year just like any new cycle brings new beginnings and change. The key to embracing change lies in how we deal with it. The truth is that change is necessary for our overall growth, although to often we see change as a scary monster which should be avoided. When dealing with change we can either fight against it or work with it. Struggling with change keeps us from growing (emotionally, mentally, spiritually) and creates unneeded stress which can keep us from achieving our desired dreams and goals. Holding grudges or unforgiving thoughts about yourself or others also keeps us from moving forward and our angels are asking us to let these things go. However, if we embrace change and allow it to unfold naturally we emerge stronger and more confident. Today the universe is asking us to make friends with change and to elevate our thinking. Stay focused on what’s important in your life and continue working toward a positive outcome. Get ready to open the doors to new adventures!


We will be working with two archangels today. Archangel Jeremiel helps us to see the changes we need to make and  helps us to move forward and Archangel Zadkiel, who helps us to forgive and  let go of past hurts and wrongs so that we can move on. The Greek goddess Hecate teaches us about the importance of change. She tells us ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must face your fears and release the past. Change and circumstance are inviting you to choose a path. It is your choice so make the one that is best for you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Tiger’s Eye which strengthens our resolve to make things happen and softens any stubbornness where change is concerned and Chrysocolla which helps us during periods of change and challenging times. It brings smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity and calm. It helps us to be more self aware and promotes self confidence that inspires both creativity and motivation.

The Stairway Of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for January 8, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


Life is a series of steps. Things are done gradually. Once in a while there is a giant step, but most of the time we are taking small, seemingly insignificant steps on the stairway of life. – Ralph Ransom


18:  A new year means new beginnings, new hopes and new dreams. But new things can sit in the wings if you haven’t done the  necessary work needed to take the next steps. Taking ALL the steps even the baby ones are important in our quest for personal evolution. Creating, generating new blessings is the goal.  Today the Universe is telling us that it’s our time to shine that it’s time to get moving….. NOW. Finish up old business to make room for new opportunities. Allow your inner wisdom to guide you. Remember that you already know what you need to let go of so find your strength and courage to do the work to make it happen. Free yourself and your energy to become the amazing creator that you are meant to be!


Archangel Michael helps us find the courage and motivation that we need to tie up loose ends and finish things. And as always he surrounds us with his divine protection.  The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps us to diffuse any unpleasant situations that arise during times of personal change. He works with color  so pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant. The Greek goddess Persephone teaches us how to liberate ourselves from the things that are holding us back so that we can forge ahead on a new path. This lady has both an iron will and compassion. She tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath. By shedding light in dark places we often find treasures we had forgotten. These treasure can form the foundations that you need.”


Our Sacred Stone is Sugilite which is sometimes called Archangel Michael’s stone. This is a stone of spiritual love and awareness and promotes Divine interaction and communication. Sugilite also encourages positive thinking and teaches us to live our truth and to trust our intuition.
