Natural Living Ideas: How To Make Air Cleansing Rosemary & Sage Smudge Sticks

Smudging is the practice of the burning of sacred herbs for spiritual cleansing and purification. It’s a ceremony that has been practiced by Native Americans for centuries.

A selection of herbs, usually white sage or cedar, is bundled with a cotton or hemp string. The bundle is then dried. Once the herbs have thoroughly dried, it’s lit and allowed to smoulder. The smoke is then fanned around an area for cleansing.

Inner Journey:

GO FOR DEPTH

“Mastery does not come from dabbling. We have to be prepared to pay the price. We need to have the sustained enthusiasm that motivates us to give our best.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Our world now offers us a smorgasbord of opportunities. In the personal growth field alone, there is a myriad of books and products, all promising relief from what ails us. It’s easy to flip quickly from one program to another when something new captures our imagination.

If I long for change in my life, however, I need to do more than skim the surface. I need to make time and take time to both learn new approaches and then — most importantly — to apply what I’ve learned. If I jump around to new techniques too rapidly, I won’t benefit from any of them.

“Genius is only the power of making continuous efforts.”
–Elbert Hubbard

Today’s Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Meringues

I originally made these for a friend who loves the taste of chocolate peanut butter cups but finds them too heavy. This is the perfect solution! They’re so good, I now prefer these over peanut butter cups, myself. The peanut butter meringues are so crisp and light, even dipped in chocolate, they make you feel much less guilty.

Daily Wisdom

Past

“Each had his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by heart; and his friends could only read the title.”

-Virginia Woolf, 1922

It is interesting to think that we each have a past that we carry with us. No one else can see it, but it has shaped who we are. What the past has taught us shapes our character and influences our behavior, and in that way lends itself to the “title” of the book that people see when they look at us. And yet we know that “you can’t judge a book by its cover.” And more importantly, we know that each of us is still busy writing our books every day, adding pages every moment!

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.

Following The Blueprints: Cat’s Angel Message for November 3, 2019

November’s Theme:  Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. – Napoleon Hill


113:  Today the Universe is giving us a little boost in the upbeat energy department. After yesterday’s peek into the future the Universe is reminding us that we have the power to make those visions a reality. You have the ability to do whatever makes your spirit sing and makes you feel whole. Embrace new challenges and opportunities without worrying about success, remember that enjoyment is part of the adventure). Your divine helpers are here to assist you and help things fall into place. It doesn’t matter whether others understand you or not so do your best to stay above the energies of those who want to rain on your parade. Walking away is in your overall best interest and will help nurture the thought seeds of yesterday!


Archangel Uriel gives us 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 Vywamus teaches us that change can be a healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way, we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward.

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 treasures can form the foundations that you need.”


Our Sacred Stones for today includes:

Blue Quartz (Clear Quartz with blue inclusions). This stone cleanses the energy of our outer environment as it supports peaceful interactions with those around us. Blue Quartz also promotes clarity and eases any fear we may experience as we continue to explore.

Moss Agate promotes new beginnings and helps to release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It also helps us to connect to nature and the earth which is essential for the ground-clear-center process that we are working on today.

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!

Adapting to Change: Cat’s Angel Message for October 25, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 

Adapting to Change: Cat’s Angel Message for October 25, 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.


Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. – Stephen Hawking


1025:  Today’s meditation on faith revolves around change. Changes happen all the time. Some we initiate and some simply happen and take us by surprise. It sounds familiar because we talk about change on this Blog on a  regular basis. 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 Michael offers us protection and gives us the courage and motivation that we need to move in new directions. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And the Yoruban Goddess Oya  teaches us that change must be fully embraced. She says, ” My child 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 are  Hessonite Garnet to encourage us to meet new challenges and promote the courage to help us move forward, and Agate which 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 the most of our life experiences.

Grab It Before It’s Gone: Cat’s Angel Message for April 29, 2018 

 April Theme:  We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper. – Eden Phillpotts


429:  Over the last month we been working on letting go of things that no longer serve us  and strengthening our faith in the Universe and in ourselves. These things combined are creating new opportunities and opening doors. The angels are helping us now by placing these doors (and windows) of opportunity in our path. Your mission should you accept it is to accept what’s offered before the circle moves on and the doors close. if you miss out on these opportunities they will eventually come back around, although it may not be what you want or need any longer when it does.  If you are offered something that you have been waiting for grab it before it disappears!


    Archangel Michael gives us the courage we need when faced with the option to move forward and the angel Pathiel opens the gates of positive manifestation.  The Ascended Master Buddha helps us to embrace spiritual growth which helps with the process of change and the Egyptian Goddess Maat provides mental clarity if we become confused or unsure about what is being offered.


Today’s Sacred Stones include Black Banded Agate which helps us start new things, embrace new beginnings and projects. Okenite can be used to clear away obstacles and help you finish what you start. Turquoise used in conjunction with Maat promotes peace of mind and mental clarity.

Breaking the Hold: Cat’s Angel Message for February 11, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Breaking the Hold: Cat’s Angel Message for February 11, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

 

Old habits are strong and jealous.

Dorothea Brande

 

211: Today’s message is related to our habits.  Habits, both good and bad, are created  through our thoughts. Both new beginnings and positive change require us to break the hold of outdated or bad habits in order to create new growth. There comes a time when we need to perform a self check up. It’s important to periodically take a look within and find those dark and dusty areas that require clean up. Letting go of what no longer serves us in a positive way helps us cordially invites new growth and opportunities. Today the angels are reminding us we are all powerful creators who are worthy and capable of manifesting amazing things. Pay attention to signals and information you receive. Even if you can’t put this information to use right away it’s worth remembering so that when the goal presents itself you are ready to run with it.

 

Archangel Jophiel is associated with beauty and helps us to take our thoughts in that direction. She teaches us to appreciate the beauty within us and around us as she helps us to bring light to the dark areas that require a good cleaning. The Ascended Master Yogananda shows us the path to a happy, healthy life enhanced by the letting go process and 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.

 

Our Sacred Stone for today is Charoite. This stone stimulates our inner vision and helps us to see and recognize the new opportunities that come our way. It also promotes emotional support and healing as we work on the letting go process.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

May Your Mountains Rise: Cat’s Angel Message for January 28, 2018  

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

May Your Mountains Rise: Cat’s Angel Message for January 28, 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.

May your trails be crooked, winding,
lonesome,
dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
– Edward Abbey

128: Today our spiritual helpers are asking us to rise above the days drama and distractions. By staying focused on your goals we find that new doors and paths open up for us. To take advantage of these we need to be willing to let go of old habits and thought patterns. Inner wisdom will tell you that these things keep you sidetracked from getting things accomplished. We must also be flexible because when one door opens another closes. This initiates and activates growth and opportunity. Remember, the angels will not do this for you and you must do your part to make things happen. The combination of thoughts, actions and energies will all play a major role in our overall success and the key is in maintaining focus and keeping an optimistic  outlook to make things flow.

Archangel Uriel helps us to solve any problems that pop up and he promotes new and creative ideas to help us open those new doors.  The Hindu god Ganesh removes the obstacles that are keeping us from moving forward, these include obstacles that we create for ourselves and  The Greek goddess Hecate can teach us the importance of releasing the past and the things that are holding us back so that we can move forward. Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Ametrine helps to release  blocks like negative emotional programing, it helps us to grow on all levels while encouraging us to explore all possibilities and finding creative solutions. 

Agate is a humble stone, however it helps raise our consciousness and awareness of life. It brings spiritual growth and inner strength as it helps us to find the value in our life experiences.
Bright blessings for a magickal day!
