Thought For The Day: Sept. 25, 2019 “Distractions”

Happy Wednesday,

How well do you pay attention to what goes on around you? Distractions are everywhere and in this age of technology, it’s easy to chase the white rabbit and get lost. Today, give your attention to something or someone who needs it. Remember that the greatest gift we have to give is our attention.

Fulfilling Your Dreams: Cat’s Angel Message for August 19, 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!


You’re supposed to be using your gifts and fulfilling your dreams at every age. ~Victoria Moran


819:  The Universe provides us with everything that we need to make our lives happy and successful. however, it’s our job to pay attention and take advantage of what is offered to us. Remember that you have access to higher assistance as well as your own inner guidance system (use your gifts!). Extra momentum is gained when we do our best to keep things in a positive perspective and embrace the attitude of gratitude. By doing this we can manifest and create a better life for ourselves and our loved ones. Today the angels are reminding us to stay focused on our goals. This focus is essential because it broadens our outlook and helps to propel us forward into the life we want. Remember, we are all worthy of good things and by working together with the Universe we create a win-win situation!


Archangel Sandalphon delivers our prayers and requests to Spirit as well as the angels and ascended masters who are best suited to help us. His energy is gentle and very subtle and he speaks to us most often through music. The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things and reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen.  And the Greek goddess Artemis helps us to feel more comfortable accessing and listening to our inner guidance system. She tells us “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Blue Quartz helps us to understand our spiritual nature, it also brings hope as it calms the mind and helps us to become more self-reliant. Together these things promote happiness and feelings of well being.

Blue Kyanite is associated with Artemis and can stimulate intuition as well as help you to connect to your spirit guides.

Mookite (Jasper) helps us to be flexible during times of change and encourages us to embrace new experiences with an open sense of adventure.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

It’s Right There: Cat’s Angel Message for July 12, 2019

It’s Right There: Cat’s Angel Message for July 12, 2019

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive some important guidance.If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Listen to the compass of your heart. All you need lies within you. – Mary Anne Radmacher


712: Everyday we receive messages from both internal and external sources. These messages can range from mundane to life changing and can be heard, felt or seen. However, there are times when we get busy and ignore the information sent our way. Today, the Angels are asking us to pay attention. Spirit speaks to us through repetitive thoughts and ideas. They come through music, from the people around us and from visual clues. Be aware of your surroundings and your reactions to them and listen for your inner voice. The information that you receive will help you to improve something in your life so stay open and focused in the present. Don’t allow yourself to tune out or turn off as you may miss something important.


Archangel Michael gives us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. He provides direction when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction as he shows us how to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to make things happen. The Ascended Master Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love, and the Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills so that we get the information we need without the unnecessary backwash.  She teaches us how to trust in ourselves and honor our own wisdom. By following our inner guidance system we are setting ourselves on the path of authenticity and personal truth. Allow yourself to be a “huntress” like Artemis and track down your inner power. She tells us,  “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:

  • Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change. It helps to sharpen the mind and enhances our self confidence. Peridot can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts that are hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.
  •  Tiger’s Eye, which promotes steady focus and clear vision. It also helps us to recognize and access our inner resources and gives us the confidence to use them in our quest for growth.
  • 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 truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself by boosting our confidence and self esteem.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

You’ve Got To Ask: Cat’s Angel Message for June 30, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

You’ve Got To Ask: Cat’s Angel Message for June 30, 2019

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance our in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


It isn’t sufficient just to want – you’ve got to ask yourself what you are going to do to get the things you want. – Franklin D. Roosevelt


630: In the last month we have worked on achieving balance where material things are concerned. We have accomplished this by staying focused on our goals and by having faith in ourselves and that things will work out to our best advantage. As June comes to a close the Universe sends this gentle reminder, ” Help is always available and you need only to ask.” Remember that help can arrive in many forms. It comes not only from the Universe but from people, animals, blessings or events that show up in our lives. It’s important to pay attention and be present so that you can reap the rewards that come your way. The lessons of June will help you in the new month.


Sometimes asking for help is hard because our ego tells us that we have to do things by ourselves.  Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal our selves and our lives and therefore regain our self confidence and faith. He also  helps to remove any/all blocks that are associated with asking for or accepting help. 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 Greek goddess Hecate teaches us about the importance of change. She helps us to release the past and the old things that keep us from moving on and how to accept change and transition. 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 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 truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself by boosting  our confidence and self esteem.
  • Gentle 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. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations.
  • Pietersite (The Tempest Stone). Use this stone to help access our intuition and create a link to a loving level of guidance. It helps to strengthen the will and increases 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.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Elephant Journal: The 6 Best Spiritual Teachings of Wayne Dyer to help us Get Over Ourselves.

It was six months after I separated from my ex-husband that I met Wayne Dyer for the first time.
He spoke at a World Summit in Pasadena, California and I was absolutely transfixed from the moment he stepped on stage.
Wayne was powerful beyond measure, as anyone familiar with his work knows. He had a candid, no nonsense way about him and infused some of the most profound teachings I heard that day with a heaping dose of humor.

Generally, any moon that’s less than one day old (or 24 hours past new moon) is hard to spot with the eye alone, or, sometimes, even with binoculars. For the most of the world, however, the moon was over a day old after sunset on Saturday evening (April 6, 2019).

Patheos-Pagan: Weekend Witchery: It Ain’t All Spells & Rituals

My life centers around magic. A good deal of which isn’t what you might call high magic. It ain’t all spells and rituals. The magic I do these days tends toward the everyday pursuits of hearth, health, and happiness. This weekend was a prime example of how magic shows up for me and how I work it.

Inner Journey:

WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT?

“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.”
— Sir John Lubbock

Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Why are you doing what you are doing?

Is it for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons? Is it for honest service with integrity? Maybe you’ll discover you don’t know. Perhaps you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose.

This is a great way to become more conscious. Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you will receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

Spirituality & Health: The Power of the Smile
BY RUTH WILSON

“I wonder, ‘Is it OK to be happy in a world filled with greed, environmental destruction, and other forms of violence?’ I then recall Mary Oliver’s words: ‘Happiness, if done right, is a kind of holiness.’ Yes, it’s OK to smile — even necessary to do so.

Information Surrounds You: Cat’s Angel Message for July 20, 2018

Information Surrounds You: Cat’s Angel Message for July 20, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Not only must the message be correctly delivered, but the messenger himself must be such as to recommend it to acceptance. – Joseph Barber Lightfoot


720: Navigating our path requires generous amounts of courage, confidence and a few pinches of faith. We must also have an open heart and an open mind to receive the messages  and guidance that we receive. The key is remembering that messengers and messages come in all forms. (nature, music, animals, children, physical objects etc.) We can see them, hear them and even feel them. Today the Universe is telling us that important information is on the way and that we need to stay open and in the present. Don’t allow fear to overrule your judgement because you are always safe and cared for. Keep to your path and absorb the information as you travel. You just never know what may produce a valuable AHA! moment.


Archangel Sandalphon is in charge of delivering and answering prayers. You can ask him to help you receive information clearly, so be prepared for answers to come via words that simply pop into your head or through music. Ascended Master Jesus assists us with clear divine communication and provides guidance, direction and finding our faith. The Greek Goddess Artemis teaches us to honor our intuitive abilities. She tells us that  “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is  Blue Topaz which helps us tune in to the Angels of truth and wisdom, it shows how we have been doing things and helps us see where wee have strayed from our truth.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

It’s OK To Ask: Cat’s Angel Message for June 30, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

It’s OK To Ask: Cat’s Angel Message for June 30, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Refusing to ask for help when you need it is refusing someone the chance to be helpful. – Ric Ocasek


630: In the last month we have worked on achieving balance where material things are concerned. We have accomplished this by staying focused on our goals and by having faith in ourselves and that things will work out to our best advantage. As June comes to a close the Universe sends this  gentle reminder, ” Help is always available and you need only to ask.” Remember that help can arrive in many forms. It comes not only from the Universe but from people, animals, blessings or events that show up in our lives. It’s important to pay attention and be present so that you can reap the rewards that come your way. The lessons of June will help you in the new month.


Sometimes asking for help is hard because our ego tells us that we have to do things by ourselves. You can ask Archangel Raphael to help remove any/all blocks that are associated with asking for or accepting help. Both Archangel Michael and the Ascended Master Saint Germain can help by pointing us in the right direction, especially when we feel at loose ends and unsure of our nest move and the Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us to stay balanced and sheds light when we are confused, she says “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 Stone for today is Sodalite. This stone promotes integration of logic and intuition as it draws down information to the physical level. Sodalite dispels confusion and releases outdated thought patterns while creating space for new ideas. It also helps us to look for and find truth and makes it possible to stand up for our personal beliefs while remaining true to yourself.
