Elephant Journal: May 15th: Intense Make or Break Time with the Taurus New Moon

The moon is exalted when in Taurus, meaning the moon and Taurus adore one another, and the sensual affinity they share means they resonate with each other deeply and harmoniously. This causes lunar energy to feel intense during this period, making us feel highly intuitive and ultra sensitive.

MNN: 12 out-of-this-world observatories

There’s nothing like sprawling out on a blanket on a darkened field, somewhere far from the city, to view a celestial light show. Staring off into a star-filled sky is one of life’s simplest yet most profound pleasures, a humbling experience that reminds us of the staggering immensity of the universe we call home.

Sometimes, however, serious stargazers need to seek out the big guns. And for that, there are observatories, telescope-housing institutions dedicated to the exploration of celestial objects: the moon, the sun, the stars and planets far away

Patheos-Pagan: Review: Italian Folk Magic

Italian Folk Magic: Rue’s Kitchen Witchery is a fantastic book and one I’ve really been wanting someone to write.

All the practices provided are so simple and just seem like mindful practices and prayers incorporated into everyday life to enchant it.

Inner Journey: 

PERSONAL POWER

“The deep root of failure in our lives is to think, ‘Oh how useless and powerless I am.’ It is essential to think strongly and forcefully, ‘I can do it,’ without boasting or fretting.”
— Dalai Lama

Angeles Arrien says that whether we are male or female, we need to develop three kinds of power. People who hold these three powers cannot be ignored.
1.Power of presence – Being really present in each moment
2.Power of communication – Speaking my truth
3.Power of position – Being willing to take a stand

“A man’s true state of power and riches is to be in himself.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces; we become the powerful force ourselves.”
— Leo Buscaglia

Dreams

“Within each one of us there is another whom we do not know. He speaks to us in dreams and tells us how differently he sees us from how we see ourselves. When, therefore, we find ourselves in a difficult situation, to which there is no solution, he can sometimes kindle a light that radically alters our attitude, the very attitude that led us into the difficult situation.” -Carl G. Jung (1875-1961)

This “another whom we do not know” is indeed our Higher Self, or God, or Spirit, or whatever we each may want to call that Divine energy within. Yet as we work on our spiritual growth, the point is to get to know this “another” and by doing so to understand that there really is no separation between us! We come to realize who we really are.

Beliefnet: 7 Things That Happen When You Take Responsibility For Your Life

Too many of us simply drift through our lives, allowing fate to take us where it may. But a life without commitment is a life wasted, and so it’s important to live on purpose, and to make intentional choices every single day.

This is how you build a life that is truly yours—you put it together, choice by choice.

Om Times: Why Intuition Fails You and What to Do About It

Intuition may fail us because we don’t know how to access it or we think it’s divine or just for special people. It is, however, is a practical skill we all have. It answers specific questions in nonlinear and non-empirical ways. Once we learn how intuition gives us information, simple tips can help us begin to tap its power in our lives, from determining what intuitive abilities are to tracking practical, intuitive experiments.

A Bountiful Moment

You are what you think about all day long

Daily Thought: Your thoughts are very powerful and will either add value to who you are or will deplete and drain you from what is rightfully yours. Make sure your thoughts are adding worth to what you are doing or planning on achieving. Do not let negative distractions take time from your consistent, continual growth and progress. Think you are a success and you will achieve the goal(s) you have set.

Daily Practice: Tell yourself throughout the day that you are a success at all that you do. Just simply say I am a success. Do not judge your accomplishments or what you are working toward achieving. Just maintain the thought that you are always successful at the goals you set to achieve

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Inner Journey: Power

“There are two kinds of men who never amount to much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.”
— Cyrus H. Curtis

How do you relate to people in authority? Depending on your character and upbringing, you may react defensively or meekly to those you perceive to hold more power than you do.

Hierarchical power dissolves in the presence of authentic power. Your true personal power has nothing to do with status. It is determined by how attuned you are to all aspects of yourself and to the needs of others.

In any exchange with a person ‘in power,’ focus your attention on meeting your mutual needs and the relationship will be both equitable and fruitful.

“Compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power.”
— Jamie Sams

Optimism

“From every scrap you make a blanket.”-Rose Chernin, in Kim Chernin, “In My Mother’s House” (1983)

When life gives you lemons… you know the rest. The sweet lemonade quenches our thirst. We can turn around a situation to benefit us. When life gives us scraps, we can make a blanket! That is so beautiful… a blanket represents warmth, security, comfort. We can literally make something real, something substantial and useful from what might be perceived as “nothing.” Look around, what scraps can we turn into blankets today?

MBG: Want To Beat Cravings & Kick-Start Weight Loss? Smell This

There’s no debate here—losing weight requires mindful eating and active exercise. While it’s easy to promote healthy lifestyle changes, what’s much harder is psychologically understanding and maintaining behavior. Inundated with high-tech apps and gadgets promising to keep us on track with healthy snacking and fitness regimes, returning to nature may be just what we need. After all, it only takes one whiff of an aroma to rewire the brain

What Have You Outgrown?: Cat’s Angel Message for March 5, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

What Have You Outgrown?: Cat’s Angel Message for March 5, 2018 

 March Theme:  This month guidance is coming from the Ascended Masters. Find what defines you and use it to inspire others. Free your creative side and share your ideas and gifts.

Well-being is making its way to you at all times.
If you will relax and find a way to allow it,
it will be your experience.
– Abraham (Esther Hicks)

35: Spring cleaning comes in all forms and the Ascended Masters are offering their assistance today in this process.  Taking care of ourselves is a good thing, it helps us ground, center and get back on track. It can also help us to pinpoint things that we have outgrown or no longer brings us joy. The clearing away of what we have outgrown play an important role in our self care and is essential to our overall well being. it helps us to re-energize and increases our spiritual and personal awareness and power. You do not need to do it all at once. Start small because even the little things can create more personal freedom to find new things that make our hearts sing!

The Ascended Master Maitreya (aka Laughing Buddha) promotes laughter, joy and peace. His joyful spirit helps us to see the things that truly bring us happiness and let go of what does not. The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin promotes self care, love and kindness. She teaches us that it is through these things that we are able to do what is ultimately best for us.

  Treat yourself to an emotional bubble bath with Rose Quartz. This softly colored stone is the essence of love and self care. It works with the heart chakra and helps us to release unexpressed emotions as it promotes self acceptance, trust and worth which are necessary to the “Spring cleaning” process.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Feb 15, 2018 “Wall’s or Bridges?”

Happy Thursday,

Life is full of distractions and obstacles, like people who want to keep you from reaching your full potential. When faced with these “stones ” in your path you have a choice. Will you allow the stones to block your path or will you take the stones and move forward, building a bridge over the obstacles? While others may want to direct us on our path the truth is that their opinions must be taken with a grain of salt. We are the only ones who really know what we need to excel and grow. Step into your power, walk your talk and make decisions that are best for you!

Dwelling In Possibility: Cat’s Angel Message for January 22, 2018

Dwelling In Possibility: Cat’s Angel Message for January 22, 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.

Understand that the right to
choose your own path
is a sacred privilege.
Use it.
Dwell in possibility.
– Oprah Winfrey

122: Within each of us lives the power of manifestation. To successfully bring our dreams and goals to life Spirit has given us the sacred tools of thought, faith and action. By using these gifts correctly and sending out positive intentions we activate our power as a creator. The goal is to plant your thought seeds (intentions) and nurture them to maturity through faith and action. Today our angels are asking us to acknowledge and honor the gifts that we’ve been given. If they are a little dusty clean them off and set them to work. Stay focused on your goals and stay present as this will help you to experience new perspectives and pathways. Remember to assist others as doors open for you because it keeps the energy flowing and creates even more opportunity.

Try working with Archangel Uriel today to resolve any problems that may come up. Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps us to take hold of our power and bring it forward  and into focus while the fiery energy of the Hawaiian goddess Pele shows us the way to personal empowerment. Pele also teaches us how to set realistic goals and how to make them happen. Our Sacred Stones for today are:

Larimar, which helps to remove self imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self sabotaging behavior and brings out the best in us. This calm stone also promotes clarity and teaches us the going with the flow is okay.

Chrysocolla draws off negative energy as it helps to cleanse and energize the chakras. It enhances our personal power, promotes good communication and inner strength.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Universe Conspires To Help: Cat’s Angel Message for January 16, 2018

The Universe Conspires To Help: Cat’s Angel Message for January 16, 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.

When you want something, all the universe conspires
in helping you to achieve it.
– Paulo Coelho

116:  As a reader one thing people ask most about is having their material needs met. The angels can and do assist us in seeing that our needs are met. However they will not supply us with MORE than we need. It’s up to us to make our own magick to gain the extras. We often forget that if we have a home, food, clothing, money to make sure our bills are paid or a car that gets where we need to go… then our needs are being met. Today we are being reminded  that YOU have the power to manifest anything and everything that you need. However our angels want to point out that while these things are important it’s also important to find and maintain balance between our material and spiritual sides. By learning to appreciate and be grateful for what we have we can focus on other important issues in our lives that also require our attention.

If we are working on creating on creating abundance then the Teutonic goddess Abundantia can help. Her gifts lie in all areas of abundance and good fortune. The Ascended Master Buddha teaches us how to achieve balance and live in moderation and Archangel Uriel can help in all areas of life by providing spiritual understanding and helping to solve problems in a positive way. Our Sacred Stones for today are Danburite which is associated with Buddha and promotes enlightenment and helps to smooth your path, and Citrine. Warm, golden Citrine is a powerful energizer and creative stone. It is also a stone of abundance that teaches how to manifest what we need  for ourselves and how to go with the flow.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
