Spirit Library: Let Go of Distractions (a message from Kate Spreckley)

The form and structure of our world continues to dissolve bringing to a close certain aspects of our lives and our reality. We are being forced to let go of the past and the foundations of our reality which have sustained the dysfunctional facets of life on Earth. As a result, we are being urged to heal the ancient wounds of the past which have kept us stuck in continuous cycles of pain and suffering.

Daily Good: Practicing the Art of Wonder: Lessons from the Hummingbird

My work is loving the world.

  • Mary Oliver –

Practicing the Art of Wonder: Lessons from the Hummingbird

“A Broad-billed Hummingbird hangs for a few seconds, not three feet away. The brilliant sapphire gorget flashes for an instant, and then the tiny bird is gone in a shot, his raspy cry fading like a lost thought into the oaks. I close my eyes and try to feel the impact that the hundreds of hummingbirds I’ve seen over the past few days have had on my psyche. The swirl of their presence, their diminutive size, their radiant color, their adroit quickness, their bickering flurries, all seep into me, and finally well up into awed appreciation, just for their being in the world. Past, future, and self fall away. In that moment, Ive become the planet-as-human, in wonder at hummingbirds, feeling them as part of the splendor of life.” { read more }

July is a grand time of year to learn to recognize the constellation Scorpius the Scorpion. If you’re in the city – with no dark sky – you probably won’t see the entire constellation.

Inner Journey: LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE

“We don’t always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail…We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.”
— Julia Cameron

We are each unique beings with a unique path in life. If we wish to be fulfilled, we need to go to our own hearts for direction. We might regularly ask ourselves:

“What do I really want to do?”
“What brings me greatest happiness?”
“How can I bring more of these into my life?”
Life wants us to go for what brings us most joy and meaning.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. …I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Let me listen to me and not to them.”
— Gertrude Stein

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

Names
Juliet: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”

-Shakespeare (1564-1616)


Shakespeare has a point here in that a name is a label, and in many cases, merely an identifier. But at the same time, those letters, and syllables, come to signify something to us that is meaningful. The word alone conveys the meaning that we have attached to it.

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.

Today’s Message: Teaching By Example

529: In the last few days the universe has been reminding us about faith and how it enhances our power as a creator and our overall sense of self. As we prepare to close out the month of May the angels are sending us the following message: ” The faith you have in yourself and in the Divine plays an important part in the changes that you are making. These changes will not only help you and your loved ones they will also shed light on your divine purpose. Teach by example that faith helps to create positive change and self-empowerment.”

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal our selves and our lives and regain our self confidence and faith. This opens our spiritual eyes so that we may see what we have and how blessed we truly are as it teaches us how to make room for new things through the clearing out process. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude.

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. He 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.

The Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to find the answer to the question “How shall I live my life?” She tells us that every moment gives us opportunities for growth. ” When you are filled with indecision you move away from yourself and your power as a creator. Indecision silences you ability to hear your own inner wisdom. If you need my help just ask and I will shower you with energy that will tip the scales in the direction of what you desire.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Pink Banded Agate: This stone is a member of the Botswana Agate family. It teaches us how to look at our lives and see the big picture, as it helps us to use our creative problem-solving skills through focus and attention to detail. Pink Banded Agate also helps us to feel good about ourselves and is said to help ease stress and anxiety.

The markings on Picture Jasper make this stone excellent for creative visualization and inspiration. It helps us to see the bigger picture and the part we play in it. It can also help relieve and release deep or hidden fear and grief.

Rose Quartz brings us inner peace and harmony which is essential to increasing our faith. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. It helps to promote the softer, move loving view that we need to embrace gratitude, it soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. It works with the heart chakra to gently wash away negative feelings that we harbor against ourselves and lifts the emotions to promote joy and peace. It opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.

Spiritual Awareness : Cat’s Angel Message for March 5, 2021

March Theme: Manifesting our dreams and goal requires focus and clarity. By working on self-love we find the inner peace needed to navigate our path like a pro.

As we walk the path of gratitude pay attention to the blessings that grow along the way. ~Cat

_____________________________

35: Change is on the horizon and the Universe is sending a gentle reminder that support is available from unseen friends in high places. Like all changes the ones headed your way will benefit you in the long run. So think of this as a little spring cleaning so take the initiative and welcome them by checking expiration dates and letting go of some things that no longer work for you or that you have outgrown. This will make room for the new blessings and opportunities you have been searching for. Not only will this bring you some much needed energy it will also serve to increase your spiritual awareness and power. Stay open to receiving and be sure to allow your intuitive and creative skills to guide you as well. Add a little self care into the mix and it will help you ground, center and get back on track.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

The Greek goddess Persephone teaches us how to balance between light and dark and the importance of searching the shadows for what is lost or forgotten. Persephone tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath or has been hidden. By shedding light in dark or weedy places you often find treasures that you had forgotten or set aside. These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.

Mookite, a form of Jasper that comes in many creamy color combinations, promotes decision making and versatility. These things are important when we are faced with new experiences and find ourselves faced with the need to take action. It encourages us to be flexible during times of change and helps us to embrace new experiences with an open sense of adventure

Tangerine Quartz helps to increase our receptivity to Divine inspiration while it stimulates the mind and enhances overall creativity. It fills us with hope and joy as it restores our feelings of self worth

The Power of Believing: Cat’s Angel Message for February 3, 2021

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

____________________________

Believe in magick. Believe in good things. Above all believe in yourself! ~Cat

_____________________________

23: Your belief in yourself and the way you present yourself to the world is a manifestation of your power. Our ability to create the things we want in life comes down to one thing… Attitude. With a confident and optimistic mindset, we can increase our chances of meeting our goals and making our dreams a reality, while a pessimistic attitude effectively stops our progress. Remember to embrace confidence as you work toward your objectives. Today the Universe is reminding us that help is always available in the forms of direction, protection, and guidance. If you find yourself struggling and need help just ASK. Your spiritual helpers are always willing to assist and their insights and knowledge are valuable assets when combines with our own faith and courage. believe that you are capable of manifesting and creating great things and great things WILL happen!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel gently guides us through the manifestation process so that we are more adept at creating what we need and what we want. Remember that NEED and WANT are two separate things and by concentrating on need first all else will fall into place.

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 Nike, Lady of victory and success helps us to embrace the good things that we have accomplished. By acknowledging them we can increase our faith in ourselves as a creator. She says: “Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

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.

Dioptase helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action.

Larimar helps to remove self-imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self-sabotaging behavior by bringing out the best in us. It helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession for material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

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.”

Thinking
“A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes.”

-Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

 
Do we think “good” thoughts? Or do we worry, and stress, and speculate? When we hold in mind where we want to go, we get there. Our mind finds ways to overcome the obstacles and make our thoughts, or our visions, a reality. We can elevate ourselves with our thinking.

Time To Get Tough: Cat’s Angel Message for January 3, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Time To Get Tough: Cat’s Angel Message for January 3, 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.


Tough times never last but tough people do. – Robert H. Schuller


13:  We are powerful creators and as such we have the ability to create the life we truly want. It is through our beliefs, actions, and thoughts that we find ourselves able to step more fully into our power. Today the Universe is asking us to be the creators we are meant to be by stepping up and taking control of our destiny by initiating new growth and embracing new experiences. Remember that the creation process isn’t easy and sometimes isn’t for sissies.  However, by having faith in ourselves (and in the Universe) we are able to handle these tough decisions and situations by going with the flow rather than fighting against them. Try to go with the flow today and trust in your inner guidance system. By doing so you will be able to create more (and better) choices which will help you to take action at the right time.


Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears as he guides us through issues of self-doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress and confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by showing us how to work through obstacles that pop up as he teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self-confidence.

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. He 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.

The Mayan goddess Ixchel helps to get our creative juices flowing by breaking through the barriers we have erected that are blocking our progress. Call on her if you are starting something new. ” Clear your mind and allow the creative source to fill you. New things are waiting for you to embrace them!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Black Banded Agate which helps us start new things, embrace new beginnings and projects.

Amethyst is a powerful protector that helps to shield us from unwanted energies while dispelling anxiety and fear. It helps the decision making process by promoting common sense and spiritual insight. It also enables us to set realistic goals and sets us on the road to personal achievement. Amethyst is also associated with Archangel Michael. It calms and quiets internal chatter and “monkey mind”, which in turn enables us to relax and allow grounding and balancing to take place which helps us to focus.

Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships which are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

One With Spirit: Cat’s Angel Message for December 17, 2019

December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.


I am one with the Earth, with the Water, with the Fire, with the Air that I breathe, with all Living Things, and we are all one with Spirit. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


1217:  Today the Universe is asking us to embrace and acknowledge our own spiritual side. It’s our spirituality that essentially helps us to navigate our life path, and helps us to surround ourselves with optimistic and positive energy even when the going gets rough. It’s also through our spirituality that our power as a creator comes into play. By believing in ourselves we can generate new opportunities for prosperity and abundance on all levels. Our spiritual side also enhances our strength and confidence which helps us to see the blessings headed our way as well as the ones that currently surround us. This is a good day to simply say thank you to the Universe, it’s helpers and to yourself for being the amazing soul that you are!


Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells us that goodness and beauty surround us all the time. By keeping ourselves open to receiving these blessings it draws the things we need directly to us. This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Ascended Master, Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence.

The Celtic Goddess Aeracura shows us the way to expand and share our loving energy. She tells us, ” Playfulness and a carefree spirit are the heart of true abundance. By sharing of yourselves it creates an energy that spreads and grows.”    


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Dioptase helps us to create a more balanced life while we work toward achieving our personal goals. It also teaches us to see things in joy and the best in every action.

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.

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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Simplify, Simplify: Cat’s Angel Message for December 3, 2019

Simplify, Simplify: Cat’s Angel Message for December 3, 2019

December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.


As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness. – Henry David Thoreau


123:  We are spending the day with the Ascended Masters. The message that we are receiving from them is pretty clear cut. “In order to receive new blessings (opportunities, relationships, enlightenment etc.) you need to make room. You do this by simplifying your life and letting go of the things and people who are leeching away at your energy, time or resources. If something no longer brings you joy or is  not for your highest good it’s time to cut the cords.” The letting go process is necessary for our overall growth as well as helping to pave the way for the good things that the Universe is sending our direction. While this process can be difficult it’s definitely worthwhile. Once you start this process you will see and feel a major shift in your energy and you will feel more empowered.


The Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process . Letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important.

The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns.

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.


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.

Aquamarine balance’s emotions that can become frayed during the change that new cycles create. It helps us to move forward and navigate the ebb and flow of life.

Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it draws away negative energy and bring the rational mind forward.

ThoughtCo: Cernunnos – Wild God of the Forest

Cernunnos is a horned god found in Celtic mythology. He is connected with male animals, particularly the stag in rut, and this has led him to be associated with fertility and vegetation. Depictions of Cernunnos are found in many parts of the British Isles and western Europe. He is often portrayed with a beard and wild, shaggy hair–he is, after all, the lord of the forest

Daily Good: The Atomic Tree

This moving video takes us on a journey into the memories of one of the world’s most revered trees, a 400 year old Japanese white pine bonsai. The tree’s rings hold stories from its inception as a tiny seed, through its early years surrounded by monks who prayed in the surrounding forest. It holds memories of sunlight and purifying rain. Tended by the loving touch and care of five generations of the Yamaki family, the tree and the family survived the devastation of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. In 1976 it was gifted to the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. where it remains as a symbol of the merger of lives, forests, and the human family. { read more }

If we would listen to the universe, we would notice that it’s always whispering messages to us through songs, dreams, numbers, animals, coincidences and thoughts.
These invisible threads connect us all. Yet, we have forgotten that nature is not just our environment, but who we are at our core.

MNN: 12 enchanting quirks of the rare ghost orchid

The ghost orchid is aptly named for a few reasons. Its white flowers have a vaguely spectral appearance, and they seem to hover in the forest due to an illusion created by the leafless plant. This effect also makes the rare orchid even harder to find, especially outside the brief, unpredictable window when it blooms in summer.

PONDER THE RULES

“To do exactly as your neighbors do is the only sensible rule.”
— Emily Post

Do you have strong and clear definitions for what is acceptable and what is not?

Where have these rules come from? What’s the purpose of these judgments? What do they protect?

Can we explore new territory for ourselves and others by allowing and even welcoming spontaneity, exuberance and surprises?

“The idea that men are created free and equal is both true and misleading: men are created different; they lose their social freedom and their individual autonomy in seeking to become like each other.”
— David Riesman

A Note from the Universe

Some of what frustrates us here the most are your regrets over the past, insecurities over downtime, and self-doubts over decisions to be made.

Please, the past was only a warm-up, your downtime allows us to set a new stage, and it’s you we proudly call “the boss.”

Vision

“Visions are like dreams, only they occur in the waking state.”

-Carl G. Jung (1875-1961)

Are we awake? Are we thinking clearly? Are we seeing clearly? When we can answer these questions affirmatively and have a vision that has caught our attention, we need to do something about it. There’s a reason why certain visions come to us at certain times in our lives. And there’s a reason why certain visions come to certain people and not others. It doesn’t matter where this vision comes from, once we have it, it is ours. And it is up to us to act on it, to do what we can to make this world a better place.

-Lissa Coffey

Do Your Best: Cat’s Angel Message for September 17, 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.


Simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret. – don Miguel Ruiz


917:  Today is about positive self talk. While I’m not a fan of the whole affirmation thing, I AM a fan of “self lifting” phrases like “I CAN” and “I AM”. These phrases are some of the best words of encouragement you can gift to yourself. They ignite our courage and determination which is essential to making forward progress in our lives. They can also help us in regards to our life purpose. Remember, your life purpose revolves around things you love or feel strongly about. The spark you create with self lifting thinking helps to promote a successful attitude and helps us to move forward on our path. You are capable of manifesting great and wonderful things and it’s a good time to embrace your power and see where it leads you!


    • Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears and guides us through issues of self doubt by clearing our energy field and quieting the internal chatter so that we can access the guidance being sent to us He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress, confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by showing us how to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence. Michael helps everyone so don’t be afraid to ask him for help.

 

  • The Ascended Master Jesus helps us with all areas of faith and teaches us that true miracles often come in small packages. He also provides a clear and direct line of communication to the Divine as well as teaching us how to open up to receive divine information.

 

 

  • The Hawaiian fire goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. “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:

Deep blue Lapis Lazuli helps to open the Third Eye Chakra (mind’s eye) and stimulates our personal power. It also harmonizes our energies on all levels as this balance and strengthens our knowledge of self. It also helps us to confront the truth of a situation and promotes acceptance of the lesson involved. It promotes clarity and helps us express our opinions in a positive manner and teaches us the value of being an active listener.

Lava Stone. This simple stone is a powerful symbol of our own energy and is connected to Pele. It is a stone of rebirth and helps us to burn away unneeded layers so we can initiate new growth.

The beautiful stone “flowers” of Desert Rose Selenite help to increase our understanding of our own personal value in the universal plan. it dissolves self imposed programming and helps us replace it with something more positive
