Atlas Obscura: Cuilcagh Legnabrocky Trail

A meandering boardwalk across the bogland leads to a “stairway to heaven” with sublime views. Don’t let the charming boardwalk or Instagramable “stairway to heaven” fool you. This formidable hike takes you through some of Northern Ireland’s toughest and most desolate terrain. However, the breathtaking landscape and views from the summit of Cuilcagh Mountain surely make it worth the trek.

A Bountiful Moment:

Born into greatness conditioned into mediocrity ~Unknown

Daily Thought

Every one of us is great. There are no exceptions to this rule. Expectations, criticisms, or judgements of others change who you think you are. Believing that you are not good enough, or that you cannot do things is a sign that past judgements are embedded in your memory. Change then becomes based in a self-deficit instead of the truth. You are already great and you have everything you need to accomplish what you want.

Daily Practice

Work from a position of power today. Embrace the knowledge that you are already as great as you need to be and that your decision to achieve a goal is a choice not a need. Work from a place of choosing the next step in your journey not responding to what others are or have dictated to you.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: The Morrigan Calls More Than Warriors

What does the Morrigan want with me? I’m not a warrior.

I’ve heard that question multiple times over the past few weeks. The Morrigan the Irish Goddess of sovereignty, of battle, and of the aftermath of battle  is one of the most active deities of our time. Apparently She’s on another recruiting drive. Or perhaps She�s just recruiting in my neighborhood this time.

Inner Journey

DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF?

“At the heart of personality is the need to feel a sense of being lovable without having to qualify for that acceptance.”
— Dr. Paul Tournier

How do you see yourself as unlovable?

Take a few minutes to write down why you perceive yourself to be unlovable. Look at the list and see if you can identify where those characterizations originated. Can you pinpoint old messages from parents, teachers, and friends that led you to negative conclusions about yourself? Are those messages valid today?

The beliefs we adopt as children usually don’t hold when we view them objectively as adults. Can you let them go? Can you begin to see yourself as a unique expression of life, a genuine gift to the world?

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
— Buddha

“Limitless like the ocean are your excellent qualities.”
— Dalai Lama

Intelligence

“Intelligence alone, without wisdom and empathy for suffering, is hollow.”-John G. Stoessinger

Intelligence is a wonderful trait, it serves us well in so many ways. And yet, wisdom, which is knowledge seasoned with experience, and compassion, which is heartfelt empathy, makes us all the more intelligent.

-Lissa Coffey

Mind Body Green: Feng Shui Tweaks For Every Room In Your Home

Feng shui is about more than just moving around furniture or creating a “Zen”-looking home. Feng shui gives us tools to reduce stress, improve our well-being, and invite joy into our lives.

Similar to meditation, the practice of feng shui is deeply steeped in mindfulness, in slowing down and noticing the details in your life so that you can truly experience the present moment. The words “feng shui” are Chinese and translate to “wind” and “water.”

Tropical beaches might seem like the most inviting option for wintertime travel. That said, some northerly destinations offer festivities and attractions that make braving the cold worthwhile. Other places are not as frigid as their image suggests.

A select few destinations have become quite popular despite their sub-zero temps but, outside of festivals and major events, most don’t make it to the top of travelers� to-visit lists.

A Bountiful Moment:

No matter how great the effort. Some things just take time. Warren Buffet

Daily Thought

Patience is a learned virtue. It is difficult to wait for things to happen if you are working hard to achieve your goals. So understanding the wait is a part of the journey can provide you the opportunity to continue to grow without losing hope and momentum.

Daily Practice

Are you an impatient person? Do you lose your desire to achieve if results don�t happen immediately? If so begin to practice using your down time to find new angles to support your desired goal. Can you do more research? Can you re-evaluate what you are doing to make the journey better, easier? Down time is not the time to give up it is the opportunity to step back and look at what you are doing. It is the opportunity to add new goals and move forward from the plateau you have now reached.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: In the Presence and Service of the Gods

One need not believe in goddesses and gods to be a Pagan or a Witch or a Druid, but I can’t imagine living without the ecstasy of the divine in my life, and whole-heartedly believing in its reality.

Several months ago my wife and I were asked to take part in a Dionysus Ritual planned for PantheaCon (that big festival you read way too much about) in San Jose California. We replied with of course, but then inquired about just what the ritual would be focusing on, and if it was written yet.

A Note from the Universe

Would you mind if we filmed you for our latest documentary,  called “Life Rocks”? It’s a piece we’re doing for the Angel Network here.

You are by far the most logical choice. Not just because your life already rocks, but because you came from behind to be who you are today, and because everyone in the unseen has long been whispering about the hotly anticipated arrival of your new thriving business and a steady income.

Shhhhhh.

Intelligence

Intuition becomes increasingly valuable in the new information society precisely because there is so much data.”

-John Naisbitt

Data and information are computed in the mind. When intuition comes into play then we are thinking with our heart. Using our mind and our heart together we tend to make much more intelligent decisions.

Thought For The Day: Feb. 16, 2018 ” A Simple Reminder”

Happy Friday,

Let’s end the work week with a reminder. Life is too short to be angry or caught up in other people’s drama. It’s too short to spend your time being scared of what others think. So find that crazy, shiny, sparkly  part of yourself  and invite him or her into your life. When we cease trying to hide who we are, then  personal peace and happiness are easily found!

Laughing at Adversity: Cat’s Angel Message for February 12, 2018  

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Laughing at Adversity: Cat’s Angel Message for February 12, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.
 I contend that not only can you laugh at adversity,
but it is essential to do so if you are to deal with setbacks without defeat.
– Allen Klein

 

212: Do you know that we can be our own worst critics? Fear can cause us to be pretty hard on ourselves if things don’t go our way or happen the way we want them to. The fear of failure can stop us from moving forward. We tell ourselves that “If I don’t try, I won’t fail”. Today the angels are reminding us that there are no failures only temporary setbacks. If you try and it doesn’t work out then take an objective look at what you are trying to accomplish. Find what did work (even if it’s only one thing) then discard what didn’t. Start over using the one (or more) good thing as a starting point and go from there. Using positive self-speak like “I CAN. I WILL, I LOVE and I AM” will help keep your good vibes flowing. Remember that you are worthy of creating great things!

Archangel Raguel acts a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves. Ask for help and he can help you realize your full potential. Ascended Master Kuthumi assists us in finding and maintaining the focus needed to succeed in our goals and the Hawaiian Goddess Pele helps us to get out priorities straight so that we can set and get the goals we are striving for.

Our Sacred Stone for today is Smoky Quartz. This powerful crystal neutralizes negative energy as it helps us to work through the fear of failure. It also promotes clear insight and focus.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Letting Our Light Shine: Cat’s Angel Message for January 14, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Letting Our Light Shine: Cat’s Angel Message for January 14, 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.

As we let our light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence actually liberates others.
– Marianne Williamson

114: Positive people are like angels in human form. They are pleasant to be around, have less stress and unconsciously share their gifts with others. Today the angels are asking us to think like an angel and share our light , our pwn unique brand of positive energy with others. By sharing this divine part of ourselves with others we find that we are rewarded in several ways. By allowing ourselves to “shine” we make those around us feel good. By promoting a loving, peaceful vibe it touches others and is paid forward. Then we are again blessed when the energy we send out comes back. Positive energy can generate miracles for you and those around you. be a visionary today and see yourself and others in the best light and find the very best in every situation…. let’s make some great things happen!

Let’s work with Archangel Jophiel and find the beauty in our world and in life. We can also take inspiration from the Ascended Master Maitreya. Be joyful and share the gift of laughter. Maitreya say : ” Laughter is sacred. When you laugh you are connected to the Creator.” Laughter brings both peace and healing. Our Sacred Stone for today is Sunstone which helps you to show your joy, light and zest for life. It also clears the chakras and allows the real you to shine through.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Trust In The Light: Cat’s Angel Message for December 21 , 2017 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Trust In The Light: Cat’s Angel Message for December 21 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

Trust in the Light.
Darkness is not a force –
it is merely the absence of light.
Observe that when a light is brought to a dark place,
the darkness disappears.
Sadness is similar –
when joy is brought to suffering,
the sadness disappears.
Open yourself to the Light!
Hold back nothing,
Trust in the Light.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

 

1221:  Happy Winter Solstice! Today marks the beginning of winter and the return of the sun and longer days. Pagans will be celebrating the rebirth of the Sun. The Goddess of Winter has the following message for us. “On this longest night remember to honor you shadows as they are an important part of who you are. At dark times you may feel as if you have lost your light. While this may feel like truth, it is not. Your light like the that of the Sun is waiting to be reborn. now is the time to feel for that tiny ember inside, your spark, embrace it and allow it to grow. With the Sun’s rebirth comes a new beginning, a clean slate if you will. New choices and new paths open before you. I am here to help you step into the light! Come and walk with me!”

And now on to our Angel Message:

On this day of of celebration the Universe is asking us to  use our powers of  positive thinking and to trust in you inner guidance system and the universal energies. Remember that any statement you make can influence the outcome of any given situation,  so take care to stay away from the negative ones. As we work towards transforming our lives it’s important to make statements in the present tense (I AM, I HAVE). The Universe and its helpers want us to have the best. They are always working behind the scenes to help us manifest our dreams and goals. Remember that  when we do our part they can do theirs. Do not allow self criticism or the “Negative Nellie’s” of the world  to lower your energy,. Stay focused and move into a brighter future. 

 Archangel Jophiel encourages us to see the beauty that surrounds us and carries that beauty over into our thoughts and actions. The Celtic goddess Brigid teaches us how to express ourselves in a positive manner and how to bring our ideas to the world and give them life and The Ascended Master Maitreya ( Laughing Buddha) promotes laughter, joy and peace, his joyful spirit helps us to release anxiety and worry (which can be typical this time of year) as he teaches us healing and peace through the ability to laugh. Our Sacred Stones for today are Rose Quartz which helps us to enhance our power of creating positive statements and Topaz which supports our positive thoughts and energies.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Power of Being Spiritual: Cat’s Angel Message for December 17 , 2017 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

The Power of Being Spiritual: Cat’s Angel Message for December 17 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

We can no more do without spirituality than we can do without food, shelter, or clothing.

Ernest Holmes

1217:  Today the Universe is asking us to embrace and acknowledge our own spirituality. It’s our spirituality that essentially helps us to navigate our life path and clarifies our life purpose and  helps us to surround ourselves with optimistic and positive energy even when things get rough. It’s also through our own 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 strength and confidence 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 light-being that you are!

Archangel Jophiel helps us to slow down and appreciate our lives and what we have created for ourselves. The Ascended Master Buddha teaches us that spirituality is path to inner peace and the Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to let our inner light shine and bring beauty into our world. Our Sacred Stone for today is Agate. This humble stone helps by raising our consciousness and awareness of our life. It promotes spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to the most of our life experiences.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
