Today’s Message: Just Let Yourself Be

1014: Today the angels are reminding us that we can’t take of others if we don’t take care of ourselves first. Make today about what you need. Start your day by performing a self check, then ground, center and release any negative energy that you may have picked up. (You can call upon Archangel Michael to help with this) Remember that your goal is unwind so do something nice for yourself! Unplug for awhile, read a book, meditate, buy yourself a gift, take a walk or even a home spa treatment. Spending a little quality time with yourself helps you to relax, it can change your perspective and generate new and creative ideas. Today the angels are saying “Sit back and just breathe. Let stress and worry go and just let yourself be.”
Affirm : “I am healthy, whole and complete!”

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

This is a good time to ask Archangel Michael for assistance. When we are bombarded with the energy of others (negative or not) it creates psychic lines and hooks that attach to our energy field and effectively drain our energy. One of my spiritual mentors taught me this simple exercise: “Archangel Michael please cut away all psychic hooks, lines, and cords that have been attached to me by others. Please return these things to the people who sent them, not to do do them harm, simply to return what is theirs.” When I do this I always feel a tingly sensation on my neck/back etc followed by a sense of relief.  

The  Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and  consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back he can teach you how to let it go or let it be so you can continue moving forward.  

The Celtic goddess Nematona teaches us that healing can be found through nature as she  helps us replenish our energy. She says, ” I am the spirit of the sacred grove. I invite you to worship in my temple and feel the heartbeat of nature. This communion can heal a weary and battered soul and replenish your spirit with hope and divine peace.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Crazy Lace Agate gently boosts our self confidence and concentration while reestablishing our overall feelings of wholeness and well-being. It’s an excellent grounding stone that helps to bring balance between our negative and positive emotions.

  Dalmation Stone. This light hearted stone is a combination of quartz, microline and black tourmaline.  It instills feelings of safety as it helps us to reconnect with our playful side which is important to our emotional health and it transforms outdated thinking during times when we feel stuck and enables our forward progress by encouraging a fresh perspective This stone also promotes grounding and enhances our connection to Mother Earth.It reminds us that we are a part of her as well as being spiritual beings on a very human journey.  

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. Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Many companies today offer synthetic oils at a fraction of the cost of essential oils (essential oils are the ones actually extracted from a plant).

Inner Journey:

SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY

“Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Racing through life is very stressful. If we stay in high gear too long, we lose our ability to shift down. And when we’re stressed, we can’t access happiness, appreciation, fun, compassion, generosity, awareness of beauty and other wonderful qualities. High stress also triggers negative emotions like frustration, impatience, anger and fear.

Life has so much to offer if we will slow down and truly experience it. We must always remember that we are the ones in control of the accelerator. We CAN choose to brake.

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast — you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”
— Eddie Cantor

A Note from the Universe 

If you can get that there was once a “time” before “space,”  when all that existed was “Divine Intelligence…”

Then you can also get that there could never, later, be anything that wasn’t “Divine Intelligence.” Because what would it be made of? Where would it have come from?

Then you’d get that you must therefore be pure “Divine Intelligence” yourself and that there’s only one explanation for you being you, here and now:

From the pinnacle of your royal magnificence, the zenith of your heavenly godhood, as pure “Divine Intelligence,” you, exactly as you now are, with every freckle and blemish, are exactly who you, God, most wanted to be. And you knew exactly what you were doing.

Thy kingdom come,

The Universe

Heart

“We distrust our heart too much, and our head not enough.”

-Joseph Roux (1834-1886)

We say: Listen to your heart. Follow your heart. But do we take our own advice, or do we overthink and rationalize? Where does intuition come from? We feel it in our gut or know it in our hearts. Too often we ignore it, thinking that we know better, that logic says something different. Our heads can argue, we can debate an issue with ourselves and end up more confused than ever. But our heart doesn’t waver. It offers a clear direction. When we take the time to tune in, its message is simple.

Calm and Happy: Cat’s Angel Message for October 27, 2019

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages.  These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open to the information that you receive.


Learn to be calm and you will always be happy. – Paramahansa Yogananda


1027: Today the Universe is giving us a vacation day from the inner work that we have been doing. It’s is a great time to show yourself a little love and recharge those spiritual batteries. Ground, clear and center, meditate, take yourself to lunch or a movie, buy yourself a present or just kick back with a good book or even take a nature walk. On days like this our connection with the Divine tends to be relaxed and open. They provide the needed mental reset necessary for the next steps along your path. Gently meditate on messages that you receive today or have received recently.  Pay attention to things that excite or move you to take action as this will prepare you for some pretty nifty stuff headed our way in November!


Archangel Jophiel teaches us to slow down and appreciate the beauty around us. By taking the time to simply breathe and absorb “beauty” it can help open our communication lines by lowering the barriers we have put up.

The Ascended Master Yogananda teaches us how to open the channels of divine communication and promotes feelings of divine love. He can offer assistance in all things including your spiritual path.

The Hindu Goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit so that new information can be sent to you. “


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Ulexite (TV stone). This clear stone helps to burn away mental fog and promotes clarity of vision and thinking. It can be used during meditation and to promote relaxation.

White Topaz to help increase our connection to the Divine. This gemstone brings feelings of happiness and spiritual awareness.

Infinite Stone (Light Green Serpentine) gently opens the lines of communication so that we may receive angelic guidance.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

For our ancient ancestors, many spirits and deities were associated with nature, wildlife, and plant growth. After all, if you had just spent the winter starving and freezing, when spring arrived it was certainly time to give thanks to whatever spirits watched over your tribe. The spring season, particularly around Beltane, is typically tied to a number of pre-Christian nature spirits. Many of these are similar in origin and characteristics, but tend to vary based on region and language. In English folklore, few characters stand out as much–or are as recognizable–as the Green Man

These next several evenings – May 6, 7 and 8, 2019 – find an unobstructed horizon in the direction of sunset, and watch for the young moon and the planet Mars to pop out in your western sky as evening twilight gives way to darkness. Be sure to look for the moon rather soon after sunset on May 6 because the lunar crescent will be quite thin and may set before nightfall (depending on where you live worldwide).

Patheos-Pagan: Awesome Moments are Magick

The definition of magick is a tricky one. It is slippery and misty. It is something that is elusive and undulating. Trying to define it is like trying to hold a fistful of sand. You almost get it, but it tends to slip right through your fingers. One of my favorite definitions of magick comes from Dion Fortune said: “magic is the art of changing consciousness at will”.

Learning

“What we learn to do, we learn by doing.”

-Aristotle (384-322 B.C.)

There’s a difference between theory and practice. We may know how to meditate – all the technical points and benefits of meditation that we hear so much about. But until we actually meditate ourselves, we haven’t really learned anything about it! On a recent episode of the TV comedy “Frasier,” Frasier and his brother were trying to learn how to ride a bike by reading a book. Now we know how silly that is! And yet, that’s the same kind of thing we often do in our spiritual practices. We read about prayer, and chanting, and mantras – but to really “get it” we’ve got to do it!

Dance Lightly With Life: Cat’s Angel Message for April 17, 2019 

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


Dance Lightly With Life: Today is your day to dance lightly with life, sing wild songs of adventure, soar your spirit, unfurl your joy. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


417:  Over the last few days we’ve been working on letting go and clearing the way for new growth.  This raises our energy level and  increases our positive vibes.  We have so many reasons to be positive, and the angels want us to know that we are doing a great job. Take some time for yourself today and engage in whatever makes your spirit sing. Days like this are good for us emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Read, hike, exercise, create, dance or make use of some alone time. The possibilities are endless! Whatever you choose to do will help to promote positive flow and allow you to ground, center and balance. Start your day with a big self hug and above all be kind to yourself!


Archangel Haniel shows us how to receive with grace and gratitude. This process accelerates when we allow beauty and harmony to surround us. It’ helps us to enjoy ourselves which makes blessings easier to receive. To assist in loving self care call on  Ascended Master Maitreya (aka Laughing Buddha) who promotes laughter, joy and peace, his joyful spirit helps us to release anxiety and worry. The Celtic goddess Nematona teaches us that healing can be found through nature as she  helps us replenish our energy. She says, ” I am the spirit of the sacred grove. I invite you to worship in my temple and feel the heartbeat of nature. This communion can heal a weary and battered soul and replenish your spirit with hope and divine peace.”


To enhance this peaceful vibration use Rose Quartz to promote self love and care. Turquoise promotes creative expression which allows to see the beauty in everything while strengthening our communication process and tempering our words with wisdom. Or if you need to relax, using Blue Calcite will help as it gently soothes the nerves and anxiety or Orange Calcite which helps to balance the emotions as it energizes and cleanses.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

 Slow Down: Cat’s Angel Message for August 13, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Take time today to appreciate beauty – natural beauty, art, people. Slow down, breathe deeply, smile. It’s a beautiful world. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


813:  It’s a good day to relax and just be. The Ascended Masters (AM’s) are traveling with us today and their message is simple, ” The Universe supports you in all that you do and all your needs are being met. Trust in the guidance that you receive and allow the blessings to unfold.” Gentle reminders like this are quite often what we need to initiate a little down time. Remember that your ground, clear and center work is a good starting point for relaxation, then do whatever makes you feel chill or brings you peace. There are no right or wrong answers so allow yourself time to reset.


Work with your favorite Ascended Master today by simply asking  for what you need. (peace, comfort, healing, direction etc) or try working with Maitreya. He helps us to find our joy and our ability to laugh which is essential to our mental well being as it releases anxiety and worry. The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin is also considered an Ascended Master. She helps us surround ourselves with loving compassion and teaches us the importance of self care.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Rose Quartz and Satin Spar Selenite. Rose Quartz is the essential stone for self care. It opens the heart and soothes the spirit. The fine vibration of Satin Spar Selenite makes it a great meditation stone. It opens the crown chakra to help us receive universal guidance as it calms the emotions and promotes inner peace.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
