Herbal Muse: Herb Profile: Blessed Thistle

Blessed Thistle (Cnicus benedictus), also known as Spotted Thistle and St. Benedict’s Thistle, is a member of the daisy family that is native to the Mediterranean region, North Africa and western Asia. During the Middle Ages, blessed thistle was cultivated in European monastery gardens as a medicinal herb and recommended for gout and digestive complaints. In combination with fenugreek seed, blessed thistle is traditionally used as a galactagogue to stimulate lactation in nursing mothers. It is also among the 27 herbs and spices that flavor Benedictine liqueur, the recipe for which is known only to three people at any time.

ThoughtCo: Deities of the Hunt

In many ancient Pagan civilizations, gods and goddesses associated with the hunt were held in a position of high regard. While for some of today’s Pagans, hunting is considered off-limits, for many others, deities of the hunt are still honored. While this is certainly not meant to be an all-inclusive list, here are just a few of the gods and goddesses of the hunt that are honored by today’s Pagans:

MBG: This Is The Day To Check In On Your Relationship, According To Astrology 

On Monday, Venus and Jupiter will conspire to make us more gullible.
People might talk a good game, but can they back up their words with action? That’s questionable this Monday, April 15, when charming Venus in Pisces squares optimistic Jupiter. While both planets have a strict “no negative vibes” policy, refusing to take off the rose-colored glasses

Daily Good: Discovering the Sacred in Everyday Life

Tuning into the sacred of the everyday takes practice. Things around us don’t suddenly become more awe-inducing but our perception of them can change. “When something is recognized as sacred, it is known to have a quality that is beyond the material, physical world. It’s not subject to the mind’s analysis, judgment, or interpretation.” In this article by psychologist Gail Brenner, practices for opening your mind to daily graces are introduced, along with an invitation to expand your awareness through gentle reminders

Elephant Journal: This is the Soulmate we Have to Let Go Of.

I recognize soul contracts. I spot soulmates in my life almost immediately. I work tirelessly with people who are grieving the end of a relationship with a soulmate, not understanding why they came into their lives at all if they weren’t meant to be together, and unable to accept that the contract is complete and it’s simply time to let it go

EarthSky News: Mercury below Venus in morning sky

Tomorrow – April 16, 2019 – presents the closest pairing of the planets Mercury and Venus in the morning sky for all of 2019. These two worlds will be around 4 degrees (width of two fingers at an arm length) apart on the sky’s dome. They’ll be close enough together to fit (or nearly fit) inside a single binocular field. So if you see Venus, but not Mercury, in the predawn/dawn sky, try aiming binoculars at Venus to view Venus and Mercury in the same binocular field together.

Patheos-Pagan: Grounding for Beginners

Grounding is a skill that should not be ignored. The word itself is magical code for remembering who we are at the deepest level. It is a practice that grows with time, fostering inner balance and eventually combining with other techniques to become a foundation of calmness, awareness, patience, and courage.

Inner Journey: 

THE EYES OF THE SOUL
Today, we want to share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:
“My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well- being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.”

Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.

“As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the noticer.”
— Wayne Dyer

Praise

“When you do well, do not praise yourself but the gods.”

-Bias (6th cent B.C.) One of the Seven Sages of Greece

We can keep praise in check by understanding that the gifts that we bring to the world do not really come from ourselves, but from God. The good that we do, the light that shines through, is pure Spirit.

Intuitive Power: Cat’s Angel Message for March 10, 2019 

daily Angel Message sms

Intuitive Power: Cat’s Angel Message for March 10, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days. – Lao Tzu


310:  Today the ascended masters are asking us to use our intuitive skills and  look for the truth around us. This includes our personal truth as well as  the truth in the people and situations that surround us. Intuition like any talent gets better the more we use it.  This helps us to make better decisions along our path and create and maintain better relationships. By allowing ourselves to  feel and see from a more spiritual perspective we gain better communication and manifestation skills and strengthen our ability to let go of the things that are holding us back or draining our energy. Remember to take time for self care through the ground, center clear process as it helps to fine tune our intuitive receptors.  If you need help ask the masters and angels for guidance and they will guide you in the right direction.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations. The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps keep our energy balanced and flowing. This is essential for using our gifts and understanding the information we receive. The Inuit goddess Sedna helps us develop our intuition through the dreamtime, you can connect with her in or around water. (bath or shower works) “Look to your dreams to guide you.They will show you things you missed while your mind was busy and active” 


Our Sacred Stones for today are Lapis Lazuli which helps us to confront the truth of a situation and promotes acceptance of the lesson involved.  It promotes clarity and help us express our opinions in a positive manner and teaches us the value of being an active listener,  and Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it draws away negative energy and bring the rational mind forward.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: What Your Chiron Sign Reveals About Your Greatest Strengths & Weakness

According to Greek mythology, Chiron was a healer, philosopher, and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself. Chiron’s placement in your natal chart can reveal a core wound that may take a lifetime to work through. But don’t distress: Our Chiron placement is also our secret power! As we grapple with pain, we gain wisdom that we can pass on to others like a magical salve. In fact, the symbol for Chiron is shaped like a key since unlocking his powers opens up a portal to deep, inner peace.

A Bountiful Moment

Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don’t want. ~Napoleon Hill

Daily Thought: Remember to always search and focus on the positive side to any situation you are encountering. Remember there is always a positive side. It is natural in the moments of a huge upset all you can see is the downside. But never forget there are two side to everything we encounter. It just depends on what you put your attention to.

Daily Practice:Keep your mind focused on the benefits you are striving to achieve with every step you make forward. Do not let little setbacks distract you from focusing on what you set to achieve. Visualize what the end goal is. Re-evaluate your steps and re-implement some of them if you need to. But make sure you are focusing on what you want not on what is distracting you from achieving it.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

 Coffey Talk: Lucky Ladybug

Many people shriek at the site of a bug, but the ladybug evokes smiles. This pretty little red and black creature is a symbol that we often see in the Spring and Summer printed on clothes and linens along with other garden images.

The ladybird or ladybug as we’ve known to call them, is actually a member of the beetle family. It is mentioned in numerous poems and nursery rhymes and is a favorite among children because of this. The ladybird has always been dedicated to the goddesses is said to be named for the Virgin Mary. The ladybird is a symbol of good luck of prosperity and also of fertility since it is a prolific insect. One tale says that if a ladybird lands in a female’s hand, she will be married within a year.

The ladybird is also a symbol of protection. There is a story that took place in the Middle Ages where aphids and other pests were ruining the crops. In desperation, the farmers were praying to the Virgin Mary for help. Shortly afterwards, ladybirds appeared and decimated the aphids. This is symbolic of the power of the beautiful beetle and the strength that could be found in the little things. The whole is more than the sum of the parts.

The ladybird is able to protect itself from larger predators because it gives off a scent that is so strong and repellent to its attackers. It is self-reliant. The number of spots on its back is symbolic as well. The spots are said to be a marker of the time it will take for something good to happen.

EarthSky News: Bright star Vega on May evenings

Tonight, look for the star Vega, the fifth brightest star in the sky. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you’ll find this beautiful bluish star easily, simply by looking northeastward at mid-evening in May.

Try it! Just look northeast in mid-evening in May. You’ll see this bright bluish star shining above that horizon. From far south in the Southern Hemisphere, you can’t see this star until late at night in May because Vega is located so far north on the sky’s dome. Vega will reach its high point for the night around 3 to 4 hours after midnight, at which time people in the Southern Hemisphere can see this star in the northern sky. As seen from mid-northern latitudes, the star shines high overhead at this early morning hour.

Patheos-Pagan: What is part of the Lore ?

The Lore of a group develops ideologically – we choose which things to add and to emphasize based on what we already believe and do rather than by an unbiased consideration of these new items. This isn’t always a bad thing because it results in a deeper and more complex exploration of issues and ideas, unless the group or individual does not realize that is what they are doing and mistakes their biases for objectivity.

Inner Journey:

WE PROJECT OUR STRENGTHS

“Any situation that you find yourself in, is an outward reflection of your inner state of beingness.”
— El Morya

We have discussed that OUR WORLD MIRRORS WHO WE ARE BACK TO US. When we get upset by something outside of us, our reaction shows us that we have an inner wound to be healed.

Just as we can be unconscious of our wounds, we can also be unconscious of our strengths. If you are really drawn to the positive qualities in another person, you are being invited to own those same qualities in yourself.

“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.”
— Shakti Gawain

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

Connection

“Nonbeing can never be;
being can never not be.
Both these statements are obvious
To those who have seen the truth.”

-The Bhagavad Gita

So, just where do we go to see “the truth?” If there were a cruise to get there I’ll bet we’d all sign up! But we don’t have to get on a luxury ship to see the Truth. We don’t have to go anywhere. We just need to go within. It’s all there. All the answers we seek. All the miracles we chase. Look within. You’ll see.

Some people swear that the best way to keep your beau happy is to go do things together. Shared experiences act to reinforce your bond with your partner.

Hope and Trust: Cat’s Angel Message for April 21, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Hope and Trust: Cat’s Angel Message for April 21, 2018 

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


 Confidence is that feeling by which the mind embarks in great and honorable courses with a sure hope and trust in itself. – Marcus Tullius Cicero


421:  Life’s path offers us many things. Some bring happiness and joy while others cause us pain and self doubt. Today, our angels are encouraging us to step up and be our own cheerleader. While it’s nice to have someone else pat us on the back and say “Good Job!” our self confidence benefits more from the Divine voice inside. That voice offers us nudges of encouragement as well as guidance. Listen to that voice and allow yourself to receive the mental hugs it has to offer. Remember to use your I AM and I CAN thinking to boost courage and confidence. Remember, you are a creator and you are worthy of accomplishing great things!


The Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us to think clearly when we are confused or filled with indecision. She helps us to see the truth behind all situations, other people and in ourselves while promoting integrity and order. Maat also protects us against deceit and manipulation. Archangel Uriel is there to assist us when we have problems that need  solving, especially those involving life lessons and the Ascended Master Saint Germain gives us the courage and direction we need to navigate life’s ups and downs.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Carnelian which increases our self esteem and teaches us to walk in our own power. Tourmalinated Quartz can relieve depression and fear, and aids in problem solving and Golden Ray Calcite  boosts our creativity and mental energy as it transforms self limiting beliefs into a positive self image.

A certain level of stress helps us to adapt to our environment and pushes us to excel. The stress that is worrisome is chronic stress and it can affect you negatively in multiple ways.

While stress itself may not be a good thing, each of us is only here because of the stress response. Our ancestors reacted to a threat by fighting or fleeing, literally or figuratively, and so survived. Whether it was a food shortage or a physical threat,

MNN: Artisan tea farms are sprouting around the U.S

Tea played an important part in the early history of the United States. The Boston Tea Party of 1773  when 342 chests of tea were destroyed to protest a tax on tea, among other things  was one of the events that helped instigate the Revolutionary War. Though coffee culture is more dominant in the U.S., tea is still widely consumed, but almost all the leaves that make their way into American teapots are imported.

A Bountiful Moment

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Martin Luther King Jr

Daily Thought: Everyone is faced with challenges. There is no exception to this rule. We all have something that brings us times of discontent and worry. What does make us different is how you handle the adversity. Does it break you and leave you in a place of nowhere to go from here? Or does it give you a moment of pause to re-group and re-set to move on. Don�t allow a challenge or internal controversy to stop you from your dreams. Rise above the situation and move forward until the challenge is no longer in view.

Daily Practice: Practice looking at difficult times or situations by looking at them from and outside perspective. View the challenge objectively. What would you tell someone else who is going through the same situation? Become your own best friend, or confidant. Support yourself through the difficult time and become stronger and wiser once it has passed.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

OMTimes: 9 Tips to Clear Your Energy Now

The human experience involves both challenges and triumphs. It’s up to each one of us how we choose to perceive these experiences. We may choose to label an experience as good or bad; positive or negative. In reality, this is simply our perception or a personal assessment of the experience we have had. Nonetheless, these experiences are opportunities for learning and growth

Inner Journey: The Path to Wholeness

We think that God has blessed us if we don’t have too many troubles. In fact, religions have erroneously taught us that pain is punishment for our sins. We often ask, “What have I done wrong?” when things do not go the way we want.

Yet, to become ourselves in the truest and deepest sense, we must face our own duality, which of course includes facing our darkness. As souls we strive for wholeness, not for perfection.

At first, we really don’t know what is going on. We just find life difficult, challenging and often painful. Eventually, after much experience and reflection, we start to find meaning in it all. Eventually, we gladly accept the means whereby we can do the Soul work we have come for.

As we become conscious as Souls, we walk our journey purposefully, embracing the reality of our earthly nature along with the truth of our divine nature.

“When we are conscious of our personal uniqueness and our universal nature we express ourselves creatively. In this way we fulfill our dreams and our life purpose.”
— Andrew Schneider

A Note from the Universe

Whatever you focus on, you will experience.

So, when you talk about “what is” or “what was,” even if you’re just explaining to a friendly ear, you project more of the same into the future.

If you ask more than you give thanks, you’ll believe less in your own power.

And if you insist that it’s hard and that you’re lonely, you’ll find that it is and you are.

Or, you can choose to focus on what you like, what you love, and how very photogenic you are.

Perception

“We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are.” ~-The Talmud

We’re each looking through different eyes, bringing our own experiences and emotions to whatever it is we’re looking at. This is perception. Perception can change. The TRUTH remains the same… but do we see it? Do we see spirit in everything and everyone? We must recognize the spirit within ourselves and then we will see it reflected back at us everywhere we go!

MBG: How to Make Essential Oils

Way before there were multilevel marketing companies selling essential oils by the pound, there were wise healers accessing the benefits of essential oils by making poultices, salves, and medicinal teas from the raw plants. In fact, plant medicine was the only medicine for thousands of years until the pharmaceutical industry began to provide other options. Now, as the pendulum swings from the prescription pad back toward the power of plants, it�s a great time to make sure you understand what essential oils are, how they�re made, and how to use them safely and effectively.
