Thought For The Day: January 24, 2020 “Downtime”

Happy Friday,

Our thought today reminds us of the importance of taking a little downtime. We all need to do this once in a while. It’s easy to push this need aside when faced with the busyness that is a part of our everyday lives. Feeling drained, tired or angry are some of the signs that a break is needed. Never apologize about taking time for yourself and when you need it…. do it!

RESPONSIBILITY BRINGS POWER

“To be tested is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist.”
— Gail Sheehy

What holds you back from being all that you are?

In your journal, list at least 5 things that hold you back.

Now review your answers. Have you blamed people or factors outside of yourself?

It’s important to understand that ALL obstructions are rooted in our internal blocks. Even the problems that appear to be outside of us are only reflecting back to us problems we have inside. Once we address our inner issues, the outer problems disappear.

Be personally accountable for everything in your life and watch your perspectives shift. We claim our power when we accept responsibility for our lives.

“Conscious evolution begins as we take responsibility for clearing our own obstructions.”
— Dan Millman

Heart

“The tiny flame that lights up the human heart is like a blazing torch that comes down from heaven to light up the paths of mankind.

For in one soul are contained the hopes and feelings of all Mankind.”

-Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)

Love is strong, love is powerful – love makes all things possible. This same strength is within each one of us. Physically, our heart is the “engine” that drives our whole body. Emotionally, love is what keeps us going. Love lights the way for us.

Daily Tarot: The Tower

Your emotions and instincts are working overtime today and this can distract you from doing the simplest of things. Whatever difficulties you encounter today – and they should be small ones – you will create more problems for yourself by being too psychically overactive. If someone is preoccupied with you and wishing you to have a rough day, you’ll know it but maybe not know who it is.

Thought For The Day: Jan. 15, 2020 “Gentle Patience”

Happy Wednesday,

Healing takes time. Some things are easy to get over while others can take longer. There is no right or wrong way to heal and it takes as long as it takes, it’s never easy and almost always messy. Give yourself a little extra care and above all be patient with yourself. Take baby steps, don’t force and don’t rush. You have time and you can do this!

Bringing Peace: Cat’s Angel Message for November 19, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Bringing Peace: Cat’s Angel Message for November 19, 2019

November’s Theme:  Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


1119:  Today we are being asked to stay focused on bringing peace into our lives and those of our loved ones. When we are at peace with ourselves we feel better. This feeling reaches out and touches others and they feel better as well. The last few weeks ( and for some, it’s been months) have been stressful for many of us so it’s important to bring peace where you can and that starts with finding peace within yourself. The Universe and its helpers are here to help us achieve our necessary inner peace. Sometimes it’s through alone time and sometimes it’s created by spending quality time with family or close friends, so whatever works for you is the RIGHT way.


Call on Archangel Raguel today to give you a boost of energy and to help bring order to your thoughts. He empowers the underdog and also acts as a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves and can help you to reach your full potential. His other area of expertise lies in resolving arguments.

The Ascended Master Maitreya (Laughing Buddha) helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter, this gives us a clear perspective and keeps our energy flowing. He tells us that laughter is sacred and when the heart is alive with joy we are connected to the Infinite and filled with Nirvana-essence. Center your mind with the intent of enjoying yourself and you will find yourself centered in the moment. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process!

The Roman Goddess Venus is commonly recognized as a goddess of love and beauty, however, she also teaches us that the first step to becoming empowered is in embracing your divine energy and self worth. Venus reminds us that “You must put loving self care first. By doing so you become confidently empowered and fully connected to your own divine nature.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Rose Quartz brings inner peace and harmony. 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.

Rhodonite helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. Its calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations. It also helps to promote the feeling of brotherhood. It also helps to clear and activate the heart chakra which is essential to embracing gratitude while promoting a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity.

Nebula Stone to help you see clearly the value in everything around you as well as promoting gratitude toward yourself and others.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

What Lies Within: Cat’s Angel Message for November 14, 2019

November’s Theme:  Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


1114:  Our message today combines the power of positive thought with self care. We all know that it’s hard to be positive all the time and this is normal. We all slip occasionally and it’s okay! The thing about negative thought patterns is that by holding on to them it can cause self harm through lack of self care. The Universe is telling us that our self care is important because if we are unable to help ourselves first we won’t be able to help those who need us. Did you know that you can turn a negative statement into a positive one by eliminating the words “IF”= That’s never going to happen and “BUT”= I lack faith and self confidence, from your positive thought vocabulary? Replace If with WHEN and But with HOWEVER and it will give your statement a positive push. If you are having trouble with being or staying positive take the time to ground-center-clear and remember to breathe. Ask the universe to help you and let yourself be open to the assistance that is waiting for you.


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 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 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 too long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Azurite-Malachite, this powerful combination stone helps us to create new energy by focusing on the acceptance of our own power which reduces our stress levels as it boosts our self confidence.

Moonstone, the stone of new beginnings. This beautiful, watery stone helps to navigate the cycles of change and calms our emotions. Gently encouraging creative thinking and creative problem solving as it brings our intuitive skills forward, promoting control and confidence so these skills become more familiar and easier to access. It also provides emotional healing by helping to stabilize the emotions and draw out old emotional patterns.

Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change. It helps to sharpen the mind and enhances our self confidence. Peridot can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts that are hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.

The Best Of You: Cat’s Angel Message for October 14, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

The Best Of You: Cat’s Angel Message for October 14, 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.


Self-care is critical to having a strong inner foundation. Taking good care of YOU means the people in your life will receive the best of you rather than what is left of you. – Lorraine Cohen


1014:  Every so often we must make time for a little self care. Today the angels are reminding us that we can’t take of others if we don’t take care of ourselves first. Start your day by performing a self check, then ground, center and release any negative energy that is stuck to you. (You can call upon Archangel Michael to help with this…. see our Angelic Helper below). Then do something nice for yourself! Unplug for a while, meditate, buy yourself a gift, take a walk or even a home spa treatment. Just spend a little quality time with yourself.
Affirm : “I am healthy, whole and complete!”


Archangel Michael can help cut away all psychic hooks, lines, and cords that are draining your energy, he will help you, you just need to make the request of him. I perform this weekly and phrase this request like this: “Archangel Michael, please cut away all psychic hooks, lines, and cords that have attached to me by others, not to do them harm simply to return what does not belong to me. Fill me with love and peace”

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.

Welsh goddess Cordelia is a deity of nature and technically Spring is her season. However, she has shown up today to remind us that every season has its own unique beauty and healing energy. Embrace joy today to help you to escape the stress and let go. “Healing can be found in nature. Allow the beauty that surrounds you to renew your spirit and fill your soul with pure joy.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Morganite (aka Pink Beryl) to bring awareness to emotional needs or feelings that remain unfulfilled. It helps us to express them so that we can begin the healing process.

Rose Quartz brings inner peace and harmony. 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.

Rhyolite brings emotional balance and emotional release when needed. It aids our forward progress by keeping us anchored in the present while keeping the past where it belongs. This is great meditation stone and is also effective in bringing the changes needed to reach our full potential.

Thought For The Day: Sept. 11, 2019 “The Best remedy”

Happy Wednesday,

Sometimes a walk with Mother Nature is the best remedy.  When you get that cooped up feeling or feel like things are closing in on you try spending a little time outdoors. Sunshine is a wonderful mood booster, wind clears the mind and the senses, walking barefoot helps to ground your energy as does water.  Spending time outside will be perfect addition to your self care regimen.
