Light a Candle: Cat’s Angel Message for April 2, 2020

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


It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. – Chinese proverb often quoted by Eleanor Roosevelt


42: There are times when life is difficult or things just aren’t going our way. When this happens we can lose faith in ourselves, the world or with the divine. Everyone goes through this, we are only human after all. When we feel negative we tend to draw that kind of energy to us so it’s important to recognize and acknowledge it and then do our best to nip it in the bud. Today the Angels are reminding us that they are here and that our prayers have been heard. “Do not be discouraged. Have both faith and patience and embrace a calmness of spirit. This will help you generate the self-love and compassion that is needed right now.”  If you find yourself bogged down with fear, worry or negative energy try one of the following: smudge yourself with sage, go outside and ground yourself, meditate or engage in a calming activity. This self-care will help to clear your energy field as well as your mind.


Today’s Spirit Helper’s include:

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 Babylonian goddess Ishtar helps us to navigate times of darkness and change. She shows us how to access our courage. She reminds us that “Times of struggle and darkness can be intimidating. and keep you rooted in fear. Remember to stay clear on what is truly important. This focus will shine like a beacon and hold the darkness at bay.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Amethyst.  This crystal is a powerful protector and helps to shield us from unwanted energies, which it transmutes into something more positive while dispelling anxiety and fear It helps the thought process by providing focus and clearing the way to good decision making. It is also connected to Archangel Michael which allows us to feel his energy and the energy of divine love.

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.

Celestite which promotes spiritual development and teaches us to reach for personal enlightenment by helping us to find peace within. It also helps us to embrace new experiences while blending instinct and intellect to create balance and harmony while providing strength and calm.

Thought For The Day: March 31, 2020 “I Am Grounded”

Happy Tuesday,

A simple grounding exercise for today. Grounding is something that should be done on a regular basis but is more often pushed to the side because we are too busy. By taking the time to ground ourselves we clear our minds and our energy. In return, we gain inner peace, clear focus, and a sense of well being. Right now taking care of yourself is a top priority and a clear mind will help us to navigate the turbulence around us.

Thought For The Day: March 25, 2020 “Solitude”

Happy Wednesday,

Solitude is something we all crave. This alone time gives us the opportunity to do things for ourselves that we have put off. What are you doing with your time of solitude? Is there a book you want to read? A personal project that you want to do? Time with your pets? A new recipe? Maybe you just want to take a nap or long leisurely soak in the tub. The possibilities are endless and totally worth it. So how will you surprise and delight yourself today?

Daily Dream Meaning:

Stairs:

1. If the dreamer is climbing the stairs, then he is “on his way to the top.” If the staircase is bright and cheery, the climb to the top will be easy and pleasant. But if the staircase is dark and frightening, the dreamer may have to face some unpleasant situations before he gets to where he wants to be.
2. If the dreamer is descending the staircase, and the staircase is a pleasant one, then he may soon complete a difficult task and be able to relax for awhile. But if the staircase is dark and gloomy, or the dreamer is falling down the stairs, then the dreamer may be in danger of being “on his way down.” Look to other symbols in the dream to judge how this can be prevented.
3. If someone known to the dreamer is either climbing or descending the staircase, depending on whether the dreamer is at the top or the bottom, that person is either rising or descending to meet the dreamer.
4. If an unknown male figure is either climbing or descending the staircase, then the dreamer’s intellect will be challenged in some way. If it’s an unknown female figure, then emotional matters will either rise to a major turning point, or fall to a level of normalcy.
Astrological parallels: Saturn, Uranus, Pluto.
Tarot parallel: The Wheel of Fortune.

Inner Journey:

LIVING THE ADVENTURE

“I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a man’s life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should live with this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.”
— Martin Buber

A Note from the Universe

To heal, correct, rebound, settle, restore, and prevail are your natural, inborn responses that can handle ANY turbulence that comes from living within the jungles of time and space.

They’re gifts that need not be opened or figured out to be used; getting too logical will only slow you down. Simply stand aside, let spirit emerge, have no doubt, and your wings will appear.

Greatness
“Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
Could this be how we can distinguish between the great and the average? This is an important component of greatness – the ability to know that strength within, and the intelligence to use that strength rather than to rely on outside adornments (a title, a paycheck, a uniform or a vehicle) to get things done

-Lissa Coffey

A Sacred Gift: Cat’s Angel Message for March 10, 2020

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.


The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. – Albert Einstein


310: Today the Universe is 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.


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Uriel can help us to overcome obstacles by showing us where the solutions are that will lead to our success. He provides us with additional information that we need to make the most informed decisions we can. No problem is too great or too small for him to assist with. Uriel also helps us to gain spiritual understanding and creative insight. Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed or simply express gratitude for the blessings taking place in your life.

The Ascended Master Melchizedek helps keep our energy balanced and flowing. This is essential for using our gifts and understanding the information we receive. He can also help diffuse any unpleasant situations that can arise as we go through change and transformation. Since he helps us heal through color, pay attention to the colors that draw you or feel relevant.

The Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills so that we get the information we need without the unnecessary backwash. She teaches us how to trust in ourselves and honor our own wisdom and that by following our inner guidance system we are setting ourselves on the path of authenticity and personal truth. Allow yourself to be a “huntress” like Artemis and track down your inner power. She tells us, “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Angelite helps us to connect to the angelic realms by enhancing our lines of communication. It is also a good stone for healers as it strengthens attunement and perception.

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.

Purple Fluorite helps strengthen our intuitive powers as it helps dispel fixed ideas and thoughts and brings rational thinking forward so that new information is easily accepted. It is a protective stone that draws away negative energy and stress. It cleans and re-energizes the aura and promotes overall harmony and order.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Seeing Things Clearly: Cat’s Angel Message for March 7, 2020

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.


Meditation is neither shutting things out nor off. It is seeing things clearly, and deliberately positioning yourself differently in relationship to them. – Jon Kabat-Zinn


37: Take some time today to engage in meditation or downtime. Remember that meditation doesn’t necessarily mean sitting still. Go for a walk or simply gather impressions from what’s going on around you. Make note of details, feelings, thoughts, and ideas that come to you, don’t force things to come to you just let them flow naturally. You can even ask questions or gain peaceful reassurance from the Divine Sources, the Angel or Ascended Masters. Meditation is also a form of self care, which is important to our overall well-being. It helps us to regain our balance and allows us to ground and center. The Ascended Masters are just reminding us today to embrace awareness of your world and yourself and feel the budding of new growth!


Today’s Spiritual Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel reminds 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. She reminds us that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp.

The Ascended Master Babaji encourages us to follow our spiritual paths. He can show you the path to letting go of material things and how to simplify your life. You can connect with him through breathwork and yoga.

The Hindu goddess Green Tara says “Come and sit beside me. Breathe and calm your mind and heart. In the center of your being lives the fire of your own creation, feel it and bring it forward. Allow it to bring with it your confidence and courage, do not fear, I am here with you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Gentle Seraphinite helps to clears the heart chakra opens us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path.  When used with meditation promotes spiritual enlightenment and self healing.

You Deserve It: Cat’s Angel Message for February 14, 2020

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


You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection. – The Buddha


214: Today’s message is about love, it is Valentine’s Day after all! While it’s important to show love for those around you it’s equally important to show some for yourself. Today the angels are asking us to turn any fears or worries over to them and make room for some self love. By acknowledging yourself as an awesome and amazing person (and you really are!) you are affirming that you are worthy of receiving the love and positive energies around you and being sent to you. As I said earlier this week we are quite often our own worst critics so today is your chance to jump on your own bandwagon. Be your own valentine today and do something nice for yourself and don’t forget to give yourself a BIG hug and embrace the beautiful and divine spirit that is YOU!


Today’s Spiritual Helpers include: Archangel Haniel showers us with stardust, illuminating our thoughts and memories so that we can remember what magickal beings we truly are, which assists us in the creation process. In turn, this 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.

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 Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, who embodies compassion and mercy says, “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self-love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart, and spirit. Be gentle on yourself. Joy comes from embracing the simple things which will free the energy needed to assist the creation process.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Rose Quartz is the stone of love and compassion that opens and heals the heart. It reminds us of the importance of loving ourselves unconditionally as it helps us do the same with others.

Amazonite. This stone is sometimes called the stone of hope. It helps us to speak our truth with confidence and instills us with hope itself. It calms and soothes frayed nerves during times of stress and helps us to feel and embrace universal love. It works with both heart and throat chakras.

Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop.

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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
