Taking Care of You: Cat’s Angel Message for October 14, 2018 

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. 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 the angels encourage us to take some 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, 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 awhile, 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”


Use Amethyst to help cleanse your aura and heal any holes that psychic nasties leave behind. This stone will also offer protection and draw Michael’s energy to you.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Spiritual Unite: When You Are Feeling Your Soulmates Emotions

Soulmates are people whose souls belong to the same soul group. This means, in essence, that the souls of two soulmates are more innately connected and attuned with each other due to their close relationship in what is often described as the tree of consciousness. We can think of soulmates as belonging to the same soul family or soul tribe.

MBG: There Are Two Kinds Of Kindness, And They Affect Your Brain Differently

You know that warm, expansive feeling that rolls over you when you pay for a stranger’s soy latte, let a few cars merge in front of you during rush hour, or toss a five spot into a street musician’s guitar case? Turns out, the buzz we get from giving without expecting anything in return is quite unique.

Elephant Journal: What a False Prophet, Nasty Guru & a Bliss Babe taught me about Self-Love.

Nothing is static, especially enlightenment.
Awakening to our true nature does not mean liberation from one’s personality (and its shadow), but rather, a new relationship to it.
I learned both of these in the seven years since an overnight spiritual awakening, which catapulted me into a surreal peace, followed by years of hyper-synchronicity, and rare, but intense, episodes of suffering.

MNN: Maybe those dreams you’ve been having aren’t so far out after all

All that data we collect during the day turns into unicorns at night

A good brain never sleeps.
In fact, it stays up all night to crunch the data we collect by day. And considering all that information — the countless experiences and feelings and sensations of daily life — you might imagine things get a little wild in there.

And so too do our dreams.

Patheos-Pagan: 6 Ways to Talk to the Gods (and How to Listen for an Answer)

Inner Journey: 

MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF

“What is it that makes all of us end each day with the sense that we have not lived our time, but have been lived, used by what we do?”
— Jacob Needleman

How can you free up more time for yourself?

All of the great masters counsel that we need time daily for solitude. And if we want our journey in life to be meaningful, then surely we need some free time each day to explore our inner landscapes and uncover our passions. What activities can you cutout of your life to give you more growing room?

“Why has time disappeared in our culture? How is it that after decades of inventions and new technologies devoted to saving time and labor, the result is that there is no time left? We are a time-poor society; we aretemporally impoverished. And there is no issue, no aspect of human life, that exceeds this in importance. The destruction of time is literally the destruction of life.”
— Jacob Needleman

Today’s Recipe: Lebanese Roast Chicken

I tweaked an old Lebanese kabob-type recipe and used a whole chicken so I could just marinate it, throw it in the oven, and forget about it. I served it with some warm flatbread and yogurt. I love using the roasted chicken’s super flavourful bones and pieces to make a hearty chicken broth for another meal. I butterflied my chicken for more uniform cooking. You also get better results for crispy skin this way, if you’re into it.

Nature

“The natural world is dynamic. From the expanding universe to the hair on a baby’s head, nothing is the same from now to the next moment.”

-Helen Hoover, The Waiting Hills, 1963

It is true that we are constantly changing. We understand and even welcome change when it comes to nature. We look forward to the warmth of Summer after a rainy spring. We do not mourn when Autumn turns to Winter – because we realize that it is time moving forward, that it is all a part of the cycle necessary for growth and evolution. And still, as humans, we tend to resist change, to deny it, or fight it. But Nature and its laws understand that we all fit into the big picture, and so we are along for the ride, like it or not! We might as well enjoy it, appreciate it, and learn and grow from the experience.

Amazing Things: Cat’s Angel Message for July 31, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things. – Joe Namath


731:  As the month of July comes to a close take a moment to give yourself a big hug. We’ve done a lot of work recently so be sure to acknowledge your personal growth. This is an important part of your self care routine, so don’t sell yourself short. Celebrate your wins and the effort you put forth.  Today the Angels are telling us that the work we have done is paying off even if the results aren’t visible yet. Continue the self care routine from yesterday and focus on centering and balancing as this will be important for the work that begins in August. The Universe wants you to know that you have grown in ways that you can’t begin to imagine (yet).. so stay focused, confident and above all believe in yourself!


Call on your favorite Angel, Ascended Master or Deity today. Ask for assistance wherever you need it most. Use your favorite Sacred Stones today or use Rose Quartz to promote self care, inner peace and love, Mossy Agate to connect to our Earth Mother or Hematite to to help you ground and center.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

 Invisible and Untouchable: Cat’s Angel Message for July 30, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Ninety-nine percent of who you are is invisible and untouchable. – R. Buckminster Fuller


730:  Our message today invites us to indulge in a little self care. In order to hear and receive both divine guidance, as well as our own, we must take care of ourselves. This involves keeping our energy field clear so that we can be (and stay) focused and centered. Everyday our energy field absorbs bits and pieces of what goes on around us and these things can knock us out of balance. This balance is important when it comes to receiving guidance and messages. Take some time today to ground, center and clear. Clean up your path, pick a few weeds, plant something new and even blow a few dandelions. Don’t forget to harvest some good things along the way….. you’ve earned it!


Call on Archangel Raguel today to give you a boost of energy and to help bring order to your thoughts or Archangel Michael to help clear our energy field. The Ascended Master El Morya helps us with the ground-center-clear process by shielding us from negative energy and the British Goddess Sulis teaches us about the healing and spiritually cleansing power of water. She tells us,  “Look to the elemental power of water for healing and comfort. Water has the power to cleanse away heavy and harmful energies from your body, your spirit and energy field as well.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rose Quartz. Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Joy and Laughter: Cat’s Angel Message for July 23, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Let there be more joy and laughter in your living. – Eileen Caddy


723: Today is a self care day and the Universe is encouraging us to perform a balance check.

  • Are you taking enough time for yourself or are you giving it all away?
  • Are you achieving balance between work and your personal life?
  • Are you giving and receiving  energy equally? Or tipping the scales?

Taking the time to to see where we stand is important. Remember, if our energy is off kilter it drains our energy making us tired, emotional, anxious, depressed, cranky or even just plain angry. The Ascended Masters are stepping in to assist today as they have a more intimate knowledge of the problems and feelings we face everyday.  Even if you have no pressing issues today their presence and loving energy can enliven and uplift you. Today is also a good time to ground-clear and center. This helps to not only free up our energy but opens us to the supportive energies sent by the universe.


The Ascended Master Buddha is called the Enlightened or Awakened One. During his life he lived as both prince and ascetic. When he achieved true enlightenment he came to realize that the key to happy living required moderation and balance in all things. Ascended Master Maitreya, (Laughing Buddha) teaches us that laughter is an essential part of self care. The power of laughter clears and resets or energy field by releasing tension and emotions that have been help in check.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Amethyst.This beautiful crystal is used by Tibetan monks to honor Buddha. If you’re feeling crafty make yourself a set of prayer beads to honor him and use for meditation (these are great for Archangel Michael as well).

Spirituality & Health: 5 Ways to Deal with Allergies Naturally

Allergy reactions always remind me of a roll call of the Seven Dwarfs: Sneezy, Grumpy? Here. Dopey and Sleepy, if you need to take strong allergy medicine. Doc is here if you need an appointment with the allergist. But in all seriousness, seasonal allergic rhinitis, or “hay fever” can make the summer months pretty miserable. For this week’s Healthy Habit, I went in pursuit of a few easy, natural ways to reduce allergy reactions.

MindBodyGreen:  Why Being Selfish Is Actually A Good Thing

OK, let’s come clean right off the bat: How many of you felt guilty even seeing the word “selfish” written in the title of this article?

We can all agree that our society has attached a negative connotation to the word “selfish.” It’s used in arguments to suggest that you care about yourself more than your spouse, partner, child, parent, or friend. Somehow you are deemed a “bad” person by focusing on your own needs, desires, and wants first.

Patheos-Pagan: 8 Things to do for Summer Solstice as a Solitary Pagan

Many Pagans are solitary practitioners, either by choice or by necessity. But a lot of Pagan activities for the Summer Solstice are designed for large groups. In 2014 and 2015 I wrote a series of rituals for those working alone on the Wheel of the Year. Every year they’re near the top of the list of most popular posts – here’s the Summer Solstice ritual.

Inner Journey: 

EXPLORE WITH QUESTIONS

“The word ‘question’ is derived from the Latin ‘quarrier’ (to seek) which is also the root of ‘quest.’ A creative life is a continued quest, and good questions can be very useful guides. Most useful are open-ended questions; they allow for fresh unanticipated answers to reveal themselves.”
— Source Unknown

Questions hold the power to draw out answers that surprise us. If we are on an inner journey to greater self-knowledge, we must seek to understand unfamiliar parts of ourselves. The most enlightening answers are released by our subconscious minds or by our intuition. Use questions frequently to go exploring.

Try these out:
• What qualities do you find most attractive in others? How do you exhibit those same qualities?
• What is your greatest fear? Why do you fear that?
• What message is your body trying to get through to you?

“If we would have new knowledge, we must get a whole world of new questions.”
— Susanne K. Langer

“You don’t want a million answers as much as you want a few forever questions.”
— Richard Bach

A Note from the Universe

People who do all they can, with what they’ve got, from where they are,  no matter how puny their actions, how tiny their steps, or how futile it may seem, simply have more fun. Way.

Of course, to the uninitiated it doesn’t appear that way. To them it appears as if only those taking gigantic leaps, who drive cars with fancy wheels, have loads of friends, perfect bodies, and fly around the world in First Class Sleeper Seats, are having fun. But what they don’t realize is that we’re often talking about the very same folks, just at different points in their journey.

Creativity

“To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given the chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy. As everyone else, I love to dunk my crust in it. But alone, it is not a diet designed to keep body and soul together.”  -Bette Davis

Our creativity is our nourishment, it is nutrition for our spirit! We cannot truly live without it. We are born creative beings, and we are creating every moment with every decision that we make. We are creating our lives right now.

Using Your Pilot Light: Cat’s Angel Message for June 15, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Using Your Pilot Light: Cat’s Angel Message for June 15, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Some struggle is healthy. If you can embrace it rather than be angry, you can use it as your pilot light. – Damon Wayans 


615:  Rising above negative thoughts/feeling and  indulging in self care are on the universal agenda today. There are times when rising above feels like a monumental task. This can be  especially true when there are negative things going on around us. When we experience negativity in any form it makes an impression. We get angry, freaky or we absorb it causing a harmful dis-ease that festers inside. Sounds pretty gnarly right? I mean who really wants to go on someone else’s negative roller coaster ride, or your own for that matter. This trap is easy to get caught in and we’ve all been there. The angels advice is pretty clear on this. “The best thing that you can do for yourself is to acknowledge the situation and surround it with healing energy. Then send it to us to deal with. Surround yourself with positive people and energy. Make your own self care one of your top priorities. Remember, you cannot be healthy for others if you are not healthy for yourself!”


Our helpers for today are the Archangels Michael and Zadkiel. They work together to replace  any and all negative energies that we come into contact with. You can call on Michael for protection when you feel overwhelmed with the “energies” of others, he will keep you safe both physically and emotionally. Gaining his assistance is a s easy as “Archangel Michael please help me now!” Zadkiel is the healing half of this duo. He helps us get rid of the emotional residue from negative encounters and encourages us down the path to self care.


Our Sacred Stones for today include Amethyst which is the stone of Archangel Michael. It is a powerful protective stone that works to stop energy attacks. Smoky Quartz dissolves negative emotions. Sunstone teaches us to nurture ourselves as it clears all the chakras and brings both light and energy.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
