MNN: From fuzzy fluffball to stately bird: The life cycle of an eagle

When a much-awaited eagle egg hatches, a tiny cottony ball of fluff slowly emerges. This fuzzy, wobbly handful of cute is utterly dependent on its doting parents. Soon, however, the white fluff gives way to brown feathers and the bird tests its wings, soaring and growing and eventually becoming a regal image of its parents. Here’s a look at how tiny eaglets make the remarkable transformation from hairy hatchlings to majestic adult birds.

Beliefnet: 5 Ways to Silence Your Inner Critic
Depression and self-criticism are great companions. Here are 5 tips to move past them.

Health Journal columnist Melinda Beck penned an amazingly accurate and helpful article in the Wall Street Journal about the self-criticism that so often accompanies depression and anxiety. Not only was I delighted that she approached such a difficult and complicated aspect of our illness with compassion and insight, but I was ecstatic to see myself as one of the “experts” mentioned with suggestions on how to silent the annoying voice that says we are incapable, weak, and worthless.

Patheos-Pagan: Principles of Bardic Awareness

Developing your awareness helps you get clear about your life, aligns you to the Sacred, and enables you to become ever more alive. It is not enough to learn about awareness intellectually, however. In order to make any difference at all, it is essential that you put what you learn into practice and integrate it into your life. Bards learn, first and foremost, that true reality is not “out there” and that life isn’t what it seems to be. They come to know that the truth lies within, in the heart. Druids call the physical world the “apparent world” to indicate that it reflects only what reality appears to be, not what it truly is.

Inner Journey: Higher Perspectives

“Bias and impartiality is in the eye of the beholder.”
— Lord Barnett

According to Andrew Schneider, the radical difference between personality awareness and soul consciousness is a difference in perspectives. Acquiring a soul perspective allows us to see things differently – and we always see a more inclusive, universal picture. This expanded view adds to an understanding, enjoyment and appreciation of life.

If I insist on hanging on to a personality perspective that is contrary to a soul perspective, the two perspectives will clash. This challenges me to find a way through to a deeper truth than I previously knew. This kind of tension between soul and personality positions is typical of the prelude to transformation that is a vital part of the soul journey.

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.”
— Sylvia Plath

A Note from the Universe

They surround you even now. They see, hear, and feel what you see, hear, and feel. They trade vantage points, study possibilities, and learn to think bigger. They brag about you, compliment you, and laugh at your jokes. They only ever squabble over who loves you most.

And of course, I’m talking about the teachers who prepared you for time and space, who’ve now become your students.

Shhhh… they’re reading this…

Daily Wisdom: April 6, 2018

Are You Finding Inner Peace?

“Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.”

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) United Nations address, Sept 1961

What I like about this quote is that while President Kennedy was obviously talking about the world situation, about establishing world peace, it also works really well if you apply the worlds toward INNER peace. Isn’t this the process that we all go through to attain higher states of consciousness and become at peace with ourselves? We change our minds, and our thoughts, to reflect what we learn and experience. We gently and quietly build new patterns and practices that help to bring peace to both our inner and outer worlds.

Thought For The Day: Jan. 29, 2018 “Me Time”

Happy Monday,

You hear people talk about ‘self care” all the time, in fact we have discussed it right here in our thought for the day. Before you start rolling your eyes at me take a minute to think about it and ask yourself “What I have I done for myself lately?” Self care, just doing something that is for YOU alone is important. You can’t be there for others if you’re burnt out. So turn off the phone, close the door and indulge in something that makes your spirit go “Aaahhhhhh……….” It’s not selfish, it’s necessary and  everything in your entire being will thank you for it!

Experience Life In All Ways: Cat’s Angel Message for December 25 , 2017 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Experience Life In All Ways: Cat’s Angel Message for December 25 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

Experience life in all possible ways –
good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter.
Experience all the dualities.
Don’t be afraid of experience,
because the more experience you have,
the more mature you become.
– Osho

1225: Today the Universe is asking us to perform a self check (it’s been awhile since we have done one!). Usually we are checking our balance or our current  life path position, but today is a little different. Today’s check involves hidden negatives. We tend to hide things that we don’t like about ourselves, our job our situation or, negative thoughts about ourselves and others. The message is simple ” Hanging on to the negative things in your life offers no benefit to  you or your loved ones. The time has come to unearth these things and heal them.” Start looking for the small hurtful places. The Winter Solstice with it’s message of new beginnings and light is a great time to activate the self healing process. While this kind of work is never easy it will help us not only on our path, it will also usher in beneficial  new blessings.  We are never alone, the Goddess, Angels and the Ascended Masters are all here to help!

Archangel Michael surrounds with his loving protection at all times especially during times of self healing. The Celtic Sun God Lugh helps us to heal from painful and negative situations. He is the embodiment of the sun itself and his energy helps to burn things away. Our Sacred Stone for today is Black Obsidian. This stone not only protects it also helps to bring  negative energy to the surface where it can be dispelled  and provides support during times of change. It takes the “things” that we’ve hidden and composts them into positive soil to support out new growth.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Oct. 17, 2017 ” Can I Get A Refill?”

Happy Tuesday,

There are times when we just feel tired,drained and empty inside. This can happen when give away too much of ourselves. Quite often we don’t realize that this is happening. We give our energy away to others who are more than willing to take everything we have and give nothing back. Taking time for yourself is important for our overall well being. Don’t ignore your inner self because that part of you always knows what you need. You have to take care of YOU first because you can’t take care of others if you’re empty. Refill, Replenish, Revive!

Making The Time: Cat’s Angel Message for October 14, 2017

AutumnAngelbyCat 2

Making The Time: Cat’s Angel Message for October 14, 2017 

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.

A man too busy to take care of health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools.

Spanish Proverb

1014: Every so often the angels encourage us to take some for a little self care. Today is that day! 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. 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 is theirs.”  Use amethyst to help cleanse your aura and heal any holes that psychic nasties leave behind. This stone will also offer protection and draw Michaels energy to you.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

A Peaceful Heart: Cat’s Angel Message for August 30, 2017  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

A Peaceful Heart: Cat’s Angel Message for August 30, 2017  

August Theme: Prosperity- Abundance- Creative Problem Solving

Nothing is worth losing your inner peace. Take action as circumstances require, but never surrender your inner peace. Stop. Breathe deeply. Close your eyes and breathe deeply again. Then, and only then take action – from a peaceful heart.  ~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie

830: Today is a good time for a little  meditation and the Ascended Masters (AM’s) are inviting you to sit them and simply be at ease. Enjoy nature sounds or soothing music and fill your mind with your favorite energizing, soothing or healing color. These are different for everyone, mine are watery blue-green or sunny yellow-orange, so whatever color speaks to you today just enjoy it! Ask you favorite AM to sit with you and allow the loving light and energy fill your entire being. Personal quiet time plays an essential role in you emotional and spiritual well being. Too often we forget or put off doing something just for ourselves so a bubble bath for the soul is always a good thing to indulge in!

Wear or carry Rose Quartz today to bring inner peace and harmony. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. Call on Archangel Jophiel and ask her to help you feel the Divine beauty within or call on Buddha to help you find your essential inner peace.

Blessings for a magickal day!

Thought for the Day: August 8, 2017 “The Nature of Self Care”

Happy Tuesday!

There are times when you just need to get outside, away from the confining walls where most of us spend our weekdays. Nature can help provide us with needed self care and stress relief. Doing something as simple as sitting in the sun for 10 minutes can clear the mind and help you to relax. I used to take my lunch break at a nearby park every day, sun, rain, or snow. I’d watch the butterflies and the birds along the river. It was a great way to put the job behind me for a time and I always left feeling refreshed. So today I leave you with these pagan words of wisdom!
