Spiritual Unite: Orb In Photos And Their Meaning

One of the most common experiences we have with the spirit world shows up in places that we might not expect  photography. Specifically, the little (or large!) balls of energy that show up in photos, that are commonly called orbs. The spiritual energy that runs through our world may be as old as time, but strangely enough, it is…

MBG:How To Have Epic Outdoor Adventures (Even When You Work A Desk Job)

Daily Good: Betty Peck’s Magic Mirror

Imagine a magic mirror that you look into to discover how truly wonderful you are. That is the kind of mirror that Betty Peck, a kindergarten teacher with more than 50 years experience, had in all of her classrooms. Whenever one of her students felt worried or unsure, Betty would gently guide the student to look into the magic mirror and say, “How could you forget how wonderful you are?!” In this short film created by a former student of Betty’s, this wise woman, now well into her 90’s, encourages us to have just such a magic mirror in every kindergarten, every household and every garden. In that way we can all say, “Thank you for every magic moment that makes it possible for me to stand here and to feel how truly wonderful I am.” { read more }

Give thanks today for all the magic moments in your own life. If you’d like, you can send a note of gratitude to Betty Peck for the countless seeds of goodness she planted in so many hearts

Come September 23rd, our closest and most precious star will align with the centre of the earth.

MNN: People like you more than you might think
(No, seriously, they do … we have research to prove it.)

For many people, the moments after a conversation — and sometimes even during the conversation — can be filled with self-doubt. There’s a lot of second guessing, like what did the person on the other side of the conversation think? And double the speculation if you’re meeting for the first time.

EarthSky News: See Venus at its brightest

On and around September 20 and 21, 2018, look for the brightest planet, Venus, now looming low in the evening twilight, dazzlingly bright. It’s now Venus’ time of greatest brilliancy, a time when the planet takes on an odd appearance; many will report it as a UFO in the days ahead. It’s a precursor to Venus’ disappearance from our evening skies in the coming weeks.

Patheos-Pagan: Mind Over Spirit: Be. QUIET. 
We’ve heard the whole thing about ‘mind over body’. I can say from experience that this is a legitimate thing—the strength of the mind, the logic and rationality and sheer strength of it, kept elements of my body in check until I was alone and free to fall apart.

Inner Journey: 

ON SELF-HONESTY

“No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne

“You cannot fake a relationship and feel right with yourself or anyone else. Changing yourself to fit what you think other people want doesn’t work. Pretending to be someone other than yourself only broadens the distancebetween the person you are and the one with whom you’re trying to establish closeness.”
— Mary Manin Morrissey

“Just as surely as distress must follow self-deceit, healing must follow self-honesty.”
— Vernon Howard

Solitude

“We’re all of us sentenced to solitary confinement inside our own skins, for life!”

-Tennessee Williams, Orpheus Descending

There comes a time when we realize that there’s no escaping it, we have to live with ourselves! How do we treat ourselves? Are we kind and loving, do we show appreciation and forgiveness? Too often we’re our own worst critics! We’re hard on ourselves when we really need a break once in awhile. Let’s work on being the kind of person whom we want to be with – and spend some time being ourselves, by ourselves.

-Lissa Coffey

 It’s About Our Choices: Cat’s Angel Message for August 25, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


It is our choices … that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. – J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets)


825: We’ve been working with faith, confidence and intuition and today we are being asked to add self honesty to the mix and  put them to work on a different level. There are times when we need to step back and  look at where we are and what surrounds us and today is one of those times. To move forward we need to make choices and decisions that speak to our personal truth. It’s time to gently let go of the things that are draining your time and energy (people, situations and energies) in favor of more positive things. Have faith in yourself to do the right things, and have the confidence to use your intuition as a guide to new and better things. Stay focused and keep your mind open as this will help you see the hidden “gems” along our path!


Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive life choices.He understands that it’s hard for us to let go of people and situations even though they are holding us back or causing us unintended stress, drama or harm. Jeremiel can help ease these transitions. The Ascended Master Melchizedek protects us against psychic attack and helps us diffuse unpleasant situations. And the Hawaiian Goddess Pele reminds us that  “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rhodonite. This gentle stone 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. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations and Cavansite to guide us during the transition through major life changes. It helps us to let go of faulty thinking and be comfortable in the knowledge of the actions we need to take.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Challenges and  Distractions: Cat’s Angel Message for July 24, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Challenges and  Distractions: Cat’s Angel Message for July 24, 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!


To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there. – Kofi Annan


724: Sometimes things happen that make it difficult to stay on our chosen path. Every day brings us new challenges and distractions (OOOoo look! Shiny!!) These distractions often come in the form of well meaning people who “just want to help”. (We all know a few of these right?) Just remember that it’s YOUR path. Be honest with yourself because  you are the only one who knows what’s best for you. If the advice you are given doesn’t mesh or is an attempt to push in a direction you’d rather not go, remind yourself that the choice is yours to make. There are also times when we question ourselves and the guidance we receive. This can happen during moments of self doubt or fear. If this happens today (or any day) take a moment to center and focus. Then ask yourself “Is this really what I want?” or “What is best for me?” Listen to the guidance that you receive and above all trust in yourself!


Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears and guides us through issues of self doubt. He helps us to find our courage and our direction. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress, confusion or when we are about head off in the wrong direction.  The Ascended Master Saint Germain works with Archangel Michael. He also provides courage and direction as well as helping us deal with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path and the Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us find our truth by being honest with ourselves about what we want and where we want go. She says, “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are  Pietersite (Tempest stone) to aid in working through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens the connection to our intuition and helps us see the truth and  Orange Calcite today to help balance the emotions and dispel fear and anxiety. It invites us to embrace our full potential and promotes problem solving.

It All Adds Up: Cat’s Angel Message for July 4, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

It All Adds Up: Cat’s Angel Message for July 4, 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!


Life is a sum of all your choices. – Albert Camus


74: Our life path is full of choices. While we do our best to make the best ones possible. However there are times  when what we choose turns out not to be in our best interest, or dare I say it……. just plain dumb. It happens and we have all been there. At times like this we find ourselves backtracking to make things right and get back on course. The key is in learning the lessons of these  mis-adventures have  and moving on. This can be hard particularly if you have trouble admitting to making a mistake. These life lessons are important to our overall growth and our ability to be honest with ourselves will help us move forward with clear vision and purpose. Today the angels are letting us know that they have great confidence in us and our ability to make good choices but if we need  help they are just a request away.


 Archangel Chamuel helps us to find what is lost. If you feel like you have wandered off your path and are having  trouble finding your way back he can help you get your bearings. The Ascended Master Vywamus offers encouragement and inspires us to keep moving forward and the Egyptian Goddess Maat teaches us to honor self truth she says “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stones for today is Turquoise which promotes wisdom and truth. This stone infuses our being with calm, activates our ability to solve problem creatively and helps us to speak our truth

Being True To Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for June 7, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Being True To Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for June 7, 2018 

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


This above all, to thine own self be true. – William Shakespeare


67: Our message today indicates positive progress. We have been doing a lot of work  with personal growth and change and the Universe is applauding our efforts. We have reached a balance check point today and the angels are asking us to make time for an internal review. Take a look and see how well balanced you are on your path and how this relates to material issues. If things are balanced out….. HIGH FIVE! However, if you are tipping the scale then it’s time to ground and center and make the adjustments needed to even things out. Actually, grounding and centering is a good plan either way. It clears the mind, promotes peace and sharpens your overall vision. Use meditation, walk barefoot in the grass or just sit and breathe. Remember that whatever works for you is the right way.


Archangel Chamuel helps us to recover things we have lost. while he usually works with lost items he can also help when we feel out of balance by showing us the reason behind it.  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. He teaches us true peace is found through embracing these things, and the Egyptian Goddess Maat teaches us that the point of balance is thin and feather light. It is achieved through truth and self honesty. She tells us “ Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations. It is also truth that keeps your inner scales balanced, your energy free and your heart feather light.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rhodonite. This gentle stone 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. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations.

Our Eyes and Hearts: Cat’s Angel Message for May 26, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Our Eyes and Hearts: Cat’s Angel Message for May 26, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. – Albert Einstein


526:  Let’s start today with a question, “What is your heart’s true desire?” The answer to this question lies within  and it is up to us to find the answer. Today, the angels are asking us to look within and be honest with ourselves about what we truly want. Take a little time today for some soul searching and ask yourself:

*What do I REALLY want from (life, myself, others)?

*Am I REALLY happy, or am I just going through the motions?

*What can I DO to change my situation for the better?

It’s important to be honest with ourselves because we too often spend our time and energy living someone else’s desire. Living your heart’s desire does not make you selfish, uncaring or a bad person. It does however create inner peace, confidence and a happier and spiritually healthier YOU!


If you are looking for a more meaningful career or a clearer idea of your life purpose the Ascended Master Saint Francis can help. The Hindu Universal Mother Devi helps us to find meaning in both life and career. If you feel lost or stuck in your life Archangel Michael can help you to get yourself back on track and move forward on your personal journey.


Our Sacred Stones for today include: Sodalite to enhance self acceptance and to aid in the release of old, outdated mental conditioning. Pietersite (the tempest stone) removes beliefs and conditioning that have been imposed by others allowing you to access your own inner guidance, and helps us to acknowledge and  walk in our own truth.

Being Your True Self: Cat’s Angel Message for March 12, 2018

March Theme:  This month guidance is coming from the Ascended Masters. Find what defines you and use it to inspire others. Free your creative side and share your ideas and gifts.


I do not need anyone’s permission to be my true self. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


312:  The Universe is speaking to us today through repetitive thoughts, ideas and visuals. These important clues can help us to improve our lives. We all have areas that need attention and  if something is not okay,  or  isn’t working out for you it’s time to move on to something better.  The key is in being honest with yourself. Don’t put frosting on a problem  and then tell yourself that it’s all better. It’s through change that we make these needed improvements and while changes takes time  remember that baby steps are the key to making them successful. Each step in itself is important so don’t be too eager and rush ahead as you might miss out on something amazing. Changes are often seen as scary but don’t let fear take over, you are supported in every way!

 The Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us stay on track by showing us where improvement is needed. He is adept at make room for new things and giving us the courage to see it through. The Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin  teaches us that change and doing what is best for yourself is often the best form of self care and Archangel Jeremiel provides both protection and direction as we navigate the avenues of self improvement.
Our Sacred Stone for today is Turquoise. This stone is both grounding and healing. It helps to purify our energy and clears away negative energy as well. Turquoise aids our problem solving skills and protects us against self self sabotaging thoughts and actions.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
