It’s Review Time: Cat’s Angel Message for July 17, 2020

July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. You will be receiving important guidance this month so get ready to receive. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Check your progress today and be persistent about tying up loose ends. ~Cat


717: Achieving growth on personal and spiritual levels is hard work and these periods of growth occur when we initiate positive change in our lives. Today the Angels simply want us to know that we are on the right path and that our patience and persistence are paying off. Look back and review your progress and the lessons you have learned. By putting these things into practice you gain a deeper and more fulfilling view of your path. Take some time today to connect to the Divine Source (Spirit, Goddess, God ) and offer thanks for the blessings in your life or ask for Divine guidance. Like the Angels, Spirit hears and answers us although the response may be much more subtle. Since the essence of Spirit is love be sure to send out loving energy out to those who need it. When love is sent out everyone wins!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Zadkiel helps to heal our hearts and minds so that accepting support in all forms is easier. He also promotes compassion for ourselves and others while helping us to find things that we have lost, forgotten about or set aside. Ego is not a friend of truth as it forcibly tells us that we don’t need help and can do everything by ourselves. He boosts our faith and fills our hearts with peace and calm. He also helps us to remember information that will help us on this grand adventure.

 

The Ascended Master Serapis Bey brings us the necessary spiritual insight we need when dealing with negative people, feelings or situations. By surrounding yourself with loving energy you can find the peace you need to deal with off-color moments. He teaches us that loving self-care allows us the choice of removing ourselves from negative people and situations.

 

The Mayan goddess Ixchel helps to get our creative juices flowing by breaking through the barriers we have erected that are blocking our progress. Call on her if you are starting something new. ” Clear your mind and allow the creative source to fill you. New things are waiting for you to embrace them!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

The gentle energy of Blue Lace Agate helps our overall communication skills by teaching us to freely express thoughts and feelings in a peaceful manner. it also allows us to find balance and emotional clam during times of stress. This stone is associated with the Archangel Zadkiel.

 

Celestite which promotes spiritual development and teaches us to reach for personal enlightenment and helps 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.

 

Dalmation Stone. This light-hearted stone is a combination of quartz, Microline, and black tourmaline. It instills feelings of safety as it helps us to reconnect with our playful side which is important to our emotional health. It transforms outdated thinking during times when we feel stuck and enables our forward progress by encouraging a fresh perspective. This stone also promotes grounding and enhances our connection to Mother Earth. It reminds us that we are a part of her as well as being spiritual beings on a very human journey.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Inner Journey:

Willingness to change

“At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.”
— Thich Nhat Hahn

How are you feeling in this moment? If you are not feeling great, are you willing to make the effort right now to shift your focus so you feel better? Finding something to appreciate will do it.

If you are not willing, that’s okay. Don’t judge yourself. Just be aware that you are choosing to stay where you are.

“Choice of attention… is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases, a man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences, whatever they may be.”
— W.H. Auden

A Note f rom the Universe
It isn’t easy at first, but one of the greatest gifts you could ever give someone who makes your heart soar is the freedom to learn their own lessons, at their own pace.

Even trickier is discovering that one of the greatest gifts you could ever give someone who gets on your nerves is the freedom to learn their own lessons, at their own pace.

And perhaps most challenging of all is understanding that one of the greatest gifts you could ever give yourself is the realization that your heart soaring and your nerves fraying have never been dependent upon other people and their lessons.

Helping
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.”

-Herman Melville
When we help one person, we’re helping all people – and we’re helping ourselves. Because of our intricate connection with each other – we feel it on some deep primordial level. And it works the other way, too. When one of us is hurt, all of us are hurt. Because of technology and advances in communications, we can understand better how something like a war, way on the other side of the world affects each one of us. We see the war; we feel the emotions. People we love are far away from us, and our hearts are with them, and their families. We can help them with our thoughts and prayers.

-Lissa Coffey

Kindness will take you very far today. It’s not a show of weakness or inferiority to engage in that random act of kindness. Think of it as acting out of generosity of spirit. The bigger your heart today, the more respect and cooperation will come your way. Make sure your kindness is genuine and from a genuine place. Then you’re virtually unassailable

Keep Improving: Cat’s Angel Message for March 12, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Keep Improving: Cat’s Angel Message for March 12, 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 way for a young man to rise is to improve himself in every way he can, never suspecting that anybody wishes to hinder him. – Abraham Lincoln


312: The Universe is speaking to us today through repetitive thoughts, ideas and visual. These important clues are designed to 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 then the time has come to move on to something better. The key is in being honest with yourself so 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 take time to 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, remember that you are supported in every way!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raziel helps us to access and fine tune both our psychic and intuitive abilities so that we are better able to receive divine guidance.

The Ascended Master Kuthumi helps us to navigate the distractions of everyday life. He encourages us to focus on what’s important right now and to stop fighting the things that we have no control over, which blocks our problem solving and creative flow. Things flow easier when we are not struggling against the “what if’s and maybes

The Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake, they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Black Banded Agate which helps us start new things, embrace new beginnings and projects. It promotes the creativity needed to make things happen.

Chrysanthemum Stone can help to remove obstacles from our path. Since obstacles tend to pop up during periods of change, this stone promotes the harmony and the balance we need to help our forward progress.

Okenite helps clear away obstacles and teaches us the important lesson that the universe is filled with unlimited possibilities when we allow ourselves to face and adapt to change. It helps us to find our inner strength so that we can finish what we start.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Two days a year, the Northern and Southern hemispheres receive the same amount of sunlight. Not only that, each receives the same amount of light as they do dark—this is because the earth is tilted at a right angle to the sun, and the sun is directly over the equator. In Latin, the word equinox translates to “equal night.”

Daily Good: Bronnie Ware: Living Without Regrets

“Bronnie Ware is an author and speaker whose bestselling book, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, is based on her time as a palliative care worker. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Bronnie outlines these five major life regrets with Tami Simon and discusses the experiences in end-of-life care that inspired them. Bronnie explains how most regrets arise from a lack of courage and why people are willing to share so openly during their last days. Tami and Bronnie speak on the healing power of sharing our most vulnerable selves, even if it’s in a letter that we never send. Finally, they talk about maintaining trust in the flow of life and why happiness is ultimately a choice.”

These butterflies are marvelous creatures. They are the only insect that migrates to a warmer climate. In fact, National Geographic says, “it’s one of the greatest natural events on Earth.”

Inner Journey:

WHAT ARE YOU LACKING?

“Money cannot fill an empty soul.”
— Julia Cameron & Mark Bryan

Where in your life are you experiencing lack?

Are you experiencing a lack of self esteem? Of humour? Of energy? Of love? Of money and abundance? Whatever you believe you are missing, it is there to be claimed.

The first step starts with shifting your perspective. See the glass as half full rather than half empty. Focus on accepting and appreciating what you DO have, and more will be attracted to you.

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

Ideas

“Every new idea has something of the pain and peril of childbirth about it.”

-Samuel Butler (1835-1902)

It seems like ideas are a dime a dozen, there are so many of them out there. But the real value comes from the execution of those ideas! Ah! How many times have we seen some invention or some new contraption and said: “I thought of that!” Yes, and someone else did, too- and the difference is that someone took that idea and ran with it, and made it a reality. It’s easy and fun to sit around and brainstorm. The “pain and peril” comes from the work that is involved in developing the idea into something that is viable, something that is tangible.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.

Life’s True Lessons: Cat’s Angel Message for March 12, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Life’s True Lessons: Cat’s Angel Message for March 12, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


The book of life is filled with incoherent riddles. Life’s true lessons are inscribed in a corner of the margin. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


312:  The Universe is speaking to us today through repetitive thoughts, ideas and visuals. These important clues are designed to 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 then the time has come to move on to something better. The key is in being honest with yourself so 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 take 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,  remember that you are supported in every way!


Archangel Jeremiel provides both protection and direction as we navigate the avenues of self improvement. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. 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. And the Yoruban goddess Oya says ” My child change must be embraced, not ignored or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self imposed limitations.” 


Our Sacred Stone for today is Agate. This humble stone is the perfect one for grounding and balancing our energies. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to the most of our life experiences.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
