Compassionate Talk: Cat’s Angel Message for November 14, 2020

Compassionate Talk: Cat’s Angel Message for November 14, 2020

 November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts. Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear. Pay attention to repetitive thoughts and ideas as they will keep you moving forward on your path.

When speaking to and of yourself remember to use compassion. You are worthy of the same loving energy that you give a cherished love one. ~ Cat

1114: Our message today combines the power of positive thought with self care. We know that it’s hard to be positive all the time, and this is normal. We all slip occasionally and it’s okay! The thing about negative thought patterns is that by holding on to them it can cause self harm through lack of self care. The Universe is telling us that our self care is important because if we are unable to help ourselves first we won’t be able to help those who need us. Did you know that you can turn a negative statement into a positive one by eliminating the words “IF”= That’s never going to happen and “BUT”= I lack faith and self confidence, from your positive thought vocabulary? Replace If with WHEN and But with HOWEVER and it will give your statement a positive push. If you are having trouble with being or staying positive take the time to ground-center-clear and remember to breathe. Ask the universe to help you and let yourself be open to the assistance that is waiting for you.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Zadkiel teaches us that true compassion and healing lies in our ability to forgive ourselves and others. This is essential to the letting go and letting it be processes as it allows our hearts and minds to make room and teaches us to just breathe and embrace compassion which in turn makes room for new growth. This is one of the best self-healing practices and gifts that we can give ourselves.

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, but’s, and maybes.

The Hindu Goddess White Tara embodies the beauty of Divine love and shows us the path to strengthening or restoring our faith. She says: “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.” Tara’s name means “star”, and like a star she helps to guide us along our path and through life.

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Azurite-Malachite, this powerful combination stone helps us to create new energy by focusing on the acceptance of our own power which reduces our stress levels as it boosts our self confidence.

Howlite helps us to formulate our plans to and achieve our ambitions and goals. It helps us to communicate these things in a calm and reasonable manner and tempers this with patience. Howlite also creates a link to the universal realms and prepares the mind to receive guidance.

Peridot brings new levels of awareness as it promotes growth and necessary change. It helps to sharpen the mind and enhances our self confidence. Peridot can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts that are hidden within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Loving Self-Speak: Cat’s Angel Message for September 17, 2020

Loving Self-Speak: Cat’s Angel Message for September 17, 2020

September’s Theme: “What Do I Want?” This is a question that we often ask ourselves. So as we head into Autumn and the time of introspection ask yourself that very question.

917: Today is about affirmations. While I’m not a fan of the whole affirmation thing, I AM a fan of “self lifting” phrases like “I CAN” and “I AM”. These phrases are some of the best words of encouragement you can gift to yourself. They ignite our courage, and determination which is essential to making forward progress in our lives. They can also help us in regards to our life purpose. Remember, your life purpose revolves around things you love or feel strongly about. The spark you create with self lifting thinking helps to promote a successful attitude and helps us to move forward on our path. You are capable of manifesting great and wonderful things and it’s a good time to embrace your power and see where it leads you!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Jophiel the angel of Illumination and wisdom, fills us with beautiful, loving thoughts and uplifting energy which helps us to create a fresh approach to life. Jophiel tells 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. This is a reminder that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp and by taking the time to “smell the roses” the attitude of gratitude flows more easily.

The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara teaches us that we have an unlimited supply of personal power and helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns. This gives us the skills we need to strengthen our personal boundaries so that we can be and stay strong in situations where we need to be

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 frees the energy needed to assist the creation process and help others along the way.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Desert Rose (Selenite). These beautiful stone “flowers” help to increase our understanding of our own personal value in the universal plan. It dissolves outdated self-imposed programming and helps us to replace it with new ideas and self perspective.

Golden (Imperial) Topaz helps to strengthen our confidence, faith and optimistic outlook as it reminds us of our own divine origins. It can also be used to re-energize the body and spirit which assists us in overcoming our self-imposed limitations.

Unakite. This green and pink stone helps us to see blocks that we have erected within ourselves and then provides valuable insights on removing them so that we can move forward. It helps us to appreciate the present moment and works with both base and heart chakras.

ThoughtCo: How to Hold a Gratitude Ritual

For many Pagans, autumn is a time of giving thanks. Although this is the most obvious around the Mabon holiday, if you live in the United States, most of your friends and family will be giving thanks in November. If you’d like to tie in to that a little, but with a Pagan flair, you might want to consider doing a short gratitude ritual as a way of expressing your own thankfulness

MBG: Ready For Bold Self-Love? Try These 4 Tone Ups For The Heart Chakra

There are over 700,000 heart attacks reported each year in the U.S., and cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in this country. Rightfully so, conventional medicine puts a great deal of effort toward preventing heart disease. And yet, our nation continues to die of heartbreak—literally. Managing risk factors such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, diabetes, and obesity can be very effective, yet I believe there is an additional dimension to the heart that requires an entirely different kind of support.

Daily Good: The Daily Opportunity in Randomness

“The physicist Leonard Mlodinow changes how we think about the agency we have in shaping our own destinies. As a scientist, he works with principles like Brownian motion, by which Einstein helped verify the existence of molecules and atoms. As the child of Holocaust survivors, he dances with the experience we all have: that life never goes as planned, and yet the choices we make can matter. The course of your life depends on how you react to opportunities and challenges that randomness presents to you, he says.”

Daily Tarot: The Tower

People may be expecting or needing you to be laid-back and easy to deal with but your own inclinations may make you seem more difficult and demanding. You may see yourself as just being direct while others consider you as being tactless. Save yourself a lot of grief and use extra care with your words and actions. If someone gets bent out of shape, try to catch it instantly and stop it as soon as you can.

Today’s Deity: Erecura

Erecura or Aerecura /ɛrɪˈkjʊərə/ (also found as Herecura or Eracura)was a goddess worshipped in ancient times, often thought to be Celtic in origin, mostly represented with the attributes of Proserpina and associated with the Roman underworld god Dis Pater, as on an altar from Sulzbach. She appears with Dis Pater in a statue found at Oberseebach, Switzerland, and in several magical texts from Austria, once in the company of Cerberus and once probably with Ogmios. A further inscription to her has been found near Stuttgart, Germany.

EarthSky News: Use Big Dipper to find Polaris

Tonight, use the Big Dipper in the constellation Ursa Major the Great Bear to find the sky’s northern pole star, Polaris. This is the star around which the whole northern celestial sphere appears to turn throughout the night. That’s because this star is located nearly above Earth’s northern axis. In times past, wanderers on the northern face of Earth used Polaris to stay on course

SELF TALK IS REVEALING

“If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words.”
— Chinese Proverb

What passes over your lips each day?

Are your words typically negative, critical, gossiping, deceptive, illusory, justifying, blaming, manipulative and argumentative? Are they more uplifting, inspirational, positive, questioning, beautiful, loving, universal, truthful, accepting and supportive?

The throat is our center of expression. Who we are sneaks out in our attitudes and in what we say.

“Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs.”
— Pearl Strachan Hurd

“The wise weigh their words on a scale with gold.”
— Bible

A Note from the Universe

In times of great stress and great joy you are completely surrounded by loved ones in the unseen who adore and support you, wanting to share whatever you’re experiencing.

So, at those times, if you can remember to be calm and quiet and go within, you’ll feel them, you’ll remember them, and you’ll benefit most from their presence.

Uncertainty

“If we insist on being as sure as is conceivable… we must be content to creep along the ground, and can never soar.”

-John Henry Cardinal Newman

“Playing it safe” is a choice – but if we make that choice every time, life could get boring. Sometimes it’s good to take a risk, to leap into uncertainty with both feet! Maybe we’ll fall, and maybe we’ll fly- but we won’t know “for sure” until we’ve actually done it!

Elephant Journal: How the Average Soul can use Desperation to Change their Lives.

Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend and we were talking about what inspires healing.
I asked, “What inspired you to embark on your healing journey.” She said, “I was desperate.”
Her harmful and anxiety-ridden beliefs were playing in her mind like a broken record and her negative self-talk was at an all-time high. She was in a loop and she felt trapped.

Patheos-Pagan: A Witch’s Ghost Story: The Graveyard Visitation

The wyrd part of being a witch is that “ghost stories” can be pretty normal, and they happen all year round, not just at Halloween. It isn’t everyday that I have an interactive conversation with my dead ancestors, but with the help of Spiritual Mediums, they do occasionally happen in mind-blowing ways. This is the story of when my Grandmother Frances died one May right around Beltane. Before her body was even laid to rest, her “ghost” came to find me and wish me farewell.

Nature

“Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another.”

-John Muir (1838-1914)

Who taught the grass to grow, or the bird to sing? Who makes the wind blow, or told the lion roar? It is nature. It is nature being true to Itself. Does the bird aspire to roar? Or the lion “really want to direct?” We can learn from nature, to be true to ourselves, to let our natural talents and instincts shine in endless song. And then, to grow and change and go with the flow, knowing that all of our roles in this life eventually turn from one beautiful form into another.
