Spiritual Awareness : Cat’s Angel Message for March 5, 2021

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.

As we walk the path of gratitude pay attention to the blessings that grow along the way. ~Cat

35: Change is on the horizon and the Universe is sending a gentle reminder that support is available from unseen friends in high places. Like all changes the ones headed your way will benefit you in the long run. So think of this as a little spring cleaning so take the initiative and welcome them by checking expiration dates and letting go of some things that no longer work for you or that you have outgrown. This will make room for the new blessings and opportunities you have been searching for. Not only will this bring you some much needed energy it will also serve to increase your spiritual awareness and power. Stay open to receiving and be sure to allow your intuitive and creative skills to guide you as well. Add a little self care into the mix and it will help you ground, center and get back on track.

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 Himalayan Ascended Master Babaji helps us to achieve the personal and spiritual growth necessary for the letting go process. He assists us in detaching ourselves from both material things and things that no longer serve us. He teaches us that letting go is a form of simplifying your life. It frees your energy so that you can work on what’s important so that new blessings can be received.

The Greek goddess Persephone teaches us how to balance between light and dark and the importance of searching the shadows for what is lost or forgotten. Persephone tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath or has been hidden. By shedding light in dark or weedy places you often find treasures that you had forgotten or set aside. These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.

Mookite, a form of Jasper that comes in many creamy color combinations, promotes decision making and versatility. These things are important when we are faced with new experiences and find ourselves faced with the need to take action. It encourages us to be flexible during times of change and helps us to embrace new experiences with an open sense of adventure

Tangerine Quartz helps to increase our receptivity to Divine inspiration while it stimulates the mind and enhances overall creativity. It fills us with hope and joy as it restores our feelings of self worth

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

The River Flows: Cat’s Angel Message for January 28, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

The River Flows: Cat’s Angel Message for January 28, 2020

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


The River of Life flows – and all else is our drama. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


128:  Drama, it’s everywhere. Today the Universe is gently reminding us that when we get caught up in everyday dramas we lose our focus and our momentum. Let yourself rise above these distractions and direct your energy into creating new opportunities and opening new doors. To take advantage of these blessings we must be willing to let go of old habits and thought patterns. Both of which can be centered around the dramas (direct and indirectly) taking place in our lives. Allow your inner wisdom to guide you as it will keep you from getting sidetracked. Remember to stay flexible because when one door opens another will close. This initiates and activates growth and opportunity. Remember, the angels will not do this for you and you must do your part to make things happen. The combination of thoughts, actions, and energies will all play a major role in our overall success and the key is in maintaining focus and keeping an optimistic outlook to make things flow.


Today’s Spiritual Guides include:

Archangel Michael is the go-to guy for protection. His clear, powerful energy acts as a shield that helps to buffer energies directed at us. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction.

The Ascended Master Sanat Kumara helps us find the energy we need to keep going and rise above negative experiences and thought patterns

The Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting yourself from the negative energy of others. She says: ” Personal boundaries are important to your well being. It is sometimes best to walk away. I can help you to step back and give you the self assurance to do what is in your best interest.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Aventurine teaches us how to give and receive gracefully. Both are necessary for healthy relationships with self and others and it allows the Universe to care for you. Aventurine also helps to dispel the anger and irritation that sometimes arise when we are stuck in the “what I lack” mind loop.

Lepidolite helps us to focus on the important things. It filters out distractions and obsessive thinking as it soothes and heals stress, reminding us to just breathe.

Rose Quartz today to bring inner peace and harmony. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. It helps to promotes the softer, move loving view that we need to embrace gratitude, it soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. It works with the heart chakra to gently wash away negative feelings that we harbor against ourselves and lifts the emotions to promote joy and peace. It opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point 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!

EarthSky News: Latest sunsets follow summer solstice

For people living around 40 degrees north latitude, the latest sunset of the year happens on or near June 27. And in the Southern Hemisphere, at 40 degrees south latitude, it’s the year’s latest sunrise that happens around now. That’s in spite of the fact that the Northern Hemisphere’s longest (or Southern Hemisphere’s shortest) day of the year fell on the June 21st solstice.

Inner Journey:

DIRECT YOUR EVOLUTION

“Consciousness is the basis of all life and the field of all possibilities. Its nature is to expand and unfold its full potential. The impulse to evolve is thus inherent in the very nature of life.”
— Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Unlike other species, human beings can monitor our own evolutionary process. Better yet, we have the awareness and power to design our evolutionary path.

As creators, we are not limited to evolving through tiny, incremental steps. With our potent imaginations, we can design and manifest dramatic, profound change. How remarkable! What an awesome responsibility. What fun!

Our challenge is to break free of our present concept of reality to create brand new dreams that will bring the ideal to life.

“There is only one thing more powerful than all the armies of the world, that is an idea whose time has come.”
— Victor Hugo

“We lie in the lap of immense intelligence.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Colors

Of all colors, brown is the most satisfying. It is the deep, fertile tint of the earth itself; it lies hidden beneath every field and garden; it is the garment of multitudes of earth’s children, from the mouse to the eagle.”

-Mary Webb, The Spring of Joy, 1917

Brown isn’t one of the colors in the rainbow- and yet, could you imagine a world without it? To me, brown represents nature – tree trunks, dirt, things that are real. And chocolate! No, I couldn’t imagine a world without it…

Spirituality & Health: 20 Affirmations for When We’ve Messed Up

Being human is like nail polish. What I mean is, no matter how many coats of polish I use on my fingernails, less than 24 hours later, they start to chip. They are still pretty, still gold and shiny—but they are flawed, and everyone can see it. Wise sages assure us that though we are chipped, we are still loved by the Divine, and also still worthy of self-love. Believing in that worthiness, though, is harder after a major blunder. To give a PG version of a Mumford & Sons’ lyric, “I really mucked it up this time. Didn’t I, my dear?” What, then, do we do after we really muck things up? After we’ve had too much to drink, or lost our temper, or stood someone up, or been rude, or any of the other million ways we behave when we are so not being our higher selves? Here are some affirmations for a chipped-feeling soul.

EarthSky News:  Moon, Venus, Jupiter August 14 to 16

After sunset on these mid-August evenings, look westward to see three brilliant worlds – the moon, Venus and Jupiter – beautifying the evening twilight. Each successive evening, after sunset, watch for the waxing crescent moon to move away from Venus and closer to Jupiter. This daily eastward movement of the moon relative to the background stars and planets of the zodiac is due to the moon’s orbital motion around Earth.

Patheos-Pagan: We Have Different Definitions of Magic and Witchcraft, And That’s Okay

I’ve been practicing my own version of magic and witchcraft for decades. Lately, I realized that there are some people who want to police witchcraft, with arbitrary rules and hard definitions. They like to tell people there’s only one way to be a witch or sorcerer, and only one right way to work magic. They believe they’re on the right side, which is usually a traditional or historical pagan path, and they tell anyone who doesn’t fit into that hard mold that they’re wrong.

Inner Journey: 

USE YOUR POWER TO CREATE

“I am a child of God. I came from the womb of creation.”
— Tao Te Ching

Our grand business in life is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.”
— Thomas Carlyle

We each play a role in the bigger game of life. In this bigger picture, life plays with energy and matter to expand, create, express and evolve. It explores new possibilities, realizes them and then reaches for even more. Life continually transforms what is into something brand new.

We choose how actively we take part in this cosmic dance. We can become mere spectators to life if we get stuck in old ideas that have lost their energy for us.

How much passion do you feel for your goals? Are you still being creative in how you work with them?

“Embrace fully your capacity to create, to think in unlimited ways, and to pursue everything that you have been wanting. Be flexible, open and willing to let the new come to you. “This can be the most joyous, prosperous, and creative time of your life.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

Success

“If a man wants his dreams to come true, he must wake up.” -Anonymous

Dreams might come to us, but success is something we must go after. Inspiration strikes, then it’s up to us to take action. We could buy all the great works of literature, but it we don’t actually read them, what is the point? If we feel that success is eluding us, then now is the time to evaluate our activities.

We live in a time where people are feeling unsatisfied by their condition, and even more so in the developed world. Thus, a lot of people who have an interest in spirituality tend to have the very specific goal of changing their life for the better. The process is now referred to as “spiritual awakening”, but people don’t always agree on how the process itself works and on what the symptoms of that “spiritual awakening” actually are. This is what this article will be all about.

Inner Journey:

DO YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF?

“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
— Orison Swett Marden

What do you believe about yourself?

If you are experiencing a lack of something in your life, chances are that you hold a belief in your subconscious that says you aren’t worthy of having that quality. Write in your journal the answer to these questions for yourself:
•Where are you not good enough, not worthy enough?
•How willing are you to receive?

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
— e. e. cummings

Enthusiasm

“No one keeps up his enthusiasm automatically. Enthusiasm must be nourished with new actions, new aspirations, new efforts, new vision. Compete with yourself; set your teeth and dive into the job of breaking your own record. It is one’s own fault if his enthusiasm is gone; he has failed to feed it.”

-Papyrus

Knowing that enthusiasm fuels our fire and keeps us going, it is up to us to maintain the enthusiasm necessary to keep ourselves on track. Enthusiasm can be found, and it can be created. So if you can’t find it, make it!

MBG: What Your Chiron Sign Reveals About Your Greatest Strengths & Weakness

According to Greek mythology, Chiron was a healer, philosopher, and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself. Chiron’s placement in your natal chart can reveal a core wound that may take a lifetime to work through. But don’t distress: Our Chiron placement is also our secret power! As we grapple with pain, we gain wisdom that we can pass on to others like a magical salve. In fact, the symbol for Chiron is shaped like a key since unlocking his powers opens up a portal to deep, inner peace.

A Bountiful Moment

Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don’t want. ~Napoleon Hill

Daily Thought: Remember to always search and focus on the positive side to any situation you are encountering. Remember there is always a positive side. It is natural in the moments of a huge upset all you can see is the downside. But never forget there are two side to everything we encounter. It just depends on what you put your attention to.

Daily Practice:Keep your mind focused on the benefits you are striving to achieve with every step you make forward. Do not let little setbacks distract you from focusing on what you set to achieve. Visualize what the end goal is. Re-evaluate your steps and re-implement some of them if you need to. But make sure you are focusing on what you want not on what is distracting you from achieving it.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

 Coffey Talk: Lucky Ladybug

Many people shriek at the site of a bug, but the ladybug evokes smiles. This pretty little red and black creature is a symbol that we often see in the Spring and Summer printed on clothes and linens along with other garden images.

The ladybird or ladybug as we’ve known to call them, is actually a member of the beetle family. It is mentioned in numerous poems and nursery rhymes and is a favorite among children because of this. The ladybird has always been dedicated to the goddesses is said to be named for the Virgin Mary. The ladybird is a symbol of good luck of prosperity and also of fertility since it is a prolific insect. One tale says that if a ladybird lands in a female’s hand, she will be married within a year.

The ladybird is also a symbol of protection. There is a story that took place in the Middle Ages where aphids and other pests were ruining the crops. In desperation, the farmers were praying to the Virgin Mary for help. Shortly afterwards, ladybirds appeared and decimated the aphids. This is symbolic of the power of the beautiful beetle and the strength that could be found in the little things. The whole is more than the sum of the parts.

The ladybird is able to protect itself from larger predators because it gives off a scent that is so strong and repellent to its attackers. It is self-reliant. The number of spots on its back is symbolic as well. The spots are said to be a marker of the time it will take for something good to happen.

EarthSky News: Bright star Vega on May evenings

Tonight, look for the star Vega, the fifth brightest star in the sky. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you’ll find this beautiful bluish star easily, simply by looking northeastward at mid-evening in May.

Try it! Just look northeast in mid-evening in May. You’ll see this bright bluish star shining above that horizon. From far south in the Southern Hemisphere, you can’t see this star until late at night in May because Vega is located so far north on the sky’s dome. Vega will reach its high point for the night around 3 to 4 hours after midnight, at which time people in the Southern Hemisphere can see this star in the northern sky. As seen from mid-northern latitudes, the star shines high overhead at this early morning hour.

Patheos-Pagan: What is part of the Lore ?

The Lore of a group develops ideologically – we choose which things to add and to emphasize based on what we already believe and do rather than by an unbiased consideration of these new items. This isn’t always a bad thing because it results in a deeper and more complex exploration of issues and ideas, unless the group or individual does not realize that is what they are doing and mistakes their biases for objectivity.

Inner Journey:

WE PROJECT OUR STRENGTHS

“Any situation that you find yourself in, is an outward reflection of your inner state of beingness.”
— El Morya

We have discussed that OUR WORLD MIRRORS WHO WE ARE BACK TO US. When we get upset by something outside of us, our reaction shows us that we have an inner wound to be healed.

Just as we can be unconscious of our wounds, we can also be unconscious of our strengths. If you are really drawn to the positive qualities in another person, you are being invited to own those same qualities in yourself.

“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.”
— Shakti Gawain

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“Nonbeing can never be;

Both these statements are obvious
To those who have seen the truth.”

-The Bhagavad Gita

So, just where do we go to see “the truth?” If there were a cruise to get there I’ll bet we’d all sign up! But we don’t have to get on a luxury ship to see the Truth. We don’t have to go anywhere. We just need to go within. It’s all there. All the answers we seek. All the miracles we chase. Look within. You’ll see.

Beliefnet: 5 Things the Happiest Couples Do For Each Other Without Being Asked 

Unhappy couples want to become happy couples, and happy couples want to stay happy. The best way to achieve or continue that state of happiness, however, is debatable. Some people swear that the best way to keep your beau happy is to go do things together. Shared experiences act to reinforce your bond with your partner.

MBG: How To Teach Kids To Love Nature In A Tech-Obsessed World

We know that nature serves as a calming force when we’re stressed or anxious, and its effects on children may be even more profound.

“Nature has the power to make children happier, healthier, and smarter,” Sarah Milligan-Toffler, executive director of the Children & Nature Network, explained during the Biophilic Leadership Summit, a gathering of dozens of thought leaders in nature-inspired design held this April.

A Bountiful Moment

If you know what you want you can find a way to get it. Napoleon Hill

Daily Thought: When you are setting goals make sure you are clear and specific in what you are looking to achieve. By stating that you want to be happy, have more money, be independent are all illusive general goals. Define and be specific about what those general terms mean. Will you be happy if you enter into a healthy relationship? If you make an additional $10,000? Or if you can buy a car? If you make your intentions clear and specific you will achieve them.

Daily Practice: Think of the goals you have set to achieve. Do they need to be made clearer? Think of every single detail about the end goal. Colors, shapes, how you would interact with the goal. What does your end goal look like? The more you can see what you are trying to achieve the better ability your mind has to develop and act on ways to create it. Don’t be afraid to dream big and never give up!

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Elephant Journal: The Sensitive Folks’ Guide to Saturn & Pluto Retrograde

The word “hacking” is popular these days, so consider this a hack for sensitive people dealing with where the Earth is situated relative to Saturn and Pluto.
Note: to be clear, it’s not that the position of the Earth “causes” anything, or that these planets and their positions rain a cascade of “energy” down on us. It’s that those who study astrology can read where they are (relative to each other, because that is key to a retrograde) and what that means according to countless years of people witnessing patterns in human development

Patheos-Pagan: When The Moon Is Not Creative

I have as yet to encounter a discourse about the Moon card in the Tarot that will not start with ‘creativity’ as one of the moon’s primary ‘meanings’.

I have a problem with this, especially when, in dynamic reading consultations that are not informed by the ‘little white book’, the Moon hardly ever points to a type of creativity that’s also constrained, and hence useful.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/cartomancer/2018/05/04/when-the-moon-is-not-creative/

Inner Journey:
FEELING TRAPPED? SLOW DOWN!

“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.”
— Natalie Goldberg

Feeling trapped in some way? Give yourself space. Space to do nothing but breathe. To intentionally relax those tight muscles. To just for a few precious minutes, let it all go.

The world will keep turning if you tune out for a short while. And your world will begin to recover its balance.

“It’s important to be heroic, ambitious, productive, efficient, creative, and progressive, but these qualities don’t necessarily nurture soul. The soul has different concerns, of equal value: downtime for reflection, conversation, and reverie; beauty that is captivating and pleasuring; relatedness to the environs and to people; and any animal’s rhythm of rest and activity.”
— Thomas Moore
