Spiritual Fire: Cat’s Angel Message for July 17, 2019

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


Love in its essence is spiritual fire. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca


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 is 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!


Archangel Zadkiel reminds us that change requires compassion, understanding and quite often the forgiveness of 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 just breathe and helps us to embrace compassion which makes room for new growth. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. He also helps us gain spiritual insight and teaches us that loving care is essential to navigating change. And 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.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Howlite helps us to formulate and achieve our ambitions and goals and helps us to communicate these things calmly and reasonably and helps us to find our patience. Howlite also creates a link to the universal realms and prepares the mind to receive guidance.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Balance Happens: Cat’s Angel Message for June 9, 2019

June’s Theme: Maintaining balance our in all areas of our lives. (material, spiritual, goals, dreams, self etc.) Create and invite good things through focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Balance happens when I invite it to happen with my intentional actions and my guided perspective. – Mary Anne Radmacher


69:  Our message and number today are reflections of this month’s theme. Balance is the key focus and it’s now time to test your skills. The goal is to create a balance between the material and the spiritual. While it’s important to spend time and energy in both areas, do your best to keep from going overboard or you’ll tip the scales.  Maintaining balance is essential to our overall well being. When we are out of balance life can be an uphill struggle so pay attention and make adjustments as needed. The angels are also reminding us that our needs are being met and maintaining balance makes this job easier for them. Release your worries and direct your focus where it needs to be today.


Archangel Uriel gives us essential information that we need when we need it. This assists us during the manifestation process by enhancing our problem solving skills so that we can make the decisions that are best for our current situations. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey helps us to release our troubles and offers clear guidance and motivation regarding our own self improvement. He also helps us gain spiritual insight and teaches us that loving care is essential to navigating change. And the Hindu goddess Kali oversees the ending of cycles and transformations. Kali is a powerful lady and her energy is like a powerful storm that clears away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings, and the courage and motivation we need to see things through. She says:  “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following: Gentle Rhodonite 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. Seraphinite clears the heart chakra and helps to open us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life, and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path and  Blue Green Obsidian to help balance the energy of body, mind and spirit.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

The Great Awareness: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

The Great Awareness: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. 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!


The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one. – M. Scott Peck


522:  Most of our work so far this month has been focused on personal change (mental and emotional). Today’s number however, will focus on changes to our spiritual outlook. Positive choices, life lessons,courage, faith, insight and Universal love are all key for today. It sounds like a lot but these things are what help shape our own unique brand of spirituality. When change arrives it brings many things including a change of perspective which flows into our being on all levels including the spiritual.

The Universe is reminding us not to ignore our spirituality. Embrace it by staying strong in faith and by remaining optimistic, as it is these things that help build a strong spiritual base from which all good things grow.


Archangel Jophiel reminds 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. She reminds us that slowing down activates our creative mind and makes these things easier to visualize and grasp as it enhances  and brings forward our spiritual nature.  The Ascended Master Padre Pio teaches us that we can heal by embracing our spirituality and he  guides us through periods of spiritual growth as well.The Celtic goddess Nematona teaches us that healing can be found through nature as she helps us replenish our energy. She says, ” I am the spirit of the sacred grove. I invite you to worship in my temple and feel the heartbeat of nature. This communion can heal a weary and battered soul and replenish your spirit with hope and divine peace.” 


Our Sacred Stone for today is Cavansite. This stone helps to guide us through major life changes as well as helping us learn from past experiences so that we don’t make the same mistakes/choices again. It also helps us to retain information that applies to our spiritual growth.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

EarthSky News: Moon and Venus grace eastern morning sky

Late April and early May 2019 present the moon and the planet Venus adorning the eastern sky before sunrise. From most places worldwide, these two brilliant worlds can be viewed at dawn if you’re blessed with clear skies and an unobstructed horizon. After all, the moon and Venus rank as the second-brightest and third-brightest celestial bodies, respectively, after the sun. Unfortunately for far-northern latitudes, like Alaska, viewing the moon and Venus will be extremely difficult because the moon and Venus rise about the same time as the sun at those latitude

Inner Journey:

TWO VIEWS

“… no matter what our difficulties may be, we recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream flowing below all surface troubles and that we are of one substance with that stream. The soul knows no difficulties.”
— James Thornton

Masters teach that we can experience two completely different states of reality at the same time — from the personality and from the soul.

Author Pema Chödron talks about being hungry, cold and tired but at that same time deeply content. Ram Dass speaks of how the emotional heart can be breaking while we recognize that all is unfolding perfectly.

Allowing our soul to be present with the discomforts of the personality shifts our experience of the discomforts.

“True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing in our lives.”
— Martia Nelson

Understanding

“Sometimes it proves the highest understanding not to understand.”

-Baltasar Gracian (1601-1658)

Some things seem beyond our understanding. Certain algebraic formulas, for example – or the mentality of terrorists. This is a complicated world we live in. And we may not understand all of it. But we can expand our faith to accept what understanding we do have, and to build on that. We can take what we know, and learn and grow from here.

Spirit Library: Claim Your Truth Now

This message is a lovely channel from Archangel Uriel.

It is time to claim your truth, to be in your own light and energy and the truth of your being. This is not an easy task because you have done this before, usually with terrible consequences. Claiming your truth means that you stand in your own light, no matter what others may feel or think about it or how they respond to you. The opposite of your truth is not a lie, it is denial and you must now choose to live in truth or to live in denial, to stand in the bright center of your light or in theits shadowy edges

Inner Journey:

THE 4 D’S OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH

“Promise Yourself … to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. …To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.”
— Drawn from the Optimist Creed of the Optimist International Club

Reflect on this pathway for meaningful growth:

DISCIPLINE – To create change in our lives, we need to consistently focus on what we want.

DETACHMENT – Practice the art of detached observation. Let go of automatic defenses and patterns.

DISCERNMENT – Seek to discern the lower from the higher. What is self-serving and what is soul-inspired? Discernment carries no judgment. There are no goods and bads. Remain as a detached witness.

DHARMA “This is an East Indian word meaning “living your unique purpose.” How do you find meaning and fulfillment in ways that are natural to you? How do you best serve and contribute to the world?

“If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.”
— Glenn Clark

Today’s Recipe: DIY Tea Astringent

Astringents are used to firm and tone the skin. They constrict the pores and create a protective layer of firm tissue to fight against natural elements. However, some astringents can be harsh due to their alcohol content, thus, drying the skin. So why not create your own astringent at home? Today’s recipe uses non-drying ingredients — witch hazel, lemon juice and, don’t be surprised – tea!

Effort

“Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.”

-Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869-1948)

Full effort is mindfulness. It’s being present in the moment, concentrating on the task at hand and not on the results. When we’re in that space where we’re putting in effort, doing our best, we lose track of time and experience the now. That’s a victory!

-Lissa Coffey

Perspective & Communication: Cat’s Angel Message for October 10, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

 

Perspective & Communication: Cat’s Angel Message for October 10, 2018 

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.


To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others. – Tony Robbins


1010:  Well today’s number certainly sums up this month’s theme. So do your best to stay focused and centered as this will help keep the lines of communication open and flowing. We are being asked to work on areas involving our spiritual journey and personal development. Remember that we are creating our reality and the key is to stay optimistic about the messages that you receive. Messages come in many forms, both divinely generated and through our own intuitive skills, so always be on the lookout for creative ideas and insights. The Universe is here to help you and the guidance it offers helps us to grow on all levels and each tidbit of information is a piece of the puzzle.


Archangel Zadkiel helps us to remember the  important information (like divine messages) and enhances our basic memory function as well. Vywamus is an Ascended Master of the new age. He helps us in all aspects of our Life Purpose through inspiration and discovering talents we have forgotten that we possess or through bringing new ones to our attention. And the Hawaiian goddess Pele tells us “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 the day is Ulexite (TV stone). This clear stone helps to burn away mental fog and promotes clarity of vision and thinking.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Although some have professed the death of all religions in the 21st century, the truth is that the world is becoming more and more religious and religiously diverse these days. As a matter of fact, I stumbled upon this article a few days ago. According to the Pew Research Center, if the actual trend continues, by 2050, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism will add many hundreds of millions of believers to their ranks, if we postulate that children will follow their parents’ religion, that is.

Also, look for the little dipper-shaped star cluster known as the Pleiades, aka the Seven Sisters.

Inner Journey:

BE, DO AND HAVE

“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you love to do, in order to have what you want.”
— Margaret Young

The formula for success is Be, Do, Have. If we seek abundance, we must be abundant in spirit. We can begin to cultivate spiritual wealth by opening our hearts in gratitude.

Start a gratitude journal today. Each evening, write down at least 5 things for which you are grateful. This simple tool will help you open your eyes to the abundance of your world right now.

“Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.”
— Estonian proverb

Did you know that whenever you say, “I think I’m onto something HUGE, I’m so excited, I love my life, I have total clarity…” it’s like hitting an “ON” button that throws countless supernatural, invisible mechanisms into action that gradually begin physically rearranging the props and events of your life so that they’ll soon yield something HUGE, generate excitement, inspire love, and provide clarity?

And that whenever you say, “I don’t know what to do, it’s all so hard, I hate my life, I don’t ever want to return to time and space…” it’s like hitting an “OFF” button.

Of course you did,

Today’s Recipe: Rich Shrimp Stock

My local seafood shop sells head-on shrimp for nearly half the price of the ones already cut. This is a plus for me because I love to use the heads, skins, and tails, along with vegetable scraps, to make my own rich shrimp stock. Not only is a homemade version more delicious, it’s also so much cheaper. Shrimp stock is full of glucosamine, which is essential for healthy joint health.

Soul

“The growth of the soul may be compared to the growth of a plant. In both cases, no new properties are imparted by the operation of external causes, but only the inward tendencies are called into action and clothed with strength.”

-George Ripley (1802-1880)

Oftentimes when we talk about spiritual growth we compare it with the growth of a plant – planting the seed, allowing it space and time to grow with its own innate intelligence. We use this example because we understand how the growth of a plant “works.” We’ve seen seedlings sprout, we’ve had potatoes take root in glasses of water in our fifth grade science classes. And we need this kind of illustration because spiritual growth is not something we necessarily “see.” It is an internal phenomenon, something we feel, something we experience, something that goes beyond words or pictures.
