Spirit Library: Untangle Yourself

a message from Kate Spreckley

Currently humanity exists within a healing crisis which is urging us to take responsibility for the unsustainable ways of living and being we continue to practice, and which uphold and further this crisis. As the energy continues shift and expand our consciousness we are being driven to develop a new relationship with the physical aspect of our existence and thus further integrate our soul.

Inner Journey:

TIME FOR STILLNESS

“We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it’s all about.”
— Joseph Campbell

The sages all say that the path to liberation is found in entering the stillness within. To experience that stillness, we need to be willing to regularly stop the activity for a while.

How do we do this in a busy life? We set our priorities. Perhaps it means giving up a TV program or using a coffee break to grab a few moments of solitude. Perhaps we have to ask our partner, relative or neighbour to give us 30 minutes of time away from the kids. If we really want something, we can make it happen.

“Learn to pause… or nothing worthwhile will catch up to you.”
— Doug King

Evolution

“The whole process of evolution, for the Spirit, is an awakening to the truths, and the means of implementation of those truths, that are eternally present in itself.”

-N. Sri Ram (1889- ?)

Evolution in this case means growth, and especially spiritual growth. In the definition above, evolution seems to be a natural process – an “awakening.” Whether we wake up gradually, with the light of dawn, or suddenly, with some kind of an alarm, we do wake up. It is in the awakened state that we are productive. And in the spiritually awakened state the infinite possibilities of the universe are as much a reality to us as the start of a new day.

Energy & Awareness: Cat’s Angel Message for March 5, 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.


Choose in ways that support your dreams. – Mary Anne Radmacher


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 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 Spiritual Helpers include:

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.

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 set aside things we have no control over.

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:

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.
( Calcite can also be used to promote the balance of your chakras. When our chakras are in balance it’s easier to live the attitude of gratitude.)

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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

“In the first grade, I already know the pattern of my life. I didn’t know the living of it, but I knew the line…. From the first day in school until the day I graduated, everyone gave me one hundred plus in art. Well, where do you go in life? You go to the place where you got one hundred plus.”

-Louise Nevelson, 1976

What usually happens, is that we are really good at doing what we love to do – so we do it more often and become even better at it! Maybe we love doing it because we’re good at it, or the other way around, but it doesn’t matter. The idea is to find our “thing,” whatever that happens to be, and do it!

Cheers to the New Year: Cat’s Angel Message for January 1, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Cheers to the New Year: Cat’s Angel Message for January 1, 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.


Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. – Oprah Winfrey


11: Happy New Year! The new year offers us the chance to grow on personal and spiritual levels. While taking care of yourself is important we are being reminded that encouraging and cultivating our strengths is equally important. Maintaining your balance will be the key to unlocking the potential that will turn your dreams into reality. The Universe knows there is much we want to do with our lives and is reminding us to stand strong and follow the guidance that we receive. Remember that attitude is everything and what you send out will come back so take the January Theme to heart and take action when you need to. This will help feed the roots of the new growth we are striving for. Get ready for the new blessings that this new cycle has in store!


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 Buddha helps us to find our “Attitude of Gratitude”.By acknowledging what we have to be grateful for we are filled with joy and inner peace which encourages positive flow. He also reminds us of the important balance between giving and receiving. When we are balanced we find the patience and inner peace we need to go with the flow and can help us embrace the “Tiny Miracles” in our lives as well.

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 reminds us to “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 include:

Pietersite (Tempest stone) helps us to work through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens our intuitive connection and creates a link to a loving level of guidance. It also helps us see the truth and strengthen our will while increasing our focus of where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm

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 make the most of our life experiences.
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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

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!

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.

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.

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.”

It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence.

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.

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.
