Today’s Message: It’s All About Patience

612: Our prayers and request often resemble a puzzle that can’t be completed until all the pieces are in place. This is called Divine timing. Human beings are an impatient bunch and have been conditioned to expect everything to happen immediately. However, forcing something to happen too quickly usually means that we are gifted a few bites and miss out on enjoying the “whole enchilada” due to our own impatience. Today we are being reminded that our dreams do not truly manifest until the Universe knows that we are ready to handle them. We can help divine timing by staying focused on our goals, having faith in the Universe and ourselves, and by grabbing the opportunities that do present themselves to build a firm foundation to support our dreams. By building a strong foundation we ensure our success. Remember that patience is the key to all manifestation and a positive attitude helps to open the doors and pathways you need to move forward!

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Sandalphon hears all requests and makes sure that they get to the Angel or Ascended Master who is best able to handle them. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music!). Sandalphon also provides us with an emotional boost of courage. This is important as it helps us to make bold decisions that will help us on our path.

The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision-making needed to make things happen.

The Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to find the answer to the question “How shall I live my life?” She tells us that every moment gives us opportunities for growth. ” When you are filled with indecision you move away from yourself and your power as a creator. Indecision silences you ability to hear your own inner wisdom. If you need my help just ask and I will shower you with energy that will tip the scales in the direction of what you desire.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Larimar helps to remove self-imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self-sabotaging behavior by bringing out the best in us. It helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession with material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that we manifest what we really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

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.

Tiger’s Eye (Gold) helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions.

Today’s Message: Spiritual Nudges

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.

Today’s Spirit 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 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 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:

Cavansite. This stone helps to guide us through major life changes as well as help 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 spiritual growth. Cavansite helps to promote new ideas and can be used in conjunction with the Third Eye or brow chakra.

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.

Ulexite (TV stone). This clear stone helps to burn away mental fog and promotes clarity of vision and thinking. It can be used during meditation and to promote relaxation

Today’s Message: Healing Self First

1219: Spirituality and our own innate healing abilities create the groundwork for today’s message. The Universe is gently reminding us that we are qualified to help and heal both ourselves and others. However, this begins with you and you must have the motivation and willingness to start the process and to keep it going. The important thing about self-healing is to keep in mind that we are always a work in progress and that healing the self is never a one time thing. If you are working with others the key lies in listening and remembering that we are not here to FIX them. The truth is that if someone has a problem they are not usually looking for you to fix it they simply need to talk it out. Allowing your spiritual nature to come forward as you perform the simple act of giving someone your undivided attention and really hearing them (even if you can’t do much else) is extremely helpful. Within each of us resides the divine power that enables us to heal. Don’t be stingy about helping others or yourself and the benefits will return tenfold.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal ourselves and our lives and regain our self-confidence and faith. This opens our spiritual eyes so that we may see what we have and how blessed we truly are as it teaches us how to make room for new things through the clearing out process. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude.

The Ascended Master Mother Mary provides us with all forms of healing. She surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love as she imparts feelings of peace and safety as she gently heals the dark, hidden places within while showing us the path that leads to compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. She helps to fill our hearts with peace and love and helps everyone regardless of path or religion.

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:

Charoite is a stone of transformation. It helps to open our hearts to the concept of unconditional love and brings those energies forward. Charoite enhances our perception and helps to ground our spiritual nature into everyday reality and helps us to see ways we can be of service. This stone can be used to reduce stress and worry as it helps us to overcome fear.

Fuchsite helps us to understand our personal interactions with others, particularly in the areas of basic life concerns. It teaches self-worth and how to do what is necessary to get others moving in the right direction without doing everything for them.

Rose Quartz. This soft pink crystal is the ultimate nurturer of compassion and loving energy. It soothes the heart, mind, and spirit. It helps us to bring out the best part of ourselves so that we can help and heal not only ourselves but others as well

Today’s Message: A Delicate Balance

1218: This time of year can make it difficult to maintain the balance between giving and receiving. The key is in your ability to not overextend yourself in either direction. By acknowledging our boundaries we help to create and maintain this necessary balance. By staying open and positive about both areas as well we will find it easier to embody the attitude of gratitude and acknowledge the gifts and blessings that flow in and out of our lives. Remember that the Universe is meeting our needs and that we are safe and cared for. What you send out will come back and your spiritual nature will benefit you today by boosting our levels of faith and trust

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal ourselves and our lives and regain our self-confidence and faith. This opens our spiritual eyes so that we may see what we have and how blessed we truly are as it teaches us how to make room for new things through the clearing out process. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude.

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 Hindu Mother Goddess Durga teaches us how to create boundaries and maintain them as well as protecting ourselves from the negative or controlling 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.”

Today’s Sacred Stones 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.

Chalcedony that brings mind, body, spirit and emotions into harmony by calming fear, anger or self doubt. It also promotes good feeling towards self and others

 Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” it is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion by staying true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others. It helps us to live in the moment making it easier to snag the blessings given to us. It is also a soothing stone that calms emotions during times of change.

Today’s Message: Sitting With Our Spiritual Side

1217: Today the Universe is asking us to embrace and acknowledge our spiritual side. It’s our spirituality that essentially helps us to navigate our life path, and helps us to surround ourselves with optimistic energy even when the going gets rough. It’s also through our spirituality that our power as a creator comes into play. By believing in ourselves we can generate new opportunities for prosperity and abundance on all levels. Our spiritual side also enhances our strength and confidence which helps us to see the blessings, the tiny miracles, and magick moments headed our way as well as the ones that currently surround us. This is a good day to simply say thank you to the Universe, its helpers, and to yourself for being the amazing soul that you are

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

The Ascended Master, Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence  

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.

Invitations to Stillness: Japanese Gardens

“Every element in the Japanese garden from the shape of the pruned pine trees to the careful placement of stepping stones has intention and is specifically designed to cultivate nuanced awareness. The contrast between what is placed and what is left blank, brings to life a pictorial space that leaves room for our imagination. Symbolism and metaphor in the garden also offer powerful tools to help humans reconcile their own lives and relationships to both society and the larger forces of nature. The American garden scholar Kendall Brown argues that ‘The opportunity for direct engagement with nature is what makes all gardens compelling but, as Japanese gardens function so effectively as philosophical and physical microcosms, their power is even stronger.'” More in this lovely essay. { read more }

Inner Journey: IS YOUR EGO INVOLVED?

“There is no room for God in him who is full of himself.”
— Hasidic Saying

On the spiritual path, we must be diligent to discriminate whether we are acting from ego or from soul. If ego is in charge, what we do is self- referencing. At the deepest levels, we are motivated by our own self-interest. We’re looking out for ourselves more than for others.

Although soul works through individuals, its focus is on the needs of others and on service to humanity.

“Do not feed your ego and your problems, with your attention. … Slowly, surely, the ego will lose weight, until one fine day it will be nothing but a thin ghost of its former self. You will be able to see right through it, to the divine presence that shines in each of us.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“Why aren’t you happy? It’s because ninety-nine percent of everything you do, and think, and say, is for yourself — and there isn’t one.”
— Wu Wei Wu

You’re always heard.

But just so you know, any prayers, comments, or musings that end in question marks, like “Can I?” “May I?” or “Will you?” are usually answered in question marks, like “Maybe?” “Sometimes?” or “Depends?”

Whereas those that end in “Thank you!” “Hallejulah!” or “Hubba-hubba!” are immediately fast-tracked.

Self-Determination
“We make ourselves up as we go.”

-Kate Green, 1983


Determination of the self sounds to me like defining ourselves. Life is a canvas, and we are the artist. Life is a song, and we write the lyrics. Life is a computer, and we are the programmer! There are dozens of analogies, but the outcome is the same. We create our lives. We determine our own destiny. Life is a journey, and we’re in the driver’s seat! So where do you want to go?

Embrace Spirituality: Cat’s Angel Message for December 17, 2020

1217: Today the Universe is asking us to embrace and acknowledge our own spiritual side. It’s our spirituality that essentially helps us to navigate our life path, and helps us to surround ourselves with optimistic and positive energy even when the going gets rough. It’s also through our spirituality that our power as a creator comes into play. By believing in ourselves we can generate new opportunities for prosperity and abundance on all levels. Our spiritual side also enhances our strength and confidence which helps us to see the blessings, the tiny miracles and magick moments headed our way as well as the ones that currently surround us. This is a good day to simply say thank you to the Universe, it’s helpers and to yourself for being the amazing soul that you are!

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, Saint Padre Pio, keeps us on the path of spiritual and personal growth. As we continue to grow so do our abilities like intuition, compassion, and seeing through the eyes of love. His energy is strong and optimistic which helps to boost our faith and confidence.

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:

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.

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 spiritual growth. Cavansite helps to promote new ideas and can be used in conjunction with the Third Eye or brow chakra.

While Garnet is best known as a stone of protection it can benefit the use of our natural talents as well. It helps us to overcome any resistance we may have in using our gifts and promotes self-confidence. Garnet removes what no longer serves and mental self-sabotage. It promotes balance and clears and re-energizes the chakras.

Inner Journey: VALUING ALL WORK

“We honor life when we work. The type of work is not important: the fact of work is. All work feeds the soul if it is honest and done to the best of our abilities and if it brings joy to others.”
— Matthew Fox

What value do we unconsciously (or consciously) place on different kinds of work? How do we rank the status of different jobs? How much more do we value the big- paying jobs over others?

Just as we need to honour ourselves for doing what needs to be done, we can equally honour all others who look after life through their efforts, no matter what they may be. We can release judgment that assigns more importance to some occupations than others.

“Now in order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: They must be fit for it: they must not do too much of it: and they must have a sense of success in it — not a doubtful sense, suchas needs some testimony of others for its confirmation, but a sure sense, or rather knowledge, that so much work has been done well, and fruitfully done, whatever the world may say or think about it.”
— John Ruskin

A Note from the Universe

Actually while I don’t mean to burst your bubble, it’s pretty much just you who thinks you’re “awake” right now. You’re actually dreaming.

You see, we’re all still sitting on that little patch of grass, in utter paradise, under the ancient oak in your favorite meadow by the sea. And at this moment, you’re practicing your new in-body-experience technique as you doze in and out of trance.

You’re so cute,

Searching
“You never find yourself until you face the truth.”

-Pearl Bailey


Finding yourself. That’s what this search is really all about. That’s where all roads lead. Look within. Face the truth of your being – your love, your beauty, your wisdom, your peace. We are all that, and so much more

Daily Tarot: The Tower

Some days something blows up and there’s nothing you can do. It has nothing to do with you, actually; you just happen to be there. While today will probably be uneventful, you may feel emotionally vulnerable and find yourself imaging one worst case scenario after another. Consider these imaginings as drills or dress rehearsals and don’t let any of this unnerve you. You’re fine and will be fine no matter what.
