Thought For The Day: August 13, 2020 “Choices For The Future”

Happy Thursday,

The things we do today can have an impact on our future. As always we have choices. Do we consciously create our future or do we just muddle through our days and hope for the best? Although we have no way of knowing what the future holds we can use our power as a creator to help shape it to meet our goals and desires. By making the right choices we can move forward with confidence!

Believing In Your Dreams: Cat’s Angel Message for May 1, 2020

May Theme: This month brings changes and growth into your life.  Be willing to embrace them and allow things to happen naturally as this will help us focus on bigger and better things!


The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. – Eleanor Roosevelt


51:  Even though we don’t know exactly what the future holds for us we can be assured that things will get better and that good things are coming our way. As we start the new month we are being asked to focus our thoughts and positive intentions on our dreams and goals. Don’t spend your energy worrying about the “how to’s” and “what if’s” as these details will naturally fall into place when the time is right. Fear of the future and of change is normal, however, the key lies in how we perceive the changes that lie ahead. If we acknowledge our fears and do our best to let them go (don’t struggle, don’t force) we can fill that space with positive intent and a sense of adventure. Visualize yourself as an explorer heading out into the uncharted territory of personal growth. What does the future hold? Who knows…..but man it’s going to be good!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Chamuel assists in all areas of our path. He can help you find the direction and guidance that you will need to move forward on this journey of self-discovery. If you feel like you have wandered off your path and are having trouble finding your way back he can help you get your bearings.

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 and maybes

The Welsh Goddess Cerridwen uses her cauldron “Amen” to help provide us with knowledge, wisdom, personal rebirth and inspiration. remember that change brings us the transformation that we need. She reminds us “The opportunity for your own transformation lies before you. It provides you the chance to spread your wings and grow. Look into my sacred cauldron and see the vision of your path unfolding before you.”


Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Azurite increases our ability to receive spiritual guidance and helps us to see through illusions so that we can see our path clearly. It helps to develop our intuitive skills as it expands the mind to promote clear thinking, understanding, and new perspectives.

Bloodstone gives us the ability to adapt to the changes that are taking place more easily. It strengthens our intuition and promotes good decision making.

Metamorphosis Quartz helps to bring about change and personal transformation.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Taking Every Step: Cat’s Angel Message for November 2, 2019

daily Angel Message sms

Taking Every Step: Cat’s Angel Message for November 2, 2019

November’s Theme:  Positive opens and draws, Negative closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


Standing in the inspiring vision of my future, I boldly take every step – large and small – with courage and intent. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


112:  Today the Universe is opening a window so that we may look ahead into our own future. Like change, the future can be a scary thing. However, once again we are reminded that truth lies in our perspective and how we choose to look at things. As you peek into the future ask yourself “Is where I am right now where I want to be in the future?”/ ” Am I allowing myself to move forward or am I letting fear and indecision dictate my thoughts and actions?” Remember to be honest with yourself. As we enter the new month take some time to plant a few positive thought seeds, this will pave the way for the future that we desire both for ourselves and our loved ones. Remember to stay focused on your goals and aspirations as you craft the future that you deserve. Your powers of manifestation are strong right now so use them to set things in motion!


Archangel Jeremiel helps us to make positive life choices. He understands that it’s hard for us to let go of people and situations even though they are holding us back or causing us unintended stress, drama or harm. Jeremiel can help ease these transitions and reminds us that concern about change is normal. Ask him to help you see your path clearly and to assist you in taking the necessary steps to embrace your future.

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 Greek Goddess Artemis helps us to hone our intuitive skills so that we get the information we need without the unnecessary backwash. She teaches us how to trust in ourselves and honor our own wisdom. By following our inner guidance system we are setting ourselves on the path of authenticity and personal truth. Allow yourself to be a “huntress” like Artemis and track down your inner power. She tells us, “All the skills and knowledge you need for success lives within you. Your inner wisdom is a powerful thing and you know in your heart when something is good and right.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Chiastolite (aka Cross Stone or Andalusite) promotes the creative problem solving process. It enables us to release things that are no longer relevant to our current path and dispels any guilt we may have when we leave things behind. It helps us to make the necessary changes and brings harmony to conflicts that arise when we blaze new trails that others were not expecting or able to control.

Blue-Green Chrysocolla helps make smooth transitions and helps us to accept change with serenity by inviting the energy of universal love into our personal experiences. It brings our inner strength and self awareness forward which keeps our energy balanced and our creative side active which allows us to handle change more effectively.

Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships that are necessary for the manifestation process and our personal evolution.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Adjusting our Steps: Cat’s Angel Message for March 31, 2019

Adjusting our Steps: Cat’s Angel Message for March 31, 2019 

March Theme: This month carries the energy of the Ascended Masters. We will be working to improve self love, inner peace and overall clarity. These things will help on the path to manifesting our dreams and goals.


When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. – Confucius


331:  It’s normal for us to think about the future and what it holds for us. Too often though we find ourselves getting caught in the “whirlpool of worry” . We spin round and round agonizing over what “might ” happen. ( What if?- Should I?- I want to…. but…) Thinking about and planning for the future is a good thing, however excessive worrying about it is counter productive. It saps our resources and energy that we could be investing in something else. Today is the last day of March which  means the end of a cycle. Your future is an adventure so be bold and take that first step (even if it’s a small one). Release your worries to the Universe and avoid the “whirlpool” by taking things a day at time and let things fall into place!


Archangel Zadkiel helps us to avoid the whirlpool of worry. He boosts our faith and fills our hearts with peace and calm. He also helps us to remember information that will help us on this grand adventure. The Ascended Master El Morya helps us to stay grounded in the present and shows us how to stick to our commitment to keep growing and moving forward and the Greek goddess Nike tells us “Do not be afraid to acknowledge the amazing things you have done but don’t rest to long on your laurels. Remember that your power comes through movement and momentum is lost through inactivity. Keep moving and you will be victorious!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following:  Ametrine which helps us to grow while encouraging us to explore all possibilities and find the creative solutions we need to make the most of the information we are given. Brecciated Jasper to keep us grounded and promote mental clarity. And gentle Moss Agate promotes new beginnings and helps us to release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward.

No Regrets or Fears: Cat’s Angel Message for May 1, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. 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!


  Gain happiness by living in the present – without regret for the past or fear of the future. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Welcome to May and Happy Beltane!

51:  Even though we don’t know exactly what the future holds for us be assured that good things are coming. As we start the new month we are being asked to focus our thoughts and positive intentions on our dreams and goals. Don’t spend your energy worrying about the “how to’s” and “what if’s” as these details will naturally fall into place when the time is right.  Fear of the future and of change is normal , however the key lies in how you perceive the changes ahead. If we acknowledge our fears and do our best to let them go we can fill that space with positive intent and a sense of adventure. Visualize yourself as an explorer heading out into the uncharted territory of personal growth. What does the future hold? Who knows…..but man it’s going to be good!


Our helpers for today include Archangel Michael who blesses us with the courage to move forward, and the Egyptian Goddess Hathor. Ask Hathor for her assistance when you wonder “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.


The following Sacred Stones will help with change. Metamorphosis Quartz helps to bring about change and personal transformation while earthy Mookaite helps us to embrace new experiences and teaches us the flexible thinking that is necessary to navigate change. Chrysocolla promotes smooth transitions between the new and old. Bloodstone gives us the ability to adapt to the changes taking place easily and Eudialyte helps to ease any discomfort associated with change.

Mind Body Green: The Truth About Tattoos & Your Immune System

Whether you have tattoos or not, it’s fascinating to consider that they’ve been a practice of humankind for thousands of years despite the fact that we still know so little about how they actually work. Ink is injected through the skin, but given rapid cell turnover rates, the movement of fluids within our bodies, and our fierce immune systems, how the ink remains in one place is enigmatic.

OM Times: Boost Your Intuition by Managing Your Energy Boundaries

We are all intuitives: intuition is an innate skill we are all born with. The problem is we don’t know how to use it, so we�re less than we could be, at home and at work. We can change that by learning to manage our energy boundaries.

Not what you thought, right? You’re thinking we learn intuition by working on it, but that’s really the second step. The first step is to understand energy and our energy bodies.

A Bountiful Moment:

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Daily Thought

Do not get stuck in reminiscing about what could have been, or what should have been. It creates a poor self-image and anxiety about what will happen next. Think about your future with a positive perspective. Know that what you see as a good, great or a valued next action will bring you your greatest joy.

Daily Practice

Keep moving throughout your day by taking the next step toward tomorrow’s end goal. Do one thing that you never thought would be possible. Work on bringing to reality what you see in your dreams one step and one task at a time.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Cycles in Time: The Myth of the Year

A Pagan myth of Christian origins, of pagan inception As Neopaganism matures, the unveiling of several layers of history and mythologising are gradually peeled away, revealing some fascinating and telling truths. Much of the pagan myths we live with today tend to be borne out of the romanticising of the Victorian era, and unfortunately reflect much of the fantasising and speculation that accompanied it. However, through the decades of living this paganism, certain truths have become regularised within the structures

Inner Journey

WHAT’S IMPORTANT?

“Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going. Rather than always focusing on what’s urgent, learn to focus on what is really important.”
— Stephen Covey

Time management is all about making decisions. At each step of the way, we want to choose activities that best support what we want to do with our lives. To do this, we need to be clear about our short and long-term goals.

Here’s a general question to ask yourself often: “Is this the best use of my time in terms of meeting my goals?” Sometimes, of course, we don’t have any choice. But ask yourself honestly, “Could I take more control if I really wanted to?” Often, we play the victim because we don’t want to make the effort to change our behaviour.

“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.'”
— Lao-Tzu

A Note from the Universe

You know what’s kind of wild? At this very crossroads of time and space, more than ever before, there are so many billions of people yearning to awaken, study, and understand the truth about themselves, their divinity, and the magic.

You know what else is kind of wild? Just as this need arose, simultaneously, all over the world, there have appeared the greatest teachers, though in far smaller numbers. Those who are actually living these truths, leading with the example of their lives, and healing those in need through simple conversation.

Want to know what’s even more unbelievable? That you sometimes consider yourself more of the student.

All bow,

The Universe

Today’s Recipe: Walnut and Pomegranate Chicken Stew (Fesenjoon)

I’ve promised my family’s recipe for this delightful, rich stew to so many people. I thought I’d direct them here to ThriftyFun (because you will want to know how to make this, too). There really isn’t anything like Fesenjoon. It is is an ancient Persian dish that has very forward-thinking textures and flavours. The pomegranate makes it sweet and sour, while the walnut makes it rich and smooth. It’s made to go with Basmati rice. Please give this a try!

Desire

“Desire is the very essence of man.” – Benedict De Spinoza, Ethics

So, you have a desire… now what do you do with it? Of course, you want to fulfill it! We are busy fulfilling our desires everyday, and sometimes so easily that we aren’t even aware of what we are doing.

Let’s look at the mechanics of desire fulfillment:
1. Recognize the desire.
2. Evaluate the desire – do you REALLY want it?
3. Create an intention to fulfill the desire.
4. Release the desire to the universe – state your intention clearly.
5. Give up any attachment to the outcome… anything can happen, and
it’s usually better than we ever could have anticipated.
6. Let the universe handle the details – don’t try to control or
manipulate how things happen.
7. Express gratitude!

-Lissa Coffey
