Large or Small: Cat’s Angel Message for December 9, 2018 

December’s Theme: Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life. Taking action will aid in manifestation.


It’s the little things you do that can make a big difference. What are you attempting to accomplish? What little thing can you do today that will make you more effective? You are probably only one step away from greatness. – Bob Proctor


129:  Today’s number revolves around our “life mission” ( an area where you feel compelled to serve). While some people do big things in a big way most of us do small things in small ways. No matter which category you fall into both make a difference to the people around us. It’s really not how much you do but what you do that matters. Simply by helping just one person you are making a difference, it creates a chain reaction as people pass it on. Life missions vary just like paths do so never let someone else tell you your mission (or path is wrong). You know what you need to do, if it feels right go for it! If you need Divine clarification ask for it and be open to receiving an answer.


Archangel Michael helps us in all areas of our Life Purpose/Mission by providing direction, motivation and guidance. The Ascended Master Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha, helps us to find and share laughter and joy with those around us. And  the Celtic goddess Brigid teaches us how to express ourselves in a positive manner and how to bring our ideas to the world and give them life.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Angelite and Celestite which help us with angelic communication. You can also use a Life Path crystal (a long, thin, clear quartz crystal with one or more smooth sides) to access your Path.Mission, it teaches us to follow our soul not our ego.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: Social Media Really Does Cause Depression. Here Are 6 Ways To Make It A Healthier Habit

We’ve known for a while that social media use is linked to symptoms of depression and loneliness, primarily by causing FOMO-related anxiety (i.e., fear of missing out on experiences with your friends, or at least knowing what everybody’s up to) or by making us constantly compare our lives and bodies to those of random internet people.

Daily Good: K9s for Warriors: Together We Stand

Sometimes it’s not the human who rescues the dog, but the dog who rescues the human. K9s for Warriors, a program based out of Ponte Verda, Florida, was established in 2011 to help soldiers experiencing PTSD and other war trauma disabilities. The dogs are trained to be service dogs and address symptoms in their owners such as anxiety, isolation, depression, and nightmares, often serving in conjunction with traditional treatments like medication and psychotherapy. To date, the program has rescued more than 850 dogs and 440 military service members, with an astounding 99% program success rate. “Service dogs are prescriptions on four legs,” says owner Shari Duvall. Read on to learn more about the inspiring stories behind the soldiers and their canine warriors

MNN: 10 cultural variations on Thanksgiving

Harvest festivals around the globe

Thanksgiving is defined by oversized meals with family or close friends (not to mention football games, parades and other modern additions). Historians still debate the origin of American Thanksgiving, but the most common narrative attributes it to early North American pilgrims, who held feasts to celebrate successful harvests. The concept of celebrating agricultural success dates back much further than the 17th century. Ancient Greeks, South Asians, and Celts all marked harvest holidays.

EarthSky News: Leonids peak mornings are November 17 and 18

The famous Leonid meteor shower is expected to be at its best in the predawn hours on Saturday, November 17, and Sunday, November 18, 2018. We give the nod to Saturday, November 17, because there will be less moonlight to intrude on the show.

Patheos-Pagan: Of Light & Shadow: Anubis, God of the Modern Age

I can’t tell you exactly how old I was the first time I encountered Anubis, but I was rather young. I was likely around 5 years old, and it was a chilly, but pleasantly sunny autumn day. My grandfather and I were out on one of our nature walks, this time in a wooded area just a few miles outside of our small town in the Midwest.

Inner Journey:

SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY

“Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Racing through life is very stressful. If we stay in high gear too long, we lose our ability to shift down. And when we’re stressed, we can’t access happiness, appreciation, fun, compassion, generosity, awareness of beauty and other wonderful qualities.High stress also triggers negative emotions like frustration, impatience, anger and fear.

Life has so much to offer if we will slow down and truly experience it. We must always remember that we are the ones in control of the accelerator. We CAN choose to brake.

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast — you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”
— Eddie Cantor

To put a few “non-things” into a time, space, and material perspective, it’s as if all the love that now bathes the world comes from a heart 7 zillion times larger than your sun.

Your “guardian angel” is so gigantic, her halo would reach the moon.

And your ultimate happiness is so assured,  we’ve been celebrating your life since the day you were born.

Laughter

“A good laugh is sunshine in a house.” -William Makepeace Thackeray

Norman Cousins discovered personally, and wrote eloquently, about the healing power of laughter. Laughter is good medicine. When we laugh, we can’t help but feel good. We feel good around people who laugh, people who enjoy life and can express themselves so freely.

Here’s a little story I heard that might get you giggling:

A wealthy man dies and goes to Heaven. He brings with him all of his earthly belongings when he meets St. Peter at the gate. St. Peter says: “Oh, my… you know, you can’t bring any of that in here.” The man pleads his case, he worked so hard for everything and can’t bear to leave it all behind. Finally St. Peter agrees to discuss the situation with his boss, who says, “Fine, let him bring in just one suitcase.” The man is overjoyed! He goes through everything and loads up one of his largest bags and presents it to St. Peter for inspection. It is filled to the brim with solid gold bars. St. Peter looks at his quizzically and says: “You brought pavement?”

Daily Good: How to Break the Loop of Our Destructive Patterns

When we’re afraid, we often find ourselves caught up in habitual ways of responding that fail to bring us the relief we seek. “To keep repeating a baleful pattern without recognizing that we are caught in its loop is one of life’s greatest tragedies; to recognize it but feel helpless in breaking it is one of our greatest trials; to transcend the fear of uncertainty, which undergirds all such patterns of belief and behavior, is a supreme triumph.” In a beautiful response to Vincent Van Gogh’s 1884 letter to his brother on fear and risk-taking, novelist Nicole Krauss sheds light on how rather than being governed by our fears, we can recognize the opportunity to step outside of them and ultimately overcome them

Coffey Talk: Numerology of Number 4

As we continue our series on Vedic Numerology, today we take a look at the number 4.

Those born on day 4, 13, 22, or 31 in any month are ruled by the number 4, and by Rahu. Rahu is one of the two nodes of the moon, the other being Ketu. Rahu is the north node of the moon, it is active and works primarily on mental energy. Rahu can bring confusion and dissatisfaction. It can also great talent in the arts, painting, writing and editing. It can cause 4 people to be suspicious or secretive, and this can cause problems in their family life. They often have the ability to see the unseen. They make good spies and detectives.

Rahu has been described by astrologers as smoky. It has no shape on its own and is always changing, and when present it obscures the shape of what is nearby. Rahu gives 4 people intelligence, courage, and patience.

4 people are prone to lots of changes in their lives. They get used to this, and take it in stride. However, this tends to make them uncertain, so they often seek the advice of others. 4 people root for the underdog. This is probably because they often face opposition and can relate. They are flexible, easily adjusting themselves in social situations. They can be stubborn and unconventional, but they are also efficient and organized. They like to make a difference; they advocate for social and environmental reform, and they often go into politics. They are not afraid of facing opposition and can often be selfish. They need to take care not to isolate themselves or they could get depressed.

Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays are generally good days for 4 people. Blue, grey and khaki are favorable colors.

There is a saying that when 4’s appear, angels are near. 4 is all about safety, security and stability. When you see 4’s repeated it’s basically the universe saying to you “don’t worry, I’ve got you.”

Glen Campbell and Jack Nicholson were both born on April 22 – a 4 day in a 4 month!

MNN: Ancient Egyptian tomb turns out to be crawling with mummified cats

It’s no secret that ancient Egyptians had an abiding fondness for cats. Many gods were depicted with unmistakably feline features. And strict laws forbade anyone from harming a cat.
But there seems to have been a bit of a legal loophole for turning cats into mummies.

EarthSky News: Moon, Mars pair up November 14-16

These next several evenings – November 14, 15 and 16 – highlight the moon and Mars coming quite close together on the sky’s dome. Look first for the moon, and you can’t miss the red planet Mars, which shines more brilliantly than a 1st-magnitude star all month long. For us in North America, the moon will swing closest to Mars for the month on the evening of November 15

Patheos-Pagan: You Are Your Own Spiritual Authority

Witch, Pagan, Neo-Pagan, Wiccan, and so on. These are all labels, titles, words to allow us to fit ourselves into little boxes. They are also words that create an us vs. them mentality. “I am not a Wiccan.” “You shouldn’t capitalize neopagan.” And my ever favorite and constant argument, “Well, actually, that tradition you practice in is only XX years old.” We spend a lot of time telling other people what does or doesn’t make their practice legit. We waste a lot of energy ‘othering’ those whose practices aren’t in perfect alignment with our own.

Personally I’m rather tired of it.

Inner Journey:

QUESTION YOUR INTENTION

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else ….”
— Archibald Alexander

Why are you doing what you are doing?

Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Are you doing what you are doing for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons, or in honest service? Maybe you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose. This is a great way to become more conscious.

Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Note from the Universe

Do you know what tickles me?

Besides you.

For every single time-space manifestation, from catching a cold to the accumulation of massive personal wealth, a shifting of props and persons must be choreographed from here with mind-boggling precision. Taking into account not only all of your other thoughts, beliefs, and expectations as they change from moment to moment, but those of everyone else on the planet, so that not one of you, not one, is ever denied getting exactly what you think about.

And to answer the often unasked question, “Yes, you can still have it all, no matter what others in your life might think, say, or do.”

Talk about multi-tasking –

Today’s Recipe: Spicy Asian Watermelon Salad

Packed with nuts, avocados, tomatoes and watermelon, this dish is loaded with great textures. It’s also full of vitamins and healthy fats. I didn’t use an oil in the dressing because of the balance you get from the cashews and avocado. This savoury and spicy twist on a melon salad makes a great side for any meal. Give it a try!

Laughter

“Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I’ve had my share. But whatever happens to you, you have to keep a slightly comic attitude. In the final analysis, you have got not to forget to laugh.”

-Katharine Hepburn

Most of comedy is built on tragedy – the slip on the banana peel, the pie in the face, the big misunderstanding. And we laugh because we can relate – we’ve been there. In movies there can only be so much drama before we’re offered up some “comic relief.” Writers know that audiences need a break in their emotions or they just go numb. Yes, life is tragic, and life can also be hysterically funny. Have you ever had one of those things happen where you say: “We’re going to look back on this and laugh one day?” We all have. And you know what? That day does come when we laugh – and it feels good.

Thought For The Day: Oct. 4, 2018 “Completely Stupid”

 

Happy Thursday,

We all have that ONE friend that we can completely let go and be “completely stupid” with.  The healing power of humor and laughter allows us to clear our heads and put a new perspective on whats going on in our lives. Yes.. life can be serious but allow yourself to experience or share with another the power of just letting go.

Discover Your World: Cat’s Angel Message for June 19, 2018

Discover Your World: Cat’s Angel Message for June 19, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it. – The Buddha


619:  When we are stressed or worried about material matters we tend to place our lives on hold or even go full frontal freaky. While being aware is good, allowing these things to rule your life is not. The truth is that this approach only magnifies the stress and worry you are feeling and we can become overwhelmed by it. The other unfortunate side effect is that it blocks our power of manifestation. Today the angels are reminding us to continue the work we have been doing on upgrading our thought patterns. They are asking us to get moving and enjoy life. Take a walk or go for a hike, build something, make something or just embrace your creative side. There are always options that cost us very little or nothing but a little time. We are in charge of creating our own reality so take some time and acknowledge your blessings and you will realize just how “wealthy” you really are!


The Ascended Master Maitreya or the Laughing Buddha, helps us to find peace and harmony through laughter. He tells us that laughter is sacred and when the heart is alive with joy we are connected to the Infinite and filled with Nirvana-essence. Enjoy what life has to offer and enjoy the process!


Our Sacred Stone for today is Green Tourmaline. This stone (aka Verdelite) promotes joy of life, creativity, prosperity and abundance. It is also a healing stone that transforms negative energy into positive.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
