Thought For The Day: Sept. 18, 2020 “Both Sides”

Happy Friday,

We often get caught up the drama of others. We listen to their story and buy into it hook, line and sinker. This is what drama people count on. The thing to remember is that there is always another side to every story and between the 2 sides lies the truth which is a combination of the 2 sides. Don’t judge until you have heard both sides.

Wise Woman Herbal Ezine: Writing as Meditation
by Sara Deutsch, M.S.

To write is to listen–to awaken the inner ear to the stream of thought, imagery, feeling and experience continuously flowing within us. In writing meditation we listen, and record whatever enters our mind. Through relaxed awareness and absolute acceptance of all the inner voices–”wounded child”, “critic”, “parent”, “loving guide”–we delve deep into the mystery of our unknown self and learn to trust our inner process to heal and enlighten us.

A five minute time limit provides a gentle pressure that helps bypass the inner critic, responsible for writing blocks. Freeflow writing is a blind date with your infinite unknown self! You never know what will happen! Read more…..

If you miss the slender young moon at dusk on August 20, give it another try on August 21, 22 and 23. Look west, shortly after sunset. Read more…..

Inner Journey: GUILT

“When guilt rears its ugly head confront it, discuss it and let it go. The past is over. It is time to ask what can we do right, not what did we do wrong. Forgive yourself and move on.”
— Bernie S. Siegel

“I have made it a rule of my life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy . . . you can’t build on it; it’s only good for wallowing in.”
— Katherine Mansfield

“If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole.”
— Joan Borysenko

“Light burdens borne far become heavy.”
— French proverb

A Note from the Universe

Okay, for just five minutes forget the bucks. Forget your soulmate, too. Forget the new car, the “home run,” and being on Oprah. Forget your fears, your problems, and your pain. And during those five minutes, feel the feelings you most want to feel, for the rest of your life.

It might seem awkward, that’s okay. It might seem silly, too. And I can just about guarantee, at first, it’ll feel utterly futile… until your entire life begins to change.

If I were a beggar, I’d beg you. If I prayed in question marks, this is what I’d ask for. And if I could implore you to do anything, let this be it.

Because nothing else that you might ever do will have as profound an effect on your fortunes, friendships, and happiness; in navigating the illusions, manifesting what you want, and avoiding what you dread; as this little five-minute drill performed just once a day, on as many days as you remember to do it.

And just so you know, if you do this right now or even every day for the rest of your life, I’ll add back those five minutes to each of the days you do it. I’ll just sneak ’em in there, and they’ll feel like ten.

Hosanna in the highest,

Myth
“I find nothing in fables more astonishing than my experience in every hour. One moment of a man’s life is a fact so stupendous as to take the luster out of all fiction.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


I don’t know who said “truth is stranger than fiction” but I have seen so many examples of things that have happened where I just shake my head and say: “You couldn’t make this stuff up!” I have always been attracted to biographies and true stories for that very reason. Here we are, actually living some of the great myths of our time! Our history books are filled with them. Sometimes the lines are blurred, and we can’t remember what is real and what is not. We take liberty with history to have it “make sense” to us. Can we believe what is reported to us in the news? Or is it just another story? It’s up to each one of us to be informed, and make good decisions

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Indecision is not necessarily a bad thing, but taken to extremes it can make you pessimistic and defeatist. Take the time you need to make the choices you need but don’t get bogged down and grind to a halt. Take yourself in hand and refuse to feel helpless in the face of a challenging (or tempting) situation. Refuse to be rushed by anyone, too.

Thought For The Day: Aug. 5, 2020 “It’s Worth It”

Happy Wednesday,

We are seeing a lot about “empowerment” lately. The first step to empowerment lies in our ability to take responsibility for our words, and actions. If you are in the wrong, have done wrong or messed something up grab your courage and take the responsibility. Then work hard to make amends and make things right. Walking the path of empowerment is never easy but it IS worth it.

Thought For The Day: July 20, 2020 “It’s a Skill”

Happy Monday,

Being a good listener is important but it’s a skill that not everyone has. The truth is that when a friend or family member comes to us with a problem they really don’t want or need us to fix it for them. What they really want is for someone to listen, not judge or tell them what to do. They usually just need a sounding board to bounce ideas or thoughts off of so that they can fix things for themselves.  Today’s challenge: Be a good listener!

Self Honesty Is The Key:  Cat’s Angel Message for July 15, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

 

Self Honesty Is The Key:  Cat’s Angel Message for July 15, 2020

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


Reviewing your progress regularly helps you to see what you accomplished as well as the things that need attention. Self-honesty is the key that unlocks your creativity and powers of manifestation. ~Cat


715: Last month was about initiating change in our lives and we began the process through clearing space and making room for new things. Today the Universe is sending us a gentle reminder that what we put in motion is beginning to manifest. Can’t see the results just yet? Hang on…. they’re coming! Persistence and patience are the keys to working with changes of all kinds. This is now a good time to review what you’ve done so far (make a list if you need to) and make any necessary adjustments and tie up any loose ends. Should you have had a setback remember that these are only temporary. Look for the lesson and the truth in the situation then use this information to make the adjustments and move forward. Don’t let the little things hold you back. You’ve totally got this!


Today’s Spiritual Helpers include:

 

Archangel Chamuel helps us to recover things we have lost. while he usually works with lost items he can also help when we feel out of balance by showing us the reason behind it. He also assists us as we navigate our path by helping us to find the direction and guidance that needed 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 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 Gnostic goddess Sige teaches us the importance of being still of mind. Information and guidance come more easily when we surrender to the silence. She says” Allow your mind to be still and let your inner wisdom guide you. The answers that you seek are before you if you have the courage to remove the veils and shed light in the shadows.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

 

Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self-defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential. It helps to dissolve problems and insecurities that can arise when we are faced with new opportunities.

 

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.

 

Labradorite, called “The Bringer of Light” It is both protective and mystical. Turn the stone in your hands and see the flashes of color and light. They create a connection and helps to raise the consciousness to the energies of the Universe. Labradorite is also used to relieve fear and insecurity caused by old hurts and disappointments. It also strengthens our faith as it removes the projections of others that are holding us back.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Thought For The Day: Nov. 12, 2019 “Advice”

Happy Tuesday,

Have you noticed that it’s often easier to give advice to someone else than it is to use that same advice for ourselves? My father used to say “Don’t tell someone how to do something or how to live their life if you aren’t doing the same.” It may not be easy but it’s worth it.

The Voice Within: Cat’s Angel Message for July 15, 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!


Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to the voice within yourself. Your body and mind will become clear and you will realize the unity of all things. – Dogen


715:  Last month was about initiating change in our lives and we did that through clearing space and making room for new things. Today the Universe is sending us a gentle reminder that what we put in motion is beginning to manifest. Can’t see the results just yet? Hang on…. they’re coming!

Should you have had a setback remember that these are only temporary. Look for the lesson and the truth in the situation then use this information to make the adjustments and move forward. Don’t let the little things hold you back. You’ve totally got this!


Archangel Uriel can help us to overcome obstacles by showing us where the solutions are that will lead to our success. He provides us with the additional information that we need to make the most informed decisions we can. No problem is too great or too small for him to assist with. Uriel also helps us to gain spiritual understanding and creative insight. Today is a good day to simply touch base with him, ask for help if needed or simply express gratitude for the blessing in your life.  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. And, 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:

  • Orange Calcite helps us to embrace our own power and the abilities we possess while eliminating self defeating thinking. It also helps to balance the emotions and calm our fears so that we can work through problems and temporary setbacks so we may reach our full potential.
  • Cerussite to keep us grounded, and stimulate new growth while teaching us to be flexible and how to adapt to the changes we have made.
  • Happy, sunny Citrine  draws abundance and brings our self confidence forward. It promotes the optimistic mindset necessary to activate the manifestation process and nudges us into action. We can also use this crystal to help us sift through information and analyze situations so that we can move forward with positive intent. Citrine also helps us go with the flow and encourages us to explore all options so that we can make the best decisions for our journey.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Inner Journey:

REMEMBER YOUR SPIRITUAL SIDE

“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
— Soren Kierkegaard

Reminding ourselves often of our spiritual natures truly changes the quality of our lives. It helps us relax, slow down, lighten up, and generally find more space and joy in life.

When we get down on ourselves or life, we can pull back and ask, “How might my soul regard this situation? What am I being invited to experience?”

This shift in perspective helps us let go of the resistance that always comes with negativity. As energy once again begins to flow, our outlook brightens.

“Spirituality is the sacred center out of which all life comes, including Mondays and Tuesdays and rainy Saturday afternoons in all their mundane and glorious detail. … The spiritual journey is the soul’s life commingling with ordinary life.”
— Christina Baldwin

“It is not my business to think about myself. My business is to think about God. It is for God to think about me.”
— Simone Weil

Ask Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for May 26, 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!


Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts. – Albert Einstein


526:  Let’s start today with a question, “What is your heart’s true desire?” The answer to this question lies within each of us and it is up to us to find the answer. Today, the angels are asking us to look within and be honest with ourselves about what we truly want. Take a little time today for some soul searching and ask yourself:

*What do I REALLY want from (life, myself, others)?

*Am I REALLY happy, or am I just going through the motions?

*What can I DO to change my situation for the better?

It’s important to be honest with ourselves because we too often spend our time and energy living someone else’s desire. Living your heart’s desire does not make you selfish, uncaring or a bad person. It does however create inner peace, confidence and a happier and spiritually healthier YOU!


Archangel Michael helps us to find the courage and direction that we need to work through any obstacles that pop up. He teaches us that we have what it takes to create new things for ourselves as he helps us reach new levels of self confidence. He can help you to get  back on track and move forward on your personal journey. The Ascended Master El Morya helps us increase our faith and keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen as we navigate life’s path. The Hindu goddess Devi helps us to find meaning in our lives and gently guides us in learning to follow our own inner wisdom. She says “Take my hand and let me guide you on your journey of self discovery. You need only look within to find your true meaning. Release your cares to me and I will purify your heart and spirit. “


Our Sacred Stones for today include the following. Sodalite is a stone for the mind and encourages clear and calm thinking. It helps us to be objective and helps us to release old mental conditioning and outdated thought patterns as it boosts our self confidence and esteem. Rhodocrocite promotes a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity and Metamorphosis Quartz helps to bring about change and personal transformation.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: April 29, 2019 “Wisdom”

Happy Monday ,

We often attribute wisdom to a persons age, however  that’s not always the case. Don’t assume that just because a person is older that they are wise. The truth is that some of the wisest people I know are the young. Age doesn’t matter. Weigh the words for yourself. If they have merit take them to heart. If they don’t then take what’s usable and discard the rest, or use none of it. Above all don’t be afraid to use your own wisdom because that’s what will get you the farthest.
