Being Of Service: Cat’s Angel Message for September 18, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


Let there be peace on earth. And let it begin with me. – Jill Jackson Miller


918:  Today the angels are asking us to consider this question: “How can I be of service?” Being of service to others is part of everyone’s Life Purpose or Mission. By helping others the energy that extends flows out and on its journey, it touches multiple people and situations before returning to us. Sometimes being of service can be a big undertaking, however, more often than not it’s the small things that bring the greatest joy and reward. There are many ways to be of service: Helping an elderly relative or neighbor. Maybe you know someone who needs a little mentoring or just someone to talk to. Spending quality time with your family. Volunteering at a local charity or even helping a stranger. Embrace unity and community and keep the energy moving today, not only does it makes others feel good, it makes you feel good too!


    • 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. She reminds us 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 El Morya supports all who give of themselves to help lift up others. 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 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 your 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.”

 

 


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Use Apatite to embrace a humanitarian attitude which helps to show where and how we can be of service.
  • Rhodonite helps to balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence. It’s calming influence helps us to ground and balance even during chaotic or upsetting situations. It also helps to promote the feeling of brotherhood. It also helps to clear and activate the heart chakra which is essential to embracing gratitude while promoting a loving and balanced approach to life and encourages a positive attitude and creativity.
  • Stilbite which helps us to find creative solutions to problems and enhances our intuition so that we can more effectively offer assistance.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: Has Your January Been A Doozy Already? Here’s Why, According To Astrology

January begins with both a whoosh AND a thud. As we leave 2018 in the rearview, the stars catalyze our desire for “new, different, anything but THAT again” by presenting not one but TWO eclipses this month. Eclipses are the cosmic change agents that spur us into action, sometimes by orchestrating dramatic or unexpected events.

Daily Good: Handing Out Positive Tickets

Jan 4, 2019– Tired of hearing about the negative in your neighborhood? Well, so were these high school kids, who started a program, now sponsored by the City of Rochester, NY, to reward the positive. Each summer, the youth walk around different neighborhoods, looking for the good. And if they spot it, they hand out a ticket: A Positive Ticket.

Elephant Journal: In 2019, May you Surrender, May you Forgive, May you Choose Peace over Chaos.

Lately, I’ve been wishing for lots of things.
A little too much.

In fact, the pressure I’ve put on these wishes has not just created a big gap between expectations and reality, but pierced that gap in its entirety to fall right back on me.

DailyOM: Redefining Health

No matter what our weight, we can use the cues from our physical and mental selves to judge how healthy we are.

Health is not a numerical concept and cannot be defined using statistics. Human beings, however, tend to want to quantify well-being into easily understandable figures. We feel compelled to ascribe numbers to every aspect of wellness, from the qualities of our food to our fitness levels to the physical space we occupy.

EarthSky News: Watch Venus and Jupiter before sunup

January 2019 presents a great time to catch the two brightest planets in Earth’s sky, Venus and Jupiter. Maybe you’ve seen them already. The waning crescent moon swept past them in the first few days of January, but now the moon has moved too close to the sun to be easily visible.

Patheos-Pagan: The Pentagram: Wicca’s Five-Pointed Symbol

A debate on the symbol so very much associated with modern Pagan traditions today, prompted me to dig out a copy of the 2008 book WICCA: Magickal Beginnings which I co-authored with David Rankine

Inner Journey:

EGO’S TRICKS

“One of the great dangers of transformational work is that the ego attempts to sidestep deep psychological work by leaping into the transcendent too soon. This is because the ego always fancies itself much more ‘advanced’ than it actually is.”
— Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

The Tibetan teacher, Chogyam Trungpa, warned of the trap of spiritual materialism. He says we must be ever diligent to spot the ego’s use of the spiritual journey to further its own ends.

We may think it’s spiritual to yearn for divine connection. And yet, if the longing is to fill an emptiness inside, just how does this differ from the one who yearns for money or possessions to fill the inner void? Do we look to our spiritual practices as proof of our evolved consciousness or as protection against fears?

Any time we use spiritual disciplines to maintain our identity and security, we are not yet on the path of genuine spiritual development.

“Enlightenment is ego’s ultimate disappointment.”
— Chögyam Trungpa

A Note from the Universe

I found your new Intergalactic Phone Book listing!!

It wasn’t easy. At first I looked under Illuminated, but you weren’t there. Then I looked under Faith Healer, Magician, and Wild Thing; not there either. You weren’t even under Funny Bones. I started to worry.

Then I had an “ah-ha” moment. I looked you up under people who have their own thriving business and a steady income, and who will very, very soon have financial security for myself and family… Eureka!

You make time and space look easy,

Authenticity

“Any path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you.”

-Carlos Castaneda
It’s okay to change directions. People have been reinventing themselves since time began. This is a good thing! When our heart leads us somewhere, it’s always for a reason. We need to follow and find out what that reason is. Usually this change brings us closer to who we really are, it allows us to discover our true self, and to be more authentic.

MBG: This Is What Actually Attracts People To You 

Over time, I’ve learned to understand words like “beauty” and “attractiveness” in a different way—not in terms of physical appearances but in terms of what I refer to as radiance. Radiance is that je ne c’est quoi that spins heads when you walk into a room. It creates a door where there was once a wall. It has nothing to do with age, body shape, or physical features.

Daily Good: 8 World-Views and Practices by Mark Nepo

Since prehistoric hunters had to work together in order to survive, people have had to learn how to share both the workload and the harvest, and the problems and the joys. Through the centuries, traditions have formed and complexities have grown. But the health of all community depends on how we treat each other. This article explores eight worldviews and the practices they offer. Each can help us stay wholehearted, authentic, and in true relationship to life and each other.

MNN: 8 things to know about the winter solstice

“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night,” quipped Steve Martin — and indeed, even a day with less sunshine can feel a bit dark. Our world depends on the light radiating from that big star we traipse around, and when it’s in short supply, we feel it. But if you count yourself among those who don’t love waking up before the sun rises and getting off work after it has set, things are about to lighten up. Hello, winter solstice!

EarthSky News: Time to look for Mercury and Jupiter below Venus

Now – mid-December 2018 – it’s time to get outside in the early morning and try to spot our sun’s innermost planet, Mercury. Look east, the sunrise direction. You can’t miss super-bright Venus. Mercury is below it, near the sunrise point. If you look extra hard with the unaided eye or binoculars, you might spot bright Jupiter near the horizon, too, on a line with Venus and Mercury.

REVIEW YOUR LIFE

“Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.”
— James Levin

Take a few minutes today to reflect on what has happened recently and to put the last week in perspective. What made an impact on you this last week? What do you want to set as a goal for next week?

Reflection helps us step back from the details of our lives and see the bigger picture with fresh eyes. It’s worth a few moments of your time. Review your week and come up with at least one conclusion, insight or learning and write it in your journal.

“Just because we increase the speed of information doesn’t mean we can increase the speed of decisions. Pondering, reflecting and ruminating are undervalued skills in our culture.”
— Dale Dauten

A Note from the Universe

Today don’t think or say, “I’m tired,” “I’m hurt,” “I’m angry.” Don’t even think or say, “I’m happy.”

Instead, think and say, “I’ve chosen to be tired, hurt, angry.” Or better still, “I’m choosing to be happy.”

You don’t get “hit” by feelings, you feel them based on your perceptions, and you perceive based on your beliefs, and you believe as you choose.

You are your words,

The Universe

Service

“If we could all hear one another’s prayers, God might be relieved of some of his burden.”

-Ashleigh Brilliant
We are here as angels, emissaries, to do God’s work, to help each other. We can hear one another’s prayers if we just listen. We are all one in spirit, and we all want the same things – love, respect, acknowledgment, a purpose. Think about all that we can do for each other to provide those very important things. It could be so simple, and so beautiful, and mean so much.

The Essence of Society: Cat’s Angel Message for March 1, 2018  

KODAK Digital Still Camera

The Essence of Society: Cat’s Angel Message for March 1, 2018  

March Theme:  This month guidance is coming from the Ascended Masters. Many of them walked the earth at one time as prophets, healers and teachers.  They are descended from ancient and modern cultures and civilizations and represent many different religions.  (Buddha, Mother Mary, Jesus, El Morya, saints, gods/goddesses, deva and bodhisattvas etc.)

Society has arisen out of the works of peace; the essence of society is peacemaking. – Ludwig von Mises

31:  Today the  Ascended Masters are asking us to start this new cycle  by raising our level of consciousness to one of love and peace. While this may sound like a throwback to the 1960’s hippie era, its energy is powerful  and one that all of us should strive to share with others. The world needs fewer instigators and more peacemakers. The concept of unity and community should top the list of priorities and by allowing peace to enter our lives we can set an example for others. It’s important to note that the Ascended Masters are not saying that we shouldn’t stand up for ourselves or for what’s right. If a stand need to be made do so. You can still be firm in your stance while promoting peace.

Archangel Raguel helps us when we are faced with standing our ground. He can show us the path to resolving disputes and arguments in a peaceful manner. The Ascended Master Buddha teaches us balance is necessary for creating peace on all levels while you maintain your ground. If religion plays a factor Yogananda and Babaji can keep us on the path to promote unity.

Our Sacred Stones for today are:
Apophyllite  promotes a strong connection between the physical body and information that is transmitted from the spiritual realms. Brings Universal love into the decision making process so that min and spirit are connected.
Moldavite helps us to communicate with the Ascended Masters.
Larimar also helps us connect to the angelic realms and stimulates feelings of love, peace and tranquility.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: February 28, 2018 “Strengthening Relationships”

Happy Wednesday ,

There is a lot to said about the way our ancestors lived. They obviously didn’t have the technology we enjoy today but they were closer to each other than we are now. The sense of community was strong and helping each other was normal and natural. Maybe  we no longer know what community really is. It seems to me that we only come together when tragedy strikes or something upsetting happens. Most never reach out to help unless there is something in it for them, people say “I have your back” and then throw you under the bus. Nice huh? Things are only as complicated as we make them, so why not make the choice to do good and help where we can and strengthen the ties of community.

Every Day Is The Best Day: Cat’s Angel Message for January 1 , 2018  

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Every Day Is The Best Day: Cat’s Angel Message for January 1 , 2018  

January’s Theme: Focus on dreams and goals not your fears or past happenings. Thoughts manifest into reality and through positive focus we lessen the power of the things we fear.

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

11: Welcome to the new year! Let’s first take a look at the number for 2018 (2+0+1+8=11/ 1+1=2) which is 2. The focus of the new year will be in creating what we want and how it helps our own reality along with our life purpose and soul missions. This will involve the help and cooperation of others, so don’t think that you must do everything by yourself. It will be a time of both faith and courage. To aid your progress be sure to pay attention to Divine guidance and your own intuition. Today’s number (11) is both a master and a karmic number and it speaks of personal enlightenment and spiritual awakening. Today the Universe is reminding us that we are not alone and help is always available to us. Our Angels are likewise encouraging us to build bonds and strengthen existing bonds with others. 2018 will be an amazing year for those who use their power as a creator to enrich their lives and the lives of those close to them. Together we can do great things if we work together to build unity and community.

The Archangel Raguel can help us to build both community and unity. He specializes in encouraging cooperation and harmony between people. The Egyptian goddess Maat teaches us to walk the path truth and integrity. She helps us to see the truth in all situations and shines light on those who would try to manipulate us and Ascended Master Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha, brings us peace on all levels and helps us to share it with others. Our Sacred Stone for the day is Blue Sapphire which promotes love and purity while it transforms negative feelings into positive vibes and encourages us to speak our divine truth. We can also use white feathers. While this is obviously not a stone it IS a symbol the Goddess Maat. Carry one as charm or a reminder of truth and integrity.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Oct. 6, 2017 “A Dangerous Place”

We have made it to Friday,

This has been a pretty sad week with the senseless act of violence in Las Vegas topping the list. Einstein had it right, the world IS a dangerous place to live. It takes events like this to show both the best and worst of human nature. It takes ALL of us to create unity, community and peace. While it sounds cliche, one person can make a difference to a few, but working together can make a difference to many. Be an everyday kind of hero, one who stands up for others and for what they believe in. Be a peace warrior and make peace wherever you can. Stand strong in the face of evil and adversity and you will find others standing beside you.
