MNN: How to forage like you’re from Finland

In Finland, they have what’s known as everyman’s right, also called the right to roam. People are permitted to camp, swim, bathe, fish and forage in almost all free spaces, even if those spaces are privately owned. That right, along with a history of foraging dating back to World War II, makes Finland’s city parks akin to wild grocery stores.

Patheos-Pagan: Harnessing The Power Of Symbolism In Pagan Worship

Symbolism, or “the practice or art of using an object to represent an abstract idea” has always held a raw, primitive power over the human subconscious. Think of Pan’s pipes, which represent pleasure, or his horns and goat legs, representing unbridled sexual inclination.

Inner Journey:  

YOU ARE WORTHY!

“A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having.”
— Alice Mary Hilton

As a human being, as spirit manifested in form, you are innately worthy. Your worthiness does not have to be strengthened or improved. However, you may not PERCEIVE yourself to be worthy.

If you doubt your self-worth, consciously or unconsciously, you will limit the good things you will allow into your life.

Do you consider yourself worthy? It may help to answer these questions:
• Do you find it easier to give than to receive?
• Do you have as much money as you would like?
• Do you feel driven to improve yourself?
• Do you value other people’s time more highly than your own?
• How would you feel if someone offered to pay you a salary of $1 million/year?

If you find you lack self-worth, don’t despair. Just being aware of your self-worth issues will help you let them go.

“Every achiever that I have ever met says, ‘My life turned around when I began to believe in me.'”
— Dr. Robert H. Schuller

“We cannot achieve more in life than what we believe in our heart of hearts we deserve to have.”
— James R. Ball

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” -Proverbs 23:7

Even way back when the bible was written people were talking about the heart’s intelligence. What do we KNOW in our heart? What conviction do we carry with us? It is important to recognize these thoughts, because they make up how we are, and who we think we are.

-Lissa Coffey

Happiness Is A Spiritual Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for May 16, 2018

Happiness Is A Spiritual Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for May 16, 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.


Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. – Denis Waitley


516:  Our thoughts create reality, I know that we hear this often. The fact is that it’s true. You see,  by acknowledging and focusing on the good things in our lives the happier and more peaceful we are. Now this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t want something better because we all deserve abundant blessings. Living in gratitude helps to make room for these blessings. Gratitude opens the door, shakes hands with the blessings on the doorstep and invites them in to take a load off and stay awhile. Today the Universe is gently reminding us that  that our needs are being met and that today is a great time to offer thanks for what you have and for the blessings that are headed your way!


The angel Barakiel helps us to open our hearts to receive the good things that come our way. The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi guides us through clearing space in both our inner and outer realms. She tells us ” You are worthy of so many wonderful things! Let me help you to clear the way so that these gifts can be given to you. Make room and feel the lightness it creates within your spirit.” Lakshmi works with the Hindu God Ganesh, Ganesh is the removers of obstacles of all kinds and he brings peace, harmony and abundance with him.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Topaz, Sunstone, Sardonyx, and Celestite. Topaz is a stone of joy, it cuts through both doubt and uncertainty. It opens the way for abundance, good fortune and helps us meet our goals successfully. Sunstone is also a stone that bring joy, it helps us provide loving self care. it is linked to all benevolent deities who bring good luck. Sardonyx opens the doors that allow new and helpful people and relationships into our lives and Celestite will not only help us to connect with our angels it promotes balance, alignment and peace during time when we are stressed.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Hope and Trust: Cat’s Angel Message for April 21, 2018 

 April Theme:  We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


 Confidence is that feeling by which the mind embarks in great and honorable courses with a sure hope and trust in itself. – Marcus Tullius Cicero


421:  Life’s path offers us many things. Some bring happiness and joy while others cause us pain and self doubt. Today, our angels are encouraging us to step up and be our own cheerleader. While it’s nice to have someone else pat us on the back and say “Good Job!” our self confidence benefits more from the Divine voice inside. That voice offers us nudges of encouragement as well as guidance. Listen to that voice and allow yourself to receive the mental hugs it has to offer. Remember to use your I AM and I CAN thinking to boost courage and confidence. Remember, you are a creator and you are worthy of accomplishing great things!


The Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us to think clearly when we are confused or filled with indecision. She helps us to see the truth behind all situations, other people and in ourselves while promoting integrity and order. Maat also protects us against deceit and manipulation. Archangel Uriel is there to assist us when we have problems that need  solving, especially those involving life lessons and the Ascended Master Saint Germain gives us the courage and direction we need to navigate life’s ups and downs.


Our Sacred Stones for today are Carnelian which increases our self esteem and teaches us to walk in our own power. Tourmalinated Quartz can relieve depression and fear, and aids in problem solving and Golden Ray Calcite  boosts our creativity and mental energy as it transforms self limiting beliefs into a positive self image.

Experiencing the Present: Cat’s Angel Message for April 14, 2018 

 April Theme:  We are being challenged to change ourselves. You have the power to make things happen and the Universe is on your side.


 Forgiveness … is the finishing of old business that allows us to experience the present, free of contamination from the past. – Joan Borysenko


 414:  Our Spa Day from yesterday carries over into today. The Universe is asking us to release our worries and fears to make room inside for inner peace. Our spiritual helpers will be  assisting us with exchanging the negative and stressful with peaceful and positive. It’s time to release what no longer serves your highest good or brings you joy. We often hold on to things out of fear. Fear of failure, new experiences, or of ourselves or sometimes there is even a kind of comfort in old, outdated situations. After all things stay the same if we don’t try. This releasing is imperative as it not only creates a better life, it makes us healthier in mind, body and spirit. We all deserve and are worthy of receiving good things. The key here is to trust in yourself and the Universe, you know what you need so allow yourself the ultimate freedom by cutting the cords that are holding you down.

 

 

Continue working with Archangel Michael. He will protect you through the changes and the letting go process. Michael blesses us with the knowledge of our own worth and provides direction the courage we need to move forward. The Egyptian Goddess Maat helps us to see the truth in all situation including the ones that leave us confused and the Ascended Master Buddha shows the path to achieving our our own inner peace.


Use the Sacred Stone Amethyst to connect with Archangel Michael and add Citrine to help banish emotional toxins, and Jade to promote inner and outer peace.

Successful Experiences: Cat’s Angel Message for February 24, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

 

The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you. – William Jennings Bryan


224: Today’s message embodies our theme for the month. We are being reminded to embrace the faith we have in ourselves. The Universe and the angels know that we are all worthy receiving the blessings that they offer. Prosperity, love abundance and more are available to us. However, there are times when we feel less than worthy and spend precious time knocking ourselves down. (Remember when we talked about being your own worst critic?) At times like this take some time to ground and center…. just breathe, do your best to let go and surrender the situation to your spiritual helpers. Dust off your courage (it’s there.. it really is!),  ask for help and give yourself a big hug and acknowledge your power as a creator. You ARE worthy, YOU are amazing and YOU have the ability to create wonderful things for yourself!


Archangel Michael is the go-to-angel. He helps us to calm down and get centered. He helps us to find our courage and our faith so that we can allow ourselves to move forward with confidence. The Irish Goddess Dana lovingly guides us through issues of self esteem and worthiness. Today she invites us to wear clothing or jewelry that makes you feel good. When we feel good about ourselves our levels of confidence increase and Ascended Master Maitreya helps to lift our mood through laughter.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Iron Pyrite. This stone give our confidence a boost and relieves anxiety and frustration.

Keeping In Touch With Yourself: Cat’s Angel Message for February 14, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

When you lose touch with yourself,
you lose yourself in the world.
– Eckhart Tolle

214:Today’s message is about love, it is Valentine’s day after all!. While it’s important to show love for those around you it’s equally important to show some for yourself. Today the angels are asking us to turn any fears or worries over to them and make room for some self love.  By acknowledging yourself as an awesome and amazing person (and you really are!) you are affirming that you are worthy of receiving the love and positive energies around you and being sent to you. As I said earlier this week we are quite often our own worst critics so today is your chance to jump on your own bandwagon. Be your own Valentine today and do something nice for yourself and don’t forget to give yourself a BIG hug and embrace the beautiful and divine spirit that is YOU!

 Kuan Yin is the Chinese goddess of mercy, compassion and protection. She helps us to find the kindness and compassion that dwells within us as well as teaching us that it’s okay to shower ourselves with these blessings.Archangel Jophiel teaches us the importance of slowing down so that we can enjoy the beauty that surrounds us and the beauty that is found inside, and the Ascended Master Maitreya, the Laughing Buddha,brings us peace through the power of joy and laughter. Our Sacred Stones for today are:

 

 

Rhodonite which promotes unselfish self-love and forgiveness.

 

Rose Quartz teaches how to love ourselves.

 

Magnesite stimulates the heart chakra and bring forward  the self love which is necessary before we can love others.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Feb. 14, 2018 “You Are Good Enough”

Happy Wednesday,

Today I need these words as much as anyone. Take time for yourself today to just breathe. Give yourself a big hug and remind yourself that you are an amazing, awesome person. Believe in your heart that you are good enough, if someone is telling you otherwise remember that they have problems of their own. Above all BELIEVE that you are worth it because you are worthy of good things, good people and a multitude of blessings!
