ThoughtCo: How to Celebrate Beltane 

With roots in the British Isles, Beltane is a celebration that falls midway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. It honors spring at its peak and the coming summer. If the spring has been a fruitful one, usually the rains have produced rich and fertile earth with verdant green woodlands. And Beltane celebrates the new life that will emerge during this seasonal transition

MBG: This Personality Trait Has A Big Impact On Your Overall Life Satisfaction

In psychology, there exists a theory that we humans have an unconscious longing to return to the blissful symbiosis of mother and infant. Known as “oneness fantasies,” this controversial concept hearkens images of an unborn fetus comfortably wrapped in the warm, loving darkness of the mother’s womb, a small, knowable universe that the fetus is both sustained by and also one with.

Elephant Journal: How Reiki Works—The Science Bit.

If you are like me, deeper understanding comes from learning everything both spiritually and physically, and how it fits into everyday life, as we can understand it in a tangible and logical way.
But to explain something that we cannot see or fully understand with our limited human minds is a massive task. I will try my best to collate my extensive research into a short version here as best as I can to help dispel any fears that may be associated with working with what is still not completely understood.

MNN: Why do bees have pockets?

When you see bees flitting about your garden, you might notice that some of them have orange or yellow clumps along their hind legs. Resembling tiny saddlebags, these bright spots of cargo are pollen baskets or corbiculae. These baskets are found in apid bees, including honey bees and bumblebees.
Pollen sticks to bees each time they visit flowers. As the Adirondack Almanack points out, “It sticks to their antennae, their legs, their faces, their bodies. They become one giant pollen magnet.

Inner Journey:

BELIEVE IN YOUR UNLIMITED POTENTIAL

“You cannot see anything that you do not first contemplate as a reality.”
— Ramtha

How do you typically define yourself? Do you tell yourself and others that you are slow and methodical, that you have two left feet, that you are lazy, or unimaginative or that you can’t hang on to money?

In our unconscious self talk, most of us rarely say positive things about ourselves. List the positive and the negative ways you describe yourself. Then look over your list and contemplate how those definitions limit your ability to be cosmic in your outlook and performance.

“Belief has the word ‘lie’ in it… and that pretty much sums up what the world has us believing about ourselves.”
— Doug Firebaugh

“We are what we believe we are.”
— Benjamin N. Cardozo

Thought For The Day: April 9, 2019 “Never Give Up”

Happy Tuesday,

This quote is personal for me. It’s a reminder to never give up. Never give up on yourself or who you are, your dreams, or life in general. We are all worthy of good things, good relationships and being better people. Refuse to let others knock you down or keep you down. Above all refuse to let them change you into a creation not your own. You’ve totally got this!

Thought For The Day: April 2, 2019 “Being Proud”

Happy Tuesday,

While it’s nice to make others proud of us, the truth is that it’s more important to BE the person that we can be proud of. Being honest, compassionate, a good friend, a good listener, do the right thing. Stand up for yourself, help lift others or set a good example. Life is filled with all kinds of opportunities to make ourselves proud. What will YOU do today?

Directing Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for March 27, 2019

Directing Your Life: Cat’s Angel Message for March 27, 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.


Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. – Carl Jung 


327:  Spring is the season of new beginnings, new growth and change, all of which are integral parts of our path. So how do you know if you are on the right path and headed in the right direction? First of all remember that everyone’s path is unique and you are truly the only one who knows what’s best for you. Walking your path involves courage, trust in Spirit, ourselves and our own inner magick. We are being reminded that our intuition is a valuable gift. We are all able to discern right from wrong, what feels right and what doesn’t and what brings us joy. Now add to that your intuitive gifts and you’ll find your path and new paths opening up before you . If you are unsure of your next “step” take some time to think about or meditate on where you want to be then move forward making the necessary adjustments as you go. Allow yourself to move forward with confidence, set you intentions high and know that the the Universe is there to help you.


The combination of Archangel Michael and Ascended Master Saint Germain provides direction, courage and motivation as we travel along our path. Both also offer protection, Michael on all levels and Germain on the psychic. Between these two they definitely have you covered. The Hindu Goddess Kali oversees the ending of cycles and personal transformation. Kali’s energy is like a powerful storm that clears away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings, and the courage and motivation we need to see things through. She says, “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”


Our Sacred Stones for today: Turquoise brings mental and spiritual clarity which is essential to staying on track with our path. Moonstone helps to combat repeated cycles and patterns that keep us from moving forward so that we can embrace change and new beginnings. Garnet brings courage and the awareness of change and how to go with the flow and Hessonite Garnet brings courage where new challenges arise.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Stand Tall: Cat’s Angel Message for March 21, 2019

Stand Tall: Cat’s Angel Message for March 21, 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.


Stand Tall, Stand Proud. Know that you are unique and magnificent. You do not need the approval of others. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


321:  The Ascended Masters are sending us a gentle reminder today about faith. While it’s important to have faith in the Divine Source it’s just as important to have faith in yourself. This can also be seen as as an extension of yesterday’s theme of hope and new beginnings. By having faith in ourselves we are effectively acknowledging our readiness to embrace new beginnings and the hope we have for better things to come. We also gain valuable insight on a personal level as we gain a better understanding of our strengths and weaknesses. The key is to maintain a balance of faith between yourself and the Divine. Remember that you are a powerful creator and that the Universe is on your side!


Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey’s that we can heal our selves and our lives and regain  self confidence and faith. Ascended Masters like Jesus, Moses, El Morya can help with all areas of faith.  And, the Egyptian goddess Isis teaches us that through our own divine magick we find joy and increased self esteem. She says Always remember that you are a powerful creator in your own right. When you cloak yourself with dedication and determination you can move the heavens and the earth and create miracles.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Labradorite which helps 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. Sacred Stones that increase faith include Pyrolusite which promotes confidence and determination, Peridot helps to sharpen the mind and enhance self confidence. It can teach us to look back at the past and find the gifts within our experiences and then shows us the path to forgiveness and moving forward.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
