Thought For The Day: May 15, 2018 “Every Great Success”

Happy Tuesday,

Today’s thought is pretty straight forward. My advice is “don’t give up because you CAN do this. You are capable of making great things happen. Remember there is no failure just temporary setbacks. If something doesn’t work step back and try looking at it from a different angle. There is always another way to Git-R-Done.

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.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: The One Practice That Taught Me To Shed Labels And Embrace Freedom

From the time we are young children, we place labels on ourselves to make sense of the world. We are either skinny or big-boned; cool or unpopular; a musician or an athlete.

And while these labels at times can be helpful to create some form of an identity, they are often extremely limiting. They place us into boxes�or out of them�and continue to follow us well into adulthood.

MNN: Toby the cat walked 12 miles to get back to the family that didn’t want him

When Toby the cat’s owners didn’t want him anymore, they gave him to another family. But Toby thought perhaps there had been a mistake. The 7-year-old orange-and-white kitty took off and slowly made the 12-mile trek back to their house.

Patheos-Pagan: Lough Gur in a Driving Rain

Today you can buy an airline, rail, or bus ticket for travel at any time of the year. Winter snowstorms, Spring tornados, or Fall hurricanes may disrupt your plans, but the odds are good you’re going to make it just fine. It wasn’t always so.

The weather impacted our trip to Ireland and Wales, but most of it fell under the category of minor annoyances. Cold? Add another layer. Rain? Wool hats and hooded jackets work wonders. Rough seas have the ferries running late? Nap on the ship and catch up on sleep when you get home.

Inner Journey: There’s Hope!

“No matter how painful our early experiences were, our Essence cannot be harmed. Our Essence is waiting for the opportunity to reveal itself. In a very true sense, we are waiting for the opportunity to become ourselves. Our spirit is yearning to break free, to express itself …

“And yet, ironically, we always fear and resist opening to that which is most real in us. When we trust in the process and give ourselves over to it, however, our true nature comes forth. The result is real integrity, love, authenticity, creativity, understanding, guidance, joy, power, and serenity-all of the qualities we are forever demanding that personality supply.”
— Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson

A Note from the Universe

You know what they’re going to do, don’t you?

And you do know what they’re going to say?

Yeah, once you consistently spend some time visualizing every day, doing the “all you can with what you’ve got” dance, and pushing yourself to live the life of your dreams to any degree that you now can, so that the floodgates fly open and you have your dream home, your dream work, and your dream friends.

They’re gonna give you that long, cold glance out of the corner of their eyes and say in a long, drawn-out voice, just loud enough for you to hear, “Must… be… nice…”

Just warning you,

The Universe

Perception

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.” ~ -Buddha

Our perception tends to be that growth is hard, that it is a struggle, that it is work. But the truth is that we are only making it hard on ourselves. We cling to the past, try to control our futures. Are we willing to get out of our own way and just let it be? It could be so simple! Look at the flower. Learn from the flower. We can bloom just as easily.

Beliefnet: 5 First Ladies and Their Powerful Legacies

First Ladies are rarely as well-known as their presidential husbands. The history books often relegate them to a mere footnote, and many people mention the names of America�s First Ladies only as the answer to a trivia question. A number of people can name most of the presidents of the United States, but the women who were their supporters, advisers and confidants are often forgotten. These women helped their husbands handle the stressful years spent running the nation but are rarely recognized for their contributions, although quite a few First Ladies have put their positions of power to good use.

Beliefnet: Peace of Mind Becoming Fully Present

. If you have an unpleasant feeling, a feeling of sadness, fear, worry, or despair, you may think you don’t have the capacity to return home to be in touch with that emotion, to manage and embrace it. You want to run away from it and you have many ways to run away, like magazines, books, music, food, the Internet, or busily strategizing so you won’t be in touch with your body and mind. Mind and body are alienated from each other, and this makes us sick

A Bountiful Moment

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And Today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present. ~Babatunde Olatunji

Daily Thought: Today is a great day! Don’t miss it by ruminating over what has already passed. Don’t let it go by with your focus on what is going to happen tomorrow. Stay present in the moments of the day to experience fully all the beauty and joy it will bring.

Daily Practice: Focus on your day today by staying present and experiencing all the good, fun, and joy that occurs. Listen to the sounds, smell the aromas, feel the temperature, see the people, and experience the emotion of every second of happiness.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: When Force Is On The Dot

Many see the card of Force as a representation of strength. In invented stories about this card, the woman with the lion is an archetype of power; not social power, as we reserve that for the Emperor, but power that has to do with character and moral spine.

Fair enough.

Inner Journey: Free to choose

“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
— Sigmund Freud

In his book Nobody�s Victim, Christopher J. McCullough explains, “In order to live your freedom, you must first accept reality. ‘These are the choices, and given those choices, which do I choose?’ Whether the option you select is pleasant or painful does not alter the fact that, given reality, this is your preference.

“To live your freedom, it is helpful to stop and ask yourself, ‘Why am I doing this?’ and then notice whether, given the options, you are choosing what you really want, or whether you want to choose something else…. Sometimes the exercise of freedom involves naming your poison — all choices may lead to outcomes that are in some way painful. But the real pain is that of feeling powerless — denying your freedom.”

“Freedom is man’s capacity to take a hand in his own development. It is our capacity to mold ourselves.”
— Dr. Rollo May

A Note from the Universe

Your very thoughts are the key. You can do it. Whatever you want, you can have it. Just think it, feel it, and vaguely move towards it. And with persistence, tipping points will be reached, critical mass formed, and the most outlandish serendipities arranged.

The world you now live in was created this very way, and through “thinking” you perpetuate the celebration. You are a nonstop creating machine; a manifesting maestro. You are pure “cause.”

And for now, it’s still virtually a secret: Your very thoughts are the key.

Infinite love,

Perception

“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that are forever blowing through one’s mind.” ~-Mark Twain

Isn’t it amazing how we can each see the same thing in an entirely different way? It’s because of our perceptions. Our past experiences help us to formulate some kind of definition to our current experiences. Yet we can change the way we look at things. We can choose a different perspective, see things from someone else’s point of view, or from a higher vantage point. And when we broaden our scope and look at the “big picture” then we can see more clearly what is real.

MBG: Think Small Changes Won’t Help? Here Are 4 That Will Transform Your Mental Health

We’re all familiar with the goals so many of us set to support and improve our physical health, like going to the gym or trying an elimination diet. But what we often fail to address in our quest for improved wellness is our mental and emotional health. Sure, the benefits of addressing our physical wellness may very well spill over into our emotional sphere, but isn’t our mental health important enough to focus on in and of itself?

Thought For The Day: April 11, 2018 “Starting The Journey”

Happy Wednesday.

I have always taken this particular quote as a reference to a person’s fear of failure. Walking our life path is never easy and is filled with obstacles. (it’s filled with a lot of good things too). Sometimes we need to do something and just don’t know where to start. It feels overwhelming, so we put it off and hope it will go away. The thing is that it never does. The key is to take that first step, even if it’s a baby step. The first step is always the most difficult because it requires us to acknowledge our fears. By taking that first step we are inviting new doors to open, which lead to a second step and then third. Before you know it you have tackled this “journey” and discovered that it wasn’t so bad after all. You’ve totally got this!

Thought For The Day: April 2, 2018 “Dreams and Goals”

Happy Monday,

It’s a new month and that means that a new cycle has begun. Our week starts with a reminder about our powers of manifestation. What? Of course you have them… everyone does! We are responsible for making things happen in our lives and for initiating the changes that help us to grow. What are your dreams, your goals, your desires? Are you working on them now or are they stuffed in a closet somewhere? It’s time to dig them out and take inventory. Set a goal, even a small one and before you know it you are manifesting great things! Now go………. create!
