Thought For The Day: July 29, 2020 “Hang 10”

Happy Wednesday,

Feelings are like the ocean, sometimes gentle, sometimes turbulent and sometimes they crash down on us and knock us off our feet. Like everything else in life, we have choices. When feelings roll in we have a choice in how we react to them. Do you let the riptide suck you down or do you stay balanced on your surfboard and master that wave?

You Have Choices: Cat’s Angel Message for July 24, 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!


Choices, choices, choices! Life is full of them so make the ones that are best for you! ~Cat


724:  Sometimes things happen that make it difficult to stay on our chosen path. Every day brings us new challenges and distractions (OOOoo look! Shiny!!) These distractions often come in the form of well-meaning people who “just want to help”. (We all know a few of these right?) Just remember that it’s YOUR path and to take the advice of others with a grain of salt. Be honest with yourself because you are the only one who knows what’s best for you. If the advice you are given doesn’t mesh or is an attempt to push in a direction you’d rather not go, remind yourself that the choice is yours to make. There are also times when we question ourselves particularly during times of change, self-doubt, or fear. If this happens today (or any day) take a moment to center and focus. Then ask yourself “Is this really what I want?” or “What is best for me right now?” Listen to the guidance that you receive and above all trust in yourself!


Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

 

Archangel Raguel helps us to find our power and brings clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He also aids in the letting go process which is essential to moving forward. Raguel reminds us that sometimes people can get “freaky” when they see you moving off in a new direction and helps to smooth the way by resolving conflicts and disharmony with those around us as we work with our creative magic.

 

The Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us to persevere in our personal quests and provides us with courage and direction. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things and shows us the way to comfortably interact with people and situations that can help us achieve our goals.

 

The Hawaiian fire goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment, or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:
Blue Lace Agate helps us to create and maintain balance during times of stress. It helps us to find our voice when indecision is a factor, allowing us to freely express thoughts and feelings in a peaceful manner.

 

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.

 

Iolite, also known as “Poor Man’s Amethyst” it is a stone of vision that assists our intuition and aids us in setting things in motion by staying true to yourself and your path while freeing you from the expectations of others. It helps us to live in the moment making it easier to snag the blessings given to us. It is also a soothing stone that calms emotions during times of change.


Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

Thought For The Day: July 13, 2020 “Is It Worth It?”

Happy Monday,

Every day we are bombarded by tiny things designed to drive us nuts. By allowing these things to get to us our inner peace disappears. The key to maintaining our inner peace lies in our ability to let the annoying things bounce off. Ask yourself  “Is this worth getting annoyed about?” If the answer is no let it go. You have a choice in how you react, choose wisely your inner peace is worth it.

Daily Dream Meaning: Teeth

1. False or disembodied teeth portend the breakdown of an important relationship in the dreamer’s life – not necessarily a romantic one.
2. If the dreamer dreams of aching teeth, this could be a warning of future health problems, possibly involving the teeth but not necessarily. White and beautiful teeth, on the contrary, portend health and happiness.
3. Broken or decayed teeth imply the need for repair in some department of the dreamer’s life. Look to other symbols in the dream to judge which one.
4. Dreaming of brushing your teeth implies making major and positive changes in your life.

Inner Journey:

CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY TODAY

“It is always your next move.”
— Napoleon Hill

The great benefit of heightened awareness is that we have more choice in how we live our lives. At any moment, we can purposefully choose a new experience for ourselves. We can choose to pay attention, breathe more deeply, laugh, rest, play, appreciate, do something different – the possibilities are endless.

Whenever you remember, TAKE YOURSELF OFF AUTO-PILOT and really examine your situation. Take charge and make a choice that will enrich your experience. At the end of the day, reflect on what happened and how you felt when you chose a new line of thought, feeling or action.

“We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us — how we can take it, what we do with it — and that is what really counts in the end.”
— Joseph Fort Newton

“When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.”
— Tin Cup (the movie)

And remember: “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”
— Neil Peart

Wise friends, however, wouldn’t dream of it because they understand that they’ll never know of all the secrets that stir in your heart, of your gifts that lie in waiting, or of the plans that we have made.

Gardening
“My garden is an honest place. Every tree and every vine are incapable of concealment, and tell after two or three months exactly what sort of treatment they have had. The sower may mistake and sow his peas crookedly: the peas make no mistake but come and show his line.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

 
How does your garden grow? Remember that line from a nursery rhyme? Now we can see how it applies to the ‘big picture.’ What choices are we making? What colors are we choosing for our palette? Do we have some vegetables in the mix? Some fragrant flowers? Are we showing our garden enough tender-loving-care? We will harvest our rewards, and they can be as bountiful as we want them to be!

-Lissa Coffey

Thought For The Day: May 21, 2020 “Say Buh-Bye To Drama”

Happy Thursday,

There are people who seem to thrive on drama. They just love to draw you in and keep you ensnared resulting in the loss of our time and energy as we “help them with the mess they create.” There comes a time when the best thing we can do is cut the ties and move on.  While this can be hard sometimes, it’s worth it in the long run. Remember, you have a choice in this and your peace of mind is worth more than unwanted drama.

Thought For The Day: April 13, 2020 “Making the Best Of What We Have”

Happy Monday,

No one has ever said that life was easy or perfect. There is only life and we do the best we can with what we have. But there are times, like right now for example when everything seems to have fallen apart and obstacles are everywhere. However, we have choices. We can choose how we deal with what’s going on. We can make the most with what we have right now or we can wallow around in self-pity and despair. Find happiness and gratitude in the small, simple things. It not only helps you but those around you as well. What will you choose today?

Just Flow: Cat’s Angel Message for January 15, 2020

daily Angel Message sms

Just Flow: Cat’s Angel Message for January 15, 2020

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts are ready to manifest into reality so stay focused on where you want to go instead of where you’ve been.


One can flow harmoniously with the River – or one can struggle fearfully against the River – and the River just flows. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


115: The new year just like any new cycle brings new beginnings and change. Remember that the key to embracing change lies in our perception of it and how we deal with it. There are three options where change is concerned:

Fight it: Struggling with change keeps us from growing (emotionally, mentally, spiritually) and creates unneeded stress which can keep us from achieving our desired dreams and goals.

Ignore it: Change will happen anyway, however, we forfeit our control of the creation process and can wind up settling for less.

Work with it: This allows you to take an active roll in the creation process. By embracing change we can set things in motion then allow things to unfold naturally and nudge things along as needed.

Today the Universe is asking us to make friends with change and to elevate our thinking. Stay focused on what’s important in your life and continue working toward a positive outcome. Accept that these changes are happening for your overall good and that it’s time to open the doors to new adventures.


The Archangel Jeremiel is in charge of life reviews and changes. He can help you see everything that you have accomplished recently as well as the areas that need attention and helps us to let go of what we no longer need. He teaches us that by taking inventory of our lives we gain a clear perspective of where we are on our path, which in turn helps us to make positive life changes. He removes our fear of change and what the future holds and replaces them with a sense of expectant excitement.

The Ascended Master Vywamus encourages us to continuously and consciously seek inspiration through the discovery and rediscovery of our own natural abilities and talents. He teaches us that healing can be found in change. If something is holding you back he can teach you how to let it go or let it be so you can continue moving forward.

The Greek Goddess Hecate teaches us about the importance of change. She helps us to release the past and the old things that keep us from moving on and how to accept change and transition. She tells us: ” I am the guardian of the crossroads. Remember that to move ahead you must face your fears and release the past. Change and circumstance are inviting you to choose a path. It is your choice so make the one that is best for you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Tiger’s Eye helps build a bridge between you and your power. It shows us the correct way to use our power and invites our integrity forward. It is also a stone of abundance and draws good things to us while helping us see the blessings we have. Tiger’s Eye helps us to accomplish our goals by showing us how to recognize and access our inner resources and the promotion of clear intentions. It is a stone of luck and prosperity and works with the energies of both earth and sun, it also helps with grounding while drawing spiritual energies to earth.

Gentle Seraphinite helps to clear the heart chakra opens us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life and shows the changes that we need to make to best helps us on our path.

Smoky Quartz helps to neutralize negative energy and teaches us how to work through the fear of failure which can show up during times of change and transformation. It also promotes clear insight and focus which helps us to leave behind the things that no longer serve us and make room for the blessings headed your way

Thought For The Day: Jan. 7, 2020 “Inner Strength”

Happy Tuesday,

Inner strength is something that we all have although there are times when we must dig deep for it. This can happen when we allow other people and outside events to dictate “what we should do”, “how we should think” or “how we should act”. Remember, you don’t have to follow the crowd. You have a mind and a voice…. use them. If it doesn’t feel right, sound right, look right or makes you uncomfortable then grab your strength and make the decision that is the best for you.

Thought For The Day: Jan. 2, 2020 “Path = Life”

Happy Thursday,

We talk often about our path. Our path = life. Obviously, life isn’t easy which means that as we navigate our path we will invariably encounter obstacles. When we find these things we have choices. Do we give up or do we work to eliminate what lies in our path?   Remember that life is an adventure and by slaying a few dragons and climbing mountains we grow and our lives become richer and more fulfilling. So grab your courage, your pocket handkerchief, and a walking stick so that you are ready to meet those obstacles wherever they pop up.

To Live Is To Choose:   Cat’s Angel Message for July 24, 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!


To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there. – Kofi Annan


724:  Sometimes things happen that make it difficult to stay on our chosen path. Everyday brings us new challenges and distractions (OOOoo look! Shiny!!) These distractions often come in the form of well meaning people who “just want to help”. (We all know a few of these right?)

Then ask yourself “Is this really what I want?” or “What is best for me right now?” Listen to the guidance that you receive and above all trust in yourself!


Archangel Michael helps to calm our fears and guides us through issues of self doubt. He helps us to find our courage and our direction while giving us the strength that we need to choose wisely and make decisions on our own. Michael’s energy is easily felt particularly during times of stress, confusion and helps us when we feel lost or overwhelmed. He sets us on the path of commitment to our purpose by providing courage and direction as he shows us how 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. Michael helps everyone so don’t be afraid to ask him for help. The Ascended Master Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. while his “big brother” energy surrounds us with loving protection. He can also help us when dealing with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path. And the Hawaiian fire goddess Pele helps us to ignite our inner fire. This fire when channeled correctly helps to fuel our passions and sense of purpose. She is a goddess of empowerment teaches us about honest communication and how it aids our goal setting and getting. “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  •  Pietersite (Tempest stone) helps us to work through through beliefs and conditioning imposed upon us by others. It opens our  intuitive connection and creates a link to a loving level of guidance. It also helps us see the truth and strengthen our will while increasing our focus of where we really want life to take us. It helps us to rid ourselves of negative energy and replaces it with calm.
  • Gentle Rhodonite helps to balance both our mental and physical energies. 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.
  • 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.
