Behold within the north a crimson light
That reaches to the heavens’ farthest height.

Mind Body Green: 5 Quick Ways to Harness Your Intuitive Abilities
Intuition is a superpower we all possess a type of secret inner gift. It is your most sacred, trustworthy, brilliant internal guidance system. And yet most of us override, negate, dismiss, or forget about this precious present. We go to our head before we go to our heart to fit in to a fast-paced, intellectualized society.
Beliefnet: Did You Ask A Good Question Today?
When I came home from school each day my mother didn’t ask me, “Did you get the right answer today?”
Instead, she would query, “Did you ask a good question today?”
She understood that asking the right questions is much more useful than trying to have all the answers.
A Bountiful Moment:
Change happens when you come to realize that you have no other alternatives.
Fear of change and comfort in the habitual makes you shy away from acting in a different manner. Anxiety is real and it is a fear based emotion. So when you think about doing something different your whole body and mind will react. Think past the initial response to what you are trying to accomplish then jump. The only way to move past the uncomfortable feeling is to do what you are afraid of.
Face your fears today. What is the scary thought or action that is holding you back from moving forward? If you have thought about what you want to do and are not doing it, take a deep breath then jump into action. Donï¿½t get stuck in the replay mode. It only increases the doubt, anxiety and retreat into what is comfortable. Even if what is comfortable is no good for you. You got this. Just do it.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Fear, Experience and Becoming Invincible
Recent events have me contemplating the role fear plays in our lives, and the processes by which we can immunize ourselves against fear.
There’s been a lot of garbage written about fear over the years. People claim fear is only an illusion and they attempt to shame others who are afraid. They offer clichïd solutions with no more power than a plastic charm made by a fictional witch. They exploit your fears to steal your attention, your money, your votes, and your soul.
LET GO OF BLAME
“My days of whining and complaining about others have come to an end. Nothing is easier than fault finding.”
— Og Mandino
We often expect other people to meet our needs. When they don’t give us what we want, we may feel anger, resentment and even revengeful. Rather than blaming others, we could choose to get in touch with our needs and then fill them ourselves.
“Take your life in your own hands and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame.”
— Erica Jong
“Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrong.”
— Charlotte Bronte
A Note from the Universe
Big ideas almost never seem like big ideas, at first.
So be on the lookout for little ideas that seem kind of ho-hum, ain’t no big thang, let-me-floss-first kind of ideas.
Today’s Recipe: Pickled Bean Sprouts
This is a dish that accompanies braised pork belly or braised catfish, especially during Chinese/Vietnamese New Year. But you can eat this on any occasion too. Goes great with braised meats and poultry.

“Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.”
There are times when it is best to take baby steps, to move cautiously. And then there are times when we need to take a leap of faith and just go for it. Starting a business is a big decision in itself. And like life, and everything else, how much we put into it shows. Success is a personal definition, it’s about how you feel.
