Cat’s Morning Bits for March 9, 2018
Good Morning, grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and start things off with “Today’s Inspirations”. I hope you find something here that will make you feel good or help you on your path today.
The little white clouds are racing over the sky,
And the fields are strewn with the gold of the flower of March,
The daffodil breaks under foot, and the tasseled larch
Sways and swings as the thrush goes hurrying by.
Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
Mind Body Green: How Long Should You Really Be Diffusing Essential Oils?
If you have forayed into the aromatherapy world, chances are that you’ve heard of diffusing essential oils. Diffusion refers to any method or device that disperses aromatic molecules into the air. It’s a simple way to add a subtle yet noticeable aroma to any space that allows you to get creative and customize your own blends. Plus, science says that diffusing certain blends can help battle unwanted germs, alleviate insomnia, and even boost concentration.

A Bountiful Moment
Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade before they can bloom again.
Change is inevitable. Your life journey will bring beginnings and endings. How you look at them and transition through them will keep you living in the past or embracing the future with hope and optimism.
Look at today as a new beginning. What can you let go of that no longer is of service in your present life. Let it go and make room for the new you to shine.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

The moon is now heading for Mars and Saturn in the predawn sky, but Jupiter is still up there, too, bright and very noticeable. Plus Jupiter begins retrograde motion on Friday, marking the beginning of the best time of year to see it.
Patheos-Pagan: Following The Hoof prints Of The Old One
Elder Spirits Surviving the Centuries
In traditional witchcraft we seek to emulate the rituals and wisdom of Witches who came before us. History has not been kind to followers of the Old Ways, and that is reflected by the form currently taken by the patron of our Arte. I think the idea of a single-unbroken chain of wisdom or tradition of practice that has been passed on throughout the ages is an idea that we as modern practitioners can finally put to bed
LIFE AS A MIRROR
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
— C.G. Jung
We get clues about our unconscious programming if we watch our reactions, responses, feelings and thoughts about other people and events. Ask yourself: How do I judge or stereotype people? What pushes my buttons? What makes me angry or fearful or sad?
The outer incidents that trigger these reactions in me simply MIRROR my own nature. If I didn’t have beliefs around the issues that upset me, where would my reactions come from? If I didn’t have some internal reference, I wouldn’t react at all.
When outer events spark a reaction, we need to look inside to explore what’s going on.
“We discover in ourselves what others hide from us and we recognize in others what we hide from ourselves.”
A Note from the Universe
Have you noticed that the more you hurry, the slower you go?
The more you wait, the longer it takes?
The more you worry, the less you dream?
But the more you live, love, and laugh, the more you live, love, and laugh.

“Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness… the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire.” -Pierre Tielhard de Chardin
Is there anything more powerful than love? Love is creative; with love we can accomplish anything. With love we have accomplished everything! Love is the great up-lifter, the strongest force there is. Love heals. Love grows. Love is the basis for life itself. Love is invisible, and yet ever-present. Love is the most valuable gift we will ever give or receive, and yet love is perfectly free.
MNN: How to grow microgreens at home
If you enjoy indoor gardening and want living proof that good things truly do come in small packages, try growing microgreens.
Microgreens are seedlings of most standard vegetables and herbs. Think turnips, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, chard, lettuce, spinach, arugula, amaranth, cabbage, beets, parsley and basil, to name a few. Because the plants must be harvested when they are small —
