Spirituality & Health: 3 Steps To A Kinder Mind
Offering a smile and a kind word to the checkout person, giving a frazzled mom an understanding look when her child is having a tantrum, offering your shoulder to cry on for an upset friend; these are all gifts of kindness. While there may be a cultural trend away from kindness, it is possible to cultivate this capacity within yourself
Beliefnet: Angel Feather Colours and Their Meanings
Our angels like to send us signs to let us know they are listening and working on our prayers and requests. Symbols like feathers are most important when they are meaningful to the person who receives them, especially if you have asked your angels for a sign. The first question to ask is “What does the sign mean to me?” What were you doing or thinking about when you noticed the sign or feather? When analyzing anything, ask yourself first always, “What does this mean to me?”
mindbodygreen: Your Complete Astrological Forecast For April Has Arrived
Clash of the cardinal signs? April’s stars cluster in two distinct camps, gathering in fiery Aries and determined Capricorn. As new-radical Aries meets old-guard Capricorn—and four planets have retrogrades—change is unavoidable but should be carefully considered.
A Bountiful Moment
Know your truth and act accordingly.
Daily Thought: Do not be distracted by the noise of the day. Act on what you know will be the future you and allow today to take care of itself. Be confident that you have already set into action all that is occurring so you can continue to create what is going to happen in your tomorrow.
Daily Practice: Visualize today the completion of something you have set into motion. See yourself doing it. What do you look like? Where are you at? What and who is around you? Spend time in that space several times today and act as if you are already there.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Building Your Own Liturgical Calendar
Imbolc is for Brighid and Lughnasadh is for Lugh, but when do we fulfill our obligations to Cerridwen or Cernunnos or Athena? … If a God is important to you, They should have Their day at some point. There may be historically appropriate days, but if not, pick one. Establish your own liturgical calendar.
LIVING THE ADVENTURE
“I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a man’s life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should live with this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.”
— Martin Buber
A Note from the Universe
I understand that you must wonder, sometimes to the point of bewilderment, at what you’re truly capable of doing. Yet, therein lies the “problem,” because living the life of your dreams is far more about what I’m capable of doing.
Today’s Recipe: Pineapple Nice Cream
This is a super healthy and delicious alternative to ice cream. There’s no dairy or added sugar. The pineapple flavour is the star, and the smooth texture of the mango gives it its ice cream effect. For being 100% fruit, this dessert is a guilt-free and creamy delight!

“Our goal must be not peace in our time but peace for all time.” -Harry S. Truman (1884-1972) Informal remarks, Galesberg, Illinois, 1950
In turbulent times, where is our attention? On the problem? Or on the desired outcome? What can we do to help the world situation, while we are here comfortable in our homes and we know that others are suffering? We can’t all go out and battle, nor would that help even if we could. We must think peace. We must bring our attention to peace. We must create a unified consciousness of PEACE ON EARTH, GOODWILL TO ALL. We must build a class consciousness of love and caring. Starting right here and right now, with each one of us.
