O thou merry month complete,
May, thy very name is sweet!

Spiritual Unite: The Journey By Chris Claxton
We came into this world from a source of light, and brought nothing with us but a hidden blueprint for this life and a soul contract agreement which again is none physical and not even held by us.
And we will, as sure as eggs are eggs, return to that source taking nothing with us but a knowledge of our time existence upon this human Earth.
MBG: 3 Reasons Mindfulness Is A Powerful Tool Against Eating Disorders
It’s a challenge for anyone to stay in the present moment. With our incessant social media scrolling, 24/7 news stream, and constant planning for the future, the distractions are omnipresent these days. For those suffering from eating disorders, a comparison mindset is one of those crippling distractions that keeps us from living in the here and now
MNN: Could baking soda be the key to fighting autoimmune disease?
Although researchers are still in the early stages of testing, a new study holds promise for people with autoimmune disorders. There’s the potential that something as simple as a daily dose of baking soda in water could reduce the inflammation of diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. But there’s still a whole lot of research to be done.

Patheos-Pagan: The Witch Who Hated Spells
The Witch who hated spells didn’t hate them for the reason you might think. This Witch was actually quite talented at creating and performing spells. They didn’t hate them because there had been a spell that had gone wrong, or perhaps too right. No no, nothing like that at all.
Inner Journey: Seek Insights
“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
INSIGHTS happen only when we shift to a higher, more inclusive perspective. As we grow in wisdom and experience, we become less attached to the form of reality and more aware of its spiritual side – its qualities, values and meaning. As we get to know ourselves as souls, we begin to let go of the self-consciousness of the ego. This allows us to more effectively include others and work with the whole picture.
When there is more in sight, we get more insights.
Try becoming aware of those times when you focus on differences. At those times, STOP and PAY ATTENTION and IDENTIFY SIMILARITIES INSTEAD. See how all parts fit into a bigger picture. Expand your perspectives. Find common causes, motives and needs. Go to another level of thinking and problem solving. Be open to using more imagination and creativity. Shift your thinking from “either/or” to “both/and” and be prepared for more insights.
“Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.”
— Andrew Schneider
“We are not what we know. We are what we are willing to learn.”
— Council on Ideas
A Note from the Universe
You could call me your friend, but that’s not quite enough. You could call me your guide, but there’s more to it than that.
You could call me your conspirator, your helper, or your agent; your coach, counselor, or confidant; your father, mother, or child. You could call me the sun, the moon, and the stars; the wind, the sky, and the rain; the past, the present, and the future.
But really, what I’m getting at, the purpose behind all these Notes, and perhaps what I’d most like to hear one day, is you calling me “yourself.”

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” -Anais Nin
Have you ever noticed that some new friends you don’t just “meet,” but you “recognize?” It’s as if we can see ourselves in that person. Maybe it’s chemistry, feeling that connection of oneness – or maybe it’s memory of a past life together or something. Whatever the reason, the discovery of this new friendship often leads to great things. Find out just why you were brought together. There are no coincidences!
