MBG: These Essential Oils Will Make You Fall Asleep Faster – And Help You Stay Asleep All Night Long

Is there anything worse than insomnia? Whether it’s chronic or situational depending on stress levels, there’s nothing worse than lying awake all night with your mind racing, wondering if you’ll ever get to sleep as the minutes tick by. Trust me, I’ve been there, and it’s the worst. Enter a fix I never saw coming but am so, so glad I found: A co-worker handed me essential oils, and my sleep (and life) has never been the same.

Spotting the signs of an enlightened person can be hard.

There is no rulebook, no style guide, no instruction manual for enlightenment – so; unfortunately, the enlightened don’t come with a handy product description.

EarthSky News: Halley’s Comet’s 2 meteor showers

It’s because comets like Halley are so crumbly that we see annual meteor showers. One shower spawned by this comet is going on now. Another is visible in October.

Patheos-Pagan: Shifting Perspectives With The Hanged Man

Over the years I’ve picked up many different techniques of interpretation with tarot readings in my tarot practice. I’ve developed a method that mixes traditional interpretations with unconventional methods, intuition, and psychic ability. Each tarot card can mean many different things and the traditional meanings have evolved and shifted several times over its history.

Inner Journey: 
PURPOSE BRINGS JOY

“Our purpose is hidden in our joy, our inspiration, our excitement. As we act on what shows up in our life our purpose shows up.”
— James King

For many of us, our joy is truly activated when we get a bigger picture of who we are and why we are here.

Most of us need to enlarge our self-concept. We may see ourselves as a bag of bones but, in truth, we are eternal, multi-faceted and multi-dimensional spiritual beings having a human experience. It’s time to think of ourselves as much larger and grander than just a physical and emotional being confined in a body.

“There is no more important step you can take than to define your life’s purpose. It develops your sense of belonging to our universe.”
— Arnold Patent

A Note from the Universe

No need to regret or even think twice about a single silly (or worse) thing you’ve ever thought, said, or done,  because all of it will one day be used to your great advantage, if it hasn’t been already.

How’s that for putting “U” in Universe?

Friendship

“However deep our devotion may be to parents, or to children, it is our contemporaries alone with whom understanding is instinctive and entire.” -Vera Britain, Testament of Youth (1933)

Some people say that we can’t choose our parents or our children, but we can choose our friends. I don’t know if that is entirely true. I think there is some reason we have the family that we have, either by divine agreement or for learning purposes. I also think that our friends are our friends for a reason, too. We’re making choices all the time, and our friends are making choices, too. And somehow, those choices brought us together. And because we are brought together, we grow. We experience more of what life is about. Understanding is huge! To find a friend who truly understands is a magnificent gift.

Beliefnet: 5 Buddhist Teachings All People Can Practice

As Westerners have become increasingly interested in meditation and mindfulness practices, they have become more and more interested in the religions that are most often associated with meditation and mindfulness. Eastern spirituality has received unexpected attention from people who want to lower stress levels and learn to keep themselves in the present moment. Yoga classes have exploded and being or feeling zen has become accepted vernacular.
