Good Morning Beautiful Souls, 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.

MBG: How To Use Essential Oils For Seasonal Allergies
When it comes down to it, seasonal allergies can be downright miserable. According to recent research, allergies are getting worse every year and scientists say it’s due to climate change. The characteristic symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever) runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, sinus pain, and a general feeling of “yuck”can be worse than the worst of colds, or even the flu! No wonder millions of people race to their local pharmacy and doctor’s office every year looking for over-the-counter and prescription medications to find some relief.
Spirituality & Health: 3 Earth-Friendly Swaps for Summer
Earth Day is over, but summer is just starting to heat up. It’s so liberating to get outside and enjoy all that Mother Nature offers, from long hikes in the woods and mountains, to swimming in beautiful beaches and lakes, and exploring desert trails. But we have to take care of Mother Nature, too, just as she cares for us. For this week, let’s look at three ways we can be nicer to the planet, all summer long
Elephant Journal: Dharma Woman: Reflections of a Modern Buddhist Woman.

Patheos-Pagan: The Ordinary Life Of A Witch – Dishes, Dinner, & Devotion
Today started out like most every other day at the Witches Next Door’s house. I woke up first and went into the kitchen. Lighting the stove with an absent minded click of my fingers, I brewed the morning coffee and filled the mugs from across the room by reciting effundam et lac. It’s one of our favourite spells. We use it all the time.
FOLLOW THROUGH AND COMPLETE
“Activity is not achievement. It is not enough to rush about beginning a lot of things and keeping busy. A well-spent life is one that rounds out what it has begun.”
— Eknath Easwaran
Intention and the words we speak are powerful. When we say we are going to do something, we set energy in motion. When we fail to act or complete our intention, we drain our energy. We lose our power.
We would be wise to choose our words carefully — to really mean what we say and to honour the commitments we have made.
“Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them.”
— Joseph Joubert
“Good to begin well, better to end well.”
— English proverb
A Note from the Universe
Some people just have big hearts. And with this gift they’re very often able to feel, offer, and show far more love than they receive from those around them. Which, at times, is a heavy load to bear. So today I’d like to remind them, and especially you, that the sun asks not that the moon and planets help brighten each day, but relishes her role as a keeper of the light and a bringer of the dawn. A role much like your own.

I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.” -Anna Freud
We are wholly complete and capable human beings. Perhaps our greatest lesson in life is to understand this. We don’t need to look outside ourselves for anything. All that we have, all that we are, is more than enough – it’s perfect!
