Orion starseeds came to earth during the 60’s to the 90’s. They were the ones paving the way for many young people who had no direction in life.

This week, we’re moving out of Cancer season.

Gather ’round that beach bonfire! The Sun spends its final six days of 2018 in sentimental Cancer, sounding the call for warm-fuzzy bonding. There’s rarely a better time than this for huddling close with your inner circle peeps, whether you share DNA or have adopted them as “chosen family.”

Elephant Journal: 11 Ways to Raise your Vibration—and thereby, Humanity’s. 

By raising our consciousness, we rise above partisan disagreements and the need to perpetuate drama. We rise above our little selves watching or reading the news and seeing the endless, outrageous narrative for what it is: lies. By expanding our consciousness, we can lift up own vibration—and maybe, just maybe, inspire others to do the same.

MNN: Bee Saving Paper gives bees an energy boost 

There’s a quote on the homepage of the Bee Saving Paper website attributed to Charles Darwin: “The life of man would be made extremely difficult if the bee disappeared.”

He was right about that. When a Whole Foods store pulled all the food out of the produce section that relied all pollinators, 52 percent of the department’s foods were carted away to illustrate the devastating hit our food system would take if bees disappeared.

EarthSky News: Altair and Aquila the Eagle 

In the east after dark on these July evenings, look near the horizon for Altair, the brightest star in the constellation Aquila the Eagle. This is the bottom star of the Summer Triangle; that is, it’s the last of these three bright stars to ascend over the horizon.

Patheos-Pagan: What It Means to be On the Side of the Gods 

Like theists of all varieties, in times of trouble we call on our Gods. We ask for Their blessings, Their inspiration, and Their protection. Most times They give it to us, in one form or another. Their presence is a source of great comfort and strength – particularly for those of us who formed and maintained on-going relationships with one or more deities before things got bad.

Inner Journey 

LEARN TO LET GO

“To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.”
— Lao Tzu

How do we take something away? As we cultivate higher awareness, we begin to see just how much we have added things that really aren’t there to our picture of reality. Our beliefs, concepts and emotions all add layers of meaning to physical reality, but that meaning exists for us only – it has no objective existence. For example, the word ‘mother’ has a complicated network of meaning for each of us.

Become aware of how your beliefs and emotions colour your perception of different events in your life. See if you can begin to step out of your fabrications to experience the truth and spaciousness of what is.

“When guilt rears its ugly head confront it, discuss it and let it go. The past is over. … Forgive yourself and move on.”
— Bernie S. Siegel

A Note from the Universe

“Reality,”  is not that you are weak, and dream of becoming strong. Poor, and dream of becoming rich. Alone, and dream of having friends. But that you’re already strong, rich, and among friends. Yet, at times, dream that you’re not.

Silly,

The Universe

Enthusiasm

“All we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”

-Charles Kingsley

There are so many things that we could be enthusiastic about, but do we let ourselves get worked up? Too often we hold back, we say we don’t want to “get our hopes up” or we’re afraid to jump into something when we might fall back on our behinds. But there’s a reason why we get enthusiastic about the things that we get enthusiastic about – and that’s to lead us toward happiness! Enthusiasm is a cue for us to participate, get involved, “just do it!”

-Lissa Coffey
