EarthSky News: Moon near Jupiter, plus a Venus milestone

On August 17, 2018, a glance up into the evening sky will show you a bright planet near the moon. That planet is Jupiter, biggest world in our solar system by far (more massive than all the other planets combined). The moon is now in the process of passing all four planets in the evening sky, starting with Venus earlier this week.

Patheos-Pagan: Toxic Positivity Culture: Why Pagans, Polytheists, & Occultists Should Guard Against It

“You attract what you are.”
“Everything happens for a reason.”
I’ve seen a variety of these sorts of phrases. They’re typically found in the New Age and LoA (Law of Attraction) communities, but it’s not unusual for pagans, polytheists, and occultists to fall under the trap of this type of thinking. A lot of this tends to stem from the notion that intent is everything (or at the very least the main thing) which you need in magic, therefore if you “just think positively” your magic won’t fail.

Inner Journey: 

HEAL THE PAST

“What you bring forth out of yourself from the inside will save you. What you do not bring forth out of yourself from the inside will destroy you.”
— Gospel of Thomas

We can transform painful memories by re-imagining them from the soul’s perspective of love and meaning.

Andrew Schneider says that all experiences have the purpose of serving the soul. An experience in the past blocked us because our fear at the time distorted our perception of what happened. To transform this limiting experience, we must bring what was thenunconscious into the soul’s realm through consciousness.

We can do this by following these steps:
1.RECALL the past experience that might inhibit us.
2.OWN the experience (no judgment, blame, etc.).
3.TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for it and the consequences (i.e., the experience was determined by my subjective perception of what occurred, dictated by my lack of wholeness — specifically my fears).
4.GIVE IT MEANING (the soul was attempting to gain some kind of mastery or skill, but we didn’t know that at the time).
5.RE-IMAGINE it from the perspective of soul consciousness (showing its higher purpose).

“Letting go of our suffering is the hardest work we will ever do. It is also the most fruitful. To heal means to meet ourselves in a new way — in the newness of each moment where all is possible and nothing is limitedto the old.”
— Stephen Levine

A Note from the Universe

An earth changing idea, the clutch comeback, or the deal of a lifetime. Finding the frog before he turns into a prince, Cinderella only days before the ball, or getting in on a ground floor opportunity, at the ground floor.

These are the result of:

A. Astute observations, keen intellects, and lengthy preparations?

OR

B. Someone starting an adventure with a desired-end clearly in mind, enabling me to work “backwards” from the vision impressed upon the unseen, to the facts and circumstances of their life today; pushing and squeezing, nipping and tucking, deducing and maneuvering all of their evolving circumstances so that everything is tied together in a series of accidents, coincidences, and surprises that appear so uncanny, people everywhere are utterly stupefied by their luck?

(Wink. Wink. Rhymes with “me”).

The Bright Side: Cat’s Angel Message for August 17, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

The Bright Side: Cat’s Angel Message for August 17, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow. – Abraham Lincoln


817:  Our power of positive thought comes into play today. it helps to propel us forward and aids our overall creation and manifestation process. The angels are telling us to pay attention to our thoughts today because they will be the key to unlock new doors along our path. Be ready to make the most of what will be offered, hesitation may cause you to miss out. Remember, whether the offerings are a new crop of tiny miracles or the whole enchilada it is our positive and creative mind that will help us to achieve our goals!


The angel Barakiel promotes a change of attitudes. He shows us the way to receive with a grateful heart so that we are open to the blessings that come to us. The Ascended Master Saint Germain surrounds us with loving protection. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things and the bright energy of the  Celtic Goddess Brigid burns away what what stands in our way of embracing our divine potential. She says “Hope and optimism shine like the sun and like the sun they hold powerful energy. This energy will help you find your way.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are: Rose Quartz helps to give our emotions a lift by cleansing and clearing them of negative impurities. Sky blue Larimar promotes peace, love and tranquility as it helps you to connect with the divine realms and Lepidolite helps us to focus on the important things and filter out any distractions that come knocking.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: August 17, 2018 “Nurture=Flourish”

 

Happy Friday,

Our lives and minds are like gardens that we must take care of. Our thoughts and relationships (with self and others) often require focused “gardening”.  Work on them a little each day by “pulling weeds, sowing new thought seeds, and gently tending them”. This will produce the results needed to make our lives amazing and  rich beyond imagining.

Daily Good: Eager: The Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter

A beaver is a change agent. They build a dam, create a pond, then over the course of years, the pond fills in, becomes a wetland, wet meadow and the cycle starts again. Humans like things static, which is one reason beavers and humans have not gotten along. We have fundamentally different visions of how the landscape is supposed to work. The consequences have been the decimation of the beaver population resulting in a profound loss of habitat. In his book, Eager, environmental journalist Ben Goldfarb explores the deleterious effects removing these essential animals has had and how bringing them back can help us solve all sorts of problems. His book not only opens the reader to seeing beavers as industrious, brilliant engineers worthy of endless observation, but is a gateway into a love, devotion and connection with nature. { read more }

Elephant Journal: Why Adventure is Essential to our Evolution.

When I was a child, playing alone in the living room on my twelfth round of Pac Man after having read the “dirty” parts of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret for the fifth time, I made a promise to myself that when I grew up, I would never—ever—feel bored again.

Patheos-Pagan: Making Magick with Resistance

I was in a funk last week. I don’t remember why. Maybe I’d read too many articles about climate change. Maybe I’d heard “45” talk too much that day. Maybe I’d simply spent too much time on Facebook. I’m part of the Resistance–I think? Are we even still calling it that? I was feeling much more hopeless than #resist-full. I thought if I ran errands I’d feel accomplished and therefore, better.

Inner Journey: 

FORGIVE THE HURTS

“Forgiveness will never fail to free you.”
— Jerrold Mundis

How do we forgive when we’re angry and hurt?

As a first step, we can be willing to truly feel our anger and hurt. Honouring our feelings by being fully present with them helps to release the feelings themselves.

And it helps to remember that people only hurt others when they themselves are in pain. When we can recognize the other person’s suffering, our heart can open in compassion. We can also remember that at some time or another, we too have hurt someone throughour own unskilful action.

Only love can heal the rifts caused by a hurtful deed. Forgiveness holds immense power because it mends separation. It moves us towards the unity and love that lie at the core of our being. It is a fundamental part of the healing process.

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.”
— Paul Boese

“God has a big eraser.”
— Billy Zeoli

Today’s Recipe: Blooming French Strawberry Tart

Many of my family members live in France. One thing I look forward to having every time I visit is the classic French fruit tart. It’s got a delicate crust topped with a custardy pastry cream (crème pâtissière), with fruit arranged beautifully on top to resemble a blooming flower. I finally learned how to make it myself so I don’t have to long for it between visits. It’s worth the effort, and I hope you give it a try!

Success

“Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”

-John Wooden

With this definition, it doesn’t matter what industry you work in, or how much money you make. It doesn’t matter where you grew up or who you know. This says that success is all a matter of our own efforts, and how we see how we are doing. And it leaves room to say that we are “becoming” – which is great, because we are all changing, and growing, and succeeding every day, every minute!

-Lissa Coffey

Welcoming the New: Cat’s Angel Message for August 16, 2018

Welcoming the New: Cat’s Angel Message for August 16, 2018 

August Theme:  Prosperity and abundance is what we are concentrating on prosperity and abundance this month. The key will be keeping a positive focus and tapping into your creative side to solve problems. Remember that you are a powerful creator and all that you need is within your grasp!


Mostly, it is human to dislike surprises – often with great intensity. Be open to new ways; sometimes newness just knocks on our door; welcome it. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


816: As we know,  our thoughts play an important role in our ability to manifest the things we need, both within ourselves and in our lives. By embracing a positive attitude we are effectively setting out the “Welcome” mat to help draw all the things that will enrich our lives. But first we have to let go of the negative thought patterns. Today, the Universe is suggesting that we take some time to sweep off the step and shake out our “Welcome ” mat to release any lingering negativity that is hanging around or lurking in corners. Take a deep breath, give yourself a big hug and affirm that you are worthy of receiving prosperity and abundance and allow yourself to welcome them with an open heart!


 Gadiel is one of the angels of abundance.  He shows us the way to maintaining a positive attitude by releasing negative and limiting beliefs. His guidance can help you to transform your life. The Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be a healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of things that have held us back. Along the way we unearth talents that we had set aside, which will help us to move forward. And the Irish Goddess Dana  tells us that, “While you wait for these blessings to arrive fill your heart with feelings of abundance. Engage yourself in things that make you feel abundant!” ….. ” Your energy is linked to the energy of the Divine. Acknowledge and strengthen this connection as it allows you to handcraft your dreams.”


Our Sacred Stones for today:  Agate. This humble stone is the perfect one for grounding and balancing our energies. It also helps by raising our consciousness to access our higher self and promoting the awareness and acceptance of who we are and where we want to go in life. It nurtures our spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to the most of our life experiences. Or you can use  Mahogany Obsidian to clear up blocked energy or Smoky Quartz to help release negative energy.

MBG: Are Your Self-Care Rituals Making You Unhappy? This Doctor Thinks So 

‘m a holistic psychiatrist, so when patients walk through my door, they’re usually already A+ students when it comes to yoga, meditation, eating clean, taking Epsom salt baths, and surrounding themselves with essential oils and salt lamps. Who am I to call any of these lovely practices and rituals into question? I do many of them myself!
And yet, I’ve often wondered if there are times when we do so much self-care that, ironically, it starts to get in the way of our ability to take care of ourselves and can actually contribute to burnout.

After sunset on August 14 to 16, 2018, look west to see three brilliant worlds – the moon, Venus and Jupiter – beautifying the evening twilight. Each successive evening, after sunset, watch for the waxing crescent moon to move away from Venus and closer to Jupiter. This daily eastward movement of the moon relative to the background stars and planets of the zodiac is due to the moon’s motion in orbit around Earth.

MNN: The surprising beauty and benefits of driftwood

Trees are pillars of their communities, a role they can maintain even in death. An upright dead tree offers vital habitat to certain birds and bats, for example, while a fallen tree is a bonanza for life on the forest floor, including future trees.

Yet rotting in place is not the only natural afterlife for a tree. Sometimes, instead of giving back to its birth forest, a tree will embark on an odyssey to pay it forward, carrying its ecological wealth away from the only home it has ever known

WHAT ARE YOU PROCRASTINATING?

“The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.”
— Dawson Trotman

Procrastination seriously drains our energy and our morale. What remains undone nags at us. What are you avoiding?

Make a list of items and then review each one. Does it really need to be done? After you’ve reviewed your list, prioritize it and start one task today.

Please do not procrastinate taking one minute to write down your answer to this question. Capture it on paper and this will help build awareness, commitment and discipline.

“How soon not now, becomes never.”
— Martin Luther

“Talk does not cook rice.”
— Chinese proverb

“Do you know what happens when you give a procrastinator a good idea? Nothing!”

Today’s Recipe: Summer Squash Lasagne 

I had a big summer squash, leftover turkey breast, and leftover cheese. I decided to try putting them together lasagne style, and was pleased with the results. The squash replaces the noodles, so it is low in carbs. You can vary the cheeses, meats, and seasonings. I had basil and kale, so I added them in as well. If I had have ricotta or cottage cheese I would have used that, too.
