MBG: The Simple Self-Care Tool That Will Help You Fully Embrace The Fall

Elephant Journal: How the Average Soul can use Desperation to Change their Lives.
Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend and we were talking about what inspires healing.
I asked, “What inspired you to embark on your healing journey.” She said, “I was desperate.”
Her harmful and anxiety-ridden beliefs were playing in her mind like a broken record and her negative self-talk was at an all-time high. She was in a loop and she felt trapped.

Patheos-Pagan: A Witch’s Ghost Story: The Graveyard Visitation
The wyrd part of being a witch is that “ghost stories” can be pretty normal, and they happen all year round, not just at Halloween. It isn’t everyday that I have an interactive conversation with my dead ancestors, but with the help of Spiritual Mediums, they do occasionally happen in mind-blowing ways. This is the story of when my Grandmother Frances died one May right around Beltane. Before her body was even laid to rest, her “ghost” came to find me and wish me farewell.
SELF TALK IS REVEALING
“If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words.”
— Chinese Proverb
What passes over your lips each day?
Are your words typically negative, critical, gossiping, deceptive, illusory, justifying, blaming, manipulative and argumentative? Are they more uplifting, inspirational, positive, questioning, beautiful, loving, universal, truthful, accepting and supportive?
The throat is our center of expression. Who we are sneaks out in our attitudes and in what we say.
“Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs.”
— Pearl Strachan Hurd
“The wise weigh their words on a scale with gold.”

“Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another.”
-John Muir (1838-1914)
Who taught the grass to grow, or the bird to sing? Who makes the wind blow, or told the lion roar? It is nature. It is nature being true to Itself. Does the bird aspire to roar? Or the lion “really want to direct?” We can learn from nature, to be true to ourselves, to let our natural talents and instincts shine in endless song. And then, to grow and change and go with the flow, knowing that all of our roles in this life eventually turn from one beautiful form into another.
