ThoughtCo: How To Draw Down the Moon

What is Drawing Down the Moon?
In this beautiful and powerful rite, the practitioner invokes the Goddess directly into herself (or himself, as the case may be). In some variations, a High Priestess (HPs) may go into a trancelike state and speak the words of the Goddess, or it may be a formal monologue calling upon the Goddess in her many forms.

Inner Happy Hour: Poetry Practice

Poem: take an ache, make it sing
BY TYLER KNOTT GREGSON

Poetry gives us a chance to express ourselves in a unique and profound way. Poet, photographer, and artist Tyler Knott Gregson insists, “It does not matter what the song sounds like, it does not matter what the lyrics end up being, it’s just giving all the aches in you, the positive and the negative, the space to realize themselves.”

Elephant Journal: Astrological Forecast: the Best way to Make Use of May’s Full Moon.

The planets in the sky are always bringing us lessons, wisdom, and guidance.
Whether the teachings are smooth or difficult depends on who you talk to, but the “effortless versus arduous” question is largely tied up in the amount of resistance we feel to wanting to do the work presented.

A Note from the Universe

It’s time we had that little talk.

You know, about life, how it started, and where it might go…

First, there were a few thoughts.

Then, there were a few things.

Yeah, that’s what we said, “Wow!” But after eons and eons the novelty wore off because absolutely nothing ever changed.

Until there were new thoughts.

Get the picture?

Learning

“A primary method of learning is to go from the familiar to the unfamiliar.”

-Glenn Doman, How to Teach Your Baby to Read, 1964

Simple steps. And yet the unfamiliar often scares us, so that first step is the most difficult! Why not just step into the unknown? If we really want to grow, we’ve got to learn, and that means that we might have to start doing things differently to make space for that in our lives. No risk, no reward.

-Lissa Coffey
