ThoughtCo: Chakra Symbols and Sanskrit Names

Chakras are our energy centers. These openings allow our life energy to flow into and out of our aura. The seven major chakras are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions. The first chakra (root) actually hangs outside of your body. It is located between your thighs, about halfway between your knees and your physical body.

MBG: 5 Ways To Detox Your Frazzled Mind & Feel Totally Refreshed

We always hear messages about the importance of periodically detoxing our bodies, but when was the last time someone urged you to detox your thoughts and mind? Probably never. It’s my goal to change that. As a holistic psychologist, I’ve seen how our mental well-being is completely connected to our physical well-being, and how mentally cleaning house can be incredibly rejuvenating and beneficial for overall health.

Daily Good: Wild Imagination

“Anguish over the diminishment of our world, the destruction of Earths life support systems, and the extinction of species is deep in our shared human psyche, though largely unexpressed. So many of us can only dimly imagine our way through the psychic and physical debris to a regenerated, thriving, Earth community. Yet the mysterious human imagination itself may be our best resource for experiential recovery of a vibrant, participatory, and wildly sacred Earth.” Geneen Marie Haugen shares more. { read more }

Elephant Journal: A Sacred Morning Ritual that leaves us Grounded AF.

Mindful ritual is an important aspect of daily life.
It is centering, and it transports our consciousness to realms of expanded possibility.

Many spiritual traditions emphasize ritual—it is a matter of connection to what powers us, inside out.

Today’s Deity: Khnum

Khnum (Khnemu, Khenmu, Khenmew, Chnum) was one of the most ancient gods of Egypt, whose worship is thought to have been popular as early as the Predynastic Period. References from the Pyramid Texts of Unas confirm that his worship was long established even at that early stage and the Old Kingdom pharaoh Khufu (the builder of the Great Pyramid) was actually called “Khnum-Khufu” (“Khnum is his Protector”).

EarthSky News: Delta Aquariid meteors peak around now

This week presents the nominal peak of the Delta Aquariid meteor shower. That supposed peak comes during the predawn hours on or near July 28, 2019. Should you set your alarm and get up to watch the shower? Maybe. However, the Delta Aquariids are a long, rambling shower, stretching out out for weeks beyond their nominal peak

Inner Journey:

WHAT IS LOVE?

“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully — in the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is to act. If you really love, from the depths of your Consciousness, that love gives youa native wisdom. You perceive the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way. Such is the immense, drivingpower of love.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness,a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”
— Robert A. Johnson

“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, andwhen the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

A Note from the Universe

Having a dream is awesome.

Having a dream and showing up every day, even when nothing seems to be happening, is priceless.

But having a dream and showing up every day, while sauntering, winking, and hugging everyone, is when the floodgates begin to tremble.
Hugs,

The Universe

Luck

“How can you say luck and chance are the same thing? Chance is the first step you take, luck is what comes afterwards.”
-Amy Tan, The Kitchen God’s Wife, 1991

We need to be ready and willing to take that chance when it comes along – seize the day – take hold of the opportunity! And then, see what happens! Whether or not it turns out the way we had hoped, maybe that has something to do with luck. But we’ll never know unless we try. And we’ll learn and grow and stretch ourselves by taking those chances – and isn’t that lucky anyway?

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

The world may seem to be working overtime to baffle or confuse you, but you don’t have to take the bait. If you’re offered something that seems too perfectly tailored to your tastes or desires, it’s OK to be graciously skeptical. You can appear cautious rather than distrustful. Keep things simple today and minimize getting upset by torn or unsettled feelings.
