Has a smile of light,
And she sits on a sapphire throne.

ThoughtCo: Spirit Guide Warning Signs
Is Your Spirit Guide Really There To Help?
Every once in a while, someone will manage to contact what they think is a spirit guide—perhaps by way of a Ouija board or other method—and the next thing you know, things are getting weird. If any of the following scenarios seem familiar, then chances are that what you’ve connected to is not a spirit guide at all.
MBG: The 15 Spiritual Practices That Helped Me Overcome Low Self-Esteem
As a teenager, my family moved from Brazil to a town in Florida, and my new high school didn’t have any role models that looked like me. My skin was a little darker than most, I had cystic acne, I didn’t speak English fluently, I was wearing clothes from a totally different culture, and at some point, I was even wearing blue eye contacts thinking that this would help me to fit it. I based my self-esteem on external circumstances and held on to the belief that if I looked like other people, I would finally feel confident. I would belong.
Pioneer Thinking: Cleansing Your Spirit Native American Style
In today’s modern world there never seems to be enough time. We rush from the time we get up until the time we go to bed. We battle traffic, work, deadlines, e-mail, family matters, and love life. Everything we have to get done in 24 hours! There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. People used to work a 40 hour week,
MNN: India’s tiger population is on the rise

EarthSky News: Orion the Hunter returns before dawn
Around late July or early August, if you’re up early and have an unobstructed view to the east, be sure to look in that direction in the hour before dawn. You might find a familiar figure – a constellation that always returns to the sky around this time of year. It’s the beautiful constellation Orion the Hunter – recently behind the sun as seen from our earthly vantage point – now ascending once more in the east before sunrise.
Patheos-Pagan: You Can’t Change the Date of Halloween, But . . . .
The internet has a tendency to make mountains out of molehills, and such is the case with a recent petition to “change the date of Halloween” from October 31 to the last Saturday of October. Currently this petition has 100,000 “signatures” on Change.org, a rather insignificant number considering that there are 350 million people living in the United States. This petition is pretty stupid for reasons I’ll outline below, and so is the over-reaction to it that I’m seeing online.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?
“He who has achieved success has worked well, laughed often and loved much.”
— Elbert Hubbard
“Too often, people focus only on results. But getting results without learning something or without having fun are incomplete. So is having fun without getting the results, or having fun without learning something new to help and empower you in the future. Accomplishment is all three: the result, personal growth and having fun.”
— Peter L. Hirsch
“There are many aspects to success; material wealth is only one component. …But success also includes good health, energy and enthusiasm for life, fulfilling relationships, creative freedom, emotional and psychological stability, a sense of well-being, and peace of mind.”
— Deepak Chopra
“You don’t have to stay up nights to succeed; you have to stay awake days.”
— Source Unknown
Today’s Deity: Psyche

She was once a mortal princess whose extraordinary beauty earned the ire of Aphrodite (Roman Venus) when men began turning their worship away from the goddess towards the girl.
A Note from the Universe
The top 10 things people claim to have taken for granted when they were alive:
1.How important they were to so many.
2.How easy life was when they stopped struggling.
3.That all of their prayers and thoughts made a difference.
4.That there really were no coincidences.
5.How far ripples of kindness actually spread.

7.That any and all dreams can come true.
8.How good-looking and fun they always were.
9.How much guidance they received at all times.
10.That God was fully present in everything, always.
As expressed by the recently departed, fresh after their life-review on the big, BIG screen.

“Trust your hunches… Hunches are usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level. Warning! Do not confuse your hunches with wishful thinking. This is the road to disaster.”
-Dr. Joyce Brothers
We can look at intuition either scientifically or spiritually, but it is there, and significantly so, nonetheless. When we get our minds involved, analyzing our hunches, that’s where we get ourselves into trouble. We think too much, when sometimes we need to just “feel.”
Daily Tarot: The Lovers
Relax, take a deep breath, and don’t let any feelings of anxiety derail your plans for the day. A certain level of nervousness may be in the air today but it doesn’t have to be contagious and you don’t have to catch it. If a touch of anxiety serves to give you a greater sense of caution, that can be a good thing.
