Spiritual Unite: Physical Signs Of Being A Witch – Another Way To Identify

The physical signs of being a witch are often underplayed in favor of mental and metaphysical signs.
Some people even claim that there are no physical signs at all.

ThoughtCo: The Egyptian God Thoth

Thoth (pronounced “Toth,” rhyming with “both,” rather than with “goth”) was one of the most important deities of ancient Egyptian religion and worship. Thoth was known as the tongue of Ra, who had cursed him, and he often spoke on Ra’s behalf.

MBG: 3 Actionable Ways To Find Moments Of Stillness In Jam-Packed Days

Many of us struggle to hear our intuition, our inner voice. If that’s the case, you might just label yourself “not intuitive” or assume your intuition is unreliable. I disagree. Everyone is intuitive to some degree, but many of us find it difficult to access this inner knowing because we live in a society that glorifies being busy.

Daily Good: Green Renaissance
In a culture where it can be difficult to sift through all the online media noise, Green Renaissance is creating content that captures the human spirit and reminds us that there is always something for which to be grateful. After becoming frustrated with the bombardment of negative messages being shared online, filmmakers Justine and Michael of South Africa decided to create one new short film a week that serves as an inspiration to pay attention to the daily graces that are evident all around us. “What we came to realize through our filmmaking journey over the years is that the world is filled with ordinary people who have extraordinary stories to share,” says Justine. Read more to learn how these two artists are using their gifts for the greater good. { read more } http://www.dailygood.org/story/2386/green-renaissance-the-gratefulness-team/

Elephant Journal: What “Micro-Meditation” is & why we Should all be Doing It.

Some of us can feel far from the lofty goal of daily, involved yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation for long periods of time in the morning and afternoon.
I have caught glimpses of the potential of these practices, but find it nearly impossible to uphold this. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean that we can’t include small doses of mindfulness in our day-to-day experiences

EarthSky News: Close-up on Cassiopeia the Queen

Tonight – or any autumn evening – Cassiopeia the Queen can be found in the northeast after sunset. This constellation has the distinctive shape of a W, or M, depending on the time of night you see it. The shape of this constellation makes Cassiopeia’s stars very noticeable. Look for the Queen, starting at nightfall or early evening.

Patheos-Pagan: The Autumn Equinox Could Be Your Favorite Sabbat

The Autumn Equinox is not my favorite sabbat, but it could be. At the very least I think it’s under-appreciated. Some of that under-appreciation could be because of the popularity of Samhain (Let’s get September over with and get to late October!), or it might be related to the lack of other holidays happening concurrently around September 20. (The most popular Pagan sabbats generally overlap with prominent holidays in the over-culture, such as Christmas, Halloween, and Easter.)

Inner Journey:

ORDINARY CAN BE AWESOME

“Everything in life can be nourishing. Everything can bless us, but we’ve got to be there for the blessing to occur. Being present with quality is a decision we are invited to make each day.”
— MacRina Wiederkehr

Spirit is not only found in holy places, prayer and meditation, yoga and retreats. It is everywhere — in your relationships, your work, your daily chores, in nature … if you are willing to connect deeply with your environment.

Open to connect with something and you open to its essence, its purpose and meaning. There are other dimensions of reality below what we normally see and hear. Open to the mystery.

“We live in a world of theophanies. Holiness comes wrapped in the ordinary. There are burning bushes all around you. Every tree is full of angels. Hidden beauty is waiting in every crumb. Life wants to lead you from crumbs to angels, but this can happen only if you are willing to unwrap the ordinary by staying with it long enough to harvest its treasure.”
— Macrina Wiederkehr

Language

“Language is power… Language can be used as a means of changing reality.”

-Adrienne Rich

The words we say carry weight, carry meaning. And it’s not only which words we say but the way that we say them, too. Look at the “spin” that can be put on things in advertisements and in political speeches. There are ways that we can make this concept work for us in our spiritual growth. Affirmations, for example. We use words and language to change our thinking, and we can change our lives. We create our own reality.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Hermit
It might be a busy day, but try to make some time for yourself. Any time you spend meditating or settling your mind will be time well spent. It doesn’t have to be spent sitting around and being idle all day. Staring pensively into that cup of tea for a few moments can be equally beneficial. Calm your mind, and your heart, and make it an at-peace day.
