Spirit Library: Dawning of a New Age (a message from Kate Spreckley)

We are at the dawning of a new age. An age that is exposing the energetic soul blueprints we need to manifest our new reality. Our soul blueprints are an energetic framework which contains our pure potential. As such it powerfully influences every word we speak, every thought we have and every idea we hold

Daily Dream Meaning: Glove

A symbol of security.
1. If the gloves are brand-new, this symbolizes financial security.
2. If the gloves are long evening-type gloves, or gauntlets, this means security in love matters.
3. Losing gloves indicates temporary setbacks, and dirty or worn-out gloves imply difficulties, but all still imply security in the long run.


Daily Good: Into the Chrysalis

“Chrysalises both inspire and baffle me. The thought that a caterpillar can crawl into a sac made of its own body and dissolve its form and come out as a butterfly is a cliched image of transformation, but holy crap. Stop for a moment and really think about that. Does the caterpillar know this is going to happen? If it does that shows some tremendous trust. If it doesn’t, then that shows some incredible courage. It just hangs out there, isolating itself from the rest of the world and changing in ways it can never understand.” Chris Corrigan shares more in this short passage. { read more }

Be The Change

Take a moment to consider whether you are resisting or inviting your own transformation in the chrysalis of this time. What response does the butterfly’s process evoke in you?

EarthSky News: Star-hop to the Coma star cluster

Long ago, the Coma star cluster represented the Lion’s tufted tail. It is a beautiful cluster, well worth taking the time to pick out in the night sky. You can see Leo from the suburbs, but you’ll need a dark sky to find the cluster. In mid-evening now, as seen from mid-northern latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, the constellation of the Lion will be high in the southern sky. You’ll see the Lion at nightfall, too, though more in the south-southeastern portion of sky.

Pagan Playlist: Come Little Children (Sarah’s Theme) from “Hocus Pocus”


Inner Journey:


“How do we keep our inner fire alive? Two things, at minimum, are needed: an ability to appreciate the positives in our life – and a commitment to action. Every day, it’s important to ask and answer these questions: ‘What’sgood in my life?’ and ‘What needs to be done?'”
— Nathaniel Branden

I have found there’s a very different quality to my action when it springs from a sense of abundance as opposed to a feeling of being impoverished.

When I sense I’m not good enough or that I don’t have enough, I feel driven to be better and to have more. Whatever I do takes effort – there’s an element of struggle involved. And this makes sense because there’s no fuel – I’m working on an empty tank.

When I’m feeling abundant, I act out of my own inspiration. I’m rich and full and so the energy flows naturally. This action at times feels almost effortless.

It’s important to remember that we don’t need money to be abundant. All we need is appreciation of all that we have.

” …what I focus on in life is what I get. And if I concentrate on how bad I am or how wrong I am or how inadequate I am, if I concentrate on what I can’t do and how there’s not enough time in which to do it, isn’t that what I get every time? And when I think about how powerful I am, and when I think about what I have left to contribute, and when I think about the difference I can make on this planet, then that’s what I get. You see, I recognize that it’s not what happens to you; it’s what you do about it.”
— W. Mitchell

A Note from the Universe

Ever wonder why some of those who achieve incredible success, amass fortunes, and enjoy sizzling relationships seem so unlikely?

It’s because intelligence, looks, even creativity, come in a distant second place to believing. Achievers achieve because they believed they would, and so the heavens and earth were moved.

I believe in you,

Daily Wisdom
April 13, 2020

“How true Daddy’s words were when he said: ‘All children must look after their own upbringing.’ Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.”

-Anne Frank (1929-1945)
We could place blame, point fingers, wallow in pain from all the things that “should” have been “if only” blah blah blah… But there comes a time when we must stand on our own two feet and recognize that we create our own future. We create our own present. We have choices to make every day. Look within. Find that strength and move on

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The World

The World card signifies forward movement, and it reminds you that you can’t just sit back and wait for what you want to come to you. Today is the time to take action, because taking a step in any direction is better than sitting still. Work on making yourself content with who you are before you ask anyone else to take on that same monumental task.

  1. Thank you very much for always your articles, which I find very useful, educational and informative 💜 💜 💜 I have felt recently, that I am following too many unnecessary groups, so I am leaving some off. Not You 💖 ( !! ) I feel stressed, so I have to slow down a bit 😌 I am coming every day to check my posts, and continue learning from You, and some other pages. But I have to leave some nonsense -pages, which does not ‘give’ me anything. Hopefully, you keep going on here. My meaning is to learn most things which are in your ‘Morning Bits’ I think they are awesome ( !! ) No need to worry, I just do not want to become to a situation how I was on Facebook 😉 I wish to continue in my ‘speed’ And not any algorithm (this is voluntary for me, and that’s why so interesting) I just sometimes click ‘follow’ here because I think this group is interesting. And become disappointed. I don’t want to read poems, haiku, etc. But learn a real Witchcraft and especially healing 🌺 🌺 🌺


  2. And I also forgot the issue with my eyes. 👀 Staring the whole day at the computer is not so healthy 😂 The allergy season makes my eyes and nose leak water, and my eyes are constantly red. Like two tomatoes 🍅 🍅 😂 I don’t have to wear glasses normally, but when I am watching the computer -screen. And my cat needs more attention also 😿 ❤️ Like my ‘private life’ too.
