Spirit Library: Where Did Gaia Go? (a message from Pepper Lewis)

Q) Years ago, I followed your communications with Gaia closely. Later on, I lost touch, which was okay because I had learned from you how to have my own relationship with Mother Earth.

ThoughtCo: Purple Dead Nettle

Like many of the herbs that we can use in magic, purple dead nettle is, for all intents and purposes, a weed. It will take over a spring garden in no time at all, spreading with wild abandon through your yard. So why not take advantage of its folklore and magic, and use it in your workings? It’s a handy little herb to harvest.

MBG: Is There A “Right” Way To Shuffle Tarot Decks For More Accurate Pulls?

For centuries, people have been using tarot for divination, reflection, and self-inquiry. Reading your tarot cards can be as simple as asking your deck a question, pulling one or more cards, and then interpreting the potential answers they hold. But before you pull your card(s), it’s a good idea to clear the slate from past readings by shuffling your deck. Here’s how to master your shuffle, according to the mystics.

Daily Dream Meaning: Egyptian

1. Dreaming of living in ancient Egypt might actually be a past-life memory. Be sure to write the dream down immediately upon awakening, as an issue from that past life could be coming to the surface of your unconscious mind. Something in the dream probably relates to a concern in the present, and the dream may be giving you important insights.
2. Egypt is a land of mystery, and therefore if you dream of Egypt or things Egyptian there is probably some mystery in your life that you’d like to have resolved. Look to other symbols in the dream to discern what it is and what you should do about it.
3. Egypt is a land where a lot of secrets are being dug out of the ground. What secrets are you hiding? Or are others around you keeping things from you that you really need to know? If the other symbols in the dream support this idea, honest communication with those involved is definitely called for.


Karma Tube: SUPERHERO: A Music Video for Our Times

In times of global crises, it becomes increasingly clear that our lives are sustained by millions of gestures, big and small made by everyday people who simply show up to do their little bit, day after day in service of the greater good. This newly released music video ‘Superhero’ is an ode to everyone in our world who lives like “we are the ones we have been waiting for.” { read more }

Elephant Journal: The Shadow in Me Honors the Shadow in You

The only person I’m hanging out with these days seems to be my shadow side.
From the moment I wake up, there is a wave of grief and mourning for the world I used to know. There is jealousy and spite that arises when I see people on social media “doing more than me,” and there is unmistakable rage whenever I stumble into a news portal.

MNN: Fisherman visits dolphin every day to make up for the missing tourists

Fungie is no stranger to solitude.

Since the bottlen-nosed dolphin was first spotted in Irish waters back in 1983, he’s almost never seen with even a single friend. Fungie is so famed for his solo act, even Guinness World Records has taken notice, naming him the world’s longest-lived solitary dolphin.

Pagan Playlist: The Hobbit (Part 1): ‘Song Of Durin’ by Eurielle – Lyric Video (Lyrics by J.R.R. Tolkien)


Inner Journey:


“Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.”
— David O. McKay

I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I’ve come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can’t know what’s best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

“The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.”
— Samuel Butler

“What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky

A Note from the Universe
You’re dreaming-g-g-g.

Dreaming of lavender fields, turquoise seas, and emerald isles. Mountains that rise and fall, oceans that heave and sigh, and jungles that give and take.

You’ve dreamed up heaven and earth. All of the people and all of the places. What’s “good” and what’s not. What you like and what you don’t.

You’ve dreamed of me, and of yourself, and of things you no longer remember, yet they, too, carry on.

Yet as meticulous as you’ve been, there are some things, I dare say, that are too often forgotten, that you’re dreaming, that you’re free, and that the dreamer is always greater than their dream.

Daily Wisdom
May 11, 2020

“True consistency, that of the prudent and the wise, is to act in conformity with circumstances.”

-John C. Calhoun (1782-1850)


This is interesting to think about – so many times we look at consistency as a virtue. And it is in some situations. But when we look at the “big picture” we see how things change, and so why wouldn’t our minds change with the times? For example, we might start out with an allegiance to a particular political party, only to change our minds and vote another way come election time. Is that being inconsistent? I don’t think so. The consistency comes with being true to ourselves.

-Lissa Coffey
