Then came fair May, the fairest maid on ground,
Decked all with dainties of her season’s pride,
And throwing flowers out of her lap around:
Upon two brethrens’ shoulders she did ride,
The twins of Leda, which on either side
Supported her like to their sovereign Queen.
-Edmund Spenser (1522-99)

“Self-contempt never inspires lasting change.”
— Jane R. Hirschmann & Carol H. Munter
The journey to know ourselves ideally brings us to self-understanding and acceptance. It is NOT a quest for self-improvement.
When we open to love and accept ourselves, no matter what, we allow our innate love, power and wisdom to emerge naturally.
“Who you really are is enough.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer
A Note from the Universe
You’re not supposed to be able to see it with your eyes first. It wouldn’t be called “manifesting” if you could.

“Right living is a way to right thinking.”
-Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972)
It all works together. Just like diet and exercise – we need both to stay in shape! How we live and how we think are intricately linked. Are we living the life we want to live; are we thinking the thoughts we want to think? “The good life” to me is living in integrity, in love, in balance. Thinking thoughts that encourage those things helps to strengthen them in our lives. The diet is our thoughts; the exercise is our actions.
Daily Tarot: Death
Transformation is eminent. Through Death comes new life, and although there is an ending in sight, it will give you a chance to gain something new: perspective, consciousness, a better or new relationship, etc. Once you accept that all things must experience endings or changes in order for new things to begin, the healing progress can start and you can take the first step on your new journey.
