MBG: Practices To Help You Move Toward Your True Self (And Away From Ego)

Our ego is our attachment to identity and it serves one and one purpose only: to keep us safe. But for most of us, due to societal and generational conditioning, our reptilian brain has our ego running the show. With the ego in charge, we hold ourselves back in so many ways.

Daily Dream Meaning: Paris

The “City of Lights.” If you, in fact, live in Paris, the location of the dream has little meaning, but if you don’t, it’s quite significant.
1. Paris has for two millennia been considered a major center of culture and enlightenment for the entire Western world. To dream of being in Paris, strolling through the Louvre or the Musée d’Orsay or attending the Opéra, therefore, indicates a time of learning, cultural appreciation. Visiting the great Cathedrals such as Nôtre Dame or Sacre Coeur implies spiritual progress.
2. Paris is also considered one of the happiest cities in the world. Dreaming of visiting the clubs or artistes of Montmartre or the Latin Quarter indicates an increased social life and happy times ahead.

MNN: 10 remarkable caterpillars and what they become

It’s hard not to be captivated by the fluttery fragile beauty of butterflies and moths. But the caterpillars they start from can be equally captivating.

As you’ll see, there are many different types of caterpillars. In fact, the variety of colors, shapes, camouflage markings and predator-repelling armor is truly astounding.

EarthSky News: Mercury’s greatest evening elongation around June 3-4

Mercury is to reach a milestone of sorts in the evening sky, as it reaches its greatest elongation (maximum angular distance) east of the sun (24 degrees) on June 4, 2020. Because Mercury is farthest east of the setting sun, that places Mercury in the western sky after sundown.

Inner Journey:

LOVE YOUR SHADOWS

“There is that part of ourselves that feels ugly, deformed, unacceptable. That part, above all, we must learn to cherish, embrace, and call by name.”
— Macrina Wiederkehr

Each of us has characteristics we define as good and those we define as ‘bad.’ The parts of ourselves that we continually reject want to be acknowledged and loved. Until we honour these aspects, they will continue to assert themselves. They will do whatever they can to get our attention.

What aspects of yourself do you reject?

Take a few moments to open to the parts of yourself that you do not love. See each one honestly for what it is. Explore the wounds and the motives that gave rise to its condition. Love a wounded part of yourself and it will heal.

“…self-contempt never inspires lasting change.”
— Jane R. Hirschmann and Carol H. Munter

“The first step toward change is acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That’s all you have to do. Change is not something you do, it’s something you allow.”
— Will Garcia

A Note from the Universe

What happens when someone worries?

Basically, they think of 100 reasons why something might go wrong. And all of those thoughts then struggle to become things, sometimes overriding their more constructive thoughts.

That’s the power of worry.

Now, let’s say you want something fantastic to manifest in your life.

Hypothetically, let’s say you want a beautiful vacation home. (I know you.)

Have you closed your eyes yet and imagined 100 reasons why it might come to you easily, fast, and harmoniously?

I think you should.

Today works,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom

Value
“Labor is the true standard of value.”

-Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

 
How much do we want something? How much is it worth to us? How hard are we willing to work for it? The more thought and effort we put into something, the more the universe picks up on our desire and intention and works with us to turn our dreams into reality. Sitting around and wishing is one thing, but going out and making things happen is something else altogether!

-Lissa Coffey
