O summer day beside the joyous sea!
O summer day so wonderful and white,
So full of gladness, and so full of pain!
Forever and forever shalt thou be–
To some the gravestone of a dead delight,
To some the landmark of a new domain.”
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-82)

MBG: 8 Types Of Earth Angels & How To Decide Which One(s) You Are

As a professional intuitive, I’ve done readings with thousands of people all over the world from all walks of life. Many of the clients who seek me out are sensitive HSPs and/or empaths. Among these hyper-perceptive clients who pick up easily on subtle physical stimuli (the noise in a room) or even emotional and energic stimuli (the happiness of the lovers strolling down the street), I started to notice a dominant soul archetype among certain sensitive clients—the earth angel. Earth angels aren’t more or less worthy, or more or less enlightened, than other people…just a little different

Treehugger: Why Giant Pandas Are Still at Risk

Long the face of the conservation movement, giant pandas were upgraded from “endangered” to “vulnerable” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Endangered Species In September 2016. The listing change followed a 17% increase in the population in China from 2004 to 2014. There are an estimated 1,800 pandas left in the wild with the numbers increasing.

EarthSky News: Go someplace dark and watch meteors!

Tonight – July 24, 2020 – and in the coming nights, treat yourself to one of nature’s spectacles. Every year, people look forward to the August Perseid meteor shower. And it’s wonderful, with regular rates of about 60 meteors per hour at its peak. The Perseids are gearing up even now, so if you go outside between midnight and dawn tonight or this weekend, you might see a few. But there’s another meteor shower happening now, too. It’s the Delta Aquarid meteor shower.

Inner Journey:


“The purpose of therapy is not to remove suffering but TO MOVE THROUGH IT to an enlarged consciousness that can sustain the polarity of painful opposites.”
— James Hollis

How do we support others who are suffering?

When we understand how soul works through us, we begin to see how pain generates the impulse to change. We see that our aim in supporting someone is NOT to get rid of their pain and suffering. Instead, we want to assist them to understand what the pain is trying to teach them — to find meaning in their distress.

Often, all we need do is be fully present to them. It also helps to be present to our own experience and genuine in our feelings. Living our own truth helps create the space for the other person to live theirs.

“The first duty of love is to listen.”
— Paul Tillich

“With the gift of listening comes the gift of healing.”
— Catherine de Hueck Doherty

Daily Wisdom
July 23, 2020

“All social and political problems are interwoven – that energy, for example, affects economics, which in turn affects health, which in turn affects education, work, family life, and a thousand other things. The attempt to deal with neatly defined problems in isolation from one another … creates only confusion and disaster.”
-Alvin Toffler

All problems are interwoven because we are all connected. We function as a society much in the same way that the human body functions as an organism. Each of our organs depends on the others for its well-being. We can’t separate out one part without experiencing some consequences in another part, which ultimately affects the whole. So, just as we take care of our bodies holistically, we must care for our communities, and understand how our actions, both positive and negative, affect the world as a whole.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Strength

Act with boldness, but not too much, and make this an easy and productive day. If something challenging or unexpected arises at work or with family, be receptive and stand your ground. Don’t push back until you know what it is you’re up against. Then if needed, give as well as you get. You can do this tactfully.
