ThoughtCo: Choosing Crystals
Most people who want to use crystals have a particular purpose in mind. Although some families of minerals are more likely to yield the desired result, not all specimens from the same family have similar properties, whether physical (such as fluorescence) or metaphysical (such as healing). Additionally, not everyone reacts the same way when exposed to a crystal.
MBG: A Mindful Outdoor Meditation, Inspired By Plant Geometry & Nature’s Healing Powers
Behind every disease pattern is an energetic signal, a pulse that is calling out, a rupture, a crack in the fabric of our being, and it is this the plant is responding to. By tuning in to the energetics of plants and aligning our vibration with theirs, we can, through sympathetic resonance, receive their healing and wisdom.

Treehugger: 10 Interesting Facts About American Green Tree Frogs
The American green tree frog is a staple of summer nights in the U.S. South, where its groaning call echoes through countless swamps, forests, fields, and backyards. Yet even for many people who share their habitats, hear them sing, and sometimes see them by their porch lights, these frogs are easily overlooked and undervalued.
EarthSky News: Moon and Fomalhaut in late September
These next several nights – September 28, 29 and 30, 2020 – use the bright waxing gibbous moon to find the star Fomalhaut. It’s one of our sky’s 1st-magnitude stars, or brightest stars, and appears in a part of the sky that’s largely empty of other bright stars. For this reason, Fomalhaut is often called the Lonely One or Solitary One.

Inner Journey: EXPLORE YOUR FEARS
“Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, our fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if we explore them.”
— Marilyn Ferguson
In our world of duality, fear and love sit at opposite ends of the continuum. Fear belongs only to the personality because it believes in separation and impermanence. The soul never knows fear because it understands the unity of all.
When fear arises, we can invite our soul to sit with our frightened personality. What soul energies are waiting to be acknowledged? When we bring higher energies into the presence of lower energies, the lower energies are transformed.
“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear,not how to escape from it.”
— Jiddu Krishnamurti

“When one is pretending the entire body revolts.”
Self-awareness means also being in touch with the signals that our body gives us. We might try to “fake it” on the outside, but we can’t fool ourselves. The body doesn’t lie. When we get stressed out it can show up in our stomach, or our back, or as a headache. We can use those signals to give our body what it needs to come back into balance – whether it’s a glass of water, a massage, or a nap!
