The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky.
–William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

Patheos-Pagan: Working With Ancestors During Samhain

It is often said that the veil is thin at this time of year, and while it’s true that ancestors are never far away from us, they have seemed particularly close to me as we head towards Samhain and darkening days.



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


Inner Journey: INTUIT AND DO IT

“If doubt is challenging you and you do not act, doubts will grow. Challenge the doubts with action and you will grow. Doubt and action are incompatible.”
— John Kanary

To reap the greatest benefits from intuition, we need ACTION. Be in motion. Act as if your highest expectations have already happened. Be in front of more opportunities and people. Let go of any blocks or attachments. Create mental space and physical space. Plan your work and work your plan.

Miracles rarely happen by doing nothing. Most miracles happen through other people.

What actions can you take that will move you towards your goals?

“Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle.”
— Annie Besant


A Note from the Universe

Sometimes if the direction you’re about to move feels “right” in your head and heart, yet the first few steps look pretty daunting, not fun, and maybe even scary, you should take those first few steps anyway and get ’em over with.

And I’m not just saying that because watching you in action gives me goose bumps.

Love you madly

Daily Wisdom
October 28, 2020

“Life is not so short but that there is always time enough for courtesy.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

This is actually a very spiritual concept. Courtesy is more than just manners – it’s kindness. It’s showing both respect and appreciation for our fellow human beings. The way the world is today, being courteous can be a challenge at times. We get impatient, and frustrated, and short-tempered. But that’s when it’s time to take a breath and remember the wise words of Emerson, there is always time enough for courtesy.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Emperor

Kindness will take you very far today. It’s not a show of weakness or inferiority to engage in that random act of kindness. Think of it as acting out of generosity of spirit. The bigger your heart today, the more respect and cooperation will come your way. Make sure your kindness is genuine and from a genuine place. Then you’re virtually unassailable.
