Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite
All are on their rounds to-night,-
In the wan moon’s silver ray
Thrives their helter-skelter play.

Patheos-Pagan: Druid in the City: When You Just Can’t …
Time is wibbly-wobbly. It stretches and compresses in the oddest ways. And still, one day looks much like another – sitting in my “office” at home, staring out the window with no one to talk to but my partner. Too much zoom and not enough people.

Inner Journey: BE AWARE OF YOUR THINKING
“There is a thought in your mind right now. The longer you hold on to it, the more you dwell upon it, the more life you give to that thought. Give it enough life, and it will become real. So make sure the thought is indeed a great one.”
— Ralph Marston
Most of our self-talk comes unconsciously from our subconscious. Yet every thought that exists in our subconscious got there through a conscious decision to accept that thought.
We need to become conscious of our self-talk so we can at will choose to replace negative beliefs with positive ones. We have the power to choose an identity we love, but we need to do the work. The process of changing our subconscious beliefs requires awareness, diligence, consistency and repetition.
“Man is made or unmade by himself. In the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace.”
— James Allen
A Note from the Universe
I ask you as humbly as I can, to consider taking the path less traveled, going within, and getting quiet. Being yourself, shining your light, and serving others.
No! Not what you’re thinking!! I ask these things not that they might be an alternative to living your bliss, manifesting like crazy, and living a prosperous life… but as a means to attaining them.
I got you, babe

“Moderation multiplies pleasures.”
-Democritus (460-370 B.C.)
When we don’t have to worry about the extremes, we can enjoy the ride so much more. We can have a clear view from both sides, we can breathe freely, we can coast every once in awhile on the smooth surface. We appreciate all the little things along the way that make the journey so pleasurable

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
Let intuition be your guide today and you won’t go too far wrong. If something doesn’t need to be done or delivered instantly, take your time and let events, situations, and people claim the time and attention they seem to want. Things want to sort themselves out for you, in the best ways. Don’t introduce complications. Be decisive when necessary but otherwise step up, too, and be pleasantly surprised
