Pagan Playlist: Solstice Evergreen



“Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Racing through life is very stressful. If we stay in high gear too long, we lose our ability to shift down. And when we’re stressed, we can’t access happiness, appreciation, fun, compassion, generosity, awareness of beauty and other wonderful qualities. High stress also triggers negative emotions like frustration, impatience, anger and fear.

Life has so much to offer if we will slow down and truly experience it. We must always remember that we are the ones in control of the accelerator. We CAN choose to brake.

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast — you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”
— Eddie Cantor

Daily Tarot: The Hermit

Be thoughtful and leave more room and time to gain a little fresh wisdom. Be observant, too, and look beyond those things that are being put under your nose. You don’t have to share your impressions and discoveries unless you think it’s wise. This doesn’t make you hesitant, doubtful, or skeptical. It makes you better able to see solutions and to avoid repeat mistakes
