Inner Journey: PERCEPTION DEFINES OUR REALITY
“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”
— Henri Bergson
Our entire universe is energy — vibrating waves of pure potential. The electromagnetic vibrations of our consciousness interact with the energetic potential that exists everywhere as the life force to ‘collapse’ the waves and create matter. So the patternsof our minds create the form of our world.
By simply observing a form, we influence it. We in turn are influenced by others. This challenges us to be more aware of the quality of our being and the vibrations we transmit.
“There is no reality in the absence of observation.”
— The Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
A Note from the Universe
What if happiness didn’t have anything to do with what you have, what you do, or even where you’re headed, and arose entirely from what you chose to think about, yet nobody knew this?
And what if changing your thoughts, so that you could feel happier more often, would entirely change what you have, what you do, or even where you’re headed, yet nobody knew this either?
Do you think if we told them they’d choose to think differently every single time they ever felt sad or angry or powerless?

“Katharine: A light heart lives long.”
-William Shakespeare (1564-1616) Love’s Labour’s Lost, 1594
It’s no secret that stress takes its toll on us mentally, physically and emotionally. When we learn to handle stress more effectively, to lighten our load, or “lighten up,” then we feel better. Studies have shown that a good attitude goes a long way in increasing our longevity.

Daily Tarot: The World
You may not expect or even want it, but today you will be properly acknowledged and even honored for a skill, talent, or accomplishment. Your big heart will also be appreciated. Some sort of public reward is possible, if only in the form of praise, which can be transformed into something more tangible later. If not seeking validation or kudos, be on the alert because it’s coming. You’ve earned it!
