Inner Journey: BUILD THE AWARENESS HABIT
“It is difficult to see the picture when you are inside of the frame.”
— Author Unknown
Start building the awareness habit: STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Set an intention to become aware of how you automatically react to different things in your life.
For example, how do you react to the alarm clock, the shower, traffic, work colleagues and situations, your partner or children? How do you react to anger or fear in someone else? How do you react to your own anger or fear? Become a witness to your own life. Pay attention to how you do things.
“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.”
— Abraham H. Maslow
A Note from the Universe
Ever have a dream at night, when you wondered in the middle of it whether or not you were dreaming?
Knowing that if you were just dreaming, you could rewrite the scary parts and expand the happy parts; run faster, jump higher, laugh your head off; summon guides, travel through time, read minds; levitate, manifest, do the impossible.
But then, you thought to yourself, “No, this just can’t be a dream, it’s way too real.”
Yeah, you’re having one right now.

“Genius… means little more than the faculty of perceiving in an unhabitual way.”
-William James (1842-1910)
Ah! How true! It’s thinking “out of the box” or “breaking the mold!” It’s breaking that karmic cycle of doing the same thing, the same way, over and over again. Genius is originality!

Daily Tarot: The Empress
Be ambitious today, in a subtle way, and meet with a lot of cooperation and good will. Your ambition does not have to be grandiose. Concentrate on small projects and sweep away a lot of loose ends and complete things that have been long lingering. Act and speak with authority, and be fully respected. Do as much as you can today, and don’t look back.
