Spirit Library: Renewal of Life (a message from Kate Spreckley)

In these times of dramatic change, it can be tempting to throw ourselves into life by attempting to accomplish things at the level that we have in the past. However, a more gradual approach is needed as we are still integrating the shifts and changes that have occurred recently. Being mindful of our energy reserves and the unnecessary aspects that are still draining us is important

Daily Good: Friend of the Water

A name is a starting point for bringing the abstract into relationship, enkindling understanding.

  • Natalie Middleton –

Friend of the Water

“Above a clear, rocky stream, a tiny green tree frog perches on the belly of a leaf. Turning its minute snout toward the water, the frog lets out three chirps in the dark, struggling to make itself known. The act of naming is never a discovery, but a description of what always was there, a sound connected to a thought in time. The heart within the translucent chest of the tiny frog by the stream beats with blood dating back 300 million years, long before the first utterance of human language. And until recently, it survived, like 86 percent of terrestrial life, without a scientific name, unable to break through what taxonomists refer to as the Linnean shortfall.” Science writer Natalie Middleton shares more. { read more }

Pagan Playlist: Pagan Folk Witch songs



“One word frees us from the weight and pain of life; that word is love.”
— Sophocles

In exploring the enneagram, Riso and Hudson have identified ‘lost messages’ that we needed to hear as children but didn’t. The absence of these words may be at the heart of our most basic fear. And unconsciously we may still be seeking to hear these words from others.

Review the following messages and note if any one touches you more strongly than the others:

  1. “You are good.”
  2. “You are wanted.”
  3. “You are loved for yourself.”
  4. “You are seen for who you are.”
  5. “Your needs are not a problem.”
  6. “You are safe.”
  7. “You will be taken care of.”
  8. “You will not be betrayed.”
  9. “Your presence matters.”

“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
— Dinah Mulock


A Note from the Universe

Just knowing that good things are now happening for you behind the curtains of time and space, which will soon spill into your life, is enough to make good things start happening for you.

Always know this. Because they are.

Happy for you,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
May 7, 2021

“I am open to conviction on all points except dinner and debts. I hold that one must be eaten and the other paid. Those are my only prejudices.”

-George Eliot, 1857

Having an open mind will get us far. It helps us to learn and to grow. There are so many different experiences just waiting for us. There are times when we need to step up and say “okay, let’s go” and see what happens, see where a philosophy takes us. We can always change our mind and try out something else!

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Fool

The day may be full of confusion but you don’t have to go through it naively and unaware of what’s happening around you. It’s not a good day to flirt with taking silly risks, some of which might turn out to be semi-dangerous or costly. You may be too hyper to want to play it safe, but at least make an effort to not be naïve or irresponsible.
