Spirit Library: Solstice Gateway (a message from Kate Spreckley)

We are in a particularly potent time as we move towards the June Solstice on the 20th/21st of June. Each Solstice and Equinox marks the beginning and the end of a season. They represent the cycles of life and the cycles of nature. Ancient cultures understood the importance of these times and aligned with them through ceremony and celebration.

Patheos / New Visions : Maps of the Soul

I don’t trust the zodiac. The Tarot isn’t too different from a Rorschach test. Even less metaphysical personality systems like the Myers-Briggs test and Enneagram fail to impress me.

Daily Good: The Nightingale’s Song

It may be that some little root of the sacred tree still lives. Nourish it then, that it may leaf and bloom and fill with singing birds.

  • Black Elk –

The Nightingale’s Song

“Living in England with a very strange secularity within our folk repertoire has allowed me to explore what a sacred spiritual form of practice might be with these birds and how they might enable a re-enchantment. I feel like nature is my spiritual leader in this respect and the nightingale is my imam at the top of that tower calling the prayer out.” In this interview, which weaves conversation, song, and the music of nightingales, folk singer Sam Lee shares more about his collaboration with nightingales. { read more }

Elephant Journal: Magic in a Bottle: Mother Nature’s Cure for Just About Everything.

I’m always looking to Mother Nature to provide a cure for my ailments.
Tonics, pills, extracts, homeopathic, naturopathic, mind, body, soul…blah, blah, blah. I’ve tried everything under the sun in the name of good health! After a year-long battle with candida, I was in search of something that would boost my immune system, something affordable and ultimately, something that would keep bad bacteria from infiltrating my insides like a clan of stealthy ninjas.

Inner Journey:

MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF

“What is it that makes all of us end each day with the sense that we have not lived our time, but have been lived, used by what we do?”
— Jacob Needleman

How can you free up more time for yourself?

All of the great masters counsel that we need time daily for solitude. And if we want our journey in life to be meaningful, then surely we need some free time each day to explore our inner landscapes and uncover our passions. What activities can you cut out of your life to give you more growing room?

“Why has time disappeared in our culture? How is it that after decades of inventions and new technologies devoted to saving time and labor, the result is that there is no time left? We are a time-poor society; we are temporally impoverished. And there is no issue, no aspect of human life, that exceeds this in importance. The destruction of time is literally the destruction of life.”
— Jacob Needleman

A Note from the Universe

If you go first and reach for the fruit; I’ll shake the tree.

Do a little dance; I’ll add some music.

Move in the direction of your dreams, even though at first nothing seems to happen; I’ll align the stars, butter your bread, connect the dots, trim the hedge, move some mountains, float the boat, and see you at the ball.

Metaphorically (except for the ball bit).

If you go first,

Integrity
“Society has no bribe for me, neither in politics, nor church, nor college, nor city.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


Society challenges us all the time. We’re here in this human existence to learn and to grow, and facing these challenges is one way for us to do that. What wins out, temptation or conviction? Integrity has a lot to do with it. Like Jiminy Cricket sings: “always let your conscience be your guide.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com
