Spirit Library: Liminal Space (a message from Kate Spreckley)
Currently, we are floating in a liminal space, on the threshold between the old and the new, between death and rebirth where the dissolution of the old is creating a fluid, malleable space that will enable the new to become fully developed. As such we stand in the space between our old self and our new self.

Spiritual Unite: SPIRITUAL MEANING OF DEJA VU
“Did it happen before?” It is the first question that appears in a person’s mind who is experiencing déjà vu. Déjà vu is the French term meaning “already seen”. French psychic researcher Émile Boirac first tossed the word and from that time, lots of research has been done on the matter, but it remains the unsolved mystery of human life.
ThoughtCo: Birthstone Magic
Each month of the year is associated with a specific stone – in some cases, two stones. From January’s bold red garnets to the speckled blue bands of December’s turquoise stones, there are any number of magical uses for the traditional birthstones. If you have any of these on hand – whether it’s your birth month or not – why not incorporate them into spellwork and rituals? Let’s get started!
MBG: Unique Study Shows That Greenery Is Essential To Happiness Globally
The greener the city, the healthier its people. That’s the conclusion of most studies on how urban green space (urban forests, backyards, parks, etc.) influences mental and physical health.

“When guilt rears its ugly head confront it, discuss it and let it go. The past is over. It is time to ask what can we do right, not what did we do wrong. Forgive yourself and move on.”
— Bernie S. Siegel
“I have made it a rule of my life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy . . . you can’t build on it; it’s only good for wallowing in.”
— Katherine Mansfield
“If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole.”
— Joan Borysenko
“Light burdens borne far become heavy.”
— French proverb
A Note from the Universe
Do you know why I’m so fond of the time-space continuum?
Besides that I thought it up…
Besides you being in it…
Besides puppies and kittens…
It’s because it can all seem so logical… so predictable… so real, when you want it to. Or, in the twinkling of an eye, you can choose to remember it’s not.
Keep it up, buttercup –

“Dinner, a time when one should eat wisely but not too well, and talk well but not too wisely.”
-W. Somerset Maugham
One way we can honor ourselves and our food is by paying attention to what we eat. Start the meal with gratitude. Enjoy the company of people you love. Share with each other, both the food and the conversation. Pause after the meal to rest and digest before transitioning to another activity.

Daily Tarot: Death
You may be tempted to backtrack a few times today and fall back on some old habit or procedure that used to work better than it does now. After enough of this, you’ll get the message that it’s time for a change, or at least a different approach. You don’t need to have the same old conversation over and over.
