New Level of Sensitivity (a message from Kate Spreckley)
Monday, 12 July, 2021

With this past weekend’s New Moon, we continue to ride wave after wave of galactic energy all of which is preparing us in some way for the future. What that future looks like or how it will be no one knows as each step that we take, each transformation we move through determines our journey. Our only certainty is change and as we navigate our way, we are compelled to resolve our past and to find a new way of living and being with the Earth.

Daily Good: Seven Lessons Learned from Leaves

Though leaves are many, the root is one.

  • William Butler Yeats –

Seven Lessons Learned from Leaves

“I’ve been thinking more deeply about leaves –what these simple gifts of nature can teach us, and how they can help us overcome the challenges we face in life. Over the past year, I jotted down thoughts in a vintage leather-covered notebook that I keep on my desk. And in the spirit of this deeper exploration, I used a macro lens on my camera to reveal a closer look at the wondrous structure of leaves. Here are seven things I’m grateful for having observed.” Paul Cotter shares more. { read more }

Treehugger: Male Dragonflies Get Less Flashy in Hotter Climates

When temperatures rise, male dragonflies have come up with a decidedly drab but clever way to stay cool. They lose some of the showy pigmentation on their wings, a new study finds. Shedding the dark patches helps regulate their body temperature, but it could make it harder to attract mates and fend off rivals.

EarthSky News: What Is The Ecliptic?

Have you noticed that the sun, moon and planets all follow more or less the same path across our sky?

If you live in the high Arctic or Antarctic, you’ll see the sun or moon track along your horizon. But most of us – on most parts of Earth – see the sun arc across the sky from east to west, as Earth spins each day. The moon follows the sun’s path. And so do the major planets in our solar system. This imaginary track across our sky – the sun’s path during the day – is called the ecliptic.

Inner Journey:


“Once, when we were discussing a world peace project with my teacher, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, somebody asked him, ‘Where is all the money going to come from?’ And he replied without hesitation, ‘From wherever it is at the moment.'”
— Deepak Chopra

How can you open to greater trust that you’ll always have what you need?

Fear, doubt, anxiety and disbelief all serve to repel abundance from us. Faith, love and gratitude for the gifts of our lives keep energy and abundance flowing. The more we trust in our well being, the more it will be realized.

“Manifestation is an act of trust. It is the soul pouring itself out into its world, like a fisherman casting a net to gather in the fish he seeks; with each cast properly made, we will bring what we need to us, but first we must hurl ourselves into the depths without knowing just what lies beneath us.”
— David Spangler


A Note from the Universe

You just never know who in the crowd, standing beside you in line or passing you in the street, might be raised in spirit, or even lifted from despair, by the kindness in your glance or the comfort of your smile.

But they may never forget.

Daily Wisdom
July 13, 2021

“Our moral progress may be measured by the degree in which we sympathize with individual suffering and individual joy.”

-George Eliot (1819-1880)

Progress is learning more about who we are. Progress is understanding and relating and empathizing with other people because we realize that we are all in this together. There is no separation between us. When we can truly experience that Oneness, we will have made real progress!

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Empress

Dress well, speak well, and spend time with people who normally might overlook you. Today you have more authority and influence than usual. At work, your superiors will recognize your talents and capabilities (though they might not outwardly acknowledge it). At home, you can be the ruler of all you survey and your word will go unchallenged. Be gracious and make it all beautiful.
