Spirit Library: Let Go of Distractions (a message from Kate Spreckley)

The form and structure of our world continues to dissolve bringing to a close certain aspects of our lives and our reality. We are being forced to let go of the past and the foundations of our reality which have sustained the dysfunctional facets of life on Earth. As a result, we are being urged to heal the ancient wounds of the past which have kept us stuck in continuous cycles of pain and suffering.

Daily Good: Practicing the Art of Wonder: Lessons from the Hummingbird

My work is loving the world.

  • Mary Oliver –

Practicing the Art of Wonder: Lessons from the Hummingbird

“A Broad-billed Hummingbird hangs for a few seconds, not three feet away. The brilliant sapphire gorget flashes for an instant, and then the tiny bird is gone in a shot, his raspy cry fading like a lost thought into the oaks. I close my eyes and try to feel the impact that the hundreds of hummingbirds I’ve seen over the past few days have had on my psyche. The swirl of their presence, their diminutive size, their radiant color, their adroit quickness, their bickering flurries, all seep into me, and finally well up into awed appreciation, just for their being in the world. Past, future, and self fall away. In that moment, Ive become the planet-as-human, in wonder at hummingbirds, feeling them as part of the splendor of life.” { read more }

What does reclaiming your power even mean?
This isn’t about having power over someone else. It isn’t about being better than the next person. It isn’t ego-fueled in any capacity. What means is remembering who you are and what you stand for, and owning it.

Our chart shows the nights of July 19, 20 and 21, 2021, when the moon will approaching this star and then passing it. Watch for the moon on these nights!

Danu’s Irish Herb Garden: Making Medicine with Mullein



“We don’t always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail…We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.”
— Julia Cameron

We are each unique beings with a unique path in life. If we wish to be fulfilled, we need to go to our own hearts for direction. We might regularly ask ourselves:

“What do I really want to do?”
“What brings me greatest happiness?”
“How can I bring more of these into my life?”
Life wants us to go for what brings us most joy and meaning.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. …I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Let me listen to me and not to them.”
— Gertrude Stein

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

Daily Wisdom
July 19, 2021

Juliet: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”

-Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Shakespeare has a point here in that a name is a label, and in many cases, merely an identifier. But at the same time, those letters, and syllables, come to signify something to us that is meaningful. The word alone conveys the meaning that we have attached to it.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.
