September Quotes

“The morrow was a bright September morn;
The earth was beautiful as if newborn;
There was nameless splendor everywhere,
That wild exhilaration in the air,
Which makes the passers in the city street
Congratulate each other as they meet.”

  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Spirit Library: Full Attention is Demanded (a message from Kate Spreckley)

We are living in a phenomenal time where our full attention is being demanded as the incoming energies work to bring about something totally new and unprecedented within ourselves and our world. The individual shifts and changes occurring now are stoking the fires of our collective transformation awakening us all to a new vision of a new world. We are being pushed beyond what has previously been known and as the old continues to collapse a new and fertile landscape will be revealed.

Inner Journey:


“The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Do you feel worthy of having joy? Do you feel you deserve it?

The first step to activating our inner joy is to eliminate the blocks to it. We can start by truly forgiving ourselves and all others. Forgiveness calls for a shift in our perception. It is easier to forgive ourselves and others when we really understand that each of us has always done the very best we knew to do at that time.

“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


A Note from the Universe

What do you give someone who already has it all, forever and ever?

Did you just say, “How about the fleeting illusion they don’t have it all, to create a sense of adventure, to fill their days with drama, and to impose upon them the almost unbearable lightness of being that all angels feel when dancing in time and space… dude”?

Or was that “dude” actually a “duh”?

Thank you for being a friend,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
September 17, 2021

“Champions take responsibility. When the ball is coming over the net, you can be sure I want the ball.”

-Billie Jean King

Being reliable is being a champion. It’s being strong, and confident in our abilities. It’s accepting challenges and rising to the occasion. It’s taking on life in partnership with the universe knowing that we can handle whatever comes our way

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Temperance

Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
