September Quotes

“Hail! Journeyer of the Heavens,
Queen of Brightness, King of Beauty
Gifts of gladness richly bringing,
Autumn sheaves and red leaves’ fall,
Generous be the heart within us,
Open be our hands to all,
Justice to be in equal measure,
Harvest thankfulness our call.”

Spirit Library: Focus on Your Healing (a message from Kate Spreckley)

The upcoming Full Moon and Equinox offer an opportunity to move on from the past. The incoming energies are helping us to transform old wounds into understanding, clarity, and wisdom so that we may shift our perspective and gain a new vision of the future. As a result, anything that is not in alignment with our soul is being transformed, altered and or removed which will help us to deepen into our intuitive nature and integrate the shifts and changes we have experienced in the past few months.

Inner Journey:

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR EMOTIONS

“Emotions are the next frontier to be understood and conquered. To manage our emotions is not to drug them or suppress them, but to understand them so that we can intelligently direct our emotional energies and intentions…. It’s time for human beings to grow up emotionally, to mature into emotionally managed and responsible citizens. No magic pill will do it.”
— Doc Childre

Many of us believe that we need to keep a tight lid on our emotions. We fear that if we ever allow these emotions to be expressed, they will do serious damage.

But if we summon up the courage to truly feel our emotions, we discover that they don’t last. The monster in the closet turns out to be a pussycat. In fact, if we are willing to experience our emotions completely, without resistance of any kind, they burn themselves out in only a few minutes.

The only thing that keeps emotions alive within you over long periods is your unwillingness to acknowledge them.

“By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it.”
— Joseph Collins

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess

There may be moment or two when you feel responsible for everything in the world and like it’s your duty to take care of everyone. Relax, let this wash over you, and let it go. It’s not a burden so much as a demonstration of how connected you are to the people and things in your own life, and how much you care. That’s a good thing.
