Spirituality & Health: A Full Moon Ritual for Release by Kalia Kelmenson
The full moon offers a potent time to create rituals.
The sky at night is a constant reminder of the rhythms of life. Each night offers subtle shifts: the stars are different, the moon waxes and wanes, meteor showers come and go. The night sky calls to us to observe and tune in, offering a chance to contemplate our own rhythms.
ThoughtCo: Prayers for a Deceased Pet Dog
If you’ve ever had the love of a good dog, you know how soul-crushing it can be when they leave us. A loyal dog is a true companion – they love us despite our shortcomings and failures, they’re constantly happy to see us (even if we just left the room five minutes ago), and they somehow always manage to know when we need to feel better at the end of a long, rough day

Daily Magick Snippets
The root chakra is the first chakra and is located at the base of the spine. It is the root of your being and establishes the deepest connections with your physical body, your environment and with the Earth. Muladhara is the most instinctual of all chakras – it is your survival center. Your fight and flight response is initiated from this chakra.

The end of 2021 is fast approaching.
This year brought us more of what we are now more familiar with, though perhaps still not always comfortable in: tumultuous shifts, episodic confusion, and detours and reroutes bent on liberation of self—even in moments of unperceived forward movement.

Inner Journey: RECOGNIZING ABUNDANCE
Acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
— Eckhart Tolle
Where do you now experience abundance in your life?
If you are hard-pressed to find abundance in your finances or possessions, look to spiritual qualities. Do you experience abundance in a special relationship? In a quiet moment in a park? In a good laugh with a friend? The more you acknowledge abundance in your spirit, the richer your life will become.
“Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.”
— John Petit-Senn

“The best servant does his work unseen.”
-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894)
Seva is a Sanskrit word which means self-less service. This is serving without condition, without expectation of recognition or reciprocation. This is the most pure form of service. When we give of ourselves, with all of our heart, just for the sake of giving, this is when we do the most good.

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
Even if it’s a busy day at work or with loved ones, it may still be an introspective kind of day when you need to frequently take a quiet moment to reflect. Be organized and perform your tasks well, but also find those quiet instances when you can make sense of your feelings and impressions. You can get a great deal done today, and feel inwardly satisfied about it.
