December Quotes

“Just as a dancer, turning and turning,
may fill the dusty light with the soft swirl
of her flying skirts, our weeping willow —
now old and broken , creaking in the breeze —
turns slowly, slowly in the winter sun,
sweeping the rusty roof of the barn
with the pale blue lacework of her shadow.”

  • Ted Kooser, Winter Morning Walks

Spirit Library: Flowing Between the Old & the New
Kate Spreckley

Currently, there are powerful cosmic forces at play that will guarantee that the next few weeks will energetically stormy. The energies are volatile, fast, and unpredictable as the very fabric of our material world is dissolving. As a result, time will feel different and strange as we flow between the old and the new. We will feel these energies more and more as we move towards the 12:12 portal and then the Solstice on the 21st.

I blinked and there he remained.

Inner Journey:


“The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
— William Faulkner

Longing for a miracle that will transform your life? Miracles happen, and if we don’t want that magic to disappear on us, we need to learn from each epiphany — to integrate it, apply it, and build on it so we can permanently shift to a new level of being.

The real key to fulfillment lies in ONGOING transformation: building our awareness of daily opportunities to change our perceptions and raise our consciousness. Life is about dissolving the old and creating anew. The more we open to accepting and learning from every life experience, the more our lives transform.

“Enlightenment must come little by little — otherwise it would overwhelm.”
— Idries Shah

Daily Wisdom
December 9, 2021

“How we remember, what we remember, and why we remember form the most personal map of our individuality.”

-Christina Baldwin, 1977

Memory is selective. Whether it’s conscious or unconscious, there are things that just stick in our minds and then they pop up at various times, called upon or not. We carry memories around with us all the time, they are a part of our history, a part of us.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

Be calm, proactive, and don’t exhaust yourself with endless fear. Any number of things might backfire or go wrong today, just like any other day, and there is little if anything extraordinary to be fearful about now. Your basic sense of insecurity may be higher than normal today, but this will pass soon. Take heart and be your normal brave self.
