Spirit Library: Be Mindful of Your Energetic State
We all exist within an energy field that is created by our collective emotions, feeling, thoughts and energy. It is this collective field that shapes the physical world and subconsciously influences all who exist within in it

Spirituality & Health: Rethinking Positive Thinking
REVIEW BY KATHRYN DRURY WAGNER
“In the face of a big challenge or chore, people often fantasize about how it feels to have achieved it,” writes NYU psychologist Gabriele Oettingen. “The fantasy feels good, and it also feels relaxing—so much that we don’t take action.”

New Age Hipster: Full Moon In Virgo Tarot Spread
The full moon is a powerful time for releasing and manifestation and when it’s in detail oriented, organised Virgo it’s an extra potent time for looking at how your routines, habits and to-do lists are working or not working for you.

Patheos-Pagan: How We Met and Fell for Each Other: The Iris Story
As a Witch who loves to talk about personal gnosis, let’s talk about meeting a godd.
Or at least the way I did.

TO SUPPORT OR NOT
“It is not helpful to help a friend by putting coins in his pockets when he has got holes in his pockets.”
— Douglas Hurd
Are you struggling financially because you are helping another adult who is being irresponsible around money?
Without intending to do so, we can keep people dependent when we are willing to financially rescue them. Enablers typically feel it’s their duty to help out. They may see giving money as an expression of love. Unfortunately, they may lose their own financial security as a result.
As hard as it may be to do, the solution may lie in forcing the dependent to find his or her own way financially. In this case, it’s not selfish to not lend a hand — it actually serves the highest interests of all. Learning personal responsibility can be a tough road but it’s a necessary one for empowerment.
“Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon them and to let them know that you trust them.”
— Booker T. Washington

“I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.”
We don’t need to know everything. Isn’t that great? What a burden it would be to carry around all that information constantly. And yet everything we could ever need, or want, to know is available to us at any time. All we have to do is ask! We are here to help each other, we are our own greatest resource

Daily Tarot: The Magician
It may be hard to be serious and stick to those dull but crucial tasks that keep the day running smoothly. Be systematic, cheerful, and don’t let it show if you feel undervalued or underappreciated. Save your sharp wit and cleverness for another time and place. Time spent with younger people or children can lift your spirits and keep things in perspective for you.
