Good Morning Beautiful Souls! Grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and start things off with “Today’s Inspirations”. I hope you find something here that will make you feel good or help you on your path today.
For winter’s rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins.”
- Algernon Charles Swinburne, Atalanta in Calydon

We have lived within an energetic framework that has conditioned us to experience life in a particular way. As this framework dissolves we are urged to let go of our old conditioning and the outdated stories of who we should be.

from Gaia World: CRYSTAL SHAPES & THEIR MEANINGS
Someone new to the crystal world might think the way a crystal is cut or shaped is purely aesthetic, but there’s a little more to a crystal’s shape than meets the eye.
The carving of crystals into different symbolic shapes and forms is ancient.

Each of the four cardinal elements – earth, air, fire and water – can be incorporated into magical practice and ritual. Depending on your needs and intent, you may find yourself drawn to one of these elements more so that the others.
Pagan Library: Blessing
May the East fling open your windows,
and fill your rooms with air;
May the South send you strong sunshine,
and give you the strength to dare;
May the west wash rivers into your
heart, and oceans into your soul,
May the North share the secrets and
gifts of the earth,
to heal and make you whole.

Treehugger: 16 of the Fiercest Apex Predators in the World
An apex predator is the animal at the top, or apex, of its food web that has no natural predators. These top predators often have large home ranges and small population densities, which means human interference and habitat encroachment can pose serious threats to their survival.

Patheos-Pagan: Spring is here! Plant seeds to work on your physical & mental gardens
MARCH 23, 2022 BY ANN TRIP
Spring conventionally arrived on Sunday, March 20. Yes, as Pagans, we held rituals and welcomed Ostara, or if you are Druid as I am – Alban Eilir. This is only the beginning though. Seeds, just like the spells we create, take more than uttering words. There is work involved, lots of work.
Pagan Playlist: True Magick ☥ Magic Meditation Music to Activate Your Gifts
“We tell ourselves so many lies and half-truths … We listen and are duly impressed by these inner voices that turn into unseen judges that nag at us. We give each of these judges a seat of honor in our minds, all the while hating their guts and their never-ending supply of judgements … We give the judges permission to accompany us on each journey of life, never daring to realize that we can park them, at least momentarily.”
— Eloise Ristad
“The Inner Critic makes each of us a child. As we become the child in our relationships, we lose our sense of self. We are no longer self-contained, self- respecting adults. We look to others for validation. Our self-worth is based upon their opinion of us. Thus, everyone around us becomes a mother or a father whose support and approval is desperately needed to protect us from the constant criticism of the Inner Critic.”
— Hal and Sidra Stone

“Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness… the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire.”
-Pierre Tielhard de Chardin
Is there anything more powerful than love? Love is creative; with love we can accomplish anything. With love we have accomplished everything! Love is the great up-lifter, the strongest force there is. Love heals. Love grows. Love is the basis for life itself. Love is invisible, and yet ever-present. Love is the most valuable gift we will ever give or receive, and yet love is perfectly free.
-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com
Daily Tarot: The Judgement
You can secure an important victory and achieve a long-held aspiration today. This obviously is not an overnight achievement but probably something you’ve been intermittently pursuing for a long time. Some dreams refuse to die, and this may be the day for one of those dreams to begin to see the light of day in the real world. Be heartened and don’t let up now.
