“Once a human being has arrived on this earth, communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships he makes with others and what happens to him in the world about him.”
— Virginia Satir
How do you typically communicate? Is it through words, gestures, emotions, thoughts, desires, needs, truths, direct perception or intuition? Do you focus more on the other person or on yourself? Do you typically tell, ask or listen?
For a few days, set an intention to be aware of your communication styles and skills. After you’ve spent some time talking with someone, reflect on what your underlying motives were and what level of depth you reached. Write your insights in your journal.This exercise will help you become more aware and conscious of who you are and why you do what you do.
“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversation with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
— Thomas Moore
“You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight to our hearts.”

“Desire is the very essence of man.”
- Benedict De Spinoza, Ethics
Interesting word, “desire.” It evokes a lot of feeling. No wonder so many pop songs use it to describe a heart’s yearning… can’t you just hear the Backstreet Boys now? “You are my fire, my one desire!” Desire is man’s great motivator, it spurs us into action! Through action comes experience, achievement, accomplishment, and many great things.
So, you have a desire… now what do you do with it? Of course, you want to fulfill it! We are busy fulfilling our desires everyday, and sometimes so easily that we aren’t even aware of what we are doing. Let’s look at the mechanics of desire fulfillment:
- Recognize the desire.
- Evaluate the desire – do you REALLY want it?
- Create an intention to fulfill the desire.
- Release the desire to the universe – state your intention clearly.
- Give up any attachment to the outcome… anything can happen, and
it’s usually better than we ever could have anticipated.
- Let the universe handle the details – don’t try to control or
manipulate how things happen.
- Express gratitude

Daily Tarot: The Devil
Some days you just want to be self-indulgent, and today is one of those days. Put those feelings on the back burner while at work or out in public. After the serious part of the day is over, the danger actually increases for you. Don’t overindulge and make yourself sick or regretful. Sometimes too much of a good thing is too much, and you want to start tomorrow feeling good.
