As a dream researcher and avid astral explorer of more than a decade, people often write to me seeking advice about their lucid experiences.

Patheos-Pagan: The One Where I Review Books on Magick & Mystery

I’ve been meaning to do these book reviews.

Really. I’ve had a pile of books sitting on my desk (well, under my desk) for a while.

And I have a few more that are on the way.

I’m glad I got the chance to review these as they shifted some things that needed shifting. And reminded me to go back to my why.

Inner Journey:


“We have the need to be accepted and to be loved by others, but we cannot accept and love ourselves. The more self-love we have, the less we will experience self-abuse. Self-abuse comes from self-rejection, and self-rejection comes from having an image of what it means to be perfect and never measuring up to that ideal. Our image of perfection is the reason we reject ourselves the way we are, and why we don’t accept others the way they are.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

“The maxim ‘Nothing but perfection’ may be spelled ‘Paralysis.'”
— Winston Churchill

“After enough mirror gazing, we all develop our ‘cosmic sense of humor.’ We no longer try to be perfect, or try to get all our work done in time. We become content with whatever life brings. Just to deal with what comes up without crucifying ourselves or others is enough of a challenge.”
— Paul Ferrini

“Good enough never is.”
— Debbi Fields


A Note from the Universe

Here’s how to view every decision you’ve ever made It was right.

Here’s how to view every path you’ve ever chosen: It was perfect.

Here’s how to view every trend, friend, and dance you’ve ever moved with: You were amazing.

And here’s how to view the fact that you even exist at all: “I” was totally on fire.

Daily Wisdom
April 18, 2022

“I believe in hard work. It keeps the wrinkles out of the mind and the spirit.”

-Helena Rubinstein

Helena Rubinstein is the famous cosmetics mogul. She is a great example of a businesswoman ahead of her time! It is obvious that she enjoyed her profession and was very successful with it. It is true that doing work that we love helps to keep us young and feeling good about ourselves.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Strength

Although it may be a peaceful day, that calm may all be on the surface. If dissatisfaction or anger is brewing at depth, there could be thoughts or fantasies of revenge or anger to fuel the bad feelings. Face everyone and everything with great care and respect. You have more than enough strength to deal with whatever comes up. Obviously, don’t bait or antagonize anyone. Kindness wins out.
