Nature truly is medicine.
I’m not just talking about natural medicines, like how ginger helps an upset tummy or how lavender can be a benefit for those of us with high blood pressure.

I’m talking about how nature heals by simply surrounding ourselves with it—either within our homes, or by getting outside. It can even be done when you’re in a concrete, urban environment—yep!

EarthSky News: Ursa Major the Great Bear, home to the Big Dipper

Ursa Major the Great Bear
Ursa Major the Great Bear contains an asterism, or collection of stars, that is a hallmark of Northern Hemisphere skies. The Big Dipper, or the Plow, is a portion of the Great Bear that represents the back half of the bear’s torso and it’s (oddly) long tail. Most everyone has seen the Big Dipper, but have you ever taken the time to trace out the entire form of the Great Bear? May nights are a wonderful time to try it.

Patheos-Pagan: Hoodoo How We Do: Spells For Injustice
MAY 4, 2022 BY LILITH DORSEY

Hoodoo is a practice born out of slavery and oppression. At it’s foundation it is about finding justice, and fighting for equality. It saddens me to say it but these things are just as life threateningly important as they ever have been. Black lives always matter, mine and all the rest.

Inner Journey: CELEBRATE DIFFERENCES

“Souls don’t have races or sexes or religions. They are beyond artificial divisions.”
— Brian Weiss

Intolerance of differences always exists in people who don’t know who they are, people who don’t have a strong sense of their own authentic self, the soul within.

Intolerance is rooted in fear.

The basis for having a strong sense of self-esteem is to replace our unconscious idea of basic unworthiness with a conscious knowing of our fundamental inherent goodness. As Matthew Fox argues in Original Blessing, the notion of ‘original sin’ must be replaced with the truth of ‘original blessing.’

Being in touch with our essential goodness, we can see the essential goodness in others as well.

“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.”
— Paul Ferrini

Daily Wisdom

Optimism
“I don’t believe in pessimism. If something doesn’t come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it’s going to rain, it will.”

-Clint Eastwood


Our thoughts have so much power – we can color our day, and our world, with the thoughts that we think. So why not think optimistically? Why not think only of the best, the brightest, the most beautiful outcome in any given situation? We can make it happen. Anything is possible, ANYTHING… so let’s not defeat ourselves before we’ve even started by thinking negatively. Be an optimist, and let those optimistic vibes out into the world today!

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com
