Patheos-Pagan: The Ritual I Need (and Don’t Want) to Do
JULY 15, 2022 BY IRISANYA MOON
My life needs a bit more ritual.
Sometimes, it feels like a room I haven’t cleaned up in a while. I look around and I know where things are to function, but I also know that if I organized a bit, threw a few things away, and/or rearranged the furniture, I would feel less overwhelmed.

FEEL YOUR EMOTIONS
“The key is to not resist or rebel against emotions or to try to get around them by devising all sorts of tricks; but to accept them directly, as they are.”
— Takahisa Kora
Emotions are energy in motion. They bring us information if we are willing to experience them. Unfortunately, many of us are afraid of the energy of emotions and so we automatically resist them. And when we refuse to experience our emotions, we block them up. They become trapped and that entrapment drains our energy and brings continuing discomfort.
Don’t let emotions push you into action or reaction. Just STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Allow them to be and to speak to you. Oncem they are acknowledged, their energy is released.
“Instead of resisting any emotion, the best way to dispel it is to enter it fully, embrace it and see through your resistance.”
— Deepak Chopra
“We have to become more conscious of our feeling-world. By learning to identify the ‘emotional baggage’ and manage our feeling-world reactions, we can view life based on current information instead of being held captive by our past.”
— Doc Childre
“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.”
— Audre Lorde

“The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.”
-Florence Scovel Shinn
We’ve heard it time and time again, in a million different ways: we reap what we sow. When we plant apple seeds, we get apples. When we plant broccoli seeds, we get broccoli. It’s the law of nature and we all understand it! Now we need to take it to the level where we understand that when we plant seeds of encouragement, that’s what we receive in return. When we spread happiness, we get happiness back. When we give love, we get love. There’s no mystery to it, that’s just the way it is!

Daily Tarot: The Devil
You don’t want to spend the whole day trying to swim upstream. Work on your self-control and don’t let anyone or anything lure you into overreacting or flying out of control. Be practical and don’t get in your own way. You can have your silly fun later, and fantasize your revenge, at home in private with those who love you no matter what you do or say.
