Dear Ones,

You likely have a sense of calm – as if you have taken a step back from the world chaos.

Such does not mean you will never again be confused or upset about world events; but instead, you are beginning to see the sun peaking through the clouds.

Spirituality & Health: How to Give a Blessing
by Martin Thielen

The practice of offering someone a formal blessing may be more ancient—and meaningful—than you know.


Blessings can—and should—be offered freely and often to those we love and the community at large. If we regularly receive and give blessings, our own lives are enriched. For Christians, it is a Divine request to bless others. For non-Christians, the act of blessing is a powerful tool for uplifting and strengthening relationships with our communities.

Patheos-Pagan: Three Messages from Loki to the World
JULY 27, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT


I had a small part in a Seiðr oracular ritual at this year’s Mystic South. I was asked to provide priestly aftercare for those who received messages from their Gods and ancestors, and so I expected to help people with grounding, processing, and on a couple of occasions, accepting the messages they were given.

Inner Journey:

WHAT IS YOUR DESTINY?

“The significant business of your life is alive and well, awaiting discovery, within your very soul. You and I were born to come into ourselves as complete and distinctive persons. Accepting this, we build a valuable life.”
— Marsha Sinetar

What is the significant business of your life? What is your purpose? Andrew Schneider says that purpose “is more than just having a direction. It is about one’s place in the universe. It is the journey of finding that place and being there and living fully whatever that place is. It is your own unique place that nobody else has, had, or will have.”

How would you describe your place in the universe?

“We become powerful in the face of our fears when we have a sense that we make a difference in this world. Affirmations of purpose communicate the truth that we are all meaningful participants in this Universe and that we are worthy of giving and receiving love. Some affirmations of purpose are:

I know that I count and I act as though I do.

I spread warmth and love everywhere I go.

I am a healing force in the Universe.”
— Susan Jeffers

“The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”
— Joseph Addison

Simplicity
“It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”

-Laura Ingalls Wilder (1917)


What’s real? Schedules, deadlines, hassles, arguments, conflicts, “fine print,” details? Those things sure command our attention – but are they real? Or do they take us away from what is really real? Where is the love? Put your attention there. Ahhhh, that’s better!

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Chariot

If you’ve been working hard toward some goal or specific result, you could see victory today. Feel like a winner, project the confidence of a winner, and perhaps behave as though you have already won. Keep your spirits high no matter what happens and be pleased with how many people are happy for you. No matter how huge or trivial, it is still a big step forward.
