Patheos-Pagan: Cultivating Space for Effective Rituals
AUGUST 9, 2022 BY JESSICA JASCHA
Ritual, when done right, is a sacred space of manifestation where we are able to connect more fully with ourselves and our spirit team to bring about the healing and growth we desire. There are many aspects to making a ritual successful. Setting the space is important to helping us achieve our desired results. There’s a reason for pomp and circumstance. It helps us set the right ambience so that we can enter the ritual fully in mind, heart, and body.
Pagan Playlist: Faun ~ Wilde Rose (With Lyrics & Translations)
“Life is the coexistence of all opposite values. Joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, up and down, hot and cold, here and there, light and darkness, birth and death. All experience is by contrast, and one would be meaningless without the other.”
— Deepak Chopra
Life is full of dualities, opposites. Despite their apparent opposition, each extreme in a duality is necessary to fully actualize the other. Each depends on the existence of the other. For example, we cannot know honesty if we don’t know deception.
The key is to not resist or suppress the negative. We need to acknowledge its existence, though we may choose not to express it. When we embrace wholeness, we move to a higher perspective.
“The light which man has discovered within himself makes him more aware of the dark; through the good which attracts him, he sees the evil which is the line of least resistance; the activity leading to pain simultaneously permits him to visualize the contrasting pleasure, and thus he experiences something of both hell and heaven.”
— Aart Jurriaanse
A Note from the Universe
No one can be both happy and unhappy at the same time, right?
One blights the other.
So, here’s what we do: Pick ANY reason to be happy, and unhappiness gets locked out.
And we do it forever.

“Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.”
Remember that formula! When we’re really excited about something, if we want to make something happen, all we need to do is to share our enthusiasm, use common sense, and don’t give up! It’s that simple. Success begins with enthusiasm.

Daily Tarot: Death
Say goodbye to some old useless habit and welcome the chance to develop a new habit that will serve you better and take you further. The Death card is not so much the end of anything as it is the shutting off of some automatic pilot switch and getting you back out under your own power again. Be strong. You can more fully embrace this change in the near future.
