Spirituality & Health: Practices to Reconnect With Your Body
by Julie Peters
Want to reconnect with your body but not sure how? Discover practical steps.
We don’t always acknowledge how powerful a role our bodies play in our lives. They dictate what we can and can’t do, especially when we are ill or in pain. Beyond that, our bodies also carry with them all the secrets from our past experiences. Your mind may have moved on, but your body has an entirely different story to tell, making it hard to reconnect with your body.

EarthSky News: See Venus and the moon on morning of August 25
Venus and the moon
The wafer-thin waning crescent moon, less than 4% lit, pairs with brilliant Venus on the morning of August 25, 2022. What a breathtaking sight! If you look early enough before sunrise, while the sky is still fairly dark, you’ll spot the moon’s unlit portion glowing with earthshine. As the sun nears the horizon and washes out the sky, the earthshine will fade away.

GO FOR WHAT YOU LOVE
“Follow your bliss.”
— Joseph Campbell
It’s hard for some of us to believe that the world is served when we seek our own happiness. We’ve been taught that this is selfish.
If we stop to reflect on how we are in the world when we are happy, we can see how this serves. We have more vitality. We’re more loving and generous to others when our own needs are met.
What activities bring you greatest joy? Your unique gift to the world will be found in those pastimes you love the most.
How can you live your joy each day?
“Spiritual growth is not made in reaction against, for all striving against imposed restrictions is imaginary. Spiritual growth is accomplished by inclination toward. We grow like the sunflower, following the light.”
— Joy Houghton
A Note from the Universe

“Silence is the language of God.”
-Swami Sivananda (1887-1963)
Are we really listening when we are in silence? Or are we “thinking” and listening to our busy minds? Stop the chatter for awhile – breathe – get quiet – and allow those thoughts to pass as clouds drift across a blue sky. Then listen, and hear God.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers
Relax, take a deep breath, and don’t let any feelings of anxiety derail your plans for the day. A certain level of nervousness may be in the air today but it doesn’t have to be contagious and you don’t have to catch it. If a touch of anxiety serves to give you a greater sense of caution, that can be a good thing
