Spirituality & Health: Sacred Geometry: Finding the Shape of Our Family Dynamics
by Dr. Taffeta Wood
Sacred geometry can become a tool for reflection and understanding—of yourself, others, and how we delineate one another in a relationship.
As someone who does parent coaching and inner child healing work, I often turn to visual metaphors in the form of sacred geometry.

By Patti Wigington
Updated on July 02, 2019
Many Pagans honor the goddess Diana (pronounced di-ANN-ah) in her various aspects. Particularly in feminist and NeoWiccan traditions, Diana holds a place in the heart of a number of modern magical practitioners. Her name is believed to come from an early Indo-European word, dyew or deyew, meaning “sky” or “heaven.”

EarthSky News: The return of Sirius signals a change in seasons
In late August and early September, look for a hint of the changing season in the predawn sky: Orion the Hunter and Sirius the Dog Star.

Patheos-Pagan: Smoke Divination: The Art of Capnomancy
AUGUST 23, 2022 BY COBY MICHAEL WARD
I didn’t know all too much about smoke divination, or capnomancy up until a year or so ago. I certainly didn’t realize how accurate and in detail it would be in regard to my life until I had a reading from Rissa Miller.

LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.”
— William James
Here is one perspective on levels of consciousness and some descriptive words to help us identify the differences:
• Not conscious – instinctual, follower
• Subconscious – habitual, robotic, reactive
• Conscious – aware, intelligent, conceptual, reflective
• Superconscious – intuitive, guiding, truthful, loving, universal
Reflect on how you typically move through your day. As we use our minds more consciously, we open up to the superconsciousness.
“Utilizing your conscious mind to direct the subconscious mind to enter into communication and harmony with the universal mind is the secret of personal power.”
— Delfin Knowledge System

“It [would be] vain for me to endeavor to interpret the Silence. She cannot be done into English.”
-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
More can be “said” in a few moments of silence than in volumes of literature. Some things are beyond translation. I could go on and on about this… but I’ll be quiet and let you find the silence instead. You’ll see.
