Inner Journey:


“Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do.”
— Kathleen Winsor

When we clearly set an intention, our conscious and subconscious minds mobilize to help us meet that intention. At the start of each day, thoroughly review what commitments you have made to others for the day, and decide what commitment(s) you will make for yourself.

What can you do today that will move you one step closer to your personal goals? Own your power to choose to meet your own needs. After all, we are much better able to help others when our own needs are met. And at the end of the day, when you’ve honoured your commitment to yourself, acknowledge your success.

“If you want to make good use of your time, you’ve got to know what’s most important and then give it all you’ve got.”
— Lee Iacocca


A Note from the Universe

The person who remembers they can always reach out and help others never runs out of things to do, always has friends, and rarely needs advice.

You are rich,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
October 3, 2022


“I break up through the skin of awareness a thousand times a day, as dolphins burst through seas, and dive again, and rise, and dive.”

-Annie Dillard, An American Childhood (1987)

How many of our waking hours do we spend actually “aware?” This is a beautiful analogy, I can just picture the dolphins playing, experiencing the freedom and joy that is theirs with every magnificent dive into the beautiful ocean. That same joy is ours, as well. We just need to break up through that skin of awareness and experience it!

-Lissa Coffey


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.
