Inner Journey:


“Once a human being has arrived on this earth, communication is the largest single factor determining what kinds of relationships he makes with others and what happens to him in the world about him.”
— Virginia Satir

How do you typically communicate? Is it through words, gestures, emotions, thoughts, desires, needs, truths, direct perception or intuition? Do you focus more on the other person or on yourself? Do you typically tell, ask or listen?

For a few days, set an intention to be aware of your communication styles and skills. After you’ve spent some time talking with someone, reflect on what your underlying motives were and what level of depth you reached. Write your insights in your journal. This exercise will help you become more aware and conscious of who you are and why you do what you do.

“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversation with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
— Thomas Moore

“You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight to our hearts.”
— Cochise

Daily Wisdom
October 5, 2022


“Eden is that old-fashioned House

We dwell in every day

Without suspecting our abode

Until we drive away.”

-Emily Dickinson

It’s kind of like that song that goes: “You don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone…” Know what you’ve got – you’ve got SO much!!! We have everything, all of nature, all of creation, all of the infinite possibilities for our lives. And we’ve got it right here, and right now – open up your awareness to it, accept it, embrace it!

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Tower

Some days something blows up and there’s nothing you can do. It has nothing to do with you, actually; you just happen to be there. While today will probably be uneventful, you may feel emotionally vulnerable and find yourself imaging one worst case scenario after another. Consider these imaginings as drills or dress rehearsals and don’t let any of this unnerve you. You’re fine and will be fine no matter what.
