December Quotes“Somewhere across the winter world tonight
You will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance…something we can share.

You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well,
And you will see these same stars in your sky
And wish upon that brightest one that fell.

I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see —
Tonight I glimpse beyond the hear and now.

And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart.”

Mary E. Linton, Candlelit Heart

Spirit Library: Healing Words From White Buffalo Calf Woman
Gillian MacBeth-Louthan

The upcoming energies ask you to come to a place of balance within yourself, not worrying if thy neighbor is in balance, or thy husband is in balance or thy boss is in balance. Balance begins and ends with you. It is not your concern what another is doing, or thinking as their learning experience is personalized.

Patheos-Pagan: Calling Back the Magick of Joy

Inner Journey:


“Our purpose is hidden in our joy, our inspiration, our excitement. As we act on what shows up in our life our purpose shows up.”
— James King

For many of us, our joy is truly activated when we get a bigger picture of who we are and why we are here.

Most of us need to enlarge our self-concept. We may see ourselves as a bag of bones but, in truth, we are eternal, multi-faceted and multi-dimensional spiritual beings having a human experience. It’s time to think of ourselves as much larger and grander than just a physical and emotional being confined in a body.

“There is no more important step you can take than to define your life’s purpose. It develops your sense of belonging to our universe.”
— Arnold Patent


A Note from the Universe

If I had seams, they’d burst. Limits, they’d shatter. Doubts, they’d vanish. Tears, they’d dry. Worries, they’d be gone. Because I, your faithful servant and doting guardian, who hears your innermost thoughts, who walks in your shoes, and who lingers in your breath, can hardly contain the joy I feel over who you’ve become.

Of course, you have little idea of what I’m talking about, but you will. And trust me, you’ll be overwhelmed, too.

Daily Tarot: The Fool
This is one of those days when everything is up in the air and you doubt that you could do much even if you tried. Nonetheless, things can go well when some unexpected good luck comes your way. Your carefree attitude can attract some unexpected help to keep you going and to make things interesting if not fun. Uncertainty can be inspiring in its own way.
