Pagan Playlist: Crypt Moon – Unexpected Journey


Inner Journey:

The practice of meditation helps us find the peace within that is so elusive in our outer world.

A Note from the Universe

I want you to know, that I’ve ordered up another year for you.

Think I’ll call it 2023.

I’m going to put most of the same people from 2022 in it, since you all think so much alike. But there’ll also be a few new, very cool cats coming to play—give them some time to grow up though.

And I’m going to have things start off pretty much exactly where they left off in 2022, for continuity’s sake. Flips folks out too much when I don’t.

All in all, 365 more days in paradise… and only one request of you:



Let’s do this,

Though no great demands may be made of you today, you may feel lackluster and just not setting the world on fire as you like to do. Everybody has a low energy day from time to time. Perhaps you’ve been pushing it too hard for too many days in a row and just need a short break. Don’t be lazy but be extra good to yourself. Tomorrow will be brighter.
