MBG: Social Media Really Does Cause Depression. Here Are 6 Ways To Make It A Healthier Habit

We’ve known for a while that social media use is linked to symptoms of depression and loneliness, primarily by causing FOMO-related anxiety (i.e., fear of missing out on experiences with your friends, or at least knowing what everybody’s up to) or by making us constantly compare our lives and bodies to those of random internet people.

Daily Good: K9s for Warriors: Together We Stand

Sometimes it’s not the human who rescues the dog, but the dog who rescues the human. K9s for Warriors, a program based out of Ponte Verda, Florida, was established in 2011 to help soldiers experiencing PTSD and other war trauma disabilities. The dogs are trained to be service dogs and address symptoms in their owners such as anxiety, isolation, depression, and nightmares, often serving in conjunction with traditional treatments like medication and psychotherapy. To date, the program has rescued more than 850 dogs and 440 military service members, with an astounding 99% program success rate. “Service dogs are prescriptions on four legs,” says owner Shari Duvall. Read on to learn more about the inspiring stories behind the soldiers and their canine warriors

MNN: 10 cultural variations on Thanksgiving

Harvest festivals around the globe

Thanksgiving is defined by oversized meals with family or close friends (not to mention football games, parades and other modern additions). Historians still debate the origin of American Thanksgiving, but the most common narrative attributes it to early North American pilgrims, who held feasts to celebrate successful harvests. The concept of celebrating agricultural success dates back much further than the 17th century. Ancient Greeks, South Asians, and Celts all marked harvest holidays.

EarthSky News: Leonids peak mornings are November 17 and 18

The famous Leonid meteor shower is expected to be at its best in the predawn hours on Saturday, November 17, and Sunday, November 18, 2018. We give the nod to Saturday, November 17, because there will be less moonlight to intrude on the show.

Patheos-Pagan: Of Light & Shadow: Anubis, God of the Modern Age

I can’t tell you exactly how old I was the first time I encountered Anubis, but I was rather young. I was likely around 5 years old, and it was a chilly, but pleasantly sunny autumn day. My grandfather and I were out on one of our nature walks, this time in a wooded area just a few miles outside of our small town in the Midwest.

Inner Journey:

SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY

“Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Racing through life is very stressful. If we stay in high gear too long, we lose our ability to shift down. And when we’re stressed, we can’t access happiness, appreciation, fun, compassion, generosity, awareness of beauty and other wonderful qualities.High stress also triggers negative emotions like frustration, impatience, anger and fear.

Life has so much to offer if we will slow down and truly experience it. We must always remember that we are the ones in control of the accelerator. We CAN choose to brake.

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast — you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”
— Eddie Cantor

Laughter

“A good laugh is sunshine in a house.” -William Makepeace Thackeray

Norman Cousins discovered personally, and wrote eloquently, about the healing power of laughter. Laughter is good medicine. When we laugh, we can’t help but feel good. We feel good around people who laugh, people who enjoy life and can express themselves so freely.

Here’s a little story I heard that might get you giggling:

A wealthy man dies and goes to Heaven. He brings with him all of his earthly belongings when he meets St. Peter at the gate. St. Peter says: “Oh, my… you know, you can’t bring any of that in here.” The man pleads his case, he worked so hard for everything and can’t bear to leave it all behind. Finally St. Peter agrees to discuss the situation with his boss, who says, “Fine, let him bring in just one suitcase.” The man is overjoyed! He goes through everything and loads up one of his largest bags and presents it to St. Peter for inspection. It is filled to the brim with solid gold bars. St. Peter looks at his quizzically and says: “You brought pavement?”

Transformation Time: Cat’s Angel Message for November 16, 2018 

November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts.  Remember that POSITIVE opens and draws and NEGATIVE closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


The power of the Wizard lives within me. I call upon its magic at will – transforming Fear into Love. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


1116:  We often hear that our thoughts create reality. This is very true and to make this happen we must use our inner magic which includes how we choose to perceive things. By focusing on the good things in our lives  the happier we tend to be. Today the Universe is reminding us that when we stay positive and keep our expectations high we discover that we are far better off than we realized. The Universe and it’s helpers make sure that we have what we need and when we combine this with our willingness to help ourselves we find that we have the power to manifest a steady flow of material supply. Step into YOUR power as a creator today and don’t forget to offer thanks for what you have and for the blessings headed your way!


The angel Gamaliel brings us gifts, blessings and abundance, while Archangel Jophiel helps us to see the wonderful things that we already have and promotes gratitude. The Hindu god Ganesh helps to remove obstacles from our path including the ones we have created for ourselves and the Ascended Master Jesus teaches us that anything is possible including miracles.


Try the following Sacred Stones to bring your gratitude forward: Rose Quartz helps us to show and embrace universal love, Tiger’s Eye teaches us the difference between wishful thinking and what you really need,  and Pink Sapphire draws the things we need into our lives that will aid our personal evolution.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Nov.15, 2018 “Giving a Lift”

 

Happy Friday!

We all have the ability to lift others up. The importance of this can be seen during times of failure. We can all can see when someone is struggling with something yet trying their best to fix it or make things better. Although we may not be able to actually help them there is something that we can do. We can offer words of encouragement. While this may seem like a small thing, these words of encouragement will last far longer and mean more than any words of praise.

MBG: The One Ritual I Swear By When I’m Stressed, Anxious & Uncertainty Prevails

Let me preface this by saying that tarot is something I’ve only dabbled in—I’m certainly not an expert nor am I claiming to be! Tarot has been presented to me by healers in one-on-one sessions, my own research, and, of course, Instagram. I’d written about tarot in my book, the Spirit Almanac, but didn’t practice it regularly on my own. I’d be remiss not to mention that this is about finding my own groove with tarot, a method that fits with my lifestyle, and that’s what I’m sharing here, not an official method of any kind.

Herbal Muse Press: Herbal Dream Pillows

Herb and spice-filled pillows are a delightful way to induce relaxation and sleep by natural means. They’re fun to assemble and they make wonderful gifts!

For centuries, the fragrance of herbs have been captured in pillows and sweet bags to purify and scent the home. They were known by European mothers anxious to lure their offspring into tranquil sleep, by those seeking relief from headache or depression, and by the solitary who yearned to find true love.

MNN: Who needs small talk? Not the Finnish (or me)

When I was single and dating, my friends made fun of me for jumping into deep conversations with guys I just met.
I’ve never been interested in small talk, or its cousin, flirting. I’m genuinely curious to get to know people, and I’d rather not talk if it’s going to be about nonsense. Turns out, I have something in common with the “silent Finns” who are also known for not talking small, but diving into meaningful conversation — or none at all.

Patheos-Pagan: Witchin’ in the Kitchen: Recipes and Blessings for Thanksgiving Feasts

As the Thanksgiving feast day approaches, it’s time to get down to meal-planning. I feed folks of all dietary needs at my table, so over the years I’ve adapted recipes to suit all sorts of palettes; carnivores to vegans, traditional to exotic, and many of them gluten-free. As much as I love the traditional foods I grew up with in the southeast, I like to put an international twist on ’em, just to keep folks guessing.

LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”
— Aldous Huxley

What was your peak experience of this past week? What was your most challenging experience?

Stepping back to review your week can offer many insights. Normally we can’t see the forest for the trees. Now back away and see the whole forest. Review your week. Now write a short summary — whatever comes to mind for you. If action is required, plan how you will accomplish it in the next week.

“Ask the experienced rather than the learned.”
— Arabic proverb

“Experience is that marvellous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.”
— Franklin P. Jones

Laughter

“A good laugh is as good as a prayer sometimes.” -L.M. Montgomery

Laughter heightens our senses so that we feel joy. And when we feel joy, we feel our connection with God. Having that feeling of oneness is like a prayer, it’s comforting, it’s cleansing. Laugh, and share the joy.

Producing Outstanding Results: Cat’s Angel Message for November 15, 2018 

November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts.  Remember that POSITIVE opens and draws and NEGATIVE closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results. – Tony Robbins


1115:  The Universe is asking us to raise our thoughts to a higher level. By allowing ourselves to rise above negativity we are able to create positive changes. This opens the way for new cool and groovy things. There are times when it seems like the universe has given us too much to handle and our vibrations and energy plummet. The key lies in our ability to recognize the things that we can work with now as opposed to the things that are out of our control. We always have the option of putting things on the back burner until we have the necessary components to solve the issue or it works out on it’s own. This frees our energy so that we can concentrate on what’s important.


Archangel Jophiel helps us to bounce back from negative situations by showing us all the good things in other areas of of our lives. Remember that goodness and beauty surround us all the time, so stay open to receiving these blessings. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey brings us the necessary spiritual insight we need when dealing with negative people, feelings or situations. By surrounding yourself with loving energy you can find the peace you need to deal with off color moments. And the Hawaiian goddess Pele can show us the way to prioritizing, goal setting and doing things more efficiently. She says that  “Within you lives the sacred fire that gives life to your greatest dreams and passions. This part of you must be allowed to come forward, not smothered beneath fear, resentment or the expectations of others. Your fire will help you forge new paths!”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Lepidolite. This soft lavender stone helps us to focus on the important things and filter out any distractions that come knocking, while it soothes the emotions and removes stress as it supports discovery of our higher self.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Daily Good: How to Break the Loop of Our Destructive Patterns

When we’re afraid, we often find ourselves caught up in habitual ways of responding that fail to bring us the relief we seek. “To keep repeating a baleful pattern without recognizing that we are caught in its loop is one of life’s greatest tragedies; to recognize it but feel helpless in breaking it is one of our greatest trials; to transcend the fear of uncertainty, which undergirds all such patterns of belief and behavior, is a supreme triumph.” In a beautiful response to Vincent Van Gogh’s 1884 letter to his brother on fear and risk-taking, novelist Nicole Krauss sheds light on how rather than being governed by our fears, we can recognize the opportunity to step outside of them and ultimately overcome them

Coffey Talk: Numerology of Number 4

As we continue our series on Vedic Numerology, today we take a look at the number 4.

Those born on day 4, 13, 22, or 31 in any month are ruled by the number 4, and by Rahu. Rahu is one of the two nodes of the moon, the other being Ketu. Rahu is the north node of the moon, it is active and works primarily on mental energy. Rahu can bring confusion and dissatisfaction. It can also great talent in the arts, painting, writing and editing. It can cause 4 people to be suspicious or secretive, and this can cause problems in their family life. They often have the ability to see the unseen. They make good spies and detectives.

Rahu has been described by astrologers as smoky. It has no shape on its own and is always changing, and when present it obscures the shape of what is nearby. Rahu gives 4 people intelligence, courage, and patience.

4 people are prone to lots of changes in their lives. They get used to this, and take it in stride. However, this tends to make them uncertain, so they often seek the advice of others. 4 people root for the underdog. This is probably because they often face opposition and can relate. They are flexible, easily adjusting themselves in social situations. They can be stubborn and unconventional, but they are also efficient and organized. They like to make a difference; they advocate for social and environmental reform, and they often go into politics. They are not afraid of facing opposition and can often be selfish. They need to take care not to isolate themselves or they could get depressed.

Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays are generally good days for 4 people. Blue, grey and khaki are favorable colors.

There is a saying that when 4’s appear, angels are near. 4 is all about safety, security and stability. When you see 4’s repeated it’s basically the universe saying to you “don’t worry, I’ve got you.”

Glen Campbell and Jack Nicholson were both born on April 22 – a 4 day in a 4 month!

Patheos-Pagan: You Are Your Own Spiritual Authority

Witch, Pagan, Neo-Pagan, Wiccan, and so on. These are all labels, titles, words to allow us to fit ourselves into little boxes. They are also words that create an us vs. them mentality. “I am not a Wiccan.” “You shouldn’t capitalize neopagan.” And my ever favorite and constant argument, “Well, actually, that tradition you practice in is only XX years old.” We spend a lot of time telling other people what does or doesn’t make their practice legit. We waste a lot of energy ‘othering’ those whose practices aren’t in perfect alignment with our own.

Personally I’m rather tired of it.

Inner Journey:

QUESTION YOUR INTENTION

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else ….”
— Archibald Alexander

Why are you doing what you are doing?

Throughout the day, continually ask yourself about your underlying motivation. Are you doing what you are doing for selfish, manipulative or fearful reasons, or in honest service? Maybe you will see that much of your activity lacks purpose. This is a great way to become more conscious.

Your intention and motives are fundamental to the results you receive. Set high intentions and your life will blossom.

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Note from the Universe

Do you know what tickles me?

Besides you.

For every single time-space manifestation, from catching a cold to the accumulation of massive personal wealth, a shifting of props and persons must be choreographed from here with mind-boggling precision. Taking into account not only all of your other thoughts, beliefs, and expectations as they change from moment to moment, but those of everyone else on the planet, so that not one of you, not one, is ever denied getting exactly what you think about.

And to answer the often unasked question, “Yes, you can still have it all, no matter what others in your life might think, say, or do.”

Talk about multi-tasking –

Laughter

“Life can be wildly tragic at times, and I’ve had my share. But whatever happens to you, you have to keep a slightly comic attitude. In the final analysis, you have got not to forget to laugh.”

-Katharine Hepburn

Most of comedy is built on tragedy – the slip on the banana peel, the pie in the face, the big misunderstanding. And we laugh because we can relate – we’ve been there. In movies there can only be so much drama before we’re offered up some “comic relief.” Writers know that audiences need a break in their emotions or they just go numb. Yes, life is tragic, and life can also be hysterically funny. Have you ever had one of those things happen where you say: “We’re going to look back on this and laugh one day?” We all have. And you know what? That day does come when we laugh – and it feels good.
