The Wild Hunt: People make offerings to Tutu Pelé as the lava flows
HAWAII — While a Hawaiian volcano continues to spew forth destruction on one Hawaiian island, many forget that it was this same activity that created all the Hawaiian Islands. Destruction transforms into creation. The Hawaiian goddess, Tutu Pelé (Madame Pele) lives in, or is, the Kilauea Volcano. She has become one of the most well-known […] Read More:

MBG: 4 Steps To Manifesting Abundance When You’re Always Worried About Not Having Enough

Why do we work so hard every day? To live an abundant, happy life in which all our financial needs are met. But when working harder and longer hours isn’t being reflected back to us in our bank balance, we need to look at our mindset about money.

Elephant Journal: How Energy Healing helped me Discover who I am & Create a Life I Love.

Who else has ever felt disconnected from themselves and their lives—like something is wrong, or they’re not quite whole?
It’s common for many of us, especially those who were raised to follow others’ expectations regarding what we should do with our lives.
I used to feel this way.

From the otherworldly rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula to the towering volcanic peak of Mount Rainier, the state of Washington is land of many grand natural wonders. While these larger-than-life destinations are bound to dominate a Pacific Northwest travel itinerary, one other fascinating yet little-known locale is Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve.

Patheos-Pagan: Searing Sun, the Hurricane’s Howl: What Can We Do About Climate Change?

When we think of the Divine in Nature, we think of nature’s beauty – the green earth and the white moon among the stars – but nature can be frightening as well as beautiful. Our ancestors venerated nature because they feared as well as loved it, because they knew they were totally dependent on something more powerful than themselves. In contemporary Pagan rituals, we domesticate the elements.

Inner Journey: 

TIME TO CHANGE DIRECTION?

“Employ the power of positive quitting. Most of us view quitting as something negative, but it’s not. ‘Winners never quit,’ we’re told, when, in reality, winners quit all the time: choosing to stop doing things that aren’t creating the results they desire. When you quit all the things that aren’t working for you, when you quit tolerating all the negative things that hold you back, you’ll create a positive ‘charge’ in your life as well as create the space in your life for more positive experiences.”
— Jim Allen

“I like thinking of possibilities. At any time, an entirely new possibility is liable to come along and spin you off in an entirely new direction. The trick, I’ve learned, is to be awake to the moment.”
— Doug Hall

“Persons and societies do not submit passively to surroundings and events. They make choices as to the places where they live and the activities in which they engage — choices based on what they want to be, to do and to become. Furthermore, persons and societies often change their goals and ways; they can even retrace their steps and start in a new direction if they believe they are on a wrong course. Thus, whereas animal life is prisoner of biological evolution which is essentially irreversible, human life has the wonderful freedom of social evolution which is rapidly reversible and creative. Wherever human beings are concerned, trend is not destiny.”
— Rene Dubos

Freedom

“I believe in freedom – social, economical, domestic, political, mental and spiritual.” -Elbert Hubbard

Freedom is all-encompassing; you can’t have one “kind” of freedom without all the others. I remember Deepak Chopra talking about the 25 qualities of the Unified Field. Scientists have studied this Field, which could also be called “all of nature,” and identified 25 qualities that it has. Because we are one with this Field, these are qualities inherent in each of us, too. Number 24 on the list: Freedom.

Beliefnet: The 7 Greatest Strengths of an Introvert

What others might call weakness is an introvert’s greatest strength.

If you’re an introvert, it can seem like the world just isn’t built for you. From the very beginning, others have tried to change you, telling you to “come out of your shell” so that you can get the most out of life.

But, as an introvert, you know that some of the greatest pleasures of life come from within. What others take for shyness, you know to be thoughtfulness.

New Ideas, New Paths: Cat’s Angel Message for May 23, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

New Ideas, New Paths: Cat’s Angel Message for May 23, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


When an idea reaches critical mass there is no stopping the shift its presence will induce. – Marianne Williamson


523:  We have divine assistance on our side in the form of the Universe and it’s helpers. While this assistance is important it is more so when we are going through problems or changes. Many are experiencing major life changes and the angels message is one of encouragement. ” We are here to help you , please don’t be afraid of what is taking place in your life. It is through times of change that your purpose and mission are revealed. These changes also bring you great blessings that open new doors and help you create the life you want!”  Today’s message is all about embracing change with an attitude of excitement and expectation. Continue to work in your inner garden to make room for new growth. Above all remember to have faith in yourself and the universe.  let yourself explore as you embrace your confidence and  find new ways of being and doing.


Archangel Chamuel provided help with relationships, including the one we have with ourselves. A strong relationship helps to make our journey through change smooth and successful. The Ascended Master Saint Germain guides us through the process of making room for new things. His gentle presence helps us to keep going when things get tough and gives us the courage to meet new challenges and the Hindu Goddess Kali oversees the ending of cycles and transformations. Kali is a powerful lady and her energy is like a storm that clears away what we no longer need and replaces it with focus for new beginnings, and the courage and motivation we need to see things through.


Our Sacred Stones for today is Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by  stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking. Eulite is also useful for building solid relationships.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: May 23, 2018 “The Things We Go Through”

Happy Wednesday,

Our thought for today is about life lessons. We all go through things that change us. Change who we are, how we think, and how we see the world and life in general. It helps us to grow on personal, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. It makes us stronger and helps to expand our vision to encompass more than just ourselves. Today’s challenge, look back at the person you were last year and acknowledge how you have grown!

Spirituality and Healing: 3 Steps to Detox your Emotions

Emotional detox is not to rid your body of what you may consider negative emotions, but rather to clear out the ones that have stagnated.

Emotions are one of life’s gifts; they offer us a way to experience the full spectrum of what it means to be alive. When we have a healthy relationship to our emotional experience, we can appreciate what each has to offer, from sadness to joy.

MBG: Holy Basil: Benefits For Your Mood, Mind & Body

Holy basil is a plant native to India, where it has been cultivated for nearly 2,000 years. Healers call it tulsi, the Queen of Herbs, the “Incomparable One,” and it is prominent in ayurveda and Hinduism for its various therapeutic applications. Its reputation makes it one of the most prized healing plants in the Orient. Healers from past and present have used the leaf, stem, flower, root, and seeds of holy basil, Latin name Ocimum tenuiflorum or Ocimum sanctum, commonly called tulsi in therapeutic tradition.

Elephant Journal: An Open Letter to the Hardened Pieces of my Heart

I’ve met too many hardened hearts thus far.
I’ve engaged with too many steel walls, spiked barracks, and stone-cold defenses.
I’ve felt my own torn, scarred, dragon-skin heart go thick in protection.

But, in my safest moments, I remember what it feels like to be soft.

MNN: Naturalist uses cartoons to advocate for the planet

As animals adapt to a rapidly changing planet, wildlife conservation has become a critical issue. Many scientific books have been written on the issue, but none like Rosemary Mosco’s “Birding Is My Favorite Video Game.”

Her whimsical book features cartoons that are both funny and jam-packed with important facts about animals, plants, fungi, bacteria and most importantly, conservation. She artfully weaves together science and art — something we explored when we first introduced you to her Bird and Moon comics. Her uniquely unstuffy approach teaches readers surprising and unusual facts about nature that they may not have known.

EarthSky News: Deneb, tail of Cygnus the Swan

Tonight, look for Deneb, the brightest star in the constellation Cygnus the Swan. The night sky chart at the top of this post presents the view toward the northeast in mid-to-late evening during the month of May. It’s the view from mid-northern latitudes. It’s by looking in this direction that you can get a good look at the bright star Deneb, which should be visible even in tonight’s moon-drenched skies

Inner Journey: 

ON DEATH AND DYING

“Don’t strew me with roses after I’m dead. When Death claims the light of my brow No flowers of life will cheer me: instead You may give me my roses now!”
— Thomas F. Healey

“The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.”
— Hermann Hesse

“What is here is also there; what is there, is also here. Who sees multiplicity but not the one indivisible Self must wander on and on from death to death.”
— Katha Upanishad

“Is death the last step? No, it is the final awakening.”
— Sir Walter Scott

A Note from the Universe

What if the coolest person on the planet didn’t know they were the coolest person on the planet, because of a few self-doubts, a few trace fears, or the occasional twang of inadequacy. Or because they somehow thought fame, or wealth, or popularity mattered. Or because they just didn’t know the effect they had on others.

It would be a pity, huh? A real travesty. And, of course, telling them wouldn’t achieve much because they’d never believe you. Never. They’d be too modest to accept it. Too naïve to see it. And, well, too cool to think it mattered.

So… well… ah… let’s just leave it at that –

Freedom

“That is the truly beautiful and encouraging aspect of freedom; no one struggles for it just for himself.”-Fanny Lewald, in Hanna Ballin Lewis, “The Education of Fanny Lewald” (1871)

If there is a lesson in our struggle for freedom, (and there always is a lesson, in any struggle) then it is that there is no separation between us. We are all one. We are not truly free until each and every one of us is free.

Beliefnet: 7 Ways to Find Your Inner Hero

We watch the news and wish there was something we could do to right wrongs. We see our neighbors struggle with issues in their lives and want to help. Or, we face a monster of a challenge in our own lives, but fear, and insecurity hold us back from taking action. As the song goes, there’s a hero inside of you and me, just waiting to rise up. Yes, there is! And here are seven ways to find that hero and let him or her go to work:

A Joyful Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

A Joyful Experience: Cat’s Angel Message for May 22, 2018 

 May Theme: This month will bring change. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things.


The great awareness comes slowly, piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of lifelong learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one. – M. Scott Peck


522: This month is about change and most of our work has been on the personal levels (mental and emotional). Today’s number however, will focus on changes to our spiritual outlook.  Positive choices, life lessons,courage, faith, insight and Universal love are all key for today. It sounds like a lot but these things are what help shape our own unique brand of spirituality. When change arrives it brings many things including a change of perspective which flows into our being on all levels including the spiritual.

The Universe is reminding us not to ignore our spirituality. Embrace it by staying strong in faith and by remaining optimistic, as it is these things that help build a strong spiritual base from which all good things grow.


Archangel Jeremiel oversees life changes. He guides us through making the best possible choices during times of change and Archangel Uriel can help with life lessons by ensuring that we learn from the past and continue to move forward with confidence. The Ascended Master Padre Pio teaches us that we can heal by embracing our spirituality and guides us through periods of spiritual growth and the Greek Goddess Nike teaches us how to acknowledge our accomplishments, which opens the doors to new ways of doing and seeing things.


Our Sacred Stone for today is Cavansite. This stone helps to guide us through major life changes as well as helping us learn from past experiences so that we don’t make the same mistakes/choices again. It also helps us to retain information that applies to spiritual  growth.

 

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: May 22, 2018 “A Gift Worth Acknowledging

Happy Tuesday,

Just a reminder today to embrace the “tiny miracles” that occur in our lives. Sometimes we find ourselves swamped with fear, worry or drama. These things cam block our view of the good  that happens. The small things matter so if it makes you smile, gives you a feeling of peace or brings you joy it’s a gift worth acknowledging!

Most of our relationships are ephemeral; rarely do they last. In times like these, a soul-to-soul connection doesn’t even exist between family members.

Inner Journey:  WORK WITH TENSION

“You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.”
— James G. Bilkey

We need tension in our lives. It’s the force of personal evolution — it sparks creativity and higher consciousness. If we’re not comfortable with a situation, we try to improve it, right?

Tension arises through our experience of opposites. These opposites fight each other as each one struggles for dominance. Tension is transformed when two opposite dimensions of reality are brought together in balance and in wholeness.

Know that tension is an integral part of growth. Instead of avoiding or resisting tension when it arises, identify the opposing forces at play. Make space for each of them to be there together and the tension will transform.

We encounter tensions between positives and negatives, mind and body, self and environment, self and others, and personality and soul – the dualities in our lives.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

Today’s Recipe: Honey Turnip Cough Syrup

My parents have been using this all-natural method to make their own cough syrup since I can remember. Turnips and honey have awesome natural antibiotic qualities to them. When they meld together, they make a fantastic medicine. This is just as effective as store-bought syrups for cough and congestion, yet it has no side effects. You can keep refilling the turnip with honey to make more of the medicine.

Freedom

“Freedom is not won on the battlefields. The chance for freedom is won there. The final battle is won or lost in our hearts and minds.”–Helen Gahagan Douglas (1945)

It is essential for our souls to feel free. We need freedom of expression, freedom of choice, to learn and grow. And yet, so many of our brothers and sisters all over the world live without that freedom. We are all one, and we feel their pain. Amidst the politics and controversy, what can we do? We can hold them in our hearts and in our minds, lift them up and know the Highest Truth for all of us. We can express gratitude for the freedom that we experience every day.
