Happy Wednesday,

Daily Dream Meaning: Hiding

1. If the dreamer is doing the hiding, there is a part of him that is “hidden,” even from him, that perhaps needs to come to the surface and be looked at.
2. If the dreamer hides an object from someone else, then he is concealing something that perhaps needs to be revealed.
3. If the dreamer is searching for someone or something, there is something missing, either an idea or an actual object, that she needs to find and make use of. Other symbols in the dream could reveal exactly what that is.
Astrological parallels: Pluto, Scorpio.
Tarot parallel: The Moon.

Inner Journey:

BEING GENUINE

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

When we don’t know who we are — or if we are afraid to be who we are — we betray ourselves. We pretend to be who we think we are. Our self image is made up of our experiences, desires and other people’s ideas and expectations of us.

Maintaining this false self is a betrayal of ourselves. In all deep spiritual journeys, there is the experience of betrayal. Betrayal always tells us to adjust our life to be more authentic. What we identify with is all important.

There are large betrayals (e.g., your partner leaving you) and small betrayals (e.g., disappointments). They are all experiences of being wounded for the purpose of breaking down the defenses of the personality. When we allow the wounding and accept the betrayals as divine gifts, we greatly benefit.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
— Dr. Seuss (via Elena)

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

Consistency
“Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.”

-Aldous Huxley

 
It is our nature to grow and to change. We evolve. We learn. Sometimes we shake things up with our new views and opinions – but that just promotes more growth. Sometimes we have to prune the dead branches from a tree in order for the new buds to have room to grow and for the tree to be healthy and thrive. We can prune away our outdated thinking, and leave room for expansion

-Lissa Coffey

Spirit Library: Use Divine Truth to Embrace Joy

As your awareness of yourselves as spiritual beings grows, you see the human side in a different way and your awareness of your truth, as well as the potential for new self truths, is expanded with each step on the ascension path. And with that awareness you find new levels of truth and understanding. This can often include the things you do not like about yourselves because you now see the areas where you lacked faith or did not use your power

Patheos-Pagan: Animism and the Power of Waterfalls

Waterfalls are places of spiritual power. On some level, most people can sense this to be true. Maybe we cannot express exactly that uplifting feeling inside. Maybe we just rush on to the next thing. But for those of us who stay and really feel, waterfalls provide not just a sense of wonder, but a way to expand our own spirits.

Inner Journey:

PRACTICE DETACHMENT

As our consciousness rises, our perspective becomes more and more impersonal. What does this mean?

It means we are increasingly able to view our lives and the rest of the world with detachment. This does not mean we are cold and uncaring. Rather, we are self- contained. We have well-defined boundaries and we are able to think and act objectively, clearly and responsibly.

When we have learned detachment, we do not get hooked into the thoughts and feelings of others. We are not easily upset or manipulated. We may feel compassion for others but this does not cloud our ability to choose how we think, feel and behave. We also do not need others to behave in any particular way.

“Until we take how we see ourselves (and how we see others) into account, we will be unable to understand how others see and feel about themselves and their world. Unaware, we will project our intentions on their behavior and call ourselves objective.”
— Stephen Covey

Thought For the Day: Jan.7 2019 “Vitally Alive”

Happy Monday,

The new year means that we make “resolutions” designed to make us better, healthier, more active etc. Most of these “resolutions” last only a short time as we become too busy, too lazy or simply lose interest.

But here’s something to think about. What IF our “resolutions” consisted of “Doing things that made us feel alive, brought us joy or peace or just what makes our spirits sing? Be vibrant, be alive, be yourself!

Thought For The Day: June 4, 2018 “Rock It Baby!”

Happy Monday,

Are you afraid to be yourself? Are you concerned that if you “be yourself” that other people will think less of you or not like you? (It’s not true you know…)Sadly there are a lot of people out there who feel this way. No one is perfect and everyone is unique. There will always be someone who wants you to be what/who you’re not. These people often don’t have your best interest at heart, they just want to make you over into what they think you should be. Always be yourself, that uniquely beautiful soul with the weird sense of humor, and individual style! Rock it baby!

A Bountiful Moment

Always be yourself because the people that matter don’t mind, and the ones who mind, don’t matter. Dr, Seuss

Daily Thought: Never be afraid to act upon your wildest dreams and desires. Live loud and proud! Being who you are takes courage so always remember that the people who are most important will never be unkind in their judgement of what you are thinking. The individuals who offer support, encouragement and a perspective of “you can but be on the lookout for” are the only individuals who should be a factor in what you do and what you are planning to act on.

Daily Practice: Take an objective look at your current relationships. Who are they with and how are they serving you? If they are critical and make you question yourself in a negative way they are most likely a relationship that needs boundaries. If they are relationships that are honest and allow you to be who you are without judgement take the opportunity to develop them and use them as a sounding board for your growth.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Inner Journey: Going for guilt-free play

“There is no pleasure in having nothing to do. The fun is in having lots to do and not doing it.”
— Mary Little

When you’re tempted with a promise of pleasure, does guilt promptly spoil it for you?

For many of us, the work ethic still rules supreme. It keeps our life out of balance and our health at risk. There will always be lots of work to do. We can’t wait for it to go away to enjoy ourselves.

Today, we invite you to become aware of your attitude towards rest, relaxation, pleasure and fun. When you give yourself a break, do you carry guilt through it? Deep down, do you believe that you don’t deserve to have a good time, that you haven’t earned a holiday? If you do discover these thoughts, send them packing.

“Guilt is the source of sorrows, the avenging fiend that follows us behind with whips and stings.”
— Nicholas Rowe

Happy Friday,

Normal? Who wants to be normal??  Our thought for the day is a reminder to always be yourself. There will always be people who want to change you and try to mold you into someone who is boring and conventional. Never be afraid to show the real you to the world. We are all amazing, and unique beings. We all have our own personality, humor and ways of doing things. If someone can’t accept you the way you are then maybe some cords need to be cut. Remember, there are  people out there who will love you for just being you!
