Cat’s Morning Bits for June 21, 2018

The daisies are nodding o’er bending grass,
With bright eyes greeting me as I pass;
As offering sweets from a billowy knoll,
The buttercup lifteth its golden bowl;
The feathery clouds float airily by,
Flecking with silver the blue of the sky.
-Emily Thornton Charles (1845-95)
Spiritual Unite: Potent Cosmic Energies This Summer/Winter Solstice
The June Solstice falls on the 21st, the same day as the Full Moon. This is of particular significance and will amplify the cosmic energies of this already potent day.
In the Northern Hemisphere the solstice represents the starting of summer. On this day, we will have the longest period of sunlight and the shortest period of darkness.
MBG: 7 Ways To Transform Your Energy Quickly
Ever felt like your energy is just off? Sometimes we all slip into a negative or funky mood for no apparent reason. As a psychic intuitive, I know the power of energy. Changing your energy can change what shows up in your life—and how you react when it does. Try one of these quick and simple actions the next time you need an energy reboot:
Elephant Journal: Celebrate the Summer Solstice with 108 Sun Salutations.
We practice 108 Surya Namaskars to mark the close of a chapter, and invite in new energy.

MNN: Sea urchins can see just fine with their feet
The first thing anyone notices about a sea urchin is how uninviting it looks: this “porcupine of the sea” looks downright medieval with those endless rows of black spikes pointing in every direction, daring you to get too close.
EarthSky News: Summer solstice at Stonehenge
It’s summer solstice time for us in the Northern Hemisphere. This solstice occurs at the instant the sun reaches its most northerly point on the celestial sphere, the imaginary sphere of stars surrounding Earth. In 2018, the June solstice happens at 10:07 UTC on June 21; translate to your time zone. Many – perhaps you – will celebrate this solstice sunrise, or next year’s solstice sunrise, at Stonehenge. Why?
Patheos-Pagan: Midsummer Reset Ritual
Ever have a year where it seems like you look up and it’s suddenly June? Where did half the year go? I felt that yearly wave of panic as the calendar turned to June 1st. As with many of us, the year had been filled with life’s challenges.
Inner Journey: Play with the growth journey!
“Humor is the instinct for taking pain playfully.”
— Max Eastman
Banish bad baggage, backward beliefs, boring boundaries, big blocks and belittling blame by building your beingness bridge by becoming a beautiful, bold, balanced, broadminded, boundless being.
“If life doesn’t offer a game worth playing, then invent a new one.”
— Anthony J. D’Angelo
A Note from the Universe
OK, can you keep a secret?
Let me tell you what happens…
There’ll be trumpets, fanfare, and parades. Happy tears, giggles, and hugs. Shrieks of joy, fits of laughter, and reunions with best friends.
There will be quiet, reflection, and revelations. Aha’s! No-way’s! And, of course, You-have-to-be-kidding’s!
Eventually followed by a deep, often surprising, longing for what will by then be viewed as the dream-life you led.
You could plot it on a chart.
The point of course, is that you are now living that dream-life.
Today’s Recipe: Strawberry Lemonade
Simple and delicious! You can make any summer time drinks or refreshers by adding fresh fruit to any of your favorite beverages. I made a 2 quart pitcher of my favorite lemonade. You can make this from scratch or use Crystal light or what ever summer beverage you like.

“We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.”-Nelson Mandela
Part of our purpose in life lies in our creativity. We are each an individual expression of God, and we each have a special contribution to bring to this planet. What makes your heart sing? What do you love to do? When you are doing that, you are expressing the divine presence within you. It’s joyful, it’s glorious!
