ThoughtCo: Threshold Blessing
How to Bless the Entrance to Your Home

If you’ve moved into a new home, it’s not a bad idea to do a magical or spiritual cleansing of the place before you get truly settled in. In addition to ritually purifying the interior of the home, many people like to do a threshold blessing, which creates a symbolic doorway to the home. You can use this blessing ritual to keep negative energy out, while allowing for positive energy to enter.

Patheos-Pagan: Seeking the Magick of Enough in the Too Much: Calling on Allies

I am grateful for the magick of moments. Ordinary and necessary.
I was sitting at my desk the other day, trying and failing to avoid the news, and I looked out the window. The winds were blowing, fresh green leaves swaying and bouncing against each other.
And in that moment, I noticed my lungs move in time with the breeze. Like the world was breathing with me. Like the world was trying to find its center too

Inner Journey:

BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

“…for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic.”
— Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews

“Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world then calls the state we were in a delusion or infatuation … But we merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magic when the morning came. …In truth, we can go to the moon and retain its magic for a lifetime.”
— Marianne Williamson

“We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests … What a pleasure to be wrong. Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure … not only are they here-and-now, they’re all that ever lived on earth! Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we’ve never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish. Intuition whispers true: We’re not dust, we’re magic!”
— Richard Bach

Today’s Deity: Ishtar

Ishtar, (Akkadian), Sumerian Inanna, in Mesopotamian religion, goddess of war and sexual love. Ishtar is the Akkadian counterpart of the West Semitic goddess Astarte. Inanna, an important goddess in the Sumerian pantheon, came to be identified with Ishtar, but it is uncertain whether Inanna is also of Semitic origin or whether, as is more likely, her similarity to Ishtar caused the two to be identified.

Everybody falls victim to a misjudgment or a faulty calculation sometimes, so don’t let that be a reason to grind to a halt and stop working on what matters to you. Sometimes deception is involved, but that does not free you from the obligation to try and set things right. It’s all about being responsible, and that’s what you want to be, anyway.

Spiritual Unite: April 2019 Ascension Energies – Future Forecasting

March Review

I hope your equinox was wonderful. It had such a beautiful quiet to it—though there had been such chaotic energy leading up to it, of course the difference was palpable.

During the March Areon channeling, I was shown pink and lavender weaving into the energy field (a deeper explanation in the April video above). The day before the equinox I saw (etherically) pink and lavender hitting the magnetosphere, looking like an aurora borealis/australis. The pink and lavender frequencies are supporting us to allow more higher-frequency Love to flow into our lives.

Daily Good: The Magic of Moss and What it Teaches Us

In Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses, world-renowned botanist/bryologist Robin Wall Kimmerer invites us to contemplate the mystery and meaning of life as viewed through her study of one of the world’s oldest plant species. This illuminating, award-winning volume of essays weaves scientific and personal observation into a lyrical tapestry that celebrates the power of attentiveness in revealing the sparkle and splendor of the natural world. Rooted in the deep and abiding respect for all living things of her Native American heritage, Kimmerer’s observations remind us that when we remain open to the possibility of what the smallest manifestations of life may reveal, we receive the gift of infinite beauty and wonder.

MNN: Vieques’ 400-year-old Ceiba tree blooms again after Hurricanes Irma and Maria

A giant, elegant ceiba tree is one of the most popular tourist attractions on Vieques, a tiny island off the coast of Puerto Rico. The island was formerly a sugar plantation, worked first by slaves for the Spanish crown, and later by agregados or sharecroppers. Once it came under U.S. rule, it was used as a bombing range by the U.S. Navy. The island was decommissioned by the Navy in 2003 after a lengthy battle with locals known as “the struggle.”

Inner Journey:

BUILD THE AWARENESS HABIT

“It is difficult to see the picture when you are inside of the frame.”
— Author Unknown

Start building the awareness habit: STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Set an intention to become aware of how you automatically react to different things in your life.

For example, how do you react to the alarm clock, the shower, traffic, work colleagues and situations, your partner or children? How do you react to anger or fear in someone else? How do you react to your own anger or fear? Become a witness to your own life. Pay attention to how you do things.

“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.”
— Abraham H. Maslow

Spiritual Unite: Astrological Guide – The Best Zodiac Advice When You’re in a Slump

Being the most commanding and determined of all the signs, Aries are born leaders. Thus, an Aries tends to feel at his absolute worst when they’re subjected to situations where they lack taking charge. So in order for an Aries to de-slump, he must always remember to play to his strengths and try burying himself with a whole new range of projects and assignments where he can actually lead the pack and make a difference

Daily Good: Mary Oliver: Poet of Awe

Mary Oliver was in a class by herself. Distinguished with a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award, she was viewed with suspicion by literary critics for her status as a kind of rock star poet. For those of us who read her like a daily liturgy, her name is synonymous with other such essential words: mystery, wild, awe, terror, devotion, gratitude, grace. All of them come alive in her simple poems, that seem to rise from the crossroad of nature and spirituality, brimming with good questions. Fabiana Fondevila begins her process of saying goodbye in this essay full of beautiful snippets from the poet who helped so many of us find our way home to devotion and prayer through wonder and awe.

Add hostas to the list of plants you may have your yard that serve double duty as both edible and ornamental. The entire plant can be eaten — from the young shoots that emerge from the ground in early spring to the flowers that bloom in mid-late summer — but it’s most common to eat the shoots. The shoots can be sliced up and eaten raw in salads, or they can be cooked and prepared in a number of ways.

EarthSky News: Is Sirius the most luminous star?

Tonight – March 24, 2019 – look outside, and you can’t miss Sirius, the brightest star in the nighttime sky. Is Sirius the most luminous star? No. To astronomers, the word luminous refers to a star’s intrinsic brightness. 

Sirius, in the constellation Canis Major (the Greater Dog), looks extraordinarily bright in Earth’s sky. It’s our sky’s brightest star. But its brightness stems primarily from the fact that it’s only 8.6 light-years away.

Patheos-Pagan: Exploring Daily Practice

A few years ago I started going to the gym on a regular basis. I would listen to music on my headphones (earbuds, whatever) and walk on the treadmill while my daughter was in karate class.

Inner Journey: 

DO YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF?

“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
— Orison Swett Marden

What do you believe about yourself?

If you are experiencing a lack of something in your life, chances are that you hold a belief in your subconscious that says you aren’t worthy of having that quality. Write in your journal the answer to these questions for yourself:
• Where are you not good enough, not worthy enough?
• How willing are you to receive?

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
— e. e. cummings

Transformation

“The sacred call is transformative. It is an invitation to our souls, a mysterious voice reverberating within, a tug on our hearts that can neither be ignored nor denied. It contains, by definition, the purest message and promise of essential freedom. It touches us at the center of our awareness. When such a call occurs and we hear it – really hear it – our shift to higher consciousness is assured.”

-David A. Cooper, 1994

In this passage, David Cooper writes about the shofar, the ram’s horn sounded in synagogue services during the Ten Days of Penitence. But there are a lot of different ways that ‘the sacred call’ may be expressed. The fact that we are pursuing our spiritual growth, that we are allowing ourselves to be more of who we really are, shows that we have heard that call! We know that life has meaning, and we are transforming our own lives to reflect that.

-Lissa Coffey

Elephant Journal: Is “Maitri” really about Self-Care? ~ Linda Lewis

There’s much confusion these days about the term “maitri,” a Sanskrit term meaning “loving-kindness.”
You often hear people say things like, “I just want to stay home and hibernate, stressless, and not relate. I need a little maitri in my life.”
While there’s nothing wrong with just staying home sometimes, the idea of self-care is not necessarily the Buddhist view of maitri.

Inner Journey:

SEEK INSIGHTS

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
— Aristotle

INSIGHTS happen only when we shift to a higher, more inclusive perspective. As we grow in wisdom and experience, we become less attached to the form of reality and more aware of its spiritual side – its qualities, values and meaning. As we get to know ourselves as souls, we begin to let go of the self-consciousness of the ego. This allows us to more effectively include others and work with the whole picture.

When there is more in sight, we get more insights.

Try becoming aware of those times when you focus on differences. At those times, STOP and PAY ATTENTION and IDENTIFY SIMILARITIES INSTEAD. See how all parts fit into a bigger picture. Expand your perspectives. Find common causes, motives and needs. Go to another level of thinking and problem solving. Be open to using more imagination and creativity. Shift your thinking from “either/or” to “both/and” and be prepared for more insights.

“Insight occurs when, and to the degree that, one knows oneself.”
— Andrew Schneider

“We are not what we know. We are what we are willing to learn.”
— Council on Ideas

Everything that we have gone through in our lives has come to shape our character. How we assimilate these experiences into our personality determines the strength of our character. Life is not easy – and it’s not boring! Every day offers us up opportunities to learn and grow and develop into the person we aspire to be.

Tetrakyts: The Stoic Witch – Why You Should Integrate Stoicism Into Your Practice

Witchcraft is on the rise, as shown by the interest that people seem to show toward this subject on the internet. Thus, nowadays, a growing number of sources can guide the beginner witch in her (or his) journey into the world of witchcraft. However, a problem arises when so many actors take part in some activity, and that problem is that not all sources are equal.

Patheos-Pagan: 4 Mundane Skills To Support Your Spiritual Work 

There are two popular attitudes around the role of the spiritual and the mundane in our lives and both of them are wrong.
One says that everything is spiritual. We’re in constant communion with all living beings. Our Gods and ancestors walk beside us every step. We inhale energy and exhale magic. All those pesky little things like rent and disease and a dysfunctional society? Those are just distractions on our path toward enlightenment.

Inner Journey:

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW

“There is in all visible things – a hidden wholeness.”
— Thomas Merton

“From a hologrammatic viewpoint, …you are one little physical image that reflects all of humanity when projected spiritually upon the cosmic screen.”
— Wayne Dyer

“As above, so below.”

Everything is connected. The universe is a hologram where every part contains the whole. Outside echoes the inside. The lower is a reflection of the higher. The other is a reflection of you. We are all a microcosm of each other. The big picture is within us and even our cells.

Be open to see the interconnections, influences and inter-relationships of things.

“Unity consciousness is a state of enlightenment where we pierce the mask of illusion which creates separation and fragmentation. Behind the appearance of separation is one unified field of wholeness. Here the seer and the scenery are one.”
— Deepak Chopra

“To me there is no difference between one person and another; I behold all as soul-reflections of the one God. I can’t think of anyone as a stranger, for I know that we are all part of the One Spirit.”
— Paramahansa Yogananda

Perfection

“The true perfection of man lies, not in what man has, but in what man is.”
-Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

What man is. Not what man does, says, earns, drives, etc! Each of us, each man, woman and child, IS perfect, simply because we are. How cool is that? When we know the truth, and live it, then we know how cool it is, and how cool we are!

ThoughtCo. : An Introduction to Candle Magic

Candle magic is one of the simplest forms of spell casting. Considered sympathetic magic, it’s a method which doesn’t require a lot of fancy ritual or expensive ceremonial artifacts. In other words, anyone with a candle can cast a spell. After all, remember when you were a child and you made a wish before you blew out the candles on your birthday cake?

Herbal Muse: Peaceful Dreams Insomnia & Anxiety Elixer

The herbs in this formula have been used to induce relaxation and promote sleep for centuries and modern research validates their efficacy. Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), for example, a member of the mint family that grows in the moist woodlands of northeastern North America, contains several flavonoid compounds (i.e., apigenin, baicalin and wogonin) with demonstrated anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects. The calming properties of passionflower and lavender are also well documented. In the latter, the mild sedative effects are produced by aromatic organic compounds called ketones. The sedative, anti-anxiety effects of passionflower are due to various alkaloids, most notably a group known as harmala alkaloids. Learn now to make this….

Inner Journey:

THERE’S LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

“Each difficult moment has the potential to open my eyes and open my heart.”
— Myla Kabat-Zinn

“Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn.”
— Barbara Rose

“No matter what difficulty you are facing, it is coming from Divine Light to bring you to a higher place within. Write down every conceivable reason that this situation can contribute towards your growth. Write down every way this experience can possibly set the stage for serving to uplift others. When you are complete, and have come to the other side of this experience, you will then know ‘why’ it happened.”
— Barbara Rose

“The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in one’s life.”
— Dalai Lama

Shortly after returning to work following the birth of my eldest son, I awoke to the sound of rain.

Returning to work meant leaving my three-month-old son in the campus day care center—a painfully ambivalent experience to begin with

Inner Journey:

BELIEVE YOU ARE A CREATOR

“Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.”
— Shakti Gawain

We hold the power to create whatever we desire. Our ability to manifest the changes we desire depends on the depth and passion of our beliefs and on the focus of our attention.

With this understanding, we, as individuals and as society, can design a whole new future for ourselves. Our challenge is to break free of society’s world view, to truly empower our imaginations to create brand new realities. It brings a whole new meaning to ‘vision.’

What do you passionately desire for your own life? For the planet?

“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”
— Nikos Kazantzakis

Moments

“Let me tell thee, time is a very precious gift of God, so precious that it’s only given to us moment by moment.”

-Amelia Barr

Have you ever watched a television game show? In most of the games, there is an element of time involved. You’re up against the clock. You have 2 minutes to race through a grocery story, or 30 seconds to come up with the right answer. If you happen to be the person playing that game, you realize just how precious each one of those moments are! You focus your attention, and use the time wisely to win the game. Well, we’re lucky that life is not a game show! We have all the time we need to learn and grow and accomplish what we need to in this life. And we can start anytime, so why not start now? The prizes are all around us, just waiting to be won.
