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
A Note from the Universe
If you didn’t do what you wish you had done, or if you did do what you wish you hadn’t, may I suggest that back then you were simply acting on instinct, and that it served you well?
Particularly knowing, as I know, how else things could have gone and how well you’ve done for yourself.
Oh yeah we are so proud.
Today’s Recipe: Make-Ahead Blueberry-Cinnamon Muffins
This recipe allows you to make the muffin batter the night before, then bake it the next morning–perfect for fresh, on-the-go muffins! Make sure not to overmix the batter as that will create dense muffins that won’t rise well. The batter will last in the fridge up to 5 days which means you can make a few muffins at a time over the course of a few days, if you desire.

“You may have heard people repeat what I have said, ‘Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.’ Yes, sir, it’s mostly hard work.”
-Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931)
Often we associate genius with intelligence. But according to Edison, it is much more than that. There are a lot of really smart people in this world – but how many of them really channel that intelligence into something bigger than themselves? How many can say that they have worked so hard that their efforts have created something that benefits all of mankind? These are the true geniuses.

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
Even if it’s a busy day at work or with loved ones, it may still be an introspective kind of day when you need to frequently take a quiet moment to reflect. Be organized and perform your tasks well, but also find those quiet instances when you can make sense of your feelings and impressions. You can get a great deal done today, and feel inwardly satisfied about it.
