Patheos-Pagan: The Corner Crone: Personal Agency, Healthy Boundaries & Saying “No”
We watched and listened carefully as The Seeker–garbed head to toe in black and hunched forward, her arms protectively crossed over her body, her legs crossed and drawn slightly up, her soft, childlike voice hesitant–struggled to articulate the energetic experiences that seemed to have been bombarding and sapping her.
THE EYES OF THE SOUL
Today, we want to share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:
“My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well- being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.”
Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.
“As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the noticer.”
— Wayne Dyer
A Note from the Universe
“Grasshopper,” you may not always know what your invisible, limiting beliefs are. But you will always know the kinds of empowering beliefs you’d like to possess. And so, one decision at a time, one day at a time, you can choose to behave accordingly. And verily, worlds will be born, you shall be transformed, and the cows will come home.

“The workman is known by his work.”
-La Fontaine (1621-1695)
This applies in every area of our lives. The artist is known by his (or her) art. Whether the art is music or baking, whether the work is teaching or construction or stock trading – our work is a representation, an expression of ourselves. It’s one way that the world recognizes us. It is one way that we contribute to the world. So we must always strive to work to the best of our ability, to do the best that we can do. In doing so we honor ourselves and our abilities.
Daily Tarot: The Devil
Your instincts may be heightened and a bit off today, and this could lead you to make some wrong decisions or assumptions. Then, you run the risk of pouncing on these assumptions and acting out of a bad impulse. Keep your emotions under control and back away from impulsive actions of any kind. Today they are traps that lead to embarrassment at best, and harm at worst.
