Daily Good:Books are the Original Internet

Maria Popova is a Bulgarian-born writer, blogger, literary and cultural critic living in Brooklyn, New York. She writes Brain Pickings, a blog she calls “my one-woman labor of love.” In this interview by Oscar Schwartz, she says “Books are the original internet.” Schwarts calls her “switched on, irresistibly articulate, fully engaged…She talks about complex ideas in a way that transforms them into something I want to talk about with my friends. She makes big concepts relevant.”

Patheos-Pagan: Being a Positive Pagan in a Dark World

Inner Journey:

IT’S OKAY TO DREAM!

“Don’t discard your fantasies as merely wishful thinking. Honor them as messages from the deepest part of your being about what you can do and directions you can choose.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

What are your deepest heart-felt desires, dreams and visions?

Our deepest desires and dreams align with the essence of who we are. The more we align with that essence, the more our life holds meaning, purpose and fulfilment. Do you have a sense of your destiny?

“Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.”
— Dale E. Turner

“Everybody builds a dream in their lifetime. You’re either going to build your dream, or somebody else’s. So build your own!”
— Christopher LaBrec

Herbal Muse: Lavender & Oat Bath Bombs

These little jewels are fun to use and lend wonderful fragrance to the bath. The combination of baking soda, powdered lavender flowers and powdered oatstraw lend healing properties to sooth the skin and frazzled nerves. You can use candy or small soap molds for this project, but for best results use the two-piece type of mold made specifically for this purpose (available from Amazon, craft supply stores, etc.) This recipe makes 6-8 bath bombs, depending on the size of your molds

Giving

A man there was, though some did count him mad,
The more he cast away, the more he had.”

-John Bunyan (1628-1688)

So many people have said the same thing: when you give, you receive. Whatever it is that you want in your life, give that. Somehow, it comes back to you, in a bigger and better way. Somehow, what you are looking for finds you. You have to put it out there; it has to circulate. Rather than hold on to something, set it free. Let it live, let it breathe, let it grow. Giving is good for everyone.

-Lissa Coffey

Inner Journey:

DIRECT YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND

“The power to move the world is in the subconscious mind.”
— William James

Our subconscious mind creates our lives perfectly according to how it has been programmed. It works 24 hours of every day, 365 days per year. It accepts instructions from the conscious mind, checks on old inner programming and executes.

The subconscious mind acts on old beliefs stored over a lifetime. Many of those beliefs you may have accepted without thinking. Or you may have absorbed them when you were too young to exercise choice. Many of the beliefs that govern your life may no longer match what you now hold to be true.

Nonetheless, the subconscious mind is the director till you rewrite the scripts. Put some effort into getting it working on your positive, conscious intentions instead of your old limiting, unconscious beliefs and your life will change.

“If a man devotes himself to the instructions of his own unconscious, it can bestow this gift [of renewal], so that suddenly life, which has been stale and dull, turns into a rich unending inner adventure, full of creative possibilities.”
— Marie-Louise von Franz

Spirituality

“Nothing in all nature is so lovely and so vigorous, so perfectly at home in its environment, as a fish in the sea. Its surroundings give to it a beauty, quality, and power which is not its own. We take it out, and at once a poor, limp dull thing, fit for nothing, is gasping away its life. So the soul, sunk in God, living the life of prayer, is supported, filled, transformed in beauty, by a vitality and a power which are not its own.”

-Evelyn Underhill, The Golden Sequence (1932)
We are spiritual beings, and in this human existence, where we encounter conflict and stress, we often feel like a fish out of water. We must immerse ourselves in our spirituality, and let it be our home. We find solace in our spiritual practices, whatever they are for each one of us. And then we can bring that good energy into all aspects of our lives, so that feeling of spirit is always with us.

-Lissa Coffey

CoffeyTalk: Numerology of Number 7

Today we continue with our series on numerology with the number 7.

For those born on day 7, 16, or 25, your ruling entity is Ketu. Ketu is one of the nodes of the moon, the other being Rahu. Ketu is commonly known as the dragon’s tail. Ketu bestows spiritual tendencies, and also non-attachment to worldly desires. People under the influence of Ketu have an aversion toward material success, and they are uninterested in life’s dramas. They prefer instead to pursue enlightenment and they can be powerful healers and wise teachers. 7 people are talkative, imaginative, spiritual and intuitive. They also have a restless nature, their minds are constantly busy.

7’s are good speakers and often end up in fields where they use those talents. They are popular because they are equally friendly and supportive – they don’t see any difference between rich and poor or any status in life. They love change, and mystery and travel. They tend to do well in foreign countries because this is where they can learn new things, and also make money in business. 7’s tend to be unconventional; they have their own way of thinking. They give good advice, and they bring good luck to those close to them.

7’s work best independently. They should be careful not to get carried away with their fantasies, or to overextend themselves.

January and February are weak periods for 7’s – and June and July are favorable months. Sunday, Monday and Wednesday are good days, especially when they fall on 7 days, or 1 days. Best colors are light green, light blue and white. Black should be avoided. The cat’s eye gem is a good stone for 7’s, especially the white and green varieties.

Number 7 has been known to be a lucky number, and it’s also a spiritual number. When you see multiple 7’s it is a reminder to look at the spiritual part of yourself. Many times when you see 7’s it’s a signal that an opportunity is in front of you. Take a look around and see what this opportunity might be, and see if you are bold enough to embrace it!

Katy Perry was born on a 7 day, and so was I!

We cross many thresholds of partings in life; sometimes as the one leaving and sometimes as the one staying behind.

Then open your heart and experience this soulful many-layered story of how to approach partings with grace and gratitude.

Elephant Journal: The Hidden Side of the High Vibe Tribe & 3 Ways to Avoid It

The high vibe tribes are on the rise right now.
In spiritual circles and social media groups, there’s talk of “raising your vibe,” short for vibration, which is the invisible energy that comes from a person, place, or thing.
In these circles, keeping your vibe high is considered a sure ticket to a better life. It’ll supposedly have you moving toward an ascended way of being, where you rise above the struggle and the pain of the world, headed to the land of good karma.

Inner Journey:

HOPE AND DISAPPOINTMENT

“It’s precisely the disappointing stories, which have no proper ending and therefore no proper meaning, that sound true to life.”
— Max Frisch

“Don’t get your hopes up!”

Were you warned of this as a child? What does this say? It says that life is bound to disappoint you. It says, don’t aim high because you’re not likely to get what you want. It says that we can’t expect good things to happen to us.

As our thinking creates our reality, this kind of thinking dooms us to a mundane existence. It’s time to change our stories. Why not focus the immense power of our hearts and minds on bringing to fruition the very best life has to offer? Allow yourself tohope and believe in all possibilities.

“Hope is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles.”
— Samuel Smiles

“The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.”
— Barbara Kingsolver

Change

“Things do not change; we change.” -Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

When we change our perspective, things look differently to us. We may think that they have changed, but it is really our point of view that has changed. We tend to put our own labels and definitions on things, yet those change when we see things a different way. The value that we put on things changes, too. And isn’t it all just this subjective, arbitrary notion? Different people will have different opinions, that’s just the way it is… and yet, the “thing,” whatever it is, is what it is. Opening up our minds to other people’s perspectives allows us to change and grow and become more accepting and understanding.

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

Dreams

“When you dream, you dialogue with aspects of yourself that normally are not with you in the daytime and you discover that you know a great deal more than you thought you did.” -Toni Cade Bambara, in Sturdy Black Bridges (1979)

Dreams are a place where we can figure things out about ourselves. They help us to see what motivates us, what our true desires are, and where we are headed. They help us to become more of who we really are!
