Spiritual Unite: Chakra Colour Meaning And Its Significance

By looking at these unique to each person aura colours and how they appear around the body, we can find out a lot about the chakras and the metaphysical health of the individual.

Elephant Journal: 22 Reminders of How to Be a More Grateful Person.

I attempt to teach (by example in my daily life, and through my writing) kids and grown ups how to be more mindful. I am a school teacher (bilingual 3rd grade) and a yoga teacher.
Mindfulness practice—through whatever methods (yoga, meditation, walking, running, gardening, writing, eating, community service, and the like)—results in greater gratitude.

MNN: How to protect the world’s largest living thing
Pando, the world’s largest-known organism, is dying. But there might still be time to save this wonder of nature.

Walking through this aspen grove in Utah, you could be forgiven for missing the forest for the trees. That’s because this isn’t really a grove of 40,000 individual aspen trees, but rather 40,000 clones of one organism — a single root system spread across 43 hectares in Utah. It’s the most massive living thing known to science.

EarthSky News: All you need to know: 2018’s Hunter’s Moon

In skylore, every full moon has many names, and most are tied to months of the year. But some moon names are tied to seasons, such as the Harvest and Hunter’s Moons. The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. The Hunter’s Moon is the full moon after the Harvest Moon

Patheos-Pagan: Honoring Hekate, Queen Of Ghosts And The Restless Dead, At Samhain 

Aside from Persephone, Hekate is an excellent goddess to honor during Samhain. As a goddess of the crossroads, liminal spaces, ghosts and the dead–especially and particularly the restless dead–and of course of witchcraft, she comes to mind naturally around this time of year.

Inner Journey: 

MY WILL OR DIVINE WILL?

“It is important not to ‘need’ what you are calling to you but rather to have a certain detachment about it. Let it be all right if it doesn’t come, or if it comes in a different form than what you expect. After you haveasked for something, surrender to whatever comes as being appropriate.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

“Acceptance says, True, this is my situation at the moment. I’ll look unblinkingly at the reality of it. But I’ll also open my hands to accept willingly whatever a loving Father sends me.”
— Catherine Marshall

“This business of hozho. The way I understand it … I’ll use an example. Terrible drought, crops dead, sheep dying. Spring dried out. No water. The Hopi, or the Christian, maybe the Moslem, they pray for rain. The Navajohas the proper ceremony done to restore himself to harmony with the drought. You see what I mean. The system is designed to recognize what’s beyond human power to change, and then to change the human’s attitude to be content with the inevitable.”
— in ‘Sacred Clowns’ by Tony Hillerman

Life

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

-Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)

We need to ask ourselves: Are we living the life that we want to live? If not, then make some changes! Life is too short, life is too precious, to miss out on. Every moment is holy. It is there for us to embrace. How many moments go by without notice? Are we spending our time analyzing the past, which is done and gone – or planning for the future, which is changing every instant? Or are we living, truly LIVING in this moment, NOW, where our life is taking place? It is not enough to exist, choose to live!

Daily Good: Ten True Things About Gratefulness

Gratefulness is a deceptively simple practice that has the potential to change your life and those around you. “The benefits of gratitude range from deeper sleep and better health to higher self-esteem and enhanced stress resilience. Gratitude has also been shown to enhance our relationships. And, if that’s not enough, gratitude makes us happier.” And happiness spreads. Here, an ode to the practice in the form of ten truths, from Gratefulness.org.

MNN: 13 odd facts about Edgar Allan Poe 

Upon the mysterious death of America’s master of mystery and the macabre, the literary rival of Edgar Allan Poe wrote a scathing obituary and biography of the author. However, much of what was written by Poe’s foe, Rufus Griswold, was untrue. Vengeful over things Poe had written about Griswold, the latter’s postmortem portrait of Poe painted him as a womanizing madman, drug-addled and bereft of both morals and friends.

Patheos-Pagan: Calling out to the Dead

I call out to the dead and the dead call out to me.
There was a time when I was walking down the hall and I smelled her perfume. And I didn’t know what to do. So I stood there, patiently. As though she might round the corner to say hello. I closed my eyes and waited. The smell lingered. The scent was unmistakable.

Inner Journey: 

STAR CONNECTIONS

“The interchangeability of matter and spirit means the starlit magic of the outermost life of our universe becomes the soul-light magic of the innermost life of our self. The energy of the stars becomes us. We become the energy of the stars. Stardust and spirit unite and we begin: One with the universe. Whole and holy.”
— Dennis J. Kucinich

Ponder the spectre of yourself as one human being in the over six billion people on Earth. See Earth as one tiny planet in a galaxy of billions of stars, and that galaxy as just one of billions of galaxies in our expanding universe. We are so minute as to be nonexistent. And yet, we have the power to visualize, to imagine the entirety of the cosmos.

In your journal, write about the paradox of being both microscopic and immense.

“I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if our spirituality were to come from looking not just into infinity but very closely at the world around us — and appreciating its depth and divinity.”
— Thomas Moore

“I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”

Life

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was duty.
I acted and behold, duty was joy.”

-Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)

There’s no doubt that life can be hard. And yet life is poetic. What we learn in our time here is beautiful. All that we really take with us is the wisdom we garner. Life is full of joy. We were blessed, against all odds, to be here, in this time and place, in this particular circumstance. It is our duty to live this life and to get all that we can from the experience.

MBG: The 5-Minute Breathing Exercise That’ll Keep You Grounded

It’s easy to get lost in the smaller cycles of existence—the alarm clock that sounds each morning, the daily grind, the commute to and from work. But when we let these habitual actions define our lives, we lose sight of everything that falls in between. Nature’s cycle through the seasons, on the other hand, does not lend itself to monotony. The earth tilts and turns toward the sun in a glorious rotation that manifests as warmer and cooler temperatures, brighter and duller colors, crisp air and cool rain..

Inner Journey: 

SING YOUR OWN SONG

“Since you are like no other being ever created since the beginning of time, you are incomparable.”
— Brenda Ueland

Great forces are directing you to conform to the patterns of your society. You have DNA that has been handed down from generation to generation, coding repeated behaviour patterns into your being. You have archetypal energies setting the standards for how you behave as a man or a woman, as husband or wife, as father or mother …. You are immersed in consensual reality, whereby the world around you reflects societal understanding of how life has been and is to be.

At the same time, you have an even greater force within you inspiring you to wake up and recognize the reality of who you are. This force, the creative power underlying the entire universe, is urging you to create brand new standards of reality.

The status quo is blind to our creative power. Create a brand new world for yourself, one that meets your deepest needs, and you will help raise the quality of consciousness of the entire world.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
— Gandhi

Life

“Life is what happens to you
While you’re busy
Making other plans.”

-John Lennon (1940-1980)

We go about our lives trying really hard to keep everything in order, all the plates spinning: jobs, family, friends, community responsibilities, etc. But every once in awhile something happens that is beyond our reach, out of our control. Maybe someone we love gets sick, or we have a bad financial setback. Now our attention is elsewhere, and it seems that everything else gets out of balance, too. The truth is that we can’t control everything, and that we probably wouldn’t be any good at it if we could! But we can control our responses to these unexpected situations. We can use our problems as opportunities to learn and to grow. These are the times when we find that reserve of strength that was there all along. We discover more of who we really are, and what we’re really capable of.

Daily Good: Raise Your Children to Be Happy, Healthy, Complete

Parents today … want the very best for our kids. We want them to be smart, athletic, healthy, kind, happy, polite, disciplined, creative and more. We want to give them everything! Kids on the other hand, are growing up bombarded by technology, needing to compete in every way, comparing themselves with others, trying to be perfect and please their parents, wanting to fit in. As a result, they are often anxious, stressed at a very young age, display behavioural issues, have little self esteem and are simply not happy. So, from the parents whose intention is so sincere, to the kids who are trying to keep up on all fronts, what needs to change? What is missing?

As darkness falls, you might also see the star Fomalhaut a big hop to the southeast (lower left) of the moon and Mars. Although Fomalhaut ranks as 1st-magnitude star, this star pales in comparison to Mars, which is presently some 6 times brighter than Fomalhaut.

Inner Journey: 

THE PARADOX OF LIFE’S JOURNEY

“It is only when we realize that life is taking us nowhere that it begins to have meaning.”
— P.D. Ouspensky

“All major mystical traditions have recognized that there is a paradox at the heart of the journey of return to Origin. …Put simply, this is that we are already what we seek, and that what we are looking for on the Path with such an intensity of striving and passion and discipline is already within and around us at all moments. The journey and all its different ordeals are all emanations of the One Spirit that is manifesting everything in all dimensions; every rung of the ladder we climb toward final awareness is made of the divine stuff of awareness itself; Divine Consciousness is at once creating and manifesting all things and acting in and as all things in various states of self-disguise throughout all the different levels and dimensions of the universe.”
— Andrew Harvey

“Look at you, you madman, Screaming you are thirsty And are dying in a desert when all around you there is nothing but water!”
— Kabir

“After changes upon changes, we are more or less the same.”
— Paul Simon

Life

“Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.” -Samuel Butler (1835-1902)

Can’t you just picture that? It’s so true! Here we are, living our lives, not really knowing what we’re doing until actually doing it. We’re finding our way, step by step, day by day. We will stumble, hit some sour notes, learn a few lessons, and write our own songs. An audience may reject our music, or embrace it, but we keep on playing because the instrument is there for us. And someday, with enough practice, we will be a master life-liver, a virtuoso!

Often when I sit down at my desk to prepare for a big interview, write an outline for a speaking engagement, or work on a new article, whispers of self-doubt swirl through my mind.

Before I even begin, the fear can start to get to me. “You know nothing,” a little voice says. “Who are you to deserve this opportunity? No one wants to hear what you have to say.” I know I’m not the only one. How many of you have heard those exact words echo through your mind—

Daily Good: How Green Is My Forest

“We are the people of this land. We are nature, human and non-human. These are our bodies. Together we are one body, we are creation, and always will be. We matter. Humus, seed, fruit, tooth, organ, blood and bone. We are root, water, mud, alga and stone. We are the snap of bladderwort. We are buttress-rooted trees. Orchid, fern, dragonfly, elephant, monkey; we are larva, worm, cocoon; creeper, liana and honeybee. We are this forest. Trogon, drongo and hornbill; cobra-lily, ginger and cinnamon; mushroom and pill millipede. We appear from the cloud, we are mist, we are monsoon rain. We are strikes of lightning charging the soil. We are moonshine through the canopy. We are women. Men. Hermaphrodite. Other. Children.” In this lyrical piece, Suprabha Seshan, a conservationist who lives and works in a forest-garden in the Western ghats in India, muses about the forest and the many sensory gifts she has to offer. Read on for a richly-meditative account of life in one of the most bio-diverse zones of the planet.

Elephant Journal: Protecting Yourself from Unwanted Spirit Attachments.

It was a cold winter night—I was exhausted from a long day of clients, feeling super off and absolutely done.
I climbed into bed and cuddled up to my husband, wanting nothing more than just to be embraced.

MNN: Bees go silent during a total solar eclipse

A new study reveals how bees reacted to the 2017 Great American Eclipse, with help from citizen scientists and elementary schoolers.

As the moon blocked the sun across a swath of North America last year, millions of people got to see a total solar eclipse for the first time in their lives. So did countless nonhuman animals — albeit without the benefit of knowing what was happening.

EarthSky News: Orange Arcturus sparkles after sunset

Tonight, look for Arcturus, one of three stars noticeable for flashing in colors at this time of year. You should be able to see it in the west at dusk or nightfall. Once it gets good and dark, and you live at mid-to-far latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, you can verify that this star is Arcturus by using the Big Dipper asterism.

Patheos-Pagan:  Do you look for the beauty?

Earlier this week I was walking through the woods near my house with my husband and daughter. There isn’t much left of the woods really because development after WWII cut down the trees and re-purposed the farms. Where there was once nature, there is now housing.

Inner Journey: 

CREATE CONSCIOUSLY

“No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes.”
— Napoleon Hill

The law of karma is the law of cause and effect. It works unavoidably when there is no consciousness — when we are not present in the moment. When there is no consciousness, the past creates the future.

The law of Love supersedes the law of karma. It intervenes in the process by focusing in the present. In fact, one could say that Love is being fully present. When anything is initiated in Love in the present, the future of that reality will be purposeful,meaningful, loving and powerful.

“He who is false to present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and will find the flaw when he may have forgotten its cause.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

“In my beginning is my end.”
— T.S. Eliot

Life

“Trust life, and it will teach you, in joy and sorrow, all you need to know.” -James Baldwin (1924-1987)

You know the punch line when someone asks: “Got any questions?” and someone answers back, “Yeah, what’s the meaning of life?” We laugh because we know that’s not exactly what the first guy was expecting to hear… and also because we know that it is the BIG question we’ve all come here to find out… and because we know that there are no easy answers! It’s the same for all of us. But at some point we figure out that we don’t NEED to know everything. We understand that we can trust the process enough to know that life is here for us and that we will learn all we really need to know along the way.

Orange represents the Sacral chakra or Svadhisthana. This is the second of the seven primary chakras and deals with pleasure and emotionality. It is located about three inches below the navel and can encompass the sexual organs.

Daily Good: The Mystique of Rain

Re-awakening a mystique of rain – or a mystique of Earth – isn’t a simple task for anyone indoctrinated into the dominant worldview of a dead universe. Like meditation or yoga or darts, it is a practice – a practice that weaves together ecology and spirituality, a practice that might satisfy both the ecologist and mystic, the pragmatist and visionary. Ecology suggests that nothing exists in isolation. Interdependence – or networks of relationship – is primary. Many spiritual traditions also suggest the interconnectedness of all things. If our lives interpenetrate not only with human creatures but with the wilder others as well, then how we enact our lives – how we participate, how we engage our relationships with the Earth community – may matter more than we can imagine.

Elephant Journal: The World is not Kind to people with Big Emotions.

My son started responsively smiling when he was two weeks old.

We had no idea how prescient that comment would turn out to be.

Patheos-Pagan: THE DEVIL’S CARD DREAM

I often get up in the morning with the sense of feeling good having had a particular dream. But I often also think about the good dream as one in whose participation I prefer a different role. For instance, I can have an excellent dream about satisfaction at work, reconciliation with past lovers, or one in which I’m not a disciple, but the Zen master herself.

Inner Journey: 

RAISING YOUR SIGHTS

“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
— Albert Einstein

To grow in consciousness, we expand our perspectives on life. So how do we do that? The more we work with the universal — the concept of unity and wholeness, the more everything makes sense. Parts have meaning when they are understood to be parts of a bigger picture.

Consciousness is all about relationships — especially how the lower relates to the higher and how the darkness can exist within the light. Hold and experience contradictions like anger with love. Let opposites coexist in you without choosing one over the other.

“Higher consciousness, enLIGHTenment, comes from meaningful experiences and lessons passed with the understanding that there truly is only one law – the Law of Love. When one leads a life expressing this belief, the mind and heart begin to open to new realities, and other dimensional truths become known.”
— Dr. Norma Milanovich & Dr. Shirley McCune

Prayer

“The purpose of prayer is to reveal the presence of God equally present, all the time, in every condition.”

-Oswald Chambers

We have learned, over and over again, that whatever we pay attention to becomes more important in our lives. When we pray, we are paying attention to our relationship with the Divine. With our attention on Spirit, we see the infinite possibilities, the presence of love and light, everywhere we go – because this wondrous spirit IS everywhere and everything! We feel that presence, and it comforts us, and enlightens us.

MBG: Mushroom extract may help save bees

Over the past decade, beekeepers have experienced dramatic colony losses, with average bee losses of more than 30 percent. Causes range from pollution to habitat loss to viruses transmitted by parasites.

It’s on the last of those causes that research may have found a sliver of hope. Scientists may have discovered a way to combat the viruses, and all it took was some mushrooms and the dreams of a one-time long-haired hippie.

Loss is part of life for all of us, but the tendency in our time is to carry that burden alone.

Today, there are thousands of Dinner Partiers active at over 200 tables in over 90 cities and towns worldwide.

Vulnerability.
Such a scary word.
It’s defined as the state of being exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally.

For me, vulnerability means trusting a person with the rawest places of yourself—and not knowing how they will handle those places. It’s sharing your story without knowing the outcome.

Patheos-Pagan: Magical herbs, plants and foods for protection

I was recently asked about the best herbs to use for protection. My answer to any question along the lines of ‘what herbs are best to use’ is to go with your intuition. Trust it. What works for some might not work so well for others. There are of course some ‘standard’ (for want of a better word) herbs that can be used for the magical purpose of protection but I wholeheartedly believe that it will work better if you choose it based on your own gut instinct.

Inner Journey: 

DAILY FORGIVENESS

“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind.”
— Isabelle Holland

We cannot avoid daily resentment and thoughts of guilt. They are a part of human nature. What we can do is release their grip on us. We can forgive others and ourselves daily.

Forgiveness requires nothing in return. There are no conditions. It gets rid of old baggage and clears up unfinished business. It leads us to a life of authenticity, lightness and directness. Forgiveness is the highest form of letting go of resentment and ego.

True forgiveness is more than an apology, understanding and acceptance. There is an element of recreating and re-imagining. There is a need to envision ourselves as more loving, interdependent, courageous and compassionate. Forgiveness requires honouring the sacred journey of learning about life – our life and others’.

“Whatever we have done, we can always make amends for it without ever looking back in guilt or sorrow.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Prayer

“Time spent on the knees in prayer will do more to remedy heart strain and nerve worry than anything else.”

-George David Stewart

Long before Prozac, there was prayer. Can you see the prescription now? “Pray two prayers, twice a day until symptoms subside. Then continue the treatment over the course of a lifetime to prevent symptoms from recurring.” Prayer is a remedy. We can turn our burdens over to God and feel the weight drop from our shoulders. Why do we feel the need to carry around all that heaviness? Pray. And then pray some more. And then keep praying. And feel the lightness return.
