In the sweet, glad days of spring,
With the song of the brook,
the breeze and the birds,
You can hear the flowers sing.
-Helen Isabel Moorhouse (b.1876

1. If you live in an area prone to earthquakes and are used to them, this dream indicates minor difficulties that need to be resolved.
2. If you live in a place where earthquakes are rare, this dream implies a sudden and totally unexpected change in your circumstances – which could require some difficult adjustments at first, but will, in the long run, end in success and good fortune.


Daily Good: Contact with the Sacred

With spectacular visual images, this film reminds us of the necessity of connecting with the sacred in everyday life.

Pagan Playlist: Sacred Spirit – Prayer for the Four Directions


Inner Journey:


“We don’t always know what makes us happy. We know, instead, what we think SHOULD. We are baffled and confused when our attempts at happiness fail…We are mute when it comes to naming accurately our own preferences, delights, gifts, talents. The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations. The tongue of the original self is the language of the heart.”
— Julia Cameron

We are each unique beings with a unique path in life. If we wish to be fulfilled, we need to go to our own hearts for direction. We might regularly ask ourselves:
• “What do I really want to do?”
• “What brings me greatest happiness?”
• “How can I bring more of these into my life?”

Life wants us to go for what brings us most joy and meaning.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. …I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.”
— Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Let me listen to me and not to them.”
— Gertrude Stein

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

A Note from the Universe

By surrendering the “cursed hows,”  (as in how your dreams will come true), to life’s magic, you not only free yourself up to imagine your dreams without fear, but you free me up to bring about those dreams much faster (as in double-pronto, zippy).

You lucky salt.

Daily Wisdom
May 27, 2020

“When nature has work to be done, she creates a genius to do it.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

We are so intricately connected with nature. And nature has so much organizing power and so much intelligence that we can tap into! We can harness that energy, we can flow with it and create anything we can imagine. We can work together with nature, for the good of nature, and all of us.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Justice

A past wrong against you might be set right today. It’s important that you give others a fair chance and don’t automatically discount what they have to say or offer. You don’t need to satisfy everyone but you do need to make the effort to let them have their say and their moment to contribute. Be confident and don’t feel threatened by anything.
