Confidence

“If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t you’re right.”

-Mary Kay Ash (1985)

How many times do we sabotage ourselves from a lack of self-confidence? We are such powerful, creative people – and yet we doubt our own abilities! If we feel stuck, like we’re not getting anywhere – we have to look carefully to see what is holding us back. And most of the times, the answer is ourselves. When we have confidence, we can soar!

-Lissa Coffey

Patheos-Pagan: Awaken: The Earth Needs Her Wise Ones

Last Summer, I heard several elders of the Pagan community give voice to a shared message. The refrain is echoing and gaining strength. Ancient deities are calling. The Earth Mother is reclaiming those who once worked within her sphere as priestesses and priests. The Wise Ones are awakening. Now, we must be about our business once more.

Inner Journey:

FEELING SAFE

“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are — chaff and grain together — certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away….”
— Dinah Craik

We cherish our best friends and our special communities because we feel safe to be vulnerable when we’re in their embrace. And yet I have discovered that as long as I identify with my self-image, with my ego, there’s no safety possible anywhere. When the ego is on watch, even a dear friend’s truth may trigger reactions like anxiety, self-criticism and fear.

The only true safety exists in living the truth of our soul, our essence.

“Open your body and your mind to the subtler levels of experience, letting go of your attempt to control, to be right, not worrying about appearances, not trying to be safe.”
— Stephen Levine

A Note from the Universe 

BIG, life-changing ideas rarely first appear as BIG, life-changing ideas.

No, hardly, that would be too easy.

BIG, life-changing ideas usually show up as plain, little ideas that when given a bit of muscle, gradually evolve into things like Space stations, best sellers, or a new beautiful vacation home for everyone in the family. Which means they can often sneak right under the radar and go completely undetected.

Got any little ideas? I ask because I know you do….

Ou-u-u-u-u-u-h!

Just be sure to have plates or napkins available since the mixture can sometimes drip a little. To serve, allow each person to spoon a portion of the meat into a lettuce leaf. Wrap the lettuce around the meat like a burrito and enjoy!”

Confidence

“Nothing so bolsters our self-confidence and reconciles us with ourselves as the continuous ability to create; to see things grow and develop under our hand, day in, day out.”

-Eric Hoffer (1902-1983)

We are creating our lives every day. When we see the fruits of our labor, we feel good about ourselves and our abilities. By attending to our spiritual practices every day, we are growing spiritually. We can be confident that we are on the path, and headed in the right direction.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Empress

Everything you touch or talk about today is going to get bigger, so be careful with your words and actions. While today will be easygoing and agreeable, a few days from now something you set in motion today may come back in a bigger form. Watch out for exaggeration, even about good things. Go light on the flattery, and even sincere compliments, since it all may become grander than you intend.
