Inner Journey: BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

“…for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic.”
— Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews

“Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world then calls the state we were in a delusion or infatuation … But we merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magic when the morning came. …In truth, we can go to the moon and retain its magic for a lifetime.”
— Marianne Williamson

“We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests … What a pleasure to be wrong. Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure … not only are they here-and-now, they’re all that ever lived on earth! Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we’ve never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish. Intuition whispers true: We’re not dust, we’re magic!”
— Richard Bach

A Note from the Universe

Of course you probably could have done something else entirely with your life; something easier or more common, and have been even more successful than you are today.

But then, you wouldn’t become as successful as you are about to be.

Remember, you wanted it all?

Today’s Recipe: Clementine and Chocolate Chip Cake

I made the proto-type for this clementine cake by digging through the kitchen to see what we had. My seven-year-old son adored it. This is the second iteration and I found it’s a winner. The whole fruit and whole flour provide a decent amount of nutrition for a dessert. The texture came out surprising smooth. Enjoy.

Birth
“Birth may be a matter of a moment. But it is a unique one.”

-Frederick Leboyer


Birth is a beginning. It is the single event that starts us on our journey in this lifetime. Our grand entrance into the world! And here we are. Somehow all the right pieces were in place to make this miracle, and we were born to live this life. Life is precious.

Daily Tarot: The World

Take your place in the World and be in your element all day long. Your practical mind and easy nature let you cruise through the regular maze that is daily life. If anything out of the ordinary arises, you’ll know instinctively how to approach it and resolve things to your satisfaction. Today may not be easy or effortless but it will be rich in success and approval – from yourself and probably others as well.

ThoughtCo: Croning Ceremony to Celebrate Women’s Wisdom

For a long time, to be called a crone was an insult. The very word implied a wrinkled, hunchbacked old woman, unwanted and unloved. Women who had reached an advanced age were dismissed as useless hags, and there was nothing to celebrate about it at all. Fortunately, times are changing, and more and more women are welcoming this aspect of their life.

Daily Good: The Friendship Bench

Globally, more than 300 million people suffer from depression, according to the World Health Organization. Depression is the world’s leading cause of disability and it contributes to 800,000 suicides per year, the majority of which occur in developing countries. Yet those suffering from depression have few options due to a dearth of mental health professionals. In brainstorming how to tackle this problem, Dixon Chibanda, director of the African Mental Health Research Initiative, arrived at an unlikely solution. Since 2006, Chibanda and his team have trained over 400 grandmothers in evidence-based talk therapy, which they deliver for free in more than 70 communities in Zimbabwe. The method has been empirically vetted and has been expanded to countries beyond, including the US. { read more } http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20181015-how-one-bench-and-a-team-of-grandmothers-can-beat-depression

Be The Change

Think of a nagging problem you face in your life or community where you lack access to the needed solution. Literally “throw up you hands” and give up trying to get what’s not available. Now look around you. What can you do with what you have?

Elephant Journal: Want a Metaphysical Reset for the End of the Year? Do a September Home Detox.

I’ve always felt that September has an energy about it that is similar to January.
We’re moving into the closing months of the year, and the signs around us in nature are all about endings (to make way for new beginnings). Maybe it’s a resistance to what is—such a human quality—

MNN: What to see in the night sky in September

After a summer that featured Tesla’s spaceman completing a full orbit around the sun, a muted Perseid meteor shower in August, and the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, it’s been an eventful time in the galaxy we call home. What could September possibly offer for an encore? Plenty, it turns out.

Patheos-Pagan: Druid in the City: Offerings Without Spending

It is a tradition in ADF to make offerings. We give these offerings in a practice of hospitality. There is a re-constructed Indo-European phrase, *ghosti, that talks about the duties between guest and host. In this relationship, we give gifts to the gods and spirits so that they may provide us with gifts in return.

Inner Journey:

DID YOU FIND JOY?

“The future, higher evolution will belong to those who live in joy, who share joy, and who spread joy.”
— Torkom Saraydarian

Joy, as the energy of love, is the highest vibration on this planet. Everything in the universe is energy; it can be measured and reduced to vibrational frequencies. It’s a universal law that as we think and feel we vibrate, and as we vibrate we attract.When we are in the high joy vibration, we attract what is for our greater good.

The Ancient Egyptians saw Joy as a sacred responsibility. They believed that upon their death, the God Osiris would ask them two questions: “Did you bring Joy?” and “Did you find Joy?” Those who answered ‘yes’ could continue their journey into the afterlife.

For at least the next week or two, ask yourself these two questions each and every day:
•Did I bring joy?
•Did I find joy?

“Man loves because he is Love. He seeks Joy, for he is Joy. He thirsts for God for he is composed of God and he cannot exist without Him.”
— Sathya Sai Baba

Teachers

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”

-Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

We can all look back and remember some of our most favorite teachers over the years. And chances are, what made them so memorable to us is not the subjects that they taught, as much as the way they taught. I still remember Dr. Herriot in 10th grade math. She knew I was slacking off and she challenged me to do better. I was so surprised that someone actually called me on it, and decided to give it a shot. Dr. Herriot handed the next test back to me with a big smile on her face – I got an A. It felt great for me to see that grade, and that smile! She helped me to understand that when I put my mind and my efforts into something, I can achieve. That’s a good teacher.

Daily Tarot: The Moon

You may be dwelling on your weakness or discomfort, and those things may be real enough, but take heart and know that these things are also temporary and are not going to last much longer. You underestimate or overlook your great powers of recovery and self-healing. You have too much love of life to be kept down for long. Give yourself a break and relax a bit.
