The earth is waking at the voice of May,
The new grass brightens by the trodden way,
The woods wave welcome to the sweet spring day,
And the sea is growing summer blue.

-Elizabeth Akers Allen (1832-1911)


The Wild Hunt: People make offerings to Tutu Pelé as the lava flows
HAWAII — While a Hawaiian volcano continues to spew forth destruction on one Hawaiian island, many forget that it was this same activity that created all the Hawaiian Islands. Destruction transforms into creation. The Hawaiian goddess, Tutu Pelé (Madame Pele) lives in, or is, the Kilauea Volcano. She has become one of the most well-known […] Read More:


MBG: 4 Steps To Manifesting Abundance When You’re Always Worried About Not Having Enough

Why do we work so hard every day? To live an abundant, happy life in which all our financial needs are met. But when working harder and longer hours isn’t being reflected back to us in our bank balance, we need to look at our mindset about money.



Elephant Journal: How Energy Healing helped me Discover who I am & Create a Life I Love.

Who else has ever felt disconnected from themselves and their lives—like something is wrong, or they’re not quite whole?
It’s common for many of us, especially those who were raised to follow others’ expectations regarding what we should do with our lives.
I used to feel this way.


MNN: Uncovering the mysterious origins of the mima mounds

From the otherworldly rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula to the towering volcanic peak of Mount Rainier, the state of Washington is land of many grand natural wonders. While these larger-than-life destinations are bound to dominate a Pacific Northwest travel itinerary, one other fascinating yet little-known locale is Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve.

Patheos-Pagan: Searing Sun, the Hurricane’s Howl: What Can We Do About Climate Change?

When we think of the Divine in Nature, we think of nature’s beauty – the green earth and the white moon among the stars – but nature can be frightening as well as beautiful. Our ancestors venerated nature because they feared as well as loved it, because they knew they were totally dependent on something more powerful than themselves. In contemporary Pagan rituals, we domesticate the elements.


Inner Journey: 


“Employ the power of positive quitting. Most of us view quitting as something negative, but it’s not. ‘Winners never quit,’ we’re told, when, in reality, winners quit all the time: choosing to stop doing things that aren’t creating the results they desire. When you quit all the things that aren’t working for you, when you quit tolerating all the negative things that hold you back, you’ll create a positive ‘charge’ in your life as well as create the space in your life for more positive experiences.”
— Jim Allen

“I like thinking of possibilities. At any time, an entirely new possibility is liable to come along and spin you off in an entirely new direction. The trick, I’ve learned, is to be awake to the moment.”
— Doug Hall

“Persons and societies do not submit passively to surroundings and events. They make choices as to the places where they live and the activities in which they engage — choices based on what they want to be, to do and to become. Furthermore, persons and societies often change their goals and ways; they can even retrace their steps and start in a new direction if they believe they are on a wrong course. Thus, whereas animal life is prisoner of biological evolution which is essentially irreversible, human life has the wonderful freedom of social evolution which is rapidly reversible and creative. Wherever human beings are concerned, trend is not destiny.”
— Rene Dubos


the highest within.the

Whenever conferring with another – either face to face or across the miles – whether a human being, departed spirit, or sentient tree, always speak to the highest within them.

It makes such a difference.

“I believe in freedom – social, economical, domestic, political, mental and spiritual.” -Elbert Hubbard

Freedom is all-encompassing; you can’t have one “kind” of freedom without all the others. I remember Deepak Chopra talking about the 25 qualities of the Unified Field. Scientists have studied this Field, which could also be called “all of nature,” and identified 25 qualities that it has. Because we are one with this Field, these are qualities inherent in each of us, too. Number 24 on the list: Freedom.

Beliefnet: The 7 Greatest Strengths of an Introvert

What others might call weakness is an introvert’s greatest strength.

If you’re an introvert, it can seem like the world just isn’t built for you. From the very beginning, others have tried to change you, telling you to “come out of your shell” so that you can get the most out of life.

But, as an introvert, you know that some of the greatest pleasures of life come from within. What others take for shyness, you know to be thoughtfulness.

The snow has left the cottage top;
The thatch-moss grows in brighter green;
And eaves in quick succession drop,
Where grinning icicles have been.

John Clare (1793-1864)


Mind Body Green: How Changing Just 1% Of Your Day Can Completely Transform Your Life

Each of us shares at least one thing in common: We all have at our disposal 1,440 minutes in a single day. What we do with that time, however, is what ultimately makes us different.

As a life experiment, what would happen if you took just 1 percent of those 1,440 minutes, just 14 minutes and 24 seconds, roughly 15 minutes a day, and consciously tried to change your life? You can keep the other 99 percent of your day to do what you have to do, eat, sleep, go to work, take care of the kids, attend school, drive your sister to the doctor, surf your smartphone. Just 15 minutes. What would happen?

Beliefnet: 7 Spring Activities That Will Make You Feel Young Again

The four seasons reflect the stages of life each of us goes through. Summer is our prime of life here, we are mature, strong, and successful. Our autumn is a period of decline, a slow fall to earth, much like the leaves of this season. And finally, winter is the end of all things.

Each season of our lives is a distinct period, and when we move on from one to the next, we often leave a piece of ourselves behind.

A Bountiful Moment

Daily Thought

Do not be dragged into the subjective world of others. Maintain your vision and actions to achieve your goals. It is easy to fall prey to what others are thinking or doing but remember the energy you spend on someone else’s agenda is time spent away from what you need to focus on to complete your task(s).

Daily Practice

Stay objective by exploring the emotions that are being triggered by others. Identify them, acknowledge them and then let them go. Do not continue to recycle the emotion by continuing to think about the situation, person, or event. Change your focus by doing something physical even if it is as easy as taking a deep breath and shaking it off.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Unbalanced Mercy And Unbalanced Severity: Boundaries Are Healthy And Ethical

“Remember that unbalanced force is evil; that unbalanced severity is but cruelty and oppression; but that also unbalanced mercy is but weakness which would allow and abet Evil. Act passionately; think rationally; be Thyself.” – Aleister Crowley

“Child of Earth, remember that- unbalanced force is evil, unbalanced mercy is but weakness, unbalanced severity is but oppression.” – Neophyte Initiation of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

Inner Journey: Judgement Creates

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”
— Mother Teresa

We know the power of thoughts to create. Consider, then, the impact of our judgments. When we judge someone critically, those judgments have the power to affect the one being judged, if they are open to our perceptions. This is the case even when we don’t say what we’re thinking.

For example, if I judge someone to be fat, and that individual perceives him or herself to be fat and is sensitive to the opinions of others, my thoughts will reinforce their ‘fat’ experience.

Being aware of the impact of our judgments helps us let go of our tendency to judge.

“There are three kinds of violence: one, through our deeds; two, through our words; and three, through our thoughts. …The root of all violence is in the world of thoughts, and that is why training the mind is so important.”
— Eknath Easwaran


A Note from the Universe

It’s working! Every day you’re getting closer! Everything you’ve ever wanted is being pressed toward you. Everything is clicking. Don’t let the illusions trick you. Don’t let the events of today dampen your spirits. Things couldn’t be any better than they now are. You couldn’t have more reasons to celebrate. Continue! Press on! The hardest work is done! Keep showing up, be present, open every door and let events unfold. Life is your stage. This is your parade.

Together we can do anything.

I love it when you’re hot,

The Universe

“Desires are the pulses of the soul; as physicians judge by the appetite, so may you by desires.” ~Thomas Manton

Our desires tell us a lot about ourselves. Ask yourself today: “What do I want?” Look at that carefully and ask again: “What do I REALLY want?” Then look at that and ask: “Why do I want that?” Oftentimes that question will get you to the true answer of what you REALLY want! And how would you change your life if you had that? What would be different? Can you do that now? Play “what if” a little and see if you can get yourself closer to your goals right now
