We like March, his shoes are purple
He is new and high;
Makes he mud for dog and peddler,
Makes he forest dry.

4 Nature-Based Spiritual Rituals (Because Spring Is Just Around The Corner)
Grief isn’t something you can think your way through. It is instead an experience you must feel your way through. As a psychic intuitive, I regularly help clients who are grieving a lossï¿½a marriage that is ending, a career that’s no longer fulfilling, the death of a loved one, or the loss of a specific dream they had for their life.
Beliefnet: Entering the Deep End of the Ocean
Experience the peaceful rhythms of the sea with a new moon meditation.
Each New Moon signals the time to reset our inner clocks to nature’s timetable. This is especially true at the annual Cancer New Moon, when we can align our rhythms with the waxing and waning cycles of the Moon. Cancer is a water sign; it is the Moon that measures out the ebb and flow of the ocean’s tides. As old as the moon is the ocean – watery womb and source of life. The inner knowledge of nature’s rhythms is the key to life: to move instinctively in concert with the rise and fall, the emptiness and fullness,
Did You Know?
Before Spring was called Spring, it was called Lent in Old English. Starting in the 14th century, that time of year was called springing time, a reference to plants springing from the ground. In the 15th century this got shortened to spring-time, and then further shortened in the 16th century to just spring.
A Bountiful Moment:
You have never experienced tomorrow before. Rober Schuller Sr
Tomorrow presents as an exciting adventure. You can think about what might happen but it will always be unknown. You have the power to dream and create every piece of what your tomorrow will look like. Do this and set intention for your tomorrow in your world today.
Intend to be a success tomorrow. Think about all the glorious wonderful things that will come from that success. Today see yourself at the finish line of the goals you have set.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Embrace the Power of Offerings
If you asked my students what the single greatest game-changer for improving their Magic that they got from my teachings, most of them would say offerings. A lot of you reading this might already be well acquainted with offerings to spirits; some of you are surely initiated into Vodou, Candomble, or another African traditional religion where offerings play a huge role
Inner Journey: Slow down
“The soul requires duration of time — rich, thick, deep, velvety time — and it thrives on rhythm. Soul canï¿½t be hurried or harried …. We may go through many events in the day and experience nothing because the soul has not had the opportunity to feel them from many different points of view.”
— Robert Sardello
Soul cannot exist when our connections in life remain superficial. An experience of soul requires that we take time to be fully present to the details of our lives.
Explore what happens when you take the time to STOP and PAY ATTENTION. When we choose to slow down and really experience the qualities of our lives, we get a whole new perspective on what living is all about.
“We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery.”
— H. G. Wells
“The well of Providence is deep. Itï¿½s the buckets we bring to it that are small.”
— Mary Webb

Today’s Recipe: Japanese Style Beef and Onions
This is a family recipe which was derived from a Northern Japanese post World War II era recipe. It is said that American troops ate a lot of beef at their bases in Northern Japan. The Japanese up there were poor after the war, but they could afford to buy leftover bits and pieces of beef from the Americans. They grew a massive amount of onions up there, and that is how this recipe came to be.

“We may think of the Divine as a fire whose outgoing warmth pervades the Universe.”-Plotinus
Many people say God IS love. And love certainly pervades the Universe. Love is something we all understand, something we can all relate to. Every mother knows what it means to love a child. Every person is capable of giving and receiving love. In A Course in Miracles, fear is defined as the absence of love. Much like darkness is the absence of light. Let’s light that fire, and light up the world with our outpouring of love!

Ready to Try Crystal-Infused Water?
BY KATHRYN DRURY WAGNER
Sorry, cucumbers and mint. When it comes to additives for the water pitcher, the latest thing is crystals. And no, I do not mean Crystal Light, the low-cal powdered beverage mix. I mean crystals like minerals in a repeating crystalline molecular pattern. They are a popular energy healing tool, and now they are plunking their way into our water bottles. I took a look at this modish mystical hydration.
