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 loss�a 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

Daily Thought

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.

Daily Practice

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 can�t 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. It�s 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.

Love

“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!

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.

A Bountiful Moment:

Receive the gifts of the universe just for being you. Unknown

Daily Thought

There is no restriction, division or prejudice between who gets the many gifts this world has to offer. By waking up you receive all things needed every day. You have the opportunity to develop everything that passes your way or ignore it and wait for the next opportunity to pass. Thinking that you are not as lucky or don�t have the same privilege puts restrictions on what you can receive and achieve. Yes we are all different individuals but to the world there is no difference and the gifts it offers as support are the same.

Daily Practice

Look around today and be aware of all the beauty and opportunity the universe has to offer. Be amazed at the miracle of life, be awed at nature�s gifts, and become inspired by the sunshine, rain or stars. Practice receiving the greatest gifts with gratitude and grace and you will recognize more freely the gifts of opportunity as they become present in your life.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

He reminded me that I often correlate witchery with personal sovereignty and free-will, so how is it consistent that I have no choice in the matter?

GROWING OURSELVES

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

We are all on a life-long journey. It is a search for who we are and why we are here. It is a journey that expands our consciousness.

There is an urge within each of us to move forward in life. It is an urge to become more whole, to find more meaning, and eventually to help others. It is human nature to strive for a sense of well-being.

We all go through the same growth cycles, though our experiences may appear entirely different. By understanding the process of personal and spiritual growth, we can work more effectively with the process, instead of fighting and resisting it.

“We can learn to be the catalysts for our own change.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

Love

“Love is the central flame of the universe, nay, the very fire itself.” -Ernest Holmes

This week, our focus is on “love.” What else is there, really? A Course in Miracles says that there are only two things in this life – love and fear… and when it all comes down to it, there is really just love. For just a little word, LOVE is a huge concept. Love is our greatest motivator, our deepest inspiration. No wonder love is so often associated with fire, and desire, and burning passion. It warms us, heals us, frees us.

The site, located a mere 900 feet (275 meters) off the coast of Manasota Key in Florida is preserved in what would have been a “a peat-bottomed freshwater pond thousands of years ago,” according to a statement released by the Florida Department of State.

A Bountiful Moment:

Born into greatness conditioned into mediocrity ~Unknown

Daily Thought

Every one of us is great. There are no exceptions to this rule. Expectations, criticisms, or judgements of others change who you think you are. Believing that you are not good enough, or that you cannot do things is a sign that past judgements are embedded in your memory. Change then becomes based in a self-deficit instead of the truth. You are already great and you have everything you need to accomplish what you want.

Daily Practice

Work from a position of power today. Embrace the knowledge that you are already as great as you need to be and that your decision to achieve a goal is a choice not a need. Work from a place of choosing the next step in your journey not responding to what others are or have dictated to you.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Inner Journey

DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF?

“At the heart of personality is the need to feel a sense of being lovable without having to qualify for that acceptance.”
— Dr. Paul Tournier

How do you see yourself as unlovable?

Take a few minutes to write down why you perceive yourself to be unlovable. Look at the list and see if you can identify where those characterizations originated. Can you pinpoint old messages from parents, teachers, and friends that led you to negative conclusions about yourself? Are those messages valid today?

The beliefs we adopt as children usually don’t hold when we view them objectively as adults. Can you let them go? Can you begin to see yourself as a unique expression of life, a genuine gift to the world?

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
— Buddha

“Limitless like the ocean are your excellent qualities.”
— Dalai Lama

A Bountiful Moment:

No matter how great the effort. Some things just take time. Warren Buffet

Daily Thought

Patience is a learned virtue. It is difficult to wait for things to happen if you are working hard to achieve your goals. So understanding the wait is a part of the journey can provide you the opportunity to continue to grow without losing hope and momentum.

Daily Practice

Are you an impatient person? Do you lose your desire to achieve if results don�t happen immediately? If so begin to practice using your down time to find new angles to support your desired goal. Can you do more research? Can you re-evaluate what you are doing to make the journey better, easier? Down time is not the time to give up it is the opportunity to step back and look at what you are doing. It is the opportunity to add new goals and move forward from the plateau you have now reached.

Create a life filled with memories that amaze yourself. You have the ability to create days filled with awesome wonder of “How did I do that?”. It�s just a matter of dreaming bigger than you are right now and knowing that you can do anything you set your mind to.

Dream big today. Don�t let the thoughts of �if only� get in the way of what you think you are capable of achieving. Set your sights on the big picture to keep you moving in the direction that creates memories showing you the reality of how great you are.

REMOVE THE FILTERS

“You got to look at things with the eye in your heart, not with the eye in your head.”
— Lame Deer, Medicine Man of the Oglala people

Whenever we’re thinking, our experience is being filtered through our minds. For example, when I say to myself, “What a beautiful sunset!” I am not fully experiencing the sunset because I am involved with the words in my mind.

Explore letting go of the thoughts, the words, and connecting directly with your experiences. Tune in to the silence and the sensations in your body. Be aware of the spaciousness this brings because this is truly living in the present moment.

Being present doesn’t mean that we have to abandon thinking entirely. That’s not feasible, of course. But we can experiment with what it’s like to stop thinking once in a while!

“Only in quiet waters things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world.”
— Hans Margolius

Tell me what advice would you give a child who came to you asking what their favorite color should be?

To follow their heart? That no color is right or wrong? That if they wanted to, they could always change their mind later, any number of times? That their happiness with their choice is all that matters? Not to give it too much importance? That they don’t have to decide at all? That you approve no matter what they choose?

Now, what if they protested because they had heard from friends that there was a special color assigned to them at birth; their soul-color. They felt that a numerology reading might shed some light on their confusion. They wanted confirmation of their choices through a zodiac chart, tea leaves, and a Ouija board. And they asked if hiring a coach, therapist, or guru would be a good idea.

Yep, this is what I hear every day, just not so much for colors…

Sorry to lay this on you. I’m just fishing around for some new answers to the bazillion questions I get each week about careers, loves, and destinies – which to me, from here, are kind of like… crayons.

Ewhhhh, nice magenta!

Intelligence

“I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.” -Woodrow Wilson

We don’t need to know everything. Isn’t that great? What a burden it would be to carry around all that information constantly. And yet everything we could ever need, or want, to know is available to us at any time. All we have to do is ask! We are here to help each other, we are our own greatest resource.
