Daily Good: To Be a Loved Horse: Dufresne’s Story

Empathy is a special way of coming to know another and ourself, a kind of attuning and understanding. When empathy is extended, it satisfies our needs and wish for intimacy, it rescues us from our feelings of aloneness.

Carl Rogers –

To Be a Loved Horse: Dufresne’s Story

“A friend of mine was looking to buy a horse that could be a backyard buddy. She didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so I suggested we go to the local monthly horse auction to see if we might rescue one of the horses from a potential death sentence.For those of you who are unfamiliar with horse auctions, many times the meat buyers end up taking the unwanted animals at low prices. There are always horses there who have plenty of life left and just need someone to show up and recognize their value, see their heart, and offer them a space where they can just be a loved horse.” What happened next is an unexpected and electrifying story of hope and healing. { read more }

Be The Change

Try to attune to another and extend empathy where it is most needed this week

Patheos-Pagan: Working With Magic in December

I will admit I am a total festive season fanatic, in fact if I am honest our Yule celebrations usually start around 1st November (don’t judge). This time is not about shopping and material things, but it is about the existing positive energy of the season. Spending time with family and friends. Wishing compliments of the season to strangers and bringing festive cheer wherever you go.

Inner Journey: CREATE SPACE

“All this talk and turmoil and noise and movement and desire is outside of the veil; within the veil is silence and calm and rest.”
— Bayazid al-Bistami

We need to create space if we desire to change and grow. Only in emptiness can meaning, intuitive guidance and truth arise.

Give yourself space by spending time in nature, taking an hour or day off, enjoying quiet moments for reflection. Take time to smell the roses. Breathe in the wonder of life and its bounty. Open so your deeper awareness and imagination can percolate through mundane thoughts and activities. Let go of both resistance and force to allow yourself to connect more deeply to life.

“I do only want to advise you to keep growing quietly and seriously throughout your whole development; you cannot disturb it more rudely than by looking outward and expecting from outside replies to questions that only your inmost feeling in your most hushed hour can perhaps answer.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke

“I am glad that so much movement happens in this stillness.”
— Richard Land

Haven’t I always said, knock and it will be opened? Prepare and the way shall be revealed? Speak and all the elements will obey? Act and I will, too? Laugh and be healed? Give and the floodgates will open? Wink and you’ll be winked at? Dream and thy Kingdom will come?

Oh… Well, that’s what I meant to say.

Wink,

Personality
“The well-developed, well-integrated personality is the highest product of evolution, the fullest realization we know of in the universe.”

-Julian Huxley (1887-1975)


All of our life is spent learning who we are, becoming more of who we really are. When we can truly relax, and be comfortable with the knowledge of our self, our radiant personality shows through. We know how we fit in the scheme of things. We recognize our connection to the universe. We appreciate the roles we have to play and understand that we are the ones writing our script.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Tower

If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.

Joy Happens: Cat’s Angel Message for December 1, 2019

Joy Happens: Cat’s Angel Message for December 1, 2019

December’s Theme: It’s time to be proactive about replacing the old with the new. This is more easily done by allowing yourself to use your natural abilities and creativity and by surrounding yourself with love and laughter.


Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are. – Marianne Williamson


121: Welcome to December, are you ready to create some good things?  The ultimate goal is to embrace the new blessings that will help create the life we want while nurturing our inner peace and adventurous spirit. Do your best to stay focused on what you want to accomplish and not on your fears. Don’t hesitate so release worries and concerns to your angels to help keep your energy flowing. The work we do this month will set the tone for the new year. Allow intuition to be your guide and grab the blessings that come your way to help set things in motion.


Archangel Raguel helps us to find our power and brings clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts.  He also aids in the letting go process which is essential to moving forward. Raguel reminds us that sometimes people can get “freaky” when they see you moving off in a new direction and helps to smooth the way by resolving conflicts and disharmony with those around us as we work with our creative magic.

The Ascended Master Saint Germain helps us to persevere in our personal quests and provides us with courage and direction. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things and shows us the way to comfortably interact with people who can help us achieve our goals.

The Welsh Goddess Cerridwen uses her cauldron “Amen” to help provide us with knowledge, wisdom, personal rebirth and inspiration. remember that change brings us the transformation that we need. She reminds us “The opportunity for your own transformation lies before you. It provides you the chance to spread your wings and grow. Look into my sacred cauldron and see the vision of your path unfolding before you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

Green Calcite also helps to create harmony which allows us to dissolve rigid beliefs and outdated programming. It promotes mental balance, aids in communication and gently helps us to let go of the things that no longer serve us which helps us to draw the good things into our lives that encourage growth.

Heliodor (Golden Beryl). This warm, sunny stone helps us to find clarity and illumination as it eliminates the confusion of purpose.

Howlite helps us to formulate and achieve our ambitions and goals and helps us to communicate these things calmly and reasonably and helps us to find our patience. Howlite also creates a link to the universal realms and prepares the mind to receive guidance.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

MBG: Weekly Horoscope: The Last New Moon Of 2018 Is Coming & It’s An Important One

On Wednesday, the Sun will square Neptune, and it could cloud our judgment.
Caution: Low visibility ahead. As the week begins, you may feel like you’re driving through fog. For one thing, on Wednesday, December 5, the Sun will be shining its bright beams into Neptune’s haze as the two form their biannual square (90-degree angle). The smoke machine effect of this combo can cloud your best judgment, making it hard to see situations for what they really are.

Herbal Muse: Sweet Orange Essential Oil May Help to Reduce Pain

The next time you’re in pain, reach for sweet orange essential oil – not for your sore spot, but for your nose.

Sweet orange oil is obtained from the fruit of an evergreen tree native to China and cultivated in warm climates throughout the world. Like the fruit’s juice and pulpy flesh, the essential oil extracted from the rind has a bright, sweet aroma that most people find very pleasing. The heady fragrance of orange oil is due to the presence of monoterpenes, most notably limonene, also referred to as d-limonene.

Daily Good: Sailing the Winds of Grace

A book fell out of a bookcase, fell all the way down the stairs — not just any book, but a book that held a letter Mother Teresa had written to Rosalie Giffoniello six years earlier. Rosalie had a question: “Can I volunteer at one of your orphanages? Are there special needs children I could help?” Mother Teresa had written back, but Rosalie wasn’t quite ready. She stuck the letter in a book. Six years later she was in bed wondering, “What should I do this summer?” That’s when she heard a book fall down the stairs. It was the one that held Mother Teresa’s letter: “Come to India.” Giffoniello’s life changed at that moment.

Elephant Journal: Protecting your Personal Boundaries the Buddhist Way.

Recently, a reader sent a thoughtful question:
“What is the difference between wisely stepping out of one’s comfort zone into more openness to life and consciousness vs. a lack of healthy and loving personal boundaries.”
Given the current state of the world, this is a timely question.

Yes, it can be hard to see that edge. Often it’s more difficult to maintain healthy, peaceful, and strong personal boundaries than it is to be vulnerable enough to connect with others.
There’s an old yogi story that will help us dive deeper into this topic.

MNN: Why does snow make the world so quiet?

Hush. It’s snowing outside.
At least, doesn’t it feel like that when snowflakes make their grand entrance, pirouetting from the sky like tiny, twirling ballerinas?

And we’re pressed up against windows, eyes wide open. Or outside, all giddy smiles with tongues eagerly outstretched.
Snowflakes look good. They even taste good. But they sound like … nothing.
So what gives? Does a good snowfall really take the whole world’s breath away?

Plus – around now – Venus is at its maximum brightness for this morning apparition, with its greatest illuminated extent falling around December 2.

Patheos-Pagan: On Developing Skill in Magic

Every skill is used to transform the world. From carpentry to medicine to law, skill is the way we take knowledge and apply it into the world to create change. In this respect, the skills of magic are no different.

People who do not study magic tend to either place it on a pedestal or cast it in a ditch. They hold that either magic can accomplish anything or nothing.
Even when we first start to learn magic, we tend to fall into one of these camps. Magic either needs to prove nothing to us, or everything.

Inner Journey:

FOLLOW YOUR OWN PATH

“Life is complex. Each one of us must make his own path through life. There are no self-help manuals, no formulas, no easy answers. The right road for one is the wrong road for another … The journey of life is not paved in blacktop; it is not brightly lit, and it has no road signs. It is a rocky path through the wilderness.”
— M. Scott Peck

We each have our own pathways to develop both personally and spiritually. They are based on our character and past experiences. No one else can identify our paths for us. Tune in to your inner guidance system and follow its direction.

“What every man needs, regardless of his job or the kind of work he is doing, is a vision of what his place is and may be. He needs an objective and a purpose. He needs a feeling and a belief that he has some worthwhile thing to do. What this is no one can tell him. It must be his own creation.”
— Joseph M. Dodge

Most of us have experienced some level of resentment at one point or another in our lives. Many of us may feel resentment often, maybe even constantly.
