Inner Journey: IT’S OKAY TO DREAM!

“Don’t discard your fantasies as merely wishful thinking. Honor them as messages from the deepest part of your being about what you can do and directions you can choose.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

What are your deepest heart-felt desires, dreams and visions?

Our deepest desires and dreams align with the essence of who we are. The more we align with that essence, the more our life holds meaning, purpose and fulfilment. Do you have a sense of your destiny?

“Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.”
— Dale E. Turner

“Everybody builds a dream in their lifetime. You’re either going to build your dream, or somebody else’s. So build your own!”

A Note from the Universe

I so love mornings. All of earth’s energies are zipping, zapping and crackling in alignment. The stars have been tucked in bed. The nightingales begin dreaming their dreams. And the sugar plum fairies try hard not to be seen.

But best of all I love mornings because it’s when the “Giants” return to earth — stretching, yawning, squinting and rolling — remembering without quite remembering, sometimes for just the flickering of a second, that all is right in the world and that their greatness has never needed to be proven.

Like you, “Big Foot” –

The Universe
“Had I been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better ordering of the universe.”

-Alfonso X, King of Castile and Leon, attributed


We have to laugh at ourselves sometimes. We think we know better. This is the premise behind the movie “Bruce Almighty.” God needs some time off so he gets Jim Carrey to take his place for awhile. And, of course, hilarity ensues! At some point we need to stop trying to control the universe and understand that there is perfect order in all things. Always has been. Always will be

Daily Tarot: The Empress

Be ambitious today, in a subtle way, and meet with a lot of cooperation and good will. Your ambition does not have to be grandiose. Concentrate on small projects and sweep away a lot of loose ends and complete things that have been long lingering. Act and speak with authority, and be fully respected. Do as much as you can today, and don’t look back

Herbal Muse: Lavender & Oat Bath Bombs

These little jewels are fun to use and lend wonderful fragrance to the bath. The combination of baking soda, powdered lavender flowers and powdered oatstraw lend healing properties to sooth the skin and frazzled nerves. You can use candy or small soap molds for this project, but for best results use the two-piece type of mold made specifically for this purpose (available from Amazon, craft supply stores, etc.) This recipe makes 6-8 bath bombs, depending on the size of your molds

Giving

A man there was, though some did count him mad,
The more he cast away, the more he had.”

-John Bunyan (1628-1688)

So many people have said the same thing: when you give, you receive. Whatever it is that you want in your life, give that. Somehow, it comes back to you, in a bigger and better way. Somehow, what you are looking for finds you. You have to put it out there; it has to circulate. Rather than hold on to something, set it free. Let it live, let it breathe, let it grow. Giving is good for everyone.

-Lissa Coffey

Beliefnet:  5 Ways to Tell If You Have Spring Fever
Warmed by a sun that has just crossed the equator, March becomes April and winter becomes spring… and people come down with Spring Fever.

It’s not really a fever, of course. The symptoms are vague, but persistent. People feel more energetic and often feel a certain element of lust—some of it for life in general. Exuberant sufferers want to plant gardens, move to the country, start new projects and may daydream of an al fresco dinner or even about calling in sick to work. But most of all, spring gets us thinking about love. Spring is hormone-racing season.

 Patheos-Pagan:   7 Suggestions For A Shinto-Pagan Spring Equinox

 I am exceedingly fortunate. My place of work, which is a Japanese organisation, gives us selected Japanese holidays as paid holidays in addition to the UK ones. And one of these holidays is Shunbun no Hi, or the Spring Equinox. I think I am one of the few Pagans in the UK who gets Ostara off without having to request it!

This is thanks to the fact that the Spring Equinox is an important day in Shinto and Buddhism, the two main religions in Japan which are more or less merged with each other. It�s part of a seven-day period called Higan, which is a time for remembering the dead. You can read more about what the Spring Equinox means for the Japanese here.

Inner Journey: Dream!

“The most pathetic person in the world is the person who has sight, but no vision.”
— Helen Keller

What’s the big picture for your life? Always have a larger, purposeful, even spiritually ideal picture of where you are going. Your mind needs to have a clear and challenging vision to draw you ever upwards.

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and follow where they lead.”

 Kindness

“Kindness is wisdom; there is none in life but needs it, and may learn.” -Bailey

It is truly amazing that as we learn and grow and attain more wisdom, that we understand more and more the real value of the most simple things in life. Kindness is precious. It is healing and life-affirming and contagious! And kindness is readily available at all times. If there were a prescription for happiness, kindness would be one of the ingredients. It all starts here – show kindness and see what happens!
