MBG: This Feng Shui & Astrology Connection Could Be A Game-Changer For Your Home

You probably already know your astrology sun sign and how it shapes your personality. Next obsession: designing an environment that brings out the best in you and everyone who shares your space.
In feng shui, just like in astrology, the “elements” of nature are an essential part of the practice.

Herbal Muse: Peaceful Dreams Insomnia & Anxiety Elixer

The herbs in this formula have been used to induce relaxation and promote sleep for centuries and modern research validates their efficacy. Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), for example, a member of the mint family that grows in the moist woodlands of northeastern North America, contains several flavonoid compounds (i.e., apigenin, baicalin and wogonin) with demonstrated anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects. The calming properties of passionflower and lavender are also well documented. In the latter, the mild sedative effects are produced by aromatic organic compounds called ketones. The sedative, anti-anxiety effects of passionflower are due to various alkaloids, most notably a group known as harmala alkaloids. Learn now to make this….

Elephant Journal: Getting through Life as Highly Sensitive People without Putting Out our Flame.

I am both a highly sensitive person (HSP) and a hardcore empath.
It took me about 26 years of blindly exploring the deepest pits of life to unfold the reality of who I’ve always been, with all the tragedy and great triumphs that came with having this personality. I am almost 30 now.

Tetraktys: Witchcraft Troubleshooting: 5 Reasons Why Your Spell Failed

If, like me, you work according to the moon phases, you will easily know if a spell failed. If you set your intentions at the New Moon and release your expectations at the Full Moon, all your spellwork should run smoothly. However, if, when you reach the next New Moon, things have not improved, then something must have gone wrong.

THERE’S LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

“Each difficult moment has the potential to open my eyes and open my heart.”
— Myla Kabat-Zinn

“Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn.”
— Barbara Rose

“No matter what difficulty you are facing, it is coming from Divine Light to bring you to a higher place within. Write down every conceivable reason that this situation can contribute towards your growth. Write down every way this experience can possibly set the stage for serving to uplift others. When you are complete, and have come to the other side of this experience, you will then know ‘why’ it happened.”
— Barbara Rose

“The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in one’s life.”
— Dalai Lama

Spirituality & Healing: CBD Oil for Insomnia
If you toss at night, glowering at the clock in frustration, you’re not alone. About 60 percent of Americans have insomnia a few nights per week, if not more often. This can be caused by stress, illness, medicines or other factors, and is more likely to affect females and those aged 65 and older. While there are many ways to treat insomnia, some people are turning to CBD oil for relief. You may have wondered if it’s worth a try, so let’s take a look at CBD for insomnia

Daily Good: Consider Your Wake

Many of us like to consider the impact we make as a “footprint” we leave behind. But what if instead of a footprint, we imagined our actions leaving a wake? In this article, Andy Smallman explores how the metaphor of a boat in the water can be applied to our daily decisions and interpersonal exchanges. Just as a boat creates waves that affect the vessels around it, so too do our words and actions influence the unfolding of our days and the relationships with those whom we encounter. “Among the things I like about the wake image is that a wake is strongest when it’s new and close, and it comes in contact with lots of things as time passes,” Smallman writes. “In this way it is significant both right away AND in the future, the form of significance just being different.”

I have a confession to make before we dive in…

EarthSky News: Longest days accompany December solstice

When we say the longest days of the year come each year around the December solstice, we’re talking about the day not as a period of daylight, but as the interval from one solar noon or midday to the next. In December, a day – one rotation of Earth relative to the noonday sun – is about one-half minute longer than the average 24 hours.

Patheos-Pagan: What You Can’t See Can Hurt You

The Calvinist idea that success is a sign of divine favor is dead wrong. It’s bad theology and it doesn’t hold up to even a casual examination of how the world actually works. I’m pretty sure most Pagans agree with me here.

Inner Journey:

THE FACE IN THE MIRROR

“Our inability to see beauty doesn’t suggest in the slightest that beauty is not there. Rather, it suggests that we are not looking carefully enough or with broad enough perspective to see the beauty.”
— Rabbi Harold Kushner

Who are you? You can gaze at your reflection in a mirror but you’re not likely to see your true likeness. You are beautiful, unique, perfect. Do you see that?

The world needs you to see how whole and complete you are — now. Can you begin to own your divinity? The world needs you to know who you really are so you can be the mirror for others.

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
— John Muir

Today’s Recipe: Instant Pot Cranberry Orange Marmalade

I was craving my mum’s homemade orange marmalade the other morning but had ran out of it. She uses lots of orange zest in hers, which I love, so I thought I’d try to remake it with a bit of a twist in my Instant Pot… because I wanted it in an instant! I added fresh cranberries to it since we have so many around for the holidays. What a tangy delight! I’ll be making plenty of jars to give out for the holidays.

KarmaTube: Smuggling Hope

What would you think if you heard of two people smuggling 500 pieces of children’s artwork into the Guggenheim, one of the most famous art museums in the world? Would it sound ridiculous? Beautiful? Funny? Like a waste of time? Well, in this fun video, you’ll get to see this happen thanks to Brad and Kristi Montague of the Montague Workshop, a project dedicated to doing things for kids—including smuggling artwork. And though Brad and Kristi succeed, their endeavor bears a surprise message about hope, one that startlingly reminds us that things don’t necessarily have to be the way we think they are.

Falling into a routine doesn’t necessarily sound like the most exciting thing to happen to your life.

Patheos-Pagan: Which Pagan Path Should I Follow? | John Beckett

I wrote a book called The Path of Paganism. The irony is that once you get past the beginner stage, you realize there are many Pagan paths, not just one. Like a lot of people, I started out with Wicca – that didn’t work for me. Eventually I found Druidry, and through Druidry I found the ancestral, devotional, ecstatic, oracular, magical, public, Pagan polytheism I practice today.

Inner Journey: 

CELEBRATE DIFFERENCES

“Souls don’t have races or sexes or religions. They are beyond artificial divisions.”
— Brian Weiss

Intolerance of differences always exists in people who don’t know who they are, people who don’t have a strong sense of their own authentic self, the soul within.

Intolerance is rooted in fear.

The basis for having a strong sense of self-esteem is to replace our unconscious idea of basic unworthiness with a conscious knowing of our fundamental inherent goodness. As Matthew Fox argues in Original Blessing, the notion of ‘original sin’ must be replacedwith the truth of ‘original blessing.’

Being in touch with our essential goodness, we can see the essential goodness in others as well.

“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.”
— Paul Ferrini

Patience

“Steady, patient, persevering thinking, will generally surmount every obstacle in the search after truth.”

-Nathaniel Emmons (1745-1840)

Aren’t we all together in this search for Truth? Our quest for spiritual growth is impressive! And that’s what will get us there – the way that we surmount those obstacles and continue on. We know that we must be patient with our journey, and patient with ourselves. We know that there is no “instant” answer, but that answers unfold before us with wisdom and grace. We know that our patience is rewarded continually as we grow and experience more of who we really are.

Beliefnet: 5 Tips to Find Your Confidence

Confidence is an assurance that we can make it. It is the uncanny ability to crush the inner fear and draw power when you are on empty. The definition of “confidence is a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.” Oftentimes when we do have the determination to move forward and step out in faith, we do fail. Experiencing the ebbs and flows of life is part of the human experience. To be honest, finding confidence is not easy.

A Bountiful Moment: Know your expectations.

Daily Thought: Expectations set the bar for your actions. If you believe and expect that nothing will happen then your efforts will follow. Set your expectations to achieve what you believe to be true about yourself. Always strive to the highest mark and accept with grace and gratitude the accomplishments reached along the way. Make sure your personal expectations are high enough to keep you striving and realistic enough to make your proud

Daily Practice: What are your self-expectations? Are they high enough that you can divide into steps to reach? Take some time today to evaluate what your beliefs about yourself are and what you believe you are capable of achieving. Set a goal that you never thought yourself capable of and break it into little self- expectations to reach it.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Inner Journey: Conscious Communication

“If we want to be compassionate we must be conscious of the words we use. We must both speak and listen from the heart.”
— Marshall B. Rosenberg

Conscious communication requires us to be truly present to what is occurring. When we are unconscious, we both speak to and react to others out of habit. And in the face of what we perceive as someone’s judgment and criticism, we automatically (and unconsciously) defend, withdraw or attack.

To communicate consciously requires attention to two areas:
1.I need to speak from awareness of what I am perceiving, feeling and needing, and
2.Through watching and listening, I need to be aware of those same needs in others.

“When we focus on clarifying what is being observed, felt, and needed rather than on diagnosing and judging, we discover the depth of our own compassion.”
— Marshall B. Rosenberg

Today’s Recipe: Easy, Healthy Bread (With Hormone-Balancing Ingredients!)

When my sister-in-law had a baby, I made her this bread to have on hand during her marathon nursing sessions and froze it in slices that were easy to reheat. This bread is so good for women’s hormonal health, from the flaxseed meal (which has been shown in studies to help with PCOS and hormone balance) to the goji berries (which have been shown to regulate hormone levels). There’s no kneading or complex fermentation process here, but it comes out like a real loaf of bread. It also has a subtle sweetness and tons of plant-based protein and healthy fat to keep your blood sugar stable throughout the day.

Work

“All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work. Work is not a curse; it is the prerogative of intelligence… the measure of civilization.” ~-Calvin Coolidge

It’s great to plan, to pay attention, to have intention, to dream, wish, and visualize. Yet there comes a time when we must take action! Work is how things get done. Because we live on this human plane, work is how we learn and grow. Whether it is by studying or through our experiences, our activities take us to new places mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
