Spirit Library: Pay Close Attention (a message from Kate Spreckley)

Eclipses tend to bring about events and opportunities that enable us to let go of aspects of ourselves and our past that we have outgrown. As such we are able to anchor in the gifts and wisdom we have gained without needing to repeat the past. It is important that we take notice of what is emerging for us, the messages, the insights and the clarity as events occurring now are accelerating our transformation.

Inner Journey: WHERE’S YOUR ATTENTION?

“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.”
— Greg Anderson

What do you usually focus on: problems or solutions?

When our mind dwells on a problem, we stay stuck. Woe is me! But when we can shift to ask how we might achieve a solution to our problem, our subconscious mind, thinking and creativity move into gear. New possibilities open up.

Get in the habit of asking for solutions!

“Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?”
— Eric Allenbaugh

Today’s Recipe: Tortellini Salad with Tomatoes and Peas

This is one of my standard pasta salads for potlucks or parties. It’s vegetarian and so good! Don’t skimp with the dressing because the tortellini soak up a lot of dressing. I estimated the dressing amounts, so you just need to taste for yourself.

Trust
“The soul and spirit that animates and keeps up society is mutual trust.”

-Robert South (1634-1716)


As human beings we really do rely on each other. There are many situations where we have no choice but to trust each other. When we drive on the freeway, for example, we trust that each driver will adhere to the traffic laws and do his or her best to avoid an accident. We trust that when we wait for a bus, that the bus will show up approximately when the schedule says it will do so. Parents trust schools to educate their children, and schools trust parents to get the kids to school on time. Customers trust businesses to provide the products they need, and business trust their customers to keep coming back when they give good service. Love makes the world go ‘round, but trust definitely makes society go ’round!

Daily Tarot: Justice

Take everything and everyone a little bit more seriously today, without getting grim about it. People may bring you requests or problems that they think are shaking up their world, and you should offer at least a token respect for their worries and needs. None of this puts any pressure on you, unless you get emotionally involved. Remember, you have neither the power nor responsibility to fix it all.

Elephant Journal: Seven Simple Tips to Clear Out Bad Energy.

When I was moving into my new house a few years ago, I was working closely with a spiritual teacher at the time.
We used to talk frequently about energy and how to keep it at a high frequency.

As an empath, I feel other people’s energy deeply. So keeping my own energy vibrating highly is incredibly important to me.

MNN: Hidden camera reveals true identity of ‘ghost’ in U.K. man’s tool shed

EarthSky News: Westward shift of Orion and all the stars

We always get this question at this time of year:
Orion seems to have moved and turned considerably in the last two weeks. Will Orion disappear before summer?
The answer is yes, it’ll soon disappear into the sun’s glare. And – although you might notice it more easily with this particularly bright and noticeable constellation – the fact is that, like Orion, all the stars and constellations shift westward as the seasons pass.

Patheos-Pagan: Messages from Spirits of the Land

A few weeks ago I noticed something sparkling from the back yard. When I went to investigate I discovered a blue marble sitting in the very center of my back patio. I assumed it was a message from the Fae, but I’m also a healthy skeptic, so I waited. The next day, I found a hazelnut shell in the exact same place. The next day a whole peanut. The next day half of a walnut shell. These were clearly all messages from the Spirits of the Land

Inner Journey:

REFLECTIONS ON EFFORT

The anxious student asked the Zen master how long to enlightenment. The Zen Master answered a long time, at least 10 years. The student said, “Well I will work twice as hard.” The Zen master said, “Then it will take 20 years.” “No!” said the committed student, “I will work three times as hard.” “Well then,” said the Zen master, “it will take 30 years.”

Do you need to work at being spiritual? No. You already are spiritual. Do you need to work at being human? No. That’s just who you are.

The spiritual path doesn’t require us to get anything. It’s a process of opening to new dimensions of who we already are. It’s a process of awakening to our own truth. It’s a process of allowing ourselves to be authentic.

“It is not by your actions that you will be saved, but by your being.”
— Meister Eckhart

“People ask what must they become to be loving. The answer is ‘nothing.’ It is a process of letting go of what you thought you had become and allowing your true nature to float to the surface naturally.”
— Stephen Levine

Compassion

“The dew of compassion is a tear.”

-George Gordon Noel Byron (1788-1824)

Compassion carries with it emotion. We feel it in our hearts. Compassion spurs us to action. It shows us the best of who we are, it allows us to move past our own issues and focus on the contribution we can make to our fellow human beings.

-Lissa Coffey
