Beliefnet: Chakra Clearing to Connect With the Angels

If you are serious about connecting with the angels, then it’s important for you to learn how to clear your chakras. When these psychic energy centers are dirty and aren’t functioning correctly, your ability to receive messages from the angels is diminished.

Spirit Library: With Your LightBody, You have to Choose where to “put” Your Energy…

It’s nothing like “before”….

You all know me, I change words to a multi-dimensional (vibrational) understanding, instead of a linear one. This article I break down a bit more of “how” your LightBody (SoulBody/Photonic Light integrated into your form) works….. There’s so many “pieces and parts”… and every “piece” is a bit different based upon the current vibration/energy and circumstances…. which changes in every nano-second too.

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Pace yourself today and get more done than you might imagine as the day begins. It’s all right to be tired from time to time. It doesn’t have to cripple all your plans for the day. Maintain a sensible balance, remember to eat healthy, take a short break once and a while, and don’t aim too high. There’s plenty of work to be done that you can handle with ease.

Elephant Journal: 3 Quick Meditations for Quieting our Mental Pests.

I had some work to do.
As a young divorcee, I wanted to rediscover my own strength and build a foundation before I partnered up with someone new.

I needed to calm down the hyperactive hamsters running around in my brain so that I could hear the quiet voice in my heart that held the answers that I needed to rediscover myself

MNN: The earliest sunrise of the year isn’t on the summer solstice

The summer solstice, which falls on June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere, offers more total sunlight than any other day of the year. It would seem to make sense, then, for the summer solstice to also feature the year’s earliest sunrise and latest sunset.

EarthSky News: Moon and Spica on June 11 and 12

On June 11 and 12, 2019, use the waxing gibbous moon to find Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the Maiden. In fact, Spica is Virgo’s one and only 1st-magnitude star. Although the bright moon will wipe out a number of fainter stars from the canopy of night tonight, bright Spica should withstand the moonlit glare. If you have trouble seeing Spica, place your finger over the moon and look for a bright star near

Today’s Deity: Mawu

Mawu (alternately: Mahu) is a creator goddess, associated with the sun and moon in Dahomey mythology. In some myths, she is the wife of the male god Lisa. Mahu and Lisa are the children of Nana Buluku, and are the parents of Xevioso.

After creating the earth and all life and everything else on it, she became concerned that it might be too heavy, so she asked the primeval serpent, Aido Hwedo, to curl up beneath the earth and thrust it up in the sky

Patheos-Pagan: Connecting with the Faeries

Warmer weather returns and surely you are starting to see some suspect ‘fairy’ activity going on. You may start to notice things missing. Only to find them in a place that you swear you have looked a thousand times before. If they are happy, your garden will flourish.

Inner Journey:

MY WILL OR DIVINE WILL?

“It is important not to ‘need’ what you are calling to you but rather to have a certain detachment about it. Let it be all right if it doesn’t come, or if it comes in a different form than what you expect. After you have asked for something, surrender to whatever comes as being appropriate.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

“Acceptance says, True, this is my situation at the moment. I’ll look unblinkingly at the reality of it. But I’ll also open my hands to accept willingly whatever a loving Father sends me.”
— Catherine Marshall

“This business of hozho. The way I understand it … I’ll use an example. Terrible drought, crops dead, sheep dying. Spring dried out. No water. The Hopi, or the Christian, maybe the Moslem, they pray for rain. The Navajo has the proper ceremony done to restore himself to harmony with the drought. You see what I mean. The system is designed to recognize what’s beyond human power to change, and then to change the human’s attitude to be content with the inevitable.”
— in ‘Sacred Clowns’ by Tony Hillerman

Words

“You can stroke people with words.”

-F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940)

What would we do without language? This is how we communicate. Words by themselves are so innocuous, but when we put them together, combine them together in such a way, they can be bitterly poisonous, or powerfully healing. Words can carry with them so much meaning. Through words we can express tenderness, and compassion.

May’s Full Flower Moon

MayFullMoon_zps55381b23[1]
May’s Full Flower Moon
Saturday May 18, 2019

2:11 pm PST/ 3:11 pm  MST/ 5:11 pm EST

“Dancing midst the flowers beneath the full moon’s light,
the wee folk tend the gardens on this soft spring night.”

May is the time when flowers seem to be everywhere and is most likely why the Native Americans called this months full moon the “Flower Moon”.

This full moon keeps the spring theme of new beginnings and fertility rolling. Everywhere you look there is new growth. This is a great time to sow seeds in both your outdoor and inner gardens. Career, finance and prosperity are good areas to concentrate on for new beginnings. This month which started with the fire sabbat of Beltane is still keeping things burning. Lust, passion and renewed vigor put a bounce in our step as we move toward the new things this moon has to offer.

To celebrate this fiery month and full moon, wrap yourself in reds, oranges and yellow or wear warm stones like amber ,garnet and ruby. Take special care to nourish your inner garden this month. If you set intentions or thought seeds for yourself last month, remember to take steps to help them grow and move forward.

On a very light note, I have been “asked” to remind everyone that brings out the garden fairies! This Full Flower Moon is a wonderful time to welcome the “Wee Folk” in your home and yard. This is a great activity particularly for children. Leave gifts of pretty stones, crystals, shiny beads and other glittery objects in your flower beds and planters. Hang small decorations in your trees and shrubs. The Fae appreciate gifts and love to be remembered!

“On the breeze their laughter floats and magic fills the air,
unveiling natures treasure, her gifts with you they share.”

MBG: Tonight’s New Moon In Scorpio Is All About Power & Seduction — Here’s How To Tap Into It

As we plunge into the shadows of the unseen universe within ourselves, our eyes, as well as our inner vision, will eventually adjust to the darkness. It is here where we can begin to finally see the light, as parts of ourselves that were once hidden are revealed. New moons are typically invisible to the naked eye, but we can look to the dark night sky as though it were a blank canvas—symbolic for new beginnings and intention setting.

Daily Good: A Call to Caring

“At the heart of caring is an ‘and’ not an ‘or’. Deep within us lies a potential that transcends our artificial limitations. Can we embrace the possibility that we are fully capable of caring globally, in every direction — that the compass of our caring could open 360 degrees?” In his new book ‘Caring’ Tibetan lama Tarthang Thulku dives deep into an exploration of caring the potent antidote it offers to the ills of our time. The following excerpt, authored by his daughter shares thoughts on how to create a more caring world.

EarthSky News: Peer out our galaxy’s south window

Tonight, or any clear November evening, try using the Great Square of Pegasus to star-hop your way to a view out our galaxy’s south window. In other words, you’ll be looking away from the flat plane of our Milky Way – where most of our galaxy’s stars reside – and toward intergalactic space. You can do this no matter what part of Earth you’re standing on.

Patheos-Pagan:  Irish-American Witchcraft: Witchcraft with Fairies; Walking the Wild Woods

There is a long history of witches working with fairies in various ways, both learning from them and being in service to them. In modern paganism we more often see this relationship played out very differently, with the Good Folk being approached from a more ceremonial magic perspective or treated as a kind of spirit guide or ally.

Inner Journey: 

WHAT IS LOVE?

“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully — in the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is to act. If you really love, from the depths of your Consciousness, that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way. Such is the immense, driving power of love.”
— Eknath Easwaran

“Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”
— Robert A. Johnson

“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

Beauty

“I pray thee, O God, that I may be beautiful within.” -Socrates

Ah, Socrates! Wisdom is beautiful! You are beautiful! Who would argues that this great philosopher wasn’t beautiful? It’s like a supermodel wishing to be more photogenic. We are all beautiful simply because we ARE. We are here, on this beautiful planet. We cannot be MORE beautiful, because we are already all that. Yet we can recognize that beauty, cultivate it, cherish it. We can express beauty, and show gratitude for it.
