A flower is looking through the ground,
Blinking at the April weather;
Now a child has seen the flower:
Now they go and play together.
-Harold Monro (1879-1932)
MBG: How To Surrender To Divine Timing (Even When It Feels Impossible)
The universe often knows the ideal time to bring something into your life. The problem is that our earthly ego isn’t always privy to this divine timeline and can get frustrated when something takes longer than expected, just as the ego can get scared when something shows up before we feel ready. Below are some things to keep in mind about divine timing when you’re trying to manifest anything.
Did You Know?
Up until the 1800s people would pull grass out of their lawns to make room for dandelions and other useful weeds like chickweed, malva, and chamomile.
Spiritual Unite: Are You Connected To Someone’s Soul?
How do you know when you are connected to someone’s soul? It is the most common question asked by the people who are connected to the soul of someone. They ask this question because they are feeling something different in their lives that they haven’t experienced before. People mostly want to know the answer when they meet their soulmate.
A Bountiful Moment
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. ~ Confucius
Daily Thought: Never be afraid to fail. It is your failure that is the testament to your life well lived. If you have no failures the fear would be that you have not tried to succeed at your dreams, hopes, or aspirations. Use your falling as a demarcation to the growth and tenacity of never giving up on who you know your best self to be.
Daily Practice:The challenge today is to not give up. Keep moving through a difficult situation, thought, or event until you come to a positive resolution. Work through the anxiety, or fear that you canï¿½t do it. Keep moving forward and remind yourself that there is no such thing as being a failure. There is only the choice to stop.
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Solas Bhride: A Goddess Speaks Softly in Many Forms
Of all the trip-related posts, this one has been the hardest to write.
Part of that is the realization that the trip posts haven’t been very well read. A few of you really like them, but they can be hard to relate to for people who haven’t been to Ireland or who aren’t planning a trip there. I write them anyway, to serve as a reference for future pilgrims and tourists, and also because I’m a storyteller – I can’t not tell my stories.
Inner Journey: Look inside for direction
“If you see your path laid out in front of you — Step one, Step two, Step three — you only know one thing… it is not your path. Your path is created in the moment of action. If you can see it laid out in front of you, you can be sure it is someone else’s path. That is why you see it so clearly.”
— Joseph Campbell
What? No one to follow? Now that’s a scary thought!
And yet, that’s what life asks each of us to do – to chart our own path. We are each unique. We’re told our uniqueness is our gift to the world. And so why would we even want to follow in someone else’s footsteps?
Can we trust ourselves to carve our own trail?
“To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling.”
— Jean Shinoda Bolen
A Note from the Universe
Please don’t be afraid. Not even a little. Not ever. The lions and tigers and bears can’t really hurt you. You live in a world of smoke and mirrors where there’s only the illusion that you could somehow become less than the greatest you’ve ever imagined yourself to be.
And it’s this very image, the highest from within you, that’s summoned your boldest dreams, daring you into the light with their promised rewards and drawing you through the very fears that have kept you from it.
Slayer of dragons. Matador of all time and space. Rightful heir to heaven on earth. Don’t be afraid. Not even a little.
Today’s Recipe: Pistachio Hummus
I’ve come up with a few hummus recipes where I replace the tahini with something else due to allergies or high cost, but this one is by far my favourite now. This hummus uses pistachios to replace the sesame paste and gives it an amazing flavour. I’ve also added green peas for colour, texture, and dimension. I urge you to try this recipe!

“I don’t believe in pessimism. If something doesn’t come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it’s going to rain, it will.” -Clint Eastwood
Our thoughts have so much power – we can color our day, and our world, with the thoughts that we think. So why not think optimistically? Why not think only of the best, the brightest, the most beautiful outcome in any given situation? We can make it happen. Anything is possible, ANYTHING… so let’s not defeat ourselves before we’ve even started by thinking negatively. Be an optimist, and let those optimistic vibes out into the world today!
MNN: This Finnish approach to daily life can help you deal with difficult times
Can our understanding of the world be influenced by the language we use to describe it? It seems intuitively true, but not all linguists agree on this point.
What we do know for sure is that some languages have words for ideas or concepts that don’t exist in other languages. Words from various Nordic languages have been enjoying their moment in the sun — think hygge (which is “cozy” on steroids and for all areas of your life) or lagom (an all-encompassing moderation in life
