The Light is gathering and manifesting upon the Earth bringing forth a rebalancing within of all creation. The false ideas of separation between ourselves and the rest of life is being dissolved offering us the opportunity to embrace and consciously know our innate connection to the universe, the earth, nature, and each other. Our belief in the illusion of separation has caused our imbalances and as we continue to awaken and heal, we bring ourselves back into alignment with all of creation

Today’s DIY: Crafting A Calendula and Rose Salve From Scratch

_________________

“Perhaps the most famous icon of the holiday is the jack-o-lantern. Various authorities attribute it to either Scottish or Irish origin. However, it seems clear that it was used as a lantern by people who traveled the road this night, the scary face to frighten away spirits or faeries who might otherwise lead one astray. Set on porches and in windows, they cast the same spell of protection over the household. (The American pumpkin seems to have forever superseded the European gourd as the jack-o-lantern of choice.) Bobbing for apples may well represent the remnants of a Pagan ‘baptism’ rite called a ‘seining’, according to some writers. The water-filled tub is a latter-day Cauldron of Regeneration, into which the novice’s head is immersed. The fact that the participant in this folk game was usually blindfolded with hands tied behind the back also puts one in mind of a traditional Craft initiation ceremony.”

EarthSky News: Deneb Kaitos Marks The Tail Of Cetus

Deneb Kaitos is the brightest star in the constellation Cetus the Whale (or Sea-Monster). In star names, the word deneb usually means tail. And so it is with this star. It marks the tail of Cetus. Deneb Kaitos is also known by two alternate names, Beta Ceti and Diphda. It shines at magnitude 2, making it about as bright as Polaris the North Star. Neither Polaris nor Deneb Kaitos shines brightly enough to be super noticeable. But both are well within the limit of visibility to the unaided eye. Based on parallax measurements, Deneb Kaitos lies at an estimated distance of 96 light-years from Earth.

Inner Journey:

PERCEPTION DEFINES OUR REALITY

“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”
— Henri Bergson

Our entire universe is energy — vibrating waves of pure potential. The electromagnetic vibrations of our consciousness interact with the energetic potential that exists everywhere as the life force to ‘collapse’ the waves and create matter. So the patterns of our minds create the form of our world.

By simply observing a form, we influence it. We in turn are influenced by others. This challenges us to be more aware of the quality of our being and the vibrations we transmit.

“There is no reality in the absence of observation.”
— The Copenhagen Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

Contentment
“Our happiness or unhappiness depends as much on our temperaments as on our luck.”

-La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)


Contentment is a choice. We have the choice in how we perceive our situations. We have the choice in how we react, and respond, to any circumstance. Circumstances change, and so can our temperament. Why not choose to look on the bright side? Let’s try it, and see how it feels. Shift.

BEING ALONE

“I wish Pooh were here. It’s so much more friendly with two.”
— Piglet (A.A. Milne)

Are you willing to be alone?

Ingrid Bacci says, “If you are afraid of being alone, you are dependent on others for your sense of self, and if you are dependent on others, you block your receptivity to inner guidance. Being willing to be alone involves being willing to be different,to have commitments and values that don’t blend with any crowd.”

— Eugene O’Neill

“I celebrate myself, and sing myself.”

Insight
“You can change your beliefs so they empower your dreams and desires. Create a strong belief in yourself and what you want.”

-Marcia Wieder


Believe in yourself. Be yourself. Wise words, but do we take them to heart? Do we even understand the deep meaning of these words? First we need to know who we are. When we recognize and acknowledge the wisdom, strength and beauty that is within us, we understand that we can’t be anything less. Our dreams and desires are empowered by our faith and conviction

Inner Journey:

FORGIVENESS BRINGS JOY

“The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Do you feel worthy of having joy? Do you feel you deserve it?

The first step to activating our inner joy is to eliminate the blocks to it. We can start by truly forgiving ourselves and all others. Forgiveness calls for a shift in our perception. It is easier to forgive ourselves and others when we really understand that each of us has always done the very best we knew to do at that time.

“If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole.”
— Joan Borysenko

Inner Journey:

NOTHING NEEDS TO BE FIXED

“If you are ready to accept all which you find in yourself, you will be able to move through everything with deep sensitivity, awareness, love and understanding.”
— Gerd Ziegler

As we understand it, the spiritual journey is not about becoming perfect. It’s about acceptance, releasing judgment, and embracing everything in wholeness.

This is a great challenge for our personality. We’ve grown up comparing ourselves to others, always judging how we’re better and worse than those around us. And many of us are very good at finding fault with ourselves.

If we release judgment, then nothing needs to be fixed — including you. Explore inviting your soul to help you accept all that is and experience a whole new way of living.

“Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.”
— Julia Cameron

Honesty
“No legacy is so rich as honesty.”

  • William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

  • Being called honest is a compliment. And it feels good to hear that someone appreciates that about us. It’s because we value honesty, it’s important to us. We like to be dealt with fairly and honestly. Honesty engenders trust, which builds strong relationships.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The Hermit

Right and wrong are important, yes, but today equally or more important could be doing what helps the most or alleviates the most pain or difficulty for someone or something. It could be as simple as feeding a stray cat, but it could be much more complicated, especially if it involves someone you care deeply for. Try to see things clearly and don’t overreact about anything

Inner Journey:

MAKE FRIENDS WITH TIME

“We race to win, but at what price? Driven by the threat of time, we wonder why we feel so empty at the end of action-filled days.”
— Diana Hunt

Do you fly through each day with your eyes always on the clock? In western cultures, we’ve been taught that we need to impose our own order on life. As a result, we think we need to control every aspect of our day.

How might you enter into a new relationship with time? How might you take back the power you’ve given to the clock?

This is the time of your life. How are you spending it?

“When busyness is the measure of time, no matter how much time exists it is never enough.”
— Diana Hunt

A Note from the Universe

Please notice those who already possess as you wish to possess or who have already achieved as you wish to achieve and ask yourself whether or not they have some special gift that you don’t have?

Do they have more angels than you? Are they any more loved than you? Have they suffered more, worked harder, or waited longer than you? Would I permit them to be “luckier” or have it easier than you?

You will see, after careful consideration, that their manifestations depended upon none of these things. They arrived simply because they expected them to arrive, and they lived their lives accordingly.

Boom,

The Universe

Communication
“Violence of the tongue is very real – sharper than any knife.”

-Mother Teresa


There’s a child’s song that says “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me.” Since most of us have been hurt by words, we know the truth is that words can be sharp, and our emotions can be fragile. The good news is that words can also be very healing, and loving. Our thoughtful communication can help a person to feel really good.

Inner Journey:

5 STEPS TO SELF-ACTUALIZATION

“Every human action, whether it has become positive or negative, must depend on motivation.”
— Dalai Lama

Monitoring what motivates me has helped me see how I am growing. I do things for different reasons now than I did 10 years ago. As we pay ongoing attention to our motives, we can see how both our conscious and unconscious attitudes are changing.

Here are some ways that our motives can shift with rising consciousness:

I desire
I want to collect things
I want to know
I want to serve
I want to be
What are your motives as you participate in life?

“There are three kinds of people and three kinds of richness:

people who want to have, to collect
people who want action, work and labor
people who want to be
“The real richness is in be-ness. People can take all that you have, all that you collected. People can stop your labor, or an accident can stop you. When you are, you never lose what you are.”
— Torkom Saraydarian

“You are what you think. You are what you go for. You are what you do!”
— Bob Richards

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Eyes
“In a dark time, the eye begins to see.”

-Theodore Roethke (1908-1963)


When we go from a bright room to a dark room at first we can’t see. But once our eyes adjust to the light, we start to see better, until we become comfortable making our way around. In a dark time, when things aren’t going the best for us, and we feel as if we’re struggling, it’s difficult to find our way. But we learn, and we grow, and we begin to understand and benefit from the experiences we go through.

Daily Good: Rising from the Fire

If you look in the eyes of the young, you see flame. If you look in the eyes of the old, you see light

  • Victor Hugo –

Rising from the Fire

“How can we reconcile the immensely destructive force of fire with its equally limitless creative potential? Forest managers light intentional blazes to clear overgrowth and begin anew the cycle of life. A fireplace becomes a hearth, offering heat, light, and survival for the homes residents. And fiery volcanic activity can obliterate what stands in its path all the while creating new land in a matter of hours and days that becomes highly fertile soil in thousands or millions of years. The element of fire–and its life-giving results in the form of heat and light–represent both a powerful metaphor and an undeniable fact of organic and spiritual transformation. Evelyn Underhill, in her classic book Mysticism, states unambiguously ‘No transmutation without fire.’ And ‘Here, as elsewhere…the self must lose to find and die to live.'” { read more }

Be The Change

What are some of the experiences of fire, literal or metaphorical in your own life? Take a moment to reflect on how they have transformed you. Ask someone in your community about their own pivotal experiences of being “fire-tested.”

Inner Journey:

TUNE INTO THE INNER CRITIC

“A critic is a legless man who teaches running.”
— Channing Pollock

Are you aware of your inner critic? We all have this voice that tells us we are bad, stupid, clumsy, cowardly…. Although its intent is to help us succeed, the harsh self talk of our critic just serves to drain our energy and lower our morale and immune system.

To defuse the inner critic, we need to recognize when the critic is speaking. We need to know that this voice does not necessarily speak for who we really are. This is an old pattern that may no longer be serving us. We want to open to the possibility that the words are not likely true. We can ask ourselves, “Are these words helpful?”

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt

“Abilities wither under faultfinding, blossom with encouragement.”
— Donald A. Laird

“Never react emotionally to criticism. Analyze yourself to determine whether it is justified. If it is, correct yourself. Otherwise, go on about your business.”
— Norman Vincent Peale

There are some things that are best forgotten. And when I remember what a few of them are, I’ll drop you a line. But a couple of things worth remembering, that are all too easily forgotten, are the times in your life when you felt absolutely alone and uncertain. Yet somehow, perhaps beyond perception, there was a great click, after which suddenly a new friend appeared, an idea was imparted, or a connection established, causing the tides to turn and the floodgates to open.

And remembering this, should such “alone and uncertain times” ever revisit, however dark they may seem, you’ll at least be comforted by recalling how transient they always are.

Pass it on,

The Universe

Example
“You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.”

-Oliver Goldsmith (1728-1774)


There’s another saying that talk is cheap. Sure, it’s easy to say something, but it takes time and effort to take action on it. Live life by example. We can’t just say that we’re “into the environment” and then go around driving SUVs and eating out of non-recyclable Styrofoam. Our actions give our words their meaning, and make them carry more weight.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Indecision is not necessarily a bad thing, but taken to extremes it can make you pessimistic and defeatist. Take the time you need to make the choices you need but don’t get bogged down and grind to a halt. Take yourself in hand and refuse to feel helpless in the face of a challenging (or tempting) situation. Refuse to be rushed by anyone, too

Many are struggling with all the changes and the rapid transformations occurring. Yet this is a time where we are urged to claim our energy and our power as it will enable us to boldly step forward despite uncertainty and fear. We are learning to create the life of our soul and as such must discover where we are holding ourselves back and why.

Inner Journey:

TRYING TOO HARD?

“Thinking about interior peace destroys interior peace. The patient who constantly feels his pulse is not getting any better.”
— Hubert van Zeller

Are you trying too hard to be good, to be perfect, to be spiritual?

‘Trying too hard’ is an expression of fear. If you can replace the fear with faith that everything always serves our highest good, your confidence and peace of mind will serve your aspirations.

“So many people work so hard, to achieve, attain, accumulate and cherish their fortunes. How many of us blissfully fill our days and nights being the Divine expression we are? This is the meaning of life. It is to be. As a result, all of your creations are a natural outflow from the Divine within your being. This is the joy of life.”
— Barbara Rose

Victory
“The first step towards victory is to gain courage.”

-Plutarch (C.E. 46? – 119?)


Whenever we embark upon any endeavor, there’s always a first step. To reach a goal we must take action. To take action we must have courage. When we set our minds to it, we can achieve success, we can be victorious!

Daily Tarot: The Emperor

You have extra protection today, but this is not a reason to act rashly or take extra risks. In fact, you may be called upon to protect someone else or to safeguard some progress or advantage that was recently gained. Have self-confidence in all situations but don’t take your safety for granted. Be willing to be responsible for those around you and win a lot of loyalty.

Currently, it may be difficult to maintain a feeling of balance and flow as the old routines, cycles, and patterns, which have governed our lives continue to shift and fall away. The continual need to adjust and adapt to changing circumstances is leaving many hanging by a thread. However, it is an ideal time to make changes, to embody our purpose and to pay attention to the opportunities and possibilities being presented within the chaos.

Inner Journey:

GIVE TO YOURSELF FIRST

“First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.”
— Epictetus

Do you want more in your life? More love? More happiness? More money? More satisfaction? Then explore how you can BE more.

In the Delfin Knowledge System, Leslie Fieger advises, “You can have more when you are willing to give more. You must begin this process by giving more to yourself. Give yourself more time; give yourself more attention; give yourself more love; give yourselfmore of what you want. Then decide how to offer the more that you are (and have) to the world and you will receive even more back in return.”

“Let the waters settle you will see stars and moon mirrored in your Being.”
— Rumi

Virtue
“Society can only be happy and free in proportion as it is virtuous.”

-Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797)


Happy and free. Sounds good, doesn’t it? In any society growth starts with the individual. One by one, each of us contributes to the whole in our own unique way. By being virtuous we’re helping ourselves, and also helping the entire world

Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.
