Inner Journey:

SEEK UNION OVER SEPARATION

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

Our ego focuses on how we are different from the rest of the world. We connect with soul when we experience how we are the same.

Any time you separate yourself from other people or from situations, you know your personality is in control. At such times, shift your perspective to build connection and you will move into soul.

“As a holistic being you shatter the illusion of your separateness and reveal your connection to everything. This empowers you in a way that the ego-driven self could never contemplate.”
— Wayne Dyer

A Note from the Universe

You know those feelings of euphoria, excitement, and inspiration that send your spirit soaring?

Well, they’re just me and all the angels, finally rushing through one of the many doors you’ve knocked upon, down the hall, and dancing into the light of your searching heart.

And those feelings of depression, sadness, and powerlessness that make you feel like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders?

They’re us, too. Reminding you that there are still a few more doors to try.

Let’s get this party started,

Evolution

“A vital force is active in every individual and leads it towards its own evolution.”

-Maria Montessori (1870-1952)

If our purpose is to learn and to grow, then evolution is inevitable. We are drawn towards that which challenges us, which strengthens us, which supports us in our endeavors – all of life is evolution. We can’t turn it off. We can accelerate the process, by putting ourselves out there and experiencing what life has to offer and by making things happen for ourselves. And we can embrace the process, and enjoy the process, because we know that it just gets more wonderful and exciting and fulfilling as we go along.

Daily Tarot: The Sun

You can expect to have that long-anticipated ‘ah-ha!’ moment regarding your love life today. The Sun’s rays are far-reaching and they are able to bring relevant details to light that haven’t been able to come out in plain sight in the past. Vanity has no place when it comes to the new knowledge you are suddenly privy to. Use it wisely and with proper restraint.

A NEW VIEW

A friend shared this moment of awakening. She was moaning, “I never get anything done.” Her companion replied, “Perhaps you never get EVERYTHING done.” Oh… of course!

A shift in perspective can bring both understanding and release.

A Note from the Universe

When you feel happy, really happy, it somehow seems that you’ve always been happy and that you’ll always be happy.

The same is often true when you feel sad, or lonely, or depressed, or broke, or sick, or scared.

Something, perhaps, to remember.

ILY,

The Universe

Winter

“There is a wilder solitude in winter
When every sense is pricked alive and keen.”

-May Sarton, “The House in Winter” 1966

I know that we have readers all over the world, and for those in the southern hemisphere, this is actually summer time! But here in the U.S., where I am, we are in the midst of winter. Even in California, which is known to be pretty “season-less,” the temperature has dropped. That nesting instinct kicks in; we want to be warm and cozy. The weather brings us indoors, and like hibernating bears, it is a time for us to be still.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
