Inner Journey: BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

“…for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic.”
— Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews

“Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world then calls the state we were in a delusion or infatuation … But we merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magic when the morning came. …In truth, we can go to the moon and retain its magic for a lifetime.”
— Marianne Williamson

“We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests … What a pleasure to be wrong. Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure … not only are they here-and-now, they’re all that ever lived on earth! Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we’ve never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish. Intuition whispers true: We’re not dust, we’re magic!”
— Richard Bach

A Note from the Universe

Of course you probably could have done something else entirely with your life; something easier or more common, and have been even more successful than you are today.

But then, you wouldn’t become as successful as you are about to be.

Remember, you wanted it all?

Today’s Recipe: Clementine and Chocolate Chip Cake

I made the proto-type for this clementine cake by digging through the kitchen to see what we had. My seven-year-old son adored it. This is the second iteration and I found it’s a winner. The whole fruit and whole flour provide a decent amount of nutrition for a dessert. The texture came out surprising smooth. Enjoy.

Birth
“Birth may be a matter of a moment. But it is a unique one.”

-Frederick Leboyer


Birth is a beginning. It is the single event that starts us on our journey in this lifetime. Our grand entrance into the world! And here we are. Somehow all the right pieces were in place to make this miracle, and we were born to live this life. Life is precious.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: The World

Take your place in the World and be in your element all day long. Your practical mind and easy nature let you cruise through the regular maze that is daily life. If anything out of the ordinary arises, you’ll know instinctively how to approach it and resolve things to your satisfaction. Today may not be easy or effortless but it will be rich in success and approval – from yourself and probably others as well.

MBG: 4 Ways To Practice Active Meditation If You Can’t Sit Still

You want to meditate. You know it is good for you. You’ve heard about all the benefits, from a calmer mind to less stress. But for some reason you just can’t seem to sit still. Maybe you don’t think you have time or you’re a little fidgety, or maybe you want something more tangible to focus on, whatever the reason, sometimes meditation can feel a little, well, passive.

EarthSky News: Watch Capella flashing red and green

This evening, check out one of the flashiest stars in the sky. It’s so bright that every year in northern autumn, we get questions from people in the Northern Hemisphere who see a bright star twinkling with red and green flashes. It’s found low in the northeastern sky at nightfall as seen from Northern Hemisphere locations. That star is likely Capella, which is actually a golden star.

Inner Journey: 

PROBLEMS OR SOLUTIONS?

“If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bring everything into the realm of possibility.”
— Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Stop and be aware! Have you been thinking about what you want or what you don’t want?

It’s so easy to lock our minds onto problems rather than opening to receive solutions. But what we think is what we get. This is so important! If we continually focus on problems and negatives, that’s where we’ll stay.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”
— Helen Keller

Wonder

“Men love to wonder, and that is the seed of our science.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

Emerson always states it so well. Wonder is that “what if” that spurs us on to progress. It is the seed of science, but also the seed of creativity. We come up with ideas before we can make them into a reality – and those ideas come from wonder. Let’s make it a point to spend some time just wondering today.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Emperor:
Kindness will take you very far today. It’s not a show of weakness or inferiority to engage in that random act of kindness. Think of it as acting out of generosity of spirit. The bigger your heart today, the more respect and cooperation will come your way. Make sure your kindness is genuine and from a genuine place. Then you’re virtually unassailable.
