Your seal spirit animal is a messenger, asking you to look within yourself and find the natural flows that govern your body.

It is also a reminder to pay attention to your imagination – and your dreams.

MBG: This Energetic Imbalance Could Be Making Your Gut Health Issues Worse

Digestive issues are among the most common complaints I see in my private practice. Getting your digestion in check can be a lengthy, complex process—one that requires dietary modifications, stress management, and lifestyle tweaks. On a more energetic level, I believe addressing the solar plexus chakra is also essential

Today’s Deity: Silvanus

Silvanus  meaning “of the woods” in Latin) was a Roman tutelary deity of woods and fields. As protector of the forest (sylvestris deus), he especially presided over plantations and delighted in trees growing wildHe is also described as a god watching over the fields and husbandmen, protecting in particular the boundaries of fields. The similarly named Etruscan deity Selvans may be a borrowing of Silvanus, or not even related in origin

MNN: 11 natural mosquito bite remedies
Want to ditch that annoying itch? Try these home treatments

Though some mosquitoes can carry the West Nile virus or the now-infamous Zikavirus, most mosquito bites will do nothing more than cause an itch, which in itself can be absolutely maddening. Luckily, natural (and not so natural) mosquito bite remedies can provide itch relief so you can get back to enjoying the great outdoors this summer.

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 nearby

Patheos-Pagan: Quick ways to Ground and Shield

The world seems like it’s spinning ever faster, and that people are spinning along with it. One of the first questions I ask someone who is feeling discombobulated (after checking their breathing and hydration levels) is: have you grounded and shielded? Most of the time, I get the bewildered, no?! And then we work quickly to get that done. It makes a difference in this harried world.

Inner Journey:

LIVING IN HARMONY

“Peace comes not from the absence of conflict, but from the ability to cope with it.”
— Unknown Source

Angeles Arrien says that life will be simple if we follow the four-fold way counselled by indigenous peoples:
1. Show up, being present with all four mental, emotional, physical and spiritual intelligences.
2. Pay attention to what has heart and meaning.
3. Tell the truth without blame or judgment.
4. Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome.

“Peace is not won by those who fiercely guard their differences, but by those who with open minds and hearts seek out connections.”
— Katherine Paterson

Words

“Words make another place, a place to escape to with your spirit alone.”

-Robert MacNeil

We all know what it feels like to get lost in a really good book. What magic there is in that! What a gift that is available to us, to be able to share our thoughts and feelings and experiences with each other – to express our concerns and joys. All this is possible because we have the words to do it. It doesn’t matter if it is the spoken word, or the written word – written on a computer or by hand – in block letters, a smothe cursive, or even Braille! Words help us to learn more about ourselves, and about each other.

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Tower

If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.

Growing With Purpose: Cat’s Angel Message for February 2, 2018

Growing With Purpose: Cat’s Angel Message for February 2, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.

 

Gardening is all about optimism. I put a seed in the ground. I consistently tend it, confident I will see the results, in time, of the nurture I have provided.

Mary Anne Radmacher

22:  Today is Imbolc, Candlemas, the Festival of Light. The Universe is asking us to embrace the faith we have in ourselves and in the new beginnings this faith brings. Imbolc is a time of renewal and our number for today is one power and purpose. Just like the first signs of spring we push towards the light in an effort to grow. As we reach towards the light our faith empowers us to find fulfilment in achieving our dreams and goals. Don’t force to make things happen. This is another lesson that we can learn from nature. Grow with purpose yet allow things to unfold. By doing so we achieve an overall sense of balance which restores us to harmony. Take time today to reaffirm your faith and where you are on your path as you move into this new cycle. Open your mind and heart and guide your thought seed toward the light.

The celebration of Imbolc honors the Celtic goddess Brigid. This Triple Goddess of flame and light helps us to purify ourselves and our thoughts. She also promotes inspiration, creativity and the fertility needed to help our thought seeds grow and flourish. Use one of the Sacred Stones associated with Imbolc today:

Amethyst helps us to move forward. It is also a stone of change and helps us cope with the changes that new beginnings create.

Bloodstone helps to get our creativity flowing and infuses our being with courage and vitality.

Garnet stimulates our awareness of the now and helps us open the doors to our own unique creative energy.

Turquoise provides mental clarity while promoting the  peace and harmony necessary to simply allow things to unfold.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought for the Day: May 17, 2017

Quote

Happy Wednesday, we’ve made it to the middle of another week!

The rain is coming, we had a brief shower yesterday out of a sunny sky and the scent was a magickal experience. Our resident pair of nesting ravens are out and about this morning and as always they have a lot to say. The male has  a deep gravelly voice and he’s “chuckling” over something his mate has said on her flyby. We have a light breeze, a frontrunner for the storm coming in, the trees are whispering and our big  wind chime is singing to itself. This is one of my favorite times of the day, the world feels reborn, new……..fresh. It’s a calming and peaceful way to start the day. Nature has that effect and if we allow it’s energy to fill us we can start the day in hozro, harmony.
