This is an invitation to step into your power and even take on the role of leadership. Pay attention to any reoccurring thoughts and ideas and put the information that you receive to good use. Don’t be afraid to meet the challenge, however if you find yourself besieged by worry or doubt take a moment to ground and center and turn these things over to the angels. Remember that you are worthy of meeting and these challenges and being victorious. Grab your faith and courage and allow yourself to move forward with purpose.

He helps us to find our strength and promotes clarity when we feel conflicted about what to do next by providing a boost of energy and by bringing order to your thoughts. He empowers the underdog and also acts as a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves and can help you to reach your full potential.

The Ascended Master El Morya can help if you have trouble staying present and focused in the now. He teaches us the importance of putting aside what we cannot control so that we are free to think about other things. He reminds us that it is our faith that keeps us grounded so that we can embrace both the patience and the clear decision making needed to make things happen.

Aine the Irish Fairy Queen and goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faithand finding our divine spark. She is inviting us to dance with her today and invite the Sun into our lives. This sun energy burns away the shadows within which gives new life to the things that bring us joy and creativity. She tells us ” Set yourself free today by letting your sacred spark come forward. This helps to light your way as you prepare to enter this magical time of abundance and new growth. Dance with me!”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Moss Agate. This gentle stone promotes new beginnings and can help release the blocks that are keeping us from moving forward. It attracts new forms of abundance and teaches us how to channel our energy in new, creative ways. Often referred to as the gardener’s stone Moss Agate helps us connect to nature, the earth, and our own inner garden as well. Carry it with you or wear it during times of new growth.

Cavansite. This stone helps to guide us through major life changes as well as helping us learn from past experiences so that we don’t make the same mistakes/choices again. It also helps us to retain information that applies to spiritual growth. Cavansite helps to promote new ideas and can be used in conjunction with the Third Eye or brow chakra.

Galena helps us to stay grounded and centered. It helps to open the mind as it dissolves self-limiting thoughts from our past that can get in our way during the manifestation process.

Blessings for a magickal day! Cat

It not only indicates “new beginnings and taking action” but it invites you to step into your role as a lightworker and light the way for others through leadership. The Universe is reminding us to stay focused on the things we want to create and due to today’s energy things can manifest much quicker than normal. Pay attention to any reoccurring thoughts and ideas and put the information that you receive to good use. Don’t be afraid to meet the challenge, however if you find yourself besieged by worry or doubt take a moment to ground and center and turn these things over to the Goddess, Spirit or the Angels.

MBG: The Age When Your Self-Esteem Peaks Will Pleasantly Surprise You

How will you change over the years as you get older? Past research offers strong evidence that, although there are parts of personalities that stay relatively set throughout our lives, we do in fact experience real character growth over time. The primary way we change is through maturation: All of our more pro-social, positive traits (things like conscientiousness and social skills) tend to increase as we get older, whereas many of our more negative traits (things like impulsiveness and anxiousness) tend to decrease.

Explore this thoughtful essay to discover simple practices for being a healing strand in this shared web of humanity. Ultimately, that healing will find its way back to you. {read more }

MNN: Understanding fake honey and how to avoid it

A recent report about “honey laundering” in Australia is another reminder of the benefit of supporting local farmers.

Testing showed that Australia’s biggest honey producer, Capilano, and some of that country’s largest supermarkets have been selling fake honey — many of them unknowingly — according to the Sidney Morning Herald. Much of the honey was adulterated, meaning it had been mixed with other substances. That was uncovered by a German lab commissioned by a law firm looking into the reports.

EarthSky News: Hazy light pyramid in east? False dawn

For the Northern Hemisphere, these next months are your best time all year to catch the zodiacal light, or “false dawn.” And the next few days are great, because the moon will be in a waning crescent. There might be some great photo opportunities with a waning crescent moon and the zodiacal light, since both will be located in the east before dawn breaks. On September 9, the moon will be new, or between the Earth and sun, and then it’ll be back entirely in the evening sky … gone from the sky before dawn, leaving it dark for your zodiacal light viewing pleasure.

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?

“I never know what I think about something until I read what I’ve written on it.”
— William Faulkner

What have you been thinking lately?

Do you know? We get so accustomed to our thoughts that we lose awareness of them. We don’t see how they are stuck in old habitual patterns, most of which don’t serve us.

Take time to journal so you can capture your thoughts on paper. By doing so, you will begin to take control of your mind and use it to best advantage.

“When you choose to understand [and] exercise control over the functions and attributes of your own mind, you will be empowered to create your own reality, to be completely self-reliant and totally prosperous.”
— The Delfin Knowledge System

Today’s Recipe: Gluten Free Blueberry Breakfast Bread

This is a great bread loaf for those looking for a gluten free, dairy free, and low carb option. You can have it fresh out the oven, but I prefer to cut them into 1/3″ slices, toast them, and have them with butter and/or jam. This bread’s consistency is a cross between banana bread and an English muffin. If you’d like it more like the former altogether, add a few tablespoons of sugar, as this recipe is barely sweet.

Leadership
“Divide and rule, the politician cries;
Unite and lead, is watchword of the wise.”

-Goethe (1749-1832)

It has been said a million different ways, a million different times: we’re all in this together. Great leaders understand this and show us just how much we have in common. Together, with all of our talents and intelligence working as one, we can accomplish so much, more so than we ever could alone.

A man loses his job. A woman discovers her boyfriend was cheating on her. Another person discovered he has cancer at 49. We don’t like change. In fact, just thinking about the possibility of change gives some people the chills. No matter what, change makes us feel miserable and if we could high-tail from it, we would and frequently do. We are creatures of habit and feeling a sense of security is normal and when we are knocked on our butts with horrible news–we take a dive into a foreign land

If you’re like most people, you associate Oxycontin with love. That’s fair—oxytocin’s nicknames do include the “love” hormone and the “cuddle” hormone, after all. Oxytocin gets its nicknames because it’s associated with several different feelings of bonding, closeness, and love.

The way the Western world is set up, disconnection is almost an inevitability.

It is common in our world to address this emptiness with various “solutions.”

There will be no new tales about the characters’ adventures and no new details about the history of their world. You’ve been a part a shared experience —

WHAT NEEDS ATTENTION?

“We often spend so much time coping with problems along our path that we only have a dim or even inaccurate view of what’s really important to us.”
— Peter Senge

Where are you struggling in your life?

Look at your career, finances, relationships, growth, health and emotions. Where are you experiencing major challenges? Of these, which area most needs your attention at this time? Set an intention to face this struggle and resolve it. ATTENTION on your TENSION often releases it.

“The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it’s the same problem you had last year.”

Leadership

“The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.” -John Buchan (1875-1940)

Great leaders see the greatness in the community. They understand what the community has to offer and they seek ways to express that. We can each be a leader, right where we are, just by noticing all the good around us, and bringing it to the attention of others.

Thought for the Day: August 24, 2017 ” Leadership”

Happy Thursday!

Leadership is something that we are all capable of. While some are comfortable in this role others are not and like to stay off the radar. The point is that at some point we find ourselves in the leadership role whether it’s by choice or default. Any time we offer guidance to another (friend, family member , co-worker) we are being a leader. Being a leader (even a reluctant one) doesn’t mean doing everything for them it simply means giving them a nudge in the right direction and sharing your knowledge and experiences. You don’t need to be a “hard-ass” to be a leader and in fact the best ones actually follow our quote for the day!
