MNN: Snow is teeming with tiny life

Frosty the Snowman famously came to life one day with the help of a magical silk hat. As recent research suggests, however, he and other snowmen might already be more “alive” than most people realize — even if they aren’t dancing around with broomstick canes. That’s because, regardless of how it’s sculpted or adorned, snow itself is often surprisingly full of microbial life.

EarthSky News: Don’t miss the young moon and Venus

From virtually everyplace worldwide on December 27, the moon will be better than one day (24 hours) old as the sun sets. If your sky is clear, you can catch the whisker-thin waxing crescent (and possibly, with much more difficulty, the planet Saturn) at dusk. You’ll surely see dazzling Venus, above them, blazing in Friday evening’s western twilight sky. This young moon will be fresh from its ring of fire eclipse a day earlier.

Inner Journey:

WHAT IS LOVE?

“When mystics use the word love, they use it very carefully — in the deeply spiritual sense, where to love is to know; to love is to act. If you really love, from the depths of your Consciousness, that love gives you a native wisdom. You perceive the needs of others intuitively and clearly, with detachment from any personal desires; and you know how to act creatively to meet those needs, dexterously surmounting any obstacle that comes in the way. Such is the immense, driving power of love.”
— Eknath Easwaran
“Therefore, when I say that ‘I love,’ it is not I who love, but in reality Love who acts through me. Love is not so much something I do as something that I am. Love is not a doing but a state of being – a relatedness, a connectedness to another mortal, an identification with her or him that simply flows within me and through me, independent of my intentions or my efforts.”
— Robert A. Johnson
“When you are aware that you are the force that is Life, anything is possible. Miracles happen all the time, because those miracles are performed by the heart. The heart is in direct communion with the human soul, and when the heart speaks, even with the resistance of the head, something inside you changes; your heart opens another heart, and true love is possible.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

“Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.”

Yet the mysterious human imagination itself may be our best resource for experiential recovery of a vibrant, participatory, and wildly sacred Earth.” Geneen Marie Haugen shares more. { read more }

Today’s Deity: Khnum

Khnum (Khnemu, Khenmu, Khenmew, Chnum) was one of the most ancient gods of Egypt, whose worship is thought to have been popular as early as the Predynastic Period. References from the Pyramid Texts of Unas confirm that his worship was long established even at that early stage and the Old Kingdom pharaoh Khufu (the builder of the Great Pyramid) was actually called “Khnum-Khufu” (“Khnum is his Protector”).

Luck

“How can you say luck and chance are the same thing? Chance is the first step you take, luck is what comes afterwards.”
-Amy Tan, The Kitchen God’s Wife, 1991

We need to be ready and willing to take that chance when it comes along – seize the day – take hold of the opportunity! And then, see what happens! Whether or not it turns out the way we had hoped, maybe that has something to do with luck. But we’ll never know unless we try. And we’ll learn and grow and stretch ourselves by taking those chances – and isn’t that lucky anyway?

The world may seem to be working overtime to baffle or confuse you, but you don’t have to take the bait. If you’re offered something that seems too perfectly tailored to your tastes or desires, it’s OK to be graciously skeptical. You can appear cautious rather than distrustful. Keep things simple today and minimize getting upset by torn or unsettled feelings.

She Dwells Within: Cat’s Angel Message for May 13, 2019

May’s Theme: This month brings changes into your life. While change sometimes feels scary, it is a necessary thing for our overall growth. Be willing to embrace it and allow it to happen naturally and get ready for better things!


She was deeply passionate about the sacred feminine. – Dan Brown


513:  Today the Sacred Feminine Spirit (which includes ascended masters, bodhisattvas and goddesses) is asking each of us (regardless of gender) to embrace our own sacred feminine energy. This energy helps us to embrace the compassion and love that we store inside and  allows it to flow outward. This also helps us on an emotional level by encouraging us to nurture and tend to the new growth that we have uncovered during our “weed pulling” activities. With things changing for the better it’s more important than ever to spread good vibes and plant new thought seeds where you can. Take the initiative and help create the things you want. Use your natural talents and creativity to transform your life for the better.


Work with some of the feminine archetypes and goddesses today.  The Ascended Master Saint Therese helps to soothe troubled emotions while leading us down the path of personal peace. The Ascended Master Mother Mary surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love. She teaches us about compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others. The Hindu goddess and bodhisattva White Tara provides a gentle energy which helps us to approach things with a focus on divine love and prayer. She says, “Come and sit beside me. I will help ease the worry in your heart and teach you how to replace it with gratitude and joy. This is where faith dwells and we must only open the doors and invite it forward.” And Aine, the Irish goddess of wealth and fertility shows us the path to increasing faith in both the Source and in ourselves. “True wealth is everywhere, but first you must find it within. Use the seeds you are gifted and use them to help you to grow your abundance.”


Our Sacred Stone for today is Rose Quartz. This gentle stone soothes emotions and helps us find unconditional love for ourselves and for others. It strengthens our ability to provide empathy and helps us to find loving relationships. Rose Quartz pushes away negative energy and helps us to release buried emotions and emotional conditioning that no longer serves us. What a great day for an emotional bubblebath!


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

CoffeyTalk: Cupid and the Arrow

Cupid, Roman God of Love and perhaps the most famous of all Valentine symbols, has always played a role in the celebration of romance. As the son of Venus, he is often depicted as a mischievous, winged child whose arrows pierce the hearts of his victims, causing them to fall in love. Cupid is derived from the Latin word cupido, which means “desire.” His Greek counterpart is Eros (from whom comes the word “erotic”), young son of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty, and Ares, God of War. In Greek mythology, Eros has a brother named Anteros, sometimes represented as the Avenger of Slighted Love and sometimes depicted as the symbol of Reciprocal Affection.

According to legend, Cupid’s arrows come in two varieties: the Golden Arrow, which generally signifies true love, and the Leaden Arrow, which represents wanton and sensual passion. He is also known to sometimes carry a torch with which to inflame desire between men and women. Cupid is not always successful in his endeavors, however. Sometimes his arrows turn people away from those who fall in love with them. In some mythological tales, Venus was scratched by one of Cupid’s arrows while playing with her son, the result being that the Godddess fell instantly in love with Adonis…the first man she saw after receiving the wound.

The arrow is the symbol for direction, flight and penetration. When used as a weapon, it is a symbol of power for the person who carries it, along with the bow. As a sacred symbol, Artemis/Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt as well as Eros used their arrows to pierce people’s hearts with love. In this case, the arrow also serves as a phallic symbol or masculine power. On Valentine’s Day, we see the symbol of a heart pierced with an arrow, which is actually a covert symbol meaning sexual union. When used as a symbol of direction it can be used both physically and metaphorically. When we see an arrow shooting high in the sky, it is an emblem of the link between heaven and earth or a message being carried directly to the Gods.

The arrow is also an analogy for sureness and swiftness since the arrow can only travel in a straight line. The astrological sign of a Sagittarius has the hybrid creature always in the process of shooting an arrow from its bow. Sagittarius has a Latin root, sagitta, meaning “arrow” and derived from a verb sagire meaning “to perceive keenly or quickly.” Therefore, the symbolism behind the arrow is intuition and quick-wittedness.

Inner Journey:

LOVE LIFE AND YOURSELF

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
— Lao Tzu

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.

We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.

“It matters not Who you love, Where you love, Why you love, When you love, Or how you love, It matters only that you love.”
— John Lennon

“Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where the fruit is?”
— Frank Scully

Spirituality
“Although I try
to hold the single thought
of Buddha’s teaching in my heart,
I cannot help but hear
the many crickets’ voices calling as well.”
-Izumi Shikibu (c 1000)
Sometimes following our spiritual practices can be a challenge because we are so distracted by the demands of everyday life. This is true for everyone – there never seems to be enough time, or enough quiet, to set aside for prayer, meditation, or contemplation. It is so worth it when we do! And yet, spirituality does not have to be a separate experience from the rest of our lives. We can choose to hear the beautiful song of the crickets’ voices as a gift from God. We can choose to express gratitude for the full and exciting lives we lead, however busy we may be!

daily Angel Message sms

I Dream, I Dance: Cat’s Angel Message for January 31, 2019 

January’s Theme: Stay focused on your desires and not your fears or past happenings. Our thoughts  are ready to manifest into reality and by staying focused on what’s positive we lessen the power of the things that we fear.


I Dream This Day of Wondrous Things, of Peace and Hope and Pride. I Dance My Dance with Life Today, I’m Filled with Love Inside. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


131:  Love and peace. Sounds like a 60’s revival doesn’t it? These words are just as important today as they were then and every living soul is touched by them. Don’t lose sight of the things that really matter and keep spreading love and peace. Today the universe is asking us to end the month with a shift of thought. By lifting ourselves to a higher level of love and peace we are able to see things more clearly as we become more energetically empowered. Remember, what you send out comes back so this is a great day to share this loving and peaceful energy or by simply offering a prayer for a friend or loved one who needs it, for the world, the earth or even for yourself!


Archangel Haniel helps us to find grace and harmony within ourselves and in our lives. She embodies a gentle, moon goddess kind of energy and fills us with a calming presence promoting patience and a taste of the mystical. The Ascended Master Serapis Bey brings us spiritual insight and fills us with a warm loving energy which is healing for both ourselves and others. And the Chinese goddess Kuan Yin reminds us “You are a beautiful soul and have so much to offer. I can guide you on the path of self love and help you to embrace the confidence you need to free your mind, heart and spirit. By taking care of your needs the doors to self empowerment will open for you.”


Our Sacred Stones for today include Kunzite, a  high vibrational stone which  helps us to create a balanced partnership with the Universe as it opens our hearts to receive Divine love. White Topaz also increases our connection to the Divine and brings feelings of happiness and spiritual awareness. Or simply use your Rose Quartz to enhance and bring forward feelings of loving peace.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Thought For The Day: Oct. 5, 2018 “Trust and Love”

 

Happy Friday,

This quote really hit me. How often do we tell someone ” I trust you”? Think about this. The words ‘I love you” are being handed out more freely in the last several years than ever before. But just because we love someone doesn’t necessarily mean we trust them. If you have someone that you trust then let them know. Maybe we should be saying ” I not only love you, I trust you as well”.

As a designer who is inspired by nature’s colors, textures, and patterns, I have trained my eye to find the beauty of the outside world and bring it in.

Nature can inspire me literally a plant I see and draw can reemerge in a print or abstractly�the dense colors of overlapping foliage can appear as a color scheme; the curling, folding edges of a leaf as a ruffled hem.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel. Chakras are energy centers in our body that look like spinning wheels. When our chakras are properly balanced, we feel healthy and happy.

In order to maintain optimum health and healing, we need to keep these seven energy centers balanced and aligned with each other. When they�re too small, we feel closed off, alone and disconnected. When they�re too big, life feels overwhelming, dramatic and out of control. In this article, you�ll learn where your chakra are and how to keep them balanced.

It’s not your job to like me…. it’s mine. Katie Byran

 

Daily Thought:Your opinion is the only one that matters when it comes to how you are viewed or cared for. You are the only one who gets to say whether what you do is good, or needs improvement. You are the only one who gets to judge whether what you do is enough to make your life matter. You alone get to decide if you are loved and supported. And always remember that can only be done by loving yourself.
Daily Practice: Act as if you are the most important person in the world today, because you are. Make sure the things you are saying to yourself throughout the day are supportive and kind. Put yourself first in making decisions and choices. When you do things today act as if you are caring for the person you love most.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: Witchcraft & Prayer

“Wait. You actually experience the gods?” This is a question I’ve had posed to me more than once, and sadly from many pagans and witches who are unsure if they’re working with spirits or their imagination. Of course I do. If I didn’t, how would I know they were real

Inner Journey: Giving Choice

“Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.”
— David O. McKay
I want to choose the details of my life. Fortunately, I’ve come to appreciate how important it is to give others the freedom to choose their own paths.

None of us wants our choice robbed from us. I can’t know what’s best for anyone but me. So why give unsolicited advice to others and expect them to follow it?

“The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.”
— Samuel Butler

“What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that may cost and wherever it may lead.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Optimism

“I’ve got to admit it’s getting better
It’s a little better all the time.”

John Lennon (1940-1980) and Paul McCartney (1942-) “Getting Better” 1967

When we learn to look at the world optimistically, we see that there is some evolution going on, some growth spiritually that just naturally takes place. We might lose sight of it at times, but because we are growing spiritually, things ARE getting better! And they’re getting better all the time.
