Today’s Message: Cruising Life’s Flow

54:  Today the universe is reassuring us that the changes we are experiencing are for the best. Even though things in our lives may not be perfect, change has a way of drawing new blessings and people who make it interesting and can help us on our path of personal evolution. These periods of growth are an important part of life, and the truth is that we are all striving to be the best person that we can be. Remember, the key is to go with the flow and try not to fight or resist the changes taking place. Just do your best to allow them to happen and work with them, making the best choices that you can. The Universe and our helpers are here to assist and support us during these important personal transitions.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Sandalphon hears all requests and makes sure that they get to the Angel or Ascended Master who is best able to handle them. Ask him to help you clearly understand the information that you receive (his favorite mode of communication is music and he is associated with the color turquoise!). Sandalphon also provides us with an emotional boost of courage. This is important as it helps us to make bold decisions that will help us on our path.

The Ascended Master Solomon helps us to take what we are given and make the most of it. He teaches us how to do things more efficiently as he guides us through difficult situations. Focus and efficiency help us in our quest for personal evolution and help create the necessary stepping stones we need to move ahead.

The Yoruban Goddess Oya embodies the winds of change. She tells us, ” Allow the winds of change to flow through your being. In their wake, they will leave new energy seeds for you to plant. Use these seeds to help you on your journey. Remember child, that change must be embraced, not ignored, or simply put up with. Allow these changes to inspire and encourage you to transcend your self-imposed limitations.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

 Labradorite is associated with Oya. It is a good companion crystal that provides the strength and perseverance needed to navigate the winds of change.

Larimar helps to remove self-imposed barriers that may be keeping us from accepting our personal power and stops self-sabotaging behavior by bringing out the best in us. It helps us to see the things that we have to be grateful for and the tiny miracles that we take for granted. This sky blue stone also helps to ease our obsession with material things and shows us how to put things into perspective so that you manifest what you really need. It shows us how to go with the flow.

The gentle energy of Seraphinite clears the heart chakra and helps to open us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life and shows the changes that we need to make to best help us on our path.

Today’s Message: It’s About Support

43: Everyone needs a loving support system, which consists of friends and family. However, we also have help from the Divine realms in the form of the angels, the ascended masters, or our patron Goddess/God. By sharing our hopes, dreams, fears, or even grief with our support systems the wheels begin to turn and things are set in motion. It brings us renewed energy, peace, and healing. We then find that we are able to work the small miracles that enrich our lives as well as being able to appreciate the tiny miracles that occur on a daily level. The Universe is also encouraging us to take a look at both lifestyle and home. Ask yourself what changes you can make that will bring more balance, peace, and good vibes into your situation and environment.

Today’s Spirit Helpers include:

Archangel Raphael teaches us that it is through our spiritual journey that we can heal ourselves and our lives and regain our self-confidence and faith. This opens our spiritual eyes so that we may see what we have and how blessed we truly are as it teaches us how to make room for new things through the clearing out process. He helps to clear the way so that we can achieve balance by removing the blocks associated with giving and receiving by promoting flexibility in thinking and attitude.

She surrounds us with her gentle energy and helps to fill our hearts with love as she imparts feelings of peace and safety as she gently heals the dark, hidden places within while showing us the path that leads to compassion and forgiveness which are essential to healing ourselves and helping others.

The Greek goddess Persephone teaches us how to balance between light and dark and the importance of searching the shadows for what is lost or forgotten. Persephone tells us “Don’t be afraid to unearth what lies beneath or has been hidden. By shedding light in dark or weedy places you often find treasures that you had forgotten or set aside. These treasures can form the foundations that you need to navigate your path in life.”

Today’s Sacred Stones include:

Spirit Quartz is a crystal of peace. It helps to resolve arguments and helps to restore harmonious energy to the home., especially in the home environment, and restores harmony to the household by enhancing our sense of belonging. This crystal also promotes teamwork, patience, and abundance.

 The gentle energy of Seraphinite clears the heart chakra and helps to open us to love on all levels. It is also used to review the progress that you have made in life and shows the changes that we need to make to best help us on our path.

Tanzanite helps to link with the angelic realms, spirit guides, and the ascended masters.

Today the Universe is telling us that something in our life is about to change and new things are headed our way. These changes will be for the better so don’t let fear hold you back.

Thought For The Day: Oct. 21, 2020 “You Can Do This!”

Happy Wednesday,

Every so often it’s necessary to take stock of where we are on our path. I call this a “self-check”. Ask yourself these questions:

*Am I happy in the direction my life is taking me?

*Am I doing things that I love or am I just going through the motions.

*Am I doing things for ME or am I doing things to make others happy?

Remember that your life is yours to create and that your wants and needs are important. if something isn’t working for you then take action and change it. You are the only one who can!

Thought For The Day: July 2, 2020 “Just Start”

Happy Thursday,

Making changes and moving forward can be a little scary. We want to make things happen but may not know how to start. It all starts with that first step. Maybe that first step is the gathering of information or setting something in motion. The step doesn’t need to be big so baby steps will work just fine. What’s important is that you take that first step. You can do it!

Choose what lies in the shadows to be a matter for discovery and adventure, rather than fear. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


625:  Many of us are currently experiencing heightened sensitivity to what’s going on around us and within us. This can cause stress or anxiety in areas and in ways we have not experienced before. Today, the Universe is letting us know that this increased sensitivity will help you in both your personal evolution and the personal changes that you are experiencing. Our first reaction is usually to block things and if you need to do that that’s fine for the short term. However, the benefit will come through the experiences themselves and the angels are asking us to go with the flow and allow them to unfold. Understanding and growth will come from unlocking the place where loving-kindness dwells and opening your heart these experiences will help you to make healthy changes that will benefit you in the long run. Have faith in yourself and in the Universe and remember that you are safe and care for.

Inner Journey:

Willingness to change

“At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.”
— Thich Nhat Hahn

How are you feeling in this moment? If you are not feeling great, are you willing to make the effort right now to shift your focus so you feel better? Finding something to appreciate will do it.

If you are not willing, that’s okay. Don’t judge yourself. Just be aware that you are choosing to stay where you are.

“Choice of attention… is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases, a man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences, whatever they may be.”
— W.H. Auden

Wild, huh how the entirety of living deliberately can be summed up in just three words?

Thoughts become things.

Of course, beliefs are important too, but your thoughts can change what you believe.

And words are important, they’re your thoughts that will become things the soonest.

And taking action is absolutely critical, because it alone connects the dots.

Leisure

“Leisure, some degree of it, is necessary to the health of every man’s spirit.”

-Harriet Martineau, Society in America (1837)

A woman said this, so we can assume that she naturally meant every man and woman’s spirit! And this is so true. We care for the health of our body by eating right and exercising. We care for our mental health by learning new things and solving problems. The best way to care for the health of our spirit is to enjoy some time at leisure, doing what we love to do. It’s refreshing and invigorating!

-Lissa Coffey

Spiritual Unite: Does Rejecting Actually Equal Accepting?

They say if we want to change something within ourselves, we must first accept it. How do we accept something we do not like? Also, is it necessary to accept it?
We know that what we resist persists. So what happens when we are not happy with a component of our lives and how do we move into a state of acceptance so we can embrace it, grow from it, and release it for good?

Daily Good: Vesuvius at Home: The Power of Emily Dickinson

“For years I have been not so much envisioning Emily Dickinson as trying to visit, to enter her mind, through her poems and letters, and through my own intimations of what it could have meant to be one of the two mid-19th-century American geniuses, and a woman, living in Amherst, Massachusetts. Of the other genius, Walt Whitman, Dickinson wrote that she had heard his poems were “disgraceful.” She knew her own were unacceptable by her world’s standards of poetic convention, and of what was appropriate, in particular, for a woman poet. Seven were published in her lifetime, all edited by other hands; more than a thousand were laid away in her bedroom chest, to be discovered after her death.

So, during this time, many of us have been feeling the pull of our core wounds. While we enter a truly tender phase and are inclined to run from the pain, we must remember that when Mercury is in retrograde it begs us to look into our dark corners to understand these wounds and shed light on where our ego has trapped us

MNN: Remembering Apollo 11 and the giant step that changed everything
It’s been 50 years since the Apollo 11 mission and the first step on the moon. Here’s a look back in photos.

Fifty years ago, a rocket carrying the Apollo 11 crew blasted off from Earth on its historic mission to land humans on the moon. The mission launched from Cape Kennedy on July 16, 1969, carrying Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin.

Daily Tarot: The Pope

It’s important to stick with the plan already in place and be loyal to those who are already committed to you. You’re not so much part of a team as you are the leader of a group of people who will do what you ask of them if you only treat them properly and look after their needs, especially the tiny personal ones.

Patheos-Pagan: How to Hold a Solo Sacred Cacao Ceremony

It is a powerful experience to share the cacao with a group of people but don’t feel you must be in a group to experience the medicine of cacao. As cacao is linked with opening the heart and emotions, you might prefer to hold a ceremony alone in familiar surroundings. When you begin to open up and explore your emotions, you never know how wide your heart will open

Inner Journey: 

THINK FOR YOURSELF

“I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.”
— Rita Mae Brown

Where do you need to think for yourself?

When we begin to cultivate awareness of our thoughts and emotions, we begin to see just how much we live according to other people’s and society’s beliefs and actions. Don’t get upset by this. Just get in touch with how you really think and feel inside and begin to express your authenticity.

“Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.”
— Alan Keightley

A Note from the Universe

If summer resisted fall it wouldn’t really be summer or fall.

Better to celebrate the season you’re in… especially those of your wonderful life.

Sharing

“Friends share all things.”

-Pythagoras (580? – 500? B.C.)

True friends share things without even realizing it sometimes. When one of us feels joy, that joy is shared by our friends – we are happy for each other! Whether it is good news or bad news, it feels good to share it with a friend, with someone who will feel the emotions and help us through it.

-Lissa Coffey
