Spiritual Unite: When Your Birthday Is Between 2 Signs: The Cusp Sign Phenomenon

Sometimes people born during the last or first days of a new solar sign, can’t even tell which their zodiac sign is and feel connected to aspects of both astral energies. Although the rising sign determines the outer you, the ascendant energy that marks the hour of your birth, cusp sign is different; it occurs when the sun position is

MBG: 7 Small Steps To Letting Yourself Heal From Panic Attacks

The problem with panic attacks isn’t the sheer terror you experience when you’re caught up in one, nor is it the ensuing fatigue. It’s how preoccupied you are before having to face that same situation again. Perhaps it’s taking the train or plane, or speaking at a meeting—the thought of the situation alone makes your shoulders seize, and you have sleepless nights because the same circuits get activated in the brain simply by thinking about it.

Daily Good: Surprise is a Seed

Every day we are met with wonders beyond our imagination and simple acts that inspire a deep sense of awe. Yet often these occurrences go unnoticed as we’ve come to see them as ordinary. If we tuned into what was happening around us with deeper awareness, we might be surprised at what unfolds: the key turning in the ignition to start our car’s engine or the bodily processes that operate tirelessly to keep us alive. Each of these, though simple on the surface, can be hard for the human mind to explain. “Surprise is a seed. Gratefulness sprouts when we rise to the challenge of surprise,” writes Br. David. Read on to learn how the big and small wonders of our days can awaken a genuine gratitude within us when we learn to witness them in the spirit of surprise. { read more }

Elephant Journal: Love is a Verb. It’s also an Attitude.

We tend to see love as a feeling directed toward another person.
Surely, this must be the fullest of emotions.
This desire to give all of oneself away, freely, to the beloved—for the taking.

Patheos-Pagan: 8 Things to do for Mabon as a Solitary Pagan

Many Pagans are solitary practitioners, either by choice or by necessity. But a lot of Pagan activities for Mabon are designed for large groups.

Inner Journey: 

VALUE THE PROCESS

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear … as it is, infinite.”
— William Blake

When we stop and pay attention to ourselves, we begin to see clearly the habits and patterns that have kept us asleep and confused and misled for so long. With awareness, we can choose to shift from the selfish and narrow outlook of our personality to theall-embracing generosity of our soul, simply by changing our perspective.

Change your mind and you’ll change your world.

“You watch your mind to see who you are not. I watch my mind to gain a sense of its content, which has always been my pain. As I watch it, I get a sense of its impermanence. Thoughts come and go as part of a process.I see how content dissolves into process and begin to see the patterns in the process. Realizing it isn’t MY suffering, MY pain, it becomes THE pain. I’ve gone from the tiny, the small, and the individual to the universal. I feel OUR pain. When we do, we gofrom fear to compassion. Fear is MY pain, compassion is THE pain.”
— Stephen Levine

Solitude

“Solitude is as needful to the imagination as society is wholesome for the character.”

-James Russell Lowell, Among My Books

Solitude, time spent alone, nourishes our soul. And yet, some of us associate time by ourselves with loneliness. Maybe it’s that we’re afraid of being bored, or that we’re so used to having company that the silence seems awkward. Yet solitude is necessary for our spiritual growth. This is where we learn, this is where we receive those valuable insights. Make a date with yourself today – and spend some time in glorious solitude!

-Lissa Coffey

I’m often asked about whether or not someone should offer their partner, friend, family member, or adult child advice. My response is always the same: “Have they asked you for advice?”

Of course, their answer is always “no.” If they had been asked to give advice, they would not be asking me if they should offer it.

Daily Good: To Keep Company With Oneself

Philosophy student Jennifer Stitt writes a thoughtful essay asking whether we would become lonely in solitude or find new depths? Philosophers have long distinguished between solitude and loneliness. Emerson celebrated the former, in which “nature may speak to the imagination, as she never does in company.” Socrates celebrated the soundless dialogue “which the soul holds with herself.” And in the 20th century, Hannah Arendt muses, “Thinking, existentially speaking, is a solitary but not a lonely business,” reminding us that the self “is the only one from whom you can never get away – except by ceasing to think.” { read more }

EarthSky News: Young moon after sunset September 10

For some sky watchers, it’s great sport to try to catch a young moon that may – or may not – fleetingly show itself as a pale, skinny crescent in the western evening twilight.

Patheos-Pagan: The Magic of Language

As humans, and with the magic of social media, we share words on a regular basis. Moreso when there are subjects to be passionate about. Words tumble out in a torrent, gushing waterfalls of passionate feelings, insistent on getting points across to the restless eyes that may or may not scroll by.

Inner Journey: 

FEARS OF MONEY

“We are all powerless as children, and money looms so powerfully … we don’t grow up to claim our financial power until we look money directly in the eye, face our fears, and claim that power back.”
— Suze Orman

How does money scare you?

In your journal, write down your greatest fears around money, and see what comes up. If emotions surface, as they undoubtedly will, let them come. Really feel your feelings, without judgment. They’ll give you valuable information.

“In all realms of life it takes courage to stretch your limits, express your power, and fulfill your potential; it’s no different in the financial realm. In a buy-now, consume-now culture like ours, it takes courage to make the decisions today that may make us rich tomorrow. It takes courage to face up to the facts of old age and mortality and to prepare for them. It also takes courage to live generously, regardless of your financial state of affairs. …It takes courage to ask for what you want. And it takes courage to live honestly, wisely, true to yourself …and true to your desire for more.”
— Suze Orman

Awareness

“I break up through the skin of awareness a thousand times a day, as dolphins burst through seas, and dive again, and rise, and dive.”

-Annie Dillard, An American Childhood (1987)

How many of our waking hours do we spend actually “aware?” This is a beautiful analogy, I can just picture the dolphins playing, experiencing the freedom and joy that is theirs with every magnificent dive into the beautiful ocean. That same joy is ours, as well. We just need to break up through that skin of awareness and experience it!

As a society, it feels like we’re the loneliest we’ve ever been.

To make matters even sadder, these feelings of alienation were higher among millennials and Gen Z, meaning younger generations are growing up feeling even more isolated than those before them

Tibetan tea is an “acquired” taste, but once acquired, it can be as addicting as coffee.

It served Tibetans well in their cold climate, but is by no means not well-suited for warm climates—as long as you are not calorie or cholesterol-conscious.

EarthSky News: This week, watch for a morning moon

Tonight – August 27, 2018 – the moon is in a waning gibbous phase. August 26 was the full moon, and a full moon rises at the vicinity of sunset and sets around the time of sunrise. So, for the mainland United States, the August 27th moon rises in the east roughly an hour after sunset. That means you can catch the daytime moon over your western horizon after sunrise. Woot!

ALL IS MIND

“I want to know the thoughts of God; the rest are details.”
— Albert Einstein

Everything — absolutely everything — that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Mental, emotional and physical events are only effects.

When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, relationships, an accident, whatever — we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, “What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?”

“I went to the root of things, and found nothing but Him alone.”
— Mira Bai

This channeling came about from a curious experience. I was in a time of much writing, so most of the time I was sitting on my couch.

The mirror above my couch had cracked and the crack looked like a flame, which I thought was just a cool coincidence of how glass would naturally crack.

If you haven’t tried grilled watermelon yet, I beg you, please try it!

This is the simple-as-can be method, but you could try using different spices if you’d like. I urge you to try this on its own, though, so you can experience this incredible texture. If you don’t have a grill, you could even bake it.

Charge of the Goddess

History and Variations

Charge of the Goddess is perhaps one of the best-known pieces of ritual poetry in today’s magical community, and is often credited to author and priestess Doreen Valiente. The charge itself is a promise, made by the Goddess to her followers, that she will guide them, teach them, and lead them when they need her the most.

However, before Valiente, there were earlier variants, dating back at least as far as Charles Leland’s Aradia: Gospel of the Witches.

Since hopes and dreams are part of life then it shouldn’t come as a surprise that disappointment often accompanies those idealisms.

Instead of reasoning why something didn’t work out the way you anticipated, look for ways you can better your life because of a short coming. Every journey is full of road blocks and obstacles but it’s not impossible to move past them and persevere within challenges that arise.

Daily Good: The Happiness Multiplier Effect

Happiness is something we all strive for, yet can be difficult to define. Dictionary.com defines happiness as “good fortune, pleasure, contentment, or joy.” And in fact many people associate having more money with being happier. However, studies released in 2008 and 2010 show that there is a threshold for which money can bring happiness. Beyond being pulled out of poverty to a comfortable income, the effect of money on happiness is negligible. In fact the one thing that was found to consistently produce, increase, and spread happiness, was to give to others. To find out more about how sharing the wealth means sharing the happiness, check out this infographic from YES! Magazine. { read more }

Since the 60s, our views on nature and the natural world have considerably changed. If, in the 19th century, nature was seen as the receptacle of human activities, the importance of the natural world was put to light in the latter half of the 20th century. As our scientific views of nature changed, so did our spiritual views, and thus the concept of “Mother Nature”.

Inner Journey: 

WORK WITH TENSION

“You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.”
— James G. Bilkey

We need tension in our lives. It’s the force of personal evolution — it sparks creativity and higher consciousness. If we’re not comfortable with a situation, we try to improve it, right?

Tension arises through our experience of opposites. These opposites fight each other as each one struggles for dominance. Tension is transformed when two opposite dimensions of reality are brought together inbalance and in wholeness.

Know that tension is an integral part of growth. Instead of avoiding or resisting tension when it arises, identify the opposing forces at play. Make space for each of them to be there together and the tensionwill transform.

We encounter tensions between positives and negatives, mind and body, self and environment, self and others, and personality and soul – the dualities in our lives.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

“Patience is necessary, and one cannot reap immediately where one has sown.”

-Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)

It is easy to understand that patience is important, and even necessary – but why is being patient such a hard thing to do?! It seems so contradictory to what we have learned about taking action… and yet, it is equally as essential. There is a time when we must sit back and do nothing, when we must allow nature to take its course and not impose our human conditions and expectations upon it. Being patient involves having faith, that inner knowingness that all is as it is because it is.

We all need to shield ourselves before we go out the door. Just as we put on clothes to protect our body and carry an umbrella in the rain, we must put on our psychic shield to protect our energy. Creating your psychic protection shield should be done every day. In the morning, make time to create your shield. White light works best, but there are a variety of visualizations you can use to enhance your psychic shield. Try some of these this week and see how much stronger you feel.

Spiritual Unite: 10 Signs You Are The Carrier Of Your Family Karma

One of the strangest traditional beliefs in spirituality is that some of us are carriers of the bad karma in our bloodlines. Our families often hold bad blood and some advanced spiritualist think that the feud stays in the family and the new generations pay for the sins of the older generations.

MBG: Anxious About Summer Ending? We’ve Got An Essential Oil Blend For That

If you’ve suffered from them, you know: Summer scaries are real. Imagine an amplified version of the Sunday scaries that last way longer than a single night. It makes sense—the shift from summertime into autumn is huge and anxiety-inducing. It’s arguably more significant for both our bodies and our schedules than ringing in the New Year, for example, and yet we don’t give ourselves the time or head space to make sure we’re equipped for the change.

Daily Good: GK Chesterton: A Piece of Chalk

Imagine “roaring with laughter” at the sudden radiant realization that the very thing you so desperately need is right there in abundance all around. You may currently be keenly aware of lacking something physical like the artist’s chalk in this essay. Possibly, you are aching with the lack you feel for something deeper such as love or belonging. Read how expanding your awareness and truly ‘seeing” where you are in this moment sometimes allows the discovery of glorious abundance all around. { read more }

Be The Change

Reflect on one thing you feel keenly lacking in your life at this moment. Experiment with shifting your view of the issue or problem to the idea that it exists in abundance all around, waiting to be discovered. Then go on a treasure hunt of discovery.

Elephant Journal: Best Quote from the Dalai Lama Ever.

MNN: How a sound bath can make meditation easier

Even for people who’ve been doing it for years, meditation can be difficult sometimes. So, it’s no wonder that those who are new to the practice can be frustrated or confused about what’s going on. What’s meditation supposed to feel like? How do you make your mind stop racing? How do you know when you’ve done what you need to do to reap the many benefits?

EarthSky News: Young moon, Venus after sunset August 13

This evening – August 13, 2018 – look westward at dusk to see the young moon and the dazzling planet Venus bejeweling the evening twilight. The moon and Venus rank as the second-brightest and third-brightest celestial bodies, respectively, after the sun, so they’ll pop out into the sky shortly after sunset.

Inner Journey: 

DON’T THINK AWAY YOUR FEELINGS

“When emotions are managed by the heart, they heighten your awareness of the world around you and add sparkle to life. The result is new intelligence and a new view of life.”
— Doc Childre and Howard Martin

How do you intellectualize your emotions?

Many of us live so much in our heads that we intellectualize our emotions. We analyze, rationalize and explain them away so quickly that we don’t actually experience them.

Learn to honour your emotions at all times by being willing to feel them. Of course, you may need to exercise some judgment over how and when you express them.

“Learning to be aware of feelings, how they arise and how to use them creatively so they guide us to happiness, is an essential lifetime skill.”
— Joan Borysenko

Tetraktys: Pagan Beliefs and Practices – How to Be a Pagan in the 21st century

Although some have professed the death of all religions in the 21st century, the truth is that the world is becoming more and more religious and religiously diverse these days. As a matter of fact, I stumbled upon this article a few days ago. According to the Pew Research Center, if the actual trend continues, by 2050, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism will add many hundreds of millions of believers to their ranks, if we postulate that children will follow their parents’ religion, that is.

EarthSky News: August 6 and 7 before sunup: Moon in Taurus

On August 6 and 7, 2018 – in the predawn hours – the waning crescent moon will be shining in front of the constellation Taurus the Bull. Look for the moon in the vicinity of reddish Aldebaran, Taurus’ brightest star. Notice that Aldebaran is part of a V-shaped pattern of stars. This pattern is called the Hyades. Also, look for the little dipper-shaped star cluster known as the Pleiades, aka the Seven Sisters.

Did You Know?

Inner Journey:

BE, DO AND HAVE

“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you love to do, in order to have what you want.”
— Margaret Young

The formula for success is Be, Do, Have. If we seek abundance, we must be abundant in spirit. We can begin to cultivate spiritual wealth by opening our hearts in gratitude.

Start a gratitude journal today. Each evening, write down at least 5 things for which you are grateful. This simple tool will help you open your eyes to the abundance of your world right now.

“Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.”
— Estonian proverb

A Note from the Universe

Did you know that whenever you say, “I think I’m onto something HUGE, I’m so excited, I love my life, I have total clarity…” it’s like hitting an “ON” button that throws countless supernatural, invisible mechanisms into action that gradually begin physically rearranging the props and events of your life so that they’ll soon yield something HUGE, generate excitement, inspire love, and provide clarity?

And that whenever you say, “I don’t know what to do, it’s all so hard, I hate my life, I don’t ever want to return to time and space…” it’s like hitting an “OFF” button.

Of course you did,

Today’s Recipe: Rich Shrimp Stock

My local seafood shop sells head-on shrimp for nearly half the price of the ones already cut. This is a plus for me because I love to use the heads, skins, and tails, along with vegetable scraps, to make my own rich shrimp stock. Not only is a homemade version more delicious, it’s also so much cheaper. Shrimp stock is full of glucosamine, which is essential for healthy joint health.

Soul

“The growth of the soul may be compared to the growth of a plant. In both cases, no new properties are imparted by the operation of external causes, but only the inward tendencies are called into action and clothed with strength.”

-George Ripley (1802-1880)

Oftentimes when we talk about spiritual growth we compare it with the growth of a plant – planting the seed, allowing it space and time to grow with its own innate intelligence. We use this example because we understand how the growth of a plant “works.” We’ve seen seedlings sprout, we’ve had potatoes take root in glasses of water in our fifth grade science classes. And we need this kind of illustration because spiritual growth is not something we necessarily “see.” It is an internal phenomenon, something we feel, something we experience, something that goes beyond words or pictures.

Daily Good: What I Regret Most Are Failures of Kindness

For many people, the things we regret in life might be the big ones: either moral failings, career opportunities missed on the way to success, or all those things that fall into the category of “adventures we should have taken.” For American writer George Saunders, his list of regrets is quite simple: failures of kindness. What grabs at his heart the most is missing those seemingly insignificant chances to make a difference for the better in someone’s life. His story of a lonely classmate who never felt his kindness may give us reason to reconsider what we value and how we can make the world a little kinder in small ways. { read more } http://www.dailygood.org/story/2069/what-i-regret-most-are-failures-of-kindness-george-saunders/

MNN: 10 remarkable caterpillars and what they become

It’s hard not to be captivated by the fluttery fragile beauty of butterflies and moths. But the caterpillars they start from can be equally captivating.

As you’ll see, there are many different types of caterpillars. In fact, the variety of colors, shapes, camouflage markings and predator-repelling armor is truly astounding. They range from gorgeous to garish to downright freaky with horns and stinging spines. What they all have in common, though, is the mind-bending metamorphosis they undergo on their journey from egg to butterfly or moth (both are members of the insect order Lepidoptera).

EarthSky News: Mars closest to Earth on July 30-31

Tonight – on the night of July 30-31, 2018 – the red planet Mars comes closer to Earth than it has since its historically close approach on August 27, 2003. It lies 35.78 million miles (57.59 million km) from Earth on July 31, 2018, at 8 Universal Time (UTC). At U.S. time zones, that places the time of Mars’ closest approach before sunrise July 31, at 4 a.m. EDT, 3 a.m. CDT, 2 a.m. MDT, 1 a.m. PDT, 12 midnight Alaskan Time – and on July 30, at 10 p.m. Hawaiian Time.

Patheos-Pagan: Energy Flips: How Haters Make You Stronger

Recently, I’ve discovered that there are a handful of people who really dislike non-traditional (eclectic) witchcraft, and want to tell me how wrong I am for following my intuition. My practice and I have both been denigrated and called names. If I were to react to them, it’d eat a lot of my energy and time, and it’s not my mission to interact with haters. I’ve found another way to deal with the trolls. It’s called an “energy flip.

Inner Journey: 

BE WILLING TO REPEAT

“Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.”
— Christina Baldwin

Sometimes we repeat the Inner Journey messages in the series. Please guard against saying, “I’ve seen this one — I don’t need to read it again.”

The truth is: we are always changing. Who you are now is different from who you were when you read the message the first time. The circumstances of your life have changed as well. As a result, you may be open to new perspectives this time around.

Our ego is prone to think it knows it all, but life always offers us fresh and new experiences.

“It all depends on how we look at things and not on how they are in themselves.”
— C.G. Jung

Which pretty much means there’s only one person you can trust in such matters, and it ain’t me.

Silence

“Thought works in silence, so does virtue. One might erect statues to Silence.”

-Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)

Silence is the single most important ingredient in our pursuit spiritual growth. Yet how much time do we spend in silence every day? Whether we meditate, or pray, or just sit with nature, silence is like a hallway that we need to go through for the doors of Truth to open to us.
