Spirit Library: The Vibration of Abundance

What does abundance mean to you? For most people it is about paying the bills, buying a house or car, having a well-paying job; a means to end in what you seek to have. All of that is very true. However, everything in life has a vibration and working with the vibration of abundance you have the opportunity to actually move deeper into infinite abundance than from the human perspective

ThoughtCo: Hestia, Greek Goddess of the Hearth

The Greek goddess Hestia watches over domesticity and the family, and was traditionally honored with the first offering at any sacrifice made in the home. On a public level, Hestia’s flame was never allowed to burn out. The local town hall served as a shrine for her—and any time a new settlement was formed, settlers would take a flame from their old village to the new one.

On April 19, 2019, the Sun hunkers down in steady Taurus. For the next four weeks, the sensual, steadfast Bull will take charge, helping us prioritize—with a side of pleasure. But don’t mistake the slower pace for passivity. When you see a goal worth pursuing, make like el Toro and charge!

MNN: 13 cool facts about the oddball kakapo

The kakapo is an unusual bird. The world’s largest parrot was common throughout its native New Zealand until predators hunted it to the brink of extinction. Now the stocky green-and-yellow bird is critically endangered, and it’s the focus of a considerable conservation effort from the New Zealand Department of Conservation’s Kakapo Recovery program. There are currently 147 known adult birds, each named and extensively monitored

EarthSky News: Lyrid meteor shower best before dawn 

It’s Lyrid meteor time! We expect the Lyrid meteors to fly most abundantly tonight – from late evening April 22 until dawn April 23 – though under the light of a brilliant waning gibbous moon. The greatest number of Lyrid meteors usually fall in the few hours before dawn. That’s when the radiant point – near the star Vega in the constellation Lyra – climbs highest up in the sky, and when you’re likely to see the most meteors.

Patheos-Pagan: Beltane Sabbat Index: Rituals, Crafts and Aphrodisiacs for Witch’s High Spring

When Beltane tides peak, we witches celebrate the Grand Sabbat of High Spring that is certainly the most juicy and delicious of them all. Spring peaks in the Northern Hemisphere when we reach 15 degrees Taurus on our journey around the sun. This typically falls during the first week of May. For all your celebration needs, I offer this index of my articles on the thealogy and practices of this holiday, including rituals, craft projects and planning for Maypole dances.

Effort
“John Wooden taught us that doing the best you are capable of is victory enough.”

-Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

John Wooden, who coached UCLA’s championship basketball team for so many years, was and still is one of the best-loved sports figures out there. He is an icon, a legend. What made him such a great coach was not only his love of the game, but his love of his players, and his love of life. John Wooden was a philosopher. He was a sage. We would all do well to listen to what he had to say!

Herbal Muse: Herb Profile: Blessed Thistle

Blessed Thistle (Cnicus benedictus), also known as Spotted Thistle and St. Benedict’s Thistle, is a member of the daisy family that is native to the Mediterranean region, North Africa and western Asia. During the Middle Ages, blessed thistle was cultivated in European monastery gardens as a medicinal herb and recommended for gout and digestive complaints. In combination with fenugreek seed, blessed thistle is traditionally used as a galactagogue to stimulate lactation in nursing mothers. It is also among the 27 herbs and spices that flavor Benedictine liqueur, the recipe for which is known only to three people at any time.

In many ancient Pagan civilizations, gods and goddesses associated with the hunt were held in a position of high regard. While for some of today’s Pagans, hunting is considered off-limits, for many others, deities of the hunt are still honored. While this is certainly not meant to be an all-inclusive list, here are just a few of the gods and goddesses of the hunt that are honored by today’s Pagans:

Daily Good: Discovering the Sacred in Everyday Life

Tuning into the sacred of the everyday takes practice. Things around us don’t suddenly become more awe-inducing but our perception of them can change. “When something is recognized as sacred, it is known to have a quality that is beyond the material, physical world. It’s not subject to the mind’s analysis, judgment, or interpretation.” In this article by psychologist Gail Brenner, practices for opening your mind to daily graces are introduced, along with an invitation to expand your awareness through gentle reminders

EarthSky News: Mercury below Venus in morning sky

Tomorrow – April 16, 2019 – presents the closest pairing of the planets Mercury and Venus in the morning sky for all of 2019. These two worlds will be around 4 degrees (width of two fingers at an arm length) apart on the sky’s dome. They’ll be close enough together to fit (or nearly fit) inside a single binocular field. So if you see Venus, but not Mercury, in the predawn/dawn sky, try aiming binoculars at Venus to view Venus and Mercury in the same binocular field together.

Patheos-Pagan: Grounding for Beginners

Grounding is a skill that should not be ignored. The word itself is magical code for remembering who we are at the deepest level. It is a practice that grows with time, fostering inner balance and eventually combining with other techniques to become a foundation of calmness, awareness, patience, and courage.

Inner Journey: 

THE EYES OF THE SOUL
Today, we want to share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:
“My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well- being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.”

Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.

“As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the noticer.”
— Wayne Dyer

Praise

“When you do well, do not praise yourself but the gods.”

-Bias (6th cent B.C.) One of the Seven Sages of Greece

We can keep praise in check by understanding that the gifts that we bring to the world do not really come from ourselves, but from God. The good that we do, the light that shines through, is pure Spirit.

Beltane is a time of great fertility—for the earth itself, for animals, and of course for people as well. This season has been celebrated by cultures going back thousands of years, in a variety of ways, but nearly all shared the fertility aspect. Typically, this is a Sabbat to celebrate gods of the hunt or of the forest, and goddesses of passion and motherhood, as well as agricultural deities. Here is a list of gods and goddesses that can be honored as part of your tradition’s Beltane rituals

Daily Good: Brink of Extinction

Anna Louisa first became interested in Faroese ponies because of a children’s book. She soon learned that these enchanting creatures, ponies by size but often called horses due to their strength, were almost extinct. Between 1850 and 1920 large numbers of them were exported from their home in the Faroe Islands. By 1960 there were only five left in the wild. Fortunately they have made a remarkable comeback due largely to “the lady with the horses.”

Purpose
“Not only to see and find the Divine in oneself, but to see and find the Divine in all, not only to seek one’s own individual liberation and perfection, but to seek the liberation and perfection of others is the complete law of the spiritual being.”

-Sri Aurobindo (1872-1950)

The more we grow spiritually, the more we realize how we fit into the bigger picture. We’re never alone on this journey. We’re all in it together. The closer we find ourselves to spirit, the closer we see that we are to each other.

Lore for April

April, the fourth month of the current Gregorian calendar and the second month of Spring’s rule, derives its name from Aprillis, the Latin name for the ancient Roman love goddess Aphrodite. Other reference sources give aperite, the Latin word meaning “to open,” as the origination of the month’s name.
The traditional birthstone amulet of April is the diamond, and the daisy and the sweet pea are the month’s traditional flowers.

April is shared by the astrological signs of Aries the Ram and Taurus the Bull, and is sacred to the following Pagan deities:
Aphrodite, Artemis, Astarte, Erzulie, Terra, Venus, and Ying-Hua.

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve almost reached that time of the year when stargazers don’t necessarily need to grab hats, gloves and other cold weather accessories. We like to think of April as the gateway to those evenings in the summer when all that’s required is a blanket and a cold beverage

EarthSky News: Acrux, brightest star in Southern Cross

Bluish Acrux, otherwise known as Alpha Crucis, is the brightest star in the constellation Crux the Southern Cross. It is the 13th brightest star in all the sky. Because it’s located far to the south of the sky’s equator, this star can’t be seen from much of North America. Observers north of central Florida or south Texas are out of luck. Observers in Hawaii sometimes tell us they’ve spotted it. You have to be in the Southern Hemisphere to see Crux in all its glory. For us on the northern half of Earth’s globe, its southerly location is part of its magic and mystery. Follow the links below to learn more:

Inner Journey:

You are complete

“Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.”
— Wayne Dyer

Close your eyes and imagine that everything you are is enough. You don’t need to be better or different — you’re great just as you are. Can you experience the peace and contentment that owning that perspective brings?

Moving into such total acceptance does not mean that we stop growing. When we can accept who we are now, we open the doors to our own inspiration to do and be even more!

“Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.”

Transformation

“The sacred call is transformative. It is an invitation to our souls, a mysterious voice reverberating within, a tug on our hearts that can neither be ignored nor denied. It contains, by definition, the purest message and promise of essential freedom. It touches us at the center of our awareness. When such a call occurs and we hear it – really hear it – our shift to higher consciousness is assured.”

-David A. Cooper, 1994

In this passage, David Cooper writes about the shofar, the ram’s horn sounded in synagogue services during the Ten Days of Penitence. But there are a lot of different ways that ‘the sacred call’ may be expressed. The fact that we are pursuing our spiritual growth, that we are allowing ourselves to be more of who we really are, shows that we have heard that call! We know that life has meaning, and we are transforming our own lives to reflect that.

Spirit Library: Forging or Forcing

Blessed Being, you have reached a culmination point, a midpoint. The two seem so opposite, and yet they are similar. A cycle within a cycle.

Here you teeter on the point, a moment of rest as equilibrium is reached. How high have you traveled? What do you see from your broad vista?

Daily Good: Mary Oliver: Poet of Awe

Mary Oliver was in a class by herself. Distinguished with a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award, she was viewed with suspicion by literary critics for her status as a kind of rock star poet. For those of us who read her like a daily liturgy, her name is synonymous with other such essential words: mystery, wild, awe, terror, devotion, gratitude, grace. All of them come alive in her simple poems, that seem to rise from the crossroad of nature and spirituality, brimming with good questions. Fabiana Fondevila begins her process of saying goodbye in this essay full of beautiful snippets from the poet who helped so many of us find our way home to devotion and prayer through wonder and awe.

Elephant Journal: I’m Tired of Always Having to be Strong.

I’m tired, but even that is too casual, too shallow of a description for the weariness that lies in my bones.
I’m exhausted from being strong, from acting like I have it all together, and from being everything to everyone.

MNN: Young hosta shoots are edible. Who knew?

Add hostas to the list of plants you may have your yard that serve double duty as both edible and ornamental. The entire plant can be eaten — from the young shoots that emerge from the ground in early spring to the flowers that bloom in mid-late summer — but it’s most common to eat the shoots. The shoots can be sliced up and eaten raw in salads, or they can be cooked and prepared in a number of ways.

EarthSky News: Is Sirius the most luminous star?

Tonight – March 24, 2019 – look outside, and you can’t miss Sirius, the brightest star in the nighttime sky. Is Sirius the most luminous star? No. To astronomers, the word luminous refers to a star’s intrinsic brightness. 

Sirius, in the constellation Canis Major (the Greater Dog), looks extraordinarily bright in Earth’s sky. It’s our sky’s brightest star. But its brightness stems primarily from the fact that it’s only 8.6 light-years away.

Patheos-Pagan: Exploring Daily Practice

A few years ago I started going to the gym on a regular basis. I would listen to music on my headphones (earbuds, whatever) and walk on the treadmill while my daughter was in karate class. I’ve never been an athletic person and running only happens if I’m being chased, but there was an unexpected side effect from my little workout routine.

Inner Journey: 

DO YOU BELIEVE IN YOURSELF?

“We cannot rise higher than our thought of ourselves.”
— Orison Swett Marden

What do you believe about yourself?

If you are experiencing a lack of something in your life, chances are that you hold a belief in your subconscious that says you aren’t worthy of having that quality. Write in your journal the answer to these questions for yourself:
• Where are you not good enough, not worthy enough?
• How willing are you to receive?

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
— e. e. cummings

Transformation

“The sacred call is transformative. It is an invitation to our souls, a mysterious voice reverberating within, a tug on our hearts that can neither be ignored nor denied. It contains, by definition, the purest message and promise of essential freedom. It touches us at the center of our awareness. When such a call occurs and we hear it – really hear it – our shift to higher consciousness is assured.”

-David A. Cooper, 1994

In this passage, David Cooper writes about the shofar, the ram’s horn sounded in synagogue services during the Ten Days of Penitence. But there are a lot of different ways that ‘the sacred call’ may be expressed. The fact that we are pursuing our spiritual growth, that we are allowing ourselves to be more of who we really are, shows that we have heard that call! We know that life has meaning, and we are transforming our own lives to reflect that.

-Lissa Coffey

Beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder; indeed this is true. Beauty had been defined by society to be a specific shape, person, reality or experience. When you allow beauty as a vibration to integrate into your life you are moving beyond the ego perspective of beauty.

Daily Good: A Moment with Mr. Rogers

“I interviewed Fred Rogers, creator and host of television’s Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, by telephone a few years before he died. The occasion was the publication of his new book. Mister Rogers arrived on television after I grew up but I’d watched his show with our young daughter. She and I both preferred the often frantic Sesame Street, finding the Neighborhood a bit slow, sometimes a bit boring. Yet we kept watching it because we sensed something real and true behind the words and deeds of Fred Rogers and his friends and puppets on the show.” Jeff Zaleski shares more in this engaging piece about his interaction with a beloved national hero.

Noticing an obtrusive ringing sound in the ears can be a symptom of a medical condition.
However, in many cases, people—particularly those who are highly sensitive to energy—experience a frequent and loud ringing noise or buzzing sensation in their ears (also known as “white noise”) with no direct link to the physical body or credible medical explanation.

EarthSky News: Moon, star Regulus on March 18 and 19

On March 18 and 19, 2019 – the moon is moving through the constellation Leo the Lion, past Regulus, the brightest star in Leo, representing the Lion’s Heart. On these nights, the glare of the bright waxing gibbous moon might make it difficult to see all the Lion’s stars. But you’ll probably see Regulus, which is a 1st-magnitude star, that is, one of our sky’s brightest stars. And you might also glimpse the pattern of stars of which Regulus is a part. This backwards question mark pattern is a famous asterism within Leo, called The Sickle.

Inner Journey:

CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY TODAY

“It is always your next move.”
— Napoleon Hill

The great benefit of heightened awareness is that we have more choice in how we live our lives. At any moment, we can purposefully choose a new experience for ourselves. We can choose to pay attention, breathe more deeply, laugh, rest, play, appreciate, do something different – the possibilities are endless.

Whenever you remember, TAKE YOURSELF OFF AUTO-PILOT and really examine your situation. Take charge and make a choice that will enrich your experience. At the end of the day, reflect on what happened and how you felt when you chose a new line of thought, feeling or action.

“We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us — how we can take it, what we do with it — and that is what really counts in the end.”
— Joseph Fort Newton

“When a defining moment comes along, you can do one of two things. Define the moment, or let the moment define you.”
— Tin Cup (the movie)

And remember: “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”
— Neil Peart

Compassion

“What value has compassion that does not take its object in its arms?”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944)

Compassion at its best is active. We can feel someone’s pain, and then we can actually do something to alleviate that pain. When we come together with compassion, our hearts join, and we feel our connection with Spirit and each other.

-Lissa Coffey

Elephant Journal: The Power of Female Friendships: how we can Support Instead of Tear each other Down

Eight of us go down to the beach, blankets and yoga mats in hand.
We cross under street lamps and a bridge occupied by a dozen tabby cats.
Arriving to a foggy pier, we lay out our mats in a circle. We adorn the center with tea lights, sage, a tarot deck, and crystals. Fifty feet away from our circle, a green light illuminates the area. The largest full moon of the year is somewhere in these clouds, but for now we only have this blinking green light at the end of the pier.

On the evening of March 10, as seen from around the world, the moon will be shining beneath Mars in the west after sunset. One day later – March 11 – the moon will have moved in its orbit; notice it’s closer to Mars. Then the moon moves on in orbit around Earth. By March 12, it is near the Pleiades and Aldebaran, both of which are important sky signposts in the constellation Taurus the Bull.

KNOW YOURSELF

“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.”
— Abraham H. Maslow

STOP AND PAY ATTENTION! Set an intention to be more aware. Become a watcher, of yourself and what’s around you. Develop the witness, the part of you that can step back from life and impartially observe how you react and think and feel. We learn so much about who we are!

“Knowing others is wisdom; knowing the self is enlightenment.”
— Tao Te Ching

“The true profession of man is to find his way to himself.”

Energy

“Energy is Eternal Delight.”

-William Blake (1757-1827)
Think about the energy of the sun. It provides light and heat and even solar power. It is there for us all day; we can count on it. And through the great organizational power of the universe, night falls. Day and night. Activity and silence. There is a lesson for us here. Delight in the differences. Energy gained through silence can be joyful, fruitful, and enriching.
