Spirit Library: Energies Are Merging (a message from Kate Spreckley)

For some time now the energies of the Earth have retracted, which has given the planet time to rebuild and reorganise her evolving energies. With this New Moon phase there is a surge of Earth energy which is rising to the surface of the planet to merge with the incoming cosmic energy.

The Healing Medicine of Trees – Elder
by Susun Weed

ELDER is the last letter of the ogam alphabet (Ruis). It rarely attains tree status where it grows in North America, but it has taken me by surprise several times in Europe by the height to which it can grow (up to ten meters) and the tough bark it is capable of making.

Inner Journey: ON SELF-HONESTY

“No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne

“You cannot fake a relationship and feel right with yourself or anyone else. Changing yourself to fit what you think other people want doesn’t work. Pretending to be someone other than yourself only broadens the distance between the person you are and the one with whom you’re trying to establish closeness.”
— Mary Manin Morrissey

“Just as surely as distress must follow self-deceit, healing must follow self-honesty.”
— Vernon Howard

“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”
— Janis Joplin

A Note from the Universe

Do you know the main difference between messing with the cursed hows and turning them over to me?

Besides smoother, more radiant skin.

No, besides more free time.

No, besides more interest income.

Right! More laughter!

Science
“Science is not to be regarded merely as a storehouse of facts to be used for material purposes, but as one of the great human endeavors to be ranked with arts and religion as the guide and expression of man’s fearless quest for truth.”

-Richard Arman Gregory (1864-1952)


Ah, science! It had a whole different meaning to me when I was in high school and had to memorize the periodic table. Now I look at science as these amazing discoveries that lead us to the truth. It’s not such a big leap from spirituality to science. We can see all of the miracles that exist under a microscope, or through a telescope. And right here we are living miracles, every moment. In the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know?” several scientists weigh in on the facts of our existence, and what is happening all around us, all the time.

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

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.

ThoughtCo: Mabon History: The Second Harvest

Two days a year, the Northern and Southern hemispheres receive the same amount of sunlight. Not only that, each receives the same amount of light as they do dark—this is because the earth is tilted at a right angle to the sun, and the sun is directly over the equator. In Latin, the word equinox translates to “equal night.”

Elephant Journal: How Healing our Root Chakra can Help us Feel More Stable & Grounded in 2020

The root chakra is connected to our sense of trust, home, and security.
This year especially, it seems we are all being tested in these areas.

In a broad sense, it can feel as though there isn’t much we can do to guarantee the state of things in the world or the country, and that can feel discomforting—particularly this election year.

Inner Journey: REFLECTIONS ON EFFORT

The anxious student asked the Zen master how long to enlightenment. The Zen Master answered a long time, at least 10 years. The student said, “Well I will work twice as hard.” The Zen master said, “Then it will take 20 years.” “No!” said the committed student, “I will work three times as hard.” “Well then,” said the Zen master, “it will take 30 years.”

Do you need to work at being spiritual? No. You already are spiritual. Do you need to work at being human? No. That’s just who you are.

The spiritual path doesn’t require us to get anything. It’s a process of opening to new dimensions of who we already are. It’s a process of awakening to our own truth. It’s a process of allowing ourselves to be authentic.

“It is not by your actions that you will be saved, but by your being.”
— Meister Eckhart

“People ask what must they become to be loving. The answer is ‘nothing.’ It is a process of letting go of what you thought you had become and allowing your true nature to float to the surface naturally.”
— Stephen Levine

A Note from the Universe

Every enlightened master knows that it’s not what you do that brings about a miracle, but that you do something, consistently, with an unwavering expectation that thy will shall be done.

Because when you do something, with intention, every day, almost anything, in the direction of your dreams, that’s all I’ll need to reach you, connect a few dots, and drop a few jaws.

We takin’ over,

The Universe

Myth
“Myths have their magic power because they cast on the screen of our imaginations the figures of the heavenly constellations, immense projections of our hope and capabilities.”

-Robert Heilbroner


Myths make us question: “What are the possibilities?” Instead of thinking of the practical and mundane, they open up to us areas of grandeur and limitlessness! Our imaginations are there to help us create, and we are capable of creating our own reality. So, why not dream big?

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The Hermit

Smooth your way through the day by being as respectable as time and circumstance require. Fit in, look and sound the part that you’ve been assigned, and get a lot done with very little or no resistance. In general, being respectable can be a good thing and serve you well, especially when dealing with new people or with those who don’t know you very well.
