Pioneer Thinking: Daises – Flowers That Heal

A daisies bouquet is a wonderful gift because there are only positive meanings attached to these flowers. However, their beauty does not stop at their appearance nor does it do so at their meanings. They have both a legend to support them, and a belief which holds them as a kind of prophets, able to reveal one’s feelings.

Inner Journey: CREATE HAPPINESS RIGHT NOW

“It is our basic right to be a happy person, happy family, and eventually a happy world. That should be our goal.”
— Dalai Lama

Little adjustments to our attitude and approach each day can create a major difference in our appreciation of life. On the surface, nothing changes. At the same time, absolutely everything does.

Use your awareness or your imagination to bring happiness to this moment. Find something to appreciate. Do this as often as you remember to do so, and your world will transform.

” … we can no longer afford to throw away even one ‘unimportant’ day by not noticing the wonder of it all. We have to be willing to discover and then appreciate the authentic moments of happiness available to all of us every day.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

A Note from the Universe

Some claim not to know and not to see…

But that there are…

Birds who sing at every hour of the day for no other reason than to be heard…

Creatures of the deep who flip and twirl just for the fun of it…

Furry friends who love just as dearly as they are loved, and…

Flowers so exquisite, pleasing human eyes could be their only explanation…

… must surely prove that you’re living in the most magical fairytale ever imagined.

Self
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”

-Socrates (469-399 BC)


We know that there is so much more to life than the distractions of everyday living. That’s why we practice our spiritual rituals. That’s why we read books, and meditate, and pray. That’s why we strive to learn and to grow. Life is so much more full and satisfying when we look within.

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Instinct and impulsive action will cause more trouble than they can solve today, so spend more time reasoning things out and being careful about what you say and do. Asking questions is a good idea. It will get you information you need, and show how thorough, bright, and capable you are. It might take a bit longer, but it will save time and effort in the end.

MBG: How To Help Your Kids Cope With Back-To-School Anxiety

It is 8:25 a.m. on a Wednesday morning in July. I leisurely stroke Cam’s tan face and hair that feels thick with leftover sunblock. “Time to get up, sweetie. You have camp.” I love my summer days at the beach, late family nights listening to audiobooks, and road trips to Maine and beyond. My husband and I whisper about how nice the summer has been, hoping not to jinx it. The ease of summer is so much healthier—sports-free weekends, no homework, and unstructured time to just be a family. To be calm, bored even.

MNN: Denmark’s hygge isn’t the only snuggly tradition in the world

Hygge is a warm and cozy concept that’s difficult to define. You’ll know it when you feel it and you typically feel it — at least in Danish culture — when the calendar turns to the cold, solitude-filled days of wintertime.

It’s a feeling and way of life that centers around coziness and companionship, including family and warm food as a buffer against loneliness, darkness and the cold.

Patheos-Pagan: Everyone Loves a Witch Store in October

Everybody wants my job, or so I laughingly say. Customers check out with a wistful look, saying “It must be so great working here!” It is, and I am very happy. I manage a witch shop in Asheville, North Carolina. Or to cushion the shock for some people, I say it’s a “metaphysical book store.” It is both that, and so much more. It’s a community center, a hub, a respite, a place to feel empowered.

Inner Journey:

BELIEVE IN MAGIC!

“…for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic.”
— Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews

“Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world then calls the state we were in a delusion or infatuation … But we merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magicwhen the morning came. …In truth, we can go to the moon and retain its magic for a lifetime.”
— Marianne Williamson

“We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests … What a pleasure to be wrong. Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure… not only are they here-and-now, they’re all that ever lived on earth! Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we’ve never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish.Intuition whispers true: We’re not dust, we’re magic!”
— Richard Bach

Nature

“Nothing in nature is isolated. Nothing is without reference to something else. Nothing achieves meaning apart from that which neighbors it.”

-Goethe (1749-1832)

Everything we have, everything we see, everything we are, has its roots in nature. We are all made up of the same basic materials! Look at your desk, the paper, wood and wicker that come from the trees, which grow from the earth. We feel disassociated from nature when we work in an office, and yet we can never get away from it. The water that runs through the rivers, and through our taps, and through our bodies, is all a part of nature. We are connected to the planet, and to each other, in ways seen and unseen

-Lissa Coffey
