To meet it — nameless as it is —
Without celestial Mail —
Audacious as without a Knock
To walk within the Veil.”

Spirit Library: Completion & New Beginnings
Kate Spreckley

The cycles of nature introduce an awareness of change and reflects how transformation is a necessary requirement for all of life. All of nature complies and engages with these cycles upholding the law of balance within the universe. Balance is an integral part of life and in these incredible times, both our personal and collective attitudes and actions must change to ensure humanity’s survival on this planet. As such we are required to re-establish and reconnect with the cycles of nature and to engage consciously with the transformational process we are currently undergoing.

Perseverance“Perseverance is failing nineteen times and succeeding the twentieth.”
-Julie Andrews
We learn perseverance from an early age. When we first start to walk, we need to make several attempts before we finally get up on our feet and go somewhere. We’re met with the encouragement and support of our loved ones, but the real reward is in the freedom of being mobile. When we persevere, and reach our goal, we see that the effort we put in was worth it.

Your instincts may be heightened and a bit off today, and this could lead you to make some wrong decisions or assumptions. Then, you run the risk of pouncing on these assumptions and acting out of a bad impulse. Keep your emotions under control and back away from impulsive actions of any kind. Today they are traps that lead to embarrassment at best, and harm at worst.

Spirit Library: Surrender Into The Flow
Kate Spreckley


The Equinox creates a potent and significant time with the incoming energies initiating a period of death and rebirth. This is a time of rapid transformation, and as such it is important that we are flexible and ready for change. We cannot predict how change will unfold but we can move with the changes and manage ourselves through the process by staying grounded and present to what is occurring in the moment.

Why Consecrate?
In many modern Pagan traditions, magical tools are consecrated before use. This achieves a couple of things — one, it purifies the item before it is used to interact with the Divine. Secondly, it removes any negative energies from the tool. This is particularly handy if you aren’t sure of a tool’s past history or who owned it before it came to you.

Imagine standing at the edge of a forest, and that you want to reach the other side.

Yeah, every possible direction, because this is how things are in a forest.

“Smoke hangs like haze over harvested fields,
The gold of stubble, the brown of turned earth
And you walk under the red light of fall
The scent of fallen apples, the dust of threshed grain
The sharp, gentle chill of fall.
Here as we move into the shadows of autumn
The night that brings the morning of spring
Come to us, Lord of Harvest
Teach us to be thankful for the gifts you bring us …”

____________________

“The tale of Mabon of Modron, the Welsh God, (the “great son of the great mother”), also known as the Son of Light, the Young Son, or Divine Youth, is celebrated. The Equinox is also the birth of Mabon, from his mother Modron, the Guardian of the Outerworld, the Healer, the Protector, the Earth. Mabon was taken after he is a mere three nights old (some variations of the legend say he is taken after three years). Through the wisdom of the living animals — the Stag, Blackbird, Owl, Eagle and Salmon — Mabon is freed from his mysterious captivity. All the while Mabon had rested within his mother’s womb; a place of nurturing and challenge. With strength and lessons gained within the magickal Outerworld (Modron’s womb), Mabon is soon reborn as his mother’s Champion, the Son of Light, wielding the strength and wisdom acquired during his captivity.”

DO YOU GIVE TO GET?

“I have sensed a growing discontent amongst many who are on their spiritual path. A common theme appears to be — ‘I have been serving God for so long and have given up so much and it has been such a struggle — when am I going to get my reward?’”
— Wendy Munroe

It’s interesting to become aware of how we participate in the dynamic exchange of giving and receiving. When we give, do we do so whole-heartedly? Or do we do so with the ulterior motive of wanting something in return?

It’s not wise to be always looking for a deal. The universe never short-changes us. We can afford to be generous. When something of value is given, something of value must be returned.

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

Spirit Library: Full Attention is Demanded (a message from Kate Spreckley)

We are living in a phenomenal time where our full attention is being demanded as the incoming energies work to bring about something totally new and unprecedented within ourselves and our world. The individual shifts and changes occurring now are stoking the fires of our collective transformation awakening us all to a new vision of a new world. We are being pushed beyond what has previously been known and as the old continues to collapse a new and fertile landscape will be revealed.

Inner Journey:

FORGIVENESS BRINGS JOY

“The greatest evil that can befall man is that he should come to think ill of himself.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Do you feel worthy of having joy? Do you feel you deserve it?

The first step to activating our inner joy is to eliminate the blocks to it. We can start by truly forgiving ourselves and all others. Forgiveness calls for a shift in our perception. It is easier to forgive ourselves and others when we really understand that each of us has always done the very best we knew to do at that time.

“If we don’t forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and others for the wounds they have inflicted upon us, we end up crippled with guilt. And the soul cannot grow under a blanket of guilt, because guilt is isolating, while growth is a gradual process of reconnection to ourselves, to other people, and to a larger whole.”
— Joan Borysenko

What do you give someone who already has it all, forever and ever?

Did you just say, “How about the fleeting illusion they don’t have it all, to create a sense of adventure, to fill their days with drama, and to impose upon them the almost unbearable lightness of being that all angels feel when dancing in time and space… dude”?

Or was that “dude” actually a “duh”?

Inner Journey:

TAKE TIME TO BE STILL

“Work is not always required … there is such a thing as sacred idleness, the cultivation of which is now fearfully neglected.”
— George MacDonald

When was the last time you did absolutely nothing?

Our world is so addicted to productivity that we feel guilty if we’re not doing something. But taking time daily to be still and inactive opens us to the spacious present. It nurtures and restores balance. Give yourself a regular gift of inactivity.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”
— Sir J. Lubbock

We are moving through a seemingly chaotic evolutionary process where the old structures, which contained humanity’s consciousness for thousands of years, are being broken down and dissolved. While these structures collapse our grip on the past loosens allowing for a new paradigm, a new reality, to emerge from within. This new reality is brought forth through the integration of our heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul.

Inner Journey: WHY? WHY? WHY?

“As long as one keeps searching, the answers come.”
— Joan Baez

Asking ourselves ‘why?’ helps us delve deeply into our main motives — why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, ‘Why am I…?’ Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else….”
— Archibald Alexander

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.”

“We seldom stop to think how many people’s lives are entwined with our own. It is a form of selfishness to imagine that every individual can operate on his own or can pull out of the general stream and not be missed.”

-Ivy Baker Priest


This whole world functions in such a way that we need to rely on each other. We can’t go through this life alone – we’re all connected. We each have something to contribute to the big picture. It’s important to do our part, to be reliable and to know that we can rely on those around us.

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.

Spirit Library: Increasing Intensity (a message from Kate Spreckley)

Collectively we are all in the throes of a period of destruction and reconstruction. It is an intense time of rapid processing, purification, and healing where expansion, growth, learning, and awakenings are becoming more and more pronounced. We are learning to fully engage with our soul and to live life through our intuitive self. As a result, all that must be relinquished is being revealed offering us the opportunity to heal and release the deep and difficult wounds of the past

EarthSky News: Cassiopeia The Queen Ascends In September

Any late summer evening, and throughout northern autumn, Cassiopeia the Queen can be found ascending in the northeast after nightfall. The shape of this constellation makes Cassiopeia’s stars very noticeable. Cassiopeia looks like the letter W (or M). Look for the Queen starting at nightfall every September. She’ll be higher up in the northeast as autumn unfolds. For those in the northern U.S. and Canada, Cassiopeia is circumpolar, above the horizon all night long.

Inner Journey: MAKING A DIFFERENCE

“The spiritual life is a call to action. But it is a call to … action without any selfish attachment to the results.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference — we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life. While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.

Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego’s need to feel worthy? If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do by making some kind of impact on life.

Soul doesn’t need proof that it’s worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected. Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego’s need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully. And by doing that, we WILL make a difference!

“A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having.”
— Alice Mary Hilton

Reliability
“In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.”

-Flora Edwards


Reliability means the ability to be relied upon. When we’re talking about appliances, that’s easy to understand. Flip the switch and if it does what it’s supposed to do, it’s reliable. With people it’s not that different. To be reliable means that we do what we say we’re going to do. Our words carry weight because we have proven through our past actions and behaviors that people can count on us.

Spirit Library: Be Drawn into Deeper Connection with Your Soul ( a message from Kate Spreckley)

We stand amid two realities, one that is destabilizing and dissolving and one that is slowly coming into form. Our purpose now is to release ourselves from the old and allow the forms and structures of our past to fall away and dissolve. As we do so the new emerges and its form begins to take shape. The longer we remain tied to the past the longer it takes for the new to materialize

Inner Journey:

NOTHING NEEDS TO BE FIXED

“If you are ready to accept all which you find in yourself, you will be able to move through everything with deep sensitivity, awareness, love and understanding.”
— Gerd Ziegler

As we understand it, the spiritual journey is not about becoming perfect. It’s about acceptance, releasing judgment, and embracing everything in wholeness.

This is a great challenge for our personality. We’ve grown up comparing ourselves to others, always judging how we’re better and worse than those around us. And many of us are very good at finding fault with ourselves.

If we release judgment, then nothing needs to be fixed — including you. Explore inviting your soul to help you accept all that is and experience a whole new way of living.

“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.”
— Julia Cameron

Honesty
“No legacy is so rich as honesty.”

  • William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

  • Being called honest is a compliment. And it feels good to hear that someone appreciates that about us. It’s because we value honesty, it’s important to us. We like to be dealt with fairly and honestly. Honesty engenders trust, which builds strong relationships.
