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.

ThoughtCo: Deities of the Hunt

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:

MBG: This Is The Day To Check In On Your Relationship, According To Astrology 

On Monday, Venus and Jupiter will conspire to make us more gullible.
People might talk a good game, but can they back up their words with action? That’s questionable this Monday, April 15, when charming Venus in Pisces squares optimistic Jupiter. While both planets have a strict “no negative vibes” policy, refusing to take off the rose-colored glasses

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

Elephant Journal: This is the Soulmate we Have to Let Go Of.

I recognize soul contracts. I spot soulmates in my life almost immediately. I work tirelessly with people who are grieving the end of a relationship with a soulmate, not understanding why they came into their lives at all if they weren’t meant to be together, and unable to accept that the contract is complete and it’s simply time to let it go

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.

Thought For The Day: Nov. 28, 2018 “What is Beauty?”

Happy Wednesday,

Everyone’s idea of “beauty” is different. Today we’re not talking about physical beauty, it’s more like the road you travel as you create the life you want. Life can be exciting or dull, clean or messy, easy or difficult, magical or mundane. The truth is that life is a combination of all of these things. As we travel life’s road remember that our experiences , good or bad, help to shape our perception of  life’s beauty. We must often walk through fire to find our “paradise.”

Transformation Time: Cat’s Angel Message for November 16, 2018 

daily Angel Message sms

Transformation Time: Cat’s Angel Message for November 16, 2018 

November’s Theme: Our goal this month lies in watching our thoughts.  Remember that POSITIVE opens and draws and NEGATIVE closes and blocks. Stay focused on what you want and not what you fear.


The power of the Wizard lives within me. I call upon its magic at will – transforming Fear into Love. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


1116:  We often hear that our thoughts create reality. This is very true and to make this happen we must use our inner magic which includes how we choose to perceive things. By focusing on the good things in our lives  the happier we tend to be. Today the Universe is reminding us that when we stay positive and keep our expectations high we discover that we are far better off than we realized. The Universe and it’s helpers make sure that we have what we need and when we combine this with our willingness to help ourselves we find that we have the power to manifest a steady flow of material supply. Step into YOUR power as a creator today and don’t forget to offer thanks for what you have and for the blessings headed your way!


The angel Gamaliel brings us gifts, blessings and abundance, while Archangel Jophiel helps us to see the wonderful things that we already have and promotes gratitude. The Hindu god Ganesh helps to remove obstacles from our path including the ones we have created for ourselves and the Ascended Master Jesus teaches us that anything is possible including miracles.


Try the following Sacred Stones to bring your gratitude forward: Rose Quartz helps us to show and embrace universal love, Tiger’s Eye teaches us the difference between wishful thinking and what you really need,  and Pink Sapphire draws the things we need into our lives that will aid our personal evolution.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!

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. In 2014 and 2015 I wrote a series of rituals for those working alone on the Wheel of the Year. Every year they’re near the top of the list of most popular posts – here’s the Mabon ritual.

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

 The Subject Of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for June 24, 2018

daily Angel Message sms

 The Subject Of Life: Cat’s Angel Message for June 24, 2018 

 June Theme: Balancing our need/desire for earthly materials (possessions, money etc) with focus and faith while staying grounded and present.


What’s the subject of life – to get rich? All of those fellows out there getting rich could be dancing around the real subject of life. – Paul A. Volcker


624: Everyday we are blessed with wonderful things aka “tiny miracles”. It doesn’t have to be grand or over the top to be a miracle and often it’s the small, everyday ones that mean the most. The universe is always working behind the scenes to help us out. It’s part of  human nature to want more, however in reality we have what we need. Our vision of true “wealth” lies in our perception of self.  If we feel sorry for ourselves our energy takes a nosedive . However, if we hold onto our optimism and look for our “One Good Thing” then the tiny miracles are brought into crystal clear focus. Today, the Universe is reminding us that everyday life and it’s many blessings. Hold these tiny miracles close to your heart so that you draw upon them when the need arises.


Archangel Raziel assists us in all forms of manifestation. This includes our ‘Tiny Miracles” which he helps bring forward into the light. The Ascended Master Babaji teaches us that by detaching ourselves from the lure of material things we are able to draw strength from life’s simple pleasures and the Hindu Goddess Kali who shows us how to get out of our own way so that we can appreciate life’s true blessings. She tells us “Do not allow yourself to become bogged down in what you perceive as lack. You are far wealthier than you realize and by getting out of your own way you will see the truth in this.”


Find strength today by using Turquoise, it helps to relieve us of our own self sabotage and the urge to play the martyr when we feel things aren’t going our way and Larimar which activates our creative thinking and helps us to go with the flow.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
