ThoughtCo: Sun Worship

At Litha, the summer solstice, the sun is at its highest point in the sky. Many ancient cultures marked this date as significant, and the concept of sun worship is one nearly as old as mankind itself. In societies that were primarily agricultural, and depended on the sun for life and sustenance, it is no surprise that the sun became deified.

Empaths are hyper-perceptive and naturally wired to feel the energies and emotions of others. Yet with practice and intention, empaths can choose to be observers as well.

It helped that it was a summer-like day in the middle of a Northeast winter, and that the small town where it was located was so unlike the busy suburbia we were used to.

Patheos-Pagan:  How to rest in a world that’s not at rest

There’s a reason why we call old wisdom ‘old.’ Because it’s been around. Because it has a way of surfacing, if buried, or circulating widely, if restrained.

‘If you’re tired, rest,’ old wisdom has it, stating the obvious, as all old wisdom does. If you’re tired, rest. Don’t quit. Just rest.

Inner Journey:

EXPLORE WITH QUESTIONS

“The word ‘question’ is derived from the Latin ‘quarrier’ (to seek) which is also the root of ‘quest.’ A creative life is a continued quest, and good questions can be very useful guides. Most useful are open-ended questions; they allow for fresh unanticipated answers to reveal themselves.”
— Source Unknown

Questions hold the power to draw out answers that surprise us. If we are on an inner journey to greater self-knowledge, we must seek to understand unfamiliar parts of ourselves. The most enlightening answers are released by our subconscious minds or by our intuition. Use questions frequently to go exploring.

Try these out:
• What qualities do you find most attractive in others? How do you exhibit those same qualities?
• What is your greatest fear? Why do you fear that?
• What message is your body trying to get through to you?

“If we would have new knowledge, we must get a whole world of new questions.”
— Susanne K. Langer

“You don’t want a million answers as much as you want a few forever questions.”
— Richard Bach

A Note from the Universe
Ever notice how when someone dreams of happiness, abundance, health, romance, or friendship, they never have to wonder if it’s in their best interest?

But when someone dreams of a specific house, employer, love interest, deadline, dollar amount, or diet fad, they often end up contradicting themselves?

Keep your “end results” general. Everything else is just a how.

To the big picture,

The Universe

Individuality
“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”

-Margaret Mead (1910-1978)

 
We are all One, and we are all individuals – we are each an individual expression of the Spirit that animates us. It is because of our differences, and our uniqueness, that we can help each other and learn from each other. We each have something to contribute – because we are each a part of the Whole. And yet, we are whole and complete within ourselves, and we have that in common with everyone else!

-Lissa Coffey

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess

Let intuition be your guide today and you won’t go too far wrong. If something doesn’t need to be done or delivered instantly, take your time and let events, situations, and people claim the time and attention they seem to want. Things want to sort themselves out for you, in the best ways. Don’t introduce complications. Be decisive when necessary but otherwise step up, too, and be pleasantly surprised.

Little Things: Cat’s Angel Message for September 19, 2019

Little Things: Cat’s Angel Message for September 19, 2019

September’s Theme:  Why are we here is a question that we often ask ourselves, and this month we will be exploring our purpose.


Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. – Robert Brault


919: Making your home a safe haven filled with loving, healing energy is essentially a form of service and our focus for today is in the creation of a peaceful and healthy living environment. This starts at home and the angels are asking us to create a peaceful realm that we can look forward to entering at the end of the day. Home is our sanctuary that provides a respite from outside stress for both you and your loved ones. Maybe it’s time to do some space clearing, make peace with a family member, make a comfort meal or even do a little fall cleaning. Remember that being of service starts with one person at a time. Little things matter and quite often make the biggest impact.


    • Call on Archangel Raguel today to give you a boost of energy and to help bring order to your thoughts. He empowers the underdog and also acts as a motivational coach when we feel down on ourselves and can help you to reach your full potential. His other area of expertise lies in resolving arguments.

 

  • The Ascended Master Saint Germain provides courage and direction as we navigate life’s ups and downs. He teaches us how to clear the way and free our minds from worry so that we can work on more important things. while his “big brother” energy surrounds us with loving protection. He can also help us when dealing with those well meaning people who try to push us away from our path.

 

 

  • The Hindu god Ganesh can help to remove obstacles from our path. He promotes the wisdom needed to navigate what life hands us so that abundance can find us. Ganesh teaches us that our barriers are quite often self imposed. He tells us “Never be afraid to move forward or to let go of what no longer serves you or brings you joy.” While doing this may seem difficult or even impossible you effort will produce beneficial cleansing and healing.”

 

 


Our Sacred Stones for today include:

  • Blue Quartz helps us to understand our spiritual nature, it also brings hope as it calms the mind and helps us to become more self-reliant. Together these things promote happiness and feelings of well being.
  • Rose Quartz today to bring inner peace and harmony. The energy of this stone is very soothing and can help calm frazzled nerves. It helps to promote the softer, move loving view that we need to embrace gratitude, it soothes and clears the emotions and fills us with loving compassion. It works with the heart chakra to gently wash away negative feelings that we harbor against ourselves and lifts the emotions to promote joy and peace. It opens our heart and shows us the love in relationships and situations, which helps us find a balancing point Use this gentle stone to shower yourself with loving care and to send healing to those little places that most need it.
  • Blue Lace Agate helps us to create and maintain balance during times of stress. It helps us to find our voice when indecision is a factor, allowing us to freely express thoughts and feelings in a peaceful manner.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

A Safe Place: Cat’s Angel Message for September 19, 2017

Autumn Angel

A Safe Place: Cat’s Angel Message for September 19, 2017  

September’s Theme:  Life Purpose.  Sometimes we have a clear vision of what that is and sometimes we don’t. Many of us fall into the second category and that’s OK!  Remember that everything you do has an impact on your world and the people in it and around you. Life Purpose can be very simple, like making “tiny miracles” happen for others or even making your own life or the life of a loved one better.  Sometimes the small things are the best!

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. ~ Maya Angelou

919: We will carry over our message on service to ourselves and loved ones.  Our focus for today is in the creation of peaceful and healthy living. This starts at home and the angels are asking us to create a peaceful realm that we can look forward to coming home to. Home is our sanctuary and provides a respite from outside stress. Maybe it’s time to do some space clearing, make peace with a family member, make a comfort meal or even do a little fall cleaning. By keeping our homes a place of comfort and healing it creates a positive atmosphere that will benefit you and your loved ones.

The Hindu god Ganesh helps to promote peace and harmony in the home and removes any obstacles that are keeping your home from being the sanctuary it can be. The Roman goddess of hearth and home Vesta helps us to fill our homes with warmth and love, and Archangel Raguel helps us to find peaceful solutions to any disputes or arguments that interrupt the harmony of our home. Our Sacred Stones for today are Blue Quartz which brings health and happiness and Rose Quartz to fill your space with love .

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
