Spirituality & Health: How to Invite Wild Sacred Nature into Your World

You’d be hard pressed to find a problem that cannot be helped by spending time in nature. Studies tell us that even pictures of nature can help us feel calm. Whether we go out to meet nature, or bring nature inside to brighten our rooms, we can infuse the wild sacred beauty of nature into our experience of life.

MBG: To Anthony Bourdain, With Gratitude

To Anthony Bourdain:
It’s been a rough week, to say the least. I have a lot of questions still—questions without easy or even possible answers—but mostly, I just want to say thank you.
The distinct power of stories—for good, for evil—was something you understood intrinsically.

The Tetraktys: Finding Yourself – How to Free Yourself From Social Anxiety

ere’s a new article, this time about finding yourself and getting rid of social anxiety. I had the idea for this article because I, myself, am writing this one from Oaxaca, Mexico and it made me think about what travelling implies when it comes to social anxiety, or anxiety in general

Elephant Journal: June 11-18 Energy Forecast: Have courage & Manifest whatever you Desire

Currently, we are basking in the energy of zodiac sign Gemini, as the sun is temporarily resting in that sign.
The moon will be joining the sun and resting there from June 12th to 13th. Never is division and polarity more prominent than when the sun and moon cozy up and radiate outward from Gemini’s constellation.

MNN:  Our brains need silence to make sense of things

The mind may seem to thrive on stimuli — the honking horns, the pixels percolating on this screen at this very moment, or even the way the keyboard feels under your fingers at any given time of day.

But, in fact, it may be what lies between — the time between honks

Patheos-Pagan: Exploring Daily Practice

A few years ago I started going to the gym on a regular basis. I would listen to music on my headphones (earbuds, whatever) and walk on the treadmill while my daughter was in karate class. I’ve never been an athletic person and running only happens if I’m being chased, but there was an unexpected side effect from my little workout routine. I developed a new daily practice of listening to my spiritual allies.

Inner Journey: Capture your inspiration!

“Ideas can come from anywhere and at any time. The problem with making mental notes is that the ink fades very rapidly.”
— Rolf Smith

Insights and inspiration come to us for a reason. Don’t let them disappear on you!

When a great idea pops into your mind, write it down and capture it. Keep a mini-journal or piece of paper with you at all times.

Reflect on your insights. How might you anchor this great idea so it enhances your life?

“Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it that makes a difference.”
— Nolan Bushnell

A Note from the Universe

Think that it’s fun,  that you’re guided, and that all is well; that there’s time, that life is easy, and that the best has yet to come.

Think that the reasons that elude you will one day catch up, that the lessons that have stumped you will one day bring joy, and that the sorrows that have crippled you will soon give you wings.

Think that you’re important, that you cannot fail, and that happiness always returns.

And think that you’re beautiful.

I do,

Humor

“Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility.”  -James Thurber (1894-1961) US humorist, illustrator

Do you remember the TV show “My World and Welcome to It?” It starred William Windom as James Thurber. This was many years ago, so it may be that he played a James Thurber “type,” (I was very young and can’t remember the details. 😉 I loved that show! And I loved how the lesson was that there was always something to laugh at, some funny way of looking at something that we might not have thought of. Sometimes when we’re going through something really awful or embarrassing, we’ll look at one another and say: “Someday we’ll look back on this and laugh.” And doesn’t that happen! Some of our funniest moments come out of our most human foibles. We are funny people, and we can enjoy ourselves.

A Bountiful Moment

The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything. ~Theodore Roosevelt

Daily Thought

Looking at mistakes made as growth will change the direction of your actions and emotions. It allows the challenge to become part of what you need to learn within the journey. Sometimes you are not able to achieve the goal you set on the first try, all that means is you need change the way you address it. A mistake never really means defeat until you give up.

Daily Practice

Take another look at what you view as a mistake made and reframe it as something positive. What did you learn or get from the path taken and mistake made? Did it make you stronger, more committed, or have you given up because you felt defeated? Look again at what you were trying to accomplish and change direction to reach the same goal by acting in a different way?There is no such thing as a mistake when you are trying

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Inner Journey

BELIEVE IN YOUR OWN SUCCESS

“What you believe yourself to be, you are.”
— Claude M. Bristol

Do you believe, deep down inside of you, that you can succeed in what you want to do?

Beliefs are strong, and they have the power to attract what is believed to us. If we doubt our ability to succeed, if we in fact believe we WON’T succeed, then sure enough, that�s what will happen.

What do you believe about yourself? You have the power to change your beliefs, and that will change your outcome. Set goals you believe you can accomplish. Your beliefs will shape your actions. As you achieve these goals, you’ll begin to believe you are capable of succeeding and of doing even more.

“It is better to believe than to disbelieve; in so doing you bring everything to the realm of possibility.”
— Albert Einstein

“Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.”
— Dr. David Schwartz

A Note from the Universe

Aha! Do you know what your thoughts did last week?!

They became the things and events of this week. The things you thought would be difficult became difficult; easy became easy; boring became boring; and fun became fun. Where you thought there might be surprises, you were surprised. And where you thought there might be land mines, there were land mines.

Bravo! You can add this week to the list of your most creative accomplishments.

Now, can you guess what your thoughts this week are going to do?

You are awesome,

Today’s Recipe: Golden Turmeric Cauliflower and Quinoa Bowls

Trendy avocados are not only a tasty fruit, but provide good plant-based fat, which is low in saturated and trans fats. And a healthy diet low in saturated and trans fats may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Yet despite their increasing popularity, one in two Canadians still don’t know how to incorporate avocados into their meals and recipes, according to a recent survey. But it�s easier than you think to add good fats into your balanced diet. There are now many products made with avocado oil that make it even easier to use in your favourite recipes, like new Becel with Avocado Oil margarine. It is made with the goodness of avocado oil and perfectly balanced with the great taste of margarine.

Desire

“Heaven always favors good desires.” -Cervantes (Don Quixote)

What makes a “good” desire? All of our desires are good! We have our desires for a reason, and we wouldn’t have them if we were not capable of fulfilling them. Be like Don Quixote, and “follow that star!” Our desires lead us to our destiny.

Birds and Blooms: 6 ways to Attract More Cardinals

Setting out a bird feeder filled with black oil sunflower seeds is a surefire way to attract northern cardinals but ambitious gardeners shouldn�t stop there, because the right plants bring in these ruby red beauties and other songbirds, too. The key is to focus on the trifecta of providing food, cover and places to raise young, says Gary Ritchison, an ornithologist at Eastern Kentucky University and writer of the bird guide Northern Cardinal.

Humble and Reasonable Confidence: Cat’s Angel Message for February 7, 2018 

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Humble and Reasonable Confidence: Cat’s Angel Message for February 7, 2018  

February’s Theme:  Trusting in the “unseen” and  believing in yourself puts you on the path to manifesting your dreams and goals.
Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities.
Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers
you cannot be successful or happy.
 Norman Vincent Peale
27: Our daily readings focus quite often on faith. Faith isn’t inherent to just one religion it encompasses them all, including spirituality. While we can have faith in many things one of the most important is faith in ourselves. Our personal faith brings out our intuition and helps us to have a better understanding of self. Remember that the Universe and the angels are here to helps us but we must be willing to do our part. This is where faith in yourself comes into play and the stronger your faith the more you can create. Today the Universe is asking us to surround ourselves with faith and remain open to the guidance and messages that you receive. Allow yourself to move forward with grace and an optimistic outlook!
Archangel Sandalphon delivers our prayers and requests to the Divine and the Spiritual Helpers best suited to help us achieve our dreams and goals. The Ascended Masters like Jesus and Moses can teach us how to embrace our faith more fully and the Hindu God Ganesh helps to remove the obstacles in our path and brings abundance and harmony with those around us.
Our Sacred Stones for the day are:
Blue Lace Agate which helps us to create and maintain balance during times of stress.
Green Calcite creates harmony and brings positive flow into your life.
Bright blessings for a magickal day!

 Protect Your Flame: Cat’s Angel Message for December 27 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out.

Katherine Dunham

1227:  As we enter the final days of days of December the angels are asking us to remain strong and steady in our faith, both in ourselves and in the Universe.  Remember that faith isn’t inherent to just religious paths, it also includes spirituality. There has been a lot of upset and turmoil in the world recently which is why the angels want us to know that we are cared for. Do your best to stay focused on your dreams and desires and  don’t let fear and uncertainty get you down. A good bit of news is that Mercury went direct back on December 22 and we aren’t dealing with right now. Ask for guidance and pay attention to the clues you receive. Your intuition will serve you well  today as well. If it feels right use that information to move forward to help meet your goals.

We will keep things simple today so just call the Universe or your favorite angel or ascended master today to assist with any issues of faith you may have. Our Sacred  Stones are Red Jasper to promote new ideas or Ruby to aid with decisions.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!

KODAK Digital Still Camera

The Power of Being Spiritual: Cat’s Angel Message for December 17 , 2017   

December’s Theme:  Pay close attention to recurring thoughts and ideas. These messages and clues will assist you to make improvements in your life.

We can no more do without spirituality than we can do without food, shelter, or clothing.

Ernest Holmes

1217:  Today the Universe is asking us to embrace and acknowledge our own spirituality. It’s our spirituality that essentially helps us to navigate our life path and clarifies our life purpose and  helps us to surround ourselves with optimistic and positive energy even when things get rough. It’s also through our own spirituality that our power as a creator comes into play. By believing in ourselves we can  generate new opportunities for prosperity and abundance on all levels. Our strength and confidence helps us to see the blessings headed our way as well as the ones that currently surround us. This is a good day to simply say thank you to the Universe, it’s helpers and to yourself for being the amazing light-being that you are!

Archangel Jophiel helps us to slow down and appreciate our lives and what we have created for ourselves. The Ascended Master Buddha teaches us that spirituality is path to inner peace and the Egyptian goddess Hathor helps us to let our inner light shine and bring beauty into our world. Our Sacred Stone for today is Agate. This humble stone helps by raising our consciousness and awareness of our life. It promotes spiritual growth and inner strength by helping us to the most of our life experiences.

Bright blessings for a magickal day!
