Spiritual Unite: Is Reality An Illusion?

Every now and again you’ll hear someone say: It doesn’t matter, reality is just an illusion anyway. Those people are wrong  though it’s not that reality isn’t an illusion. It is an illusion. But this illusion matters. Everything Is Energy On the smallest level, everything is just energy.

MBG: How To Know If Your Essential Oils Have Expired (In 5 Seconds Or Less)

Essential oils are packed with some pretty amazing healing benefits—but alas, nothing lasts forever.

Just like the oils we cook with, essential oils do eventually “go bad.” While an expired oil won’t be dangerous to use per se, it will lose its potency and become just another good smell—or a not-so-great one.

Tetraktys: How to Connect with Nature – A Short Guide on Spirituality, Nature and Awareness

Nowadays, most people are aware that the natural world is more than the sum of its components. Nature embodies the sacred, the untouched creation and the “perfect” world that would be if mankind didn’t exist. Although a very non-humanistic view, it has become somewhat widespread in the modern world as people are feeling more and more that humanity is distancing itself from nature. Fortunately, it’s not always the case.

Patheos-Pagan: The Truth About Hereditary Witches

The other day, I saw someone’s twitter handle. ‘Fourth generation hereditary witch.’ Bullcrap, I thought.

We’d all like to think we’re special, and to some degree, we are. I never believe in lying about anything, but there are so many hereditary witches these days who have such high degrees and long lineages.

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

“The burden is equal to the horse’s strength.”
— The Talmud

What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?

If you make a list of the two and study them, you may discover they match.

Life needs us to bring our strengths to the world. To encourage us to do so, we have weaknesses that give rise to problems that require us to call on our strengths to solve them. Ingenious, don’t you think?

“Our weaknesses are divine gifts that when embraced will enable us to make our purposeful contribution to the whole, which is why we incarnated in the first place.”
— Andrew Schneider

“We acquire the strength we have overcome.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Relationships

“The long-term accommodation that protects marriage and other such relationships is… forgetfulness.”

-Alice Walker, You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down (1981)

“Forgetfulness” goes beyond forgiveness. First you forgive, then you forget. This is present-moment awareness in action! The past is history – it’s gone, and it can certainly be forgotten. As we grow and change, as our relationships grow and change, forgetfulness can be a welcome accommodation!

Patheos-Pagan: Finding Your Spiritual Path Later In Life

Here’s a question one person asked that I suspect applies to many people.
One of the things that drew me to your writing was that you described yourself as a Pagan who didn’t get serious until later on in your life. I am used to hearing people talk about being multiple decades into their practice because they started as children or teens.

Inner Journey: 

HOW DO YOU SHOW YOU CARE?

“Love is not only something you feel. It is something you do.”
— David Wilkerson

In her book, ‘No Less Than Greatness,’ Mary Manin Morrissey speaks of a research study that explored how family members communicate with each other. Apparently, the most frequently spoken words between husbands, wives, sisters and brothers were “What’s on?”and “Move.”

She goes on to say, “We all desire great relationships but often settle for just getting by. Many of us have stopped questioning the fact that we may know fictitious TV families more intimately than we do our own.”

The most powerful force in our lives is our ability to love. Indeed, it’s the most basic essence of who we are. How do you experience and express your love for the people in your life?

“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other…. The whole purpose of life is to live by love.”
— Thomas Merton

Patience

“How poor are they that have not patience!
What wound did ever heal but by degrees?”

-Shakespeare, Othello
Sometimes we need to just get out of our own way and let nature do its thing. The seasons know how to change. It does no good to try to “hurry things up” so we can fit in one more vacation or whatever! So many things in this world just take care of themselves. There is an organizing power to the universe. Shouldn’t we allow this power to work for us? All we have to do is be patient. Everything will work out the way that it is supposed to.

I met my spiritual teacher in Nepal on my 27th birthday. In the midst of a 30-day meditation retreat, I was one of five attendees granted the honor of meeting this lama.

How I wasn’t worthy of his attention. How he would sense my brokenness and send me off.

MNN: Heat wave sparks ‘fairy wind’ in Ireland

A heatwave sweeping through Ireland this week has not only pushed average temperatures well into the 80s, but also increased sightings of “fairy wind” across the country.

This weather phenomenon, more commonly known as a dust devil, occurs during dry conditions when warmer surface air rises quickly to form an updraft.

EarthSky News: What are the full moon names?

Some almanacs like to give each month a special full moon name. Other almanacs like to reference full moons relative to seasonal markers, as defined by equinoxes and solstices. Is one way better than the other? No. Both have their roots in folklore. Of course, both the monthly names and the seasonal names necessarily favor either the Northern or Southern Hemisphere

Patheos-Pagan: Ritual of Life-Passages

History is amoral: events occurred. But memory is moral: what we consciously remember is what our conscience remembers- Anne Michaels

Inner Journey: 

EXPERIENCE STILLNESS

“My greatest wealth is the deep stillness in which I strive and grow and win what the world cannot take from me with fire or sword.”
— Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

If our minds are always busy, they don’t get time to do basic maintenance – to sort, tidy up and take out the trash. If we don’t periodically clear out space in our minds, there’s no room for new ideas to take root.

Where do you find stillness each day and each week? Plan for quiet time, relaxation and stillness daily, even if it’s only for 5 or 10 minutes.

“For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe.”
— Larry Eisenberg

Thoughts

“When you rule your mind you rule your world. When you choose your thoughts you choose results.” -Imelda Shanklin

Our minds are so constantly busy that we often forget that we actually have a choice in the matter. We can choose our thoughts! And by choosing our thoughts, we are choosing our experiences and creating our futures. And we need to remember that our reactions are thoughts, also. Instead of letting our emotions ride on auto-pilot, we can choose to take a breath and take inventory rather than giving in to an impulsive reaction. In this way, our thoughts can lead us in a much more productive direction, one that creates solutions rather than problems.

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 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.”

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.

Alternative therapy can offer a breakthrough for people struggling depression. There is art therapy, animal therapy and storytelling therapy. There is an arm of therapy that is used to help people with depression that is often not talked about or perhaps never heard of–it’s called color psychology. Color psychology is the study of different hues and its impact on human behavior.

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!

Patheos-Pagan: Get Over Your Fear Of Religion

All some people seem to want is a vague and trite spirituality that makes them feel good and tells them everything’s going to be OK whether it really is or not. But if you want a deep spiritual…

A couple weeks ago I made a comment on a friend’s Facebook post about the differences between Christian religion and Pagan religion. In response, someone else (who I don’t know and therefore won’t name) said:

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

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?

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.

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

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!
