As the vibration of the universe is rising, it is fuelling the spiritual awakening of more and more people.

MBG: How To Teach Kids To Love Nature In A Tech-Obsessed World
We know that nature serves as a calming force when we’re stressed or anxious, and its effects on children may be even more profound.
“Nature has the power to make children happier, healthier, and smarter,” Sarah Milligan-Toffler, executive director of the Children & Nature Network, explained during the Biophilic Leadership Summit, a gathering of dozens of thought leaders in nature-inspired design held this April.
A Bountiful Moment
If you know what you want you can find a way to get it. Napoleon Hill
Daily Thought: When you are setting goals make sure you are clear and specific in what you are looking to achieve. By stating that you want to be happy, have more money, be independent are all illusive general goals. Define and be specific about what those general terms mean. Will you be happy if you enter into a healthy relationship? If you make an additional $10,000? Or if you can buy a car? If you make your intentions clear and specific you will achieve them.
Daily Practice: Think of the goals you have set to achieve. Do they need to be made clearer? Think of every single detail about the end goal. Colors, shapes, how you would interact with the goal. What does your end goal look like? The more you can see what you are trying to achieve the better ability your mind has to develop and act on ways to create it. Don’t be afraid to dream big and never give up!
Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Elephant Journal: The Sensitive Folks’ Guide to Saturn & Pluto Retrograde
The word “hacking” is popular these days, so consider this a hack for sensitive people dealing with where the Earth is situated relative to Saturn and Pluto.
Note: to be clear, it’s not that the position of the Earth “causes” anything, or that these planets and their positions rain a cascade of “energy” down on us. It’s that those who study astrology can read where they are (relative to each other, because that is key to a retrograde) and what that means according to countless years of people witnessing patterns in human development

Patheos-Pagan: When The Moon Is Not Creative
I have as yet to encounter a discourse about the Moon card in the Tarot that will not start with ‘creativity’ as one of the moon’s primary ‘meanings’.
I have a problem with this, especially when, in dynamic reading consultations that are not informed by the ‘little white book’, the Moon hardly ever points to a type of creativity that’s also constrained, and hence useful.
FEELING TRAPPED? SLOW DOWN!
“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.”
— Natalie Goldberg
Feeling trapped in some way? Give yourself space. Space to do nothing but breathe. To intentionally relax those tight muscles. To just for a few precious minutes, let it all go.
The world will keep turning if you tune out for a short while. And your world will begin to recover its balance.
“It’s important to be heroic, ambitious, productive, efficient, creative, and progressive, but these qualities don’t necessarily nurture soul. The soul has different concerns, of equal value: downtime for reflection, conversation, and reverie; beauty that is captivating and pleasuring; relatedness to the environs and to people; and any animal’s rhythm of rest and activity.”
— Thomas Moore
A Note from the Universe
Always see work as play and play as important, and soon you won’t know the difference between them.

“Path presupposes distance;
If he be near, thou needest no path at all.
Verily, it makes one smile
To hear of a fish in water needing a drink.”
We’re all on this spiritual path, right? And where is it leading to?
Back to our Selves! Somewhere on our journey we’ll realize that we don’t have to go anywhere or do anything to find God. God is not hiding from us! The Divine Presence is right here, where we are. Now and always.
