Daily Good: When Crafts Become Activism

“Sarah Corbett never dreamed a cross-stitched teddy bear could change her life and how she approached her career. But looking back, she realizes that thats when it all started.
Corbett, a professional campaigner for causes and charities, was preparing to board a train from London to Glasgow to give yet another workshop on training people as activists.But she was exhausted, stressed, and burning out. With a five-hour journey ahead of her, she couldnt work because it made her travel sick. Feeling a hankering to do something creative, she picked up the tiny cross-stitch kit. As she took her seat and began to work, she immediately noticed something….”

Elephant Journal: How we can use our Emotional Guiding System to set Goals & Intentions.

Two years ago, on New Year’s Day, I was overwhelmed at the thought of setting goals.
It’s not that I didn’t know how, I simply wasn’t in the right head space. Letting the pendulum swing the other way, I toyed with the idea of not having goals for the upcoming year. That didn’t work either—it made me anxious. Clearly, I had to find a middle-of-the-road option.

That’s basically how the idea of choosing a theme rather than setting a goal came to me.

MNN: It takes this dragonfly 3 generations to complete its annual, 1,000-mile migration

When it comes to the world’s greatest animal migrations, the movement of millions of wildebeest over vast swaths of savannah probably comes to mind. Or perhaps it’s the thousands of miles flown every year by Arctic terns as they move from pole to pole. Or maybe an image of a breeching humpback surfaces in your imagination, as the whales swim from feeding grounds to calving grounds along coastlines.

EarthSky News: Achernar marks the end of the River

The chart above is almost just like yesterday’s chart. But we’ve changed our observing location. Normally, our charts are set for the geographical center of the continental U.S. – say, the latitude of Wichita, Kansas (about 37o north latitude). The chart above is set to the extreme southern U.S. or similar latitudes around the world

Patheos-Pagan: The Toxicity of Crystals and Ways to Practice Real Stone Spirit Magick

The use of crystals for healing, abundance and other energetic practices continues to grow in mainstream popularity. There’s so much toxicity in this shallow approach to working with stones, from the deplorable ways they are mined to the dangers of blind faith in their healing power. Stone spirit magick works, but we need to know how to harness the power of these treasures, so I’ve added a few tips because ranting without offering solutions is also toxic.

Inner Journey:

GO FOR PASSION!

“There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.”
— Frederico Fellini
How do you ration your passion?

In what situations have you experienced your life to the fullest? Do you live your passion as fully as you can? How do you limit your experience of passion?

Passion emerges when your essence expresses itself. How do you stop yourself from fully expressing who you are?

“Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark.”
— Henri Frederic Amiel

“We could hardly wait to get up in the morning.”
— Wilbur Wright

Wisdom

“It is easier to be wise for others than for oneself.”

-La Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)
This is so true! Don’t we all give better advice than we take from ourselves? Because we can look at someone else’s problems objectively, and we are so caught up in our own emotions that it’s hard to step back and look at our own problems with the same wisdom. But it is possible! As we learn and grow and spend more time in silence, we make better decisions, we become more wise.

-Lissa Coffey

Using Our Opportunities: Cat’s Angel Message for October 3, 2017

AutumnAngelbyCat 2

Using Our Opportunities: Cat’s Angel Message for October 3, 2017  

October’s Theme: Divine guidance and messages. Thoughts, ideas, insights, or even warnings. These messages are important for us personally, emotionally and spiritually so work on staying open  to the information that you receive.

The less I take the difficulties of my life as personal affront, and the more I use them as an opportunity to learn and grow… the easier I sleep at night.

– Mary Anne Radmacher

 

103:   Today we will be working with the Ascended Masters. Their message is pretty simple ” Call upon us anytime and know without a doubt that your thoughts and intentions are fully supported.” Our goal is to stay focused on making  forward progress and allowing yourself to grow. Personal development and listening to the voice of wisdom can be achieved when working with the Ascended Masters.  Remember the more you work with the AM’s the easier it becomes to  receive and understand the messages they send you. You will know they are nearby the warm, peaceful feelings you get when you call them.

Buddha: Balance and moderation, peace, spiritual growth.

Jesus: Divine guidance and communication, direction, forgiveness.

Saint Germain: Life Purpose, direction.

Saint Padre Pio: Healing/healers, spiritual growth.

Saint Therese: Healing, spiritual counseling.

Serapis Bey: Loving care, spiritual insight or peace

Solomon: Helps you do things better and more efficiently.
Our Sacred Stone for today is  Moldavite which elevates our consciousness and helps us to connect to the Ascended Masters.
Bright blessings for a magickal day!

Cat
