Spiritual Unite: Having A Mental Connection With Someone

To connect with someone mentally means to have a shared perspective of the world, to feel as though the other person thinks at the same level as yours. This sort of connection transcends the physical limitations of the human body. When your mind connects with that of another individual, you share a bond that connects the two of you through….

MBG: This Poem By A 107-Year-Old Woman Will Hit You Right In The Feels

After meeting Peggy Freydberg in 1994, writer Nancy Aronie “fell in love” with the (then 90-year-old) poet’s “humor and passion and wisdom.” They reconnected 21 years later, when Nancy lost three friends within the span of 10 days. She decided she wouldn’t put off seeing the people she wanted to spend time with anymore and started spending time with Peggy often.

Patheos-Pagan: The Debilitating Power of “I Can’t”

I have been hearing and seeing a lot of variations of the phrase “I can’t” in witchcraft lately. What really astounds me about this is that is starkly pushes against the grain of what witchcraft is. One of the reasons that I work so hard in my own path is that witchcraft gives me the power to stand up and say “I can, and I will.” At what point are we feeding so much into what we believe we can’t do, that we are essentially cutting off and limiting our own ability?

Inner Journey: Discover the treasures inside

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.”
— Denis Waitley

Peace, joy, health and well-being can only be found inside us. They exist within us now, as our essential nature, waiting for us to call on them.

No matter what our income, body shape or situation in life, each of us holds the power to take the inner journey to find our treasures within. This is what makes the inner journey so exciting!

“When we cannot find contentment in ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.”
— Francois De La Rochefoucauld

A Note from the Universe

Sometimes having more fun and being happier comes from looking for each in crazy, new places; instead of waiting for them to come from where you’ve found them before or where others are now finding them.

And I do mean crazy. Not just from the old standbys of travel, adventure, and romance, but from stretching, reaching, and growing. Accepting new responsibilities for your happiness, totally accepting others, and grasping even higher ideals. Philosophically taking yourself to places few have dared to go.

Red hot smokin’ love,

The Universe

Faith

“Faith is the centerpiece of a connected life. It allows us to live by the grace of invisible strands. It is a belief in a wisdom superior to our own. Faith becomes a teacher in the absence of fact.” -Terry Tempest Williams, Refuge (1991)

“Connected” and aware of our connection, is how we all want to live. Faith is all the evidence we need of that connection. When we turn to faith, we feel it. It is calming, comforting and all-knowing. We can’t always see it with our eyes, but we can feel it with our hearts.

Elephant Journal: A Little note to the Ooey Gooey Earthy Crunchy Spiritual Bums

We all have a place in our hearts for new age spirituality, let’s not lie.
Look—the crystals are kind of cool. Mercury always seems to be in retrograde. My horoscope is always pinpoint accurate. I can astral project my way to Pluto anytime I want. My vision board will iron out the details of my future. If I’m having problems in my love life, I can always get a Tarot reading and find out my spirit animal to show me the way. If all else fails, I can just talk about energy with an affected tone of voice. Spirituality is easy!

EarthSky News: Top tips for poison ivy

It feels like summer! Outdoor activities are in full swing, with kids going off to summer camp and adults hiking and mountain biking their way through the weekends. The trees are green. The flowers are blooming. Isn’t it glorious? Yet we mustn’t get too giddy in our outdoor merriment, lest we forget that there are dangers too. Because there in the woods, in the park, in your lawn even, lurks a trio of villains as bent on destruction as the three alien outlaws from Superman II. I’m speaking, of course, of poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac – three devious plants just itching for the chance to ruin your summer outings.

Patheos-Pagan: The Cauldron – A Perfect Container For My Magic.

All around my house you’ll find cauldrons. I have a large replica of the Gundestrup Cauldron on top of one prominent altar. There’s a collection of mini cauldrons nestled on the wood burning stove. I have cauldrons filled with beans for sorting. Another with drops of Awen (okay, they are gold coloured marbles but they are Awen to me) and two in my office that I work magic with each morning.

Inner Journey: 

FOLLOW THE 80/20 RULE

“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.”
— Nido Qubein

The 80/20 rule says that on a list of 10 tasks, only 2 of those tasks will return 80% of the value of the entire list. Look at your ‘to do’ list for today. Which tasks are directly related to what you most want in life? Find the 2 high value items on your list and tackle them first. These tasks are the ones that really move us forward.

Many of us actively avoid the top 2 priorities because they are more challenging than the rest. If they are to lead us to worthy goals, they are undoubtedly asking us to move into new territory in thinking and acting, and this can be scary. But this is also REWARDING!

“Don’t kid yourself: it’s because you’re doing all those C’s (low priorities) and NOT because you haven’t any time, that you don’t get to do your A’s.”
— Alan Lakein

The present

“On Arturo Toscanini’s eightieth birthday, someone asked his son, Walter, what his father ranked as his most important achievement. The son replied, “For him there can be no such thing. Whatever he happens to be doing at the moment is the biggest thing in his life – whether it is conducting a symphony or peeling an orange.” -Ardis Whitman

When we live in present moment awareness we’re living with heightened senses. We’re awake to the many miracles all around us, all the time. We can find joy in peeling an orange: filling our nostrils with the sweet and tangy fragrance, feasting our eyes on the brilliant fiery color, coating our fingers with the sticky and succulent juice. The orange is a gift, and we are blessed. When we are grateful, we are in the moment, and life is good!

Spiritual Unite: 12 Psychic Signs of Love You Should Recognise

We’re psychically connected to the entire universe. What makes that connection powerful is true love. We’re complete individuals, with unrestricted potentials of empathy and love.

MBG: The One Part Of Your Home You’re Not Paying Enough Attention To, According To Feng Shui 

Feng shui philosophy says that playing up your home’s entryway changes the way you experience the world. Entries blur the boundary between the outside world and our inner sanctuary, and they’re the first chance to deliver a good impression. These thresholds are the ideal space for welcoming fanfare—a home’s signature way of pulling us into an embrace. So if your foyer could use some tending to, here are a few ways to bring it into full bloom according to feng shui:

Elephant Journal: What Everyone Gets Wrong About Life Purpose

If there’s one thing we’re all searching for in our lives, it’s purpose.
We want to feel happy, fulfilled, meaningful—like our lives matter. We want to feel like there’s a point to all of this and that even our worst suffering is leading us somewhere.

At its core, it’s what we’re all actively seeking when we study spirituality, travel the world, achieve success in our work, and connect with loved ones. To know and share our purpose.

Inner Journey: 

PERFECTIONISM

“We have the need to be accepted and to be loved by others, but we cannot accept and love ourselves. The more self-love we have, the less we will experience self-abuse. Self-abuse comes from self-rejection, and self-rejection comes from having an image of what it means to be perfect and never measuring up to that ideal. Our image of perfection is the reason we reject ourselves the way we are, and why we don’t accept others the way they are.”
— Don Miguel Ruiz

“The maxim ‘Nothing but perfection’ may be spelled ‘Paralysis.'”
— Winston Churchill

“After enough mirror gazing, we all develop our ‘cosmic sense of humor.’ We no longer try to be perfect, or try to get all our work done in time. We become content with whatever life brings. Just to deal with what comes up without crucifying ourselves or others is enough of a challenge.”
— Paul Ferrini

“Good enough never is.”
— Debbi Fields

Freedom

“To have freedom is only to have that which is absolutely necessary to enable us to be what we ought to be.” -Ibn Rahel (Medieval Christian chronicler, lived in Egypt)
One of my children’s songs has a line in it that says: “You gotta be you and you gotta do what you love to do.” That’s freedom. Freedom lets us be ourselves. We often take freedom for granted – it feels so natural to us. But we need to recognize it every once in awhile, and celebrate it.

Patheos-Pagan: A Presence Beneath Our Feet: An Anecdote on Communing with the Mountain

Previously on Outside the Charmed Circle, I introduced the subject of an animistic, relational approach to working with the spirits of the land on which we live, and discussed both the inherent dangers and the absolute necessity of taking such an approach in a Pagan, polytheist, and occult context. It was suggested to me by a dear friend that, while my points may have been perfectly valid, they came across more as “avuncular advice from your wise old Misha” than might’ve been useful, and certainly more so than I’d intended.

Inner Journey:  Give yourself free time

“What is it that makes all of us end each day with the sense that we have not lived our time, but have been lived, used by what we do?”
— Jacob Needleman

How can you free up more time for yourself?

All of the great masters counsel that we need time daily for solitude. And if our journey in life is to become more aware of who we are, then surely we need some free time each day to explore our inner landscapes and uncover our passions.

What activities can you cut out of your life to give you more growing room?

“Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long, stretch of gray cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won’t happen. We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live.”
— Anna Quindlen

Dreams

“I’ve dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas: they’ve gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.” -Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights (1847)

Whether we’re talking about dreams that occur in our sleep state, or dreams as ambitions, we have these experiences for a reason. Dreams become a part of us, a part of who we are, and a factor in the decisions that we make. Embrace your dreams, pursue them, and watch them change and grow as you do.

MBG: What Your Chiron Sign Reveals About Your Greatest Strengths & Weakness

According to Greek mythology, Chiron was a healer, philosopher, and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself. Chiron’s placement in your natal chart can reveal a core wound that may take a lifetime to work through. But don’t distress: Our Chiron placement is also our secret power! As we grapple with pain, we gain wisdom that we can pass on to others like a magical salve. In fact, the symbol for Chiron is shaped like a key since unlocking his powers opens up a portal to deep, inner peace.

A Bountiful Moment

Keep your mind on the things you want and off the things you don’t want. ~Napoleon Hill

Daily Thought: Remember to always search and focus on the positive side to any situation you are encountering. Remember there is always a positive side. It is natural in the moments of a huge upset all you can see is the downside. But never forget there are two side to everything we encounter. It just depends on what you put your attention to.

Daily Practice:Keep your mind focused on the benefits you are striving to achieve with every step you make forward. Do not let little setbacks distract you from focusing on what you set to achieve. Visualize what the end goal is. Re-evaluate your steps and re-implement some of them if you need to. But make sure you are focusing on what you want not on what is distracting you from achieving it.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

 Coffey Talk: Lucky Ladybug

Many people shriek at the site of a bug, but the ladybug evokes smiles. This pretty little red and black creature is a symbol that we often see in the Spring and Summer printed on clothes and linens along with other garden images.

The ladybird or ladybug as we’ve known to call them, is actually a member of the beetle family. It is mentioned in numerous poems and nursery rhymes and is a favorite among children because of this. The ladybird has always been dedicated to the goddesses is said to be named for the Virgin Mary. The ladybird is a symbol of good luck of prosperity and also of fertility since it is a prolific insect. One tale says that if a ladybird lands in a female’s hand, she will be married within a year.

The ladybird is also a symbol of protection. There is a story that took place in the Middle Ages where aphids and other pests were ruining the crops. In desperation, the farmers were praying to the Virgin Mary for help. Shortly afterwards, ladybirds appeared and decimated the aphids. This is symbolic of the power of the beautiful beetle and the strength that could be found in the little things. The whole is more than the sum of the parts.

The ladybird is able to protect itself from larger predators because it gives off a scent that is so strong and repellent to its attackers. It is self-reliant. The number of spots on its back is symbolic as well. The spots are said to be a marker of the time it will take for something good to happen.

EarthSky News: Bright star Vega on May evenings

Tonight, look for the star Vega, the fifth brightest star in the sky. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you’ll find this beautiful bluish star easily, simply by looking northeastward at mid-evening in May.

Try it! Just look northeast in mid-evening in May. You’ll see this bright bluish star shining above that horizon. From far south in the Southern Hemisphere, you can’t see this star until late at night in May because Vega is located so far north on the sky’s dome. Vega will reach its high point for the night around 3 to 4 hours after midnight, at which time people in the Southern Hemisphere can see this star in the northern sky. As seen from mid-northern latitudes, the star shines high overhead at this early morning hour.

Patheos-Pagan: What is part of the Lore ?

The Lore of a group develops ideologically – we choose which things to add and to emphasize based on what we already believe and do rather than by an unbiased consideration of these new items. This isn’t always a bad thing because it results in a deeper and more complex exploration of issues and ideas, unless the group or individual does not realize that is what they are doing and mistakes their biases for objectivity.

Inner Journey:

WE PROJECT OUR STRENGTHS

“Any situation that you find yourself in, is an outward reflection of your inner state of beingness.”
— El Morya

We have discussed that OUR WORLD MIRRORS WHO WE ARE BACK TO US. When we get upset by something outside of us, our reaction shows us that we have an inner wound to be healed.

Just as we can be unconscious of our wounds, we can also be unconscious of our strengths. If you are really drawn to the positive qualities in another person, you are being invited to own those same qualities in yourself.

“The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth… if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them.”
— Shakti Gawain

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

Connection

“Nonbeing can never be;
being can never not be.
Both these statements are obvious
To those who have seen the truth.”

-The Bhagavad Gita

So, just where do we go to see “the truth?” If there were a cruise to get there I’ll bet we’d all sign up! But we don’t have to get on a luxury ship to see the Truth. We don’t have to go anywhere. We just need to go within. It’s all there. All the answers we seek. All the miracles we chase. Look within. You’ll see.

MBG: These Essential Oils Will Make You Fall Asleep Faster – And Help You Stay Asleep All Night Long

Is there anything worse than insomnia? Whether it’s chronic or situational depending on stress levels, there’s nothing worse than lying awake all night with your mind racing, wondering if you’ll ever get to sleep as the minutes tick by. Trust me, I’ve been there, and it’s the worst. Enter a fix I never saw coming but am so, so glad I found: A co-worker handed me essential oils, and my sleep (and life) has never been the same.

Inner Journey: 
PURPOSE BRINGS JOY

“Our purpose is hidden in our joy, our inspiration, our excitement. As we act on what shows up in our life our purpose shows up.”
— James King

For many of us, our joy is truly activated when we get a bigger picture of who we are and why we are here.

Most of us need to enlarge our self-concept. We may see ourselves as a bag of bones but, in truth, we are eternal, multi-faceted and multi-dimensional spiritual beings having a human experience. It’s time to think of ourselves as much larger and grander than just a physical and emotional being confined in a body.

“There is no more important step you can take than to define your life’s purpose. It develops your sense of belonging to our universe.”
— Arnold Patent

Friendship

“However deep our devotion may be to parents, or to children, it is our contemporaries alone with whom understanding is instinctive and entire.” -Vera Britain, Testament of Youth (1933)

Some people say that we can’t choose our parents or our children, but we can choose our friends. I don’t know if that is entirely true. I think there is some reason we have the family that we have, either by divine agreement or for learning purposes. I also think that our friends are our friends for a reason, too. We’re making choices all the time, and our friends are making choices, too. And somehow, those choices brought us together. And because we are brought together, we grow. We experience more of what life is about. Understanding is huge! To find a friend who truly understands is a magnificent gift.

MBG: Why Clearing Space At Home Is So Important (And How It’s Done, According To Feng Shui)

Space clearing is a way to shake up the stagnant energy in a space. And according to feng shui philosophy, when you clear your home, you create freedom and openness in the rest of your life too.

Space clearing is quite literally decluttering the energy in your life, and the practice has gone mainstream in recent years. (By now, I�m guessing almost all of us have come across sage sticks, gorgeous crystals, and maybe some chimes and Tibetan bowls.) One thing people don’t realize about space clearing is that it can be practical as well as mystical

Those thing are yours and yours alone to do. You are the only one who has the power and characteristics to complete your dreams. And your dreams accomplished translate to the good for all.

Daily Practice: Remember throughout your day how special you are. Celebrate you in small ways by telling yourself, rewarding yourself, or just thinking about your personal greatness. Don’t be afraid or shy away from this task. Celebrate you!

MNN: How this bug photographer is changing the future for bees

It’s a wonderful thing to capture beautiful images of nature. But it’s an exceptionally wonderful thing if those beautiful images can become a protective force for the very nature you’re photographing. That’s what conservation photographers strive for.

And photographer Clay Bolt has managed to achieve just such a goal through his photographs of bees and other wildlife. For example, Bolt’s images of the rusty-patched bumblebee were a critical part of getting the species onto the U.S. endangered species list, a first for native North American bee species.

Inner Journey: Are You Afraid To Be Different?

On the path of evolution, we move from being a willing and obedient member of the group to wanting to take control over our own lives. This is a necessary but difficult transition.

Andrew Schneider says, “At this point we are afraid of being ourselves. We are afraid of being unique and different. We are afraid of being individually powerful, and even successful. For all of these things stand against the old ways that told us that conformity was right and individualism was wrong.”

“For as long as we possibly can, we make a compromise. We try to live both lives – the dependent tribal life and the independent personal life – as contradictory and opposite as they are.

“We want approval from others. We want to be accepted and popular. We seek this comfort to overcome our fear and feel more secure. …So, at times when we conform, we don’t feel the fear of living. But we might lose the new sense of adventure, discovery, daring and enthusiasm for life that the questioning and questing have brought us.”

“Nature never repeats herself, and the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another.”
— Elizabeth Cady Stanton

A Note from the Universe

Expecting “end results” – such as wealth and abundance, health and harmony, friends and laughter – in broad brushstrokes, is part of the secret formula for manifesting the life of your dreams.

Expecting your path to follow a certain route – such as writing a bestseller to accumulate wealth, having a particular someone fall in love with you, or insisting upon this idea, that diet, or the other invention to be your deliverance – is just plain messing with the cursed hows and severely limits my options.

Cool?

Practice

“Never bring the car home without gas in the tank.” -Ron Shelton

Our spiritual practice is as essential to our soul as food is to our body. Practice provides us with the fuel which gets us through those difficult times. It leads us to peace, clarity, wisdom, and so much more. And just like a car, we can run out of “gas” when we’re stressed out from going for a lot of miles without a break. Make it a point to incorporate your spiritual practices into your day every day, and watch the difference in how you feel.
