Spirit Library: Energies Are Merging (a message from Kate Spreckley)

For some time now the energies of the Earth have retracted, which has given the planet time to rebuild and reorganise her evolving energies. With this New Moon phase there is a surge of Earth energy which is rising to the surface of the planet to merge with the incoming cosmic energy.

The Healing Medicine of Trees – Elder
by Susun Weed

ELDER is the last letter of the ogam alphabet (Ruis). It rarely attains tree status where it grows in North America, but it has taken me by surprise several times in Europe by the height to which it can grow (up to ten meters) and the tough bark it is capable of making.

Inner Journey: ON SELF-HONESTY

“No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne

“You cannot fake a relationship and feel right with yourself or anyone else. Changing yourself to fit what you think other people want doesn’t work. Pretending to be someone other than yourself only broadens the distance between the person you are and the one with whom you’re trying to establish closeness.”
— Mary Manin Morrissey

“Just as surely as distress must follow self-deceit, healing must follow self-honesty.”
— Vernon Howard

“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”

Science
“Science is not to be regarded merely as a storehouse of facts to be used for material purposes, but as one of the great human endeavors to be ranked with arts and religion as the guide and expression of man’s fearless quest for truth.”

-Richard Arman Gregory (1864-1952)


Ah, science! It had a whole different meaning to me when I was in high school and had to memorize the periodic table. Now I look at science as these amazing discoveries that lead us to the truth. It’s not such a big leap from spirituality to science. We can see all of the miracles that exist under a microscope, or through a telescope. And right here we are living miracles, every moment. In the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know?” several scientists weigh in on the facts of our existence, and what is happening all around us, all the time.

The world may seem to be working overtime to baffle or confuse you, but you don’t have to take the bait.

Keep things simple today and minimize getting upset by torn or unsettled feelings.

Astringents are used to firm and tone the skin. They constrict the pores and create a protective layer of firm tissue to fight against natural elements. However, some astringents can be harsh due to their alcohol content, thus, drying the skin. So why not create your own astringent at home?

Today’s recipe uses non-drying ingredients — witch hazel, lemon juice and, don’t be surprised – tea!

Inner Journey: FIND PEACE INSIDE

“All spiritual disciplines are done with a view to still the mind. The perfectly still mind is universal spirit.”
— Swami Ramdas

Getting into the habit of meditating, praying and/or resting daily helps us pull back from our preoccupation with the material world. In silence and solitude, we have an opportunity to pay attention to what’s happening inside rather than outside.

When we do this consistently, we learn to relax and to quiet and detach from our mental chatter and our turbulent emotions. As we begin to witness ourselves in personality, we also begin to experience our soul.

“Meditation may require a lifetime to master, but it will have been a lifetime well spent.” If you want to judge your progress, ask yourself these questions: Am I more loving? Is my judgment sounder? Do I have more energy? Can my mind remain calm under provocation? Am I free from the conditioning of anger, fear, and greed? Spiritual awareness reveals itself as eloquently in character development and selfless action as in mystical states.”
— Eknath Easwaran

Often, simply showing up is enough.

Because the friends, abundance, and health you now dream of possessing have long been in place.

Because the coincidences, surprises, and serendipities that will transform your life already lie in wait for your passing.

And because little else could speak louder of your belief in success than physically putting yourself in a position to receive.

Philosophy


“As a human being, you have no choice about the fact that you need a philosophy. Your only choice is whether you define your philosophy by a conscious, rational, disciplined process of thought and scrupulously logical deliberation – or let your subconscious accumulate a junk heap of unwarranted conclusions, false generalizations, undefined contradictions, undigested slogans, unidentified wishes, doubts and fears, thrown together by chance, but integrated by your subconscious into a kind of mongrel philosophy and fused into a single, solid weight: self-doubt, like a ball and chain in the place where your mind’s wings should have grown.”

-Ayn Rand, 1982


One of the really cool things about living this life is that we have so much self-responsibility. We think our own thoughts, we make our own philosophy, we live our own life the way we choose to live it. Be aware, think well, live well

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

Daily Tarot: Temperance

Maintain a sensible balance, remember to eat healthy, take a short break once and a while, and don’t aim too high. There’s plenty of work to be done that you can handle with ease.

Inner Journey: USE YOUR POWER TO CREATE

“I am a child of God. I came from the womb of creation.”
— Tao Te Ching

Our grand business in life is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.”
— Thomas Carlyle

We each play a role in the bigger game of life. In this bigger picture, life plays with energy and matter to expand, create, express and evolve. It explores new possibilities, realizes them and then reaches for even more. Life continually transforms what is into something brand new.

We choose how actively we take part in this cosmic dance. We can become mere spectators to life if we get stuck in old ideas that have lost their energy for us.

How much passion do you feel for your goals? Are you still being creative in how you work with them?

“Embrace fully your capacity to create, to think in unlimited ways, and to pursue everything that you have been wanting. Be flexible, open and willing to let the new come to you. “This can be the most joyous, prosperous, and creative time of your life.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

Letters
“Letter-writing on the part of a busy man or woman is the quintessence of generosity.”

-Agnes Repplier, 1926


Old-fashioned letter writing is almost a lost art. But think of the beauty of actually putting pen to paper and composing thoughts! How personal, how rare. This is entirely different that jotting off a quick e-mail, and cc’ing everyone on your list. This is different from buying a card printed with “Hallmark” sentiments. We’re all busy, but when we take the time to write a letter, it is a wonderful gift that we are giving.

Daily Good: Four Winged Poems

The very idea of a bird is a symbol and a suggestion to the poet.

  • John Burroughs –

Four Winged Poems

“This time of year, the birds catch my attention and hold it. The robins are back, or maybe they’re just bolder. I see them most in this early spring season, when the worms are warming up out of the soil. The goldfinches are muted still, their diets not yet offering the delights that turn their plumage bright. And the mourning doves are crying all day long…I love the way that watching them helps slow me down. This time of year, life can start to seem crowded and hectic. The school term is almost over, though there is still much work to complete. Longer days seem to come with more demands. I am grateful, then, for the birds.” Orion’s poetry editor Camille T. Dungy shares a selection of her favorite bird poems here. { read more }

Inner Journey: QUESTIONS THAT AREN’T HELPFUL

“We accept many notions because they seem to be the logical answers to our questions. But have we asked the right questions?”
— Harold L. Klawans

Sometimes we ask questions for which we really don’t want the answer! Nonetheless, when we ask a question, our subconscious minds will get to work to answer us.

Here are some examples of questions we want to avoid:

What’s wrong with me?
How long could this take?
What could go wrong?
How much trouble could it be?
How hard could it be?
Asking questions can be empowering – as long as they’re smart questions!

“The uncreative mind can spot wrong answers, but it takes a very creative mind to spot wrong questions.”

“Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it.”

You can get a great deal done today, and feel inwardly satisfied about it.

What is Time and Does it Always Move Forward?

“While we take for granted that time has a given direction, physicists don’t: most natural laws are time reversible which means they would work just as well if time was defined as running backwards. So why does time always move forward? And will it always do so?” { read more }

Long ago, the Coma star cluster represented the Lion’s tufted tail. It is a beautiful cluster, well worth taking the time to pick out in the night sky. You can see Leo from the suburbs, but you’ll need a dark sky to find the cluster. In mid-evening now, as seen from mid-northern latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, the constellation of the Lion will be high in the southern sky. You’ll see the Lion at nightfall, too, though more in the south-southeastern portion of the sky.

Inner Journey: PROBLEMS OR SOLUTIONS?

“If you expect the best, you will be the best. Learn to use one of the most powerful laws in this world; change your mental habits to belief instead of disbelief. Learn to expect, not to doubt. In so doing, you bringeverything into the realm of possibility.”
— Dr. Norman Vincent Peale

Stop and be aware! Have you been thinking about what you want or what you don’t want?

It’s so easy to lock our minds onto problems rather than opening to receive solutions. But what we think is what we get. This is so important! If we continually focus on problems and negatives, that’s where we’ll stay.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.”
— Helen Keller

Fate
“Fate keeps on happening.”

-Anita Loos, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1925)


Life keeps on happening. I am hearing that song from Journey in my head right now: “Wheel in the sky keeps on turning, don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow.” I guess that’s what keeps life interesting for us. We can’t control everything that happens in the world, because everyone has free will. So, yes, some things are uncertain – and that is really wonderful! We can have happy surprises at any time.

Daily Tarot: The Tower

The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause

Aprils Star Signs Aries and Taurus

Astrology Sign Aries
March 21- April 19

Aries, the ram, is the first astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Aries. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Aries is considered a “masculine”, positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign, and is one of four cardinal signs. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. Being the first sign in the zodiac, Aries is associated with the astrological 1st house.

Astrology Sign Taurus
April 20 – May 20

Taurus is the second astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Taurus. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes. In astrology, Taurus is considered a “feminine”, negative sign. It is also considered an earth sign and is one of four fixed signs Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus (which also rules Libra). Being the second sign of the zodiac, Taurus has been associated with the astrological second house. The glyph is also the alchemical symbol for rocksalt.

Inner Journey: LIVE IN RELAXATION

“It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. It is nothing but work, work, work.”
— Henry David Thoreau

Is relaxation possible only when we’re not working? No. With awareness and practice, we can be relaxed no matter what we are doing. In fact, when we work in a relaxed state, our productivity increases as our effort decreases.

For true relaxation, we need to connect with our bodies — to consciously and intentionally become aware of tension and release it.

“Anxiety breaks a man’s backbone.”
— Hebrew proverb

“Don’t hurry, don’t worry. You’re only here for a short visit. So be sure to stop and smell the flowers.”
— Walter Hagen

Thanks because if it weren’t for you, such ecstasies I would never know.

Regret
“The greater part of what my neighbors call good I believe in my soul to be bad, and if I regret anything it is very likely to be my good behavior. What demon possessed me that I behaved so well?”

-Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)


It’s all a matter of our own unique perspective. No one can make us regret anything. We have our own internal compass which lets us know if we’ve gone off course. There is always pressure from society, family, peers and associates to act a certain way or to live up to certain expectations. But the only one we answer to in the end is ourselves. We decide what behavior is “regrettable” or not

Daily Tarot: The Fool

The day may be full of confusion but you don’t have to go through it naively and unaware of what’s happening around you. It’s not a good day to flirt with taking silly risks, some of which might turn out to be semi-dangerous or costly. You may be too hyper to want to play it safe, but at least make an effort to not be naïve or irresponsible

Inner Journey: BUILD THE AWARENESS HABIT

“It is difficult to see the picture when you are inside of the frame.”
— Author Unknown

Start building the awareness habit: STOP and PAY ATTENTION. Set an intention to become aware of how you automatically react to different things in your life.

For example, how do you react to the alarm clock, the shower, traffic, work colleagues and situations, your partner or children? How do you react to anger or fear in someone else? How do you react to your own anger or fear? Become a witness to your own life. Pay attention to how you do things.

Inner Journey: WHAT’S YOUR BEST ROUTINE?

“For all my good intentions, there are days when things go wrong or I fall into old habits. When things are not going well, when I’m grumpy or mad, I’ll realize that I’ve not been paying attention to my soul and I’ve not been following my best routine.”
— Robert Fulghum

How do you need to bring more balance to your life?

Robert Fulghum has shared, “The older I get, the more I realize the importance of exercising the various dimensions of my body, soul, mind and heart. Taken together, these aspects give me a sense of wholeness. I want to be a whole human being rather than one who limps on one leg because I don’t know how to use all of my parts. Intellectual, emotional, and physical activity are not separate entities. Rather, they are dimensions of the same human being.”

“There is an Indian Belief that everyone is in a house of four rooms: A physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not complete.”
— Rumer Godden

Trees
“When you look up from your typewriter, look at the trees, not the calendar.”

-Mary Virginia Micka, The Cazenovia Journal (1990)


That’s good advice for all of us these days! We’re on the computer so much. When we get a moment’s break, what do we do? If we can just take some time to re-connect with nature, to remember the beauty that surrounds us, we will be so much more natural and relaxed. There is a tree right outside my office window. It looks so calm, and it makes me feel calm to just sit and look out the window for awhile.

You won’t be allowed to keep too low a profile, so just step up and do what’s important for today. You should encounter no resistance.

Inner Journey: BE TRUE TO YOURSELF

“In the final analysis, we count for something only because of the essential we embody, and if we do not embody that, life is wasted.”
— C.G. Jung

Where are you not being true to yourself?

All blocks arise when we’re not being authentic, when we’re not being true to ourselves. We know we’re not being authentic when we feel discomfort of any kind.

When our thoughts, feelings and actions align with our essence, we express the qualities of soul. Always trust that your soul knows what’s best for you.

Believe in yourself and act on your ideas. Give yourself permission to do what you want with your life. Take the initiative to set meaningful goals for yourself and achieve them. Begin to tell yourself why you CAN have what you want!

“A true knowledge of ourselves is knowledge of our power.”
— Mark Rutherford

Women and Men
“My research suggests that men and women may speak different languages that they assume are the same, using similar words to encode disparate experiences of self and social relationships. Because these languages share an overlapping moral vocabulary, they contain a propensity for systematic mistranslation.”

-Carol Gilligan, In a Different Voice (1982)


Communication. Ask any relationship expert and they will tell you that the major issue between men and women is communication. But this is true in just about any relationship. Parents and teenagers, employers and employees, teachers and students. We need to really listen, to make sure that we understand and are understood.

Inner Journey: BEING GENUINE

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

When we don’t know who we are — or if we are afraid to be who we are — we betray ourselves. We pretend to be who we think we are. Our self image is made up of our experiences, desires and other people’s ideas and expectations of us.

Maintaining this false self is a betrayal of ourselves. In all deep spiritual journeys, there is the experience of betrayal. Betrayal always tells us to adjust our life to be more authentic. What we identify with is all important.

There are large betrayals (e.g., your partner leaving you) and small betrayals (e.g., disappointments). They are all experiences of being wounded for the purpose of breaking down the defenses of the personality. When we allow the wounding and accept the betrayals as divine gifts, we greatly benefit.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
— Dr. Seuss (via Elena)

“What you must dare is to be yourself.”
— Dag Hammarskjold

Longevity
“What counts is not the years in your life but the life in your years.”

-Adlai E. Stevenson (1900-1965)


We often hear “You’re as young as you feel” or “You’re as young as you think you are!” Think about it. How important is our chronological age anyway? It’s just a marker of time. Of course we need to take care of ourselves, and we also need to go out there and experience life, to challenge ourselves, to live Life with a capital “L!”
