Daily Good: What It Means to Hold Space & 8 Tips to Do it Well

“To truly support people in their own growth, transformation, grief, etc., we can’t do it by taking their power away (ie. trying to fix their problems), shaming them (ie. implying that they should know more than they do), or overwhelming them (ie. giving them more information than they’re ready for). We have to be prepared to step to the side so that they can make their own choices, offer them unconditional love and support, give gentle guidance when it’s needed, and make them feel safe even when they make mistakes.” In this piece, author Heather Plett shares eight concise, clear, and readily-applicable tips she learned from others who have held space for her during tough times. { read more }

Elephant Journal: Asleep at the Wheel: 9 ways I Re-energized my Life.

Our brains are wired to be lazy.
Humans are mammals. As such, we create pattern generators.
What the hell are those?

A pattern generator is a neural pathway we create when we do something over and over. It’s how we learn to dance.
It’s how we learn to play basketball, ride a bike, or do our daily morning routine.

Patheos-Pagan: Three Gates to Transformation

The Three Gates are the ways that we, practitioners, enter the Path of Transformation. It is how we gain the power to change our lives. Each Gate is an initial approach we might take to enter the greater spiritual world and discover the deeper self. I have discussed them elsewhere as the Priest, Magician, and Shaman; these are the three initial ways to begin training.

Inner Journey:

BELIEVE IN YOUR UNLIMITED POTENTIAL

“You cannot see anything that you do not first contemplate as a reality.”
— Ramtha

How do you typically define yourself? Do you tell yourself and others that you are slow and methodical, that you have two left feet, that you are lazy, or unimaginative or that you can’t hang on to money?

In our unconscious self talk, most of us rarely say positive things about ourselves. List the positive and the negative ways you describe yourself. Then look over your list and contemplate how those definitions limit your ability to be cosmic in your outlook and performance.

“Belief has the word ‘lie’ in it… and that pretty much sums up what the world has us believing about ourselves.”
— Doug Firebaugh

“We are what we believe we are.”
— Benjamin N. Cardozo

Soul

“The soul of man is immortal and imperishable.”

-Plato (427-347 B.C.)

The physical world is temporary and transient. It is ever changing. What is true and constant and utterly reliable is that God is ever-present. And our connection with that Source remains even when the physical fades away.

-Lissa Coffey

 A Fulfilling Life: Cat’s Angel Message for July 22, 2018 

 July’s Theme: Pay attention to your path. Spirit is speaking to you so get ready to receive some important guidance. If something compels you to take action this is the time to go for it!


Where are you going? Where does your path lead? You can never know the future, yet wandering aimlessly is unlikely to be the source of a fulfilling life. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie


722:  Your path is like a road trip. It consists of many sights and attractions, some good and some bad. We encounter bumps, potholes and roadblocks mixed in with some truly breathtaking and inspiring scenery. We even find side paths that lead us on a merry chase all the while teaching us valuable lessons along the way. However, in order to grow we need to keep moving forward. This requires focus on our desired destination, even if we’re not quite sure how to get there. The key is to stay strong and believe in yourself. Today the Angels are reminding us that life is full of unlimited possibilities and we have unlimited potential. You are an amazing being who is worthy of the best the Universe has to offer!


Archangel Chamuel can help you find your way if you have wandered off on a side path and feel lost or unsure if this is the place you want to be. Ascended Master Vywamus teaches us that change can be healing opportunity. This happens as we allow ourselves to let go of the things that have held us back and the Egyptian Goddess Maat is an excellent adviser during times when we are confused or unsure of situations or choices that are presented to us. She tells us “Honor yourself by being truthful. It is truth that creates order out of difficult or confusing situations.”


Our Sacred Stones for today are Eulite (Hypersthene) which helps us to find solutions to problems (large and small) that get in our way and can hold us back. It will also make seeing the answers and solutions easier by stopping the need to overthink or overly critical thinking and  Rhodonite  to help balance both mental and physical energy. It shows us all sides to any given situation and clears away confusion and helps to promote confidence.


Bright blessings for a magickal day!
