January Quotes

“From Heaven I fall, though from earth I begin.
No lady alive can show such a skin.
I’m bright as an angel, and light as a feather,
But heavy and dark, when you squeeze me together.
Though candor and truth in my aspect I bear,
Yet many poor creatures I help to insnare.
Though so much of Heaven appears in my make,
The foulest impressions I easily take.
My parent and I produce one another,
The mother the daughter, the daughter the mother.”

  • James Parton, A Riddle – On Snow

Inner Journey:

A NEW LOOK AT OLD ATTITUDES

“I can change. I can live out my imagination instead of my memory. I can tie myself to my limitless potential instead of my limiting past.”
— Stephen Covey

I was eating lunch with a friend who shared that she disliked one of the vegetables on my plate and hadn’t eaten any since childhood. I suggested that sometimes our tastes change and maybe she could give it another try. She did, and to her surprise, she enjoyed it. Her world became a little richer as she opened to new possibilities.

Is there something in your life you might be willing to give another try?

“Change. It has the power to uplift, to heal, to stimulate, surprise, open new doors, bring fresh experience and create excitement in life. Certainly it is worth the risk.”
— Leo Buscaglia

A Note from the Universe

I’ve got a feeling that this is going to be your kind of year. That you’ll be happier than you’ve ever been, laughing harder, smiling wider, standing taller, walking lighter, dancing crazier, hugging longer, living grander, loving louder, and if you want, selling the pictures to a tabloid to raise money for your new charity.

Can you feel it, too?

Conviction
“Soon after a hard decision something inevitably occurs to cast doubt. Holding steady against that doubt usually proves the decision.”

-R.I. Fitzhenry


Our convictions are constantly challenged. That’s just the nature of life. Even the foundation of the earth is challenged with floods and earthquakes, and yet it remains firm and steady. If we can hold up against the challenges and doubts, then it’s confirmation to us that we are doing what is right for ourselves, and we can be at peace with that.

-Lissa Coffey coffeytalk.com

It may be fun to take a risk or two, but this is not the day for it. You can fight your way through any difficulty, but why make work for yourself or put yourself in harm’s way? Remember, harm comes in more forms than just what is physical. If you need to blow off steam and exert your power, maybe take it to the gym.

December Quotes

“So the shortest day came, and the year died,
And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
Came people singing, dancing,
To drive the dark away.
They lighted candles in the winter trees;
They hung their homes with evergreen;
They burned beseeching fires all night long
To keep the year alive,
And when the new year’s sunshine blazed awake
They shouted, reveling.
Through all the frosty ages you can hear them
Echoing behind us – Listen!!
All the long echoes sing the same delight,
This shortest day,
As promise wakens in the sleeping land:
They carol, fest, give thanks,
And dearly love their friends,
And hope for peace.
And so do we, here, now,
This year and every year.
Welcome Yule!!”

Inner Journey:

ARE YOU IN INTEGRITY?

“In order to live a rich life, everything about who you are must be one, in alignment, and in pure harmony.”
— Suze Orman

For clear and honest expression, our thoughts, speech and actions must all be congruent. We will not stand in our power if we are inadvertently sending mixed messages-if we say one thing and do another.

I found it helpful to consciously identify the values that matter most to me. With these values in mind, it’s easier to ensure I’m living them.

“Honor your integrity and you will be repaid many times over with increased prosperity.”
— Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

A Note from the Universe

Now be honest and think of all your dreams that have already come true.

A lot, right? Tons. Actually, you’re legend.

Now, do you remember how before all the big ones came true, when you were pushing, reaching, and striving; hoping, wishing, and praying; you’d think to yourself, “Then I’ll be freer… then I’ll rock… then I’ll know all things are possible… how happy I will be!”?

Let’s keep those promises,

Enjoyment
“The man is richest whose pleasures are the cheapest.”

-Henry David Thoreau


A walk in the park. A child’s laughter. A hug from a friend. The first blooms in spring. What brings a smile to your face? Life is filled with things to enjoy. It’s up to us to find them, and enjoy them.

Daily Tarot: Temperance

A little emotional distance is called for to keep things peaceful and working smoothly. You may be very sentimental or attached to certain issues or other people’s opinions of you but don’t let this rule how the day goes. Don’t let anyone casually or ignorantly hurt your feelings. They may not even know what they’re doing. Stay functional and keep your emotional guards up.

REMEMBER…

“Never forget what you need to remember.”
— Garrett Bartley

What do you want to remember from this past week?

Reflect on your experience over the last 7 days. What was memorable about it? Write a short summary.

If you are not learning and moving forward, you are unconsciously entrenching older patterns more deeply. You are actually going backwards. So take a few minutes each week to reflect on what matters most in your life.

“Memory is the cabinet of the imagination, the treasury of reason, the registry of conscience, and the council chamber of thought.”
— Basile

A Note from the Universe

Would a “forever being” ever worry about the future? Ever look back and wonder? Would a “forever being” ever have anything to fear?

When the hands of time are frozen and this world no longer exists, you’ll just be getting started. This is preschool. Pre-pre-preschool. Let down your guard, go out on a limb, and take some more chances. Experiment, play, and stretch yourself. Honor your preferences, respect your wishes, and follow your heart. Practice, try, and try again.

Forget perfection, think adventure, and do all these things knowing that nothing can ever be taken away from a “forever being.”

To the ball,

“As the dew to the blossom, the bud to the bee,

Inner Journey: STAR CONNECTIONS

“The interchangeability of matter and spirit means the starlit magic of the outermost life of our universe becomes the soul-light magic of the innermost life of our self. The energy of the stars becomes us. We become the energy of the stars. Stardust and spirit unite and we begin: One with the universe. Whole and holy.”

Ponder the spectre of yourself as one human being in the over six billion people on Earth. See Earth as one tiny planet in a galaxy of billions of stars, and that galaxy as just one of billions of galaxies in our expanding universe. We are so minute as to be nonexistent. And yet, we have the power to visualize, to imagine the entirety of the cosmos.

In your journal, write about the paradox of being both microscopic and immense.

“I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if our spirituality were to come from looking not just into infinity but very closely at the world around us — and appreciating its depth and divinity.”
— Thomas Moore

“I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.”
— Harry Emerson Fosdick

A Note from the Universe

You are exactly as you now are – with your every mannerism, challenge, and trait; skill, talent, and strength – because before this life began, at the height of your glory, with full awareness of your divinity, reach, and magnificence, you knew best the stage that would maximize this adventure. Bad hair and all.

Trust yourself, Cat. You chose wisely, and though you may not see it yet, you’ve already mustered the courage you had to muster, faced the fears you had to face, braved the storms, fought the battles, and exceeded every expectation you ever had for being the kind of person you hoped you’d be.

Tickles me pink,

Empowerment
“True genius doesn’t fulfill expectations, it shatters them.”

I think of Buzz Lightyear, the astronaut in the movie Toy Story when he says: “To infinity, and beyond!” That’s empowerment – no limits, just potential. Whatever we can dream, we can achieve.

Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man

It’s possible that a trust has been violated or a relationship may be hurt by a broken promise, or you sense that this might happen soon. Until you know for sure who and what might be involved, take no action, although the discreet question asked of a trustworthy person might be all right, though still risky. Make no accusations but respect your own self-interest.

“Concentration is the ability to think about absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary.”
— Ray Knight

“Eventually, meditation will make our mind calm, clear, and as concentrated as a laser which we can focus at will. This capacity of one-pointed attention is the essence of genius. When we have this mastery over attention in everything we do, we have a genius for life itself: unshakable security, clear judgment, and deep personal relationships.”

The russet woods stood ripe to be stripped, but were yet full of leaf.
The purple of heath-bloom, faded but not withered, tinged the hills…

OVERWHELMED?

“Life does not happen to us, it happens from us.”
— Mike Wickett

Are you easily overwhelmed? If so, answer this question in your journal:

While growing up, what did you experience too much of?

Experiencing too much of something leads to feelings of overwhelm. When we’re young, overwhelm can lead us to believe that we are not capable or that we are not good enough. These are power issues.

Awareness of when we are feeling overwhelmed can help us go inside, claim our power and change our experience of any situation.

“When we know that the cause of something is in ourselves, and that we (ourselves) are one of the few things in the universe that we have the right and ability to change, we begin to get a sense of the choices we really do have, an inkling of the power we have, a feeling of being in charge… of our lives, of our future, of our dreams.”
— John-Roger and Peter McWilliams

Contentment
“Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.”

-Aldous Huxley (1894-1963)


If we substitute the word “money” for “happiness” in this quote it is easy to understand. Money is the by-product of industry and creativity. Money doesn’t come to us by wishing for it, but by working for it. Happiness is also the result of our efforts and activities. It comes to us through our spiritual practices, our relationships, and our work.

WHAT’S ON YOUR HOT LIST?

“The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want.”
— Ben Stein

A Hot List is basically a to-do list with one key difference: it only includes topics or tasks that really matter to you, those that genuinely affect your quality of life. You know — the ones you never get around to! The ones that will make your life your own!

Keep a prioritised Hot List handy to remind you to claim 5 to 15 minutes to focus on and write about what counts in your life. Even 5 minutes is better than nothing. Start small and the momentum will build.

“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage — pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically — to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.”

Insight
“I’ve learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.”

-Martha Washington


I think it was Abraham Lincoln who later said: “We’re about as happy as we make up our minds to be.” Events and circumstances change all around us, all the time. And yet our spirit remains present throughout. In difficulties, it doesn’t retreat to wait on more ideal times. We can choose our attitude. So why not choose to garner insight and make the most of any condition?

Inner Journey: WHY? WHY? WHY?

“As long as one keeps searching, the answers come.”
— Joan Baez

Asking ourselves ‘why?’ helps us delve deeply into our main motives — why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, ‘Why am I…?’ Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

“Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else….”
— Archibald Alexander

Reliability
“You can’t build a reputation on what you intend to do.”

-Liz Smith


Intention is one thing, action is another. Sure, the thought counts, but isn’t it a lot better to have the thought and the follow-through? There are a lot of ideas out there, but the implementation of the ideas is what makes them valuable. Being reliable means taking action, following through on intentions

Ancient civilizations believed that the world was set upon an enormous sapphire, which painted the sky blue with its reflection. This legend, as well as the belief that the ten commandments were inscribed upon tablets made of sapphire, gives September’s birthstone a royal place among gemstones.

Inner Journey:

GROWING OURSELVES

“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

We are all on a life-long journey. It is a search for who we are and why we are here. It is a journey that expands our consciousness.

There is an urge within each of us to move forward in life. It is an urge to become more whole, to find more meaning, and eventually to help others. It is human nature to strive for a sense of well-being.

We all go through the same growth cycles, though our experiences may appear entirely different. By understanding the process of personal and spiritual growth, we can work more effectively with the process, instead of fighting and resisting it.

“We can learn to be the catalysts for our own change.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

Communication
“Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.”

-Hannah Moore


There are times when we feel those “awkward pauses,” when we want to fill up the empty space with words. But then there are those beautiful times when we are comfortable just sitting and being with another person, when silence adds to our experience. In Japanese watercolors, it is said that the strokes that are painted are just as important as the spaces that are left blank. The overall work is simple, elegant, and meaningful.

We are still in this mystical space between the old and the new which requires a profound willingness to let go of the past and any attachments we have to future outcomes. Currently, we are being urged to dive deeply into this space and rediscover the truth of who we are, to reconcile the past and recognise that all that we have endured has led us to this place where true mastery of self is possible.

Inner Journey: TRUST YOURSELF

“I never know what the next lesson is going to be, because we’re not supposed to know; we’re supposed to trust ourselves to discover it.”
— Melody Beattie

How deeply do you trust your own guidance?

Always trust that you know what’s best for you. To move forward in your life, gather information from the ‘experts,’ consider how their advice relates to your situation and then act only on what feels right for you. What does your whole being (mind, body and soul) say ‘Yes!’ to?

You are the only expert for your own life.

“I trust so much in the power of the heart and the soul; I know that the answer to what we need to do next is in our own hearts. All we have to do is listen, then take that one step further and trust what we hear. We will be taught what we need to learn.”
— Melody Beattie

“Ultimately, we must learn to trust ourselves. When we do this intimately and intelligently, the world opens full of meaning before us. We find that we ourselves are the doorway to a fathomless understanding of the source of life itself. We need only to learn to walk through it.”
— James Thornton

New eyes, a fresh perspective, an improved outlook. Think of all of the ways that we describe clarity. Clarity is used here as in seeing more clearly, or understanding more deeply. Seeing with that inner vision, the mind’s eye, is important for our learning and growth.
