Tonight – June 22, 2018 – seek out the bright waxing gibbous moon as soon as darkness falls. That nearby brilliant “star” to the east of the moon on June 22 is actually no star at all. That’s the giant planet Jupiter, the 5th planet outward from the sun. As the moon makes its monthly rounds in front of …

Inner Journey: 

FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our minds are incredibly powerful. We put that power to work for us when we consciously set an intention to be or do something. Get into the habit of consciously setting an intention for activities throughout your day.

Your intention might support efficiency – for example, to complete a job or project by a specific time. Your intention might support your personal growth, e.g., to undertake a task that scares you. Or it might support more soul connection, e.g., to be grateful for gifts we take for granted.

When we take the time to set an intention, no matter how trivial, we are consciously choosing what we want for ourselves. With consistent attention, your intentions will come to life!

“By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you.”
— Deepak Chopra

A Note from the Universe

First, completely forget about who, how, and when. Then decide only upon what you want, the end result, with as much clarity as possible. I’ll shuffle the deck, the magic show will begin, and jokers won’t be all that are wild.

Gosh, you’re so much fun to watch when you read these things.

Deal,

Creativity

“Creativity can be described as letting go of certainties.” -Gail Sheehy, (Pathfinders, 1981)

What is certain anyway? If anything, certainty is habit, and it can get boring! It’s time to break the mold, shake things up, create a new paradigm! There are infinite possibilities out there, and within each one of us… let’s start trying them on for size!

The daisies are nodding o’er bending grass,
With bright eyes greeting me as I pass;

The buttercup lifteth its golden bowl;
The feathery clouds float airily by,
Flecking with silver the blue of the sky.

Spiritual Unite: Potent Cosmic Energies This Summer/Winter Solstice

The June Solstice falls on the 21st, the same day as the Full Moon. This is of particular significance and will amplify the cosmic energies of this already potent day.

In the Northern Hemisphere the solstice represents the starting of summer. On this day, we will have the longest period of sunlight and the shortest period of darkness.

Elephant Journal: Celebrate the Summer Solstice with 108 Sun Salutations.

We practice 108 Surya Namaskars to mark the close of a chapter, and invite in new energy.
This heat-building meditation helps us detoxify, reground, and activate our prana, or life force, as we move buried emotions out of the body and let go of what no longer serves us.

MNN: Sea urchins can see just fine with their feet

The first thing anyone notices about a sea urchin is how uninviting it looks: this “porcupine of the sea” looks downright medieval with those endless rows of black spikes pointing in every direction, daring you to get too close.

EarthSky News: Summer solstice at Stonehenge

It’s summer solstice time for us in the Northern Hemisphere. This solstice occurs at the instant the sun reaches its most northerly point on the celestial sphere, the imaginary sphere of stars surrounding Earth. In 2018, the June solstice happens at 10:07 UTC on June 21; translate to your time zone. Many – perhaps you – will celebrate this solstice sunrise, or next year’s solstice sunrise, at Stonehenge. Why?

A Note from the Universe

OK, can you keep a secret?

Let me tell you what happens…

There’ll be trumpets, fanfare, and parades. Happy tears, giggles, and hugs. Shrieks of joy, fits of laughter, and reunions with best friends.

There will be quiet, reflection, and revelations. Aha’s! No-way’s! And, of course, You-have-to-be-kidding’s!

Eventually followed by a deep, often surprising, longing for what will by then be viewed as the dream-life you led.

You could plot it on a chart.

The point of course, is that you are now living that dream-life.

Tallyho,

The Universe

Creativity

“We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.”-Nelson Mandela

Part of our purpose in life lies in our creativity. We are each an individual expression of God, and we each have a special contribution to bring to this planet. What makes your heart sing? What do you love to do? When you are doing that, you are expressing the divine presence within you. It’s joyful, it’s glorious!
