[Monday Message] Do it differently

The only constant is change. May of us do not like chaos, but chaos is inherent in creation, all creativity comes from chaos. It is the burst of energy that gives the impulse of Spirit to life. When we give in to the ego attachment to stasis, we are willing the Universe to cease to…

Grief is a natural reaction to endings

“If you let go of the grief, how do you honor those who have gone before, without wallowing in the loss?” I’m holding space right now for the passing of a friend, several others have died recently, and we are fast approaching the deathiversary of my Brother-In-Law, not to mention that April is a veil…

[Monday Message] Perceptions

Expectations create your perceptions. Perceptions define your experience. Your world is made up of your experiences. You are absolutely a co-creator of your universe! What if you expected miracles? Not miracles defined by you, those are wishes, and they can limit the possibilities. What if you expected the Universe to have your back? Not according…

[Monday Message] Know Thyself

The two mottos inscribed on the pediment of the temple of Apollo at Delphi were “know thyself” and “nothing in excess”.

[Monday Message] A trust exercise with the Universe

Trust. Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense regardless of how it turns out. -Vaclav Havel The only thing you can have control over, in your human form, are your actions and reactions.

The heart has a very different sort of knowingness that our usual operating systems. It will lead us in different directions, and…

[Monday Message] What are you allowing to influence you?

Everything that exists here on the physical plane exists in energetic form on the Astral plane first. We can create forms on the Astral through our imagination. If that form is given enough energy, it can manifest onto the physical. Energy follows focus. Our thoughts influence our world. This is a major component of magick….

[Monday Message] Spiritual Choices

This is a Free Will Universe. Humankind’s gift from the Divine is that of choice. Without it, we would have nothing to choose against. We can make choices to prioritize our animal nature, or we can make spiritual choices. You can either make the choices of your five-year-old self, or you can make choices based…

[Gratitude] Follow Through

A number of years ago, I did a forty day practice of labyrinth walks. Based on the astrology of this month into next month (more details on that coming on Friday), I feel called to do a practice of gratitude, based on the theme of the day, for the next 40 days. The themes are…

[Monday Message] Creating Distinction (and issues of neurodivergence)

In 2007, I wrote the entry for today’s message on creating distinction. That was before I really understood about neurodivergence, although I am, myself, neurodivergent. The series of posts about doom boxes pictured here brought to my attention that (a) I have tools for dealing with my clutter and (b) those tools don’t really work…
