Future’s So Bright …

I planned to share this on Monday, but in many ways, this giggle fest post illustrates the positive, magical and more joyful aspects of Timothy Glenn’s “Smoking Hopium” post. The following events occurred on Valentine’s Day morning. David manifested the afternoon off, and I scheduled off the morning, too, as a personal day.

In my effort to embrace more of my Capricorn North Node and the December 19, 2017 move of taskmaster Saturn into its home sign of Capricorn, I ordered a goals workbook/2018 planner in addition to my astrological and moon cycle planner. This is not just any goals workbook, though! Continue reading

Timothy Glenn ~ Smoking Hopium

Today we have an excellent post from my long time friend, the astrologer, numerologist and author, Timothy Glenn. On the surface, this article seems to address both Left and Right political Hopium; however, the takeaway message goes much deeper than politics. Like me, Tim supports inner empowerment and creativity. Good things are happening in the external world — yes, even in politics, unless, for some reason, you like human trafficking and pedophilia, which I really hope you don’t!

Yet we have far more influence tending our own gardens, both literal and metaphorical. Beyond the prevailing bad news and false hope exists another, magical paradigm that responds to us in real time and with tangible, verifiable results.

I know so many people living from this inner space, and contrary to doom ‘n’ gloom or empty platitudes, these people keep manifesting dreams come true. As Within, So Without. Carl Jung said, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious.” Once we do, though, we can actively “become the change we wish to see in the world.” The Hopi prophecies remind us: “This could be a good time.” Indeed, it is a good time … whenever we align ourselves and make it so. Here’s Tim:

Smoking Hopium

By Timothy Glenn

Proterrian describes hope as “a wimpy substitute for faith.” When people have been beaten down by life, to the point that their faith has been shattered, hope is all they have left. Faith reaches assuredly for the next handhold or foothold, even if unseen. But when hope is the only show in town, it grasps at straws in the wind, like a last gasp of desperation. The best thing that can be said for hope is that it’s better than nothing, because at least it hasn’t chosen total self destruction.

If your faith ever gets reduced to mere hope, it will help if you Continue reading

Happy Love Day + Eclipse Energy Info

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Love Day, however you celebrate the force of Love in your life. Below these beauties, you’ll find information on tomorrow’s eclipse. My natal chart features an Aquarius Moon, so I’ve already been feeling this energy. I know some people prefer to ignore the Moon, but given tides and our own water content, I still find it valuable to know what the energies support. Go with the flow and all that. 😉 Please use your own intuition and discernment, and feel the Love …

Reclaiming Roots and a Writing Update

It appears my 2018 word is “Roots.” I’ve been embracing my Celtic roots in ever deeper ways, describing “root issues” as I write a book on the metaphysics of Lyme disease, and on the physical level, I’m preparing for a (root chakra) colon cleanse. During this Imbolc season of release in preparation for Spring’s creativity, I’ve gone deep into my soul soil, planting seeds and watching others sprout. I’ve traced the mycelium and traveled the paths of telepathy and dynamic interconnection.

Learning Welsh

A few weeks ago, I mentioned feeling led to learn Welsh, and indeed, that project continues. In addition to being the language upon which Tolkien based Elvish, Cymraeg (pronounced kum-R EYE G), aka Welsh has opened my mind and soul in unexpected ways. For one, I can finally pronounce most of the names in the Mabinogian — a set of tales that includes early Arthurian legends, along with some of the weirdest myths and magic you’ll ever encounter.

The Communication Cure

I’m not sure why it’s suddenly surging in popularity today, but this one from June 2012 wants to go up again.

Laura Bruno's Blog

I think this is my favorite TED talk ever! “The CEO and founder of Intuitive Intelligence, Dr. Neha Sangwan is an Internal Medicine physician and corporate communication strategist empowering healthcare practitioners, organizational leaders and corporate employees in their own self-care. Dr. Sangwan is an international speaker and media spokeswoman on the topics of conflict resolution, leadership and team transition, power and hierarchy, stress management, and employee wellness.” She covers everything from the mind-body-spirit connection (Medical Intuitive awareness from an allopathic doctor!) to Saudi-Indian-American relations to media misrepresentations of conflict when there’s truly a connection among cultures. All in all, this is a fabulous, heartwarming talk. Enjoy!

BlogShare: Her Country Was Art – The Amazing Worlds and Life of Leonora Carrington

Oh, I love this! Thank you for sharing, Jamie. What a magical story and a great reminder to be true to our own creative process.

Sophia's Children

Elegant Mystery has shared several images of Leonora Carrington’s surrealist artwork, and the short documentary film about this amazing woman’s life.

What a wonderful, inspired, and deeply moving story!

Leonora Carrington’s story gives one example of what happens when a gifted imagination and artistry that’s ahead of its time meets the straight edges and mores of Victorian and early Industrialist worldviews and stringent expectations.

Her story also explores themes of home and exile, feeling like one doesn’t ‘fit in’, and shows the power of finding one’s tribe and kindreds, love and friendship, and a community that embraces and celebrates unusual gifts … and unusual people.

See the Elegant Mystery post here. (Thank you for sharing this!)

And find the short documentary film — rich with the wonderful surrealist paintings and a truly amazing story – here:

It’s well worth watching.

Big Love,

Jamie
