Ascended Masters and Channeling pt. 1 · Esoteric Empyre

Here we will speak about Ascended Masters and Channeling. An ascended master is essentially a true teacher who has left the Earth plane, and gone on to the next plane – a paradise where all who dwell there have achieved the same consciousness of Unselfish Love, Light, and Oneness. Because of their release from the consciousness limitations of the physical plane, they do have greater consciousness.  […]

Spellbinding Sweet Woodruff Cake: Prosperity Magic – gather

Good Witches Homestead

In my tiny wildish garden, nestling at the foot of a tall tree is sweet woodruff. Her glossy leaves and small white blossoms may be hidden by a profusion of taller plants, but it is her scent that…

I’m going to be baking this cake again for May Day Eve (April 29th) also known as Floralia by the Romans, Walpurgisnacht by the Teutons and Beltane by the Celts. This is a high time for magic as it falls exactly six months from All Hallow’s Eve, or Samhain, and thus was also a night when the veil between the worlds thinned. As a result ghosts, fairies, shapeshifter, and witches were at their most powerful, which is why it is also known as Hexennacht, from the Dutch (Heksennacht) meaning Witches’ Night.

Spirituality | The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ* return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men –
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Pāli Word a Day for April 30, 2018 — ṭhiṭika — standing, lasting, enduring; existing, living on

Sace bhāyatha dukkhassa, sace vo dukkhamappiyaṃ,
mākattha pāpakaṃ kammaṃ, āvi vā yadi vā raho.
Sace ca pāpakaṃ kammaṃ, karissatha karotha vā,
Na vo dukkhā pamutyatthi:
upeccapi palāyataṃ.

If you fear pain, if you dislike pain,
don’t do an evil deed in open or secret.
If you’re doing or will do an evil deed,
you won’t escape pain:
it will catch you even as you run away.

Udāna 5.44
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Daily Tarot | Card of the Day – 7 of Swords – Monday, April 30, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

What has been hidden and going on behind the scenes, may very well surface as a result of yesterday’s intense Full Moon in Scorpio. If you have been wondering about something, the truth of the situation may very well come to light at this time. Shady business and secrets have a habit of making their way out into the open when Scorpio is in the house.

If you are not the one trying to operate in a covert fashion, then you are likely witness to any revelations which come about now. Scorpio is the great detective, and this Full Moon is a huge turning point for many, so expect things to make their way to the forefront now. The 7 of Swords deals with betrayals, stealth mode, and all kinds of unseen activities. Trying to keep a secret around this truth-seeking Full Moon may be impossible.

Aloha Meditation Moments …

We spend our childhoods writing our dreams in diaries. As adults, those dreams quietly come true every single day … only sometimes we forget to notice, until it’s too late. So, slow down … and take it in. Let yourself feel it. Because sometimes, even the most beautiful dreams disappear when the sun comes up.

New opportunities open us up to greater possibilities. New information and a new perspective can permanently shift our consciousness … and the way we see the world will never be the same.

All day, every day, we fight against the current. Sometimes, we lose. Sometimes, we win. Sometimes, the current carries us exactly where we need to go … and sometimes, it slams us right into the rocks.

We define ourselves by our actions. But, it doesn’t mean we have to live by that definition. We can change our own story. We can refuse to accept the way people define us. We can work like hell to escape a bad reputation … only to wonder if we succeeded. It can be hard to shake the mistakes of the past. They’ll always come back to haunt us. But, one thing we never do: we don’t stop. We don’t quit. We get up and rejoin the fight.

Pāli Word a Day for April 29, 2018 — ākāsati — to shine

Gahakāraka, diṭṭhosi!
Puna gehaṃ na kāhasi.
Sabbā te phāsukā bhaggā gahakūṭaṃ visaṅkhataṃ.
Visaṅkhāragataṃ cittaṃ;
taṇhānaṃ khayamajjhagā.

O house-builder, you are seen!
You will not build this house again.
For your rafters are broken and your ridgepole shattered.
My mind has reached the Unconditioned;
I have attained the destruction of craving.

Card of the Day – Knight of Wands – Saturday, April 28, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Ah, the Bringer of Change! This guy has a tendency to be all over the place, and his energy needs to be harnessed in a positive manner. Mercury is still in Aries, so actions toward change may be made swiftly and recklessly, without enough forethought, so think of this as a caution to think things through first.

However, change is change nonetheless, and it can be exciting if you are accepting. Think of today as a day to embard on a great adventure. What are you passionate about; this is where you should be applying any excess energy you may be feeling now. The Moon is in Libra today which can actually have you weighing things out, but I truly feel the Mercurial energy will override the Libra Moon and you will suddenly spring into action.

See you here tomorrow!

Desserts | Baklava Cheesecake – The Best of Two Worlds

The baklava cheesecake is a winning fusion recipe in my book and it does justice to both recipes it is based on. It has all creaminess you would expect from any self-respecting cheesecake and all the nutty crunchiness of baklava. The sugar syrup with its fragrant orange and rose water notes helps of the dessert elements to come together happily!  […]

Scorpio Pink Pussy Full Moon

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology Psychic

Jupiter in Scorpio Astrology Tara Greene

Like the lotus which roots in the depths of the mud, we have the ability to open ourselves to fully flower under an intense Grand Fixed Cross Full SCORPIO Moon @ 9+ degrees.

The Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio square the North Node and CERES the Great Mother Dwarf Planet both at 10+ degrees LEO which points to the Power of the DIVINE FEMININE reigning and square the South Node at 10 degrees AQUARIUS. Aquarius rules freedom for all beings. 

The 8th sign brings to high tides our deepest feelings about sex, death, power, control, secrets, psychology, money, taxes, rebirth and transformation. It reveals the shadows.

SCORPIO Mon’s are never  LITE.

Pāli Word a Day for April 27, 2018 — anamatagga — without beginning or end, epithet of saṃsāra “whose beginning and end are alike unthinkable”

Mātā yathā niyaṃ
puttamāyusā ekaputtamanurakkhe,
evampi sabbabhūtesu
mānasaṃ bhāvaye aparimāṇaṃ.

As a mother would risk her life
to protect her child, her only child,
even so should one cultivate a limitless heart
with regard to all beings.

Daily Tarot | Card of the Day – 9 of Pentacles – Friday, April 27, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

It could be the Sun in Taurus, prompting you to bathe yourself in luxury, surrounding yourself with items which bring you security and comfort. But, wait, the 9 of Pentacles is so much more…

This is a card of independence and being able to stand on one’s own two feet. That does not make it about being alone, rather it gives you the ability to maintain more positive relationships, by being your own person, not being needy, thereby commanding the respect one deserves from any commitment. Today, you are able to find out a little more about who you are, who you are to become, and exactly where your new identity which is unfolding may be headed.

Card of the Day – King of Wands – Thursday, April 26, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Look at you taking charge! The King of Wands has a vision, and is able to enact the necessary plans and changes to make it happen. Passions run high today, perhaps with the approach of the intense Full Moon in Scorpio in three days. This is a card of power and powerful change, and stepping into a role of leadership, if only for yourself.

If you are an entrepreneur, you can use this King today to perform positive entrepreneurial duties. You see, the King of Wands has a fire which never goes out; he is not one to be in the trenches with his subjects, rather, he is the boss, and a very good leader at that. This can be you today, taking charge of an area of your own life, assuming a more managerial role on the job, and knowing exactly what it is which needs to be done…between…

Contemplations …

∞ “What I say is not to take anything away from anyone’s personal or organized belief systems. In fact, I say go ahead and enjoy your beliefs as far as you wish to take them. My only intention is to offer alternate paths to wander and ponder. Did you ever wonder why some beliefs work for some and not for others? Astrology, numerology, tarot cards, crystals, palm reading, religions/superstitions, and so on, are all fun, wonderful, playful Ideas or Symbols that some have created in this Reality to help, in some way, comprehend their connection to Source. Obviously, there are thousands and thousands of beliefs to choose from. In fact, if you picked up a pebble off the ground and Believed strongly enough that it had the power to Affect your path in life…IT WOULD. This is the True Power of our Minds. This is the True Power of Spirit. This is the True Power that we All have. So, CHOOSE to believe whatever you like. If it works for you, keep believing it. Have fun. If, however, your present belief system is Not working for you or you have some doubts, KNOW that you can change it at any time in any way, without any fear or punishment. My suggestion is Always to keep it simple. Believe in Yourself. Know that you are ONE with Creation. Know that the Power is Within You. Experience Infinite Possibilities. Look Beyond your Limited Belief Systems.” ∞
