RUMInations …

I am dust particles in sunlight.
I am the round sun.
To the bits of dust I say, Stay.
To the sun, Keep moving.
I am morning mist, and the breathing of evening.
I am wind in the top of a grove, and surf on the cliff.
Mast, rudder, helmsman, and keel,
I am also the coral reef they founder on.
I am a tree with a trained parrot in its branches.
Silence, thought, and voice.
The musical air coming through a flute,
a spark of a stone, a flickering in metal.
Both candle and the moth crazy around it.
Rose, and the nightingale lost in the fragrance.
I am all orders of being, the circling galaxy,
the evolutionary intelligence, the lift,
and the falling away. What is, and what isn’t.
You who know Jelaluddin, You the one in all,
say who I am. Say I am You.
– Rumi

Are we living in a Higher Dimensional Black Hole?

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

BIG BANG Bombshell. Are we living inside a HUGE higher dimensional black hole? Is the big bang, and all that came from it, a holographic mirage from another dimension?

User:Alain r [CC BY-SA 2.5 ( Black Holes have become of interest to the mainstream public as the first photograph of a black hole was made April 10, 2019.

Actually intuitively I always felt the Big bang theory is false. I have my natal planet Mercury conjunct to the Galactic Center the Black Hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. I believe that it is a huge wormhole into other dimensions.

The June 17 full moon is on the Galactic Center and a great time to meditate on the Black Holes in Our Universe and ask questions and see what comes to you in your mind. 

Canadian Astrophysicists at the University of Waterloo have proposed replacing the Big Bang…

Card of the Day – 2 of Swords – Sunday, June 16, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

Decisions can be difficult when conditions are a bit foggy. You will likely find that to be the case today, with so many players joining the party – Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and especially Neptune, which is about to retrograde on the 21st. Neptune is like a big old fog machine some days, and Jupiter loves to expand things. Mercury provides thought and communication, which may not feel clear enough for a rational decision. Saturn is the proverbial party pooper.

Bottom line for today, if you do not need to make an important decision, put it off for a couple of days – let some of the fog dissipate. However, do not allow yourself to be influenced by hopeful outcomes. Do what matters for you and only you.

See you here tomorrow!

Pāli Word a Day for June 16, 2019 — sacca — real, true

Na paresaṃ vilomāni,
na paresaṃ katākataṃ.
Attanova avekkheyya,
katāni akatāni ca.

Look not to the faults of others,
nor to their omissions and commissions.
But rather look to your own acts,
to what you have done and left undone.

2019 Sagittarius Full Moon in Horse Month

Susan Levitt

horse full moon
June 17 2019 is a full Moon in Sagittarius. Fire sign Sagittarius rules the 9th house of exploration, travel, and learning. This full Moon marks the peak of Horse month. Both Sagittarius and Horse are ruled by the element Fire. They like fast forward movement, and stay strong to the truth of their convictions.

The full Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Sagittarius that’s fortunate for everyone. People are in touch with their emotions, and have heightened intuition. Contact me for your tarot card reading or astrology charts for guidance.

Mercury conjuncts Mars in Cancer. The power of Mars is softened by Water sign Cancer. Still, there’s increased mental energy to talk your way to success, or skillfully debate your ideas. It’s good to finish projects as the lunar cycle wanes, especially before Mercury retrograde July 7 – 31.

Saturn conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. The old order of Saturn changes through Pluto…

Card of the Day – 5 of Swords – Saturday, June 15, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

As I came upon this card today, and I was looking at what is going on in the skies, I concluded it is indeed the right card for today. We are only two days from the Full Moon in Sagittarius (the Moon enters Sagittarius early here today), and are currently sandwiched in between two separate aspects, one yesterday involving Mars and Saturn, and one tomorrow with Mercury and Saturn. So often, when we see a 5 of Swords card, there appears to have been a fight…

Our 5 of Swords will play out in all kinds of ways today, possibly most visible to all will be those individuals wishing to engage in battle with everyone around them, desiring to win at all costs. Perhaps they are feeling Mars’ aggressive tendencies, and would be best left alone to gloat over their “win”, which is likely to be short-lived. This card very…

Spirituality | On Respect

Spirituality is unique and varies, to the individual Spirit on their own personal journey! This is why spirituality is NOT the same as religion. It has no set of rules; it has no set-in-stone beliefs to follow; and it gives you the freedom to explore yourself, as a person, as an individual soul!

The one thing it will, however, have in common with all of us – is that it wakes us up to all the ways we are connected to each other & all that surrounds us! Interconnection and oneness! And while is can take us down phases of depression & darkness; it is only so we may face our shadow selves & emerge stronger in the light of understanding, love, & inner peace! A lot of times spirituality does give us a sense of faith & beliefs – but those beliefs & personal journeys can be very personal & different!

So, letʻs always remember to embrace how beautiful it is for us to be different & unique! Being respectful, and knowing we can all accept one another & learn from each other – furthering our growth in the process! 💗💫💗

Energy Update | June 13, 2018

Archangel Gabriel is the Messenger of God and is all about our communication, messages, children and embodies both the sacred feminine and masculine. This means that Archangel Gabriel can feel both masculine and feminine. This angel is also connected to the Moon, intuition and creativity. Gabriel means “God is my strength”.

Archangels help and guide us on our path and we always have free will to receive or not to receive guidance and energy. Archangels are vibrations in the Universe that assist us when needed. These are not the same as our guardian angels, but we can easily call upon Archangels when we need support in any area of life. Archangels have no Ego, no judgement and work beyond time and space. So they are not tied to a place or a person, but can work multi-dimensionally. When you visualize Archangel Gabriel you can imagine a copper or white light that surrounds you. We can work with Archangel Raphael not matter where we are and the angels are just frequencies and energies that are not tied to any religion or beliefs. We can connect to the angels no matter what faith we have. As we have free will, Archangels don’t interfere with our lives unless we really call upon them and ask for help.

Archangels should not be confused with guardian angels which are unique to ourselves. There are different levels and frequencies of angels and Archangels have high frequencies that can help us heal and move forward on our paths. Parents can call upon Archangel Gabriel to get support with parenting and with children. If you are trying to conceive, you can call upon Archangel Gabriel to get help and support on your journey. Have you worked with and experiences the energy of Archangel Gabriel?

Cinnamon Supplementation Lessens the Severity of Menstrual Pain

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Primary dysmenorrhea, or menstrual pain, can disrupt a woman’s daily activities. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are used to control the symptoms of dysmenorrhea; however, they can produce adverse effects when used over a long period of time. Several medicinal plants have been shown to benefit dysmenorrhea. Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Lauraceae) bark, which has antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties, is used to treat indigestion, abdominal cramps, intestinal spasms, and nausea, among other issues. These authors conducted a double-blind, randomized, clinical trial to investigate the effects of cinnamon on primary dysmenorrhea.

The study included 80 single, female college students with primary dysmenorrhea who lived in dormitories at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences in Isfahan, Iran. The participants had regular menstrual cycles (21 to 38 days) with mild to moderate menstrual pain and no history of gynecological or systemic diseases or allergies to herbs. Those who were using hormonal or analgesic drugs were…

Tarot Card of the Day – 3 of Wands (Fire) – Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

I am happy to see this card show up during the month of June, because it shows me things are right on track. The 3 of Wands (Fire) is all about the future, and being able to watch it draw close. Change is definitely a part of this, and today shows the possibility of progress on at least one front. We have been discussing some target dates for this future self being on the radar; now is the time to prepare for what is coming. This card is not just about preparation, but foresight itself. Think of yourself as planning to take a vacation. Would you wait until the last minute to pack?
