Enthusiasm & Passion For Life

Window with Crystal Balls

What inspires you? What excites you?

Enthusiasm is invigorating. It also helps to counter balance apathy, boredom and a sluggish spirit.

One way to help chase away the blahs is to surround yourself with enthusiastic people. Another is to throw yourself into your projects, goals and dreams. Hold nothing back. Reclaim your passion and enthusiasm for life.

Let the energy of life fill you and inspire you to be enthusiastic about the things that are important to you. When you are filled with enthusiasm nothing in this world seems impossible. So let your enthusiasm for life shine brightly!

thought for the day;

“Do not judge whether what you are doing is impressive or mediocre, spiritual or mundane. Just do it with enthusiasm. Just give yourself to whatever you do with full knowledge: “God is within me. All actions that I perform are an offering to him.” – Swami Chidvilasananda

Hot Weekend

Wisteria

It was a hot weekend! Hot . . . So Hot!

We had really hot weather the whole weekend, a bit hotter than the normal temperature for this time of the year, for sure.

We stayed cool by drinking cold beverages, watching movies, and eating salads for dinner. It was so uncomfortably hot that we had to stay indoors most of the time. Thank goodness for the AC!!!

It is suppose to be cooler today and much cooler tomorrow. My plan for this morning is to weed and clean the flower beds in the garden.

quotes of the day:

“The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.”  -Hanna Rion

“In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.  My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.  The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.”  -Abram L. Urban

New Moon & Spiritual Bathing

Rivers of Life - Dream Card

In the great creation myths water was seen as a divine, nurturing, life-giving, cleansing, and renewing force.

We are all connected through the cycles of the ocean tides, the healing rains, and the life sustaining power of water. Every flowing river, stream, lake or natural spring has the power to refresh, calm, and balance our energies. Water’s spiritual energy can be very transformative and many people all over the world take part in some form of spiritual bathing.

A spiritual bath usually combines water, prayer, chants, sacred plants, herbs, stones, honey, or milk to cleanse away all negative thoughts and emotions that may be at the root of physical, spiritual and emotional illness.

Below is a New Moon spiritual bath ritual for manifesting a new job, to birth a new project, or begin a new phase of life.

On the day of the new moon gather some local flowers and herbs such as rose petals, lavender, marigolds, jasmine, plantain, strawberry leaf, chamomile, and basil are good choices. Simmer the herbs in a pot of water and strain into a container.

After sundown when the night sky is completely dark, it is time to prepare your bath:

  • Prepare your bath while meditating on what you wish to manifest. Pour the herbal flower infusion into your bath.
  • Put on some relaxing music and light some candles.
  • Keep your mind focused on the desired outcome during your bath. Use a wooden bowl to pour the bathwater over yourself while saying prayers, chanting, singing or meditating.
  • Think about the new moon: what would you like to bring to fruition, and how will you accomplish or manifest your dreams.
  • After your bath give a prayer of thanks.

“Think of yourself as a growing plant. A plant puts forth beautiful blooms when it has the energy to do so. The more it is fed, the less energy it needs for growth. If at any point your growth requires too much effort, try to find the needed nourishment. This is your responsibility. The river of life will take you to many places, but you must feed yourself along the way.” – Sandra Ingerman – A fall to Grace.

April’s Full Moon

Moon Dance

This month’s full moon is often referred to as Full Flower Moon, Seed Moon, Growing Moon, and Wind Moon. It’s a great time to celebrate new beginnings and also a time to stop planning, and start doing. Take all those ideas you’ve been thinking about and make them happen.

Plant your dreams and watch them grow . . .

“She leaned against the ancient stone archway and slowed her heartbeat, relaxing into the deep silence hovering over the ancient ruins.

Slowly the stones began to whisper and their voices turned into a dance of wind moving through the ancient ruins, swirling upwards as a mist began to rise from the stone floor. The curling mist moved towards her as she began to chant softly.

Beneath her the stones grew warm and glowed softly as the moon hung suspended overhead like a silver orb casting pools of light and shadow everywhere. She breathed in deeply opening herself to the power of the glowing stones. “Hear me ancestors of this place, I call to you to awaken from your deep sleep to dance with me beneath the light of the full moon,” she said. She turned and began to dance.”   . . .  Rose Arizmendi – The Deep Magic of Gaia

Seasons of Change

The Tides of Nature

The ever turning wheel of the seasons mark the passing of our year and the passage of time in nature.

Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter offer four perfect occasions for us to reflect on our lives and make offerings of gratitude to connect ourselves with the cycles of Mother Earth.

  • Plan a special walk in nature once each season and make an offering of bird seed or whatever else seems appropriate.
  • Celebrate the changing seasons by making a dream board with images of your intentions for the following season.
  • One of the most meaningful offerings we can make is to place ourselves directly in nature for a period of time with no distractions.
  • Share your hopes and dreams and what you plan to do to accomplish them. Speak so that the earth, trees and other living beings around you can hear and witness your intentions. Speak from the heart.

thought for the day: Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself  to the influence of each. Let them be your only diet, drink and botanical medicines. Be blown on by all the winds. Open your pores and bathe in all the tides of nature, in all her streams and oceans, at all seasons.  – Henry David Thoreau
