30-Second Meditation: Take 30 for Dissolving Blocks, Tuesday 1-21-20

Think magic has to be hard? It requires no expensive tools or elaborate ritual. If you were here for yesterday’s Take 30 you know the drill.

The first step in more balanced and effective ritual or magic is tuning yourself to the greater, cosmic energies all around us.

One simple way to do this is to take 30 seconds each day to tap into the power of one of the eight directions at a certain time and ask for guidance. 30 seconds! What could be easier?

This short meditation and prayer practice can even be shared with non-pagans. It works regardless of belief system.

Tuesday morning, between 7 and 9 AM, face North East and take 30 focused seconds to connect with the energy of dissolving blocks in your life. That’s it!


Tuesday’s Forecast: All things must come to an end as nothing is permanent.

Today is the very last day of a 10-day cycle. Unfortunately, the feeling of being tied down and being caught up in the drama and the problems of others will be highlighted today. Today is a reflection of your experience of the last 10 days, illuminating what needs to be dissolved. The best way to navigate this Groundhog Day is to just slow down, observe and learn. Lay low and just let the world move along without trying to change anything. Remember to be patient with both yourself and others, as not everybody around you is aware of what is unfolding around them, so tempers could be frayed and unpredictable.

30-Second Magic: Take 30 for Self-Awareness 1-19-20

Think magic has to be hard? It requires no expensive tools or elaborate ritual setups.

If you were here for yesterday’s Take 30 you know the drill. The first step in more balanced and effective ritual or magic is tuning yourself to the greater, cosmic energies all around us. One simple way to do this is to take 30 seconds each day to tap into the power of one of the eight directions at a certain time and ask for guidance.

30 seconds! What could be easier?

Sunday afternoon, between 1 and 3 PM, face North West and take 30 focused seconds to connect with the energy of self-awareness.

That’s it!

Sunday’s Forecast: Today’s energy cycles shine a brilliant light into ourselves and our relationships with other beings and the wider world. Our sub–consciousness thoughts project themselves onto others and society; for good or for ill, we then form our view of the world. What goes around comes around! We create and manifest what we think.

As the center of our own social group, we attract like-minded souls and we form circles of friendships around these thoughts. In order to really see what you think, have a good look at your circle of friends and influences. Do you like or dislike what you see?

This self-awareness (or lack of it) can be the starting point for undoing obstacles— or creating them. So let’s collectively unravel what’s holding us— and our societies— back. True humanity is filled with compassionate warmth, a love for all beings which attracts others, rather than a power dynamic. This is a good goal to aim for in all of your relationships, mundane as well as spiritual.

For help on this journey, connect to the energy of self-awareness by facing North West between 1 and 3PM. At this time, say a short prayer, mantra or set your intention to ask for guidance on how to improve your relationships and your life by discovering who you are and what you can change about yourself, first. You are the center of your own worldview. Be patient with whatever lessons or insights are reflected back to you today!

(Can’t find North West? Well, look up. The sun will be almost directly above your head, toward the southwest. Now, turn around and turn a little to your left. Or look a bit to the right of where the sun sets, about 1/8th of a turn on a circle. You’ll be roughly in the neighborhood.) If you can’t make the group time, just join in at the closest point that day before midnight.

Mental Magic: Healing Meditation Ritual

Our minds are our most powerful tool. It is with directed thought, your intention that you create enchantment and create outcomes in your spellwork. By this same token, the consciousness management that is at the core of meditation is the connecting thread in body, mind and spirit wellness. I think of meditation as “mental magic” and you can and should harness the power of your brain to deal with stress and difficulty and achieve a higher state of awareness. Many of us start our day with some kind of grounding practice and I begin with an intention-setting meditation immediately upon rising.

Cultivating a calm inner state is instrumental to realizing your deepest goals and intentions. By starting your day grounded and centered, you'll experience more balance and flow throughout your day and into each evening. The practice of meditation helps you raise your energy and self-awareness. By expanding your consciousness, you create a clear, inner space that allows you to move towards the center of your creations. It's from this place of grounded awareness that you'll really focus on what's most important to you. Through guided meditations designed to help you relax and center, you'll have an opportunity to hone in and refine your inner vision

The Inner Temple-Part One

.... The spoken word changes reality.
The written word is manifestation of that reality.
And, the two combined cause physiological response
and affirmation of manifestation ....

Walking the Labyrinth—A Path of Grace to the Inner Self

At Grace Cathedral on California Street in San Francisco, scholar Lauren Artress oversaw the installation of not one but two labyrinths. Sue Patton Thoele, author of The Woman’s Book of Soul, invited me to go there one fine day a few years ago. I remember squeezing it into my schedule, feeling hurried, and hoping it would not take more than half an hour or so. I am a bit embarrassed to admit this, but I know I am not the only busy life-juggler who has found herself surprised by the Sacred. When we got there, a magnificent stillness presided over the entire cathedral. We chose the indoor labyrinth instead of the outdoor one, as there was a distinct chill in the foggy air that day. We read the simple instructions and, as told, removed our shoes to tread the path in bare or stocking feet. For my part, I had already begun to calm down, thanks to the peaceful atmosphere. As I walked in the light of the stained glass shadows, my schedule started to seem petty. Suddenly it seemed as if I could give this just a little more time.
