TIPS FOR TODAY:

 

# 1 – Wise words, indeed!

 

# 2 – This was a quote featured in the weekly newsletter I received from astrologer Rob Brezsny…..

“The Way of Abundance is all too often misconstrued as a shallow sense
of ‘getting what one wants,’ ‘eliminating the negative,’ or ‘being free from pain.’ Even the often-touted ‘manifesting your dreams,’ offers a
psychological disposition that generally remains fixated around
manifestation as ‘the project of me.’

“But the ‘project of me’ can never be enough, for it does not meet ‘the
other,’ and real living involves meeting. The touch and contact with all of life, the full freedom of non-separation, the completeness of full
relationship, and the radiance of compassionate ecstasy is what we are
inherently hungry for.”

– Rick Jarow, Alchemy of Abundance

 

# 3 – What a smile….the Buddha would be pleased.

"In many statues and pictures, the Buddha is depicted with a slight smile. Research now shows that even a small smile relaxes our reactivity and inclines us toward feelings of ease and well being." - Tara Brach, "True Refuge"</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

“In many statues and pictures, the Buddha is depicted with a slight smile. Research now shows that even a small smile relaxes our reactivity and inclines us toward feelings of ease and well being.” – Tara Brach, “True Refuge”

 

# 4 – Short, insightful presentation by Eckhart Tolle on surrender and resistance……

 

# 5 – And the winter solstice and new moon are upon us and, according to astrograph.com, it sounds like we’re in for what could be a powerfully transformative time…..

Sunday’s Winter Solstice is a powerful one and deserves a special mention, not least because this same day also represents the significant turning point of the Capricorn New Moon, taking place just a few hours later. Additionally, the extremely close Uranus-Pluto square and Eris-Jupiter trine are still quite active, as they are for the entire month of December.

But first a few words about the Winter Solstice itself, that ancient festival of the returning of the light that is still celebrated in Western culture with its survival into modern times as the Christian and Jewish holiday season. Just as the New Moon represents the beginning of the monthly lunation cycle, based on the relationship of Sun and Moon, the Winter Solstice represents one important beginning of the yearly cycle of the Earth’s relationship to the Sun, when the daylight reaches its lowest point, and begins to rise again.

Another important timing is of course the Sun’s “Aries ingress,” of the Spring Equinox, also considered a yearly starting point when the length of day is equal to the length of night. The Winter Solstice is also known as the “Capricorn ingress” of the Sun, or entrance into the sign of Capricorn, as he completes and initiates another yearly cycle. Astrologers therefore use the chart for the Winter Solstice, the timing of the shortest daylight period of the entire year as the opportunity for taking a symbolic look at the year ahead…

And an excerpt from an article at mooncircles.com about the new moon and solstice…..

Change-agent Uranus in fiery Aries stations direct at the Solstice/New Moon as well, jumpstarting a burning desire and momentum that’s been held in abeyance for five months. In fact, the three-hour period from 2:45 pm to 5:36 pm PST on Dec. 21st is one of the strongest portals for release and rebirth that I’ve seen in a long while. This is especially true wherever zero degrees of Capricorn (New Moon) and 12 degrees of Aries (Uranus SD) fall in your chart. I’ve been telling all my clients to get out into nature or at least light a candle and do a ritual to celebrate the rebirth of the light within. Whatever intentions we set at this time will be supported by Saturn’s shift into Sagittarius on Dec. 23, which will help us cultivate and sustain hope, and stay on track to manifest our New Year’s goals.

I am a 21 yr. old Victoria's Secret model with an IQ of 278 and was recently featured on the cover of a Fortune 500 magazine as the world's first bizillionaire.....:-) Oops! Guess that was in a past life. In THIS lifetime I am the author of two books, one on effective visioning and Self-awareness, and the other on detoxing the body and improving overall health. I've also spent some time dabbling in watercolors, putting together two websites (www.allonetogether.com and www.evolutionmadeeasier.com) on conscious living, writing two blogs (Evolution Made Easier and Self-help Health), and doing several types of energy work. Yadda, yadda, blah, blah. :-) Anyway, I love when I find some new teaching, inspirational quote, enlightening information, health-promoting protocol, or other resource that ends up having a positive impact on my life. And I really enjoy passing along my "finds" so that others might benefit from them as well. In fact, that's the main reason I created my websites and blogs. So I hope you enjoy and make use of the information, articles, videos and other resources I'm drawn to share. And may it all somehow support you in creating a happier, healthier, more abundant life for yourself and those you care about! Visit Zirah (B. L.)'s profile on Pinterest.

  1. A great post, and thanks in particular for the short talk by Ekhart Tolle. It was exactly what I needed to hear right now. Thank you, and warm blessings of the season to you. Love and hugs, Harula xxx

    • Oh, sweetie, your comment made my day. So glad I could be a part of the Universe providing you w/ what you wanted/needed to hear right now. What’s interesting is I actually put together posts over a period of days, even weeks sometimes, and I added the tip about Tolle probably several wks ago, but just this morning finished and decided to publish the post. So it’s wonderful to notice the synchronicity and how things are working on your behalf, even weeks before you get/see the “pay-off.” :-)
