Daily reminder

“Genuine, complete healing requires honesty with oneself. An inability to be honest obstructs healing as seriously as the inability to forgive. Honesty and forgiveness retrieve our energy- our spirits- from the energy dimension of ‘the past.'”

Dear Angels and Guides

Dear Angels and Guides:

When I have a choice to make today, please remind me to make the one that feeds my spirit. I figured you could help me out in your miraculous and wonderful ways.

Also, if you could put a word in for me with the Nature Devas, I’d appreciate it. I’m planting my garden this weekend. You know…

Thanks in advance.

All my love,

Holly Richelle

It’s Frey-day!!

By some accounts, Monday is Freyja‘s day (‘moon’ day, as she is associated with the moon). But I’m declaring today her day! She popped into my mind at some point during the night, and in my sleepy haze I thought, “Freyja. Freitag. It’s Friday… right on.” Then, I went back to sleep.

I didn’t forget you, though, girl!! I began the week with Ostara on my mind and in my heart. And here I am wrapping it up with Freyja, which is just fine with me by the way. She’s one of my favorites. Like Ostara, she is a Germanic/Nordic goddess of fertility. Both have ties to springtime.

Oh, and she apparently “rides in a chariot pulled by mighty cats across the rainbow bridge connecting Heaven and Earth” according to Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance oracle deck. You had me at ‘mighty cats.’

Shout out to Freyja! It’s your day, goddess!

“Think love. Live in appreciation and gratitude. Invite change into your life, if only through your attitude. And remind yourself continually of the message of all great spiritual masters worth theur salt: keep your spirit in the present time. In the language of Jesus, ‘Leave the dead and get on with your life.’ And as Buddha taught, ‘There is only now.'”

Ayurvedic spring cleaning

Now that spring is here, you may be considering undertaking some good ol’ spring cleaning. As I’ve said, this is a great time of year to make changes- out with the old and in with the new. Powerful forces are present to support any little seedling intentions that we wish to manifest. Working consciously with them is like a power-boost to our manifestation.

If your spring cleaning includes ditching any old habits or patterns that affect the body, the equinoxes are a great time for an Ayurvedic cleanse.

In Ayurveda, the seasons have a predominant dosha just as human beings do. Spring is a kapha season- with the wetness of spring rains and the heaviness of the saturated earth as comes back to life.

Following an Ayuvedic ‘spring cleaning’ program can help balance kapha in the body. Less kapha means less heaviness and more energy. Less inertia and more action.

Working with Mother Nature in this way is a great way to jumpstart any goals you have concerning your health and wellbeing. I don’t know about you… but I can use all the help I can get ♥

Daily reminder

“Human reasoning can never answer the mysteries of our lives. It can never explain the complexity of why things happen as they do. We can achieve a genuine sense of peace about life only by releasing our need to know why things happen in terms of human reasoning and by embracing Divine reasoning: ‘Let me know what I am able to know and trust that behind all events, no matter how painful, there is a reason from which good can come.'”

Hey there, Nature Devas

For many, the Spring Equinox is symbolic of rejuvenation in various forms and facets. The rebirth time in earthly cycles has come again. There are many ways in which a feeling of newness and possibility can manifest at this time of year.

Maybe you are inspired to undertake spring cleaning in your home- allowing the old junk to move out and make room for new things to come in. Maybe the milder weather and the prospect of summer on the horizon motivates you to get out and move around more. There are many ways to plant seeds during this season so that you may enjoy them throughout the year.

If the seeds you will be planting are literal, you have a great opportunity to connect with the Nature Devas. “The word deva comes from the Sanskrit language, meaning ‘a being of brilliant light’ and is used to indicate a non-physical being.” (via Soul-Guidance). They are nature spirits.

Even if you do not have a garden or grow any plants, you can send them a little love for the nourishing food that they help grow for you. You can send thanks when you appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature. They’re her entourage.

Take some time and include the Nature Devas as you celebrate the beginning of spring. They’re working hard this time of year!

Daily reminder

“Above all, be at ease, be as natural and spacious as possible. Slip quietly out of the noose of your habitual anxious self, release all grasping, and relax into your true nature. Think of your ordinary emotional, thought-ridden self as a block of ice or a slab of butter left out in the sun. If you are feeling hard and cold, let this aggression melt away in the sunlight of your meditation. Let peace work on you and enable you to gather your scattered mind into the mindfulness of Calm Abiding, and awaken in you the awareness and insight of Clear Seeing. And you will find all your negativity disarmed, your aggression dissolved, and your confusion evaporating slowly like mist into the vast and stainless sky of your absolute nature.”

Spring springs tonight!

The Vernal Equinox is tonight at 10:14pm PST!

Around the world, people will be celebrating this event according to their unique cultural and spiritual traditions. At my house, we’re having a Peeps and Pysanky party! I prepared the dyes this morning and put the eggs out so they will be the right temperature when it’s time to get our pysanky party on. My great-grandma was a real master at making Ukrainian Easter eggs, and it was a yearly tradition in my home growing up. I’m like an excited little kid to share it with my family.

As I mentioned recently, eggs are a symbol associated with the Teutonic goddess Ostara and decorating eggs in her honor on the Vernal Equinox (Ostara Sabbat) is an old tradition.

I’m lucky to be living in a time zone where staying up to burn my “clean slate” list won’t push me too far past my bedtime.

I love this season! Bring it on!!

Happy, blessed Spring to everyone! May the seeds you plant grow and flourish… ♥

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

This week, Doreen is working with the Magical Unicorns deck. She points out that she created this deck specifically to be child-friendly… for children of all ages. Fun! I may have to get some. Anything with unicorns is a win with me. Plus, I could use a child-friendly deck so that ‘that little boy’ has a place to focus his curious paws πŸ˜‰

Anyway… Doreen says that this will be a week of great growth and change. The timing is perfect with the equinox happening overnight tonight. Sounds like it may be a week of spring cleaning on many levels. Remember- opening, allowing, and working with the flow works better than resisting and struggling. Let go and ride the wave!

And for the children, inner children, those with children, those inspired by the unicorns, etc., tonight’s the night to test the Vernal Equinox egg balancing myth. Does it work for you?
