INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom with Marcus Aurelius

Shining a little light 🔦 on the wisdom of stoic philosopher and Roman emporer, Marcus Aurelius with today's 
#WednesdayWisdom.
Here are a few gems for you to ponder....
💎 "It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live." Don't stop living because of fear. 💎 "To live happily is an inward power of the Soul." You don't have to look very far to find happiness. It's already within you. 💎 "Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears." If you're able to see beyond what you perceive is an injury to you and receive it differently, you're then able to let it go and it no longer has any power over you. 👉 Please share with anyone you feel may benefit and I'd love to hear from you. We learn from one another. Xo

(protection)
Like just waking from a nap or coming out of our shell, we're stretching a bit but can't yet totally see where we're going. We know it's someplace new but aren't exactly sure what it looks like or how to get there yet we know we are Divinely supported and guided. - BRONZITE -
(protection)
Reminds us that we are indeed Divinely guided and supported and that we can trust ourselves in the process as well to know who we can trust to support us in the physical world because we are ultimately supported by a higher power.

Pretty powerful, optimistic and feel good start to the week!

We can create our own reality and change the world around us. Change begins with you. ❤️ And if you wanna learn and change and grow, start with a mini inner world chat thru journaling. Week 11 Journal Pages can be found on my blog at KarmicKindness.com.

INTERMISSION™: Making a Different Choice

INTERMISSION™: Making a Different Choice

INTERMISSION™:

He made me so angry. 😡
She hurt my feelings. 😞
They don't get it or me. 😩

Have you ever thought or said these statements?

At one time or another, I'd guess they've crossed your mind.

How many times have you fired off a retort from that place of pain only to realize that you overreacted and later ended up apologizing? 🖐️ Raising my hand.

It's easy to feel hurt and look to place the cause of that feeling on someone else but we are the ones responsible for how we feel.

If you feel pain, it's coming from a wound inside of you that needs attention, healing and nurturing.

You heal it by becoming aware that it's there, asking yourself some tough questions to gain a better understanding and when faced with a similar situation, you're then able to pause and make a different choice in the moment. (For a deeper dive on questions to ask yourself for a better understanding of what the pain is all about pop on over to my post... Compassionate Expression from May 19, 2020 on social or my blog at 
KarmicKindness.com.) It's important to realize this is a practice so don't beat yourself up if you remain on the same patterns of behavior for a bit before shifting out. It's taken many years to create so its gonna take a little time to unwind.

The beauty lies in the journey and what you learn along the way. 🦋

Remember, we learn from one another. I'd love to hear from you. Xo

INTERMISSION™: Monday Message

Whoa...what a weekend!

Lots of personal planets are retrograde bringing up quite a bit of 'stuff' for us to look at.

I went on a deep inner journey and man, did some stuff show up...feel like I'm still working thru it.

Talking with others it seems, even if they didn't do deep inner work on purpose, they ended up doing a bit anyway because of the retrograde planets I mentioned.

And the 
#WisdomoftheOracle cards for this week are in sync with that theme.
- UNFINISHED SYMPHONY -
(protection) "Stumbling forward is better than holding back. Don't overthink things or let yourself get distracted - just tie up any loose ends and deliver the results. Don't quit before the finish line. Spirit wants you to win.

- A LEG UP -
(protection)
Are you always insisting on doing everything yourself? Do you have little faith that help will come, convinced that the burden of the world is doomed to remain in your shoulders? Let others help you. Yes, it will make you feel vulnerable to admit you need a helping hand. You can't "do life" all by yourself.

❓ What in your life is unfinished?
❓ Where can you shift and perhaps ask for help?

Remember, weearn from one another and I'm happy to offer you a helping hand! Xo

INTERMISSION™: The Light & Dark Side of the Moon

INTERMISSION™: The Light & Dark Side of the Moon

INTERMISSION™: Moon

This week we're getting to know the Moon 🎑 !

Your 
#moonsign is the aspect of you that relates to your inner world. The part of you that you may keep hidden. It's the part of you that feels and those feelings can be full of joy and pleasure or csn be fearful and jealous.

The light and bright part of you like with the full moon 🌕 and the dark, shadowy part of you like the new moon 🌑. ✴️ Your moon sign is based on the constellation the moon was located in at the time of your birth.

I went a bit more deeply into each sign in the video but here's a quick one word recap for each sign...
♈ Aries - outspoken
♉ Taurus - sensitive
♊ Gemini - imaginative
♋ Cancer - charismatic
♌ Leo - dignified ♍ Virgo - intelligent ♎ Libra - charming
♏ Scorpio - self-reliant
♐ Sagittarius - humanitarian
♑ Capricorn - persistent ♒ Aquarius - independent
♓ Pisces - sympathetic
Do these descriptions resonate with you?
These are only related to your moon and there are 8 planets along with the sun that also influence who you are! 🌟

I'd love to hear from you. Does your moon sign feel like it 'fits' you? Why or why not?

INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom - Fun & Stoic Games

INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom - Fun & Stoic Games

Today's #WednesdayWisdom nugget is fun and games which seems to be a theme this week.
(Check out my oracle card theme reading post from Monday) 😁

I talked a bit about Joe Rogan who I wouldn't equate with Stoicism but apparently he's all about it. Who knew? 🤷‍♂️
And he is quoted as saying, "If you ever start taking things too seriously, just remember that we are talking monkeys on an organic spaceship flying through the universe." Something about that struck me as funny yet profound. And reminded me that we often take life so seriously when it's meant to be fun. 💃 Perhaps if we thought of life as a game or a dance and approached each person and situation as a partner with whom we might learn a new step or refine one we already know, it would feel easier, lighter and more fun.

I mentioned quite a few quotes in the video and won't bore you with all of them here but do want to leave you with the gist and overarching theme... Dont wait to demand the best for yourself.
A bit of struggle is part of the process but it's how you perceive it that makes the biggest difference on how it impacts you overall.

And one final thought from Voltaire...
"Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position. But certainty is an absurd one." So freaking true.

Remember we learn from one another so please share this wisdom with those who may need it today. Xo
