Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Moon – Inverted

The Moon - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft


While complaining in silence may not create negative energy between you and others, it still hurts you and your soul. Stop looking outside yourself for approval, stability and happiness. Those things can only be found within you. It’s not that someone else isn’t “making you laugh”, it’s that you’re not allowing yourself to be happy. Be accountable for your own emotions and be mindful about where your head really is.


Additional Insight:

Many people struggle during this time of peace and joy. Some have reason to be  worried about finances and making ends meet. But even in struggle no one controls your emotions except you. Even in the face of hardship people find a reason to smile and be joyful. After all, this time of the year really isn’t about how many presents you have under the tree or that you have a tree at all.

The commercialism of this time of year has taken away from the real reason behind the holiday. No matter what religion you follow we are all affected by the attitudes of peace and love. Compassion and kindness don’t cost you a dime.

Stop complaining about your lack or the insensitivity of others. You may not be saying the negative things out loud to them, but you’re still holding that energy within yourself. You’re still attracting that negative energy to you and allowing it to build and be expressed through your every day actions. The scowl on your face, the way you walk or the defeatest tone in your voice. You don’t have to say the words to express your inner thinking, but it can and often will still get out there.

This time of year is about the upward turn of the wheel of life, coming back from the darkness of days to the light and warmth. It’s the return of the Sun god, shining light on what’s important in the world. Not the trappings of commercialism, or the hurt feelings because you didn’t get the present you asked for, or the stress of making everything “perfect” for everyone else and forgetting what real peace and joy mean to your soul and the spirit of the holiday.

Many talk a good talk and say the season is about family, being together and honoring the love and compassion we share with those close to us. Then they turn around and yell at their sister, or talk badly about the attitudes of their in-laws or the actions of their friend. It’s not enough to talk the talk and fool others about your real inner voice. Because the energy you create within your heart and soul will still have an impact on yourself, and those around you.

No one can “make” you feel happy or joyful during any time of the year, and especially not in one particular season. Only you can control your own emotions. You decide how you feel and what this time of year means to you. Stop blaming others for what is lacking in your vision of the season and change your vision. Be mindful about what you’re thinking and be honest with yourself about where you’re putting the importance of events and issues that surround you. Are you talking a good talk? Or are you really trying to practice what you preach? You’re the only one who can truly answer that question.

When you are mindful of your thoughts and actions, you allow the compassion you have for others to shine within and for yourself as well. You fill your heart and soul with the true meaning of peace and joy, not only in this time or in this season, but all the year long. You put your beliefs into action, and your message into practice. Instead of criticizing, give yourself a hug. Love your self and find the one thing that brings you joy over all things. Whither it’s a person or a good book and cup of tea by the fire. Love what’s around you and in turn, your love and compassion will surround you and bring more of the same to your day.

You can order a personal reading from Spring through the Services at Spring’s Haven. We offer both in-house and email/phone/skype consultations. As a Ministerial organization, all our consultations are private and strictly confidential.

Another Friday the 13th

Thirteen On Springwolf ReflectionsOne Last Time For 2013

This week marks Friday December 13th, 2013 and many people are wondering what is it with Friday the 13th days anyway? What does it mean, where did this spooky tradition start and is it really a day for bad luck?

It’s known as “Black Friday” or “Black Cat Day” and fear of Friday the 13th is known as triskaidekaphobes. It may not surprise many people to know it’s not a world-wide thing. It’s pretty much an Anglo-European/American thing.

As with many evil and spooky occasions such as this, fear of Friday the 13th began with the vilification of pagan beliefs and practices from the early Christian Church. What a surprise! But this isn’t about them, it’s about Friday the 13th for December 2013! Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Sun

 

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Your actions can’t be hidden forever. Eventually the light will shine upon what you’ve been doing. Let it expose the good works and actions you’ve been putting forth. But be cautious of the things you do, especially over the next three weeks. Make sure you’re mindful and avoid the negative intolerant actions. The light of the sun can burn you, just as it can help things grow to sustain you.


Additional Insight:

It’s not enough to give your beliefs lip service and then put negative thoughts into action when you walk through the temple doors. What you say and what you do carry more weight and cannot be overridden by those few moments of spiritual devotion.

Many put forth an effort to be compassionate to others during this season of peace and giving. But during all the other moments of the year, they express intolerance and disdain. If you’re going to claim an affiliation with a spiritual path, you must walk that road all the year long. And in every action you take.

Not only in the thoughts you think to yourself, or the deeds you express in your community or in your family. But also, in all those little moments of expressed energy when you send a tweet or hit the share button on a story that demeans or criticizes someone else, be it a person or group.The written word can often hold more energy than what you say out loud in private to your closest friends.

It’s easy in our society today to get caught up in the negative. Show you have greater strength and courage to stand up for compassion, honesty and caring. There’s no better time to start that pattern of tolerance for others than right now during this season of peace and love that spans the world over.

Hold that feeling of compassion and caring for others in the middle of the year when there’s no holiday to celebrate and no greeting cards to remind you of the real lessons of spirit. You can become the light that shines all year long as a beacon for your faith of peace, love and compassion. And you might even pull some of that energy toward you for your own benefit by doing so.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: King of Cups – Inverted

 

King of Cups Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft


Be careful you don’t spend the day making gut reactions to things that irritate you. It’s ok to take a moment and contemplate what is going on. You might save yourself some heartache or problems. Be cautious of your mindset, make sure you’re not reacting out of hurt feelings from the past and from others who aren’t even your life today. Take a moment to set the old baggage down and try to understand what’s really going on.


Additional Insight:

Taking a moment to think before you respond isn’t a sign of weakness or a lack of intelligence. Just the opposite. It’s a sign that you are the one in control of your actions and emotions, not someone else. So don’t be baited into a fight today!

Determine what’s really going on in the situations around you. Ask yourself, is this conflict about me? Or about someone from my past? Don’t try to get involved in arguments that have nothing to do with you in the first place. No taking sides in arguments today! Instead, try to use your calm and compassion to ease the fear and anger of others. You might be more helpful in calming everyone down than getting involved in the actual war of words.

It’s a day to remember that being the leader means being in control of your own emotions and actions. Don’t allow yourself to be manipulated and turned against someone, or others, who don’t deserve it. Whither it be a spat at school, a rumor at work, or an unfounded post on Facebook. Don’t let the emotional energy get a hold of you and add to the fray. Not today!

Double check the facts, make sure the stories are true and accurate BEFORE you hit the share button. Ask yourself, do I want to add to the fear, intolerance, anger and hatred? Or do I want to be an example of Walking Your Talk and show compassion, calm and understanding to all sides. It’s that time of the year to step up your game and put into action your preaching from spirit.

Sunday Homily: Mindfulness

mindfulbellBeing Aware

Mindfulness, which, among other things, is an attentive awareness of the reality of things (especially of the present moment). Living in the now and being cognizant of the events you are engaged in at this moment in time.

It’s important to take a moment throughout the day to be Mindful of what you’re thing, how you’re allowing those thoughts to impact what you’re doing and how it resonates with your soul, spiritual mission and mental outlook. Both for a state of being and for a sense of living your beliefs and putting them into practice.

The thoughts you wake up with in the morning create your day. How you think through out the day, create your week. The patterns you develop throughout the month, create your year.

How you think, creates your reality, your health and your life.
Springwolf 🐾 © 2012

It is a state of being where balance and peace within the moment, within the self and being are the center of all things. It’s not just looking at your thoughts, but your present state of attitude and how that translates into the manifestation of actions and reactions.

If you are stressed, anxious or angry, those emotions will translate through you and into your actions. If you’re at peace and mindful of your thoughts, then the energy you create and express will be calm and enlightened. Do you want to yell at the person driving next to you on the highway? Or at the store clerk who’s taking to long to ring up your items? Or is there a way you can translate your spiritual awareness into calm peace and discover why you’re being held up in the first place? Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Seven of Pentacles

 

Seven of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Show compassion and attention to those you care for. Don’t dismiss their feelings of insecurity and distress. They may seem like little things to you, but to them, it’s their whole world. They need you to be the rock, the pillar of strength and the one they can lean on and hear the words “It’s going to be ok”. Your reassurance will go a long way and a lot farther than you could imagine.


Additional Insight:

When you’re young, and that includes teenagers, or when you’re an elderly family member and you rely on others for your daily care, it’s easy to forget there are bigger issues in the world. In these perspectives, the world is what’s happening to you, at this moment in time. And when you feel insecure, the last thing you need is someone dismissing your emotions as silly or invalid.

Fear, insecurity or simple sadness doesn’t have to make sense or be logical. Sometimes we don’t understand why we’re feeling the way we are. That doesn’t mean those feelings aren’t real or justified. It simply means something in the Universe has touched something within their soul and that can be even more fearful.

It’s not easy taking care of others who are scared. They take their fear out on you and present an attitude instead of gratitude. Try not to let their discomfort push your buttons. Take their hand, even if you have to fight over it and give them comfort. Ask them what has them upset and then talk to them about it. You don’t have to solve the issue, that can make things worse in some cases. But everyone needs someone to talk to. Give them a hug or hold them if you can. Listen to them, ask them questions or tell them a similar story that happened to you at one time in your life. Let them feel your concern and care.

Fort those who are old enough, try to talk to them about the problem. Explain why they’re hurting, and you’ll take some of the fear away. Especially with young children who don’t understand how their body is connected. Why does their ear hurt when their nose is stopped up? Explaining how things work can ease their fear and show them you do understand what’s going on and you’re there to help.

How you show compassion will determine how difficult or easy it is to get through this weekend. They may not be the only ones suffering through the weekend. If you’re one of those feeling insecure and on edge, try not to take it out on those around you. Make sure you explain your feelings and don’t expect others to simply know how you feel. No one can read your mind and your feelings are not part of a game of charades. Communication and compassion are the big words for the weekend. Remember you get what you put out.

You can order a personal reading from Spring through the Services at Spring’s Haven. We offer both in-house and email/phone/skype consultations. As a Ministerial organization, all our consultations are private and strictly confidential.

Picking Up On Global Events

packhowlImpacting Universal Consciousness

Last week on my facebook page, I asked a question;
“Have you experienced any unusual psychic feelings about something global in the past 2 months? If so, explain.”

Thank you to everyone who answered. We discussed the question and the answers on Monday night’s Ænigma Project, which you can listen to in the recorded podcast.

Because we humans can be easily influenced I wanted to ask a question, without giving too much information.  And I asked those who responded to refrain from reading the other replies until after they’ve posted their own answer, so as not to be influenced by someone else. The responses were all similar in nature with a feeling of foreboding, changes and sadness. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Queen of Pentacles

Queen of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Grab the low hanging fruit and you’ll be sustained. There is much you can do with what you have. Turn grapes into a meal, juice or wine. Step out of the box and look at the possibilities of what can be done in order to attain what you need. Stop being so focused on what you don’t have and look at the bigger picture of what you do have. Help the positive energy move and stop the negative energy from gaining traction!


Additional Insight:

Have you gotten used to feeling stressed and looking at the lack in your life? All you’re doing is creating more of the same energy around you. If you don’t turn it around soon, things will indeed get worse before they get better.

You may not be able to take a few days off and go to the Bahamas, but you don’t have to see yourself in drudgery and chained to the spinning wheel either. Little things have changed over the past year that have eased some of your tension and stress. Allow those little positives to help you change your perspective.

Instead of waiting for the other shoe to drop, look at the different perspective. At least you don’t have to stand there barefoot and hold both shoes. You can actually put one on and ease the rocky path you’ve been walking on. Today it’s all about the spin. How you spin your tale will carry you through the rest of the month.

If you focus on the positives, no matter how small, they will be begin to grow and supplement what you’ve already accomplished. Get to it and allow your positive connection with the Divine in your life to push outside the box and open the universe of possibilities you already have within reach! You can do this! Time to stand up for yourself and stop being the “freebie” for those who are using you and / or taking you for granted.


This is the 800th post on Springwolf Reflections and I had to take note of that. In Shamanistic Numerology, the number is calculated as 8 + 0 + 0 = 8.

Eight – The number of infinity, the infinite possibilities, breaking barriers, always moving.

  • This number is associated with Pluto.
  • This number is associated with the Hawthorne Tree.
  • This number is associated with the Deer.
  • It represents our ability to strive for things, be they personal, family, professional.
  • Positive Direction: When 8 is in your life it can represent a time to strive on, use innovation to overcome challenges. Endurance is a big thing with the number 8, as that effort to continue can bring great success in physical matters of profession, abundance and finance.
  • Negative Direction: In reverse 8 can indicate stagnation, constantly digging a hole that’s hard to get out of. Refusal to see how patterns create dis-ease and strife. Always giving up because there’s too much in the way.

Well now, that sure does fit today’s message, doesn’t it!
