Religious Freedom vs Rights Of Conscience

Patriotic Wolf - Artist Unknown

Patriotic Wolf – Artist Unknown

Press Release – March 31, 2015

Everyone at Spring’s Haven and Springwolf Reflections are disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana. We do not embrace nor participate in any form of exclusion or intolerance.

We strongly support the ideas and concepts set forth by our Founding Fathers and echo the sentiments of President Thomas Jefferson who felt there should be a “high wall between church and state” in the support of Civil Rights of all religions. Consequently we support Virginia’s 1776 Religious Freedom law. – Religious Freedom in Virginia.

But this cannot be confused with the modern “Rights of Conscience” laws being brought forth in State Congressional Houses today. A similar law as vetoed in Arizona last year and we admire and respect the State Governor for standing up to bigotry and discrimination.  We hope the Governor of Arkansas will do the same when a similar bill comes up for confirmation. And we implore our own state of Virginia NOT to pass HOUSE BILL NO. 1414 Offered January 14, 2015.

As a spiritual organization we respect the beliefs of others, and we open our doors to all who enter in peace and compassion, regardless of race, color, creed, gender, religion or sexual identity. We welcome you with open arms and friendship. Continue reading

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Be careful where you step today, there are some potholes looking for unsuspecting victims. There’s a time and place for everything. It’s a good idea to read the signs before move into an area that might otherwise need to be avoided. Be in the here and now and pay attention to where you’re going and you’ll avoid the traps being laid by others.

Additional Insight:

It’s not a day to daydream and get lost in your thoughts. Be present in your day and pay attention to the details at hand. Whither by accident or on purpose someone has left a few potholes that can trip you up as you travel through your tasks. 

Misinformation and spin is a key component behind those trying to get what they want at your expense. Make sure you do your own research and check out the regulations and code before you start designing your plans. You’ll save yourself some trouble later on and even improve your reputation for being good at what you do.

Respect will get you through the challenge, but remember to respect yourself above all else. Don’t be rushed or pushed too quickly.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Wands

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Five of Wands

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Be careful how you use your intuition and magik. You might get exactly what you’re asking for and it may not be what you really want. Words and actions have energy to create. Be Mindful of your tone, your actions and your intent throughout the day to avoid conflict.

Additional Insight:

What you think, say and do creates energy. Make sure you know what you’re talking about before you pick a side. You can inspire a revolution, or work out a peace agreement. But what you do will create your future. Make sure you know what kind of tomorrow you’re going to walk through and that it’s really the one you want.

We all allow stress and anxiety to overcome our emotions and attitudes. But that’s the result of fear and worry from the unknown and that which we don’t understand. Trust in the flow of the Divine energy in your life and know you will be cared for and it’s going to be ok.

Relax and stop generating the negative. You’re not going to move things along any faster. All you’ll do is cause yourself to become sick and laid up for a few days feeling miserable.

Sometimes when we’re unsure of exactly what we want. Or when we are sure but we allow other influences to cloud our view; the Universe gives us a little nudge in the right direction. Go with the flow and stop working so hard to make things happen. They’re manifesting in the right time and place for your highest good. Be patient.

Let this overflow of abundance refill your passion and brighten the weekend with positive energy. Relax, let go of the stress and breathe! Your energy will nurture others and spread through waters to pay it forward.

Additional Insight:

The rewards for perseverance are finally coming in. Share the wealth by paying it forward and thanking those who were there for you. Even if it’s simply a message to let them know everything is going to be ok now. The relief will make them all feel better and feel excited about the shift in energy.

You can finally relax and catch up on sleep, smiles and relaxation. But don’t spend your rewards until you have them in hand. You’ve waited this long, you can wait a few more days. Timing is a key part of the prize, so be patient.

When you do receive the chalice of success, don’t gloat or otherwise be a bad winner. Be gracious and kind. Show your compassion for those who are still trying to keep their heads above water. There by the grace of the Divine Universe were you. And you know how it feels to grasp at straws and hope things will be ok.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Star

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - XVII The Star

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Don’t change who you are to satisfy those around you. Not in appearance or attitude. Their interest is fleeting and resides on shaky ground. Stand up for yourself and be the Star that shines because you are true to yourself. It takes much less work and effort to be yourself anyway. Be comfortable in your own skin and let your instincts guide your path. You’ll acquire accolades and that’s nice. But more importantly, you’ll gain the respect you deserve.

Additional Insight:

Being yourself is a lot of work. Being what others want you to be takes even more effort because it’s not part of your being. You have to think through everything, pause and take a double glance at how you respond or perceive what’s expected of you. And then worry if you got it right.

Why change who you are for the favor of someone who doesn’t care about the real you in the first place? It’s not worth the effort. You deserve to be loved and appreciated for who and what you are. If YOU don’t like something about yourself, than change it for YOU. If you want help changing something about yourself, then ask for help and support. But the only way to do it and succeed, is to make the changes you desire by doing it for YOU.

Trying to be what you’re not opens the door to being labeled fake, a fraud, a manipulator. It generates energy of mistrust and disdain. All of which you don’t need in your life. Shed the old skin and release the negative expectations. You’ll brighten the sky with your inner divine light and show the way for others to find themselves within their being. Continue reading

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

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - King of Pentacles: Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Stop focusing on the negative or worrying about what you’ll have to do if things don’t happen. Nothing is set in stone and there’s no reason to wait for the other shoe to drop. You’re creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You’ve won the little battles and forging ahead. All you need to do is be patient and allow everything to manifest in the right time and space. Stay Mindful and positive. Things are going to be fine.

Additional Insight:

The ships are on the move and getting closer to manifesting in your physical world. The energy has been sent on within the smoke signals and they have been received in the spiritual world. And no matter how much you’ve tried to sabotage your plans, you’ve managed to keep the messages and energy going in the right direction.

Have Faith and stop allowing the hope to fall into despair. Thinking the worst is going to take the positive energies you worked so hard on, to fade and transform. What you put out, you will bring back and attract to you. Stop it already! Geez!

Stop giving lip service to what you believe and start living it! Allow the Divine force in your life to take care of you as you are intended to be. It’s not easy waiting and trying to be patient. There are even lessons in that exercise to be learned and experienced. Spend some time meditating on what that lesson is for you and allow it to bring wisdom into your day. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Two of Wands – Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Two of Wands - Inverted

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Don’t try to read between the lines. If you want to know something ask someone who you know for sure has the answer. Have the guts to face the mystery head on and don’t listen to the rumors and innuendo. Walk away from the gossip mongers. You don’t need their negativity in your life.

Additional Insight:

Those spreading gossip are only looking at what’s in it for them. Be cautious of their stories. They’re either totally wrong and spreading lies that hurt the innocent. Or they’re manipulating the situation to gain position and status for their own favor.

For what purpose? To be the Town Crier? That’s not something to be respected. Spreading half-truths, or publicizing secrets or the confidence of someone is not honorable. It is underhanded and shows how easy you’d betray others for your own gains. That’s more despicable than admirable.

If you want to be looked up to, the most powerful ability you can hold is being trusted. Being the confidant of someone you care about no matter what the news or situation is where the real gift exists. When you’re trusted, others put their faith in you. They come to you for help, advice, or merely to have someone in their life they can trust and share things with.

That role is an important one in everyone’s life. We all need at least one person we can trust. If someone tries to spread gossip in your direction, you’re better off walking away. You don’t have time for these childish high school games. You have other things on your plate that are much more important and require more of your attention. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Three of Wands

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell - Three of Wands

The Steampunk Tarot by Aly Fell

Take advantage of the tools that exist around you and discover the hidden information. What you’re looking for will bring the assets needed to resolve circumstances and win the battle. Be patient, but be diligent in reviewing and revising your plan as needed. Everything is moving and changing, but being in flux is a good thing right now. Keep up on the latest intelligence, do the research and you’ll find the light of success is on your side.

Additional Insight:

Remain focused and keep an eye out for deceptions. Shed light on the situations you’re involved in and don’t rush through anything. Look closely at the fine print and make sure you have all the information necessary to get the best deal. Take advantage of all the tools at your disposal, there’s no need to wait to buy something you’re only going to use once or twice.  You’ll be able to configure what you need, when you need it and still be prepared for what may come.

Your strength comes through gathering information and putting the pieces together. Your ship is coming in, but you have to be prepared and ready for the opportunity as it arrives. Don’t get stranded with your cargo and no way to move it to safety. Do your research and discover your options. Dot the i’s and cross the t’s. Continue reading

Sunday Homily: Writing Your Abundance Check

wolfpackA New Moon Ritual

My friend Rev. Lyn Williams sends out a reminder every month on FB to Write Your Abundance Check.

I think many of us could use this, so I’d like to share it with you.  It’s a great way of putting your hopes, faith, dreams or desire for abundance into physical action.

I’m a firm believer that making a wish is great on a spiritual level. Asking for help to make life a little easier can have a great deal of influence in our lives. But only if we put some action behind it.

It reminds me of a story I think I’ve shared here before. But in case I haven’t, let me tell it again. Continue reading
