Affirmations For Change

Tribal Wolf Patterns Colored by SpringwolfCreating Positive Thought Patterns

We all set up recurring thought patterns in our subconscious that affect how we live our life. These patterns could be self doubt, a lack of confidence, or emotional perspectives based on how you interact with others. These thoughts can come from societies preconceived notions about the kind of person you are, from family and friends, and from your own views about situations you have experienced in your life.

Allowing these thought patterns to reside in your subconscious, allows them to dictate your choices in life, which at times can be detrimental to self-growth and enlightenment.

One way to help bring about change in your life is to focus on replacing negative thinking with positive thinking through affirmations. Instead of “I hate being fat” for instance, start telling yourself “I am beautiful” or “I am working to become the healthy person I want to be”.

Affirmations are a way of reprogramming the subconscious to think differently and to automatically react in a more positive way when trigger situations occur in your life. Continue reading

Turn The Frown Upside Down

“Happy Wolf” – Photographer Unknown

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

In times of stress and anxiety it’s easy for people to become overwhelmed with their own emotions of fear or sadness. Worry may dominate your thoughts from morning to night. Fear can take hold and change your focus from what you want to accomplish in a day, to pulling in more fear and anxiety. It becomes a snowball that grows and grows until it seems to overwhelm everything in your life.

We all go through it. We all get caught up in the latest bad news. But sometimes it seems there’s nothing good to see anymore and everything is just getting worse and worse. It’s hard to break that cycle at times, and that’s when we need to ask for help. There’s nothing wrong with talking to someone about that downward spiral of emotions. Try to remember “that feelings are real but they aren’t reality” (Dan Harmon, 2017 – This is a great story reported in the Washington Post about author Dan Harmon’s twitter response to a fan. It’s really worth the read!) Continue reading

When Crow, Raven, Rook and Jackdaws Come To Visit

Sometimes when we are in an intuitive state, something will grab our attention to add to the information we seek. This happened to me on August 14th, 2014 while I was doing my morning work. Part of which includes pulling today’s Tarot Meditation card and divining a message.

On that day I typed a line “Why do you insist on focusing on the worst case scenario“, the digital photo album that sits next to my pc popped up the picture of the crow shown below and he grabbed my attention. Letting me know there’s more to this statement than we may realize.

If you’ve been following along with us over the past few months, you know that Crow Magik has been working fairly hard lately in our little part of the world. So much so that you can’t help but notice their presence.

Crows and their cousin the Raven are the messengers of change and transition. But that’s not always bad. Often times transition brings good things that we need and maybe even things we’ve been asking for. Even though we as humans often have a hard time with change, it’s the only constant in the Universe. It cannot be avoided.

Crows and Ravens bring us this message and remind us we are moving and our actions dictate the direction of that movement. They let us know things are in transition and now is the time to be Mindful of our thoughts, communications and actions. What we think, say or do will impact the direction of our movement and if we move forward with positive action, or fall backward and repeat old negative patterns. They signal that change is occurring and only we can create the direction of that change, forward.  Continue reading

We Are All InterConnected

How Wolves Change Rivers

As humans we know that Apex predators, such as ourselves, can adversely affect the world in which we live in. Over hunting, over fishing and destruction of our natural resources have put humankind on a stopwatch that counts down to our own extinction. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Have a look at this amazing video on The National Geographic website, showing how one species can have a massive cascading effect on the entire ecosystem in which it lives… and even alter the geography of the area. All for the betterment of the area and those in it.

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

Knave of Cups - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Get your tail moving and fan the wind of change. You’re the only one who can cast away the gloom and doom. If you want sunny skies, than allow your self to be the light that shines for others. Dread and anxiety will only keep you in the dark and things are not as bad as you think they are. So smile, it’s not only good for you; it’s contagious too.


Additional Insight:

Those around you key their emotions for the day, from you. If you’re stressed and filled with anxiety, you will create that environment around you and infect everyone who crosses your path. Don’t be the dreaded virus that everyone wants to stay away from.

Instead, look around you and find the beautiful things that no one else notices. And share their beauty like a beacon of uplifting light. Even the cloudy skies have elements of beauty in the way they move, or the way they shadow your eyes from the blaring sun. Ever drive in the morning due east when the sun rise blinds you from seeing the road? Even the clouds can have their benefits.

But like all things, the world changes and moves on. You can allow the clouds of despair to hold you back, fighting the flow of change to a better day. Or you can trick yourself into a smile and share the hope and joy with those who cross your path.  You may even trick yourself into a good mood.

Those “Good vibrations” (even if you’re only pretending) help you to re-energize, keep you going with hope and feed the creative ideas that swirl round within you. Let them shine today and you’ll be so surprise at how easy things will go for you. It’s a new day of the rest of your life. Take it on with excitement and confidence that you’re moving forward! Be the cure for the blues that everyone wants to have around.

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

Six of Wands: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Your creative energy can manifest the strangest things, but often times they are exactly what you need at the moment. Your unique humor can cause others to laugh and help them through troubled times, but it also helps you as well. Allow your compassion and frivolity to light the darkness and help others find their way out of the shadows and from under the mushrooms.


Additional Insight:

Your spiritual beliefs and unique humor can often carry you through times of trials and help you to handle change and transition. Share that ability to assist others who do not have the same perspective. Not everyone has that inner strength and many fall into deep depression when troubles occur or a loss is experienced. It doesn’t matter if that change is the loss of a job, relationship, friend, pet or relative. The end of something tangible has equal emotional sorrow as those things that are intangible.

You can aid them in not falling too far into the depths of despair with your tempered humor and compassionate attention. Sometimes looking at the silver lining is equally as important as feeling sorrow and letting it out.

Too much of anything isn’t good for anyone. Holding sadness in can fester and cause more harm than good. Letting sadness rule your life isn’t a positive expression of emotion either. Ensuring that one expresses a balanced approach to their emotions allows one to grieve over things or people lost; and yet still maintain a sense of emotional stability.

It’s never easy losing someone or something that was important to you. But the only real constant in life is that things change. Fight that change and you’ll lose the battle and miss the chance to find love or fulfillment in the future. Accept that things change for a reason and celebrate what they brought to you in your life and you can focus on the good things in life and be open to new lessons and experiences it has to offer you.

Everyone needs a little encouragement, a little face to face confirmation to see a smile or to know someone else let’s them know “It really will be ok”.  Sometimes a person simply wants someone to listen. A face to face moment of communication, where compassion can be seen. That smile or the look of compassionate eyes can go a long way to helping them make it through yet another issue. It’s amazing how much a kind word or simple smile can lift someone out of their fear and hopelessness.

Successful Changes

Change Happens, Sometimes For The Better

It’s been an amazingly busy week on all fronts in my life. It seems when you make a little change that releases a negative anchor so many things are freed and begin to move forward. Even things that have nothing to do with the anchor in the first place.

The flow of energy in and around our lives can touch and connect to so many other things we never expect. We talk about it, we may even know it. But sometimes we don’t really acknowledge it until it happens on a personal level and we sit back and say “Wow”.
