Defining What You Believe

What Do I Believe?
A Student’s 1st Assignment

Before you can begin your spiritual journey; what ever that journey is, you have to know where you’re starting from. What do you believe and how does it relate to your spiritual path? Are you looking for a spiritual path, but don’t know which one fits your current beliefs? How are you going to assess where you are today with where you want to be, or where you’ve come from, if you don’t know what you believe today.

It’s easy to sit down and answer questions off the top of your head when talking with someone about what you believe. You jump from topic to topic and you may not even realize how the subjects are interconnected. You can give one description today and two weeks from now, you’ll have a slightly different description. And you won’t even realize you’ve altered your view or perception.

If you take on this assignment, you’ll see how much that ‘easy to answer’ scenario changes. When you’re writing those answers down, putting thought to paper you are forcing yourself to really think about what you believe. You’ll begin writing an answer to a question you were sure you knew, only to discover that you may not be so sure about it after all. It also forces you to connect the dots. You’ll find that as you’re writing an answer to one question, that might contradict your response to another previous question. And suddenly you have to re-think an entire subject. Continue reading

I Did It!

ididitPick Up Your Trophy Today!

Face the day with courage!
Face the day with determination!
Face the day with inspiration!
Face the day with “I’m Doing It!”

Make Today YOUR Day!
The only person you have to impress is yourself. Work on that by believing in you even when no one else does. Others will set limits on your dreams. They’ll place their fears of success and reaching for the starts upon you and try to contain you dreams. You can choose to allow what they call “practical” suggestions and council to limit your ceiling. Or you can choose to go outside the boundaries and look up at the stars where the only limitation is your belief in self.

If you don’t set your ambitions high, when you do yourself a disservice. You put your abilities and imagination in a box, packed away and rarely let them out to shine. But when you unpack the box and let your talents out to shine; you can become the light that beacons others to take notice. Make sure you’re prepared when they do and luck will fall on your path of hard work.

Remember that luck is nothing more than “Preparedness meeting Opportunity”. simply having the vision, the imagination and raw talent will only get you so far. All talents take time and attention through practice, learning new things that can expand your perspectives and inspire your next steps. Work on your dreams and with each phase you complete that moves you up to the stars, will allow you to pick up your trophy and be proud of yourself! Nothing can motive you more, than celebrating the little accomplishments that get you closer to that dream.

Always Believe In Yourself, You’re Magik Working On A Miracle;
And you can and will make it happen!

Here are some things that can help you keep yourself inspired to dream and mostly to work on that dream.

The Spring’s Haven Divination House Journal #3

Planning The Divination House

The Inspiration For Our House

Planning Stages

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about the portable Divination House. The last post was back in August 2012 actually. But gathering ideas for the design and building have continued.

After talking to a few tiny house builders we have expanded our concepts for the design. How do you transport a ‘tree’ house to a renfare and provide yourself space to stay over the weekend to limit expenses? Doing that meant drastically redesigning the tree house and the more we thought and discussed what could and couldn’t be done; the more it looked like the tree wasn’t going to satisfy both needs. It’s one or the other, but not both.

That brought up the next idea. Using the tree house for business, and a portable tiny house for everything else. Double the expense. Oh boy. Well, that’s what dreams are all about. Having your cake and eating it too! Continue reading

The Dream Continues

Planning The Divination House

The Inspiration For Our House

So today I started thinking about the practical approach to the house, traveling for Renfaires and other similar gatherings around the country. Or at the very least the east coast.

Now I know about a number of faires here on our side of the U.S. But what I was thinking about were the practical aspects of the house.

What if we need a place to stay. Do we pull the tree house behind an RV or our truck? If we use the truck do we rent a hotel room? Or do we expand the tree house to accommodate some modern facilities, such as a kitchen and bath. Continue reading

It’s Nice To Have Dreams – Dreams Inspire, Empower and Create Hope –
Give Yourself Permission To Dream!
~ Springwolf

Our Humble Dream

On Sunday July 29th I posted a Sunday Homily “It’s Nice To Have Dreams“, concerning the power of having dreams to reach for and aspire to. In the Homily I mentioned “One of  my newest dreams was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook. I would like to build this on our utility trailer, haul it to the Renfaire and use it as a divination house. Now wouldn’t that be absolutely awesome?!”

We keep talking about our dream in our family and everyone keeps coming up with great ideas. Including our 9 year old son. Who suggested we make a post on our blog to track the ideas and share them with our family and friends. He said “If we think about it and dream about it and that adds energy to making it real, then wouldn’t more people thinking about it add even more energy?” Well, ok; out of the mouths of babes!

So we’re putting his suggestion into practice. We’ll be updating this post from time to time adding our new ideas and progress to making this dream a reality. 

Spring’s Haven Divination House
It’s Good To Have Dreams

When I first had this idea, I shared the vision with my husband who immediately started designing it in his head. When you share your dream with others and they support your vision, the exchange and sharing of ideas can add to the creation and manifestation of that dream. Not to mention, you can come up with some great additions to add details to your vision! Continue reading

Sunday’s Homily: “All Paths Lead to the Same Destination”

Thoughts On: “All Paths Lead to the Same Destination”

The Divine WithinEarlier today that question was posed on an IMM forum that I’m a member of. My initial response was:

I think everyone has their own view about what that destination is, but I think it’s a true statement. I don’t believe in “God” or “heaven”. So when I say it’s the same destination I think of the Divine Universal Consciousness.

From a non-pagan perspective a Catholic friend of mine said to me once “If God is truly the All; than he/she/it has the ability to be all things to all people. God can be anything, anywhere, anytime and in anyplace.”

Perhaps we all believe in the same thing, but we simply have different names for it. But how it’s applied is still about your own personal perspective from belief and experience.

As the discussion emerged it was clear that there are many views on the phrase and each one seemed to have a strong individualistic perspective that, in some cases, didn’t allow for flexibility. In other words, if you didn’t hold the understanding behind the right path, you could not reach the ultimate destination. So does that mean that not all paths lead to same destination? Or does that mean only certain paths have the key through the Divine doorway? Continue reading
