Today’s Number: 444

444th Post On Springwolf Reflections

444th Post On Springwolf Reflections

Reflections Hits 444 Posts

The number 4 has always been significant in my life and over time it has come to be my lucky number, as well as, my favorite number. So today when I posted the Daily Tarot Meditation message and noticed the next post would be the 444th here on Springwolf Reflections, I took notice.

This post..this one right here..is the 444th Post I’ve made on my new blog since it began February 1st, 2012. Yeah!! That deserved some type of celebration! And it’s a good time to show how we can use numerology in our every day lives.

Numbers like this don’t have to represent something to the world. Such as the date 12/12/12; December 12, 2012. They can be any number, or series of numbers that gain your attention or hold special meaning to you. In my case, that special number is 4. Which has corresponded to things like the time I was born, 4:48am. The birth of my son on the 4th at 6:45pm. Continue reading

Thank Yourself Too!

proverb

You can read all the graphics with wise statements, fine sayings, great proverbs. But they don’t mean anything unless you put their words to meaning in your life. When you do, don’t thank the author. Rather thank yourself. You made the choice to make a difference in your own life. That takes courage, effort, work and perseverance. Shouldn’t you thank yourself for that kind of self-love?

Soul Mates, Twin Souls & Karmic Relationships – Updated

Venus Love

Spiritual Relationships Revisited

On Monday night (May 14, 2012), Paul Cagle, Sushi and I sat at our round table for The Ænigma Project and held a discussion about Soul Mates. The next day I wrote a follow up article that covered the topics we discussed and the Pagan Metaphysical approach to what these relationships are and what they mean to us.

Some time between then and now, that article became corrupted on the server, with bits and pieces missing. I’m not sure when that occurred, but thankfully I had the original article on a back up where I could recover it. Thanks to my friend Myranda for bringing the corrupted issue to my attention!

The article has been recovered and posted, as well as tweaked with a few cosmetic updates -> Soul Mates, Twin Souls & Karmic Relationships – Updated.

If you missed the original airing of the show you can still listen to this episode on The Ænigma Project’s Blog. Or on the show’s broadcast Archives on Tenacity Radio – 2012-05-14- Soul-Mates

The History of Yule

The Winter Solstice
By SpringWolf, D.D., Ph.D.

The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year and the beginning of Winter. In simple terms it is one of two points on the ecliptic at which the sun is overhead at the tropic of Capricorn, when the Sun is at its southern most point for those in the Northern Hemisphere.

“The earliest people on Earth knew that the sun’s path across the sky, the length of daylight, and the location of the sunrise and sunset all shifted in a regular way throughout the year. They built monuments such as Stonehenge in England and Machu Picchu in Peru to follow the sun’s yearly progress.”
Deborah Byrd

The Winter Solstice has marked the beginning of winter and provided a point in time where homes and communities needed to be prepared and ready for the barren cold months. For some it designated the official end of the harvest season. For others it marks a time of spiritual celebration. And for others it’s nothing more than an astronomical occurrence and scientific event. But to Pagans, it marks the beginning of the 12 Days of Yule and time to honor the Triple Goddess and rebirth of the God. Continue reading

Help Victims Of Newtown, Connecticut

Funeral Protests Planned By Hate Group

I learned this evening that the hate group “Westboro Baptist Church” (not that I think you can call these people a church) has released information that they are planning to picket the funerals of the victims of Friday’s tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Everyone here at Spring’s Haven denounces these hateful insensitive actions and we ask for compassion as this community grieves.

Even members of Anonymous have begun an Operation against the Church to discourage them from protesting at the school and compounding the misery already experienced by Newtown residents.

There are several things you can do to help stop this devastating action to inflict more pain on these parents, families and friends of these precious victims.

  1. If you live near Newtown, Connecticut organize a “Human Wall” to peacefully block this hate group from getting anywhere near these funerals. Efforts like this have been successful in the past (Huffington Post) and have overshadowed the hate from this group.
  2. Sign a petition on Whitehouse.gov to Legally recognize Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.
  3. Visit CNN to find out how you can provide help for the community of Newtown. They have a great list of organizations who are sharing a wide range of support to families and the community in general.
  4. Share these efforts with others and spread the news!

This hate group must not be allowed to inflict their ignorant bigotry and hate on this community. They have already suffered so much and no one should remain silent and allow this to happen. Please help provide your peaceful support to these efforts.

Help Us Help Others – Update

Help Us Grow Our Services
To Help Those In Need

Spring’s Haven Summer Campaign

Over the summer we held a fund raising campaign to Help Us Help Others in need. We began our campaign on August 3rd and it ran through to Samhain on October 31st. We focused on requests we received from people who are shut-in at home due to illness or tragedy, as well as, military personnel who are looking for someone to talk to and who holds the same spiritual beliefs.

We shared A Story of Hope and A Smile Can Help Someone Survive to share how our efforts will help those we have heard from.

Our campaign was a success and we couldn’t say Thank you enough to our sponsors for their generosity!. We raised enough to purchase 1 ipad and expand our services for digital face to face consultations and counseling. We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful friends who supported our effort!

Prayers & Sympathies To Newtown, Connecticut

wolfangelOur Deepest Sympathies To The Community Of Newtown, Connecticut

Our hearts and prayers go out to the families, friends and the community of the  Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel over the tragic loss of so many young innocent lives.  Our sympathies, love and support we send out to all families and friends of those have been taken from this world too soon. We pray that the GreatSpirits welcome them with love and compassion. And that each and everyone touched by this devastating tragedy is illuminated and comforted in Divine Light. May you find the strength to endure and live on to hold their memories in your hearts.

I hope the following articles help those looking for ways to cope:
1. When Tragedy Strikes: When Bad Things Happen To Good People
2. Dealing With Trials and Grief

Today is December 12, 2012 – Does It Mean Anything?

12-12Today Is 12/12/12

Today even Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson got into the excitement on Twitter. At 12:12 he sent a tweet:
@neiltyson If you happen to enjoy the uniqueness of 12h 12m 12s 12/12/12, then don’t forget 12h 12m 13s 12/12/12. It’s just as rare.
He timed his tweet pretty well too. It was sent at 12h:12m:13s on 12/12/12. Truth be told, I started writing this post at 12:12, and thus the publish date/time looks pretty good too.  😉

And he wasn’t the only one marking the occasion. Our local NBC News station here in Richmond rang in the moment with party horns and cheers. For them it was 12:12:12: on the 12/12/12 on NBC12. You can’t make this stuff up people.
@AndrewFreiden Wish you were here!!! pic.twitter.com/nyBOe62w.

For many this unique occurrence was simply a good time to break the work or school day up and have a little fun. The repeated pattern is cute, unique and it won’t happen again for 89 years.  For others who believe in Numerology, it’s a time to mark the occasion with spiritual energy, cosmic interpretation or psychic prophecy.
