Raccoons are indeed considered to be night varmints and scavengers. They can destroy property and be a real nuisance. However, spiritually the raccoon has a much more constructive significance and they are the perfect animal totem for Thanksgiving.
Traditionally, the raccoon, when it comes into your life, is referred to as “the one who carries the medicine of the protector of the underdog” and “the one who provides for the young, infirm and the elderly.” Because of its mask-like features, it is often unfairly referred to as The Masked Bandit, but when a raccoon comes into your space, you are being asked to contact your inner warrior, to become a protector and generous provider for those in need.

Orange soul colors are one of the most notably vibrant. They are exceptional survivors who frequently have huge emotional issues happening in their lives – not just for themselves, but also for close family members.
At the same time, “oranges” are one of the most daring soul colors in existence. They are adventurous spirits who won’t just go on a safari, but will try to get so close to a wild animal that they could count its teeth.
Oranges love to take risks. They can change course abruptly and love to dive into something they may think is important at the moment. They can at times be challenging to live with, as they like to be on the move and do not care for a quiet, normal existence. Oranges are not fond of doing any deep thinking and believe life is to be lived to the fullest. Read the rest of this entry »
Some spiritual seekers tend to be very keen on beating the drum of prosperity, and becoming fixated on the Law of Attraction and manifesting abundance, which is too often merely a thinly disguised obsession with material wealth and earthly comforts.
Most of us simply take too much for granted every day. We experience so many blessings of joy, beauty, forgiveness, protection and Divine grace, which we seldom acknowledge in our lives. We always have something to be grateful, or thankful for, no matter how difficult times may be. As a species we are very good at complaining about what we don’t have, but we seem to find it difficult to give thanks for what we do have. Read the rest of this entry »
Citrine, meaning “Lemon” in French, is a quartz crystal. Natural Citrine is pale yellow, to golden, to orange-brown, and often referred to as the “Merchant Stone”. Citrine is associated with the Sun, success and abundance. I call it my “prosperity enhancing aid”.
Citrine can be found in Brazil, Argentina, Burma, Madagascar, Scotland, Spain, Russia and Namibia, and long ago amongst certain cultures, Citrine was carried for protection against evil thoughts, and even snake venom.
You can wear Citrine as jewelry, to assist with psychic awareness and psychic protection. This quartz is also said to expand our spirit of generosity. Citrine, along with Topaz is a birthstone for those born November month. Read the rest of this entry »
I used to have the notion that the way we would as humans become attached or bonded to each other was through our unique fingerprints, and the way we fit as people. To me, it seemed inconceivable that two people could share anything in common if they did not get on, share the same interests, or have that enviable chemistry we so mistake for romantic love. In my experience, and through the experiences of others, I noted that most of us seemed to lapse into these easier sets of relationships – the ones that seemed effortless and spirited, and based on this – that empathy deepened and that relationships had a better quality due to this shared agreement.
To my chagrin and delight I was introduced to a more interesting notion of bonding – this one not through just the pure transference of personality, common interests or passions – but values, shared experience, and shared suffering. We still identify with each other, whether we know each other personally or not. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m sure you know some wonderful people that just seem to do or say the right thing at just the right time. It really makes you feel good to have friends that go out of their way to bring you some chicken noodle soup if they have heard you’re not feeling well. Those friends are like gems!
I love to do charity work. It makes my heart feel good to just give without wanting anything in return; just the giving is giving back to my soul that feeling of doing something good for another person. It just makes me feel like I’m fulfilling my life’s purpose to help people in any way I can.
It could be a kind word, or to give some insight or answers to an issue that can set them on the right life path, or maybe knitting a scarf for children hat have nothing warm to wear, because their parents can’t afford it. It gives me such a feeling of happiness that you just can’t get any other way. It makes you feel connected to the source of all that is good and right in this world. Read the rest of this entry »
In order to merely keep food on the table for this mob, the father and head of the household, a goldsmith by profession, worked almost 18 hours a day at his trade, as well as any other paying chore he could find in the neighborhood.
Despite their seemingly hopeless condition Albrecht and Albert, two of the elder children, had a dream. They both wanted to pursue their talent for art, but they were fully aware of the fact that their father would never be financially able to send either of them to the art academy.
After many long discussions at night, in their crowded bed, the two boys finally worked out a pact. They would toss a coin. The loser would go down into the nearby mines and, with his earnings, support his brother who would attended the academy. Read the rest of this entry »
When one door closes another one truly does open. Sometimes it’s the birth of a baby, or the beginning of a new relationship, or simply a new venture, discovery, or opportunity. Whatever it is, faith will give us what we need to keep ‘plucking along’.
Faith enables us to find new things, to give us something to look forward to. It also offers us the opportunity to give back, and contribute towards making humanity and our world a better place. To just do nothing is a complete waste of time and we are merely taking up space for no reason. So, we must keep going, even though things may seem to be at a standstill. You may be going through depression or whatever it may be, but it could also be a golden opportunity. Read the rest of this entry »
