The Power of the Stars is Within

“Now let all rejoice. Seek the Light, that the power of the stars which is in you, may live.”
~ The Pistis Sophia

Dear reader, the above quote is from a wonderful book that I have just finished reading, called Jesus, Buddha, Krishna and Lao Tzu: The Parallel Sayings, by Richard Hooper.

This quote just sparked right out of the page into my mind, especially the part about “the power of the stars which is in you.”

May the power of the stars be alive in your mind!

With lots of love,
Teja

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May Your Light Shine!

 

May you feel your goodness.

May you practice loving kindness towards yourself.

May your weekend be blessed with peace, inspiration, and laughter.

May your light shine!

 

In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, “If anyone asks, “Where do you come from?” tell them, “We came from the light, from the place where the light came into being of its own accord.”

And, in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works…”

 

This weekend I will be busy reviewing the proof copy of my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life, so I will see you back here on Monday…

Happy Weekend to you!
Let your light shine!

A Practice for Activists

Are you an activist?

There are lots of people doing good works as many types of activists: political, social, environmental, animal, and so on. I salute you all! And if you are an activist, this post is for you…

If you are an activist of any kind, you probably spend some of your time watching the news and then posting on social media about all the terrible things that are happening. I know, I get it, we have a lot of really bad problems happening on this planet. And so I deeply appreciate those of you who are willing and able to be activists. I see you working for a better world, and this post is a suggestion of a practice for you to try (if you aren’t already doing this):

Each time you expose the darkness, be very conscious about it, and then spend at least as much time and energy focusing on the light. Imagine what you DO want to see happening, and visualize yourself in higher vibrations. Really see yourself holding the vision for the good things, for the positive, innovative solutions.

The world needs your light… your positivity!

So please don’t get stuck in the focus on the darkness! Expose the darkness as you feel called to, and then focus on the Light, the goodness, the positive visions!

Thank you for your good works on planet Earth.

I hope this post was helpful to you.

May All Beings Be Free of Suffering.
May All Beings Be Happy!

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May the Flowers Bring You Joy

 

May you appreciate the seasons of your life.

May you say yes to the light in many forms: sunlight, starlight, crystal light, and fireworks light.

May your weekend be blessed with enchanted moments.

May the flowers bring you joy.

 

As the season turns to muggy and buggy, I mean Summer, here in Indiana, I am appreciating the lightning bugs and the orange lilies blooming in many of the yards. This Summer I am looking forward to watching the fireworks over the river, and to eating lots of fresh corn on the cob!

What are you looking forward to in the coming months?

 

Happy Summer Solstice
(to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere!)

(And Happy Winter Solstice
to those in the Southern Hemisphere!)

Meditation to Get Beyond Irritation

Do you ever find yourself in a state of complete and utter irritation with everything?

The next time you notice yourself feeling irritated, try this simple meditation practice… Sit in a quiet place and close your eyes. Bring your attention to your breathing. You don’t need to try to make your breathing be a certain way. Simply witness the in-breath and witness the out-breath.

Next add a mantra or affirmation. For example, I think “Om Namah Shivaya” with the in-breath and again with the out-breath. You might want to think “I am Peace” with the in-breath, and “I am Love” with the out-breath… Or you could think “I am Love” with the in-breath and “I am Light” with the out-breath…

Sit and think your mantra or affirmation with the breath until you feel the irritations dissolving. It may take twenty minutes (or longer) to achieve a feeling of peace.

Let me know how it goes!

 

May All Beings Know Deep Peace.
