In less than two hours, the world changed forever. Thousands of people died, the economy was shattered, and the most powerful nation in the world was brought to a standstill, all because a few politically and religiously intolerant men didn’t like the American lifestyle.There is perhaps no phenomenon which contains so much destructive feelings as moral indignation which permits envy or hate to be acted out under the guise of virtue.
Labor Day is a perfect time to share some positive and powerful job Shui. This tradition maintains that you should never let your files be ‘stepped’ on or put on the floor. According to these ancient rules of order, ‘stepping’ on your files creates a negative energy that will then adversely affect your job ‘luck.’ Important files should be kept in order and positioned to the left of the desk so that your labor will reflect your purpose and your passion.

On maybe you’d like to call on one to make your wishes come true. Author and angel historian JoAnn Cornug shares that Angel Xexor is your ally in bringing magic and manifestation to whatever you wish. Be specific with what you want when you call on him and he will answer, especially if you call this way: ‘I am a witness to God’s Miracle every instant of every day.’ Invoke Xexor three times before saying this prayer and then be careful what you wish for, because now it’s coming true.

Wheel of Fortune
Monday, Aug 19th, 2013
The central theme of what is traditionally called the Wheel of Fortune card is cyclical change. The Wheel keeps on rolling, churning events in a ceaseless progression of ups and downs, either way freeing us from the past. No one can escape its cyclical action, which can feel somewhat terrifying — no matter whether we are rising or falling. When one is balanced on top there is a moment of crystal clarity, but the only part of the Wheel not going up and down is the hub, which is your eternal Self, the Source of Freedom.
Every one of us will occupy all the points on the wheel at some time or another. The cycle of the wheel is its lesson — and we can learn to take comfort in it (as we do when we celebrate our birthday). If you don’t like the look of things right now, just wait — things will change. Of course, if you do like the look of things right now, enjoy it while it lasts, because that will change too!
Don’t Lose Your Pet — Register Their Microchip!
Microchipping pets is at an all-time high. But this little act of kindness is meaningless if the chip is not registered – and if the owner doesn’t keep information up-to-date.
Pet owners are usually surprised to learn that one in every three pets is lost in its lifetime. In the past five years alone, more than 3 million lost cats and more than 700,000 lost dogs were never reunited with their owners. Sad story after sad story shows that a microchip itself isn’t enough; microchips must be registered, and contact information kept current, to increase the chances of being reunited with a lost pet.
To help pet parents manage their pets’ microchips, the Found Animal Foundation just launched a new microchip registry, Found.org. This free registry which takes advantage of electronic media will revolutionized the way pets are reunited with their families.
One of the best parts about the Found.org microchip registry is that it is fully automated. Thus, pet owners are immediately notified if their pet has been found via texts, emails and calls. The messages also inform pet owners how and where to pick-up their pets. The alerts continue for four days unless the pet is picked-up sooner. And since millions of pets go missing every year, this registry will undoubtedly bring countless moments of joy when a lost pet is recovered. And for most pet owners, any added level of protection contributes to peace of mind.
The Found Animal Foundation along with the City of Los Angeles also recently declared June, Microchip Month, and they both hope that through the new registry, public outreach, discounted – and sometimes even free – microchipping that there will be more lost pet stories with happy, rather than sad, endings. The Found Animal Foundation also provides low-cost microchips and scanners to shelters, clinics and veterinarians across the country, all in an effort to make microchipping, registering animals and reuniting lost pets with their families faster and easier. That is good news for all parties involved and this multi-pronged effort will undoubtedly lead to fewer euthanized animals. So, three cheers to the Found Animal Foundation and their new registry — and to all of the future happy endings!
One of the most important skills you will ever learn in your life is learning which questions to ask and when to ask them.
You will never learn how to do much of anything in your life if you do not learn how to ask questions, and not only that, but to question the answers you get in return.
For instance, “I want to learn about wicca,” is not a question. It is a
“Teach me about wicca,” is also not a question. It is a command, even if you add the word please.
Think about what you really want to ask. “Can you teach me about wicca?”
Ok, you’re getting closer to the question you really want answered. “Will you teach me about wicca?”
Even closer, but the topic at hand is a large one.
Look for where you actually want to start learning.
Good questions to start working with are “What makes wicca different from other paths?” or perhaps, “What is the first thing I should learn to start my journey of learning about wicca?”
These last two questions are good questions because they are specific and give the person you are talking with an idea of what you are actually interested in learning.
Here’s another example.
I want to learn how to bake bread.
First of all I find someone that knows how (the right person).
Then I wait until they have the time to help me and a place ready to show me how to bake bread.
I try to read up a little ahead of time if I can and show up well rested and
ready to learn hopefully without any preconceptions (the right time).
Now I could ask them what the chemical structure of bread is, or why it browns when it bakes or what type of butter to use on it, but none of these are very good questions to help me towards my goal of learning how to bake bread.
True it might be useful information, but I can always learn the answers to those questions later once I have learned the basics.
So my first questions are, “What are the ingredients we use?” and “How do we start?,” two specific and useful questions.
A good question asked at the right time to the right person helps the person answering it almost as much as it helps the person asking it.
If the person you are asking questions to has no idea of your level of knowledge of the subject or your specific area of interest at the moment they cannot help you nearly as well as they could if they knew these things.
Good questions are one way of helping a person understand what you want to know and what level of difficulty you want it explained at.
