The Daily Motivator for Jan. 27th – Making the effort

Making the effort

When you don’t feel like making the effort, the thing that will help you more  than anything else is to go ahead and make that effort. Even when you are too  tired or too bored, too distracted or too dismayed, the way out is to get busy  and put forth effort.

Wishing for things to be better won’t make things better. What will make  things better is taking positive, focused action.

Making excuses won’t make things right. The way forward is to make a real  difference by making a real effort.

Just because it’s difficult, uncomfortable and inconvenient, doesn’t mean  it’s impossible. You have what it takes to take effective action, and that is a  powerfully positive thing to do.

Instead of wasting your priceless time with procrastination, make good use of  the time that’s now yours. Spend that time making a meaningful difference.

What you get out of life depends on what you get out of yourself. Make the  effort, again and again, and give much more beautiful and meaningful life to all  of life.

Goodbye to the Old and Hello To The New

I leave the old with a burst of song,

I recall the right and forgive the wrong,

I forget the things that binds me fast

To vain regrets of the year that’s past.

I have the strength to let go of your vain hold

For they are not worth grasping while the days grow old,

I dare go forth with purpose true.

To the unknown task of the year that’s new,

I help my brother and sister along the road,

I do their work and lift their load,

I add my gift to world’s good cheer,

For it is my will as well as the Goddess’

To have and to give a Happy New Year to one and all.

Crone’s Corner – Waking a Sleepy Resolution

Crone’s CornerWaking a Sleepy Resolution

Make a sleepy New Year’s resolution by rewording the intent and redirecting the energy toward the goal of your resolution.
With this reworded resolution in mind, light a red candle. Focus on your goal and the steps that will get you from point
A to point B. Visualize yourself completing the steps and your goal in the present tense. Repeat these or similar words:

This is my inspiration,
Aries’ Moon is my motivation.
The path to my goal has now begun.
As my will, this will be done!

After you have released the energy, you may extinguish the candle. On the next morning, relight your candle and focus
on your daily goal each day until the next Full Moon.

New Year’s Resolution Spell

New Year’s Resolution Spell

For this spell, choose a few goals that you want to accomplish; these may be related to work or your personal life. Keep them in your mind; with this spell, you will raise spiritual assistance in accomplishing your intentions. To start, you will need to gather four rocks that you’ve collected from a nearby “special place,” perhaps a park or your back yard. You will also need some unrefined salt. After the New Moon has begun, take the four rocks you have gathered and place them outside near your home in an undisturbed part of your yard. Lay down the rocks in a cross, one for each direction. Sprinkle the salt lightly over the four rocks, and toss the rest in the center. Visualize the goals you have set for yourself and say out loud what you hope to accomplish. Leave the rocks out until you have realized your aims.

Your Horoscope New Year’s Resolutions

These resolutions speak a powerful, positive language that our spiritual selves respond to, in accordance with what is best in us, and working hand in hand with our deeper purpose in life. Find out the affirming resolution for your sun-sign, here:
