I was asked an interesting question today; “Where can I find spirituality in everyday life?”
The question took me a little bit by surprise and then I remembered that not everyone has the same frame of reference that I have. It’s neither better nor worse than anyone else’s, it’s just different.
I see spirituality everywhere and in everything. I have the advantage of living in a metaphysical world and studying the beautiful, arcane subjects that have been the passion of my life. I also have the advantage of knowing that I’ve lived more of my life than I have ahead of me. This gives me a perspective that enhances the landscape greatly.
There’s more to it than that, though.
Our ancestors saw spirituality in everything they did. They saw the divine in the earth, the products of the earth, the planets and stars, in every color, breeze, cloud and creature. Even the ideas that sprung from their imaginations were a direct connection to a divine mind, inspiring them to create for the good of all.
Somewhere along the line, we lost our connection to the daily wonder of living. This is certainly not true for everybody, but I believe for a great majority of our culture, the moment to moment magic of existence is elusive.
For those of you seeking more, I suggest looking to an archaic way of looking at life and the world around us.
For example, the yew tree was sacred to many groups of people for a good reason. In the old Nordic culture, Yggdrasil, the world tree, was considered to be a yew, a form of coniferous tree. It was on this tree that Odin sacrificed himself, so that human beings could receive the runes.
From the massive root structure of Yggdrasil to its lofty branches, it encompassed all that existed.
If you’ve never seen a full grown yew, use your favorite search engine and marvel at the magnificence of this tree. Its massive trunk connects to huge roots that spread out and encompass the surrounding earth. Its branches reach into the sky as if trying to hold up the firmament itself. Add to that the fact that the resin and needles are toxic and can cause hallucinations and you have the very description of a plant that seems to connect directly to the divine.
The Druids and other ancients revered the mighty oaks, gigantic guardians of the forests, within which lived the flora and fauna of both reality and myth.
Everything in nature had a purpose and everything had a connection to the multifaceted essence of the divine spirit. This included those things that we don’t necessarily like, but have to endure, including harsh weather, predators and illness.
The ancient Egyptians worshiped the sun as the embodiment of deity and never doubted their connection to spirit, from sunrise to sunset. Their wonder would only continue as the stars came out, lamps hung by ancestors to give hope in the night, as the moon with all its mysteries glowed in the indigo darkness, evidence of the power of the divine force.
From the winds that blow every direction, to the rains that quench our thirst, to the moment to moment moving of our planet in space, that which we call time, we are surrounded by nature and that means we are surrounded by spirit and our spirituality.
It’s impossible to separate ourselves from the reality of being spiritual beings on this highly spiritualized planet. Nature, in all its magnificence, is the very definition of the divine will, manifested as reality.
All it takes is a moment to look around and realize how blessed we are. We have family and friends, consciousness and will, determination and, at times, frustration. It’s this frustration we face that gives us the drive we need to search for more and to find that which can make our lives fuller. If that isn’t a manifestation of spirituality, then nothing is.
We are never alone, nor are we ever separated from that which we call spirit. This is something our ancestors knew and we can know it as concretely they did. All it takes is a little mental tweaking.
Pick up a pine cone and find the spiral that it hides. Smell a rose. Touch a tulip’s petal; or simply watch a cloud as it morphs into phantasms that eventually fade away to nothing. Know yourself. These are simple ways to connect with and rediscover the face of spirit.
Until next week, I wish you all peace, love and the certainty of your connection with everything that is.

Hello, my friends! I am re-running this article I wrote about my Dad last year. Today is the one year anniversary of his passing and I can' think of a better way to honor him than to share his message of positive thinking and unconditional love.
My Dad is the luckiest person I know. When he walks into a casino the slot machines absolutely beg to give him money. He will walk out with several hundred dollars more than he started with every time! Once, when I was a kid he won a raffle for a $500 shopping spree in the grocery store. Another time he entered a raffle for a boat, and walked away with it! He has had a lifetime of friends who love him and would do anything for him.
On family vacations it did not matter how far away we were from home, he always ran into someone who knew him and was happy to see him. I have often asked myself why he seems to attract so many lucky experiences. I am pretty sure that it is because of his attitude. He is one of the most positive and unconditionally loving people I have ever known. He always looks on the bright side, thinks the best of people, expects that everything will turn out fine, and is grateful and generous.
When I think about luck and energy I think about how we attract to us the same energy we put out. So if you are feeling desperate about money, you are putting out a feeling of desperation and lack, so that is what you get back. Luck comes from our Solar Plexus Chakra. When you have confidence in yourself and your ability to bring good things into your life, you attract lucky (synchronistic) experiences. There are several things you can do to make your Solar Plexus shine like a bright sun, attracting prosperity and synchronistic experiences.
First off it is very important to be grateful for what you have right now, in this moment. Make a gratitude list everyday. Write down 10 things you are grateful for. It can be small things like your morning coffee, a sunny day, or some time to yourself. It can also be bigger things like your family, home and pets. When you show gratitude you are telling the Universe that you are prosperous and attract more of the same.
The other thing you need to do to attract luck into your life is trust yourself. When you have confidence in yourself and your decisions you strengthen your Solar Plexus. The more trust you have in yourself the higher your energetic vibration, the higher your vibration, the more synchronistic events you attract. Make a conscious effort to trust your gut feelings, practice going with your first instinct when making decisions.
I believe that luck comes from inside us. When we practice having a loving and grateful attitude like my Dad, we attract more of the same into our lives!

Turtle spitting up energy bubbles while allowing the woman to catch them. She tosses them to her friend to tank the car so that it may fly through the air at a very fast speed. After the bubbles fill the tank, the turtles will join them in the car to visit a nearby galaxy. The turtles and the couple love this method of travel, it saves them quite a bit of travel time. This card calls for you to come together with others on a project or idea you have in order to manifest it much faster.
