Daily Inspiration:  The Phoenix Rising from the Ashes of Ash Wednesday by Mary Woods

The Christian celebration of Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a time of fasting before Easter.  Historically, Lenten fasting became mandatory, especially abstinence from eating     meat.  The word “carnival” comes from an old Italian word that means “go without meat”.
Festivals like Mardi Gras sprang up as a means to prepare for the coming times of self-denial.

While Lent has been seen as a time of sacrifice or the giving up of something desirable, it can
also be an opportunity to give up an unhealthy habit or negative pattern in our lives;
We can choose to give up attack thoughts toward ourselves and others.
We can choose to let go feelings of guilt and self-judgment.
We can choose to give up all those self-defeating and self-sabotaging patterns in our life;
negative thinking, complaining, arguing, resentments, criticisms, jealousies, and anger.
We can choose to give up all those unhealthy relationships we may have with verbally abusive
people, junk food, alcohol, drugs, nicotine, and other addictions that control us and take our power.
We can choose to give up everything that could hurt us.

Lent is a word that comes from the Middle English word “lente” which means “springtime”.
As we do our spring cleaning to let go of the old and make room for the new, we can be like the
mystical bird, the Phoenix rising from the ashes of the old paradigm.  We can release the belief
in “sacrifice”, because we are not giving up anything truly valuable, only removing the blocks and limitations, so that we may awaken to the resurrected child of God we truly are.

“Love Is The Message…Pass It Around”

With Love, Mary

Energy of the Day 2-10-2016

I drew this graphic originally for a Valentine card. It best describes the heart of the matter! We are sometimes called the "Rainbow Warriors" and the "Tribe of Many Colors", yet we are all together in this circle of life, where love is really what makes the world go round. Since ideas are strengthened by sharing, this is the message we want to pass around.

Daily Inspiration: Mardi Gras by Mary Woods

Tuesday, February 9, 2016 is Mardi Gras, which means Fat Tuesday in French, and is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday, as the last fling prior to the 40 days of Lent, which proceed Easter. Also known as Shrove Tuesday in England, Mardi Gras sprang up throughout parts of Europe as a means to prepare for the coming time of self-denial, by the eating of rich food that wouldn’t be used during Lent.

A weekend long carnival and parade celebrated annually in New Orleans, Mardi Gras is celebrated with costumes, masks, beads, coins, and the crowning of a King and Queen. The colors are symbolic; purple represents justice, green for faith, and gold for power. Instead of being a time of debauchery, Mardi Gras can be seen as a joyful appreciation for all the abundance in our lives and a chance to bring some fun and festivities to celebrate.
