My mother and brother flew in from FL this past weekend. To have the closest of my family see where we live and how satisfying our lives have been since we moved from FL, gave me a sense that another circle has come to a close. An easiness comes with the special people that have known us our entire lives. This is something I will always miss about not being near my own tiny family. Regardless of how much we change, the ones we grew up with remember us in ways that no one else ever will. We can look at each other knowingly and marvel at how we have grown. We can look at each other fondly and recount memories that seem to surface only in each other's presence. Thank you Mom and Brian, for your love and laughter, and for seeing me in ways I forget to see myself.
And there is one more reason to celebrate coming full circle. This week is Wander Wonder Discover's 2nd anniversary. My deepest gratitude goes to you this week, for seeing me, encouraging me, and gifting me with your presence in these pages and in yours. Because of you, I have sought and found the fearlessness needed to live a creative, passionate and abundant life. To write what I need to write, temper what I need to temper, and to reflect carefully and honestly, on my forever, sometimes wandering, search for meaning in "Self". With heart, mind and soul, I thank you.
What I am giving away this week is a spot in Pixie Campbell's next Soul Lodge e-course: Gold Mining the Shadows with Black Panther. Please click the link for details. The session will start next Monday and runs 5 weeks.
"The watery West and lunar Panther have aligned to help us:
- Infuse our spirits with the Moon's feminine energies
- Honor our intuition and the subtler aspects of the heroic quest
- Acknowledge the innate seer within
- Release confining, restrictive models and patterns born of repression
- Reclaim power lost during childhood wounding
- Connect with the Thunderbeings- the Spirits of the Storms, to embrace the necessary polarity of light and dark
- Transmute negative energy: re-membering the positive in all that lies underneath the light of consciousness
- Allow shadow to become a Fertile Well of Creativity
Special guests will be sharing tools for diving into the darker aspects with grace and support by your side."
I will be taking this course as well and would love for you to join me. If you are interested in entering, please leave me a comment telling me what has come full circle for you recently. I will randomly choose and announce a winner this Friday, October 5th.
Welcome beautiful October and much love to all of you my friends
p.s. I have been listening to the new Mumford and Sons' Babel, over and over again...If you haven't heard it yet, here is a sliver....
