Giddy UP !!
How is everyone faring post Chinese New Year?
I went to a water blessing ,shamanic healing ceremony last night ~Held by the fabulous Julia & Tony from Scared Familiar Such strong Medicine! All that were present were blissed & blessed with their amazing Gift. I am fortunate to count Julia & Tony as my friends. Their innate wisdom and medicine gift they have to share is truly magical. Its a honour to be part of their Clan.
If you have never experienced Sacred Familiar's work. I encourage you to pop on over and have a look at the website. (Click on Link to go to website)
The last 2 years featured quite strongly in the journey for me :deep water energy ,combined with the farewell of the water snake who graciously made a appearance and farewelled us gently and beautifully. The lessons and gifts she brought were amazing and her wisdom was one of release, rebirthing and honoring the process. Manifestations of the past dissipated as the wise woman
An Cailleach helped with the final stage's of the journey.
We welcomed in the new with Love and grace in our hearts, and sent it back out to complete the circle.
How much I released is anyones guess. I also had insight to how much power we inadvertently give away to people and situations. It was a bit of wake up call for me to realise that I had also been feeding into "power" games in certain areas. No judgment , it is was it was..past tense. I am full of gratitude for seeing this clearly and in perspective .
As we release the last of the Water Snake lessons, don't be too hard on yourself..It may not be pretty or even nice. But definitely worth going into the bottomless well and finding the peace that resides within, once you integrate your truth, honesty and integrity :PRICELESS.
Breaking free :)
Hail & Welcome The Year of the Horse !
Shining & Rocking On
This morning I was reminded of the "Desiderata" I grew up reading this every day..when I was sad or angry ..It mellowed me out. Such Beauty filled words. Wise,peaceful & profound.
Bliss on this day to you and yours.
Listen to the music as you read.
Instant Bliss bomb ♥
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
