'As this year draws to a close - been reflecting on the year as a hermit. We go in cycles and this year was a 7 year for me. I Craved solitude, gentleness and peace - which is not unusual, but somehow it felt magnified by a million. Every thing outside my space felt harsh and I was seriously thinking I may have developed a phobia!
We all need solitude at some points in our life. I think that's when you become comfortable with you. All else drops away. Lot's of learning, searching and integration of self. A veiling of mind,body and soul as such.
A hermit year allows you to just be. However the brain/ mind can be the greater adversary- thinking , warring within -reminding you to go forth and be a part of the human race, yet the lone wolf has other ideas .
Yes ,a strange mixed year indeed.
I found this encaustic art that I did at the start of the year today. It was placed in a book - I wrote on the back :
As we see this year out and welcome 2016 , consider doing your personal year numerology to see what the new year has in store.
It's nice to know the coming energies that you will most probably be starting to feel anyway.

Happy new Moon :)
The new moon marks the start of the new phase in the cycle of waxing and waning. The moon is New, full of latent, powerful energy, very receptive to intentions.
That's well and dandy, particularly when you are firing on all cylinders.
Sometimes it's hard to be positive and send out new moon intentions, when you have no fucks left to give.
It's December and I have used my quota :)
Just coming out of the dark moon energy can be be jarring. So I thought I would share this amazing Music from Jonathan Goldman.
When I play it in circle or Healings it can have a profound effect on the person.
When we Journey I usually send out the intent that the person receiving will meet their Guide/Shaman and stand in the Flames and release.
Just Imagine you are in your safe, sacred place. Let your mind be taken over by the music. Imagine a fire and your guide sitting there waiting for you. He/she invites you to stand in the flames and burn away everything that no longer serves, let your imagination and intuition guide you.
Perfect to do before you send out your new moon intentions
Enjoy and Rock on
