I read the most amazing article this morning. It was like one of those “wow” or “aha” moments. About the Goddess of Never Not Broken… I could go in depth here about it, but for now I just want to take it in and see your thoughts. Here is the article.
I have felt so many changes lately. I am feeling extremely unsettled. Maybe it is the planets, maybe the energies changing or maybe this is a personal journey that I am on. Facing the shadowlands, shedding my skin and releasing and becoming the better part of who I am. I am being guided – I know. Going with the fire in my heart – burning away what no longer serves my highest good. Planting the seeds and letting the transformation begin its process – painful and beautiful.
In SouLodge we are working with Wolf this month. I resonate with her so much as she is one of my totems. I am feeling mostly right now I am in her shadow qualities. I am off balance but finding my way back. I notice when I am working a ton that it throws everything off. I feel it deep when I don’t have time to clean, do laundry, make metal or art, meditate, eat properly, walk dogs because simply I am too tired or working. It doesn’t bring out the best, but it is happening so I have to find ways to work with it instead of fighting it.
Make quick smoothies, go for short morning walks with pups and then if I have to take a 30 min nap – it is ok. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by trying to change and do everything, do what I can and in little bits. It all adds up and will get done and it does amazing things for the mind to accomplish things. So thank you wolf for showing me to command harmony and helping me find my true nature. All in balance.
Last night in class we made essential oil blends. Before sally passed my friend mixed a blend and I rubbed it on her and I haven’t forgotten that smell. It calms me, so I made a blend to wear daily – frankincense, lavender and bergamot. Frankincense is great for a meditative state, connecting to the spiritual, regenerating skin, treating tumors, lyme disease, infection, reduces wrinkles and helps women’s menstrual problems. Lavender is calming, clears heat and inflammation and helps move the liver Qi. Bergamot is an anti-depressent, clears toxic heat, reduces stress, sadness and moodiness. I used a sweet almond oil base and put it on my pulse points and behind my neck and ears when I am working or needing some calm and a sally feeling.
ps. remember I was talking about dreading my hair. Yah, that isn’t going to happen. I don’t have time to deal with it after talking with my dread head friends ha. change is good. yah.
