The Sabbitical

Except for very brief periods, I’ve worked steadily since I was 16 years old. First job was as a meat wrapper in the A & P grocery store which was over the railroad tracks from my house on Railroad Ave. Tells you a little bit about that house.

In early April I turned 67 years old. 51 years of working. After the A & P grocery store stint I have been mostly self-employed except for a few years as a Pre-school teacher. During all those working years I never took more then a week or 10 days off at a time. For many years now I day dream about the imaginings I have about European paid vacations – a month or more at a time. How […]

The Primal Force

“Nature and women hold the original primal force that arises spontaneously. This creative force is the first element and the ground from which all elements of life on Earth emerge. It is original wholeness and oneness. Nature and women hold these earliest elements of existence from which all manifestation arises.” – MaryAnn Copson

Turning To the Light

You enhance your self worth and understanding by identifying with Earth as your Self, your “other body”.
 

“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and death, in ebb and in flow. I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.”  […]

Nature Is Your Larger Body

“What we experience Nature experiences. And what Nature experiences we experience. You are Nature and Nature is you. All forms of conscious are one and the same. Just as every cell in your body is your body. Nature is your larger body. And you are Nature’s cell.

All consciousness -including Earth and beyond – are part of a global/universal community where we all share common sense (our commonly shared set of sensory perceptions) and we all have continuous and current communication flowing to, from, and through all for the well being of all.” ~MaryAnn Copson

Notice When It Happens

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your Heart and try to Love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer…”
– Rainer Maria Rilke

Be attentive. Notice when it happens.

It is likely that you will think it nothing. Dismiss it. Call it foolishness and go on as if nothing has happened. That day when your life suddenly all makes sense.

The Four Enemies of a Woman of Knowledge

When starting out on a grand journey like taking up your Woman Shaman Priestess Healer path, or journeying into your power along any path, it is important to remember that not only will there be many attractions and fulfillment along the way but there will also be many challenges, obstacles and blocks along the way. The Mysteries do not open to you lightly but ask of you much dedication, discipline, engagement and change.

A Contemplation for you as you make your choices.

In order to arrive at what you do not know,
You must go by the way which is the way of ignorance. ~T.S. Eliot

New Growth

Imbolc means “in the belly”. This refers to the pregnant ewes who are about to birth their lambs, but can also refer to the Goddess, as in “in the belly of the Mother”, for this is a time when the seeds are just beneath the surface, ready to sprout; this is a time of quickening and new growth.

The Great Harvest Festival of Imbolc

Tonight we start our preparation for the celebration of #Imbolc. Imbolc is one of the 8 Great Harvest Festivals. It is a time sacred to the Brigid, who began her life as a Pagan Goddess and ended up a Christian saint. She is a Goddess of Fire, Creativity and Fertility. She is known as the Goddess of poetry, smith-craft and healing. She is patroness of inspiration and midwifery. She has also been associated with the martial arts.

New Life New Year New Beginnings

“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.” – Ellen Goodman

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
