Full moon

Tomorrow is our full moon circle and the ritual still needs some work!

Imbolc is in two short weeks and that event needs a lot of sprucing up.
Meanwhile I share this.

down

wpid-IMAG1551.jpgDown the street thousands of church goers are ecstatically enjoying summer camp.

Down the hill my neighbors are partying it up with really loud (thankfully good) music.

Down the path the bobcat is hunting dinner

Down the hall the child is sleeping

and down here I am showered and calm and ready to lay down with my new book.

Bees and plums

20130702-181309.jpg

 

I went out to this beautiful tree to pick some plums for the folks of the office and as I got closer I could tell the air was a live with buzzing I know the bees are all over a nearby Salvia (I think not sure what it is yet) but the tree is no longer in flower but fully in fruit as I got closer this is what I saw

All over the tree bees are busily filling themselves on the sweet ripe plums. The property down the hill from us have bee boxes and I am guessing that is why we are blessed with so many. I wonder what the honey taste like if it is from plum juice.

A New Life.

20130626-155715.jpg

We have embarked on a new life. Sometimes I still can’t believe it. Ok most of the time! The view is so pretty it hurts.

I having been talking to several Sisters and have decided to take the next baby step in my spiritual life, which will be a big change. I am embarking in a more deeply spiritual life.

I love where we are because I feel so very connected to my surroundings. The plants and animals the very dirt.

If you follow me on my new Facebook page you will know I had a new experience with spirits. I am used to speaking to Others at the point be they Fae or Deity but I have never spoken to an ancestor.  When the other Others have shown up usually I know whats going on but this time it took me a while. I just felt intense pain in my chest like my lungs would explode and it got to the point that I was telling a friend “I feel like I am dying of lung cancer” She said “I have a grandpa who died that way” and then I saw the man. An older gentleman who proceeded to give me a message to pass on to his granddaughter. As soon as I passed the news on my pain was gone just like that!

There are two courses of action here. One to live in denial and think I’m crazy. To repress and stuff down my experiences in an attempt to feel normal or, embrace it. I have gone with the later.

I am looking forward to finding where it will take me.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
