See I’m trying to do better J Not sure how long it will last, but it is definitely something I need to get back to doing as often as possible.
I spent an hour or so with two of my chapter mates at a possible retreat location yesterday. We really enjoyed the solitude of this quiet little place.
I’m excited for this little getaway with my chapter sisters. There is just something about getting together for an entire weekend with other writers, discussing writing, our lives, and just being together bonding that draws people closer.
Today I’m not real sure where this blog will take us. I guess I’ll just write and see where I land.
The other day while at our event, the vendors were all setting up early that morning. One of the vendors, Jazz and G’s, a favorite shop of mine in our area, placed this picture on one of their tables. It immediately caught my eye. Throughout the day, I found myself gazing at this picture. I couldn’t help but feel it was calling out to me.
She’s a beautiful angel winged woman, holding a ball of light. Her eyes seemingly watched me even though her head is slightly bowed. There was just something about her that reached into my soul.
For a little backstory on this feeling of mine. For several years now, around Imbolc, Feb. 2, I often get this feeling when out and about. It only comes in the days surrounding Imbolc, which is the holiday that honors my closest friend, my Goddess, Brigit. So for many years now when things such as this happen, I graciously realize there is some significance in these gifts and treat them as a gift from my Goddess.
This one is by far the most compelling, the one that just captivates me. So I feel as if this particular gift has much to teach me.
I will say I firmly believe this is a motivational tool my Lady has sent me to assist me in keeping my eye on the mark. Since this picture has entered my home, she has reminded me that there are some things that are not my journey, so I should not dwell in the thoughts and hurt certain things in this life have brought about in the past few weeks. That the guilt over such things is not mine to claim, but the ones who’ve brought about the thoughts and hurt.
My faith in myself has been restored. The courage to allow myself the freedom from the actions of others has been set firmly in my heart.
I believe Brigit is leading me into a deeper spiritual growth this year by asking me to look into myself to find the light that shines within me. She is presenting me with insight and knowledge of where I should put my energies and where to put my friendship energies to optimize my inner and outer growth.
She is already teaching me to ‘let it go’ when I would otherwise stew over the actions or words of another. Showing me the reasons why I don’t always have to ‘call someone out’ when I feel wronged. She has shown me what my journey consists of and what is not my path to walk.
Okay, now that you truly know I’m an insane individual I will sign off for today J
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
