oh my goodness goodness....
i look at the date of my last entry & it has been awhile!
i really did stepped back & tucked in for a time, & am now finding myself ready to re~emerge;
if even just for a bit.... my life is in the midst of some huge changes.... & i have been taking care of me.
i went to a retreat on Whidbey Island in mid September, & celebrated Autumn Equinox....for me personally it was a much needed getaway,some alone time, some woman/we~moon time,some personal spiritual time. i had the opportunity to meet some new friends & wonderful ladies & fellow journeyers on the path of life & i am so very very grateful for these connections, heart & soul!!! Aldermarsh Retreat Center was the perfect space & time & just what my heart & soul was requiring. The time to reflect & remember, to create, & to interact was so very healing for me. Being in nature as much as i am, Aldermarsh was a new earthspace to be present with & experience,explore & totally enjoy!
On the way home i was momentarily swallowed by a huge dust storm!!;.......which created some interesting events in my life, as well as offering the opportunity to see with clarity in the midst of what may be obvious all around yet unseen (perhaps the effects of allowing a wind summoner to call in the air when opening circle, & an invitation to blowing all the ickies out of my life!!)
An annual visit from my ~sister sister~ the end of September,was another opportunity for creative expression & enjoyment.... also a recent Full moon gathering with my beautiful daughters circle brought more opportunity to meet new friends & gather with like minded women, & share food i enjoyed making.
Thru all of this; a healing opportunity to remember so many of the things i love, yet that have been somewhat hidden in my day to day life & my current job, & the realization the job had similarly swallowed me like the dust storm
& so it is....i pick myself up & dust myself off, cleanse my weary self.....the seeds have been sewn, much has been renewed in my life & my being~~ & it is all good.... a new way to observe, a new perspective.... & i am more prepared to journey forward~
looking forward to what it is the universe has to offer me along the path of life~~
brightest blessings & warmest loving hugs~ earthdeva/molly
