We're 10 days into Magdalene Month. Her feast day in the Roman Church is July 22, so I wanted to share and celebrate her wisdom, at a time when we need it most. I even activated the Magdalene Path Sanctuary group on Facebook, as a place to gather and share quotes, practices and downloads. (Request membership & join us!) Sweet soul, I see that right now, so many of us are navigating these big changes with courage, grace and poise. But it's not easy, as we're hit with waves of exhaustion, doubt, fear, fatigue, negativity. Ay Caramba! So much
Right now, we're all coping with so much, sweetheart. I know. We're all experiencing the same world events, but it hits each of us so differently. Plus we all have our own private challenges, that aren't part of the collective experience. And while the changes that are happening are good in the long run, they're not easy to navigate. All levels of our beings are impacted. Even though it's good that we're not "going back to normal" (which clearly didn't work in a lot of ways) it's a lot to wade through and adjust to. Shifting from unconscious privilege
Beloved... Checking in on you. How's the year so far? Swirling ebbs of clarity and question marks? In my world, life has been shifting swiftly--not in a bad way--dropping into deeper layers of Soul Clarity with new realities emerging. Just as I make one discovery something else pops in, causing me to reconsider and change--even something I JUST told you about. (Oy!) (Details below.) That seems so like 2020. We're really being called to flex and flow, which is the essence of our Feminine mode. We are really being asked step in to our truth and walk the talk.
We're heading into the luscious dark quiet of the year. I wanted to drop in before we go deep into the blur of Christmas and New Year holidays to send love and a gift. Solstice is here and always so luscious for me. Always a deep time of review and reflection, completing this year and receiving the next. A pause. But for some it's full frenzy. I hope that's not you, but if it is...Take this time for you. You're worth it. To start the deepening process, we gathered for a virtual retreat on Facebook, Tuesday--a virtual Rose Temple
Wow, Autumn Equinox was big. The season really shifted here in the Pacific Northwest-- a real reminder of the turn inward we are meant to take now. I'm still digging out from that New Super Moon. Did it rock your world like mine? So many of the patterns that have been challenging in the past--things we thought were done--seem to be back and highlighted. Oh goody. I took a sabbatical and made a nest in my bedroom so that I could rest, reflect and re-balance. I’ve been using my tools and support to lean into the places that seems
I had a "be brave moment" yesterday. I offered a Women's Temple on-line, using Facebook LIVE. Yikes! Did you catch it? Life isn't always neat and tidy, and this week has felt like a wild ride. The Full Moon woke me at 4 am. So potent and beautiful! So doing this didn't make logical sense, but I felt I HAD TO. You have those moments of inspired action, too, don't you? Since it's my second Facebook Live it's far from perfect. Grab a cuppa tea or wine and watch your free on-line women’s temple. It's pinned on The Magdalene
Oh, sweet summertime is upon us, sister! As I sit on my deck to write you, the heady scent of blossoms fill the air, a warm breeze glances by, a cacophony of birdsong greets me. Bright toes in sandals, jumping in a cool creek, chilled fruity cocktails with dinner cooked outdoors in the waning evening sunshine… what’s not to love? (cottonwood fluff and 90+ days, aside…) I’ve always loved summer...and my birthday in June adds to the delight. But it's hard to believe we’re almost halfway through this year…how did that happen!? As we edge towards Summer Solstice later this
For many of us the New Year tradition of making new spiffy plans and resolutions often just doesn't work. It's too soon-- we’re not ready yet--in the fallow of winter. Often times I like to create Vision Map for my year. This January felt far too early. But now that energy shifts, and we start to feel the new year cycle of creativity returning. Are you noticing this in you? If you're hungry to see, feel and express the visions that have been germinating in winter’s quiet, I've got an idea to manifest them more easily.
In the pre-Christian traditions of Europe, this time of year was always honored as the season of harvest and gratitude. In the ancient Celtic calendar, we first had Samhain (pronounced Saw-when...go figure.) This festival got repurposed as Hallowe'en along with All Souls and All Saints days in the Christian tradition. It's time known for the veils to the spirit world being thinnest. (Why else would people dress like ghosts, goblins and witches?) Our desire to meditate and be quiet grows after a long season of summer. Feelings and intuitions rise. After the harvest, the fields are fallow. Not much happening,
Goddess, Last article I shared about harnessing the energy that's present now to rebalance inside and out with the forces of Equinox. It's still relevant with the energy of Easter. And with May Day (Beltane, Mary Day...) just ahead. Spring is really here, so in our recent Temple Sophia gathering last week, 20 women (yes!!) sat in our red tent circle. We explored new life bursting forth, and shared the beginnings of something new emerging in their lives. I had a profound sense of arriving on a long path to share this moment together. I felt confirmation on so many
