Pilgrimage to Woman

Don’t be fooled, women have carved paths around the earth

Women’s feet have paved many torrents upon the ground

And many women have lost their lives in sacred pilgrimage

Of blessing the Isle and the Mountain top

In the name of the woman

The nature of the septum and the womb

Ancient women have placed their feet upon your paths

And by their unsung names

I remember them

For, wherever they have gone

I go

My feet are not the first to walk these paths

And they won’t be

The Last

Happy New Year

I thank you all for a spirited year of connection, joy, laughter, grief, tears and sounding our voices in release and keening.

I pray for love, more connection to you all in joy and heart blooming inspiration.

I pray that next year I will be gatherings with you, to sing, voice, touch your hand in mine as your spirit has touched my heart this year.

I thank the Grandmothers and the Grandfathers, our ancestors, the ancient ones the wise and the well for pulling us together. I thank the great mysteries of the those that guide me, my angel guardians, my spirit guides for bringing me into circle and session with beautiful souls and those that have pure hearts. I thank the greatness for new friendships, for long held loving relationships, for family and community that have held us as we have experienced challenges and expressed our emotions in safe communion.

I am grateful for All this and so much more. I am grateful to the All and the Only, to the consciousness of oneness and my grateful heart sends out so much love to yours for now in this present moment, I am Truly Blessed.

The Edge

For as long as I can remember I have always been connected to water. I have lived by the sea I have needed water to stabilise and return to my inner self as well as to clear my energy. It is more than just a ritual to hydrate and cleanse. As women we carry water, birth through water, sing to the water.

We are going through an energy clearing and water is appearing as an element of change. The cellular memory tells me that throughout the ages water has been sacred.

We flow we move we change,

We flow we move we change.

As we allow the energy of flow at this time we find a deeper connection from the chaos around us. The water is a reminder of surrender, withdraw if needed, and return when pulled. As we move through another energetic new moon phase and an eclipse we are thrown up to face the change of us all. The movement is happening, change is here, like the sea there are waves causing us to question our values. The mirror, or her reflection is prominent. The mirror has been up against our view to see our shadow, our collective shadow and now the mirror is changing to be the window into the soul. We are that soul, and we are that which is now looking.

Going to the edge is a courageous journey. It is part of a deeper existence to be seen, witnesses and maybe, to be experience…. you decide. On the winter solstice there are many women in the UK going to their local water ways. The intention is to let go of what once was and allow what is to come. If you feel the call, venture to your own edge and sing freely your own song of surrender.

Everything….

There is time for everything and everything has its time…..

Into this place I send my soul song streaming and the elements return the sound into my own. I am here without time and in no place. I have space between the particles of my being and my bones.

What Do You See? A Reflection of Me

Can you feel it, this shift in spirit? I see our forms as energy all thinking, dreaming, perceiving, doing, projecting. I see all those projections as cords, the unaware.

Within my own space, what am I projecting, what have I perceived?

Much of this is not my own, so who am I? I see my form, looking back at me and what do I see?

The perceptions of myself have dropped away, who am I Now? In this moment, there is just my form looking back at me, this is ending, dying, birthing….this is New.

Inner sense

Big energies levelling off with this potent moon. I feel it growling into existence. Like a dominant force of animal energy pleased to see the inside instead of the outer shell.

The inner home is in need of “getting ready” the old just won’t do….boldness is required.

Retrieval

I forgot how satisfying it is to create, to get messy, paint, chop and squeeze.

To make in the moment, forget the chaos and remember me.

I lost time, and place and to silence the world around and be inside of me.

This took me back to rose petals in jars, to a pebble in my pocket weeks after being on the beach.

This reminded me of me…

Darkness to release

In the darkest of night

that is when the soul burns bright

When I am on my knees in prayer

the load breaks, no more I can bare

When burdens scatter to the floor

I can say I have given my All

I welcome the dark in me

as this is when I truly see

When the darkness fades

precipitated, end of a phase

I can say I was present to it all

I keened but I did not fall

Wish You Well

So when did we stop wishing well with sacred spring water, at waterways and sacred sites? Do the words, I wish you well actually correspond to wish you well with sacred water ?

In the last 6 months most correspondence both business and personal have begun with the words, “ I hope you are well?” It occurred to me that this term in our beautiful language, “well”, is a word for health and for the place once associated with healing, a water well. When I searched the word “well” in old English, Latin and in Germanic the word refers to “wish well”. So a little play on the words “wishing well”, how wonderful. In the present time that we have been in these challenging times and wishing each other well are we actually wishing each other well with an age old intentional act of wishing you well with healing water? Are the ancestors and the ancient ones right under our nose at this time, referencing us to wells, healing springs and old ways of healing. I believe we are being directed to think about the ground we live on,  the meandering paths we have been walk on and the places that have been bypassed and forgotten….the ways of wishing and healing near sacred waters.

So my weekend project for the autumnal months is to go and look for some water wells of the land I call home.

So wish me well as I go exploring……
