November ~ Treasured Moments

morningsunriseoct282013

     Dew on the eyelids to awaken & refreshen the spirit and soul. . .

         Early morning light spreading over damp grey moss. . .

     The eternal cycle of renewal. . .

      as the sun rises over the hills. . .

The woods restore my inner sense of balance. . .

as I listen to the ancient tongue of trees…

beneath the ever changing November sky

There is a consciousness that inhabits all things;

It’s in every tree, leaf, root and stone. . .

A deep magic that softly wraps itself around you

as the changing seasons…ebb and flow

Here deep in the woods…We are never alone.

Wishing you a beautiful November!

“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other
beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess,
a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything
we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” ~ rose arizmendi

Samhain Greetings

All Hallows Eve…

The edge of winter wrapping itself around me…

Slowly creeping into my bones…

as the old woman of the land approaches.

Tonight powerful energies flow between the worlds

As the golden amber veil thins and parts….

offering us a glimpse into the mysterious otherworld

The warm glow of candlelight in the window

A  sign of welcome for our  ancestors who draw near on this night

Cakes, cookies, homemade bread and other treats to delight

Waiting on a lovingly decorated table.

Tonight we will release that which is no longer needed
in our lives into the flickering flames of our hearth fires
We will treasure the hard earned lessons of the past year
and carry those into the coming new year.
Blessings to you and your loved ones.

Wishing you love, peace, healing
 and joyous new beginnings
  for this Celtic New Year

Breaths

“Those who have died have never, never left;
the dead are not under the earth,
They are in the rustling trees,
they are in the groaning woods
they are in the crying winds
they are in the moaning rocks
the dead are not under the earth
Tis the ancestors’ breath
when the fire’s voice is herd,
Tis’ the ancestors’ breath
 in the voice of the water
Listen more often to things than to beings.”

Poem by Birago Diop

Autumn Rituals

One of my favorite autumn rituals is taking walks along

The creek… drinking in the changes I see and hear….

Listening to the husky voices of the crows in the oak tree,

observing the ochre tinge just at the edges of the leaves

and inhaling that distinct scent of change in the air. 

It is a wholesome and necessary thing

For us to turn again to the earth and in

The contemplation of her beauties

To know of wonder and humility.

~ Rachel Carson


People usually consider walking on water or in

thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle

is not to walk either on water or in thin air,

BUT  TO  WALK  ON  EARTH…

Every day we are engaged in a miracle

Which we don’t even recognize

A blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,

The black, curious eyes of a child…

Our own two eyes… All is a miracle.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Everyone, no matter what their cultural background

Has a right to discover the Sacred in Nature;

To heal and be redeemed spiritually by nature;

And to revere the ancestors. We are all

Haunted and saved by our memories.

~ Martha Brooks (from Bone Dance)

Midsummer Magic

 Inside Summer’s fiery heart

Feel the pulse of  Solstice magic

Guiding you and filling you up with light.

Awaken to the Beauty of Life…

The Gifts and the Miracles

Vibrational Beauty

Colors..

Crystals…

Luminous Light

Nourish the Mind, Body and Spirit

 Ignite the Universe…

Share your wisdom and your kindness  with others

Offerings

 When you hold Nature within your Heart…

The whole Earth becomes Sacred Space

 

 Spiraling Prayer

“People visited groves and springs at the sacred times

and made the Turas, circling these holy places and wells.

A sort of concentric prayer spiraling inwards.”

~ from a speech by Nuala Ahern,
   Irish Member of the European Parliament

Essence Of Love

Inspire & Nourish

Each Other

Mother ~ Earth ~ Goddess ~ Sacred Spirituality

Mother’s Essence

The Offering

Her face is a hundred full moons in autumn,

Her radiance blazes like a thousand stars,

Dispelling the darkness of ignorance.

On her let us meditate.

~ The praise to Arya-Tara~
