“Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of winged seeds so each moment brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in the minds and wills of men. Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because men are not prepared to receive them: for such seeds as these cannot spring up anywhere except in the good soil of freedom, spontaneity, and love.” ~ Thomas Merton

 

 

“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

Inspirational Friday~You Are Worth the Time

The alchemy of creating art comes from your heart, the deep places within you and your response to what is going on around you. It is an expression of your heart and soul. I find that creating art is a profoundly healing act in itself, and feeds me on every level: Physical, mental and spiritual.

I found this great video on YouTube and loved it.

“Creativity is a shapechanger. One moment it takes this form, the next that. It is like a dazzling spirit who appears to us all, yet is hard to describe for no one agrees on what they saw in that brilliant flash.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Watching The Slow Changes

In the cold, grey winter days of January within me grows a deep longing for more light. Radiant golden sunlight kissing the land.

I enjoy watching the small slow changes ~ from winter to spring ~ the time when I first notice the slow lingering sunlight of the early year, the new grass and seasonal flowers and the first sweet laughter of spring in the air.

Imbolc

Pale winter sun lingers, lengthening each day
On twig and branch new buds begin to swell
Songbirds give voice, each striving to excel
Seed senses change in its deep bed of cold clay
Earth goddess weaves her magic to propel
Reborn cycle of her womb along its way.

Life returns in every tree’s slow thought
In pond and stream the dance begins again
Spring flowers show their purpose to proclaim
A new season comes; winters reign is short
And darkness no longer exercises any claim
Green growth dispels grey moods it brought.
~ by Ian R. Thorpe


Here is a very inspiring and beautiful video to bring a smile to your heart.

Wintry Thoughts & Musings

It is a quiet Saturday afternoon as I sit before my window staring out at the cold grey skies watching the rain fall. I take great comfort in being tucked away from the madness that ensues during the pre-Christmas sale days.

We had a really nice Thanksgiving with my husband’s family ~ laughing ~ talking ~ sharing our stories. ~ Simply wonderful!

Every year during the Holidays, I become a child again, seeing wonder and magic in each and everything. I especially love the slant of winter light falling through the windows, the smell of woodsmoke on a cold night and cuddling with someone I love.

Meanwhile our dining room table  has pearls, glass beads, gemstones piled up as the winter muse prompts me to create new necklaces.

I found some beautiful porcelain goddesses created by a ceramic artist several years ago and purchased the last four pendants he had left. They have been in storage for years . . .  lying there waiting …. waiting for me to bring them out into the light of day.

I strung one of the beautiful goddess pendants with silver and white freshwater pearls, faceted quartz bricolette teardrops, moonstone beads, white mother of pearl beads, stunning faceted clear quartz beads, sterling silver spacers and a sterling silver clasp.

The Winter Goddess necklace will be listed in my new Online Store in December.

Visions of a wintry landscape ~ The Winter Goddess weaves her magic into our lives as we turn inward. She is draped in a cloak of sparking snow and ice ~ tenderly watching over the dormant seeds sleeping beneath the frozen land.  Waiting ~ dreaming. . .

Sweet memories of winter ~ Ice-sickles hanging from bare tree limbs sparkling like diamonds beneath a full moon. The sound of cold snow crunching beneath my boots while carrying Christmas dinner up the mountain because the car couldn’t make it up the frozen road to our home and the wild crazy snow rides down the mountain on a make shift snow sleigh.

A Winter Poem

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the dis-attiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.
~ William Carlos Williams
