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)

“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

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~

April ~ The Realm Of Spring

 There is magic stirring at the edges of the beginning of April …

a gentle murmur of change on the wind…

New life awakening…


Look, a mirage, like a round rim …

a strange Wizard’s masterpiece about us:

An old line that’s not there

A boundary that never ends.

~ David James

Magical Leap Year Day

Happy leap year 2012!. . . Look what showed up in my tea cup this morning. A beautiful spiral . . .An auspicious symbol for a leap year day.

And this. . . on my morning walk. . . Lovely plum blossoms

“Trees are poetry the earth writes into the sky”. ~ Khalil Gibran

” …. this wheel of many parts, that can rise and spin over and over again, full of gorgeous life” ~ Mary Oliver

As I watch raindrops drip from shimmering birch trees, I bid February goodbye.

I love these precious, fleeting moments that open windows into the interior of the sacred. The dance of light and shadow chasing each other across the sky. The magic of  spring that awakens us from the deep sleep of winter, stirring the sleeping parts of ourselves into awareness.

February Musings

“I don’t want you to just sit down at the table.

I don’t want you to just eat and be content.

I want you to walk out into the fields

Where the water is shining and the rice has risen.

I want you to stand there far from this white tablecloth.

I want you to fill your hands with mud, like a blessing.” 

~ Mary Oliver

Interacting with the landscape can heal us, and

 bring us deeper into the mystery of who we are

by restoring our kinship with the Earth

The bird whispered to the tree . . . the tree whispered to the land

Awaken . . .  Manifest . . .  Bloom

Read the messages written on the land

. . .   Signs . . . Portents  . . .  Omens  . . .

Listen to the voices on the wind

The  gentle murmur of  rain prayers

The rivers carrying blessings to where they are needed

  The ongoing conversations between the sea and land

between the visible and invisible worlds

Musings on a 64 degree February day with blue skies and lots of sunshine.

Joy & Blessings to all
