Listening to the Sacred

Early this morning before dawn I found myself wide awake, I didn’t really want to get out of bed. I laid there  beneath soft, warm flannel sheets willing myself to go back to sleep. Needless to say it didn’t work.

With great effort I managed to crawl out of bed and make my way to the kitchen to make a cup of tea. By the time I finished I could see traces of light slowly seeping over the hills. I stood quietly watching the play of light and shadow dancing across the roof tops ~ bare tree branches ~ light spilling over my fingers ~ mesmerized.

Suddenly bird song filled the air and the deep rich scent of mother earth wafted up. In that one moment, I was finely attuned to every scent, movement, color and shape around me. Listening ~ listening  to the sacred language of mother nature.

Later, when returning to the kitchen for another cup of tea, I noticed that our prayer lily had bloomed. Such grace, the long slender stalk reaching towards the ceiling ever seeking the light. What a wonderful gift on this day of celebration ~ Happy Imbolc Everyone!  So grateful that winter will soon give way to spring.

“And that is just the point… how the world, moist and beautiful, calls to each of us to make a new and serious response. That’s the big question, the one the world throws at you every morning. “Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?”
~ Mary Oliver

“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
