All That We Can Sense But Cannot See

18157963_10155120780332457_2188883547547425626_n

It can be so simple; a sound made sacred, a lingering fragrance observed, a few words strung together in Prayer.

Ritual is when time is held still, for a moment, and our attention is turned to what is right in front of us, to what we are offering right now beyond ourselves.

Allowing a natural exchange with the breath, with stillness, and with what we can only sense but often cannot see.

The Sweet Promise Of Renewal

After every Dark Season, there is always the return of the Light…

I’m sharing my New Moon – New Year Tarot reading over on my dear friend Kate Bartolotta’s website. She created an incredible offering to help open ourselves up to this time of possibility. I hope that in sharing this New Moon – New Year reading, that you can find some inspiration for the letting go of the no longer to be carried and the holding on of what really grips your heart.

May the sweet promise of renewal bring you healing, comfort and your heart’s desire.

Mugwort, Moonstone & The Priestess

A New Moon ritual for this shifting season.

As we come from the outer dominion of the Summer Sun – the days shorten – aligning now with the deep dive into the darker inner Autumn realm.

This summer was an incredible season of deepening and I look forward to the next cycle to process and integrate it all.

The Heart As Compass

“And the way forward always in the end
the way that you followed, the way that carried you
into your future, that brought you to this place,
no matter that it sometimes took your promise from you,
no matter that it had to break your heart along the way…

and that every step along the way, you had carried
the heart and the mind and the promise
that first set you off and drew you on and that you were
more marvelous in your simple wish to find a way
than the gilded roofs of any destination you could reach…”

~ Excerpt from Santiago by David Whyte

New Moon Healing

Tonight’s collection as I sit with this New Moon who is asking me to define all the ways in which I am healing…

“So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.” ~ T.S. Eliot

I’ve been taking a cue from November’s bones, who speak to me of dismantling all my intentions {right down to the bones} and re-evaluating what I want to continue carrying, letting everything else fall away.

There is lightness and freedom here – and more room to breathe.

Inner Winds

Listening to the inner winds, to this New Moon, and to Black Elk speak.

“All over the sky a sacred voice is calling your name.” ~ Black Elk

And I remind myself to breathe like I mean it. Prana is medicine.

“And when I breathed, my breath was lightning.” ~ Black Elk
