As the Wheel Turns

Monday blessings dear souls!

The wheel of life is turning and I’m feeling beautifully attuned to the flow of it all.

Finding the balance and peace of my centre isn’t always easy. I tend to frequently fall into pits of stuck-ness, getting caught up in cycles of negative thought patterns that I spend a lot time digging out of, trying to find my way back to the light and to my grounded self. But lately, things are moving with a new kind of ease for which my heart is so grateful.

I am feeling the presence of Spirit, of Goddess more strongly and I am finding it less of a struggle to stay connected to sacredness. Lessons of surrender and letting go of the struggle come hard, but right now I’m really witnessing the magic that happens when you give up the battle and just allow.

Simplicity and sacredness are at the forefront of my mind. Each day when I ask myself what I want to feel or invite into my life, these two words come to me immediately. So I’ve been receptive to the kindness of October that has brought me many moments laced with both of these precious gifts. A thread of stillness has woven its way into my days forcing me to be still, to rest, to breathe and to simply gather my energy for the things to come.

This ease of flow is not without touches of busy-ness. In between the pauses, I am knee deep in studies – Tarot Journey with Marissa Moondaughter, completing my Herbalism studies and I’ve just began The Captivate Program with Angela Raspass – all gifts that are enriching my mind and soul right now for I love the feeling of learning and seeing my inner world expanding.

Nonetheless, I just feel the need to be present with the magical essence that is growing within and flowing all around me to honour it and to express my gratitude for all that I have been blessed with. I know that soon there will be a quickening of energy that will whisk my back into action and backing into the busyness of doing. For now I just am happy to be moving at the pace at which the wheel of life is turning.

What space do you find yourself in right now as the wheel of life turns?

3 Reasons why I love this time of the year….

My husband and I shared a special moment…

Last Friday, when a peacock showed up on our outing to an aquarium park and left a beautiful feather for us. Peacocks are a symbol of love and marriage in some cultures. We had peacock theme for our wedding invitation and I had peacock feathers in my bouquet. It was special because we were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. We were reminded of how blessed we are to share the love that we do and that Divine Spirit and the angels are always helping on our journey. I love that the festive season kicks off on the 20th December each year when my husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary. It sets a beautiful tone for the rest of the season.  

I enjoyed celebrating the cycles of Great Mother Nature….

With the solstices on the 21st December. Be it the winter solstice or the summer solstice, I love feeling part of something sacred and having the opportunity to connect with Nature, honour her cycles, recognize how they affect us, and to engage in ceremony. Last year my husband and I spent our anniversary and the summer solstice exploring ancient stone ruins. This year was a bit low keep, but just as special.

I’m looking forward to the madness…

Of our traditional family Christmas. Sometimes we have a big Christmas where the entire family gets together. Other times, we simply have Christmas with the family who live close by. For the last couple years, we’ve celebrated at my aunt’s house, and we’ll be doing the same again this year. She lives in a town about an hour away from me. This period is always filled with cooking, Christmas music, mince pies, presents, loads off laugher and family games. My favourite thing is lounging by the pool and swimming after the big Christmas lunch.

These are the times of our lives that make up incredible memories when we look back on our lives. We are reminded to rekindle our sense of generosity, and the days filled with precious moments and reasons to be grateful. What’s not to love about it.
