This is coming soon!!!
There is a call that rises from deep within our souls, whispering in the wind, echoing softly in the night like the soft call of the owl, it may grow very quiet at times. It is the call of our stories, the keys that we thought were long lost, dried up seeds blowing in the wind. But what they need to grow and flourish is a little bit of earth and nurturance.
Overnights oats have so much to offer us, nutritional benefits and they are an easy and healthy meal or snack on the go or anytime. The alchemy of the ingredients provide soluble fiber, energy sustaining protein and natural sweetness.
Walking through the forest, the moon is nearing full, silver light on the trees and plants around me. I am moving with purpose and determination, my pants very wide and substantial. A shorter dark cloak around my shoulders swishing just past my hips. There is a sense of purpose surrounding me.
When I take a bite of this salad, I feel an immediate zing of energy move through my entire system and it’s as though all of my sensory receptors are opened and cleansed instantly. I see and feel the rainbow colors of this dish lighting up within me.
This is the Death and Rebirth Phase. It is during this time that we Release, Surrender, Restore and Repair.
Like the moon goes into the dark void, disappearing for a time, we go inward, into our own creative void to release and purify that which we have taken into our energy and body during the month.
I begin to brew the magic that is brownies. I love brownies, dark, rich and dense, a little square goes a long way. This recipe is so easy and I love it because you can set the alchemy going with fire and water to melt the butter to combine it with the cacao powder and sugar while you dance around, read a book, love the dog, enjoy.
Along the wheel of the year, Spring is drawing to a close, giving way to Summer. Often at this time of year we feel the urge to rush forward, to do many things at once. Hawthorn gently catches us with thorns hidden amongst her soft green leaves and perfumed blossoms. We are enticed by her strong scent as we feel her request that we spend some time cleaning the temple of the self during this transition. Now is the time to retreat from the bustling world for some quiet moments, to gradually strengthen our minds and bodies through meditation and exercise.
I feel the vitality of the day and see an image of them closing at night and opening in the morning. Their medicine can be used to assist us with aligning to our internal rhythms. Their bitter secretions detoxifying the blood and cells. Supporting the skin in becoming vibrant and supple. Skin Nourished and Soothed, Clean and healthy.
We are being asked to circle back, spiral back in, ‘listen to the wisdom of your own heart first. Respect the whispers of your heart, that is the only way that others will as well’. This is a lineage of the feminine I am resurrecting and bringing forth with the archetype of the warrior and guardian. This ancient practice of the warrior, to cycle through the wheel of the year each month, to tap into wisdoms and clear paths for seeing in dreams and visions to return to normal life with strategies and plans for better thrive and flourish as a woman, as a community and beyond.
The power of women is swelling and rising every single time a woman listens deeply within, when we support each other, when a woman connects to her authentic heart and uses it to guide her to bring her unique light to her family and her community rippling out to the entire Web of Life. What is bubbling up and rising in the world, the reclaiming of Women’s Spiritual Nature as creators of life is nurtured and supported by Rite of the Womb.
