Wild Women


"Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, 
a powerful force, filled with good instincts, 
passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. 
Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species. 
Though the gifts of the wildish nature come to us at birth, 
society's attempt to "civilize" us into rigid roles has plundered 
this treasure, and muffled the deep, life-giving messages 
of our own souls. 
Without Wild Woman, 
we become over-domesticated, fearful, uncreative, trapped."

Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Weekly Affirmation




I easily find the gift in every challenge.
In my heart I know there is always a gift,
and therefore it is always revealed to me.

Michael Alperstein

I felt, after yesterday's oracle, that this was the perfect follow-up for this week's affirmation. As I am facing a bit of challenge right now, I have a great deal of support. One friend told me, I MUST believe absolutely that all is well. And so I do... or I am working at it the best I can.

All is well in my world.

Blessings nine!

Shaman of Reflections
The Shaman Oracle by john Matthews & Wi Kinghan

I am the Shaman of Reflections. I offer you who calls upon me the opportunity
to see beyond your mirror image,  and to recognize within yourself the truths that
you may never have perceived. I challenge those who believe there is only one pathway
to follow. In the mystery of the mirror I show each individual his or her true self.

Look into the mirror and be challenged by what you see; and not just a physical mirror... the mirror of your thoughts, contemplations, situations, your soul. Look into the magick mirror. See deeply and past the everyday image, look into the soul, the heart, the past. What have we hidden that, if brought forward, will assist us on this path we travel, this path that has many branches and byways. That deeply hidden image is where our wisdom, the wisdom we have within us, will be. 

This card is a very clear indication that self-clarification is needed. It is time to acknowledge the truth, accepting reality, and then understanding that the challenges we face are valid ways of moving along our path to understanding ourselves and what we need to accomplish, what we have decided to do... or the tasks the goddesses and gods, ancestors, and/or spirits have set for us. 

I see this as, if you will pardon the language, the no bullshit card. Take a good look at what you are doing, what you think you want to be, to achieve - is it what you really want to go for? Are you  really up to the task? There is no shame in acknowledging that your aren't ready or willing to take on this, that's fine so go on your way to whatever is next for you. But some will be called kicking and screaming, but know it is what must be - do it anyway, you've been called and don't have the choice anyway. It will just keep coming back.

Then there are other things, challenges in the mundane, and these may be your greatest fear, the thing you absolutely don't want to have anything to do with. I am in that position right now, dealing with one of my biggest fears. Despite it being a challenge in the mundane, I know my goddesses are behind it, another test, task, whatever one wishes to call it, placed in my path to rip me apart and hopefully put me back together... wiser than before.

Reflection is many things.

Blessings nine!

The Blossoming & Beltane


While most of the Pagan world celebrates Beltane, I am celebrating and honoring Flora, Roman goddess of Spring and blossoming flowers, through May 3rd. My altar is adorned with fresh flowers and branches from my hedge. The blossoming is what is important for me, all that I desire to manifest, may it come into being, blossoming riotously, abundantly, and joyfully. To you and yours, I wish the same.

Gratitude
Vintage Wisdom Oracle by Victoria Moseley

It has been clinically proven that a thankful life is generally a happier life. We are usually receiving much more than we give, but don't realize it. Instead, many times we focus on what we don't have instead of how very rich our lives truly are.

The Gratitude card presents itself to us today, inviting us to unearth the bounty of our daily lives by remembering to be grateful. This is a favorable time to express thanks to someone who has helped us in some way, or just to count the blessings in our lives.

The continued practice of this alchemical virtue, gratitude, can animate forgiveness, heal the past, and bring about a daily sense of wonderment and peace. From a cosmic perspective, to become unconditionally grateful for the adventure of life, with all its ups and downs and regardless to outcomes, is to merge with the Divine, the Goddesses.

Naturally, being human, we may not achieve this everyday, but the days we do, in my experience, brings a deep peace. And there is always something to be grateful for. Yesterday was a very raining day where I live. An acquaintance was complaining about the rain, saying she hated it. I looked out and said, "Oh, but think of how green everything will be. The plants and trees are having a shower and a good drink, everything is flowing, everything is being washed clean - Mother Nature cleansing the Earth." She thought for a moment, smiled, and agreed. Off she went, without opening her umbrella, dancing in the rain. In that moment, she chose to be grateful for the deluge of rain, letting it wash her clean, seeing it as a gift from Mama Earth.

Blessings nine.
