Moving Into a New Year...


Last night,
I watched an orange full moon
rise up between bare branches.
I dreamed and woke with this thought
in my mind:
we kneel at her feet.
Today, the ground shimmers
with tiny stars of frost,
diamonds in the morning sun.
There is hope in their cold beauty.
The trees carry a thin coating
of twinkling ice too and I exhale.
I sit and sing,
listening to the birds.
This chill day,
we step across a threshold
into a cold and quiet pause,
in which to gather up
the sparkles of this year.
Hold them gently in your hands,
some bright and beautiful,
some sharp and aching.
Bring them close to your heart.
Let them be warmed by your breath
and soothed by your heartbeat.
Admire them.
Bless them.
Thank them.
Then open your hands
and let them dance away
back into the current of time.
Settle into your heart space
and inquire into desire,
pausing to listen
and learn from
what is truly here right now.
Kneel at the feet of mystery.

 


Do you crave time for devotional practice? Are you hungering for sacred space and for where to go on your goddess-centered path? Our new #30DaysofGoddess devotional class offers prompts, practices, and prayers for every day of January!

I wanted to send a brief Happy New Year message out to you all with a special, limited time coupon code discount on the upcoming #30DaysofGoddess class. The coupon is for $15 off with code "NEWYEAR." It is good until January second, so register soon!

#30DaysofGoddess was a completely unexpected offering for me in 2021 and it changed my life as well as the lives of so many other people who took part in some way over the last 365 days. Do not let the 365 days concept scare you, as this is very much a one day at a time, one moment at a time practice, with no failure and no behind!

Reminder: we will reopen with limited inventory on January 3.

 

Some reflections after 365 Days of Goddess...

Here we are at the edge of 2022. 365 days of bearing witness, of noticing, of setting pen to page and colored pencil to paper. 365 days of keeping company with the sacred, with joy, with myself. 365 days of sacred pauses, of flashes of magic, of new words patiently being born. 365 days of seeing and breathing, being and feeling. 365 days of conscious presence and mindfulness. 365 days of showing up for myself and for what is. 365 chances to listen to the Goddess, to rest a hand against my heart and uncover what I know and what She whispers. 365 new prayers, 365 observations, 365 slices of seeing, 365 days of discovering the magic of exactly where I am. 365 days of listening to the Goddess in the world on hoof and wing, in the wind and woods, and signs and dreams, in my own skin, and right beneath my feet. There is deep power in keeping a promise, upholding a vow, repeating a commitment and beginning again each day, body, breath, and heart aligned with what you hold most dear.

#30DaysofGoddess is a simple system of daily devotion that offers prompts, prayers, and practices for cultivating a mindful goddess-centered life. It combines prayer writing, or prayer speaking with daily observation, simple rituals and daily awareness, checking in with the magic of place, the sanctity of now, and the magic of being alive where and who you are. It is a container for creative expression and sacred experiencing all in one. It was created in response to the questions of how and what. How do I feel her presence? What do I do?

When we repeat an action,
or a practice,
or a prayer
it gathers power
and grows stronger.
Keeping promises to ourselves
is how trust grows.
Committing to practices
that replenish
and sustain us
is how magic deepens
and faith settles in to stay.


Happy New Year!
