waning moon and the clearing…

by Leonie Dawson on November 23, 2005

the waning moon.
the desire to cut away energy, friendships, self-limiting beliefs that no longer served us.
the power of the waning moon {you can read more about it here ~ bless you juliana} to help us re-evaluate what needs weeding to make room in our heart garden.
so at lunch we go to the park.
we make a tiny altar ~ some stones, some candles, much loved oracle cards and the sacred cauldron {my clay lunch dish}.
we write on green pieces of paper all the things we want to let go of. the things that stick more in our sides instead of allowing us to see our magnificence.
and we hold the paper over the candles. let the flames lick up the sides, before placing it in the sacred cauldron. we thank it for the purpose it played in our lives, and state that we want to move on. embrace the new, the healthy, the nourishing.
we each take another piece of paper, and write in a big love heart the things we DO want in our lives. what we want to manifest.
and we keep these close to us. we will dream these babies into existence.

we walked back, feeling lighter. cleaned away. as though we had just put down large suitcases of baggage. at work, we become consumed with the idea of cleaning out, throwing away, clearing space for the new to grow. i go through my backpack and find things i have been (literally) carrying around on my back for a year now. stuff i don’t want to carry around anymore.

there is a lightness in our step.
a vibrance.
like turned soil, we drink up the rain and begin to nourish the new seeds waiting to germinate.

“You think of yourselves as humans searching for a spiritual awakening, when in fact you are spiritual beings attempting to cope with a human awakening. Seeing yourselves from the perspective of the spirit within will help you to remember why you came here and what you came here to do.”

angels surround us…

by Leonie Dawson on November 22, 2005

and i am coming to see
that angels surround us
always

look closer into the eyes of the people beside you
and around you
look deeper and deeper
and you will see the earth angel.

there is divinity in every breath, every step, and every soul on your path.

“Life is a tapestry:
We are the warp;
angels, the weft;
God/Goddess, the weaver.
Only the Weaver sees the whole design.”
~ Quoted in The Angels’ Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

“All God’s angels come to us disguised.”
~ James Russell Lowell

“Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.”
~ Richard Purdy Wilbur

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
~ Michelangelo
