Hola my dearest Goddesses,

I’ve been out at the farm making videos all day & running around after a Very Cute Baby & a Very Long To Do List.

And this was supposed to be all brilliant & magical & smart.

And I was supposed to write it roughly 28 days ago.

And I haven’t yet.

Because of that whole needing to make it perfect thang.

But I need to tell you about it, and if I wait for perfection & a lightbeam of brilliance from heaven… it will be way too long away.

I just want to send miracles OUT into the world, ya know?

No over-obsessing about stuff!

So here goes!

The Thing I Need To Tell You

There will be FOUR circles running for each of my e-courses very very soon.

This means that you’ll get to work through my e-courses (whatever one calls to you) with a tribe of goddess sisters at the same time.

It means you’ll get a tremendous amount of support & sisterhood & impetus to actually FINISH it & derive a super duper amount of extra goodness out of the course.

You can do one or two or all of the e-courses:

  • Radiant Goddess e-course: Perfect if you are wanting to stop feeling sluggish in your body & really want to start feeling RADIANT instead!!!
  • Creative Goddess e-course: If you’re ahankering to get more creative, this course is bloody awesome. Also the perfect “Beginner” Goddess course & my most super popular one.
  • Creating Your Goddess Haven e-course: Declutter & decorate & make divine your house. Make it a sanctuary, ya know? Also includes brilliant space clearing tips.
  • Business Goddess e-course: If you’re wanting to start your own creative/spiritual business, or really grow & build the one you already have, this e-course is a HUGE boost of marketing mojo & business smarts & tons of actionable stuff to DO RIGHT NOW.

When do the circles begin?

July 30.

How do I sign up?

Become a Goddess Circle member. And you’ll of course get everything else included in the membership too!

AND payment plans are still available here.

And do go and check out the new beautiful testimonials from goddesses who are sharing about the miracles that the Goddess Circle has brought into their lives. It just fills my heart.

Okay!!!

That’s all I needed to share.

Can we please form a support group called Perfectionists Anonymous so that we can get over ourselves more often & just dooooeeeeeeeeet already? Share what’s inside us?

I feel all creatively constipated when I try and make it perfect.

When really, all it needs to do is flow.

(ho ho ho!)

Off to bed I go!!!!

All my love, The Creative Enema-ed,

P.S. If I managed to make that all sound mega confusing, or if you have any questions at all, can you please email me, and me or my darling support goddess Marissa will be uuuuuber happy to help :)

P.P.S.

Top 10 Spiritual Novels

by Leonie Dawson on June 27, 2011

Hola gorgeous Goddesses!

I heart me some books that are gorgeous stories AND spiritual teachers all at once. Here are my double kisses like ze French do recommendos…

1. The Red Tent – Anita Diamant

When me and Mr Soul Hunk went to the CalmBirth workshop, our teacher was sharing about how women need a dark, safe, sacred space to give birth in.

Chris said: You mean like a red tent right? Women need the red tent to give birth!

(The Red Tent is an ancient tradition of women who have their menstrual moontime staying in a red tent – a place of women’s wisdom.)

And our teacher gaped at him.

“You’ve read The Red Tent?” she asked.

Usually this book is considered a woman’s read.

“Oh yes! It’s probably the best book I’ve ever read!” he replied.

So yus. This book really is that good.

When I finished reading it, I put my head on the table and cried for a long, long time. This book utterly opens you up to the depth, width, fullness, extremity of life. Full full full.

2. The Mists of Avalon – Marion Zimmer Bradley

If you’re wanting to delve more into Avalon or the Goddess tradition, this is the book to do it with.

It’s kinda historical, kinda mythical {depending on what you believe in}.

But once you’ve met Morgaine? Your life is changed.

3. Shirley Maclaine – The Camino

I didn’t realise Shirley Maclaine – that gorgeous flame-haired actress – was intensely spiritual. Then I read this scrumptious book and realised just what a gorgeous, intuitive soul she is.

This is her diary of walking the Camino trail in Europe, and the spiritual awakenings she has while doing it.

Miraculous.

4. Kate Forsyth – The Witches of Eileanan series

Can I just warn you up front that this is not rated for delicate petals? If you are super sensitive like me, think about whether you want to read this fantasy series or not. I decided it would be worth it, and skimmed over the parts that were too intense for me.

Now that warning is out of the way – these books really are beautifully written, and evoke memories of what it would be like to be a woman of the ancient, herbal, healing ways again.

5. Mutant Message down Under – Marlo Morgan

This is the story of an American woman who goes walkabout with an Australian Aboriginal tribe through the Outback, and witnesses their healing and intuitive gifts. There is debate about whether this story happened or not. I do believe in the miracles that happen in this book… it really is a beautiful story about the wisdom of the Australian Aboriginal people.

6. Way of the Peaceful Warrior – Dan Millman

I remember reading this book for the first time. There is a particular moment in there that stands out as being kind of an awakening about death for me – about how we really are all going to be okay.

But anyways. I digress. I think this novel is really wonderful – and is especially good for menfolk. My Dad-in-law loves it!

7. The Celestine Prophecy – James Redfield

And I’m finishing with the book that started it all for me. When I was 17, my dorm headmistress at boarding school gave me this book. Funnily enough – I saw her again just a couple of weeks ago after ten years apart. She is still luminous. We still love to talk about spirit. And synchronicity abounds – she was re-reading this book when we talked.

This book was the first spiritual book I read, and it opened a world for me.

Yup… That’s seven books. I want to make the remaining three based off your recommendations!

What are your top spiritual novels? Let me know in ze comments, dearheart!
