Two Divine Videos For The Best Monday Ever

by Leonie Dawson on September 26, 2011

Hola my darling hearts,

Okay. SO.

There’s this magical woman I know.

Her name is Loran.

(Also known as Queen Loran, Priestess of them alllllllllllllllll…)

And she’s taken every single one of my e-courses, meditation kits & workbooks since time began.

And heckled me (lovingly) for ages to create a permanent online circle.

Then signed up for the Goddess Circle as soon it was announced.

And is now a Goddess Mentor there, helping goddesses settle in, washing them over with her loving heart, sage wisdom, and rampant giggle snorts.

She’s a Chief Donkey Rider Support Officer – for anyone who needs a bit of cheerleading, she’s there with her rainbow pom poms.

AND THEN SHE MADE THIS VIDEO:

And I proceeded to laugh so hard I wheezed off my chair.

She bought rainbow coloured pom poms. Just to shake for her internet goddess sisters.

AND THEN.

HOW CAN SHE TOP THIS?

She TOTALLY does.

This is for every goddess who is going through a hard time. Who needs love and encouragement.

It’s lovingly called “Giant Panda Balls suck”

(N.B. If you are a new reader, you probably have NO IDEA what we are talking about. That’s okay. You can catch up on donkeys and giant panda balls here.

I CAN’T STOP GIGGLING.

My heart is singing.

Anytime I get lost, I’m going to sing this over and over to myself…

“Giant panda balls suck! Gooooooooooo donkeys!”

Oh my goshness, women are miracles.

True story.

Forever love, wild women & giggle snorts,

P.S. DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK IF YOU ARE FAINT OF HEART OR DO NOT LIKE LAUGHING SO HARD YOU GIGGLESNORT. Goddess Dionne, another magical mentor decided to do biological research to investigate the Giant Panda Ball phenomenon further. All in the name of research. And gigglesnorts.

P.P.S. I’m pretty sure I just made your Monday. YOU ARE WELCOME.

This Week

by Leonie Dawson on September 23, 2011

Hola my darlinghearts,

You know what I miss?

Doing those random ye olde photo updates from Goddess Land.

Let’s get retro & bring ‘em back, yes?

So here’s what I’ve been up to tonight: finishing up painting signs for this weekend’s NQ Spiritual Festival.

And this is what we’ve been up to today:

having a creative goddess date at my darling friend Jewel‘s sanctuary.

Trish, Jewel, Mirella & moi

I’m amazed how this beautiful tribe has come together in the last two months.

I only just met Jewel two months ago – she is a Goddess Circle sister who kept emailing me.

And I kept having dreams about Trish, and she started having dreams about me, and we started connecting much more.

And then one day (after another dream where she asked me to come see her!) we came up with an idea to have a little gathering of soulful business goddesses.

And we both already had met Mirella & invited her.

And we invited a whole heap of other amazing women.

And the first meeting was just SO filled with love, and joy, and serendipity, and laughter.

And since then we’ve just connected like… I’m not sure what. It’s just instant kinship and sisterhood.

We support and inspire each other’s lives and businesses.

And holy guacamole, we are making such HUGE MIRACLES happen. Everywhere we go, magic flings from our hair.

All of us get a bit teary thinking how blessed we all are to have met each other.

Speaking of souls who are blessed to have met each other:

Starry & Jewel’s daughter Savvy fell in instant love the moment they met each other.

They are soul sisters, just like their mamas!

This was pretty much the whole day:

Savvy said today:

“I don’t have a sister. Can Starry be my sister?”

And we thought it was the best idea ever.

Starry did too.

Ahhhh.

Again and again I say:

When women circle, miracles happen.

And it’s seriously true.

Today was just magic. Everyday I get to circle with these women is just the best healing miracle I know.

What else have we been up to this week?

Falling in love with cockatoos & skies.

Remembering to see the situation from above.

One morning Ostara woke up, trundled straight out to the paintings we’d been working on the day before. Dragged the big ole canvas back into our bed, bringing paint & pencils with her.

And she made art.

And we’ve been road tripping – just down the road to the “big smoke” – Mackay.

We’ve only been once in the year we’ve been here. An hour in the car is about 45 minutes too long for our shining light Ostara.

But this time she fell asleep in her seat (woo!) and my love and I had a sweet date driving through the cane fields.

And then we got our fill of organic hippy stores & bookstores, ate some Chinese,

turned around and drove home.

It was perfection.

Tie dye hippy pants are the only suitable road tripping attire.

Over & over, driving through this sacred land,

my heart is so full.

I’m SO glad we came back.

I’m SO glad we stayed.

I’m SO glad we made it.

This tropical paradise of mine has been

and always will be

home.

Ostara started not liking the car before we got home.

After distracting her with food, books, songs & everything else under the sun, she got the ultimate prize:

her first go on daddy’s ipod.

Blissful silence for the rest of the ride.

Farm animal apps are pretty much the best thing evaaaaa.

(P.S. I’m totally laughing at my pre-baby stance on “no technology evaaaaaaaa”)

I also got the bug to do some rearranging.

Do you ever do that?

Decide that furniture MUST be moved now?

I totally do.

Chris does not share the same love of furniture moving as I do.

Which is cool with me – I close the door & move it all myself to my heart’s delight – and only reveal to him my plans once it is all done.

And then he loves it.

Yay!

(P.S. Our bedroom feels all nice & zen again after feeling a bit crowded lately!)

*

Also, I laughed so hard at this. Parents of toddlers, hoooo boy you are gunna love.

*

Also, my life is pretty much swallowed up entirely these days with birthing this beautiful baby:

Eight more days!!!

*

Was that fun?

I know right!

Me tooooo!

I’m off to bed my loves… off to dream sweet dreams all curled up between my two loves.

And my gorgeous North Queenslanders… see you this weekend at the festival! I’m giving a free workshop at 2pm Saturday, and will have my book for sale & maybe do a few readings… but most of all soaking up the gorgeous energy, hugging a LOT of people, running around like a wild mermaid fairy, and returning home with a LOT of bags of all the other market seller’s goodies. HEEEE!!! DREAM COME TRUE!!!

TO BED!!!! BEFORE I GET OVEREXCITED & DECIDE TO START ANOTHER PROJECT!!!!

Wild mermaid love & glorious soul sister sunshiney days,

P.S.
I really really reallllly want you to know this:
1. you are loved
2. everything is going to be awesome
3. YOU ARE A DING DANG GODDESS!!!! (Have I ever mentioned that?)

Important Things! To Tell!

by Leonie Dawson on September 21, 2011

Hola gorgeous goddesses!

Oh my loves.

I’m full in the throes of producing the 100+ interviews for the World’s Biggest Summit (which launches in ummm 10 DAYS).

And there is much to tell you.

But my brain is a bit blippish & it’s time to go to bed.

So, I’m just going to tell you, okay?

And I promise I’ll return to eloquent & well written post-nap.

In the meantime, I present:

DOT POINTS!!!!!!!!!

1. This weekend, I’ll be selling my book, running around squealing like a fairy, doing intuitive readings & running a mini workshop at the North Queensland Spiritual Festival.

If you are *anywhere* in Proserpine… I so highly recommend you come. The last festival was the most amazing, joyful explosion of goodness… and I know this one will be just the same.

I’ll be in a goddess island of stalls – me and five other Goddess Circle sisters have a whole isle of artwork and jewellery and photographs and cupcakes and more artwork.

Magic. PURE MAGIC!!! EEEEEEEE!!!!

I so wish you could all come!!!!!

(But seriously: come if you are anywhere in a 350km radius. It’s just the best festival ever!)

2. There are a few Dazzling Sponsor spots still available for the World’s Biggest Summit.

So if you want your beautiful thang in front of the eyes of thousands of amazing souls, jump on in.

I’m getting feedback from sponsors saying they have already made back their advertising doublers from sales – and the Summit hasn’t even begun yet!!!!

Completely fantastic!

and 3. (most important) I took some photos of Ostara in the garden last week, and they made my ovaries implode with happiness.

Evidence:

I am one blessed mama.

I am so glad this spark of light called Ostara is in the world.

*

I love you.

There’s so much magic brewing.

All my love, cuddles & naps,
