Good moooorning gorgeous Goddesses!
Today is Monday… our happy new day for checking in & sharing about our journeys on this amazing Goddess Journey we are on… It’s a Monday because… da-dah! I changed my days around at work so I can start my week with two days of goddess goodness!
Hello new balance & happiness!
When we do Goddess Journey check-ins here, we get to connect and share where our week has taken us, what blessings we’ve been gifted, what challenges we have faced, what lessons we have learned… and what we need right now.
Let’s cosy up on a big purple couch with large mugs of tea, and connect-in and share about our journeys this week. As always, you can share if you’re called in the Comments Circle.
Easter Miracle Week
This past week has felt like Easter week. Funny how that works! It’s felt new with beginnings and possibilities and synchronicities. Which I’ve taken to calling my very own Easter miracles.
There’s been little-but-big things, like: friends falling in love. And our sweet puppy Charlie-the-Happy-Healer-Dog getting really sick and then getting a whole lot better.
I have a dear friend. I call her Sone. I talk about her a lot.
Anyway, for the last four years, we’ve lived four hours drive away from each other, and subsisted on half-yearly visits and emails.
And during our workday, we’d email each other saying:
How good would it be to meet up for lunch right now? I wish we lived closer!
Then last week, Sone got a job here. In my sweet little town. And two days later, she moved into our little cottage. Can anyone say OMG!GIRLSLEEPOVERPARTY4EVA? My love loves her, my puppies are infatuated with her, and I totally adore her.
We’ve been drinking jugloads of tea, reading oracle cards for breakfast, lunch and dinner and having silly Twitter three-way convos. (Yus! My hottie has joined up! He’s @Shamancrow. And Sone is @scootersonya. And I’m @GoddessLeonie. Holy dinger, we feel all 2009 right now)
Sone’s staying here until her husby & ginormous doggy (also named Charlie) can move here. And then they’re going to live on a farm & have a ridinkulous amount of animals & we’re going to make tipis on there. Happily ever after.
So it feels a lot like the beginning of that happily ever after.
And I’m so very, very, very excitable that one of my dearests is fulfilling our email prophecy. Things are starting to look holy-smoking-amazing-fun around here.
Speaking of holy-smoking-amazing-fun
This week also was the beginning of a new circle. One that feels organic and whole and ripe and true. With Sone now here, our little gathering of women is complete.
I keep telling Chris about the first gathering of us. How I keep nodding my head and getting teary and laughing just at the miracle of what happens when the right people get together at the right time. When women gather, miracles happen. Every time.
A couple of nights ago, in the moonlight, the four of us found a beautiful red rock and grass labyrinth. And we walked it, bundled in scarves and shawls. And in the centre was the most beautiful tree and the most ancient rock. And I curled up on the ancient rock, and had one of my most profound experiences so far in my beautiful life: I had a Conversation with God. And God was Mother Mary.
I’m completely touched by it all.
When Chris asked me to recount what happened there, there on that rock, I well up with tears. I well up because I remembered in that moment how loved I am and how all my questions are already answered.
There’s so much to say, and yet nothing at all.
Just love, and light, and Easter miracles.
I usually share each week about my challenges from the week. This week has felt so full of newness and kindness and miracles that I can’t even think of one challenge.
Except this. This one I keep ignoring.
I have a project I’m working on.
One I dreamed up three years ago.
One that still isn’t finished and sent out into the world.
One that challenges me and enthralls me and teaches me and is some of my biggest work yet.
And one that’s challenged me so ding dang much that I have ignored it successfully for quite some time.
And then I get a reading, and invariably it will come up:
There is big work you need to be doing right now, and you can’t keep ignoring it.
And I have been.
As Chris says “That’s fine honey. You can keep on ignoring it. And you’ll keep on getting told.” I love that man. I love that he calls me on my stuff.
So, I want to put my little challenge out there. Into the sunlight of a new day, of Easter, of a new phase.
And I want to ask for help. With a little love letter/help wanted ad to the universe.
Dear Universe, here is my help wanted ad.
Goddess seeks amazing helper/s in all forms for help in getting this big, beautiful project finished and out there.
The project you’ll be helping on is super-duper Goddess sacred. It brings tears to my eyes whenever I think about it. It’s touched every woman that’s been involved. And it will bring so much insight into this world when it’s shared.
About you: You’re adorable. You are a helper from any or every form – spiritual guide, friend, dream-cheerleader, productivity-coach, animal, earth angel, support system, supporter, assistant or sacred project helper.
About me: I’m Leonie. I need help from the universe. I’m funny, and I’m passionate, and some pretty amazing things can come through my hands when I’m ready for them.
What I can offer you in exchange: I’m not sure. I’m not even sure what help I need. I just know to ask for it. And that we can work out something in the process.
What I need from you:
I know this project is big work. I know this project is profound and what I (and women everywhere) need. I also know that I’m finding it hard to do it, and I need some help. I need your help and support in getting this project finished, sent out and published. I need to share it with the world. I need to be able to do this while being happy, sane and joyful. I’m open to all the ways you can help.
I love you already. Thank you for your help.
Applications can be sent to Goddess Leonie C/- God & Goddess Cottage of Gladness.
