Been referred to this beautiful prose – wanted to share it with you too ..
Here’s to WOMEN
WOMEN are WOW .. just face it!!
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up for injustice.
They don’t take “no” for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without new shoes so their children can have them.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a new marriage.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They have sorrow at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin!
Women do more than just give birth.
They bring joy and hope.
They give compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have a lot to say and
a lot to give.
This has been sent to you from someone who respects you as a woman!!! Pass it along to your woman friends to remind them how amazing they are and to all the men .. for a realisation to appreciate women more!!
Central England is starting to get decidedly autumnal. The wind has picked up, the temperatures have dropped [currently 8 degrees C – feels like 4 degrees C according to the wonderful Accuweather site] – time to get out the woolly pully I think.
Still, this is the time of year that brings out some of the most wonderful colours that Mother Nature has to offer. I am a Scorpio child so this is my favourite time of year. The trees were starting to turn red/gold/brown some weeks ago but then the process seemed to stop as the weather got warmer [28 degrees two weeks ago!] but now, we are on the decline and I expect the trees will start to shed their leaves very soon.
I like to spend as much time as I am able outside – I take a walk or a drive to a woodland or park and snap away with my camera and video. To be able to sit beneath the trees is a very special experience as is to hug them and I feel so calm and peaceful when I do so, it’s certainly something I would recommend you try. I’ll be posting up a few facts about trees and some meditations/exercises in the next couple of days so that you can experience it too.
For those of you in the UK I recommend this website – The Forestry Commission to help you locate your nearest woodland/forest.
There is a tree very close to where you live that longs to hear your dreams, hold your fears and support you when you need a friend [essenceofthewild.co.uk]
Good Morning Goddesses and welcome to the start of another week. It’s quite warm here in Central England already 16 degrees celsius at 9am which, for October, is pretty good. Have been slightly unnerved though with the online newspaper reports of a severe winter and -20 degree temperatures, all ready to roll in during late October/November – better wrap up for Samhain!
I have a Goddess Network Circle this week, we’ll be working with energy healing and feeling how the positive energy can enhance your motivation.
Chakra balancing – do you have any recommendations for online videos/audio for this, would like to expand my resources and I like to work by recommendation rather than plucking a site out of the air. Personally, I use Doreen Virtue’s CD but just wondering what else is out there on offer.
Another topic that always goes down well at the Circle is affirmations. Here are a couple for you:
- Every day I achieve greater balance between my thoughts and my actions
- Every day I allow myself a few moments just to be
Remember, when you use affirmations to always phrase them in the positive and in the present, that’s most important so that the subconscious mind uses them straight away.
Don’t forget, if you’d like to start a Goddess Network Circle in your locality, please contact me [see contact page on this Blog] and I’d love to tell you what’s involved in that. You will receive training and resources and it is a wonderful way to meet like minded people. For no obligation chat, get in touch. Thanks.
