The past ten days have been very positive for me. The healing and learning that I was able to experience have allowed me to feel rejuvenated and re-energized in every aspect of my life. I have returned to work, but in a positive and healthy situation, and I am enjoying being productive and useful again. I have been able to re-establish a healthy balance of work and life and my physical health has returned as well. I am sleeping well and eating well and I go to work and return home feeling happy and alive.
This has resulted in a renewed ability to engage with my loved ones, my purpose and artistic expression, all of which are necessary for me to be happy. I have been able to spend time in the natural world, reconnecting with the magick around me. I have been able to spend time with my Beloveds and time playing with my Pwca. I have been able to dream and to imagine and to engage more fully in my daily practice. All of which has been about regaining that which I had lost during the time that I was struggling but, there have also been new perspectives, new ideas and new plans.
I have committed to joining a local women’s business forum. I will be participating in a local writers group to gain feedback and motivation to finish my book projects that have lost momentum. I will be actively practicing massage again and riding horses at a local barn. And I will be seeking out opportunities to experiment with other forms of expression, pottery, painting, stained glass and dance. I will be engaging more with all of those things that inspire my passions and engage my mind, heart, soul, body and spirit, and in ways that I never have before.
One of the most significant changes has been my perspective on who I am, of how I see my own identity, both magickally and in my mundane existence. I am a strong person. I am intelligent, opinionated, knowledgeable and curious. I have valuable gifts, talents and skills. I have a wealth of light and shadows and compassion and the capacity to recognize and appreciate those in others.
I am beginning to see myself more accurately, more clearly. I am beginning to recognize that I have much of value to offer. I can learn and improve upon those skills that I have not yet mastered. I can ask those who know more than I to teach me. I am a deserving student, worthy of a teacher’s time and effort. This is a very new realization for me and it is a necessary one if I am to serve my Beloveds, my Gods, my Ancestors, my Allies, my Community and my World.
I look forward with anticipation and enthusiasm to the renewed journey and to the many new lessons and opportunities to be discovered.
