“When life is not coming up roses, look to the weeds and find the beauty hidden within them.”
–L.F. Young (in the Botanical Inspirations Deck)
After singing Ancient Mother, I drew several cards for the Creative Spirit Circle this week in a simple ceremony after a busy day with course edits and recordings for the Practical Priestessing and Red Tent Initiation courses. From Womanrunes, we received the Flame, which is always an important reminder to me personally of keeping my inner flame tended. What do you need to thrive? What is feeding your fire lately? What do you feel passionate and inspired about?
From the Goddess Guidance Oracle deck, we received the fiery and passionate Pele! This is a card of divine passion. “If you listen to the sound of your heart and breathe, you’ll recognize the ancient rhythms of your own internal drumming. This forever connects you to the Mother of all creation, and to the sound of planet earth. These rhythms can’t be faked or forged…” What part of you are you trying to ignore? What energy are you diverting into pleasing others rather than listening to your own rhythms? Listen to your dreams and do not be afraid of your own passions. “When you dance to the rhythms of your life, you’re truly alive in all ways.”
