Spring has arrived! Today I woke with the sunshine squinting thru the clouds. Shortly there after the rain began to drizzle. With off and on showers all day, the sun broke out again in the afternoon with a warm healing breath that filled these old bones. Later the rain came back and then thunderstorms raged thru… Yes, spring in Oregon!
Spring brings new beginnings. Blossoms swell, and rainbows shimmer above the land. After a winter of cloistering deep within myself, I am ready to expand my perception of who I am and what I do in the world. This old woman is ready for a make-over!
Often times we shove ourselves into boxes and molds that family and friends choose for us. Expectations of others cage us and force us to bend into shapes that are unnatural for our souls. As we get older we realize that we need to become our true selves. Many layers of the Onion have been pealed throughout our life and the wisdom gained has become a hard won prize. We can look out at others dramas and be filled with compassion as we understand the wild confusion of youth.
Do you remember what it was like to be in your 20’s? What were your dreams? What were you experiencing? How did it feel? As Maiden can we go to the time of Crone? As a Crone can we go back to the energy of the Maiden? Yes! Life is cycles and circles. We can return again and again to the time of Maiden, Mother and Crone. As a young woman we can access the compassion and strength of the Mother or wisdom of maturity! That is what Intentional Creativity is about! When we create with mindful questions and focused thoughts. We can delight in the new things and find a knowledge we have never known before. We can enter the warm summer energy of Mother in our 80’s or we can find the autumn wisdom of the Crone in our 30’s. There is magic in Intentional Creativity.
What qualities are you wanting to approach in your current life? I am on a fresh journey, starting new things in my life, opening untried doors. Germinating a fresh spring start! In my 60’s I am becoming Maiden again! This time with the fresh ideas of youth, the sensitivity of middle age and the wisdom of life. I am on an Intentional pathway to my authentic self integrating Maiden, Mother and Crone within.
I will share with you how to gain your own access to the seasons of your life and to your own answers….
I AM REMEMBERING WHO I AM! I feel driven to create! I am looking forward to walking (Jumping, Crawling, Dancing) on this journey with all of you, into the Universe of Creativity and sharing this Magic with others... Tugging on the Red Thread just to say hello!
