Circle Sisters 13
For me, Arachnids have represented Creativity, specifically Creative Writing. Anansi The Spider that carried African folk tales and Grandmother Spider that carried the Creation myths of Indigineous peoples. So to have an Orb Weaver choose my front door to spend a few of her days is an honor. Yall know we #SoEarthy at CircleSisters13.com. I was asked why I didnt kill it and destroy the web. If she was a threat then most certianly, without question. But she's not. So it would be murder.... Nah, Im kidding. But it would be unwarranted. The Spider isnt bothering me, actually its eating the gnats and mosquitoes tryna get inside. So I would do myself a disservice. Plus, I welcome the energy Spider represents- Mastery & Creativity. If NTRs wants to send me a tiny dose of encouragement to keep writing and living creatively while trapping my ambitions w/ precision then So Mote It Be. Selah.
Fridays R 4 Lovers.. And whats the first requirement? Self Love. There must be a love for Self before all others. And if you are journeying on the path of the Wise Women, then Sisters you better make sure you have that Self-Love ingrained in every fiber of your body. Because when you agree to walk this path you also agree to it's tests and trials. And they can be pretty rough, it really depends on how far you want to go and what you want to accomplish. Its easy to look around and compare yourself to others. I don't recommend it. We never know what contracts others make with their destiny. The folks that seem to have it easy may not be pushing against anything, or they may be really great actors. Or they may have started with more and therefore are able to skip a few challenges.. or, we may not recognize that they are going through the same thing it just doesn't look the same because we don't recognize what we're looking at. Again, don't compare yourself. And when the opportunity presents itself ask, they might be honest about their wins and losses. If they are witches, they might not tho. Illusion is a powerful spell.
Self-Love. Self Awareness. This ensures your receptors are working properly and you are attuned to what is happening in your heart, mind and body. So much so, you can feel when your hormones release themselves. Just recently Ive been involved in some chaos at work with someone else trying to push their agenda on me. Which typically wouldnt be a thing, I would sidestep and keep it moving. However, they are in an authority position and have more power within the organization. And if I allow for their agenda then I would be penalized and set-up to loose my positioning. (Which still might happen because thats the way the corporate cookies crumble.) Self-Awareness. My mind was at a level of peace because "Witches Don't Worry." However my stomach was going crazy. I couldn't figure out why I was starting to feel sick. So I took a meditative moment to check-in with myself and I quickly became aware that while my mind convinced itself that I was okay, my nerves said otherwise. Thats a wisdom that comes with Shadow work- admitting when we are not okay. So I did what I needed to do to assure myself I was good. Forreal, Witches Don't Worry. Pinon and Haitian Rum to feed my pot..... Ase.
Self Love. In the situation I just mentioned I also have to analyze Why? Why was this able to come and sit in my yard? Where did I not see 'it' walking up the road? Which to me is just as important, especially moving forward. Then I need to access how I am reversing the energy or how Im ensuring I proceed in a way thats most beneficial. Whats the most strategic way to handle 'warfare'? Again, ode to Shadow Work. Its taken admitting my own flaws and where I was/am in error. Im also taking a lovingly firm look at 'my current situation.' Re-evaluating my goals. Am I aligned with my Purpose? Am I on the path of least resistance? (Thats a future post: The Path of Least Resistance. Im seeing now that while operating in the flow is a feminine birthright, that flow very well could also be a program designed to trap us. Discernment holds the key. Hmmmm...) I have much I will accomplish. However, Im seeing that to do so requires that I tighten up and make my circle even smaller. Mostly tighten up my thoughts which will affect all else. Making my circle smaller means I will be more conservative with my energy. Self Love.
Im wild as the wind... Heaven help me. Y'all send me some love.
Always Practice Fire Safety!
