Five years ago, myself and a group of Sisters took the journey towards Scared Feminity by way of Scared Woman initiation. The text and the women's desires for healing and enlightenment were noble. Some of the Sisters were looking to heal their sense of loss after hysterectomies, others were looking to resolve their sexual truamas and some were looking to increase their abilities as healers. I was there because the trend in my isolated consciousness community was to place value on the women that wore the white feather. I did receive the feather, although I honestly cant tell you where it is... I think it caught on fire? Siriusly I think I spilt wax on it or something. No worries, Ive found crow feathers work just a well.
The Rites progress through 'Gateways' and each Gateway is accompanied by correspondences. For me, this was the most valuable part of the whole process. Actually, the correspondences and the information about our dietary choices. One of the correspondences introduced Flower Essences. Life Changing. Y'all if you're not familiar, do the knowledge to flower essences. Similar to Aromatherapy, Essences are subtle yet powerful tools. In one word: Alchemical.
Which brings us to the purpose of this post. If you are living in the Americas, specifically North America then you are most likely aware of the geological and political *galampagoose* we are currently experiencing. I honestly cant think of another word to describe what's going on over here, as I feel I've over used chaos.. which is what it is. This galampagoose is a major threat as the weather has become murderous and the politics threaten the same. It is overwhelming. And so, coming out of The Kraken to witness its siblings prey upon other neighboring Southern states, then to watch the politicians pass legislations that only benefit their own legacies... I found myself fasting. Too much is too much. I refuse to surrender.... I increased my water intake 50%, reduced my food intake by 70% and logged off/turned off Media. "Peace, Peace, Peace." I also added Flower Essence.
Last night I used a general cover-all: Goldren Yarrow and one special for these times: Indian Pink. Circle Sisters Family, this morning I feel the difference. Yesterday my energy was scattered and very low; I was rationing my reserves. The curse of Sight, or Vision (3rd Eye) is sometimes you cant turn it off.... Thankfully, those Sages that came before us learned how to protect themselves on many fronts. Flower essence is one such protection. I need to run errands today so I gotta get out in the crowds. So as not to take on others' emotions and problems, knowing I'm sensitive right now I need a shield.. Flower Essences. In conjunction with my gypsy fresh, 'look but don't touch' flow.. .
