… more about My Shero’s Journey

I continue here from yesterday’s post with parts 4 and 5 of the 7 labyrinth pieces created for this series:
4 – When things fall apart …
5 – Discovering direct contact with the Divine …

Click play to hear me read both pieces in this post in a single recording (3:02)

The remaining two pieces to be shared tomorrow begin as follows and continue the thread:
6 – The journey led me …
7 – Many are called and waking up …

I close with the same Thought for Today as yesterday:

“How might your life have been different, if, deep within, you carried an image of the Great Mother? And when things seemed very, very, bad you could imagine that you were stitting in the lap of the Goddess … held tightly, embraced at last. And that you could hear her saying to you, ‘I love you … I love you and need you to bring forth your self.'”

Judith Duerk, Circle of Stones

    You have tremendous courage and grace. These are beautiful vignettes, poetic and vulnerable and real. Very many times, I found myself wondering…are those her words, or my own? Is she speaking, or is that me? We share a similar journey, and even similar stops along the way. Keep writing, sister. Keep writing. The universe needs your courage, grace and vulnerability to inspire us all.

      I appreciate your support and encouragement, and knowing my experiences resonate with your own warms my heart and emboldens me to continue. Sometimes it feels as if I’m publishing in a vacuum … especially when no one comments other that spammers (I get hundreds of those and am grateful to Askimet for filtering them out, saving me the hassle of deleting them). That said, I’m not sure I’m ready for a BIG audience just yet either … so sometimes it’s okay just to allow myself to put these out there without concern for whether or not anyone is seeing them. It’s like getting used to swimming in the public waters, without the crowds.

      The ideas you shared so generously in the Get It Done Facebook group Sam maintains for us are printed out and posted on the wall where I’ll be reminded of them until I take action. I’m grateful. I’ve not yet inscribed the journal you ordered because the muse took me elsewhere this morning … (troubling technology issues ate up time as well since my printer wouldn’t talk to the computer making it impossible for me to scan labyrinth pieces or print mailing labels)… so I appreciate you being flexible about the time frame. Methinks the problem is resolved for now.
      Hugs and blessings,
