I have this bulletin board hanging in my kitchen.When I see a good idea I pin it on this board and wont take it down until I do it. Summer Solstice is approaching and I think it would be a marvelous time to dance under the moon with my Goddess friends - just like the ones dancing on that beautiful card above. What are your plans for Summer Solstice?
I have a yummy recipe for strawberry muffins on the board - I am going to make them later this week. I will tell the little ones and my husband that they are Goddess muffins (the girls have their Fairy Tea - it is only fair) then I"ll serve the muffins wearing the pretty circlet that I made at a past Goddess Circle. Perhaps, my girls will make Goddess Muffins for their children one day, it would be such an honor. And if the muffins turn out good I'll share the recipe and you too can make Goddess Muffins.
Last week, I was a bloated Goddess - I ate a lot of not so healthy, rich foods on vacation . I am back to feeling lighter and loving my normal diet of fresh foods, lots of dairy and of course some pastries and an occasional soft pretzel.
I go back and forth with meditation and yoga. Equally the same except one is motionless and one is not. Before vacation it was mostly meditation now I am back to doing yoga daily. I have so much energy flowing that I need the physical movement. I need to stretch. I need to feel my limits - then test those limits. I enjoy Kundalini yoga. Making the effort becomes effortless only after a week. Yoga is nourishment for my body and soul.
Nurturing the creative Goddess in me - ok humoring the creative Goddess in me. We have a very talented artist in our Goddess Circle (actually we have many) who gave us a demonstration on watercolor painting. Here is a photo of my first watercolor painting. I am proud of it because I left my comfort zone and took the process seriously. It was a fun endeavor. I learned a lot about myself and enjoyed looking at the other woman's interpretation of the same flower. Admittedly mine looks like Victorian era crap but it makes me smile every time I look at it - some may even see a hidden message!
A quick and short bulletin of what I am doing to honor my self as a Goddess. If I were to show you what my "inner" bulletin board would look like right now- it would look like a mess! I have a lot on my mind that it is hard to focus on one thing - but it is all good. It is Goddess Wednesday and I intentionally made me think of just me today. What are you doing to honor yourself?
Namaste and Happy Birthday Megan.
