There are times when I feel truly blessed.
Actually, that was a rather silly thing to say. I am ALWAYS blessed, and I’m mostly aware of it too. It’s just that at times I’m much better at allowing the feeling to surface, allowing myself to really notice how truly amazing life really is. This is one of those times, was what I meant to say with that first sentence.
The stress of quarter end in the company I work at is finally over. It was, oddly, fun as well as stressful – I like the people I work with and the managers, and I had a good quarter so it was nice to pull it all together in the end. It did take up a lot of time though, so I’m going to take things a little easy in the next few weeks.
I’ve got a lot to look forward to: The Féile Draíochtatomorrow – if you’re in the area, be sure to go there, it is SO worth it. It’s one place where you can be sure that you’ll get reliable information. The talks and workshops are all worth going to, and at an all-day price it’s a real bargain. I’ll be there until lunch, and take it easy for the rest of the weekend – I need a bit of time-out. But there’s more goodies to come, like a week’s holiday in the second half of this month, and three days in Berlin where I’ll see my sister and two of my nieces as well as their children (I have one grandniece and one grandnephew), and Peter Gabriel in concert. The last time I saw him live was in 1993, TWENTY years ago!! I can’t believe it’s been this long.
Another reason why I feel particularly blessed these days is the Tribal Community, which is slowly and organically growing into this amazing place of sharing. The people it’s attracted so far are the most radiant individuals, and if I look ahead all I see is this incredible synergy that happens when inspiring, wise people share and learn together. It gives me goosebumps to think of it! If you’d like to be part of it, sign up here – we’re just about to start the individual workgroups, so you’ll be right on time. All you need to bring is an open mind, the desire to communicate and share with others, and one or two times a week when you’ll log into the forum to read and post for a bit.
Our next upcoming project includes a Witchcraft 101 course in a private forum only visible to 3-15 people who will all take the course at the same time and share their experiences with the lessons and practical assignments. It’ll start on Monday, 14th October 2013, so now’s the time to join the community and sign up! Other upcoming projects are a herblore and an astral projection workshop. I can’t wait.
That’s pretty much it for me this week, although I am sitting on about half a dozen other ideas. I’m sorry to say they’re not all ready for sharing just yet, and really I need to pace myself too so I won’t burn out. I need plenty of time for myself in order to be of value in my work – and since that’s the most important thing in my life, I really need and want to be at my best there.
Tonight we’ll have a New Moon, a perfect time to be still and look inwards. It’s what keeps me in balance with all the activity going on otherwise!
