This weekend I had the honor of attending a full moon blessing with the most incredible group of women. Think of it as a modern-day bra burning—minus the angst and bra-burning. We lit candles, set goals, drank wine, and toasted our strengths. It was feminism in it’s purest, most positive form. Forget book club—this is what we should be doing each month!
I had a moment when we selected from a stack of goddess guidance oracle cards. Each card offers a message from a different goddess about how you can find peace in your life and follow your spiritual path. It’s not magic, it’s not fortune-telling, it’s about reconnecting with your inner goddess and intuition. I drew Sige, the goddess of silence, who told me: Shhh, dearest one. Quiet you mind. Meditate. Breathe and let go of words, worry and plans.
Perfect. I don’t meditate, and the most quiet I get is when I’m watching True Blood, from which a fire couldn’t drag me. I prefer spin class to yoga, preferably with pounding 80s music. I was busted so many times for talking in class, it’s a wonder I got any A’s. Basically, all roads lead to me needing to get quiet. I’ve always known that. Maybe I’m afraid of what I’ll hear in my own head? I don’t know, but I’m going to unleash my inner goddess and find out!
Are you good at stillness and quiet?
