“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

Creating a Medicine Journal . . .

The last few months have proven interesting and somewhat discombobulating. I started a new job, which I loved, but in the end found it wasn't the environment I had thought it was and so made the decision to leave. In such a short time, it left me defeated, lost and wondering where it all went wrong. My self-esteem took a hit and I'm struggling to find it back.

The last few days has found me sitting on the sofa in my sunroom with my birds and dogs, taking in their positive energy, and reading. The book I'm reading is called 'Ask and It Is Given' by Esther and Jerry Hicks. It's an intense book and I don't mind saying at times it leaves me somewhat confused. Just when I think I've got it, it's gone, and so without thinking on it too much, I get it . . . does that make any sense? It's like I know it intuitively, but my mind hasn't quite grasped the concept yet. And so I'm making my way through it . . . one page at a time. I think it's definitely going to be a re-read.

Today I decided to visit some blogs I haven't visited in awhile (sorry ladies!) and came across a lovely blog by Joanna named 'Sea Gypsy Magickals'. As I sat at my computer I had this overwhelming rush of energy course through me . . . it was incredible! I believe that Joanna has put her energy into her blog and that's what I was experiencing . . . I feel it every time I go there to visit, which is going to be often!

Joanna also shares her talent at 'Ravens Feather Studio' where I'm participating in her 'Divine Medicine Journal Workshop'. I'm a bit behind as she started the workshop in January. I made my way down to my studio and worked on the first pages of my journal. I still have a bit to do, but for the most part it's done and so I thought I'd share it with you . . .


My thanks to Joanna for taking the time to put these workshops together and I have to say that I really enjoyed creating today! I can't wait to get started on the next page!

One last thought before I leave you . . . I was getting a massage from my therapist the other day (whom I've been going to for about three years now, so she knows me well) and an interesting thing happened. I had been thinking about a chocolate donut all day. After my massage, Melanie asked me what I was going to do. I told her I was going to get a chocolate donut because I'd been thinking of it all day. She couldn't believe it! She said she never thinks of donuts and the whole time she was massaging me all she could think about was a donut! There was a lady waiting for her appointment and she said she got goosebumps and that we were channelling. Interesting . . . very interesting. And yes, I went and got a chocolate donut . . . y-u-m-m-y!

Oh this is lovely, I wish I was this creative.
I have recently begun my own Book of Shadows ~ but I prefer to call it my Book of Enchantment.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings~

It's funny how I landed on this posting because it's the second one down but I assure it was the first one when I landed - no doubt I was meant to read it.
I had no idea what you went through in your last job but completely understand. I'm sure you're on the right path again and it sounds like the universe has you safely in it's hands with the elements you have surrounding you (book & blogs).
I can completely relate to so much you talked about ~ thank you for sharing a part of you♥♥
