Gratitude & Garbage Bags

I  woke up this morning my head all a mess and my mind depressed. One week into the new presidency and oh shit! This dicktator is already shaking the stability of America. My mind is going a mile a minute thinking of the millions ways I can protect and provide for my tribe because the way of life as we known it is changing rapidly. I commend Governor Jerry Brown on his recent stand up for all Californians even though it means the government will not give our state funds if we do not comply to the rules and demands of the new legislation. And yes I know this affects all of the United States, I'm a soul rebel who feels for the world in whole.

Besides the outer world mental interference I'm going about my home life with gratitude in my heart. We are all well and have everything we need at our finger tips. There is excess that I like to tidy up and donate as the seasons change and children grow. My mode of donating was boxing it up and dropping it off at a local Goodwill. A thought hit me hard and changed my mind this morning. I live in the ghetto, poverty is just around the corner literally. As I drive my children to school you will see tent city after tent city, under the over passes, on the bike trail,  lost souls generally roaming around. The people in immediate need of my goods are right there in front of me and are a part of our community. Today is a call to action and tomorrow is a call to service.

The teens get a day off from school tomorrow and instead of going to the movies we will be dropping off the bags of clothes, blankets, and other goods we gather today to those not so far away who are freezing and in need of the basics . Even if we run the risk of getting ticketed by Sac P.D. we are going to do what is an act of humanity because all lives matter. How can we make this small spark spread into a wildfire that illuminates instead of scorches? I pledge to do what I can, how about you?

Powwow with My Inner Guide

Today I was drawn  into a meditation by Dr. Mary Pritchard during the Soul Driven Success SummitAfter my meditation I decided to write about my experience. Music helps my brain in numerous ways so I went to seek some tunes to set the tone. I was shocked to hear new music on Pandora I hadn't heard before and was even more amazed that the symbol I received in my meditation was also on the album cover. Coincidence.....I think not.The meditation guides you to take deep breaths and mentally travel to the warm heart centered place were your Goddess, spirit guide, or higher self resides. So here is the story of my recent travel.

As I slowly tiptoe to the warm glow that is awaiting me in the teepee, I stop and stare up at the full moon and appreciate the glow that illuminates my flesh. The breeze whispers "woman who glows in the dark". Inside the teepee Spider Woman waits for me to join here around the fire. Spider Woman has been with me since I was 2 years old, and visit me in all stages of maiden, mother, and crone. Once I enter the teepee the flames ignite and burn brighter than before. Now is the time of asking. "What is my purpose here on earth", I ask because I'm still trying to figure out my soul mission. "You already know", she hisses and stares so deep into my eyes that a warm buzzing is felt in my brain and heart. The flames die down and then comes the smoke. In the smoke is a symbol that looks like a v with horns coming from the middle.

Coming out of the meditation I was confused with what this symbol represents. First google searches had me confused. I went next to Pinterest and typed in symbols with a description and boom it popped right up! Now let me tell you what brings the light to my eyes and what brings me joy. I love to work with earth, create, and heal! So now as I reveal the sigil to you it shall give you a glimpse of what is to come in this new year.

Side Note: Due to my bipolar depression I have been experiencing many dark nights of the soul. I have been in slumber rest mode since Christmas but believe I'm waking up again and moving forward. Love and light to all who know exactly what this means.
