Practicing Together #15

Seed thought taken from Leaning into Mystery’s “Practicing Together” weekly series.

I noticed a slew of harvest signs: a snake getting ready to shed her skin, a spider laying in wait by the water, the honking of geese as they passed overhead. I also noticed that three druids and a toddler can pull of a pretty damn fine ritual. And boar sausage is wicked tasty!

This week, I invite in family. Family by blood, family by law, family by circumstance. I love you all and I want to make sure you know it.

Ways this could happen: Making tasty food, phone calls, emails, tea, and booze are all possibilities. 🙂

What went well: I did a lot of ruminating and soul searching last week. I’m learning to make friends with anger, to use it as an indicator of when things aren’t going right, but not letting it control my reactions. Sometimes I’m better at this than others, but again, “what you practice is what you have.”

Updates: I’m feeling stronger, more confident. It’s been a long time since that’s been the case, and it’s damned refreshing. I’ve pretty much always been confident in my spirituality, but now I’m becoming so in my parenting and professional life as well. I’m ready for the change.
