there are so many exciting things happening right now! I want to talk to you about my soul sanctuary garden, about the latest meeting of the Temple Dreaming Group, more about sisterhood and so many other things! But I have been down with another bug – I know, ANOTHER one, right? - and when I was up again I had so much fun finally building the little one's nest that I didn't get around to writing much. I have had to deal with so much during this pregnancy (manifesting a job out of nowhere, soul-midwiving my mum in her dying, all the practical things to take care of after her death), I have had so much to do and have been ill for so long, that only now, less than two weeks before my due date, I feel I have the space to realise that there will be a baby soon and get BLOODY EXCITED ABOUT IT! So I have been going through tiny cloths, searching for the newborn safety seat, getting the nappy changing unit ready, packing my birth bag and making lists of what we still need to get before the little one arrives. I've also been on the phone to my Dad, and we've arranged for him to arrive at our house two days before the due date, to already be here to look after my Apple Daughter when the little fish comes. This is a huge relief and help!!! Believe you me, it really does suck sometimes to live in a tiny family, with no grandparents, aunts and uncles around to help with the kids. Society needs to change. Anyway, I'm really happy my Dad is helping us there. All is good!
The beads that they have gifted me with have now become a beautiful necklace. I am so grateful for the sun and the warmth of Spring, and although I lit my candle on my altar inside the living room, I decided to make my necklace outdoors. I have ceremonially strung the beads this morning in my little garden, which IS my Soul Sanctuary. I burned some incence for the Goddess, called Her in and asked for Her blessings. Then I played my beautiful Blessingway Songs CD while weaving my prayers for a beautiful birth experience into the beads.
Much love and fairy and pixie magic to you all xxx
