Emergence…

Every morning, while having my first coffee of the day, I have a little ritual I run through to set up my day.

With the help of my rose quartz pendulum, I select an Angel Oracle Card to be my guiding principle for the day.

Next comes the choice of crystals to carry with me.

And finally I write up my Daily Greatness Journal, completing the intentions and inspired actions.

This morning was a little different. My daughter is home from university at the moment and she uses Earth Magic oracle cards. The card she chose for me was the Dragonfly. It’s such a beautiful image of a nature goddess emerging from the water, crowned with flowers, surrounded by dragonflies. Everything is vibrant.

According to the card I am emerging into the next cycle of my life. Well that would be my move from Mother to Crone. It goes on to inform me that this process is happening much more quickly than I have ever experienced change before, relentless. Yup! Most of the time these changes scare the crap out of me. Thank you for that, menopause.

The advice is to shed my ego-defences, sparkle, go with the flow, and gracefully (how the heck do I pull off graceful while scared?) move into the crone phase of my life.

If I come out looking a pretty as the dragonfly it will be worth it. Now where did I put my iridescent blue and green paints?

Wishing you all a magical Monday xx

My conscious life blueprint… work & career

It is often said that if you find a job you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. So far, I’ve spent all of my working life working so I guess the search continues.

Following the theme from recent weeks, I am completing the blueprint section for work and career. The first question has my attention.

“What do I want to do with the rest of my life?”

Cue a large dose of blue sky thinking. I think the best way to answer this is to not place restrictions in the mind. Answer it as if I have no responsibilities except to my inner child. What does she fancy doing?

Easy! Hand in my notice at work, write an amazing, life-changing book, live of the sales of said book and its sequels, and run wellness courses to coach perimenopausal/menopausal women in how to reclaim the fun in this part of our lives. This looks more like a mission statement than an answer.

“Am I willing to take measured risks to pursue my dreams?”

Yes I am. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. That said, I still have bills to pay and a pension to pay for so I need a steady income.

“What new skills would I like to develop?”

I have a big wish list. In no particular order, here it is –

  • Crystal therapy
  • Aromatherapy
  • Angel Oracle Card Reading
  • Kitchen-garden witchcraft

Now to find the time to combine my entire wish list with my paid job so I can give my inner child the time of her life!
