I am embarking on a voyage. I am tired of searching to find fulfillment in lovers, careers, my family and my friends. I am done feeling inadequate as if I can never win the race. I have decided it is time to invest more in loving myself and less in what other people think of me.
Miss Goodwitch is getting her stuff together! It’s time to kick it up a notch. I am not perfect. I don’t have all the answers. I doubt myself, feel the blues and have flaws like everyone else. So I decided that I need to get busy loving on me! Besides, you attract where you are at. So if I am choosing a life mate that honors and values himself, then I need to also.
Tonight I attended a Goddess empowerment group. It is a circle of women of all ages, spiritual paths, and cultures, that celebrate and honor our divine femininity, with love, mutual respect and inspiration.
As I stood there in front of at least twenty women, gathered in a circle of unity, I could feel the healing and love emanating from them as I shared my thoughts. I dedicated my energy to the intention of gaining more self-love and lit my candle. When I placed my lit candle, in the sea of other candles lit before me, the flames danced joyfully as if to acknowledge my request.
I felt God in the room. Like the burning embers upon the gilded dish, Goddess burned brightly in out hearts. We laughed, we yelled, we danced, we intellectualized, we cried, we flirted, we rejoiced and we were also oddly quirky. Every expression of womanhood was alive and present within our circle.
I am definitely looking forward to going back. I have already made some very special friends. It was also wonderful to embark on this journey of self discovery along side my very own Goddess, my mother. These are moments I will always treasure.
