We are three weeks past the winter solstice of 2012 and about two weeks past the calendar date of New Year’s Day. I held a ceremony on Dec. 21, 2012, at my medicine wheel with a small group of ladies as well as with friends who listened in via teleconference. New Year’s Eve and Day I spent quietly with family. Now this morning I stand near the medicine wheel, feeling the winter briskness under blue skies, feeling my connection to nature.
I begin to think about how we consciously recognized the new divine feminine energy as it came onto the physical plane. We didn’t experience any earth-shattering or catastrophic events as some predicted. The new energy quietly flowed in, and some of us even felt the shift or change some time before. I had been encouraging you, dear reader, to take stock in what feminine energy means to you, to create your own sacred ceremony marking the divine feminine’s new era, and I even invited others to join my ceremony.
I wonder how you will use your innate talents, gifts, skills and experience (wisdom) in the new energy. How will you express your gifts through the divine feminine? That is what my ceremony was all about. I made a list of my talents, gifts, skills and wisdom in order to appreciate all of them down through every lifetime, collapsing all those experiences into the present soul moment. Then I shared how I would express my service to my community through the divine feminine.
I intend to remember my definition of the divine feminine energies (love, peace, nurture, grace and resilience) and to consciously create ways to experience my life through that lens or focus. I do believe 2013 will be a fulfilling year!
