Audah, Aujah and I were talking last night during our Summer Solstice gathering - because of course we had one. Is what we're doing, like, a thing? And by thing I mean - realize and own our goddess-nature, take action around it and sometimes make others uncomfortable because they don't understand? I feel it rising in all three of us at amazing speed. Channeling it with love is the task at hand for me. I see how it's super easy to derail completely into "OMG, what would so-and-so think about all this?" or "Am I nuts?" when the reality is I'm not nuts. And, I kindly don't give a fuck what anyone thinks about all this. I'm centered in a state of love and light emanating out ceaselessly in the darkness of mis-understanding. I know this is True, with everything that I AM.
So we gathered for the solstice. Aujah hosted at her home and had created for us a giant altar with three seats for us to sit, chill and ruminate about how to best serve the planet. I delivered a snake that I had picked up for Audah. I rescued that snake from Ross Dress for Less on Friday night and spent the weekend charging her up at my house. This snake sat on my meditation cushion and guarded my "hippie locker" (my son's name for the cabinet where I keep all my incense and stuff). Audah named her Cleopatra almost immediately. Cleo, for short.
We ritualized the whole experience with a flower meditation and burning off what is no longer serving us. I asked to release the illusion that the ball's not in my court at all times. The ball is always in my court! As a sentient being, I have the power of choice in every breath of my life. Even if my power to choose only allows me to exude kindness and not take physical action. Even as my last breaths are being had on earth, I have a visceral sense that I could still choose who I AM until my last breath is gone...
May it be so.
