Sneak preview of fascinating unfurling and new birth: I had a beautiful reunion and dinner a few weeks ago with "Paloma," the client who upends my work / world in my memoir. She gave me this gorgeous necklace made out of small labradorite pieces, the magical stone of shamans, she said, powerful in raising consciousness and increasing psychic abilities, protection, and serendipities and miracles. It was such a beautiful and special gift, I wanted to save it for a special occasion. Plus I'm so used to and attached to my jaguar jade turtle as my everyday stone as it lays right on my heart, I was reluctant to just switch necklaces.
Guess what? I left it in the center of the labyrinth! Mind you, I'm obsessive about where I put it the moment I take it off. The funny thing is that I had gotten a glimpse of the ancient spiral Goddess while walking the labyrinth (not not knowing that it was in the center), and kept looking for her. Of the many trinkets and shiny treasures on the labyrinth, she stood out the most to me.
Apparently, turtle thought so too and even felt it was necessary to stay behind for me to feel a bit naked and look for another necklace to wear instead. The labradorite necklace called out to me: on an ordinary but special day, thanks to feeling renewed and reborn with powerful snake and spiral medicine.
Serendipitously, through a brand-new but lovely online connection with Carla at www.youyourbestsanctuary.etsy.com on instagram, labradorite and I met again. Carla's tree woman Goddess emerged to show me how to Re-Tree-T myself and other awakening Amazon Wisdom Goddesses. Needless to say, she is in the mail and on her way to me . . .
She also showed me her face. Apparently, this Gaia Goddess has been with me for almost 10 years, patiently waiting as a wall flower until I opened my eyes and really saw her. She is now the face of phase 2 and gracing the cover of my handbook in progress, social media handles, retreats, and online offerings and programs. Just thought I'd share the magic behind my creative process and offerings with you, my lovely, supportive soul tribe.
