Archive for December, 2008

In my immediate family and also not so immediate- there are only 2 pagans- one being myself & I am Wiccan. The other my younger sister who is very eclectic indeed. Our families are well aware of our chosen paths and altho may be don’t understand all the in ‘s & out’s are happy for us – because we are happy. When it comes to the festivities of this particular season-  I had my own Solstice celebration on Sunday- which my family were involved in at some points during the day and now we are at christmas eve- and I will be involved in all that christmas entails with my family- ( I am the one who cooks) ( decorates) ( cleans) etc etc. Whatever religion- following- sharing in the joy and the celebrations with your nearest & dearest is the spirit of the season. Live & let live- an harm it none- thy will be done. Happy Yuletide.

Yule is soon upon us

Well, altho the last couple of months have been a painful depressing blur- they are just a memory and the road to recovery and normality is at hand. My family, My friends, My partner and many many people, myself included have had a tough old time of it. So it is always heartening to hear from old friends and catch up with distant family at this time of year. The net- altho not as personal- has actually helped me to find lost contacts aswell as be in touch with family members more often- via e’mail etc. I posted all my cards- all recycled- or from sustainable sources. I will be sending my Solstice/Yule e’cards on Sunday-to my fellow pagans- and my christmas e’cards to family & friends- christmas eve.  The intent to send out love & joy to nearest & dearest no matter how its done- always fills me with love & joy- the more I send out- the happier I feel and it is infectious too. Just like a smile. So thank the Goddess my optimism & joy for life is returning- I was beginning to depress myself a while back. Wishing you all a fabulous Yule and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too.

A quiet ritual of peace & tranquility was in order this evening- after so much negativity and illness around us- some respite was a blessing. During my meditation- I felt emotional- weepy- then in my warm little room- I began to feel enveloped in peace & warmth and a calmness all around. Slowly beginning to feel once again in control of my life- really looking forward to quality family time this Yuletide and starting to tick of the items on the long list of still to do’s. One step at a time- each day – One step at a time. Brightest Blessings.

Where’d the time go?

Already its the 5th of December- A whole month has flown by- the Flu episode was just after Halloween and allsorts of things have happened. The recession has hit hard in the UK & Ireland- as it has across the world. My father has been made redundant- my partner is now on permanent disability- my work hours have been cut- and a whole host of harsh negative vibes are going on all around. All we can do is go with the flow- what will be will be- take it day by day a step at a time. It is however difficult to be the optimist- but thankfully I have my partner- my children- my family & friends and letting it out- discussing the emotions- sharing these lows & the highs- it really helps. With the coming Yuletide celebrations and the time we will be spending with our familys- I am so thankful for the joy that this brings- and I hope that everyone finds joy & happiness this Yule. Brightest Blessings.
