“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ~ John Lubbock
Goddess is opulent and profuse. Berries are thick and dripping on the vines, begging to be added to pies and other summer treats. Gardens give forth ample sustenance daily. The air is heavy with humidity and we lift our faces eagerly at the hint of a breeze. Goddess is capricious now as well, bringing storms to break through the heat and shake things up. I had forgotten that light stays longer here in the North and I love my late summer evenings on the porch, watching the fireflies light up the yard and the bats swirl and dart at dusk. The weather begs for a proper sleeping porch to take a lazy nap through the humid afternoons or to cool off at night. The shores of Yemaya are calling and I hope to get down to the beach for a day or two this month!
How are you spending your summer and July? How is Goddess manifesting in your season?
June and July are very special months personally, as I celebrate and give BIG gratitude for MotherHouse and Mystery School of the Goddess birthdays! MotherHouse is four years old and Mystery School is three – AMAZING and so much of that is due to all of you, the contributor for MotherHouse, and the instructors for Mystery School. THANK YOU for being part of this beautiful expression of Goddess in the world!
Stay tuned for info coming this week on the very special Feast of the Magdalene Mini Summit that will be happening June 20 – 22. It is free and we are so honored to have presentations from Margaret Starbird, Elizabeth Cunningham (Maeve Chronicles), Lauri Ann Lumby, Renee Starr, Katherine Skaggs, and Mary Petiet!
Blessings of Summer and July … take time for lazy pauses and sun-soaked meditations!
