the secret of health, wealth and longevity:

when

Life

brings an end to

a

job

a

relationship

a

dream

   etc...

   LET IT GO…

stop trying to resuscitate that which is

  DEAD

release the

PAST

   and move on

the

    pain…   

to fully

feel

   grief...

   sadness...

to let it

wash

through

   me

leaving me

   cleansed

   purified

that there is an entire

BATTALION

of

Goddess-Warriors

   “Other Side“…

   supporting me…

   guarding…

protecting

   me…

especially from

Dead

Self

As I prepare to be

Born

   Anew

A Lesson Learned From Breast Cancer…The Great Messenger From The Soul…

Photo by Toni Roberts; "Childhood Memories"

“Childhood Memories” Photo by Toni Roberts

it’s a given

that when one is staring

Death in the face

one is more than willing to

go there

   you know…

that place to which we

jus’ ain’t goin‘”

but here’s the

good news

we don’t have to wait until

   our own demise is imminent…

and one disease or other

is hitting us

upside the head

with a 2 x 4

in order to finally

go there…

you can go there now

in the

bloom of health

and be not

devastated

nor

destroyed

by remembered horrors

endured by the

   wounded child…

   who remains…

   huddled in pain…

in a dark and hidden corner

of your heart…

Another Realization Along This Path To Wholeness…

It is imperative that I remember:

   All of the negativity that I see in the outer world…

   Which so disturbs me…

Is simply a reflection of my own

   Internal Shit…

   Which…

it would behoove me to begin

Clearing out immediately, consciously and conscientiously

   Before it all backs up

   And that will not be pretty

   And so…

As I continue on this Path

I remain ever mindful of that which the I Ching teaches:

You cannot fight corruption with corrupt motives

Injustice with self-serving interests

Or lies with hidden deception

Breast Cancer As Metaphor

Collage by Toni Roberts

Collage by Toni Roberts

I posted some of my “WiseWoman Wisdom” and realizations concerning the breast cancer “event” I experienced more than seven years ago. If you’re interested in learning what my “take” is on this whole matter of dis-ease, do read my blog: Breast Cancer and Repressed Mother Rage. You’ll find it at:

http://www.witchesandpagans.com/sagewoman-blogs/daughters-of-gaia.html

I’d be interested in your comments and feedback. I am curious to know if there are others who also see disease as metaphor or messenger.

You may comment directly at: http://www.witchesandpagans.com/sagewoman-blogs/daughters-of-gaia.html

Thanks for the input!

My River At Twilight

my river at twilight

my river at twilight

river at twilight II

river at twilight II

just sitting here at my window altar

gazing at the beauty of my river at twilight…

feeling a peace that is indeed beyond understanding

for this day was certainly not without conflict

but despite it all

right now

life just couldn’t be any sweeter…

just sitting here at my window altar

gazing at the beauty of my river

at twilight…
