Wolves and Ravens and Pagans, Oh My!
Today has been an interesting day so far. Not all good, but mostly good.
For starters, one of my new friend’s mother’s has gone to the hospital. Her health is not good as it is. I’m sitting by the phone today waiting to hear what’s happening with her. I’m sending out love, light and good energy to the recovery of her mom.
Second, a dear friend of mine had a spiritual experience today with my guidance. I will not give her identity, as that is hers to decide, but we had a very interesting conversation about totems this morning and I believe I helped her find hers and take one more step on a spiritual journey. It also further bonded our friendship and for that, I will always be grateful. You know who you are, Sister. All my love follows you on your journey, and I am always here if you need me.
Then, I get on Facebook and another very special person to me has busted the doors off the broom closet. She has come completely out and I’m so proud of her! I have known, almost as long as I have known her, that she was Pagan, I just wasn’t always certain she knew, and that is a destination that each person must reach on their own.
Over the years, she’s asked me questions about my own path, and I’m always willing to answer anyone that is curious. People who know me well know that I don’t believe in pushing my beliefs on others, but I’m always available to help anyone with enough curiosity and courage to ask. I’m so glad that she has finally found her way and I love her dearly, for a multitude of complicated reasons. If you’re reading this, Love, you know who you are as well.
Then, there is Mini-Me. She is learning possibly one of the hardest lessons of being an adult. She is learning about loosing and letting go. This is not easy for my little Virgo. She is often like a bull-dog on a bone when she sets her mind to something. She has been trying to hold on to something that has been gone for a long time and she just didn’t want to accept it. I know how that feels and I sympathize with her. I know how hard this lesson can be, and how painful. Sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you have to let them go. Sometimes they stay in your life in another aspect, but often, they don’t. My heart is with her as she faces this hard lesson.
So, as you can see, it’s been an active day. I thought about writing a post specifically on totems, but to be honest, I just don’t have the mental capacity to go into that much detail and research right now. My two main totems are pictured above. They are the strongest and most active in my life and they are complicated totems to have at times. Both are social and anti-social at the same time, which is how I’m feeling today myself. For now, I think I will go be alone with my thoughts.
