Diamonds and Guns..August 2016

Sorry for the delay in posting this. How can summer be coming to an end already??

How I’ve been doing with my goals and intentions during August..

KNOWLEDGE- I still regularly try to identify nature when I find something new but I haven’t had as much time as I would have liked.

HEALTH- a bit on the back burner really haven’t been able to do much of my usual exercise and lots of long hours means I get a bit lazy about what I eat too…

MAGIC- had a magical shamanic weekend in St Osyth 🙂

SELF CARE- this has also slipped because of work, really need to make more effort to make some relaxing time which doesn’t just involve sleeping!

To heighten my spiritual work- I had no clients this month 😦 however I was a healing assistant at the shamanic retreat I went to, so I did do some healing on people there.

To get to Peru- I think other smaller trips are being planned first!

To honour seasons and moon- did my usual new moon and full moon work, and as it happened my women’s circle fell on the festival of Lammas, and we did a fire ceremony.

To cook more- I did make some cakes for the first time in ages!

go to Yoga classes- went to one class but only because I was on holiday that week, still can’t go around my work hours at the moment 😦

walk more often- less than I used to but did go for a few on days off

Not to be affected by other people’s stories- mostly ok I think.

have no expectations- think I’ve been okay with this.

manifestation skills- manifested somewhere to host a fire ceremony and a dry evening for it!  also manifested some days of work hitting target etc

WHAT I GOT UP TO

I had a week off work so took the time to do a few things at home and relax a bit. I went to my yoga class, I had my women’s circle and I held a fire ceremony for the first time and it went really well! I went to see my parents and then to end the week it was my weekend in St Osyth for an amazing shamanic retreat. I worked as a healing assistant this time and I also had a lovely surprise from Miguel of a blessing of our handfasting as it was not long before our 7 year wedding anniversary.

I went to see my grandad and his lovely dog Lulu one day.

It was a month of fire ceremonies as my friend Susan held a fire for a few friends although it wasn’t a really ceremony just a joyful get together and I also made a new friend on the night too who is interested in joining my women’s circle as well 🙂

It was our anniversary so on the Sunday before we went to The Railway Hotel for lunch and had a very tasty vegan ‘bacon’ polenta with avocado salad 🙂

We had a small circle social at another member’s house and it was a really nice evening.

I had to work one day at the Wickford store and it was horrible as it was sooo quiet as it’s a new store so people are still getting to know it’s there, and there was no other jobs to do either!

We had lunch again at the Railway a few days ago and this time I had a smoky tofu stir fry.

POEMS

hardly wrote any I don’t think, still not been very inspired by the daily prompts 😦

Amsterdam

A little house

Miguel and I were given

Seven years ago on our honeymoon

the hotel presented us with

endearing, they also gave us a clock

reminders of our stay

days of newly wedded bliss

adventures in amsterdam

married and in love.

Untitled and Unfinished

Long gone are my festival days

me and muddy fields have gone our separate ways

But the memories remain

of dancing in the rain

of not sleeping in our tiny tent

of all the pegs we bent

drinking premixed vodka and coke

meeting extremely random folk…
