Amulets and Invocations
I am working on a spectacular new project! I am lucky enough to be part of the first group to get Circle leader training from Weaving a Life. My instructor Susan Barrett Merrill (also the founder of Weaving a Life) is one of my favorite inspirations. She is consistently cheery on our telephone conversations and just a light and breath of fresh air.
I have just started the first key form, the amulet, known as the invocation. I am inviting courage and prosperity into my life in a real and in a spiritual way. When I remember my core values and integrate my love of nature, outdoors, animals, gardens I really feel whole and balanced. When I force myself to conform to the modern American idea of the successful working woman, I feel strung out and hopeless.
I made an amazing discovery the other evening when I was journaling for my leadership training. Get this- "Nothing's perfect. And that's okay." What a liberating discovery! Suddenly, the beauty in my life just shone through.
May balance find you.
