Counting Down the Days

By Me!

I absolutely cannot wait for next Friday – my first official day as writer, artist, and solopreneur extraordinaire. What will I do on my first day of self-employment? Wake up when my body says it’s time to wake up, workout early in the day, work on my e-book, write my heart out, network, paint, and generally be all kinds of giddy that I have so much time to do what I want. I might even take a nap. It’s the rhythm of nature, you know, to take naps?

I’ll be doing a lot of writing over at The Sacred Middle, if you care to take a gander, but I won’t forget Ophelia Blooming. This blog has been my fairy child for so, so long and I’m sorry to have ever abandoned it. I want to share with you my attempts at painting fairies and mermaids, videos about poetry and tea, creative quests, and whatever else my little brain thinks of when I’m trying to go to sleep at night.

I smile just thinking about it! I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait!!!

Believe in Fairies

Everything Changes

Things are changing again. Just like last time, I knew it was coming. If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile you know the last big change was 3 years ago when a relationship failed and everything I had imagined for the future went up in ashes.

Unlike last time, I knew this change would be something exciting. My soul jumped around in my body and demanded adventure.

That’s why I decided to resign from my cushy, comfortable job and go at it alone. Be my own 
boss, write my own story. As of August 2nd I am no longer walking someone else’s path.

Do I know what’s going to happen? No clue. Am I scared? Absolutely. My only plan is to do what I love, do what inspires me, and have a whole lotta faith. If my future is anything like my past, I know I will be taken care of.

How about you? Any “life quakes” happening in your world? How are you coping?

I feel like I'm moving into a sacred light.

A divine space where I am guided, inspired, strengthened. 

There was a moment today when everything around me just kind of disappeared and I felt a great sense of gratitude, like my spirit had settled into my bones and sighed. 

Tomorrow is a day off and I'm going to juice it for all it's worth.

Maybe I'll finish the painting of the girl with turquoise hair.

Maybe I'll write something for The Sacred Middle.

I've been thinking about circles lately and how they play such a huge part in nature and in everyday life. I want to draw a mandala that represents the sacred middle. I want to start a women's circle where I can connect with other women and share secrets, thoughts, tears, and laughter.

Circles are everywhere - they are the thumbprint of God.

And isn't it magic that we are made of galaxies and fire and earth and stars? 

What things are on your mind?

Goddess of the Week - Anuket

Your life will overflow with blessings.

How appropriate that I pull this card right before it starts raining. It hasn't rained in weeks!

Anuket was the Egyptian goddess associated with the Nile. Her name translates as "the embracer" and she was acknowledged as the giver of water, prosperity, and fertility.

May your week overflow with blessings!

Ophelia Blooms Again

I've decided to resurrect Ophelia Blooming and use it as my personal blog. I'm also blogging at The Sacred Middle, but content is focused on transition, change, receiving clarity, and getting through the meantime. It's a space for you and helping you create a beautiful future by honoring the present moment. Ophelia Blooming is a space for me, but I'm sharing it with you. If you happen to like reading my poetry and stories and personal thoughts, all the better!

So for those of you who once followed Ophelia Blooming I say welcome back, and for new readers I say hello! Would anyone like some hibiscus tea?
