Tears streaming down my face, I had no idea if anything would ever be okay again. I had just heard that my dear friend and neighbor had been shot dead at his workplace.
This devastated me. It seemed that the world had fallen apart around me. This was one of many hurdles that I faced this year.
But the year was about more than grief. It was about new growth. I planted seeds of hope. About a year ago, I started a new book, Goddess Has Your Back. How ironic: I lived through a number of situations in which I needed for Goddess to have my back.
All year I diligently worked on feeding those seeds, watering and tending to them (writing and editing) everyday. Now is Samhain, and I’m grateful to be entering into my own harvest season. And the fruit of my labor this whole year (with my team of editors) is my new book coming out in November 2014 entitled: Goddess Has Your Back: How Wicca Can Help You Raise Your Self-esteem and Make Your Life Magickal.
In my new book I address building yourself up and creating a new, empowered viewpoint about yourself and others. Further I provide empowering rituals for all the seasons and Esbats of the year.
In the next few days, I’ll know more about the actual date of release.
I’m feeling grateful that my work will be available for others, and wish that it helps you grow and have your bountiful harvest in your own life.
Taking Care of Yourself through the Seasons
Throughout my year of ups and downs, there has been one constant. With my coven, I have done a number of rituals and meditations. I suggest that you actually make a plan to do a ritual at least once a month.
Now it’s your turn. What are you tending in “your garden” and what is going to be part of your own harvest?
Be good to yourself.
