Jamie our fearless leader and wonder woman has asked us today.... What door do you wish to open?
I love Wednesdays and look forward to the chance to stop and contemplate something for more than two minutes at a time. I get up early to do this..no kiddo distractions. I tend to look for themes in my life and on the blogs every week. Things that jump out at me, touch me demand my attention. This week it was all about paying attention to being present and taking care of my own spirit.
I love my yoga. I am deeply fond of warrior pose. It feels powerful to me. I feel very at home in that pose. I am also very fond of a blade...a Japanese katana to be more accurate. Beautifully crafted and balanced for my hands. Why do these things attract me so..I do not really know! I suspect it may be figurative to some extent...my warrior side of me demanding her time. That side of me that is ready to step up. My Warrior Goddess side is ready to be heard..she is banging on the door. She is demanding that I take better care of myself spiritually, emotionally and physically.
So...as I cut back on my teaching and start more seriously with my artwork this fall..I wish to open the door to my Warrior Goddess. That I may relish in my glories and slice through my problems. That I may be present in my life and feel that warrior strength once more. That I may be present in my life and more aware of my own needs. That is my wish today!!
