#Omens&Symbols . . . .circles and cycles

“The circle is used in initiation rites, ceremony and ritual as a boundary for consecrated space. It may be used to mark the territory of the magical or spiritual realm, for healing, meditation, or to protect those within it from negative or threatening outside forces. We’ve also seen the circle described in myth, fairy tales and countless stories. Energetically, circles, cycles, and spirals connect us to the realm of transformation.”

#FridayFantasy . . . .I mistook the way

I was made for another planet altogether. 
I mistook the way.

#Omens&Symbols . . . . kōlam, the visual prayers

The kōlam are all done by women, tens of millions a day, made from rice flour. The kōlam
are visual prayers, and are walked over all day every day, and gone by day’s end.
The woman wakes before dawn the next day and makes this (always different), again.

Each day we receive inspiration…..

” Each day we receive inspiration from the Holy Spirit.
These ideas, notions, and opportunities are life’s way
of moving us along our appointed path. The Holy Spirit
will always guide you to do that which is appointed for you.”
