Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Goddess wisdom part 3
My doubt: There are others much more versed in Goddess and Wicca than me.
Goddess: You. You. You. Are the one to do this work. Let go of what it is and what you think it needs to be. You will need to do mini-retreats to do this work. Don't shut down. Let this energy live and breathe inside you. Don't be afraid of losing people. If you do, it wasn't meant to be.
Even if things don't make sense, listen.
Me: This is the energy that entered me in Ireland in the magic forest.
Goddess: Singing is part of this journey. Not dancing. Sing from your heart. The notes don't matter. Who you are when you are singing does matter.
Watch out for jealousy from others of your energy. Only allow those who have your highest good at heart into your inner circle.
Me: Is this my Muse? Damned if I know. I'm done with this exercise.
See, I told you - kicking and screaming the entire six years. And this was only month two or three.
To be continued...
WISHING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY!
