Day 16

Half way through the blog along!  Been thinking all day what I wanted to post about.  But I got nuthin’!  That seems to be the running theme, some of us are stumped for topics.  I think I might spend some time tomorrow search Google or Pintrest for some ideas.

The “Women Who Run With The Wolves” read through officially begins today. Our circle was opened yesterday with a lovely ceremony. I learned something new about “shaking off” negative energies and how I can center and ground myself.  Burning incense or sage or using essential oils isn’t always an option.  While I might enjoy the scents, those I live with might not.  Plus with oils I need to be careful  because of the fur babes.  I am considering making a spray or two though if I can find scents that appeal to me.  I was gifted a piece of Black Tourmaline for Yule by my cousin.  I have a piece of Hematite too. I have what I thought was a smaller Hematite only to discover this morning it’s not real.  I wasn’t a happy camper to find that out.   I’m not sure if I have Smokey Quartz, I think I do.  But I can stick with the Tourmaline and Hematite for now. I was just looking at what I had that I could carry along with me.

One thing I noticed is when I tried bringing the Hematite to my charkras, my throat area got a real tight feeling.  Like I swallowed something and it was stuck.  When I moved it away, the feeling lessened, but when I moved it back I felt it more.  I’ve never done anything like that before, it was something I tried on a whim this morning after I read a blog post by a friend on her recent visit to a Shaman who examined her chakras.  I need to do a bit more reading about this sort of thing.  I feel like I have no voice, so the reaction I had with the Hematite at my throat wasn’t a total shock.

I’m slowly reading through the introduction. I have a notebook to jot things I might want to make note of handy.  Still need to get some highlighters, I have a yellow one but they’ve never been my favorite.  And I’m using my Red Aquarelle because it was handy.  I think I might do an initial read of the intro, and then go back and read it again.  Maybe when it’s quiet with less distractions than I have during the day with the household awake.

I’m a bit anxious about reading this book and what it might crack open.  I’m anxious/nervous about what reactions those around me might have should these cracks inspire me to make some changes in myself and my ways.  Small bites and baby steps, deep breaths, inhale – exhale – repeat.  Not going to jump to conclusions on something that might not even happen.

There I go…overthinking and worrying about things too soon.  Maybe it’s time for a mug of tea and settle in to read a few more pages.
