Yesterday I went with my dear friend Ruth to the OLOTEAS gathering. OLOTEAS (Our Lady Of The Earth And Sky) gatherings are always on the 4th Saturday of the month. Since they do not own the property but rent/share with others that is the calendar. So, it’s a bit off on the sabbats but we celebrated Litha none the less.
Dark Matters was heading up the workshop and the ritual. We did a lovely maze walk while charging gold/silver stones with our intention. And then we were to begin our stories.
And I couldn’t stop thinking of this separation with my brother. I hate it. But I know I must do this for myself. I can no longer have people in my life who do not respect me. Love alone simply isn’t enough. You can’t love me AND treat me as though I’m a bug. This is very painful. With every story beginning there is a story ending. So I mourned this loss, which I hope is temporary but know it might be long, as I get ready for the birthday revels to begin.
After the ritual and crying Ruth and I jumped into the warm pool. Well, okay, we both have bad knees, we gingerly walked down the steps. It was a soothing balm. Washed away the tears and drove home under a gorgeous golden sickle of a moon.
Gracious Lady and Lord, bring love and peace and healing to those I love. Bring abundance in all it’s joyous ways and happy means. Bring joy and freedom and wings to me as I move into this new phase of my life. Bring my lover to me. Bring that job that is waiting for me to fill it’s needs.
So Mote It Be.
