They will show you who you really are.

The strength to stand back up after hitting the bottom. The strength to climb up out of the pit. The ability to allow the light from your eyes to return so you can see through the darkness.

It is not a stripping down, it is their way of showing you who you really are.

There is an old Japanese (?) proverb ‘Fall down seven, stand up eight’. No matter which pantheon you follow, the gods will show you your true self.

Autumn Rains ~ Donna N Astill

Finally my friend, you have arrived,

None too soon either I see,

We have been waiting for you,

And afraid you wouldn’t show.

Delighted we are to hear you,

Delighted we are to see you,

Delighted we are to smell you,

Delighted I am to feel you.

It has been awhile my lover,

It has been too long,

I had forgotten so many things,

Things that only you can make me feel.

Are you planning on staying,

Are you planning on leaving,

Will you be gone long,

Or have you decided to settle.

Please don’t come on too strong,

Please don’t be too soft,

Show me your power,

But please don’t stop.

Without you there can be no growth,

Without you there can be no life,

When I am near you I feel strong,

When I am near you I feel safe.

Season after season,

Month after month,

You are the relief in December,

You are the dread in June.

Rain down on us,

Rain down on me,

You showed your face,

And you are the Autumn rains.

The beginning of the darkness,

Before the dark becomes the light,

When the Spring time rains return,

To give life again.

Explain your intentions…

Well it turns out you do need to explain yourself to the universe…

My 2017 words of intention were Disconnect & Expand. Simple enough right? Wrong!

I meant Disconnect from social media not people & I meant Expand my knowledge not my body!

You really do need to explain things so the universe doesn’t twist your words.

This time I wrote a list explaining what my intentions were, in detail.

Please remember there is a difference between resolutions & intentions. Resolutions have an end, Intentions leave room for you to outshine your goals.

I know 2018 will be another rollercoaster year for most but this time you will have more control.

So HAPPY NEW YEAR my Crazies form your one & only, Southern Cross Heathen xxx

I have not forgotten you my crazies

No, I could never forget you.  I have been super busy here since returning from my holiday and I know I promised to post more about my trip, which I will do, but right now I am packing like a mad woman.

I am doing a big purge of unnecessary items and donating clothes that I haven’t worn in 6 months or more.  I am trying to reduce the amount I need to transport so I can reduce my costs.

You see I am moving 2653km south, yes, to where I had my holiday.  I have managed to organise the kids schooling and drive myself insane.  There is always so much to organise when moving such great distances.

Utilities, mail redirection, storage, transport, accomodation, rental properties… and the list goes on.

I have made many changes to my life since returning and have had many changes happen to me.  I have embraced them all and with all the stress and chaos that happens around me it times like this I ALWAYs land on my feet.  Maybe I was a cat in my past life haha
