Looking back on my post for the new moon this month, I actually made a lot more progress than I realized! My planners for 2019 are set up (I actually have three of them), and though I haven't mapped out exactly when I'll be working on each writing project, I'm ready to roll with the … Continue reading Cold Moon Goals Progress
The new moon this month has come and gone, and I've been busily working toward many goals. One of them, ironically, was to start blogging on each new moon about my focus for that month. Oops! Better late than never 🙂 Many cultures believe that each full moon carries with it an energy. As the … Continue reading Cold Moon Goals
It's the first day of Winter and we're heading into the longest night of the year. We get a full moon tomorrow (the "Long Night's Moon"), to boot! I celebrate the darkness on this day as well as the return of the light. When I talk to the little ones in my life about darkness, … Continue reading Joyous Solstice!
However you mark the turning of the wheel of the year, I hope you're all enjoying a bit of down time, lovely food, and nourishing company. Holiday season can mean full schedules and empty energy wells. Around the holidays, it's even more important to me to minimize time with people and activities that draw from … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
There is so much information available to us today. Facts and opinions, trends and data sets, paths and experiences laid out by others that are so tempting to follow. It's easy to become overwhelmed or even lost. Both in writing and RL, I've been digging my way deeper and deeper into rabbit holes of information … Continue reading When you become lost
In my meditation recently, a new mantra spontaneously unfolded. It was beautiful and powerful and I think it can help other people, so I'm sharing it here. I'm focusing quite a bit on health and healing right now in my life. I thought about my progress, and immediately followed with "I am so grateful." Then … Continue reading “I am so grateful.”
I found this blog post that I wrote months ago in my drafts. I thought about moving past it without sharing, but I have a feeling it may resonate with some. If it helps even one person, it's worth putting out there. From May of 2018... I jokingly talk about "Cassland" as the imaginary place … Continue reading I am not mainstream.
We have reached the point of the year in the Northern hemisphere when the sun is at its most powerful and the night is at its shortest. The days will begin to shrink now, even as the heat kicks in. It will still be a time of great activity and outward growth for me, as … Continue reading Joyous Summer Solstice!
Today is a new moon, so what better time to renew my blogging practice! This month's new moon is leading into the full moon that is sometimes called the Strong Sun moon. I'm going to use this time to focus on things I want to strengthen and grow as the moon waxes full. My writing, … Continue reading Strong Sun New Moon
I love the tradition of picking a word for each year. A word to focus on, plan around, and maintain during mindfulness practice. 2018 is going to be big. I can already feel it, because this year, my psyche isn't happy with just one word. It wants three. Home The first word that came to … Continue reading Three Words
