Hello Dear Ones
July has arrived with stormy weather here in Scotland. June felt a bit heavy with retrogrades and eclipses, so the rainy weather feels refreshing and rejuvenating.
July supports the energy of victory and expanding our personal horizons, think Julius Caesar and his triumphant statement Veni Vidi Vici!
I was reading the July Forecast from the School of Shamanism and Lena says that the main theme for July is “Two Steps Forward, One Step Back”. A Chameleon immediately came to mind and their message is ‘Watch and Wait’, the highway of life has more than just green lights.
So, whilst the energy of the month is vibrant, and we are amped to get going, we may feel like we are being reigned in. Just remember, this is exactly where we need to be right now because with every push forward, there is a need to look back and this may be necessary, for emotional clearing or a completion of a cycle… whatever the reason for looking back, remember this is necessary to ensure that our move forward is truly aligned with what we want.
Whilst out and about celebrating the radiant warmth of summer…. continue working on your goals, your personal growth and you will find yourself a victor!
Warm Summer love!
PS: We are running a Tarot / Oracle Reading Giveaway on Instagram, don’t forget to enter! You stand a chance of winning one of Fionn’s Shamanic Card Readings. The competition closes on Monday, 13 July 2021.
You have been following Fionn’s blog about her journey with Mama Cacao during June. I was on a journey with her as well, but a very different one. Those of you that have sat in ceremony with us will know that I am not a great fan of the taste. I like what it stands for, I like the experience I get from it, but I dislike the taste. It is hard work drinking it. But I tried it, the first week it went well and I thought I can do this. And then life happened and I only occasionally took it. This experience does not mean that the last month has not been transformational, because it has. For a variety of reasons.
We finished the Goddess workshop a little while ago, but during the last month, we did some constellation work using the four archetypes we worked with. It was a powerful experience. There were some surprises for me, but deep down I knew how these four archetypes were out of alignment, who was feeling repressed, who was dominant and who had barged in to try and keep things calm. I had a coaching session at work this week and we talked about this work in relation to my work. I have a lot to work on. So now I am trying to let the mother rest and allowing the wild woman and the maiden a little playtime. The crone is there, but just keeping an eye on proceedings. That is easier said than done. This morning during a meditation I was reminded to look at my heart box and remember what was important to me. Have a look at my witchy tip below for more details on a heart box.
Anyway, I have been expecting change for a long time now and I think it has started.
And my final word: those that have signed up for the magical life workshop are in for a treat. Not only do we have an exciting 5 weeks lined up, but I love the witches starter kit I have put together.
Check out the unboxing of the Magical Life Workshop box here!
Have a lovely July.
With lots of love
June felt epically long! I loved the time expansion, it felt like the world slowed down, allowing for much-needed downtime! As I mentioned last month, I took the month off to recalibrate my inner world and follow my intuition and aim my arrow in the direction of my heart’s desires!
I kicked off June by stepping further onto my path as a Reiki Teacher, which has thus far brought some fascinating ideas on how to weave my passion for archetypes and cacao into my practice.
The day dawned gorgeous and sunny, and I was excited to take my next steps on this path. Throughout the afternoon there were lots of messages from spirit and my guides, affirming I am on track.
First up was a beautiful reflexology session infused with Reiki. It was during reflexology I was guided into a mediation, and I found myself on a yellow brick road… Yup, much like the yellow brick road Dorothy was on in The Wizard of OZ, except I didn’t have red Dorothy shoes, my feet were bare! Also, I didn’t have the Tin Man, Lion or Scare Crow… I had my heart and my Animal Guides… and it felt like I was heading off on an adventure of the heart.
Afterwards, we headed into the garden to embark on Reiki Teacher training, and we discussed my vision for teaching and for my practice. After receiving my attunement another affirmation that I am on an adventure of the heart, came through.
I am super excited about how this is all unfolding!
Simultaneously, I felt called to attune myself more deeply to the Master Plant Medicine Cacao as part of a 21-day challenge. Each day I created a sacred pause to sit in ritual to be fully present with myself and deepen my relationship with Cacao. Cacao helps us to listen and to feel, she encourages us to reflect on our life and where we can open our heart to our calling.
I have loved connecting with her over the last month and diving deep into her history, the challenge has grounded me, slowed me down and brought me back to my heart centre.
If you haven’t read about my journey thus far… check out our blog.
I am thinking about running a 21-day Cacao Challenge later this year, please do let me know if you are interested, it has truly been an expansive journey and I recommend it wholeheartedly!
Last month we closed off our Goddess Workshops with constellation work, recalibrating the Maiden, the Mother, the Wild Woman and Crone within us… It was the perfect way to end off our workshops, giving those who attended amazing insight on which archetypes need more nurturing from us. We have opened registration for the Goddess Archetype Workshops… do let us know if you would like to join!
Sending you all so much love and happy summer vibes 💗
The Owls Witchy Tip
Make a little keepsake box out of any sturdy box. Mine is a beautiful jewellery box that my Goddess necklace came in. In it, I have little things that make my heart sing. Some of it is a little something I have picked up because it is pretty and some of it represents the things I love most in life.
Try making one for yourself, open it when you are down or you doubt yourself and you will be reminded of what makes you happy and those things that should play a bigger part in your life.
The Wolfs Wild Tip
Focus on your Heart.
We are so busy hustling and trying to keep our lives afloat, we waste so much energy getting stuck in our heads trying to figure life out.
Instead, drop into your heart and allow yourself to fully feel what's going on inside of you.
Talk to it, listen to it, thank it, ask it to share its wisdom with you.
Summertime is a good time to heal and let go of any emotional wounds from the past, giving us the space to open up our hearts to what's present for you now and what it's guiding you towards in the future.
