Dearest Divine Spark of Creation,
As the year rounds to an end, it is the perfect time to reflect on your last year.
EVERYTHING in life is not happening to you, it is happening FOR YOU! While we are in the midst of a challenging experience it is difficult to see the silver lining and the saying “hindsight is 20/20” has deep significance.
Can you walk through the challenge asking yourself why is this happening for me?
Last year did not disappoint in the realm of intensity, from a supernatural pilgrimage into the Divine Feminine Mysteries of Southern France to the Emergency Room at Vancouver General Hospital being asked who my next of kin is. This year was full of initiations.
When I look back to my experience of spending 11 days and nights in the hospital fighting for my life, I am filled with many lessons that I will never forget.
AS ABOVE SO BELOW
We cannot go through these initiations without giving back, giving thanks. The Great Spirit gave me my life back, my authenticity, self-love, and personal power. From here all things are possible and ripe for the plucking. As much as I wanted to thank Spirit quietly in my own way, she/he was clear that I needed to bring Wopila to my community.
A Wopila is a giving thanks ceremony, a way of giving back all that has been given to me. I invited everyone who supported me in some way or another and I prepared a feast with salmon (the sacred meat of the Salish coast) as the main dish, then a colorful dessert, and sacred gifts. I gave gifts that meant something to me and each gift came with a story of healing that my friends could take into the fabric of their life.
This IS a RECIPROCITY. This was my duty, to give back for all that has been given to me.
CALL TO ACTION
I invite you in 2024 to keep your energetic plate clean. To offer a thank you for all that you were given in 2023, to give from the heart and teach your community how to live a sacred life. It doesn’t have to be grandiose but it should stretch you a little. It is an act of listening and then delivering…the balance of masculine and feminine in action. As above so below.
Happy 2024 my loves.
