It's Wishcasting Wednesday at http://www.jamieridlerstudios.com/. I've been away for a few weeks as my husband and I have started our adventures as full time RVers. Of course a new journey isn't without its flaws, or rather learning experiences uniquely disguised as challenges. We are taking these in stride and working through them.
Today's wishcasting prompt is "What Is Your Winter Wish?"
Oh what a great question for me! For the past number of years, I had been working for a well known spiritual teacher. I was unexpectedly laid off; unexpectedly to me anyway, and it threw me into a loop. So much of this job was who I thought I was. In the nine months since this happened, I've learned that I buried myself and now I'm anxious to bloom again as me. The hard part for me is that this indeed is winter, a time of hibernation or dormancy. I am anxious for my rebirth, but over and over I receive the message of patience. It is still time just to rest and rejuvenate. I am dealing with all of life's fertilizer, doing my best to grab the nutrients and let go of the rest. I'm re-establishing my roots and my groundedness, something that I lost in the previous job. I'm gathering my personal beliefs and finding ways to teach what is true to me, and not just repeat the rhetorical parlance of others.
As you can probabaly intuit, I am still working through some hurt and disilluisionment over the way I perceive I was treated. I'm sure the others involved have their own versions of the situation. My winter wish is to rediscover me, to cut the etheric cords of pain and fear, and allow this time of respite and quiescence to heal and rejuvenate me as I prepare for the next segment of this journey called life.
