The second journey into the soul with Barbara and the other gorgeous souls I am a part of. The journey this time had a focus based on two magazines which our excited child went to buy. Mine were CondeNaste Traveller and a girlie Fairies magazine which came with pink wings, jewelled tiara and wand. It was deep and revealing and I didn’t journal fully the experience but I wanted to log this blog as an ongoing acknowledgement of it.
I danced and enjoyed the wings, tiara and wand spreading gifts of joy and light around the group. We made collage using the magazines which we were asked to use five words to capture the essence – these were rich, light, fun, dreams, journey.
On Sunday my body ached badly, I felt deep tiredness which became a theme for the next month as I was forced to listen to what my body needs at this time.
