Familiar

This week, once again I've missed meditating two days already.  It was nice to get back to it this morning, with my Goddess chant.  I also drew a card from the Oracle of the Shapeshifters (Blue Angel, 2012).

Ha, 'The Black Cat: Lost magick, atonement, rebalance': spot on!  I feel I've lost my meditation mojo.  What to do about it, though?  I see in the Black Cat a witch's familiar, and the advice to draw on the energy and support of those who walk this path with me.

I haven't had as much time as usual to read fellow spiritual bloggers, between my son's operation and a work deadline still hanging over me.  And yet, I need to make time for that sense of spiritual connection and support. 

On the upside, this weekend I'm meeting up with my former coven mates, so I hope that will help recharge my spiritual batteries.  We've performed a lot of rituals together over the years, meditated together often, and I feel it will be a wonderful chance to reconnect with them, myself, and spirit :)

  1. Perhaps it is a good idea to take sometime off; a meditation break. After A while you will long for the meditation moments instead of making it something on your todo list :)
    Have a good time with your friends. you deserve it

    1. I think I already do long for the meditation moments. I's more about when things get hectic and stressful, or when I'm very tired, it gets dropped off my schedule. I feel I should prioritise it more, but it's hard with so many other demands on my time...

  2. I agree with Ellen--just think of it as a useful fallow period. I hope you have a wonderful time and I'll see you back here sometime later! I'm off blogging until September starts anyway.

    XOXOXO

    1. I know it's useful, and that the more stressed I am the more important it is. Still, can't quite get from there to actually doing it when I'm really tired and with lots of demands on my time :(

      Hope your hiatus helps, MM, and that you slide into September feeling good!

  3. Skipping two days is hardly losing your mojo. Plus, anytime you breathe in and look around, anytime you are having a moment of awareness, that's also meditation, right? So I bet you got in lots of meditation in those two days. x

    Have fun over the weekend and come back recharged. Hugs!

    1. Well, it was three days in the week... And I'm not sure I remembered to look around much, either, I was so exhausted. The weekend didn't totally cure that, as I stayed up late chatting the first night. Still, it was definitely a start, and recharged my joy in life :)

      Hope you had a great weekend, too, Eowyn!
