A lovely thing it is, this season. It holds so much magic and I finally know what it really is for me. It is the darkness that gives space for deep listening, the flickering of lights all around, that hold the promise for new light to grow stronger and new amazing things to unfold.
Here I stand at the end of the year, at the end of a decade, at a point in my life where I understand so much that has happened to me in the past 10 years. The decade has been truly transformational. It provided all the lifetime events to aid in finding my way to my true self. Of course there is still a whole life ahead, to find ever more, but I feel that the past 10 years have given me the opportunity to learn how to feel my way around who I am. What it feels like to be truly me...what signs I get from my heart and soul, when I am not being authentic and which ones I get when I am...glimpses into the eternal bliss that manifests itself when I am deeply connected to my inner most authentic being, untouched by mental and emotional constructs. I am confident that I have been equipped with knowledge and tools that can guide me through the rest of this adventure of life. I can now continue the journey, fully consciously connecting to ancient wisdom in order to uncover new gifts to give back to this world. What this will be, I don't know and it doesn't matter. The conscious journey is what I am grateful for and that I look forward to.
The most transformational event of the past decade has been becoming a mother. Motherhood is what changed everything. Not only on the outside and practical elements of life, but even more so on the inside. Inside of me, everything changed. My most rooted female intuition was awakened and brought to the surface, becoming the guardian of my heart and spirit and my guiding star to my deepest, truest self. Everything happened from there. Perhaps this could have happened without my children, but they most definitely sped up the process and forced it all to come to the surface. For this I am eternally grateful. I am still young and full of hope for a full life ahead, in complete tune with what it feels like to be ME.
There are some things I know now, that I want from my life. I want to work for myself. I want to keep creating beautiful jewellery with my hands, drawing inspiration from my inner workings and processes I am living. I want to add meaning to my work. My jewellery business is one of the slow fashion movement. I want to create but I want to live in tune with our natural world. I want to reconnect as a female human, to the world I truly belong to...low waste and with preserving this beautiful planet in mind. I also want to promote for myself, and whoever else I can touch, the nourishment of a "good and just" humanity. Love for all people and indeed all living things need to be at the forefront of everything I do. I'd like to contribute to this mission in any way I possibly can. If I can live and succeed in those things, there is really not much more I can ask for.
To new beginnings! Peace, Love and Light to all!
