Farmgirl Goddess at Heart

Farmgirl is a condition of the heart… a lovely saying from Mary Jane’s Farm and an idea easily embraced.   I also agree with them when they say that it doesn’t matter WHERE you live but HOW you live.

My mama friend gave me a stack of Mary Jane’s Farm magazines to check out and I’ve been LOVING the inspiration. Really REALLY good stuff.

Good reminders, ideas, heart talk, sisterhood support and oh my, anything that inspires me to draw a goddess again is a very good thing for me indeed. We all appreciate a nudge in the direction of staying connected with ourselves, our earth, our creativity, our community… and, our farmgirl-ness.

In this particular issue, I’ve been drooling over the idea of making homemade sourdough bread. Now that we’ve completely laid-off our gluten-free quest, and are eating wheat again, I really should get back to baking the good stuff. And it sounds like creating your own starter with sourdough is the best way to go because you will be using natural yeasts from the air instead of one manufactured strain.

Oh my oh yes, I need to do this ~ and for the love ~ I really need one of those cast iron pots with a lid!!

Delicious inspiration on every page of that magazine ~ Farmgirl Sisterhood at its best.

And I think about all the farmgirls I’m blessed to know, and the appreciation flows.

*Knowing Your Desires Helps Manifest Them*

(a self-portrait/wish-list type of thing)

I am wanting to just be. I want to release my worries, plans, agendas and even my domestic duties for a bit and just practice being.

Fully accept everything as it is. Be right here right now. Just linger in the now moment enjoying the joy and gratitude in my heart.

Stay present, stay in appreciation and stay in…

*Bliss*

Whatcha Wanting {birthday bliss}

 

*Knowing Your Desires Helps Manifest Them*

(a self-portrait/wish-list type of thing)

 

I am wanting an independently delightful birthday.  Regardless – of – everything.  Which means – it needs to be delightful to me no matter what happens or doesn’t.

Most people, I think, rank their special day according to what others can and will do for them.  Or wait to see if people even remember their special day.  Or maybe there are other birthdayers who get oddly annoyed by people doing things for them because it’s obvious these people feel obligated to perform a certain duty instead of giving from a special place in their heart to this extremely special person on their day of birth.

Guilty.

… of one or more of those.  But not this year!!  No ~ Now that I’m turning 28 for the sixth time, I’m turning over a new stone or leaf or rock (what is it?) – oh hell, I’m turning a new page and am ready to grow up a bit this year.  Yep, I’m going to try to be bigger and not be such a brat.  It’s like this year, I’m ready to make an announcement to everyone that… YOU’RE OFF THE HOOK!!  I’ve taken full responsibility for me and LOVE YOU – regardless.

I am wanting this absence of expectations because then I can be in an open state of allowing to enjoy the day as it unfolds – as it is.  Happiness is not anyone’s job but my own.  Knowing this and applying this to my life, really allows me to just love it all.  No one needs to lift me up because I’m already up there!  And then, when one of my true blue friends reaches out with a birthday wish… it is oh so sweet.

The celebration is at the ready.  The love is all around me.  And I am certain, this sincere appreciation flowing from me is because I’ve already allowed my heart to be in…

*Bliss*

Goddess Birthday Card

If you took the time to sit down and make yourself a birthday card, what would it look like – what sweet things would it say?

With all the yogurt-making & mothering planned for the day, I doubt I’ll have too much self-loving crafty time but thinking about it reminded me of a birthday card made for a special friend last month… a card that took half a day to cut, glue, stitch ‘n embroider… a card, ha ha, that I would totally give myself!

Even if you don’t have time to write poetry, remember to give yourself the gift of choosing nice thoughts about you ~ give yourself compliments & encouraging words and swim in some adoring self-love… today, on your birthday and every day!

I am wanting… me.  I blog a lot about Sadie, umm… myself, but in the offline world, I crave more time with her, umm… me!

Yes ~ Me Time!!

Sounds silly of course because me & my third person personality are always together and I’m obviously self-obsessed enough about nurturing my self-love (as we ALL should be!!) BUT YET – I still want more of me!

And it’s definitely a spiritual thing.  I think it was Deepak who tweeted yesterday, Spirituality is not learning anything new but learning what we already know.

(omg, i love that guy)

And so what is it that’s so important for me to want to know, to learn from, to create from, to remember, to connect with, to stay close to…

Well holy moly, it’s me! 

:: the real me ::

Geez ~ we’ve all heard the ol’ Know Thyself thing, right?  Lately it’s taken top spot on my to-do list and I’m feeling like it is why we are all here in physical… to get to know the greater part of ourselves, the inner energy, the source of it all, our souls, the big ME’s inside of us ALL.

I am wanting this because Knowing that Divine Energy, that Sweet Presence & Calm Awareness & Broader Perspective can only lead to one thing….
