Whats Cooking In the Cauldron?

Well here we are again looking in the Cauldron…

The Cauldron represents transformation and change and that is certainly what this week has been about!

The Cauldron was empty at one point as I took the decision to join weightwatchers! Watch this space ….

Change is something most of us struggle with. We get stuck in our niche where it is warm and safe but sometimes it is needed, so change was made and I made a big decision to work on this site solely, time has come to be brave and step into my own personal light and allow myself to shine,

As with all decisions it was scarey but so EMPOWERING and as usual spirit gave me a blessing …

As I asked spirit will all be well a book fell from the shelf ….

But not just any book, my beloved friend Annie who passed to spirit who was my inspiration, my grounding, the “grown up ” in the friendship had sent me a book by John O Donahue before her passing and this was the book that slipped from the shelf ……… as I picked it up here was the what was written on the open page ……..think my question was answered!

For A New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

—John O’Donohue
