There are those moments in time when what you imagine an event could be and what takes place do not disappoint. Those are special times and are often marked by divinity's essence and blessing.
The Fireside Chat for October waited to appear until the end of the month. The taping was originally scheduled for the evening of October 21 and that morning I rose knowing that there would be a need to reschedule. I reached out to Suzanne offering flexibility and it was readily accepted. Not concerned about moving it to the next week and sending supporting energy to Suzanne, I glanced at the calendar discovering that Mercury would not be going direct until Saturday, October 25, and giggled. The Universe knows the normal computer challenges I still wrestle with in the creation of these chats and once again had interceded on our behalf. I am not one to shy away from Mercury retrogrades and often welcome the opportunity to use that time to review and tweak my growth yet I do honor its placement in our lives and know it can be a trickster.
Arriving at our scheduled time the next week came with a lightness and no rushing in preparing for the chat. The moment proceeded to descend into its slot with a very distinct flavor of beauty. It is really hard to explain in words and yet this particular flavor of beauty is very present within the video.
Working and chatting with Suzanne has always brought both of us many moments of deep Ah-ha's and pivotal shifts for our individual lives. It is a friendship that developed during our shamanic apprenticeship 3 years ago, blossomed on a trip to Ireland, and matured over many a night of giggling and honesty. Reflecting as I write this, I really shouldn't have been surprised that the imagined exchange between us became a reality.
Our discussion reflects the steps we have taken into our crone years. I, being baptized into my crone-hood several years ago and Suzanne just inching her way onto the crone path, both of us represent the higher request - to ignite the light for crones anywhere on their path, mentor those to come, and bring back into the world the beauty of the wisdom of the elders.
Reaching a 'certain age' one should have it all by then, have it all accomplished and as we chatted, .... "hope you have accomplished everything you set out to do...Well WHY??? I still have the magic and majesty of my Crone years now to create something else altogether if I choose to........ and that's a piece I think we are missing overall a piece we have lost."
As women, we should all be cookie bakers and apron wearers but by who's standards? Cookies and aprons are needed in the world as well as the Maxine's. Life hasn't ended just because we are crones.
As long time crones, new crones, or just embarking, what is it we so want to accomplish before we depart? What is it that we can bring to this world that helps mentor all of us, all women, men, & children, past, present and future? To know the magic of the world, to just be in it, is one of the many gifts the crone brings to the world. To understand that we, as crones, come full circle and are back in the energy of the divine child is a much needed quality in this world. What inner child dreams are whispering to you to come full circle and experience?
There is so much depth in this chat! I have so enjoyed listening over and over to the exchange of two women desiring to bring more into the world, bring to all who have experienced a disconnect to the empowerment of our later wisdom years. We don't have the answers but we are willing to ask the questions hoping to ignite the light in the darkness that has laid dormant for women generation after generation of the wisdom that comes from living our lives as fully as we can. We ALL hold a piece for each other.
I hope you enjoy this chat as much as we enjoyed creating it. I am honored to have Suzanne be apart of this much bigger piece that the Universe is driving.
I welcome your comments, thoughts, and dreams. Being a crone is about being you, the divine essence that is here now, asking to be given a voice, a signature that will add upon the light brightening this awesome aspect of life...... the final journey.
And the journey continues ~ The Soul Traveler
