She emerged fearless. She glowed a bright yellow. Her knowledge dropped with expertise, experience, and a confidence that defies most people. She held the entire room for over an hour. All of the sisters were held in captivation. No one could move. No one could speak. Time stood still. Nothing else was more important than watching the Aquarian as she took center stage. Everything else fell by the wayside. It was a small gesture to her. However, as she made suggestions to the artists, the entire room listened and grew from her flowing impromptu presentation.
Through phone calls and text messages during my Saturday, I have learned that everyone felt the same thing: sheer awe. The Aquarian will be doing a workshop for us shortly because of her willingness to share, the beauty that she had while doing it, and her knowledge of her craft is above and beyond the norm.
The focus was on dreams. I presented the use of the amethyst and how one should track the symbology and patterns that appear in the sleeping mind. We made dream books and created suggestions on how such things could be manifested into reality. However, the strong connection that all of us felt to this little woman as she commanded the room with her awesome power was outstanding. We are lucky to have her in our midst….and to think, it was her first time.
She has made an impression on us all.
I have learned that I am to expect the unexpected. Each circle is vastly different with a few themes that remain constant. We enjoy the sisterhood and the opportunity to share with one another because of the growth. We are from different backgrounds and have different lives. We celebrate together because we are women living in the same world. It is my hope that our work will make this realm a better place for the women that are walking behind us. Happy Harvest Moon and charge those crystals.
Somtimes, a girl may have a question about something personal, technical or otherwise. I had a million questions about blogging since it is new to me. My friend, whom I call Tech Chic, has a strong background in computers. I sent her a message and received an informational phone call. Now, she has to write that book that was in the back of her mind to pen. See what just happened? What if I had kept that question to myself? She may have missed the signal to go ahead and pursue this next endeavor.
When you take the appropriate questions to the correct person, the answer has benefits for both parties. The person gets a chance to share and facilitate knowledge and the recipient gets that desired present. The energy exchange is wonderful.
There are so many topics in the world. No one person can know everything; this is why there are specialists. If you want to learn how to clap your posterior, seek the assistance of a professional that understands the rhythm of the cheeks to the beat. Maybe 6/8 time always confused you because it is counted in two. If you ask the lead percussionist, he can break it down for you and give you a new lease on time signatures. Unsure of which color best suits the room? If you ask the art teacher about which shade of purple is best with which light, expect an impromptu lecture that reinforces her own knowledge while giving you the information that you couldn’t find on the internet. I once had a question and didn’t know where to turn. I went to Facebook and friended the administrator of a group and interviewed him. He is now a close personal friend whom I speak to daily:)
Always have your resources at hand even if they are in a foreign country. For the most part, people love to share their knowledge especially when given the chance. So, speak up. Do not be shy. Ask the fitness instructor if she cross trains. Talk to the vegan about why grass is so important. You may even get a new friend out of it. I have…plenty of times:)
