I was a Feather.

Fall Feather (c) Tim Dicke

There are days that I have been this feather. Many days. And there will be days ahead when perhaps I will lapse back into it.

All the outside forces that blew me around defenseless and fragile. My groundedness and ability to withstand the buffeting energies of others’ anger, lousy moods was not so strong.

And this is changing… I’m learning to not be the feather who can only shift by the whims of outside breezes and whims. I’m learning to sink myself into the Earth and put down the powerful roots needed to weather great storms of change.

I’m learning to come into a power within that I never knew that I had that is based on a rich aromatic soil of love and compassion and patience and inner core of steel. I am.

There is a powerful Goddess arising within me and I am loving her.

This is good.
