It's Epiphany! Audah and Aujah - we aren't the only Adepts of Magic 'round here and so it seems to be a timely and appropriate day to post the first conversation in what I hope will be a series. Here, Tracy Popken and I discuss her design process, how she had a "burning bush" moment in college to uncover what she loved to do, being passionate about growing as a human and the power of a personal uniform. As y'all know, Tracy has been working with me since last June on a personal uniform, a real game-changer in my day to day reality to be sure. We discuss this in detail together for the very first time.
The conversation we had lasts about an hour and dives deep into fashion, fearlessness and wisdom-bombs about plans, patterns and even spreadsheets. Thank you, Tracy - it was super fun to chat and wax philosophic about all of it! Epiphanal and timeless at the same time. Y'all enjoy. May it be so.
I feel compelled to share a meditation that came to me at the ranch over the holidays. I guess it came the day after Christmas and I've been using it every night since then on myself. It sprang forth from reading a stack of books that one of my teachers gave me and was inspired by the ranch vacuum cleaner cord of all things! In my reading I was alerted again to the phenomenon of bringing your energy in at night, having read about this before from a trustworthy source and not just an internet rabbit hole (y'all know how we do sometimes with these kinds of topics). That is, the practice of going through the motions of cutting cords and clearing energy before going to bed as a legit evening ritual. To bring that energy in and keep it close with a soft, loving glow for any passing spirits in the night and for your own restful sleep.
Later I realized the energy of this meditation is lovingly similar to the energy of Mary and Isis - the two goddesses I was actively working with during Christmas week. Isis was holding down the fort at work while Mary was riding around in my journal, having been my sub-woofer goddess for the last several months.
Anyway, it's working for me. Thought I'd share in case it works for you too. Better yet, write and record your own to sleep to.... You are safe. You are loved. Sleep well, little one.
