Bubbling in Alchemy

Many thoughts and events are bubbling in me…

The yellow swallowtail butterflies that have been flying through my days for the last several weeks.  I see them almost daily no matter where I am.

The relationship between the universe and me, symbolized by the circle of a mandala – a reminder that I’m always in sacred space.

“..the circle is a powerful symbol for the sacredness of all things….. by drawing a circle around yourself and standing in the middle of it, you realize that you are always at the center of the universe. The circle that surrounds you shows you that you’re always in sacred space.”  Pema Chödrön, The Wisdom of No

Dragons… within and without

“The Woman in Revelation 12.  I acknowledge, yet again, just how scary it is to create, to birth something/anything precious into this world, and to face the dragons (within and without) that threaten to consume and destroy. And I am reminded, yet again, of who I most truly am – even in the midst of my fear: powerful, regal, and magnificent – crowned with the sun, the moon at my feet.”   Ronna Detrick

Sounds – a wonderful variety of bird songs and calls, rumbling and cracking thunder, laughter…

Water that reminds me that it is powerful and to be respected as well as enjoyed.

Laughter that is just as powerful and not to be taken lightly – just light heartedly! 🙂

Those and more are bubbling in me.   Bubbling away to be stirred once in a while, smelled and tasted as they mingle together, added to, and slowly changed by magic of alchemy into something yet to be seen.

What is bubbling in you?  I would love to hear – add a comment to this post, email me, or post on Facebook and let me know.
