Post Eclipse

It just so happened that I had the day off yesterday. I cleaned house, one of my favorite things, went to Whole Foods, another of my favorite things, took a very long walk - another favorite thing - and finished the outline for a course on shamanic healing techniques I might teach this summer. It's always good to organize my thoughts, whether or not it comes to pass. I posted the outline on the Chateau Seven blog.

According to the astrologers whose opinions I value (including my own), this was the perfect way to dance with the eclipse energy. By behaving as I did, I set my intentions going forward to take care of business but also to enjoy myself.

Enjoyment is, for some reason, underrated earlier in life. But from 60 onwards, at least for me, it seems much more crucial.

Today, the first day of the rest of my life, I'll take a shorter walk, then see clients this afternoon. This, too, is exactly the shamanic dance of best intentions. I'm pleased that things worked out this way. They don't always, do they? I feel blessed by this eclipse. I hope the feeling lingers.

I feel blessed by the eclipse too. Yesterday was sort of a turning point day for me, and I too enjoyed myself, especially going out dancing to a friend's band last night. I also did some major intention-setting yesterday.

I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous of those who will benefit from your shamanic healing class.

Love the contrast in the two watery pictures- static reflection in still water, and static pennies in rippled water...don't know why this seemed so significant, but it was. Any suggestions?

Jinksy - thank you! I didn't even notice that they were related. Duh. I am an innocent when it comes to photography. I could riff on it, but I would just be making it up. What do you think?

Susan wish you could come take the course. That would be a blast.

Sounds like a terrific day! I love the shiny streak of pennies. :)

maybe the eclipse is the reason we decided against going into the city yesterday since the rain stopped and the sky cleared in plenty of time for us to go and get done what we had planned. but by then we were over it. the movie was a better idea anyway as the work will get done next week.
