Thank you for your kind and welcoming greeting. I look forward to being here in the circle with you and send you the light of this morning.

Bullies are such great teachers. Part of the lessons we can learn from them is about our own issues with limit-setting and also, ability to just say "no" to those who would plaster their energies, good bad or indifferent, onto us.
Sometimes what a bully says is so shocking, it knocks the wind out of us and the words from our mouths. We need to learn to block that from happening, and to be able to speak immediately, to say something that diffuses, and performs a side-step to avoid yet another "hit".
Your words [I enjoy hearing from you, but do not contact me again] can do that....or words to that effect.

Many thanks for responding. I guess this means I've been accepted by FWII. What led me to this site was that I was looking for the meaning of toad medicine because i have had toads visiting and living in my garden all spring and summer. Frog is one of my totems, so I wanted to see the similarities. That said, FWII's purpose is mine also...I am not a "joiner", so this is very meaningful for me.
Thank you for welcoming me into this circle. I was moved to join when I read Phil Lane's vision about the Eagle in the North and the Condor in the South on my Facebook page. I resonate with earth-centered/sacred ways. I appreciate your post on Sacred Circle. I teach a class to native elders and youth called Circle of Life ~ Mapping One's Story. It's an inspiration from my own spiritual journey. You can see more info and photos at my website: www.communitythreads.net. I'm grateful to know you and welcome more conversation.
Thank you for the welcoming sharing, Velma. It is wonderful to be here, amongst many... and so fitting you would be the first to post on my page, as I do love the name Velma as it was shared by my maternal grandmother, whom I love dearly. Joyous Blessings! ~ Leslie
5 of us from our SiStars of the Moon Sacred Circles are travelling to Oregon for the Benefit for Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim this weekend in Oregon. Grandmother Aggie is truly a blessing to us and often reminds us we are all Water Babies and to take care and bless the water.
Thank you for your kind comments Velma. When I was 11 I visited Canada on holiday and told my parents I planned to live here, we were English. I later grew into the knowing that it was to learn about indigenous people. Are own indigenous peoples in England were long gone. As my awareness grew I came to cherish the elements, earth, air, fire, water and Spirit. I have been blessed with the stewardship of a beautiful home floating on a river and land beside. I have developed it into a place for mostly women to come and remember their relationship to our Mother and to the elements and Spirit. We have Sacred Fire Circles on the Full Moon and the cross quarter festivals, Equinoxes and Solstices. It is truly an honour to do this work.
