Queen Loran hat im Januar im Goddess Circle ein wöchentliches Projekt ins Leben gerufen, bei dem sie an jedem Sonntag ein bestimmtes Thema auswählt und uns Fragen dazu stellt. Wir posten ein aktuelles Selbstporträt und schreiben unsere Gedanken zu ihren Fragen nieder. Ich habe beschlossen, einen Teil meiner Antworten aus dem o. g. Forum jetzt auch hier zu archivieren. Das ganze ist natürlich in Englisch, weil die Sprache im Circle Englisch ist.
What are you learning from the Circle? What do you need to learn?
Oh dear, a huge heap of things! I can't think of everything in the moment. I learned to love myself, to stand up for myself. I learned to take care of myself, especially of my energy level. I learned how beautiful I am. I learned that I have spiritual beliefs and what these beliefs could be called in my case. I learned that I am creative and a writer (journal, blogs) and that I'm doing alright, business-wise. That I am enough. I learned to feel joy in (almost) every moment. I learned to relax and take time. I learned to be positive. I learned to formulate my dreams and to pursue them. I learned that wanting to earn money is good :) And to define my own value. And much much more :) I love you all!
What does sanctuary mean to you? How do you take time to retreat from the world, or do you?
My room, especially my bed and sofa. At home, when I close the door to my room (I share an appartment with two young men) I can be myself and have all the time I need. And I need much. And that's ok. Another sanctuary for me is the Elbe river. I have a special little sandy spot there I keep calling "my beach".
The weather is too nice. Although it's already 6:30 pm I have to go out to my beach and will deliver the photo later :)
Do you love the full moon? Or is there another element from the universe you are more drawn to?
I love the moon in all her phases, but I also love the life-giving sun and all the stars and planets (I truly believe in Astrology) and the Earth (walking barefoot) and the water - being by the water is sooo soothing to me. And grass and stones and trees and mountains ... everything :) Loran, you could be true: I could really be a Pantheist :)
What kind of magic do you want in your world?
Auto~magic Internet is great :) I come across magic in my everyday life more and more often. My life just is magic :) *off to the beach, see you later, girls*
Here's the photo I promised. Hello :) More photos of my beautiful mini-retreat in my newest blog post. How lucky I am to live here!! (Moved here 3 years ago yesterday).
