The ‘Wild Bee Wisdom‘ from Fiona MacLeod and David Wagoner spiraled up again to the surface in a conversation this morning with a fellow Via Transformativa sister.
I have deep appreciation for just how timeless this wisdom and inspiration is, so wanted to share that again in this freshly updated piece from the Sophia’s Children treasure-vaults.
If you’re of ‘this little clan’, as Fiona MacLeod wrote, you’ll recognize yourself in this.
Most of us have experienced it at some point: “There’s no going back.”

With transformation, there is no ‘back there’ to return to, because ‘back there’ is rubble. Probably smoking rubble. Well-burnt toast.

I invite you to join me in a Blessing Sadhana, or Blesstival … sharing blessings into the collective via blog, website, Facebook … wherever you connect.
It also offers the possibility of rippling out the energy and spirit of blessing from within us, to the field immediately around us, and beyond, then, into the wider shared energy and psychic field.
Want to help create the Blessing Wave — and sow plus reap the ‘good medicine’ of Blessing?
Here are the Blesstival details:
