Mistletoe graced our central table for our last Red Thread Mothers Circle of 2009. Revered for its magical and medicinal uses, its primary symbolism is for love, protection and fertility.
It is with this in mind that I asked for Mistletoe's blessings today ~ blessings of Love and protection on all the things that really matter as we wend our way through another festive season. Upon our children, our family and our family of friends, our relationship with ourselves and with the Earth, the Mother of us all.
2009 has been a busy year of manifesting and creating for the Red Thread. The group of women who have so far heard and responded to the call are co-creating a colourful and loving circle in their support and commitment.
We made dream pillows for Autumn Equinox, had a guest Homoeopath visit to talk, been given foot massages and Reiki treatments, held a singing, sound and movement circle together and eaten a shared lunch to close the year. But most of all we have spent time just to 'be' as we are, ourselves and our children, and it has been peaceful, relaxing and a joy.
My wish, on the turning of the great wheel of the year, is that as the sun returns to warm the land, our circle will grow. May its roots grow strongly down, deep down and its branches reach skywards, calling ever more gentle mamas to weave their threads with ours. I hope that 2010 will be a year of expanding, strengthening and sustaining The Red Thread, and that we all continue to find what we need within its safe space.
Blessed Be x
