So, I’m in the middle of week 1 in Leonie Dawson’s lovely Goddess Haven eCourse(affiliate link), and I thought it would be nice to share with you how it goes!
This week has been all about preparations and dreaming up my lovely Goddess home. I just moved here, so I’m still fairly happy about the way things are – albeit a bit chaotic underneath the surface. But at the same time, this is the first time I’ve lived alone (except for my daughter) in 8 years. This could really, really be my very own Goddess Haven, and I’m grabbing the opportunity with both hands!
I wish I could discover that underneath this seemingly endless everydayness of everybody’s mind, there would be a vast, juicy wildness just waiting to be set free and spring into the world like magic firework in a dark night sky.
That there would be someone authentic and real and fiery underneath that grey skin and those dark rings under their eyes.
This winter and this stress and this total lack of diet intelligence has taken a toll on my skin. Potato chips and coke really don’t do much for your complexion! And it’s bad enough that I have psoriasis already, but the skin on my calves are looking like eroded earth and I think I’m gonna make a cloud of dust if someone breathes on me.
So the day before yesterday I went into the Chaos That Is My Bathroom Drawer (keep in mind, I just managed to throw everything out of sight after I moved here, to study for my finals instead) and pulled out a body lotion I haven’t used. I quickly remembered why – it was a Christmas present from someone who really don’t know me that well, it really didn’t smell good, and it left a film on my skin instead of penetrating it.
