There are so many people who are upset about this horrible tragedy unfolding every moment of everyday for 50 days on the gulf coast of the US. But not enough people.
Have you cut your hair to send to the oil clean up? Well my whole family is taking that on as something we can do. Especially this Olde Bagg. My hair is too long anyway. Human hair is supposed to be an excellent natural "collector" of oil.
Are you praying, meditating, send out postive energy to those that are cleaning up what has already come ashore? For those that are trying to find the answer. For that someone out there with the right idea to get this mess stopped? Are you giving the situation a second thought except when you see it on the news at night? It may not seem like it but the act of sending positive energy to those endeavors is very powerful.
Please stop for a moment and realize that we are all impacted by this catastrophe. Sorry, I don't mean to sound preachy but come on, we can orbit the planet, we can tame the atom, so then why are we still messing around and letting this oil spew and destroy and not stop it? I know, lack of planning always constitutes an emergency on someone's part. This is an emergency of global proportion. (No really Linda? We haven't been under a rock).
Our air we breathe, the formation of clouds that are moisture for our crops, the crop of food we harvest from the ocean, the list goes on and on. And the connection with the water that so many people are missing out on is huge. We should all realize that the draw we all feel towards the water is because we are all a part of the water and the water is a part of us. Whether it is drinking, watering our gardens, boating, fishing, swimming, playing of whatever bent....we come back to our source. The water.
As a pagan, I observe moon rituals. I'm not asking you to do anything except join me and others on the New Moon June 12th by taking a bowl or basin of water or get to a stream, lake, river or the ocean if you are that lucky, lay your hand in the water and pray, meditate, intention, cast or just think on the healing of the water. The power of woman in sympathetic action is a power we can use towards good. Does not make any difference what our religious, political, or other differing persuasions are, we are woman. We can do anything together.
Please lovelies, join me and my family this coming Saturday in putting your hand in water for healing and a cure for this terrible wound to our beautiful earth.
