Throughout the course of our lives, we all find either the want or the need to take a moment to ourselves. A moment to think, to count our blessings or take a moment in reflection or remembrance!
Whether you are part of a Druid Order, Seed Group, a like-minded collective, are of a Shamanic leaning or you are a free spirit that interprets their own path!
We all have the freedom within us to believe in our own personal Beliefs and it is our connection with a common thread of celebration and understanding that leads us to gather and give thanks in Ceremony!
Some prefer to gather and celebrate the Ceremonial Year in great company with the timeless bond of close friendship, while others like to feel their connection on a more personal level, in truth we all start in the most personal way as we find our feet, some feel the pull of a connection toward others of a similar understanding and some don’t!
It is important that we are true to ourselves and our path, we all have our own sense of connection with the Earth and the cycle of life, with the will of the elements, the influence of the planets and the wonder of Mother Nature and the flora and fauna all around us!
As we follow the personal thread of our path, we discover our own special, favourite and important times and places that give us strength and help us find a connection and a sense of peace, we find our own personal connection with the spirits of influence and inspiration, of nature and its lust for life that draws us and our attentions!
In time we come to recognise that these times and places are an important source of energy that provide us, either collectively or individually, with the gift of a positive passion that lights up our very being in our everyday lives and helps in banishing negative thoughts and it lifts our hearts!
We all mark these personal moments in different ways, a brief connection, a passing thought, taking in or creating a vision, weaving a thread of words upon a page, or building or sculpting in some shape or form and celebrating in our own way, taking in the breath of inspiration and the inspiration of creativity!
We should all find the time to give thanks and count our blessings, to share a personal thread and celebrate however it makes you feel, whenever and wherever you please!
If you are new or returning to this way of thinking and you are still finding your feet and the outline of your path, you may be unsure if you are ready to approach other like-minded people, whether it be friends, other individuals or an unknown collective?
You may well have questions, however big or small, or would benefit from either a guiding hand or a sympathetic ear, without having to commit yourself to anything before you are ready, if this is the case, we would like to think that we can hopefully help you work in some way toward finding the answers you seek without any immediate or unwanted commitment to our Grove!
Hopefully, we are here to help you find your own path and your own personal thread!
Please address any questions, queries or concerns you might have on the subject, by email to [email protected] or fill in one of our comment slips and we will be in touch in due course and do our best to help in an understanding and friendly manner!
