Ostara Preparations

During last night’s meditation on rebirth, I was struck with the theme of last Samhain’s ritual – in order for something to be reborn, you have to let it die. There are things in my life I need to let go of. Some of them are pretty straightforward… some of them are rather scary.

Nobody said this was going to be easy.

Tonight’s meditation is on planting.
