Last week, one of my best friends gave me this beautiful stone bowl she had bought for me on a trip to Northern California. “I can’t wait to see what you’ll put in it,” she told me.
On Sunday, we were lucky enough to view the solar eclipse with a group of great friends at Sycamore Beach. We had Eclipse Shades from my daughter’s class, and we were sharing them with several people on the beach. The mood was amazingly friendly, with strangers talking to one another as if they were old friends and a general feeling of unity in the air.
As the eclipse was at its peak, almost resembling the “ring of fire” like the stone bowl, with one circle inside of another, I felt something brush against my leg, demanding my attention. I looked down and saw a feather had bumped into my thigh. “Wow,” I said to my friends, “this was obviously meant for me.”
My wise angelical friend, CC confirmed that. “Yes, this is your feather for ceremony. You need to find a stone bowl to put your sage in, and wave it with this feather.” Well, I didn’t need to find the stone bowl, because it was “coincidentally” just given to me a day before.
Sometimes things come easy………….. thank you Universe!
