My relationship with the Earth and with nature’s cycles has deepened over several years. The paths of permaculture, Ayurveda, earth-based spirituality and Steiner-Waldorf guide me around the turn of each day. week, month, year and of my own life. It feel important to me to acknowledge these phases and transitions; to notice and celebrate through simple acts of thanksgiving, connection and ceremony. Acts that are sometimes solitary, sometimes with my son and/or husband and occasionally with a wider group. This is what I mostly write about on Spin Your Circle Bright; the celebrations and small rituals, projects and reflections that deepen further my relationship with nature – and with myself as part of it. These acts that root me in the beautiful rhythm that I spin to. The inspiration I find that brightens the path ahead.
The words are from the chant “Lady, spin your circle bright. Weave your web of love and light. Earth, air, fire and water bind us as one”. It’s one of my favourites. The words remind me of our glowing sun and full moon – as well my ideal that our planet could “glow” with the collective happiness, hope and vitality of its people if we made it a fairer, kinder place. It reminds me of how, although individuals, we are all part of the same; all equal. For want of a less clichéd expression, we’re all connected. Many see our lives as a cycle; here the words speak to me of us creating happier, more fulfilled lives for ourselves – and of helping others to do similar.
If something you see here happens to inspire your own ceremonies and celebrations, I’d love to hear about it. Any content or photos you’d like to use professionally, let’s chat about it over email first: email@example.com.
