Celebrating the Journey
Recently my cat Rocky passed over.
Although he was 16, it was something I had not given thought to.
So, it came as a shock.
My sadness overwhelmed me.
In my sadness, I prepared his altar.
His picture placed upon it.
Herbs, waters, a saucer of milk.
At night, sitting before it, I cried...
I cried some more.
I asked My Lady to guide me.
I asked Her to show me how to ease my grief.
I did not want to feel this sadness.
Sitting before the altar
The message came to me -
My sadness was for myself.
For My loss.
Grief is about "Us".
It is a selfish although necessary emotion.
Those that have passed over, have moved on.
That is their journey.
As a psychic, I Know this
As a daughter of the Goddess, I know this
Yet in my grief,
I did not see it
We will always be saddened by the loss of a loved one.
But we must learn from the ancient ones.
The Wise ones knew.
May we honor our departed and celebrate their journey
