It’s hard for me to express the feeling of being in the presence of a Goddess while you are in her land. Everywhere on the Big Island of Hawai’i, you feel the Goddess Pele, she’s in all of the landscape, the language, and the people.
So far, I have letting myself just enjoy being here. I haven’t sent a lot of time over thinking things while I have been here. It’s been good to just relax and enjoy all that Pele has to offer. In thanks for her welcoming us to her island, I left her an offering up at her primordial playground, the active volcano.
I will be leaving the island in just a couple of days. I will miss this island once I do but it’s left me totally reset and ready to take on new things and renew my commitments to others. I have a directly for my Priestess practice and how I plan to offer my services not only to my gods but to my community. More about that to come in the next couple of weeks.
I had hoped to blog more while I was on vacation but I just got so swept up in activities. I saw sea turtles, went surfing, hiked volcanoes, and explored mountains. Tonight, I will go to see the stars. Not a bad way to finish up my holiday in the sun.
