Basic Itinerary for the day of

It is a fabulous Tuesday, and on Fabulous Friday (Feb 24th), exciting things happen. This is a reminder and request for prayers, thoughts, love, power, whatever your pleasure, with specific time and location details, in case you like to focus your thoughts.

7:20 am arrive at Cancer World - 600 West 10th Ave, Vancouver (read: pacific time)

7:30 am IV line put in, I believe to my left side (a bit dodgy, since that is where I had nodal dissection almost 5 years ago)

8:20 am carted off to have a mammogram guided fine wire put in (apparently this takes anywhere from 30mins to a hour) to my right breast

10 am local freezing

10:15 am surgery starts (in theory, but who knows about timing)

noon - picked up by Seana and taken home

For the rest of you, just general yummy vibes are great too.

Imagine a Woman
by Patricia Lynn Reilly

Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good she is a woman.
A woman who honors her experiences and tells her stories.
Who refuses to carry the sins of others within her body and life.

Imagine a woman who believes she is good.
A woman who trusts and respects herself.
Who listens to her needs and desires, and meets them with tenderness and grace.

Imagine a woman who has acknowledged the past's influence on the present.
A woman who has walked through her past. Who has healed into the present.

Imagine a woman who authors her own life.
A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf.
Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and to her wisest voice.

Imagine a woman who names her own gods.
A woman who imagines the divine in her image and likeness.
Who designs her own spirituality and allows it to inform her daily life.

Imagine a woman in love with her own body.
A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.
Who celebrates her body and its rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.

Imagine a woman who honors the face of the Goddess in her changing face.
A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and her wisdom.
Who refuses to use precious energy disguising the changes in her body
and life.

Imagine a woman who values the women in her life.
A woman who sits in circles of women.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.

Imagine yourself as this woman.

Since you introduced me to animal medicine, I found this prayer for you to surround you with light and support in these coming days. May all be well for you after Friday!
Love, Joy

A Chant for Inner Strength

I call the light of golden rays
I seek protection thus,
I pray. for heavenly forces at my side
angels, sages, spirit guides or wolves
who walk with cunning skill
Come to my aid!
Come at my will!
Black bird soaring light my path
so I am victim to no one's wrath!
And when my journey knows success,
all those who aid me Goddess bless!

Wow, both of these are so great. Powerful and beautiful.

Dawn, I sure get it, reading this is a bit eerie. I don't have to imagine it, I am that woman.

Joy, thank you for the medicine. Good to be taking in more than just the western medicine in this situation.
