Planting a Grove

Through the trees, the sun shines on me.  The birds are singing and my connection to spirit strengthens.

Some many months ago I spoke of wanting to start a local circle.  I put that on hold as there were many…MANY things that were keeping my plans up in the air.  Those “things” have all disappeared to the wayside.

This morning I reset my altar that is in the living room.  I spend more time in this room than I do in my office so I thought I’d fix the altar to reflect that.  it looks pretty great.  Later I’ll clean off my working table 😉 and set aside a little space for a candle and incense holder and a clot for them to sit on.

With life starting to settle back into a normal routine again I am feeling, once again called to start a local circle.  This is something I have wanted to do for a very long time and well it’s high time I get it started.  I’ve been considering the how’s and why’s for so long that if I don’t get out of my head and into the world it will simply always be a dream.

At the end of my thoughts I’ve decided a hive or sister grove to Sacred Mists is the ideal way for me to proceed with it.  I’ve decided on a grove so that those who wish to enter can learn from one another and grow together in the bonds of friendship and light.  My maiden name translates to “of the Willow”, Willow has always been a favorite of mine and it just makes sense to have “Willow Grove of Sacred Mists” for my group.  Admittedly I do no t know a great many people in the area yet; however, I would like to get this started by Mabon at the latest.

Gatherers would ideally meet at my house in Vallejo as I have plenty of room (inside and out) for a gathering of up to a dozen or more people.  Tools are present and I would welcome any additions.  I am working on the logistics of “Grove Items and restocking” as well as a few other ‘bylaws’ that would be vital to having a local group.

I am looking forward to this next chapter with an amazing amount of peace and joy.
