With Spring upon us and the sun’s new foray into Taurus, my mind is looking to grounding and communion. What better way to do that than with a celebration of sisters! True connection with my women friends provides me with the nurturing and grounding my restless soul desires. I spent many years regarding more of my male friends as true like-minded companions. It was most often in those alliances that I found people who loved to discuss complex ideas, go on wild adventures, and treat me with respect, loyalty, and affection. They knew the real me and had my back, like a fun yet protective older brother. I noticed much more competition and superficiality among my female peers. It seemed that true sisterhood was a rare treasure among plastic imitations. It was later in life that I was able to find more of those qualities in the women I met. As you know, anything of true value is worth waiting for. With my sisterhood, this is also the case. I am incredibly blessed to now have so many honorable, kind, bright, creative women in my life. Let’s call them the Earth Goddesses. Many of them are blogettes and four of them bestowed this award on me in 2013:
Thanks to the four lovely ladies who have included me in their “hood”, Sue, Julianne, Shree, and Glorialana. I am so lucky to have developed real bonds with these awesome ladies on and off the grid and I can tell you I have yet to know kinder, grander, wiser, or sweeter spirits than these four. And did I mention these chicks are talented,creative healers and artists? If I were you, I would buy their wares, use their services, view their art and photography, hear their music and relish their stories.

10. What is your passion? …. living life fully and authentically with love, wonder, gratitude, and awe. Blogging, astrology, and nature take me there.
So who are these goddesses that dwell on Earth?
Here are my nominees. These are some very cool chicks! I will call them Earth Goddesses. I want to acknowledge all the women in my circle for showing me the true meaning of sisterhood. Next I want to showcase some newer connections I have made here on the blogosphere. They write and create art, espouse on astrology, travel and the inner journey with honesty, skill, and passion. Thank you for being a part of my life. If you are awards-free, do not fret. Please allow me to simply say Namaste publicly. Nothing more is required. However, for those who are led to pass these on to your sisters, do so with love and honor.

Linda, it sounds fantastic. A moment later I published the post about Goddess, than I see yours now!!! The theme is the same, you have inspired me by thought-transference! The connection is obvious and amazing. Thank you, thank you very much, Linda. Love and hug!
Don’t you love when that happens? We are sisters on the yellow brick road towards the Emerald City of our dreams.
Please tell me your reaction to my post on Eastern Europe. Just like this one where you awarded me the sisterhood, my dream of my heritage includes your personal gift of inspiration.
hugs and roses,
Linda, I love it, of course! I am reading your post about Western Europe and I will react tomorrow, OK?
It is late, I have to go singing a lullaby to my daughter :-). Good night and happy and sweet dreams!
that is fine, It is much later where you are. Ease your daughter into her dreamworld and have a peaceful night.
congrats linda lite and dex
but theres a goddess mamma you forgot about hmmm…?
odie on behalf of his sad mom…
this is the thing
just when I thought I knew my fellow blogettes:
I have avoided nominating those who have expressed either directly or indirectly that they do not want awards anymore.
Yet a few that I planned on nominating otherwise have indicated they in fact, do want in.
What is a litebeing to do?? 🙂
It is possible that she will be nominated by someone soon within this cycle or…
I am thinking of making this a regular event, in which case OM would certainly be included. I hope that she would in turn pass it on to more of our divine goddesses..
Sigh, you live and learn, but we females ( myself included) can certainly be unpredictable.
Odie, you are a loyal son and momma loves you sooooooooooo much!
And I love you both and Dex is crazy about both of you and is just squealing with glee ( or indigestion?)
peace and harmony and plenty of catnip,
linda and the dex
Thank you !
You are so kind (deep bow), will write up asap.
you are so welcome and I cannot wait to see what you come up with, yea!
It will be odd, I guarantee, not the normal Q & A
I took a pic to slip in another ? since I inadvertently answered one ? on twitter a couple days ago.
Tonight, I chill though…just loaded new mower etc in the rain. thanks again : )
Heeeey this was all your idea 🙂 Luved being invited to join by Ka Malana @ fiestaestrella!
Even if I don’t do the awards who wouldn’t like being initiated into the Earth goddesses sisterhood on Her day! That was the best Happy Earth Day message I got xox
I would have invited you personally but knew you didn’t like the awards process. Many of my longtime goddesses have grown tired of my nominations 🙂
Maybe I can periodically do more initiations! Hope you are enjoying your trip and your dance with Gaia.
❤ Thank you
you are welcome. Glad I am getting the chance to know you and your lovely blog 🙂
Thank you so much for nominating dreamrly! I have been guest blogging there for several months now and I am delighted you chose to recognize us dreamers! I think we are “awards-free” but I will double check with our founder Kayla. I admire your use of powerful images, you are quite talented at taking us readers on an aesthetic journey. Lots of love and light to you Linda….Amanda
You are so welcome. I am a lifelong dreamer and really am happy I recently found your blog. It is important that we find each other and share our gifts and visions.
