The Queen of My Self

I Am the New Year

Dear Sister Queens,

I am back! I took a leave of absence to deal with the immediate and then the long-term effects of Hurricane Sandy. I am glad to say that all is well with me now. And I am pleased that I was able to do my small part in the relief effort. I now return to my normal life. And, of course, this being the first work day of the New Year is an appropriate time to get back on track.

These words are very apropos today. I hope they resonate with you and inspire you to do a review of last year and an intentional look forward to 2013.

 

I Am the New Year

I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.

I am your next chance at the art of living.

I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the last twelve months.

All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search it but with more determination.

All the good that you tried for and didn’t achieve is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.

All that you dreamed but didn’t dare to do, all that you hoped but did not will, all the faith that you claimed but did not have – these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of a strong purpose.

-Anonymous

I extend best blessings to you all for a year that is fruitful, fulfilling and fortunate in every way.

xxQueen Mama Donna Henes

Tired of all the doomsday talk?

Urban Shaman and Priestess Queen Mama Donna Henes will discuss the Global Ascendance  and how the New
Era we are entering is the re-empowerment of the Feminine Divine.  Also, the role of women as activists, how protest is good for you,  and refocusing our energy on health creativity, and spirituality.

De Sancta Maria
Hail to you, O greenest, most fertile branch! You budded forth amidst breezes and winds in search of the knowledge of all that is holy. When the time was ripe your own branch brought forth blossoms. Hail greetings to you! The heat of the sun exudes sweat from you like the balsam’s perfume.

Nature, Our Mother
In the beginning, there was woman. And she was versatile. She breathed, she stretched, she strode, she sat, she foraged, she trapped, she planted, she cooked, she ate, she bled, she danced, she laughed, she slept, she dreamed, she played, she prayed. She made art, she made ceremonies, she made love,

Spring Cleaning
Happy Spring! In winter, we spend inordinate amounts of time inside, dwelling, stewing, stagnating in enforced inactivity. When our hibernating energy finally re-awakens in the spring, it is with a pronounced case of morning breath. After the dust, the must, the rust of winter, a thorough spring

Friends for Life
I love working and playing in groups of women. I was never in a college sorority, so my first experience was in the feminist consciousness-raising group that I joined in the late 1960s. And what an eye-opening, empowering experience it was. We were a very diverse group brought together by our Boh
