I Am the New Year

posted by Donna Henes

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.

Listen to Your Self
Today, we see many women in public life, ranging the gamut from Hillary Clinton to Sharon Osborne, who have stepped out of the shadows of their husbands and families to pursue their own ambitions for themselves. Millions of ordinary women face the same challenge in our daily lives, as well. After

Wise Words for Our Self
Several of my recent posts have been about the Self, including “What Exactly is the Self?” in which I wrote, “The Self is the sum of all of our parts, and holistically, it is greater than the sum of all of our parts. The fluid Self transcends time and space, expanding and shape-shifting, chang

Benefits of Age
Aging and changing might be inevitable, but they ain’t easy. They precipitate in us a great uncertainty. The myriad dramatic disturbances of modern middle life — menopause, health concerns, career shifts, the empty nest, divorce and death — create an overwhelming crisis of identity and purpose

Long Live the Queen
The notion that fifty years of age could be considered a “halfway” mark is unprecedented. For most of human existence, life expectancy hovered at around twenty to thirty years, and it was only by 1800 that folks commonly began to live to be forty. American women now enjoy a mean life expectancy

A Time For Me
During the decades of our Maiden and Motherhood, women grow to meet all of our many demanding responsibilities. Like the moon that can’t keep getting fuller and fuller with no retreat, we can take on only so much before exploding like a balloon pumped up with too much air. In the second half of He
