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

for my interview with Karen Tate on Voices of the Sacred Feminine Radio.

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.

Cleaning House
Our messy thinking and sloppy habits come more easily into focus when our surroundings are tidy and beautiful and filled with only what is meaningful, so that we can release them, as well. A thorough house cleaning, internal as well as external, is a fabulous way to delineate the purpose of our l

What’s Important in Life?
–from Joan Chittister: Essential Writings Once upon a time, there was an elder who was respected for his piety and virtue. Whenever anyone asked him how he had become so holy, he always answered, “I know what is in the Qur’an.” So when the old man died, they raced one another to his hu

One For All and All For One Once and For All
Recently I was asked to speak about the shamanic point of view of team building with an emphasis on creating alliances and community. From a shamanic point of view it is redundant to think of reaching out to build teams, alliances and communities, as we are already all connected. There is no us a

Out on a Limb

Letting Go of All that Does Not Serve
On my birthday this year, a friend presented me with a gorgeous amber necklace that she had gotten in Russia twenty years ago before she immigrated to the United States. Though she felt that it did not suit her, she held onto it for two decades for sentimental reasons. When she gave it to me, she ap
