I can so relate to Sistar Feather's Twisting path. My own has felt so twisty these past 10 to 20 moons! Not just twisty but with oxbow detours that take me into swamps and briars, or even sweet pretty distractions, before they rejoin the clearly lit path I seemed to veer off of.
I said to another diva recently these way paths are times for learning or cleansing, when the clear medicine path seems blocked or scary. It isn't of course, but that what I am thinking at the time. Those twisty oxbows might also be resting places, stumps to sit on by the side of the road to gather energy and clarity.
Maybe I needed to take all those bumpy, tangled, thorny paths these past 20 moons.
Next time I am tempted to follow one of those trails, I want my catcher to grab me. Don't let me do that again. Holler at me and grab me by the collar or the hair and say: Diva, you been down that road before. You learned that lesson, you don't need to do that again. I'll trust my priestess, my Diva Sistars, and my own womb and the sacred circle of the Ancient Mothers to keep my feet on the lit path. It may not be a super highway and it may even be rocky and hard to see. But it's lit, it's true, and it has my people on it. The people who are waiting for me to show up and tell them it's time to be living their truth, their medicine, and reclaiming their True Power.
