The Night Before Solstice (Crone Denial NO More!)

The Night Before Solstice by Kathy Crabbe Crazee Janice dancing as fast as she can by Kathy Crabbe (Creative Soul Deck)

I got sick for a day, probably because I burnt out on marketing, so I'm throwing it all out the window for Solstice...letting go...ahhhh. As I sit in my hot tub and feel the weight lifting I relax fully and completely into Goddess; into me.  Funny thing is, when I do this two great ideas come to me.

  1. I need to focus on ME and that's okay; in my art and my writing.
  2. There isn't much out there for the CRONE online. It's Millennial dominated (and Gen X) and I am the bridge.

I was born in 1965 so I am the very first of my generation (Gen X) to turn fifty. I understand the computer and am comfortable there and I can share all I do with other CRONES.

Strangely enough,  I was at a store yesterday (bargain shopping, of course) with my buddy; a fellow artist and crone, and the checkout lady asked if I wanted the Senior Discount. "What?!" I said..."NO! I'm not a senior yet". My friend, Terri Stiles Alkayali who is, inquired what qualified one as a senior and then gladly took the 20% discount. Later, she laughed, saying I was in CRONE DENIAL. I love that term. Did she make it up? Anyway, here's to the CRONE and yes, I celebrate CRONE-DOM with my beautiful grey hair. I'm fifty and proud of it. ***Blessed Be***

Amanda's Soul Portrait & Reading Testimonial

Wow. I have been letting this settle in, and now have a good window of time to write back. I loved the reading. It really hit home for me...was very profound.

The healing stones you picked for me were SO spot on. I have been looking more into them and each one really speaks to me as a place where I could use some support. I am definitely going to seek them out.

I thought the phone format was great, and it was nice to be able to have the interactivity of it and to connect with you in that way. I think I like it better than the written ones...though it's hard to choose.

More About Amanda's Soul Portrait

It is lovely!! I love it. I was so happy to receive it. I love how the "lady" has leaf feet which flow into the branch...she has a beautiful organic feel with those double spirals and leaf designs on her dress...very elfish...I love the green/plant connection. She is sort of ethereal, with a whimsical air, yet grounded too.

I also like the fiery waves around the heart chakra area. Those are definitely "my colors (the Fall/earthy ones, esp the red on her dress). It is all quite intriguing and mysterious. :)

Again, a thousand thank-yous for this gift you have given me. I cherish it.

All in all, the readings I've had with you have been beautiful, life-affirming glimpses into myself, and I feel, the nature of have an amazing gift and I'm so grateful to be on the receiving end of them. I feel buoyed up and held by this guidance you offer and channel.

Thanks so much again Kathy, this has been a great gift and really fun too.
