Hyacinths that Feed the Soul

Women hold a great position of honor in this world. We have traditionally been the primary members of society who have served as the healers, the caregivers, the teachers, the speakers of truth, the sharers of wisdom and the peacemakers.
We do these things with great passion, with love, with unselfishness and, most of all, with concern for the well-being of present and future inhabitants of our world at large. These traits are traditions we havelearned from the matriarchs who have come before us, and will be passed down to the women of the future by us as we serve as their mentors.
However, we cannot get so involved in the giving of ourselves to the needs of others that we forget the importance of taking care of our own selves.We must never forget that a dry well cannot give water; nor can a dry spiritual well give living water to humanity. In not taking time to replenish our own spiritual wells, we could no longer give with generous hearts to those with whom we share our universe.
This  is a place where I offer ideas to consider to keep our spiritual wells brimming in order that we may continue to give with full hearts. Ideas presented here are simply starting points for you to customize to suit your own unique needs. Feel free to modify ideas here to suit the parameters of your own lives.
The only aspect written in stone is that, as women of the world, it is absolutely vital that we replenish our spirits regularly; because our love, our compassion,our wisdom and our connection to the spirit of life must be fed to allow us to continue to give generously to the universe of the future. And that is our legacy.
