Sacred Stories Series: seasonal psycho-spiritual checkpoints to share our history & remind us to pause.

Today is the feast day of Mary Magdalene, traditionally, this is the time of year that people celebrated everything from redemption and devotion to the Divine Feminine. She’s been ascribed to the archetype of the sacred prostitute and named Apostle to the Apostles.

Whether you are Christian, pagan, agnostic or atheist, if you live in the western world, you live in a society shaped by and saturated in these sacred stories. They are all around us, below the surface of our dreams and woven into our most beloved stories.

N.B. If you have arrived here, because you are feeling scattered and scared that there is so much pain right now, I hear you, I welcome you. I hope you find my site to be a safe place, I invite you to join my Trailblazers’ Facebook Cafe for further solidarity and support. I may not have solutions, but I will share all the knowledge and experience I have with you. In this space we don’t deny the negative but we focus on building awareness, resilience and compassion, for ourselves and for all. 

I am acknowledging the pain, injustice and loss. I am taking steps to be a part of the solution, to take positive action against and prevent such prejudice and injustice (a post on this is on it’s way).

I am also keeping myself fuelled and adding good back into the world, along with my work to take injustice and violence out of it.

On that note, I want to share with you a welsh concept; Cymhortha (from cymhorthu, to help) is something akin to community co-operation.

Grace Quantock image on blue background: how I run two international businesses while living with chronic illness

Running your own business can be a huge challenge. Sometimes it feels like it’s a PhD in patience and confidence, just entering that arena. Running a business while living with chronic illness can seem like it requires a super-power. But many people are turning to entrepreneurship due to their health challenges. It has lots of positives; you can often work from home, set your own hours, take rests in between tasks and make a living doing what you love.

However, adding the pressure of work to a life already struggling with pain and exhaustion can be a powder keg. I have been working while living with chronic illness for several years and in that time I’ve tried the good, bad and ugly in terms of what helps and what doesn’t.

Read the full (vintage) post over at the fabulous Michelle’s site here.

Thanks for featuring me, Michelle!
