If you’re on facebook, you know I’ve been entertaining the lovely Persephone and Aphrodite in my kitchen the last few days. I’ve been inspired to recreate some offerings I have not played with in some time. It’s funny how pomegranate plays on the senses of women. Every time I write or post about it, the gals start to mmmmm and ahhhh and ooohhh, almost in a primal way. Like the very mention of this original forbidden fruit taps into something deep within our DNA. A history long since forgotten, retold to fit the needs of these times. But the wild woman stirs. The one who is curious not tempted, adventurous not disobedient, and sensual not sinful.
As our pomegranate begins to blossom and the heat bursts open the abundant fruit of her womb, I am reminded of all there is to be grateful for. The many seed of creativity, passion, and abundance that lives in a woman’s heart.
I am working on a video project that will showcase a free gift offering to all my courageous inspiring Soul Sisters during the Spring Equinox and I’d love to have *YOU* in it. I am looking for snapshots of your amazing self at the TOP of the world. In a moment or a day of courage, strength, joy. They can be alone or with a friend. Black and White or color. Old or new. If you’d like to play along, send to herbmother @ hotmail dot com by Friday March 2nd. The project and offering will be unveiled Monday morning.
As a bonus bit of gratitude, everyone who submits a photo by Friday will be entered to win this lovely trio of goodies. Persephone Powder Goddess Skin Scrub, Aphrodite’s Whisper Loose Herb Incense, Pomegranate Flower Essence Elixir.
Here are a few great ideas from around the web to experience your pomegranates.
