sylvan_being: (spring)
I absolutely love the theme of this month's update.

Now is the time the earth awakens after its long, cold sleep. Now is the time that the seeds begin to awaken, stretching and straining to break free of the earth and reaching for the sun. It makes sense, then, that now is a fertile time to plant seeds within ourselves, too. Connected to the rhythm of the land, when you plant ideas for awakening, they can grow, nurtured by the blossoming spring all around us.

What is that you wish to grow in the coming year? This update for The Fable Tribe is filled with the Awakening Seeds Glamourkins. Each Glamourkin pendant is a seed that when worn with intention, will help you invoke one of five qualities: Creativity, Abundance, Enchantment, Daring and Self-Love.

When I read the qualities that were being portrayed I knew exactly what I wanted. <3 Daring, for sure, and maybe an Abundance one.

For about 6 months now I've let Persephone take hold of my life. I've been in a transitional phase in my life. Graduating college and having to go out and make something of it has been the scariest experience of my life and has yet to be rewarding. I've tried not to dwell on this whole experience, I've been trying to just live in the moment and see how it all plays out. And I think I've been going about this all the wrong way.

I am not a Persephone girl. I don't think I ever will be. But I thought She was trying to teach me something and went about listening in the worst way possible. I haven't been active in this process. As a result, I've been waring with myself.

I can't give up Persephone, I know the lesson She's trying to teach me is an important one. But I don't think I can do it alone. I need Athena. I need direction and purpose and a goal. I can't sit in the Underworld forever. I've spent my 6 months here, and the entire Winter hating myself. And that's not what this place is for. With Spring I need to rise out of this hole, reknewed. This won't be my last time here but I hope my future visits will be better spent. I had such high hopes for my time spent with Persephone but I can't dwell on what could've been. I need to focus on what is now. And to do that I'm planting my Awakening Seeds in the form of Daring and Abundance with Athena's help.

Awaken Daring
When I saw this Glamourkin in the sneak peek, I just knew that it was the one for me. I've been filled with indecision and self-doubt since I graduated. I don't know where my life is going right now but I need to stop taking the back seat. I just need to choose and become.

Awaken Daring
I was ok if I was only drawn to the previous Glamourkin, at least I knew I had found my little piece of courage. But when the preview went up and I saw this beauty I knew I couldn't pass it up. I've been drawn to the symbol of the phoenix for years now, they're such a powerful symbol of rebirth to me. Opening up a new chapter in my life is like being reborn, I have to reinvent parts of myself that have been worn into my bones and I'm sure that wings of phoenix feathers will help me rise to the occasion and above it.

Awaken Abundance
I wasn't sure if I was going to find an Abundance glamourkin that I liked, but when I came across this one I knew I had found the one for me. We are all boundless, shining beings and I hope that I can permeat every aspect of my life with that trueness. The only thing stopping my life from being abundant is me, and I'm going to stop denying myself.

So it feels like it's been forever since the last time I made a post, and there is so much to write about. So I'm going to make a bunch of posts.

The update in December was Goddess themed and I went a bit crazy over it. I always have my eyes peeled for Goddess Glamourkins, so I felt like I'd won the Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

I'll admit, Persephone was rarely an aspect that ever crossed my mind, but now She is in my every thought. So when I saw this I knew I had to have it. It's what Persephone symbolizes most in my life right now. With graduating with my B.A. I've felt as if I'm refiguring out my life, descending into the Underworld, to be reborn with Persephone's help.

This beauty represents Psyche, an aspect that has been with me for some time, and has become an integral part of my spirituality. She's actually a facate of a greater whole that helps me seek the Divine specifically.

I was so excited to finally get a Hestia pendant! I can only remember one before it and I was sad I didn't get it but I was elated to be able to nab this one. I've talked before about the connection I feel to Her and I'm glad She's resurfaced in my life.

I don't think I can properly describe just how excited I was to see this Lilith Glamourkin. I knew that if I could only get one, it would be this one. Lilith was one of the first aspects of the Divine to shape me, coming only after Ganesha. She is beautiful in all ways to me. She showed me that even within one of the most dominating patriarchies that women had the potential to have a voice, because the first woman did. She taught me that it was ok for me to resist overbearing Christianity and that I not only had a voice but that it was a birthright. She also helped me to see that being by myself was not only ok but perfectly acceptable. She's not only shaped my spirituality but me as a person, and I will be eternally grateful for that.

Artemis has been with me before I even knew She was, which is why I want to keep Her with me always and never forget Her.

OMGODS I'm so excited about this one. I first read Her myth and learned about Her through Thalia Took's art. She captivated me and I became enthralled by Her. She will always hold great meaning to me.

I took the opportunity this update to get an invocation that I've been wanting and has been pulling at my heart lately.

I absolutely adore this little invocation! <3 Not too long ago I discovered how Persephone is working in my life. Ever since then I've been trying to work with Her energy and keep Her as a constant reminder. So I figured having a physical reminder that I see daily would help me to be conscious of Her presence and Her lessons when I need them. This week has been a reminder of just how much I need Her in my life right now, so I'm so happy that I have this beautiful piece on my Samhain altar. I also got this piece for my Samhain altar. I thought that it was appropriate, since I connect Persephone to transition and Samhain is a reminder of past loved ones (a transitional phase).

I've been wanting an autumn themed glamourkin for some time now, so when these two presented themselves in the last update, I knew that I just had to have them.  Plus, them both being about Persephone, at a time when I'm trying to work with Her energy, I knew it was meant to be. <3 


There was one item that I wanted but just missed out on. I've been wanting a Felt Flower since they first came out in Antheia's Garden, but haven't seen any that I really liked.  There was one in this update that I thought was so beautiful, everything about it: the colors, the beads, even its name. <3 But maybe next time around I'll be able to find one.
