Hi Everyone… 🙋♀️😎
We have been on our annual winter get away since the end of January and will be heading back home the beginning of March… Hubby likes to go south at this time of the year for a few reasons… He absolutely hates the winter, not so much because of the snow, cold and blowing wind, but also because of the salt that covers our roads, which then gets on our cars, ruins our sidewalks and roadways and of course our environment and water ways… 😦
He also likes to “drag” me away to celebrate a couple of anniversaries for us… We met in the month of February (38 years ago now) and we got married in January 5 years later… we didn’t have a traditional wedding, we “eloped” so to speak, so I never had the frills that go along with a wedding, (no dress, no flowers etc)… we couldn’t afford it and for years after wards I regretted it so much… not any more (I have got over it) 🙂 but Hubby still feels bad and so likes to add that into the reasons why we need to be somewhere warm and sunny… hahaha… (men, the boy in them never leaves… ) 😉 …
However, while we are away, working on SGC is a bit more challenging, and so I take this opportunity to apologize for my late postings… 😦 I also would like to say a big THANK YOU to you all for your continued support in following us and a warm welcome to all of you who are our new followers… We appreciate you all and hope you will continue along with our journey… Don’t forget to contact us with your questions and comments… 🙂 we love to hear from you … and if time permits check out our other site, (you can find the link on SGC to the right of the page) where you can find items to purchase… 🙂
Thanks again everyone… and we wish you all a truly fabulous day… 🙂

The Power of the Circle by Madisyn Taylor
Visiting Sacred Sites
The Spirit of a Place
Visiting a sacred site can be a useful tool to open something within you that has remained inaccessible.
From time immemorial, the hands of men and women have built sites guided by both the earth’s life force and benevolent beings of light. It is because of this guidance that the sites we deem sacred have long served as repositories of wisdom, energy, and illumination that can be accessed by all. The needs that inspire seekers to converge upon sites known to be sacred vary by individual. Some crave spiritual fulfillment above all else, while others hope to draw upon a site’s energy for the purpose of enlightenment, healing, or deep meditation, awareness and knowledge of information long gone.
Sacred sites can appear insignificant to those who close themselves off from the notion of a living earth. But sites can provide us with a link to a unified consciousness that involves the living and the dead, infinite cultures, the physical plane, and the spiritual world. When we look beyond well-known sites like Stonehenge, we discover energetically active sites such as the Iron Age fogou caves of Cornwall, England, or the pyramids of Meroe in the Sudan. Similarly, it is easy to imagine that hallowed places exist only in remote or exotic locales. Yet many of the most richly vital sites are easily accessible, and visiting these lesser-known sites can be a profoundly moving experience. One such site, Serpent Mound in Ohio, was thought to be created by the ancient Adena peoples nearly 1,000 years ago to align with the summer and winter solstices. Its precise purpose remains unclear, but many who visit the site conclude that it was meant to be a conduit through which cosmic en! ergy could flow into the earth.
The sacred sites that call to you from afar—capturing your imagination and resonating deep within your soul—will nearly always be those that can help you forge a deeper connection with the divine energy that sustains all life. During your pilgrimage, reaffirm your intention to accept whatever gifts are conveyed to you through the sites you visit. Your receptiveness will help you establish lasting relationships with these sites so that you can draw upon their peace and their power from wherever you are.
