“…I can o’ersway him; for he loves to hear
That unicorns may be betray’d with trees,
And bears with glasses, elephants with holes,
Lions with toils and men with flatterers;
– William Shakespeare; Julius Caesar

To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”

“Often when an emergency or crisis happens, we forget to take care of ourselves. We are not functioning well, unable to sleep and overwhelmed by what life has dealt us. It is at such times the care of others comes through for us.”

Here’s another light-filled ¤ Gem ¤


Painting, “Dark Phoenix” by Marvel, Inc.

#18* in the “Divine Feminine” series.  In October and November we’ll be featuring quotes about, for and by women.  Inspired by the Awakin.org call with Elle Lunaauthor The Crossroads of Should and Must. See also Aphrodite Emerges on Medium.com and “#the100dayproject” on Instagram. Neither an original nor a contributed painting, this quote and image are among my favorites.  This is also truly great advice, especially for women and men who are naturally gifted, or deeply in touch, with the divine feminine – both History’s greatest healers.

*This was also #7.  Really sorry about the repeat!  We’ve updated Gems 2.54 with a different photo since this was posted as a “last day” message on our Facebook #Light-FilledGems page  We’re moving to a new page on Facebook:  @Under1000skies

We welcome submissions of poetry, prose, art and/or photos.  See our About page for more information.
