It’s late; everyone is asleep but me. My thoughts keep bouncing from one subject to the next, but they’re not sticking to any one thing. Tempting to label it a loss of focus, but that’s not how I feel. More of just an over awareness of everything at the moment.
The sound of my husband’s breathing moves softly down the hall, reaching me in the living room. His health has never been the best, and things are getting worse again. He won’t let me give him Reiki as it brings on pain. I try to tell him that it will pass, that sometimes pain is brought on, intensifies, but is then released, rarely returning as strongly. He can’t accept that, he lives in a world of pain, anything that makes it worse, when it is already intolerable, is to be avoided. But, he did at least allow our son to offer him a healing today.
Atticus brought out his crystals and gently laid them on his father’s back, explaining to me why he was placing which one where. I offered a bit of advice, suggesting he focus the crystals where the pain is the most intense. He agreed, rearranged them, and placed his hand on his father’s back.
I know from my own experiences that our son is quite skilled for his age. The energy moves through him purely and with a strength I had honestly not expected. He has figured out how to turn the energy on now, how to channel it, and is able to use it to cast a Circle now. We’ve been going over Circle casting procedure for a while now, both boys know the rhyme by heart, but it has only been recently that Atticus has been able to channel the energy necessary to maintain a Circle.
Titus is more focused on coming up with additional songs for our family. His latest song was a joy to hear and made me truly glad that my husband and I decided to raise our children in our faith. I post his lyrics here with loving affection for my darling three year old:
"All the leaves are falling down,
Winter is coming soon.
Get on the Goddess' train! Choo choo!
We all bounce around!"
