And so it did, I was sitting in my living room ignoring TV and feeling like crap after my partner left yelling at me because who he wanted to yell at wasn't there and he needed someone to yell at. My heart felt heavy and tears were flowing freely down my cheek because I've been so frustrated with all the nonsense the last week, and the top of my shirt was soaked. When suddenly I heard a strong low female voice say "Be strong small one, I am here and we will get through this together you and I." I suddenly felt like I was being enveloped in a large hug (like the ones your mom gives you when the world knocks you down. "I, Freya, will keep you safe, little one, no more will he harm you."
Now I know I was tired and sad and I've been reading a lot of Norse mythology in the last few days, but it was just the right thing at just the right time. She told me to grab my 7 league boots, which is what I call my Flying Ointment and to put it on, finish my movie and then grab the little fleece blanket and head to bed. She came to me and we crossed the Hedge together, and then she introduced me to my spirit guide, a humming bird. I don't know much about this, but I'm willing to learn. I suspect that I have communed with Freya in a small aspect. We talked about what my options and opportunities are. I feel better, not so sad. I know others may think I'm nuts, but then so was Noah and he built an ark.
I truly never thought I would hear the voice so clearly, and I was getting so old I thought I had been passed over, never to be more than a mere dabbler. My ears are open now, and she talks to me sometimes, reminding me to be strong and with a little message of what I can do to keep my cool. My partner has been on the warpath so much, that even the bed is a battleground. I keep the blanket with me always and feel safe, like when I was a little girl using my blanket as a flying carpet to get away from the evil Vizier.
I am worn out from trying to work things out in my relationship with my partner, yes, he supports me, but my consequences keep me from having any kind of quality of life. I have removed the rose coloured glasses and decided to save myself. It will take a little time, but at least this time it's on my terms.
