happy birthday to wftw!

Today marks the one year anniversary of Word From the Well!

At some point fairly early in, I made an informal commitment to myself to post something here every day, even if it was just a “Rest Day” photo, for one full year.  I’m happy to report that this actually happened!  I reached my goal.  I’m not sure if I’ll keep up the daily posting in the coming year, although as of this moment I certainly intend to keep posting as often as possible.

I am immensely grateful to all of my followers and regular readers.  A year ago, when I began, I truly had no idea if anyone would have any interest at all in my channeled writing.  I figured I’d put it out there — more for me, than anyone else.  It’s been surprising and gratifying to see the blog’s group of followers steadily grow, and know from your comments and responses that this work is meaningful.

I’d like to make it clear that I, the channeler, am definitely not the voice that speaks in these posts.  The reason I channel is because desperately need to hear this stuff.  I’m as lost and confused as anyone in my own day-to-day life.  I often need to check the blog just to remind myself of the messages!

That said, there is no question that this work is having a profound impact on me.  Aside from the channeling, this past year has seen me incorporate an almost-daily yoga and meditation practice into my life, which has helped me to find much more stability and peace.  Doing this work, something starts to sink in, after a while.

Very few people I know are aware of this side of my life.  Most of my friends and family would think I was fairly bonkers for doing it.  There are some notable exceptions, primarily my husband, who couldn’t be more supportive, and often believes in it more than I do.  There’s many a time I’ll fall into neurotic thinking, and he’ll remind me of something that was posted in the blog that day, or even stick the laptop in front of my face to show me.  We have funny arguments.

I’m so grateful to my husband, and to those friends who do know about this work and have supported it from the beginning.  Likewise, I’m thankful to all those of you I don’t know personally, but with whom I feel an amazing connection via this blog.

I’m excited about the year to come, and the entering of a new time signified by this solstice.  I look forward to continuing the journey with all of you.

Thank you!  Happy Holidays, and New Year!
