They may look like Wallflowers to others at the party, but these women have important work to do. Mystical people don’t often get a break and are often told by others to not take life so seriously. It’s a tell-tale sign of living a mystical life, actually.
Living the life of a mystic is a life path that everyone will go through at some point, perhaps even in another life. The life of a mystic may seem so difficult on the surface and to others, but when a mystical person is empowered enough to realize their gifts, they can finally grasp their significant role in life and be more happy and fulfilled than they ever dreamed of. Life is so beautiful and so are they. ~ Dear Laurel
Dear Laurel, a wise Mystic, represents a woman who resonates with my soul.
My musings are written through her enlightened eyes.
I search for empowered women through family lineage
and stories of other strong women in our past history that inspire me.
I search for an ancestor who would have perhaps been considered a Suffragette, or some semblance of one,
possible great-great-great-grandmothers who could have been mistaken for Witches, Healers, Magical Women, Mystics.
I search in my Grand Dames heritage home for the ghosts of women who were Artists and Outliers, like I am today.
Women who believe in a World of Magic and the Power of Wonder, Courage and Strength.
I search with hope to find these mystics who were in power of their own destiny
and those who had a will strong enough to stand up against misogyny and patriarchy
as I believe to be, again, of the upmost importance today.
