Secrets that Free Us

Dear One, I’ve almost always wanted to talk about things that no one else, at first, wanted to talk about. Finally I stopped caring about being stopped and spoke freely of the things of which I long to speak. When I am lucky you join me and I am so glad. This is true company. Together we choose to think of things… But really now, things that shouldn’t be taboo at all. But for some reason we find it so hard to speak them Intricacies we...

Metamorphosis: A Mythical Quest

  “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”                                                                                      C.G. Jung  What does it mean to live a legendary life? For me it means that I answer the longing to live a more liberated life story. That I set the intention to willingly empty my old stories. To allow myself to sit with the discomfort, unfamiliarity and uncomfortable-ness of the...

Sacred Story

   Sacred Story By Laura Toller Gardner I make this offering to you as my grand finale with Cosmic Cowgirls Magazine. How appropriate that I end three years of contribution with the topic of story, and an exploration of the turning of the wheel of life: beginnings culminating in endings and endings giving way to new beginnings.  From my heart to yours, bright blessings on your storied journey! May your voice ring true, and the stories...
