It's good to hear from you opal.  Congrats on the birth.  It's thoughtful of you to touch base with the people here and let them know how you are doing.

Just wanted to apologise to you, I said I was back and then I disappeared after I'd posted a single question really. I had a little boy, and he is wonderful. It's been so complicated and I want to do a quick explanation, but if you don't want to or don't have time to read drop to the last bit.

 For some reason, despite specialists being involved from the off, some doctors got worried about my medication and we  had to fight to keep him with me after the birth. The hospital I had been with were incredibly clinical about it and set in stone that they would put him on a neonatal unit to observe him, even if born really healthy. Our problem was that if healthy he wouldn't need to be in that environment and the hospitals policy was that I would not be caring for him, in fact I'd only be able to hold him when they had enough staff on hand and deemed it ok. I had to move to another hospital in the last week on my pregnancy despite weeks of fighting and being promised that a compromise would be reached.(we didn't realise a change was possible until that last meeting).

He was born wonderfully healthy and it was such a quick birth that, despite my fears surrounding medical intervention, he ended up being born in my parent's house with paramedics present for the last five minutes. They'd never seen a birth before.

I've been struggling to find a good amount of time to join in with and read the posts on this forum, and that may continue (he has kidney problems that are completely unrelated to my Meds). But, I wanted you all to know that I love talking to you, value your advice and will always come back despite it being a bit hit and miss. Whenever I can be active, I will be.

Blessings to you all,

Take whatever time you would use for ritual or worship if you prefer that word outside and enjoy nature. I believe that is a good way to incorporate the two.  Our spirituality is deeply connected to nature. I see no reason why whatever time we spend in nature can't also be spiritual.

Balance is something we all strive for. But we can't often maintain balance perfectly. It is natural for  balance to change. Change
is the only constant we can expect to remain.

Work - Life balance? Can't think of a time I've ever had one of those..... The scales have always been one end or the other.

I know this is old, but the post has resonated deeply with me and so I MUST reply!

pencils - I really, truly, appreciate your post. I was in a similar situation in my childhood - the forests, woods, and outdoors were my "church" so to speak, and I really could not believe nor get into what I was taught at Religion on Monday nights. I often feel much more relaxed when I'm out in the middle of nowhere where I can just link with my surroundings. That being said, I love me a good book on biology, astronomy, ecology - anything science related and I'm completely there.

Back to your OP: I really think it's up to the practitioner on how s/he wants to incorporate the Earth and Heavens into her/his Craft. Personally, I fill whatever space I'm in with living things - be they animals or plants. I also try to make it a point to go to parks and take the paths not taken so that I can get away from people (I live in NYC so it's a rare thing to be away from people). Once I have time again to really practice my Craft and find a work-life balance, I'll tell you more.
