this

glorious

today

with

noisy splatters of raindrops

and

boisterous winds

intruding upon the

SILENCE

of  my

   SACRED SPACE

blow!

Oya

clear away the debris that clogs the mind and soul

whip up the waters!

cleanse this vessel!

ready it for the

Holy Work

   for which the Soul has come

We Are But Bit Players…

in a

   major drama…

one far greater than that

unfolding

in

the

empty

space

between

our

two

   ears…

This Is What Is Most Difficult…

IT IS THE

SITTING…BREATHING…WAITING…LISTENING…

while impatience and guilt about the

dirty kitchen floor

dirty laundry piling up

and

   this prolonged absence from…

   and longing to return to…

   the kick-ass world of making shit happen…

PLAGUE

   me…

stealing my attention from the

SILENCE

can be heard

and the

LESSONS

of

the

DAY

   BEGUN...

   Gemini Moon…

in the fullness of

Your Light

the hidden self

   is revealed…

and as the dark self wanes before

   Your Brilliance…

the

Goddess Self

   expands…

illuminating the world

with the

    Healing Light

of

   Your Love…

Breathing In With The Waxing, Crescent Moon…

May 9, 2016…14% Waxing, Crescent Moon; Stock Photograph

   I must remember…

this is the time of the

  in-breath…

of filling up with

   Light…

   of taking in…

   strengthening…

   building up…

   restoring…

 a time of  regeneration… 

the time of the

out-breath

shall return with the

fullness of Mother Moon

It will then be my time return to the world

   empowered…

ready to

   build…create

slay dragons…

but for now…I focus on the

   in-breath…taking in…

resisting the temptation of trying

to carry my dreams from

imagination to physical form

by

dint

of

human power

   alone…

yes…

the time for action will come

   but for now…

the

    in-breath

A Return To The Mother…

Photo by Toni Roberts

Photo by Toni Roberts

Enough
No more of this
Left-brain living
This masculine way of being

I return to the Heart
To the Mother
To Earth
To That Which Brings Forth New Life

Photo by Toni Roberts

Photo by Toni Roberts

I am WoMan
Here to manifest
The Goddess on Earth

Too long have I mimicked
The way of man
Dis-serving my Wholeness by abandoning
This Yin way of being

Photo by Toni Roberts

The Times now demand
A reawakening of the
Divine Feminine
A redirecting of the
Course of humanity

It is time for us to embrace
Love
Peace
Unity

It is time for us to know that we are one
The same Being
Individualized into
Myriad Points of Light

It is time for us to use our words
Instead of fists of rage

It is time we give up our need to be right
Even when we know we are

It is a time for giving thanks
For the fruit upon our plates

Time to tap into the innate wisdom we possess
To plant in fertile soil
The seeds therein
Nurturing those seedlings
As they magically transform into
Next year’s harvest

Thus we become
Self-sufficient
Self-sustaining
Self-providing
At-peace
At-one
As we revel in the bountiful generosity of
The Mother

Retreat…Day 5…”As Above So Below”

My cup runneth over…

Too much to be contained…

As I let

Lady C

  Guide me…

Taking me to places

She would have me see

I walk with increasing confidence

This path of

No Signs

As Above so Below

She reminds me of

This fundamental Rule of Being

You are all “chosen ones

Pre-programmed to

Awaken–NOW– from the dream

In order to serve

Our Common Purpose

Open…patient…modest…resilient

You become the

Passageway from

Heaven

to

Earth…

As Above so Below

A Goddess among mortals! How a woman can feel wearing this multi-stone, triple strand beauty! This is the third in a series of unique necklaces I am handcrafting and offering to women of like-spirit!

This piece features: lavender quartz for third-eye stimulation and personality integration; carnelian to stimulate analytical capabilities and precision and amethyst for a clear aura, stability, strength and peace; in addition to a plethora of vintage beads and stones.

Another heirloom piece to be worn by generations of powerful women.

A Call To All Djembefolas…DrummerWomen!

8 26 2012 027

Djembefola! DrummerWoman!

Dust off your drum

new altar 9 4 2013 025

Return the Goddess to your altar…

Isis…Mary…Yemaya…

Let our dream of peace, love, health, unity, wholeness..

echo in the beat of the drum

Let our drums reverberate throughout the Land

awakening all of the Mother’s children

from their deep slumber

Let our drums drown out the war cries

soothing the fears of a wounded and frightened humanity

Let the cry of the drum be heard

in far-flung corners of the multiverse

Grandfather blessing my drum...

Grandfather blessing my drum…

Dust off your drum my sister!

Let us Join with our brother-drummers

Let us heal together…
