The Journey From Bruja To Goddess…

Portrait of the Artist – Collage/Photograph by Toni Roberts

When we first begin to awaken, we BrujasWomen of GodGoddesses and Divine Feminine Beings, we realize that this 3-D “reality” is not static…unbending or unyielding to our human will; and that we not only influence what becomes form but can actually “will” or “create” with our minds what becomes form—much to the ego’s delight.

Years are then spent manipulating our reality plus the realities of those who come to us in droves, paying us cold hard cash to manipulate their realities for them and/or teach them how to smooth out the rough spots in their own lives, i.e., lack of money, no lover, horrible lover, terrible job and on and on and on.

Finally, if we are not too ego-maniacal, we tire of creating and recreating the same nonsense over and over again, never finding that deep, soul-satisfying and lasting human scenario that would make living in this third dimension truly meaningful, purposeful and fulfilling. And that is when the ego begins the process of awakening to itself and to the falseness of its self-appointed ruler-ship of our being. Thus, begins the slow and painful death of the ego’s rule and the emergence of the rule of The Divine Feminine (or, what I, affectionately refer to as: La Diosa Adentro) which has lain hidden all of one’s life, in a secret fold of the heart; waiting for just this season of change…this death and rebirth that comes before the Resurrection of Inner Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding: the beginning of one’s Sacred Role of Service to one’s “tribe” and to humanity in general.

Thus, in the sunset years of our lives, we become Brujas AncianasWise WomenTribal EldersGoddesses-in-the-flesh and the real Holy Work and purpose of this journey to the here-now begins to unfold inthrough and as all that we are and do…in these temporary and temporal roles of human beings on planet earth. Aşe.

Raising Kundalini…

Chakra Flowering – Artwork/Photo by Toni Roberts

“Chakra Flowering”–Original artwork by Toni Roberts. This piece is symbolic of the flowering of the Root Chakra and the rising of Kundalini Energy up the spine to the 7th Chakra at the top of the head. There are seven Spiritual Centers (Chakras) or “Wheels of Energy” along the human spine. These centers are aligned with the seven major endocrine/glandular systems in the body. During guided meditation workshop participants rotate the color of each Chakra in a circle as they move slowly up from the Root to the to the seventh Chakra at the top of the head. The benefits of this Chakra Color Meditation are a gradual spiritual awakening–or enlightenment–plus physical wellness–or a Wholeness of Being regardless of the number of years one has spent in the flesh body. And those are only two benefits of the practice of Kundalini meditation–there are many. One of which, as you can see by the accompanying photograph, is the awakening of one’s artistic/creative expression.

The Invisible Substance Of Beingness

of all that one holds as

it is the learning to be

it is the

More Gratitude and Insights…

the miracle of each new day…

I’m at my window altar in a state of gratitude: I have a roof over my head; central air-conditioning; good food in my belly; clean, oxygenated water to drink; supplements, fresh fruit; organic chicken wings thawing out in the kitchen for the meal I’ll prepare when I get hungry again. Does it get any better? Can it get any better in this one moment of peace and fulfillment of my immediate needs?

Perhaps that is precisely what I need to learn by practice: staying in the NOW–in the one and only moment in which I am acutely aware of having all that I need for fullness of contentment and joy. If I move one second–one millimeter “ahead” into a “future,”I then experience deprivationlack...being in need of

flowers growing in the land of imagination…

So…therefore…if my sense of lack…of not having my needs met…is experienced only when I allow my mind/imagination to wander from the PRESENT NOW MOMENT into a “future time“: a non-three-dimensional space-time that only exists in my mind-imagination, then, the very sense of lack or need that I experience is too an illusion…as illusionary as the non-existent future created by my mental projections.

the intersecting worlds of mind-imagination…

at the border…

And so, today I make a conscious choice to discipline my mind-imagination, keeping it focused in the HERE-NOW; for the HERE-NOW  is the only reality of existence. I now choose to maintain a constant “frame of mind” that is focused on inner listening…on the goings-on of the internal world. It takes an almost superhuman effort to resist the fascination…the addiction to what is happening in the external world. It is with great effort that I will remain vigilant, roping in my forever wandering mind-imagination and returning it Home.

I am beginning to get a sense of how the mind-imagination…human consciousness–individually and collectively– creates a whole “universe” outside of where we truly exist…

There’s more to come…I sense it just at the border…
