We Are Our Own “Oracles…”

In Contemplation of GoddessHood – Artwork & Photograph by Toni Roberts

 

When first the Goddess-Self begins to awaken …

We sense a quickening of the Soul at the HEART and SOLAR PLEXUS...

We then run to the corner Witch or Spiritual Advisor

So that she may consult her Oracles

On our behalf…

 

Never for a moment do we stop to realize…

That we, too, have access to the same…

GodsGoddessesOracles and Holy Beings…”

As does the neighborhood Consejera

 

Instead, how about trying something different the very next time you are confronted with an insurmountable challenge…one way beyond your human ability to comprehendmuch less solve?

How about trying this?

First…

Turn off all gadgets…

All media…

All means of communication…

Let there be no distractions from total attention…

And concentration…

On your own mind…

And body…

 

Next…

Sit your busy ass down…

Shut your mouth…

And think about the situation that has you in such a panic…

YES…actually think about it…Instead of trying to escape it…

 

*DO NOT take any substance

That is unnatural to the human body

In order tocalm your nerves…”

Orrelax your mind…”

 

Now…

BREATHE

Simply breathe

As you watch yourself breathing

 

FEEL the Breath-of-Life moving into your nostrils

Expanding your belly (not your chest)…

Filling your lungs…

Distributing Life-Giving Oxygen

To every nook and cranny of your being…

Breathe LIFE

In…and out…

In and out…

Nothing exists but you…

Breathing…

Life Itself

 

Watch your thoughts as they pass through your mind…

As you would watch traffic on a highway

They are not you…these thoughts

They are simply thoughts…moving through your mind

Do not engage with them emotionally

Instead…watch them running through your mind…

Like little drunken monkeys

The same thoughts…running mindlessly…

Back and forth …back and forth…

Across the highway of your mind

 

Just breathe

 

 

If you have gotten this far…Awakening One

You are well on your way to contacting La Diosa AdentroYour Inner Goddess-Self

Your very own private…Personal Oracle

She Who Dwells at the center of your being

 

Your next steps will soon follow…

 

In the meantime…Goddess-in-training

Keep on breathingBreath by Holy Breath

As you continue to move…through this Mystery of human Life on planet earth…

Step by stepbreath by breath

(Lao Tzu, in the sixth century B.C. elaborates upon the meditative mood as follows:)

“(S/he) who knows does not speak.

(S/he) who speaks does not know.

Close the mouth.

Shut the door of desire.

Blunt the sharpness.

Untie the tangles.

Soften the light.

Become one with the dusty world.”

(Italics mine.)

When I stay present

In this now moment of

Time

   And listen inwardly…

   The “Curtains of Heaven” part…

And I catch a momentary glimpse of

   Reality
