Season Of Death And Rebirth…

Under the Love & Protection of La Virgen Madre – Window Altar Arrangement & Photograph by Toni Roberts

Todayas I sat at my altar…

Deep in meditation

I heard a Voice echoing from within:

IT’S CLEAN OUT TIME

And…although I shuddered at what I knew was to come…

I answered…bravely:

Do with me as YOU will…

For I am finally ready after these many years…

To begin living the life I came “here-now” to live…

 

Then came the realization

Something within inow deaduselessblocking further growth

The time has come to get rid of it’s rotting carcassto provide space

an inner emptiness…in which new life can take rootgrow strong and ultimately blossom into Springtime

I am ready…I whispered…show me the way and the what to be rid of…

How do I make ready the space in which new life can take seed and blossom?

Show me the waymoment by moment…thought by thought...word by worddeed by deedstep by step

As I walk with trepidation…this dark road

Guided solely by Your Faint Light

Show…

Me…

The…

Way

Aṣe!

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

Our Prayers…

for

WHOLENESS

HEALING

and

SELF-UNDERSTANDING

never

go

UNANSWERED

(we cannot, however, have one without the others!)

 

   in fact…

as a

bonus

from the

REALMS OF THE DIVINE…”

we also learn…via answered prayer…that we are the only thing standing in our way

blocking

the

BLESSINGS

that

are

our

natural

   INHERITANCE…

Living With Gratitude…

A Gathering of Spirit Power – Artwork & Photography by Toni Roberts

 

I am finally learning to live truly

in

humble gratitude

100%…

24/7…

in

total

OBEDIENCE

to

WHATEVER-IT-IS

that is proving

ITSELF to be far GREATER…

more

POWERFUL and LOVING

than

i

could ever be…

 

I

am

finally

conscious

or

WOKE…”

as this new generation says…

my

life

has

purpose and meaning

beyond

what shall I eat…where shall I lay my weary head…with what shall I clothe this naked body…how shall I earn my daily bread…this day?

I know that I shall be

clothedshelteredprotectedguided...

and

lovingly cared

for

by

a

POWER

I

cannot

but which takes care of me far better than my human…flesh parents ever did

or

could

 

and for all of

that

and

more

I AM SO VERY GRATEFUL

One of the most difficult lessons for me on this

JOURNEY TO WHOLENESS

is learning to let all

THINGS

EVENTS

and

PEOPLE

who enter my life

BE

WHATEVER

they came into my life

to

  BE

participating observer

in my own life…

exactly like this magnificent

Food for Thought…

 

A Bit of I Ching Wisdom for These Trying Days of Our Lives…

(From Hexagram 33: RETREAT)

“…the behavior of the superior (wo/)man toward a climbing inferior; (s/)he retreats into (her/)his own thoughts as the inferior…comes forward. (S/)he does not hate…for hatred is a form of subjective involvement by which we are bound to the hated object. The superior (wo/)man shows strength in that (s/)he brings the inferior to a standstill by (her) his dignified reserve.

(Note: italics are mine)

The I Ching has become a wise and dependable guide on this lifelong Journey to Wholeness. Those interested in learning (remotely) how to use this ancient Chinese oracle in their own spiritual growth and development may contact Toni Roberts, via “message” on her Facebook Page: https//:www.facebook.com/gaiadaughters

 

May our hearts fill with love and our souls remain peacefully connected with the Divine as we follow that deep and ancient Inner Knowledge that knows from whence we came and why. 

I send Peace and Love out to my troubled world.
