Although we have three days to go
I am already feeling the influence and impact of the Cancer Full Moon:
“I build a house of Light and therein dwell.” (Lucis Trust)
buried and forgotten hurts…
I’ve not been aware of…
now coming to the surface
as I sit here at my
La Diosa Adentro…
heart and soul…
house of light…
the sage advice of the
Hexagram 8…changing into 52…
Unity…holding fast to La Diosa Adentro
following Her instead of my over-ambitious Ego…
Spending these beautiful summer days
appreciating the beauty of my surroundings
honoring the abundance of the natural world…
When we first begin to awaken, we Brujas…Women of God…Goddesses 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 Ancianas…Wise Women…Tribal Elders…Goddesses-in-the-flesh and the real Holy Work and purpose of this journey to the here-now begins to unfold in…through and as all that we are and do…in these temporary and temporal roles of human beings on planet earth. Aşe.
” Woman At Crossroads” –There are those times in all of our lives when we come to a Crossroad…do I go left or right? This job or that one? Chemo or no chemo? Live or die?
You would think that after 79 years of living this human drama, a woman would be spared life’s complexities and dilemmas. That one’s sunset years could be spent in play; drumming, dancing on the summer grass, experiencing only the joys of life…loving…simply being…
That’s not the way of this journey in the Third Dimension. And I am finally learning to embrace Life’s challenges; to welcome each Crossroad, regardless of how challenging a choice I must make as I continue on this twisting, winding journey of unexpected events, people and circumstances.
These days, when I reach that inevitable Fork In The Road, I find my Spirit Companions right there waiting for me. Mother Goddess, my Guardian Angel, my Orisha, Elegua…and Love ItSelf. Right there in the Silence of my heart…waiting for me to ask: Which Path is my path to Fulfillment of Purpose in being in this Here-Now? All it takes is the asking. The acknowledgement that I DO NOT KNOW. And in that surrender to a Wisdom higher than my human Ego, I am led; step by step, day by day, breath by breath into a new and expanded experience of being human on planet earth.
Let us never forget that the Ancestors are always here to guide us. We need only to stop pretending that we have the answers…and ASK. Ashe.
Sitting at my Healing Altar in my Sacred Space is a daily ritual. Were it not for the time spent each day sitting in the Silence surrounded by my Companions-in-Spirit, I would surely be a mad woman. As it is, this daily ritual anchors me to the Divine within; and sets the Tone and Energy of my day. And each day, one step at a time, I move slowly towards total and complete At-One-Ment with That Which Causes All There Is Into Being. I am learning that life is a process and that “God” is who I am.
I am learning to surrender
desires of the flesh
HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS…THE GREAT MYSTERY…THE COSMIC SOUP…GOD…ALLAH…THE FATHER…THE GREAT MOTHER…THE COSMIC WOMB…THE FORCE…KRISHNA…JESUS…A HIGHER POWER…THE MOTHER/FATHER…THE GODDESS…
