Back to the basics

This week, we're working again with Isha Lerner's Triple Goddess Tarot.

Rumi said:

"A new moon teaches gradualness and deliberation and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work, like the universe."

I know we're not entering into a new moon, but as we move into the full moon, we become aware that we are the moist and vast ocean of the heavenly Womb.

The tides and waters of the earth respond to our changing reflection.

Allow the magical light of your Moon glow to illumine your path inward to the place where your soul’s thirst is quenched.

Feel, dream, imagine, and open to the spirit of the feminine orb of light that embraces you soul in the luminous sweetness of the night.

At this level of initiation, the committed seeker lifts the veil of the Goddess one more time. Here we engage with feelings and concepts not yet fully formed in the light of day. At this stage, profound wisdom engages both the imagination of the psyche and the genius of the soul.

Moon Goddesses are always protector deities who lovingly watch over all living beings on Earth. They teach us, by example, to extend ourselves well beyond the boundaries of the individual self into the realm of service to the world. The path of the Moon allows each of us to explore the vast region of the collective unconscious and to solve the deep mystery of the soul.

The Moon card invokes the mother archetype in each human being, so tonight I ask these questions:

  1. Are you safe?
  2. Do you help to create a safe environment in which others may thrive?
  3. Are you comfortable in the darkness of your own soul?
  4. Are you protective of those who are especially vulnerable among us?
  5. Do you take good care of yourself?

Fullness of life

I hope you did something special last week to connect with the Fire Grid, and had fun creating your future, the week before.

Whether you created a MindMovie, a Dream Board, Treasure Map or a list, you didn't just take a step in the direction of achieving your dreams, you took a gigantic leap!

So congratulations to all of you who have made the commitment to YOU!

This week we're staying with the theme of abundance and working with the Triple Goddess Tarot.

The Western world is in radical need of balance and harmony, and we must learn to embrace the natural rhythms of perpetual change, birth, death, and rebirth.
Love is the principal ruler of the Fullness of Life Goddess; although She births and manifests through Her womb, She also manifests divine love through Her heart.

At this stage of initiation, life begins to mirror back to us our deepest held beliefs and patterns of relating to the world. The power of the earth and the resource of your own worth are evident as this archetype awakens within your daily life.

The Earth Mother embodies all stages of life as the Triple Goddess: Wise Crone, Bountiful Mother, and Maiden. Known by many names in many cultures, She is Gaia, the feminine earth steward who watches over agriculture and the ecosystem. Your body is Her temple.

Experience Her sensual temple by walking with your bare feet on the earth, smelling the scent of nature’s perfume as you walk amid the flowers, or touching Her skin as you climb a mountain.

Fullness of Life offers an opportunity to ground and centre your attention on the physical realm.

Become ready to receive life’s riches on a daily basis. Re-invite the Fullness of Life into your daily routine by immersing yourself in nature, bathing in fragrant bubbles or under the stars in a clear stream. Remember, the natural world is a mirror of your own divine potential.

What does abundance mean to you?

Healing the earth - July 17, 2007

When I logged on today I had two emails sitting in my in-box demanding my attention.

The first was from our very own Creative Faery, Marie, and the second was from my bother-in-law Yen.

The thing that really drew my attention was, that both emails -- although from completely unrelated sources -- were about the same thing.

When I pulled a card from Isha Lerner's Inner Child Deck, I pulled the Earth Child, so I know we're supposed to do this. I mean, how many times can the Universe boink me over the head in one day?

Here is a summary of the website (taken from a letter to Oprah Winfrey), and this week's task for us to follow:

We are the Light of the Light and we bring you a message of Love and Joy from the Universe, a method to achieve the highest frequency of human vibration. A message so powerful it has the potential to change the world as we know it. We know your heart, dear one, and we offer your guidance and direction a chance to manifest the power of intention on a global scale. This is a distinct opportunity to apply the principals of "The Secret", not for one's own personal desires, but for all of humanity, to create a wondrous world which is your destiny.

You are presently in a position to assist your planet during this time of change and transformation. We bring to your attention a worldwide project that will facilitate the lifting of your personal vibrational field all while lifting the earth's own energy field; catapulting you collectively into a state of healing. Take care of the "I" and the "We" which you seek for these earth changes will follow. When you maintain a pure, joyful expression of gratitude, you allow the Divine Love of the universe to radiate out to all.

You are a carrier of this Divine Love energy, as are all humans. The key is to remember your true creative potential while living in this physical body, then maintain an open heart for this Love to flow through. This powerful thruth will assist you in bringing a wonderful metamophosis to your world; providing peace, prosperity and unlimited future potential for all human beings.

On July 17, 2007 at 11:11 GMT, there will be a cosmic opening which will rain down incredible creative energy upon the earth. We wish to share this event with you and humbly request your assistance in sharing our message with the world. This will take but one hour of your time but will affect the rest of your life. It is easy to participate. Simply discover that which brings you your greatest joy then meditate, pray, sing, love or dance with appreciation and a grateful heart. Embrace the moment and be truely thankful for that experience. This event will act as a catalyst to begin a worldwide healing and then together we will create a global movement toward change.

One hour of your time can heal the earth. Learn how at the website below. Thank you for considering our truth and sharing it with others.

There is a world-clock on this site, so you can check the correct time in your city to meditate.

Tell me ...

Hey goddesses,

Just touching base with those of you who are doing Gayla's e-COREse. Tell me ... how are you going?

I know it can be overwhelming, but I just want to congratulate each and everyone of you for making the commitment to yourself.

Rainbows & stardust,

Creating your future

I'm posting tonight, instead of tomorrow, because I have it on good authority, that I have family descending upon my door-step tomorrow night!

My step-brother Garry and his partner Yen are coming to stay for a couple of days, so undoubtedly the red wine will be flowing and there will be chatting and laughing well into the wee hours ...

This week's journey inward is from the Inner Child deck.

In the Five of Swords, the river raft of the Four of Swords finds a place to dock, and the fishing rod or sword is secured in the sand.

The boy leaves the raft behind and begins to explore a variety of uncovered truths that are awaiting him. He gazes at a starfish, which reveals the potential of his creative mind.

In numerology, the number 5 is connected with freedom, adventure, and unexpected changes on the path of life.

The seals on the shore symbolise the emergence of unseen life forces coming to the boy. His awareness is fresh as he discovers new ideas. Most exciting is the realisation that clarity is brilliantly emerging like the bright sun in the sky behind him.

As you venture from your raft of the past, be aware of the truth and freedom that await you.

Freedom misused can be confusing and chaotic.

Be thoughtful and discriminating as you gather resources and information. Know your boundaries-the lessons of the raft.

Clarify your goals.

The boy is on a slippery rock, and he must move carefully to stay surefooted.

Anticipate illuminating insights from places deep within you. This is a creative and purposeful time. Most importantly, focus your attention and thoughts.

Reflect on your goals and write them down ... to help bring them to reality publish them on your blog, or create a dream-board or mind movie. Remember to stay positive - for example don't say "I will become more positive", put it in the future tense and say "I am a positive person with a great future!".

To help you get started, think about the key areas of your life:

Where you live





Family & friends

e-COREse 21 day challenge

Hey goddesses! A group of us have already signed up for Gayla's e-COREse and we're underway, its not to late too join up.

If you're a little curious, we're in week one. Exercises and affirmations in the first week are focused around getting more aligned with your centre of wisdom. The part of yourself that knows exactly what you want, how to get it and what motivates you above all else. In this core of all wisdom that resides within, you are absolutely sure about your true purpose for living. It just takes some time playing around in there to unleash it!

Oh by the way, just between you, me and Gayla ... life WAS meant to be easy! Gayla is convinced the old saying 'life wasn't meant to be easy" was based on a limited belief that we have to get sucked into every chaotic piece of information coming our way. We don't. We have the power to choose what gets deleted and what gets right of passage in our mental computers. We just need to know a few tools as to how to do that.

The exercises are meant to be built upon. Each day you will add what you've learned the previous day to the exercise you're practicing today.

So let's begin! What do you have to loose? Find out how to enrol in this free course here.

Angelic Wisdom

This week Isha Lerner's Triple Goddess Tarot demanded our attention ...

The Temperance angel stands before us with quiet focus and grace. She reveals the awakened heart of humanity, for at this stage of consciousness we have pierced through yet another veil of illusion.

At this stage of initiation the seeker is beginning to understand the power of fate and purpose, at last able to be fully of the earth while infused with spirit.

Your angels and guardians surround you with loving guidance and protection. Their elixirs of healing energy embrace you and you are at peace knowing how very loved and adored you are by the precious helpers from above and beyond.

Ground the cosmic beauty of angelic wisdom into the roots of your earthly life.

You are invited to explore the essence of life within the realm of birth and death and beyond, for the soul does not confine its adventures to the spiritual plane alone, but involves itself in the great laboratory of experience here on planet Earth. Our task here on Earth is to fully interweave the spiritual dimension with the material; to mix the gold of spirit with the silver of embodied existence.

When the soul is thirsty, it becomes a vessel, ready to be filled and then poured out into new life circumstances.

What do you fill your cup with each day?

Now is the time to explore this esoteric question. Seal the cracks in your own cosmic vessel so that you may soothe your soul and revitalise your life force.
