Upon entering, each woman walked on gold satin laced with shiny coins and was showered with fresh rose petals by Sweet Light Donna Scheifler. As she walked along the path she was met by Peaceful Warrior Elaine McMaster, who placed a bindi on her third eye to stimulate her intuition and serotonin factory.
We cast our circle under cotton candy clouds in honor of the Goddess Lakshmi. In loving kindness, we celebrated Nancy Petty. Returning our energy, she gifted each of us with a heart-shaped rock that she found at the beach.
As night fell we retreated into the cozy candle-lit round room. There our circle became two, one nestled inside the other. To attract the blessings of Lakshmi by way of brilliance, we shined our spirits with the spoken word. Each woman looked across the circle to find her circle sister mirror. Then with talking stick in hand, one by one we spoke of our own brilliance and the light we see in each other. Being acknowledged for our brilliant gifts and speaking of them in a circle of receptive women ignited our sense of richness.
To keep this flame glowing we wrote a letter to our selves and one to a randomly chosen circle sister. The letters were collected and will be mailed on the next new moon.
The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi is the bridge between earthly wealth and divine abundance. She is attracted to brilliant souls and blesses them with abundant prosperity. We Moon Mothers recognize the many forms of abundance and open ourselves to receiving.
Thank you Chris Ridgeway for creating the most enchanting home, and for opening it to our circle. Your kind generosity is deeply appreciated. May you be abundantly blessed by Lakshmi.
