Pure Potentiality

On this potent Blood-Blue-Super-Full-Moon, we Moon Mothers celebrated the pure potentiality of this new year.  Through ancient ritual, remembering splendid moments from the past, creating and sharing, we magnetized ourselves to universal abundance.

Below are a couple of poems created on this night of practical magic.

Holding up flowers in devotion to the tree, to the Goddess, to all Life
This is my season of dreaming, of renewal, restoration
Singing in the temple, so familiar
Tress nature cathedral – sacred is sacred
How can I keep from singing?
I long to return to the holy places where I once served
Thank you for the beauty of nature, the beauty I look for and always see.
May I travel unencumbered.
May I sing your praises everyday.

Equal World

It is an Equal World.
I open to my best as I rest
In the grass of Heart’s Green Desire
I allow the goddess
Receive the gift
The hummingbird sings
My Voice has wings
Words are like nectar as I write
True calling is heard both day and night
Accept the Mother Mary
Vessel of Pure Potential
World spins
I surrender
Nurture Self
Wise owl calls

As you navigate this new year, may you create what ever you feel called to create and celebrate the simple moments.

Please bring your journal or writing tablet, pen and highlighter.

In January and March of 1999, we had a situation which only takes place about four times a century: two Blue Moons occurring in the same year. The last time this happened was in January and April of 1961 and it is happening again this year. 2018 is going to be a very auspicious year.

Spirit~Quest

Soul, finds bliss in the security and comfort of home, and peace in the quiet of solitude and rest.  Spirit, seeks adventure, new experiences, creativity, and human connection. On this day we soothed our soul in the comfort and beauty of Shelldance’s greenhouse. We called upon our Spirit to show her desires.  By combing through hundreds of images and keeping the ones that sparked our spirit, we created our Spirit~Quest collage. Some of the images I placed on my collage held obvious meaning and some felt powerful, but were vague in meaning.  I trust the meanings will become clear as I follow my path of seeking, creating and enjoying beauty.

Part of deliberate manifesting is to have a witness to your dreams and desires. Collectively we held the energy, as each woman shared her Spirit~Quest.  Then we sent the energy out into the universe through our hands by way of applause.

“In out of the way places of the heart

Where your thoughts never think to wander

This beginning has been quietly forming

Waiting until you were ready to emerge.”

                                                                                                  ~John O’Donohue

May you experience the adventure your spirit seeks and manifest a beautiful new year.

Sincerely,

Mystical Tail

I was born in murky water.  My little tail propelled me through my liquid world. I just moved with the flow of the current. I knew of no other world and was a happy pollywog in my little pond.  Jagged quick movements were impossible in my water home. It never occurred to me to move any faster or slower than the prevailing current of my sublime liquid world.

Then one day, without intention, I began to change.  My tail loosened and fell off, and I simultaneously sprouted legs.  It became impossible to breathe. I was suffocating!  Instinctively I ascended to the surface.  Projected my head out of the water and took the first inhaling breath in my new world.  Without thought or planning, my new legs leaped me out of my little pond.  With excellent peripheral vision I could see all around me.  I knew that I would never be the same.  I had metamorphosed into a new being.

I kind of miss my tail, it helped me swim along blissfully,frog05 but I am inspired by my new legs.  I can leap over most obstacles; With suction cup feet I can climb over vertical barrier.  Although time has changed me into a new being, I stay close to the place I was spawned…

I feel the energy of my frog totem when I am in my garden, think of my younger years or faced with an insurmountable problem.

 

On this last full moon of 2017, we Moon Mothers, gathered to discover or remember our guiding animal spirits.  In honor of Saraswati, each of us poetically expressed the essence of our personal animal totem.

May your untamed animal spirit inspire your dreams into courageous action.

Sincerely,

Light of Lakshmi

A few weeks ago I felt the world upon my shoulders.  With a burdened heart and sadness on my face, I walked down a public corridor.  My footsteps were heavy and my posture coiled as I plodded along.  From an adjacent hall bounced a vibrant maiden.  Light on her feet, her gait was airy and sure.  Her aura twinkled like a sparkler on the 4th of July.   Her smile was so bright it lit the hallway. She passed me on her merry way.  Her light was contagious.

I felt my spine straighten, and my face muscles relax into a smile.  Without a word or a glance her vibrant light, fueled my tiny embers of light, which ignited into remembrance of my power to switch on my own light.  Even in the darkness of heavy situations, I can choose light and grace over darkness and hostility.

“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”  Rumi

On this November full moon, we Moon Mothers dedicated our ceremony to Lakshmi, Goddess of abundant light and prosperity.  We shared our light as we each spoke of our own brilliant gifts.  We fed our sister’s soul-flame by acknowledging her brilliance and divine strengths.  On a dark bluff top, lit by a small center flame, our ritual became a visceral festival of lights.  Sincerely spoken words of acknowledgement and recognition polished the soul-light of the women so brightly, it could have been seen by google maps.

Lakshmi’s blessing of abundance was delivered, in both divine wealth and material richness.  Thank you, Michelle, for opening your sacred beach home for our gathering.  Thank you, Mary Baxter, for the delicious dinner.  Thank you, Eva Derksen for the delicate handcrafted Goddesses.  Thank you beautiful Moon Mothers, for showing up so brightly and sharing your light.

Lakshmi

May your light be kindled through darkness.

May you be the power source to arouse the luminescence in others.

Namaste,
