Wisdom Wands

One of the best things about our Zoom full moon ceremony is that Moon Mothers from hundreds of miles away, were able to join us.  

It was a wonderful surprise when Heather logged in from Maine.  She moved away a few years ago and we missed her dearly.  She was sitting outside, lit by candle and moon light.  We began out gathering at 7:30pm pacific time, a half hour before sunset and the moon was still below the horizon.  It was 10:30pm on the East Coast.  She panned the camera to show us mother moon in all her super full moon brilliance.  It was a lovely little time travel.

On this night we dedicated our ceremony to the Goddess Ixchell, Mayan Medicine woman.  read more about Ixchell  Our healing medicine work had begun days before our full moon cyber circle;  When each Moon Mother foraged for the perfect stick, branch or root for the armature of her Wisdom Wand. I love how our creative tribe thinks out of the box.  Caroline chose a root and Shannan choose a sinuous willow branch.  The invocation fabrics were just as creative, Heather used pieces of her wedding dress and Lorna used pieces of her hippy blouse from the 1970s, Danielle used flower vines from her sacred garden and Kimberly ( who doesn’t live on the coast) used seashells from her visit to Half Moon Bay.

During our time together we finished our wands. We wound our armatures with fabric and string as we recited healing words, that raised our collective energy and sent a message of well being to the universal mind.  We all spoke at the same time creating a cacophony of healing sound.  Interesting how one voice would rise with clear strength and then fade back into the many, then another would ring with clarity.  Our unrehearsed words wove together into a symphony of the highest vibration of a healed planet, gratitude and personal power.  Our voices rang out, on line, across the planet and into the universal Goddess field.

Our wands hold the power of intention, created in high personal and collective vibrational energy.  Below are a few pictures of the Wisdom Wand Talismans we created. 

Below is a video of our closing song, sung by Danielle Kane.

We Moon Mothers will always find a way to gather and celebrate the divine feminine.

Zoom Circle

As keepers of the ancient tradition of gathering on full moon to honor the divine feminine, we carried on in a fashion that would have amazed our ancestral grandmothers.

We good world citizens, separately gathered together via Zoom (video conferencing).

full moon zoom 4-20

This was our first ever remote gathering.  We dedicated our ceremony to Maat; Egyptian Goddess of balance and justice.

The fear, sadness, and anxiety from the pandemic is permeating humanity and weighing like boulders on our hearts. To walk through this world with a heavy heart is an injustice, but so is this virus.

Last night we engaged in modern ritual to lighten our hearts and bring balance to our lives, even if it was just for a while.

Before our Zoom gathering, each woman created a personal altar dedicated to healing the world.

Then we wrote about all the heaviness in her heart.  Symbolic of letting go, the pages of sorrow were burned.  Then; time to tune into the Zoom meeting.

I wasn’t sure if we should jump right into circle speak or keep with the tradition of opening ceremony.  The wise Moon Mothers chose to begin with a modified opening  ritual.  The familiar words helped me settle in this foreign way of holding circle.  We were miles apart from each other, but I could feel them settle too.

One of the best ways to balance a heavy heart is through laughter.  This always worked well in past circles, when we dedicated our ceremony to Maat.  I was ready for some giggles. When we got to circle speak (joke time) it wasn’t easy to laugh.  A few chuckles but no deep belly laughs.  Shannan stepped up and led a yoga laughing practice.  That did prime the pump to start the laughing flow. Positive stories of planet healing were told and it brought peace and hope to our circle. In closing, Danielle led us in our traditional closing song.

I look forward to easy belly laughs without the aid of wine, although it is 4 20 all month.

Be well.

Cyber Full Moon Ceremony

You’re invited to a Cyber Full Moon Ceremony

Tuesday April 7th 7pm.

Dedicated to Maat, the Egyptian Goddess of balance.

As good world citizens, we are complying with all efforts to stop the virus by not physically gathering in our traditional full moon ceremony.  Instead, I invite you join me in a Zoom call to continue our sisterhood of celebrating the divine feminine and embodying a goddess archetype.

On this full moon I invite you to set up your personal altar with the intention of balance and healing for the world. If possible put a feather and candle on your altar. 

Our intention is to bring balance into our lives by letting go of our burdens and engaging in humor.

Once you have set up your altar, write down the heaviest burdens you carry at this time. Once you’ve written all your worried heart burdens, burn that piece of paper as a symbol of letting the heaviness go.

Please do this personal part of the ceremony, before our zoom call begins at 7pm.

During our cyber circle speak time, we will each share our favorite joke. 

Maat full moon

Maat, Goddess of justice and balance, hails from the Egyptian pantheon. According to mythology she is the gate-keeper who appears at the end ones life. With an ostrich feather in her hair, she stands sturdy and forthright holding a scale to weigh your heart. If your heart is heavier than the feather you must reincarnate as human to learn the lessons of a balanced life. It’s an injustice to walk through your life with a heavy heart.

If you’ve never used Zoom before, it’s super easy! You can log on from your computer or smart phone. You don’t have to join Zoom to join a meeting, but you may have to download a bit of software or an app.

Divine Feminine

There was a time when I would have been accused of being a heretic for my work.  My truest calling is to resurrect the belief in Goddess.  Her many names, and miracles almost forgotten for two thousand years.  The “new” patriarchal belief of the divine, buried her legendary power for centuries. The ancient people got it right; when they observed the births of Spring and conceived the idea that it must be the work of Divine Mother Goddess.  Goddess is the fertile seed from which all new creation springs from. 

Long before the “Lord Father God” belief, humans understood God to be Mother. Have you ever witnessed a miracle? You have if you have ever held a new born baby, witnessed a plant sprout from dirt, or had your breath taken away by art.  Creation is a miracle. Be it a baby, art piece, invention, or a business, to create is divine. 

The concept of ONE supreme spirit is a lot to comprehend. Ancient people divided the “ALL” into comprehendible archetypes giving each a different name and power possession.  The belief of Lord Father God in heaven, separates women from the divine by gender and place.  Ladies, I am telling you that God is Goddess inasmuch as your vagina is as vital as man’s penis.   She is not a holy ghost, that lives in heaven, she is you. She is that part of you that goes out into the world and makes a living.  That part of you that relishes the cool river water and soft grass below your bare feet.  That part of you that creates beauty. That part of you that plants hard dormant seeds knowing that beautiful new life will spring fourth.  That all knowing intuitive part that leads you to circles of women.  Have you ever felt serious and anxious and suddenly broke into laughter? That’s your Goddess self reeling you back into balance.  You are Goddess inasmuch as I am Goddess.  There is only one Divine.  We are all Divine, creating & dormant, loving & fighting, thriving & struggling simultaneously, we are One… Every living being is connected by an invisible thread vibrating at high, medium and low frequencies tethered together as ONE. We are feminine and masculine, Goddess and God, human and divine, separated only by domination.  

Below are some images from our Full Moon Ceremony that was dedicated to Ostara Celtic Goddess of Spring.

We have three Spring Equinox Events coming up, visit EVENTS PAGE for details.  Hope you can join us.

 

Sincerely,

Tamara Trejo

Utopia Greenhouse

“Feels like I am standing in front of a fresh blank canvas with clean brushes and every color of fine paint, inspired to create a new work of art. With a large brush stroke, I begin with indigo, the color of intuition; I paint a circle. In this circle, is a life of ease, creativity, abundance and like minded Utopian Women.  The concept is clear, the smaller details will take shape as I walk through the threshold of this new decade.”

I wrote the above statement in my news letter on New Year’s Day.  Now I have walked through the threshold of 2020 and my vague vision is crystalizing into the reality of  Utopia in the Greenhouse.  Last weekend we held a painting class and Spiral Muse Band concert, both events were fantastical.

Technically it’s still winter, but the Greenhouse is blooming with creativity and plans for a lot more soul soothing events.

Here are links for two upcoming circles.

Batter of My Life

batter of my life

My Spirt is Young and energetic.

My Soul is ancient and infinite.

Spirit, the performer.

Soul, the witness.

Spirit, happy in the doing.

Soul, content in being. 

Spirit, seeks. 

Soul, knows.

Spirit, creates the painting. 

Soul, inspires the image. 

Sprit stands before the blank canvas with paint brush in hand,

Soul informs the right hue and brush stroke.

Spirit writes and writes so many words.

Soul edits to the essence.

Spirit walks onto the dance floor and begins to move.

Soul becomes one with the music with fluid movements.

Spirit cooks a delicious meal.

Soul delights in the smell and taste.

Spirit is swift.

Soul is compassion.

Spirit says, let’s go on an adventure and create something magnificent.

Soul says, we are warm and content, don’t move, just breath.  

Sprit says, let’s have a party and celebrate. 

Soul says, let’s dive deep and meditate.

Spirit says, the colors of the sunrise are so pretty I’ll get my camera.

Soul says, be still, and marvel.

Many years ago, I gave Spirit too much voice; always creating and seeking satisfaction, rarely knowing contentment. 

Seeking satiation I retreated from the world and gave Soul a stronger voice. In that time of “Being” I experienced too many dreams unrealized.

Spirit and Soul hold the same weight; they sit perfectly balanced on the scale of justice.  One feather breath more from either and alignment tips. 

With stable strength they guide me in living a balanced life.  They reside within my body, providing a life force nutritional batter.

When I feel the oneness of both folded together in perfect consistency life is a piece of cake.

For a New Beginning

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.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

By John O’Donohue
