On this first BLUE Moon of 2018
We will dedicate our circle to our Pure Potentiality
and our clairvoyant mind that speaks via imagery and poetry.

 

Also 2017 Remembering our Circles, slideshow

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,

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,

Goddess Ixchel ~ Medicine Woman

The ancient Maya believed in many Gods, but only one Goddess, Ixchel;  Medicine woman, sage, and weaver.  She presides over child-birth, wounded warriors, and the ill.  She is depicted as a Crone, to symbolize wisdom. Her crown is a snake coiled on her head, symbolic of new life and awakened kundalini. There seems to be a little Hindu belief in this mythology, hence she is a weaver.  Ixchel, carries a large satchel over one shoulder and a walking stick in her other hand.  The large satchel symbolized strength and healing remedies, the walking stick, a symbol of her earth travels.

All women of our Moon Mothers tribe, possess a unique healing gift.  Some heal by way of traditional and herbal medicine. Some heal, via Reiki, humor, song, compassionate listening, and giving sage advice.

Ixchel, reminds us that Mother Earth provides us all with free medicine. Mother Earth gives us an abundant supply of the obvious, herbs, food, and water, to keep us healthy and heal our ailments.  There’s also, that not so obvious, health-giving gift she constantly provides. It’s her subtly restorative vibration.  Her rhythmic heartbeat, aligns us into flowing health. We need only to connect, to feel her therapeutic resonance.

As we Navigate todays modern society, it’s so easy to become disconnected from Mother Earth’s perfect healing pulsation.  As we walk through this world wearing shoes and spending a lot of time in buildings, we become disconnected from her health-giving frequency.

On this full moon we invoked the spirit of Ixchel.  We Moon Mothers created prayer flags, for planetary healing and wove them together in honor of the weaving, healing Goddess, Ixchel. In the mystical meadow surrounded by ancient Redwood trees we laid on our backs and connected to the heart beat of Mother Earth.  Through a guided  meditation, we moved into our imaginal mind to clear our chakras so that our kundalini serpent could rise to our crowns.

With new clarity, awakened kundalini and a deep connection to Mother Earth, each women spoke of her innate healing gifts.

Thank you Mary Baxter for providing turkey dinner,  Thank you Jennifer Gray for hosting us at your sacred home.  Thank you Erica Crawford for excellent photography.

Below is a visual glimpse into our sacred circle.

Why do we gather on the Full Moon?

When Mother Moon, moves from the shadow of Mother Earth and is fully illuminated in her brilliance; We gather in darkness to connect to her light. It’s a reminder of who we are as women. We are the keepers of an ancient tradition, passed down to us by our ancestral grandmothers. We are the bridge to the Divine Feminine. We are the chain-links that connects history to the present. We are the chain-links that connects to the women of the future. We are the wisdom keepers. We are the Warriors. We are the protectors of the weak. We are the Peace Makers. We are the healers. We are the keepers and creators of ritual. We are the keepers of universal rhythm.

Why do we gather?  Maat01Maat02

To soften our steps.

To fuel our fierceness.

To Strengthen our voice.

To heighten all senses.

To celebrate the seasons.

To connect with Mother Earth.

To Share wisdom.

To live abundance.

To be bold.

To create.

To lighten our heart.

To beat the drum.

To dance our light.

This is why we gather…
