What Would You Do If God-Goddess Stopped By Your House?

What would I do if God-Goddess stopped by to visit me?

Well, I’m pretty sure I would drop everything I was doing that I thought was so important and focus on being ready. I’d make sure I looked my best, cleaned up my home and prepared the freshest organic food I had in the house. I would be so excited to meet this benevolent being that has given me life.

I would speak with love and respect, and without judgment. And I would be prepared to listen. What could one say to impress God/Goddess. No, I don’t think I’d spend much time trying to make an impression with my accomplishments. I think I would ask questions and listen with all my heart to understand the greater truths that seem to elude me.

Then I touch my own heart. The God-Goddess of life is right here inside my heart and mind and body. So, now I ask myself, “How shall I treat the God-Goddess within me?”

Am I making sure that she is well-taken care of? Do I make sure she eats the best food I can provide and lives in the best environment I can offer? Do speak to her with love and respect, and without judgment? Do I listen to the Divine wisdom that is inside of her?

The Divine lives in everyone and everything around me as well for it has all been created from the breath of God-Goddess.  “And so, “ I could ask myself, “How do you treat everyone and everything that you encounter?”

Do I give the best that I have to give? Do I speak to others with love and respect, and without judgment? Do I listen with my ears and my heart to what they wish to tell me? Do I treat the beings of the earth with loving regard? Do I treat my possessions with care?

Am I willing to stop being so busy with everything I think is so important and instead, prepare a place within myself to receive the words and the love of God-Goddess in my life?

Isn’t it interesting how quickly life comes into perspective when we consider that God-Goddess is within and we are providing the Divine with an experience of life through each of us?

So please, allow me to ask you, “What would you do if God-Goddess stopped by to visit you?”

Opening to My Purpose

Guided Meditation in the Divine Feminine

divine feminine, sacred feminine
Find a quiet moment. Turn off the phone, the TV, the stereo, and commit to not answering the door. This is your time. Your sacred time. Tell the children, your spouse, or your room-mate to leave you undisturbed for a while. You have sacred work to do. You might want to light a candle or place a bowl of water near you, but most of all, what you need most is your solitude.

Allow your heart to open by breathing gently, accepting the nourishment of the air, the day, spirit, whatever fills you with peace.  Focus on your womb. Allow all your attention to connect to the physical or energetic womb within you. Feel/know/sense/see/hear its darkness, its vastness, its sacred nature, and its ability to hold all of you in love and compassion.

Allow yourself to grow steadily still inside. Give the mind time to quiet down holding each thought and feeling that arises within your compassion. As you enter the sacred stillness ask about your sacred purpose. It is important that your purpose arise from the stillness rather than your busy mind, so give this plenty of time.

Allow the truth of what you came here to do to emerge in the light of your essence—the expression of your Divine nature in service.

When you feel full, breathe deeply, exhaling through your mouth, bringing yourself into the awareness of this moment. Wiggle your fingers and toes. Gently open your eyes. Live from your purpose.

Holding Us All In Their Compassion

Last weekend I had the privilege of witnessing three initiated elders hold compassionate space for the world for three full days. 

I was deeply moved as I watched parts of myself unfolding through the dreamtime, as well as in my thoughts and feelings—all the while knowing that they were holding some part of me.

They held the parts of us that feel afraid, lonely, unworthy, abandoned, forgotten, unseen and unheard. They hold us in so much pure compassion that our most difficult feelings begin to dissolve and we are able to experience our heart’s truest desires and our actual potential.

This sounds easy doesn’t it—holding people in compassion? Yet, being the kind of compassion that can hold the emotional wounds of the world, without agenda, expectation, or judgment for three days is a tremendous task. 

They have been dedicated to learning the true art of holding as shared in this video series: 

These beautiful elders have been preparing for this ceremony for a year—well, probably in truth for all their lives.

While it is true that most of us can access our compassion without too much effort, it takes a great deal of self-honesty and love to hold oneself or others in compassion without expectation that anyone change.

And yet, it is this pure compassion that is the heart of the Sacred Feminine, and in such loving arms, we find our spiritual freedom to be our true and most sacred selves.

I honor you blessed women—Ariann Thomas, Cindy Mills and Helen Sherry for your deep commitment to compassion and to all of us.

May the world be blessed by more women who are willing to face themselves in the depth of their own truth and love all that they see.

Begin 2013 Seeing the Divine Reflection of You!

Meditation in the Sacred Feminine

Create a quiet moment.  Sit comfortably and close your eyes.  Begin by breathing with awareness, experiencing each breath as love and fulfillment.  Fill every cell with this love.  Now, allow everything within you to become still.

In the deep stillness of the Sacred Feminine womb, allow yourself to enjoy a moment simply being you—being witnessed as you are and loved as you are. You do not need to do anything to be loved. For a moment, consider letting go of your wants and desires. They will unfold in their time. This moment is a time for acknowledging who you are.

Look at yourself as though you are gazing into a still pool. Look into the very soul of you. There in the depths of you is the profound beauty of the Divine gazing back—seeing you, grateful for you, loving you as an emanation of Divine love.

Let this love for you fill every cell of your being, for it is the Divine of you recognizing itself.

As you slowly release yourself from the gaze, breathe deeply, exhaling through your mouth. Wiggle your fingers and toes. Gently open your eyes.  Live as the beautiful reflection of the Divine that you are.
