⇒Please adopt rescue pets⇐

#petsmakeahouseahome #petadoption #blesstheanimals

∴∴∴∴∴

A friendly reminder to please consider pet adoption from your local (or otherwise) pet rescue agency. Together we can bless our animals we share the planet with.

Rescue pets make outstanding companions, family additions, and warm the heart as we share our journey together.

 When possible donate time and or financial resources to a favorite animal/pet facility. They always can use a helping hand on the premises as well as financial support to supply medical treatments, food, toys, supplies, blankets, etc….

 Prayers to end animal atrocities ~ so that all animals have a beautiful 4ever home and healthy fit bodies makes a Huge difference. Come up with your own prayer to bless the animals and send it out.

*Please consider a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle*

Your Gifts in loving service to our beloved animals ~ in any way that works for you ~ adds to a planet with happy safe healthy blessed animals.

∴∴∴∴∴

Blessings for your pet (s) & All the animals!!!

May all rescue pets receive beautiful 4ever homes!

Thank you for viewing 🙂

Have a Blessed Day!

Mystery @atthelake #angelinblue

Mystery @atthelake *^Angel in blue^*

 

℘Mystery @atthelake #angelinblue

⊕Angel at tree 28⊕

 

⊕⊕⊕⊕⊕

The Day of Now

An angel to help you find your way

As you cross the lake

to experience your new now day

⊕⊕⊕⊕⊕

 

An angel calling to you

come, receive

 the sphere of light I hold

I greet you

this day

come, behold

 

⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗

The tree behind the angel is from a photograph I took  from a visit to Battery Park, New York. Somehow that image was chosen and then I just added the other elements. What I love about the creative process, at least in my experience, is often it has its own trajectory. Best to just go with it. 

 

Inspiration:

The inspiration for this blog post is multi ~ fold, however, primarily it is to serve as a reminder that we are the light and the journey back to Self Realization (crossing the “lake”) is our ultimate fulfillment while here on Earth. Although it seems like a journey, it is also not a journey. Mystery and truth meeting. 

⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗

Believe in Yourself ~ Serve Yourself:

The premise behind this imagery & poem is to believe without reservation ~ in yourself ~ your dreams ~ your potential.

♥To serve the “voice” that beats your heart ♥

Magic & Receiving

To be aware that magic lives in your receiving.

To lay open to magic around the corner ~ to magic in your corner ~~ let this be your transporter.

Let magic be the Wings you rally & set free 

Reinstituting the innocence and zest from our childhood into everyday trusting and magic!

 

⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗

In this post I have combined a resonance with the angelic kingdom and a reverence for the land of India. I have an eclectic nature so it works for me and I hope for you too.

It is my intention that this blog post will inspire you to hold onto your dearest dreams, believe in yourself,  cross the “lake” and rekindle an adoration to the mystical life!

I see with new eyes when I peer deeper than the surface value of anything. I hope you too will look at your life, surroundings, and the world in new and exciting ways! Where all becomes possible………

⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗

 

Cross over to the “lake”  (lake used as a symbol)

I chose a Indian Hindu reference, imagery, and video because I have a love, fascination, and admiration for the land, people, and culture of India ~ not to mention the supreme knowledge echoing within the land.

When I was 26 I learned transcendental meditation and a door opened of great interest and inquiry into the knowledge and sacredness of the Vedic Scriptures. I owe much to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of transcendental meditation.  His multiple lectures on eternal truth, wisdom, and knowledge of higher states of consciousness have had a profound impact on me (and so many others). Maharishi’s  simple yet powerful daily meditation practice to bring the awareness to the still quiet transcendental field of pure consciousness for evolution and stress release has been a life saver.

The Vedas are the religious texts which inform the religion of Hinduism (also known as Sanatan Dharma meaning “Eternal Order” or “Eternal Path”). The term veda means “knowledge” in that they are thought to contain the fundamental knowledge relating to the underlying cause of, function of, and personal response to existence. They are considered among the oldest, if not the oldest, religious works in the world. They are commonly referred to as “scripture”, which is accurate in that they can be defined as holy writ concerning the nature of the Divine. Unlike the scriptures of other religions, however, the Vedas are not thought to have been revealed to a certain person or persons at a specific historical moment; they are believed to have always existed and were apprehended by sages in deep meditative states at some point prior to c. 1500 BCE but precisely when is unknown.

Hindu Temple on a Lake ~ South India (internet photo)

Lake symbolism

Apart from rivers and streams, lakes were an important source of food and water to many ancient communities. Lakes offered mystery and a tantalizing source of drama and adventure to the people with imagination as the life beneath the surface was invisible and not fully known. Hence, overtime a number of myths became associated with the water bodies.

A lake in Hinduism is not just a body of stagnant water, but manifestation of god. In the Bhagavadgita, Lord Krishna states that of the lakes he is the vast ocean. Lakes exist not only in the world of humans but also in the heaven of Indra and in the supreme heaven of Brahma or Vishnu or Shiva. The Kaushitaki Brahmana Upanishad mentions (1.4) the existence Lake Ara and Lake Vijara in the world of Brahma, which a liberated souls have to cross on their way to the immortal world. Lakes are also resting places for many gods such as Brahma, Saraswathi, Lakshmi, and several other gods and goddesses.

The placid waters of a lake represent tranquility, mystery, life, flowering of consciousness, purity, impurity, duality, and illusion. It is also a place where celestial nymphs often descend from heaven and take a bath. A lake may house water fairies, kind spirits as well demonic and evil spirits, besides serpents like Kaliya which Krishna slew. Lakes nourish life and take life. The lake also symbolizes existence with lotus flowers representing the souls that remain untouched by the impurities present.

Associated with every Hindu temple is a small water reservoir or a water tank (kovila) where devotees bathe before entering the temple. A lake may also act like a portal and open into another world to present a mystery or pose a challenge. In the Mahabharata the Pandavas were put to test by a Yaksha when they entered a lake that was filled with poison. To save them, Dharmaraja had to answer several questions. It was in a Lake that Bhima met the king of serpents and obtained boons from him. The lake was also the place where Duryodhana hid in the end when his brothers and his entire army was destroyed by Pandavas and he was left alone. Symbolically thus lakes represent life, consciousness, mind, tranquility, duality, illusion, impermanence, dream world, stagnation, impurity, divinity, abode, world, mystery, mother, nourisher, and spirit world

℘Mystery @atthelake #angelinblue

 

Mystery @atthelake

standing

at the edge of the lake

in front of me

a beautiful angel in blue

asking me to partake

I shook my head to awake

shake shake shake

she said

cross the lake

times 3

take from me

my glowing sphere to shake

shake shake shake

the water with ripples ~ adorned in night glow

although it was wet it did not show

one foot then the other

across the lake I go

the lake water

a cast speller

onward I go

home ~ my inner dweller

the angel said

cross the lake

times 3

take from me

my glowing sphere to shake

shake shake shake

formations

surface to waves

 deeper I go

head to toe

consciousness gain

everything rearranged

crossing the lake

a mystical exchange

the angel said

cross the lake

times 3

take from me

my glowing sphere to shake

shake shake shake

an angel right here

come closer she called

here, take  this

the light sphere

her left hand outstretched

come get it

the light sphere

it seemed like a door

spellbound

I wanted it like never before

the angel said

cross the lake

times 3

take from me

my glowing sphere to shake

shake shake shake

on my way

I connect

direct

a magical effect

the angels arm

remained outstretched

an eternal stir

propels me more and more

although not moving

I draw near

the lake

turned to stillness

the angel said

cross the lake

times 3

take from me

my glowing sphere to shake

shake shake shake

blue crystal clear

I become more awake

the angel began singing

soft sounds

the light sphere

she was giving

the angel said

cross the lake

times 3

take from me

my glowing sphere to shake

shake shake shake

mist brimming

undulations

the lake air

indigo and samphire blue

my only field of view

a revealing

the lake was speaking

be once, meet once, repeat once

legend holds

secrets told

cross the lake

times 3

take from me

my glowing sphere to shake

shake shake shake

now daybreak

light through the tree

a jubilee

the new moon above

the angel glowing in love

my feet touched the land

miracles now at hand

shake shake shake

I crossed the lake

I reached for the glowing sphere

in the angels left hand

she released it

suddenly a loud cheer

her wings flapping ~ fulfilled

all that is possible

is right here

I looked on with eyes revered

Truth, the Goddess, and the Universe appeared

the angel said

you have crossed the lake my dear

the times 3 has been revealed

all your dreams and more

unleashed now

into the atmosphere

they are realer than near

they will never disappear

 blessings now to you

go

the light sphere

is you

all becomes new

in thankfulness I turned away

 I blew a kiss

gratitude for showing me the way

a new day has risen

Christ light given

crossing the lake

was a chance I had to take

you too

go now

cross the lake

take up your glowing sphere

to shake shake shake

the light sphere is you

like magic

all becomes new

blessed be this new day

when all awake

Bud to Bloom ~ *eyes of time*

The bud emerges from the nothingness

The bud receives powerful creator light

The bud is growing even if no evidence appears externally ~ it will blossom in its own way.

§Bud to Bloom§

⇔eyes of time⇔

⊗⊗⊗⊗⊗

→The Magical Transformation the flower goes through from bud to bloom⇔

⇒The analogous metamorphosis we also go through deep within our Soul from our bud state to full blooming⇐

∴The promise & blessing of staying the course∴

#childrenofthelight #wayshowers #keepersoftheflame

→In  the midst of varying circumstances where we desire progress to move faster ~ pearls of wisdom suggest we allow it to take its course ~ trusting and knowing in due season as directed by the Divine the bud will manifest into its full blossom↔

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

∇This is a splash of encouragement for all of us ~ the diligent Soul’s pioneering the way for the New Earth.  As the star children of Light ~ we are bravely traversing sacred ground as keepers of the eternal flame∇ Grace Be With us

δMay our steps be blessedδ

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

θThe *bud as a symbol of humanity’s path and our individual path of progression ~ that we are all on ~ into full embodiment of living as highly evolved beings. The *bloom* as the magical transformation of full blossoming from the bud state into our Divine sovereign status ~ individually & collectively ~ as Oneθ

ϖ Images are from our garden of hibiscus flowers ϖ

#eternalgarden #walkinthegarden #gardenofharmony

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whatever you may be growing and going through, it is my hope that this blog post may serve as confidence, support, and hope that you Will receive Victory ~ and to gather up inner strength and stamina to continue on ~ knowing that the Divine will dissipate all heartache, discomfort, and pain as the Great Divine Godhead see’s fit that moment to be. Let us trust and know that moment is just a step away ~ a breath away ~ it is here for us ~ let us rejoice in this knowing. Let’s awaken and rise to meet this Glory moment!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

§A conversation with the ∞eyes of time∞

§Bud to Bloom§

Oh ∞eyes of time∞ ~ I am finished with the classroom

let alone the standing room

enter I must the master’s playroom

the journey so long ~ it has gone along

not so says ∞the eyes of time∞

not when you have eternity in mind

but the labor so much

just ask an expectant mother waiting for her baby to touch

can’t I speed up the time? ~ I am staying the course

I know I am Source ~ I don’t outsource

no says ∞the eyes of time∞

but the nighttime feels in overtime ~ how much more of a climb?

∞the eyes of time∞ just mimic the rhyme

but I do tell you ~ says ∞the eyes of time∞

you are far past mid course

though ~ let go of tomorrow ~ let the past be divorced

now is your force ~ this I endorse

I spin you, weave you, magically all nine

I open your shrine in due time

like the grapes on the vine

when all is aligned ~ no longer blind ~ fully shined

you may not know

you will know when you know

that your flow was to show that your bloom was enclosed

nothing removed ~ wouldn’t you know

remember this ~ from long ago

then you are at your plateau

bridge to Thoreau

from there you will grow ~ full know

rainbow ~ it is just but a window

Bud to Bloom

you will have risen from the tomb ~ born a new from the Sacred Womb

into the ∞eyes of time∞

you will look into mine

Bud to Bloom

Go, now enter

the eternal garden of mine

perfect ~ complete ~ design ~ divine

your full blooming

this I decree for you

in My due time

your wintertime will warm

with your life reborn

miracles and wonder

shall be your new platform

from bud to bloom

BEHOLD ~ come ~ let us hear the trumpet blow

look see it now ~ like anyhow

allow

full blooming coming into focus

approach it

it awaits for you

see it within

now we begin

*The Full Blooming*

Blessings for our Full Blooming

May our walk be that of faith, trust, and knowing

May we allow the Great Divine to have our “time”

Thank you for viewing!!!!

Have a Blessed Day 🙂

Moon Rising ~ Moon in Me #moonbrew Grace

*^Samantha Pearl*^ Moon devotional

Samantha Pearl  ⊕New Earth Kitty⊕

◊Our rescue kitty Samantha Pearl serving as a  beautiful muse◊ Pearl is a symbol of the Moon & she was named after the Moon Goddess. Often I correlate a blog post on the Moon with her◊

#blessourpets

⇑ Moon Rising ⇑

#fullmoon #moonwithin #lunarlight

Silver Charm

⇒Moon in Me⇐

⊗devotional to get in touch with our inner moon⊗

♥Moon brew Grace♥

Getting in touch with our inner moon ~ as She reflects back to us what needs to be cleared from our inner store house*  *as well as revealing to us our true essence *treasures within ~ so we may be fully illuminated 🙂

Moon Goddess ~ Splashing Her mystical Grace & drowning us in Her intoxicating silvery charm #moonbrew

             As we connect inwardly with our sacred moon inside us 🙂 #moonrising

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Remember we must clear out to clear in.

The Moon (within us) serves as a reflection ~ lighting within us stale stagnant “stuff” that is required to clear ~ through  its recognition ~ surrendering ~ purging. The more we declutter within of all the old clamping’s ~ the more we make room within for the new to be enlivened & summoned forth. #outwiththeold #inwiththenew

We must do it ~ no one can do it for us. It is a gift we gift ourselves so that we may make room within/without for a life lived at our highest love light vibration as fully evolved enlightened beings.

Our inner moon & sun ~ that we all carry within us ~ our sacred divine feminine & masculine ~ work in consort with each other.

This relationship within us is gathered in greater symphonious levels as we acknowledge & take the “time” to go within & see what’s up with our inner moon & sun as much as possible. Leading to a more balanced life open to Grace.

This devotional is honoring our inner moon.

Let’s journey within to connect with our personal inner moon ~ our divine feminine within ~ gently summoning us & providing keys to “knowing thyself”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let’s take quiet “time” to connect with our sacredness ~ the divinity that we were created as.

 This self honoring serves us greatly & is the richness of riches.

Moments away from the busyness of one level of life & a turning towards ~  attuning  to and or being in nature ~ a comfortable space within our dwelling ~ anywhere that feels right ~ is a integral aspect of creating balance, peace, unity ~ lifting us higher into our truth & holy light.

∴The downloads we receive during quiet inner attuning are beyond precious. This is where we get the highest guidance for our lives∴

Thank you for honoring & loving yourself 🙂 This is one of the greatest gifts we can offer to ourselves 🙂

The heart is our connection ~ to our life ~ to all life

The sacred regions of the heart speak to us ~ ∇the search ends  listening begins∇

 The terrain of the heart is our healing sanctuary, our gospel of truth, our Way ~ our reunion with wholeness

The healing, love, & compassion we receive from our heart is the healing, love, & compassion we offer to the world

Through continued heart reverence ~ we experience more of the fullness of life ~ of who we are ~ we become planted in our “knowingness”

The intelligence of the heart, when we acclimatize with its certainty, gives rise to a higher order of being & living

~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I often frequent our rescue kitty, Samantha Pearl (-who rescued who is up for negotiation-) as a source of inspiration because we have much to learn from our blessed animals. Both domesticated & undomesticated. The wisdom & tender moments shared & expressed is beyond a gift. All animal lovers know this & regard animals as the wisdom keepers that they are.

Let’s allow the beloved animals we share the planet with to teach us, to guide us, to lead the way in a sense……….we must be aware, quiet, & still to receive & acknowledge the teachings they dispense & to be able to unravel the symbolic synchronizations. Big surprises in the form of revealings are rewards when we take time to notice & reflect on the teachings & meanings offered. 🙂

≈Blessings to a new world that only offers honor & respect to the animal kingdom≈

Winter Lion Solstice 2018 ~ *Lion Solstice Grace

Winter Lion Solstice 2018

December 21, 2018

 ΩLion Solstice GraceΩ

#birthofthesunwithin

♦ into the darkness which leads to the light ♦

 

 

*This original image is from a photo I took of one of the lions at the NYC Bronx Zoo this Summer 🙂 #nyclion #bronxzoo

 

We enter the winter solstice

shortest day of light of the year

the Northern Hemisphere leans farthest away from the sun during the winter solstice

creating the longest darkest night

we enter the dark abyss

the heavy darkness ~ the darkness that becomes the seeing ~ the darkness that takes away the darkness

we move through the darkness

to see what we can not see in the light

to traverse through the murky waters ~ where stale stagnant energy has resulted in paralysis

this energy summons the light within us

by moving us into & thrugh the darkness for regeneration

sparking tides of higher states of consciousness

  refreshment & graceful movement & flow

we become anew by virtue of this seeing

the darkness awakens the light

the light awakens the darkness

to see that all is light

 the inner lighthouse shines the way back to the shore

so that we are transformed

a spiritual celebration with matter

 

ΦWhy must we enter the darkness?……

the darkness clears the passage way to the opened door of our dearest wishes

 

the lands become still ~ quietude ~ colder weather ~ water freezes ~ stand stills ~ snow

trees become bare ~ vegetation takes a respite ~ stars are bright on a wintry night

motionless ~ silent ~ dark emptiness proclaims higher wisdom

the intelligence of nature guides us in like fashion

the earth prepares ~ so we prepare

 nature turns our attention within

to echo this symbolically ~ in sync

the animals also join this trajectory

even here in S Florida nature prompts us

 

⇒We move through the darkness…..

so we germinate new seeds that blossom in due time

 

δThe darkness invites us …..

to breathe in

that which has never been breathed in before

to breathe out

newness

to offer the key that unlocks our truth

to release the heavy chains ~ to become the soaring bird ~  up high ~ atop the mountain peak

the darkness makes way for the light

to know the only Way is the Way

we speak to our darkness ~ that knows only light

 the light calls to the darkness ~ to know it is light

to end the suffering

to being acquainted with the hidden no longer hidden

to know what is within you

 

⊂The edges of darkness recede & upon exiting we are exalted⊃

we lift thine eyes up ~ to the light

to see the light ~ to know we are the light

we bow down in holy servitude to the light

we remember that we are light

 we live in Freedom

 

⊗As the light dawns & shines brighter so does our holy knowing⊗

through the darkness we emerge victorious

like the lion

awake at night ~ awake through the darkness ~ awake when all are asleep

lunar light that meets up to dance with the solar light

a vibrant golden mane ~ golden light ~ golden crown

 the lion ~ a sacred symbol ~ goddess ~ god

the lion ~ solar symbol ~ majesty of divinity ~ kings & queens

the birth of the Light within us

strength ~ courage ~ power ~ might

walk with the lion this winter solstice

gain the lion’s

mastery of self

 

 

 

∴Winter Lion Solstice Blessings∴

May you emerge Victorious

Thank you for viewing!!!

Have a blessed day 🙂

* Christ Light Blessings* ~ birth^rebirth

 

◊Christ Light Blessings◊

Birth ∧ Rebirth

Mother Mary & baby Jesus desaturated with neutral tones

Mother Mary & baby Jesus black and white version

Mother Mary & baby Jesus full color version

A baby as a symbol of birth ^ rebirth.

The awakening within us ~ the birth within us ~ as the Christ Light that we are ~ a rebirth tangibly experienced as the Ultimate Gift

************

Inspiration

With the holidays upon us I felt guided to blog on the Christ Light, an approach an art professor recommended to me, opening to greater ways of seeing, and how all these are tied together.

»An exploration ~ a series of expressions ~ based on the birth representative of the Christ Light»

What better subject matter than the Christ birth as an exploration ~ reflecting back the inner journey taking place.

Given that Home is truly found within ~ “Home for the Holidays” takes on a whole new meaning.

The image above is from a photo I took at a local church from their live nativity outdoor scene. Aren’t the live nativity presentations the best! Such a serene silence and peace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Art School Throwback

*Gaining Deeper Insights: Know Thyself*

^Expanding views through multiple perspectives^

While I was in art school, my painting professor would make mention his advocacy & encouragement of creating a “series” ~ various interpretations of a given subject matter as opposed to creating  just one interpretation.  Although at the time, I did not fully “get it” ~ I did however hold this in my store bank as I valued his wisdom.

I remember, also from art school, while in drawing class, all of us encircled around a apple on a pedestal ~ easels set up ~ drawing a apple for many consecutive hours. Yes, many. This intense focus ~ observing of this little ole’ apple provided Huge deeper significance. I walked away from my drawing class with such an enriching & appreciation of this apple ~ feeling like I new it like never before.

Rolling right along…..most certainly it is beneficial to create a series of expressions contained in the one. This has implications on various levels, beyond the artistic. Since the outer “reality” really doesn’t exist, except as a direct reference point of our inner world ~ consciousness ~ this key frame holds great significance ~ to explore beyond one created ~ to look beyond one determined conclusion or expression. This produces a broadening ~ a broadening within of who we are, of the world we live in, & most importantly what our truth is & to shine that found truth.

Creating a series, opening up to an array of potentials ~ helps us drop stagnate/old/limiting beliefs and moves us closer to a unified reality. Diving deeper into a given subject matter that brings joy offers many rewards ~ within and then without.

I encourage you to create a series of something in an area of personal interest and check out for yourself new insights gained through this process.

 

Season’s Greetings

During this Season of gift giving & receiving ~ there is no greater gift we can present  then the gift of inner exploration and reflection, in both honest & true ways.

This gift grants us the opportunity to become more fully acquainted with ourselves ~ “know thyself” ~ leading step by step into the molding & shaping of a highly evolved enlightened being. Making decisions, taking action, having thoughts and feelings that serve us & the planet in the highest light. Most significantly we become empowered.

Truth draws a confirmation that nothing “out there” really has a hold on us ~ nothing dictates to us how we feel ~ or what will or will not happen ~ no influence has a governing force unless we allow it to. This becomes stabilized as we take continued self responsibility.

Although the habitual act of throwing out “blame” somewhere out there is often a first response, we can through diligent choosing again look inside ourselves as the source, come to truthful acknowledgement, offer ourselves a wider perspective laced in peace and forgiveness, and take up new thoughts, feelings, and actions based on an empowered platform.

We are our own determining factor ~ only looking to ourselves for our reality

The only real “thing” we need to be informed of is what is going on within our psyche. This provides the grace to live as the highest light that we are ~ seeing with new eyes ~ listening with new ears ~ experiencing a newness ~ providing clarity ~ as we move closer to our truth.

^Dare to experience this as the Grand Christ Birth we are all destined to live^

We all must “do” the inner work necessary to bring forth this freedom in our lives ~ the birthing, the rebirth, the full realization of the Divinity that resides within. Oh, how patient the Divine is! Let us invigorate in greater measure our Christ Light birth. Let us bestow awakened gifts to ourselves ~ this is our liberating force.

************

Gifting Ourselves

We all know what we give our attention to grows ~ this Season ~ & always ~ let’s give ourselves attention ~ going within ~ exploring ~  finding all the magic & all that we desire within. Let’s stay fixed on this as much as possible ~ relinquishing the habitual need to “find” it somewhere else.

All will benefit from our personal growth ~ as all is interconnected.

∞ Blessings to all those BRAVE enough to go within ~ taking self responsibility ~ on the journey of self discovery & illumination! May your life be filled with Grace ~ revelation after revelation ~ filled with Divine Gifts as you gift yourself∞

^^^^^^^^^^^^

Wishing you and your loved ones a magical holiday Season filled with God’s cheer!

^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

***May the Christ Light be awakened in all!***

Christmas Joy, Merriment, and Grace!

Blessings of joyous inner explorations and seeing multiple perspectives!!

+ seven = 16

In the Space of Winter ~ a time to prepare

∞In The Space of Winter∞

#samanthapearl #newearthkitty

⊗Winter⊗ ~  a time to go within ~ to prepare ~ for change

for what will be next in our lives

We grow ever closer with our Souls ~ receding into its unspoken magic

#pausereflect #pawsreflect

In The Space of Winter

In the space of winter

my soul takes refuge

silent river within, whisper, free thinker

When all is quiet ~ lunar reflect ~ hibernate ~ transfix

 a touch of cold on the finger tips

some land lay stripped ~ soon to be the winter solstice ~ sacred upon my lips

all becomes moved to go within

nestle inside the pine tree ~ seeing within ~ wherein

comply ~ submit ~ in Spring reappear ~ take ownership

In the space of winter

my soul takes refuge

the Earth, the animals, the people, the plants

a time to reflect, so still, I hear my heart beat

in sync ~ heart heat ~ sweet retreat

pre heat ~ time sheet ~ window seat

In the space of winter

my soul takes refuge

snow trance ~ winter circumstance ~ avalanche

frosty ~ wintry wind ~ bare tree branch

though the outer be cold ~ the hearts fire remains warm

advance ~ romance ~ at first glance ~ song & dance

the night chill ~ daytime sun spill ~ we become distilled

stand still ~ refill ~ good will

snow drift ~ pole shift ~ bestow gifts

decode ~ reload ~ know-er knows it ~ know~er becomes the known

In the space of winter

my soul takes refuge

 

 

Blessings of Winter Grace

Thank you for viewing!

Have a Blessed Day 🙂

− four = 4

Celtic Goddess Brigid ~ the promise of spring *devotional hymn*

Goddess Brigid ~ fiery potent One with sacred farm animals

Goddess Brigid and presiding elements of fire and water

⊕Goddess Brigid ~ The Promise of Spring⊕

Inspiration:

Diving into the Goddesses and becoming more acquainted with them is a passion of mine. This blog post is a celebration of Celtic Goddess Brigid through some background knowledge, a poetry devotional, and art imagery.

The images were originally a model photo session that I turned into art images  honoring Goddess Brigid. She presides over many areas and is associated with the spring season, fertility, healing, poetry, and blacksmithing.

Imbolc celebrated February 1st ~ is a Celtic tradition and festival celebrating the onset of spring and is associated with Goddess Brigid. This ties into her role as a fertility Goddess as well.

“On Imbolc Eve, Brigid was said to visit virtuous households and bless the inhabitants.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

⊗Celtic Goddess Brigid⊗

 ◊Divine Feminine◊

∞the High One  ~ the Exalted One  ~ the Bright One∞

∇Celtic Mother Goddess ~ Fire Goddess∇

∴Sacred Flame∴

φFire Magicφ

                  Celtic Pantheon  ~ Ireland            

 ⇒Triple Goddess⇐

Goddess of Forge & Hearth   #celtic #irish #diety #gaelic

Goddess of Smithcraft ~ Poetry ~ Healing ~ Fertility

Wide ranging Patroness  ~ #domesticatedanimals #justice #peace #unity #childbirth

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

§The Magic of Brigid§

IMBOLC

Season of Spring ~ Celebrated as Imbolc on February 1st

(sometimes celebrated February 2nd depending on the midway point from the winter solstice & spring equnox)

Blessed Imbolc ~ “in the belly of the Goddess”

Magical energy from the feminine attributes of the Goddess

*Imbolc ~ we begin to awaken from our winter slumber ~ the belly of Mother Earth begins to wiggle & shake off the winter ~ as the animals ~ plants ~  and trees begin to rise again from a winter dormancy ~ as we to begin again 🙂

One of the ways Imbolc is celebrated is by making Brigid’s Cross. Here is a video demonstrating step by step process.

Example of Brigid’s cross ~ internet image

Imbolg Pregame: How to Make a Cross of Bríd (Brigid’s Cross) – YouTube

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Through connecting with Imbolc we can recharge ourselves with the newness & freshness of the coming of Spring ~ we begin to see signs everywhere ~ within ourselves ~ new growth emerging upon the Earth ~ birds singing this in song ~ life springs forth once again ~ magic in our hearts & in the air. A rekindling and a new awakening ~ §The Magic of Brigid§

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When to invoke Goddess Brigid

Invoke Goddess Brigid into your life when transformation is needed in any area of your life ~  where a new manifestation is desired. Peering into the symbolism of her many aspects we gain significant knowledge. For example Brigid presides over midwifery ~ this is also representative of a rebirth of the new within us ~ when the “old” is no longer integral to our evolution. Through her Sacred Flame our metamorphosis is birthed ~ her fiery flame burns & extinguishes that which needs to be disbanded from our core essence into sacred transfiguration. This fire aspect is also regarded as “Fire of Inspiration” as patroness of poetry. This divine spark of illumination  can also aid in creativity, innovation, originality ~ as Brigid will show you clever inventive approaches/ideas/methodologies to serve you in your endeavors.

Brigid is a Great Healer ~ call upon her for healing on any level (mental/emotional/spiritual/physical) ~ especially when looking for naturalistic herb plant based healing knowledge & direct impact for health. If you serve in the healing arts you may want to summon Brigid’s  healing energy magic as it transfers into patients, clients, etc…. Invoke Goddess Brigid as the Great Mother Goddess that she is ~ converse with her & share your thoughts & feelings with her & receive lightning wisdom & decoding.

You can focus in on developing & or further developing your magical gifts, abilities, & insights. Ask Brigid to assist you in getting to know yourself as your magical self.

With Brigid’s association with fertility & childbirth ~ you may connect in with Her for yourself or another in the physical domain of pregnancy ~ getting pregnant ~ healthy pregnancy ~ & childbirth blessings.

Brigid is also associated with the Earth & the element of water. Through out Ireland there are many sacred wells devoted to her. Water being a integral & vital element to both our bodies & the Earth. Some symbolic water references can be inclusive of concepts & ideas related to living water, sacred springs, flow of the divine, water as both nourishing & purifying ~ water can also represent the subconscious & heightened divine powers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

⊕Let’s begin our devotional to Beloved Goddess Brigid to invoke her Holy Presence⊕

λPrepare to receive Brigid’s sacred flame……..

*If possible light a candle in honor of Goddess Brigid and as a intensification of receiving & enlivening*
