Kali’s knife is clear and strong,
a shining blade cutting through illusion,
doubt, pain, and struggle
to reveal the Truth emanating at your core.

Ngoshkwe/Star Woman’s Message

Trace my beams of light marks
into your ancient patterns of knowing
to reveal your rising choices
and extend your view of Infinity.

I can allow your gifts to meld with my own
so the magic percolates carefully
throughout your known world and beyond,
and you can hear my whispers echo
across your lines of “can and can’t have”
until there is nothing but open space for creating.

I shift your reality so it turns in alignment
with All-That-Is in eternal light.
And I lift your frame of reference
to include all time as one.

Pick a Goddess Resource for the New Year

Happy 2015 to everyone!

Dreams & Visions for 2015

Cereidwen, copyright R. McGrath

At this time of year, we often hear about and/or make our own New Year’s resolutions, and the probability of accomplishing them or not. But how about considering our dreams and visions for the new year instead?

One of Cereidwen’s self-reflection questions in Goddess Heart Rising asks us if we are paying attention to our dreams and visions. It seems to me that all too often “resolutions” come out of our mental activity, our comparisons and “shoulds,” rather than full connection with our hearts and souls.

Last night I had the gift of listening to Flo Aeveia Magdalena’s meditation, part of Soul Support Systems’ free Monday Manifesting Mastery conference call series, for calling upon our hearts and souls in combination with our Divine Blueprint and future in order to envision our opportunities for 2015.

Tomorrow I will have the joy of participating in a shamanic drumming journey and Maori medicine wheel drawing with dear friends for additional perspectives on the same purpose.

And this Sunday, January 4th, I will have the honor of facilitating Goddess Heart Rising for the New Yearan opportunity to embody your Inner Goddess through poetry, music, simple movement, guided meditation, mask creation, chanting, group story making an more in a supportive circle on the 1st full moon of the year!

It’s when we create our futures from as much of our vast selves as possible that the field is fertile with magic, helping us to create what truly suits us! And there is so much magic I am looking forward to for 2015!

May your holiday and year reflect the magic that you are, such that we may all revel in its benefits together!

A very happy New Year’s Eve and 2015 to you!

Cereidwen: Goddess for the Winter Solstice & Waxing Moon

Cereidwen’s Message

Melt
through layers
of radiating waves
that pull through time’s eccentricities
and score sounds beyond range of hearing,
into modes that excavate
our twilight nature
through silent song.

Book Magic at Unity of Inner Peace

Had such a wonderful time sharing Goddess Heart Rising and The Third Mary at Unity of Inner Peace in Marquette, MI yesterday. The circle of attendees is always so welcoming!

The group opened deeply to the wisdoms they drew from these books. I always find such magic in allowing these works to do their thing with people!

A big thank you to all who attended and all who are part of Unity’s framework of support!

Questions for December’s Waning Moon

"Modern Day Kuan Yin," copyright Roslyn McGrath

“Modern Day Kuan Yin,” copyright Roslyn McGrath

Kuan Yin is one of the first spiritual teachers I became acquainted with on my conscious path and one that I feel especially close with. She’s known for helping to bring about everyday sorts of miracles, rather than the out-of-the-blue kind, and for her great compassion, giving her the description “She who hears the cries of the world.”

It seems to me one of the things people want most is to be heard, to be truly listened to and acknowledged. When you listen with your full attention, your full presence, it’s an irreplaceable gift.

Perhaps you can recollect a time where someone really deeply listened to you, and what it meant to you.

The art of listening can be cultivated, a very worthwhile effort, as we must have the capacity to listen in order to truly grow beyond our own immediate perceptions and possible misconceptions.

To be able to listen with compassion is both a skill and a gift, something required in our efforts to experience Heaven on Earth.

So in relation to all this, the Questions for  December’s Waning Moon, adapted from Goddess Heart Rising: Paintings, Poems & Meditations for Activating Your Divine Potential, which you might want to consider through this holiday season are:

How supported do I feel in my life? How well do I support others?
