What kinds of changes are happening in your life right now?

What kinds of change would you like to create or to navigate less painfully, more gracefully?

My writing, channeling and healing work deal with this theme continually. As human beings, we are both resistant to and birthed through change. Some say it’s the one thing you can count on.

Only the eternal is unchanged, which we are at our root. I believe we’re eternal beings choosing to expand through temporal experiences. So in the spirit of this, and today’s full moon, Araena/Wind Woman is this week’s Goddess focus.

I invite you to take time with hope the related meditation below and open to the power of the currents of change within and around you.

Meditation from Araena/Wind Woman

Feel my sweeping currents

within and without,

(Change, there is always change)

echoing through your skin and bones,

cells and atoms,

electrons and nuclei,

(Change, there is always change)

reverberating through your mind, thoughts,

beliefs, expressions,

(Change, there is always change)

stinging your routines, actions, choices,

(Change, there is always change)

into different directions,

(Change, there is always change)

pushing you toward new territories, vast spaces,

(Change, there is always change)

waking you up to a limitless panorama of opportunity

(Change, there is always change)

that echoes through your skin and bones,

cells and atoms,

electrons and nuclei,

(Change, there is always change)

reverberates through your mind, thoughts,

beliefs, expressions,

(Change, there is always change)

and opens up your routines, actions, choices,

(Change, there is always change)

to your next evolution.

Change.

There is always change.

You are free to fly with it

or against.

Change.

There is always change.

You are free to discover its treasure.

Change.

There is always change.

You are free to delight in its newness.

Change.

There is always change.

You are free to revel in your ability to

change.

There is always change.

On Changes

Change is a-comin’, like it or not, that much is certain.

Several times I’ve perceived as a particular uninitiated change as negative only to discover later that it was actually a very helpful upgrade.

Still, there have of course been changes that I would have preferred to have gone another way, but that doesn’t mean they won’t eventually lead to positive experiences. And our personalities, (thank goodness!) just cannot control the Universe.

When I resist the changes, things only become more difficult. And I see this in the lives of others as well.

Like it or not, change is a-comin’; that much is certain.

Perhaps we can call upon Araena/Wind Woman to show us how to better ride along with it.

The Goddess can help us to be in better touch with the natural world and the cycles of things; to connect, cooperate and experience life in a more balanced manner.

In keeping with this, my “Goddess of the Week” post will be replaced by “Goddess for ( in this case) October’s Waxing Moon” and “Goddess for the month’s Waning Moon,” at the new and full moons respectively, also giving more time to contemplate and comment upon Her energies.

In the meantime, I wish you much grace and good harvest through all of your changes.

Waiting for Isis

Well, I think this week’s Goddess Message is quite fitting for me, as I wait to get sprung from my moon boot and other forms of compensating for my current restrictions in mobility. The fractured bone in my foot is at least 3/4 of the way healed, and should be complete in the next week!

In the meantime, I’ve become more comfortable physically, more productive, (in the typical sense of the word), and have started picturing myself doing some of the things I’ve been unable to for the past 5 weeks.

My world will be a bigger place in a week or so. And I am doing what I can to start that off, literally, on the right foot.

Question of the Week

How willing am I to support what is opening in me now, and what will support me in this process?

Goddess of the Week: Kali

Kali’s Contemplation’s Message
Shine Truth
lives in the whole
that I cut from the muck
of decay and stagnation
that clings to the Light.

Zsst . . .
My knife edge flashes.
Note the sizzle of change!

Going Public

Publishing my two books, Goddess Heart Rising and The Third Mary, is changing my life.

To bring some of the fruits of a 10-year process with Goddess energies, as well as the phenomenal messages I began receiving from Mary Magdalene’s mother last year, into fully-realized books is both deeply satisfying and an energizing catalyst.

After years of resisting social media, I pushed myself to get up to speed with both blogging and Facebook in a matter of days.

And, I’m thoroughly enjoying it!

Publishing the books has also prompted me to be more publicly visible than before, which is not always comfortable, but it is a good stretch.

Tomorrow evening will be the first time I get to speak to a group in person about what Goddess Heart Rising and The Third Mary have to offer.

As a teacher, workshop facilitator, channel, and occasional public speaker, I love the opportunity for inspiration to speak through me, and to connect with people in this way.

And I’m also a nervous/excited to communicate clearly about the books in a way that’s engaging and enhances people’s lives.

Yet I know that speaking to people’s souls, calling them forward on their own journeys, is really what I’m called to do, and that the books provide a really rich opportunity for me to do that.

So your positive vibes toward  tomorrow’s event is greatly appreciated! And if you’re in the Marquette area and can join me, even better!

Please feel free to comment below on changes going on in your life, and/or on what I’ve shared here.
