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.

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.

Araena/Wind Woman’s Message

I am Araena,
Goddess of Wind.
swift, pure, eternal.
I sweep up.
I sweep out.
I clear the space
of which I am a part.
I see the storms
and caresses of Life
and tend them with my wave.

I am weightless force,
altering all I contact
with my whish-full ways.
I contribute mightily
to the healing of all,
uncovering, recovering, discovering,
what lies in wait.

Play pipes to my tune
and you will find
adventure unending.

Lakshmi, Goddess of the Week

Cool blades of grass tickle your feet.

Sunlight bathes your face in gold.

Soft breezes rustle against your skin.

Clear water trickles from a nearby stream

as you sit upon fertile earth.

 

 

Your flesh and bone belong here.

Your needs are always met.

Life carries you from one stage of fulfillment to the next,

always bringing more wealth, always allowing more growth,

always insisting upon the beauty of earthly change

always inviting you to give and receive with harmony.

Aphrodite, Goddess of the Week

What synchronicity! Each week, I center myself, close my eyes, and open to a page in Goddess Heart Rising to discover which will be the Goddess of the Week, and which excerpt to share. And of course, I open to Aphrodite today, as co-facilitator Joy Regina Melchezidek and I prepare to share “Aphrodite Answers – Your Soul’s Beauty Revealed” in six days!

Aphrodite is truly present with us and wanting to be known.

Below is the excerpt I opened to today, the last stanza of her meditation.

Aphrodite EmergesTake hold of the clam shell beneath you.
Listen to its call of the water.
Bask in the gift of physical life and connection.
Know you are a gorgeous part
of the radiance of All That Is,
as you float toward the shore,
curl your feet in the sand
and sally forth into the sun-warmed air,
light dancing on the drops
that cling to your newborn skin,
light dancing in your heart
that sings the glory of you and the Universe,
light dancing in the world
that celebrates your being,
as you embrace the earthly joys
of love and loving on Earth.

More on Modern Day Kuan Yin, Goddess of the Week

"Modern Day Kuan Yin," copyright Roslyn McGrath

“Modern Day Kuan Yin,” copyright Roslyn McGrath

Kuan Yin, known as the Chinese Goddess of Compassion or “She Who Hears the Cries of the World,” has played a major role in my spiritual awakening and personal healing, and is a constant presence in my healing work with others. She is known for helping to bring about “everyday miracles,” rather than the “out-of-the-blue” kind, and is typically depicted with much flowing grace and softness.

 
In painting Kuan Yin’s image, I used lots of glazing medium relative to the actual amount of paint, another new experience for me. The semi-transparent layers of color create a pearly, inner glow, matching my experience of her energy.

 
Because her image is clearly not Oriental, and with our present-day cultures becoming more and more of a melting pot, she’s entitled Modern Day Kuan Yin. She hangs in the healing room of my home, where clients often remark on her comforting, gentle presence.
