Pick a Goddess Resource for the New Year

Happy 2015 to everyone!

In the almost-blank canvas of this new year, I wonder what hopes, dreams, visions and heartfelt commitments you’ll be bringing to it, and what will best support you in actualizing them?

About half of the 30 Goddess paintings I’ve created so far are included in this first volume of Goddess Heart Rising, each with their particular strengths available for us to draw upon and honor in ourselves.

Which of these would be most helpful to you at this time in moving your desires forward? Which speaks most strongly to your soul right now?

  • Mystery, Openness & Adaptability (Her Masks)
  • Nurturance, Compassion & Everyday Miracles (Modern Day Kuan Yin)
  • Clearing, Cutting to the Chase & Core Truths (Kali’s Contemplation)
  • Sensuality, Earthly Love  Self-Love (Aphrodite Emerges)
  • Prosperity & Fertility (Lakshmi)
  • Dreams & Inner Visions (Cereidwen)
  • Perseverance & Regeneration (Persephone)
  • Preparation for Rebirth (Waiting for Isis)
  • Death & Rebirth (Isis)
  • Unconditional Love & Peace (Mary of the Miracles)
  • Individuality, Discernment & Primal Nature (Lady Eve)
  • Freedom, Fun & Joy  (Dance Muse)
  • Change (Araena/Wind Woman)
  • Wisdom & Evolution (Ngoshkwe/Star Woman)
  • Truth & Self-Empowerment (Mo-Ray Angelica)

Please share 1 – 3 in the comments section below, as I would be honored to share excerpts and ideas in this blog to support you in the upcoming months.

Namaste & many blessings,

Roslyn Elena McGrath

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.

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?

Modern Day Kuan Yin’s Message
I see you,
inside and out.
I am with you
after the fall.
I know you
from before you knew yourself.
I heal you
because I can sustain my knowing
of your “good” and “evil.”
I can help you heal yourself
by understanding what you are experiencing,
by understanding who you are,
by knowing what you’re capable of,
which would astound you if you knew.

I am always available to you.
I am always caring for you.
I am always loving you and helping you
recognize how to love yourself and all others more
through my doorway of total nurturance and compassion
that helps you weave your Life Stream
with greater Grace and Harmony with All.

More from Lady Eve

Lady Eve, copyright 2013, Roslyn McGrath

In every situation, there is a fulcrum point, a transitional balance achieved when there is true agreement between the natures of apparent opposites to hang with the meeting place between them

and allow a new creation to arise from their meld, a mix beyond figuring out or conscious development,

that follows the credo of Life to expand with unique fullness and live out a new pathway.

Eve’s Story Reconsidered: Questions for the Week

Lady Eve, copyright 2013, Roslyn McGrath

Lady Eve, copyright 2013, Roslyn McGrath

What does it mean to embody full knowing?

What might Lady’s Eve’s example have to do with this?

We have the capacity to be lulled into a kind of cultural hypnosis, automatically accepting ideas and underlying assumptions without question.

We also have the capacity to wake up, to wonder, to reconsider our options, and the possibilities of the world.

There are more versions of Eve’s story available to us now.

What do you think her purpose was, is?

What can we learn from her story?

What opportunities might it open for us?

What illusions might it shatter?

Lady Eve’s Message

Sanctify your thoughts
with my snakes,
undulating with strong,
uncoiling options for redemption
through ancient, awakening abilities.

I am for securing your right
to embody full knowing
on this plane of existence
so that you may find your befitting place
within the scheme of Creation.

I trust your capacity to delve into taboo-lands
and reinstate truthful order through wholeness.
All worlds arrive at your fingertips
to present their options for growth.
You handle these potentials well,
shedding old ways
to enable new methods of evolution.

I am a progenitor of faith
in the resolution of human discord.
You descend through my line
to refine this purpose.

Mo-Ray Angelica, copyright 2014

Each section of Goddess Heart Rising contains self-reflection questions based on the themes shared by each of the Goddess energies portrayed.

A couple to contemplate from Mo-Ray Angelica’s section are:

  • What truths am I exploring in my life right now?
  • What truths am I being called to share with others?
