Goddesses & Chakras – Oh My!

Well, speaking of the “winds of change,” it’s been awhile since I’ve posted here! I’ve been busy preparing a new book, Chakras Alive! And the proof has just arrived!

Chakras Alive! is a personal guide with many points of entry to new worlds of possibility for personal healing and evolution, with original art, poetry, channeling, meditations, energetic healing and additional support methods for activating your 7 main chakras plus your Earth Star and Wholeness chakras.

You can stay up-to-date on its upcoming Spring 2015 release and related events by following www.EmpoweringLightworks.com.

I will be busy at work with final adjustments to it and getting input from my proofreader.

In the meantime, I invite you to take a moment and just notice:

  • How does your body feel right now? Your mind?  Emotions?
  • Would you like to experience more flow and balance with them?

Chakra healing and balancing can assist you with this. For now, you might also enjoy benefiting from the Meditation from Lakshmi. Just click here to listen.

The Choice to Clear: Self-Reflection Question for the Week

Kali’s Contemplation, copyright Roslyn McGrath

How do you decide when to clear something out of your life?

Whether it’s a habit, relationship, old papers or interpersonal dynamic, we all reach a place where we’re called to clear out things that no longer serve us.

How do you muster the effort it takes to make such changse?

If you are looking for spiritual support for this necessity, I highly recommend calling upon the powerful energy of Hindu goddess Kali.

(Click here for a short excerpt from Kali’s Meditation in Goddess Heart Rising.)

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?

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?

Mo-Ray Angelica: Questions to Consider

Mo-Ray Angelica, from KG

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?

Where Is Peace?

"Mary of the Miracles," copyright Roslyn McGrath

“Mary of the Miracles,” copyright Roslyn McGrath

I really appreciate Mary of the Miracles’ description of peace as something already within us. Often we can try to look outside ourselves for peace, i.e. if x would just happen, or y would stop happening, then I could be at peace. 

But if it’s already within us, perhaps what we most need to do is withdraw our focus from the external situation and go within to meet that place where it already exists.

There are so many techniques for reaching a state of peace, and certainly there can be issues to take care of in our lives and psyches so they can better reflect this quality. But I think the more often we choose to go within to meet that part of ourselves, the more capable we become of taking those external actions.
