Divine Feminine Fire of Truth

199f975452607.56022caf099d3.jpg

breathe in your true spiritual nature
breathe in the power and majesty
of this sacred energy

breathe out all that has prevented you
from fully remembering
the origin of your magnificent divinity

breathe in the memory of love
breathe in the memory of truth
breathe in the energy
of the infinite circle of life
the cosmic flow
the power of creation

breathe out every word, every thought
and every experience
that has drawn you back
that has kept you hidden

the time has come to rekindle
the divine feminine circle
of love, knowledge and truth
the time is at hand
and the power of this energy
shall ignite the spark and rekindle the flame

with each breath in
breathe the fire igniting your soul
illuminating your truth
see the fire as it burns through the ages
burning away all that does not serve

see now before you your sacred agreement
written upon the pages of old
breathe in the truth
every word and every feeling
consecrate your heart and illuminate your soul
feel the freedom as the truth is revealed

breathe in the freedom
born of love
breathe in the sacred
born of truth

see the divine feminine
rise from the shadows
emerging victorious
in the heart of the sun

A Summer Solstice Story – Part Two – Heaven Sent

To catch up on this ongoing story please see A Summer Solstice Story https://gailheartoflove.wordpress.com/2017/06/23/a-summer-solstice-story/

This is how the day started today.

After what happened at the Summer Solstice Ceremony with the circle of birds over me this picture was the first thing I saw this morning and really this is what it felt like.

I always say when someone you love passes all the other deaths come marching forward and all the grief you have ever felt merges with the newest loss. That is the way it always is for me anyway. I don’t know how I could get through any of this without the magic.

I just found a picture I have never seen in my life. I burst into tears at the sight of it. My memory is not great so I showed it to my husband who remembers everything. He said “I have never seen this picture before.” Now I cried even harder.

There he is, our Billy, the one who lost his life in Viet Nam. There he is smiling at me in a picture we have no idea where it came from. And in no uncertain terms, all these years later, he is telling me for the second time, from beyond the veil “I was there to greet her.”

I knew this and even though I knew this and had seen it and the etching from the Viet Nam wall confirmed it – Billy’s picture arrived today straight from Heaven.

As I am writing this my husband comes in and looks out the window and tells me to look and there is the most beautiful red tailed hawk sitting on our fence. This is the first time we have seen a hawk sitting on our fence and she/he comes right in the middle of this story.

Hawk spirit animals belong to the realm of bird medicine. It carries the symbolism that comes with the ability to fly and reach the skies.”
 Hawks are the protectors and visionaries of the Air. They hold the key to higher levels of consciousness. This power animal enables us to awaken vision and inspires a creative life purpose. Having Hawk as power animal means your life will be filled with responsibility, because Hawk people seek the overall view. You will most probably be aware of omens and spirit messages.

A Red tailed Hawk is special. It will ALWAYS be with you, for life. It has direct ties to the Kundalini, the seat of primal life force. It is linked to the base chakra. If you have this power animal, you need to be aware of and work toward fulfilling your soul’s destiny. It reflects far greater intensity of energy within your life: physically, emotionally and mentally. Spiritual forces will be felt strong within you.

One trait all hawks share, is the ability to move between the seen and unseen realms gracefully, joining both worlds together. Their acute vision attributes this ability, their discriminating nature keeps them out of dangers path. Hawks have a broad vision, allowing them to see what the future holds. In man this is a symbol of prophetic insight.

“In ancient Egypt, the hawk was considered a royal bird and a symbol of the soul (ba). Isis is said to have shape shifted into a Hawk to save Osiris. Horus also carried Hawk medicine which allowed him to see the “unseeable”.

And so as I have spent this day remembering all the happy days we spent together, my tears of grief and gratitude flow, for the birds and Heaven, for Billy and Kathy and Sally and Emma, all my darling childhood friends who are no longer here.  They speak to me in magical ways from wherever they are. I know that Kathy now rests in the arms of the angels. She is reunited with all her beloveds and one day soon I will hear from her too.

I love you all so.

Goddess Rising

Luděk Marold Allegory with a Woman

I rise
and lift the cloak of darkness
the black shroud meant to keep me
from seeing and remembering
and as I breathe my crown of remembrance
Illuminates and shines
and in my right hand
the spear of hope and strength is lifted
as my feet stand firmly planted on the moon of my intention
Divine Feminine blessings pour out of my mouth
great wisdom and long forgotten truths
stream from my fingertips
and the love that has been lost for so long
pours out of my heart
and showers upon the land and her people

Belief

Shelley Sage Heart

Shelley Sage Heart

If I told you this story would you believe it?

Could you believe the time of an ancient wound has come again?

Would you believe the visions and the confirmations?

Would you allow yourself to dive deep into the archetypal wound?

Would you understand that believing is half the battle

And truth is the only answer no matter how far you must go?

These are the times of great transformation.

This is the time of the great remembering.

The crucible of love is carried forth in your hearts.  The pain and sorrow of past injustices are being transformed through each loving word and deed.  As the past merges with the present, physical and emotional bodies respond.  There is so much that you carry, so much you transform. 

The conscious awareness of your soul’s purpose, the knowledge that you have come again to aid in this most transforming time magnifies the outcome of each mission.  As past injustices merge with present injustices you respond with an awakening, an awakening of remembrance of all that has gone before and all that feels familiar in your lives and your world of today.

And as you perceive and awaken, and as a betrayal or injustice today brings back those of times past, you feel, you weep, you cry out, and you may fall.  Then the power within rises, the feminine power of love, the feminine power of strength, the alchemical magic awakens and rises with a power and strength stronger than the past, more powerful than a memory or injustice of today. 

And as the power rises within, and as you feel, acknowledge and respond, you choose the path of the spiritual warrior with a feminine strength present throughout the ages.  For you are bearers of truth and soldiers of freedom.  And through your awareness so vigilant and so true, through each conscious kindness, each voice raised in truth, you transform one by one, a hardened heart or bitter injustice.  Yes the task is mighty and the road long, and you have walked this path again and again but I ask you now to feel in your heart, the power of love and the root of forgiveness.  For only these shall usher in the New World, only these shall move you into the fullness of your true spiritual nature. 

Walk the path with your head held high feeling and knowing your power and strength.  Know that battles once fought for truth and for freedom carry you forth in this time and this place.  Feel the protection of your spiritual armor, carry the sword of truth and enlightenment.  Work your alchemical magic as you transform and transcend all worldly concerns.  Bring forth the balance of masculine and feminine, the strength of the armor and the beauty of love.   

Know,  that which you endure and overcome shall strengthen you…. and that which you forgive shall free you.
