Fall Equinox ~ Tipping the Scales

libra-280152707_std

The scales are tipping, back and forth. All is being weighed, every thought, every feeling, every action – compassion or resentment, joy or sorrow, tipping the scales. There is an acute awareness of all coming to the surface. Parts of yourself that have been hidden are being forced up and out into the light. Mortality is staring you in the face as choices stand before you.

You are being pushed, prodded, uncovered and revealed. You feel uncomfortable and uncertain. You wish for a time of balance and simplicity but it is nowhere to be found. Your inner truth is all that matters, your truest self, in all it’s imperfections, all of you, all that has been pushed under, all that hides from the glaring light.

Just when you think you have gotten the hang of this balancing act after all the seeing and all the dreaming and all the revealing ….. it leads to this. There is no escape from the work to be done, no avoiding, no putting it off. We are in it. We are living through it. We are it. We are awake and aware and feeling it all. It can be brutal in it’s intensity.

Those of us with such sensitivity have come this far and yes found more of a balance, so not to be crushed by the weight of sorrows too unbearable to bear. We have come so far we can feel it. We are living it, more aware, more steady as we go, more sure, just enough that we seem to have kind of gotten the hang of it.

But the scales must still tip, back and forth, more sorrows, more joy, more awareness, more hidden. It is a game of mastery and we are the master players. We have gained strength and courage and wisdom. We have opened to see beyond the beyond. It is thrilling and daunting.

We can close our eyes when it becomes too much but they cannot stay closed for long. Our inner truth compels us to keep seeing, to keep believing, to keep traveling on, to face the new challenges with new eyes, no matter how tempting it is to see with the old ones.

We are warriors of truth. We are being called upon to take on incredibly difficult challenges. We are transmuting and transforming enormous unprecedented energies. We have made it this far.

Don’t give up.

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

Art Luděk Marold

My Enchanted Girl ~ for my daughter Kate

482600_10200399352898595_1818842035_n

my enchanted girl lives among the fairies
and my enchanted girl lives beneath the sea
at night the mermaids comb her hair
and the fairies beckon to her
they urge her never to forget
the wonders that she knows
so the fairies twirl and dance and sing
and the mermaids gently guide her
they sprinkle magic in her eyes
and whisper her true name
they only have one wish for her
that she will always know
that fairies dance behind her eyes
and mermaids kiss her lips
that she was crowned so long ago
the queen of sea and glen
yes my enchanted girl lives among the fairies
and my enchanted girl lives beneath the sea
and all who look upon her
may see within her eyes
the strength of ancient wisdom
and the light of the morning star
for she is blessed and known
throughout all space and time
for heaven shines upon her
enchanted girl of mine

As Women

susan sedon boulet

artist Susan Seddon Boulet

 

As women we bring forth a great vibration

we are one with the energy of the earth

and within us lies the radiance and power of the moon

the moon is our sister

she rises sweetly and when all is quiet

and bathes the world with a delicate and nurturing light

there are those of you who have awakened to her embrace

and connection to her

spend time with her

feel her energy resonate within you

draw her in with the breath

with complete intention 

there is much she will give you

as you acknowledge her

 

yes, we are the women of the moon and the sea

we are radiant and fluid

ever steady and ever moving

we are the mystery and the power

we are the wisdom of the ages 

we are here now to raise the consciousness of mankind

we turn with the tides and welcome the change

for we have waited long

and are bursting with truth and love 

we will grow in number

raising our voices

as they reach the heavens and shifts are created

from the sheer power of our feminine vibration 

 

come together and sing

for you will remember

the song of your birth

and you will remember your sisters

each and every one

 

the separation created by man

will no longer serve

as in unity

like so many who have come before

we glorify and sanctify

and bless ourselves and one another 

 

in the name of those who walked the earth

in the most holy divinity

we bow our heads and say

yes
