Thinking About Hecate & Our Choices

I see so much coming up individually and globally in Hecate’s arena. The shadows are being brought to light for us to deal with more universally than perhaps ever before, pushing us to get clear on our values and act on them.

One form this has taken for me is to revamp the framework of my publishing business, moving it into new territory that makes it both easier and mandatory for clients to honor their part of our agreement. And it calls on me to shine a brighter, clearer spotlight on their businesses’ missions, and understand my publishing work as an integral part of Empowering Lightworks’ mission.

The process has pushed me to learn new skills, and rethink old processes so I can bring my vision to life through cyberspace and grow it in a balanced way. At moments, it’s bolloxed my brain, but each accomplishment has been super-satisfying.

And new opportunities to clear up old issues continue to arise. With commitment to using the quantum healing methods available, I and we can do it.

Hecate’s introduction of herself:

I am replete with secrets, potions, incantations to set free the dark that clouds your Inner Light. My illusions encourage you to clarify your values, expectations, and willingness to move forward with integrity to your True Design, as I smile upon all your attempts to distract yourself from your purpose and inner knowing. My sleight-of-hand reveals your own illusory attempts to mask your true nature.

I am capable of working in tandem with your Higher Self to right wrongs and balance the Scales of Justice, if you so desire. I am the Embodiment of Trickery for the Highest Good, Revelation through Opposites, and Getting to the Core of Essential Values.

Meditation from Hecate

It may be helpful to bring yourself into a relaxed, meditative state before reading the following, perhaps by simply observing your breath for several counts, then breathing gently into one part of your body at a time, helping each to relax, or using another meditative process of your choice.

Then slowly read to yourself the passage below, or have someone else read it to you, as you continue to maintain and deepen your relaxed, focused, attention.

Listen
to the dark places
underneath the roots,
below the incantations,
within the furls of your heart.
They have stories to tell,
spells to cast
for learning about the totality of the world,
the finessing from dark to light,
the fertile opportunities for growth.

Listen within
for the keys to those dark places.
Let your light reveal their location.
It’s a partnership in courage and honesty.

Listen inside
to the rumbling
within the dark places.
Let them show their faces.
Let them rise up to the surface
and expel their glories.
Find the truth in their stories,
their secrets, their lies.
Bring it all to bond
with incredible sighs
of love, and of trust,
of two-fisted fuss.

Listen to the sounds
of the dark getting free
of the shame and the lust
that kept it chained up
where it battled and rattled
unseen.

Now is the time to shake loose all its grime
and discover what its fertilizer raises up.
Feel the earth shake.
Feel yourself break loose the bonds
that hid your stains,
stabbed from within,
brought you pain.
Raise your hurts up to feel the light,
dissolve their strength,
divest their fight
so you can look them in the face,
glean their great potential,
banish their grim façade
without leaving a trace,
opening up vast space within
to accept all as it is,
and reveal to yourself
your sunshine-y grin.
