Goddess Wisdom for November, 2019

Goddess Art, Goddess Wisdom, Goddess Meditation, U.P. metaphysical, U.P. holistic practitioner, U.P. reader, visionary artBuoyancy ~ Freedom ~ Clarity ~ Expansiveness ~ Sweetness of Life

I won’t lie to you, this has not been the predominant note of my start to November. While I am committed to my current projects and choices, things have been bumpy, and at times quite frustrating of late, (I’d like to say Mercury Retrograde doesn’t impact me, but publishing a magazine, Health & Happiness, makes its effect abundantly clear to me), though interspersed with the shine of my spiritual practices and supportive, fun friendship. So I am thrilled to dive into the energy that Flower Deva shares with us.

If you’d like to do so also, here’s some additional support.

Meditation from Flower Deva

Breathe

into the sky.

Breathe

out to the sky.

Breathe

in more blue sky,

curling shoulders forward

‘round sky

curling

Shoulders ‘round back

toward sky.

 

Feel the sky in your lungs.

Feel the sky in your heart.

Feel the sky moving ‘round the world.

Through your breathe you’re doing your part

to weave yourself into its story.

to weave yourself into the world,

to carry its riches into your self,

to bring your riches into its furls.

 

So feel the sky in your belly.

Feel the sky in your throat.

Let its lightness lift you up

to concentrate on its coat

of living breathing color

of live breathing light,

of space so clear that far seems near,

and you can levitate into flight.

 

So breathe into your eyes now.

breathe into your womb.

Let thoughts delight

and dreams take flight

with elemental zoom.

 

Breathe into your ears.

Breathe into your toes.

Let chants of breeze

your heart do seize

to sweep aside all woes.

 

Breathe into your tail bone.

Breathe into your crown

‘til all’s aligned with Heaven’s time

and harmony abounds.

 

Breathe into all doorways

offered by your skin.

Carry their mark into all your parts

and revel in the space therein.

 

Breathe into your bounty.

Breathe into your love.

Breathe into the nectar

that’s created from above.

 

Breathe it into daytime.

Breathe it into night.

Breathe it into thoughts that sing

of joyous home delight.

 

Your wings stretch out forever.

Your wings are made of light

and thoughts that sing ‘til flowers ring

with your freedom gratitude flight.

Creative Wisdom Card for October 2019

Creative Wisdom Card, guidance card, visionary art

Copyright Roslyn McGrath.

Within each of us lie the answers we seek.

I invite you to take some time to contemplate the image here.

What stands out to you about it?

What else do you notice?

Continue to look at it. What else do you notice?

What relevance might what you’ve noticed have to your current life situation?

How else might it relate?

Are there other ways it might also be relevant for you?

Here are additional ideas that may be of value for you to reflect on also.

QUESTIONS TO EXPLORE

Have you observed the workings of nature, their perfect unfoldment of balance and growth?

Are you aware of such patterns at work in your own life?  Have you recognized the perfection with which the Universe mirrors back to you your own perceptions of Life?

THE IMAGE SPEAKS

I am one with my surroundings,

a witness to their beauty, reflecting my own. 

I penetrate understandings with the simplicity of my love as it ripples and flows through the world around me.  My gaze clarifies the gifts that await myself and all others.

SUGGESTIONS FOR GROWTH

All intricacies arise from core truth.  Allow yourself

to recognize emerging patterns of loss and discovery as part of the Love which unites all Creation.

From this vantage point you may absorb the Higher Truth behind the changing façade of temporal life.

Your Energy Movement, October 2019

As you move through your month, what does your heart tell you about this peak transitional time?

Though you and we collectively may be moving through challenging times (see my previous post on Persephone), we can “take heart,” to help us move through them more Grace-fully and effectively.

Through the heart, we can connect with all parts of ourselves, as well as with one another and the Universe. It knows more than our minds, and is more than our blood regulator and emotional reservoir. It lives Truth. 

When we tap into the heart, we find ourselves, one another, and all of Nature. 

When I brought through the information in Chakras Alive! Exploring and Expanding Your Inner Rainbow, my awareness of Heart’s centrality grew. 

Here’s an excerpt from what I received when I asked for better understanding of the heart chakra’s role:

I am the place where energies merge to support your Highest function. I am the balance, the fulcrum point, for your true nature to experience the blend of Heaven and Earth. I am the animating experience of Life, that which makes it valuable throughout and beyond all time and space. I am the vortex for re-creation of old habits, thoughts and beliefs, the potential dross of experience, into high achievements – the glory of true self-love, courage, forgiveness, release, Conditionless Love acknowledged and honored throughout Infinity.

I am the place where Earthly Life begins and ends; the place that monitors and reflects spiritual achievement, the only achievement that is eternal.

My experiences reverberate throughout all your earthly lifetimes and all forms of your existence. I am here to help you experience LOVE, the building block and uniting force of All-That-Is.

I am your closest connection to reality; the cornerstone of all that has worth. I have no limits, and I help you re-member your spiritual nature.

I serve your Highest Good by connecting you with the Heavenly Light, reinforcing your ability to know your connection with All-That-Is, and to shine!

I am thrilled to play this role in your life and support all your Life-liness!

I empower you to BE all of your High nature NOW and impart the wisdom of the Highest realms to support you in this.

I unleash energies that harmonize you with the Universe and Earthly Life simultaneously. I allow you to understand Life and all of its creations at deep, deep levels. I undergird all of your actions and choices with the capacity to hold more Light.

I am both Universal and personal. I accept all, connect all, and support all throughout your system, life, and beyond.

I am a catalyst for recognizing the human and Universal energy field. I am the portal for true connection and Oneness bliss. I am the home port of all Earthly existence. I am the support for your recognition of the Divine within and without.

I am your Love come home to roost, to receive, to extend to all others at one and the same time, because I live the law of “giving and receiving are one.”

I am your center energetically, emotionally, and spiritually; the giver and receiver of Love. I process unpleasant emotions as well, and the knowledge of your Heart Wisdom.
I provoke continual amazement from the centers for off-world planning, as they contemplate your spiritual exploits and achievements.

I know no limits, no boundaries, to the Love that All ultimately is, and I am rescued by your willingness to be guided by my wealth of knowing.

I am lavishly supportive of Life.

Goddess Heart Rising for October 2019

Tenacity, Journey through the Underworld, Regeneration.  Image & text copyright Roslyn McGrath.

No wonder I’ve drawn Persephone from my Goddess Heart Rising Cards for October! The weather has become decidedly autumnal here, and our political trek through the Underworld is undeniably in process.

In these times, our inner work becomes particularly crucial. Persephone reminds us that everything has its season, and that with tenacity and inner reflection, we can make the most of that and come out the other side into regeneration.

I invite you to look within. What patterns do you desire to shift in yourself? If this focus is distracted by your passionate resistance to some form of turmoil in the world, what values is this showing you hold dear, and how can you more fully embody these values in your thoughts, words, and deeds?

I’ll be posting more related to Persephone throughout the month of October. And if you’d like me to support you in your inner trek and re-patterning through a remote or in-person 1:1 Body-Mind-Soul session, please know that I would be honored to do so, and  feel welcome to contact me.

Namaste & many blessings,

Roslyn Elena McGrath

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.

 

Grandmother of the 13 Moons for June

Grandmother of the 13 Moons
Copyright Roslyn McGrath. All rights reserved.

I’ve decided to draw a Goddess from my Goddess Heart Wisdom series for guidance for  each month and synchronistically,  I drew the same one that a lovely lady I met yesterday declared as her favorite – Grandmother of the 13 Moons!

Though I felt her presence early on, Grandmother of the 13 Moons was the last of the Goddesses I’ve painted that is included in Goddess Heart Dancing: A Self-Guided Pathway to Light through Imagery, Insights & Inspiration, and Goddess Heart Dancing Cards. She was begun on the Super Moon weekend of December, 2017, and completed on the 13th of the same month.

Her title was originally Grandmother Moon. Then I counted how many moons she was made of (not all of which are visible here), plus the two others depicted. Can you guess the total?

Grandmother of the 13 Moons’ Message

I am ageless tides revealing
stories of past/present/future.
I am rippling enigmas saturating
your Universe with my reflections.
I am calling forth the alchemy
through which you may recognize
your primary power of vocation
by electing yourself ready, willing, able.
I am ever-present yet only visible
when you are willing to experience
the darkness within the Light.
I am the Keeper of Souls’ Journeys
through Density to Core Unification.
I am Conqueror of Cold, Hard Edges
through my Rounded, Reflective Light.
I am Magic’s Destiny revealed.
I am offering you opportunities
to witness reality through renewed light,
a way to utilize your dreams, instincts, and passions
to create your vivid present more potently.
I am asking you to let go of old dogmas
and feel your primal flow.

I am aware of every tipping point that occurs
between so-called fantasy and so-called reality,
I am available to all who desire me.
I am part of who you truly are.

Creative Wisdom for May

In response to the challenges in the world, and the busy-ness that can overtake my own life, I am starting a new practice – pulling one of my Creative Wisdom Cards at mid-month to share its guidance with us.

Here’s what I pulled for May:

guidance cards, Upper Peninsula holistic practitioner, metaphysical U.P.

QUESTIONS TO EXPLORE

Are you forgetting the Infinite Nature of your Soul?

Trying to alter human events in such a way that only Illusion is mirrored back to you?

Are you willing to look beyond surface chaos to the core nature of the Universe?

THE IMAGE SPEAKS

Blow!  Blow right into me!  Can you see that all the world is chaos?  

That chaos has great beauty as it approaches the fractal line of consciousness?  

When all the shifting surfaces are viewed simultaneously, it can appear quite a quagmire.  But refract them even further and they will take you past the mirrors of Illusion into Timelessness.

SUGGESTIONS FOR GROWTH

Allow all the thoughts in your mind to swirl more loudly, growing and merging, merging and growing,

‘til there is no room left and their cacophony shatters,

leaving only peace.

The World is full of illusions—illusions of self, others,

petty grievances and other distortions of Truth.

When you break free from their spell, you live in harmony,

trust and love, engaging others with the truth of your awareness.

Bringing Whole-i-ness to Your Holiday Shopping

Sometimes the peace and loving connection we may desire to experience at the holidays can seem lost in the preparations for it. Our ways of seeking to make it a special time for those close to us may take us out of our center. Taking some deep, mindful breaths can go a long way to helping us return to a more grounded, centered place from which to take action, perhaps reconsidering the methods for achieving our goal.

When it comes to gift-giving, typically there are some we find it harder to try to satisfy than others. It may help to do your best to start from the viewpoint of your gift recipient – what makes her or him tick? What does he or she value and enjoy? Choose something that will have lasting significance! And allow your own intuitive side to help guide you.

The Spotlight of Mary Magdalene this Feast Day

Mary Magdalene in "Post: Resurrection: The Family of Mary Magdalene" by Roslyn McGrathToday is Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day. Her very clear, forthright, wise energy guided the creation of  my book Post-Resurrection: The Family of Mary Magdalene, which includes a Questions and Answers section. I look forward to discovering what else is revealed as this process continues at August’s 3rd Monday Channeling of the Holy Family.

Here’s an excerpt from her introduction to Post-Resurrection:

“I am magnifying my spotlight now upon all aspects that require illumination and clean-up. Do not worry over how sordid this may appear at times. Re-member who you are, a Divine facet of Source/God, our Creator, and know that you are well-supported in all that may require effort, so long as you truly commit to it.”*
