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.

 

The Dark & the Light for July

How perfect to draw Hecate and her discussion of the dark and the light for July’s Goddess reading, right on the eclipse! May the following assist you in navigating these interesting times!

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.

Solar Plexus Chakra

Absorb my golden power
of clarity, autonomy,
authority, and will.

Digest what empowers you
to shine your light
in this world.
Eliminate what does not.

Recognize your wholeness
and ability to commit
to the choices that uphold
the integrity of who you are
in tandem with respect for others
and their perspectives.

Allow your sovereignty
to hold your life
in balance, peace, and justice,
with the courage to assert
your own Divine nature.

Flowing with Our Transitions

guidance card, visionary art, Goddess imagery, Roslyn McGrath art, metaphysical support, spiritual guidanceWe are in a time of great change – culturally, politically, personally, on all the levels. Some we may find easier to navigate than others. Some we may not event realize are rocking our boat beyond our awareness, causing us to feel off-balance, unsure, irritable, and/or anxious without understanding why.

So it makes sense to me that I drew “Wings of the Goddess Sped Her Home” (Card #11) for us for the month from Creative Wisdom Cards for Personal Growth. 

I encourage you to take some time with the image, noting your own impressions of it and the significance these might have to you. Then feel free to draw upon the ideas below for additional guidance.

Wings of the Goddess  Sped Her Home

QUESTIONS TO EXPLORE

Are you listening to the quiet inside yourself? 

Are you willing to plumb the depths with grace and fortitude to learn about yourself? 

Do you know that many unseen hands are available to guide you into greater self-awareness?

 THE IMAGE SPEAKS

I guide souls through the waters of compassion to their Life Transition with gentleness, lightness and ease.  Many passages are undertaken before they see Earth’s daylight again.  The journey helps them recognize many layers of themselves and how these contributed to their Earthly experience.  I am grateful to have the opportunity to share this sacred time with them.

 SUGGESTIONS FOR GROWTH

Imagine you are listening to gentle waves lap the shore, and that you are drifting downward between them to an underwater world where you recognize many aspects of your being in symbolic form. 

As you tour this landscape, you fall more and more deeply in love with your own true self, and are more and more likely to allow old regrets and grudges to gently sift away. 

When you are ready to emerge into the fresh clean air, thank the many unknown beloveds that surround you for helping you through this process.

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:

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.

Below are some suggestions for applying these ideas to Empowering Lightworks’ products & services:

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.”*
