Here is the Creative Wisdom Card I drew for us for April, with ideas to consider below. May your interaction with it support you through our current challenges!

Namaste & many blessings,

Roslyn Elena McGrath

QUESTIONS TO EXPLORE

Are you troubled by the gap you perceive between your Truth and your actions?  Are you willing to view it through the eyes of compassion?  Are you willing to move toward lessening this gap?

THE IMAGE SPEAKS

I see the Within-Without, the internal and external simultaneously.  Often there’s a mismatch between true desires and their ultimate expression.  Although humanity has much conflict, I see it differently, because I know the train exists between head and heart, and that all are propelled toward this alignment.  It is this need that calls them forward on their path.  Pure congruency is the carrot motivating their evolution, thus making their “mismatches” a potent  tool for progress.  I have great compassion for them, knowing intimately the trials they face on this journey.

SUGGESTIONS FOR GROWTH

Allow yourself to rest in the knowing that even conflict and chaos are an integral part of Divine Order, as the Universe employs all of Creation in the service of evolution.  Whenever you find yourself judging your own actions, or those of others, say a short prayer of forgiveness, knowing that all is well, ultimately.  Then move gently in the direction of greater wholeness and congruity.  Allow my perception to guide you.

Your Energy Movement for April 2020

My sense is that when challenges arise, we need to rise up – raise our vibration, connect more deeply within to our guidance and spirit.

Perhaps this is why I drew this Chakra Activation Card for our April. Your 20th Chakra helps you to meld your individual cognition with the qualities of Divine Mind.

This energy portal is located approximately 12” above your Crown Chakra. You can support this aspect of yourself through:

– Ongoing spiritual meditation practice

– Calling upon the High Masters for this purpose

– Entrainment of your ego to this purpose

– Ongoing spiritual evolution

– Focusing on and/or surrounding yourself with white-gold-violet

– Balance and development of your Third Eye, Crown, Wholeness, and Collective Higher Awareness Chakras.

– Crystals – colorless spinel, azurite, quartz with nephrite, pink tourmaline and linenite

– Meditating on the 20th Chakra Activator image

I am blessed to have a weekly silent meditation group that has shifted to daily, debriefing by phone together afterward. It’s been getting my day off to a wonderfully high-vibe start.

There is so much beautiful, positive energy we can access to support ourselves and one another through these times! This has guided me to facilitate Your Healing Half-Hour on Wednesdays throughout April.

You can access this remotely by donation, with 50% of net proceeds going to local, national, and international COVID-19 relief efforts.

I hope you will join me in this opportunity for personal and worldwide healing.

Namaste & many blessings,

Roslyn Elena McGrath

Okay people–I scheduled this post a bit in advance, having no idea consciously just how applicable this would be. May it be a Divine catalyst for you in these powerful times!

Apparent chaos brings us new opportunities for creating what we truly desire. Here is some support from my new Chakra Activation Cards.

14th/Co-Creating from the Void Chakra: Helps you to manifest what best suits the Higher needs of the self and world from a level closer to Source. This may potentially include experiences, techniques, and/or three-dimensional creations that are truly new to the Universe. This energy portal is located approximately 6” in front of your Sacral Chakra.

May be supported through:

  • “I AM” statements made from a deep state of altered consciousness, before sleep, and/or when first beginning to awaken.
  • Connecting with a sense of Divine order rather than attempting to control situations through personal will
  • Focusing on and/or surrounding oneself with the color copper
  • Balance and development of your Sacral Chakra
  • Crystal – Beta Quartz
  • Meditating on the 14th Chakra Activator image

Goddess Wisdom for March 2020

“Her Masks” copyright R. McGrath

What roles do you play in your life’s drama? 

How do you disguise what you do not want revealed? 

In what ways does this help and/or hinder you?

Here is a meditation to support you with this topic.

Meditation from Her Masks

Allow yourself to
drop
your inhibitions, to let
down
your guard
and begin to witness the swirl of categories
with which you have identified yourself –
wife, mother, sister, daughter, diva, crone.
You can choose which façade to display
and when to allow them all to go,
so you can recognize your core,
your essence beneath.

When the winds drop self-examination into your lap,
let their flow astound you with their peeling away
of layers of stories, crustations of masks,
that have allowed you to view yourself
as something other than what you came here as,
the Living Essence of God/Goddess.

Once you glimpse even a portion of this,
you are forever aware that you are more
than any outward appearance
or self-appointed role you’ve attained,
more than any category or “box,”
more than any achievement
or self-proclaimed value you have occupied.

You are living, breathing light,
allowing forms and formulas to evaporate
into the mist that remains apparent
only to those who believe in Illusion.
For you are beyond all Earthly experiences and expectations,
you are Divine Essence, come to live in Union,
Truth, and Harmony with All Creation.
And you are available for exploring your essence now.

Be with your Living Breath of Light.
Pour your thoughts and expressions out to it.
Fulfill yourself by drinking in the Divine Mystery
of Your Essential Nature,
beyond language,
beyond thought
and beyond all expectation,
to Core Reality.

And so it is.
Amen.

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.

Your Energy Movement for February, 2020

1st/Root Chakra Activation Card, copyright 2020, R. McGrath

A strong foundation is vital for building what we desire, so working with the root of things is always powerful.

Root Chakra Speaks

I am your source of connection to PHYSICAL EXISTENCE! You can’t do without me, and any decrease in my movement of energy will be experienced by you as decreased health, lowered vibrancy, difficulty managing outcomes in your life and/or lack of prosperity. Your will to live affects the intensity level of my power. I am required for you to receive physical sustenance and desired outcomes in life/RESULTS!!!!!

When you are fully engaged with me, allowing my vortex to flow fully, you experience increased health. You are more solid, mentally and physically. You are more capable of making the changes you desire, and you are more likely to receive the impact of your choices in a beneficial way.

I am coming to your awareness more clearly so that you may cultivate our relationship more deliberately, and for the Higher Good. Take care with your body. Trust Earth to support you. Feel the ground. Drink in your sustenance. Eat. Sleep. Exercise. Don’t overwhelm yourself with ideas and activities. Take care of your feet and all of your body. I am requesting you to know that the physical world is a gift, not something of which to be afraid.

You are capable of much more than you currently can conceive.

Ground into physicality more thoroughly and you will create the foundation required for more of EVERYTHING that you desire and feats beyond your current dreams.

Isolate not from your tribes of origin. This includes your soul groups too. All were chosen by you to assist you in creating your next steps forward, whether you believe your fellow members to be helpful or not. You cannot deny your inheritances without giving up aspects of WHO YOU ARE, so acknowledge them, honor them as the ingredients for new creations that they are, as they meld through the alchemy of who you choose to become. YOU are Creation’s next step forward, springing forth from all that has come forth before you.

You are the acknowledgment of Creation’s capacity for growth and evolution. You are the portal through which new solutions to seemingly insoluble dilemmas may arise. You are an amalgamation for all that came before you, designed to enlighten some part of existence so that all may move forward more harmoniously together.

You are ALIVE, and that means you are REAL hence, so are all your dreams and potentials. So move forward with the knowing that your body is the vehicle for making choices that establish roots of sustenance for all the Universe, and all is well.

#31 Structural Play

QUESTIONS TO EXPLORE

Are you aware of the role your free will plays in shaping the Universe?  Do you recognize the myriad of potentials existing in each moment?  Are you willing to use your awareness to rethink your present-day choices?

THE IMAGE SPEAKS

Weaving throughout time and space, I support the Creation of reality by providing a framework for its endless variety.  I stretch and bend this undergirding according to the direction of group consciousness.  Collaborative free will literally shapes your reality, and I oversee the foundation for its structure.

SUGGESTIONS FOR GROWTH

Wonder more often   Imagine new possibilities.  Consider new choices.  Experience the magnitude of your ability to co-create with all the Universe.  Explore limitlessness.  From this vantage point, all reality is accessible and malleable.  Use it playfully and watch its magnificence unfold.

The time for playing small is over. We are part of the vast universe which is calling upon us to become more conscious masters of our luminous energy bodies and more deliberate co-creators of the New Earth.

This has led me to explore the world of our upper chakras, and to share my discoveries. This past weekend, I taught Chakra Radiance – Illuminating Your 22-Chakra System for the first time. To help anchor attendees’ awareness, I created  a variety of supporting items, including a set of Chakra Activation Cards, from which I drew the card shown above as a guide for us for this month.

Your Galactic Consciousness Chakra is an “upper octave” of your Third Eye Chakra and is approximately twelve inches in front of it, 1 – 2 inches above your eyebrows and in line with the center of your forehead.  From a very grounded and centered state, you might meditate upon this image with the intention to perceive and collaborate with the larger universe.

Because we are an integral part of All-That-Is, we have an inborn capacity to connect with all of it, and indeed, are always interacting energetically with all. By grounding ourselves deeply and opening our higher centers, we can become more conscious of this vastness in a palpable, more specific way, enlightening our ways of living.

I invite you to explore this territory in a balanced way, and to share your discoveries here!

Many blessings to you,

Roslyn Elena McGrath

Goddess Wisdom for January, 2020

A new year and new decade spread before us! In honor of this, here is Rainbow Woman’s meditation:

Inside you shimmers a pathway
arced across the sky.
Step up onto this bridge of color.
Immerse yourself in every hue
to reach the promise
of your wholly realized self.

When you have a problem,
you can bridge to solution
once you find this pathway
between Earth and Sky.
Feel your hands in the yellow.
Feel your hips in the orange.
Feel your mind growing mellow
as you cross the vast sky.
Green beckons you lightly.
You step right into it.
It feeds your heart
and cleans your mind.
As you move into aqua ever so briefly,
feel its fluidity sparkle and shine.
Feel the blue flowing all the way through you.
Clear space is growing throughout all your cells.
Move into indigo. Rest in its knowing,
deeper and deeper, developed in your wells.
Wise sight is blinking as you move into violet,
the harmonizing of your red with your blue
into a new state of being so true.
Breathe into its radiant world.
Breathe it through every layer of you.
Breathe it into your core of protection
and breathe out its support
all the way around you.

From within this beautiful bubble,
you can experience a shining world.
From this place removed from trouble,
you step into crimson beckoning you.
Breathe its octave from magenta to geranium
fully, completely, all the way through.
Every tint of red is flowing,
strengthening,
enlivening you.

Stride your way into brilliant orange,
gleaming inside and all around.
Breathe into its vital glow,
and breathe it out into all you know.

Step now into the field of yellow,
golden sunshine warming you.
Breathe it into all your being
and breathe it out
through your ways of being.
All of its colors are winding through you.

Submerge yourself into the green now,
spring-new to emerald, and forest true.
Breathe its nourishment
to the center of each cell,
and breathe its nourishment back
to the world you love so well,
as it leads you to step gently
into blue of water and sky,
with each of their tints
drawing nigh.

So breathe this spacious sweetness
into your full completeness,
and breathe its freedom out
to liberate all about
as you move into the enveloping night-sky blue,
the velvety revelation of your indigo knowing.

Breathe this velvet in
to your atoms’ very spin,
and breathe this velvet out
to the deep world all about
that yields specifically to you
its original, mystery view.

Stroll now into purple, plum, violet,
wine, cranberry creation.
Soak in their libation.
Breathe the purple through,
further vitalizing the full you,
as you breathe it out like a funnel,
through which you slide like a tunnel,
tumbling gently out onto green grass.
You are the rainbow now, at last,
as you move into the life
your consciousness has cast.

A Message of Light for Our Holy-Days from Judas Iscariot

 

Post-Resurrection: The Family of Mary Magdalene, retelling of Biblical times, secrets of Biblical times, Marquette MI spiritual channel, Marquette MI spiritual author, Marquette MI spiritual channel

As we enter this post-Solstice time of returning light in which many will celebrate the birth of Jesus, many of us also seek to bring our best forth into this new time. Below is a message from Judas Iscariot, a soul of great love and honor, to support you.

“Look unto your own heart. Breathe into what is worthwhile. . . . Enjoy your ability to communicate your Light more fully. Resound with the Word of Our Source, Our Creator, in Oneness with the Holiness of All-That-Is and you will re-member your true self and all will be revealed to you. You will have the “eyes” to “see it” and the “ears” to “hear it” and your knowing of your Endless Bounty will fill you with gratitude for your role in the Grand Design.”

“I am grateful for every turn of the road that takes you into the Heart of the All-Is-One-Is-All-Is-Love, and any way in which I can act as a catalyst in some way toward this. Mark well your approach into greater Light Expression and know I am here with you and for you, for I serve the Light in you as best I can, all-ways.”

“I am known to you as Judas Iscariot, and I am grateful to you and to all of Life.”
