Did you know that you have a ninth main energy center (in addition to the better-known first 7 and your Earth Star Chakra) supporting your personal energy field? I call it the Wholeness Chakra, as it supports the wholeness and integrity of your energies. 

In the busy-ness that the holiday season can bring and the challenges that may be in our life, we may lose awareness of our innate wholeness. Like the sun behind the clouds, it has not gone anywhere. It’s simply disappeared from our sight. So let’s put the spotlight on it instead! Here is  an excerpt on it from my book Chakras Alive! Exploring & Expanding Your Inner Rainbow:

Wholeness Chakra Speaks

I am wrapping you in the wonder of the Universe, the Love of the Life Force Energy. I am support for all that you are. I am nourishing all of your energy vortices and assisting with their alignment and cohesiveness. I am continuing to relate to Heaven and Earth as one therefore, I know my own wholeness and that of all there is.

I am a vortex beyond other vortices in that I exist solely in the upper dimensions to support your three-dimensional existence and your ability to know yourself throughout all dimensions and timelines.

I am more than an interface, and I am a connector, an adjuster, and a nourisher of all your energy centers, supporting the harmony of their interrelationships.

I allow you to experience other-dimensional life with more harmony and ease. I assist you in recognizing wholeness in many contexts and forms, including your own. I enhance your ability to experience wholeness within yourself and all Life.

I am enchanted with the glories of your multi-faceted Life experience and to support your process in these ways. And I thank you for your choice to exist because I am honored to serve you forever.

Goddess Wisdom for December, 2019

Goddess art, visionary art, Goddess wisdom, Goddess meditation

Kali’s Contemplation, copyright Roslyn McGrath

I drew Kali as our guide for this month. Must be time to clear out the old that’s no longer serving for 2020 clarity!

Below is a portion of Meditation from Kali’s Contemplation, found in Goddess Heart Rising: Paintings, Poems & Meditations for Activating Your Divine Potential:

Kali’s knife is clear and strong,
a shining blade cutting through illusion,
doubt, pain, and struggle
to reveal the Truth emanating at your core…

…Kali continues to eliminate
all that hinders your full, true good.
Her knife is cutting away all illusions about yourself
and your ability to respond positively and powerfully to life situations.
Self-doubt, rationalizations, boasting, submission,
egotism, “not-good-enough” and “incapable” are tossed away,
along with any notions of weakness and imbalance
in digesting all that physical life has to offer.
Now you feel the full strength of the energy
vibrating through your solar plexus,
radiating to all aspects of your autonomy,
responsibility, and digestive process.
This sun-like energy reveals total alignment
between your personal will and that of your soul.

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.

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

Hecate, copyright Roslyn Elena McGrath

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

Time to explore what our third main energy center, the solar plexus chakra, has to say!

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.
