We are now just past the midpoint between Solstice and Equinox, a fertile time for planting the seeds of what you wish to grow.

What are you seeding into reality this Imbolc season? And how can you help this to grow?

True growth rarely occurs in a straight line. There is always an element of the unknown. May connecting with Lakwanna this season inspire and support you!

Lakwanna’s (She Who Dreams Reality Into Being) Message

My mystery
is the heart of the Universe.
I am the dreams you’re made from,
the course you’re required for living,
the soul of eternity
moving forth within
the interface of Heaven-Earth.

Goddess Wisdom for December, 2019

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.

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.
