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.

“Lakwanna (She Who Dreams Reality Into Being)” copyright Roslyn McGrath

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.

#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.

Your Energy Movement, Jan. 2020

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

“Rainbow Woman” copyright Roslyn McGrath

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.

Your Energy Movement, December 2019

Wholeness Chakra Activator, copyright Roslyn McGrath.

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

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.

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.
