A Goddess Tribute

View More:

There is a deep seeded passion. One that moves back into time and space. Where a young girl believes she can save the world. To be a protector of what she holds dear in her heart. Loved ones, her family, an idea, a belief, the natural world. Her heart lifts out of her chest like the Thunderbird, and propels itself forward as she knows from the depths of her core this is something sacred.

She carries a message within her, that she may not even be aware of at the time. But, like a blossoming of a flower ripens with age and experience. She knows she is nurturing something. She feels the strength building inside of her like the swelling of the tides. It rises within her like the flame of pure passion as she feels it in her throat like a ball rising to be released. It is in this process and moment of clarity that she links this to all that she has been leading up to at this point.
It is the message her soul has been waiting for, and the timeliness that the Earth and her People need in this moment.

She embraces herself now as a Woman. A Goddess. A Fighter of the Good Fight.

Yes, there may be struggle, but she rises up like the Phoenix burning away her own fears, worries, and inner demons. She carries a fierceness within her. Not from anger, or self righteousness, but from the devotion of herself and connection to spirit, that she has a purpose, a mission. That only she can bring forth in her authenticity and unique nature.

She sees her truth and revels in the humility of her own reflection. She bows her heart to Source as she is also a witness of the Creator within.

She is the Mystery. She carries the void of pure potential within her womb, and cradles it with the grace of her own emotional maturity and conscious nature.
She is you. She is me. We recognize this in all the women and men of the ages, as we heal the collective karma of abuse and discontention.

She slays the negative aspects of the lower ego, and vibration that has her captured, and through her connection to the Divine, she knows what to do. She balances the world, and the illusion, as she balances the duality within herself.

She knows she embodies the feminine, acknowledges the masculine and child in her oneness. And exemplifies this in how she reacts to this world. She has an awareness of herself, she looks deep into the mirror of her soul, and not the superficial veneer. If she goes deep, she will find magic. She will touch the universe and open the veils of a world of possibilities. She closes the door to the world that tells her, no.
She is a force. And she owns the Goddess within.

She has enchantment in her eyes. A pillar of power in her stance. Her attention and focus is like the straightest of arrows. She focuses on her target with absolute conviction. She pulls back her bow in a silent crescendo, as she knows it is in the moment of release, and letting go, she must fill herself with a stillness. And only the purity of her breathe, and life force moves straight into the belly of her desires.

She is a catalyst for growth, a way finder, a seeker and quester of life’s great mysteries. She sees the teacher in everyone she meets, as it is an opportunity to witness the uniqueness of the Universe. She knows that all of you carry the stars, and the planets from within.

Trusting The Process

Anxieties and fear may arise when we are not in our clarity. Sometimes it feels as if we are floating in space, suspended by time in the unknown and darkness of what may come next. What sometimes we fail to see, is that within the darkness lies the fullness  of potential. The unknown will always exist. So, how do we move in a place of a higher awareness of our selves and circumstance?
Practice embracing the mystery. And in the sea of darkness, embrace your pure potential, as a creator of your life. When we move into the dark we may enter into this dream like state. What are your dreams? What does it look like, feel like?  Move into the place of the unknown and color this canvas with what you wish to create. As potential is the stardust that awakens an idea, a thought, a vision.
When we find ourselves in the frey, the worries, shift your momentum of thought, again and again into the potential. Anchoring more and more with a positive shift of thought, and insight. Be led by your intuition, and be guided by your heart.
Heart centered guidance paves the path of trust, as you choose to align yourself more and more into the programming of your alignment.
Your body is hardwired to learn, to download programs into its system. The mind and consciousness creates patterns in your psyche in how it relates to an environment that is ever changing. It is open to suggestion. What are you communicating to your body/mind/spirit day in, and day out?
We can hardwire into our consciousness that we are aligned with “perfect and divine timing”. “That all my decisions are right decisions, I have the most success as I follow my heart. I know I am always at the right place at the right time. Everything is always working out for me”. Insert your own positive programs and affirmations here..”….”.
When we adapt this software into our minds and hearts, we can lean into trusting the process more and more. And when we do, we begin to see evidence of it in the world around us. Embracing the mystery becomes liberating as we can move more effortlessly and consciously into grace.
With every moment, with every breathe, we are in the mystery, in the unknown of what happens in the next.. in the next..
Breathe into this expansion, into your conscious participation, into the Awakened Self.
