On Sunday, June 29, I facilitated a fun and joyful workshop, ritual and celebration of the Summer Solstice!
The sun has just waxed to its fullest point on the Wheel of the Year. This is the perfect moment to call upon and harness the power and energies of this most abundant time of the year. The powerful summer sun is an inspiration and guide for you to be your fullest, brightest, most wonderful self ~ The Queen of Your Own Life!
Here are some lines from one of my favorite writings about the Goddess. It is called, "The Charge of The Goddess."
"I, who am the beauty of the green earth, and the white moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the desire of the heart, calls unto thy soul. Arise, and come unto Me. For I am the soul of nature, who gives life to the universe. From me all things proceed, and unto me they must return; and before my face, beloved of all humans, let thine innermost divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the infinite. Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices; for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. Therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you."
The loving message of the Divine Feminine Goddess is to celebrate yourself! The Goddess gives you permission to shine your light onto your life, onto your self and onto the people and things you love.
Sunday was a day of celebrating, creating beauty, standing in our power and joy, singing and creating sacred space & ritual together. We experienced the magic and inspiration of the Divine Feminine!
Together we created sacred space with a hundred flowers, candles, cloths of fire-colored magic, photographs of women in their power and joy, images of the Goddess, the Mother Queen's, crystals and statues of the Divine Feminine archetypes.
There was sacred music, healing chants, prayer flags of beauty and peace, sacred art making. Women shared their stories, their insights, their essence with each other and they participated in a beautiful Queening ceremony.
Stepping into our power, finding our voice, shining our light and wisdom; our highest, brightest selves out into the world, is one of the most challenging feats to accomplish. It is our birthright, our duty, dare I say, to do so ~ but it takes courage and it takes loving ourselves, over and over again, to walk the path that is lit by our own inner flame.
May you be blessed, may you bless yourself and may your blessings pour forth love and light onto those you love, your community and the bright green and healing waters of this earth.
