Winter Solstice Celebration 2019

Black Madonna just put me on task to redo her whole altar, ordering me about with her directives. She usually does this a week or so before our Winter Solstice Celebration, but this feels way early.

She had me buy her a silver chalice and offering bowl to celebrate Solstice. Although she has been gifted with ritual accoutrements by others, her altar is usually quite simple with articles of nature. This is the first time she has asked me to purchase something like this for her. She’s now draped in a black silk scarf bordered in red roses, flanked by two golden candles, surrounded by crystals, and holding a faerie wand in her hand. The whole time I’m doing this my body is spinning with little eddies of energy throughout my whole being. Simultaneously, I’m feeling the whole Omniverse spinning with us as she reveals herself as the primordial womb and genesis of Creation. All this time, my tears of JOY are flowing.

She then had me create a wreath of Cedar boughs from our faerie forest to hang overhead and decorate all my window sills with cedar boughs, candles, and faerie lights. I have never seen her look so Regal. Something EXPANSIVE is afoot in these next few weeks!!! And it’s being birthed anew in Love and Joy.

Blessing of Transformation

“I am Kali, the Goddess of Transformation who assists in maintaining the balance of Universal order. My sacred fire is a gift of purification in the alchemy of transformation.

I walk before you in the wake of change. Pay attention, heed the warnings, see the signs, listen to your internal wisdom. These stirrings offer you the opportunity to flow with the natural cycles of the universe in grace, rather than allowing them to catch you by surprise amidst the chaos and pain resulting from your attempts to overpower them.

Life is in eternal expansion. Life changes and so must you. Your perceived obstacles are simply a reminder to pause and reevaluate your habitual patterns and beliefs. Once you remove the shackles of the old bereaved belief systems that no longer serve you, you’re free to create a new enlightened foundation. Otherwise your current life shall crumble from beneath you leaving you standing on uneven ground. When the earth quakes, things often collapse and you may find yourself digging through the rubble. But it is here, in what appears as rubble, that the ultimate treasures have been patiently awaiting your embrace.

Beware, I will push you beyond your comfort zone to find the innate power of your full potential. This internal transformation to your GodSelf will rise above the old like a phoenix from the ashes. As the forms of an old culture die the illusion disappears. Meet me in the cauldron of the heart, which lies between the worlds of black and white, good and bad, positive and negative, leaving the extremities of duality behind, all the while experiencing the fullness of it all.

When you heed my call, by stepping away from the old and welcoming the new, you dispel the discordant energies and invite harmony into your world. I am here in service to you. Allow me, Kali, to ease the path of change with grace and return harmony to your Soul Song once again.” ~Goddess Kali Ma~

Agape Love

“It’s time to fully open your heart to the path of Agape, the path of love and compassion, truth and integrity, peace and harmony that transcends our human understanding. Most importantly it is the path of divine joy. Once you find the joy in every moment you will know the true passion of life that gives birth to new Creation. You, dear one, have the ability to see and encompass this expanded vision with a pure heart. This is a Divine gift that will serve you well. As time goes on, you shall be seen for the beauty and harmony that radiates from within you, for you are a reflection of me and I of you. We walk as One and know no bounds.”
~Black Madonna~

Mother Earth

“Our magnificent Mother Earth offers such natural beauty that goes unnoticed and it’s time to reawaken to that beauty. In doing so, we shall spark the Love that resides within all sentient beings. As we open our hearts to Nature, we open to the Mother, just as you’ve opened your heart to me. Together we will watch Love unfold like the petals of a beautiful rose whose scent radiates without bounds.”
