“Great Mother” the Divine Feminine We Each Carry

The ‘great mother’, the divine feminine source of the universe, in my understanding, is the aspect of creation that births and nurtures. It is the impetus that each individual carries to dream of a future, and to take the tiny and large steps along the pathway of their life to protect, nourish, encourage and love the dream into reality. Whether a male or a female in body, each human has a connection to the ‘great mother’ the divine feminine and the planet itself, capable of having a  dream that is given the nourishment of faith, determination, and strength to grow.

“There will be times when I do not give you what you need,” said my Mother when I was about 14yrs old. She handed me a book and a highlighter. “The biggest gift you will give yourself, is to discover that your you are capable of developing your internal mother, and connecting to the Earth for self sustenance.” The book was entitled “Mothering Ourselves”. I read the book over a series of years. More important than the words, or the passages I highlighted, was the concept my mother had shared with me as a gift. That within ourselves is a source of nurturing, unconditional love, and divine acceptance, that we are able to access throughout our lives, especially when appreciating all that the natural landscape of the planet does to sustain and feed us on every level.

There have been times in life where I lay down on the earth and wept, or ran through a forest and shrieked with glee. I extend my aura to connect with the trees, the grass, the earth below me, and the rivers moving through sunlight. The connection to the earth is a reminder that I am a small physical being, like a child, who is being carried patiently by her mother. To connect with the ‘great mother’ and the divine feminine source within, I offer this visualization that has assisted me in the past:

Go outside, to a place you feel safe in nature.Sit on the ground, with your tailbone touching either grass, soil, sand or rock. If you feel drawn to a particular tree, lean agains it. Place the palms of your hands face down, either on your knees, or on the ground itself and take at least eight deep breaths. With each inhalation visualize that an aura of soft light is expanding around your body like an egg shape. This light may be soft gold, pink or green. It might be another color that you are drawn to at this time such as a strong blue color or a lavender purple. Allow that the edges of the egg shape are beneath the surface of the ground, and the upper edges are reaching towards the sky . There may be plants inside of this light orb. When you are able to hold the image clearly in your mind, say out load or silently something like:

“I ask that the great mother, God/dess, and the earth beneath me, please nurture and nourish the growth and expansion I am currently experiencing in my life. Please send assistance from my angles, guides and the ascended masters working with me at this time, for a heightened awareness for the ways in which I am connected, sustained and nourished with life force by this magnificent earth. Please help me to release and transform any grief I am currently carrying, and to find courage to love all aspects of my self with forgiveness and kindness. Thank you, AUM, amen and Aho.”

If there are images, sensations, or feelings that arise with this visualization, be gentle with your heart,body, mind and spirit as you assimilate them. Notice the ways in which the egg of light feels when connected to the ground you are sitting upon, or which plants you have chosen to include within it. Do the plants have medicinal properties? Perhaps if you have sat near a wild rose bush, your angels are encouraging you to visit a health food store and explore a rose hip tea blend. Have you chosen to be near rushing water? Does your body seek deeper hydration? The places we are drawn to often are filled with subtle helpful messages from our angelic support team and higher self.

What are the qualities of motherhood that you are able to gift to yourself? Is it a supportive word, a reassurance of love, or a fierce protectiveness? These are all qualities that are carried within each of us. We are able to ‘mother ourselves’ when we honestly acknowledge what we are seeking in the external world, and allow it to birth within our internal landscape. As we do so, we become carriers of this potent life force and connection to the divine, and we are able to better share and inspire other people and the world at large. If you find time and space today, to connect with the earth, to honor and appreciate the ways in which your footsteps are cradled by the land, you will be able to reach forward as a man or a woman, to cradle the dreams of another.

Be gentle and fierce in your connection to the divine feminine aspects of the universe. You are beloved.

with light,

Earth Reiki and Barefoot Energy Medicine

IMG_1634

I’ve never had softer feet. They’ve been buffed and massaged to perfection. The hands that massaged them were not actual hands, but the roots, smooth rocks, and the undulations of the dirt trail that winds through the trees behind my house. I’ve been jogging barefoot for the last few months. Each step, landing on the balls of my feet, small steps with intention. Steps without an aim of ‘getting somewhere fast’, but with an intention of connection to the earth and a reactivation of energy exchange between my Self and the earth that is supporting me.

During the spring months, I began to notice a reoccurring theme in my Angel Readings for others. Each time I worked with Archangel Raphael and the fairy kingdom, I ‘saw’ an image of bare feet, pressing into the earth, and the energy exchange of soft gold light for the release of emotions and lower energies. I would like to share this visualization:

Go outside and find a patch of earth that calls to you. People with be drawn to different features, and they can trust that the surface of soft sand, or smooth rock, or moss and damp earth, are just the right combination of element and energy for themselves. Take off your shoes (and socks) and place your bare feet onto the ground. Gently rock forward and back, slight rocking from one foot to the next. This can be accomplished with the assistance of a chair, or standing straight up, or crouched over, hugging your knees. The fun part is to allow instinctually, nature and the inner movements of your body to assert what is needed most.

When you feel ready, close your eyes gently and breathe deeply. Allow the breathing to begin to loosen your muscles and relax you mind. This simple relaxation could be enough for the first few times. You may feel encouraged to open your eyes or continue in meditation, connecting with the sounds, smells, feeling and support of this natural environment you have grounded into.

If you feel guided, consider this visualization:  Gold light is circulating through your body. It flows smoothly, unless there is a place that is retaining a negative emotion, trauma, frustration or other ‘block’. It wants to flow smoothly through your limbs, your cells and each of your chakra’s. The greatest gift of this earth, is that beneath our feet is a similar flow of light. The earth offers itself to help us balance and re-connect the flow of energy. Through our bare feet, there is fresh renewing gold light waiting to enter our bodies, and the earth offers us the gift of release. Allow the soft light to flow in a circular manner. Through the tips of each toe, and the base of the heel, up into the body, revitalizing and flushing away blocks. This light travels to the crown of our heads, and back down, to exit through the center of the foot, like a circular fountain of honey gold light. Cradling our feet, at the ankle, is the healing Archangel Raphael. He smiles and welcomes us to this healing experience. These words, or our own personal variation, can assist us in receiving assistance:

“Please God/dess, send me the assistance of Archangel Raphael to help me ground into the earth, to connect my own personal energy with the rhythms and flow of this beautiful earth, and to release the energy that I am ready to realize, and accept the healing power of new vital energy. I allow that the energy I release will be transformed, just as seeds, and plants are transformed. I ask that all trauma I am carrying, be transformed in this manner, and that the energy that replaces it heals through each cell of this body, mind, heart and spirit. Thank you, Amen, AUM and Aho.”

Simultaneously the energy of Jesus offers the gentle reassurance of white light circling the individual, and gentle hands atop, or resting just slightly above our shoulders. His light is the softest of hues, very protective, yet incredibly respectful and gentle of each of our individual comfort levels and boundaries. He stands a step behind us, whether we sit, stand or crouch and his face is filled with compassion and faith. he knows that the burdens you are ready to release can bring on a cleansing through tears. Jesus understands that there are aspects to the world that bring about frustration, disappointment and deep hurt. He offers his cloak of light as you process that which the earth and Archangel Raphael are aiding in healing and transforming. Jesus sends unconditional love and aids in the illumination of this light though the top of the head, the crown chakra. Words that can assist with this are:

“Please God/dess, thank you for sending me the loving support and healing light of Jesus. I accept the comforting light he sends, and the unconditional Love to transform the energy I carry in my Crown Chakra, and awareness. I am worthy of this light and love. The energy of Jesus assist me in this faith that I am worthy of Love. Thank You, Amen, AUM and Aho.”

As the body assimilates these gifts and changes, it is connected to the greater body of the earth itself. In this manner, the energy is given a globe, a matrix of light to integrate changes, transformation and healing. The Earth has a myriad array of light intersections within and atop her. The body of each individual is a pinnacle of light atop, that when ‘connected’ is magnified and balanced. This earth loves each human. We have made choices as a whole that have not always benefited her, yet still, she reaches up, to welcome our toes, to carry and cradle us through each of her steps. WIth a moment or an evening, or a daily practice, of connecting, we are all offered gifts of healing and greater awareness as caretakers of this light matrix and Earth.

We are all beautiful, growing, healing, changing and transforming extensions of this earth.

With light, and may there be flowers between your toes,

Kamia
