Into Wholeness

Gaia is calling you to come here now. She was the one who called you into this life, into this journey on Earth. Being whole means being in the fullness of this relationship. Acknowledging the depth of her call, and the power of your yes. Are you still aware of your first partner, or are you flirting with all the other guests? Like in any relationship, you are asked to live this yes day to day, minute to minute. To be in the space where your yes was born. Become aware of your feet on the earth. In that touch it’s all happening. Take a moment. Take 7 Minutes. Open up to the bliss that follows. 

Too often we start after a while taking our partner for granted. Tantra teaches us to go back to who really opens your heart, again and again. Break in that divine love. Break open. Become whole.

This is one of my favorite times of year. Spring is in full swing here in Texas, finals are over and I've finished grading the mounds of papers and exams, and I have a little respite before my next round of classes start for summer school. I celebrated this past weekend by taking a trip home to South Dakota to see my youngest niece graduate from high school. As always when I return home, I am struck by the way that the Sacred is close enough to touch there -- in the wildlife that approaches almost without fear, in the early morning quiet and birdsong, in the plants and animals I can identify almost by instinct. While I firmly believe that Goddess is everywhere, in a busy city She can be a bit harder to find sometimes. Trips home nourish my soul and help me remember how to see Her everywhere.

I'm clearly destined to spend more time remembering how to see the Sacred in my everyday, as Maia has come to be my guide for the week. This Greek Goddess is one of the Seven Sisters, the Pleiades, and is also the mother of Hermes. She encourages us to see the magick in our everyday worlds and to use it to help us bloom.

When my wife and I started the Oak Court (for those of you new to the column, that's the name of our coven, and the street we live on) we weren't setting out to start a coven. Heck, our little gathering didn't even have a name in those early days and certainly wasn't called "The Oak Court." We simply invited a few friends over who weren't involved in any other small-circles or covens and grew from there.

    First, I should say that I totally agree with your understanding of coven as chosen family. I tell people that to be in coven with
TAKING A BREATHER  - A Reminder About Crystal Names & Descriptions

This week I decided to postpone the post about Golden Healers (til maybe late week?). Surprisingly (to me) there was a LOT of controversy about the post on Feminine, Masculine and Yin/Yang crystals... I thought it would be a good idea to revisit why we are going over these different names and what they really mean. I have already addressed this in an earlier post but I think it's sometimes a good idea to go back.

Without further ado, I'm just going to cut and paste the post I wrote on this topic from July 2013:

b2ap3_thumbnail_scribes.jpgMany of us are drawn to ancient Egypt, and of those a small number linger to find and follow the spiritual path embedded there.  Soon we find that for all the wealth of published material about Egypt, there is very little about modern spiritual practice.  Egyptian Pagans are also a small minority in the wider Pagan world, so it can be difficult to connect, find teachers and gather for ritual.

My early years on this path were probably characterized by more bumbling and feeling alone than anything.  But much of the first advice I received was to read the Egyptology literature, surely a daunting task for the non-scholar.  After all, few have set out to simply write about religion; more importantly, there was no monolithic single religion in ancient Egypt, at least not as we understand religious affiliation today.  Here are a few things I learned along the way.
