A Divine Womb of Light: The Alchemy of the Goddess

A Divine Womb of Light is an exploration of the Sacred Feminine and the application of Her transformative energies. These writings will have the intent and focus of inspiring and quickening within the individual a thirst for deeper connection and opening to the magick and gnosis of the Goddess in all of Her forms. She is the Mother, the Uraeus, the Muse, the Warrior, and the Healer, to name a few. SHE is the cycle of life and death and all that is held between; and my goal is to share the wisdom of her Womb of Light that all may claim their Divine birthright.

Happy Halloween! What Mask Are You Wearing?

Today is October 31.2021 and All Hallow's Eve/Halloween. This is the season for costumes, masks and becoming something other than yourself. In some cases that metamorphosis guides the individual towards a new way of being in the world and in others it is an opportunity to try on another persona. And, for others it is a way of stepping out of the everyday and into projecting a new image for a short period of time.

So, what mask are you wearing today? What is it that you wish to project into the world? What are you temporarily stepping away from to become some(one/thing) else? We have ll been through so much this year and a half+ and re-entering the world has been challenging for some and still not an option for others. And, so I ask what mask you have chosen as a way to give some deep consideration to how we wish to move forward. 

Before I go any further, let me clarify my thoughts on masks. Often the idea of a mask is one that we should be able to arrive at a place of wholeness and self-acceptance where we do not have to wear a mask (covering/illusion, etc..). The mask being something that we hide behind, is not authentically who we are and keeps the truth of our being cloaked and shrouded. I agree with much of this, but I also have seen and know of the power that is held in wearing a mask, much like the cocooning process of a caterpillar into the beautiful butterfly. I believe that we move from mask to mask as we seek and settle into who we are, and this wearing allows for feeling safe and in control of how much vulnerability we wish to reveal of ourselves and to who and when. Perhaps a more useful way to approach this for some is the terminology of "personality" projected vs. wearing a mask? Your choice!

Masks are useful tools for slowly settling into whatever you are outwardly projecting. They allow for integration as the wearer begins to see themselves as that persona. And, if in the wearing it is revealed that this is not what/who you wish to be on a more permanent basis, the mask is removed and another takes its place. 

I have chosen All Hallow's Eve for this post because the time is ripe to begin a new journey and actively chose the persona we wish to cultivate. The gift of this liminal space is one of flexibility, changeability and deep transformation guided by those who have come before us; those who have worn many masks and have integrated those personas into their legacy.

I am not going to belabor the how to go about this process, that is for you to decide. I will, however, encourage you to seek counsel from your Ancestors and your Higher Self in what mask you will be choosing. There is much beauty and wonder in the world and if in the choosing of a different mask (personality) brings you more of a sampling of that beauty, than step into its mantle with curiosity and grace and be open to the experience and lessons that will surely ensue.

Blessings of this All Hallow's Eve!
