Melanie Dawn:

It’s that time of year. May you blessed with the magic of the summer season.

The Pachamama, Mother Earth, offering is a collection of natural substances representing that which we want to purify and manifest in our lives. Pachamama loves everything from herbs and flowers, to crystals, coins, and shells. As long as it can be burned without harming the environment it is considered an acceptable offering.

We do the Pachamama, Mother Earth, ritual every year as way to bestow our gratitude, love and respect for the earth and all its creatures, as well as those from other realms like the faeries, our spirit guides, and ascended masters. We give our thanks for the blessings we have received and lessons we have learned.

Through this ritual we show Pachamama our devotion to serving and protecting the earth. As a thank you for our dedication in service to her she grants us our manifestations [if she so chooses].

Summer Solstice is a magical time and one of my favorite times of the year. For one it’s my birthday and it’s also a faerie day, where the veil between our world and the land a faerie is thin. For these reasons I have a very personal connection to this season. Even before I started on my spiritual path I would celebrate my birthday outside in nature, and often dancing under the stars. It was when I met my faerie partner in magic Melanie Dawn that Solstice started to have an even deeper meaning for me. It was the first of the Sabbats that I began to honor and celebrate. It marked my initiation into the “Old Ways” which has lead to fully embracing my inner faerie and spiritual self.

Summer Solstice occurs sometime between June 20th – 21st in…

How to Create Abundance with Lakshmi

Jai Maa!

mahalakshmi-PZ41_l

Having just returned from 4 blissful days of kirtan, yoga and workshops at Shakti Fest in Joshua Tree, CA, I AM exploding with divine feminine light and love to cast upon you. Shakti Fest is a more retreat like version of its parent yogi festival, Bhakti Fest.

The heart of Shakti Fest, like its name depicts, is centered around the divine feminine.  One of the key transformational experiences that came out of the event was divine union with one our Living Fae archetypes Lakshmi. Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of wealth, prosperity,  fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. She represents these energies in both their spiritual and material forms.

As light workers we are attracted to numerous deities and have built altars, invoked and performed rituals to honor each of them. Lakshmi has most certainly always been around and within us, but presently she is shining through to us ever more prominently. She of course comes to us in perfect timing as we channel even more light and love into Living Fae.

Lakshmi is the embodiment of the superior divine feminine energy.  She purifies, empowers and uplifts you. She is also the personification of Kundalini which is the Spiritual energy within us and the universe. Her arms signify Purity, Prosperity, Perfection and Freedom. The gold coins continuously flowing out of her left hand represent endless material prosperity. Her right hand symbolizes blessing and assurance of safety to her devotees.

If you want to bring more Lakshmi into your life create an altar for her and make it one of the most beautiful altars you have ever created. Surround it with flowers and all things you find of beauty. Then set your intension for all the abundance you wish to create. After you’ve designed the altar spend time chanting her mantra in front of it. It’s good to chant it 108 times daily, which only takes about 8 minutes of your time. It is said that if you chant a deity’s mantra in front of it it is infused with the divinely channeled energy of the mantra.

Mantra for Lakshmi

Om Shreem Mahalakshmiyei Namaha

Translation: Om and salutations to She who provides abundance.

You can chat the mantra with Deva Premal here.

May Lakshmi fill your life with beauty and abundance beyond measures.

Mother Goddess Blessings For You

Blessings of light and love to all this Mother Goddess Day!

lotus flower

Bestow love, honor, affection and respect for your Mother, all the Mother figures in your life, the Mother Goddess and the nurturing Mother archetype within you.

The Mother archetype’s function is to be aware of what you need to keep your life harmonious and in balance. Tune into your Mother archetype and listen. The more you can tap into that energy, the more loving and caring you will be to yourself. The more vibrant you become.

Take responsibility for yourself and look after your needs.  When you nurture your own self you understand what’s needed in your life in order to feel safe, secure and supported.  Take some time and reflect on how you can be the best Mother to yourself. What do you really need most to feel healthy, happy? The healthier your Mother archetype is the more you are able to create a healthy, happy life for yourself and others.

Affirmations:

  • I take care, honor and respect my needs.
  • I AM responsible for myself.
  • I AM supported and guided with love and tenderness.
  • I trust and release all doubts that block abundance and prosperity in my life.
  • I AM safe and I protect my inner child.
  • I AM a great Mother!

Meditation:

  • Light some myrrh or palo santo. If you don’t have either of those scents use something earthy. If you have some mala beads have those with you.
  • Sit in lotus or half lotus with your back straight.
  • Take a deep breath and feel the base of your spine sink into and connect with the earth beneath you. Feel roots growing down from you into the earth.
  • Feel yourself connect with the earth, feel its love and support.
  • Chant Om, 3 times.
  • Now visualize a bright red glowing orb spinning at the base of your spin. See it get brighter and brighter.
  • Feel the warmth of its glow.
  • Chant: Om shanti Om (108 times – use the mala beads to help you count or chant along with Deva Premal)
  • End your meditation with: Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om
  • Bask in the glow for a few minutes before you open your eyes and go about your day.
