Holding the Light

It is ironic that in the week we celebrated the Festival of Light, that so much darkness touched our world –  Beirut, Baghdad and Paris posing horrid and poignant examples.

It is easy to question the future of our dear Earth when man made atrocities like this occur, particularly when they are enacted supposedly in the name of Religion. Rather than being the unifying phenomena that it should be, throughout our history Religion has served only to separate humans into bickering groups of self righteousness.

But is that Religion’s fault? Surely it is humanity’s fault…for drifting so far away from Source that our churches, temples and mosques – ironically built in honor of that Source – serve only to entrench our limited consciousness into feelings of superiority over our fellow humans.

Where is the hope? It is within us. We are all holding the Light that is the only power that will overcome this darkness. We are all holding the Light that reveals to us how we are manipulated by political interests, conditioned into beliefs of needing to be safe from a terrible enemy.

We all hold that Light, but we do not all see it.

Such is the irony of our existence. We are the Light. We are the Power. We are the Source. Our future depends on us finding that Light and Power, recognizing that we are Source.

The state of our precious Mother Earth reflects our fall from grace, our fall from Source. It is up to us to bring Her back to her full glory. Holding the Light is our path to that glory.

My Earth Angels, let us shine our Light bright for the future of humanity.



The Divine Mother


Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights and Hindu homes this November will be lit brightly, signifying the triumph of light over darkness, wisdom over ignorance and good over evil. Of all the deities that grace the Hindu tradition, is it any wonder that it is the Divine Mother, as Mother Lakshmi, that is worshiped at Diwali – that it is the Divine Feminine that embodies the traits of light and wisdom?

Our beloved Mother Earth is ascending out of darkness into the light of a Golden Age. As She throws off the last of the shackles of that darkness, we witness her convulsions in the natural disasters and political upheavals that mirror the chaos into which humanity has descended.

The Divine Mother comforts us at her bosom, reassuring us that all will be well. She welcomes us to dance with her, raising the energies of her presence as Mother Earth. We witness the rise of the Divine Feminine through feminine defiance, as seen in Malala Yousafzai. The Divine Mother makes herself seen in the most unlikely places, reminding us that it is her fierce energy that is needed to destroy the ignorance and darkness.

The shift to the Golden Age may not be smooth, but the Divine Mother, like any loving mother, gently but firmly guides us on the right path. She is our refuge, our constant companion, our solace.

May the Divine Mother guide you into your Golden Age.

Love and Light.
