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.
