Ancestors in Water. The Ancestors and Allies are sounding a potent wake up call to us this month. They call on us to bring together our spiritual resources. These resources are our strength and have the power to renew and change the course of things. This is what is needed now. Wake up, dear one.
Wake up the power of your mind. Dream what is possible, expand the mind beyond the ordinary.
Wake up to magic. We are not alone. There is so much help available in the world of spirit. Don't let this connection be relegated to the realm of science fiction and fantasy.
Wake up to your inner greatness. You (yes, you) are indeed special and have a unique presence that emanates from you. It is a mystery and it is just perfect to let it remain that way. You can, however, wake up this part of you by respecting it.
Wake up to what has been handed down to you. You are an embodiment of the great ones who have gone before you. Carry their qualities well.
The foundation for holding these spiritual resources is being in touch with the joy and wisdom of your physical body because this is where your light shines through.
Now, the Ancestors and Allies are not finished. There is another potent message in this month's reading. Please keep listening. The Divine Feminine is speaking.
Your personal healing is intimately linked with the love of the mothers and the grandmothers.
We cannot heal without looking at the way we treat the feminine in our society, both now and in the past. (And all of us carry the feminine within).
A key component of this is to understand that we are nourished by the feminine -
literally and spiritually - and the Earth is the embodiment of the feminine and Mother.
How are we treating her, how are we treating the mothers and grandmothers, and how are we treating our inner feminine? Where do we override nurturing? Where do we lack respect?
How can we love like the mothers and grandmothers? How can we love like the Earth?
This is how we heal.
October ritual suggestion: Either in your home or a favorite place in nature, please call on the Ancestors and Allies to join you. Tell them your intention is to listen from your heart. Give yourself time to get quiet. Introduce yourself to the Earth and the wise women grandmothers. Then "listen" for a word, image, feeling or conversation with them. Allow at least 10 minutes for this. Then bring things to a close by thanking them.
