“Beautifully practical book revealing how to re-discover yourself.
Liberating, playful, simple in its truth.”
Diana Fabiánová, director of the movie The Moon Inside You,
This book is a guide to remembering that you are female – that you were created to dance with the Goddess in a close embrace and to create your dreams with her help. It is a guide to remembering that you embody the Divine Feminine and that your path is to heal and nurture both yourself and the World. Reading the messages in this book throughout the month will awaken a living, intimate and beautiful relationship with the Divine Feminine. It will create a life of beauty, purpose, inspiration and creativity.
Ordinary relationships flow and change with time, and those that last do so because lying at the core is love and acceptance. To experience a lasting relationship with the Divine Feminine we need to accept that she not only designed us to change but also designed our relationship with her to change. We simply need to learn, welcome and love these changes in order to bring her into our everyday lives.
The messages in the following pages will help you to love yourself, to accept your changing nature and to learn to partner the Divine Feminine in an exciting dance that changes tempo and direction as you follow the labyrinth path. When you feel disconnected from your divine dance partner the messages are there to help you to reconnect and let go to allow her to support and lead you. Then you can explore and dazzle the world in many beautiful ways as you express the Divine Feminine and your relationship with her in your life and in the world around you.
This book is the result of a heartfelt cry to try to understand how we can experience the loving presence of the Divine when a ‘one-size fits all’ spiritual approach doesn’t seem to work for us. Spiritual techniques that brought us close to the Divine one week seem to fail us the next. We find ourselves asking: Why doesn’t the prayer that worked last week bring me the same feeling of connection and calm today? Why doesn’t the blessing that opened me to Divine love and peace last week work for me this week? Why does the ritual or service that expressed my loving awareness of the presence of the Divine last week feel like a detached routine now?
This cry from the heart, a wish to experience and live in a relationship with a loving Divine presence that is engaged with us, that is attentive, accepting, supporting, restoring, and willing to co-create our lives with us, is strong. It calls from a hollowness within, a sense of something missing. It comes from a misunderstanding of ourselves, a misunderstanding of female spirituality and a misunderstanding of our natural relationship with the Divine.
As women, our spirituality is different to that of men. The masculine spiritual approach fails us because we do not think, feel or experience the world, ourselves or the Divine as men do. And it’s within this knowledge that we hold a beautiful secret:
Our spirituality changes as we change – whether it’s through life, through the seasons, through the lunar cycle, or most particularly through our monthly menstrual cycle.
Our relationship with the divine changes as we change. Instead of perceiving our spirituality and our awareness of Divine love as having only one form and one approach, we can instead see it as a changing expression. Just as we can still dance with the same partner when the music changes from a waltz to a tango, we can still stay connected to the Divine throughout our own changes. Once we realize this, we are able to create a wonderfully vibrant, fulfilling and interactive dance with the Divine Feminine. We fall in love with her, and in our complete acceptance of her we experience self-acceptance, self-worth, self-love, a sense of belonging, and the ability to actively live in tune with who we are truly meant to be.
The gentle and engaging messagesin this book are written to speak directly to your changing self, to help you build a conscious awareness of the presence of the Divine Feminine, and to create your dreams in tune with her. The language of these messages is non-specific and the term ‘Goddess’ can be changed to any goddess name or title that resonates for you. You may wish to change the name you use depending on the section. For example: Maiden (Action phase), Mother (Heart phase), Enchantress (Revealing phase) and Crone (Being phase), or Bright Maiden, Bright Mother, Dark Maiden and Dark Mother, if you wish to honour the Moon phases.
The messages can be dipped into each day for guidance, read in sequence, or used in association with the seasons, lunar cycle or stages of life.
There is however a powerful way for cyclic women – women who experience a menstrual cycle – to use the messages, one which reflects the heartfelt cry. It is a journey that takes us from everyday awareness to deep within, and then out again into the light of the world – it is the labyrinth path. On this path the messages hold your hand, and guide you through your cycle and its phases of changing energy, emotions, needs and desires. The messages offer ways to heal the disconnection with your ‘true self’ – the Divine Feminine – in each phase. Each message is designed to connect you with the Divine Feminine and to help make the relationship with her an abiding part of your everyday life.
