~ Navaratri !!! ~

Happy Navaratri!

It is Navaratri, the celebration of the nine nights of the Goddess! There is a Vedic myth about these nine nights ~ whose energies hold the archetypal consciousness of the Trinity Goddesses and bring them fully through the Earth plane at this time.

The energies of the Triple Goddess are palpably present here on the earth plane at this sacred time - 10:10:10!!! The number 9 is the number of overcoming ignorance, of completion and of wholeness. The number 10 is a number of shifting consciousness... and today is 10:10:2010. An opportunity to transcend any ignorance still present in heart, body, mind, or spirit and to invoke the Blessings of the Goddess' infinite resources.

I have been experiencing resurgences of old, presumably dealt-with patterns in the ego and in the heart - levels of heartbreak that seemed long healed and moved into wholeness. There is a deep, deep clearing of the body and the physical life at the moment - so patterns that have truly been worked through are 'up' again.

The mistake is to assume we know this pattern - "oh I know that one..." and not to look at what is underneath it. The Divine Mother is holding our deepest core issues and wounds 'up' for us to allow them to be offered into wholeness - but our minds look for 'historical' patterns so that we will busily try to clear a false overlay on what truly needs to 'die' within us (our spiritual egos) in order for us to move through the portals that are now upon us and into the new reality we have the opportunity to create together.

Let the root, the core of what you are feeling in. Let it come. Let the heart seem to 'break' open yet again... yet again. We have not done this level of deep clearing in the lives of the past cycle. In this life, we must ~ or we must physically begin again. If we do not begin again in consciousness, the body will not withstand the onslaught of the transformations and changes we have asked for at this time.

Let yourself Love. Let it come. The power of the Goddess is infinite. She is helping us. She will take us through this if we allow and receive Her every Blessing.

Notes on Navaratri by Dr. Baskaran Pillai:

"Power and energy are not masculine, but feminine. This is the greatest finding of the Yogis of India…

Woman epitomizes power - the power of love as well as destruction. She can make or mar. That is the secret behind the feminine energy. So, the Yogis wanted to use this feminine energy in order to destroy the evil and also to rebuild the world.

Female energy is the most powerful energy. It is only available during certain configurations of celestial timing. Yogis eagerly watch for this time to be in harmony with the power of the Mother Goddess”, says Dr. Pillai

May Every Blessing Find you!
