Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Blessed Mother Goddess, Queen of Heaven

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear.  Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.
— Jalal ad-Din Rumi

Holding the beginning bead, in this case, my bisque Goddess image given to me long ago by Susan Baylies, I breathe. Find stillness. Begin.

“Blessed Mother Goddess, Queen of Heaven, She of Ten Thousand Names. Star Goddess. Mama Gaia. My Lady of the Green Wood. Brighid. Danu. Hecate. Minerva. Kuan Yin. Yemaya.

“I give thanks and praises to you this day for your presence in my life and my heart. I give thanks for your many gifts to us…”

How do you practice stillness and coming to center?

By what names do you call to your Divine One(s)?

Has this changed over the years for you?  For me, there are some who never change – I am devoted to them for life. But there are others who I may choose to call upon when I am particularly working with them.

For instance, when our little kitty’s health was declining, and long after he died, I called upon Bast every day. When a friend of mine was going through a very scary pregnancy, I invoked blessed Isis as protector and midwife in my daily practice.

I did not do this in order to ask for more of their favors, but to remember for myself their presence and love, and know they are always available if I would pay more attention.

Considering what is most sacred to you, what your deepest soul’s music may be, who would you invite to hear your thanksgiving? And how might you most recognize Her/His hands upon your own life?

    Interesting questions, Beth. I’m finding a Goddess calling my name (so to speak) as I walk this path… I don’t know if that will change as time goes on, if She will fade into the background and another will come forward to guide me as things change in my life. We shall see!

    Like you, I invoke different Goddesses for different needs (such as Bast for a sick kitty). It’s sort of a work in progress for me right now.

    I don’t tend it invoke gods of goddess’.I belive there is an over all spirit to the universe but I call it by no name, in fact I kind of just let it be, since it is a part of everything.
    I tend to be a bit more elemental when trying to center my self or when I am looking for comfort or peace. An example of this would be if I am feeling alone and sad I will invision a warm summer breeze caressing my face like my mom did when I was little, or when I am looking for a calm center I will get in to a body of water lake pool or bath and feel the movement of the water with in my body.
    umm, so yeah thats the jist of it. . .

    I have felt the soft touch of angels. I believe they wait to be asked before stepping up to the plate when we need help big-time. I ask for intercession to the powers that be in Heaven, and have asked for help from St. Francis or his helpers when dealing with creatures.
    I appreciate the help of the realms of St. Michael, and am often so apppreciative of the fact that Blessed Mary knows and understands the joys and sorrows, and deep grief that come sometimes with motherhood.
    I also am in awe of the powerful goddesses and deep ancient wisdoms in celtic law, and acknowledge Jesus as someone who tried to bring compassion, wisdom and healing to our arrogant world.
    I feel quite at a loss sometimes to know how to handle all life throws at us, and know, even in my fifties, that I still have a lot to learn. I also think our ancestors help if and when when we ask.
    I also feel much help comes to me in dreams, even with symbols from The Tarot.That has never changed over the years, right from early childhood. Such an interesting question. Thank you.
