HER PRESENCE

Praying with THE MORNING STAR

 

The Blessed Virgin Mary. Holy Mother. Mary, the Mother of God. Madonna. Our Lady. Virgo. Queen of Heaven. God-Bearer. Holy Mary. Immaculate. Stella Maris. Theotokos. Star Mother. Mother of Divine Grace. Most Merciful. Mystical Rose. Seat of Wisdom. Morning Star. Queen of Angels. Mother of Perpetual Help. Undoer of Knots.

“Holy Mother is not meant to be a fence: Holy Mother is a Gate.”
— Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Untie the Strong Woman: Blessed Mother's Immaculate Love for the Wild Soul

She is known by many names and wears many faces. You may know her as the dark madonna, the robed and starred Guadalupe, the lady with the moon at her feet. You may know her as the virgin - the woman unto herself - or the as a young girl who speaks to angels. You may know her as the sorrowful mother or, the woman with the roses who appeared to Bernadette at Lourdes.

Perhaps you find her in other traditions - feel her as Kuan Yin - the goddess of compassion and mercy.

Even if you have never given her an identity, never envisioned her face or her dress or her light, you have likely felt her - at least once - protecting you, nurturing you, comforting you, singing with you, dancing along side you.

She belongs to everyone.

Everyone belongs to her.

And she is always here, always has been.

She does not need to rise, as she has never gone away, never departed us.

When we feel disconnected, it is never because she isn’t there.

I am creating a course to help you develop your relationship with the Cosmic Mother; a course that opens in your heart the understanding that you are sacred, that you are seen and heard,

that you are beloved.

I want to help you establish a prayer life that belongs to you - one that speaks the language of your soul.

I want you to open your heart, step into the holy temple of each day, and clear the vision of your intuitive eye so that you can live the life you were meant to live, guided by the Divine.

This course is adaptable and designed to enable you to find your path with her.

Her Presence is different from any other course I’ve created in that I’m opening up to you about it now, before it’s completed, before the doors of the classroom are open.

I’m telling you about it now so that I can weave your voice into the creation process.

I would love to hear from you about your thoughts or questions about the sacred feminine, what you hope this course contains, any fears you have about entering this terrain. I would love to hear your secret wishes, or questions about Mary, the Mother of Love.

I look forward to hearing from you.

You can contact me here.

To be the first to know when the classroom doors open, hop on my list. As a free gift, you’ll receive Mornings With Mary, a little devotional I created based on my mornings sipping coffee barefoot in my Mary garden.

You are divine in nature.

You are a beautiful light.

You are the heart of God reading into the world.

You are God’s hands and feet.

You are vessel of love.

You are a radiant beam of love reaching out into the world like a lighthouse.

You are a shepherd, a way-shower, an unfolding creation.

You are important and necessary.

There is no one else like you. 

You are guided.

You are held in the arms of the great cosmic mother.

The Mother of God.

You meet her in the scent of a rose, the beauty of a sunset, the moon glowing in the night sky, the hand of a friend, the birds in your garden, in the woods, the taste of an apple on the back of your tongue.

You meet her in churches and chapels and grottos.

You meet her on the streets, tucked under bridges, on shelter cots.

You feel her humming in your blood, singing an ancient sacred song.

The Blessed Mother beckons you to her. 

She calls to you in a voice that soothes your soul.

She is called by a thousand different names. Shows up in a thousand different forms.

It is all love, always love on her face.
