Sitting with the Goddess – Gini Judd

April 13, 2011

Now that the Temple Room is devoted full-time as worship space, members are encouraged to take shifts being present in the room during the hours that Goddess Blessed is open. Two-hour shifts are recommended, on a schedule that works for you.  The duties are to greet people coming into the temple room, sell temple items if people are interested, answer questions about the temple (or direct questions to a temple board member), point out the goddess votives that are for sale. But mostly you will be present with the goddess and help promote the temple room’s spiritual atmosphere. 

I highly encourage all members to volunteer for this opportunity. Spending two quiet hours with the goddess is a wonderful gift to grant yourself. At the beginning of the time, you may busy yourself lighting candles and incense, choosing music, perhaps straightening pillows. Then as time passes, you will fall into the quiet presence in the room. You may read, or meditate, or visit with other temple members, but the sense that you are with the goddess, focused in your devotion, permeates your time in the temple. 

I leave my time at the temple feeling calm and refreshed. It’s a wonderful experience that I feel fortunate to enjoy. You may sign up for your temple time on the calendar in the temple room. I urge you to give yourself the gift of that time.

 Goddess Eireen – Peace- There is no need to worry, as everything is working out beautifully. Even though appearances may seem chaotic, I assure you that a higher plan is in action. This all loving power carrying you and supporting you completely.Your gratitude attracts even more blessing into your life.

 
Even when we feel bogged down by life we have to remember a few things. One we are all human so we will all experience the human qualities of over thinking, worrying, and analyzing things over and over again. This process is really not helpful, over thinking just leads us to be depressed and then leads us to feel negative and then we bring more of that into our lives. The second thing to remember is “guess what we are all here to learn, grow, and perfect our souls!” So part of the reason that we go through hardships is to do just that mission that we have all come here to do. I mean how could you perfect your soul if everything always was perfect all the time?? How would you know great joy if you never felt any pain?  How would you appreciate and love laughter if you had never shed a tear in sorrow? Third yes it is hard to be away from the Source/Goddess/God. When we are away from home that loving bond is very missed. What we have to remember is that, that love sin truly all around us, in us and with us, everyday.
 
Spend some time to day in Gratitude. Look at the positive things you have in your life and let the rest go!
 
May the love of the Goddess be with you today!

Goddess Aeracura – Blossoming – You are just getting started, so have patience with yourself and the process, and do not give up. In many ways you are like a flower bud who is ripe and ready to open and grow. Don’t rush this process, as it is part of your beautiful path.

In our world today we all want instant gratification. By having that we miss the true wonder in the waiting. We miss the fun, joy and hope in taking our time and enjoying each step. So this card comes to remind us that we should try to look at the tasks we have at hand and enjoy them.

Take some quiet time today and look at the things you have been missing. I know that the flowers are blooming but how many of us actually stop by those beauties in our yards and actually take a daily inventory of all that they have done, changed, and grown each day?  In the winter unless you are a fool like me, do you actually take the time to look at or even enjoy the absolute wonder and beauty of a snow flake? The are so truly amazing and they fall from the sky, that is just amazing!! No most of us are to busy gripping about where we gotta be and where we gotta go and it is hard to drive and it is way to cold. So maybe this winter take a moment to truly study a snowflake. How does our world make something so beautiful?

May the love of the Goddess be with you all today!!!!!!!

Goddess Pele – Divine passion – Be honest with yourself what is your heart’s true desire? Reach out and embrace your dreams. They are just as much of a part of nature as the trees, animals and sunsets. Listen to your dreams. Don’t be afraid of your own passion, it will propel you and invigorate your life.
 
Do what you love and find ways to make money or a living doing just that. Passion comes from within the soul the deepest parts of you. Honor that part by allowing yourself to explore what that truly is for you and also allow yourself to look to that place or path and fins a way to make it your won path. Keep your mind positive and allow it to flow and work for you!

Goddess Oonagh – Easy Does It – There is no need to hurry or force things to happen, Everything is occurring in perfect timing. Long time relationships take time. this level of devotion comes from a place of deep loving and concern.   Reach out and take action so that loved ones know that you deeply care about them.
 
Everything has natural rhythms and cycles. We can’t always pick the pace of things. But we can be sure to let those we care about them that we truly do. As the old saying goes “Actions DO speak louder than words.”  I know that it means something when you say you care for someone, but it means soooo much more when you show them. Take your time and think of a way to truly let those you love know that you love them.
 
May the love of the Goddess be with you all today!!!!!

Goddess Sulis – Bodies of Water – Spend time near water, such as a lake, river, ocean, to recharge your batteries. Water’s creative effects are well known and documented. Since the entire human body is made up of mostly water , this makes sense. Water’s effects are amplified when you use it with your thoughts, prayers and magical intentions.

 
Water is very powerful. Don’t we all get really great thoughts or ideas when we are in the shower or tub? Of course we do!!! Water makes us relax and allow things to flow. So recharge your batteries today!!! Take a nice long hot shower or bath. Go sit by the lake in a nice warm coat or blanket. It is right in our back yards!!! How lucky are we!!!!
 
Come in to Goddess Blessed and buy your magical bath potions and salts. Kathy has some new magical bath  bomb fizzes, and she has a few of her own ritual bath salts she makes from scratch, Plus Miss Michelle our wonderful soap creator has a whole line of magical soaps to use in the tub for many reasons!! Take a ritual bath today !!!!!
 
May the love of the Goddess be with you!!!!!!

Goddess Mary Magdalene- Unconditional Love – Love yourself, others, and every situation – no matter what the outward appearances maybe. I am one with the Divine, just as you are, and it is here I choose to reside. I choose  to do my work from the higher consciousness, where love reigns supreme. Focus on the good you can find in people.

 
This is one of my favorite Goddess cards. For me it is the truth to my soul and the key to my being. This is what I strive for everyday! I believe that we all need to look upon each other with unconditional love. There is a light inside us all and sometimes we all have to look to find that within each other. It is very sad to me when some souls turn away from the light that is truly there for us. Yes, it is hard to be away from the Goddess, the Divine source. When you are in her arms and feel her love you can’t help but be moved and brought to the highest high, safest place, and have the most joyous feelings of love and light in your heart. So yes, being down here on this earth can be very hard. The way we miss our mother and that safe place can leave some of us very lost and very torn. So those of us who remember or truly keep her alive inside of us need to reach out and help the others remember. You don’t know a person till you walk a mile in their shoes, I don’t remember who said that, but I know that it is true. What I find is helpful sometimes is to put yourself in their shoes as best you can and look at them from that angle. Sometimes when you do that you get to meet an amazing person and find a friend!!
 
I know it can be hard to not judge others when we sometimes feel so judged ourselves. The key is to remember how it feels when we feel judged and then not do that to others. What I have tried to do since I was a kid really is to try to put myself in someone else’s place, to see their side of things. I think sometimes that helps, even if you don’t agree with the other person. If you look at it from their angle sometimes you can at least sympathize or empathize with what they are going through. It is like a dear friend of mine says someone who loses a leg may have the same amount of pain that someone with a broken finger nail may feel. The pain is relative to the person. Even though we can see that the person who has lost the leg may have “lost” more than the person who broke a nail. But it is relative to the person feeling that loss. The person who lost the leg may have a great attitude about it and is in a very positive place and feels less of a loss than the person who broke a finger nail. It is like looking at where pain starts for that person and trying to help them help themselves though it.  Even though from an objective 3rd person point of view we can see that a broken finger nail vs a lost leg is really on different scales of “pain”. We Still have to take into consideration where that friend or person is on their path in life. Maybe they have never experienced the pain of a broken finger nail, so it is a “first” pain like that for them. So that is where they need support and need us to help them see that they can get though it. The person who lost their leg may need our help and support when it comes to getting out of their wheel chair and trying to walk with a prosthetic limb, maybe that is their threshold for pain and or need for support lies. Just be good to each other and remember take a look at things from their point of view before you judge or decide what is appropriate for someone else.

Freyja is the Goddess who knows what she wants and how to get it, She throws caution to the wind. She is bold , daring, and doesn’t take no for an answer. Where in your life can you be like Freyja?  Is there a goal you want to accomplish or something that you have been afraid to do? Now is the time to set the wheels in motion and act. If you do you will reap the rewards.
