I have been reflecting lately on the love and gentle power of the divine Mother. In many cultures, particularly in the West, her influence has been erased or hidden, yet she remains a vibrant and soft force always there for us. Even a transformative force we seldom call upon.
She came to me yesterday morning, discreetly, somewhat unannounced. I keep precious pictures in a folder and one of them is a card that a friend of mine picked during a reading earlier this year. It popped up as I was looking at other pictures and it remained lit on my computer screen, even though I was away for 40 minutes. A persistent message.
It is the Ace of Water. It shows an orange seahorse holding a pearl in its spiraled tail.
In other decks, this card is called the Ace of Cups, with water flowing from a chalice and a dove descending and lilies at the bottom. How symbolic!
I associate the divine Mother with the cleansing and purifying quality of flowing water; think of baptism if you will. Think of her soothing hand caressing all affected and tired areas of our life and our planet. She has a sweet quality which is hard to forget, once we are touched by Her grace.
What is your representation of divine Mother?
And how does she, or did she, touch your being?
If she hasn’t yet, perhaps it is time to invite her!
