"Today, we see the reemergence of reverence for the Divine Mother that we
knew in past ages." – Elizabeth Clare Prophet 

The age of Aquarius has been defined as an astrological era, or a great cosmic cycle in the spiritual
evolution of consciousness. This age is intended to bring about a spiritual transformation and
healing unlike any other.

It is the age when our awareness of God as Mother and the Holy Spirit
comes to the fore. This is the age of the Divine Mother and the Holy Spirit.

The Divine Mother, called the Universal Mother or Cosmic Virgin, is the feminine polarity of the
Godhead. She is the "other side" of Father. In the East she is known as Kuan Yin, the Chinese
Goddess of Mercy and Compassion and in the West as Mary, Mother of Jesus. These are only two
of her manifestations.

Being multi-faceted, the Divine Mother has a thousand and one faces and her reflection is constantly changing. Author and spiritual teacher Elizabeth Clare Prophet (Prophet*) writes:

The concept of a divine Mother embraces and yet transcends all religions. In Jewish tradition, the feminine aspect of God is called Shekhinah, literally "Divine Presence." In Hinduism she appears as Shakti, in Buddhism as Prajnaparamita, and in Egyptian tradition as Isis. In some texts of the Old Testament and Apocrypha, the feminine aspect of the divine is called Wisdom, just as the Christian gnostics called her Sophia or Pistis Sophia (meaning "Faith-Wisdom").

The sacred interchange of energy that is God flows from Spirit to Matter, Matter to Spirit. Matter
(the material cosmos) symbolically represents the womb of the Mother.

The Mother anchors the energies released from Spirit (Father) into Matter (Mother). She brings the formlessness of Spirit (Father) into form. 

The Divine feminine is the highest expression or aspect of man and woman and we need both Mother and Father for wholeness and balance.

The Mother and the Goddess

"A bit of Mother, a drop was Krishna, another was Buddha, another was Christ."
-Swami Vivekananda

The myriad faces of the Mother explain her being. She can assume any form ranging from the
gentle comforter to the fearless warrior. She can be tender and playful or terrifying and ferocious.
Speaking about an eighteenth-century songwriter and devotee of the Mother, Lex Hixon writes:
Through Ramprasad's songs, the Goddess reveals herself as Woman Warrior,
Teacher, Mother and Consort. In different moods, she appears youthful, ancient, or ageless.
These are actual dimensions of experience which can be entered by her devotees.

She is divine creativity, evolutionary energy, timeless awareness, transcendent reality, and, in a
special tantric sense, she is every woman. She constitutes the feminine principle within male
and female persons and also manifests the gender-free feminine – self-luminous Mother
Wisdom, nondual awareness and bliss.

When the term Goddess is used for the Divine Mother, these are not the literal gods or goddesses
found in mythology. They are Ascended Masters, enlightened spiritual beings who have made their
ascension and returned to God. Goddesses are great beings of light who embody and focus the God
consciousness of their office or ray.

The Mother Flame

What is the Mother flame? The Mother flame (Kundalini) has been described as coiled energy,
white fire or light located at the base-of-the-spine chakra. This white light has to be awakened and
raised through each of the chakras. Chakras are spiritual centers of light and energy located along
the spinal column that are "gateways" to the "spiritual self."

Raising the Mother flame brings healing and as we heal, we magnetize the light of the Father and
experience the divine interchange of energy that occurs between the Father (masculine polarity)
and the Mother (feminine polarity). We start to integrate the two polarities.
"Energy always follows consciousness…"

Because of the purifying action of the Mother flame, care has to be taken in how it is raised. The
safest way is through prayer and devotion. The goal is to reunite the light of the Mother with the
light of the Father in the heart chakra. When this happens, we give birth to the Christ
consciousness.

The Divine Mother is our great teacher and guru. As the Mother flame rises, we begin to see the
things we need to do and work on. Memories will surface and some will be painful. Healing our
psychology is a fundamental step on the spiritual path and it is important to take hold of the hand of
the Mother during this time as she gives us the inner guidance and strength to press onward.
The blessings we receive from the Mother are endless.

One of her primary attributes is to awaken us. As the Mother light rises, our consciousness begins to undergo a profound change. We become illumined. The wisdom of the Mother teaches us better ways of doing things. She helps us to finetune our communication skills and to improve our interactions with people.

She teaches us to build healthy relationships and to open our eyes to see the needs of others. From her we learn to be more responsible and efficient. She brings harmony and order. All of this is the result of the Mother's energy flowing through us.

The Mother flame and the ascension flame

"The World is striving for the crowning perfection.

Manifold are the paths of the search.

The closest to perfection will be the path of Beauty."

What is the ascension? Simply put, the ascension is a spiritual ritual whereby we "victoriously"
return to God after passing our spiritual tests and meeting certain requirements. Author Annice
Booth says:

Through the flame of the ascension, we become one with our own Higher Self and
then with God the Father, our own I AM Presence…

The ascended masters say we "ascend daily" and every good work, deed and thought aligns us
closer to our Higher Self. Raising the Mother flame must be accompanied by spiritual devotion. If
this is not done, the rising flame will activate all kinds of inordinate desires instead of the God
qualities and virtues we are seeking.

The Mother flame and the ascension flame are one and the same. The ascension flame is the
consciousness of the Mother and the Mother is the white light of the ascension flame. As we raise
the Mother flame we begin to weave our spiritual garment of light called the seamless garment.
Our seamless garment is woven by our thoughts and feelings and the threads represent our
consciousness. We have to replace our old garment with a new one. If we are prone towards being
selfish, then we have to start giving to others.

If we are filled with self-hate, then we must replace this with self-love. As we pass our initiations and start to heal we begin to add virtues to our garment of light. Sages and saints are often described as having one or more special virtues.

Perhaps it is grace, honor or integrity. Some are called truth bearers and others are praised for
being noble and just. Virtues are one of the gifts that come from the Mother.

As we weave them into our seamless garment we can truthfully say we are walking the path of Beauty, the path of the Divine Mother and the ascension.

Our feminine and masculine sides

Whether male or female, we each have a masculine and feminine side. Everything in the spiritual and material world dances in a rhythmic flow of male and female energy. The Chinese call this yin
(feminine) and yang (masculine). Wholeness requires the balancing of our masculine and feminine sides. The Mother shows us the way to do this.

Our feminine side is nurturing, creative, intuitive, sensitive, comforting, caring and patient. She is the healer as well as the teacher. Our masculine side is associated more so with the "law" and as being analytical. He is power, strength, protection and discipline.

When we are out of balance we feel chaotic and lack harmony. We are out of sync with the universe
and our energy is scattered. We become uncaring and insensitive, abusive, aggressive or passive,
indecisive and weak-willed. We become spiritually bankrupt.

The Mother (Teacher-Guru) provides the nurturing, guidance and wisdom we need to successfully
balance our polarities. One of the ways she does this is by explaining the laws of Father. Sometimes
she is required to become the disciplinarian dispensing the discipline that is necessary for balancing
to occur. Her overall desire is to liberate and restore us to wholeness.

The soul of both man and
woman is feminine and Spirit is the masculine side. We have to raise the feminine ray to magnetize
the masculine. Until we do this, we will not manifest the fullness of our wholeness."

I am the Divine Mother. I am also Mother Mary, mother of Jesus son of GOD. I am the Mother of the Universe, the Nurturing aspect of the DIVINE.

"I am also Mother Earth and the Nurturing aspect of the World. I am the Goddess within and the forms of creating without. I am the Diva, the wise Grandmother, the Sophia -- the woman of the world.

I nurture all sexes and religions, every race and blend thereof. I am timeless and ageless. I am present when the sperm and egg unite and the minute you leave your physical body in what you perceive as death.

When you exit the body, I am especially with you to help create a new life in that instant of departure when you leave your physical body and discard the matter of your bones and skin. The Nurturing aspect of what I stand for both creates and destroys with purpose.

All of life, while developing, is about creating and also destroying to make way for the new. Nurturing is not only about holding hands to "form" love, but also taking away matches from the reach of a seven-year old. Fire produces light and energy for reading and warmth, while it can burn and destroy to clean and enrich.

I am the DIVINE Mother, the creator -- that which is being conceived, formed, developed and restructured. I also represent the love of a mother to her children. Just as all sexes require my love, they also require protection and additional support past "that which is becoming life."

As all of life is both energy and matter, the whole of the DIVINE (that which to some is called GOD, or any other name for the Highest aspect of Self, the Total Creator) is the combination of energy, that which is being created, and matter, the substance of life once created.

I am the Nurturing energy of Divinity, and there is also a Protecting matter of Divinity. Many of you call the matter, male image GOD, "Jehovah," the Protecting One or All.

In the true sense, the All of Divinity is the combination of both energy-creating- female-Nurturing , and matter-created-male-Protecting. We admire Nurturing traits in males and Protecting traits in females because the goal is to become both Nurturing and Protecting. The All of Humanity, the universe and beyond, is without physical presence and can be any aspect of itself. Therefore, you are worshipping, talking or praying to an image that is everything.

You are more likely, at times, to relate to those who have been of Earth or are a symbol of a living force of Divinity. Figures of miracles, inspiration, beauty, compassion, strength, service and grace are often more relatable.

My arms are strong; my heart surrounds you. I feel your pain and joy. Every need you have or think of is heard. I am with you every second even when sleep greets you. I project myself out to your children, spouse, mother, father, patrons at church, through your synagogues, your body as a worship place, home, your rituals, prayers and thoughts. I am the Mother of the East as well as Western Culture. How can love have boundaries?

I compassionately love humanity and those who reside on this Earth. I care deeply about your future and the actions that you, as the individual, are taking that is altering the future of your well-being in your life -- your future lives as well as your children's. I purposely come to you now, through the messenger Mattie, to be a guiding image of compassionate truths and critical love.

Right now, today, you require love and guidance, but you must also find in your heart the ability to act on the much bigger picture as the compassionate mother for her planet. Both of you, men and women, can help save yourselves by making your life better. To brighten your life is to focus on the fact that we are one.

All aspects of the Divine Mother are images of people, who throughout time, have offered love and solace. Many have truly been of earth before and are of "the heavens" now, caring of spirit. As the Divine Mother, I have walked this earth before, and am also from the everknowing aspect of earth and sky. Allow me, through this Divine reading, to expand your world of compassionate love and to narrow your focus in loving through learning more the path to All.

All is one; one is everything. You must first see how people through time have loved and worshipped deeply the beauty of myself with many faces. When you love me and all I show you, you will also more fully understand the core of my love for you. I will show you many ways in which people, now and throughout time, see and feel my presence. Allow me to introduce you to myself and the beautiful ways we relate to each other. You will find paintings, drawings, sculptures, collages, reminiscent items or objects like beads or rosaries that connect with your inner core of knowing.

As always, you can talk, console and communicate with me anytime without physical or material representation of me. But if things of beauty and peace-- a reminder, a focal point-- help you connect, please use these resources that bring you the highest ability to stay enlightened and loving throughout your day and night.

I am the Divine Mother. I love you with every cell of my body-- never waning in my conviction or honesty. No matter what your circumstances are, I love you completely. Come to me; my arms are the cloak of the world."

I love you always,
Divine Mother

Travel down the path through the Sanctuary of the Divine Mother. Come anytime for peace, hope, comfort, answers to questions, direction and relief. Seek the Guidance of the Divine Mother."

"Divine Mother" or "The Goddess"

"For most of us, when we say "Divine Mother" or "The Goddess" we are talking about the Supreme Being as the creatrix of the universe who expresses compassion and love in a very personal, direct, and intimate way in the same way that a loving mother cares for her children.

Words fail to say who or what the Goddess is but She can be known and experienced in a direct and personal way. This means that we can't say for sure how big She is or where She came from or what Her ultimate form is or why She is.

What we can do is enter into a relationship with Her, a communion that is very intimate, close, loving and personal. She will be our best friend and confidant and our patient teacher.

Both the creation stories in Genesis and in the Hindu Rig Veda begin with the idea of the formless, the void, and the absolute. Then creation arose (or is continually arising) out of this. The Rig Veda describes this "arising" as a divine whim or play of the Supreme.

The creation that occurs is Mother (maya), the divine whim (Shakti or power) is also Mother and the absolute formless ground of being is, again, Mother. We can grab hold of Her skirt at any point along this timeless expression of the Divine and, if we hold on tightly, She will dispel our illusions and deliver us to the blissful and peaceful realization of Divine Truth.

Maya, in Her potential aspect, is the divine power of the Lord. She has no beginning. She is composed of the three universal qualities (gunas), subtle, beyond perception.

It is from the effects She produces that Her existence is inferred by the wise. It is She who gives birth to the whole universe. - Adi Shankara, The Crest Jewel of Discrimination Translated by Swami Prabhavananda & Christopher Isherwood

When the Supreme Being is thought of as actionless - neither creating, sustaining nor destroying - I call Him by the name of Brahman (pure absolute formless being) or Purusha. But when I think of him as active - creating, sustaining and destroying - I call him by the name of Shakti (Divine Mother as primal energy) or Maya (the veiling power of the Divine Mother by which the One appears as many) or Prakriti (Divine Mother as primordial nature which, in association with Purusha, creates the universe).

The actionless Brahman and the active Shakti are in fact one and the same. He, who is the Absolute Existence-Intelligence-Bliss, is also the All-knowing, the All-intelligent and All-blissful Mother of the universe. A precious stone and its luminosity are one and the same, for you cannot imagine a diamond without it, and vice versa.

God the absolute (formless) and God the personal (Divine Mother; form) are one and the same. A belief in one implies a belief in the other. Fire cannot be thought of apart from its burning power; nor can its burning power be thought of apart from it. Thus God the absolute cannot be thought of apart from the idea of God with attributes (Mother). - Ramakrishna - The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna Translated by Swami Nikhilananda"

Christian Witch Reveals - What About Deut 18:10-11?

The Grand Reset; Making Space for the New Empowered Human

"THE GRAND RESET

Greetings from Home, Dear Ones.

Making Space for the New Empowered Human

It is such a joy to be with you all. There is a large family that has gathered again and again here on planet Earth. The Family of Light — you can call it a number of different things–we call it the Family of E, Lightworkers. Many of you have come in at this time with the intention of bringing the collective to the highest level possible. That is very beautiful yet very difficult, so we wish to speak with you about what is ahead and what each of you can do.

Dear ones, you can take a part i what is happening in the world around you to make space for the new empowered human. That is truly what is going on. There are significant adjustments occurring on planet Earth. We have spoken of the tension of the tectonic plates and how humans are picking up on it, sometimes overreacting. You have come in and started to balance the masculine and the feminine. This is a challenging balance for you because you have always seen things as polarity, as opposites.

To suddenly begin seeing everything as connected and whole is very difficult for humans, although you are aware that is where you are now Dear ones, you are some of the most important people that can help to ground the new thought in this new energy. Yes, you have come in with this idea but at times it means holding a truth that is against what your parents taught and even what you have learned in other areas. That is one of the more freeing parts of who you are, and the new humanity is available on planet Earth. We are very excited to share this with you today.

The Outbreath of God

Dear ones, the universe moves very quickly or very slowly depending on your relationship to it. During the last 15 years it has moved quite slowly in some ways. More than a decade ago, we told you that there was an in-and-out breath of god that created a beautiful pulsing of the universe. The last time this shifted from one to the other, your universe was born.

We tell you this was very interesting, because you have so many concepts of how you can see into the night sky. It is happening now, which is the beautiful part of this.

There is a change of direction which has been occurring during the last four years. Many of you have wrestled with the incredible denseness on planet Earth, as you have felt the changes and positioned yourself in new ways. Some have cleared the decks by experiencing Phantom Deaths of your own, daring to pass by the door you had created for yourself to go Home. Others came in with heightened sensitivities to see, feel and sense things very quickly, which is what made you healers and gave you the gift of being able to connect.

Now there are advances in humanity and even your physical body is changing to accommodate the energy. One of the things that we have been speaking about is your Vagus nerve, which makes you feel everything. Have you ever had a gut reaction to something? Have you felt an energy and your heart started racing for no apparent reason? That has to do with your Vagus nerve and its evolution, so we wish to share with you the larger reason why it is happening.

You are removing many of the boundaries which have made you separate from each other and that is what is taking place in this outbreath of god. Not all, but many of the challenges that you see in your world are caused by the outbreath or are reactions to it. You are coming into this with a balanced masculine/feminine energy, although before from your field of polarity you saw things as opposites. There are still many who are heavily invested in one energy or the other, rather than both blended together. Those who are very invested in the masculine dominance of planet Earth are overreacting, which is much of what you are seeing on planet Earth at this time.

March 2015 

Now your tendency is to polarize everything and say, “Oh that is them, not us. We are different, for that is only this segment of people.” Dear ones, re-member they are humans, they are a part of you and part of your experience on Earth. What we ask you all to do is to start seeing the larger picture of how you can connect based on what you have in common, instead of only how you are different.

It is a little bit against your nature because you have come in with this separation anxiety, pretending to be separate from each other while you experience humanity and yourself. It is time to change, dear ones, and that is what is happening now. On a larger scale there is an energy change coming, and that will take some time to adjust to.

We wish we could tell you that on a specific date the energy will change and everyone will feel better. What we will give you is a rough date that has to do with the evolution of humanity. shifting and that is in late March of next year.

A Chance to Reset Your Doors Home 

In preparation for this new energy, many of you are re-evaluating everything in your lives. This is truly as it should be but let us explain why this is taking place. This is happening because of all the opportunities that you set up before you came in. Many of arrived with incredibly sensitive Vagus nerves so you could do your healing work, yet you find yourself overwhelmed with it and carrying everybody else’s energy even though it was not your responsibility to do so. Coming in with this heightened sensitivity, many of you have placed doors to Home.

We call these “Phantom Deaths,” for they are the opportunity for you to get out of the body and return Home. You have set up circumstances, opportunities, even sometimes planted seeds of ill health in your own being, so that you could accomplish this process.

Many of you are healers, so you have the understanding that sickness is wrong. It is not, dear ones. Many times it is the only way to release your spirit from that body. You all thought about this at great length before you came in.

What is happening between now and the end of March 2015, is that humans everywhere will have the opportunity to re-set their own opportunities to go Home. Many of you are tired and frustrated. If you feel that you have done all that you can do, you will be presented with the opportunities to leave. Re-member, dear ones, you are on the planet of free choice. This is the only planet of free choice at this moment with the exception of the second which is now in motion. The beautiful part of that is that you can change all of this, and if you wish to stay you may re-set your energy at this time. Let us explain what that is like and what it will accomplish—not only for you but for your spirit. Your spirit carries a certain amount of energy and light that you have been able to hold within your physical, dense bodies.

That is starting to change, for there are even photons growing inside your body at this time. Soon your molecular and microbiologists will start to understand even more about the photonics of the physical body and how this can start to grow. It will change everything in your life. For now many of you are tired and know friends who will be leaving, but that is as it should be. Do not consider death in any of its forms to be wrong. Instead it is to be celebrated, dear ones, for it is a re-turning to the Home of the spirit. Dear ones, you have done such incredible work.

Many of you have orchestrated early exits; you came in with such sensitivity that you planned opportunities to get out of here as quickly as possible. Between now and the end of March you have the opportunity to re-set that energy, make new contracts, and set things into motion. This has not been the norm ever since you stepped into this new energy and moved into this new plane of light. The highly charged photonic particles that are hitting Earth every single day are offering a new experience of planet Earth. Quite simply, some of you will feel like leaving and you have permission to do so, dear ones. No one is telling you that you have not completed your mission or you must stay. Here is what will take place if you decide to stay.

Phantom Death 

At some point over the next few months, you will go through a process of a Phantom Death. Perhaps your heart will stop on the operating table, and it will be very obvious that it is truly a Phantom Death. Others are on a more direct path.

Your spirit is saying, “Go forward. Step forward.” When you come to these opportunities to go Home, they will pass very quickly. It might just be a close call in traffic and all of a sudden you realize, “I could have died just then but let me continue my path.” And you just keep on moving forward, but you will know. These opportunities are to be celebrated dear ones, not feared. You set these up at the beginning before your incarnation and this lifetime began. They are part of the contractual arrangements that you made with planet Earth, and part of your being here pretending to be human.

Re-assessing Your Life 

We are bringing this up because the majority of you will choose to stay. Whatever your choice is, it is neither right nor wrong. You are on the planet of free choice and we honor you. If you come Home tomorrow you will be celebrated, but it does not make any difference how long you stay, dear ones. That is up to you. Many of you are becoming excited at the possibility of carrying more light and spirit in your own body, while you are still incarnate.

What takes place here when you go through these Phantom Deaths? Whether they are something severe or just a momentary close call in traffic, your life will re-set. When that happens, you will look back at your life and try to determine the path. You will start to re-member everything, going through old memories and ideas, even tossing out your old photography books.

You will look at each part of your life to re-visit it the same way that you do if you cross over and go Home, except you will not have the photography books at Home. That is the biggest difference but that is exactly what you do when you go Home; you re-assess your entire experience and re-member every part of this. You will decide when you go Home which parts you are complete with, which parts you wish to come back in with, or if you are complete all together. It is entirely up to you, for there is no one who judges you.

You are on the free choice planet which is an emulation of Home but we ask you to do the same here. For those of you who stay, do exactly the same thing. Re-look at everything in your life…every relationship, every job you have taken, your purpose for being here, and your passions whatever they are.

These are the times to re-anchor on planet Earth. If you wish to go you will be celebrated, and you will also find it much easier than you thought. The reality is the transition Home is only difficult if you do not know what to expect.

Once you are aware of the transitions it becomes a joyous ride, an energy travel from one dimension to the next. Most of the challenges of transitioning from one area to the other are simply because people go into fear. What happens when a creator being goes into fear? It is then that they create their greatest fears and that loop takes some time to get rid of. For those of you who are familiar with it, you pass very easily and comfortably, then you move forward very quickly.

You return Home and you acclimate to Home. And for those of you who are staying, dare to allow yourself to experience it by taking some alone time, because each of you will need it. You will need to re-assess your place on planet Earth, understand why you came here in the first place, and whether that purpose is still valid or you wish to re-align your purpose for being here.

At the same time, you have an opportunity to re-visit every part of your existence. How you have interacted and the relationships you created will come under scrutiny at this point. We tell you, dear ones, it is not right or wrong.

Some of you will say, “Well, I can see how I would have a relationship with my lover, my husband or my wife. But what about children? How will my relationships with children change?” It’s very simple. You are moving into an empowered society, so everything must change including your relationships with your children and the long-term commitments that many of you have made. These are exciting times, dear ones, because their relationship to planet Earth is changing as well.

The Physical Body is Changing 

You are starting to grasp the higher truths of your human experience. It is a re-membering in many areas, because your spirit is not of the density: Your spirit is truly you. It is the core personality that you carried in for eons of time and not just on planet Earth.

Now you have decided to make this decision consciously instead of wiping out planet Earth and humanity, then starting over again. You literally are changing this day to day and we are so excited to watch it. We can see the challenges that you go through and when you feel lost, but we also see who you really are. We love you more than you know. You have already changed All That Is; now you have the opportunity to re-set your energy and put things into motion here so that you can step forward.


As a newly empowered human, you will carry much more of your own light and be able to grow in that direction. Right now, dear ones, if someone were to step fully into light body and the world, it would be very challenging because the collective vibration of humanity still does not support it. You would find that lightbody would have huge sensitivities. That is the reason you have so many allergies and similar challenges.

You do have your pollution ever since you have been burning the fossil fuels and your Industrial Revolution. However, you also have that ability to change that. The physical body is changing, experiencing a sensitivity level that you never knew before. Currently about 20% of your planet is now allergic to gluten, something you should all be easily adapted to.

As you incorporate more light into the body, some of these things will have to shift and your growers are beginning to change their thinking of this. Your grocery stores have already adapted somewhat to the new needs of humanity. More will be coming and you will find rapid changes happening during these times.

The Grand Re-set of Humanity 

This is a time of re-set, the grand reset of humanity. The change of the inbreath and the outbreath is taking place and what every human on planet Earth is facing right now. Along with it you have the opportunity to stay or go if you choose. No one is holding you here. If you decide to stay you will re-evaluate everything and feel free to do so. You are relieved of your contracts, even though most of you do not know it. You are re-setting new contracts, so dare to create conscious contracts on your planet. When you meet someone with which you have set up a contract on the other side of the veil, there is a natural pull to come into that contract in some way.

Most of those have been released, but that is very frustrating for some of you because you are looking for your mate whom you have contracts with. We tell you, dear ones, that many of them will still be chosen; they simply will not have quite the same pull that they had before.

Things that you had to settle, such as karmic contracts, have been completely released as far as the magnetism goes. That does not mean that when you come in contact with someone you do not feel a karmic bond of some sort.

You may even wish to clear it, but that is up to you. Does it need to be done for you to be successful on Earth? Dear ones, you have already been successful on Earth. That is what we are here to share with you. You have won the game and now you are building a whole new Earth. We are incredibly excited because this one will be in much more harmony with Home, with where you are from. It gives you the ability to hold more of your creative powers than ever before.

We tell you, dear ones, the movement back into light body for all of humanity can be especially difficult for some. Help the others, for that is why you came and why many of you are here right now, to be of service in this grand transition and re-set of humanity.

You think of us as watching from above; we actually are not above. It is fascinating that you think we are up because heaven is not up, dear ones, it is everywhere. You get that when you are children, awakening inside of a physical body when you are lying on your back or being held by a parent. Looking up to see the world, you gained from that all goodness comes from above. You are such wonderful beings.

We cannot wait to see what this new game grows into. We are directly behind you all the way trying to open the doors easily for you, trying to make your life a little more comfortable. You do not need to struggle the way you did in the old energy. The path of least resistance will appear very quickly. Allow it to be. Let go of those things that you are holding onto for the sake of holding on and allow yourself to be re-set and repositioned. This is the new world and you are very much a part of it.

It is with the greatest of honor that we ask you to treat each other with respect. Nurture one another every way that you can. It is why you came. Know that it is a brand new game that you are playing dear ones. And play well together.
Espavo.

The word Espavo is an early Lemurian greeting : “Thank You for Taking Your Power"

Voices of the Sacred Feminine Edited by Reverend Dr. Karen Tate


VSF Anthology Front Cover"Edited by Rev. Dr. Karen Tate  and featuring the voices of some of the most well-known advocates of the sacred feminine, this anthology highlights the important work that has been done and insight into the work that still remains. Starting with an essay by Amy Peck, MA (aka Amalya) of the Goddess Studio, the book first defines the paradigm of the sacred feminine: one which “restores the balance of the spiritual, cultural, and pragmatic relationship between Feminine/Masculine, Mother/Father, Women/Men and Earth/Spirit ideals.” From there, the book shows the myriad and creative ways that men and women are bringing about change in the world, whether through ritual, education, publishing, media outlets, environmental activism, or political change.
Many readers will recognize the names of several of the book’s contributors. Reverend Selena Fox of Circle Sanctuary makes an early appearance to introduce us to Lady Liberty – the Goddess of Freedom – and her many incarnations through time. An interview with Starhawk offers the opportunity to learn about her writing and work in permaculture as a means to change. Reverend Patrick McCollum speaks to the importance of breaking down class divisions and creating avenues for partnership and conversation. Gus diZerega makes a call to Pagans to vote Democratic, arguing that the Republican party’s assault on women is an affront to spiritual paths that venerate the Goddess.

The evidence of patriarchy, a system that gives control and power to men, is overwhelming. In her piece “Sekhmet: Powerful Woman,” Candace C. Kant of Cherry Hill Seminary and Goddess Ink points out:
…War is an ongoing fact of life. Poverty is endemic to almost all societies to a greater or lesser degree. The climate is warming, the waters are polluted and our land is soaked with deadly chemicals.Commercial agricultural areas have a continual haze in their air, the result of toxic pesticides and fertilizers, and this air is breathed by living beings, while the food that is produced in this way is fed to our children. We are eating genetically modified food with no idea of how that will affect us. Species are being extinguished at an alarming rate. The top soil is disappearing. Human rights are suppressed. Animals are tortured than slaughtered. Women are subjected to rape and what is euphemistically called ‘domestic violence,’ a clever way to hide the reality of many women’s lives… (p. 46)
The contributors of this book contend that these global problems are not separate and distinct issues, but rather they are all symptoms of the subjugation of the Goddess to the God. In her piece titled “Honoring Goddesses Reawakens Women-Honoring Multiculturalism,” Elizabeth Fisher explains:
Patriarchal religions… often suffer from a split between matter and spirit. These religions honor a male god –a father – with no female aspect of the godhead. Spirit is often perceived as limited by the body. Nature is a demon to be overpowered, contained, and re-directed. As a result, around the globe we are struggling with violence, wanton destruction of ecosystems, a social climate of disrespect for women’s rights, and over-production of goods at the expense of service and creative expression. Much of this results from a profound feeling of human alienation from nature. Death, if we are lucky, is an escape to Heaven after living a pure life untainted by the realities and callings of nature. (p. 125)
Many of the writers call upon everyone to look at what religion teach us about God and Goddess, and to consider how this shapes our relationship to nature, life, and the qualities we perceive as “feminine” vs “masculine.” While the Abrahamic faiths arguably have more work to do than other religions, the Goddesses of the monotheistic traditions, such as Sophia, Lilith, and the Virgin Mary, are not alone in their suppression.
As psychotherapist and author Rev. Shirley Ann Ranck Ph.D. points out, the story of Persephone and Demeter changed following the introduction of patriarchy to ancient Greece. Whereas early stories about Persephone speak to her decision to descend on her own merit and accord, later versions have her kidnapped and forced into the underworld and into a marriage with her captor. Some say her father, Zeus, was even complicit in her abduction. Her mother, rather than grieving her daughter’s decision, becomes angry and bitter and curses the earth. In her piece titled “Persephone Returns: Worshipping the Divine Mother and Daughter,” Dr. Ranck challenges us to ask, what impact does this newer story have on relationships with our mothers? With our Goddesses? With nature? What influence does it have on our beliefs about the “nature” of men and women?
In the forward, Ms. Tate states that a paradigm shift is in the making.  However, those who subscribe to the ideals of the sacred feminine are what she refers to as the cognitive minority. As Tate points out, all important and significant changes occur over time, as ideas are shared, ridiculed, rejected, reconsidered, and finally accepted as true. A shift in consciousness is needed to restore balance to humanity, and the Earth requires that we each use our own unique strengths to create waves. This collection will inspire and energize many to find their own way to tilt the world toward the ideals of the Sacred Feminine.

Elohim; Magdalen as Temple Priestess; "Mary of the Magdala" "Mary of the Goddess Temple" ; the Goddess priestesses were titled "Sacred Prostitutes,"

"The Hebrew word used for "God" in Genesis is Elohim, the plural of Eloah, a feminine title for the Goddess. Eloah (sometimes spelled Elat) is the female "half" of El. This Hebrew Goddess in Genesis is Asherah, the Shekinah, the Lady, speaking with Her mate.

They agree to create, and so here we are. Perhaps a little sex magic is used in their grand creation project, who knows? It would be logical for the Divine to have intimate physical relations, since they made us such wonderfully sexual beings. We should never feel ashamed of, nor try to suppress, our sexual natures.

When two people, committed to each other and to Goddess & God, join in sexual communion they are actually performing an honoring, a ceremony of worship toward the Divine Couple. They are the great original Masculine and Feminine. They wish to channel into, and through men and women of their creation. You and your partner might try channeling the Lady and Lord the next time you are intimate.

Many ancient religions, including the Greeks, believed that heaven is a male God who "covers" the feminine earth, Gaia in an intimate embrace.  The earth, thus regularly impregnated, bears fruit.

Great symbolism, there. It's sexual again-----but we can handle it!"

"Magdalen as Temple Priestess

Four pieces of Gospel evidence strongly point to Mary Magdalen as a temple priestess of the Goddess. The first is her title "Magdalen," almost identical to "Magdala," noted earlier to be the name of the triple-towered temple of the Goddess Mari-Anna-Ishtar (D). Literally, "Mary of the Magdala" signifies "Mary of the Goddess Temple." Christian tradition has said that Mary is of the town "Magdala" or "Migdal," which was known as "The Village of Doves," a place where sacred doves were bred for the Goddess temple (F). In either case, two threads of strong symbolism link the name Magdalen to contemporary Goddess worship.

Next, Mary is known as a prostitute, just as the Goddess priestesses were titled "Sacred Prostitutes," although a more recent and accurate translation titles them "Sacred Women" or "hierodulae" (B, p. 29). Such prostitutes were considered evil by Jewish leaders of the time. That Jesus/Yeshua would associate with such a woman would indeed invoke the scorn of his disciples, as is recorded in the New Testament.

Magdalen as Papess Tarot Card by Robert PlaceSt. Mary Magdalen

Thirdly, Mary Magdalen is identified in Mark and Luke as the woman who was possessed by seven demons, which Yeshua cast out of her. The seven demons were a symbolic part of a temple ritual known as "The Descent of Inanna," one of the most ancient ceremonies known, recorded in the Epic of Gilgamesh (G). This ritual was known to be practiced in the Jerusalem temple of Mari-Anna-Ishtar (D,E,F *).

The last, and perhaps strongest, piece of evidence is the anointing of Yeshua with the sacred oil, an event which (uncharacteristically) was recorded in all four New Testament Gospels, pointing to its significance. The anointing of the Jesus' head with oil (as described in Mark 14:3-4) is an unmistakable symbol of The Sacred Marriage, a ceremony performed by temple priestesses (B).

Magdalen as the Bride of Christ

Mary Magdalen was said to have been the Bride of Christ. Many of the Gnostic Gospels (revered early on in the Christian Church and later thrown out of the cannon) portray Mary Magdalen as Christ's Most Beloved Disciple, reporting that Jesus often kissed her on the mouth and called her "Woman Who Knows All." 

Other disciples went to her for Christ's teachings after he died (A). She is portrayed as sitting at Jesus' feet to listen to his teachings (Luke 10:38-42) and also as anointing his feet with oil and drying them with her hair (John 11:2, 12:3). 

Three of the New Testament Gospels report that Mary Magdalen was at the foot of the cross, and all four Gospels note she was present at the tomb. The Gospel of John notes that after the resurrection, Christ appeared to Mary Magdalen first. Mary Magdalen is mentioned in the New Testament more often by far that Mother Mary.

In The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, Starbird presents a very strong case that Mary Magdalen was perceived by many Christians (up until the 14th or 15th Century) to be the Bride of Christ, who later bore his child. Just as the High Queen Mariamne was known to be a temple priestess, Starbird presents evidence that Mary Magdalen was a princess of Bethany. 

This Mary of Bethany (sister to Lazarus and Martha) was of the line of Benjamin. She was wedded to Yeshua, of the line of David, in order to fulfill the ancient prophecy that a Son of David would rule Jerusalem and a long period of peace would follow."

the Sacred Feminine

"There are several female Deities that can lay claim to the title Christian goddess.  Mary, the Mother of Jesus/Yeshua, first comes to mind.

There is Mary Magdalene the "Goddess in the Gospels" the Church refused to acknowledge as the wife of Yeshua and probably co-Messiah. "Mary" is a Greek pronunciation of the Hebrew name Miriam or Miriamne. There are many theories about this name, such as Mary might not even be a name, but a title meaning Priestess of Goddess.

Many theologians and scholars believe the Holy Spirit written as, Pneuma in Greek everytime it appears in the New Testament, is a feminine being.

Note that Pneuma is a neuter word in Greek, but in Hebrew the word Ruah (Spirit) and in Aramaic the word Shekinah (Presence) are feminine words and imply a feminine divine presence.

The Holy Spirit is possibly a Christian Goddess, not a mysterious invisible member of an all-male Trinity "club."  Or more provocatively, maybe there is a Feminine Trinity of God-the-Mother (Sophia and Mary?), God-the-Daughter (Mary Magdalene) and Goddess-the-Spirit-Presence (Shekinah, Ruah). The Holy Spirit appears at Yeshua's baptism in the form of a dove.  The dove has long been a symbol of the Goddess in the Ancient Near East, and was never used to symbolize any male Being or God.

We must also look in the Old Testament, the Hebrew Bible, and consider the Goddess Sophia.  Her name means "Wisdom."  She is the Goddess of Wisdom referred to repeatedly in scripture as the wife of God-the-Father.  See Proverbs, Song of Songs, (also called Song of Solomon) in the Hebrew Bible, and see the Book of Sirach and the Book of Wisdom in the Apocrypha found in the center of any Catholic Bible.

Here is an excerpt from "The Decline of the Feminine and the Cult of Mary at http://eapi.admu.edu.ph/eapr98/kath2.htm 

In Greco-Roman Christianity, probably because of the dangers of Gnosticism, the biblical images of God as female were soon suppressed within the doctrine of God. God as Wisdom, Hokmah in Hebrew, or Sophia in Greek, a feminine form, was translated by Christianity into the Logos concept of Philo, which is masculine and was defined as the Son of God. The Shekinah, the theology of God’s mediating presence as female, was de-emphasized; and God’s Spirit Ruah, a feminine noun in Hebrew, took on a neuter form when translated into Greek as Pneuma.

The Vulgate translated Ruah into Latin as masculine, Spiritus. God’s Spirit, Ruah, which at the beginning of creation brings forth abundant life in the waters, makes the womb of Mary fruitful. In spite of the reality of the caring, consoling, healing aspects of divine activity, the dominant patriarchal tradition has prevailed, resulting in seeing the female as the passive recipient of God’s creation; and the female is expressed in nature, church, soul, and finally Mary as the prototype of redeemed humanity.

Because God as father has become an over literalized metaphor, the symbol of God as mother is eclipsed. The problem lies not in the fact that male metaphors are used for God, but that they are used exclusively and literally. Because images of God as female have been suppressed in official formulations and teaching, they came to be embodied in the figure of Mary who functioned to reveal the unfailing love of God.

Visit our Hebrew Goddess page for more information on Asherah, Shekinah, and Sophia, goddesses once worshipped by the Children of Israel as the wife of their Creator-god, Yahweh."

The Maiden

The Maiden signifies youth, the springtime of life when all is in bloom, the excitement of the chase, and the newness of life and magick. In human age, she would be between puberty and her twenties. She is innocent in some ways, but also a seductress who recognizes the power of her sexuality. She has no mate. Maiden goddesses are often associated with flowers.

The Mother stands for nurturing, caring, fertility; she is a woman in the prime of her life and at the peak of her power. She protects her own and will ensure that justice is done and done well. This woman is usually mated. In human age, she would be seen as a woman in her thirties to mid-forties. Mother is ripe, full-breasted, at the peak of her womanly powers. She rears children and nurtures others. Mother is Life.

She stands at the door to the dimension of death. In human years, she is approximately 45 or older. The Crone is the most difficult of the three to place in human age. Crone is the benevolent grandmother you can count on for sage advice but she is also the Dark Goddess, a hag who can sometimes be frightening. Crone is the Reaper and Life-in-Death. In many ways she is even more powerful than Mother. There are no secrets from Crone, who is old age, experience, accumulated wisdom, and death. Crone goddesses are often associated with mills and cemeteries.

Wicca is an open religion and does not wish to force anyone to convert to its practice.

"Many people who come home to Wicca discover that the Wicca is all about connecting with the God and Goddess, within and all aroun
d us. It's true that many women and men who were raised in Christian homes and churches come to Wicca with somewhat of a fear, as they feel that if they worship and practice something other than Christianity, that they will go to Hell.

To clear things up a bit, Wiccans believe that there is two parts to God or the universal being, if you will. There is a female part and a male part, and they work together to form a higher power. Did it seem like having a male God and no female part to God just didn't make sense to you? Maybe that's why you came home to Wicca and the old ways, things just didn't add up or you just never connected with God in the way you were told to.

That's okay! Here's the thing, even if you want to hold onto the idea and notion of who God is as you were taught, you can do that in Wicca. There aren't any restrictions as to what God or Goddess you connect with. If you want to worship God and Mary as the Mother Goddess, maybe this would fit more for you if you were raised Catholic. Wicca is an open religion and does not wish to force anyone to convert to its practice. It is merely around for people to come home to, if they so wish and if it is the correct path for them.

As far as Gods and Goddesses go, Wiccans believe in a huge range of deities. Some (including myself) don't give their deities a name or an association, as they feel this limits and inhibits a connection. However, many others do find a particular deity or deities to connect with that furthers them along their spiritual journey. In this hub, I will introduce just a few of the many Wiccan Gods and Goddesses waiting to be discovered and tapped into.

Wiccan Goddesses

One cornerstone of the Wiccan religion is a unified belief in the Goddess. The idea of a Mother Goddess and Goddesses in general dates back thousands of years, to the very beginnings of the human race. In fact, these statues are generally known as "Venuses" and include a very well-known, full-figured female figurine without a face known as the "Venus of Willendorf" (pictured to the right). These Venuses have been discovered in recent times and have been dated as far back as 35,000 years ago. The stifling in the belief of a Mother Goddess took presidency with the rise of Christianity and Islam, both of which focus majorly on male Gods inadvertently denying the existence of a female aspect of God.

Now that you know a little bit of history concerning the belief in the Goddess and Goddesses, let's talk about some of the many Wiccan Goddesses to choose from in the Wicca.

∞ Celtic Wiccan Goddesses ∞

Many of the Wiccan Goddesses celebrated and worshiped in Wicca stem from the ancient Celtic peoples' beliefs.

Brighid, a goddess of fertility and healing, is one of the most well-known Irish Celtic Goddesses, as she was passed along from a Goddess into Christianity as a Saint.

Catholics still recognize Brighid as a Saint, but many Wiccans worship her as a Wiccan Goddess in her original, natural Pagan form. She is also said to be a Wiccan Goddess of protection and poetry. Interestingly, Brighid was a triune Goddess, which means that she formed one part of a Trinity (sound familiar?). Her three parts consisted of Brighid the Physician, Brighid the smith, and Brighid the poetess. Read more about her story in books or online.

Rhiannon is another Celtic Wiccan Goddess, but lesser known and worshiped. She was the Welsh Celtic Goddess of the hunt, of horses, of strength, and of the moon. Her name was derived from the meaning "Queen of the Fairies", as she was first a princess in the realm of the fay but gave up her fairy existence in order to become the wife of a human prince.

Her story is a very inspiring one, which can be read in my hub about Rhiannon (posted in the links at the end of this hub). She is usually depicted as a beautiful red-haired woman with a horse and birds surrounding her. For awhile I had a statue of Rhiannon on my altar, and she brought me great strength in some of my lowest times.

Also on the Celtic Wiccan Goddess list is Morrigan, Arianrhod, Shannon, Cailleach, Danu, Brigantia, and the list continues.

∞ Egyptian Wiccan Goddesses ∞

Have you had a connection with Ancient Egyptian lore and culture? Maybe you'd be more inept to following an Egyptian Wiccan Goddess pantheon. Many Wiccans look to the likes of Isis, Ma'at, and Sekhmet for inspiration and guidance in their rituals and everyday lives.

Isis is the Great Mother Goddess of Egyptian culture, considered to be the mother of nature and all things magical. She carries an ankh in her hand and is said to also be the Goddess of children and ritual.

Ma'at is the Egyptian Wiccan Goddess known to be the ruler and aid of justice and truth. She brings about order and balance to the world, both spiritual and mundane realms. Weighing the souls of the dead in the underworld, Ma'at would determine whether the dead's souls were worthy enough to continue on in the afterlife.

In addition to these Egyptian Wiccan Goddesses, you could look into Sekhmet, Bastet, Hathor, Nut, and Nekhbet.

∞ Ancient Greek & Ancient Roman Wiccan Goddesses ∞

Before Rome was turned into a Christian state by Constantine, the ancient Romans were Pagan and worshiped many Goddesses. The ancient Greeks also had their own line of Goddesses, which eventually sort of merged or meshed along with the Roman Goddesses at one point.

Diana is an ancient Roman Goddess who is now worshiped by a type of Wiccans known as Dianic Wiccans. She was the Goddess of the moon and of the hunt and was a fierce warrior. Diana is associated with oak trees and virginity, and represents the strong feminine aspect of life.

Hecate is known to be one scary Goddess; however, there is dark and good in nature and Hecate is also both dark and light. A Greco-Roman Goddess, some Wiccans on the more Gothic side tend to follow Hecate as their Wiccan Goddess. She is the Wiccan Goddess of the crossroads (between life and death), magic, and witchcraft.

Astarte is another well known and followed ancient Greek Wiccan Goddess, and also Demeter.

In addition to Egyptian, Celtic, Roman & Greek Wiccan Goddesses to connect with, more and more Wiccans are joining the Wicca and taking up a connection with Goddesses of the Native American beliefs (Spider Woman and Sedna), Polynesian Wiccan Goddesses (Hina and Whaitiri), Hindu Goddesses such as Kali, and also Christian Goddesses.

Wait...Christian Goddesses, you say? Yes, why not? If Catholics can pray to Mary the Mother of God, why can't Wiccans pray to the same woman but consider her at the same level of God himself? She would then be elevated to her appropriate place, as Mother Goddess. A resurgence of Mary Magdalene connections have also been made in recent times among Pagans and Wiccans alike.

As amazing and liberating as it is for new Wiccans to be able to celebrate the Mother Goddess, the female form of God in all her previously-hidden glory, we must not forget that there is always a balance in nature. The Goddess wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the God."

Spiritual and other Powers of Jasper

Jasper was a favorite in the ancient world.

Jasper is a stone of protection. It protects
against negativity and aids in grounding one to
the stabilizing energies of the earth. Jasper can
be used to align the energy of the chakras and
to integrate the attributes of the chakras, such
that astral excursions can be affected.
Jasper balances the Yin-Yang energies and also
balances the physical, intellectual and emotional
bodies with their etheric energies. Jasper
stabilizes the aura, providing a cleansing effect
to smooth dysfunctional energies and eliminating
negative energies.

Jasper was worn by native shaman for protection
during healings and dream quests. It holds an
aspect of solar energy and a connection to the
solar plexus chakra which helps shaman in the
magical practices.

For Native American Indians it
is a sacred stone that is used for performances
of and adherence to the “old ways” rituals.
The ancients used Jasper as a sacred,
protective stone and as an aid for safe astral
travel (Jasper was placed on the heart and navel
chakras before astral travel). It has also been
used for dowsing. Jasper has been used by both
priests, kings and in the breast plate of the high
priest.

The ancient Egyptians wore Jasper scarabs as
amulets, and both Indians in Asia as well as
Native Americans see jasper as both a magical
rain stone and also a powerful healing stone.
Jasper was used in Ancient European times as a
“rain bringer” and it is interesting to note that the
word for jasper in some American Indian cultures
also meant, “Rain Bringer”.

Jasper needs direct contact with the skin, and
after each use, the stone should be cleaned under
running water.

Spider Jasper connects the
wearer with magic and the web of
life. Varieties of Brown Jasper help
keep you grounded. Jasper with
yellow color is used to assist and
protect during times of spiritual and
physical travel. Jasper with red color
is used for health and re-birth.

Brown Jasper

Brown Jasper will help for centering and
grounding, especially after a taxing psychic or
spiritual work. It is highly recommended for
persons that tend to live with their head in the
clouds and have a need for grounding and
protection.

Jasper is known as the “supreme nurturer”.  It sustains and supports through times of stress, and brings tranquility and wholeness.  Jasper provides protection and absorbs negative energy.  It balances yin and yang.  Jasper clears electromagnetic and environmental pollution, including radiation.  It encourages honesty with one's self.  Provides courage to assertively tackle problems.  Aids quick-thinking and promotes organisational abilities.  Jasper stimulates the imagination and transforms ideas into action.  Prolongs sexual pleasure.  It supports during prolonged illness and re-energises the body.

Nurturing

Jasper is known metaphysically as a stone of gentleness, comfort, and relaxation. When its protective energies are also considered, it's no wonder jasper is sometimes called the "nurturing stone."

Jasper has other facets to its energy properties, too, such as prosperity, gardening and agriculture. Historically these were related concepts when wealth was more often counted in agricultural and pastoral terms, but jasper does have prosperity vibrations in other areas as well.

Spiritual and Psychic Properties

Psychically, jasper is used to assist with astral travel. It brings a gentle but unassailable protection to the traveler and the silver cord.

It is also a powerful protection stone in general and can be used in protection magic, in talismans and other places you want a strong but gentle protection.

In some cultures, particularly Native American, jasper is traditionally used for rain making.

Jasper is used for bringing beauty, into life and specific situations. Beauty brought by jasper can be striking inner beauty as well as external beauty. This is gaining it the name "make up stone" for the way it can bring beauty to people outside as well as inside.

Jasper balances yin/yang energies. This is helpful in many areas of life and can bring healing, peace, and ease.

Mental and Emotional Properties

In the mental and emotional realms, Jasper is primarily about peace and relaxation. It enhances one's ability to relax and come to peace even in difficult situations. This helps bring in wholeness, emotional healing, kindness, and comfort.

Jasper also brings peace to endings, whether it be the end of a relationship, the end of a situation, or something else. Because of this, in addition to its general energy of peace, it is a good stone for healing grief.

Jasper is a wonderful stone for working with emotional disturbances and trauma. It can bring deep emotional healing in these areas and lead to a sense of tranquility in the present in spite of past or current disturbances.

Smoothing out and enhancing mental processes is another quality of jasper. This can help in all mental endeavors whether it be learning, work, or something else requiring mental effort. Alleviating difficulties with mental processes can also assist in restraining desires that might lead a person into dangerous situations.

Physical Conditions Properties:

In the physical realm, jasper is used in crystal healing particularly  for the liver, kidney, gallbladder, stomach and intestinal problems including heartburn, IBS, and acid reflux, hallucinations, longevity, epilepsy and seizures. It is also used to enhance healing of any kind as well as pain relief. Note: Healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing, not prescription or healthcare information.

The meaning of jasper stone is in the essence of its energy. Jasper is a very nourishing, warm and protective stone.


The energy that jasper provides is full of warmth. This stone helps you understand that you can stay committed and determined without exhausting yourself or ruining your health. Jasper creates a full circle around your body where both yin (feminine) as well as yang (masculine) energies are balanced and supportive of each other.

Jasper is especially helpful for people who easily burn out. It will help achieve a subtle balance between giving and receiving; and can teach how to stay balanced and replenish the inner energy resources. It is an earthy stone that warms one's soul and clears one's mind.

Spiritual Aspects of and Powers of Torquoise

The Healing Energies, Metaphysical Properties, Legendary Uses, and Meaning of Turquoise

Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.
