Meeting the Goddess Lilith

Many years ago I had an encounter with an owl that led me to the Goddess Lilith, catapulting me on the journey that has been my life these past 25 years. In that time, Lilith has been one of my main guides and allies. Can I tell you in one sentence what that means? No. It is too complex and revealing and anyway, the power would be lost in the telling. But I can tell you some things. And in that telling I can understand it better myself. Because that is the way story always works. And that is why we tell stories. Recently I began a class with a group of women around regaining our pure female...

Offerings You Can Make to the Earth at this Time of Discord in our Nation

In light of the discord that has been brought to the surface with the recent election results in the United States, many people are left wondering what they can do. I too have been listening for this. Since I work on the level of ritual, I have been doing many on my own, but today have been given the following to offer you. The more people who are willing to do these rituals, the better. Do as many as you can and spread the word if you feel so inclined. Rituals I am given to do are most often not what I would expect to receive when I sit down to ask. This I find encouraging, since I am aware...

The Sun—Protecting Ourselves from Grandeur and Overexposure

Membranes of Hope: Part 3 The Sun’s Largess In a divination carried out inquiring about the nature of the Sun, a group of colleagues and I were told it is up to us to protect ourselves from its largess. The Sun is the Sun. It cannot help how large it is. It cannot hide itself. It is aware of its size in relation to the other beings in its immediate surroundings, but there is nothing the Sun can do about it. The Sun can only be the Sun. The Sun said, “I cannot hide myself. Beings need protection from me.” And that is on the beings. It is up to us to put up the safeguards to protect ourselves...

Knowing the Library of Your Soul: The Key to Retaining Your Power

Membranes of Hope: Part 1 What is the Library of your Soul? Do you know it? Can you see it? What does it look like? Can you feel it? How does it feel? We each have this unique space within us. This space needs to be nurtured, protected, and cherished. It is yours alone. How do we attend to this precious interior space? Let me begin by referring to a woman who fought valiantly for her own: Virginia Woolf. Virginia Woolf and A Room of One’s Own Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) a writer, intellectual and feminist, who, in her seminal book, A Room Of One’s Own, wrote: “A woman must have money and a...
