It’s Thanksgiving week here in the United States, though the underlying meaning can be summoned up at any time, in any place.

Of course, I’m thinking about the soon-to-be-feasted-upon turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberries, Brussels sprouts, and other dishes traditional to the Northeastern U.S. Thanksgiving festival table.

At the same time — particularly given recent (or the latest) “vision shakeups” and cultural shockwaves — I’ll be making time to muse on and immerse myself in the vibe of the greater Spirit of the Season:

— The example that inspired the holiday — the immense generosity shown by the Wampanoag Indians to the struggling, starving Puritan newcomers (despite the marked lack of generosity shown by many (though not all) of the Puritan newcomers towards the local the Indigenous peoples after that); and

— The yummy, delicious, frequency elevating and energy restoring values or virtues of generosity, graciousness, hospitality, welcome (and one hopes it’s a warm one), and plenty (in its varied forms).

Those values and virtues, the sharing of plenty, the spirit of ‘wild bounty’ and generosity, lead straight to what our ancestors associated with the Many Named Mother of All, Buon Dea, the ‘divine Feminine’ by whatever name she was known over eras and cultures (we each connect in the way we’re called).

The reclamation of the Feminine — right brain, heart centeredness, whole-seeing, Medial nature, and other gifts — is very much a part of the shift of consciousness, the shift into wholeness, that’s underway (or possible for us).

If you’re touching in to the deeper meaning, rousing what Abraham Lincoln called ‘the better angels of our nature’, and exploring the Via Feminina or experiencing significant shifts, you’ll find more than a bit of rich inspiration and ‘guiding lanterns’ here in Sophia’s Children.

Here are a few starters from my previous Sophia’s Children posts, for immersing and drawing nourishment from this timeless wellspring of the re-emerging ‘Sacred Feminine’ and the long thread of ancestral Wisdom that we’re now re-weaving:

Transformation Fatigue & Keeping Heart

If your calling to the Way of the re-emerging Feminine and/or shifting consciousness inspires you to draw even more deeply, these and other Sophia’s Children posts point the way to others.
