These last two months or so, the Black Madonna started rising more prominently in my awareness again.

Not that she’s ever far away, but sometimes she rises to the surface and taps me on the shoulder with some synchronicities, and I know by now to pay closer attention to what else is unfolding.

I’ve learned to heed the tap, tap, taps and look for and follow the clues.

One of those ‘taps’ was meeting a Black Madonna kindred spirit via the late-April InterSpiritual gathering that took place locally (which I heard about just days before through another lovely synchronicity, and wrote about just following the gathering).

It turned out we shared a connection with another Black Madonna sister,  so I pulsed out an email to her, sharing about the synchronous connection, and learned that she, too, had noticed the Black Madonna coming up again in recent weeks. Tap tap.

Third, but certainly not least, was that I received an invitation to share a bit of my experience with the Black Madonna as part of the Celebrate the Goddess tele-virtual event that’ll be happening in August. Tap tap tap.

Though I’ve truly appreciated previous invitations, this is the first ‘tele-summit’ in all of these years that I felt compelled to accept the invitation to participate in, which is no small thing.

With the Black Madonna rising like she did to get my conscious attention, my sense is that it’ll be an important time to focus and stir and constellate the energy of the Divine Feminine, and things like my compadre Kim Wilborn’s Celebrate the Goddess gathering can help do just that — to remind us, and to help gather and focus energy for certain time periods.

So I’m happy to share it with you — have a look and sign up to receive the ‘intel’ and your FYIs for each of the Divine Feminine-centric interviews Kim will be doing, including the conversation Kim and I will be having together about the Black Madonna herself.

And of course, with the Great She front and center in my awareness, I’m listening closely and will be sharing some fresh musings about my own experience with the Black Madonna and the Persephone Underworld Journey of Divine Feminine awakening.

In the meanwhile, don’t forget to register (no fee) for the Celebrate the Goddess gathering so you’ll get the deets as they unfold, and visit the Black Madonna and Divine Feminine page here at Sophia’s Children to get that inspiration and deep, deep well of Divinely Feminine creative wellspring freshly stirring.

And if you have questions or curiosity about the Black Madonna, the Divine Feminine Initiation Journey (aka Persephone Underworld Journey), or the Divine Feminine?

As always, I invite you to post a comment or send me a direct email. It’s always lovely to be in conversation with you!

Many thanks and Big Love,

Jamie
