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,

Hi Jaime. Yes, I am hearing the calling of the wisdom from the holy void of knowing. Thank you for the reminding. And I have also signed up. Looks like a great line-up. Much Love, Sara

Mmmm, love that Sara – ‘wisdom from the holy void of knowing’. Yes, it is. I’m glad you signed up for Celebrate the Goddess; it looks like a good group and also feels like perfect timing to be focusing the attention and being on the Holy Feminine!

congrats on the goddess event Jamie! I signed up and am very excited for you and to hear you speak. Life is all about signs and patterns but it is up to us to recognize and acknowledge them.
July 14, 2015 at 2:36 pm
Thank you, Linda. It looks like a good gathering of women sharing their (our) experiences with the Holy Divine Feminine. 🙂 And yes indeed, life is surely about signs and patterns and learning to recognize and follow where they lead (or lead away from!).
Lots of love and hope you’re well,

Sounds to have been an interesting event and set of synchronisities which led you along the Goddess path of discovering who you needed to connect to.
I believe totally in ‘Signs’ and following them.. I was led here today 🙂 and have missed my catch ups here Jamie.
Love your new logo photo too 🙂
July 14, 2015 at 2:34 pm
Thank you, Sue. I hope all’s well there where you are! And I too have learned to look for the signs and clues … the ‘shiny breadcrumbs’ … along the way. It’s a language of its own, isn’t it? And one that our ancestresses knew well. 🙂
July 14, 2015 at 6:25 pm
Yes all is well thank you Jamie.. taking time out to enjoy Summer has been good. x x x

What is the Persephone Underworld Journey of Divine Feminine awakening?
July 14, 2015 at 2:33 pm
That’s an excellent question, Rose of Spirit Garden! 🙂
I definitely connect the Black Madonna with that journey of re-awakening into our ‘deep Feminine’ nature and gifts, and that seems to always include Underworld Journeying (dark night of the soul, life-altering transformative ‘events’, deconstruction of life as we knew it, etc.). Persephone and Innana mythic-stories speak to this.
I’ll write a new post on just that, since it seems timely and fitting. I’ve alluded to the Underworld Journey here and there in Sophia’s Children, but it’s a good idea to go directly at it … thank you for asking the question! Stay tuned …

I look forward to the post.
July 15, 2015 at 2:57 pm
It’s time I did something like this on the Web – will probably sign up depending if I am going to be around, and whether timings fit at all with GMT. It sounds great, and I have a particular interest in Inanna as well as the Black Madonna. Thanks for telling us about this, Jamie!!
July 15, 2015 at 3:01 pm
You’re welcome, Anne. And I think that people who sign up can listen to the conversation audios for a period of time after the scheduled interview, in case the timing doesn’t line up to ‘listen live’ as it were. Kimberly likely includes that on the summary page (I’ll double check, but I’m thinking that’s the case). Love, Jamie

Funny that. Over the past two months my own Black Goddess has been making Her presence more palpable. What’s more, I’ve read several blogposts in which others have said the same thing (mind you, I’ve been looking for such posts lately – maybe there’s always a few about if you pay attention).
I wonder if they’re up to something.
July 15, 2015 at 3:06 pm
Well, very interesting that you’ve been sensing Her presence more-than-usual as well. And I’d guess you’re right … they’re up to something. 😉 We’ll keep each other posted. I did read a post yesterday about five activations of the 0 Virgo point, where Regulus currently is … associated with the Feminine … between now and Autumn (northern hemisphere Autumn), so perhaps something’s stirring and the Dark Feminine (whole Feminine, to me) is part of the medicine. xoxo Jamie

Congrats on taking up the challenge of a tele-conference. You will enrich it greatly, and be enriched by the experience yourself.
Full speed ahead!!
** loving the term, The Great She, btw. I’ve put it away in the toolkit of my mind.
o and om.
July 16, 2015 at 2:43 pm
Thank you, o and om. And ‘Great She’ … I love that one, too. When it arrived, I felt it instantly. Plus there’s a bit of fun and magic to it; a sense of humor there. 🙂 Love to you and Odie. Jamie
July 17, 2015 at 8:46 pm
I feel the same way, J.

So glad that I unburied this post from my still overflowing inbox in time to register!
July 29, 2015 at 3:04 pm
I’m glad, too, Joanne. And I’ll be mentioning the Celebrate the Goddess cyber/tele/virtual gathering again, too … a good reminder! Love, Jamie
