Water Does Not Resist … and Other Water Wisdom

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and... Continue Reading →

Shining Heart: The Morning Star Rises in My Heart

The Theologian Walter Wink and others have spoken of The Third Way - a radical concept in our (too often) "either/or", win-lose culture. Some traditions refer to the Divine Spark or Inner Light within us, which is hidden from us,... Continue Reading →

The Wise-Woman Way of Mary Magdalene

July 22 is the historical feast day of Mary Magdalene, so it's very fitting to share this updated post from the early days of Sophia's Children. Not that we need confine such celebrations and honorings to one day. After all,... Continue Reading →

Reclaiming Wisdom: Medusa, Metis, Mehda

First question: How is the ancient (and timeless) notion of 'Sovereign Feminine Wisdom' connected to the energy, archetype, and story of Medusa - the 'gorgon-headed' one of myth? Second question: Why is this both timeless and very relevant right now,... Continue Reading →

What Makes a Mystic … and a Feminine Mystic?

What makes a "Feminine Mystic?" This is the question that writer Carl McColman asked Mirabai Starr, author, speaker, mystic, and translator of the mystics, in a Patheos interview. This is an excerpt from Starr's reply. "Mysticism is about a direct... Continue Reading →

Janus – Looking Back, Looking Forward + a 10-Year Anniversary

January is named for the Roman deity Janus, who stands with one face looking back, one face looking forward, but planted solidly right where he is at the moment. So it makes sense that Janus would be associated with transitions,... Continue Reading →

Perdita and Our Divine Gifts

This is such a beautiful and evocative painting from Sandys. I saw it when I was browsing images in my files and, though I wasn't aware at the time its connection with Winter and, in a way, the Spirit of... Continue Reading →

QuoteWorthy: “The older I become…”

Dream Idyll - A Valkyrie, 1902, by Edward Robert Hughes.
Dream Idyll – A Valkyrie, 1902, by Edward Robert Hughes.

Another ‘Tis the Time and Season‘ reflection, stirred and updated from the Sophia’s Children treasure-vaults (so very Uranus-Pluto!).

Whether we’re in the deep-Yin season of Winter, settling into night from day, or in a Winter-season in our own lifecycle journey, it’s always wise to honor the restoration that will otherwise stalk and have its way with us in other (usually less pleasant) ways.

Plus, Wisdom and Wisdom-sourced vision gestate from and are more easily called up in this season, and with the current archetypal energies in which we dance and swirl right about now.

Happy dancing, swirling, and deep restoration.

Big Love and Be Well,

Sophia's Children

Sybil, by the artist Edward Coley Burne-Jones Sybil, by the artist Edward Coley Burne-Jones

“The older I become,

the more I sense,

the less I speak,

the more I pray —

in ever so many ways.”

I included this wonderful reflection from Clarissa Pinkola-Estes’ book Untie the Strong Woman in a previous Sophia’s Children post you might enjoy:

Storms, Cycles & Black Madonnas

And other mentions of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes in my Reasserting Our Wildish Nature post, and in an homage to the honoring of Deep Yin and the Circadian Rhythms of Winter, in the Sophia’s Children treasure vaults.

A Musingly Yours,

Jamie
