The Feast and the New Greening (Freshly Re-Greened)

Nature Rx Part 1

Because this list of ‘side effects’ is much lovelier than the ones we see for most ‘prescription ads’. Very amusing. Thanks, Laura, for sharing it.

The Other Road – A Father’s Day Solstice Musing

“I took the other road, all right, but only because it was the easy road for me, the way I wanted to go. If I’ve encountered some unnecessary resistance that’s because most of the traffic is going the other way.”... Continue Reading →

Subtle and Overt Attacks on the Goddess, Nature, and the Sacred Feminine

There are so many good points in this post from Laura Bruno, that rather than excerpt and link, I’ll just let you dive in and see for yourself.

I’ve noticed this very phenomenon she’s highlighting in recent weeks (and even months) as well, where even in the (so called) consciousness- and engaged-spirituality communities we see not-so-veiled attacks on the Divine Feminine.

So I don’t know what’s up with this trend (because we’ve been there, done that … not that it’s ever gone away). The re-emerging Feminine must really be gaining ground if such attacks are coming from these corners.

Fellow oracles, astro-intuitive kindreds, and keepers of the flame — what’s your sense and your observations?

Here’s Laura’s post – so important for all of us who have been devoted to reclaiming, embodying, and midwifing the re-emerging Feminine and also lifting the lid off the smear- and false-history campaigns (see the previous Sophia’s Children post, Un-Erasing ‘Women Who Know’ for more on that topic!).

Read on for Laura’s post, and share your thoughts.

Big Love,
Jamie

In an uncharacteristic pattern, I’ve been working on this post for a couple weeks. Normally, if I don’t finish in one go, then the post gets deleted or forever floats in limbo. I signed on yesterday with the intent to delete this one as too obvious, too alarmed, or too unnecessary. Then, I stumbled upon so many attacks on Nature, the Goddess and everything associated with the feminine that I realized I needed to finish this piece and post it. You see, the attacks weren’t just coming from men and the military industrial complex; they were also spouting from the mouths and keyboards of people who usually recognize and honor the Sacred and Divine Feminine, especially the Mother Goddess energies responsible for creation, seasons, nurturing, and growth. I post the following links as examples of just how insidious and desperate the attempts have become to eradicate the very principle of…

This is such a beautiful, verdant, lush setting for the Algiz (Elhaz) runic symbol! I work with Algiz quite a bit -- it symbolizes Divine protection and the blessing (and reminder) of Divine presence, and has the look of someone... Continue Reading →
