Sacred Sister

Sacred sister, keeper of the light
Your path is deep and full of might

I feel your strenght, your love and passion
You walk in grace, in heart and compassion

I bow to you my sacred sister
You chose to feel, to know, to listen

Behold your dream – your holy vision
divine guidance in your healing mission

Your deepest longing opened the portal
a force of love received by no mortal

A birth of divinity within your Being
Eternity Consciousness, Unity Seeing

I bow to you my sacred sister
You chose to feel to know to listen

Your magical wisdom and healing power
I receive and worship in deepest honor

I bow to you my sacred sister

Sacred Priestess of Magic

I am your sacred priestess of magic
I dance your dance of mystery
upon this holy earth

This is my prayer my only prayer

reveal to me your innermost secrets
anoint me as your holy bride
to serve and protect All life

This is my prayer my only prayer

to breathe in Oneness of Love
to shine the light of my Heart
within the light of Creation

that your Soul, your Divine Soul
sacred Earth Mother
be impregnated with Spirit

Embraced by your beloved, Mother
So your children may know the fullness
and holiness of this dance

This is my prayer my only prayer

I sing your song of creation
from deep within my heart
from deep within my womb

I am on my knees Majestic Mother
Return to us your Grace and Glory
So we may know life again as One

~ Ma Tara Palmo

Guru Within

I am emerging out of the luscious green jungle of Bali and feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to go on a much needed deep dive these past two months. Vippassana retreat and Bali silent retreat in contemplation, meditation, yoga, prayers and fire rituals was divine nectar for my heart.

I was meditating on the Kintamani mountain next to the active vulcano Mount Agung and in silent retreat next to the active vulcano Mount Batur. It was like Kali and Vajrayogini the Goddesses of transformation was swinging their swords of Radical Truth screaming WAKE UP sister..WAKE UP!!! Venus was retrograde and the blue moon was rising in the sky…aahhh YES! The whole universe conspired to make a massive shift, so I surrendered and let go gracefully.

Just before leaving for Bali I received an Owl statue for my birthday. They are the shamanic medicine animal for seeing through deception, what is normally hidden will be revealed and it kept showing itself several times in various shapes and sizes during this journey. Layers of the unconscious mind were pierced open in light, freeing me from some long held destructive patterns.

It was a great blessing to re-connect with Dharma through Vippassana retreat, I felt as if I was showered in grace directly by Lord Buddha. Buddhism was my first portals into spirituality about 20 years ago and now there is a deep sense of coming home to my roots. Beloved Yidam deity Tara Ma made herself very present with her endless love and compassion and I am feeling even more connected to this name given to me 14 years ago while taking refuge into Buddha, Dharma and Sangha with Kagyu master Ringu Tulku Ringpoche.

And now everything has changed. […]

Dakini

“On a secret level, she is seen as the manifestation of fundamental aspects of phenomena and the mind, and so her power is intimately associated with the most profound insights of Vajrayana meditation. In this her most essential aspect, she is called the formless wisdom nature of the mind itself.

On an inner, ritual level, she is a meditational deity, visualized as the personification of qualities of buddhahood. On an outer, subtle-body level, she is the energetic network of the embodied mind in the subtle channels and vital breath of tantric yoga.

She is also spoken of as a living woman: she may be a guru on a brocaded throne or a yogini meditating in a remote cave, a powerful teacher of meditation or a guru’s consort teaching directly through her life example. Finally all women are seen as some kind of dakini manifestation.”

~ Judith Simmer-Brown (from Dakini’s Warm Breath)

Holy Communion

There is an almost sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision.
The immense fulfilment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost impossible to describe.

Sacred Shakti

In the ancient tradition of Goddess worship known as Tantra, every woman in the world is perceived as an incarnation of Shakti.

The female body is seen as a sacred vessel, an expression of and receptacle of Divine energy.

Sacred Body Temple

“Here in this body are the sacred rivers: here are the sun and moon as well as all the pilgrimage places,  I have not encountered another temple as blissful as my own body”
– Saraha Doha, Tantric scripture

 

Devotion to Shiva

Humbled before your majestic vision
breathless by thine souls incision
With steel presence burning
enter my hearts deep yearning
 
An ache so deep for your passion
I surrender and beg compassion
Please.. take me, claim me deeply
I offer you my love completely
 
In your deep embrace I let go
ecstatic bliss and radiance flow
Inhaling God in every breath
we face our separate death
 
~ Ma Tara Palmo
 

Dakini

 ~ Dakini
Find her and play with her, and feel all the levels of her in us and in the world. We need her. We need the dakini energy, for us to survive, for the earth to survive. Why do we need it? Because we have become so materialistic, so caught in speed. Faster, faster, faster.

The dakini is all about the play. It’s not ordinary play. It’s the play that pulls the rug out from under you. That moment when you’re there with no ground is such an opportunity, and that’s the dakini.”
~ Lama Tsultrim Allione

Sacred Union

Sacred Union

As the Divine feminine and Conscious masculine awakens in our awareness, we are birthing a new world through deeply understanding and bringing harmony to our mistakes. Not through being a victim and accusing what has happened, but through reconciliation and forgiveness.

The veil of ignorance has been thick and dense in these times. In forgetting the sacredness of the feminine AND the sacred masculine in ourselves and others we have acted from a place of distortion of the two as submission/victimhood and abuse of power/control. It has been a time of great pain and destruction for humanity and the planet.

Through healing our wounds, deeply honoring our hearts true calling and remembering the sacredness of the earth, gifts will flow from our being as a divine offering. We will meet each other in our majestic fullness and we will BE what our hearts have been longing for, Deep Inner Union and Communion with ALL of existence – Enlightened Living and Loving.

– You cannot touch a (wo)man of Tao. Why? – because there is no one to be touched. There is no wound. (S)he is healthy, healed, whole. This word whole is beautiful. The word heal comes from the whole, and the word holy also from the whole. (S)he is whole, healed, holy. ~ Osho
