This message I received this week began a journey within myself that I was not expecting at all.
“Silence is Golden” is a phrase often heard and hard to trace back to its original source.
However in its most basic form Silence is likened to Gold, which is cherished as a symbol of wealth and power. The above photograph of the sunrise as I look out my windows, reminded me how in the still hours of the morning, silence is a precious guide in reminding me who I Am.
The contemplation which ensued led me to think about my purpose for being here, as if I were sitting within the Holy Temple of the Divine Mother’s Heart.
The next morning upon awakening in tears, I realized that in my Dreamtime the Divine Mother was showing me my innocent passion as a child and calling me to notice how much separation has occurred in my years of existence here.
“I awoke in tears this morning as I thought about our separation from each other.
How we have forced each other to deny the Divine Mother through ridicule and intimidation.
Through lies and illusions we have created a chasm between our hearts that appears insurmountable.
So today I will talk about slowing down and letting silence become our teacher in which the water is the only sound we tune into as it expresses the energies of our Divine Mother.
Yes it is now in which we arise and cry for all life as we learn to not live in fear any longer.” ~ Riverman
Below please find the 2 Prayers I read during my talk…
Morning Prayer for Gaia
Great Earth Mother
I greet you from the East
Where old sun rises
to warm your face
and all those upon you
your breath a gentle breeze
or raging storm
conjured to bring forth life
Bless you Ancient Gaia
for your living energies
Oh Deep Breasted One,
I seek your vision in the South
Bring us passion, desire and love
as creative as fire
to transform your children
and teach us of our nature
so we might hold you sacred
our actions in harmony
Old Majestic Mother,
praying from my heart,
I seek you in the West
where oceans, rivers, streams
flow abundance to your shores
Your intentions run their courses
as sparkling water of the Earth
reflects our inner knowing,
a mirror of yours
Bright Blue Mother,
mountains, rocks and hills
From the North
you ground and center me
Lead me on this journey
grant me shelter, warmth and health
Lend me understanding
to be worthy of your gifts
Earthy Mother, hear my prayer
Divine Feminine Prayer, by Rev. Maia Chrystine Nartoomid
Mother of the Light, may you reign as a Goddess of Wisdom within my soul.
Be present for me now and in every moment of eternity.
Take my hand and lead me to the Birthing Light of God within me,
for there shall I find my purpose in life revealed.
Mother, greet me at the door,
embrace me in your loving countenance and smile gently upon me.
As your lost child, give me assurance that your grace is with me always.
All streams spring from the font of your heart.
Your eyes shine as the blue sea into my heart,
and you forever find me worthy of your love.
In the spirit of this revelation, I offer to reveal myself fully to you,
who is my Divine Feminine being, at all times and in all ways.
