Healing the Land of Haiti

Healing Haiti’s Land

A Call for Energy Workers, Healers and Shamans,

Artists and People who Pray

5-minutes to heal the land in Haiti

Our sisters and brothers in Haiti need all our help, and the world is mobilizing to help them. But few of us realize that the cries we hear are not only human. Perhaps as a result of our own careless living, Gaea is crying for help. Earth Mother is hurting in that organ of her body called Haiti. She keeps trembling and shaking. She needs healing energy. We need to calm and mend the land of Haiti. This will also result in curtailing aftershocks, in easier rescue, faster recovery and may also prevent the fissure in the land from breaking out somewhere else.

I am calling all those who work with energy, who love Earth Mother, who are creators and whose powerful prayers move the universe, to join the Global Energy Matrix created by all our prayers and send into that matrix an energy pattern of Healing Hands of Light Matrix with the specific intent to heal the land in Haiti.

If you are an energy worker, healer, alchemist or shaman, you may have your own method of sending energy to the Healing Hands of Light Matrix. If you want, feel free to use the Healing Hands Matrix Creation meditation included here.

If you are an artist, please learn and practice the simple 5-minute Healing Hands Matrix Creation. Then continue with the Art for the Haiti Land.

If you run a venue or organization, you have the power to transform the art generated in this meditation into material aid to the people of Haiti by housing the art created as a fundraiser.

If you are a person who prays, feel free to adapt the Healing Hands Matrix Creation to your beliefs. You can call on any sacred force, whether it is Christ, Mary Magdalene, Buddha, Allah, Sophia or the Holy Spirit. Names and beliefs are not as important as love, light and gratitude, which is the Divine Essence.

Finally, you can invite others to do any of this as a group, either online or at a locality. The button at the bottom of this post allows you to print this and to share in many ways, via email or social media.

Healing Hands Matrix Creation

It is important that you do steps 1-3 before creating the Healing Hands of Light Matrix. You do not want to use your own energy, or you may get sick or depleted, as the crisis is so big.

Step 1: Open your Energy Body to the Divine Light of Love and the Light of all your Spiritual Guides, Protectors or forces, whatever these may be. See and feel your Crown Chakra receiving and channeling a shower of Divine healing light of love.

Step 2: Receive this river of healing light and allow it to flood your being. Allow it to go to any organ or place in your body that needs healing, balancing or strength. Smile from the heart and let your gratitude shine in your eyes and in your smile.

Step 3: Visualize your loved ones and allow your love to nurture this shower of Divine Light of Love, as you remember your children, parents, friends and other loved ones and feel love and gratitude.

Do these three steps until you feel that the shower of light has totally bathed and inundated you and is overflowing. This may take three minutes.

Step 4: See your Universal True Self or Higher Self or your Energy Body picking up the overflowing light and sculpt it into a pair of healing hands of light.

Step 5: Connect your feet and heart to the network of trees in the world and flood your heart with love for our Great Mother Earth. Imbue the healing hands of light with this love and gratitude for Earth Mother.

Step 6: As you sculpt and caress this Healing Hands of Light with your energy or spirit body, see and feel them caressing, healing, mending and balancing the land of Haiti. Imbued these hands with your love and gratitude for Earth Mother. Talk to her. Sing to her. Let her feel your healing love.

Step 7: Send the healing lights flying across time and space, to join the Global Energy Matrix created by all our prayers. See it penetrating the matrix and joining the other energy patterns of Healing Hands of Light, forming a great hand-shaped energy matrix within the Global Energy Matrix.

Art for the Land of Haiti

As an artist, you have an awesome power to create and transmute any reality. In this creative meditation, you will focus on healing, mending, loving and balancing Earth Mother in that organ or point called Haiti.

Instructions

  1. Please practice the 5-minute meditation above before beginning your art session.
  2. you can use any or all art forms. Dance, paint, sing, play or write your healing to the land of Haiti and to Earth Mother. You can do it alone or in a group.
  3. When you get to Step 7 in the Healing Hands Matrix Creation meditation, begin your creative process as Step 8. Here are some helpful guidelines:
  • Sustain the healing energy vibration during the process.
  • Do NOT give way to experiencing the pain or chaos of the Earth. Stay within your role as a healer.
  • Sustain the feelings of love and gratitude during the process.
  • Your creation should embody the Earth as healed, balanced and in harmony.
  • When you finish, if you have documented the process or have any product, even if it is in-progress, share it. Put in online. Share the process and intention.
  • Place a link somewhere in your art page to this page, so that others can join.
  • If you have contact with a venue and other artists who may want to share their work-in-progress or art-healing-meditations, consider creating a fundraiser for the people in Haiti.

To succeed you must hire yourself

Last week a visitor asked the following question:

“I just found your site and appreciate what you have on here. I a network marketer, but haven’t yet experienced the success I want in it. Your obsession vs focus interview is great for me and something I will keep mulling over. I am looking for direction in building belief in myself and my business. I hesitate to talk to others about it because I think, they have a good job, or good business, why would they want this or listen to me. I do think I have a unique (better) business plan, and products. So I think it must rest in my belief in me. Suggestions?”

DREAM ALCHEMIST’S ANSWER:

Starting today and for a year, consider yourself on a Journey of Success. This quest is not a race. Observe that I did not call it a Journey TO Success, but a Journey OF Success. It is not even a project. It is an adventure, an expedition. In this exciting journey, you want to enjoy the landscape. You want to visit its inhabitants and admire its beauty. You want to learn the language and understand the culture of the people.

The landscape you will meet in this journey is really an inscape. It is the Inscape of your Affluence. You will travel inside your underground relationship to affluence. I like this word for three reasons.

1. It looks beyond money. I believe that focusing on money when we want prosperity is like focusing on easting pasta when we really want to visit Italy. Money is great, but it is a tiny detail in the big picture of affluence.

2. It comprehends the many aspects of abundance and prosperity, including our attitude.

3. It comes from the Latin root “Fluere”, to flow. It includes the flow of the Law of Attraction and the flow of abundance in the universe.

I am going to give you 4 start-up gifts for your journey.

The first one is this post.

The second one is a post called “Prosperity or Poverty: Choose your Mirror.”

The third one is a post called “Raising your Prosperity Ceiling.”

The fourth one is a shamanic journey meditation called “Shifting the World for instant manifestation.

Put these traveling tools in your suitcase as you begin your Journey of Success. During this entire year you will be on a ceremony that connects you with your Higher Powers. This is what I recommend you do:

  1. Begin every morning with Gratitude.
    When you place your feet on the floor, say your version of the following:
    “Thank you for this new day of affluence in all aspects of my life.”
  2. Show appreciation in every meal by blessing it and naming its healing power. For example: “Thank you for this oatmeal that makes my heart strong.”
  3. Every night, light a candle and ask for help and guidance in your dreams. At that time, you can be guided with the least resistance and can receive enlightenment, powerful images to decode your unconscious, shifts of consciousness and much more. Go to bed in a receptive, listening mode with a peaceful expectation that you will be helped and guided. Keep a dream journal.

In between these tasks, during the day, I want you to track down the following elements, and write everything in a journal that you examine one day a week, on the same day and hour, as part of the year-long quest.

MONTH NO.1

Ascertain your Soul’s Purpose

Track down the level of enthusiasm and passion you feel for what you do as a network marketer and for your website. Compare it to the things that make you the happiest and bring you the greatest satisfaction.

Let’s say that caring for your dog is something that fills you with love and satisfaction. It’s one of the things that you most love to do. Then that’s a 10. Compared to that, how much enthusiasm and passion does your website and marketing job elicits?

Keep an eye for situations that let you know about what elicits your enthusiasm, how you feel and what you attract.

This is a key research that precedes any other. You need to know if you are fulfilling your Soul’s purpose doing this. Your joy, enthusiasm, satisfaction and passion are your thermometer for this.

I suspect that you have been focusing on success by looking outward: where the money is, where your market may be, what you may or may not be doing. While these things are great, they are not the source. Your new approach is a great intuition. Focus inward.

To succeed, you must hire yourself. To hire yourself, you must believe in yourself.

But you cannot “make” yourself believe in yourself if what you are doing is not what you came here to do and is not something you LOVE to do and something that makes you feel GOOD about your contribution to the world. You can’t fake belief. It comes from your Soul and it is the state of your Essence.

MONTH NO. 2

Track down unconscious programming

Understand this: your conscious desires cannot be manifested at their maximum potential if there is an unconscious programming to the contrary.

Our conscious mind runs from1% to 5% of our lives. Our subconscious runs the rest. There are deep-seated programs there with  beliefs and perceptions learned very early on. There are layers of personas, called Shadow Selves and Wounded Selves carrying these learned beliefs. There is an Emotional Undertow of muddy, toxic emotions connected to these beliefs. If you stay in the surface, life may seem easier. But you will not be able to track down the formidable forces that are pulling you down and under, away from your goals and dreams.

For more information on this, visit Dr. Bruce Lipton’s office. I recommend his book, The Biology of Belief. Here’s the website:

http://www.brucelipton.com/

The conduit to the subconscious is the BodySoul Compass. Use breath, visualization and shamanic journey or meditation to get in touch with your underworld. Once you find out the hidden  layers of beliefs that sabotage you, you can then use Energy Healing and visualization to remove those programs and implant your own desires in your subconscious. This is an ongoing process for your year-long adventure.

http://www.psych-k.com/pages/prosperity.php

MONTH 3

Release the Dam within

The source of prosperity is your connection to the River of Affluence, the abundant flow of abundance in the universe.These river is ongoing. The Universe is a dynamic self-healing, self-nurturing, self-expanding ocean of energy.

But sometimes, for the reasons explained above, we have unconscious blocks that create a dam. That’s when the river cannot reach us, showering us with the abundance of the universe.

My first instinct with you is that it is blocked at the level of passion and uniqueness. Uniqueness does not mean better. It means that what you offer is blessed with YOUR presence, gifts and talents. Whether this uniqueness block is due to the fact that you are in the wrong track or to unconscious programming, or both –the effect is going to be easily seen in your life and your business offers.

Look at your website and other marketing tools. Is this a pleasurable, exciting, welcoming, delicious, “oh-so-you” invitation to your potential clients? Or is this more of the same marketing language and colors find anywhere? Why should anyone come here to shop?

Would you? Why?

For help with freeing your uniqueness, accessing the sources of self-sabotage and expressing your uniqueness in your business and website, consider coaching with me at:

http://www.catchthedreamexpress.com/coaching.htm

MONTH 4

Expression Make-over

In our result-driven society we often think that “believing in the self” is simply about the right angle, the right “rap.” We see words and actions as things to be manipulated for an end.

Your words and actions are an expression of who you are. They are your unique creation. This creation has the power to create your world, a world unlike any other. This is what genius and originality is all about.

  • Know yourself.
  • Love who you are.
  • Express who you are with joy and passion.
  • Express your love and passion in what you do.
  • Connect with like-hearted people to grow this love collectively.

Your words are the expression of your inner world, which in turn creates your outer world. How are the words you use to market expressing your inner world? Your values? Your personality? Your causes? Your passion? What world are they creating?

Observe how you write and talk about your service to others; not only clients, but friends. What words you use? What expressions you use? How do you feel about them? Ask your friends if they feel curious or motivated to check out your products after you talk to them like that. Ask them if they are clear on this:

Why do YOU provide this service? Notice the emphasis on YOU. Your friends know who you are and what you care about. Does this service and the way you present it match who you are?

If they feel that it doesn’t, ask them to help you brainstorm some new phrases that are more like you. Perhaps you are sassy. Then your approach should reflect that in snappy, funny comments. Perhaps you are elegant. Then that should come across.

Of course, if you have realized that the reason you are not successful is because this is not really what you want to do, the journey here goes into finding what you LOVE to do and how to generate affluence from it.

Meditate deeply on your purpose. What do you want to bring into your clients’ life? What are your gifts? Don’t just talk marketing rap. Be REAL!

MONTH 5

Design for success

Now that you know if you are doing what you are supposed to do and you’ve hired yourself to do it by bringing your true self to shine in your words and marketing text, it’s time to bring this passion into the visual aspects of it.

It is time to look at your website, blog or anything else that is the container of your offer.

Does it have your branding? There’s a lot of talk about branding. But this is the way I see it from my shamanic perspective. Is your presence here? Can I connect to you and trust you? Does it sing your Power Song, your unique, beautiful, joyful passionate song expressing who you are and offering your unique gifts?

I see a LOT of ugly websites out there. I know that they are following marketing “rules” –but they are UGLY! They turn me off. I want to run out of there. They are impersonal, cold, pushy, difficult to read and scream “GIVE ME YOUR MONEY and get out of here!”

As a designer, I am always curious. Why are so many webmasters using black backgrounds when they have zero degree of readibility? Why do they make everything so square? Especially if the owner is a woman or is marketing to women. We love curves!

Why are they stuck on black, white, red or some beige tones? Did someone die in this cyberspace? Color is passion. Look at nature. Get inspired. Express your passion and uniqueness through color.

What do you want your visitors to feel when they reach your website? Enthusiasm? Clarity? Peace? Renewal and energy? Then seek the colors and lines that will make this happen. Think outside the box.

Take time to strategize on how you can bring your presence to your marketing containers. As I am a designer also, here are several clues.

  • Colors
  • Lines and curves
  • Your photo, looking at the visitor, smiling or laughing or in any other appropriate attitude that says YOU! People don’t buy from websites. They buy from people. Put your face up there, so I can see you.
  • Your voice up front, telling me in your own sassy, elegant or sweet voice why I am special to you and how you take care of me in this shopping experience, etc. Audio is nice, but it can be your written words carrying your voice and speaking directly and lovingly to me.

Five months have gone by. The entire course of your life may have changed. If not, now you are clear on your life’s purpose and how to convey it uniquely. You are working with any hidden programming that sabotages you, opening the flow of abundance from within. Your website and marketing language now express your personal power and uniqueness, connecting to others. What’s next?

Now begins your easiest and hardest task.

MONTH 6

Open yourself to receive.

You may laugh. But I assure you that in my work as a spiritual teacher, shaman and life coach I have found that MOST people have problems receiving. I see people working very hard, almost to exhaustion, for blessings that they cannot receive. They will repel the very thing they prayed for. They will work hard, but let it pass them by.

We desperately need to learn how to receive.

Allow the River of Affluence that constantly runs through all of life to run through you, to bathe you in prosperity and to run through you into the world, bringing beautiful gifts to others.

Let go of pushing, effort, hardship and struggle.

Allow. Receive. Release. Enjoy.

Repeat these mantra like a chant all day long.

“I receive the affluence that is already streaming througth me. I receive, allow and enjoy it.”

In the process of practicing these powers, which –by the way– are gifts from your Shakti Power, the Goddess and Female Force in you, you will attract streams of afluence. Be awake. Recognize opportunities. Be open.

Allow. Receive. Enjoy.

After these first six months, you will see an increase in affluence and you will know what to do next.

Here is my blessing:

May your heart open like a sunflower to receive the light and passionate life force of the Source of affluence in your life, as it shines now and always.

Light and love,

Maria Mar

Mother’s Day Gift- Self-mothering Practice

Warrior Tree, Mother Tree

Power Posture

Maria Mar(c)2009

This is a Power Posture to help women practice Self-Mothering.


While women take care of children, elders, the sick, the community and their families, many of them find it difficult to take care of themselves.

True, with all their duties, most women find it difficult to find time for self-mothering. But that is just the surface problem. Beneath, lies a deeper emotional reason. We have been trained to place our selves last and to feel guilty for giving ourselves priority.

the downloadable poster.

This exercise calls upon the sacred presence of  Trees to summon your Inner Warrior. This Power Self opens a sacred time and space, connecting you to the forces of the trees, the earth and the Universe for renewal and strength. It helps you to center yourself. Once you find your core strength and center, then you can call upon your Inner Mother to  embrace yourself and practice self-love.

Preparation

  1. In preparation for the practice, copy and paste these instructions.

  2. Download the audio on the right column.

  3. You can also download the beautiful Warrior Tree, Mother Tree original art by Maria Mar for visualization.

AUDIO MEDITATION

Click here.

Click the link above to download
the audio meditation

and the poster.

Begin your Power Posture by standing with legs comfortably apart.

You can listen to the audio meditation as you adjust your posture.

Through ought your posture adjustment, see and feel yourself as a tall, sturdy tree.

You may want to download Maria Mar’s original Warrior Tree, Mother Tree art and print it as a visual aid.

Visualize your Hara line and feel your chakras spinning along this energy line.

  1. Adjust your stand until your weight is equally distributed between the two feet.

  2. Flex knees slightly, so that they are not locked. This helps in releasing and aligning the pelvis.

  3. Practice deep inhalation, allowing the air to travel all the way down to your belly. Release the air in a slow exhalation. The slower the exhalation, the deeper the relaxation.

  4. Roll your shoulders up and back in inhalation. Then drop them in exhalation. Do this several times, until they are relaxed.

  5. Release your lower spine by dropping your tail. Swing the pelvis back and forth slowly, until you find the center, where it is neither pushed forward not tugged in.

  6. Readjust your knees and feet again to make sure that your weight is well distributed.

  7. Return to Deep breathing for a while. Look at the tree art or visualize yourself as a tree.

  8. Release the upper spine by lifting the crown of your head upwards while slowly aligning your chin to be parallel to the floor. Feel the seven vertebrae in the back of your neck as they release any crunching and occupy more space.

  9. Stand relaxed, spine released, knees flexed and weight evenly distributed in both feet, and visualize an energy line (the Hara Line) that transverses your body. It shoots up from deep within the Earth core, runs through your spine and rises up towards the heavens. (The second illustration shows the Hara line.)

  10. Close your eyes and feel that energy shooting through you. Gently touch the points indicated here with your hands, one with the left, the next with the right hand, bringing the hands up and connecting each point with the previous one:

    1. Right hand-touch your crotch

    2. Left hand-touch your navel. Connect with the previous point.

    3. Right hand-touch the middle of your stomach. Connect with previous point.

    4. Left hand-touch the space between your breasts. Connect with the navel and then adjust the point in your middle stomach, until the line between the navel and the heart feels straight.

    5. Right hand-the tip of your nose.

    6. Left hand-between the eyes. Connect these points.

    7. Right hand-on the crown of your head. Connect this point with the previous one and then feel the entire line, from the earth through your crotch running up all the way to your crown.

  11. Now you are a tree. As you feel centered and in balance, begin to repeat the words in the Audio Meditation out loud, slowly. To speak like a tree, each work and sound is born in the stillness and silence and then released to the world as a delicious fruit. Remember to breath deeply as you talk.

I am Warrior Tree

Rooted in the deep Earth, I am

Centered and strong, I am.

Drawing life force

from the fire below.

Drawing life force

from the sky above.

I am Warrior Tree,

Connected to the Universe, I am.

  1. Once you feel relaxed, calmed, centered, rooted and aligned, begin to raise your arms above you slowly and lovingly. You are shapeshifting from Warrior Tree to Mother Tree. Speak out the second part of the poem. Again, speak like a tree. As you speak, your branches go up until they are open to the sides, and then you slowly embrace yourself.

Now I open my branches.

Now I release my love

in a generous green embrace.

I love, accept and nurture myself.

I am Mother Tree, I am.

I am Mother.

I am.

  1. Feel your basic goodness. Feel the beauty of your Essence. Feel as perfect as a tree. Allow the green embrace of love to shower all over you. Smile from within.

  2. You may close the meditation there, proceed to journal writing or ask your Inner Child what it needs or want and then do it there or set a time aside to do it during the week.

Practice this Power Posture three times a week until you know it by heart. Then use it whenever you realize that you are neglecting yourself.

Female Secrets in the Law of Attraction-Breastfeed your Dream

Female Secrets in the Law of Attraction

No. 3: Breastfeed your Dream

By Maria Mar©

Author of the Dream Kit

Do you have a desire that you’ve been trying to manifest using the Law of Attraction? You may be missing the most important information for you as a woman. You have the power to quicken the manifestation of your dream using little known Female Secrets in the Law of Attraction. In this article you will learn how to breastfeed your dream! I’m sure you can relate to that, while your testosterone-driven brothers will go “huh?”
Learn more about the Dream Kit.
Birthing your dream is wonderful. If you’ve done that already, your dream is now a real entity, not just an imagined idea. It occupies time and space in your life. But it’s still a dream. It is not yet a full-fledge reality that can sustain your life. When that happens, you will be living the dream. It will no longer be a dream, but a reality. What can you do to grow that baby dream so that it is fulfilled?

Breastfeed the baby, of course. There is a reason why women are “emotional.” (And it’s not our propensity for drama) Emotions are the life-giving liquid that nourishes a dream. Just like a baby needs milk to grow, your dream needs you to feed it with positive emotions. Emotions are the fuel of the Law of Attraction.

The Law of Attraction is not called a law for nothing! Just like the Law of Gravity, it operates within specific parameters. Throw something and it falls. That’s the Law of Gravity. It works through the magnetic pull of earth. The Law of Attraction also works with magnetism. How do you magnetize?
Read more about this book.
Through emotions. Emotions are energies-in-motion that move within your Energy Body. They are the ocean waves within your being, generated and regenerated at the Sexual or Spleen Chakra. Water has been traditionally associated with the emotional realm because our emotions are fluid waves of energy that give color, intensity, texture and force to our thoughts, actions and intentions. Like ocean waves, they pull the tides of universal consciousness towards your desires.

When you pour your passion into your desire, you magnetize it. If you hold back, doubt, give credence to those who detract it or concentrate on the obstacles, you de-magnetize it. It’s as simple as that.

What do you want? Let’s say that you want to finish your book and sell millions of copies to share your wisdom and generate affluence in return.
Join our membership!
Let’s magnetize that desire. You can apply this process to your own desire as you read.

Name five reasons about your dream that charge you emotionally. You will recognize them because you immediately feel enthusiastic, joyful and motivated when you think of them. Here are mine. Do yours along.

1. I feel compelled to share this.
The spiritual knowledge that I’ve been giving about the power of Female Wisdom to create our reality and to change this world is a magnificent gift. It changed me from a tormented artist to a woman who sees beauty and magic in everything. I’m so grateful! It changes the life of everyone who opens her heart to receive it. I feel compelled to share this with as many people as can receive it while I am on this earth.

(Notice the tone and mood. My words are charged with my emotions. Notice the strong verbs. They are signals that I am passionate about this. That’s what we are looking for. It’s not a matter of manipulating language, of choosing the right words. That’s a common mistake. It is about recognizing and daring to share what really ignites your passion.)

2. I love talking, writing and sharing this!
My life is bliss when I am able to communicate this in a way that touches others’ hearts. I love talking about it. I love seeing that magical moment when a woman’s Ancient Heart awakens and recognizes her hidden knowledge. It’s like seeing a door that had remained invisible. Now the person can see it. Now she can walk through it. And I am the bearer of that Alchemical Key!

3. I made a commitment to myself when I was a young woman, to be loyal to my art and my gifts.
Ever since I did that pledge, I have made money from what I love to do, without working on jobs I don’t care about or working for just to make a buck. The more people read my books, the more affluence I can generate from my self-loyalty. That’s the example I want to leave for future generations and that’s my best way to inspire other women. I walk my talk!

4. I want to buy my beautiful home.
I want to purchase my brownstone in New York, so that I can have a performance loft, my studio office and my art studio, all in a four-story building with my living loft and store. I want my beautiful roof-top garden, too. I want to generate abundant affluence to purchase and remodel that building.

5. Meeting new people who are manifesting their dreams is exciting and helps me raise my energy vibration.
I love meeting people who are positive and who take action to manifest their dreams. It charges me with vibrant, positive energy. They understand me, and together we raise amazing power for everyone’s dream. I feel that we are changing not only ourselves, but the entire planetary vibrational field.

There you go. Feel the power of your own five reasons. They are your Emotional Dream Nourishments. They are the emotional milk that nourishes my dream. If you named yours already, you can feel your energy vibration rising and you are charged with faith, motivation and the fire of passion.

Place these five Emotional Dream Nourishments in a vision board, Dream Basket or poster. Look at them every morning to breastfeed your dream. Your dream will grow big and strong and it will soon be your reality.

Here’s how to do your Venus Dream Basket:

MATERIALS:

  1. Small basket, about 5″ diameter.

  2. 5 beautiful objects that represent each of these gifts (earrings, charms, shells, stones, gems) The objects should have a way of hanging them.

    (Sound bell): LOVE

    My gift of love comes wrapped in beautiful oceanic colors. That is me. When you open this gift, a beautiful music comes out. That’s my sweet voice when I speak to you with love.

Awaken your Venus Gifts!

Awaken your Venus Gifts!

By Maria Mar


Whether you already have your soul mate or are looking for him (or her), you want to invoke the beauty, grace, magnetism and sweet loving energy of Venus. Known by many names, among them Ochún, Kuan Yin, Lakshmi or Aphrodite, the Divine Female Essence of Love is the fountain of joy and delight.


Love is the greatest power in the universe. It is, in effect, the source of the beauty and perfection of the universe. What is love? For me, it is the force that animates creation. For love the perfection of the rose unfolds its spiral. For love the  ocean roars, dances and heals, birthing abundant life. In love, the seagull soars through the sky and the sparrows sing all day. The Full Moon shines to illuminate our love or our longing for love. The New Moon goes within to guide us to the source of love. Because of love and for love you and I exist. Without love, life would be meaningless. When there is love, all can be achieved, transcended, created or withstood.


Our society, however, has relegated love to a tiny romantic corner to be visited in Valentine and when you want to watch the Hallmark Channel. That is like trying to reduce the mighty ocean into a bucket. Our society is obsessed with power. But by power it means control. Please, beautiful sister, do not fall under the patriarchal spell that has for centuries defined love as control, creating endless wars, making slaves and taking women hostage of its fear.


The myth of power as control is costing us our happiness, our love lives and our families’ happiness. Control is nothing but an addictive illusion. As a human being, you have an awesome power. You can create. You can co-create your circumstances, dancing with those who share it and the forces that can shape it. You can even summon all the forces and elements in the Universe to shapeshift your circumstances. That is a vast power! But you cannot control. When you try to control, you become a slave to that which you want to control, and you forsake love.


Let us then, begin the New Year of 2009 by celebrating love. Let us receive the upcoming Valentine by visiting the place within us that allows us to be the priestesses of love. For women, let’s face it sisters, are the embodiment and guardians of love among humanity. There are some extraordinary men who place love at the foundation of their lives and offer it the gifts of time and energy to be honored and nourished. But most of the time, it is us women keeping the torch alive, reminding our men of love, reminding them of birthday cards and anniversary gifts. Prompting or inspiring them to be romantic.


Let us celebrate the power of love that we bring everyday into our personal, family and social arena by naming our Venus Gifts today.

Here are five archetypal Venus Gifts. I name them as I experience them. Take each one and name it as YOU experience them. If you want to do a Venus Dream Basket, read the instructions for the ceremony by clicking the link.


LOVE

My gift of love comes wrapped in beautiful oceanic colors. That is me. When you open this gift, a beautiful music comes out. That’s my sweet voice when I speak to you with love. Then this gift touches you, and your skin, your bones, your heart and your soul become soft and vibrate. My warmth flows through you and around you, making home for you.


HARMONY

I am Harmony. Every day I summon Harmony. I become one with the Harmony of hawk, flying seamlessly in an open sky. I become one with the Harmony of sky, birthing me in each breath. I become one with the water. The water I drink. The water that showers me. The water that helps me cook. I become one with Harmony. Harmony is my prayer, for in Harmony love expresses itself. In Harmony, everything becomes music. In Harmony each being sings its unique note and joins others to create the symphony of life.


BEAUTY

Beauty is the expression of the Essence of a being. Nature expresses its Essence with transparency. Rose does not hide its aroma or its velvety delicacy. It does not even hide its thorns. Tree does not try to be straight and perfect. It simply is. It seeks the light and twists and turns to enjoy it. It is naked in winter and dress for a party in Spring and gives from itself effortlessly. This is beauty. This is the beauty I hold dear, the unaffected, loving beauty that shines from within. This is my beauty.


GRACE

As all springs from love, so does Grace. It is the expression of love in every act. It is Harmony moving us from within. I breathe deeply, from my Essence. I surrender to the Goddess of Love. I summon Harmony and listen to the song of the universe. And then I dance. All the clumsy tiredness, the tiny irritations disappear. I am love. I am beauty. I am Harmony. I am Grace.


JOY

“You are a gift, Maria,” a friend recently told me. How sweet, those words. Yes, that is what I am, what I want to be. What I want to give. We often work so hard to be loved and accepted, when all the time what others want and enjoy is our Essence and our Presence. I am present here now. I am celebrating this moment. As Isha (Author of Why Walk when You can Fly?) says, “Love creates me in my perfection.” I celebrate you today. I celebrate life. Laughter heals, beautiful sister. Let us celebrate and laugh.

Take each of the Venus Gifts and name it as YOU experience it. Allow yourself to express your beauty and uniqueness, your poetry and grace. Let your soul speak and your love soar!


God bless you beautiful sister,


Light and love,

Maria Mar
