On the day of the New Moon in Taurus (April 26), with our theme of Pleasure in my heart, I wandered into a magical bookstore here in Asheville & found this book sitting on a Beltane-themed display. The radiant orange of the color drew me in & I traced my fingers across the words, Grandmothers Counsel the World: Women Elders Offer Their Vision for Our Planet. My whole body said, “Yes!”

 

Just over a week into the Earthy Pleasure Moon Cycle, I pass on 5 soul-nourishing, wild woman relevant messages from the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers to aide you this cycle and beyond.

 

1- Our salvation lies in opening our hearts to the truth of the Spirit World.

“What I see today in the world,” says Grandmother Clara, “is a lot of darkness and a few points of light trying to illuminate us as we go through the dark tunnel of our Age. We Grandmothers here are holding each other’s hands, illuminating this path, so that we can bring health to this Mother Earth and heal the wounds She is suffering from, wounds made by ignorant men, ignorant of the truth of the Light and of the Creator. The message from the Beings of the Stars is that it is necessary for everyone to open their hearts to the truth of the Spirit, of the Spirit World, as it is this truth that will lead us to our salvation.” ~ p. 120

 

2. Women are carrying the ancient knowledge of the Divine Feminine deep within.

“Women carry the ancient knowledge of the Divine Feminine deep within the very cells of their being, the Grandmothers say. Because their bodies are subject to the great cycles of the moon and stars, women’s wisdom is connected to the very heavens…We must be strong and walk in our innate knowledge and power under the protection of the four directions. With the world on the brink of destruction, women must wake up this great force  they possess and bring the world back to peace & harmony.” ~p. 133-134

 

3. It will be women with their wisdom who will save the world. 

“As prophecy states, it will be women with their wisdom who will save the world. Women must begin to forge alliances that will add strength to their individual voices, the Grandmothers say. Women must rediscover and share their wisdom to ensure the health of the entire planet and humanity by tapping into the vast reservoir of energy that runs beneath our common ground & is creating a new wave of women’s power. This reservoir of vitalizing energy is centered around a powerful and universal spirituality, based on reverence for our Mother Earth and a shared awareness of the sacred and interdependence of all life. The creative power of women united is an unmatched force for good.” ~p.143

 

4. Slow Down. 

“As time continues to speed up, we have no such time for each other. No one takes the time to get to know each other. Such isolation creates a spiritual separation, and eventually there is only darkness and negativity…Families must consciously slow down and simplify their lives, the Grandmother’s say, in order to become strong again. Time is a gift. We need to to learn again how to operate at the pace of the living world: the plants, animals, babies, and old people can teach us to slow down and live and take time to nourish ourselves and our families.” ~p.148

 

5. Nature is our Guide.

“The Grandmothers say that nature is prophecy, that wisdom is embedded in the very threads of Creation. The spiritual power of the Earth and the heavens releases dormant wisdom and creates moments of transpersonal guidance. At this time, the Grandmothers say, we are being nourished with a new purer energy transmitted by nature and the universe, which will help us meet these challenging times with integrity and grace.”~ p. 123
