Yemaya for sale at Issie Madeira’s Etsy shop.

It was a cold night in Mesa, but Eta, Lisa, Mary and I warmed ourselves calling on Yemaya, Mother Sea, Ocean Goddess. We took turns by dipping our fingers in salt water then giving voice to our needs.

#1 We voiced something that needed nourishment in our lives, then touched our brows

#2 We voiced an irritation, released it, then touched our brows

# We voiced a healing goal, then touched our brow

The Moon hid behind a filmy cloud at the beginning of ritual. When we released the energy, She shone crystal bright. Not surprising!


New Book Study

boxtopGoddess in Everywoman by
Jean Shinoda Bolen MD.

The Spiral began a new book study last night and 6 women discussed the 2 study questions with enthusiasm and insight.


#1 Which of the 7 archetypes (Artemis, Athena, Hestia, Hera, Demeter, Persephone, Aphrodite) are you right now?

#2 How were you raised – which archetype? Was this who you were or did you have different archetype traits?

“The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.” Elizabeth Cady Stanton
