"Awakening Woman is a spiritual rebellion engaged in a glowing and embodied, nothing-held-back love affair with the great mystery.
She moves in the world with fierce compassion, grace and freedom, and is passionate about truth, rest & real love.
She is fluent in angelic, diva and in Kali roars.
Earth is home and so is infinity."
Chameli Ardagh, founder of Awakening Women
Our thoughts are the generative force behind all manifestation! Mystics and many quantum physicists agree that thoughts, concepts and emotions influence if not actually create reality, and that our mental focus upon a particular aspect of reality actually changes our experience of that reality to conform to what we wish to see.
Whether the reason for this is that we are all reflections of the divinely generous Goddess, or that there are an infinite number of parallel universes in which every possible scenario is already happening, the end result will be the same. We can change the reality we are living in to be one that benefits ourselves and all others.
Tarot cards have been used for centuries to tap into the primal symbology of our higher consciousness. Divination is not a way to predict the future, but rather to see more deeply into situations and into our own hearts and potentials.
Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards were designed by Dr Doreen Virtue, psychologist and metaphysician. Each card represents one of the Goddesses recognized throughout human history. Use of these cards can awaken Goddess energies within you, help you get to know the many facets of the One Goddess, and give you insight into the present moment.
From the beginning of time, sacred movement and song have brought people together - at times of seasonal ceremony and celebration, as part of everyday life and life passages, in daily renewal and meditation. The Dances are part of this timeless tradition. The Dances are simple, meditative, joyous dances based on those of many cultures that use sacred phrases, chants, music and movements from the spiritual traditions of the earth to touch the enlightened sacredness within ourselves and recognize it in others. Building on the Dances of Universal Peace begun by Samuel L. Lewis in the 1960s, they promote peace and integration within individuals and understanding and connection within groups worldwide. There are no performers or audience: all form the mandala circle as everyone sings and dances together.
Those who become aware of the presence of the Goddess may find themselves drawn to wiccan and pagan knowledge. For millenia humankind has acknowledged the Goddess, and wicca and neopaganism are expressions of the same unbroken tradition. The one great law of wiccan practice is, "if it harms none, do as you will." Persecution has driven practice underground for centuries but Her presence is again becoming clear for us to see and feel, and many are now joining wiccan groups or pursuing solitary practice.
There are many rewarding ways to increase your awareness of the Great Goddess Who is already within you and all around you. The possibilities are endless! It is also said that any act of pleasure that harms none is a sacrament of the Goddess, so being kind to yourself also counts.
The outer work is every expression of our gratitude to the Goddess, and of using our abilities to raise love energy and ease suffering. It includes solitary practices of praise and celebration, as well as practices with other like-minded persons who aspire to heal, raise and radiate love, and lessen the aggression and suffering that is so prevalent.
Inner work and outer work are intertwined and overlapping practices, and each enrich the other. The following are a few suggestions for opening further to the Goddess. Links to other organizations and groups who can help us on our journey will be continually added.
