MERGING WITH THE GODDESS
“Let us merge into one being,” spoke the Goddess.
It was my dream again, only this time it seemed so real. I saw the Goddess before me in her form as an elegant Priestess. She wore a flowing opalescent gown that wrapped loosely around her body and was clasped at her left shoulder with a silver Owl. Her delicate facial features were highlighted by her abundant dark hair which she wore swept up on top of her head. Small ringlets caressed her cheeks and the nape of her neck. An aura of feminine power surrounded her and seemed to radiate from her like a beacon.
Copper snakes coiled around each of her upper arms and around her neck she wore a magnificent amethyst necklace. A huge amethyst jewel hung from its center and rested between her breasts. The gem seemed to magnify the radiance flowing from her heart. But, what struck me the most were her eyes. They were as violet as the jewel against her heart and they penetrated my very Soul.
“Let us merge into one being,” she spoke again as she stood before me, face to face and heart to heart.
Even if the Goddess had come to me in my sleep, the honor was the same. How could I resist her request? She raised her hands to the level of her heart and I mirrored her motion. She stepped towards me and I stepped towards her. As our palms touched, so did our hearts.
Slowly, I could feel that we were merging. I felt the copper bracelets cool upon my upper arms and the weight of the amethyst necklace heavy upon my heart. I felt the gossamer gown soft against my skin and the weight of the silver owl which held it in place. My hair was also pulled high upon my head and I felt the breeze playing with the wisps of hair that tickled my face and neck. On our feet we wore simple sandals and we were standing upon the fertile soil of Earth.
The Goddess sent roots down from her feet deep into the body of the Mother and I felt their pull upon the soles of my feet as well. These roots, carrying our consciousness with them, traveled deeper and deeper, past the topsoil, into the sand, beyond the bedrock, and into the caves of enlightenment. Yes, the Goddess was alive there too, pregnant with all life.
Deeper still the roots traveled carrying our joint consciousness down, down into the molten core of the Earth. Once there, we surrendered our spirit flame into Mother Earth’s. Now, our flames were all One. Light as a feather, we floated again to the surface where our combined essence re-entered our body. The Goddess and I had completely merged into one body now and, in doing so, I had merged with Mother Earth.
From deep inside my expanded being, I could feel my legs pull nourishment from the earth. I felt the sweet love of the Mother, Lady Gaia, travel up my body. I was the Mother—I was the Earth. From my solar plexus, I communed with the waters of the my great oceans and all the life that lived within them. I remembered how my creatures had first crawled from these waters to learn to live upon the land and in the air. I could hear the call of each life as it spoke to me of its needs, knew intimately the growing of each plant, and felt the burden of every mountain and hill.
Within my heart was Unconditional Love for all that lived upon me. I felt the birth of each babe and the opening of each flower. My emotions changed the weather and the sky echoed my thoughts. I witnessed the continuous rising and setting of the Sun and felt the pull of the Moon as it orbited around me.
Then my awareness expanded to encompass the entire solar system. I welcomed the energy field of love radiating from Father/Mother Sun which kept each Brother and Sister Planet in orbit. Venus sent a special ray of love to me, her dear sister Earth. This love further expanded my consciousness and I became a traveler in the Milky Way. The Great Central Sun beckoned me Home. Then I saw the Milky Way as it surrounded me. I was the central body of life within the vast expanse of space.
Off in the distance, at the very edge of my Universe, I saw a star. It was Father/Mother Sun and it was calling me. Calling me home to Earth. With a gentle tug, I traveled instantly back into the Milky Way, back to my Solar System, back to Earth and back into a small body that was preparing to awaken. The jolt was so intense that my eyes flew open. As I set up in my bed I saw the Goddess before me and, deep in her violet eyes, I saw my Soul.
