FROM MOTHER MARY:
" I come to you from the Heart of Mt. Shasta in the expansion of the Summer Solstice of 2017.
I come to you with a message of love and also piercing truth.
Will you allow my love to penetrate into your shadows and bring the wealth of my blessings.
For I Am You and You Are Me. We are One and my message is also straight from your own True Self.
Take off your ragged clothing! This illusion of poverty that you have believed in has allowed you to fit into an identity that has given you pseudo-safety and belonging. This has nothing to do with money. It has to do with inner-resources and empowerment. You have been walking around feeling poor in self-worth, poor in healthy relationship, poor in sexual freedom, poor in boundaries that keep you protected. In so many ways, you tell yourself you lack what it is you need to be safe and happy. This Solstice has been a portal opening - an opportunity to live in the truth of your fullness and wholeness. And opportunity to dissolve identity of poverty and arise in remembering of your Divinity and alignment with The One. These old thought-patterns have taught you much! But eventually, they become ragged with age and no longer teach you but hinder you.
How much longer do you want to sit in old classrooms, repeating the 1st grade over and over again. You have been revisiting self-doubt and fear and not trusting your True Self's guidance again and again, even after you've realized the truth she tells you. Now, it is just habit that needs to be broken. You break a bad habit with commitment, determination and heightened awareness.
Also with SUPPORT!
Major life transition and major inner-shifting is an opening into a vaster reality. These experiences will be made more celebratory and less "sacrificial" through community holding and support. Who is holding you at this time?
Could there be an opportunity here to take off your rags together? To create a ritual to step into your True Identities together? To witness and be witnessed. To receive and give assistance to each other. To sing each other across the threshold?
You have free will choice. It is powerful. This creates reality!
Are you ready to renew your commitment to your true Self? Are you ready to trust your true Self?
Where will she lead you? What new experiences await?
This is the beginning of living in your true Wealth and Wholeness. You will see how wealthy you are and always have been. The layers of illusion are dropping now and you are birthing into the Creator of Reality you are destined to be.
If you desire this activation, please repeat after me:
I AM WHOLE.
I MOVE AND SPEAK AND FEEL FROM THE TRUTH OF WHOLENESS, I AM.
I CHOOSE THIS WHOLENESS, AND AS I DO, THE EARTH REVEALS MORE OF HER BEAUTY THAT HAS BEEN SHROUDED IN ILLUSION.
FOR AS I HAVE ONLY KNOWN MYSELF AS SHATTERED, I HAVE ONLY KNOWN A SHATTERED EARTH AND PEOPLE.
MY WHOLENESS IS PRIMARY AND FUNDAMENTAL.
WHOLENESS IS THE TRUE NATURE OF ALL BEINGS AND THIS PLANET.
MY FORGETTING OF THIS TRUTH IS OVER.
I CHOOSE TO MOVE FORWARD KNOWING WHO I AM AS A WHOLE, AWAKE BEING.
IT IS SO!
BY THE POWER OF MY OWN AWAKENED SOUL,
IT IS SO!
I leave you with the light of my ever-present love.
In the Name of the Divine One,
By Maria Christina Owl
I feel so blessed that I was one of those people who was recognized as a healer as a child and was always supported in following this path of development throughout my youth. Because of this, my skills and extra-sensory abilities are highly accurate and finely tuned.
I also come from a long line of healers on both sides of my family. We are mediums, channels, seers and empaths.
I define healing as a moment of realization :
All health comes from a balanced life, where nothing hides in the shadow, and nothing about ourselves is ashamed or stuck in old trauma.
Health happens the moment we realize we are beings of love and in that, we are powerful. We can generate our own health, joy and success, simply through knowing at our core we are LOVE.
Disease comes from a life wholly or partially out of balance. It is our systems struggling to come back to balance and giving us a wake up call with symptoms that are uncomfortable.
My work is so rewarding because I help people wake up to this truth and help them clear the old limiting beliefs that have kept them suffering.
It is so important to know that we are NOT the old stories or beliefs. And we DO have the power to shift these! If we commit to a daily practice of meditation with positive affirmation, we CAN rewire our neural network of our subconscious mind, to reorganize around self-loving beliefs. Once we do this, we eventually can create the life of our DREAMS, because Like attracts Like!
If we resonate at love, we attract love towards us. If we emit frequencies of peace, then we attract peaceful experiences and interactions. This is the Law of Resonance and it is a Universal Law. We are all subject to the truth of this law. But because we've been kept from the knowledge of Universal Laws in our schooling systems, and instead been subjected to oppressive media propaganda and cultural conditioning that promotes low self-worth, we have all been struggling to survive rather than thriving in the truth of who we are.
WE ARE REALITY CREATORS!
And now science is proving this.
Here's a resource for you all, from the HeartMath Institute:
The Appreciative Heart: The Psychophysiology of Positive Emotions and Optimal Functioning — By Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., and Doc Childre
As a healer, my view of the world has always been how to create balance, wholeness and happiness where these things are missing. After 20 years of my own studies and life experience, I'm coming to realize that it all comes down to Knowing we ARE LOVE ITSELF. The pure consciousness of love. And so is everything and everyone else.
I'll leave you with this prayer:
May you open to the intelligence of your heart-mind to lead you towards more balance today!
May you know in the core of your being that you are the very substance and vibration of love.
May you relax into the field of love emitted naturally from your every cell and DNA.
Thank you for receiving my love and letting me serve you.
My life is meaningful, because of this!
Blessings and Love,

GREAT MOTHER TRANSMISSION
Channeled by Maria on May 16, 2017 for her community:
- BEGIN TRANSMISSION -
I am here with you. I would like to speak with you about your calling. You have heard it many times from many messengers, that it's time to wake up and answer your calling. What is your calling and where is it coming from?
Divine Ones, you are here to do great things. You are programmed with your blueprint of awakening from the beginning of time. This calling is coming from yourself, from the eternal part of you who has never forgotten who you truly are.
You have been led to believe in a very narrow reality of existence, and that there are very few choices for you here. You came into a world with extensive limitations. What you may not know, is that you were expected to arrive and these limitations and obstacles were put in place to thwart your fulfillment of your potential and keep you from evolving into your true nature.
Yet they are also a catalyst, creating the tension needed for you and all humanity to take the leap into higher dimensionality. Both are true. You get to choose to live from the perception of limitation and victimization, or to live from the perception that everything happening is a springboard or launching pad for you to awaken.
Everyone has the ability to take the energy from negative events, situations, or words and transform them into a force for growth, opening, healing and loving. Like the Aikido master who never reacts to her opponent with fear, negativity or returned force, but moves with the flow of energy, working with it and redirecting it for the highest good.
In order to overcome the illusion of separation, suffering and victimization, you must be willing to see it clearly and see how you have participated in it; even chosen it and helped it to exist.
My Divine Children, I say to you - It is time to open your hearts and forgive the part of you who has suffered from this forgetting of who you are. It is time to wake up. And it is time to reclaim your mission. It is time to align with your original mission. It is time to be a clear channel for your Soul Essence. It is time to learn how to direct your energy to benefit All. It is time to bring all of your Soul parts home and feel the grounded power of your heart.
YOU ARE HERE TO DO GREAT THINGS!
As you open to perceive the truth of reality, and unhook yourself from the limiting beliefs, you will find a pathway that leads to the eternal YOU. As you arrive in the pure presence of your essential nature, you will realize that everything you've ever experienced has been relevant and necessary to bring you home.
There is nothing more important now than coming home.
Put all your grasping and defending aside, your lower desires and small egoic fears that have kept you locked down and spiraling in illusions.
CHOOSE THE PATH OF YOUR ESSENTIAL NATURE.
There is no one else who can do this for you. You must choose it. And do the inner-work to forgive yourself and others, liberate any blocked emotions, clear all density from your body, and begin the journey to fulfill your TRUE MISSION here.
Stop making choices from a place of not feeling good enough and trying to be special, better, smarter, more respected. While you continue to make choices from this grasping part of your ego, you will never align with your true calling.
You will constantly feel unfulfilled and like something is missing - even while you work hard to convince yourself that you are doing "good" in the world and you should be grateful for the moments of happiness you do have, or whatever the story is...
TAKE BACK YOUR MIND!
If you are not feeling joy, expansive love and excitement everyday, even in the midst of a world in upheaval, then you are still being run by fear. It's time to uproot the invasive weeds of lies, brainwashing, conditioning and limiting beliefs about yourself and what you're capable of. It's time to stop overriding that deepest, most eternal guiding voice within you, with survival fears.
Everytime you catch yourself in the midst of spinning in a cycle of fear story - Immediately stop -And say:
THIS IS NOT TRUE. I CHOOSE TO LIVE IN TRUTH. I AM LOVE. AND I CHOOSE A LIFE OF LOVE AND JOY NOW!
Yell this out if you need to, because you must assert this new higher vibration belief at a stronger energy than that old one. The old one has been running a long time, so be patient with yourself, but NEVER give up! Be consistent, committed and determined.
It's time to prioritize remembering. It's time to prioritize LOVE above all else. It's time to prioritize FREEDOM from illusions and limiting narrow beliefs. It's time to SOAR! It's time to WAKE UP!
I offer you this activation,
REPEAT AFTER ME:
I AM WAKING UP NOW.
I USED TO BE AFRAID TO REMEMBER ALL OF WHO I AM, BUT NOW I JUST FEEL CURIOUS, EXCITED AND SURROUNDED BY SUPPORT.
I REALIZE THIS DESIRE TO WAKE UP IS COMING NOT JUST FROM MY SOUL, BUT FROM THE LARGER COLLECTIVE HUMAN SOUL, AND FROM GAIA - MOTHER EARTH.
I REALIZE THAT TO REJECT THIS CALLING TO WAKE UP WOULD TAKE ALL MY ENERGY AND WOULD BRING A SENSE OF DEPLETION AND UNHAPPINESS.
I REALIZE THAT TO CHOOSE TO WAKE UP INVITES ME INTO THE HEALING FIELD OF THE DIVINE PRESENCE - WHERE I WILL BE TENDED AND HELD AS I FORGIVE MYSELF AND OTHERS AND BECOME WHOLE.
I AM READY FOR THIS WHOLENESS.
I AM READY TO REMEMBER.
I AM REMEMBERING NOW.
I AM ECSTATIC IN MY REMEMBERING.
I AM GRATEFUL TO REMEMBER.
I AM REMEMBERING NOW.
THANK YOU HIGHER SELF! DIVINE SOUL ESSENCE - I AM.
I AM A PART OF A MUCH VASTER CONSCIOUSNESS WHO IS PURE LOVE.
AND I AM RIGHT ON TRACK IN MY REMEMBERING.
AS I AWAKEN, I CATALYZE THE AWAKENING IN OTHERS.
THIS BRINGS ME JOY!
I ACCEPT ALL OF WHO I AM.
I LOVE ALL OF WHO I AM.
I OPEN TO ALL OF WHO I AM NOW.
YES, YES, YES!
AND SO IT IS,
BY THE POWER OF MY OWN AWAKENED SOUL ESSENCE,
- END TRANSMISSION -
by Maria Owl
I'm interested in actually knowing how it could help humanity to remember our star origins. How could it strengthen us? How could it align us with our true work here? How could it unite us? How could it deepen our devotion to Mother Earth, rather than distract us away from our here and now reality on earth? Did you know that the term "Star Seed" is from ancient Greece, from 200 BC? They believed that within every human being there was a Seed (like Soul Light) that connected them to their original star system.
I believe it's a fear that to turn our gaze to the stars severs us from Earth. For Earth is a shining blue planet within a solar system within a star cluster, within a galaxy. To become aware of our larger identity as "citizens of a galaxy" invites us to be larger as people - more inclusive, more expansive in our ideas, more willing to collaborate with off-earth energies to fulfill our purpose of shifting society towards sustainability, equality and heart-awakeness. We are swimming in resources that can help us. We are not doing this alone. So what stops us from knowing ourselves in this way?
by Maria Owl
Our power as human beings lies in our true and authentic self-love and esteem. From this unshakable center, we can look upon the world and everything in it, and feel love for it all. It is this love-power within us that actually moves us to take action on behalf of what we love, wherever we perceive dis-ease, imbalance, suffering and pain. “Lord make me an instrument of thy peace…” St. Francis is requesting God to tune him to the sound resonance of love and peace, like an instrument. “Where there is hatred, let me bring love. Where there is offense, let me bring pardon. Where there is discord, let me bring union…” As a tuning fork of God, St. Francis, and so all of us, can enter into places of discord and vibrate truth there until it begins to shift.
It takes inner-work to become so attuned to love that we vibrate this strongly. Usually we find love and really feel it, and want to spread it, then enter into an place of density and we end up matching the density. But imagine the power of unfaltering love?
Vibrating at Love
This is something we must focus on willingly. As we do, the vibration of love shakes loose our own density. The love clears us, heals us, invites us to forgive ourselves and others. We become more and more hollow and hallowed. We begin to resonate more with love than hate, wisdom than lies, and connection rather than selfishness.
If it is challenging to connect with self-love, a simple practice to open your heart is to focus on the image of someone you love. Hold them in your heart and breath. Let yourself smile. Feel their love for you. Hold this for as long as you can. This meditation will raise your vibration.
If we understood the power of BEING embodied Love, we would drop all frivilous pursuits immediately and focus on compassion and forgiveness, on healing ourselves, and on becoming whole. That all of you reading this now are focused in this way, is a reason for great hope!
To vision a better planet and hope that it will manifest simply through changing the surface appearance, without each person earnestly changing their inner-terrain, is folly. We will only recreate imbalance and suffering again, but in a different way.
So stay true to your inner-work. Continue to forgive yourself and others for past immature behaviors. Release all past entanglements and focus your gaze on the NOW; the place where all potential and possibility reside. Say yes to your power. Open to your power. Let the Divine Presence tune you to LOVE. Be willing to let the power of your true love MOVE you into action. Don’t go numb. Don’t be afraid of failure. Don’t invalidate your thoughts, ideas or dreams. Find others to collaborate with who share your dreams. Don’t wait. There are future beings depending on you waking up!
We, as a species, are in a time of great transformation. Familiar structures are teetering towards collapse. Though they were structures that disempowered us, and we disagreed with them, they have also been all we’ve known. And so, even as we pray for their dismantling, we may also be feeling the overwhelm of not knowing what will catch humanity on the other side.
We are arriving now into the greatest labor pains of our birthing. And we will need grounded, skilled midwives to guide our people through the birthing process.
These cultural midwives are the ones who are reclaiming their “powers”, so they will know how to steer humanity through the overwhelm, fear and distractions -into trust and empowered ingenuity. They are the bridge people. And they are critical in the creation of our new world.
Are you called to be one of these Cultural midwives for the new earth?
To answer the call to Sacred Leadership you will “have to rely on yourself more deeply and fully than ever before. You will have to surrender cherished beliefs that someone is going to protect you, save you, do the work for you, or show you the way.” (Thank you Bill Plotkin for that wisdom!)
Sacred Leadership comes from the Soul and the alignment of the Human Heart with the Soul Essence. Our Hearts are the organ in our physical bodies most similar to the energy vibration of our Soul Essence. Their shared signature energy vibration is Love.
As Cultural Midwives and Sacred Leaders in training, the Powers we’re reclaiming are very natural that are innate in us. They were with us from birth, yet we’ve been conditioned to believe we are powerless – conditioned to feel “less than” on many levels of our being. It takes courage to break free of the mazes of illusion and distraction and remember our natural abilities:
( I’m calling these abilities your “powers” – like super powers )
The journey our students embark on in the Transformational Leadership program, gives them opportunities to reclaim these innate powers.
You, the cultural midwives, are the guides and leaders of this transition time.
You will be the ones delegating and directing on every level, great and small.
And you will be successful because you aren’t acting alone. You are within a larger network of bridge-people, change-agents and light-workers – Like honeybees moving as one consciousness, with the same purpose: To awaken humanity into their true natures – into Love.
Saying yes to your Soul Calling to be a Cultural Midwife is about uprooting everything that stands in your way of Knowing YOU Are Love.
Leadership is only intimidating and scary to us when we associate it with the structures and models of power-over, and our negative experiences living within those structures.
We are being called to revision leadership to be aligned with Love. Leadership as an expression of joyful service. Leadership as a collaborative and inclusive endeavor.
In Devotion to a Sacred Future,

THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO BE DIRECT, real and grounded in my truth. Time to let go of grasping to fit in, be normal, be acceptable and safe by conforming to prescribed mainstream stereotypes…
TIME TO BREAK OUT!
Yet again – another truth demands to be sung out with the vibration of my voice.
Each visit to the Big Island shows me another layer of truth, that, once experienced and known, there is no going back.
I come to you today with a conviction stronger than I’ve ever felt to fulfill my mission here.
THE LIFE-CHANGING DREAM 2 NIGHTS AGO:
I had a very powerful dream the morning that Duane and I were to leave Kona.
This dream showed me the very real choice we are facing right now of remaining in the fear-based power-over reality, or opening to a new possibility of living in the peace that comes with knowing we are love.
In the dream I am standing in the cul-de-sac which I grew up in. There were crowds of people out in the street looking up at the sky in distress. Dark metallic spherical objects were descending into the Earth’s atmosphere and for the first time, humanity had to admit that off-planet races existed and that this one wasn’t friendly. They, in fact, had been witnessing our descent into fear as our world collapsed into more war, environmental devastation and a consciousness of terror, and saw it as the perfect moment to assert their control of Earth. They were there to “save” Earth and make it their own, while also enslaving humanity.
Just after their appearance, bright silver tetrahedrons appeared in specific spots over the land and sea around the planet. They were smaller than the spheres, about the size of a basket ball, floating about 7 ft. above the ground – points up, but when they landed on the ground they would expand to 10 ft. tall and a doorway would open on one of the faces.
My dear sister who transitioned out of physical form some years ago appeared. She looked purposeful, peaceful and radiant. She began to usher people to the doorway of the tetrahedron near me. We connected with our eyes and a love passed between us.
I suddenly knew my mission was to choose love, vibrate at love and help others to the silver tetrahedrons. “But what is through the doorway of the tetrahedron?” I asked myself. A woman near me spoke with clarity and grounded-ness, “The 5th Dimensional Earth.” My whole body shook with exhilaration. “Of course! It’s time to go!” I thought.
A woman came up to me and grabbed both of my hands. My consciousness dropped to one of fear at being accosted. My mind became full of paranoid thoughts: Is she an alien? Is she going to keep me here on the collapsing Earth where fear will rule? Suddenly her eyes began to bleed and I started panicking. She was talking to me, but I couldn’t hear what she was saying. Then, in an instant, I realized my fear was creating the illusion of horror everywhere. If I didn’t choose something different, I would create a situation of terror for myself, and be stuck in a contracted dimension of Earth until my mortal body died. At that revelation, I stopped my thoughts completely. I dropped in with the woman holding my hands and looked into her eyes. I relaxed my whole body, and I fully claimed the truth that I am Peace and I am Love. With that, I expanded and raised my consciousness. The woman’s face changed to one of angelic beauty. And she began to sing. Her voice was weaving a story of liberation from illusion. I joined in. We took turns singing back and forth verses emphasizing the clarity and truth that All Is Love. As we sang, the crowd around us began popping out of illusion and fear and becoming aware of the silver tetrahedrons which they couldn’t see before. More and more voices joined us in the song until we were a chorus.
I went to the door on the tetrahedron near me. I looked through and saw the San Francisco Bay Area in the 5th Dimensional Earth. Tears poured from my eyes at the pristine beauty of villages tucked into rolling green hills, quantum technology implemented into the cities, which gave people modes of energy with no pollution or taking from the environment. Mt. Tamalpais was alive and pulsating with emerald green light. And the waters were aqua and sparkling, full of life.
Upon waking from this dream, I immediately told Duane. Duane went into meditation to connect with St. Germain, who he’s been working with for decades. St. Germain is one of the ascended masters helping to prepare the 5th Dimensional Earth for us. Duane came out of meditation and said, “Yes! It’s true. The 5th Dimensional Earth is now ready.” For years Duane had been keeping me in the loop of his conversations with St. Germain about what next sacred site was being elevated to the 5th Dimension. Mt. Shasta, Yosemite, Lake Louise, the Grand Tetons, Machu Picchu…
WHY I FEEL I MUST SHARE THIS NOW:
1. I want you to know – that this dream is true to me – symbolically and in many ways, literally. What I was shown perfectly correlates with the energetic shifts that have been happening within me and with the transmissions of information coming from Great Mother. It also correlates and aligns with global Indigenous ancient knowledge and mystical scriptures.
2. Now that I’ve had this experience, there’s no going back to sleep. I choose not to put on any masks to make people comfortable. I choose to be 100% authentic and real in the reality I perceive and choose to live in.
3. As I was flying home from Hawai’i yesterday, I went into a Samadhi state on the plane as I chanted “I am ready to fulfill my mission. There are sleeping portals on the Earth that must be awakened at this time. Duane and I will take small groups of trained lightworkers to these places to clear and open these portals. This will allow more people to wake up from illusion and have freedom of choice. We are working with the cetaceans on this task.” My body was in such a state of peace, bliss and lightness as I spoke these words – there was no doubt at all this was my mission.
4. During this state of Samadhi, I heard a male voice say, “Your 9 month program will need to elevate now. It is more than a training for Transformational Leaders - It is a bootcamp for Lightworkers and re-membering for Starseeds! They need to know how to shift their consciousness to one of peace and love in an instant, when facing terror and fear. This skill is absolutely crucial going forward.” My dream flashed before me – how the woman’s eyes bled when I believed she was a threat. I was creating a reality of fear for myself. Then I changed it by changing my mind. I chose to become love, and suddenly she was transformed before my eyes. This is the lost power! This is the power lightworkers need to reclaim and teach to as many who will listen, because more collapse of systems (environmental and man-made) are coming.
5. Everything I’m saying is known by and is archived in the oral chants and songs of Indigenous Cultures around the world:
a. We are Starseeds (Hoku Hua in Hawaiian) to the Earth. We are remembering now who we are and what we’re capable of.
b. The stars are portals to other dimensions.
c. There are many, many portals all over the planet, some open and some locked down. It’s time to awaken the sleeping portals that open to the 5D Earth and awakened ally star systems.
d. This current reality of 3D Earth is splitting and a 4D Earth consciousness is bridging people to a new 5D Mother Gaia.
e. The Universe moves in infinitely expanding fractals, spirals, and sacred geometry. Why would Earth and the evolution of humanity be different? It’s not.
So, I have said yes to my work, my mission and my purpose here.
I know this is my last go ‘round. And I don’t have time to waste.
A WORD ABOUT THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAI’I
This island exists and has always existed in the 5th Dimension. It lies at 19.5 latitude, which is a place of inwelling and outwelling electro-magnetic energy on every planet in the solar system. The Great Pyramid of Giza is also on this latitude. Hawai’i is a massive portal. When you go there, the power of the Island, Mother Pele, demands you clear all the bullshit and step into the truth of your life purpose.
So with respect, love and honor to each of you and your missions and callings, I shed another form and arise into my winged presence. I choose to be awake. I choose to remember fully my work here.
Time is of the essence.
I will continue to hold the vision of all of us breaking free of old constructs and limiting, narrow beliefs about who we are. If you would like my help as a guide, teacher, mentor or healer, I invite you to reach out to me.
DUANE AND I WANT YOU TO RE-MEMBER WHY YOU'RE HERE! WE ARE COMMITTED TO HELPING YOU COME HOME TO YOUR TRUE ESSENCE AND CLEAR OUT ALL THE BULLSHIT!
THE HOKU-HUA INITIATION
Duane and I, and the Sacred Future team, already have the Lightworker Hoku-Hua Re-membering Program up and ready to receive those who are ready! Initiates will journey through the 17 Gateways of Initiation, held in a container of integrity, honesty and love.
And for modern culture's needs for credentials: Initiates leave the program with a Transformational Leadership Certificate - Past students have gotten credit for degree programs, CEU's, etc...
Yes… it is somewhat intense, bootcamp-like. For a reason! If my words have ignited a remembering in you, or you are already connecting the dots around these things, and what I’ve written here brings another level of A-Ha, we welcome you!
If you are cynical, just wanting to be saved, or wanting to prove us wrong, please don’t reach out. This work is timely and important and every moment is precious. Don’t waste our time. Instead, follow your joy and your unique path!
YES - YOU CAN CHOOSE THIS TRANSFORMATION AND LIVE A DIFFERENT LIFE - ONE ALIGNED COMPLETELY WITH YOUR SOUL PURPOSE!
There is an application process to make sure this path is right for you.
Please remember –
To judge, resent, wish ill, gossip about, feel jealousy towards, another… you are only shackling yourself to a contracted, fear-based reality.
No one is your perpetrator or savior. You are not a victim. Rise above these suffocating contructs and roles to discover your pure, beautiful essence.
Time to vibrate your truth and get to work!
Maria Owl - Hoku-Hua (starseed)
We each grow uniquely, like individual flowers in a meadow of blossoming flowers. We're connected, yet different. We have similar needs and unique needs. We view things through our own "learning" lenses. We relate to people, places, God/dess in the way WE NEED so we can move closer to the fulfillment of potentials.
Tonight I am inspired to write this as I've had such a colorful, roller-coaster ride with organized religions and spiritual traditions throughout my life. I have come to a place where I LOVE my relationship with the Divine and feel so grateful everyday for the intimacy I experience with this presence, that is everywhere.
I also respect everyone else's experience of and with The Divine or the manifestation of spiritual presence, or atheism.
I am grateful that I feel no need to preach these days. I can accept people's choices and honor that it has meaning to them, that I don't necessarily have to "get" or agree with. And I LOVE feeling that acceptance from others towards my relationship with the Divine.
I understand from my life experiences and witnessing cultures around the world, that people move towards lessons they need to learn to become more awake, whole and joyful. Sometimes those lessons look hard, intense, rigid, or dogmatic. But... that doesn't mean their wrong for the people choosing them. Every person is free to live life on their own terms.
When I was in 6th grade I wanted to become a Catholic Priest... but... I wasn't Catholic and I was a girl... so... I didn't realize that what I was really longing for was validation and witnessing of how powerful my love of God was.
There were moments along my journey when I was jealous of people who went off to India to meditate in Ashrams and Monasteries in Nepal. I thought they were way more committed and spiritual than I was. Over and over again, I tried to be loyal to just one belief system but it was so unnatural for me, that I never stayed long in any one tradition.
There was a time when I felt shame for having only Sun Danced for 1 year, when the tradition I was in told me I should have committed to 4... Now I understand that shame was more divisive and toxic than not dancing 4 years in a row... And indeed, given how my life unfolded, only dancing one year was a great choice for me! The year (1998), I would have returned to dance a 2nd year, my Medicine Man teacher molested me in my own home, during a ceremony! White Buffalo Calf Woman came to me in the midst of my trauma and heart break and reminded me that no one could take away my innocence or power. And I was invited to re-create my life from a wholly feminine design. That's literally the first time I saw how deeply I was judging my existence by the rules of the capitalist patriarchy.
Over a decade later, I tried it again. I tried to choose just one "religion"/ lineage to grow old in. I found the Ifa-Orisha religion.
When I left my Orisha community in 2012, I felt that once again... I was lost... a Priest without healthy elders, on her own... no one to guide me. Yet I'd just turned 40 and I'd just met my true love, and we'd just moved into a beautiful home on an acre of land.... Buying into the illusion of "failure" was more harmful than not having elders to guide me. My stress over being an outcast was distracting me away from the incredible life I'd created with my new love.
Everything shifted when I realized Orisha came into my life for a reason - to bring me home to myself. Not for me to get lost in drama infused dogma. Since then I have joyfully forged my beautiful and I'm sure unique relationship to my Orisha, and an understanding that my path is about freedom, individuality and authentic connection.
It was an amazing day when I let go of the idea that I HAD to be embedded in a religion to do my relationship with the Divine RIGHT. The Divine showed me over and over again, that my love was enough. And every personification of The Divine was blessed. I could relate through deities, through Jesus, or through science or metaphysics or animal and crystal spirits - It didn't matter - IT'S ALL SOURCE.
After all these years of growing and transforming, I've come to a place in myself that I absolutely love. I deeply honor and give thanks for all the traditions that have influenced and molded me. I understand that I needed to experience each one just the way I did, through my unique lens, formed from my unique life experiences, so I could move closer to my destiny.
My destiny is to be an integrated whole, not dependent on any one form of the Divine, yet devoted to my authentic relationship with The Divine. While also in respect and reverence for the truth in all religions and spiritual paths.
I feel no need to belong to any one tradition, because I feel I've found my true home, in the Universe within me - my infinite nature. I call my God - "Presence Is" or "Everything is Consciousness" or "The Great Dreamer" and I feel this active presence everywhere and in everything. I am a co-dreamer with the Great Dreamer. It is my life purpose to dream BEAUTY, HARMONY, LOVING KINDNESS, AND PEACE. This is my experience.
And I honor yours.
