Prayer, 9, and the Divine Feminine
My numerological year this year is 9. Completion, letting go, opening to the unknown, replenishing, lying fallow, as well as getting back in touch with expanded imagination and visionary abilities. I feel such a sucking of my energy down, or is it out, into the deeper, or is it higher, dimensions. Recently I have become fascinated with the idea of prayer and have been writing and reading prayers. I added a section to my website: Pick a Prayer, as well as a new message page—and my first special message is on this subject. I sorted through many prayers from around the world, choosing ones that are very alive and not too wordy. I loved the immersion of doing this. It occurs to me that prayer is a method for shifting from the individualistic, masculine mind that we use everyday—the "enterpriser self" I wrote about last week—into the feminine consciousness, or primal self, that reveals our oneness and fullness. There is much to say about the ascendancy of the divine feminine and its relationship to the art of BEING, and it is much on my mind these days, as it too is connected to the experience of 9 and universal awareness. This is something I am tremendously excited about, and will be penetrating into much more in days and weeks to come. For now, I ponder the deeper meaning in the words of the prayer that used to scare me, but now gives me great comfort, that I still say every night before dropping off to sleep: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. If I should live another day, I pray to God to guide my way.
