Light of Lakshmi
Once our circle was cast, we paused to watch the setting sun melt into the sea. The final light of the sun miraculously flashed green. Shouts of joy and astonishment set the tone for our divine feminine circle. On this rare super moon we gathered at the private, bluff top home of Michelle Pettigrew.
Our ceremony was dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess of abundance and shining brilliance. We all needed some light after the darkness of last week. Taking a respite from our mourning we reignited the light in each other and kindled our own inner light.
Around the ceremonial fire we were tethered to each other as a mirror of light. Without fear of being deemed conceited, each woman spoke of her brilliance.
Like a slow moving lava flow we moved inside to get cozy and be soothed by Leah’s powerful voice as she sang, I am Light, by India Arie.
Is this ceremony enough to keep our spirit shining bright for more than a night? As the moon wanes and the darkness of this time returns, check your mail box. The light expression letters will be mailed when the moon has vanished from the sky. One thing we know for sure, Mother moon will slowly return to her full brilliance and so will we.
’til we meet again, keep shining.
Thank you Erica Crawford for your excellent photography.
