I wanted to share this as it was a reading I pulled 2 yrs ago and I feel as we are approaching our harvest time of the year it is beneficial.
I am really not surprised I picked this card, seeing that the Ritual of Mirrors I will be conducting is happening soon. Mirrors are so commonly used, we really have forgotten the magical uses of them. Mirrors do one magical thing that many do not truly grasped, they reflect the truth. As the heron stands at the gate awaiting the initiate, The Dark Woman of Knowledge awaits to take us on our spiritual journey to the Otherworld. Here, just like Arthur found deep healing on the Isle of Avalon, we too shall experience this healing of our deep wounds. This meditation card is also known as the “dark night of the soul”, one where a new perspective is taken. The word patience comes up, and it is definitely not a word I like to hear. The card is telling me that it is time to just allow and not force. There are things that unfold over time. This is definitely an energy of change, and maybe that is the resistance here….change. As we sojourn to the Otherworld for initiation, we know consciously that when we come back, we will not be the same. We tend to let the mundane world foul us with its false sense of securities, we get so bogged down with that stagnant energy. It’s almost a loosing of one’s Soul.
In this moment, in this time, it is time for us to step back and allow. It is time to abandon the old thought patterns, the way things “ought to be”, turning the table to see the different side. If we take on challenges as hard lessons, we receive them as such; but if we look at challenges as great opportunities, magic will happen. The Goddess doesnt require a sacrifice, but with change sacrifices are often made. In order to have better, we must do better…sacrificing the old way. Here, we look deeply into the mirror at our own soul, and we are asked to strip away all that is not us. The crystal ball resembles the moon which lights up the shadows, exposing that which has been hidden. We like to think we are ready for this, but are we? Are we willing to leave behind that which is keeping us held back?
The journey is definitely beginning. The wise heron awaits us at the Gate. The Lady of the Lake beckons us…calling our name…singing the song of our Soul. It is time for us to go drink her mystical waters and begin our path with the Dark Woman of Knowledge.
I hear her…..do you?
