In order to manifest anything in your life you need to put action to words. You cannot just dream about it or sit around wishing or even just visualizing it. Those are all tools which need to be fueled by actions.
So I gathered two of my girlfriends, Jackie and Lily (not their real names) to participate with me in a goddess/soul mate workshop. They are my guinea pigs and they know it.
We are on this fun crazy journey that I am making up as I go along, kind of with a little help from everything and nothing in my life.
Most of us have obstacles or blocks that keep us from our desires. Some are conscious and some are subconscious. The three of us have stated that we want to draw/attract our soul mates to us so the first order of business is to see what our blindfolds are.
What is preventing me from having the love that I want? So we had to think about this and make a list of our limiting beliefs.
My list went something like this:
-I am too old- (young man I took to my ex-husband’s wedding said this to me, apparently I wasn’t too old to have sex with, just too old to be in a “real” relationship with)
-My eggs are too old- (this from my doctor’s)
-I have no sense of humor( the ex-husband has said this to me–yet he forgets that I was married to him for 5 years).
-I am too fat- (mummy dearest likes to tell me this at least 2x a week)
-I am too smart- ( well I do have a brain and I do use it and I don’t dumb down for guys)
My god !!!!! I guess I am destined to be alone forever aren’t I?
Age is a matter of perspective and point of view and the truth is I am ageless.
Someday, I will be a great mom, not matter what the fertility docs say…but that may be another blog…..
I have a great sense of humor that my ex-husband will never see because we just don’t fit.
I’m not really fat but mom seems to remember my size 4 body and now I am a size 8—-I finally got that sexy curvy body I have always wanted. I would say that I am voluptuous.
So we looked at where these ideas came from and realized it was someone else’s voice rattling around in our heads.
When you have a dream or a desire and then hear a negative voice coming up with reasons as to why you can’t have it or why you can’t do it or why it will not turn out, you can be guarenteed that it is not your voice you are hearing . It is often times a parent, an ex or some negative other.
The only voice you should be listeing to is the one that is emanating from your heart and soul, because that is where your true voice resides. It is not inside your head.
And your soul mate will love you exactly as you are.
And so now it was time to go to the beach and offer up these limiting beliefs to the goddess Yemaya so that we can be healed and transformed.
So late into the evening, we packed into my Rav-4, my two girlfriends, my dog ( for security) and myself and headed off to the beach.
We took an offering to Yemaya, who is the Yoruba goddess of love and fertiltiy. She is also one of my spirit guides. She is often depicted as a mermaid, so any offerings to her must be done at the ocean. Offerings to Yemaya include melon, seven shiny pennies, sea lavender, and blue and white candles.
We arrive at the beach, which was quite warm for the middle of the night. We found a lovely spot and lighted our candles. We each had two candles, one blue and one white (Yemaya’s colors), which represented our self and our soul mate.
We took the papers on which we had written our limiting beliefs and burned them with our candles, giving them up to the universe to be transmuted and healed from our consciousness.
We then placed our offering to Yemaya at the waters edge, it it was taken by the tide it meant that she had accepted our offering and would assist us in the search for our soul mates.
It appeared as if our offering had been accepted but then 2 of the 3 pieces of melon washed back up. Hmnn…maybe this was not a good sign? We were determined to get those melons into the ocean. We had to place them on the sand as close to water without being in the water and then not getting caught by the tide. We all took turns trying to get those melons into the ocean. What a sight we must of have been –3 women and a dog hurling melons into the ocean. We accomplished our goal-the ocean took our melons and we knew Yemaya would help us.
You must also bring libations of spirts to offer up to the gods and we had Barcardi Gold with us. We poured out libations to the goddess. Then Jackie decided we should each take a swig of rum to seal the deal. I’m not really mush of a drinker but hey I want my soul mate in my life.
So there we were, 3 goddesses, basking in the moonlight, drinking rum while we opened our hearts to our soul mate………
Blessings my dear Pirate.
I will visit you in your dreams.
I will be the mermaid,
daughter of Yemaya
that rescues your dying soul.
I will drag your limp body
to the sandy shores
of a beautiful isle
and into your lips
I will breathe life back into you.
Sweet, salty kisses
as I gaze upon that boyish face.
I will trade in my mermaid’s tail
for a pair of womanly legs
that I will wrap around your
Let my womb explode
in the power of your soul
as we reunite in yet another lifetime,
to fuel one another,
to power one another.
and to mirror one another…..
softly and sweetly I bid you good night my dear pirate
for tomorrow is another day,
another lifetime, another adventure.
And I must reclaim my mermaid’s tail
and swim into the stars…….
