Returning to Nancy Blair’s Goddesses for Every Season (Copyright 1995, Element Books, Inc., Rockport, Massachusetts), the Goddess for the Fourth Week of Autumn Is Shekinah.
In the Judaic Tradition, Shekinah Is the Feminine Aspect, or the (Goddess) Soul of God. Or, The God, as my fellow Witches might say.
Like Sophia in the Gnostic Tradition, Shekinah represents Wisdom.
There is a big difference between Knowledge and Wisdom. Both are Sacred, powerful and important.
I could be pithy about both, but I digress.
This week, I invite you, regardless of your Tradition, religion, Spiritual Practice, etc., to work with Shekinah. Ask Her to Guide you; to Knowledge, to Wisdom, to your Inner Knowing.
I AM being Divinely Guided (probably by Shekinah, Herself) to share the Affirmation that accompanies Her section in Goddesses for Every Season.
“I can make changes without having rational reasons. I can trust the unknown without having to fix an outcome. I pay attention to what is calling me from deep within my knowing. I trust the adventure of life.”
I invite all of you to remember your Inner Wisdom; to follow it, wherever it takes you. And to trust yourselves completely, and to trust the Goddess, by whatever Name Is most Sacred to you, as well.
Before I close, I found three fantastic images of Shekinah, courtesy of Bing.com. Alas, I was unsuccessful in finding the names of the Goddess-Graced artists who created them, but each, to me, represented a powerful aspect of the Shekinah.
I invite you to Mediate on each image (or the one that draws you the most) and see what Wisdom (and Knowledge) Shekinah has for you.
Thank you, one and all, for honoring who I AM and what I do. May we all continue to be Divinely Prosperous, Sacred Surrounded by Peace, and Divinely Protected from all those who wish to cause us and ours harm.
