THE SOPHIA OF THE MOMENT
What does your soul long to create that you have not manifested? What gifts do you yearn to bring forth only to find yourself keeping them hidden within your own mind space?
These are always good questions to ask ourselves from time to time. They help us stay focused on what is inspiring us and this in turn can be an essential aspect of creating a satisfying life.
As illuminated by the sophia (wisdom) of the moment, it appears that right now is an especially good time not only to ask ourselves these questions but to make the effort to realize the potential within us represented by these questions.
Manifesting and The Divine Mother's Presence
The wisdom that has been revealed to me since early this summer is that we are currently traversing through a period of time during which the presence of the feminine aspect of the Divine - the Mother - is particularly available to us for purposes of helping and assisting us in bringing forth our gifts, talents and vision for what we want to create in our lives and what we want our lives to be.
In fact, you may have noticed lately (I certainly have) that in the last six months or so there has been a marked proliferation of seminars, workshops and articles on learning how to manifest. I don't believe this to be a coincidence. It is simply an external reflection of the movements and shifts that are happening on the inner planes of reality. We are all meant to be engaging our creative powers and the Universe is providing assistance in a variety of ways (including instructional and educational opportunities) to support us in those efforts. Note, this call to manifest our potential is not the same as the "visualize what you want" fad of a few years ago that was ignited by the book "The Secret," which was ultimately rooted in egoic desires and wish-fulfillment. The impetus to manifest that is moving through at the present time is about fulfilling our life's purpose. Rather than being rooted in egoic desire, it is an inspiration rooted in our soul's longing.
The Timing - Why Now?
So why now? What is it about this period we are currently living that makes the Divine Mother's presence more accessible to us? In response to this question, my guidance basically said "because it's showtime". [1. Interestingly, as this wisdom of the moment was first being revealed to me, I soon thereafter received a newsletter article from fellow-healer and astrologer Joan Pancoe entitled "It's Showtime”. In it she very clearly and concisely puts forth an astrological explanation for why this is a good time to work to manifest our creative vision. I won't get into the details of Joan's explanation but suffice it to say that her own astrological wisdom seemed to very closely parallel what had also been revealed to me. I highly recommend reading Joan's article. If you are interested in reading it, you can find it here.] Well, actually, the guidance was a little bit more detailed - and a bit more nuanced - than that. But there is definitely an aspect of "now's the time" to what we are experiencing.
What has been revealed to me is that up until now (and for the past few years), we have been going through a kind of initial “fertilization” period during which our awareness of what we long to create (our dreams and vision for our life) has been coalescing and taking shape within our minds. This fertilization period has been about becoming aware of what we want to create and then, through reflection and conscious thought, fleshing out these first glimmers of inspiration with greater detail, all in accordance with our deepest desires.
At the present moment, we are moving out of this initial fertilization and (potentially) moving into the first phases of actual manifestation. Staying with the pregnancy metaphor, it is like the moment when the fertilized egg implants itself in the uterine wall - i.e. the first moment when the embryo and the mother physically become one and the "structures" of pregnancy (which support and nurture the physical aspects of the developing embryo) begin to develop.
This pregnancy metaphor is particularly *a propos* for this period through which we are moving because like the implanting embryo, we too are being called to unite and become one with our Divine Mother so that she may offer us the “structures” that will support and nurture us towards our goal of physically manifesting our dreams.
To be continued...
In Part 2 of this article, we will explore the two main forms in which the Divine Mother’s help is available to us at this time and their importance to process of manifesting. In Part 3, we will explore what it is we need to do to take advantage of this propitious time and the hidden relationship between engaging this Divine assistance and our own personal growth.
