The Ashram and Your Purpose

Talk on the ashram

Mama turns all negative activity around. Mama, we, the daughters of Earth, the Sweet Crone Trinity has been inspired in the spirit of compassion for the well-being of our ancient cosmic family to understand why you connected this trio to demonstrate the magic of your power to awaken and protect our universal ancient family.

Empower our ability with the authority of our common purpose. We are one in the best interests of our global family in your essence as ancient of ancients. Mama, please allow this trinity to naturally raise upright our fallen sisters to elevate them to their true celestial level in mind and spiritual substance. ~ The Sweet Crone Trinity – Mamayah El, SiStar Myrah, and Celah Eliana Bey.

What is an Ashram?

ash· ram – ˈäSHrəm/ – noun

A hermitage, monastic community, or other place of religious retreat for Hindus. A place of religious retreat or community life modeled on the Indian ashram

Now is the time of harvesting souls. It is incumbent upon us on this call to awaken to the call to service to awaken and guide sleeping souls.

newparadigm

Today’s ashrams are churches filled with souls seeking light. However, they may be distracted by the message of ministers and preachers that are more concerned with the collection plate than in awakening people to their own divinity.

Of course, many of you have moved away from that scenario and are able to understand that religion is not spirituality. Until people awaken to their own divinity, they will continue to be led by capitalistic reverends that rule the masses from pulpits.

In the years leading up to 2000, the turn of the century. Psychic healers were warned to cease practicing their arts. The reason for this is that now is the time for each and every individual to ascend to the occasion of their own healing and pychic healers cripple people by being co-dependent with them. Several healers that I know either became ill or died because they refused to stop working with toxic people, who, in turn, made the psychics ill.

Now is the time to explore your ability to heal yourself and be a light for those who are physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually diseased. Your encouragement to one or more people who are still sleeping can make the difference.

You are disciples of the Ascension. You are the second coming of Christ. This is your ashram of like souls. We are here, together, to heal ourselves and become the beacon of new life for others.

The mere fact that you are on this call is an indicator that you are an awakened soul, waiting for your orders from Divine Source. You can no longer doubt who you are or what your Divine Purpose is. Let’s discuss this with one another, now.

Years ago, when I was engrossed in meditation with a yogi here in South Florida, there were several members of our ashram. Some of them are still with me. Some have moved on. Actually, three of them are on this call – Denise, Aman, and Gloria. They continue to communicate with me about soul growth. Aman brought me to Denise, who introduced me to David, who became my teacher, along with Gloria T, Gloria A, Philip, and several others, whose names I have forgotten.

David introduced me to Discipleship in the New Age written by Alice Bailey. It took me one year to reach each of the two volumes. http://www.bailey.it/images/testi-inglese/Discipleship-in-the-new-Age-Vol-1.pdf. I read these two books in 1994 and 1995. The reading was difficult, not easily comprehensible. So, I learned to read just before retiring and allow my subconscious mind interpret the meaning to my brain, heart, and soul. I realized that I was an ascended master, during these two years. I was living in a small village in Switzerland, touring Europe as a jazz singer. I took the book with me everywhere and read a passage almost ever night. This material prepared me for my future as a guide, a light unto others. I knew for sure that my purpose was to bring joy to and out of other people and I was bent on fulfilling my purpose.

First from SARAH VARCAS from her Astro-Awakenings.co.uk:

Occurring less than 24 hours prior to the end of Mercury retrograde, this Moon signals a shift of perspective. Events of the past three weeks begin to reveal a deeper significance now and through the coming month. A positive Moon with an uplifting tone and encouraging demeanor, she poses a challenge too, our response to which will color the weeks to come.

Conjunct retrograde Mars she calls forth courage and appeals especially to those who identify as spiritual warriors, seeing through the seductions of an unconscious world, while living in that world full-blooded and passionate: engaged, enlivened, and entranced by its paradoxical beauty. There exists an innocence about this Moon, even as she radiates timeless wisdom passed down through ages. Burning away the jaded half-truths of dogma and obedience to belief and form, she illuminates the vitality at the heart of a soul on fire for truth.

Currently in Scorpio, Black Moon Lilith also speaks, reminding us that without the darkness of inky skies we could never appreciate a magnificent moon. We cannot have light without darkness. To deny the shadows renders life uni-dimensional, robbed of its guts and gumption. Those feelings we judge as wrong or negative, the ones we’re told aren’t spiritual or ‘of the light’, they are part of us too, an expression of our wild nature which rages against obstacles, suffers when suppressed and challenges the narrative that nice is more important than true.

Lilith embraces everything and everyone, resplendent in her power and alive in her fullness. She stands beside every person torn apart by grief, ground down by depression, fractured by rage or broken by guilt. She looks into our eyes and sees our soul aflame with both divine love and sacred wrath, united in one ecstatic expression of Life. She reminds us the most effective response to life is born of an open mind and heart, not one resistant to the very conditions it struggles to confront.

From KELLEY ROSANO:

This Full Moon is in a grand square. The test will be to balance your need for freedom with your duties. There will be a tug of war between keeping the status quo verses your risk taking. This is a dynamic Full Moon. It effects many areas of your life. This is where the action is this year. We have been building towards this time. With Saturn in Neptune, you can feel pulled in numerous directions. Less is more. Make friends with the word no. No is your friend. No, I am not available. No, I cannot do that for you.

This Moon requires you to be who you really are. Be true to yourself. Yes, consider the needs of others. But do not let others needs trump what is right for you. Come from your soul desires. Your soul knows what you need. Saturn requires you to be realistic. Be practical. Be grounded.

If you are tired rest. Take plenty of catnaps. These energies can be exhausting at times. It will take time to get used to the higher vibrations.  It is not the time to push yourself. Focus your energy. Work while you are strong. Rest when you need it. Listen to your body. It is your messenger. What is it telling you?

Saturn restricts the energy of the Sun. This is so you prioritize what is important for you and what is a distraction. Do what makes you happy. Make sure you are including you in your life. Where are you out of balance? You are here to be happy. You are not here just to serve. You are here to live your Best Life. Make sure that what you are doing is right for you. That you are not in denial of the truth. What is real? What is an illusion? This will be your challenge. Discernment and patience will guide your way.

From ROBERT WILKINSON from his Aquarius Papers:

This is an extremely important Lunation that will open a certain type of Wisdom for the next year. This Lunation bridges what has been and what is just now beginning to unfold. Be willing to find techniques that help you know what is core and what is peripheral. Take another look at what is more important and what is less important, and find ways to experience life and power more deeply that open a cultural sensitivity and your understanding of the importance of your cultural background.

This distributive, communicative, activating, and truth-focused Full Moon at 2 Gemini-Sagittarius will allow us to see and express truth and wisdom demonstrating a determination to live a greater freedom in all our lives. This Full Moon falls at 2 Gemini and Sagittarius. The Solar degree symbol for the 2nd degree of Gemini is ‘Santa Claus filling stockings furtively.’

We are told in the Astrological Mandala that this symbolizes ‘a rewarded faith in spiritual blessings,’ relating to our purity of heart and our willingness to accept gifts from the invisible world. This is about us getting beyond ‘ego and rationalistic arguments’ so we can experience the manifestation of what we have imagined.

We should not examine the gifts from the invisible world too closely, and we need to build an attitude that will help us receive gifts and blessings from the spiritual realm. We need ‘faith, purity of heart, and a common type of understanding,’ as well as innocence. This is about a need for appreciation when encountering ‘nature’s largess and society’s favors,’ where we keep spiritual values alive in the hearts of all.

The Lunar degree symbol for the 2nd degree of Sagittarius is ‘The ocean covered with whitecaps.’ According to Dr. Jones, creator of the Sabian Symbols, we find this degree symbolizes ‘the unending availability of everything ever needed for life and experience’ which we discover via the ‘tireless anticipations of the human soul.’ We must focus on ‘the restlessness of an over-all consciousness‘ in which our ‘immortal being is cradled, and for channeling this into a manifestation of personal energy.’

We prosper as we are ‘self-quickened to (our) own potentialities.’ So, the Lunar degree should help us express the Light through whatever intensifies us, or where we hear a call to some form of ‘vital activity.’ This will help us express whatever we’ve been anticipating, and channel our ‘immortal self’ into some personally relevant ‘manifestation of personal energy.’

This implies that part of the wisdom this year is about allowing ourselves to be quickened, intensified, or becoming more resourceful, and finding a greater way to view our attack on the problems of life.”

MOLLY HALL from Astrology.About.com:

At this Sagittarius Full Moon, there can be flash sightings of a new big picture. Sagittarius is mutable fire, the sign of broad knowledge — the kind that connects the dots. This is very empowering and allows you to consider new and surprising possibilities. Sagittarius is the sign of truth and high ideals. Gandhi said, ‘Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.’ With the clarity, unveiling, and burning off of what is false, a new path forward is realized.

All ashrams are not equal.

Satsanga, Satsangam, Satsang in South Asian religions is being in the company of the truth or the good, by sitting together with a guru or a group of spiritual students.

The Satsang Association is a companionship between those who are open to the truth in all religious traditions and are seeking to know the absolute, the source of all life, those who also accept their need for guidance, challenge and support in the concrete living out of their ideals.

Satsang is a Sanscrit word meaning the coming together, the SANGA, of those who are seeking SAT (i.e. Being, Truth, God) in order to support each other’s spiritual quest.

Satsang members recognise the barriers which are at the heart of many of today’s social evils, barriers which create fear and suspicion and thus keep people in conflict.

In small, often unnoticed, yet significant ways they are working to transform fear into respect and understanding – wherever they live and work.

The Satsang Association has been forming internationally around the initiative of Sister Ishpriya’s spiritual teaching and guidance.

Satsang members make a serious commitment to:

  • their personal growth in spiritual awareness and practice
  • helping remove the barriers of prejudice and ignorance which divide persons from each other
  • building up relationships of compassion and appreciation across frontiers of race, language, culture and religion.

Seeking together • helping to create • a planetary vision • universal compassion

Truth UnCONpromeyezed Media Network

eonsago

We are all connected, all bearing the seed of Divinity. This is the way we start and the way we develop into eternity. It is only while in third dimension physical form and because of the greater separation of our higher self from the personality that we experience the illusion that we stand alone. When we experience great soul growth, in some small but profound manner, all benefit. All substance in this Universe flows to us and through us. We Are All One. ~ Author Unknown

Six-dimensional space is any space that has six dimensions, that is, six degrees of freedom, and that needs six pieces of data or coordinates to specify a location in this space. There are an infinite number of these but those of most interest are simpler ones that model some aspect of the environment.

According to Superstring Theory, the fifth and sixth dimensions are where the notion of possible worlds arises. If we could see on through to the fifth dimension, we would see a world slightly different from our own that would give us a means of measuring the similarity and differences between our world and other possible ones.

In the sixth dimension, we would see a plane of possible worlds, where we could compare and position all the possible universes that start with the same initial conditions as this one, for example, the Big Bang. In theory, if you could master the fifth and sixth dimension, you could travel back in time or go to different futures. [We do this with memory and projection into the future.]

In the seventh dimension, you have access to the possible worlds that start with different initial conditions. Whereas in the fifth and sixth, the initial conditions were the same and subsequent actions were different, here, everything is different from the very beginning of time.

The eighth dimension gives us a plane of such possible universe histories, each of which begins with different initial conditions and branches out infinitely. That is why they are called infinities.

In the ninth dimension, we can compare all the possible universe histories, starting with all the different possible laws of physics and initial conditions.

In the tenth dimension, we arrive at the point in which everything possible and imaginable is covered. Beyond this, nothing can be imagined by us, which makes it the natural limitation of what we can conceive in terms of dimensions.

The Vision Alignment Project – A Vision for the Great Beings of Nature

We see a world where everyone knows that the Great Beings of Nature are alive and willing to partner with us to create a comfortable environment for us to live in; where the clouds are known as Great Beings of the sky who will shade us as we ask and who are to be befriended for the benefit of all; where the rains are known as Great Beings of the water who will advance or recede at our request; where the winds are known as Great Beings of the air, alive and empowered, who will gust or slow to a gentle breeze when we call in the name of Great Spirit.

We see the Sun, now known to all and everyone, as a Living Being who is the Light and the Way; who is always there for us; who never needs worshipped but who will reveal Its Great Love to all who approach with innocence and a gentleness of heart. For, indeed, as we hold our attention on the Great Being who is the Sun in the moments just before dusk or after the dawn, we recharge ourselves with light and love. And as we hold our inner attention on the Great Being who is the Sun in our quiet, meditative, prayerful time, we become a Sun unto ourselves.

Dr. Gabriel Oyibo’s theorem of God Almighty’s Grand Unifying Theory (GAGUT) is based upon God/Goddess that is a WAVE called “Spirit” with a wave length and vibration that manifests as mankind in order to affect God having a human experience. We must deny and unlearn all negative ideas of ourselves. The bottom line of this theorem is “Be Yourself”!

Humanity was not Born to Quarrel

April 13, 2016 by Steve Beckow

light dimension

Credit: www.davidmcelroy.org

Thanks to Sitara for a fertile conversation.

In my view, humanity was not born to quarrel but to love. In light of that, I propose a new model of mediation. Heck, I don’t know whether it’s new. I propose another model.

Love – and by that I mean universal or transformative love, and not the mild affection we usually feel – once seen and discovered, so to speak, becomes ever after the baseline, the standard to refer to.

One always wants to return to love and its sister space, bliss. Then, one discovers that love is our very nature, that we don’t need to come or go to it. We simply need to remove the obstacles to it, the overburden that covers it, the barriers to love.

If all of us are not actually trying to get to transformative love, I’d recommend it. I’m going to speak as if we all are for the sake of argument. And to any who advise against “trying,” no, effort is necessary in the beginning, to create momentum. There comes a time when effort is counterproductive – I agree – but that comes after a time of effort.

If the object of our action is to mediate, then what we want to do is to remove one issue after another from the space, until the two parties are restored to love. Take the issues one at a time. It doesn’t matter if you take the easiest or the most difficult first. It depends on your skill set, your preferences, your work method.

Allow the affected party to speak and be heard without interruption. Then the other party also, without interruption. Keep going back and forth until the issue is resolved. Then go on to the next. Don’t be satisfied until each issue is flat and the two participants are restored to love.

I am so filled with hope these days. Although trying situations arise, one by one they get handled and I’m restored to Self again. Surely that says something. If, by removing the rubbish from ourselves, we end up in our peerless Self, then there must be a direction to life, a preferred direction.

And that preferred direction is just that: To emerge from our residue, leave the Third Dimension behind, and go forward into the Light. Just picture that. Imagine it. Now, perhaps, walk into it.

The Divine Mother on the Divine Plan

November 11, 2015 by Steve Beckow

divine mother

The Divine Plan is always operative, but it is never so visible as when events of tremendous magnitude and significance are happening, such as our Ascension. Here is the Divine Mother discussing it in 2012.

The Divine Mother is not an ascended master or goddess. She and the Father are One. It is simply that she creates, preserves and transforms – that is, that she is active – and he is transcendently still.

Steve Beckow: I’d like to seek more information from you now on what we know as the Divine Plan. Now, the Divine Plan for Ascension, the Divine Plan for life — there is a Divine Plan for all of it. Can you, for our listeners who are unfamiliar with the notion of there being a Divine Plan, can you discuss this — perhaps the Divine Plan for this Ascension, please?

Divine Mother: I would be very happy and honored to discuss the Divine Plan. And yes, the Divine Plan for Ascension. And your Divine Plan.

And I do not simply mean you, Steve. I mean everyone who will ever listen to this broadcast. Because, my beloved children, it is important, essential, that you understand not just cognitively but deep within your core that not only are you part of the Divine Plan, but that you, within that, have your Divine Plan, that you are critical, and what you think of as worthy enough, important enough, and always have been, that you have a Divine Plan.

Now, so often upon this planet, this beautiful planet of Gaia, there have been so many varying opinions about the Divine Plan and your Divine Plan. And so, before I speak of Ascension, let me speak of this.

There are so many of you that rejected the notion of your Divine Plan and the Divine Plan, because you wanted to be in charge, that you did not want to think that you were simply a puppet in a pre-arranged theatre; that the free will and free choice was exclusive to you, and that you could vary and go as far as you wanted in terms of what you choose to do; that nothing was fated.

Well, you’ve tried that, haven’t you? And in so many situations it has caused war and mayhem, lack and separation. The Father and the Father through me have never dictated to you how you will unfold your plan. But make no mistake about this. You, in conjunction with All — and think of that — not only with your guides but with your grid, with your collective, with the universe and with us, have chosen your plan.

Now, even in the human realm it is beyond comprehension that you would not wish to align and to do this. And that is why your heart yearns and directs you to undertake certain actions, thoughts, behaviors, directions. And that is why when you are doing certain things and moving in certain directions you know your joy. You say, “I feel happy! I feel like I am on track!” It is because you are within the unfoldment of your plan, and your plan is magnificent! It is the full expression, particularly in this incarnation, of who you are, of your unique spark.

So, do not underestimate your plan within the grander plan.

Now, I cannot speak to you about the totality of the Divine Plan. You would think that I was speaking in an intergalactic language, and chances are that some of you would understand, but the majority of you would not. But I am most certainly pleased and honored to speak to you about the plan for Gaia, for the human collective and for Ascension at this time. And for that I bring you back. I bring you back to the beginning.

The Plan was for you to inhabit a form and to know and be love and joy, diverse, unique, flexible. The Plan was for you to be inter- and trans-dimensional. Did you wander and take some of those scenic by-ways, those detours that I have referred to this night? Yes. And that free will, with all the elements of what you think of as evil and darkness, drama, intrigue — you have excelled at this! And you are also very tired and sick of it, aren’t you?

So, now, you return to that alignment of beauty, of truth in form. And this is what is unique about this element of the Divine Plan, that you are holding on to these magnificent forms, what you think of as bodies. And part of that, beloved ones, is admiring and cherishing and loving your body, because you designed it, you chose it. Yes, you were part of the architectural team.

Is it transferring into a different molecular base? Yes. But your bodies, to take your bodies and be in the higher realms, where you have always belonged, and let go of those densities, that quagmire that you got stuck in — for a very long time! — now is the restoration of the Divine Plan. And it is for you to be the embodiment of love. It is you, each of you, bright angels, starseeds, gatekeepers, humans, Earth-keepers, to have a physical experience of being that embodiment of love.

This was part of the plan, the part that involved you and this planet and the ripple effect out to the multiverse of your star brothers and sisters. Why do you think they wish to participate, to witness? This is highly unique. The humans are going to be transdimensional in form, after all this time. They are going to embody love and the Divine Qualities. It is worth having a look at. It is worth participating in.

So, our [inaudible] to use a human word, our essence, to use my terminology, is being brought to bear upon this unfoldment of shift in the consciousness. This is not unconscious, this is not subconscious. So this is a conscious process, an event, if you choose, and it is also, at the same time, the consciousness, as you know, of the heart fully awakening, of the spirit fully awakening, of the soul fully awakening and anchoring in form.

Now, when I say I bring our focus to this, is it all of our focus — the Father and mine? Of course not. But the energies that are brought with what you think of as the Company of Heaven, the ascended ones, and the Father and I, is far beyond your comprehension. And it is certainly adequate to accomplishing this transition. And as this transition is completed, including the shift in your structures, then you will continue on.

This is the beginning, not the end. Each of you, each of you is infinite and eternal. Will the day come in terms of what you think of as time, when you will simply re-emerge? Yes. But even that is an instant.

So, the Divine Plan, let me be very concrete with all of you, is to leave the old Third [dimension] behind. You are making peace with this and therefore with yourself, your families, your community, your planet. Even as we speak it is leaving that behind as if you would leave a cloak or an old skin behind, activating as you do different markers of your DNA, becoming more capable of holding the higher frequencies — and most of you are well underway; some of you are completely done — new form, but still looking as you do, or how you choose to appear, because that is part of interdimensional reality.

As you activate different markers within your DNA, within your crystalline form, you may restore yourself to 22 or be 75 — it matters not. And in that form, you will be the embodiment of love.

Yes, this channel has joked about this transition from carbon to crystalline. (1) Why do you think we have been so emphatic with her about working with the diamond energy, asking each of you? It is part of this transformation. Does this answer your question?

SB: It certainly does, Mother. And again I have to tell listeners what a joy it is to work with you, because you answer my questions before I ask them. And it makes my job very easy.

I want to confess that I’m one of those people who have said I’m not going to be a puppet and follow a Divine Plan! I have my own free will in the matter. And then I have another thought, that I really am, at essence, the Father. So, this really is my plan!

DM: That is correct. And that is the wisdom emerging. It is the maturity of the soul to know. It is the immature — and we would say adolescent, but very often adolescents are far more mature than adults— but shall we say the spiritual young one who fights and thinks that there is a controlling authority. There is not! It is — and that is why I have put the emphasis. This is not just the Divine Plan. This is your plan.

Does truth lurk in darkness or is there a light that could help reveal truth?

Can real TRUTH ever be found?

Is there any ABSOLUTE TRUTH?
Are there ABSOLUTES to be found, anywhere?

Is TRUTH within you?
Is TRUTH within me?

In philosophy, Epistemology is the study of the sources of knowledge and of the methods for obtaining knowledge. There are numerous philosophical theories concerning “truth” and its sources that have been around since the time of the Greeks. However, few theories endure as originally devised for more than 1, 2, or 3 generations. When the next generation realizes that the past conjectures did not answer life’s questions, a new guru makes his or her debut to seeking souls. His or Her smooth presentation is persuasive and is picked up by professors, publishers, and a curious populace.

four agreements

http://experiencelife.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/28-the-four-agreements.pdf

The fifth agreement encourages us to see the truth, to recover our authenticity, and to change the message we deliver not only to ourselves, but to everyone around us.    http://www.amazon.com/Fifth-Agreement…/dp/1878424610

Ideas to explore:

  • Women forfeited power so that men could experience power. Actually, mothers forfeited power so that their sons could experience power. But that went too far. So women are now reclaiming the power of the Divine Feminine. (Mamayah)
  • Chapter 1 and 2 of Behold The Pale Horse by Milton William Cooper (1991) references to scientists and ecologists hired to manipulate resources. (Amira)
  • People tell their truths through the story, parable, and allegory.
  • History is defining others for your own benefit.
  • Giving yourself the benefit of the doubt.
  • We are vibration. Consider that Gaia, Mother Earth has been changing for millennia through earthquakes, storms, and volcanic eruptions. It is impossible for mankind that lives only one century to understand much about Earth changes over millennia.
  • Research the 6th, 7th, and 8th dimensions. (Mamayah)
  • Research ‘monatomics’ or non-metallic elements. A monatomic ion is an ion consisting of a single atom. If an ion contains more than one atom, even if these atoms are of the same element, it is called a polyatomic ion. For example, calcium carbonate consists of the monatomic ion Ca2+ and the polyatomic ion CO32.
  • Take off your shoes and get grounded. (Tom)
  • Feel the future through now and the past and then, witness truth. One person can create but it takes two or more to witness it as truth. (Egypt)

Ancient Crone Mother Goddess

maidenmothercroneIn the first chapter of The Celestial Ship of The North (Straiton, 1992) it states that in the Vision of Hermas the Holy Spirit was called ‘The Old Woman’ who was the first of all creation.

Tonight We Celebrate THE ANCIENT CRONE MOTHER GODDESS

We are honoring the aging woman’s value to society.

thecroneWho is Crone?

We use the term crone to reference, and to reclaim, the name of the wise woman of ancient times. The concept of crone existed tens of thousands of years ago when women’s life patterns were conceptualized in three stages — Maiden, Mother, and Crone. The Maiden was the youthful, independent woman. The Mother was a woman who guided others–as a biological mother or as a teacher. The Crone was the postmenopausal woman who enjoyed a special, revered status. The elder woman was viewed as a fount of wisdom, law, healing skills, and moral leadership; her presence and leadership were treasured at every significant tribal ceremony and each personal occasion from birth to death. In that light, we three Sister Crones consistently focus on the empowerment and well-being of older women and claim the honored status of the ancient crone for contemporary women.

We use the Crone to assist us in transition from one life to the next, leaving one level of our existence and entering the next. This brings us into the Womb of the Mother to assist us in being reborn once again. For it is through Her Wisdom and guidance we learn lessons from experience past and begin life anew from the wisdom gained.

The Crone is a symbol of inherent wisdom that comes from experience. She has lived through love, sorrow, hope, and fear, coming out of it all a wise and confident spirit. Through these experiences she has learned the secrets of life and death and of the mysteries beyond this world.

The Crone is the Grandmother, the Old One, the Earth Mother, the Wise One we turn to when we need advice. She teaches us that sometimes we must let go in order to move on.

The word Crone, in its most simplistic sense, designates an old woman, a woman past her childbearing years, a post-menopausal woman. Today, the most common definition of a Crone is a “wise old woman.” Thus, a Crone is a woman who has moved past mid-life and who acknowledges her survivorship, embraces her age, learns from the examined experience of her life, and, most likely, appreciates the wrinkles on her face.

A Crone is a woman concerned with housing, social security, pensions, healthcare, her relationships with children, grandchildren, and siblings. A Crone is a retired woman, a soon-to-be retired woman, a widow, an empty nester who desires good health, energetic living, and independence. A Crone is a woman who is adapting constructively, often gracefully, to the process of aging. A Crone is a woman who is comfortable with her spiritual self, her intuition, and her creative power.

A Crone may be a woman of any color, race, religion, sexual orientation, economic status, educational level, lifestyle, or political persuasion. She may be disabled or abled, introvert or extrovert, single, married, widowed, or partnered. She is like you and me. What does set the Crone apart, however, is her willingness to tell the truth about her life.

Crone women fly directly into the face of ageism and sexism. They refuse to be put down. They do not walk meekly on the road to old age. They are keen to assert their presence if not their influence.

Crone provides an energetic consciousness, a radical aliveness, which fuels the fierceness of women’s strength in old age. Crone is a framework for honoring the wisdom of elder women. Crone is a template for communication, community, and communion. Crone is a basis for cooperation and compassion for all living beings. Such a consciousness allows for action in the world or for deep, quiet peacefulness with all that is.

Thus, a Crone is an older woman who has learned to walk in her own truth, in her own way, having gained her strength by acknowledging the power and wisdom of the totality of her experience. She is “a wise old woman.” As a woman moves past youth and midlife into old age she consciously takes on the mantel of Crone – a woman who celebrates her survivorship, willingly choosing to continue forward in life with all the gusto she can muster. A Crone is a woman burnished bright by an inner fire that sharpens both her wit and her intensity, her passion and her power.

The mythological Ancient Crone Mother comes to us from the mists of ancient times. The goddess was revered as one all-encompassing mother goddess who controlled birth, death, and rebirth. As patriarchy began to arise after c.7000 BCE, this concept began to change as women themselves became increasingly under the dominion of men. The one mother goddess image was split into three aspects reflecting the stages of women’s lives – maiden, mother, and crone. The crone goddess represented the older woman aspect of a woman’s life.

The connection between women today and the ancient goddesses, according to Jung’s psychology is that “women are influenced by powerful inner forces, or archetypes, which can be personified by … goddesses.” These attributes live on today in the collective unconscious as an archetype. An archetype is a pattern of instinctual behavior that is contained in the collective unconscious – a part of the unconscious mind – that is not individual but universal, with contents and modes of behavior that are more or less the same in all cultures and in all individuals. The crone goddess represents the archetype of the older woman.

When patriarchy became the dominant mode, when the divine was imaged solely as male, and as women became second-class citizens, the ideas about goddesses and the archetypes they represented went underground. Archetypes can be submerged, but they never disappear; and as women today are reclaiming their power, these archetypes are re-emerging. There is a burgeoning interest in this ancient part of women’s herstory, and the crone archetype is resurfacing as a model for elder women. Women are coming into their own as individuals, stronger and more comfortable with who they are and in speaking for themselves. Women are joining collectively as well in what some are calling a new Crone Movement.

Crone, hag, and witch once were positive words for old women. Crone comes from crown, indicating wisdom emanating from the head; hag comes from hagio meaning holy; and witch comes from wit meaning wise. Crones, hags, and witches were leaders, midwives and healers in their communities. The meanings of these three words, however, were distorted and eventually reversed during the 300 years of the Inquisition when the male-dominated church wanted to eliminate women holding positions of power. Women identified as witches, who were often older women, i.e. crones and hags, were tortured and burned, and the words witch, crone, and hag took on the negative connotations that continue in our language. The Crone Movement, however, is re-claiming the positive meanings of these words.

The Crone began re-emerging into our consciousness in the early 1980s, and today many older women are embracing this connection. We are tapping into the ancient crone’s attributes of wisdom, compassion, transformation, healing laughter, and bawdiness. The ancient crone archetype strengthens our belief and confidence in age-accumulated knowledge, insights and intuitions enabling women to stand up for their rights.

We will not be invisible, ignored, or treated unfairly. We are coming together in circles and gatherings to support each other.

The Crone Goddess or dark mother is the last aspect of the Triple Goddess, together with the Mother and the Maiden she represents part of the circle of life. In today’s society where we worship youth and beauty, this aspect of the Goddess is the most frightening and misunderstood of the three, as she represents our destruction, decay and death. Traditional societies however, view death as part of a cycle. Here, as in nature, the death of Winter is Spring.

In her book, The Crone: Woman of Age, Wisdom, and Power, Barbara G. Walker discusses just how disturbing the image of the old woman, and thus, the Crone, has been to patriarchal religious worldviews. She points out that in many ways, the Crone was the female equivalent to the image of God, as a wise-looking old man with his white beard up in heaven. While Christianity could include a version of the Virgin, and even a Mother (both found in Mary), there was no place to include a Crone that was not threatening. So, over time, Her image became perverted. But it could not be destroyed. She became the Wicked Old Witch, an archetype that is so deeply engrained in the imaginations of us all, beginning in childhood that is it difficult to undo. But this is not the only negative propaganda aimed at the Crone.

Old women in our society are the least-valued members of the population. We see the aging process as something to be avoided at all costs, or at least hidden. And in particular, our prejudice against age is focused on women. Ultimately, Walker believes that this is a continuation of the suppression of the Crone, and reflects deep fear of the wisdom and power of women as well as a fear of something that cannot be controlled nor avoided – death.

The Crone Has Many Names. Here are a few of the well-known Crone Goddesses:

  • hekate2HEKATE a very ancient pre-Greek goddess of the dark moon, She may have been a form of the earlier Egyptian Heket, and assimilated into the Greek pantheon as Hecate. She is the goddess of the Crossroads, and presides over the underworld, magick and ritual, prophecy, and childbirth (as protector). Originally seen as a threefold goddess, she was later demonized by early patriarchal religion as the Queen of the Witches, and an ugly old hag.
  • CERRIDWEN is a Welsh crone, best known for her cauldron of regeneration, transformation, and inspiration. She rules over death, but over rebirth as well. Cerridwen was also a Triple Goddess; in her crone aspect, she is seen as a “white, corpse-eating Sow representing the moon.” (Barbara G. Walker, The Women’s Encylopedia of Myths and Secrets).
  • Demetra -“The dark goddess of many names was the prophetess and holder of mysteries. She bestowed dreams, visions, and magickal knowledge whereby one could fathom the mysteries of the unknown, and this understanding of secret and hidden things brought power in itself.”
  • KALI: the Indian goddess of death, destruction, and Kalitransformation. Kali is rather fearsome and terrifying, but She also has Her nurturing aspect as well. We might think of her as destroying what needs to be destroyed so that something new can take its place. Kali is often shown wearing red, and is strongly associated with blood, representing both life and death. (A more detailed discussion of Kali can be found in Barbara G. Walker’s The Women’s Encylopedia of Myths and Secrets).
  • The MORRIGAN: Ancient Irish trinity of war and death goddesses, strongly associated with magic and the battlefield. Most commonly associated with the image of the crow or raven. The Crone aspect of the Morrigan is Macha, sometimes called “Mother Death.” (Patricia Monaghan, The New Book of Goddessess and Heroines, and Barbara G. Walker, The Women’s Encylopedia of Myths and Secrets).
  • CAILLECH: The Winter Hag of Scotland and Ireland. In her mythology, she is often portrayed as deceptively strong and outliving many husbands. She is sometimes associated with disease. (Walker, The Women’s Encylopedia of Myths and Secrets).
  • Grandmother Spiderwoman (Native American) – An old wise woman who gave man the sun and fire.
  • Ereshkigal (Sumerian) – Goddess of the Underworld
  • Estsanatlehi (Native American) – Goddess of life, death and immortality.
  • Lilith (Hebrew) – Adams first wife and guardian of women’s mysteries.
  • Nephthys (Egyptian) – A funerary Goddess associated with death, magic and reincarnation.
  • Sedna (Inuit) – Mistress of life and death.
  • XochiQuetzal (Mexican) – Goddess of the cycles of life celebrated on the Day Of the Dead.

Seeking the Crone

The most natural time for a woman to seek the Crone is at menopause, as she approaches her own cronehood. However, the Crone has great relevance and significance to women and men, of all ages.

For instance:

  • When there is a need to end something
  • When some project or cycle has come to completion
  • When there is the need or desire to do “shadow work,” exploring the unconscious realm, some trauma, negativity, depression
  • To improve psychic skills and abilities – mediumship, contacting guides, meditation journeys, prophecy and divination, and especially scrying, which is a Crone art
  • When there is a feeling of being threatened, outcast, or maligned
  • When there is a need to put the past behind you and start anew
  • When there is a need to retreat, rest, and hibernate
  • When dealing with the aging process, in yourself and in others
  • When facing death, your own or that of a loved one
  • When there is a desire to explore the deep mysteries
  • In order to connect with the ancestors
  • During the menstrual period, when faced with the “inner hag”
  • When there is a need for deep wisdom and advice
  • She can help you remember the cycles of life, if you are experiencing a loss.

Invoke these Goddesses to help you face your deepest fears. Despite their fierce ways and appearance, they offer great wisdom to those prepared to look upon their faces.

The Crones encourage us to be wild and free, they show us the strength and courage within us all.

I Proclaim these words to the Ancient Mother:

 

cherylwooding

Celah Eliana Bey

They have largely forgotten you and follow gods … but in the stillness of the moonlit night you are there … the one who is She.

Ancient Mother, I hear you calling. Ancient Mother, I hear your song.

It dawned on me that part of the spiritual task of accepting ourselves as we are is to accept ourselves at the age we are. Wishing we were younger – or older – is not only ridiculous, since there’s nothing we can do to change our age, it’s also a total waste of time. The past is gone, the future hasn’t happened and the only true reality is the present moment. Living fully in each moment is, as all the sages from every wisdom tradition agree is the only key to happiness and contentment.

Now, as the baby boomers start turning sixty, I notice a lot of ‘Eek! Freak! Squeak!’ going on. A lot of denial, too. Plug the phrase ‘anti-aging’ into Google and you get an unbelievable 2,670,000 entries. Cosmetic surgery, Botox, thousands of dollars are being spent every day by women trying to look Younger than they are, while half the world’s children starve. What’s wrong with this picture? But I must try not to judge my sisters harshly. I mustn’t forget how I felt, that day I saw myself in the mirror and realized that my hair was two colors, black with a lot of gray.

Since we live in a culture that is fixated on youth, all of us, to some degree, have absorbed the (erroneous) message that young is beautiful and old is ugly, even though, deep down, we know that the only true beauty comes from within. I believe instead of pandering to it we owe it to ourselves and to our daughters and granddaughters to change this stupid, outdated conditioning. We owe it to ourselves to strip away the shallow standards of ‘beauty’ that the fashion industry, the cosmetics industry and most of all the advertising industry all feed on. We’re being exploited, and it is time we stood up and said a huge “NO!”

Nobody warned me that menopause is a passage into another form of life. Maybe it is as well they didn’t. After all, how do you go on feeling smart, sexy, capable, confident and all around good about yourself if you know you are gradually turning into an elderly woman, a hag, a witch, a crone. It bothered me and I panicked. My pre-menstrual syndrome was no longer pre- anything. It was most of the month, with a few good days scattered here and there like islands in a large ocean. My normally sharp thought processes were going blunt so alarmingly fast that I thought I was getting Alzheimer’s. In place of a brain, I now seemed to have what felt like a wodge of thick cotton. Worst of all, my libido was going through the floor. No-one had warned me about any of that. My mother had sailed through menopause – or so she said – with no symptoms at all except that her periods stopped one day when she was fifty-five and never came back. That was it. End of story. Not even one hot flash. All my friends were the same age as me or younger. There was no-one to reassure me.

It was the mid-1980s, and the “medical model” ruled. HRT was rapidly becoming the flavor of the month. But I was an alternative health nut sort of a person and I instinctively recoiled from the idea of messing with my hormones. I decided to tough it out. The more I thought about it, though, the more I started wondering if I could do more than simply tough it out.

On the outside, I was trying to keep my “normal” life together, while this other stuff was happening on the inside. Hot flashes happened, wherever I was. So on the outside, I just made jokes about it like everyone else, took my jacket on and off, fanned my face and drank lots of cold water. On the inside, I was saying to myself: “Steady, girl. You’re doing fine.

That way, each hot flash, rather than being a pesky nuisance, was a transformational process, bringing me one step closer to my new self. Would that new self ever emerge?

My periods stopped. After I had not had one for a while, I started to regret that I hadn’t marked their ending with some sort of ritual. But how can you mark the last of something if you don’t know it is the last? When I realized that I would never see my own menstrual blood again, that thought made me inexplicably sad. Yes, I, too, had often referred to it as “the curse.” But it was part of my womanliness, for all that. Now it was over. So I had to grieve.

During that long time in the menopause, I discovered that there were many things which needed to be consciously mourned and let go: my ability to bear children, my youthful looks, my sexual juiciness and so on. There was a lot of work to do. And as I let go of these old definitions of myself, I had no idea what would take their place. It was as though I had to clear the space, first. So sometimes, it was scary.

I was fifty-five years old. A whole new energy seemed to be stirring within me. I went back to school to get a degree in Architecture and Interior Design. I was entering a completely new phase of my life.

The most radical thing we can do – and the most beneficial – is to dare to be ourselves, as we are, old, gray and proud of it. I earned every one of these gray hairs I see in the mirror and the tiny wrinkles forming near my eyes.  I love it. It actually suits me better than black ever did and the whiter it gets, the better I look in my favorite black dress. And I like wearing glasses when I read or use my computer. They really suit me – and they disguise the fact that I really have no eyebrows worth speaking of. They make me look intellectual.

At 72, I’m not as fit and trim as I used to be, but I’m happy and full of vitality. I love being old. I’m having the time of my life. So are lots of the other, ‘natural’ elder women I know, in their sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties, even beyond. We are being ourselves. And we are beautiful, each in our own way, just the way we are, wrinkles, white hair, glasses and all.

I love being a Crone. ‘Please Call Me an Old Hag.” As Crone means crowned one. And hag comes from the Greek hagia, or sacred. Knowing this, who wouldn’t want to claim being a Crone?

When I fill out forms, I don’t mark Single (though I am widowed), Married (though I have been twice), Divorced (though I have been once, ), nor Head of Household (though I am, me and myself ). I make and mark another box and I put FREE Crone.

Even with fixed income, ill health sometimes, my life is an adventure, for the flower still awaits, not necessarily to be picked, but to be savored for its fragrance.

So what if our youth-worshipping society has written us off? We’re told we are decrepit and powerless, but actually we’re just invisible. And because we’re invisible, we can do ANYTHING and no one will notice.

Not only can we wear purple, we can wear neon green, hot pink, orange stripes with polka dots, or nothing at all. We don’t have to dye our hair or set it in short tight curls; we can wear it long, loose and uncut, locs, braids – or in a brush cut, bowl cut, or shaved off completely.

We can be outrageous, flaunt ourselves and demand attention. We can be Maudes and take young lovers. We can go places alone, do what we’ve always wanted to do, be what we’ve always wanted to be—now.

But often we don’t. For it’s hard to believe the opposite of what we’ve been spoon-fed for years: that older women are pitiful, useless no-good hags. It helps to be surrounded by others who have chucked off such narrow notions. Crone Circles are the answer.

We need Crone Circles to strengthen ourselves, and to reclaim our rightful roles in society. Crones were once midwives of both birth and death, and leaders of puberty, marriage and other ceremonies honoring fecundity and life.

We are the anchors, watchers, guardians, healers, storytellers. We are also Baubo, of the bawdy wise sexuality. We are roots, trees, mountains; we are the web of the world.

So what if our youth-worshipping society has written us off? We’re told we are decrepit and powerless, but actually we’re just invisible. And because we’re invisible, we can do ANYTHING and no one will notice.

In Crone Circles we can validate ourselves–our existence, our lives, our feelings, our truths. We can share our wisdom and experience. But how can we find each other? We’re not likely to find companions in bars, churches, bridge clubs, senior centers, or inside the covers of Modern Maturity.

I found my particular Crone Circle with Crone Sisters Joan and MyRah.

We began with several different purposes. Some women are scared by menopause, some seek role models. Some professional counselors and caregivers seek support and renewal. Others simply just seek fun with other confessed crones. But all of us should seek the wise women who can teach us from their experiences. We’ve been meeting weekly via conference calls. We share leadership, each bringing insights from our talents and gifts. After a lifetime of being ordered around by parents, husbands, children, and bosses, it’s so relaxing to have no set leader. We are at a time in our lives when we are all leaders. Usually whoever hosts the gathering convenes the circle, and may set a topic. Joan has been initiating the calls.

The talking circle is the essence of crone support. Its structure is both simple and empowering. Whoever holds the talking stick (mentally) has the floor. When finished, she passes to the next until all have had a turn. No one interrupts. Everyone listens with respect. Thus the sharing goes deep.

It is a concept which is all about that ‘rapture of being alive’ in an aging woman’s body.

The Crone, the Great Grandmother of us all. We salute her wisdom and experience, her calm and her grace, her steadfastness and her love.  She has much to give and teach us.

Our intent, the Crone Trinity, is to gather with young and older women to share their histories and counsel with each other. Our notion is that we learn most, and probably best, as older women by sharing the wisdom borne out of our life experiences in an environment which promotes equality, encourages diversity, and supports personal empowerment.  Our thought is that our personal and collective wisdom helps us grow and learn through discussing our similarities as well as our differences.

So Ancient Mother, I hear you calling. Ancient Mother, I hear your sound. Ancient Mother, I hear your laughter, Ancient Mother, I taste your tears. I close by wishing all of the Mothers on the call “A Happy Mother’s Day” and for those of you who are not yet Mothers or have decided not to be, I Wish You Peace and love and I yield.

This is a ritual for Crones to raise their spiritual level and also a poem about Crones.

Ritual: Invoking the Crone Within

Intent and Purpose: To meet the wise and powerful Crone, and to acknowledge and embrace Her deep presence already within.

Items Needed:

  1. 13 black votive candles
  2. One large black Crone candle
  3. Incense: Hecate or any incense associated protection, psychic ability, and wisdom
  4. Cinnamon, clove, lavender, and sage
  5. A shallow bowl or dish of water for scrying
  6. A black cloak or cloth large enough to put around your shoulders (optional)
  7. White powder for hair and face, black eyeliner pencil
  8. Small mirror
  9. Your journal and pen

Preparation: To be performed on the night of the Dark Moon, for this time belongs solely to the Crone. You might like to fast for several hours before you plan to do the ritual, and also to observe a period of silence beforehand. Before you begin the ritual, take a bath. Use whatever procedures you like to focus on cleansing and purification. Also think about opening up your psychic self. You might like to use a specific incense and/or essential oils that feel appropriate for this purpose while you bathe. Remove all traces of make-up and shampoo your hair. Come to the sacred space cleansed and open to the Crone within. Sacred Space: Prepare yourself, take your ritual bath, dress in something black. Arrange the candle votives in a circle, large enough for you sit in the center. Place the Crone candle inside the circle at the North, with the dish of water, the mirror, the powder, the eye pencil, the black cloak or cloth, and your journal. Smudge the area around your circle of candles with your incense. Smudge yourself, then step inside the circle of candles and sit down, putting the incense down and facing North and the Crone candle. You are ready to cast the circle.

Cast the Circle: You cast the circle by slowly lighting the ring of black votives in a clockwise direction, beginning with candle #1, where candle #13 is directly at North. As you light the candles, one by one, say these words:

Crone of Power, Ancient One
I light the fires
The circle begun
Crone of Dark and Mystery too
Within the circle
I’ll find you
Crone of All, oh Holy One!
Enter now
So be it done!

You may wish to call the elements to watch over your circle.

Body of Ritual

Light the large black Crone candle, saying:

I light the fires of Wisdom. I invite you in, my Crone.

Take the black cloth or cloak and wrap it around your shoulders, or simply visualize yourself wrapped by the Crone’s black cloak of protection, wisdom, and inner strength. You are embraced by the cloak of the Crone. Know that you are safe here and protected from all harm.

Pick up the mirror and gaze at your own reflection for a moment. Then, put some of the white powder in your hair, then on your face using fingertips. Now take the black eye pencil and gently trace all the fine lines you see, around eyes, mouth, and wherever you see them. Know that as you do this, you are invoking the Crone, and bring forth the Crone within. This is Her face. Look at your Crone reflection. What do you see here? How does your reflection make you feel?

Put the mirror down, and place the bowl of water in front of the Crone candle. Scrying (foretell the future using a crystal ball or other reflective object or surface) is the Crone’s art! Simply gaze into the water. Let your eyes soften as you gaze into your Crone reflection there in the water. Take your time. What do you see? Make note of any images, thoughts, or feelings that may come to you. Be open to whatever impressions come and don’t try to analyze them now. Just let them come.

When it feels you are finished with the scrying, put the bowl of water aside and look back to the Crone candle. Feel the power that comes from within you. Feel the wisdom that radiates from your Crone self. Feel the protective cloak of the Crone around your shoulders. This is the time to pray, meditate, or talk to the Crone.

Closing the Ritual: Know that She is already within, and you can call upon Her anytime you need Her.

Thank the Crone for Her presence, guidance in this ritual, and whatever is appropriate as a result of your ritual as you extinguish the Crone candle.

Thank the elements for watching over your ritual and bid farewell.

The circle candles are extinguished counterclockwise, one by one, as you chant these words, over and over until all the candles are out:

The circle is open, but never broken
The wisdom of the Crone is within

Ground any excess energy by writing in your journal now and using other grounding techniques of your choice as necessary.

I Am The Crone
