The Cosmic Mother is the archetype of all things relating to the feminine face of God, Goddess, Source energy, etc. Open Inward to Eternal Wisdom is deeply influenced by my lifelong pursuit to embody the archetype of the Cosmic Mother. That may sound grand, but this seeking of the feminine expression of Source Energy is innate to many women and even some feminist men. I’ve seen this inherent feminine principle in little girls even as young as 12 months of age who instinctively bring their baby doll to their bosom (nurturing, loving and protection).
Gaia, Cosmic Mother, Divine Mother, Mother of the Universe, All That Is, Kannon, Kwan Yin, Guanyin (a translation from the Sanskrit Avalokitesvara or Avalokiteśvara, referring to the Mahāyāna bodhisattva of the same name), Chenrezig, the Virgin Mary, Guadalupe (Arab derived word meaning River of Light) and Tonantzin (the Aztec goddess Our Mother).
Personally, as a woman, I feel privileged to create opportunities in my life to be the embodiment of the Cosmic Mother’. One of those areas is during my work.
I enjoy consciously connecting to my innate feminine nature. I love showing up in the world as a supportive person, offering protection, safe harbouring, genuine praise, nurturing, and of course, feeding others (with food but also love and kindness, wisdom and sometimes stringent medicine). Anyone who enters my physical or virtual space is treated in this fashion.
The embodiment of the Cosmic Mother is also about expressing a desire to be creative and use our intuition to navigate our life’s challenges in balance with our Divine Masculine qualities of logic and reason.
Being the Cosmic Mother’s embodiment is innate to us all. Our feminine embodiment is a source of herself-authority, sovereignty, inspiration, and transcendence for many women. Even if she has disconnected from her feminine aspect or been violated or rejected by her feminine gender, the Cosmic Mother calls out to her, sensing her silenced voice.
We lose this delicate balance with the Cosmic Mother when we disconnect from the qualities she upholds. In this patriarchal world, we have many imbalances that contribute to global calamity. The oppression, discrimination, abuse, disrespect of women and girls results from the disconnection and disrespect of the Cosmic Mother and our Earth.
The insanity of our diminished connection to the Cosmic Mother is that we are dependent upon the Earth and its continued fertility. Historically, the Cosmic Mother was revered until an abrupt shift from Matriarchy to Patriarchy (around 3000 BCE).
Since that shift, it is harder to maintain balance and function as a woman in a patriarchal world, especially when and where the Great Goddess of mercy, compassion and protection is violated.
The Cosmic Mother is the essence of love, happiness, and liberation from suffering in her balanced form.
You meet your Conscious Higher Self and deepest desires when you activate the virtual temple. Ask for her assistance. Instantly she reaches out to you. Extend your hand to hers, receive her fully in your heart with gratitude.
We will continue to learn more about Kannon in the coming weeks. (-:
