Garden of the Goddess

Prior to attending the teacher training with Robert Moss this past summer, I had this dream;

The Gateway 7-2013

I see an image of and ancient stone gateway, with a stone guardian statue that I recognize as being from a period that Robert Moss would know. It is the body of a lion and the head of a woman, and is more in the style of Greek sculptures.  I swing through the goddess gateway and find myself at the dream teacher retreat.   EOD

I did feel as though my dreams literally brought me to the dream teacher training in July of 2013 to complete the final level of the training.  It was as if I was brought by some greater force than my own. I was not planning to attend, thinking there would not be enough resources for me to take that trip this time. Somehow upon sharing some of my dreams in the weeks leading up to the training, my partner insisted that I go. “You have to go,” he said. It became clear that my dreams were pointing my way there, and so I arrived at the training as though swinging through the gateway of the goddess.

Not long after, returning home from the training, it became clear to me that it was time for me to leave Dallas and move to New Mexico. In the weeks leading up to making my move here to the Garden of the Goddess in Cerrillos New Mexico, I had a several other goddess dreams that once again had the effect of propelling my life forward.

Becoming the Lioness Goddess Gate Guardian

I am a woman with very large breasts like those of a nursing mother. I am standing by the gateway of the Lioness gate. The guardian is a woman sphinx with the head and bust of a woman and the body of a lioness. Robert Moss stands near the gate with me, he is telling me, “You will have to do this for yourself.”

Is it to step through the gate perhaps or/and become the guardian? It seemed it was more of a guardian, that my role there was to be present. My role there was also to bring forth the nurturing energy, that was held in my very large breasts, which I could not conceal. EOD.

Spanish Hexagon Bee Goddess 8-5-13

I see a woman with her hair pulled back in a Spanish styled bun. She lives in Santa Fe and she is a bee goddess from Spain. She is me. I see the hexagon energy she carries with her wherever she goes and it is connected to the greater hive of hexagons that other goddesses carry. Her power is considerable and strong, she is self assured, but loving, kind and nurturing. She is connected to the old ways and embodies them. She has a kind of fluid wisdom that exists in her every movement and gesture. The etheric energy hexagon she carries in her hand, is how she creates her reality. EOD

In taking these three powerful dreams of the goddess and guardians of the goddess together, with how my life has changed so dramatically over the past 2 months, and finding myself living at The Garden of the Goddess, no less, I am drawn to the fact that the power of the land where I now live, carries an immense healing and nurturing energy. It is something that I am getting to know in my self and in my larger self. The yurt where I now hold dream circles on the full moon of each month houses a dark virgin goddess, who was brought from Indonesia. The mystery of the dark feminine and the Great Mother Goddess, the connection with Cybil and the Lioness Goddesses of Greece and Turkey, and the tradtition of the ancient bee Melissae Bee Goddesses are all coming forth in this place for me. It is my hope that I will continue to dream and embody this ancient wisdom and mystery traditions of the Goddess and I feel blessed that she, in her many forms, has chosen me as worthy.

On the Dark Moon, I will be forming a Women’s Mystery Dream Circle each month in Santa Fe. If you live in the area and would like to participate, please send me a note and I will give you more information.

    1. Thank you Lory, I am blessed to be in relationship with dreaming, and the many gifts they have brought me through my life. I feel deeply grateful for being supported by teachers along the way, and the empowering presence of the goddess, to give me the courage and strength to step out onto a new path in my life.
