Feminine Energy

Feminine ENergy Card

In my last post about Our Lady of Guadalupe, I shared Our Lady’s comforting words. One day I was making a collage of Our Lady to send to someone going through a difficult time. The background lines I placed behind her,  made me think of power and light. It reminded me of Sr. Macrina Wiedkerkehrs words about feminine energy in her book A Tree Full of Angels, Seeing the Holy in the Ordinary, published by Harper Collins:

Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in Santa Fe

Our Lady of Guadalupe in Santa Fe
I discovered this church/shrine a comforting place to be, a refuge,  while I was in Santa Fe one summer. It kind of felt like being in Divine Mother’s womb, so safe and warm.The words of Our Lady of Guadalupe came to mind, as I was praying for my brother, Rene, who was at the time struggling with pancreatic cancer:

Be Lovers of Your Souls

 

This evening, I attended the 6th day of a 9-day prayer devotion to St. Clare of Assisi at a Poor Clare monastery. Right after the adoration of Christ in the form of consecrated bread, a priest gave a talk about St. Clare’s final words. I believe that her purity and constant love for God and others gave her words a lot of power. It must have been something she prayed each day in some form or other. Her presence was so palpable and living in the priest’s speaking of her words:

Be Yourself

 

This is a collaborative collage I did with my friends Joya, Lorraine, Denise, Christine, Kirpal and Margaret for Amma’s Circle of Love Letters. I believe Joya began this collage and we all added to it, or decided not to add something.

It reminds me of a song by Cindy Lauper. These are part of the lyrics:

Soft and Tender Name

This is a collaborative collage I did for Amma’s Circle of Love with Christine, Denise, Lorraine, Kirpal, Joya and Margaret. I cannot remember now where all the images came from, but the quote is from Christine’s German  calendar. She translated it as:

“Everything asks to be caressed and called by its soft and tender name.”

You Are a Child of the Universe

YouAreChildUniverse

Shortly after my husband died in 2003, I began to write for Amma’s Circle of Love Letters. I had received a few cards when my husband was ill. The writers assured me of their prayers, and shared positive quotes with me. I received much comfort. I decided to join the writing group since I benefited so much from it. At first I had a lot of reservation about writing, as I had never received good grades in English. So far, no one has complained about my sentence structures or grammar. The process of thinking of others helped pull me out of depression.
