~Mawu- Doreen Virtue Goddess Guidance Oracle Deck
"Mawu is a West African moon goddess. She helps those who call upon her to live in harmony with nature, and to respect its resources. She ensures that our needs are abundantly supplied without causing harm to the planet."
Anyone who knows me knows that I adore nature. The seasons of life inspire my heart in such rich and profound ways. The depths of the trees, the breezes off the ocean, the smell of fall in the air. I just adore the cycles and rhythms of life. As I read through the description of this card, I wasn't quite sure of its importance until my friend and I began discussing it.
I sighed as I furrowed my brow, "I'm not really feeling called to this card in the way that it is being explained."
As my friend listened to the description of the card, she thoughtfully translated this card's meaning into a new sense of environmentalism. She closed her eyes and then offered, "What if you think of this connection with the Earth in an energetic way?"
I leaned off of the edge of my seat! Both of us began to chatter back and forth, and as we did, it became clear that there are so many ways in which we can become activists for the Earth, for Gaia.
The emotions that we send out into the world become potential pollutants or salve for the Earth. As the Course in Miracles deduces, every thought we have becomes a thought that supports love or supports fear. Our thoughts become powerful energetic conductors. They scatter on the wind. They bake in the heat of the sun. They sprout up like seedlings from the soil of the Earth. They emerge from the depths of the ocean. The ground that we walk upon absorbs our thoughts and beliefs. We have an energetic responsibility to offer kindness and gratitude to the Earth. We can do this through recycling and living a green life, but also by shifting our energy as we move throughout our days.
Today I invite you to become even more aware of the energy that you bring with you as you walk the Earth. May your steps be peaceful and your heart be free.
May You Sweetly Seek:)
