Use Your Womb To Activate World Consciousness | Seven Sisters Mystery School Photo credit: © 2009 Exper G. R. – exper.3drecursions.com In sacred ceremony, I was given a powerful visualization to pass on to women worldwide as a means of reestablishing our oracular connection with one another, with Gaia, and with the Great Cosmic Womb. This is a simple but potent visualization you can do to reestablish the “Womb Grid” on the planet –– the network by which women of consciousness can receive and transmit high-level information designed to stimulate the further awakening of humanity. Why Womb? Thus, Gaia is a womb portal nested within the Great Cosmic Womb. This is not to “reduce women down” to being “mere” uterine receptacles. For the womb is a transmitter and receiver on many levels. This reality was honored by our most ancient ancestors in their cosmologies, and is still honored by many traditions today. Do This Five Minutes a Day The visualization is simple but powerful. Ask Gaia permission to ground deeply into her. Comments comments

10 Amazing Little-Known Vacation Spots Jacob's Well, Wimberley, Texas Jacob’s Well is a significant karstic spring, the largest perennial spring in the Texas Hill Country. It flows from the most extensive underwater cave in Texas, opening in the bed of Cypress Creek, a few miles north of Wimberley, Texas.The twelve foot (four meter) diameter mouth of the cave serves as a popular swimming and water recreation spot for the local land owners whose properties adjoin Cypress Creek. From the opening in the creek bed, Jacob’s Well descends vertically for about thirty feet (ten meters), continuing from there at an angle as a series of chambers separated by narrow, often deeply silted and unstable necks, ultimately reaching a depth of at least one hundred and twenty feet (forty meters). From the dawn of recorded history until the modern era, the Trinity Aquifer-fed natural artesian spring gushed water from the mouth of the cave and as much as thirty feet (ten meters) into the air. At least eight divers have lost their lives while exploring Jacob’s Well.

Animals Illuminated by the Sun The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun’s disk disappears below the horizon in the west. There are few things in nature as photogenic as the sky at sunset, especially animals. The rich bright gold, pink and orange colors make unusually beautiful pictures of animals illuminated by the sun.

The term comes from the Latin sacer meaning restricted or set off. A person may be designated as sacred, and so can an object or a place which is regarded as extraordinary or unique. The term sacer is closely related to numen meaning mysterious power or god. Numinous is used to describe the sacred to indicate its power. In his book, The Sacred and the Profane [see BIBLIOGRAPHY], Mircea Eliade (1907-1986) explains that the sacred always manifests itself as a reality different from normal realities. The presumption is that the divine or some supernatural or spiritual force is manifesting itself to the beholder, who feels privileged thereby. Similarly, it can be suggested that Mount Sinai was already a sacred mountain (cf. Divination

Earth Based Spirituality Earth-based spirituality is a spiritual and religious worldview that puts the Earth in the center of the spiritual practice. Some of these paths view the Earth as divine and may refer to the Earth as their Mother Goddess . In this case the Earth may be the primary or only deity, or She may be part of a larger family of deities. Many Earth-based spiritualities are Pantheist or Panentheist , and some are Atheist in nature. A notable example includes Gaian Spirituality or Gaianism which is based on the Gaia Hypothesis . In this case the Earth or Gaia is like an organism that we are all a part of, but not a God in the traditional sense. Many Earth-based spiritualities incorporate aspects of the Gaia Hypothesis whether or not they believe Gaia to be an actual Goddess or an actual organism. Many members of Earth-based spiritual and religious traditions are proponents of Sacred Activism in environmental areas. Most, but not all Pagan religions can be considered Earth-based.
