Usually when I create a new design for a pendant or figurine, I know who I’m making when I begin. A few days ago, I created a new design who emerged as a mystery. When she was finished, I loved her. But, I didn’t know her name or what she represents. I asked on my facebook page for input and I got some suggestions…
Druid priestess. Seraphine. Tri-Goddess. Mother. Celtic goddess.
I took her to the woods and held her in my hand and spoke:
She who unites body, mind and spirit. She who calls upon earth, sky, and river. She who speaks to oaks and mountains. She who sings with the ocean. She who opens arms to the sky and feels raindrops bless her brow. She who circles in the moonlight. She who gathers with her sisters. She who hears the drumbeat of the earth. She who tunes her heartbeat to this call. She who steps in time with the wind.
Of this earth, for this earth, on this earth.
She holds the vision. She holds the space. She holds an ancient wisdom.
Encoded in her cells, written on her bones…
The mantle settles around her shoulders.
Sinking into belly, bones, and blood,
until she knows,
without a doubt,
that this is who,
she really is.
The next afternoon, a friend who has one of these pendants sent me a message suggesting a title: Embrace Possibility. I thought about what I’d written in the woods.
I thought about how different women saw different names for her and I knew that THIS was it. Embrace Possibility. What message does she hold for *you*?
