The New World Sits Gestating within Us

Sometimes something profound happens when I am meditating. This morning, just a few moments ago, I was sitting in front of my altar. I had just lit a candle and burned some sage to offer some prayers to Creator and Earth Mother.


Then I honored my belly by holding it with both hands since I’ve been having some health issues there. The warmth of my hands and their supporting my belly encouraged me to sink my energy more fully into my wombspace. This is my seat of creativity and compassion, I’m learning.


As I was doing this, an image came to mind and I could feel my belly fill with it. My belly became the world, as if I was the Great Mother of this beautiful Earth. A round ball of beautiful waterfalls, and clean water, and vibrant life with birds and animals and so much joy started softly shimmering in my belly and I just held it. I held it as a mother holds her baby in embryo.


It felt so whole and healthy and full of potential for goodness. It replaced the fears and sorrow about my health issues and all the other stuck energies lodged there in my wombspace for who knows how long.


For a brief millisecond, I was Earth Mother gestating a planet of great hope and magnificence and it was so deliciously fun and full of love and life.

Then I remembered this image that a friend shared with me yesterday.

And it was good. Goodness.


Maybe that is what each of us can do. Meditate on birthing this new world that is cracking open in the midst of the crumbling of the old world.  Imagine it in our bellies, especially as women, and help birth it into the present.


What we dream, we can then manifest.


For the Healing of the Earth and ourselves.
