The unutterable Name of God expresses a duality in the Godhead, consisting of a male and a female aspect. The second female aspect of God is known as Shekinah and can be equated with the concept of the Holy Spirit. This is the Divine Presence that offers true illumination. The inflow of the force of the Holy Spirit will then serve to take a sincere seeker forward and upward towards his or her next personal level of conscious achievement, whatever that may be at any time. It is this supra-natural energy that has been a constant comforting, guiding, protecting and healing companion all my life.
We are currently living in a cycle when humanity will have a long needed opportunity to attain awareness of God as Mother and experience the power of the Holy Spirit. The Mother is the ‘nurturing force’ referred to as the feminine polarity of the Godhead. She is the “other side” of the Father. In physical form, she is known by many names depending on your belief system. Being multi-faceted, the Divine Mother has a thousand and one faces and names and her reflection is constantly changing. The concept of Divine Mother transcends all religions.
The safest way to experience the purifying action of the Mother in form is through prayer and devotion. Her creative and healing energy is our great teacher and comforter. The blessings we receive from the Mother are endless. One of Her primary attributes is to awaken seekers.
The Divine Mother or Shekinah experience is not to be equated directly with the djed pillar phenomenon of Egyptian origin or with the Kundalini experience of the Indian mystical system. Shekinah, Divine Mother-Holy Spirit unfoldment concerns radiant energy entering the biophysical system from a higher level of beingness. It comes to us from Above in contrast to the other two mentioned which relate to energy already present, but lying dormant within the existing physical and/or psychical framework of the individual.
The energy, pillar of light or fire descending from Divine Mother represents the downward flow of the “Gifts of the Spirit”. As the Mother energy becomes active within us, our consciousness begins to undergo a profound change. Divine Mother brings harmony within and order without. We are liberated and restored to wholeness through the Cosmic Mother and Her human representatives.
I reverently work with Cosmic Mother and the Holy Spirit together. From personal experience, I see no difference. They are my closest companions. The Holy Spirit is very mystical. The action of the Holy Spirit manifests in a variety of ways. From years of witnessing the power and presence of the Divine Feminine, I know Her compassion is responsible for healing on every level. The Holy Spirit is known as the Holy Ghost, Holy Comforter or Heavenly Comforter. The Cosmic Mother helps us to pass our initiations and teaches us not only to cultivate the gifts of the Creative Spirit but also how to be a just steward of these gifts.
May the Mother of All enter humanities heart~
