I’m happy to share a snippet from an inspirational / metaphysical novel today, called “The Unknown Mother”. Have fun reading the snippet!
Matrina made a V with her fingers, like a peace sign and placed them at her throat. As she did so, I noticed a light emanating from her hyoid bone, the area at the base of her throat where there really is a little V. It startled me. I wondered if she knew she was glowing. A look came over her, full of ferocity yet filled with love.
“For a very long time, the Voice has been patiently waiting for you to bring it into full consciousness. This is a call to awaken the lion that sleeps. You’ve been wielding your words like feathers for so long, when all along they were more like swords, piercing your mind with their poisoned tips, striking out at yourself and those you love and those who are different from you. For so long, you’ve accepted your universe and all of the concepts in it without question, unknowingly using words to fortify your dark and lonely castle when you could have used them to create a beautiful, inviting garden. For so long now, something else has held the power of the word and used it against you and the people you love. No more.
“In accepting this invitation, you are not promising anything to me or anyone else. You are making a promise to yourself with full consciousness. You are making a promise to become aware of the units we call words and to reclaim the power in every symbol you speak. You are promising to end gossip in every dimension, speaking only of what you truly know and only of those present to hear. You are promising especially to clean up the gossip you spread about yourself, whether in your own mind or out loud. No more disempowering yourself or anyone else ever again. You are promising to use your words to inspire and create joy, peace, and abundance with no conditions.
“I don’t know what will happen when you say ‘Yes.’ It’s your path and yours alone. I do know, however, that it will be a wonderful and mysterious journey along which you will encounter many challenges and receive many rewards. It can be the single most powerful and loving act of self love you could ever grant yourself.”
I felt tears come to my eyes.
“The meaning of life is the meaning you give it,” she continued. “That sounds so simple to understand, but this is one truth that resounds in every reflection of your life. You are the creator. If you can surrender your need to understand this or to deny it, you can begin to understand the importance of reclaiming your Voice.”
I felt something happening for sure. My heart was racing. It felt like every cell in my entire body was bouncing with wild anticipation to be reunited with this truth, this remembering.
