MARY, QUEEN OF HEAVEN
I've written about Mary before and my affinity for her, but she is making her presence known a lot these days, so I told her I'd toss her another bone.
And she laughed.
Because Mary is nothing if not funny.
I'm not sure just why I love her so much.
Maybe it's the fact that she raised pretty much the most "special" boy ever.
Maybe it's the fact that to me she represents the divine feminine, the "energy" that I think is sorely missing on our planet today.
Maybe it's because when I talk to her she listens - there is a deep sense of being heard - and understood - that brings me a sense of calm that I don't get anywhere else.
For my birthday in February a friend gave me Mary Seeds. (To order, click here.) Little clay bits with the image of Mary, Queen of Heaven stamped upon them. The idea is to plant them, literally, where you want Mary to grow. I've done me some planting, and I keep a few seeds around for more figurative planting. Got one on my desk, in my purse, in my car, and always in my pocket.
I've given Mary Seeds to friends, she is helping to sell houses that desperately need to sell, she is helping to build schools, she is re-building marriages, she is healing and blessing left and right.
And always, she is love.
May is Mary's month - her presence is particularly felt this month - let's go big with it.
