The Magic of Three
Walked through Windhorse Farm this week. Gifted an offering to Mother Maple and was blessed the following word for meditation and prayer:
"Perseverance" - persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
Thank you, Spirit
Windhorse Farm has been recently returned to our Indigenous people; however, the pain is still lurking. Matter of fact, pain is felt within our entire Garden of Eden; therefore, it is important to walk in respect for our Earth Mother and reflect/change in gratitude whenever we can.
After spending quality time in such a magical place, I feel grounded and ready to share what Spirit has presented for reflection; yet a prayer must come first.
I pray the following reflection is expressed in Divine Wisdom sharing only You and Your Wisdom as a result. I pray it is shared in love, and with positive intention.
In the name of Christ,
Ase' | Sha | Amen

Matthew 5: 33-37
33”Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘ do not break your oath, but keep the oaths you have made to the Lord.’ 34But, I tell you, Do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 Simply let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’, and your ‘no’, ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”
Being truly consistent with our word is crucial and evident.
“The Four Agreements”, a Toltec Wisdom Book, by Don Miguel Ruiz, states the number 1 agreement for personal freedom is being "Impeccable with your Word".
We all know it, and we all try and abide. That said, let's dig deeper into the truth of the above noted Bible verses.
Our sacred “Yes” and our Sacred “No” - The way of the Feminine.
Experiencing our very own sacred Yeses and Nos can be stressful; especially with so many commitments in our pocket causing lack of time for our own Divine Wisdom to take place.
Amanda Ring, Shaman and Owner of 7 Feather’s Healing School, mentions a Mudra (position) in her Wise Women Awakening Course that may be used to retrieve this required moment of solitude.
The Yoni is the Ancient Sanskrit word meaning the divine passage, the internal sacred womb space, and the source of life. The Yoni is both the Uterus and the Vagina.
Place hands over womb space in the shape of an upside down triangle (the symbol of "Shakti" the divine energy) and imagine joining a circle of women with their hands in the same place. This will be intense and emotional, as it has been a very long time since we have connected in this way.
Let the emotions out.
Set it free.
These feelings of emotion are your very own “Burning Woman” releasing anguish long-stored within ancestral lineage due to being burned alive for speaking our truth.
Isn't it bittersweet and powerful to know and remember our Feminine Spirit?
Isn’t it beautiful to recognize our Divine feminine connection?
LET'S TALK SHAME
But the lord God called to the man, "Where are you?" 10 He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid." 11 And he said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?"
The above passage explains where Adam and Eve swore an Oath, did not abide, and are feeling etched in shame. Studies have found that the frequency of shame, by not keeping our word, may be located within our following Chakra:
Shame and Spiritual Healing
Sacral Chakra (2) - Svadhisthana. (Energy located between Genital and Naval)
Feelings of other people are perceived at this level in our energy field. Unconscious powers of the mind related to the use of the imagination for creativity builds here.
When blocked - May cause discomfort and avoidance of specific emotions/ feelings, or deeper feelings, rigidity in the physical and mental-emotional bodies, sexual problems, addictive and obsessive tendencies, poor/unhealthy boundaries and abnormalities in kidney, bladder and reproductive organ function. Links to Anxiety and Guilt. (SHAME)

We ask for wisdom to heal ourselves and others.
Please guide us in your Divine ways.
Ase' | Sha | Amen
We are Spiritual beings experiencing mortality, Sunshine.
We are sent here to love and be loved.
Taking strong oaths is too harsh on our hearts.
Think of each oath we have made and not followed up.
Truly think about it.
New Year's Resolutions
Solemnly swearing to text someone back
Countless Oaths made and failed.
Now, let us take three minutes in silence to reflect on how it felt once the oath was not met. First on your end; next on their end.
Breathe in the past
Hold breath for the present
Breathe out the future,
and let it all go, Sunshine.
Christ Consciousness states to stay light by resting within the heart.
Spirit is asking us to reflect on a bit of Feminine Wisdom through an Oracle. Cracking open a brand new deck just for the occasion and am floored with what has been presented.
Thank you, Heavenly Spirit
DAKINI - The Enlightened Feminine
“My gut instinct is wise beyond reason.
I trust my intuition to guide me.”
WHO SHE IS:
Dakini is the embodiment of a feminine wisdom that goes beyond reason or the intellect. Dakini is translated into Tibetan as “sky goer”. She is a tantric priestess and a female manifestation of wisdom. She is elusive, playful, and ultimately defies definition. She represents the enlightened feminine principle of non-duality that transcends gender. She contains a sharp, quick, and uncompromising energy that can feel radical, wild, and free.
As a space dancer and sky goer, the dakini has left the rigid boundaries of earth and the laws of gravity. She is about the limitlessness of the sky, and because of this all possibilities are open to her.
In Tibetan Buddhism, she represents the inner realm as a meditation deity, the outer realm as a Tantric Yogi, and the mundane realm as a woman who teaches spiritual truths in each moment of everyday life. She holds the gold Tantric staff (khatvanga) as a symbol of the ultimate union she has attained–ecstatic bliss and emptiness.
Yeshe Tsogyal is one of the great dakinis in Buddhist history.
She can appear as a messenger, a guide, or as a protector. She is known for being unruly in whatever she does because the ordinary rules of conduct don’t apply to her.
No man rules her, and a taste of freedom is what she wants to give us most of all.
WHEN YOUR SOUL SELECTS THIS CARD:
The dakini means that the task will be accomplished. Whatever it is you’re currently working on–a project, an answer, or a decision–she will help see you through to the other side.
In whatever form you need most, as a playful angelic presence, as a taskmaker, or as a messenger with the wisdom that’s needed for you to take the next step.
But with the dakini, the answer and the way forward is not with the intellect. She is the embodiment of feminine intuition. She reminds you that you have an innate power to know instinctively what’s best for you now.
The dakini means it’s not going to be a straight, clear yes or no. With the Dakini, it’s the third option. She reminds us that there’s something out beyond yes and no or even right and wrong. There’s something your gut will tell you if you can be expansive enough to hear the answer. She is not bound by the usual, or by the expected. She will allow you to come up with the unthinkable, the most imaginative, and the most brilliant outcome possible.
What is my intuition telling me at this moment?
My gut instinct is wise beyond reason.
I trust my intuition to guide me.

FEMININE WISDOM and THE THIRD RESPONSE (The power of three)
The following third response is one passed down from my mother, Shaun Degen, and is a glorious one to keep in your pocket. Write it down and use it with only one request.
Please think of her and reflect in gratitude.
Phrase is as follows:
Thank you, mom, for your own Divine Feminine Wisdom
There we have it, Sunshine.
Another week of reflection.
Thank you for entrusting me to share a bit of Divine Wisdom for You to Your people. I am humbly grateful, as I am a sinner, and will continue to share as You wish as long as You wish it so.
In the name of Christ
Ase' | Sha | Amen
Remember how loved you are, Sunshine
Keep it close in your pocket.
Wishing you all a delightful week; may the Heavenly Spirit guide you today, and always.
