About Kelly Brogan

I am reading a book about Goddesses, hoping to shed more light on the mystical power of the divine feminine – that inborn force that we must learn to wield, to hold gently but firmly so that we can be guided from a space of intuition and strength rather than fear and controlling.

I sent a picture to my friend James who spoke of the rise of the Goddess at the last Functional Forum. He replied with this video:

I watched it four times in a row, tears streaming down my face, and then found my daughter to share it with her (she’s used to my feminist antics). To me, this is a sign of a new consciousness emerging. It is the Aquarian Age and one of correction. It is a time of rebirthing and the divine feminine in all of us will be called to midwife the transition. This transition may look like suffering, and it has to me. It may be like the tightening of a violin string, necessary to release the perfect note.

Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez wrote these words to me about this moment in our shared history:

We are in the Suntaleia, the Greek term for Consummation of the Ages, a time of confusion, political strife, hatred of truth, governmental oppression and the rise toward one world dictatorship.  Then comes the destruction of truth’s enemies, the restoration of the earth and recognition for those that gallantly stood firm for the truth and its always righteous application. So do not despair, it isn’t necessary to so, the plan is falling into place, these times are but the birth pangs of the glorious world that will follow. And you will be a part of it.

We are all a part of it if we choose to Rise Up and work to raise our vibration together. Listen for the voice inside. Feel its tenor. Know your truth. Then and only then will you radiate exactly what you want to receive.

Where are you?
Little girl with broken wings but full of hope….
Where are you?
Wise women covered in wounds……
Where are you?
Today is the day
I will not sit still and give in anymore
Today I rise
I am bruised but I will get up and walk again>
Today I rise
I don’t care if you ignore my beauty
Today I rise
Through the alchemy of my darkest nights I heal and thrive
Today I rise
I move through the world with confidence and grace
I open my eyes and I am ready to face
My wholeness as a woman and my limitless capacities
I will walk my path with audacity
Today I rise
I reconnect with the many aspects of myself
I am in awe of the reality I can create
I am a healer
I am a queen
A wise women – A wild woman
I will rise and beam
I am a rebel
I will wake up and fight
I am a mother and I am a child
I will no longer disguise my sadness and pain
I will no longer suffer and complain
I am black and I am white
There is no reason to hide
Where are you….
I call upon Kali
To kiss me alive
I transform my anger into power
No more heartache or strive
The world is missing what I am ready to give
My wisdom, My sweetness, My love
And my hunger for peace
I weep with the trees and the rivers and the earth in distress
I rise and shine and I am ready to go on my quest
Today I rise
Without doubt or hesitation
Today I rise
Without excuses –Without procrastination
Today I call upon my sisters to join
A movement of resoluteness and ….concern
Today is the day I rise and scream
Today I foresee the future of my dreams!
Today is my call to action………… I will fulfill my mission
Without further distraction.
Today is the day!
Today I will start
To offer the world
The Wisdom of my heart.

Thank you, Wise at Heart.
