starLites, Great Grandmother wants me to build a 'bag of bones'!
As a part of my meditation and walk with Spirit preparation, I always like to call on my guides to perform a visual smoke cleanse of my Chakras. This typically helps me to process and manage my thoughts and open space for communication.
In addition to my main Guide, Aramos, I am blessed to have five ancestral women who work as a unit, quietly and patiently supporting me with the utmost respect to divine timing. They never interfere, but will reveal themselves every now and then, reminding me that I am not alone. I refer to them as my Hen Mothers, as I feel their fussyness and watchful eye.
On May 20th, I ended up on a very unexpected and energetically wild Spirit walk. Before I could even get to crossing my legs, one of my Hen Mothers immediately appeared to me and very vocally introduced herself to me as Great Grandmother. Her very dramatic appearance was riddled with clucking and directives that I’m still trying to grasp and wrap my head around. To be honest, I’ve never had this kind of interaction with them, and it frightened me a bit as it was intense.
Initially, Her message was daunting in that She very boldly told me it’s time for me to build my ‘bag of bones’. Believe me when I say, I have no idea what that means, and initially I took it literally, like, get out there and start collecting bones… yikes.
And then May 25th happened, and George Floyd was murdered, on camera, with the whole world watching. This moment in time has initiated in me, and the world over, a need for the reclamation of self and the cultural, racial, spiritual and the Divine Feminine healing that needs to happen. I recognize with absolute responsibility, the reference to creating my bag of bones is Her way of telling me it’s time to collect, sort and repair all of the above. As I sit and write this, I hear Her whisper to me that the time has come for me to create a bag filled with healing medicine for the displaced.
It’s time to curate a Bag of Bones with the most intense ancestral medicine I can find, and be a source for those looking to heal and reconnect to Self through Source, Goddess… and Great Grandmother.
Love, Light and stardust

General - Of the air element, this page represents new thoughts and ideas, and good news of an upcoming project. Focused and determined, skilled in the way of masonry and trades, you're a very tactile maker and creator. With so many ideas, you may need some help keeping your feet on the ground. Very talkative, curious, inquisitive and smart, there is always a need to know why, so make sure you’re always asking good, thoughtful questions. Know that you are guided by visuals such as dreams. You’re excellent at networking and meeting the right mentors and contacts to move an idea into a project. Knowing how to act in the company of others will help you work well in refined environments such as fundraising and gala events. You have the best of intentions, not just for yourself, but for your community.
Shadow ~ A delay in information. Communicating from a place of ego, in the sense that you’re sharing your voice simply to be heard. There’s no substance behind it, you’re engaged in gossip, most likely due to feeling inferior, less than, not as educated or skilled as. Not taking the initiative to make your visions, your goals and your dreams a reality. Talking about doing one thing, while doing the exact opposite. You can be easily influenced by narcotics, with a belief that your ideas and senses are being heightened. Like the actual sword, be wary of being two faced. Be mindful of your inquisition, as it can be annoying to some, so make sure that you’re presenting yourself in a manner of wanting to learn, rather than being a perpetual devil’s advocate. Don’t argue for the sake of arguing. If you have something to say, don’t be afraid to say it.
Divine Feminine ~ Blessed are you and your modern ways of thinking with respect to challenging and questioning patriarchal systems. Your intuitive connection allows you to clearly see the need to sort out ‘what’s next’ for the collective. Behind the scenes, you're hard at work drafting solutions, building templates, brainstorming courses and/or creating new ways to work with old belief patterns as they relate to the modern woman. You’re a change maker who’s aligned with the success of our future. Spell work is a natural gift as you are highly attuned in asking, trying, mixing, tinkering and trying again; always with the intention to provide an easier path to sistership. While you’re not one to follow a singular pantheon, your curiosity and insatiable desire to learn and ask, allows you to work with a variety of deities, cultures and people alike. Your ‘why’ whether it be personal or your path to finding answers is the greatest weapon you own. It is directly linked to your purpose and your discovery and understanding of the Divine. You have an internal need to help those less fortunate, especially young women who are being oppressed with limited access to the basics of human rights. Listen to what society is asking for, know why they are asking for it, and problem solve around it.
You’ve just newly started to either connect with the Divine Feminine, or you’re exploring a new aspect of Her. It’s okay to not be perfect, you’re just starting the exploration. Give yourself some time to work through all the aspects that you’re being called too. Be open to this new way of thinking, and communicate while you’re learning. Keep your sword sharp, as you’re going to need the flexibility to make clear decisions.
