Psalm 98 – Our Lady reigns, let the people rejoice

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven

PSALM 98: Our Lady Reigns

Our Lady Reigns, let the people rejoice: She sits on the High Throne of Heaven. Great in Ekklesia is Thy glory, O Lady: and in Cosmos,
shines forth Thy magnificence. Sing before Her, ye harmonious choirs: and adore Her throne, for it is holy. In Her Flames the Fire of Love
and round about Her are those who worship Her. Her Seven Laws are before our eyes: and the rule of compassion is in Her heart.

Psalter of Our Lady
These 150 psalms are taken from the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary written by St. Bonaventure and have been painstakingly adapted by
Mr Glenn King and Madria Pamela Lanides. These psalms are taken from the Living Stream in the West.

For the most part, we have removed archaic language however, Thee and Thou, when referring to Our Lady, denotes honor and the respect
that is due to Her.

Our thanks to Mr. King for this valuable service to the Filianic/Deanic community.

Isis Mistress of Heaven

In the beginning there was Isis: Oldest of the Old, She was the Goddess from whom all Becoming Arose. She was the Great Lady, Mistress of the two Lands of Egypt, Mistress of Shelter, Mistress of Heaven, Mistress of the House of Life, Mistress of the word of God. She was the Unique. In all Her great and wonderful works She was a wiser magician and more excellent than any other God.

These 2 parts may be sections of the same prayer of praise or just mixed together by an editor.


Mama Mary – Queen of Heaven and Earth by jmamante02

Unto Her who renders decisions, Goddess of all things,
Unto the Lady of Heaven and Earth who receives supplication;
Unto Her who hears petition, who entertains prayer;
Unto the compassionate Goddess who loves righteousness;
Ishtar the Queen, who suppresses all that is confused.

To the Queen of Heaven, the Goddess of the Universe,
the One who walked in terrible Chaos and brought life by the Law of Love;
And out of Chaos brought us harmony, and from Chaos
Thou has led us by the hand.

– Babylon, Eighteenth to Seventh Century BCE


Prayer to Ishtar

Queen of Heaven, Goddess of the Universe,
You are the holy one of women and men.
The one who walked in terrible chaos,
And brought life by the law of love,
And out of chaos brought us harmony,
And from chaos She has led us by the hand.

Woman of women, Goddess knows no equal,
She who decrees the destiny of people,
Highest Ruler of the Worlds,
Sovereign of the Heavens,
Goddess, even of those who live in heaven.
With Ishtar, there is counsel and wisdom.

The fate of everything She holds in Her hand.
Joy comes from Her every glance.
She is the power, the magnificence.
She is the Spirit that guides.
Be it maiden or mother,
Women remember Her,
And call Her name, O Shining One.

You stop the anger of all other deities.
You care for the oppressed and the mistreated,
Each day offering them your help.
You are the one who gleams the brightest,
In the midst of all other deities.

written 1600 B.C.
From a graphic Prayer to Ishtar

Ishtar, can be replaced by Jana, Anna, Inanna, Rhianne, whichever name for immanent Dea you find most meaningful.




Black Madonna Mother of God of Ostra Brama, Mother of Mercy Lithuania, Vilna

Our Lady is exalted among the daughters of Heaven.

Shining Inanna, Star of the Sea,

Robed in celestial light.

She abases the cruel and proud,

And hearkens to the plea of the lowly.

The rich who deny her godhead find not contentment,

But blessed is the humblest of Her servants.

She delivers the captive into Her care,

And takes the hand of the fallen.

May the whole world praise Thee, beloved Inanna,

May Thy glory be told of in all the earth.

Let them exalt Thy dominion

And Thy valiant courage

And glorify Thy holy Name.

Have mercy on Thy servant who gives Thee blessing

And take Thy servant’s hand in need and suffering.

In illness and distress give Thy servant the gift of life

May Thy servant go forever in joy and delight

To magnify Thy holy Name

Before all the peoples of the world.

The earliest surviving version of this prayer is about 4,000 years old


I make this gender neutral by replacing her with their, them, they and she with Thy servant.

I have a small booklet Mythos of the Divine Maid, it is at the back of that and also in The Sacred Myths and Rites of the Madrians by Philip Jackson on page 47 and 48. My version is on a smaller page and has hand drawn flowering borders but the wording is exactly the same. I did not find the ancient version (4,000 years old) on the internet, as it came from a book or manuscript in the 1970s.

Inanna, can be replaced by Jana, Anna, Rhianne, whichever name for immanent Dea you find most meaningful.

Feast of Coronation / Exaltation of Di Jana as Queen of Heaven – Regina Coeli

Feast of Coronation / Exaltation of Di Jana as Queen of Heaven – Regina Coeli

My predecessors in the Deanic Faith, celebrated this on 14th Maia / 1st May alongside Maia’s Day. This is far too confusing. I celebrate it on the crescent moon. Clan Jana celebrate on the last Sunday of Maia – 28th, this year 14th May.

This is the first time that I have performed (and adapted) the The Moonrite of Gifts of Clan Jana, even though I did not have all the correct equipment, may Dea forgive me. 23rd Maia / 10th May: (4 days after the Dark Moon): Crescent Moon. (For the Holy Daughter).

We celebrate Di Jana as Queen of Heaven, received by the children of Heaven and crowned by the high Janati. We are reminded that through Di Jana, meaning gateway, we shall return to Madria Dea (Mother God). If you have a statue, do crown Her with flowers. All present should ideally wear white. It is a joyous day and there is a legend that those with joyful hearts can laugh roses for the Queen of Heaven.

25 Verses
Title 1, Chapter 10
Chapter 10

9. When the time was at hand, two high Janati [replacing archangels] descended, one on either side of Her, and She went with them into heaven. 10. The children of heaven greeted Her, crying: “Hail, princess of the world; hail, queen of heaven.” And they placed a crown of stars about Her head.
11. The blue night was Her cloak, and the stars of the sky the crown about Her head, and the moon lay at Her feet. They cried again: “Hail, queen of heaven.” 12. Thus began Her dear and glorious reign; and for the children of heaven, Her very presence was the completion of their joy. 13. And She poured forth Her grace and blessing from Her hands upon them and upon the earth. And Her grace and blessing were as rays of perfect light which penetrate the heart and flood the soul.
14. She said to them: “Do not forget your sisters of the earth, but move yourselves among them and hear their voices; lend them succour and breathe with them in their upward aspiration. 15. And when a soul in true devotion passes from the earth, lead her to the portal of heaven and the garden of Abalon [replacing Avala], and give her rest, and provision her with treasures of the Spirit to help her on her way.”
16. And She entered the great temple of heaven, where the spirits of earth’s children were gathered at the sacrifice, even as their souls were gathered on the earth. 17. Then She stood at the great altar and took up a wheaten loaf, and spoke, saying: 18. “Like to the grains, My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] was cut down by the scythe of separation and suffering [replacing death]; and like to the grains did it rise anew. 19. For I am the ear of grains that is reaped in silence.” 20. She said: “Like to the grains my soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] was broken between the stones of separation and suffering [replacing death].” And saying thus, She broke the bread between Her hands.
21. And She gave the fragments of the bread to the spirits of earth’s children, saying: “Here is My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] that is broken for you. Eat My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body], that you may be one with My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body], and may be one soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] in Me.”
22. Then She poured out Her Spirit from hands into a great chalice, and Her Spirit lay as wine within the chalice. 23. She said: “Even as you have offered Me bread in sacrifice, so I give you the bread of My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body]; and as you have poured out libations of wine to Me, so I pour out the eternal libation of My eternal Spirit.” 24. And as it is performed above in the Spirit, so is it
reflected below in the soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] and the spirit, and through the reflection do earth’s children have
part in the real. 25. So were the things that are told in this book reflected in the hearts of the children of Dea [replacing maids], that all might read them and draw closer to She that acted them.

1:9:16: “Archangels,” or “Geniae” in other versions.



O, Dea, Supernal Sun,
O, Dea, Supernal Moon,
O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom,
O, Dea Dea, Star of Hope,
O, Dea, Fora of Faith,
O, Dea, Dove of Peace,
O, Dea, Rose of Joy,
A: We thank You, we bless You and we adore You; for through Your Compassionate Love, we are infused with Your Luminous Graces and are sheltered beneath Your Great Mantle of Protection. Blessed is She.


A: The Creed of Clan Jana

I believe in the Eternal One, Dea Madria; I believe that She is One and that She is also Three.

I believe in the Celestial Mother; She Who is Pure Light and Essence; the Matrix of the Earth and of the Heavens and of all the infinite cosmos.

I believe in Her Holy Daughter; She Who is Perfect Love and Form; the Ruler of all the energies of creation; She Who is the Holy Soul of the World.

And I believe that there is She Who stands beyond these Two, Whose Name has not been spoken upon this Earth; She Who is Pure Life and Source, for She is the Beginning and the End, the First Principle and the Final Cause, the unoriginated Origin of Being, the Great Mother of all that is and all that is not; She Who Is.

I believe in the Seven Janati, the Seven Great Powers of Dea. I believe that they are the Seven Living Streams of Virtue who flow from the Mother and that guided by these Living Streams, I will rise to Perfection and eternally abide in the Supernal Realm of Her Love.

Blessed is She.


Preparation of the Gifts.
A: Silver Star of the Waters, Who has laughed all the world into being, beyond all knowing is the splendour of Your Light. Enfold my spirit in Your Mighty hand so that the Pure Stream of Your Light may flow through me, in this world and in all the worlds to come. Blessed is She.

H: Holds the plate of bread and then the chalice of wine in the smoke of incense with both hands and says: O, Madria Dea, may these gifts be sanctified in Your Name. In the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and of the Great Mother . Blessed is She.

All bow.

H: Let us offer libation to the (Celestial Mother), (the Holy Daughter), (The Great Mother, She Who Is). H then pours a portion of the wine from the chalice into the libation bowl.

She then traces the Fora again over the bread.

H: O, (Celestial Mother), ( O, Holy Daughter), (O, Great Mother, Mysteria), as we drink Your Wine and eat of Your Bread, may Your Divine Spirit be infused within our being.
A: bow.

(Everyone present is offered the chalice (or the wine may be poured into very small glasses and distributed) and the sacred bread. Any remaining wine in the chalice is either consumed by the H or is poured out onto the ground at the end of the Rite. The libation bowl is to be reserved until the Rite is complete.

May the blessing of the Mother be upon you.
May the blessing of the Daughter be upon you.
May the blessing of the Great Mother be upon you.
Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the Darkness.


Silver Light of the darkling forests, send us forth in the protection of Your Spirit that no profane thing may enter into us.

Grant us to see all things with delight that are lovely and to glory and increase in force and energy.

Fill us with wonder in the sight of the seas and of the heavens and of every place wherein You are.

Commander of the roaring wave, help us to turn from all that is low or inglorious neither with anger nor with pain, but to know that in You we stand above all such things.

Guiding Light of the faithful soul, fill the deepest caverns of our spirit with the exhilaration of Your love. Send us forth upon the world as torchbearers of Your delight and grant us strength in You and in ourselves that we may value all things rightly, regardless of the consuming weight of the profane and the frailty of all that is beautiful.

H: Let us bless the Queen of Heaven.
A: Blessed is She.
H: Let us thank the Seven Janati of Power.
A: Thanks be to the Seven Janati.

A: Trace the Fora over themselves and say:
In the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and of the Great Mother.

Blessed is She.

H: Thus it is and thus may it remain.
H: This Rite is Ended.
A: Blessed is She.

The libation wine is poured out onto the Earth by the H who says, while pouring, Hail, Holy Mother, Hail, Holy Daughter, Hail, Great Mother.
Blessed is She.

Di Jana as Princess of the World

Di Jana as Princess of the World

Spiritual Guide and Tutor in how to live a Spiritual Life on the manifest planes (all worlds).

Di Jana Princess of the World

Di Jana as Soul of the World, descended (Her Holiness suffered in ways beyond our knowing) and gathered souls from every plane of manifestation, even from the lowest depths of Hell. She remained upon the manifest planes, and taught and governed in such a manner that all children of Dea may live in the manifest planes by the Spirit’s Divine Light and we may follow Her Holiness and tread the pathways to Heaven.

Vladimir Suvorov

Artist: Vladimir Suvorov

If our soul requires further training / advancement to achieve Perfect Love and Union then we rest for a short time in Di Jana’s Paradise, a Heavenly World of Her Love, the Western Isle, or Abalon: Old Celtic form of Avalon which means land of apples.

Glossary of Clan Jana
In ancient Rome, Diva Jana or Di-Jana also means Divine Gate. For Clan Jana, the Holy Daughter is the Divine Gate of Gentle Light through Whom we find our way back to Union in Perfection. In this way, She is considered Soteria, Saviouress.

But I shall unite you all who love Me in one great soul; [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] 7. the highest and the lowest, the living and the dead, those who falter at the door, and those who have climbed to the highest tower, all shall be one in My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] which I have given to the world, and all shall be nourished by My Spirit.”

PSALM 118F – How Have I Loved Your Law

How have I loved your law, O Lady? It is forever in my sight.
The abundance of your love has drawn my heart out of me:
And my flesh has wonderfully rejoiced in thee.
How sweet are your words, O Lady,
above all song they are precious to my ears.
Your words are light to my steps: and illumination to my paths.
How often have my sins conquered me?
But because I will not stray from your love I will be redeemed.
In you, O Lady have I hoped.

Beautiful Song For Spring by Celtic Woman

Beautiful Song For Spring by Celtic Woman

Posted on May 4, 2016
Maia 17 3336

Dear friends,

I was listening to Celtic Woman earlier and found this song of theirs I had not previously heard before, and it made me think of the Eastre cycle, spring time, the Daughter as Princess of the World, Exaltation Day, Lady Graca and Maia, so it’s perfect for all things Spring!

Their music is so beautiful and I think this is my new favourite song of theirs. I just wish I’d heard it at the start of the Eastre cycle instead of now when it’s over!

You can listen to it here,
and I will paste the lyrics below.

The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun

High is the moon tonight
Hiding it’s guiding light, high
Heaven and earth do sleep, still in the dark so deep
I will the darkness sweep

I will the moon to flight, I will the heaven’s bright
I will the earth to light
Open your eyes with me, see paradise with me
Awake and arise with me

I am the dawn, I’m the new day begun
I bring you the morning, I bring you the sun
I hold back the night and I open the skies
I give light to the world, I give sight to your eyes
From the first of all time, until time is undone
Forever and ever and ever and ever
And I am the dawn and the sky and the sun
I am one with the one and I am the dawn

I am the sky and the dawn and the sun
I am the sky and the new day begun
I am the sky and the dawn and the sun

My Mother, My Queen,
I give myself entirely to Thee,
and show my devotion to Thee,
I consecrate to You this day
my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart,
my whole body without reserve.
Wherefore good Mother,
as I am Thine own,
Keep me and guard me
as your ward and child.

My Mother, My Queen,
I adorn myself with the Jewels of Your love;
I drink of Your cup filled with
The Wine of Life;
I bathe in the Primordial Eternal Waters of
Your womb;
My Queen, My Mother,
Upon Your Crown of Mercy and Goodness do I gaze,
Knocking at Your Secret Door.
High Lady,
May your blessed Light guide me,
Oh White Moon!

Thealogy of Lady Maia and the Festival of Maia’s Day 15th Maia / 1st May

Thealogy of Lady Maia and the Festival of Maia’s Day 15th Maia / 1st May

In traditional societies, all forms of manifestation/Creation exist as Sacred essences or spirit at one with Madria Dea/Dea Matrea, Mari who is Divine Essence/Spirit. They exist before being manifested as material forms and will exist for eternity after extinction on whichever manifest plane they were materialised on.

We celebrate our Celestial Mother Mari’s loving gift of the Sacred season of Spring; with the increasing light and warmth of the physical sun and the bountiful life and growth of all of lovely Nature.

Miniature Maypole, Symbols Of Love, Flower Moon 

Lady Maia with miniature Maypole, Rose, & Flower Moon

Lady Maia (my-ah) is the first person of the Moirai, pronounced my-rye, the Fates of Greek mythology who control the Threads of Fate within manifest realms. Lady Maia is a Janya/a perfect expression of our Creator Mother, spinning our Soul Path, with the positive aspect of “worldly enjoyment” remembering all of manifestation as a Spiritual lesson for
our souls return to Dea. She also has the negative aspect of ignorance, in Sanskrit known as Maya which refers to world illusion, becoming attached to the material and forgetting the Spirit Source of All, Madria Dea.

Flower maiden in front of shrine

Maiden offering flowers in front of shrine

Historically, being a fire festival Beltane “sacred wood fire, means spiritually connecting myself with Holy Spirit, Madria Dea the supernal Sun. Candles of spring colours, blue, pink and green will adorn my altar along with flowers and ribbons.

Nether Wasdale Mayday by Dr R Coldrey

Nether Wasdale Mayday by Dr R Coldrey

The Maypole is the world/cosmic axis/tree, branches symbolising Heaven, the trunk the middle world and the roots the lower/nether region. All the coloured ribbons represent the various qualities of material existence flowing down from Celestial Mother Mari. Once it was the women who danced as representatives of Dea, now it is the children. This is the Sacred dance of Celestial Harmony and Order brought by Holy Jana as Princess of the World [also Janya Lady Thema (Thay-ma)] and also the dance represents the soul in a material world experiencing entanglements of moirai/fate/karma.

So find any excuse to dance and laugh, knowing that you are one with Dea, the Source and Centre of all.

The crowning of a girl dressed in white as Queen of the May represents Holy Jana as Princess of the World.

Janya: meaning life or generator of life.
Janati: (plural) Sanskrit for generate, cause, to be born, create, beget and to produce.

Traditional Drink

Syllabub Recipe
Syllabub is one of the treats sometimes shared among the Mayers. At one time they were offered “a syllabub of warm milk direct from the cow, sweet cakes and wine” for example in Northumberland, according to the Golden Bough, Vol. 2, page 67. Here is a recipe for it given from A Choice Collection of Cookery Receipts. Syllabub is very different but very good, and it is appropriate to the season.

1 pint of white wine
1 lemon, pared, steep in the wine for two hours
juice of one lemon, add to wine
sugar to taste
1 quart of cream, warm
Put all in a bowl and whisk until thick.


Here is a simpler recipe for Syllabub, in case you don’t happen to have a cow handy.
½ cup cream
1 level tablespoon of sugar.
Warm the cream (30 seconds in microwave) and whisk to bubbles. Add:
½ cup white wine
Pour into a glass and drink. There were supposed to be lemon parings and lemon juice but these aren’t needed because the wine will serve as an acid to thicken the cream. This is a recipe for one, make as many as you like.

25 Verses
Title 1, Chapter 10
Chapter 10
1. And as She walked, the children of the earth threw blossoms before Her, and though Her feet rested on them, they were not bruised. 2. And She reigned over all the earth, bringing all nature back to life, and all life back to the true law and rhythm of nature, and the whole world knew Her as its princess. 3. The children of the earth were filled with love for Her, and gathered about Her with tears of joy, touching Her robes and giving themselves to Her in their hearts.
4. And She gathered them together and taught them many things, saying:

“You have gained knowledge of the world, but I say, be not wise with the wisdom of the world, nor proud with the pride of the world, nor troubled with the dignity of the world, neither lose yourself in any of the ways and fashions of the world, but come to Me as little children in the pure simplicity of your hearts and the virgin innocence of your souls; for truly, all of you are children in the eyes of your Mother, and I shall receive all who come as Her children. Come to Me and all faults shall be forgiven.”

Scripture relating to the Divine origin of souls and the world being an illusion

26 verses
Title 3, Chapter 4

1. My children, whose souls are My family, I shall speak to you of the things that I have seen. Let no one say that the world is good, nor that the world is evil. 2. For I have stood at the highest point of the world and at the lowest; and from both of these can the world be seen, and from no other. 3. The cosmos is a perfect sphere, even lovelier than the sun, and yet it is all riven through with kear. 4. All that is was fashioned by My Mother out of the laughter of Her heart and the skill of Her hands, and all that is very good, more than any soul can know.
5. But kear is not. Kear is naught. Kear is the black abyss that has turned its face from
My Mother and has frowned upon the laughter of Her heart. 6. This abyss of kear lies between the world and My Mother, and every soul and She. For every soul is an image of the world.

[I reject verse 7, as I do not believe in a sacrificial death of the World Soul, Heavenly Mother on Earth; Di Jana].

8. and My soul has cried out in her distress; cried out into the echoless void. Truly, there is no suffering like to this suffering, nor any pain of body or of mind. 9. And you, My children, each of you that gathers around Me, each of you in your robe of purest white, each one has this kear within her, and there is not one without it anywhere.

[I reject verse 10, as the “fallen” sinful, guilt laden doctrine of christianity. In the Clan Jana Divine Drama we wished to experience all that was not Dea through childlike curiousity, having given us free will, Mother Mari manifested planes of existence outside of Her Good Realm/Heaven/All One Spirit so that with a Divine Mother’s
loving protection we could explore and reject with all our being all that is not of Her].

11. And your souls, your laughing souls, all robed in purest white, that are lovelier than the sun because they are the image of My Mother, are riven through with kear. 12. And your dearest joy must ring as a silver bell that has a crack; sweetly, but never in perfection. 13. Oh, do not say that you are perfect, for then you can not understand either the world or your own selves. 14. Do not say that you are innocent, for that would be to mock My suffering. 15. For I love each of you, and I have proved My love, and shall prove it evermore. 16. For I have conquered death and kear, and I bring to you My conquest. 17. Open your heart to Me, and I shall bring you all the fruit that have reaped in
18. Seek not to conquer kear alone nor cleave alone to good, but open your heart to Me,
and let Me live through you, for I shall open the way to your true soul, your laughing soul, all robed in white even lovelier than the sun [I reject the end of the sentance see rejection of verse 7].

19. Turn from the evil of the world and come to Me, and I shall lead you to your heart’s true home.
20. Come to Me, My children, in the innocence of your hearts, and look upon the beauty of the world; for everything reflects the glory of Thea. 21. Do not see the world through the eyes of the world, but through the eyes of the Eternal. 22. Know also that the world is not so solid as it seems, but in truth it is an illusion. 23. Change that within you and the world without will change. But seek to change the world, and all of essence will remain the same.
24. And this is the secret of the world which the world would hide from you: that all things lie within the souls of maids, and only the Thea is without.

25. For in order to gain the world, you must give the world away; and in order to attain your desire, you must pass beyond all desire; and in order to find yourself, you must lose yourself; and in order to have eternal life, you must go unto death [I reject the end of the sentance see rejection of verse 7]. 26. And this is the secret of the world which all the world will hide from you.

“Kear” is a chasm or gap that separates a child of Thea from Thea, a crack that breaks what is whole into divided pieces. It is pronounced as though it rhymes with fear and dear.

3.4. The Secret of the World. “And this is the secret of the world which the world would
hide from you: that all things lie within the souls of children of Thea, and only the Thea is
without.” (3:4:24.)

The world is never perfect, and even the most beautiful is riven with kear.
