Prayers to The Great Mother

The Great Mother / Absolute Deity / Dea Matrona / Mysteria / Deam Mysterium

Ground of All Being, Ultimate Source, the Supreme Being, Gnostic Monas, the Great Provider, the abundance of the Cosmos.
She is the original Fountain, the Great Cosmic River, from which all else flows.
She is not so wholly transcendent that She is not also with me as I am in Her. We may describe what She is not and we may also describe what She is, as far as our finite minds are capable.

Janite Psalms for private use only

Psalm 9: O, Veiled Fora of Faith

O, Veiled Fora of Faith,
You are the Still Centre of All Being.
You are the Luminosity of Darkness.
You are the Wellspring of the Rivers of Life.
You are the Tabernacle of Divinity.
O, Veiled Fora of Faith, be with us.

Psalm 14: O, Great Mother.

O, Great Mother,
Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the Darkness,
powerful are Your ways and great is Your Mystery.
Through the shimmering veil, we glimpse you not.
In the Still Point of the Centre, do You reside.
The Grace of All Life pours forth from the Fountainhead of Your very Being.
Source of the Four Great Rivers, You are beyond all knowing.
The Celestial Mother and the Holy Daughter find Their Completion in You.
O, Great Mother,
Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the Darkness, may all Blessings Be.

We praise You.
Thus may it remain.

Finger, Handbag, Trouser Pocket Rosary for Autumn Holy Trinity – Apples of Wisdom, Divine Life, Light & Love

Finger, Handbag, Trouser Pocket Rosary for Autumn Holy Trinity – Apples of Wisdom, Divine Life, Light & Love

Size:

Pendant 4 inches
Gemstone loop 6 inches

~~~

Construction and price:

Colours & Symbol:
The Great Mother: 5 petals of a darker purple dianthus
The Celestial Mother: 5 petals of lighter pink apple blossom
The World Soul Daughter: 5 pentacle star seed of the
Apple of Wisdom, green with leaf

inspired by ArchMadria Pamela’s post

All LIFE rests in potentiality, within Source or Absolute Deity, the Great Mother, Dea Matrona.
She Who is the ‘Bright Shimmering Darkness’ and the ‘Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the Darkness’ The Ground of all being. Dea is the first, and highest and only necessary “thing” [Intelligence/Spirit] that exists.
Dea Matrona emanated / “breathed out” the Matrix & Creatrix, Dea Matrea, Celestial Mother Mari.

~~~

The seed, containing the blueprint and essence of the life of the Apple Tree, is symbolic of the Matrix & Creatrix, Dea Matrea, Celestial Mother Mari, Who, Herself, contains the Supernal Blueprint and ESSENCE of the Tree of Life.
She gathers from Source or Absolute Deity, the Great Mother, the seeds containing the Essence of Life and She births [emanates] them into material manifestation. Therefore, the Holy Mother Mari is, for us: Dea, Apple of Wisdom.

~~~

The outer apple represents the material manifestation of Creation. The inner spiritual seeds containing the Essence of Life, taken together with the outer apple of material manifestation represent the two Threads of the Spiritual and the Material being woven together to create All Being, FORM, which is exactly what Divine Soul Di Jana, Apple of Wisdom, signifies.

Collage of my Pendant idea

1. Holy Trinity Pendant

in English White Oak wood (Janya Lady Justina / Thema pronounced Thay-ma correspondences)
with artwork collage, I am commissioning pendants from Madria Erin’s source:
https://www.facebook.com/moonscraft/

£15

2. Apple beads x3 in Mashan Jade (Dyed Apple Green Marble)

10mm x3 (41 beads) £3.73 1/2 pence  https://www.beadshopuk.com 0.09 pence each x 3 = 0.27  pence

The healing properties of Marble is used as a cleanser which is beneficial for the blood, skin and systems that help cleanse the body such as the lymphatic, digestive system and integumentary system. Metaphysically this stone is beneficial for clarity during tantric activities and meditative states. It aids strength of self control and mastery of thought. It improves total recall of dreams and provides protection, stability and structure of one’s physical, emotional and spiritual facets.

3. three seed beads in clear rock crystal quartz

8mm (6 beads) 0.99 pence http://www.charming-beads.co.uk 0.1 1/2 pence each = 0.99 pence

Its name derives from the Ancient Greek “krustallos” meaning ice because they believed that quartz was ice that never melted because it was formed by the gods.

Properties – Believed to be the most powerful healing and energy amplifier. It absorbs, stores and releases energy and is excellent for unblocking.

4. “septade” 4x (Earth) beads in Dark Blue Dyed Jade

10mm (38 beads) £4.48 1/2 pence  http://www.beadshopuk.com 0.12 pence each x 4 = 0.47 pence

5. “septade” 3x (Heaven) beads in Purple Dyed Jade

8mm (10 beads) £2.96 https://www.beadshopuk.com 0.29 1/2 pence each x 3 = 0.88 1/2 pence

Jade is known as the “heart” stone as it enhances all aspects of love, is also known as the stone that brings abundance and is also known as stone for bringing emotional balance and stability. Jade is also known to give self reliance and confidence. is known also for its protective qualities especially with children with illnesses. Jade comes in many shades of green. Jade is more known in ancient times for its toughness. Jade may also come in shades of grey, white, black, yellow or orange or even violet tones.

Type C Jade: This refers to jade that has been color enhanced (to be blunt, dyed). Jade is a porous stone so it is easy and inexpensive to dye. A variety of methods can be used – from sophisticated polymers to as simple as boiling the jade in dyed water. Most bright green jade and purple jade is the result of dye, but clever sneaky jade dealers are also dying the color so that it is subtle and mottled – just slightly better than it was – so that it looks more natural.

Jade Imitations
These are materials that look like jade (sometimes extremely convincingly!) but are not at all jade – not even remotely related to it.
Dyed polycrystalline quartz (aka dyed chalcedony): This is very convincing because it has the same granular-looking translucence as jade (even with a microscope!). You can tell the
difference sometimes because the quartz will take on a higher polish than the jade (vitreous luster vs. waxy luster)

13) and still beneath the branches and the bole (trunk) lie the roots in darkness, like unto She that is beyond both being and unbeing. 14) and even as the tree’s roots are not seen, so can there be no knowledge of the Absolute; for to know is to have passed beyond knowledge. (Title 3, Chapter 5 THE SERMON OF THE APPLE SEED).

As the canopy of the tree represents the Love of the Daughter and the trunk represents the Light of the Mother, so do the roots represent the Life of the Great Mother Who is Absolute Deity or the Monas (One). The Great Mother is the Ground of All Being, the Divine Source of the All. Our Celestial Mother and the Holy Daughter find Their completeness within Her.

Some Traditions understand the Great Mother to be similar to the goddess Kali, a goddess of both life and destruction and that is perfectly acceptable from a more Eastern approach to the Divine Feminine Trinity, principally from Shaktism. As such, certain Traditions are careful to not approach the Absolute, directly.

As Janites (along with the Lady of Light Chantry, headed by Rt. Rev. Georgia E. B. Cobb), we tend to be more Western in our approach to the Great Mother. We are Trinitarian-focused in our prayers and rites. We do not fear to approach the Great Mother.

In the same manner, in certain denominations of Christianity, God the Father is understood to be the Ground of All Being/Absolute Deity and yet, the Father is known through His Son and He is worshiped. Christians do not fear to approach the Father.

Tree Roots in the River

Though the Great Mother is the Darkness beyond the light and the Light beyond the darkness and as such, there is much that we cannot know about Her, She is revealed to us through the Divine Mother, the Holy Daughter and especially, through Madria Rhea who represents the Great Mother.

The Great Mother is the Source of the All and so what flows from Her helps us to know Her. She is the Eternal Wellspring of the River of Life and the Eternal Source of the Celestial Mother, of the Holy Daughter, of the Janati and all the living.

Though there is much that is unknowable about the Great Mother, as Our Mother who gave us Life, She knows us, intimately. Though we call Her by Name, that Name is Mystery: Mysteria. (Thanks to ArchMatrona Georgia Cobb.)

The roots, ah the roots in the dark soil, such a fitting analogy for the Great Mother Who is the Root of All Life in Her Shimmering Darkness. In Her Twilight time of day, She is the Sheltering Stars above us. (From our liturgy.) In Her time of the Darkest Hour before the Dawn. She brings us the Light.

12 )Life is the life of the spirit- the First Principle; beyond being and unbeing. Life Was before existence. Life is the cause of existence. 

16) Let her (the soul) not trust the ground her feet are set upon and doubt the Ground upon which that ground stands. Rather, let her doubt the sea, the sky, the fingers of her hand and the breath of her mouth; for all these things may be illusions, as, in some sense, they are.

17) But, let her know Life Divine as the Truth beyond truth and the Faith beyond faith and doubt. (Title 2, Chapter 1 THE CRYSTAL TABLET).

In our day and age, in this time of troubled confusion, many have given up on the idea of faith. They feel it is an outmoded idea and tend to forget the strong roots that Faith can bring into our lives and into our hestias (sacred hearth-homes). But, the tree cannot stand, the tree does not have life without the roots that cannot be seen. So deep into the ground do they go, but, they are there.

Some believe it is folly to believe in that which cannot be seen and yet, we learn from quantum physics that the unseen is the source and potential of all that is seen and so it is with the Great Mother.

We know the Holy Daughter, as visions of Sophia have shown, as the sky above us, as the natural world around us and within each of us because the Holy Daughter is the Soul of the World and She is our soul. We are One with Her and through Her, we are One with the Mother and through Them, we are One with the Great Mother/Absolute Deity, though our finite minds lack complete comprehension of this Great Mystery.

We know the Celestial Mother as the Flame in the temple of our hearts and in the love of every mother for Her child. We know Her through prayer, through aeons of generations, through visions, through scripture and through ageless Tradition.

3a80437d0e307c345c2cf85c00479d40

But the One Absolute Root remains buried deep within the cosmic soil. Hidden. Beyond the soil. Beyond the cosmos. Beyond manifest creation. And yet, without that One Root there would be no manifest creation. There would be no life. No soul. No spirit. No Mother. No Daughter. No Janati. No cosmos. No world. No Heaven. The Great Mother is that Still Centre Point of the great Cosmic Fora from Whom the All flows.

Though She is hidden, though She is Mystery, like the Holy Daughter and the Celestial Mother, we may approach Her as we would a beloved Grandmother. In Her quiet Stillness, in Her luminous Darkness, She is always there, waiting.

The Holy Daughter gives us our soul through Her Love.

The Celestial Mother gives us our spirit through Her Light.

The Great Mother gives us life for She is Life.

And that is enough for us to know. As the scriptures state: 15) And from this tree of all knowledge and of the boundaries beyond which knowledge cannot pass, I have given you but the seed of one apple.  18) But, I am not sent to discourse with you upon these matters, but to lead you to deliverance in Perfection. 19) And all the knowledge that shall bring you to deliverance is contained within the seed of an apple. 22) Therefore, when you think upon the questions of life, of time or of the spheres, contemplate first, the seed of Truth and let your thoughts unfold from that seed. 23) Let the pure and single note of Truth attune your souls. Then, shall mind rise up into soul and soul breathe the breath of Spirit. (Title 3, Chapter 5 THE SERMON OF THE APPLE SEED).

Blessed is Our Mother God, the Holy One.

She Who is the Celestial Mother, Mari,

She Who is the Holy Daughter, Kore,

She Who is the Great Mother, Mysteria,

Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the Darkness.

Blessed is She.

May Our Lady bless you,
