I don’t understand the mystery of grace—only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.” Anne Lamott
Divine Intelligence is such a wise and clever Tricktress. Sometimes she gives us soft and subtle nudges and other times she provides an epic display of fireworks while dancing cartwheels around us. I took a solid year to write my book Rock Your Feminine Type to Rock Your Business. The process of writing transformed me heart and soul, and what I wrote transformed me. The irony is, I thought I was the teacher, and all along, I was merely a humble student of the Divine Feminine.
I wrote my book on Feminine Personality Types. I put my entire life on hold to focus on completing this project, and it was quite an adventure. To say I have had a dance with the Divine Feminine would be an understatement. My part in the relationship was to commit 100 percent to my project. It wasn’t easy, this dance. In fact, I left everything on that dance floor, because she demanded nothing less.
The mystical ways Universal Intelligence provided for me left me breathless—ways I could never have planned, imagined or invented. Just the right people showed up, as if on cue. They were a scrumptious cast of characters. The crazy thing was that each person who stepped onto this caravan received their own delicious gift—a healing orchestrated by the Tricktress Mistress herself.
The circle always completes itself.
I had to throw all my ideas of what I thought should be overboard, and surf the waves of the unknown mystery. I tossed out my pre-packaged, pre-programmed plans and let her keep me afloat. Like any good relationship, I had to pay close attention. Intimacy with Source, God, Goddess, The Divine is something I have had to develop through years of patient ear to heart listening—like putting a conch shell to my ear. Her sound is as soft as a whisper and as deep as the ocean.
What I learned in this process is to never limit or doubt Universal Intelligence. The circle always completes itself. Our ego tries to convince us otherwise--don’t listen.
When co-creating with The Goddess, get yourself pointed in the direction you want to go and start walking. Next, commit to your direction 100 percent, but leave the path and the way up to her—The Tricktress Divina. There is no point in fighting her—she has fireworks and can dance cartwheels around you. If you are lucky and wise, you will be helpless to her charms.
Dare to be bold, be brilliant and always be you!
