Found this lovely meditation which was written by MommaWhiteCougar the Pagan in her e-book WHITECOUGAR’S JOURNALS: the diaries of a Wiccan Witch! (Witchcraft and Wicca books)
This was emailed to a friend on the other side of the world who was having a hard time. I loved the imagery and appreciated the time, effort and loving kindness which went into the creation of this meditation story for a friend.
I was caught by the first couple of lines: “you are the weaver – you are the woven one – you are the dreamer – you are the dream”. Reminds me of a saying – if life is all lemonade stop squeezing lemons! – pretty sure that’s not right 🙂 – but the jist being that we have control at a basic level even if we don’t think we do. I like the thought that by harnessing our imagination we can weave another pattern for our lives.
Here are a few snippets of the meditation which also concludes with a chant for a moonbear.
You are the weaver; you are the woven one! You are the dreamer; you are the dream!
Moonbear sat on the cliff edge, staring silently across the dreaming valley. the Moon had risen only moments before, and Her clear, watery light tinged his dark hair blue. Days of wandering, desperately lonely, paled by comparison to the scene below.
As the Moon rose higher, Her light awoke the Spirits of the valley – Undines from the lake rising in a spiral dance of mist, Wood Sprites waving twiggy arms in joyous celebration of life and Gnomes peering from rocks singing the song of the soil.
He rose, and his pale naked body morphed into that of a tall grizzly bear – furred, clawed and proud in the Moonlight………..
MoonBear joined the dance of the Spirits, ecstatic in the knowledge that he was never really alone at all, and anytime the pressure of the world was too great, he could escape to the valley of the Moon.
This meditation is a gem especially as it was unexpected, placed as it was in the middle of “everyday” jottings. I hope there are more jewels to come in the diaries. But if not I would be interested to read more of MommaWhiteCougar’s meditations in future.
