Today's message comes from Maat, Egyptian goddess of Justice and Pele, Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes. These two powerful goddesses tell me that sitting on the sidelines, wishing you could do something more fulfilling or more exciting with your life is a complete waste of time. If you feel like you're stuck in a dead-end job or if you feel like you spend all of your time supporting and caring for other people while you ignore your own dreams, goals and passions, you are being put on notice that it is time to STOP! Pele asks, "If you don't embrace your dreams, who will?" Maat adds, "It is right and honorable to support others, to do what's best for the group, but sometimes you need to put yourself first in order to maintain balance. If you are always giving, you never have the chance to replenish your stores of energy. This fosters a feeling of lack which may manifest in anger, resentment, exhaustion or a feeling that you are the victim of your own life." Both goddesses send me the strong message that now is the time to claim your own personal power and take care of YOU! This could mean changing jobs, persuing training that will lead to a new career, taking a class on a subject that intersts you, starting a new business or setting aside time to engage in hobbies or activities that you are passionate about. Whatever it is, the goddesses whisper, "Just do it!"

"Be honest with yourself: What is your heart's true desire."
"If you listen to the sound of your heart and breath, you'll recognize the ancient rhythms of your own internal drumming. This forever connects you with the Mother of all creation and to the sound of planet Earth. These rhythms can't be faked or forged; they're natural and eternal. What part of you are you trying to ignore? What part of you has been overly concerned with pleasing others, to the detriment of hearing the sounds of your own rhythm? Dear child, reach out and extend your arms to embrace your dreams. They're just as much a part of nature as are the trees, animals and sunsets. Don't your own dreams deserve the same respect that you accord everyone and everything that you love? Listen to them, my child. Listen to your dreams. They'll activate the powerful eruption of passion in your life. Don't be afraid of your own passion, for it will propel you naturally and will excite and invigorate you. When you dance to the rhythms of your life, you're truly alive in all ways!"

About Pele (pronounced PAY-lay):
The Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes, Pele's dynamic strength is sometimes misunderstood. She shows us that fire can purify, release us from the old to make way for the new and ignite our passions. Without fire, nothing would change. Call upon Pele to help you get in touch with your true passion and to charge up your motivation and excitement. Pele will help you feel everything on a deeper level, so be unafraid of taking action to manifest our heart's desire.
