As I feel into the burning of Notre Dame cathedral, I feel this sense of inevitability and of surrender too. This occurrence is a representation of the death and rebirth momentum process that we are all undergoing individually and as a collective human culture.
‘Our Lady’ cathedral is not just a representation of a patriarchal church matrix system that we are quickly outgrowing and meant to move beyond. The cathedral was not just a house of darkness and wounded shadow representation. To take an overt glee in her burning is to deny the parts of you that are still connected to expressing this shadow. There is a mourning here too in what has been ‘lost’, what has gone up in flames, what will no longer be in the same form…..just as is happening inside of our own personal death-rebirth processes too.
Notre Dame was also a temple created in honor of the Divine Mother…whatever frequencies could and did come through the filtering of the church. Whatever energies just naturally ARE innately in all of our souls in connection to Divine Feminine frequencies. NO BEing or organization or institution is just truly evil and of the dark. To feel this is to be overly polarized to a good vs. evil picture that is STILL anchored to the 3D/lower 4D matrix.
Tribute and celebration of the Mother was the TRUE mortar that held the stone bricks of the outer form together. Over the 200 years that it was created and alchemized, love of the Divine Feminine inspired and motived the formation of it. When I visited there many years ago, I could feel/sense the Divine Mother all around me….even though I wasn’t as consciously awakened to Her energies back then.
I climbed the bell tower’s steep stairs and I felt teleported ‘back’ to the timelines where other souls had done that too. With reverence and appreciation and a sense of honor, they rang the bells that were their means of celebrating the Divine Feminine. I felt particularly connected to the gargoyles and their protective vigilance, which mirrored my own inner protectors and Gatekeepers and guides that had long guarded the feminine. The rose windows reflected back the beauty of the metaphysical….. and I stood in front of them for a long time, feeling waves of appreciation for the devotion that inspired them.
As you go through whatever reactions are coming up in response to the burning of Notre Dame, there is an opportunity to feel your Metasoul aspect (soul fragment) that is connected to the church. You may have a soul sister/brother that is deeply attached to this temple as an outer representation of a deep inner trust and faith that can only be expressed this way. Or you may connect to more of a shadow aspect that needed to declare complete allegiance to the Church as a means of survival and soul experimentation.
FEELING what comes up in response to this event, making it personal, leads to the next discovery places of self and soul…..which is where it really starts to get interesting, cathartic, and useful.
I feel much love and support from the Divine Mother today to help those that need it to digest this event…..and the ongoing support from Her that is just THERE as needed and asked for. That is perhaps the biggest offering of this….a reminder that the Divine Feminine lives and breathes not in a building, yet in each of our hearts and souls….always.
