Eve and the Serpent

Goddess Eve has been holding me hostage now for about a week. Now, I don't mean hostage in a negative way at all. She has been very present with me and as such I haven't been able to get her out of my mind. So today on my very cold walk after work, I called out to Goddess Eve and I asked Her what She had to tell me.

There was a brief pause and the stillness was deafening and I heard Her say:

"My Story is being held captive and I need you and my other Sisters to speak the Truth, live the Truth and love the Truth that is My Story. My Story! Not the Story that was hijacked by the patriarchal writers of the book of Genesis found in the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament is what the Christians call it), but My Story and the Story of the Serpent! I have been in your Heart and Mind because the time is now as Goddess is getting stronger every day! This story holds back so many people who would see through the veil otherwise."

I told Eve that I would be glad to be Her Voice!

Here is the HerStory!

"I was created at the same time as the other Mammals. We were all created in the Image of the Divine; both female and male! One day my friend the Serpent came to visit. She told me great stories of this Garden, for you see She was created way before the Mammals. She knew the Wonders and the Magic held in the Rock People, the Mountain People, the Cloud and the Water People. She knew all the Plant and Animals, both in the Sky and in the Water! She was the Wise One! She was the Healer and Spoke for the Divine.

And so this day my friend the Serpent and I were walking in the Garden and She posed a Question to me, "Do you know there is a Tree in the middle of the Garden that is the most beautiful and has the most delicious Apples on it?" Of course I knew of this Tree, but I had never felt the desire to eat one of the apples from that tree. We walked to it and I gazed upon it. Yes, the apples were the reddest red I had ever seen.

Let me tell you, Sister, the Desire to eat one of these apples was overwhelming. Serpent told me I must ask the Tree for permission, and so I did!

Grandmother Tree then told me HerStory of how She grew from a very tiny seed that is housed inside the delicious apples She produces. She taught me about the precious Seeds that reside inside of me too.

I asked if I could eat of Her Fruit and She told me that I could but to know that this was the first step in Understanding that I embodied the Divine. She told me that when I ate the Apple that my eyes would be opened and I would see the beauty of my body; hear my own Divine Voice; and understand that I was the Vessel who would bring other humans into this gorgeous Garden. She explained that this was a great honor and responsibility to be the Caretaker, the Mother, the Creatress! I would be the very Vessel that the Goddess would continue to Create through! I would be transformed; re-birthed; I would be shedding my Old Skin of Understanding! Was I ready?

Serpent Friend slithered up my leg and around my back and let me put the apple on Her Head. She blessed it and I was ready to taste the juiciness of this Gift!

Yes! My eyes were opened! The sky was the bluest ever; the Moon spoke directly to me; the Sun lit up my face and I felt the warmth spread through my Body. Oh, my Body! What beautiful Breasts, what powerful legs and arms, what an intelligent brain and loving heart, and how juicy my Labia and Vagina were. How had I not noticed this beautiful container for the Goddess Spirit that was Me?

I laughed a deep and glorious Laugh and Grandmother Tree and Serpent laughed with me. Before I knew it, all of Creation laughed with me and then it happened! Oh, my Sister, the most glorious thing happened! Goddess embraced me and held me tightly to Her and said, "My Daughter, you are gifted for all time to be my Vessel in the World. I have been waiting for you to be ready to Hear YourStory. You are the one I anoint to be my Co-Creator! You are Woman and you will be my Birther in the Garden. As more Women appear some will give birth to other humans; some will birth great ideas, some will birth Me! But Woman will be the Voice for the Divine. And my Voice is LOVE and TRUTH.

And so you see, this is not the story at all that people have been told for so many eons. MyStory is trapped in the lies and betrayal of a Patriarchal God who punishes and passes Judgement. This is not The Truth!"

I waited a bit not knowing if Goddess Eve was finished with HerStory. She was letting it soak into my very DNA so that I had one of those Ah-Ha moments! I Re-Membered! It was as if I was right there in the Garden! And I heard a Laugh, right there on my Walk:

"My Love, of course you Remember! You were there! You see all Women throughout time and all Women Present and All Women in the Future were there! It is in Our DNA! We were not the betrayers of the Trust of God that ended up getting us thrown out of the Garden. You see, we were never asked to leave the Garden. We are still in the Garden. And yet as time progressed and the Patriarchal Story took hold, people began to forget that the Garden is ours to tend and following the Patriarchal Story of Power and Control we began to Use and Abuse what was given to all as a Gift! Love and Truth were replaced with Hate and Lies! We did not bring "Sin" into the World. It came as a manifestation of a Story that encourages the use of Power and Control for one's own agenda. And Goddess Grieves!

So, please be my Voice! Be the Voice of the Goddess! Tell MyStory in the correct way! Speak up for Me and in turn you will be speaking up for Goddess and for all Creation; both male and female, rocks and mountains, clouds and water and all animals that swim, fly or walk!

Or Slither.... like my best friend Serpent. She was given a very bad rap in this old story found in Genesis. In that Story, Eve, Adam and the Serpent were all punished for being ready to be Transformed, to be Enlightened and to be Empowered to carry on the Creation that Goddess began out of Love and Truth!

Tell my Story dear Sisters and Brothers! Speak it loud and clear! And Love like you Know that you too Embody all that is the Divine!"

So that my friends is what Eve had to tell me! And so, I am speaking HerStory which is MyStory and is YourStory! Speak it with Love and Truth!

Blessed be!
