Mnemosyne ~ Inspiration
The Myth: “The Titaness Mnemosyne, daughter of Gaia and Uranus, is the personification of memory. She and Zeus are the parents of the nine Muses, who are beings of inspiration. Their existence shows that memory and divinity combine to create true inspiration.”
The Message: “Memories hold all that we know about life and ourselves. Memory is the sacred record keeper of our lives, yet memory and actuality are often different. Actuality is the account of facts, while memory is about how we internalize these facts and how we have experienced our lives, neither being truer than the other.
The divine is the essence of life itself – the universal experience that binds us together – and exists both beyond and within ourselves. It is the consciousness of nature and the cycles of nature; life, death, truth, and love.
When this universal essence blends with your inner realm of interpretation and experience (your personal reality), you receive inspiration. Symbols come to life, sounds open inner doorways, and words become keys to unlocking the otherwise overwhelming experience of life.
If you have drawn this card, then you are being touched by inspiration now. All that you have gathered from your life, as well as all that you feel from life, is awakening in your mind now. New worlds and opportunities are opening up within you.
Make sure you really experience what you are feeling now. The inspiration you receive at this time comes from a divine place and speaks of a truth that is not only personal but also universal. Write down ideas and follow them through into actions. New possibilities are opening to you, and you must grab this feeling by the reins and let it take you to new places. Nurture inspiration in your life; surround yourself with things that bring you to life. Spend time in nature, dance, be creative. Above all, listen to the whispers on the wind, for they are leading you to behold the limits of all you have previously known.”*

The full moon called for a shift in perspective, one of those necessary shifts. One that you can come along nicely with, or one that will drag you kicking and screaming through the finish line. Ya, it’s that important.
Because what is on the other side of this shift is inspiration, pure and sparkling bright. If your pilot light has felt dimly lit lately, it has the potential to sizzle. If you shift that pesky perception, that is…
Memories and feelings and experiences all wrapped into neat little packages and stored in our physical bodies will require a gentle unwrapping and bringing out into the Light. It will require a truce between fact and emotional fiction. An acknowledgment, an embrace, a forgiveness and a great release. What else is possible?
Inspiration, passion, ignition, co-creation. Past lives blending together into one. Karma released. Body, mind and spirit healed, awakened, ascending. Ready.
