The Goddess Nu Kua

Nu Kua is the Creatrix Goddess of Ancient China.

When the heavens and earth were separated, there were no human beings. Nu Kua was bored and lonely and so made the first humans out of clay made from mud from the Yellow River. Her breath and Yin became the first women; Her breath and Yang became the first men. The first of these were fashioned, and molded, with her hands. However, as she found how tedious and time-consuming this was, she began to drop a rope into the river’s clay and to allow droplets to form and to fall from the rope. Hence, those that were molded became the nobles and those who were unmolded became the peasants.

She is said to have the body of a woman from the waist up, and the body of a serpent/snake/dragon from the waist down. There are also myths of her having the body of a Tortoise.

As the myth goes, the monster, Kung-Kung, during a great battle, flattened the mountains, tore a hole in the sky, and tilted the Earth.

Nu Kua came to restore order. She melted five sacred, colored stones and repaired the sky. She took control of water, enabling the rains to fall when and where necessary and put out fires. She put the seasons in the right order.

She replaced the pillars of heaven with the legs of a great turtle/tortoise so that they would not collapse; Dragons on these pillars guard the path of the sun and the moon.

She corrected problems on Earth by quelling the problems of human chaos, by establishing marriage, ensuring that children would be raised correctly.

After restoring order, Nu Kua retreated to her domain, the sky, wearing a compass to symbolize order.

She has dominion over marital relations and fertility. It is said that she responds to prayers directed toward her.

Nu Kua represents order and its’ restoration, is a calming influence in stressful situations and also helps with a positive attitude after negative events.

Order

There is a Way

and I am that Way

the Way of Nature that moves in all things

In the beginning

I created the universal pattern

the Way things are

the Way things flow

the Way things need to be

Then

I sequenced the seasons

harmonized the hillsides

organized the oceans

till all was auspiciously arranged

I am the natural order of things

I am the Way

My Name is Isis: The Egyptian Goddess

Renee’s Thought’s Worth Catching

June, 2015

We are All Worth Catching

The Summer Solstice – it is a time for such extreme heat here in Texas, that it is something that is hard for me to look forward to. It has honestly been a hard time for the to even find a way to resonate with at all.

As the years have gone on, and the heatwaves have cooked me, I have learned to stay with the air. And then I have come to realize that the themes of this precious time for me included of discovering passion love and relationships (friendships and self included) and igniting gusto for goals and a drive for healthiness.

The Solstice also makes the truth shine as the Sun illuminates extreme light on everything. It shines for longer days, so with the high sun and the brightness, honesty and feelings come out to play. It is such a perfect time for me, because right now in my life, I am learning the truths of my inner workings. And I am opening myself to myself. And that is a gorgeous feeling. And to let those feelings and dark places be lit up, well that is nothing short of miraculous for me.

The Solstice itself on June 21st is the longest day of the year and expect the passion I mentioned to be strong throughout the day. Whether it shows up in a love relationship, in your creative endeavors, even in cleaning and organizing your house, go with that passionate feeling. Let the heat and the longer day infuse you with the feeling it is meant to, and go with being red hot!

I suggest using a Pink Tourmaline for this day as well as the Rose Quartz as they both represent love, passion, and honesty. And remember, you can include love for self, honesty with self and so much more. These stones are great to keep on a table near you, in your pockets or purse if you are out, right next to you, or if you have them as jewelry, wear them!

At the end of the day, Life is about trusting and feeling. And allowing. This whole season is a reminder to allow Life’s way work with you, you have the power to create your world with each second. Life is always working for you, not to you. What comes and what goes, well those are both okay. Trust in the process. Feel your way through it. Everything is happening the way it is supposed to go down.

Blessed Summer Solstice, and acknowledge your truth, your passion, and go for it! You deserve it – like I have said —- “if you believe your milkshake brings all the boys (girls too!) to your yard, then it can!”
