I wander through quiet woods, tears of frustration and anguish streaming down my face. I feel lost and afraid, but something pushes me to blindly venture into the unknown. I stumble over roots and hear the crunching of gravel and hardened soil beneath my feet as I hurriedly make my way into the dark forest. I feel a force that is propelling me onward, and yet I do not know where it is I’m going. Finally I fall to my knees amid a bed of flowers, unable to run any further. I look up into the night sky, the pale moonlight cascading across wisping clouds. Nothing but the sound of a calm breeze flowing through the leaves penetrates the silence of the tranquil forest. I let out a cry of desperation, searching in vain for a sign of hope through the bleak nothingness.
And through that darkness comes a voice, Her voice. A voice that is maternal and ethereal, that touches my very soul. A voice that I have never heard before, and yet seems so familiar. A voice that holds immense power, and yet a feeling of tenderness. I hear Her speak to me, as though She’s known me my whole life. “I am with you, my child. You have nothing to fear. Your search is nearly over, and soon you shall know the touch of my power. I am your Goddess.”
A sudden chill runs down my spine, my hands beginning to tremble as Her comforting words float through my mind. She feels close, as though She is whispering these words into my ear. And yet, I also feel as though I am not yet close to her. I quickly rise to my feet, hoping to look upon whomever the heavenly voice is coming from. As I look around for Her a faint smoke weaves through the trees, obscuring everything in sight. I feel the pleasant scent of the smoke begin to calm me, lulling me into a feeling of security in Her presence. “What is your name, my Goddess?” I call out. “I must know, that I may find my way to you!”
A moment of silence befalls the forest, a moment which feels like an eternity. The breeze suddenly goes away leaving no sound but my heart, pounding as though it would burst from my chest. Finally, She speaks again. “You will know my name, in time. Your spirit mate is your guide, she will help you to find your way. I have willed the two of you together, that you may both know my embrace. Once you have found me, all will be as it is destined to be. Have patience, my child. I will always be with you, and soon enough you will know who I am.”
And with those words I feel her presence fade away, the smoke rolling back into the inky night. The gentle breeze returns to my ears, and I look around to find the forest once again still and peaceful. I feel a wave of longing wash over me as I slowly fall back to my knees, Her words echoing through my mind. I sit in the bed of flowers, contemplating what She told me and trying to make sense of it all. As I close my eyes and take a deep breath, I begin to feel myself becoming one with the nature around me. The Goddess wants me to find my way to her, and I will stop at nothing until I do.
I know that my journey is far from over, that I must know more before She will grace me with her divine embrace. I eagerly await the night the Goddess comes to me again, but until then I must continue to learn. Once I am ready, She shall reveal all to me.
