Virtual Circle Monday | Opportunity Knocks

Welcome to Virtual Circle Monday. Each Monday I’ll post an exercise – sourcing inspiration from a variety of sources – to get your thinking about your spiritual path.

Simply blog your answer to the question below and then add a direct link to your post in the comments, and I’ll put a link to your blog on this post. Or, leave a message in the comments section. If your answer is very personal, and you don’t wish to share with the group, simple write your answer in your journal.

This week, we’re drawing inspiration from Isha Lerner’s Triple Goddess Tarot.

A Pirali Bengali Brahmin from Calcutta, Tagore once wrote:

“The same stream of life that runs through the world
runs through my veins night and day in rhythmic measure.
It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust
of the earth into numberless waves of flowers.”

In The Spirit of Findhorn, Eileen Caddy wrote:

“The key to your happiness and contentment lies within you,
within your own heart and mind.
The way you start each day is very important;
you can start off on the right foot or on the wrong one.
You can wake up with a song of joy and gratitude in your heart for the new day,
for being alive, for the very wonder of living,
and for being in tune and harmony with the rhythm of all life.
You can expect the very best from the coming day and therefore draw it to you.
Or you can start the day with a chip on your shoulder, disgruntled and out of rhythm.
You are responsible for what today will bring,
and knowing it gives you an even greater responsibility
than those souls who are not aware of it and therefore know no better.
You cannot blame your state of mind on anyone else. It all rests with you.”

At this stage of initiation, the soul moves beyond judgment, error, and limitation, for the lightning bolt has struck a responsive cord within. The aspirant is shown the power of his or her motral and spiritual choices.

At this level of awareness, the opportunity for self-transcendence is made known.

One is shocked into stillness and surrender. Defensive strategies and systems of denial fall away and all that remains is the wisdom of one’s true nature.

Through Her ability to swiftly change and alter realities, Oya (Goddess of Winds, Tornadoes, and Lightning) ignites the spark of transcendence within your soul.

She aids you as you burn through the veil of attachment that has hindered your ability to fully embrace your destiny. Her bolt of lightning, along with Her fierce winds and storm, electrifies your inner life.

Powerful, unexpected events may surface at this time, asking you to look deeply into the interior of your present life circumstances.

Have faith in yourself and the changes you are invited to make at this time. Move with this energy by speaking your truth and making the necessary changes to set yourself free from the confines of the past.

What growth opportunities knock
at the door of your heart?



  1. Love it! AMEN!

  2. To know that we always have a choice–whether it seems like it or not! Also, the lesson isn’t always clear at the moment and that’s ok. Just go with our inner knowing–listen to our heart–truly listen. And if we’re not getting a clear reading, we don’t have to do anything at the moment. We can just sit with it and be.
    Thanks, Michelle!!! ❤

  3. My growth opportunity is to offer my healing practise to a wider section of the community. I am a powerful healer and it is time that I offered my services to humanity. Bless you for the opportunity to put this down in writing…
