Communicating With Ancient Seers
Ancient cultures relied on Seers for wisdom and insight. They may have been the locale Priestess in the Temple or one of the Moon Goddesses/Gods the temples were built to honor. The temples were most often dedicated to Goddesses because the moon was symbolic of the feminine forces. These energetic forces were considered the more sensitive of the two natures (male/female) and therefore more able to receive deep insights and information from other realms.
Most of the ancient Moon Seers (Goddesses) were represented by certain symbols and images that reflected their strengths and influences.
It is important to study these symbols and images, along with the teachings and energies associated with the Seer you have chosen to work with so that your ability to connect and resonate with that Goddess is fully immersed.
Use these symbols in your meditations and divining work to commune more fully with the Seer of your choice.
Using the Ancient Symbols
Strengthen your connection to a Moon Goddess by visualizing her particular symbols and images during your meditations.
Draw the symbols on your altar cover or on your body.
Add candles in the appropriate colors and scents and anoint them for the purpose of connection with the Moon Goddess. Carve the symbols into the candles
Add a symbolic object or statue to your altar that represents the Goddess you have chosen. For example: Toy figures of archers or deer can represent Diana. A small sphere and a wishbone can be combined to represent the symbols of Isis. It you have an altar dedicated to one particular Goddess, carve or paint the symbols on your altar.
Drawing Down The Moon
Drawing Down The Moon refers to a Moon meditation designed to connect you with the Moon Goddess you have chosen to work with.
Once you have decided upon a Goddess, studied the symbols and readied your alter it is time to begin your meditation.
During your meditation, visualize that particular being coming and communing with you. Ask her to present you with a gift that will represent herself and the powers you want to divine. You can ask for a special gift from the Goddess and ask that she make any information she divulges to be clear and concise.
Be sure that you have paper and pen near by to record what you receive during the meditation. If it difficult to remember what happens during an altered state like meditation, so write down the words or draw the symbols quickly after your meditation ends so that they are fresh in your mind.
Study this information and add it to your work, the next time you draw down your moon goddess. As you add to your Moon Meditation work, you will find your ability to communicate with these ancient seers growing deeper and easier to access.
