The Goddess Who Dove Through the Sapphire & Emerald Door
In an infinite, invisible, timeless space Creation Goddess journeyed silently looking for the planet where the jewels she carried inside could awaken and come alive. The Goddess didn’t wander alone. Radiant Beings traveled with her - a Sky, a Sun, a Moon, and Stars. They wanted the same thing as the Goddess, and they followed her wherever she went.
Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings wanted one thing, and they wanted it so very much. They wanted the jewels they carried inside to awaken and come alive. They had promised themselves and each other this would be so. And they knew this would be so.
One day Creation Goddess came to a portal of swirling colors, the sapphire and emerald door leading into the Magnificent Oceans of Earth. Her hands reached through the colorless winds of the infinite, invisible, timeless space till they were bathed in radiant blues and greens, and the Goddess knew,
This is the planet where the jewels we carry inside will awaken and come alive!
Creation Goddess dove through the sapphire and emerald door and the Radiant Beings followed her. They spiraled and swirled in a flowing descent till they reached the Magnificent Oceans of Earth. They breathed the waters in, and the waters breathed with them. All at once Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings became visible and found they had bodies, visible jewels. They celebrated the jewels of their bodies, swimming through the waters in bliss. They surrendered to the sapphire and emerald flow.
Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings were deep inside an Ocean, a Sea of radiant blues and greens. They saw sapphire and emerald Mountains sparkling deep below. They swam to the Mountains and wandered among them. The Mountains emitted a fiery sapphire and emerald light and like the Sea, they were breathing. They swam to the bottom of the Sea where crystals and corals glowed. Creation Goddess sat upon a crystal and Sky, Sun, Moon, and Stars sat around her in a circle.
Then, they heard a sound. It was the sound of Earth’s fiery emerald heart beating beneath Sea’s floor. A Radiant Being rose before them, a Goddess like no divine feminine they had ever seen. She stood in the center of the circle emitting a fiery emerald light that filled them with excitement. Her skin was dark emerald, almost black. Her eyes were deep gold. Her long, thick hair floated around her and shone with and rubies and gold. She smiled at them affectionately and sang, “Welcome to the Magnificent Oceans of Earth, Creation Goddess and Radiant Beings of Sky, Sun, Moon and Stars! I am the Goddess of Earth, Mother of the Sapphire and Emerald Mountains.”
Earth opened her arms wide, exalting in the rhythms of her fiery heartbeat, and began to dance. How she flamed and spiraled, quivering with the molten liquid light spinning from her core. How Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings loved her dance!
The Goddess of Earth gave to each of them a warm, soft, fragrant emerald. She told them, “This is food.” It began to melt within them. “Thank you!” they said, swallowing the emerald. Then, Earth sat down beside them in the circle.
The waters rose and fell, and a new Radiant Being entered the circle. She too was a Goddess like no divine feminine they had ever seen. She moved with a vast, undulant grace, as if carrying the breath of creation. She emitted a beautiful blue light that filled them with bliss. Her skin was glistening sapphire. Her eyes were dark, sparkling amethyst. Her long, silvery hair floated far behind her and was woven with pearls. She looked at them tenderly and sang, “We are so happy you dove through the sapphire and emerald door! I am the Goddess of Sea, Mother of crystals and corals and all that dwells within the sapphire and emerald flow.”
Sea lifted her arms high and the beautiful blue light she emitted shone everywhere, and she began to dance. How her body moved in waves and whispers of the softest unfoldment of creation. Each movement swelling from an ever-flowing source of fertility. How Creation Goddess and the Radiant Beings loved her dance!
The Goddess of Sea took one of the pearls from her hair and gave it to Creation Goddess. Creation Goddess held the wondrous pearl tenderly in her palm. “Thank you!” she said and Sea wove the living, awoken pearl into the Goddess’ hair. Then, Sea sat down beside them in the circle.
Now that they were gathered in the circle at the bottom of the Sea, it was time to begin.
Creation Goddess breathed deeply. She embraced the first jewel that rose inside her, the jewel ofbreath. She felt herself expand. “I love you,” the Goddess said to the jewel of breath and her breath awoke and came alive! Her breath rose and fell like the waves of the Sea. She sat upon the crystal breathing deeply, falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of breath.
As Creation Goddess fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of breath, she embraced another jewel, the jewel of seeing. She saw the colors inside. “I love you,” the Goddess said to the jewel of seeing and the colors awoke and came alive! She saw the colors of Sky, the colors of Sun, the colors of Moon, the colors of Stars, the colors of Earth, the colors of Sea, and the colors of Goddess. She sat upon the crystal, seeing the colors, falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of seeing.
As Creation Goddess fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of seeing, she embraced another jewel, the jewel of feeling. She heard a voice inside whisper, “I am the jewel of your infinite radiant heart and the luminous core of your limitless wise knowing.” “I love you,” the Goddess said to the jewel of feeling and the jewel of feeling awoke and came alive!
Creation Goddess sat upon the crystal feeling deeply, falling deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of feeling. Suddenly the jewel of feeling trembled, and the voice inside whispered “yes!” For the Goddess knew what she wanted to do. The Goddess knew what she would do. She would rise from the bottom of the Sea!
Creation Goddess rose from the crystal. She stepped into the center of the circle. The Radiant Beings smiled at her and she smiled back at them. Goddess touched Sky and he floated into the circle. And Goddess kissed Sky, and Sky was breathed into Goddess. And Goddess rose through the waters carrying Sky.
On the surface of the Sea all was dark, and still, and silent. Sky floated inside Creation Goddess. Inside Creation Goddess there was light, movement, and sound. Sky breathed with Goddess as she stood on the waters in the darkness, and the stillness, and the silence, and Goddess was not still. Goddess bowed to the seven directions of the Magnificent Oceans of Earth, and then she breathed out Sky. Goddess breathed out Sky and Sky was born from Goddess. In waves upon waves of dancing lapis lazuli light, Sky was born into the sapphire and emerald world!
The Goddess opened her arms to Sky and together they embraced the jewel rising inside, the jewel of dance! “I love you,” they whispered to the jewel of dance and the jewel of dance awoke and came alive, and Goddess and Sky danced!
And the stillness and the darkness were no more. All quivered and shimmered and moved with Goddess and Sky. As Goddess and Sky danced, the waters began to dance, the air began to dance, the seven directions unfolded in blissful undulation, and the first winds were born!
As Creation Goddess and Sky fell deeper and deeper in love with the jewel of dance, Sky danced higher and higher, and Goddess danced upon the waters. Sky danced farther and farther across the Magnificent Oceans of Earth. Creation Goddess smiled, feeling the Sky seeds Sky had given her as he floated inside her. Both Sky and Goddess knew they were one. Goddess watched Sky expand more and more as she danced upon the waves, and was filled with joy.
