A Visit from my Ancient Elder

painted by David K John

Hello, Beloveds!

Another post so soon??? Right! The mind reels, doesn’t it! LOL That’s because this post is DIRECTLY related to yesterday’s message about the Sagittarius Full Moon.

Before I get into it, I must share with you the amazing evening I had last night with some Gorgeous Goddesses ~ awesome women I met for the first time ~ and one spectacular Puerto Rican Padre.  We dined and danced together, and the highlight of the night was being on the ocean for a crystal bowl ceremony in honor of the Moon and World Invocation Day.

Just as the bowls began to play, the Moon peaked up over the horizon.  It was truly awe~inspiring and mystical to watch Her ascend in the Sky.  All of this is important to know because I feel it set the stage for my mind to be in the perfect space to receive the visitation from my Ancient Elder.

I wrote about the Ancient Elder within yesterday. The Ancient Elder is one of the Archetypes of Capricorn.  Having Capricorn as my Sun sign in the 7th house (house of partnerships), I am recognized as an Elder in my relationships, yet until yesterday, I never consciously acknowledged the existence of a relationship with our Inner Ancient Elder.  Strange, to say the least!  You see, when I write a blog post, I never know what will come forth until I sit down at the keyboard.  It is clear to me now that my Inner Ancient Elder was opening the door for Her impending visitation.  She appeared last night in my dreams.  With my Mercury in Aquarius, the Dreamtime is where and how I receive my messages and visitations.

Here is my dream:

I was in a restaurant sitting at a table with some of my family and friends.  I happened to look over my left shoulder, and I saw my Granny (my father’s mother) sitting at a table in the back of the restaurant.  I am stunned to see her sitting there because she is deceased!  I heard myself exclaim, “Granny!  What are you doing here?!”  I jumped out of my chair and ran back to her to give her a big hug.  I said to her, “I can’t believe you are here!  All these years, I thought you were dead!  Why did they tell me you were dead?!”  The next thing I knew, my Aunt Barbara (my father’s eldest sister) was sitting at the table with us. I turned to her and asked her, “WHY did you tell me Granny had died!?”  Her entire demeanor got very stiff and unapologetic.  “It was for the best,” she insisted.  I asked her a few more times about why she had done it and why it was for the best, but she just dug in and would not respond to me. The funny thing was that I was keenly aware that  I wasn’t even getting mad at my Aunt Barbara about it. I was just so excited to be sitting with my Granny again.  So, I told my Granny that I wanted to introduce her to my friends and family. As I was saying this to Granny, in the back of my mind, I heard my Inner Critic chastising me for suggesting the introductions, telling me that my family and friends would be judgmental and uncomfortable about meeting her. (My parents were divorced when I was a year old, and my mother’s family doesn’t know my father’s family.)  Fortunately, I was able to quiet my Inner Critic, and as I introduced my Granny to my friends and family, she was warmly received.

When I awoke, I didn’t remember my dream right away.  It was about an hour or so later that it came back to me, and the meaning of it was present with its recollection.

It was very clear that my Granny represented my Inner Ancient Elder.  I love that my Inner Ancient Elder showed up as Feminine.  I also love that it was my father’s mother rather than my mother’s mother because that was a nod to my Sun (Earthly Father / Divine Father) in Capricorn (Ancient Elder).  My Aunt Barbara represented my egoic self, working to “protect” me, as the ego does, from anything that will hurt us ~ including judgments, criticism, and disapproval.  Of course, I believed my Granny was dead because I was not in touch with my Ancient Elder.  And, the friends and family that were at the table with me in the restaurant (nourishing/nurturing place for ourselves) were the other aspects of myself with whom I am in relationship.  What a blessing that they received my Ancient Elder so warmly.  What a blessing that I have reconnected with my Inner Ancient Elder.

Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!

I hope my experience will help you to reconnect with your own Ancient Elder.  Please share your experiences with your own Ancient Elder in the comment section below.  I look forward to reading them.

Many blessings to you, Gorgeous Goddesses!

  1. Thank you for sharing and I also watched the full moon it was called the Strawberry Moon? As it came up over the ocean it was covered in the skyline lots of clouds and eventually shined out between them. So magically shining on the sea and I feel so drawn to the Moon. Wished I would have had some goddesses with me but I did have my goddess doggy Athena there. Angel light. Deborah
