Wild Mercy: Living the Fierce and Tender Wisdom of the Women Mystics

Mirabai Starr | Sounds True, 2019

New Mexico-based writer and religion scholar Mirabai Starr weaves together reflections, meditations, and practices that honor the divine feminine. Featuring sections on archetypal Earth Mothers and goddesses—from Gaia and Ix Chel to Indra and Demeter—and women mystics from many cultures, Starr’s book helps us embrace healing and care for the Earth and for ourselves. From the publisher: “Wild Mercy provides a much-needed alternative to the models of religion and spirituality that have dominated history. Here, Mirabai invites you to welcome the wisdom of women back into the collective field where it may transform the human family, heal the ravaged Earth, and awaken the divine love in our hearts.” Find it on Bookshop.

Coatlicue Girl

Gris Muñoz | Flowersong Books, 2020

Coatlicue Girl is a bilingual collection of poems and short stories from celebrated frontera writer Gris Muñoz. Poignant and vivid—and hitting on themes from spirituality to cultural identity—the collection reflects the rhythm and textures of her experience as a woman, daughter, mother, and mystic. In the foreword, author Luis Alberto Urrea describes Gris as “a rock and roll curandera with a syncretistic religious heart. Tossing off chains as she goes.” Look forward to work by Gris Muños in a future issue of Ofrenda. Find it on Bookshop.

Feathered Serpent / Dark Heart of Sky: Myths of Mexico

David Bowles | Cinco Puntos Press, 2018

In Feathered Serpent / Dark Heart of Sky, David Bowles takes remnants from pre-Columbian codices and oral histories and weaves them into a cohesive epic that tells the origin story of Mexico, from “its beginnings in the dreams of the dual god, Ometeotl, to the arrival of the Spanish.” Bowles explains in his introduction that he grew up fascinated by myths, legends, and epics like the Iliad and the Odyssey; however, despite growing up on the border, he wasn’t exposed to any similar stories from or about his own Mexican culture until he began studying them in college. This book is his effort to fill in that gap and help us reconnect with these stories. Find it on Bookshop.

The Practice of Intention

1

If possible, play music that inspires you to be calm. This is the time to look inward. Turn off any external distractions; silence your phone.

2

Close your eyes, taking a moment to “feel” how different and peaceful it is to have the eyes closed.

3

Take three very slow and deep breaths, trying to fill out the bottom of your lungs. Inhale and exhale slowly.

4

With either hand, take a little bit of tobacco or some dry herbs—like lavender, sage, rosemary, basil, rose petals, a combination of all of them, or imagine them, if you don’t have any. In the Curanderismo tradition, it is believed that these plants have energy that can help us communicate more deeply with the spirit realm, and focus with concentration and a sense of calm.

5

Place your hand with the herbs at the center of your chest. That is the area known as the heart chakra. Take another deep and slow breath.

6

Very slowly, start directing your attention to one or more of the emotions mentioned before: love, gratitude, happiness, and peace.

7

Then, also very slowly, start your prayer, being careful that you genuinely mean what you are saying. If you are reciting a prayer in another language, make sure you say it first in your native language and then in the other language.

8

At the end of each sentence from your prayer, add a vibration of any of the emotions. Once you feel the emotions, move them throughout your body until it is vibrating. This is a very important step because this vibration is creating electromagnetic energy that will help you manifest what you are asking for.

9

Carry on with your prayer until you are done. Remember not to rush. By the end, your body should be vibrating, and from there you are going to send gratitude to the Universe, to the spirits, to your ancestors, to everyone for hearing your prayer and making it happen.

10

If you are conducting a ceremony or ritual, empowering a place or a spiritual tool, asking for healing, or something similar, you can cup your hands and transfer all of these beautiful energies into your hands and into the mixture of herbs. Then you can offer these herbs by placing them on your altar (if you have one), placing your hands on the part of the body that you want to heal, or offering the herbs to Mother Earth.

11

Finish by staying still for a moment, just feeling this beautiful energy that you have created.
