Becoming a Devotee

After reading “About Us”, “Our Beliefs”, “Virtues”, “Holy Trinity” & “Seven Great Janae,” you may find yourself wishing to develop a relationship with Mother God / Dea (Day-ah). There are many different ways to honour and communicate with Dea.

Creating a Shrine

“Each devotee must worship Dea under the Living Stream image that speaks to their soul whether it be Mary, Anna, Kore, Sophia, Shekinah, Bridget, Isis, Tara, Quan Yin, Amaterasu, or the Hindu Goddesses. The Living Face of Dea which tugs at the heartstrings of a devotee is most often an image either of their ancestral or spiritual ‘blood’, so to speak.” ArchMadria Candra Sophia

Choose a picture, statue (or internet image for an e-shrine) of Dea and place on a shelf, table, chest of drawers, perhaps with a doily, piece of lace, handkerchief under Her. With 1, 3, 5 or 7 candles or electric lights. Offer Her small gifts, incense (if not allergic), flowers, symbolic jewelery, poems, paintings etc.

Informal

“Just talk to her the way you would think to talk to your own mother. Say good morning to Her when you wake up. vent about your frustrations to Her. Tell Her about that one thing that makes you upset. Randomly tell Her that you love Her. Tell Her what you are grateful for, or something that made you happy today, and say goodnight to Her etc etc. There is a time and a place for being formal, like during ritual, but She is also our Heavenly Mama and wants for us to talk to Her, and to run to Her whenever we are sad and lost and afraid, just like a a mother would.” https://praisestoaurora.tumblr.com/post/166149852895/how-do-i-form-a-daily-prayer-to-dea-is-it-like

“Since I’m not great at word prayers there’s a thing I’ve been trying which is just directing my attention to Dea and focusing on her. Or dedicating good sensations to her like autumn smells and the sight of conkers.” https://jules-morrison.tumblr.com/post/166150048688/how-do-i-form-a-daily-prayer-to-dea-is-it-like

Chants

Given our current hectic lifestyles, chanting the Name of Dea is the easiest path to follow. When we chant Dea’s Name it bestows maximum spiritual benefits. Any repeated thought or action forms an impression that if reinforced becomes a centre. The same principle is used to create the devotion centre through chanting.
