TESTIMONIA

 

Hello dear ones!  Welcome to the testimonial cave at Moonspell.  Over the years many folks have benefited from Shekhinah's gifts, and shared their appreciation.  Shekhinah hasn't been very good at filing their words, so I'm helping to dig them up and post them... LOL  Somebody's got to be more businesslike around here!  Anyway, if you want to verify, read on...


"Shekhinah's is the note that's played when the 
transcendence is ready..."

"The Bob Dylan of the women's spirituality movement."
Kris Aaron, former reviewer for Circle Network News

 "I must tell you, I learned more from Ariadne's Thread than any
 other book I've read so far (and I've been studying for almost 8 years)."

From one student in our online Study Circle to another:

"Welcome...! You have made a very good decision to
join this circle... I feel it is a true "deepening"
circle... not another course "level" but more like (an
unusually good) postgrad seminar. Shekhinah is the
source of so many ideas that have percolated into
other schools, including WMS.*  Remember the level I
moon charts? Look at the Moonwheel materials here.
This is the Motherlode :-)

Blessings,
Ariadne Pythia

*White Moon, another online Goddess school.

"I know a wonderful performer I'd like to recommend...She's a Lesbian
Witch who's sung and played...her own original songs.  Shekhinah has
wonderful energy for performance.  She has a great website, Moonspell...
Shekhinah is creative, brave, and though I've studied "Herstory" for 35
years, I learn much from her emails...  I think she'd be an outstanding
addition -- a real, politically aware woman and energizing artist!  She's
performed in the USA and Europe, and audiences love her inspiring songs
that cover a wide range of emotions.  I was trained mostly in classical
music...but Shekhinah, whose name refers to the "female side of God,"
is remarkable because she's largely self-taught.  She also has a striking
appearance, natural, unusual and captivating.  (Don't blush, now!  I could
have said lots more!  One of many sisters supporting you, Shekhinah!)"


From my beloved Little Flame:  "She loved and served the Goddess
when it was not cool or trendy or easy, she did it when it meant
she would be poor or alone or lose those close to her who did not
understand. She gave all she had to the Goddess, in perfect love
and trust, and the Goddess gave back to her abundantly. The Goddess
gave her a soul so full of music... She gave her
a heart that is true and loyal and honest. She gave her a devotion to
all her Sisters...gave her a vision of a world where the Divine Feminine
is cherished, and she never let go...  In Lady Shekhinah's example
and footsteps I too give all I have... to Her service wherever
She calls me..."

"... the Goddess has entered my life since I met you and especially since I read your book. It has been like one awakening after the next, and reading Ariadne’s Thread was one of the most influential, magical, liberating, enriching experiences and journeys of my life. It was a delight, wonder, creativity, celebration and LIFE in a spiritual practice that is for, of, and through knowing the goddess."

"So much about it makes sense on so many deep levels, from psychic to
sensual. Even learning more about biology through a biologist lover of
mine-- i keep finding ample affirmation of the truth that the female
form is the first form in nature-- all species, all life forms share this.   There is simply no base theoretical support for patriarchy as a natural
order of anything. Another very significant contribution to my life 
from that book is the idea of trinities and triads and pentagons as
alternatives to squares and diads. What a revolution! And it is an
applicable antidote to so many stagnant, ancient, harmful quagmires of reasoning! yin-yang, masculine-feminine, light-dark (where is color?) --
the list goes on."

"I read a lot of books; I have a positively decadent library of 'witchy' tomes, but very few, if any, have moved me and excited me and motivated me and CHALLENGED me like yours. You are truly blessed... You have no idea how much that book meant to me."

"You wrote something in my reading that has been a great comfort to me many times over the last few months - "Any time you feel abandoned or lonely or scared, just close your eyes and breathe Her in!".  ...I just wanted you to know that, and ... I plan on seeking your insight again. ...Thank you for what you do and the spirit you do it in."

 "Many years ago... you performed a reading for me
at a bookstore in Santa Cruz...It was a quick reading...we drew a total of four cards...I was confused about the two men in my life at the time...one was my husband and one a dear friend. Your cards and your insight were so clear and amazing, i have never forgotten them...I drew the Storm for my husband (so incredibly accurate...) and for my dear friend    ...a card that depicted two people holding hands, flying through the sky near a rainbow. As fate would have it, my husband and I split very soon after and about 6 months after that my dear friend and I fell in love. It was very much because of your assistance that I believe my heart was open to this gift...and I will be marrying this amazing man in two months."


"I think Aria is a great reader. She is thoughtful as well as insightful. I always take delight with her tarot readings. I highly recommend her." 

(Aria is Shekhinah's tarot reader name at Astronet/Keen.  Go to
the TAROT cave to find out more...)


"Shekhinah is an amazing tarot reader. She has been doing readings
for me for years, and is fast, accurate, and has an unbelievable gift
at interpreting the tarot. She is warm, friendly, brilliant, funny, and
always honest, even if she has something to tell you that is not
necessarily what you want to hear. However, she will turn around any
situation for you and show you helping cards to get through your
difficulties. This always results in a positive reading no matter what the
cards show about a particular situation. I have spoken with her so many
times. She has been a true gift in my life, and I would not be as strong
a person now had it not been for her. I URGE you to get a reading with Shekhinah. You will never be disappointed."


"I enjoyed your company thoroughly that evening (as well as everyone
else- what a lovely group!)  ...I feel...drawn to your circle, and I
would love to be invited back.  ...I have been looking for a group to
to exchange warm and yummy energy with, and I certainly felt at
home with you..."


"Dear psychic sister...thank you for your delightful sharings...It was
the right thing at the right time.  I feel more settled in the decision
to proceed..."


"Shekhinah, I have become such a better person for having known you and followed your course. I have become much more patient with myself as well as with others. I have learned to laugh at my foibles and accept them as part of me instead of needing always to be perfect. And, since I can do that, I can embrace the foibles of others. Ariadne's Thread and your gentle guidance have done that for me as well as teaching me much about the Craft and its mysteries. When I am in your company I am home - loved and respected. I am so glad you are my teacher and my sister in Goddess."


"Shekhinah Mountainwater is a beloved crone sister that has supported The
Sacred Circle with her creative talents, musical genius, and deep profound
wisdom for many years now. She graces our world with her love for the
Goddess, and her book, Ariadne's Thread, is a rare treasure that should
be sitting in every sister's library. Shekhinah's unique style of poetry and
priestessing, along with her ability to bring feminine Divination systems to
life in modern patriarchal times, has touched the lives of many of our
Sisters that are reclaiming the power of the Feminine Spirit to heal their
lives. She has deeply touched my heart & soul with her magick for as
long as I've known her, and I am very proud indeed to call her my
friend. ~ Blessed Be"  -Mama Silverwitch, founding mother of the Sacred Circle of Maidens, Mothers, and Crones.


"...I want to let you know that I have gratitude in
my heart for your work, and your wonderful book, Ariadne's Thread.
I honor you as a foremother of feminist spirituality, a midwife of the
Great Goddess' resurgence. Thank you thank you!  ...I tell women
about you in my Priestess training.  ...beloved foremother and
priestess and general, all-around untameable Witch!   Love, Vajra,
Woman Mysteries of the Ancient Future Sisterhood."

"Ariadne's Thread touched a sweet part of my soul and of femininity. 
From the moment I opened its pages I was transfixed and awed by the
poetic writing and spiritual channeling... It resonated things the world
seems to have been asleep to.  It is soft in its strength.  It is receiving
in its power.  It is for the warrior and the poet, the mother and the
child, the wife and the worker.  It assists in locating the Goddess that
lies deep within us and brings forth life to our creations.  Almost all of
the metaphysical books have come and gone in my life, but this one has
found a permanent spot in my library and will stay there forever. 
...from my heart to yours I thank you, sister."
