Sisters this is your long awaited wake-up call
It is time now to emerge from the long winter of universal seclusion
The Great Central Sun has risen so now we can teach in our own style
That this life is no more than an elaborate illusion.
The centuries in retreat and hiding are over now
There will be no more wondering if it is right
For us to emerge making our myths and legends public
We have journeyed together, sisters, through the dark shadow of the night.
We have reached the end of the major stage of the journey
We have worked, toiled, laughed and sighed
We have walked together and independently along the way
And as some of our friends were lost to the cause we cried and cried.
Now the depth of darkness is transformed into our mutual friend
It is bringing love and bright white light
It is pushing urgently through our bodies into every hidden crevice
Opening us to the knowledge and understanding of our might.
We welcome with arms open wide the Brotherhood
We acknowledge joyfully our Holy Alliance
The male community with whom we have been associated on this road
Who sometimes has brought out our feelings of defiance.
But now a time for extraordinary celebration is here
In the Garden of Eden, where Atlantis has risen
Flowers adorn every available open space
And now in every living thing there is no schism.
Suddenly three Phoenix fly across the sky as we watch
The five Russian dolls stand here too in their appointed place
The new archetypes are positive, extraordinary, illuminated and strong
They are reflected in the starry brilliance of each watching face.
We thank the Goddess, the Angelic Beings, the devas and the sprites
Who have helped us on our quest
They have carried us through the depth of the mire
Even when we cried out – ‘Please let us rest.’
They have whispered words of wisdom, support and guidance
Whenever we have faltered or seemed frail
They have never been critical or abrupt
Even when we asked ‘May we leave this trail?’
Our collective call to move forward is accompanied by music
Music from our soul, our essence and our own heart
It is time for acceptance by this world and all the others
Emerge from hiding now my sisters. Let us make this brand new start!
