Aiyana- The Story of a Goddess for a New Era

The mystery of the divine feminine speaks to us from within her creation; she is not distant in heaven, but present within us. She is the divine, returning to remind us of the real wonder of what it means to be alive. We have forgotten her, just as we have forgotten so much of what is sacred, and yet she is always a part of us. Today more than ever, she needs to be celebrated, not just as a myth, but a spiritual image, something that belongs to our blood and breath.
~Jean Harper- Founder, Moxy Women & Creator of Heartbeat- Where the Great Mystery Begins

Introducing- Aiyana, the goddess of earthly light- Performer, Rossana Spallino
My name is Aiyana, it means eternal flower and I represent the goddess in each and every one of you. Some believe that a goddess is a supernatural being, but like you, I cry, I feel pain, I laugh, and I rejoice at the rising and setting of the sun.  I am believed to be directly linked to one of the seven daughters of Eve.  I am of Native American legacy and the first to call America my home.  My story will best be told and expressed through dance and music and I hope you will join me on my opening night this June.

I am thought to be a fictional goddess, created by a woman who wants to do her part to produce a peaceful, egalitarian and an aesthetically beautiful world.  Is this true or am I one that was created by the blessings of light that have been cast out into the Universe by all of you on earth?  Was I created to be an entity for peace, a sower of love from hatred, a beacon of light in darkness?

The journey of my life is a story for all to hear and it begins with the sound of the heartbeat.  The heart is the center of our being and we must be open to the heart connection that we share with all people through love.  I close my eyes to see the world and the world is transformed from pain and ignorance to eternal joy and beauty.  Maybe I will dream forever, but with you my dreams will be the dawn of a new day.  My hope, out of the endless days and nights of eternity, is that we will never let go of what is real and possible for each and every being and that we will never be lost again. There is a place for you and for me and today we are needed for change to occur.

On my path to enlightenment we will journey through the past, experience pain, sorrow, awakening, and ultimately joy. Goddesses from all cultures will awaken as I have called on them with the help of light workers and messengers alike to be my guides. There is no one goddess who will lead me on my journey, as those who linger in time and space will come forward now as they are called upon for their symbols of wisdom.

As a young and newly transformed goddess I wish to awaken everyone on this earthbound journey to cherish and celebrate life. I ask you to observe my epiphany and magical metamorphosis and learn the reasons for our existence, to love, cherish, direct, empower, and support one another. We are all connected as humans, animals, plants, water, and “Mother” earth.  In the words of a friend, who you will meet on my journey,  “Mother Earth is pleading for us to stop her bleeding, to leave behind our greed, begin to plant new seeds, the time has come.”  I echo her words and agree, yes, the time has come!
