Danu made herself known to me years prior to her formal call on the day that my husband and I were legally handfasted in 2008. The High Priestess who officiated our ceremony placed a turquoise colored statue of Danu on the altar, but I was unfamiliar with the image and so I asked her about it. While she spoke to me, I felt a flickering within my psyche and knew that I would work with Danu sometime in the future, but I had taken a vow to serve Isis and my time with her
Through her teachings, Danu helped me find energetic balance within my life experience and encouraged me to accept abundance and prosperity when I encountered it. She taught me to accept the blessings given to me whether by the gods or through others that I interacted with in mundane life. She guided me on the continual journey of self-care and self-love both on the emotional and physical energetic levels of being. She showed me the way towards health and over-all well-being with the exposure to individuals and situations that highlighted examples of what I could become with work and effort; hinting at what the best version of self could look like to me. Danu was not only the source of inspiration for much of my writing, but she also inspired me to publish all that I had written during our time together; this brought me great personal satisfaction and feelings of fulfillment.
Danu supported me and guided me through my spiritual growth in these ways while continually sharing her wisdom through visions, journeys, and dreams. Though my time with Danu has come to its conclusion, the lessons she taught me have been gifts that allowed me tremendous personal spiritual growth. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to work with such a divine creatrix.
Oh Danu, I invoke thee, Great Mother Goddess,
By the great mysteries,
By the mighty powers of the air, earth, and seas.
I invoke thee, Danu. I invoke thee.
As you stand at the portal; to The Elemental Kingdoms,
Allow me to see with your eyes.
Creatrix who birthed all things into being,
Bring forth to me the key to your wisdom and knowledge.
Enlighten me with the secrets of life everlasting.
I destroy my ego.
I release all fear.
I open my heart to your presence.
I feel your presence within me.
Your love within my heart,
Your wisdom within my mind.
Oh Great Mother Danu!
I am a humble student of your mysteries.
