You may Kiss the Bride

There is nothing that excites a woman more than a wedding!

Once the moment of the engagement is passed, there is a flurry to find The Dress. This is dress is so important because it is The Dress in which the first kiss will be experienced. The next important business to attend to is the venue and the decor. How can you experience the most important moment of one’s life in drab surroundings? Then it is important to incorporate those people who have meaning in our lives and will wish us well in the future. And so goes the frenzy of the wedding preparations.

What makes a wedding such an important event? Why all the festivities? Why all the pageantry? Why do little girls dream of their wedding day from a very young age? This is not a new phenomenon. Even in antiquity, a wedding was a huge event that could last up to a week. The whole point of the wedding is The Kiss.

The Wedding that is culminated by The Kiss

is a mystical event

that occurs along the spiritual journey

of inner transformation.

The Wedding was used by the female ancient Greek and Roman mystery cults as the initial entry ceremony. The adherent, dressed in white, played the part of the goddess or bride and was “married” to the male godhead. The ceremony was complete when the new initiate received The Kiss of God.

Michelangelo also incorporated the idea that the woman’s journey involved marriage to God when he painted the Sistine chapel. While Adam’s journey requires that he must reach up to God, Eve is placed on God’s left side. This placement illustrates that the woman was the wife of the man in question, in this case God the Father.

There is an energetic explanation for the long-lived tradition of the wedding ceremony. The most common way to traverse the chakras is for the Divine Power of Passion or Kundalini to rise up from the base to the crown. This path, as symbolized by the reaching Adam, is known by many names such as: The Way of Passion; The Warrior’s Path; or The Hero’s Journey. Those who need to eliminate ego and incorporate compassion follow this path.

The Way of Grace or Virgin’s Path, as symbolized by the wifely placement of Eve on God’s left, traverses the chakras from the crown to the base using the Divine Power of Grace or Light. The Wedding is a ceremony that opens the crown chakra so that the Divine Power of Grace can begin to cleanse the inner sanctum. When the Divine Power of Grace reaches the throat chakra, there is the real physical sensation around the area of the mouth.

It feels like you are actually being kissed!

Maybe the fairytales have a little more substance than was previously thought. Both, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty were (spiritually) awakened by a kiss. Those who have experienced this mystical event are changed forever in ways that can only be explained in the context of mystical metaphor.

The Wedding followed by The Kiss is an awakening and the first step along the spiritual journey referred to as: The Way of Grace; The Virgin’s Path; The Grail Path. The Way of Grace is a spiritual journey that brings wholeness or Holiness to those who possess an emotional or creative personality.

  2. Oh, I loved this. Also in the myth of Eros and Psyche, Psyche is awakened by Eros’ kiss.
