Ixchel (pronounced EE-Shell or ISH-Chell) has been revered since ancient times as the Mayan Moon Goddess and Medicine Woman. As an embodiment of the moon, Ixchel is intimately connected to the tides of water and controlling rain. She is also called Lady Rainbow, as her essence is infused in water-droplet prisms that create rainbows. Ixchel is also a mother goddess that helps with fertility and childbirth. Finally she is a powerful healer and can connect you to your foundational roots as a spiritual healer.
Doreen Virtue writes the following message from Ixcel in Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards:
1. “Commanding power is not the same as demanding it. Demanding comes from a childlike place akin to a tantrum, based on fear that it might be withheld. Commanding is based upon the sure and steady knowledge that you are part of the Great Spirit’s grace and wisdom.
2. You’re a lightning rod that can conduct the power. Simply connect to the power through unyielding clarity of your thought processes. Don’t waver for a moment in your sure and steady decision to be a conduit of the power that already resides within you.
3. Connect to the even bigger source, and allow it to amplify your natural power In this way, you’re a steady connector of the Infinite, from the Infinite, and to the Infinite. In other words, it’s all Spirit: around you, through you, and to whomever you’re healing.”
