The Goddess Rosary

The Goddess Rosary is an Esoteric Christian short rosary prayer. It could be called the Quaternity Rosary because it honors the four-person Godhead:  Father and Mother Creators and God-the-Son and Holy Daughter.  It begins with THE LADY'S PRAYER (or the "OUR LADY")

The Our Lady can be said while fingering the big beads on the Rosary. You can alternate and say the regular Lord's prayer every other time for balance. Use the Glory Be (shown further below) for the wire/string before the large beads, and then finger the large bead and say:

Our Lady who is the Essence of the Earth
We have called you by many names*
Return now unto Your People
Speak Your Will, and it shall be done
As Above, so Below.
Please give us each moment: our life, light & love.
If we have let you down,
Please forgive us and cleanse us,
According to our own willingness to forgive others.
Lead us away from Lures
And deliver us from Evil
For You are Goddess, Queen of the Universe,
Yours is the Power, the Grace, the Wisdom & the Beauty
Age unto Ages


*Here you have the option of inserting a mini-litany of your favorite Goddess names, such as: Asherah, Maria, Miryam, Isis, Diana, Shakti, Tara, Brigita, Venus, Sophia, Demeter, Freya, Gaia, Tiamat, Rhea, Oshun, Quan-Yin......

More on the Rosary & 4-Part Godhead

The Rosary, a string of special prayer-spell beads, was originally made of mashed up rose petals. The aroma would waft up as you fingered the beads which were always black because they were made of rose petal paste. You can make your own Rosary beads, recipes are out there, or you can use readymade beads.  Catholic bookstores have lots of rosaries.  I found cute little plastic ones that glow in the dark for my kids, and even one with very large kindergarten colored wooden beads for toddlers.  I prefer the "Risen Christ" rosaries better than the standard ones with the Crucifix (Jesus dead on the cross). It seems more beneficial to dwell on the positive outcome of the Easter story, not the death and dying part. Both kinds can be found at Catholic shops. For a very affordable custom made Goddess Rosary or Angel Rosary -- or whatever style rosary you want -- visit our friend and fellow Mystery School initiate's website Tell Anne that Katia sent you. I have the most lovely rosaries made by her including an exquisite angel rosary with rose quartz beads.

Now to continue with our Mystery School's unique creation, the Quaternity Rosary prayer.  We threw in some Kabbalistic Tetragrammaton stuff and made specific references to the Goddess and the Daughter, both of whom are part of the four-person Godhead.  Many scholars and even clergy agree that the Divine Mother and Daughter aspects are the Holy Spirit part of the traditional Trinity.  The word for Holy Spirit in Hebrew was Ruach, a feminine noun. Then in the original Greek of the New Testament it became Pneuma, a neuter noun.  Finally in the Latin of Roman bibles the term became Spiritus Sanctus, an all masculine term for the Holy Spirit.  Thus the third person of the Trinity evolved backwards from female to male by the mainstream Church.


Y H V H    (Tetragrammaton)

This Rosary prayer, and indeed our whole Esoteric Christian belief system, is based on the Quaternity (as opposed to Trinity). As its name implies it has four persons: 

         Y - God-the-Father

                     H - Goddess-the-Mother

V - Son of God

      H - Holy Daughter

This Godhead, the Quaternity, is expressed by the Y H V H name of the Divine, which is where we get mispronunciations such as Yahweh and Jehovah. The Y H V H is called the Tetragrammaton, which in Greek simply means "four-lettered Name."  For a scholarly (and Kabbalistic) explanation of how the four-part Godhead came to be, read this article, Shem ha-Mephoresch.  You have to scroll down a bit to find the portion that explains the YHVH deities.

Kabbalists and both modern and ancient Jews say that the Y H V H name cannot and should not be pronounced, it is the magikal Ineffable Name. They refer to the Name as HaShem, which means, literally "the Name."  When a modern Jew writes the English word, God, they always spell it: G-d  with a dash in the middle, out of respect. Many of the ancients (and some moderns) dedicated their entire lives to figuring out the "true" pronunciation of YHVH, the Ineffable name. Modern Jews are taught in their schools that Jesus Christ obtained magikal and healing powers by learning the 72 magikal names of G-d, all forms of YHVH, and had them tattooed onto his arm.  Jews, of course, do not believe Jesus was divine.  Tattoos are anathema to Jews to this day, because getting magikal names tattooed on your arm was considered unholy and a form of sorcery "cheating."  Most Esoteric Kristians also tend to shy away from tattoos.  But we don't believe Yeshua had any tattoos either!  He got his magikal powers from his direct-connect with the Godhead. Indeed, he was a channel for the third person of the Quaternity, the Vahv, the Sacred Son.

There is a way that the mystic or serious seeker after god/dess can "hear" the original pure sound of YHVH's name. The still small voice in your head may "whisper" the true pronounciation to you if you practice a certain special but very simple breathing exercise using the four letters. "Hearing" the name using this method takes awhile, maybe months, and you must be sincere. Sometimes a mantra of "reveal thyself, reveal thyself, reveal thyself," over and over again convinces the Divine of your sincerity, shows Them that you really long for Them, and desire only Them.  We teach this easy but ancient mantra exercise in our Esoteric Mystery School email lessons. And our Order of Melchizedek, the Priest(ess)hood of YHVH, devotes their work and service to the Quaternity. If this resonates with you, you may wish to join the Order of Melchizedek, High Priest of El Elyon (Most High One). In the Hebrew Bible, El Elyon was also known as Yahweh, YHVH.  But now we know the term didn't just refer to a male Creator God, but to a Quaternity of deities, an older generation joined in sacred union who are periodically renewed, rejuvenated and redeemed by a younger generation "pair" of deities.  It is one of the mysteries of Esoteric Christianity how these God-pairs "replace" each other while also generating each other.

YHVH led to the term Jehovah / Yehovah which should really be rendered Yah-Havah.  Another "secret" to the name YHVH is that the Y stands for Yah, a name of God-the-Father, and the HVH spells out Havah, which is Hebrew for Eve, meaning "Mother of all Life". So the Tetragrammaton (YHVH "four-lettered name of God") is a name meaning God and Goddess. The other name of God used in the book of Genesis (and throughout the whole Old Testament) is Elohim, which is a masculine-feminine combination name, also. It is a combo of the names El (God the Father) and Eloah (God-the-Mother). A feminine word with a masculine plural ending, Elohim means, "the Gods" or more specifically, God and Goddess. Both words for God in the Old Testament, Elohim and YHVH or "Yah-Havah", are male-female combo names. Yah-Havah is the true way Jehovah should have been written out. It means Yah, the God of the Abraham, and Havah the Goddess. Eve, the First Woman (Womb-man), was named after that Goddess, or else she was a manifestation of Her! Eve, who got such a bad rap, was probably an incarnation of Havah, the Goddess of Life. Havah is the Hebrew way of saying Eve and Hebrew girls are named Havah even today.  It is sometimes spelled Chavah.  Havah evolved to Ava in Latin, and then Eva, and finally Eve in English.


The Glory Be
(also called Y H V H Prayer-Song)
By Katia Romanoff

This can be prayed on a rosary or prayer rope.  The Glory Be is to be said when you finger the wire/string that comes right before the large single beads. Those large beads, by the way, are called Pater Noster beads, meaning Our Father, because the regular Rosary has you say the Lord's Prayer, also called the Our Father, while fingering them. (On some Rosaries the single beads are not made larger, so you just know them because they're single---set apart from----the groups of ten little beads, called decades.)

On wire before large single beads:
Say one Glory Be as follows:

Glory Be to the Father, to the Mother,
And to the Sacred Son,
And to the Lady Holy Spirit
They are the Four-in-One

As it was in the Beginning
Is Now and ever Shall Be
World without End
Age to Ages, say Amen

(Try singing the above two stanzas in your head to the tune of that old hippy song, "What's your Name? Who's your Daddy? Is he rich, is he rich like me?" It sounds nifty, and these two stanzas can be used as a Mantra by itself, without the rest of the Rosary.)

What's Your Name? /becomes:/ Glory Be...
Who's your Daddy? / To the Father, To the Mother
Is he rich? / And to...
Is he rich like me? / The Sacred Son
Has he taken..? / And to the Lady
Any time.... / Holy Spirit
To show / They are
To show you what it means.... / the Four in One (or Tetra--Gramma--Ton,
Together they make One)

Then the rock song goes up an octave or so, and you say the second half of the Glory Be, to "Tell it to me softly, wonder why? I'd really like to kno---ow....It's the time and the Season for loooov----ving..."

...Enter 60's keyboarding.  Hah!  I know you guys think I've lost it now!  Hey that's a nice haunting mysterious kind of melody, and if anyone is musically inclined and wants to sing it and record it in a file somehow, we will insert it right here in the website, so there.  

This is an admittedly whimsical "technique." If you get the tune (and hopefully the "revised" words) stuck in your head, it is a good thing.  We get so many junky things stuck in a rut in our heads, playing over and over. Why not leash this repetitive (obsessive!) power of the brain and make it repeat something spiritually enriching.  That brings to mind another technique you can make part of your repertoire.  Whenever a song gets stuck in your mind, change its words to a favorite mantra, affirmation, or prayer-spell. Then it becomes a prayer-song, or song-spell.  You can actually program your life like a computer in this way.  If it's hard to make a song merge with your prayer or mantra, simplify your prayer until you are only saying a few key words---just two or three words if you must---over and over.  If I get stuck in such an internal rut I start chanting, "Yahd. Heh. Vahv. Heh" (the Hebrew letters Y H V H) to whatever tune is taking over my mind.

The second part of the Glory Be verse doesn't precisely fit with the old rock song so you change the words like this:

Tell it to me softly / As it was in the beginning
Wonder Why? / It is now
I'd really like to kno---ow / Is now and ever shall be
It's the time / Without end
Of the Season / Age to Ages

for loving / say A - men

Then you move onto the large bead, the Our Father/Pater Noster beads. Each time you come to a large bead you can say your favorite version of the Lord's Prayer, or one of the Goddess versions, "The Lady's Prayer" as given above.  Take heart! There is no music part for the Lord's Prayer beads! But if anyone can think of a song it might go to, please let me know... <sly grin>

Hail Mary  
adapted by Linda Seekins

Hail Mary Magdalene, the Lord has wed thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb and Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of Kings,
give aid to us seekers now and in the hour of our need.

Hail Mary
by Darlene Kenney

Hail Mary, full of grace
The dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven,
You are the white moon among the stars
And the desire of human hearts.
You are the mystery that if that which I seek
I find not within, I will never find it without.
For You were here at the beginning
And You are that which is attained at the end of

There are many variations on the adorations; feel free to experiment--that's what it is all about! The important thing, I think, is actually feeling the literal power of the morning sun/eastern heavens while engaging the Christ-spirit through the Divine Names. I personally love the dawning hours and this adoration helps me to connect with it even more.

{--for engaging the names of power, enhancing the subtle bodies, helping to align the phenomenal will with Cosmic Will, etc.--and with apologies to Aleister Crowley . . .}

Face the Eastern sky, gaze at the rising sun/light. At the precise minute of sunrise, grasp the rainbow wand (if you have one) in your left hand by the moon's astrological placement for the day. With a graceful movement, extend the arms upward and a little outward above your head, saying enthusiastically, "In the name of the Mother-Father, the Sun (=Son), and the Holy Spirit!!" (Feel the key words as they correspond to the body, i.e., "Mother- Father" = head and shoulders, "Sun"/Son = chest to thighs, and "Holy Spirit" = knees to feet.) Then, take the rainbow wand in the right hand by the moon's astrological placement and vibrate the Lord's Prayer in the kabbalistic manner.

Set the rainbow wand aside and now raise up your arms
to the eastern sky, intoning,

from the abodes of night
in the dawning of the sun
as you traveled the starry night
as you travel across the wondrous sky

with your Light

Let the good sun
rise upon us

JESUS, sun god
light god,
our eastern star:





fill us all with your
Love this day

fill us all with your
Understanding this day

A M E N!

Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue

Lovely Lady dressed in blue-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
Tell me what to say!

Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
Mother does to me?

Did you hold His hand at night?
Did you ever try
Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?

Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things-
Little things that happen? And
Do the Angels' wings

Make a noise? And can He hear
Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
Tell me- for you know.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
And you know The Way.

A Prayer from a Catholic Prayer Card

My Queen, my Mother,
I give myself entirely to Thee,
and to show my devotion to Thee,
I consecrate to You this day
my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart,
my whole body without reserve.
Wherefore good Mother,
as I am Thine own,
Keep me and guard me
as Your property and possession.

The Chorus of "Hail Mary, Gentle Woman,"
a Catholic hymn written by Carey Landry

Gentle woman, quiet light
Morning star, shining bright
Gentle Mother, peaceful dove
Teach us wisdom, teach us love
