The Bliss Mistress Guide: Satisfying the Muse

by Edie Weinstein


The digits on the clock on my nightstand read 4:18 a.m. as my fingers do their tap dance on the well- worn keyboard of my lap top computer. My bleary eyes open and close, eyelids fluttering as the words pour forth. Good thing I learned many years ago, how to type without looking at the letters. Chalk that up to having been a journalist since 1988. I have been writing for Wisdom Magazine for (holy moly, Batman!) 13 years. In the interceding years, I have continued what I began back in 1988, when I launched Visions Magazine with my husband Michael, by interviewing movers and shakers in the transformational fields. Chatting with some of my favorite authors, artists, musicians, teachers, spiritual leaders and healers has been one of my greatest joys. When we sold the publication 6 months prior to his passing, in 1998, I joined the ranks of freelance journalists. Also a good thing that writing is my healthy addiction, which explains why I am mostly awake at this hour instead of immersed in dreamland. I could call it ‘dreaming while awake’.

I refer to the voice that inspires my work, as The Muse with whom I have a mad, passionate love affair. A few years ago, a well -known psychic told me, when I asked her about romance (who doesn’t inquire about that topic when having a reading?) “Your relationship will be with your Muse.” I pondered afterward whether she meant that the man with whom I would be involved would take on that role or if the creative force itself would become my lover. I am guessing she meant the latter. Frankly, I would appreciate both. The Muse who I cannot literally see, but can certainly hear and feel, awakens me at all hours, whispering in my ears, giving me goose-bumps, seducing me with come hither thoughts, asking me to be a soul revealing stripper. Helpless to resist, even with “Are you sure people really want to know my deepest, scary cave dwelling thoughts?” I am assured that is so. And so, I sometimes stand emotionally naked, heart racing with a combination of anticipation and trepidation, wondering what the response will be. Time and time again, as I dip into the well of my psyche’, I evoke knowing nods from those who can relate to my revelations if not the actual experience that led to them. That makes me bolder. Daring to bare more.

There are times when I am certain that The Muse has desires that demand satisfaction. In a recent article that I wrote for Elephant Journal, I likened it to an insistent lover that awakens me at all hours and ravishes me until we are both satiated. For now, I merge with the Inspirer who lusts after me as powerfully as I lust after it and drift off into peaceful sleep.
