A Nine-Day Devotional Novena for Women
to Divine Mother, Undoer of Knots


Retablo - Lynn Garlick, artist

A Novena is a nine-day spiritual practice of your choice that you do on your own, to ask Divine Mother, Undoer of Knots for help for yourself, your beloveds, or anything that is of concern to you. Your practice can be mantra, prayer, two-pointing, meditation, writing, walking, or any other means of devotion that you like. I have done Novenas countless times alone and with other women, and it is always prolific. The energetic feels exponentially stronger when a group of women do this in tandem for the same nine days. 

NOTE: Mary Ma, Undoer of Knots Novena meetings on Zoom will not be happening for a while.


I was recently guided to take a break from this, and I have no idea why. Those of you doing the practice, please continue on your own and I encourage you to start your own circles and sharing with others, if you haven’t already.


This Mother Mary Ma is very potent and non-denominational. She’s one face and form of the Divine Mother who has many forms and specialties across cultures. She is one facet of our universal MA. We all have knots within and between, and this MA can help unravel them. The energy for this is very strong right now.
