It is energetically and physically evident that the Divine Feminine has come roaring back to life in our world.
Women are gathering in ceremonial settings to sit together and heal these ancient wounds that lie deeply within us. I personally have dedicated my life and work to healing and transmuting these wounds within our world, and to the feminine rising. As a facilitator of women’s circles, I have witnessed first hand the immense potential of unearthing this trauma and transforming it into a sense of empowerment. It is an honor to be a part of the movement of women finding their voice and strength. Women are undoubtedly magical beings who pulsate with the heartbeat of creation.
However, there are many parts to the greater picture of all that is unfolding. Fueled by rage for the suffering and mistreatment of women for millennia, we as a society tend to damn the patriarchy and all things masculine. We blame all men for our pain, disregarding whether they are our perpetrators or not. However, the masculine that rules our planet is NOT that of the Divine Masculine. It is the manipulated masculine wearing a mask of torment and darkness.
We must realize that we are labeling our men as the manipulated masculine, that we are at times being blinded by our anger and pain. Yes, there are many men in this world who are responsible for severe mistreatment of women, but the reverse may also be true.
We cannot heal ourselves as women if we are putting down all men, blaming them all for the misconduct of some. This only further divides us, taking us further away from coming together as ONE.
We must see that both sides are suffering – and move, speak, and see from a compassionate heart. It is only through compassion that we can forgive and experience true, long lasting, and transformational healing. This kind of healing is felt worldwide and has a much larger impact, because it is fueled by the heart and love, the most powerful force in our Universe. Even the soul with the darkest of shadows is at the will of love and forgiveness.
We must look beyond the eyes of a victim, and see that we are ALL the threads that interweave into the tapestry of our planet, of our history. Perhaps some of the souls currently incarnated as men were once the women who were burned at the stake. Perhaps some of the souls incarnated as women were once the men who hunted the women. There is no “us” and “them”, we are all responsible for our past as a species, and it is time to move from being the victim to being the compassionate, understanding heart who moves beyond anger and takes peaceful action to make a change.
Humanity is suffering, and if we point our fingers at the opposite gender and blame them for our pain, then we are creating even deeper wounds for the collective.
The Divine Masculine was once a very foreign and confusing energy to me, unfamiliar with what the essence of this was. It wasn’t until I sat with men in a sweat lodge for the very first time that I had witnessed the Divine Masculine. He is brave, he is vulnerable, he is a protector, he is safe, he is strong, he is loving, and most of all, he emanates a need of being reconnected to the feminine.
This life changing experience enhanced the calling of my own masculinity, and helped me finally merge with this lost piece of myself. It is the Divine Masculine that gave me the strength to endure three days of fasting and prayer in the woods. It was the Divine Masculine that gave me the courage to say no when I felt that something wasn’t right. It was the Divine Masculine that protected me when backpacking alone in South America.
It is seen across many ancient texts that to be Whole, we must unite our polarities to ascend – Shiva and Shakti, Sun and Moon, Water and Fire, Yin and Yang. One cannot exist without the other, nor without harmony. Despite our gender, we are all made of both energies, and to transcend separation within and outside ourselves, there must be a union, a coming together of ONEness.
Before the times of the patriarchy, women did not overrule men, treating them as lesser. Men and women stood together, side by side, honoring each other’s strengths and wisdom. We must come back to those times, and stand side by side once again.
Brothers, I see you, and I invite you to join our women’s circles.
Sisters, I see you, and I invite you to open your hearts to the willing hearts of men who are here to cocreate the New Earth with us.
Remember why you came here. Remember your life is sacred. Remember that we are all pure light at our core, an expression of something beyond this human experience.
