The Divine Feminine is an aspect of ourselves that is calling for recognition, re-integration and resurrection. It´s the intuitive, creative and divine part of ourselves that in an patriarchally shaped society has been pushed aside, ignored and limited in her expression for centuries. It´s part of our nature, which we most feel when we are in nature, and less when we are in the cities, where the mind, logic and noise are paramount. But what exactly is the Divine Feminine?
When I speak about the Divine Feminine, I´m not only referring to a concept of being more feminine, soft, intuitive and nurturing, but also to the Divine guidance as part of the Divine Feminine. It´s about the art of allowing, receiving and being in flow. There is literally a Divine Spirit awakening all around the globe, reminding men and women alike to soften, to listen within, to follow the flow and to let go of the struggle. To be human after all, but especially to human to ourselves. Accepting, loving and compassionate. Letting things be as they are and letting ourselves be as we are.
What is the Divine Feminine?
Most of the time people wonder: What does that exactly mean? Being as I am? Am I not doing that?
Well, most of the time not. Because being as you are is rather an un-doing than a doing. It´s a being not this not that, stopping to do this and that, to be accepted. Simply being. Accepting the moment, with its pain, its hurt, its limitation, but also its joy, exhilaration and grandeur. Accepting faults and shadows in oneself and then compassionately accepting them in others. Being in flow with everything that is without trying to control it, to change it, to fix it or to modify it. Simply being. Which does not mean, doing nothing. But rather it means being so connected to our inner world that the doing happens spontaneously, intuitively, joyfully.
What She is not
It´s a reminder of what enlightenment is: Being oneself, without judgement, without criticism, without hatred. It´s a reminder of letting go of fear, anxiety, shame, guilt, playing small, jealousy, people pleasing and not stepping into your greatness. It is also a reminder of not being pushy, manipulative through words, actions and thoughts and creating distractions for oneself and others through hyper-consumerism and the like. It´s a reminder of the magic that happens on the other side of all plans, logic and reason, and the greatness of the heart as an ocean of abundance. It´s a reminder of letting go and of simplicity. It´s a reminder of being YOU. You as in the Universe. You as the small inner child. You as the vulnerable courageous person that you are. You as the wildest dreams you have. You with all the flaws and imperfections, which make you just perfect. A perfect human BEing.
Doing the Work
The Divine Feminine, for the ones who hear the call, brings up a lot. A lot of light, a lot of ancestral remembering, a lot of shadows – individual and collectively, a lot of activations and a lot of indescribable occurrences. A lot of guidance, but for that we need to be open to hear the call.
