How to Access the Divine Feminine
If the divine feminine is rising, what does it look like, feel like? I’m a female. What am I supposed to do?
Stop seeing yourself as men have defined feminine
I’m 85 now. When I was a young girl, all we were supposed to do was to get married and raise children. No one said that at 40 you’d be divorced with four children to raise by yourself and no work experience. No one said, until the Women’s Movement, that you had a choice.
Women began to look at their options.
In the 2016 US election, many older women didn’t vote for the female candidate because they didn’t think a woman could do the job! That’s because they had never seen themselves as being in broader service in their world. That’s changing with each younger generation.
How you see yourself determines what you allow yourself to do
The first step in embracing the emerging feminine power is to look closely at how you see yourself as female and get rid of all the beliefs and programming that have been placed there by society.
Then, rather than notice how many women are not in positions of power, identify the ones that are and study their path. Study their methods. You don’t have to do it the way they did, and you can certainly learn from them, but they’re presenting a version of how to move into power. You can study and adjust it as you take your own upward journey.
Encourage the women around you
Be encouraging to other women. It may be a co-worker, a friend or your own daughter. It may be an uncertain older woman who needs to push forward a bit. Or it may be you, you who does not think highly enough of yourself to know that you deserve that raise, that equal pay, that promotion, that higher position. Encourage others and accept encouragement for yourself.
What is the Divine Feminine that’s coming into power?
As I watch the old white men in our government posture and strut in the manner of old (I get to say that because that is my age group), I know that there are women everywhere who are adjusting, compromising, realizing, creating new paths that are more compassionate and inclusive.
And no, not everyone will like it. Change is not always welcome. But women have the ability to be more inclusive, to create the highest good for the broadest number.
Because we care.
And we are flexible.
And we are creative.
To be all those things we have to be willing to explore, to experiment, and to evaluate. And look for the middle ground, the greatest good for the most people.
Become a feminine explorer
An explorer questions everything. She questions the most fundamental things, like the protection of her food source, the consequences of conscious care of the environment and her part in the well-being of our earth home. And she takes major steps to make certain overall physical well-being is attained.
Then, the feminine explorer looks around at what needs adjusting, what needs fixing, and she looks for the one or two things that will affect the greater whole in the most impactful manner.
She does that.
A good explorer recognizes and understands the overall purpose
Not everyone’s purpose is the same. We are at different levels of survival and that will affect our focus. If I need food, that comes before any other good deed I might wish to do.
Find the overarching purpose, the best, more impactful purpose and begin there.
Saving the environment would be one. Helping women fulfill their potential is another. Teaching the world to live in peace yet another.
Find a new way to get things done
Just as technology is challenging everything we know how to do, so we, as women challenging our feminine awareness, must find new ways to express ourselves, to get things done. That means we must question everything!! Never do something one way because that’s the way it’s always been done. Question and evaluate and become innovative in everything you do.
Think about this. A future where the ocean rose because of global warming, the coastlines disappeared, technology disappeared, nothing permanent could be built because there was no way to get metal…you get the picture. Take it all away and start at the survival level. The hunter-gatherer level. Where would your stat?
Food and shelter.
I don’t know the numbers, but how are we doing on creating enough food for the world’s population? We know global warming is real. What do we need to change in our thinking about housing? And consumption? And the size of our families? And…
Question everything. Look at it from a survivor’s viewpoint and lighten your footprint on the planet. Then help others lighten theirs.
Create a woman’s world rather than compete in a man’s world
I have no idea what a woman’s world would look like, but I do know that even women entrepreneurs are trying to do business the way men entrepreneurs are doing it. I don’t know what needs to be improved or changed, but I bet if we, as women, stopped to approach our business from the core of our femininity, it would look different.
That means we still need to adjust to what already exists. It means that we get to question every step and explore and experiment to see if we can find a better or a different way.
I thought I was going to write about the qualities of being feminine. But I see that I’ve written about questioning our personal beliefs about what it means to be feminine – what we can and cannot do, what we are capable of and where we realistically need the skills and physical strength that men bring.
This is not about exclusion. It’s about empowerment. Empowering yourself to believe in yourself, to make up your own rules and standards and live by them.
It’s a bit scary if you’ve never done that before, but there’s no time like the present to try.
Do not listen to what the men around you tell you that you are or even the way they show you how they see you. We have not even begun to know what we’re capable of. And we won’t know until we try and support each other and learn from each other as we walk this new path together.
As leaders who re-structure for the highest good of all.
Encourage the feminine within us to shine our light upon the path of others as we walk beside each other in service.
