Whether born as man or woman we all have both attributes of the feminine and masculine within. But if you were born as female you embody naturally more of the attributes of the feminine. Within life and the universe divine feminine energy represents some of the attributes such as: restoration, life, renewal, creation, birth, healing, receptivity, openness, motherhood, nurturing, love, understanding, compassion, insight, intuition, wisdom, forgiveness, the moon, connection, harmony and sensuality.
You may notice that you are more in touch with some aspects of your divine feminine nature and less in touch with others.
In today’s modern competitive world the nature of the economy and productivity, the means of being successful and the notion of carrier and equality with the male counterpart has resulted in a disconnect with some of these attributes in women who either by choice or by default have fallen into the life of a provider, bread winner and carrier oriented. For example we may have learned to suppress a soft compassionate exterior and outlook in our daily interactions in order to cope with the competitive work place where the masculine is the driving force and energy. Another example could be; you may be fully in touch with your own sensuality but not in touch with motherhood which means nurturing and unconditional inclusion of the other that you consider as a part of yourself.
So to reconnect and cultivate these aspects of the divine feminine, we each must find and discover a unique expression of these traits as it serves our lives and personalities so we can find the qualities of softness, nurturing and inclusiveness which will empower the feminine divine in its totality.
It is also important to our sense of wellbeing and health, to allow the space in our lives, for these inherent qualities to flourish. Our femininity and its expression for each individual is a unique manifestation of the divine feminine and as such it is not about conforming to an archetypal idea of what divine feminine is or isn’t. It is about letting go of things that disallow our own unique feminine essence from emanating the radiant divine essence through us.
So let not our lives be either about resisting what we perceive as traditional ideas of what it is to be female or about adhering dogmatically to these traditions. We usually fall into this trap either by rebelling against the traditional expectations of family, culture or society or by embracing these expectations when they are not in alignment with our unique feminine nature and what we are actually in agreement with.>
So on Mother’s day let us embrace and celebrate the divine feminine and its attributes. Whether born as female or male let this day be about radiating the softer, more compassionate, more intuitive and more inclusive qualities of the feminine. As god only knows how the world and the planet needs and requires these qualities cultivated and flourished if we are to sustain and restore life, balance and wellbeing in each individual and also the life of the planet itself.
