Exploring the Divine Feminine

The Divine Feminine is an integral part of our universe and exists within everyone, regardless of gender. You do need not to be female or identify with the feminine in order to work with this energy. In fact, this energy must exist and work with the Divine Masculine energy in order to create balance and harmony in our world. Like Yin and Yang where one has a little bit of the other and one cannot exist without the other, this is the same with the divine feminine and masculine energies.

What is Divine Feminine Energy?

The Divine Feminine is a sacred universal energy. She expresses the full spectrum of all that is the feminine principle, in its highest and most sacred forms. She is Mother Earth, the feminine counterpart and equal life-giver to the Divine Masculine (who sustains her). She is the creative force that brings life into existence. She sees life as sacred and is intuitive, collaborative, graceful, nurturing, healing and has unconditional love. She opens you up to the multi-dimensional and spiritual world and has an internal radiance that is evident to all. Her energy is key to bringing our planet back to balance and harmony.

She is:

  • Sacred, sensual, healing, mysterious, accepting, empathetic
  • Balances with masculine energy creates harmony
  • Receptivity, presence, loving kindness, self love, nurturing
  • Inspiring, sacred, empowering, honored and respected, connected to Mother Earth and the Moon
  • Openness, vulnerability, humility, adaptability, curiosity
  • Opens you to multi-dimensional and sensory world
  • Connects you to intuition, creativity, introspection, patience, compassion, flexibility, gentleness, wisdom, community focused
  • Healing, grace, collaboration and unconditional love

This sacred energy is the key in connecting to your spirituality and discovering your own Divinity.

This feminine energy is rising now on the planet, coming to the forefront and moving back to her rightful side beside the divine masculine. She is not rising to overtake or dominate the masculine, but to equalize, simply rising up from being suppressed, buried and forgotten for all these years. She is rising to take her place as his equal, working with, respecting and honoring the energies within both divine energies.

The Divine Feminine is ever present now because we need to reconnect to the Earth and to ourselves. Healing, loving and appreciating our planet, nurturing our relationships with both the planet and us. Recognizing the beauty and magnificence within all of us, so that we can not only heal, but fully awaken and grow, shifting and transforming the energy of our world to one that truly exists without fear and is in peace and harmony with everything. It may sound woo-woo but it is the heart of where we can go as a human race.

It All Happens for a Reason

I find that in this day and age when someone says yes to you that it may not always mean ‘yes’. It may mean ‘yes for now, yes if nothing better comes up, yes if I feel like it that day’, etc. The meaning of yes which used to mean ‘yes I will regardless of what obstacles cross my path’ seems to be missing.

For me, when I say I am going to be there, or will help you or will do something, I will. You don’t have to ask me twice or remind me, you can consider it a done deal. I am not sure why today a lot of people don’t feel that way.

This past weekend was a prime example of this. I had hosted an Open House to promote my other business Your Inner Light, where I do Angel Readings, Dream Interpretation and Reiki. I had done so last year about this time and it was a great success. I cleaned my house top to bottom, did energy clearing and setting new, preparing food and treats (all homemade) in anticipation of my guests.

Now I realize with an open house that people do not have to RSVP but I had had 8 people who had given me a definite yes that they would be here. 1 pm came, 2 pm came, 3 pm came….not a soul turned up, not one. And no one had called, emailed or sent any other form of communication that they could no longer make it. I was thoroughly disappointed and felt like I had gone to all that work for nothing.

But nothing is for nothing (if that makes sense). In the end I had a beautiful clean house to enjoy for a while. And everything happens for a reason. I believe that my house really needed a good cleaning, both physically and energetically and that I needed a little motivation to do so. What we sometimes fail to realize is that the energy in our homes can get stuck and take up space, blocking other things that we want to come into our lives, whatever it may be, a child, a new love, car, friend, etc. If we don’t move it then that energy will just continue to block what it is we want.

That’s why they say it is good to move your furniture around or change the way you display pictures, etc. as it shifts the energy, frees things up and gets things moving again. The same goes for physically cleaning and getting into all those nooks and crannies that don’t normally get cleaned. I dusted picture frames, washed walls and outlets, windows and window sills. I drummed, I smudged. As I was cleaning and clearing I could feel the difference in the room. In fact it felt so good in here I wanted to cancel my date with my girlfriend this morning to just enjoy my house!

It is also healing for us physically to do that kind of thorough clean. It is like clearing our own energy, releasing things that we no longer need, whether physical items or energetically. I find it kind of like a ritual, I like to do it alone (usually with fantastic tunes) and I like to do it until I am done. I had offers of help so I could be done sooner, but I politely declined, because I knew what it would do for me.

It felt so good when I was done. I could notice the difference on the main level, how good it felt. I could see my entire kitchen table for the first time in months, having finally sorted through and put all the papers away. It was absolutely awesome!

Sometimes in our busy lives we need a purpose, a motivation to do the things we know we need to. For myself, I always left the papers because just looking at the pile made me feel overwhelmed and unsure what to do with them. But when I had a purpose, a mission, it gave me the motivation to just suck up and do it! and now I am so glad I did.

So regardless of the number of people I had come by on the weekend, it was not all totally in vain, because I have a feeling that I have just opened up the doorway and shifted some energy for some really great things to come into my life now (some stuff that was pretty stuck). In fact I am pretty excited about it.

Stepping Stones

I had the pleasure of participating last weekend in a fundraising event for The Salvation Army Agape Hospice. This was a weekend long event held at the Azuridge Hotel in Priddis, Alberta called Deck the Halls.

Matt Dusk

The weekend included a design competition, a moonlight gala and silent auction as well as a family day with sleigh rides, face painting and Santa Claus. It also included performances by Matt Dusk, singer, songwriter and producer of jazz-pop music.

I had the opportunity to be one of the vendors in the Christmas shop where people could come and buy gift items or participate in various causes. There were people there from Stars, Canadian Blood Services, Soapnducks, Pampered Chef, and Scentsy as well as myself from Your Inner Light, where I was offering Angel Readings and associated products such as oracle cards and books.

The day was a busy and festive one with the room decorated for Christmas with delightful themed Christmas trees and displays, a giant gingerbread house and people milling through taking a look at the fares. We also enjoyed a performance that day with Mr. Dusk and what a show that was! He is a young, lively and vibrant man who definitely loves what he does. He is playful and young at heart and had everybody tapping their feet or dancing.

The thing that I found interesting about the crowd was the feeling in the air. As an Angel Therapy Practitioner® I can pick up on the vibe in the air, the feelings of people and atmosphere. Though there was a festive theme, I noticed that there were a lot of people in the room who though smiling were feeling sad inside inside, a little lost, who were searching for something and ready for a change or a shift in their lives. There were people who were together yet you could sense that they were miles apart. And I knew I was there to help.

My belief is that this is all related to the global shift that we are experiencing now, as we approach December 21, our bodies are changing and transforming, adjusting to the next level of ascension. For some of us that means that we are changing at rapid rates, which is why many of us are experiencing severe mood swings, fatigue and restlessness in our lives. We are not always able to pinpoint what is making us feel this way or why, but we can feel it. We are all opening up to our intuition and on different levels of our spiritual journey. Yet while some of us are accepting or seeking out the guidance to help us through, others are not sure what to do with it all or don’t know where to go.

My best advice to everyone is to be gentle with yourself during this time of change and to seek support in whatever form works best for you, whether it be through workshops, books and learning or finding kindred spirits to discuss and support you through your process. Because it is a process and a change and we all need support and to be patient with ourselves. One of the things we know is change is constant, so we will never be where we are forever. So if we are feeling sad or searching, the good news is you will not be here forever, you will find your answer and the happiness you seek. I encourage people not to be afraid and to move forward fearlessly. Do things that comfort you and speak to your soul. Know that you are not alone, that we are all going through this transition and change to some degree and that we are doing it together.

This is a very exciting time to be on the planet and believe it or not we all chose to be here at this time! This means that our role is just as important as the next person’s and we all have a part to play in the creation of the next steps for our planet and our lives.

This is why I feel that it is important for me to get out there and be present in the world, sharing my knowledge and skills with those who need it. I believe that day I connected  and talked with those that needed it most. Though some of the other vendors felt that the crowd was small and that the day was a bit slow for business, I felt that it was extremely successful. I did exactly what I needed to do that day. I also believe that by simply being present my energy may have helped someone I did not directly connect with and that’s what makes this all worthwhile. To know that I made a difference, which is what I think many of us strive to do/ feel in our lives.

What is my point? Don’t give up, don’t shun an opportunity because it doesn’t look profitable. You never know what connections or stepping stones you have placed by participating or who you may help. I helped that day at the fundraiser and I am sure, set the foundation for something else to come, which though not clear to me yet, I know will become clear.

Remember that everything you do affects another and that your contribution to the world is always significant; and as you enter the holiday season know that not only are we celebrating Christmas this year, but the planet and the wonderful transition that we making together towards a brighter, better and more peaceful planet.
