As part of the virtual book tour for Yvonne Perry’s latest book, Shifting into Purer Consciousness ~ Integrating Spiritual Transformation with the Human Experience, I am sharing an article about embracing divine feminine energy. You may learn more about Yvonne and her book at http://shiftingintopurerconsciousness.com.
Yesterday, the tour stopped at Jacqueline Stone’s Blog, On the Journey. Tomorrow the tour will be at Pat Bertram’s Dragon My Feet blog, and I invite you to visit that site to learn more about the spiritual transition we are currently in. See the full tour schedule at http://dld.bz/byrF7 .
Embracing Divine Feminine Energy
The Divine Mother is known by many names in all religions and traditions. In Christianity, she is the Virgin Mary. In Hawaii, she is Pele. In China, she is Quan Yin. In India, she is represented by Shakti and many other goddesses. Many of the goddesses of Pagan religions such as Wicca come from Greek/Roman mythology. Regardless of what you call Her or what religious path you follow, the Divine Mother can be a nurturing presence and a powerful guide during your ascension process.
Men and women possess both the masculine and feminine aspects of the divine. In each individual one aspect is typically expressed more than the other. What we want to achieve is a balance of both these energies. Since there has been an excess of masculine energy in the male dominant patriarchal system under which we have lived with for thousands of years, it is necessary to bring more divine feminine energy into our lives and onto this planet just to tip the scales toward equilibrium.
In a patriarchal system, the strongest or wealthiest person is at the top of the pyramid. Those who are more vulnerable are crushed under the weight of the pyramid; so, they either submit or they are ignored/eliminated. A system heavy with masculine energy is very linear (i.e.: we are mental creatures, who just happen to live in a body), controlling, and greed-based as seen in the operation of banks, governments, the Federal Reserve, Big Pharma, and the stock market. We put our money and our faith into a system because we want to be able to take care of ourselves when we reach retirement age. We could be investing in a matriarchal system or “global village mindset” where everyone—especially elders—is valued and cared for. These are two very different ways of taking care of people as they age. One is built on self-sufficiency and the other is built on community.
Fear-driven patriarchal systems are currently going through shock and starting to crumble as the Divine Mother energy is arising on Earth. We are shifting to a matriarchal system where there is consideration for every person and each person has an equal voice. Rather than controlling others, we are beginning to honor a sense of community in which we rely on gifts of intuition and share in order to meet one another’s needs.
Yvonne created her own version of a prayer to invoke the presence of the Divine Mother. I invite you to listen to the MP3 “Divine Mother Puja” at http://weare1inspirit.com/spiritual-audios.htm.
Yvonne will also be Shelly’s guest on Journey Into Consciousness Radio Show. You may want to listen to that interview here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/journeyintoconsciousness
