We stand at a critical moment. Our Mother, the Earth, is calling to each of us to embrace her. To accept our partnership and to rise up, speak out.
We must move from a patriarchal society to a balanced one. To do this, each of us are called to create change for a better world through our love of nature.
Anne Baring tells us that each soul is a part of the web of the universe, the cosmos, the planet on which we reside.
Ancient cultures understood the delicate balance between all life and themselves. They took care to live in harmony. However, with the rise of agriculture and patriarchy, the Divine Feminine was trampled. Control, consumption and degradation became the norm. The very feminine nature of bringing forth life, of being productive — became dominated by men. Through this division, what was once revered was considered filthy, profane. Better not heard or seen. That was then. This is now. We are seen. We are heard.
We no longer live in a state of ignorance of the power of our Mother. Indeed, her cries are all around us. Songbird populations are diminishing. Oceans are warming. Forests are being cut in vast swathes. Fishes and corals are disappearing. We, joined through the web of creation are their voices. We can restore harmony. Balance.
We. We are the ones who to use the power of our heart-felt conviction to bring about a new reality. Healing what has been abandoned, neglected, rejected. Through the Divine Feminine, we bring the energy of life and light into dark corners. We now call out in full voice.
Consider these five ways to begin to use your Divine Feminine:
- Become aware. See where in your community — and our Mother — needs you. Perhaps it is the need for a new nature preserve? Or the reclamation of a garden plot in the middle of the city? Perhaps it is the need for you and your community to care for abandoned animals?
- Make a plan. Once you are heart-directed, determine the thing you can do to make change. Find others who are like-minded. Outline your steps. Clarify your priorities.
- Take action. Realizing that our Mother is estimated to be 4.54 billion years old, we recognize that we must plan our actions with an eye to the long game. You may achieve immediate results, but take steps to ensure that the result is sustainable.
- Evaluate. After action evaluation allows you to gain insights into what worked for you and what brought the change you desired.
- Do not rest. Realize that a commitment to protecting life is — lifelong. Continue this cycle. Which is, in truth, the cycle of the Divine Feminine.
