Bring Back Harmony, Balance, Love And Compassion To Your Life
How is your connection to the Divine Feminine these days? How’s your awareness of those qualities within you that are gifts of the feminine face of God? Ancient humans regarded the Divine as an amalgam of feminine and masculine powers represented by gods and goddesses who together made up the wholeness of creation. The yin and yang of Asian culture symbolizes this unity. Over time, the workings of human history upset the balance and blocked the feminine powers’ expression in worship, culture, and society.
Haven’t we now discovered that denying Mother Nature, one aspect of the Divine Feminine, is never a good idea? Today, the gifts of the Divine Feminine are needed like never before to bring harmony, balance, love, and compassion back to a troubled world. You have within you the capacity to awaken and develop your personal connection to the Divine Feminine. Think how important this can be in your own life and in all the lives that surround you.
Have I mentioned that the Divine Feminine is not for women only? Masculine and feminine energy lives in everyone. Ultimately, all men and women are spiritual beings, made of energy, all on spiritual paths of growth and gradual enlightenment. In every life, essential feminine energy represents the best and most beautiful aspects of what you offer yourself, your loved ones, and the world. Whether expressed through career, family, artwork, taste, or style of living and dreaming, each one of these is an important component of spiritual life.
By honoring and connecting to the Divine Feminine, you honor yourself and all of creation. Achieving awareness of the Sacred Feminine helps you appreciate the feminine qualities in all people and in all areas of life. Feminine energy helps build respect for Mother Nature as well as tolerance and compassion for the life passages of others. Wholeness, harmony, inner and outer peace, oneness, and connection are the gifts of awakening your Divine Feminine energy.
So how do you start on this life-saving, heart-opening endeavor? Here are some suggestions to help you bring forth your inner Divine Feminine:
1. Nurture—Embrace the Energy of Mother Love.
The Divine Feminine is a nurturing mother and you deserve to feel the warmth of her love. It’s easy to get so caught up in day-to-day worries and to-dos that you forget to take a moment to care for and love yourself. Remember not to lose touch with the Divine Feminine love inside you! Breathe deeply, smile, and take a moment – even when things are at their most chaotic.
Make it your priority to do the things that allow you to connect with your deepest self and to feel true appreciation for who you are. For me that includes taking time to meditate (the effects are almost magical) and spending time in nature. You can use your personal journal to record your self-discoveries and observations as well as things that inspire you each day. Honor your life and you honor the gift of life!
2. Create—Rejoice in the Gift of Making Things New.
The Divine Feminine brings forth new life, creates beauty, and fosters growth. Are you using your unique gifts, those that bring you joy? What engages your mind, body, and soul and makes you feel you are doing what you were born to do? Can you sing, play an instrument, dance, draw, or write? Maybe sewing, cooking, or interior design is your gift.
Do you have a knack for politics, religion, or the healing arts? Whether you cook a beautiful and nourishing meal or grow a rose garden that inspires the neighborhood, each act of creation is a gift to a world in need. You are contributing to life, and the world needs your uplifting contribution, given in your unique, magical way. Your soul longs for self-expression, and the vibration of your joy extends forth and revives the world around you.
3. Serve—Spread the Love and Share the Hope.
The Divine Feminine is life-affirming and life-supporting. Once you embrace self-love and express your creative joy, you can pass on the same positive, healing energy to others. Take a few moments for the people you come into contact with every day. Make the effort to really engage as you give time and attention to your friends, your co-workers, your children, your partner.
Put down the cell phone, the book or the TV remote and let the people that you love know they have your full attention for a moment. When you’re out in the world, give strangers that you meet the gift of a joke, a smile, or a compliment. Make routine interactions more fun, and allow the light of your Divine Feminine to shine forth!
And, finally, give yourself permission to let people know how you feel about them.
- Let your favorite teller at the supermarket know that you make a special effort to check out in her line.
- Tell a little girl that you love her pink rain boots.
- Take your dog for a walk and appreciate her loyalty and love.
- Write a letter to a teacher or mentor, thanking them for inspiring you. Let your family members know what they mean to you, how special they are.
- And, if your significant other needs help in awakening their Divine Feminine qualities, be a role model for unconditional love!
