The Power of the Divine Feminine

section_divider

The divine feminine is the creative force that is within all things and all people, including the masculine.

It is the nourishing, powerful, life-giving energy of love, compassion, peace, and transformation.

It is a deep well of ancient knowing, with roots that stretch back through time itself.

It is a returning to the natural world, the natural cycles, and the heartbeat of this planet.

It is mirrored in the ebb and flow of the earth and is an honoring of these tides.

It is a trusting of our own natural rhythms and our cycles.

Connection to the feminine is tapping into a deep allowing, a big YES and a surrender into the wild magic and sacred mystery of the universe.

As we embrace the divine feminine, we awaken to all the parts of ourselves that have remained hidden and gain a deeper connection to our feelings, our emotions, our pleasures, and our bodies.

The feminine is very much a guide to the deeper parts of ourselves and in connecting with her, we open ourselves to the mysteries within ourselves. We open to the parts of ourselves that we had been previously taught should remain closed.

The divine feminine to me is a sacred embodiment of personal authentic truth, a bare and raw look within at our own deep knowing, our magic and feminine wisdom. It’s an allowing to the primal, wild and raw parts of our nature and the flowing, calm and soothing energies as well.

It’s an opening to all that we are without needing to define it.

It’s an allowing that each of us embodies Her in different and uniquely amazing ways and there is no one way to be the divine feminine, but an infinite amount of expressions.

When we tap into the feminine, one of her aspects is rebirth, and in this way we have deep power to move through our own transformation processes and heal our wounds. The feminine is deeply nourishing and nurturing and has the ability to transform anything.

The feminine force is one of connection, to ourselves and others. It’s not a segregated energy but an inclusive one. It’s not about hiding it’s about opening and revealing. It’s a deep dive into the great mystery.

There are so many expressions of the divine feminine just like the faces that the goddess wears in mythology. She can be the life and grain giving Demeter or she can be world-altering fiery Kali. The feminine is both fierce protector and care-giving-mother. She is a double edged sword of creation and destruction.

The divine feminine isn’t about fitting into the boxes that we have been taught that women need to be, it is about breaking the barriers on these and really flowing to the edges of our truthful authentic expression of all that we are.

We are limitless faces, goddesses and archetypes, and yet with the patriarchal chains we’re told we can only be certain labels. The divine feminine is about freedom, it’s about embracing the unfolding and being present with what occurs organically for us in this moment.

The reemergence of the divine feminine is also a benefit to the masculine. When we tap back into the mystery of the divine feminine and bring it back to a place of reverence, this opens a place of allowing within the masculine as well to explore their own inner wisdom and ancient knowing in a much deeper and more powerful way.

We each of us have masculine and feminine within, each of us in different measure and expression. The re-connection to the feminine creates a portal for the masculine to connect deeper with, not only his natural feminine expression but the masculine as well. This place of allowing casts off the masks that the masculine was taught they need to hide behind and emerges them in a deep unfolding into their own truth.

The patriarchal boxes that defined the feminine for thousands of years have also tainted the masculine. In this deeper allowing, they are able to dive deeper past the boxes that were created to fit them and to explore what it means for them to embody the masculine.

It is a homecoming for both men and for women as we merge deeper with the power of the feminine. It’s moving with the flow of a more creative and organic life, a more embodied and connected way of being.
The masculine was born from the womb of the feminine so you can’t have one without the other. We’re interwoven and eternally connected, both within ourselves and externally.

The masculine was born from the womb of the feminine so you can’t have one without the other. We’re interwoven and eternally connected, both within ourselves and externally.

The divine feminine is an opening to truth and authenticity for everyone. When the feminine is denied, it’s like denying life itself.

To plug back into the feminine is plugging back into the primal creative force of the universe.

The feminine returning to a place of reverence nourishes the whole planet.

    I love the line “The divine feminine is an opening to truth and authenticity for everyone.” It’s definitely part of my conception/definition of the concept. Thanks for sharing.

    • Kat Tozier Feb 10, 2016, 11:57 am

      Exactly what stood out for me, Andrea – I strongly believe we need to find the balance and synergy of masculine and feminine and every woman who boldly embraces the divine feminine helps make that shift.

      Powerful words, Ara – thank you for sharing them!

    The divine feminine is present everywhere, within and without. Even in Christianity, although the radical conservatives world have you believe otherwise. It’s the Holy Spirit that connects us to everyone and everything that makes life so beautiful. We are birth and life.

    This is beautiful, especially:

    “We each of us have masculine and feminine within, each of us in different measure and expression. The re-connection to the feminine creates a portal for the masculine to connect deeper with, not only his natural feminine expression but the masculine as well. This place of allowing casts off the masks that the masculine was taught they need to hide behind and emerges them in a deep unfolding into their own truth.”

    I am so glad to make your acquaintance, Ara. You are a sister in spirit. Blessed be!

    I love this powerful explanation of the divine feminine and really resonate with the line, “The divine feminine to me is a sacred embodiment of personal authentic truth.” To me the divine feminine is the willingness to show up authentically and from vulnerability express one’s truth and beauty. Thank you so much for your wise and empowering words Ara!

    My favorite line was about breaking the boxes and patriarchal chains and labels. Right on, sister! I also agree that “The divine feminine is about freedom”. Excellent post, thank you! Tweeted to my followers via @GoddessKerriLyn.
